We used Brett Aka as our realtor in the recent buying and selling of our home. He made the process as easy and pleasant as possible and was there to guide us every step of the way. Brett was patient, knowledgeable, detail-oriented, professional, responsive and hard-working. He and his team worked efficiently and communicated effectively. Everyone was super helpful and supportive. Not only is Brett an amazing realtor, but he's a great person who truly had my family's best interest at heart. I highly recommend Brett Aka to anyone searching for a new home. We are forever grateful to Brett, Team Aka and Better Homes and Gardens for helping us attain the home of our dreams!

We were on a tight budget and timeline for getting our home ready to sell. Brett and his team came by our house and gave us a priority list of things to get done, and helped us select paint colors and materials they thought would be most marketable. They were great at getting contractors in to complete work that we could not do in a very timely manner, and they were always polite, helpful, and responsive, even when we called or texted from Home Depot at insane hours of the day or night. They came by the house multiple times to check on our progress, make suggestions, and offered to send help if needed. Brett really studied the market and gave us a really good idea of a possible fare market value for our home. He kept us up-to-date and informed on what was happening and how things were going. Brett implemented a great sales strategy for our home, and we ended up selling for over our original asking price. I really can't say enough about how fantastic everyone on the team was. We are incredibly happy with the work Brett and his team did for us.

I've worked with Brett previously on the board of a non-profit organization, so I was already very familiar with the Brett's professionalism and attention to detail. With this being the first single family home purchase for my wife and me, what stood out most was Brett's EQ. Home buying, especially in this market, is an emotional roller coaster and Brett tactfully managed our expectations and coached us through the highs and lows. We are so grateful to Brett for helping us to find our beautiful home!
