First, I've never written a review, but this warrants me writing one. My wife and I are both in sales related fields and we know what its like to work hard for a client. Max did just that...and it wasn't like it was even a million dollar sale. We were interested in a small half acre tract of land and Max worked his tail off for us. From obtaining copies of the HOA documents to getting us access to the property. When the "sellers" agent was unresponsive, Max went above and beyond to get the information we needed. I will definitely be using Max again when purchasing property in the area and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a trustworthy, hardworking agent.

Brandon was awesome to work with! He was always quick to return my calls and answer my questions. Our process was pretty quick. Brandon, was in constant contact with me during each step which was great!
