    Roger and Carolina Kilbourn

    Brian and his company were the most understanding and caring people when selling property.  This man went above and beyond the call of duty.  I cannot express enough how pleased we were with Brian and how he really cares and concerns for his client.  I would recommend him in a heart beat to anyone when wanting to sell a home.

    Leo and Shirley Reardon

    Please consider us friends and know that Suzanne and I will always give you and your team the highest recommendation whenever possible. Thank you for meeting and exceeding our expectations.

    Dave and Suzanne Geraci

    Friday night negotiation! Let me know another offer was coming in so I had a chance.

    Suzanne and Curtis Hebeler

    They seemed to be available "24/7" - The team was upbeat, reassuring, and eager to help.  Answered our questions and was unfailingly cheerful.

    John and Rebecca Trono

    Everything went smoothly; the house sold the first day! Brian was clear in communicating, confident as a business person and kind to us and the buyer's agent.

    Dan and Laura Busse

    Brian has always looked at the "big" picture and has always tried to do or advise about what is best for us. He doesn't seem to be just after a listing. He seems to genuinely care. Mindy Stone, from your Closing Department, was a pleasure to work with too. I felt like I had a "friend" behind the scenes taking care of all the details. She is definitely an asset to the company process.

    Nancy Bean

    Brian did all he could do to get the best price for my property. Century 21 Advantage has a good staff and was very helpful and friendly. Brian gave very good advice to make things go easier for both the buyer and seller. I would recommend him to my friends.

    Harold St. Amour

    I was very happy with Brian's hard work and his strong drive to get the best possible price for my house.

    Joe Carroll

    I had a buyer in four days! The company supplied me with information about every step involved in the closing and what I needed to do to the property beforehand.

    Ruth Davis

    Brian was attentive and always extremely helpful.

    Tania Hofsess

    Very professional and down to earth. Brian understood totally that we wanted to sell and find a new start. Our home even sold faster than we expected.

    Don and Phyllis Bushey

    Although I initially considered selling my home "by owner" I quickly realized how ill-equipped I would have been. Brian French brought me four full price offers within 24 hours and thanks to his negotiating skills, we sold the house for 6K over the asking price! Wow, what a tremendous result! Thanks for ensuring that my home sale went off without a hitch - you REALLY earned your fee!

    Stuart and Julie MacDonald

    Brian did everything that I had expected. He took a tough sell and got the job done fast. He did more in the first week then the previous listing agent/company did in 6 months! Thank you to Brian and Mindy for a great job of marketing, selling and closing on this property.

    Randy Kimball

    Totally professional through every step. I always felt as if they were more concerned with the quality of service rather than just making the sale.
