What people are saying about working with Brien
Brien is the best real estate agent in Austin.. seriously though. We interviewed 7 real estate agents looking for the right fit and Brien was everything and more. He's knowledgeable, personable, listens, works extremely hard, is a total family guy and will be honest with you throughout the entire process. Additionally, Brien is extremely trustworthy, to the tune of trusting him with our home buying process while out of state. Brien also has his own business, Silver Homes, where he flips houses making him extremely helpful understanding the quality and build of the houses you view, how you can change or enhance a home to your liking, and he will help connect you with the best contractors in Austin. I honestly couldn't say enough nice things about Brien. Awesome person, perfect real estate agent and someone who is going to help professionally fight to get you the home of your dreams. I hope you get a chance to work with Brien!
Brien Silver was an ABSOLUTE pleasure to work with. As a first-time home buyer in one of the hottest markets in the US, it was an intimidating process to say the least, but Brien is an expert and explained every single step to me thoroughly. I felt like I was in the best hands making the biggest and most important purchase of my life. There is an unbeatable value working with a realtor who has experience remodeling houses in Austin - I truly trusted every step and bit of advice Brien gave me. The communication was excellent and he is so well connected in this city. His team is amazing and they referred me to the most reliable and responsive lender. We had a quick close and an off-market deal in this crazy market. I would one million percent work with Brien again and have already told my colleagues, friends, and family how great he is!
Brien is absolutely incredible as a real estate agent first and foremost but also a home purchasing counselor and renovation advisor. He's very knowledgeable, responsive, creative and thoughtful. Really the full package. And he's a cool dude. He knows the Austin real estate market extremely well and is connected in with the other agents in the city. He spends the time to understand your needs and doesn't waste a minute when opportunities arise that fit your profile. Crucial in a hot market like Austin. He also renovates beautiful homes, so he has a pipeline of opportunities and an eye to help you see the potential. We've bought and sold a number of homes and Brien is by far the best agent we've ever worked with!
Brien recently represented us in the sale of our home in south Austin. He went above and beyond every step of the way. We used funds via compass concierge to do a substantial make ready prior to listing in order to bring the home to its full potential. Brien help us decide where to spend the money and where to stop in order to fully maximize the return on our investment. This can be a tricky area to navigate and it felt great going in with confidence knowing we had run every scenario and that we were moving forward with a very calculated plan. He guided us every step of the way making suggestions, selecting tile, revising plans, keeping the project on track, coordinating staging among many other things all while handling the entire marketing and listing strategy. One morning I called super early to check in with him and he was already at the property watering the grass! Brien goes over and above for his clients. In addition to all of that we ended up with somewhere around 60 showings in 36 hours. Due to all the preparations and his distinguishing marketing strategies we received multiple aggressive offers and ended up accepting an offer that was $90,000 over our listing price! We were under contract within 48 hours of listing. If you are thinking about listing your property, look no further. Brien Silver is with his weight in gold.
Brien is outrageously passionate, incredibly strategic & very well connected within the Austin market! That trifecta of qualities allowed us to: buy a home, in our dream neighborhood, off-market, during an intense seller's market, all within 2 weeks of our initial meeting!!! As an added bonus, his extensive remodel experience made him the perfect advisor to consult with on our fixer-upper ambitions. When it came to selling our existing home, he gave us candid feedback on exactly how we should stage it, as well as price it, to command top dollar in-market within 48 hours of listing! We are so happy we've had the pleasure to work with him and can't imagine a better outcome!
The most special part about working with Brien for our family was his patience, kindness, and caring. The very first thing we did was get to know each other. After listening to our background, our hopes, our fears, and our goals for moving to Austin, Brien was able to leverage his extensive knowledge of the Austin market to find us a house we really love, in a great neighborhood, in what is truly the best part of Austin for our family. I have no hesitation in recommending Brien, and will happily work with him again in the future.
What I appreciate most about Brien is his honesty and integrity! He listened to our needs and then guided us through the sale of our home in order to accomplish our goals! We will use Brien's services again and I will recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Austin area!
Brien helped me get my house ready for sale, marketed and sold (above listing) within a few weeks start to finish. He's extremely knowledgable about the Austin market, diligent, responsive, communicative and an effective seller. I'd absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to maximize the value of their property.
Anyone looking for a new home would be hard pressed to find someone like Brien. He is quick to find out what are your musts, and must nots when it comes finding a new home. He fights for his clients best interests and is very supportive for new home buyers. His main job is to make sure you are happy and he is very good at his job.
As an investor in multiple states for many years now I wanted to get into the Austin market. I was introduced to Brien through one of our mutual friends in our Austin real estate network. From the very first time we met, I knew he was going to be my real estate consultant. He’s tenacious, hard working and has a very solid understanding of the Austin market.
Brien helped us find our new home that we're in love with! As a first time home buyer we relied heavily on Brien to help guide us through the process. Brien is super knowledgeable about the Austin real estate market and skilled in negotiating. He's honest and straight forward and genuinely invested in the process from start to finish. Would highly recommend using Brien for your next home sale or purchase!
My wife and I bought our first home with the help of Brien Silver and we are happy to call Austin Texas our new home. Seeing that we were buying while not even living in the country at the time, we needed someone we could trust, who was proactive with communication, transparent, and who really understood what we were looking for, what would be best for us. During the entire process we felt Brien had our best interests at heart.
