Steve and Christina Brown were patient helpful. They worked with us until we found the right home at the right price. They never missed an appointment. Their weekly emails with homes which met our description were helpful in locating our home. They are honest and trust worthy!

Christina and Steve did an awesome job for us, we were on a time crunch and they helped us get our house sold fast! My husbands job was moving us out of state so they made sure to get our house on the market right away. They also worked with us when we were out of state. They got us a great price for our house. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to sell their house! Thank you both so much for you hard work!

My husband and I worked with Christina & Steve this winter to buy our first home. They were able to guide us through a process that we were pretty clueless about without ever feeling discomfort, pressure, or anxiety! However, the most impressive aspect about the Browns is definitely their responsiveness; Christina was so quick with all responses during the offering/negotiating aspect of the purchase-- both when it came to simple inquiries or when it came to obstacles in the inspection/ closing process; this is something that we have since realized is so important as we hear about friends or coworkers losing out on houses they were excited about because their agent waited hours or days to send their offers in. We closed on the house within a month even with a few kinks in the inspection-process where we found issues with the house and things needed taken care of immediately (for example, the water main shutoff was about to crumble and needed emergency repair during the inspection process, among other things that couldn't be foreseen prior to inspection), and the Browns took care of everything immediately. We would definitely recommend the Brown's to anyone looking for a successful/smooth/fun home-purchasing experience. We were VERY impressed with their service, their attitudes, and their effectiveness in getting the house we wanted. Less ... More

Working with the Brown team was such a great experience. My husband and I were first time home buyers and they held our hands through the whole process and we never felt stressed over paper work or unsure of how to proceed. They were so accommodating to our difficult schedules and having the two them working as a team was such a convenience. If you are looking for a realtor to help you find a home the Brown Team is a great choice!

They are so nice and so helpful! we are in the process of buying our first home and they have made us very comfortable and are very timely in their responses :) once we find the right home we look forward to buying with their help! Update: we found our home and they were there every step of the way to help us and answer all our questions. They found us exactly what we wanted and it was such a pleasurable experience to work with both of them. They both far exceed our expectations and we could not have had a better experience ! I HIGHLY recommend the Brown team, they are awesome :) Less ... More

We can't even begin to tell you how much we recommend The Brown Team. They over delivered on both selling our existing home and finding us the perfect new one for our growing family. Without their guidance and support, we would have been sunk!!! They easily navigated a less than ideal negotiation process and were partners with us step-by-step throughout the entire process. Do yourself a favor and go with the best... You won't be dissapointed!!!!

We were ready to downsize and purchase a property closer to work, we met Christina when looking at a house she listed and we signed her team on as buying agents. They helped us locate a great neighborhood and a great house. Both Steve and Christina were very responsive with our numerous questions and we have already asked them to list our current house to sell. The whole team was great!

The best experience ever. Christina and Steve did not only help us find the right house for us...they helped us find a home. The difference between them and any other realtor that we worked with is like the difference between night and day. I can say this because we had been looking for three years. Another agent (not associated with the Brown Team) who will remain nameless lost patience with us during our search and basically made us feel that we were wasting time looking for a home or that we were just not ready yet. Christina and Steve were not only patient with us, they were available every step of the way answering questions and providing assistance no matter when we needed them. We thank God that He used Zillow to lead us to the Brown Team and will forever be greatful to them! Less ... More

We could not be happier! Steve and Christina are wonderful to work with. We had been referred to a different Realtor and he was not helping us. After becoming very frustrated with him, we saw the reviews of The Brown Team here on Zillow and gave them a call. Christina told me they would take care of us and they did....fast. When I say fast, I mean it was less than two months from the first phone conversation to moving into a new house. I will refer them to everyone I know!

