Brian Bartholomew

  • Brian helped me buy a home

      We are first-time homebuyers and I don’t think that our experience could have been better! Brian was incredibly helpful and made our experience very easy. Buying a home is obviously a big deal and can be very stressful, but Brian made the process a breeze!

    • When looking for a realtor we were asking all of our friends for recommendations and they would always say, " ours was good but..." So when a co worker referred Brian he said he was amazing with no negative comments at all! Brian was amazing and would recommend him to anyone! He is solely devoted to his customers and is always their if you need anything. He makes you feel and assume that you are his only client and will commit 100% effort and time to you! Brian was always willing to show a house no matter what time of day or night and always accommodated us. He is honest and a hard worker. I would recommend him to anyone and he would be the only realtor I would hire to sell our house. Amazing!

    • It was by accident that we came across Brian and our luck could not get any better. We are first time home buyers and Brian made the entire process very smooth for us. He was always ready to answer all our questions. We wouldn't have got our dream house if it weren't for his proactive steps to schedule a viewing as soon as the house listed on the market. He has made home buying a fun experience for us! We would definitely recommend him without a doubt.

      - Vivek More
    • I know these exceptional ratings, but Brian worked hard for that status. My wife and I used Brian to both sell our house, and help negotiate the purchase of our new home (a home that was being built). Brian handled the sale of our home being very attentive to our requests, and he also stayed on top of the builder and the many nuances of building a home.I highly recommend Brian. He made the process enjoyable, and handled any issues for us with professionalism

      - Mark L.
    • This one was my first home buying experience in USA. Brian Bartholomew was very professional had thorough knowledge about the property and its surroundings(which actually matters alot). He took little bit more attention for what I was looking for. He knows what I was exactly looking for and what will be best for me. He was very responsive whenever I had doubts about the property. After looking at the property he also gave me his suggestions about the value of the property vs the listing price. I strongly recommend Brian to anyone who wants to Buy/Sell home. He made the entire process pretty easy. I was Lucky to be in hands of such an expertise. Thanks Brian for all the help and finding my dream home.

      - Paruang Patel
    • We would highly recommend Brian. Brian helped us with both the sale of our house and the purchase of our condo. Brian has great knowledge of the Grand Rapids area and was a pleasure to work with.

      - Beth Trendt
    • Brian was awesome! He was very amicable and patient with us as we determined the exact area in which we wanted to purchase a home. He was always quick to respond when we contacted him with questions and requests for showings, and he provided us with all the information we needed to find our dream home and work through the process to purchase it. We would definitely contact him again if we ever find ourselves in the market for a new home in his area!

      - Paul Forton
    • Brian was great, he showed us every house we asked him to see, recommended houses that matched our search criteria, answered all questions we had, helped us through all the paperwork and most of all was extremely quick at responding. Nothing to complain about. I would definitely recommend him to a friend!

      - Eric Henderson
    • I am very fortunate to have had Brian as my real estate agent. He is personable, pleasant to work with, very knowledgeable, and readily available for touring houses and for any questions that arise throughout the process. Brian was committed to finding me the house that was the best fit, and I never felt pressured or rushed throughout the search. One time after we toured a house in the evening, Brian went back and toured the house in the daylight, revealing key faults that were not obvious at nighttime. Brian is also well connected, recommended to me a great and thorough house inspector. In short, Brian made an easily overwhelming process quite navigable and enjoyable. I would certainly recommend him to a friend!

      - Rony Berbara
    • Brian was my daughter's realtor and she recommended him when we decided to purchase a house in Grand Rapids. Brian was good about listening to what we thought we were looking for and sent us many listings to check out. We are in California but our daughter met Brian to check out the homes we were interested in considering. It took a bit of time but we finally found a place that we liked and was in our price range. We did it all without actually meeting Brian face-to-face but had many phone calls and he did a great job for us.

      - Mr & Mrs Tallman
    • Brian responded to us through a Zillow inquiry and we could not be more thankful. Buying a new house and selling our old house required perfect timing that Brian worked out perfectly. He sold our house in less than one week on the market getting top value while negotiating the price of our new home down. He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, builds strong relationships with everyone required for buying and selling a house along with his own professionalism. I can not give him enough praise for how easy he made this process to help us find our new home. If you dont work with Brian, you are not getting the best deal!

      - Doug Hill
    • Professional, knowledgeable, and caring. Brian Bartholomew really exceeded our expectations through the daunting process of finding a home for our family. Attention to detail, commitment to follow through with all our questions and concerns is, well frankly, a breath of fresh air. Brian possesses and exemplifies all of the qualities you would ever want in a realtor. We are delighted to recommend Brian Bartholomew to our friends and family in search of a new home.

      - Valerie
    • Brian was instrumental in helping us find and ultimately purchase the house we wanted. He scrutinized the house during the showing and was careful to point out anything he thought could be a potential problem. He listened to us and negotiated on our behalf even when he did not necessarily agree with what we wanted to do. I had 100% confidence in him throughout the negotiations and prior to closing. We could not be happier with the house we bought and Brian played a critical role in helping us to buy it.

