It's been my privilege to work with homeowners all around Middle Tennessee, helping them achieve their goal of a successful sale. Sitting at the closing table with a happy client is truly the most rewarding part of my business. Please take a look at what some of my valued clients had to say about their experience in working with me as their Realtor:
103 Kimberly Drive
To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing these few words as a way to thank Brian Bennett for his absolute professionalism and expertise as my real estate agent. When I first met Brian I could tell he was a highly professional person and he demonstrated that character by taking great care to analyze our home. He suggested ways to change furniture, paint colors, and the removal of some furniture to increase the chances of selling our home. We took those instructions and followed them as he suggested. Brian also spent several hours taking the best pictures possible of our home in order for each room to look it’s best. The result was phenomenal.
What was the result you ask! We had a contract on our home in less than two weeks. While we were excited about this, Brian did not celebrate victory just yet. While our home had a contract there was also a contingency on the home of our buyer’s. Brian continued to market our house and ultimately we had a better offer come our way with no contingencies other than the norm. Our home was sold in less than a month and a half.
Brian, thank you for your professionalism, attention to detail, and willingness to work until the job was done. You are the best! -- Tom & Debbie P. 9/16/2014
9012 Grey Pointe Court
(This Brentwood home was listed with another Realtor for 187days without success. It was re-listed a second time with a different Realtor for another 3 months, with no results. The seller then re-listed the home with me, and after applying my marketing plan, and without changing the list price, it SOLD in just 4 days at 98% of list price!)
"Brian did an outstanding job of marketing our home and facilitated a rapid closing of the sale. We listed with him after two other agents had been unsuccessful in bringing offers on the home. He did a terrific job of creating an online presence so that we had a large number of prospective buyers over the first couple of days after the house went on the market. This was without changing the price relative to the previous attempts to sell the home. The first family to view the house made an offer and the home was under contract within a few days of listing. Brian did an excellent job of negotiating the terms of the sale to bring a strong price and brought us to a smooth closing very quickly. I could not be more pleased with his professional approach and his flexibility in working with us as sellers." -- Jeff & Anita C., May 2014
322 Battle Road
(This amazing 5+ acre gated property was listed three seperate times with other Realtors for a total of nearly 2 years on the market without any success. The seller then re-listed the home with me, and after applying my marketing plan, it was under contract within 6 days, closed with 27 days, and sold for 95% of asking price!)
"Dear Brian, It is with a distinct pleasure that I and Amelia wish to extend our compliments to you for your very professional and successful sale of our home. After two years of trying to sell our picture perfect home, in this very difficult market, we were left quite discouraged. With three separate listings and one high profile auction, there were no positive results. Then you arrived on the scene February 12th, offering a combination of high quality photography and a structured marketing plan. On Monday, February 24th, the MLS listing was launched. By Friday, February 28th visitors started arriving; two on Friday, four on Saturday and one more on Sunday. An offer was promptly presented on March 3rd from a pre-approved buyer. Almost unbelievably, everything accelerated to a very prompt closing on March 27th, only thirty (30) days from listing to closing and move out. Than you again Brian. You brought closure to a problem which seemed almost insurmountable. Sincerely, Richard & Amelia J.", March 2014
1071 Auldridge Drive
(This Spring Hill home was listed with two different Realtor. The first for 190 days without success. The second time for another 98 days, with no results. The seller then re-listed the home with me, and after applying my marketing plan, it SOLD in just 26 days for full list price!)
"I am very happy to recommend our Realtor, Brian Bennett. We listed our home for sale with Brian after we had worked with two other Realtors, and didn’t sell. The first time, our home was listed for six months, and the second time for three months. After those two frustrating experiences, we chose Brian largely because we were impressed with his marketing plan. We saw a huge difference right away, as we had lots of showings booked, and got it under contract with a FULL PRICE offer in just 26 days! It was exactly the result we were hoping for. Thank you, Brian!!" -- Phil and Kim R., April 2014
7816 Farmington Place
(Like so many of my Seller clients, they had been trying to sell their lovely Bellevue home for months without success. After their listing expired with another Realtor, they re-listed the home with me. I applying my marketing plan the Sellers received multiple offers, and acheived a successful sale for $100 over their asking Price!)
"It has been a pleasure working with Brian Bennett. Courteous and professional, very helpful and supportive not just in home marketing activities, but in working through any challenging issues with buyers and agents. The market placement he did for our home was excellent in terms of both high quality of photos, website posting, and handout materials. Our showing activity has been great as a result, and we had multiple offers on the home, eventually selling it at listing price. We will definitely invite Brian to support us in our future real estate transactions." - Alex & Yulia T., March 2014
1270 Meeks Cemetery Road
(This home was listed with another Realtor for 183 days without success. It was re-listed a second time with a different Realtor for another 180 days, with no results. The seller then re-listed the home with me, and after applying my marketing plan, and without changing the list price, it SOLD in just 45 days!)
