Brian is the opposite of what I expect from most real estate agents. First, his buyers and sellers are his first priorities after his faith and family. He is always there to answer questions and is very patient. He does a great job communicating any and all information as it comes in and has a very straight forward, honest, and gentle way of communicating what he knows to his clients. I have never seen a realtor work so hard and diligently to get the parties involved a practical, fair ,and realistic deal.
Time can be of the essence when it comes to securing a great buy. Brian definitely hit me a home-run by helping lock in a good deal before it was gone. One example of the many that shows he provides high-quality, first-class service to his clients.
He always managed to find time in his schedule that catered to my busy/crazy work schedule. His extensive knowledge of the Grand Rapids area gave me terrific guidance and a true leg up when it came to searching for houses.
All in all, good availability coupled with great responsiveness (phone, email, or text) while providing accurate, forthright knowledge is what made him a five star realtor in my book.
I have never had a more hard working, client centered real estate agent. He put our needs and wants above the mighty dollar. Anytime we had a question or wanted to go look at houses, he made himself available at a moments notice. In the end, Brian helped us find our dream house and sell our previous home.
Brian is a great guy with an extensive knowledge in the home buyer/seller field. He was always able to answer our questions and get us into multiple homes even on our hectic schedules. You can't go wrong having him represent you!
Brian is the best realtor I have met in Ten years. He sold my house in 4 days. I would recommend his services to anyone buying or selling their home. Thanks for over delivering in all aspects of your job!
Brian is a true professional. Before connecting with him, we ended up firing our old agent. We thought that it was our job to look for the houses, ask all the questions, and plan our schedule. I did not know what I was missing.
He was very professional. He first sat down and discussed our needs vs. wants and really listened to us. At every house we went to, he took notes of what we liked and did not like to better fit our needs with the house search. And finally, when we did find a house, he helped us negotiate a great deal and answer all my questions. Being a first time home buyer was not an easy task, and I am truly grateful that we found Brian to help us out. I would not work with anyone else.
I highly recommend working with Brian McDonald.
Brian is a great guy who has gone above and behond the call of duty for us in our home purchase... I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell!!!
Brian is a great realtor I would recommend him. He works for you. He is trying to find you the best house for the lowest price you can get. He is about finding you the home you want not trying to tell you everyone is offering on it so you better offer on it. He is not pushy. Realtors who truly work for you are hard to find and Brian is the best realtor that I have worked with. We walked into a house that was junk and Brian said I can't even sell this one to you. It was terrible. But he knew that it was not worth the price. He did his research for the area of the house we would buy. Overall Brian had done a wonderful job helping us find our first home. I would recommend Brian to anyone who is buying a home because he is one of a few out their in this job who knows what they are doing and isn't trying to scam you.
My experience with Brian was less than expected. As a buyer's agent, I expected Brian to be more involved, and looking out for my best interests. He sent me listings of homes that were not up to my standard of purchase, and tried to persuade me into buying the first home I saw. I got the feeling he didn't think I was worth his tme.
Brian is polite,and knowledgeable. His advise was invaluable. We had immediate responses which resulted in a very quick sale. We especially appreciated his explanations as he walked us through the sale process. I would highly recommend his service to anyone. Sincerely, Jim & Cheryl Yerke
Brian was very professional. He made buying a home easy and fun. I would recommend him to anyone interested in buying a home. He was very prepared, patient, and friendly. I felt like he was a friend at the end of my home buying experience. The next home I buy I'm going through him, that's for sure. One more thing, I had to jump through hoops, because the house I wanted had different requirements, and Brian worked so hard for me to make sure I had everything I needed. Thanks again
Brian is the person to hire if you like making ALL the decisions. He's willing to take you as far as you like, but he himself will not commit himself or engage in your decision in buying or rejecting a home. Yes he is very good at getting a hold of, by any communication means, and even better at trying to be the first one to show a home, he's ready to have you be the first to make an offer! Unfortunately, even though he does work for the "benefit of buyer" he's limited (only in my opinon) to how well he can decipher the true "condition" of a home.
I would recommend him only to someone who knows home infrastructure well, and i would not recommend him to anyone who is brand spanking new in the "home shopping" world.
Brian was very professional and very friendly and down to earth. He was very helpful in informing us of how the process worked and made sure we understood each step in the home buying process.
I took a chance on Brian - and I'm really glad I did. I was moving from Virginia back to Michigan and needed to look for properties before I made the move. The reason I picked Brian was that he was the first one to respond the email inquiries I made regarding promising properties I had seen on Zillow. To make a long story short, Brian made the entire process so easy for me, and I'm no "property virgin" - I've bought and sold many properties in the past and this was one of the best experiences I've had. He was more than willing to check out the places I was interested in (from only having seen them online), taking and sending photos, and giving me his honest opinion. He made sure he knew exactly what I was looking for - and I ended up buying my dream farm! He dealt with a few episodes of "seller's drama" himself - leaving me to just enjoy the entire process. I can't recommend him highly enough. In addition to his professional expertise, he's simply a really great guy - I'm so glad I took that chance on him! Thanks, Brian.
Brian was very pleasant to work with, and very sincere in finding me the perfect home. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to buy a home. He let me know what was going on at all times, and was very in detail about what he saw was a problem if he saw one. Brian is very dedicated in his work and again very professional in finding my perfect home. He went above and beyond my expectations. After looking at a lot of houses he knew what I was looking for and did not hesitate to find more homes he knew fit my needs. After many phone calls and meetings he seemed like more of a friend than a realator. I cant say enough if you are looking to buy a home contact Brian McDonald at 5-star real estate and tell them a very satisfied customer sent you.