We had the absolute best experience with Brien as our agent while purchasing our first home. I can't recommend him enough. He is extremely organized, knowledgeable, professional, responsive, and always on top of everything. He helped us narrow down our preferred neighborhoods, was available to do home tours at our convenience and fully guided us along the way from the beginning to our closing day. He has an incredible team that he works with and recommends to his clients including reputable lending agents, inspectors, and other home repair servers - all whom we used and were very pleased with. Our situation is a bit unique where we were trying to purchase a home that was ""coming soon"" but had not hit the market yet. Brien made it top priority to reach out to the listing agent on our behalf, expressed our strong interest in the home to the agent, and helped us put in our strongest offer. We were so pleased when the sellers accepted our offer and we could have never done it without Brien's guidance. Home buying can be very stressful (Especially your first home!) and I can't express enough how thankful we are to have had Brien as our agent to help us during this experience. He made the process so much more manageable for us because we knew he always has his client's best interest at mind. I wouldn't use anyone else for the next time we are buying or selling a home!
When I was looking to purchase my first home back in 2017, I was fortunate enough to have close friends in the industry recommend Brien as my real estate advisor. He successfully helped me to find and negotiate a perfect first home, and I knew when it was time for my husband and I to find our first home together as a married couple that we would work with him again. Buying and selling a home can be stressful and emotional, and you want an advisor who will support you through each step of the process with confidence, professionalism, and expertise. Brien has all of these qualities and more. He helped us to get our home market-ready and pushed to get us top dollar in our area, which was a considerable return on investment from just 2.5 years ago. He used state of the art photography and marketing, and we obtained multiple over-asking offers within days!
I cannot recommend Brien enough, and while we hope to stay in our new home for many years to come, if we ever decide to go through this process again there is no one else we would consider as our real estate advisor!
We highly recommend Brien! We just moved into our house in South Austin. We love the house and we love the neighborhood. Brien zeroed in on this house as soon as it was listed and worked quickly with the seller to get us into escrow and then close. My wife and I were house hunting from another state. From our first phone call, Brien was very personable and responsive. If he told us he'd follow up on something - he always got it done. We would not hesitate to use Brien again.
Brien was great. Very professional. Incredibly responsive, never had to wait for more than a few minutes for an answer to any of our questions. He was able to sell our home quickly and for very close to the listing price, as well as helping to handle all our needs once we have already moved out of state. Great attention to detail which showed during several open houses he held for us. Throughout the process, I really felt like Brien had our best interests in mind. If I was to sell or buy a home in the area, I would definitely be working with Brien.
Brien was incredible to work with. We had only been to Austin one time before we began our home search from Nashville, so we really needed someone trustworthy who could give us honest opinions about the areas and homes we were interested in. He was available at any time we needed to look at houses (via Facetime) and gave us honest advice about updates we could make or things that didn't look so great in each one. If we found a house online we liked, he would drive over that day so that we could check it out. He put together an amazing offer for our house and worked at lightning speed every step of the whole process. It was a very smooth experience to purchase our home because Brien went above and beyond to take care of every detail. We love our new house and can't believe we get to call it home!
Top-notch service and professionalism! After our initial conversation with Brien where we discussed our desired neighborhoods and style of home, he got straight to work. Almost immediately we had a customized list of properties that exactly fit what we were looking for. This saved us a lot of time, and made us feel like we were really getting white-glove service! As we began to tour homes Brien’s knowledge of home remodeling and extensive experience in the Austin real estate market was invaluable. He knew so much about the areas we were looking in and the quality of work that was done on the homes we toured. Once we decided on a home Brien worked tirelessly to negotiate on our behalf. He insured that our best interests were always the primary focus and that all bases were covered. After all of Brien's hard work, we closed on a wonderful house and couldn't be happier. Through the entire process, Brien conducted himself with the utmost professionalism and continually made us feel that our business was a top priority. I could not be happier with our experience and highly recommend Brien!
Brien was professional, and most importantly, got right to work afterour first interview! Brien set us up on the MLS portal, and just from chatting with us on the neighborhoods and criteria we've given him, our MLS search results was curated and showing us exactly the type of properties we would be interested in touring. That saved us a lot of time from having to sort and sift through all of the filters, which we could have done ourselves going on any other public home search website. Brien was accommodating and efficient in setting up our first day of house touring and a few after. He was always 2 steps ahead in almost every aspect of our home search experience which truly felt like white glove service. Once we found our home, Brien expertly negotiated on our behalf and with our best interest in a professional manner. With that said, we closed on our beautiful home yesterday and couldn't be happier having Brien as our agent. Even after closing, we will stay in contact with Brien ( Since he offered haha). What I'm trying to say here is. We highly recommend Brien Silver!
Brien Silver is the consummate professional and we can't speak highly enough of our experience with him. As first-time home buyers, Brien provided us with a unique combination of professionalism, knowledge, and enthusiasm that was tremendously authentic. He is honest and hands-on (He often walked us through the level of effort, costs, and timelines associated with potential updates and remodels in our beloved South Austin), and he helped us in finding the absolute perfect home for our family. We never felt forced to make an offer and when we finally found the ""one"" and ended up in a multiple over-asking offer scenario, Brien put together the absolute best offer we could have imagined and walked us through every step of the negotiations, even suggesting that we write a letter to the sellers to explain why we thought they should choose us. Had it not been for Brien's strong negotiation skills and keen insight into the market, we probably wouldn't have ended up in our amazing new home. It was a unique approach that worked very well, and we thank Brien pretty much every day! We have several friends looking for homes and thinking about selling, and we always recommend Brien to them! Brien is not just our realtor; he is our friend.
Brien’s core values of Integrity, Knowledge and Excellence show his dedication to his clients. He helps people find their dream homes & build wealth through real estate. Brien looks forward to the opportunity to earn your trust as a lifelong resource.
