"Brian was able to sell my house much quicker than I would have anticipated anyone doing. He was extremely hard working, professional, and driven. He was also extremely patient with me for this being my first home I've tried to sell. Any questions I had, if he didn't have the answers, he found them and that made me comfortable in an otherwise uncomfortable situation. Anyone who has went through the ordeal of selling your house knows that it can be a trying and stressful time, so choosing your realtor is definitely the most important thing by a mile. I made the right choice. Brian went above and beyond for me and acted in an all around professional manner. His efforts on my open house where marvelous and his willingness to always be ready to meet anyone at the drop of a hat who wanted to see the place was amazing. Probably the most important quality he has as a realtor is the willingness to go to bat for you. He's not afraid to butt heads with someone trying to take advantage of you. That was really impressive to watch. In the end, Brian got me more than I ever thought I could get by utilizing all of his skill set to aide me in coming up with the best plan of action. His plan appeared to be pretty effective because here I am now. I sold my first home fast and for more than expected. I felt a sense of comfort and relaxation with him. I never felt that he would drop the ball or tell me something I knew was not true. He's honest and really did care about my well being and accepted only the best final outcome for me as a first time home seller. I highly recommend Brian Mitchell."

"I recently sold my home in Lake Forest and Brian Mitchell was my agent. I couldn't have asked for anyone better! He was professional, timely, and very helpful. He got the job done in less then 30 days and went above and beyond to make this the best experience possible. I highly recommend anyone in the Orange County area to contact Brian Mitchell for any of your real estate needs!!!"

"My husband and I found Brian by happenstance, we loved the neighborhood and community and wanted to buy our first home there but kept hitting a dead end because all we could get through was to the association (and they had no idea!). We found one of Brian's signs outside a condo and decided to give him a try. We were NOT disappointed at all! Brian went above and beyond to try and find a condo in the complex that we were happy with and set up a private tour for us to view a few of the condos in the area. We fell in love with one of the condos Brian was the listing agent for, we just felt right at home, and naturally felt inclined to ask him to represent us in purchasing the home. Things can definitely get tricky when representing both sides of a deal, but Brian handled it amazingly, we felt like he was very informative and helpful and on our side the whole time, and I'm sure the seller can say the same. The whole process went very smoothly and we were very fortunate to gain a friend even after the escrow closed and the whole process was over. I can truly recommend Brian Mitchell as an honest, hard working, and authentically genuine agent."

"I couldn't help but notice the success Brian was having when he listed other homes in our area. Brian was really outshining other realtors in terms of price and how fast his listings went into escrow. When it was time to sell I was convinced he would be the right realtor. I am so glad I made that decision! Brian was so much more than a realtor. He treats you like a friend or even family. He was always responsive, helpful, knowledgeable, professional, and went above and beyond to sell our place. He ended up getting us full asking price while other units listed around that time are still sitting, and others dropped their price by the thousands. I always tell anyone that asks we wouldn't have chosen anyone else!" CLOSED November 27th, 2013
Roger and Gloria Cazian "Brian really came through for us working above and beyond what was required of him. He went to the condo daily to make sure it was in order and ready for viewing. If you need a hard working real estate agent who gets results, he is your man. He was a real pleasure to work with." CLOSED June 27th, 2014
Ella Borbe "Brian Mitchell went over and beyond for me to sell my house as quickly as possible. He was able to not only get it into escrow in less then two weeks, but also got me a great price. He is professional, persistent, responsive, and took my concerns into his immediate consideration providing all of my options to me. He made a difficult situation manageable, and I would definitely use him again in the future." CLOSED July 22nd, 2014
"Brian was an amazing agent. I am a 24 year old art student, and I had never used an agent before. Brian responded within minutes to my email, and was incredibly helpful and informative. Our housing hunt was a tough one, but Brian preformed above and beyond and managed to get us into a home. He was always quick to respond to any questions I had. I could not have asked for a better agent; if you really want someone who cares and will do everything in his power to help you find a home, Brian is your guy!"

