    Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Mount Pleasant, MI.
    Bob was outstanding, from the initial contact to completed transaction. He is personable, responsive, knowledgeable, and proactive. Any issues (which were few) were resolved immediately to our satisfaction . It was a stress free process, handled and executed by a pro.

    Bob listed and sold home within one week. Great professional, very knowledgeable and very pleasant to work with. He also has a great team! If we should ever need a realtor in the area in the future we would definitely go to him.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Traverse City, MI.
    We decided to change realtors after a very disappointing experience with our first realtor. We decided to talk with other realtors in hopes of finding someone who would be more helpful ~ one who who be attentive to our needs, who would explain the “ins and outs” of selling our property, communicate with us, and, of course, sell the property. This was our first time selling a property (we are retired) and really needed an experienced realtor to walk us through this process as kindergarteners!
    After meeting with Bob, we had no doubts ~ he took time with us, educated us, listened to us. He was professional in every way, but he was also friendly ~ kind of comfortable and down to earth ~ we listed with him. Bob followed through with, absolutely, everything he said he would do AND he kept in communication with us all along the way. This property was not an easy sell. For instance, it had township ordinances which made it difficult, if not impossible to develop in a way ideal for its location. Bob worked at it and Bob sold it in a short time and just slightly below asking price. We were thrilled!
    We would recommend Bob Brick in a heartbeat!

    Bought a home in 2016 in Traverse City, MI.
    Bob was fair and professional and did a good job. There were multiple sellers that required a lot of patience and Bob did a great job managing them and closing the transaction.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $200K in Traverse City, MI.
    Bob was very knowledgeable about the local market. Him and his team were available and receptive to our needs. We used Bob for our first home purchase, and it was actually a very easy and low-stress process, which I'm sure not everyone can say.

    Bought a home in 2017.
    My husband and I had the pleasure of working with BJ Brick for the purchase of our first home in Traverse City. We really enjoyed his willingness to meet us anywhere, anytime through the long process it took us to find the one we really wanted. In between trying to find a home in Traverse City, we moved to Grand Rapids for 1 year. He was extremely patient and never questioned the length of time it would take us to find the one house we loved.

    Showed home in 2016 in Traverse City, MI.
    I was in Traverse City this Memorial Day weekend for a weekend getaway from Ohio. I have been interested in property in the area for a couple of years now. I asked around and everyone agreed that Bob Brick is the best of the best when it comes to real estate in Northern Michigan. I worked with both his son BJ and Bob on a few properties. I was very impressed with the way they went out of their way to meet with me on a holiday weekend with very little lead time. I felt very comfortable working with them and was very impressed with their knowledge regarding the area and homes. They were clearly interested in learning about me and what I was truly looking for in a home. I could tell they had my best interest in mind. There is something to be said about a realtor who is up to speed with the local market, knows the history of the homes, local building codes and regulations etc., and cares about his clients! This is an impressive team and I'd recommend them to anyone looking in the area.

    Sold a home in 2016 for approximately $725K.
    Despite the rave reviews around town for Bob Brick and his son B.J. my experience as a seller working with the both of them was nothing less than frustrating. I was sold on their use of digital marketing channels to sell my house, but Bob has absolutely no knowledge of digital marketing at all. In fact, our house was not even marketed on Zillow. BJ's digital marketing consisted of posting our house on his own Facebook feed. There was a lot of confusing back and forth between father and son and not good or consistent communication which led to even more mix-ups and botched opportunities. At one point, we lost an offer because the couple interested in our house was represented by Bob and steered toward another property they had listed. I never felt like either of them had our best-interest at heart - only their own. Finally, when it came to closing on our house, their office was so disorganized with closing documentation that it caused a lot of unnecessary back and forth and wasted time. They are NOT detail oriented, seem over-extended, and frankly, were a pain to work with. Don't get sold a bill of goods. Go with someone who is hungry and will represent YOU not their own best interests. Despite Bob's long-standing in the community, I would NEVER use them again or recommend them to anyone I know.
    Response from Bob on 3/14/2017
    I apologize for your frustrations. We listed your home on September 30, 2015. In 6 months we had 1180 website views on Zillow alone, generating 338 inquiries, 37 showings and 3 accepted offers, 3 different inspections and numerous concerns. There were many unique and some major issues with every offer and inspection that had to be navigated. As a result of numerous issues both buyer and seller made concessions for the sale of your home to move forward to closing. I apologize for our portion of the communication break down but I really believe it wasn't a one-sided issue. We overcame many obstacles and ultimately the home sold. You are now free to move forward in your life's journey. We wish you the best, Bob