Brian was very knowledgeable about the area that we were looking to buy in and kept his feelers our for potential homes coming on the market even before they hit. The more and more houses we saw with him the more we knew exactly what we were looking for so that when we found it Brian knew almost before we did that we had to put in an offer. He was a spectacular Realtor and I would most definitely recommend him to anyone looking in the Hudsonville/Jenison area!
Brian was very diligent in his search for our home, and when we found it did an amazing job of not only negotiating a great price, but making sure that we closed on time, even though it required him covering some of the duties of the listing agent.
He also helped us sell our current home. He sold it quickly and for more than we had it listed for - great job!
Brian helped us recently both with buying and selling a house and he was spot on with all of his recommendations. We feel we did so much better using an experienced realtor than trying to figure out this crazy process on our own. It was very reassuring to have someone walk along side of us through everything. Brian did an excellent job of explaining all of the procedures and also helped us get the best prices possible, on both the purchase and sale end of things. He definitely earned our confidence, we would highly recommend him to anyone.
We hit the jackpot when we met Brian. Brian was my girlfriend's and I's realtor in Spring of 2015. Being we were first time home buyers we knew nothing about the process or even what to look for in a home. Brian was a Godsend and led us every step along the way. Brian is not only an amazing realtor, he is simply an amazing guy. I would recommend him in a second to anyone, especially if you are looking to make the buying process easy. Even after we got our home he was calling to make sure that everything was ok. He goes out of his way and is not pushy or just trying to make a sale, he very clearly cares about the people he works with and really puts his all into his work. Quite literally Brian will walk through ankle deep mud in nice dress shoes to show you a horse barn in the pouring rain. Now that is customer service! Without Brian my girlfriend and I would not be in our dream home, thank you so much Brian and to all looking for a great realtor he is your guy.
Brian became like family! He's a great guy and an awesome relator! He showed us every house we wanted to see and then some! He was always one step ahead of us and making sure the process was moving forward in the purchase of our home!
Brian was the perfect realtor for us. He was honest and trustworthy throughout the entire process. As first time home buyers, he explained the process simply and was willing to explain terms and processes to us multiple times. He was flexible in working with our schedules to show us homes and knew the market well. To say he is committed to his job is an understatement. He was constantly looking for new listings, but also knew when to advise us to walk away. Brian listened to what we wanted and found houses to fit it. We could not be happier with our choice and would not buy another house without him.
We were not going to list our lake home in the winter but Brian say he would get it sold and he did! Within 60 days of signing! So we would recommend Brian..,mentioned him to our friends and they are now listing with him..Really down to earth, friendly, hard working man..
Brian McDonald was a pleasant surprise for us :) He was our third attempt in finding a realtor to sell our home, and he exceeded our expectations. Honest, knowledgable and hard working, Brian is a realtor I would highly recommend.
Brian did a wonderful job, he helped us every step of the way. It was our first time buying our home and I’m sure we bothered him an unreasonable amount, but he was great about it and made the process so easy for us. I’m sure we will be using Brian again in the future.
Basically if you need to find or sell a home Brian McDonald is the only option if you want things to go smooth and quick. Brian makes the home shopping and selling experience as painless and simple for his client as possible the entire time. Brian goes the extra mile and makes things happen. We sold our home in three days and found our new home three days later. Closed on both homes the same day. If that isn't getting things done, I don't know what is. Bottom line, Brian gets it done and you are wasting time not having his be your agent.
Brian is an experienced, straight-up professional. He was confident that he could sell our house after our first listing with another agent expired. A few weeks later, it was sold. I'm not sure I can say anything better than he sold our house just like he said he would.
Brian is a high-character guy with good interpersonal skills that make him easy to work with. He followed up on potential buyers of our house until we got the offer we needed.
Brian is awesome, he is personal, professional and works very hard. Brian sold 2 houses for us as well as helped us get our dream home. He always answers his phone unless he is helping another client and then he calls you right back as soon as he is free. I highly recommend Brian wether you are
Brian was so helpful in our recent purchase of our new home. He was very responsive and always willing to go out of his way to help us. We had a difficult seller we working with and Brian handled everything with professionalism and patience. We will definitely go to Brian as our realtor in the future.
Brian was great to work with and took good care of me through my home purchase. He was very responsive to my questions and even went through my inspections with me. When negotiating price he was honest and helped me make valuable decisions.
Was always in contact with me, was very honest when looking at houses if there were any problems, and showed me an area I never thought to look at and now I love it
He was extremely helpful and kind throughout the process. Seemed to know right from the beginning what I wanted/needed. I would recommend Brian to anyone!
I had an amazing experience working with Rebecca! She was able to help me on short notice set up lots of showings when I was coming in from out of town for the weekend. I was able to find my dream house and she was great in every step of the process - from showings, to negotiating and all the way through the closing (and even after!). She was amazing to work with and I would recommend her to anyone looking to find their dream house!
She is a very down to earth real person, doing the best job for her clients that she can. Working with her was like working with family. We got our dream home and sold our current home all inside one week. We could not ask for more. She know the markets and tells you how it is. She is really works hard for her clients.
Brian and his team did an excellent job with my home listing. I had it listed 2 other times to no avail, but Brian got it sold for me. He kept me informed and negotiated to get the best deal possible.
Brian is a professional, for his line of work.My experience with Brian was flawless.Very friendly and just a great guy.I would recommend him to anyone.