      - Laura
    • By far the best realtor we have ever worked with. Brian is very knowledgeable and has a great way of talking to you about how things can/will happen. We communicated in person, phone calls, texts, and emails and we cannot rate him high enough in this area. Nothing was left to question, everything was well answered and we were fully ready when it came to closing time. Truly a man of his word and the way the world works today, how many people can you say that about. If you want to find a great house and sell yours with ease you need to contact Brian. We have worked with some good realtors, and some vary bad ones, but Brian Bartholomew is by far the best, do yourself a favor and call him today.

      - Scott
    • Brian did a great job finding my new home. He was always professional and approachable during the entire process. His knowledge and input during the search, preparation of the offer, maintaining an on-time closing and overall satisfaction resulted in the easiest real estate transaction of my life. Wish I would have met him years ago!!

      - Rebecca
    • Brian is an excellent realtor who always has the best interest of his client. Brian evaluated our property with complete precision which enabled us to sell our home quickly. His service from start to finish was impeccable and through the entire process we felt totally comfortable knowing Brian had our backs. What a great feeling!

      - Arthur Bowman
    • Brian was AWESOME!!!! He called me the minute I inquired about our home and he took us to see it that day!! We were in the office making an offer that night! Throughout the whole process Brian was more than a realtor to us, he became our friend! He stayed in constant contact with us and was always available when we needed him!! He made the whole thing a breeze and managed to get our closing date way sooner than expected!!! Thanks Brain! We look forward to working with you in the future!!!

      - Douglas
    • Brian was top notch in every aspect of our sale and purchase. He was very professional and worked very hard for us to succeed in our journey to find the perfect home. He was very receptive to our wants and needs in a home. Highly recommend.

      - Brady S.
    • I can't begin to describe in words JUST how amazing Brian was during our real estate journey. Brian definitely has the customer-first mindset. I felt that I had a pretty exclusive list of things I wanted in a home and Brian took the time to listen to those needs. I never felt pressured when looking at homes or that he was getting frustrated when I wanted to give up and throw in the towel. I can honestly say that it will be strange not to see Brian on a weekly basis because we formed such a great customer/realtor relationship. If you're looking for someone who is going to LISTEN to you and GIVE you all that they have to offer and more, Brian is the realtor for you!

      - Brandon/Melissa Dehollander
    • HONEST. AMBITIOUS. GENUINE.Brian was amazing, I would not have got my home without him. Very prompt with responses, very knowledgable about the market, and genuinely cares that you get what you want. He cares about your long term, recommends the best for your home inspections, and closing options. Brian strives to see that you have things as he would want for himself and his family. Late phone calls, text messages, and even quite literally a last second, down to the wire, deal change, he responded with no issue. He is one of a kind, and I would recommend him to anyone.

      - Julie
    • It was a pleasure to work with Brian. A great listener. Tons of local knowledge. Very easy to talk with, and never pushy. I highly recommend him. He was able to efficiently and successfully work with the selling agent to make our purchase happen. He is a consummate professional.

      - Stacy Zuch
    • Brian was punctual, did his homework, provided key advice, and was very pleasant in the process. Made sure we saw a range of houses and neighborhoods to acquire a realistic feel for where we wanted to live in the Rockford area. Would highly recommend his services.

      - Mark Chamberlain
    • Brian made the entire buying AND selling process so smooth and easy. He was always available to answer questions or provide advice. Very knowledgeable and professional, he went above and beyond to help however we needed. I would highly, highly recommend him for any real estate dealings.

      - Melissa Milanowski
    • Brian is a great realtor! He's professional, courteous, organized, and works very hard for his clients. Our experience couldn't have been better. We've worked with Brian on two properties now (one we purchased and one we sold). He's always been willing to take my questions and help me in my decision making process.

      - Katie DeBoer
    • Respectful of our search pace. Prompt and available. Overall great to work with and we would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an agent. Brian would be first on our list for our next sale or purchase.

      - Ryan T
    • Brian is hands down the best person I could have worked with through the purchase of my first home. He understood my wants and needs. He was always enthusiastic, readily available, and flexible. I will be working with him for all of my future real estate needs.

      - Nancy M
    • We purchased our first house after looking around for a few months ourselves. Brian was available at a moments notice. He was the most knowledgable, and accommodating Real Estate Professional we have worked with.

      - Michael Pals
    • We recently sold our home with Brians help, as well as purchasing a new one. Brian went above and beyond in every aspect to make sure we were represented in the best way. He was quick with communication, always readily available to answer questions or to show us 5 more houses! He was kind, honest, and definitely put us first. He made us feel as though we were his only clients and made a stressful process go smoothly. I would highly recommend Brian for all of your real estate needs

      - Sarah Pizzo
    • Brian was extremely helpful in helping us find our new home. He was very responsive and made sure we had all of the information needed to make an informed decision. I would highly recommend Brian for making you feel comfort in buying your new home.