"Hello, I would like to share a few words regarding Brian Mitchell. Brian is exceptionally talented at his craft for many reasons. Brian is unbelievably precise and always (on-time) for his clients. He is extremely knowledgeable regarding all aspects of real estate sales from start to finish. His commitment to excellence and attention to detail is second to none! His network of resources proved to be outstanding, all of the support cast of people lenders, escrow, inspectors and photographers were top notch! Brian was excellent in explaining each step of the process of selling my home. He was particularly helpful in preparing my home to show for the open house dates. Brian also came early and helped me prepare for all private showings to ensure the property looked perfect for potential buyers. Brian also helped with cleaning, gardening and furniture removal. I look forward to having Brian as my realtor in the future. Respectfully Bobby Yowell"

"Brian has been our realtor twice now and he has just blown us away. When we sold our home just recently, Brian went above and beyond and sold our home for a great price while other homes were just sitting on the market or dropping their prices significantly. In fact, our home was the highest sold at the time. Brian is the hardest worker I know, he's knowledgeable on home improvement, and is 100% supportive and with you every step of the way. I can tell he really prides himself on his work and has great work ethic. My husband and I highly recommend going with Brian if you're planning on buying or selling a home, there is no better!"

"I met Brian when I decided to sell my condo. He was very helpful, very professional and walked me through every step of the closing process, keeping contact with me all the way and supporting me. When I have seen my listing I was blown away. His hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off - my listing looked amazing and knocked out the competition. The second buyer that saw the property put in an offer.I was very thankful for his service and I will recommend him with no doubt."

"I couldn't have chosen a better realtor to help me sell my condo. From day one he was there helping me prepare my condo to put on the market. He did so many things to help me that I couldn't have gotten done by myself and I don't think there is another realtor out there that would have done all the things he did for me. He did an excellent job on explaining all of the paper work I had to sign and was a complete professional. I have moved out of Orange County but if any of my friends out there needed a realtor he is the one I would refer them to."

"If you need a real estate agent, and especially if this is your first time in the market, Brian Mitchell is the agent you want on your side. He is the third realtor I've dealt with and the one I'll be calling again the next time I need to sell or buy. On the first day I met him, he provided me with more information in one hour than my other realtors did during the entire months-long process. I hired Brian to represent me in the sale of my condo, which I had rented to tenants (I was blessed with wonderful tenants - just had to throw this in here). I did not want to disrupt my tenants' lives any more than necessary, and Brian worked with them and their schedules and made it happen. Other reviews I've read have all said that Brian goes above and beyond - this is very accurate. For example, unbeknownst to me, my tenants' vacuum cleaner broke on the day the appraisal was scheduled. They told Brian, and he brought his personal vacuum cleaner over and even helped them to clean the condo an hour before the appraiser was set to arrive. Who does that?? My other realtors certainly didn't. Brian was there for the inspection, for the appraisal, for the walk-through, etc. When my husband sold his condo, his realtor didn't attend anything except the open house he scheduled. I know a lot of things throughout the process are not in the realtors' control - market prices, appraisals, and whatnot. Brian gives you the information you need to make decisions, he does what he can to put everything possible in your favor (ethically and realistically), and he works hard to get the results you're hoping for. The sale of my condo went a lot quicker and a lot smoother than I anticipated, and Brian is the reason for most of that. I can definitely recommend him without reservation."

Brian Mitchell helped us with the sell of our first home. He went above and beyond for us. He was very thorough and always on top of things. He was very informative every step of the way and helped us understand the entire process of selling our home. Brian is the type of realtor that puts his clients first and has their best interest in mind. He was able to get our condo the highest sold in our complex! It was so great to have a realtor that was available at all times and very hands on the entire process. Brian was an absolute pleasure to work with and we are so glad we chose him as our realtor. It was a great experience and we would highly recommend him to anyone in search of a realtor!

Hello, I don't usually write reviews online. But I really had to share my experience with the Brian my real estate agent. He has been very helpful from the start. I purchased my first condo with him two years ago. He was very patient and knowledgeable, he made the process so easy and convenient that I had to call him for his help to rent out my condo. Once again he provided me with the best service. Made the process very convenient. Thank you Brian for all your help and going out of your way to make things easier for me. If you want a stress-free experience buying a home, Brian is the guy to go to.