“Working with Brian was truly a pleasure. He did everything he said he would do and more. My home had been previously listed with two other agents for a total of 365 days. They had no success. With Brian’s marketing skills it sold within six weeks. Any agent can list a property, but it takes a true professional to market a property to its best advantage. Thanks Brian!” -- Kathleen W., October 2013
849 West Hillwood Drive
(This home was previously listed with another agent, where it sat on the market for six months with very few showings and no offers. The homeowners re-listed the home with me, and after applying my 18-step marketing plan it SOLD in just 12 days!)
“We listed our house with Brian because he came in with a professional marketing plan and listened to what we wanted. The house had previously been listed for six months with another Realtor. Brian produced an outstanding MLS listing including superior photographs. We had over 20 showings in the first week! The house was under contract in 12 days and closed 25 days after that. He provided valuable and professional advice. The process went smoothly from start to finish. If you are looking for a real estate professional who listens to what you need and most importantly produces results, we highly recommend Brian.” -- Ed & Terry R., August 2013
602 Gen George Patton Road
(Just three days after I listed this home, it was under contract for $1,100 over the list price!)
“I’m very glad I chose to work with Brian. His advice was so valuable as I was getting my home ready for sale, and his marketing was exceptional. I received four offers in just the first 24 hours, and ended up exceeding my asking price! If you want to sell your house, definitely give Brian a call.” -- Marshall L., October 2013
613 Monte Carlo Drive
(This seller's own words say it all. SOLD in 14 days for 95% of list price!)
"Brian – I’m writing this to thank you for the fine job you did in selling my house. I first listed the house in December 2012 with another Realtor. Needless to say, it was a very frustrating experience for me as a seller.
I met you in early September, and you were able to immediately give me many pointers on things I should do to make the house more marketable. You even lined up people to provide estimates and actually do the work. After making those improvements and putting the house on the market again, we immediately began to see activity that led to the first contractual offer within a matter of days. We had 2 more offers, both at or near asking price, within a week and I had the luxury of choosing between the 2 offers. The one I chose then closed within 3 weeks. Whereas I had previously endured trying to sell the house from December 2012 to August 2013, you were able to help me get a closed deal within only 4 weeks on the market. I also appreciated the service you offered that notified me of any viewing scheduled for the house. It enabled me to keep up with the amount of activity.
I found you to be very professional and I enjoyed our relationship. I will gladly recommend you to anyone buying or selling and I offer you my endorsement. Feel free to use me as a recommendation at any point.
Thank you for the excellent results!" -- Ron W.
206 Smokey Drive
(This home had been on the market for 170 days with another agent, during which time it had very few showings and no offers. After the listing expired, they re-listed with me and without changing the list price, we received two offers, and the sellers accepted the second one, at 97% of their asking price, after just 48 days on the market.)
"Vic and I want to thank you for all your help in selling our home. When you met with us you said you could bring us the results we wanted through your marketing plan. You did what you said you would! You were an excellent agent." – Victor & Angela B., December 2013
1348 Camp Ravine Road
(Listed with another agent, 181 days on the market; no offers; expired. Re-listed with a 2nd agent, 185 days on market, no offers; expired. Re-listed with Brian Bennett; under contract in 29 days at 96% of list price!)
"When we were ready to sell our home, we met with several Realtors before choosing Brian. What impressed us most was his marketing plan, which made us feel confident in him and his ability to get the job done. We know that our market area (Burns) can be slower than other areas, so we were expecting that it would probably take awhile to find a buyer. So, we were happily surprised to get not one, but two offers, and get the home sold within a month. Thank you, Brian!" - Don & Tina J.
352 Ash Grove
(Former For Sale By Owner)
“Just a note to thank you, Brian, for the positive response we received from your marketing of our home. We had initially decided to sell on our own, as a For Sale By Owner. We did have some calls, but no real buyer interest, and ultimately decided to let a Realtor handle it. After meeting with Brian, I knew that he could market the house better than us. His professionalism in explaining all details, as well as his fantastic photography of the house, made us confident he could do the job. We immediately received several showings and two offers, one within the first week of listing. You may think you can make more money selling your house on your own, but you'll get much better results working with an experienced professional. I would recommend Brian to anyone looking for a reputable Realtor.” -Susan J.
