“Mr. Brown is an excellent real estate agent who puts the buyer’s needs first. I bought a listing that he had in the state of Tennessee while I was still residing in California. Mr. Brown was very patient and thorough in explaining everything about the listing and helping me to get the right paperwork to ensure that everything was right. He proved to be an exceptional agent who took his personal time to make everything perfect for my move to a new location. Additionally, he assisted me in having everything that I needed done (electric, water, phone, etc.), so that when I arrived in the middle of the night my new house was ready. I highly recommend Mr. Brown and have recommended him to my family and friends for any of their real estate needs; and in the future if I have any more real estate dealings,  it will only be done by him.” –  AJ Giles

“B.J. Brown did a great job in helping us prepare the house to sell. He put us in contact with professionals to make the needed repairs and was always available. I live in a different city so it was great having B.J. to oversee the preparation of the house. Once it was listed, he really helped sell the house and it wasn’t on the market too long before it sold.” –  James Elliott

“We have had the pleasure of knowing B.J. Brown since 1997 when he helped us find property in TN. He has good instincts and only showed us property in which we had an interest. He walked the properties with us and we were impressed with his eagerness and willingness to find the perfect property for us. B.J. recently sold that same property for us and remains as dedicated and sincere as he has always been. He has gone over and beyond our expectations, is a remarkable realtor, and a wonderful, caring person.”  – Susan and Ray Romo
