Some Words from Our Raving Fans!

Bret helped us sell and buy a house when we moved, and did a great job at both…As first time sellers and second time buyers, we didn't know exactly what to expect in two very different markets…Bret walked us through both scenarios with ease, explained everything in advance so we knew what to expect, and made the entire process enjoyable…I particularly appreciated his financial market analysis for each property we were interested in. You don't get this with many realtors… Bret could back up everything he proposed with examples and numbers…On the selling end, he offers guarantees to sell at or above market value within 45 days before you agree to work with him, so we knew exactly what we were getting into…we closed in 31 days for about 10k more than we expected (always a nice bonus!)…Bret helped us strategize how to sell our house by making it warm and inviting during showings while keeping it secure the rest of time while we were away. Our buying experience was much more difficult. We gave Bret our budget and a very loose set of requirements… I also have very specific tastes and preferences so cheap flips were out of the question … he knows what types of houses have potential… He found us a 1970's house with good "bones" on a two acre lot that we fell in love with. The only problem was that it was about 50k overpriced…Bret crafted an offer for 70k under the asking price to get their realtor’s attention and let them know that we meant business but weren’t willing to overpay. 5 counter offers later we were under contract for a price that we didn’t think would make value, but also required the seller to pay for the appraisal costs so we could back out without losing a dime… when the house didn’t make value as expected, Bret used this as leverage to bring them down to right price. We will definitely hire Bret again and we recommend him to anyone in the Phoenix area.

We had no idea at the time what all it (the new build process) would involve and having Bret by our side was invaluable. He was patiently there with us every step of the way for six months and never hesitated to answer all my many, many questions. He also got answers for us that the builder refused to discuss with us and saved us on numerous occasions when the builder's representative tried to glaze over things that we had rights to. Their rep works for the builder, not the buyer, so I highly recommend hiring Bret to look out for your best interests… we also had to perfectly time the sale of our current home in order for everything to close properly. Bret helped us figure out exactly when to list, what price to list at, and did a great job with presenting our home perfectly on the listing. He also talked tirelessly with the buyers’ agent to make sure we were getting the amount we needed to put down on our new build. We were actually under contract in 36 hours when 2 of our neighbors were on the market for 6 months before being under contract! (Bret) is a great agent because along with his vast knowledge and experience he is a great man of integrity. He truly is an advocate for his clients and wants the best for them.

We are so glad we chose Bret as our realtor! We found a property that we wanted to purchase and needed to sell our home to make it happen. Our home sold after only being on the market for a week. The photography of our home and listing were beautiful and almost made us want to keep it! He kept us aware of any changes and was very proactive and helpful, even while we purchased a home in much need of repair, he was aggressive in helping us get the best price on all accounts.

Bret did a wonderful job of making the sale of our home both fast and easy! Before our initial meeting, Bret had already prepared an analysis of the comparable homes in our area and was able to set a realistic and competitive sales price. Bret provided us a status update each week through the entire process and it was a great tool for our very busy schedules! Bret handled each interaction with the utmost professionalism and was enjoyable to work with. There were several occasions when Bret went way above and beyond by even dog sitting for us!!! I would absolutely recommend Bret to get your home sold quickly and efficiently!

Shipp Family (Anthem, AZ)

Bret worked tirelessly for me for a long time trying to find the home I had described, and with a set of impossible circumstances. Bret only had one answer for my wife and I, "I'll make it happen." Bret has the highest integrity, and has invested in this career as a true professional. When you retain Bret as your realtor, you are basically getting a real estate consultant as an added bonus. I highly recommend Bret Ceren to be your personal real estate professional.

Fehrenbacher Family (Waddell, AZ)

Bret was able to understand our requirements and research homes that met our criteria. He not only used the MLS but visited the homes to be sure it would be worthwhile for us to visit. This was especially helpful since we were purchasing from out of town and our time in Anthem was limited. During the mortgage and contract phase he coordinated between the different parties to be sure things remained on track and explained to us how the process works in Arizona. A total professional.

Greenhut Family (Anthem, AZ)

Bret was amazing throughout our whole process of looking at homes through the buying and closing of our chosen home. His response time was always immediate. He watched out for our concern's and kept us abreast of changing market trends as well as advising us on things to look out for - often we would become excited about a house only to discover some potential problems. The house we did find and close on is amazing and much of it is due to Brett's diligent effort in getting answers to our many questions. Patience of a saint, he has...I would recommend Brett to all of my family and friends. We already miss interacting with him...

Paz Family (Phoenix, AZ)

Bret was involved from day one with a commitment to sell our home and to achieve the maximum value the market would provide. He is thorough from start to finish and easily accessible at all times through the sales negotiation and closing process. He makes a commitment and utilizes his skills to maximize results and reduce your stress! We highly recommend Bret if you are needing to sell your home.

Shelton Family (Cave Creek, AZ)

Bret is an excellent agent. He made the first-time homebuyer experience seem easy. Bret remained in constant contact with me, the mortgage company I used, and the seller's agents. He worked constantly to ensure I received forms to sign in a timely manner. He is extremely knowledgeable and provided good input and made recommendations. Bret is personable, hardworking, and trustworthy. If you want a job well done, Bret is the man for the job!