8300 Sawyer Brown Road
(Here's another home that I was happy to get SOLD for my client, at 99% of their list price!)
“Brian, thank you for working with us to get our home sold. The way that you marketed our home was very detailed and strategic. The photos that you took of our home were absolutely gorgeous! We received showing requests within 24 hours of you listing our property. And, to get an offer within just a month was exciting, we were not expecting that so soon. Thanks again for making this such a pleasant process.” -- Yvonne & Brandon S., October 2013
121 Blackpatch Drive
(This home had been on the market for six months with very little activity. The sellers decided to take a new approach to marketing their home, and they re-listed their home with me. The result: SOLD in just over one month, for full asking price!)
“Brian, thank you so much for all you did with the listing and marketing of our home! As you know, we’d had it on the market for six months with another agent, during which time we had very few showings, and we were getting awfully frustrated. We then decided to re-list with you, primarily because we were impressed with your marketing plan. Everything that you did was FANTASTIC! All the write-ups and all the photos were just spectacular. The photos you took were the best property photos we have ever seen. And then to get it under contract just 34 days after you put up the new listing, and at full asking price!! That was so much more than we could have hoped for. We are so grateful to you for getting this done for us!" -- Tim & Sandra G., October 2013
“Thank you Brian, for all that you did to get my home sold. I am still amazed that you managed to get it sold so quickly, and for $500 over my asking price. I truly did not expect to achieve such a great result in this market! I really appreciate the level of professionalism you demonstrated in working on my listing, and your great communication with me during the process. Because I’m out of state, that was very important to me. Even being a real estate veteran myself, I have to say I learned a few things from working with you – things I will probably now use in my own business. Thanks again for helping me reach my goals for the sale of my house!” – Eddie R.
"I had been having no luck in selling my condo, so I decided to re-list it with Brian. He made the listing look really great, and I started to get a lot of showings booked, and then I got an offer. Unfortunately the buyer needed to use FHA financing, which my condo complex would not accept. Brian went above and beyond, by finding a different lender that could work with the buyer, and enabled the sale to move forward. He definitely went the extra mile to make the sale happen. I would recommend Brian to anyone who needs a Realtor!" - Jill H.
“We wanted to write to tell you about the wonderful experience we had with our Realtor, Brian Bennett. We previously had put our house on the market with a different Realtor and had very few showings. We decided to re-list our home with Brian. Brian not only assisted us in determining a price we could be happy with but also marketed the house beautifully. We sold our house at list price within the first 3 days on the market and closed on the date we had hoped for. What really impressed us about him was his assistance in finding us a new home. Brian spent countless hours personally visiting houses with us to find one that fit our family. His commitment to finding the right home for us was amazing. The house we eventually chose was greatly influenced by his opinion. To our amazement, two months after we have moved in, this has truly become our dream house. This is a credit to Brian’s hard work and dedication!” - David & Mindy S.
“Last summer I had been working with another realtor to sell my home with no success. A neighbor recommended Brian based on her daughter's successful results with him. Without reducing the price, we actually had showings being scheduled again and within 3 days, an offer. Before I could accept the first offer, we got a second offer for the full asking price! We would definitely recommend him to anyone we know who needs to sell! ” - Joseph & Alice S.
“My house sat on the market for over 90 days with other agents without a single offer, so I re-listed my home with Brian. I received a full price offer and sold my home!" - Bonnie L.
"Dear Brian, I just wanted to take an opportunity to express my gratitude for all of your assistance throughout the sales process of my home. You always listened and kept my best interest at hand. You understood at the beginning that this was not just a house to me, but a home that shared a lot of love and heart. Once we had a buyer, your help over the month of inspections, tours, questions, etc. was invaluable. You were able to answer all of my questions and as a first time seller, that was a lot. The weekly, even daily calls as the closing date neared were so helpful. During a very stressful time for me, your professionalism in carrying out your responsibilities as my agent was beyond reproach. Your attention to all the details, responding to phone calls and keeping me abreast of everything that was happening certainly took a lot of the pressure off me. I have already told some of my friends that if you are in need of buying or selling a house to contact Brian Bennett. He will do right by you. I wish you continued success and I will definitely call on you again in the future. Thanks!" - Audra C.
"Brian is a great realtor to work with. When we decided to sell our house, I was already working in another city. It was stressful for my family. With extensive experience and marketing capability, Brian made the whole process smooth for us. He was always available for questions and kept everything under control. He also works very well with other realtors and was able to close the deal on time. We couldn't be happier that we were able to sell our house quick. I strongly recommend Brian to everyone." - Wen Guo
