Frank Castaneira
Retired at Taller de Paquito

“For 4 months my family attempted to sell our family grocery store without a listing agent. Brian approached us politely with genuine curiosity and desire to help. We decided to list our property for sale with his team after serious discernment and listening to how Brian could help us. Brian encouraged us to list at a higher price, unlike other realtors, who try to convince you to lower your asking price. Within days he produced a full asking price offer $350,000 above the appraised value or our property. Throughout the Christmas holiday Brian kept us appraised and followed up to the very end to ensure our closing went off without a hitch. I highly recommend Brian to anyone looking to optimize the sale of residential or commercial real estate.”

"Brian helped my family purchase a home in Florida during the winter of 2021. We had a good sense of where we wanted to purchase and were introduced to Brian through a trusted professional. Brian tactfully helped us understand the seller’s market at the time and suggested best practices for securing a good deal on a property. Although Brian is not an appraiser his background working with corporate underwriters and appraisers paid off and helped us peg the value correctly and position our offer to win. There are many realtors in Miami, but none I trust more than Brian. He is a true professional worthy of your trust"

I moved from Southern California to South Florida and needed to find a home fast! Brian listened to my criteria, presented several opportunities that were in line with my needs, setup an efficient morning of showings, and negotiated the offer on my first choice property. Trust Brian to take good care of you while you select a home in South Florida.

I have met many real estate agents in Miami, but Brian is the best and the only one I trust. He provided a consultative approach that included, pros, cons, and factual data throughout the home buying process. I got a very good deal on a luxury condo due to Brian's ability to professionally communicate and negotiate with the seller's realtor. As we approached the closing, Brian followed up consistently and put my mind at ease as I spent time with family in Europe.

Brian is a knowledgeable, conscientious, and professional realtor who makes it his mission to satisfy customers. Over the course of two 1/2 days of showings Brian showed me the best luxury condos in 3 markets- Brickell, Park West, and Edgewater. He used a very consultative approach based on educating me quickly about the markets. I have zero reservations recommending Brian to anyone looking for an honest realtor who can make highly informed suggestions for buying and selling real estate.

Over the span of a week, Brian helped me to find a place to live in the Brickell area of Miami that was everything I could have wanted it to be. In my price range, in an area I wanted to be in, and a beautiful apartment. I had my choice of a variety of apartments and ended up with one I am thrilled to be in. I highly recommend Brian if you are looking to buy, rent, or sell in Miami. Especially because some brokers for places we were looking at couldn't even be bothered to arrive to show their apartments, Brian will not only give you the minimum service that some won't, but he will go the extra mile.

He not only found a Director level opening at a company less than 15 miles from my home, he also helped me prepare for the CEO/COO interviews. Brian's communication with the company's VP of Operations and me was nothing short of exceptional - beyond my highest expectations. In fact, during the end-game compensation negotiations, he secured an additional $15K in salary for me after he discovered a mistake in the company's initial offer letter that I had already decided to accept as it was! Talk about going the extra mile!"

Jim Nudelman
Senior Sales Training Specialist at Carrington Mortgage Services, Mortgage Lending Division
October 3, 2007, Jim was senior to Brian C. but didn’t manage directly

"There are a lot of great things that can be said about Brian Smith. I spent a considerable amount of time with Brian during his tour through the Accredited Management Training Program. Brian's was one of the quicker studies in the program as in a matter of only a few months, he was already closing $4 million in loan volume. To put this in perspective, the average account executive closed slightly over $1 million two months out of the program. Brian exceeded this by nearly 400%. Why was Brian so successful? Several reasons: 1. Brian is very adept at building BNI (Business Network of Influence) groups. In fact, he does so very quickly. 2. For as good of a salesperson as he is, he is also intelligent. Very intelligent. He asks good questions and always asks for good examples which get to the heart of the issue. 3. Brian served in the Navy. In fact, he was a leader in the Navy. I think that it would be a HUGE mistake for any company to NOT bring Brian on board as part of their sales team. He is highly goal oriented and achieves way beyond what he sets out to accomplish. It would be a great pleasure to work with Brian again in the near future."
