Client Testimonials for Brian French Real Estate

"Online marketing was new for us, but effective. Virtual Tour had many hits as well as web listing. Kelly Farr gave great feedback about what we could do to make our house more saleable and marketable. She is aggressive and makes every attempt to make a sale. She would immediately respond to texts, emails, and calls no matter time of day 24/7; even on vacation."
Kathleen Conan

We chose Brian initially for his reputation and from our kids' connection.  After watching him handle this challenging deal in a very difficult market, we know we chose well.  Brian lead this thing with calm confidence that translated into our being calm and confident and reassured.  He is a true professional.  In the end, we also feel like we found a friend.
Roger and Carolina Kilbourn

Buying and selling your home can be confusing at best and painful at worst. To be honest, I was scared to death. Jim and Linda were so calm, reassuring, and patient – they were wonderful to work with. They listened to what we wanted and helped us achieve our goals. I couldn’t have asked for better service.
Tom Brennan, Former UVM Basketball Coach

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 $6,000 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!
Stu MacDonald, Williston
President, Closet Crafters

"Linda Murphy and Jim Ross were very pleasant to deal with. Very professional and always willing to accommodate my requests. I have already referred them to one of my co-workers.  Linda made sure I closed the house and did whatever she needed to close the deal. She generously contributed by reduing her commission fee." 
Kathy Whitehouse

Everyone at the office made our experience pleasurable and effective.
Colby and Kathy Halsey

It was a wonderful experience working with all of you folks during this sale.  The Internet sold this home; tour online was wonderfully done. Jim Ross and Linda Murphy were excellent and I could not have felt anymore comfortable during negotiations. Mindy (Closing Department) was wonderful during the closing time and kept on top of everything to the end!  Jim and Linda were on top of all items from teh start.  You felt they did care about me and the sale.
Eric Spero

Anna did a fine job overall. She kept in constant contact with me. I would certainly recommend her.

Lori was incredible! Lori was professional, sympathetic, and very helpful. She offered to help with a permit the seller's agent neglected and she helped me stay calm and kept us informed with each step. We will recommend her to anyone relocation to the Burlington area.

Our agent was excellent. She was always on top of everything and she always kept in touch with us, up to date, and informed about what was going on.
Jeff and Cathy Wrigley


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 definetely an asset to the company process.
Nancy Bean


Lori kept us informed in a timely manner which helped us to keep the stress level low. She kept us informed on market trends on selling a house during winter months in Northern New England. Lori was very professional and helpful.
Jim and Kristy Cardamone


Relatively new to the position and needed some assistance. All in all, I am very please with agent's assistance. I work 5-6 days a week, mostly in New York. Agent did plenty, including investigating cost of having carpets professionally cleaned.
Robert Austin


Brian did all he could do to get the best price for my property. The office  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.

I expected the selling of our house to be a difficult process. However, Kelly helped every step of the way from the fist time she saw our home and gave us suggestions to being with us at the closing. She answered all my questions and made me feel confident all would go well.
Jane and John Martin


Thank you to Kelly Farr for all that she went through with us to find our home. She stuck with us till we found the home we both enjoyed.
Keith and Amy Benoit


Jim goes the extra mile. Even going to the house to check on something discussed with agent for builder. We have an 18- month old daughter and four-year-old daughter. Jim was patient during our tour of homes and exceptionally helpful in distracting/playing with them during the closing; while focusing on the closing itself.
John and Anya Koutras


I had so much fun during the process of working with Linda and Jim. To laugh so much at a usually stressful time was refreshing. Linda and Jim were both excellent in all ways - they continuously went above and beyond to help with negotiations as well as finding answers to all our questions. We really felt the entire team was on our side and working for us from the beginning.
Jeffrey and Rebecca Lloyd


Leah was absolutely terrific! I got to know her on a personal basis and she made our first-time home buying experience great!
Richard and Hilary Crowell


I was out of state and completely at ease and trusting with realtors' proficiency. We were out-of-state sellers and Jim and Linda not only arranged to get our Certificate of Occupancies, they facilitated a rocky appraisal process and made sure our cats had food and water! Above-and-beyond service from day one. The Closing Department (Mindy Stone) kept me informed of any glitches and made sure I felt in the loop and knew everything was being done to smooth the process.
David and Chris Ray


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. Kelly Farr was always alert, concerned and looked out for my best interest.
Dennis Koepke


Linda and Jim were an absolute pleasure to work with. I will refer them to all my friends and colleagues. They were extremely responsive and accessible in the process. This was my first home - Jim and Linda were very helpful throughout the entire process with regard to providing me with crucial information about the home and the buying process in general.
Keith Westcott

Linda has been very easy to deal with on both of my transactions. I would highly recommend her. She gave good advice throughout. I was given good information and provided with feedback.
James Turcot


Thank you, Leah and your team, on the efforts in assisting us with our shopping, choosing and closing of our new home. I was very pleased with the level of care and professionalism Leah had demonstrated during the sale. Leah was very personable, very patient and spent all the time my wife, my father and myself needed to understand and investigate our questions and concerns..levels above expectation. Life moves quick, and when it moves our location, we will look to your team once again into the future to help us relocate.
Nathan and Edita Fiske


Kelly was tremendous from the start. Once she heard we were looking for a home, she kept in touch and sent listings every day. I have already recommended her to someone.
John Olson


Kelly Farr continues to exceed expectation. She goes above and beyond for her clients. CENTURY 21 Advantage is great.

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


Kelly did a wonderful job! Was always very prompt in returning phone calls and worked hard for us during the whole buying process.
Sally and Shawn Polley


The combined knowledge base that Jim and Linda have made this the 'special advantage' to have. I had a high level of interest of the builder. Jim and Linda's calmness and logical answers to my questions and requests gave me comfort that I was not alone.
Kathleen and Matthew Martin


We love Kelly to pieces! She is exceptional in every way and exactly the type of person you can count on during the stress of selling and buying a home.
