Andrew McGough

Brian has helped me purchase my primary residence as well as 3 other rental properties. If it wasn’t for Brian, I would have never been able to get started into investing in real estate or scale the size of my rental portfolio by 1-2 homes a year. 

He has always been dependable and goes above and beyond help get my offers accepted and transactions closed. His recommendations and contacts are always top notch, and make even the most difficult and complex transactions go smoothly.

Brian was super helpful to us on the phone and took time to carefully answer our questions. He spent a long time on the phone answering detailed questions about purchasing options and providing many details about the overall process,…

specific to the areas we were looking at. Although we only had that one converstaion, based on that we recommend him for initial advice.

We’ve worked with Brian both on buying our home, as well as selling. He is a true gem of a human being on top of being an incredible real estate agent. He is so well versed in the market, will always be in your corner, and is the kindest person…

who is a pleasure to be around during the process of buying or selling in LA. He was so responsive and helpful every time we had any concerns or questions. We cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you for everything Brian!!

Brian helped my spouse and I look for a home in East LA for 6 months on a very limited budget. He was thorough with his searches and incredibly mindful of our priorities and personal taste. As first-time buyers, we had many questions and concerns…

 Brian was incredibly patient and thoughtful with his answers, ensuring that we felt completely comfortable with moving forward at every stage. His knowledge of the neighborhoods he covers as an agent is exhaustive. It’s evident that he truly loves the neighborhoods of East LA and knows exactly the sort of charm the region has to offer. He also has a long list of contacts and specialists related to buying a home (inspectors, contractors, fellow agents, etc.) that he’s more than happy to share with clients. The house-hunting process can be very overwhelming, but Brian is committed to providing peace of mind all along the way.

We found Brian by chance, and boy are we glad we did. He guided us through the purchase of our first home in City Terrace and was just wonderful along the way. From sending us listings within our price point to giving us neighborhood tours so we would know what parts of town were a good fit for us, he was the right balance of everything….

Need a referral? He has trusted lenders, plumbers, and termite companies, many of which he has used on his own home. Want to choose your own vendors? He will never pressure you to do anything you aren’t 100% comfortable with. He will gladly come with you to open houses and share his thoughts on strengths and weaknesses, or you can explore on your own if you would prefer. He lives in the area and is very active in the community, so if a vacant lot is about to be developed into a large apartment complex or dedicated to the city as a park, he knows it. We looked all over East LA and NELA and found a home that was just right for us, thanks to Brian’s patience and perseverance. I could not recommend him more highly!

Brian guided our family through our first home-buying experience and we could not have done it with anyone else. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and we absolutely trusted him from the moment we met him…

He was able to get us a great deal and help us navigate every twist and turn throughout the entire process. We love our home and would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of a realtor.

I’ve worked with a total of 4 agents, and upon requesting to view some properties, on the very same day, Brian scheduled 3 appointments. Brian is very prompt at scheduling and making the best out of our carved time to do property touring, trying to schedule at least 3 properties per meet up and would always offer to drive.

Many times, multiple offers got accepted! In addition, Brian shared his contacts for inspections and handy repair labor. I will absolutely recommend Brian as your agent!!!!

Brian came in at a time critical moment in my house hunt. Within an hour, he got me a viewing at a property and two days later it was ours. He’s a great communicator and was always relaxed and knowledgeable even when we weren’t. Can’t recommend Brian enough. Thanks for landing us the house of our dreams!

zbourque

As a first time home buyer, I spoke to several agents to ensure that I made a wise decision. After meeting with Brian, I was extremely impressed with his knowledge of local real estate and his professionalism. Brian was able to give me valuable information on several neighborhoods (El Sereno, City Terrace, Pasadena, etc.)…

and home types and ultimately found me a place within about a month of our first conversation (despite my particularity on parameters). I did not feel pressured and he was able to work with me on a fairly limited budget. Through his knowledge of the market and offering process, he helped me secure a home for less than asking in a great neighborhood. Throughout the process of scouring through listings as well as closing, Brian was consistently responsive and insightful and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Very good agents. Brian’s knowledge and experience was a huge contributing factor in us having our offer accepted. We were able to beat out 12 other offers on a fantastic house and are now first time home owners.

I met Brian by accident while looking for a home. I was working with an agent who wasn’t very helpful. I explained my situation to Brian and he and Felyce got the ball rolling. They are both extremely easy to work with, they listened to what I wanted and worked within my budget.

Buying my first home was a stressful and emotional process, I am thankful I had them on my side. They are a wealth of expertise and knowledge, and my wife and I are extremely grateful!

Brian and Felyce helped me find my first house. They explained the process to me every step of the way and helped me figure out my priorities. They never pressured me into making an offer on a house that was too expensive or that I didn’t love.

In fact, they encouraged me not to make an offer on at least one home I liked, but didn’t love. Eventually, Brian and Felyce helped me find the perfect home. They also helped me find a handyman once I settled in.

