Helped me buy home
My wife and I have been long time owners in Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota. One day we crossed the bridge to Gaspariila and feel in love with the place. We found a house near the beach that was for sale, grabbed the flyier. Thankfully for us it was a house that Brian Corcoran was handling. Within an hour, Brian had picked us up and had several houses to show us...totally no pressure, low key...did not feel like we were being a burden and also did not feel a gun-to-our-head to make a transaction. We looked at several houses, condos, etc. Brian's knowledge of the island was fantastic. We eventually settled on a house, 406 steps to the beach. Brian was extremly helpful post-closing, going above and beyond to help us find insurance agents, house cleaners, home watch people...even helped us buy a golf cart ( as that is how eveyone gets around on the island). I have bought and sold many homes in my 50+ years on this planet and have never been so impressed as I have been with Brian and his team. Less ... More

Brian worked with us patiently for over 3 years. He kept us informed of new properties when they came on the market. He made himself available when we were able to see properties and he was there every step of the way for us. We would highly recommend Brian.

Brian Corcoran is a very accomplished real estate professional. My wife and I already had some well developed, and narrow, criteria as to the location and type of home that we wanted to purchase. Brian did not waste our time with properties that did not fit the profile. We ultimately purchased a home that was not listed due to Brian's extra leg work and his strong relationships in Boca Grande. We closed on the property last week. Brian was proactive and helpful from the time we signed the contract to through our closing. This was a great help to us, since were out of state buyers. We would highly recommend Brian for real estate transactions in Boca Grande and the surrounding area. Less ... More

Brian was extremely responsive and always a professional. Brain has a great disposition, easy to communicate with, honest, and provided his own opinions even If it differed from ours which helped enable us to make informed decisions. If there were questions or concerns for which he did not have an immediate answer he always found out the information and did not leave us hanging. We would absolutely work with BRC group and Brian again.

We were delighted with the professionalism and his intuitive attention to what direction our interests ended up going while searching for a new home. Brian was able to show us options in several areas of Placida and was able to fine tune what he showed us based on our reaction to each. What we had planned on being a one to two year search ended up with an offer in less than two weeks and closing in four. Brian's knowledge of the area, and what was available, made the process so easy for us. We highly recommend him to anybody looking to sell or buy real estate. We will tell all of our friends and highly recommend him as the person to contact. We can't thank him enough. Less ... More

Thanks guys for the wonderful review. I have to say this past couple of weeks, starting with a 2 year + plan and finding exactly what you were looking for in 2 weeks just means that it was meant to be. Looking forward to sharing a glass of wine on the deck of your future new home.

Unbelievable! There aren't enough stars to rate our realtor! From day one he gave 100% to sell our home and find us another. He worked long and hard to make us very happy customers, smoothing the way during both transactions. He easily caught on to our vision and showed us only what fit our desires. Never too busy for us, always on top of it, very knowledgable, easy to work with -- all this with professionalism and a great attitude. Brian has his heart in his work as well, and we felt that from the start. We have already recommended Brian to friends. Less ... More

I contacted Brian to help me find a condo. He was very professional and at all times I felt comfortable with him. He is honest and reliable and I wouldn't hesitate to pick up the phone or recommend him for another real estate transaction. The purchase was made from home in Massachusetts and my presence wasn't required and went off without a hitch.

Thanks Jim. Was a pleasure working with you on this purchase. I look forward to working with you in the future here in Placida Florida. Best....Brian

I am a retired Realtor myself, so my expectations are pretty high. Brian met and exceeded all of those expectations. His demeanor was professional, and he was more than skilled. His no-drama approach to the transaction made things very pleasant. I would recommend him highly to others. Note: I owned a property which was not on the market, and he approached me with a potential buyer. I did not go through a listing period with him, but he coordinated the transaction from the contract negotiations to closing. A+. Less ... More

Thanks so much for the wonderful review. I think I can safely say that the no drama approach and pleasant results were a combination of a professional seller and cooperative buyer as well. Hope to see you and your family again in sunny Boca Grande.