We loved Christina and Steve, they worked with us for over a year to find a house. Christina was our main contact and was always very prompt to call us back and answer any questions that we had and helped with things we didn't understand. She showed us as many houses and worked very hard to show them to us within a day or 2 of our request often rearranging her personal schedule to help us. She truly wanted what was best for us and not what was best for her commission. She is very knowledgeable in the field, we have recommended her to everyone we know. Both myself and my husbands parents will be moving in the next 12 months, they both met Christina and loved her and plan on using her to find there new home and sell there existing house. I really can not say enough great things about them!!! Less ... More

We are very pleased with the Brown Team! We were new to the area and they made us feel comfortable and were very pleasant to work with. We worked with Christina and Steve, and they were both very knowledgeable and extremely personable. The house we decided on was a Short Sale, and the entire process was way more difficult than usual (according to everyone involved). However, Christina and Steve were great to work with. They worked through the situation with us and were very timely getting paperwork to and from us. We can't say enough good things about these people. We HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!

After finding multiple positive reviews for the Brown Team on Zillow, I called Christina Brown on a Friday afternoon. She answered the phone and spent 20 minutes talking to me about our home-buying needs. I was quite impressed with the time she took with us from the very first moment. We were first-time buyers and she took us through step-by-step, always helpful and gave us both time and advice. She was courteous and professional, but also very personable. She was available to answer most of our many phone calls, and when it was necessary to leave her a message, she returned our calls promptly. Christina took us through over 20 home showings, and she went out of her way to adjust to our schedule. Days, evenings, weekends...she was always there for us, even in the busy Spring season. When we finally found the home that was right for us, Christina guided us through the negotion, contract, and loan processes. She was there for us right through to the end, until we had the keys to our new house in our hands! After all was said and done, though she was our agent, she had also become a friend. We would highly recommend The Brown Team and, if the occasion should arise, we will turn to them first with any home buying or selling needs. Less ... More

We were first time home buyers with lots of questions.We looked at many properties and made several offers before we found the right one.They were always very patient and stayed up beat and positive through the whole 11 month process.They also set us up with a great lender.We couldnt be any happier. I highly recommend the Browns.

We were so happy that we made the call to The Brown Team office and spoke to Steve the first time we started looking for homes. We heard dedication in his voice and a we sighed in relief when we met he and his wife Christina for our first outing. They arrived prepared, with additional information on each home we were interested in, and was very knowledgable on which types of homes would qualify for the different loan options that were available to us. Our home buying story spanned 12 months, 8 outings looking for homes, 7 sales offers, 4 signed sales contracts, and 2 lenders. Steve and Christina stuck through the hardest time as the seller of a property passed away just days before closing. Christina fought hard to get our earnest deposit back and we pressed on to eventually find the perfect home for our young family of 5. The Brown Team even suggested an awesome Lender to take over our file when we finally recognized that our original Lender just wasn't working that hard for us. I know that Steve and Christina Brown will go leaps and bounds for their customers. Their customer service is extraordinary. They never one time left me feeling like I didn't know what was going on. I would recommend The Brown Team to any and all of my friends or family who are looking for a hard working team to complete the purchase of a new home. A team truly can do more! Less ... More

Christina and Steve were great. They helped us find a home in less than 3 weeks! Anytime we needed them they were there. Since we bought a foreclosed home it took a little bit longer than we expected to close. Christina was great when it came to dealing with Freddie-mac. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

We worked with Christina from the Brown Team for four months. She was quick to assist us with finding a home that suited our needs. Upon finding the house of our dreams, we began a negotiating process that was arduous, but Christina kept the process moving and kept all lines of communication opened. She is dedicated to the task that is before her when she is working to get you the house you want. We were very impressed at the final negotiations and even though the process took almost three months, she was upbeat the whole time, encouraging us to keep moving forward. My wife and I would definitely recommend Christina and the Brown Team to whoever is looking for a home in the greater Kansas City Area Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
It took several days to get someone to call me back. We made an appointment and looked at several houses from a list of houses I'd seen on-line. I made of a list of must haves and have nots. I would go through neighborhoods looking at homes and ask about it and the answer was generally that wasn't a house I wanted. I never got a call back with a list of houses to go see after the first list I'd sent in.
Response fromThe Brown Team
Read the "rest" of the reviews. This is not how we conduct our team. We aim to give 100 percent effort to all we do. When given the chance we fix our mistakes and strive to do better. Not sure who this was, the situation, or circumstance. We?re honest and tell people what they need to know ?good? or ?bad? on a listing. Honesty is ALWAYS the best policy. ~The Brown Team

Steve and Christina Brown are amazing, patient, very great at their jobs and so very nice. Helped us through some problems and even waited patiently until the banks got their stuff in order. Showed houses to us whenever we needed and did everything to help us get our new house. My spouse and I are very happy with how great they did in getting the paper work all settled and the house finding process.