Brian and Felyce were great – they responded to requests through text immediately, any time of day or night. They made the process easy, from looking at property, putting in offers, inspections and negotiations…
We never felt any pressure to rush into decisions, and they provided good service even after the sale was closed, answering our questions and getting us connected with other professional services.

Brian and Felyce helped my partner and I purchase our first home in Pasadena. Being first time home buyers, the speed at which these transactions take place was very intimidating, but Brian & Felyce communicated the process very clearly,…

walked us through every step, and even helped us find a backup lender when our primary lender didn’t come through. I’m not sure we would have gotten the house without them, and I would highly recommend this team.

I met Brian a good 20 years ago and knew I could trust him to help me find my first home. I bought a condo in the SFV, then a few years later a couple more properties in downtown LA. Felyce and Brian sold all of them when I was transferred to SD. Brian and Felyce have meticulous eyes and pointed out both the good and the bad. I highly recommend them.

This is an incredibly overdue review. Brian E. Larsen is fabulous. He helped me get my dream house 🙂 Brian is very professional and hard working. I was a terrified first-time home-buyer, but with Brian helping me every step of the way my fears disappeared. I cannot recommend him highly enough. 
 

Anyone who is looking to purchase a home shouldn’t waste their time calling other realtors; call BRIAN! walked us through every step, and even helped us find a backup lender when our primary lender didn’t come through. I’m not sure we would have gotten the house without them, and I would highly recommend this team.

Brian took excellent care of us as we bought our first home. We bid on multiple homes with him and his advice was always sound. With competing bids on one home, he was vigilant in his contact with the seller agent and kept us in the game round after round.
Heartbroken when we finally got outbid, we motivated us to get right back out there and see a slew of homes the following week. He encouraged us towards seeing one that we had blown off as an option, that he knew fit all our asks, and it ended up being the one we fell for. He was a great advisor and hand-holder through a shortened escrow.

Brian did an excellent job showing us homes that were a good fit for our requirements. His availability and effort is especially impressive! Brian was available to show homes, respond to inquiries, set up inspections, coordinate with other parties,…

and follow up on our offers at all hours and stayed dedicated through escrow and property transfer. This was our first home buying experience and Brian helped make it positive and successful.

My husband and I met Brian during an open house and I found him to be a very honest and down to earth guy. We let him know that we had recently moved in the neighborhood and had decided to stop in. We had a lovely conversation and found out that Brian was our neighbor. A few weeks later, when my brother decided to look for a house, I recommended him. My brother was very pleased with Brian’s professionalism!
Then one day my husband and I were driving down the street and we saw Brian pulling weeds and picking up trash from the sidewalk. I later asked him what he was doing and he said he is active in the LA32 Beautification Committee. He is also our Neighborhood Watch Captain and Nextdoor.com Lead for El Sereno Hills. Brian recently graduated from The Los Angeles Police Department’s 9 week Community Police Academy geared on improving communications between the LAPD and El Sereno residents. Brian is a very knowledgeable realtor and I can say many great things about him that you may have already heard said about other realtors. But what makes Brian stand out as a realtor isn’t just his knowledge of the market, his professionalism, his negotiating skills, nor the time and patience he dedicates to his clients but instead it’s that he is willing, if you will, to get down and dirty in his neighborhood and do whatever it takes to make it the BEST neighborhood possible! So if you are looking for a realtor that’s involved in the community and will help you find your dream home you need look no further!

This is the third time Brian Helped me in buying, selling. I went to China on business and wanted to sell my condo quickly. Brian took care of everything. Cleaned the garage, cleaned the house before showing. Daily emails and phone calls to me. Brian even called the consulate general in Cheng Du to arrange for me to come in to notarized paper work. He is fair and got the price I wanted.

When selecting a real estate agent for our recent home sale and purchase, we decided to work with Brian Larsen. He lived in our immediate neighborhood which made it convenient for us, and he was knowledgeable about the area, current comps, general market, etc.
During the selling process, he was helpful in providing guidance to “stage” our home – from yard improvements and appropriate furniture placement to outdoor clean up (which he personally did before each open house we held with him). Our buying and selling process started out smooth and easy but became a very complicated process due to several unforeseen circumstances. Brian was calm and helped all parties (sellers, buyers, and their respective agents) get through.

This was my first home purchase and Brian was very patient, took the time to listen and shared his expertise in assisting me to make a great decision. He also went above and beyond in the negotiations when my mortgage provider ran into some personnel issues that caused a delay in resolution. He also stayed in touch after the move to make sure everything was going as expected. he is an awesome agent!

Trustworthy, knowledgeable, informative, responsive, friendly, helpful, and smart are all adjectives of Brian Larsen in the extreme. I randomly called up Brian one day while I was out searching for homes on my own. I am from Detroit and have never purchased a home. I didn’t know the areas at all or what I should be looking for. Brian helped me with absolutely everything from forms, paperwork, inspections, and home visits.