We had an outstanding experience working with Brian over nearly five years until we found a property that was right for us. Over this period, Brian kept in touch and forwarded opportunities whenever he saw something that he thought might make sense for us. I think we saw every deal that came up during that time frame. His knowledge of Boca Grande real estate is immesuarable. What really stood out was his ability to see properties in a different light and point out where there might be value. He knows all the players (builders, architects, owners) and really helped us to land a great property. He is highly responsive, extremely pleasant/patient to work with, has a good humor about him and gave us excellent advice on the negotiation. He's aggressive and tireless without being overbearing. We could not have been more pleased. Less ... More

Found Brian as a result of favorable Zillow favorable reviews from other home buyers. Gave him my wish list (price, location, home amenities, etc.) and he showed me only those home that fit the criteria. He was spot on as the the market price of the home I ultimately purchased. Subsequent to the purchase, has been instrumental in assisting with finding local contractors covering everything from lawn care service to pool maintenance. Due to his high professional standards and timely response to all my needs as an out of area home buyer in Placida, Florida, I highly recommend his services. Less ... More

Brian is the most professional real estate person I have ever worked with. He is the consummate professional. He knows the area very well and will go to great lengths to answer questions. For instance, when we had questions about the room in an area when the sleeper couch is unfolded, he sent me pictures with measurements of the space. It made buying property in Florida from Ohio very easy. When we had questions about a bike path, he sent information from the county commissioners for verification. Brian replies back quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend Brian. Less ... More

Brian has an excellent knowledge of the area. He is highly invested and connected to this part of Florida. He is an honest person that one feels the trust with immediately. He spent a good amount of his time with me for a property that was not going to make him rich. He is quick to return calls, texts. etc. I would definitely use Brian again and recommend him to anyone.

From our first contact with Brian he was extremely helpful and very accommodating. During the entire process of purchasing our home he was on top of every aspect of the purchase. Brian made sure there were no surprises all the way through closing. Brian is a very special person and a consummate professional. His service extends far beyond the purchase and he continues to provide us assistance when needed. Thank you Brian for helping make one of our dreams comes true!!!!?

I could not be more pleased, Brian and his staff has helped me through complex real-estate transitions over the past year . He was able to give me many different options. He was there at all hours of the day to answer my phone calls, usually immediately, not days later. Over the years I have had several different realtors/brokers and until dealing with Brian and his staff I never felt like they were truly working for me. There was months of work to find what was best for me. Brian has been a great help in understanding the procedural , contract , and negotiations of these transactions. He has great knowledge of the local market and local service providers. I recommend Brian to all of my family or friends. Even after transactions have closed he still has been available to help with my questions. Less ... More

When my wife and I first thought about looking for a home in Florida, we were given Brian's name by a friend. Living in Canada, we knew we would need a real estate agent we could trust and would have to rely on to do a significant amount of leg-work for us to find the right home, in the right location, at the right price. From the first time we corresponded via e-mail and then spoke on the phone, I felt very comfortable with Brian and very confident in his abilities. More importantly we developed a good rapport immediately and I always felt as though Brian was always working with our best interests uppermost in mind. I received constant, informative reports from Brian who answered all my questions promptly and worked with us closely all the way through the purchasing process right down to helping us find an insurance agent after the property closed. He made the entire process very seamless and I found him to be extremely honest and upfront about all the properties we viewed, the one we purchased, as well as a couple he advised us to walk away from. All of this was done by e-mail and phone contact and we ultimately purchased our home without ever doing a personal inspection based largely on the trust we developed in Brian. I would highly recommend him in any real estate dealings and in fact have done so to a number of my Canadian friends who are considering making a purchase in Florida.

Brian worked with me and my family for two years. He took the time to figure out exactly what we wanted and assured us that if we were patient we would be able to find something we really liked in our price range. After making several offers, we found the perfect property at a price we could afford. He literally made our dreams come true!