I started my house hunt about a year ago and after having bad experiences with two previous agents, I decided to change my approach in selecting an agent. Rather than finding an agent via "a friend of a friend", I searched Zillow for the top 3 most highly reviewed agents that worked in my area. I sent a message to those 3, asking 1) about their fees & commissions and 2) if they required a buyer's agreement (I avoid them until I'm ready to make an offer on the house). Only two of the three responded. The Brown Team was the only one that contacted me by both email and phone. I also choose them because I was getting a team of 3 rather than just one individual. Christina was personably, helpful, and efficient. She listened to my requirements and sent me an automated weekly listings based on my criteria. This was very help especially for searches on foreclosure listings as those may not show on Zillow for a few days. She was helpful in pointing out the good and bad details of a house, but never tried to sell me on a house or talk about things that weren?t relevant (as previous agents did). This kept the viewings efficient and I appreciated that. Within 3 months, I was able to close on a nice house for a great price. I would highly recommend the Brown Team if you are looking for a quick and smooth buying process. Less ... More

I worked the most with Christina. She was very excited for me to be buying my first house. She helped me get a great lender and they worked very closely which made the whole experience easier. After going over the types of homes I'd like to look for she set me up with my own custom website to keep track of all the available homes I could look at. She was careful to keep it in my price range and in the areas I wanted. At the beginning of my search i just wanted to see what was out there so she would check in about once a week. Then I got pre-approved and we got serious about what my options were. I had a FHA loan so I had a more limited selection, but we still found plenty to pick from. Christina helped me by pointing out things she though FHA would have a problem with. She welcomed my parents coming to the viewings as well. It's such a big decision to buy a home, and having my support team with me was really important to me. I recommend using her as an agent because she was personable and really listened to what I wanted in a house and neighborhood. Less ... More

We would highly recommend Steve and Christina Brown for any real estate needs. It had been 21 years since we had sold or purchased any real estate and we were apprehensive to say the least. A lot had changed in that amount of time and they were patient with us, as we had plenty of questions and concerns about the new practices. Working with Steve and Christina felt like we were "sharing this experience with friends" instead of working with people we had just met. After selling our home in a few weeks they helped us find a wonderful house that we plan on staying in for a long time. However, if that should change we would definitely call the Browns. Less ...

The Brown Team was excellent in helping me fulfill my first time homebuyer needs. Christina was constantly in contact and quick to answer any questions relating to the process or property itself. She was easily able to navigate through multiple neighborhoods; it only took us 3 hours to view 6 properties. I should note that the properties weren't close to each other, and we even added one at the last minute with no issues. I did not need to do a lot of negotiation, but she made the bidding and offer process less stressful. I would certainly recommend her and her team to prospective home buyers. Less ... More

In a market where seconds and details matter, Christina and Steve have gotten me the right information and paperwork at lightning speed, even way past business hours when needed.

The Brown Team is great, knowledgable, and promt! After finding a house online, we requested a showing with no response. A few days later we again requested a showing and Christina was quick to reply and schedule an appointment. The first realtor later contacted us, but it was too late. Christina had already won us over. She was fun, upbeat, honest, ready to work for us, and always with a quick turn around. We put her through 4 months of several house tours and a few contract attempts. Every meeting with her was a pleasure. We finally found our perfect house, the house in which we'd been looking at since it first came on the market and even put an offer on 2 months prior. Finally everything was in line and we settled into our new home, like it was meant to be. We consider Christina a personal friend and would strongly recommend The Brown Team to all of our friends/family. Less ... More
