    What our clients say about working with CJ Brasiel

    CJ made the entire complicated process seem straightforward and understandable

    As first time home buyers, we had no idea what we were doing. The entire process seemed like a morass of things we didn’t understand, legal details, and questions we weren’t sure if we were supposed to ask. We knew CJ through a mutual hobby and asked her to help us.

    She made the entire complicated process seem straightforward and understandable. None of our questions were trivial, and none of our requests were too minor. She took emails and phone calls at odd hours and from different time zones and did it all effortlessly. If she didn’t know the answer right away, she found out and got back to us. She suggested areas to look at that we’d never thought of, and backed up those areas with solid reasoning that reflected our lifestyle.

    We’ve been in the house for almost a month, and we have no regrets. We will absolutely work with her again, and recommend her to anyone.

    AU and RU…


    CJ just helped us buy a home in Willow Glen so I wanted to share our experience working with a great real estate agent.

    CJ’s goal was to understand what we wanted and make sure she found us a home that met our needs and wants. CJ helped us understand the local market, the neighborhoods and what we needed to do to get a home we wanted. She politely steered me away from homes she knew we wouldn’t love long term even though that lengthened the sales process for her. She never rushed us through the process and we made several offers before one was accepted. She never pressured me to make offers over my comfort level and pulled in many resources including contractors, inspectors, roofers, etc….to make sure we knew what we were buying and how much we would be spending after the sale.

    CJ is super diligent and organized. The real estate market is pretty complex these days but CJ helped us through every step. CJ goes above and beyond what I expected from a realtor. I highly recommend her.

    S.R. & A.R….

    CJ really listens

    CJ did a wonderful job as our real estate agent. She was very patient as we made up our minds deciding where we wanted to move and also what type of residence we ultimately wanted. She gave advice to our would-be sellers on possible improvements and repairs, and they ended up taking her advice before we ever made an offer. We’ve been living in our new home a month now and couldn’t be happier with the process or the end result. Not only does CJ have expert advice, but also she’s also very patient and really listens to your wants and needs. She always had a person to recommend for anything we needed. Several teachers and administrators at my school recommended her, and we understand why they did now that we’ve seen the results. CJ is in it for the long-term, that much is obvious. You can’t go wrong with CJ as your realtor. Thanks, CJ!

    I will, without any hesitation, recommend CJ for anyone who is looking to buy/sell. Thanks for a great experience!

    P.C. and J.T…….

    Knowledge and hard work made the difference

    Working with CJ on the purchase of our home made all the difference when it came to crunch time! Her understanding of the market, and how sales go in these odd economic times, was the essential key to closing the deal on our new home.

    She knew exactly how to navigate the waters of the bank-owned/short-sale markets, she knew about the current homes for sale. Without her knowledge and patience, we would have not had the opportunity to purchase the right house and the best price. We are planning on being in our home for quite some time, but if the need arises, we will definitely be working with CJ again. We solidly recommend CJ to our friends or anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
