"Having grown up in the area with Brett, he was able to find the exact home for me in my price range. As a first time home buying, I had very little knowledge of the home buying process. Brett was hands on the entire time and alleviated a lot of the pressure. I have recommended Brett to a number of my friends who have decided to move into the area. He is completely trustworthy and caters to your needs both logistically and financially."-Nick P
Brett is young, very knowledgeable, and honest. We didn't want a realtor that was going to sugarcoat things for us - he kept it real, and that goes a long way when you are making such a large, time consuming, and important purchase. We found much more than we expected in Brett. He is always reachable, and always quick to respond , which we appreciated. At first we felt very uninformed about the buying process, until we met Brett. He walked us through every step of the way - from the beginnings of figuring out how many rooms we wanted, to the financial aspect. Brett was there the entire way. We definately recommend him to all our friends. -Audrie Luna
We used Brett as an agent because of his extensive knowledge of our purchasing area including builders, other realtors, schools, etc... And he was great to work with. He was always working around our schedules, this meant showing homes in the evenings and weekends. He was also willing to do research and show us hundreds of homes until we found "The One". Brett is extremely patient... We never felt pressured to make a decision. We have used brett for our second home and were completely satisfied. -Juliana and Marc Routzong
Having lived in Oak Forest for nearly 4 years, I recognized the Hartman and Associates name. I am in the mortgage business, and I had heard numerous good things about Brett from a number of sources. We were selling our first home, so I wanted a realtor that was in tune with the likely type of buyer we would have, and more importantly, I wanted someone who I was certain had a deep knowledge and understanding of our particular market area so that we priced our home correctly, sold it in a timely manner, and maximized our profits. Brett is Knowledgeable of our market area, very responsive, straight forward and upfront about what our expectations should be when pricing our home and the expected sales price, he is easy to work with and very accommodating. Being in the real estate/finance industry, we felt like the selling process was relatively quick and easy compared to what I have seen before. We had plans to do some upgrades to the home before selling, thinking we would get a higher sales price, ran the plans past Brett, he told us what to do and not to do, and ended up saving us a good deal of money by not over-improving the property. Brett told me the number he thought we would get for the sales price, and our home sold for that very same price. When purchasing our next home, we again had our own ideas, but after following Brett's advice we ended a much larger home for our money. I have referred several people to Brett, both sellers and buyers, and I tell them all of the reasons I used his services. Most importantly though, I tell them to listen to his advice, and their expectations will be met and exceeded.
I was informed that Brett provided good customer service and had a strong understanding of the neighborhoods that I was interested in . He was willing to do the little things that made my search for a new property a pleasant experience. After being in my home for almost a year I am confident that I bought a property that was consistent with exactly what I was looking for when I began my search. Brett worked hard to provide me with options that fit the characteristics that I was looking for. I think that Brett's commitment to providing superior customer service as well as his knowledge of the city of Houston make him a wonderful option for anyone looking to purchase a property in Houston.
"I was using another real estate agent and wasn't happy with the progress made after 2 weeks, we did not receive any listings or shown any properties. I've known Brett for around 8 years and gave him a call because there were properties available I wanted to see. Right away Brett took the lead and gave me information about all the properties and took us to see 3 homes that weekend. He is dependable, acts with urgency, and has a great knowledge of the area. The buying process was seamless, it was much easier than I expected. If you are considering using Brett as an agent, I say absolutely do it, he will meet all of your needs. I will definitely return to Brett if I ever have to sell my current property or look to purchase other real estate in Houston." -Nick & Mia
Brett knows the Oak Forest subdivision as good as anyone out there, He works hard with honesty and integrity to make both buyer and seller comfortable with a market transaction. He is always very accessible and hard working. Brett handled a very complex transaction involving multiple levels of financing and custom construction in a way that flowed smoothly and kept all parties informed and comfortable.
