"This review is for BRET EVANS. I don't usually write reviews on Yelp. However, I was so impressed with Bret that I feel like I owed him a great review and wanted others to benefit from knowing that there are great agents out there. I must say, Bret sets the bar for realtors. I've never worked with a realtor that is as knowledgeable, speedy and dedicated to making their client happy.
Knowledgeable: Bret has sold many units in the Peninsula Landing community in Redwood Shores with the ability to close quickly. His track record made me pick him out of a pool of agents who wanted my listing. He is the go-to guy if you want to buy/sell property quickly. I also wanted to remodel and stage my place before listing my property - he had many contacts to refer me to.
Fast: I think I listed and sold the property in less than a month.
Dedicated: I had overgrown ivy in my porch and Bret literally brought over his weed whacker and trimmed the ivy himself and the place looked much better. Who does that? Realtors who go above and beyond do that - that's Bret Evans.
All in all, Bret goes above and beyond the call of duty. He ensures that things are done properly and efficiently. I will definitely be calling him for the next time I move and will be referring him to my friends. "
-Mr. E. Son, Redwood Shores
"Bret recently sold my CA condo and managed the upgrading prior to its sale. Since I now live on the east coast, I had real concerns about dealing long distance with a realtor. Because of the full attention and effort he gave to this process I had no worries. Bret completely managed the upgrade process, selected all elements and materials required, bought appliances, and brought a dated condo into the 21st century. I was able to see it on its completion and the outcome was excellent. His use of both his time and marketing skills yielded large numbers of people visiting both the condo and website. I could not have been more pleased with a realtor and I highly recommend him to you. "
- Mr. T. Banks, Redwood Shores
"We first met Bret Evans having relocated from Switzerland and in 2011 and were looking for an agent who was familiar with the market in Redwood Shores specifically. He quickly assisted us in finding our condo and we closed in record time.
Five years later when it was time to relocate, we didn't hesitate to call Bret again to assist in our sale. His professionalism and easy manner made what can sometimes be a stressful process much easier and again the sale was swift and painless.
Having been on both sides of the closing table with Bret, we can highly recommend him from either perspective. If you are in need of a realtor in the Peninsula area and are seeking someone with years of experience who is diligent and thoughtful, you need look no further than Bret Evans. Thanks for everything, Bret!"
-Mr. and Mrs. Haddix, Redwood Shores
"We recently worked with Bret Evans to sell our condo in Redwood Shores. We had a pocket listing that was contingent on the successful offer on a different property. As a result, the sale was extremely time sensitive. Despite these obstacles, Bret was able an offer that was over the ask price within two weeks of listing. While that buyer later backed out due to a delay on our end, Bret was again able to generate a multiple offer situation on the condo within 24 hours by reaching out through his network so that we would not lose our offer on the other property. Without Bret's work, we would not now be living in our new house.
It was a pleasure to work with Bret, and my wife and I would recommend him without any reservation. We could not have asked for a better broker to have helped us through the sales process."
- Mr. and Mrs. Sun, Redwood Shores
"My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Bret Evans as both buyers and sellers. We can unequivocally recommend him in both capacities.
In 2013 we were looking to relocate on the Peninsula and Bret showed us several houses in San Carlos and Belmont. He went through disclosures and analyzed comps for us, and his recommendations for what to offer so closely matched the final sale prices of the houses we looked at, it was spooky. With Bret's help, we decided NOT to buy at that time, but instead to invest in updating our house in Redwood City. Bret offered no pressure to buy, no guilt for his time spent, just knowledgeable advice about the market.
Fast-forward to two years later when we decided to move out of state...our house had appreciated almost fifty percent! Who did we call to sell it? The guy who gave us the good advice to wait. As a seller's agent, Bret went above and beyond to make the transaction as smooth and painless as possible for us. His strategies for marketing and listing got us our dream price and we were list-to-close within two weeks. At every phase we felt the benefit of his expertise and integrity. We could not have had a better experience."
-Mrs. and Mr. Avery, Redwood City
"I am an engineer working in sf and just bought my first house in Foster City with Bret and his assistant Lulu's help. I am writing this review two weeks after the deal was closed so that my excitement will not overwhelm my rational mind.
I started looking at open houses with my fiancee from the beginning of June. Bret showed up almost every weekend in the following 3 months and tirelessly introduced every house to us. He helped us to read through the disclosure (they are not short at all) of every house we are interested in and very carefully reminded us the problem which may cost us a high price to fix. At the end, he helped us to get our home in a very competitive neighborhood by a pre-offer with a right price to avoid multiple-offer situation.
As a buyer agent, not like some others who want to finish their job on the buyer side as fast as they can, he never pushed us to offer. In contrast, he always honestly pointed out potential problems when we were thinking about an offer.
Someone has said, the most important job of an agent for a first-time buyer is not to win a bid among 20 offers, but to educate the buyer to get an idea of what type of property he/she wants to live in. Bret, in this perspective, is an excellent teacher. He grew up and lives locally on peninsula for so many years. From Millbrae to San Carlos, he can tell stories for every city. We just moved to bay area for half a year, but with his help, we aimed our target at Foster City and Redwood shore very quickly within the first month.
We are native Chinese speakers, Bret sometimes could not catch our points very well. But his Chinese assistant Lulu did excellent translation between us. My parents visited us from China in the summer and went to most of open houses with us. When Bret were talking with us in English, Lulu translated to my parents and took are of them very well.
Overall, if you are looking for an honest and efficient agent, you SHOULD visit Bret. If you speak Mandarine but are still looking for a native agent, you MUST find Bret and Lulu."
-Mr. Q. Yang, Foster City
"I am now happily settled in my new home in Placerville, CA thanks to Brett. He was great! He was there every step of the way, and because of his efforts, I got a great price for my condo. He really knows what he is doing, knows Redwood Shores and the real estate market. Bret even helped me move boxes! I would highly recommend him and would certainly use him again."
-Mrs. P. Sassenberg, Redwood Shores
"Bret just helped sell my mothers home. He was there every step of the way. We had many questions through the process and he was available day and night, that was a big plus for us. He is very knowledgeable and professional and follows up on his promises. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell."
-Mrs. L. Frey, Redwood City
"Anyone who wishes to sell their home, or buy one, should see Bret Evans with ReMax. He sold my 1-bedroom condo in 5-days. He priced it well. We received 4 offers and the one I accepted was $33K over asking! Bret was fantastic every step of the way, going way above the call of duty even moving some furniture to storage for me. He knows how the market works and represents his clients very well. Give him a call - you won't be disappointed!"
-Mrs. N. Wright, Redwood City
"This review is for Bret Evans. He was a pleasure to work with! He came up with the perfect list price and was able to help me sell my condo in just 8 days. The transaction was smooth from start to finish, and he provided a number of supplemental services including professional staging and photography. Bret is an excellent communicator and was always available for my questions and/or requests. I highly recommend him!"
-Ms. K. Zeigler, Redwood Shores
"We first met Bret about 8 years ago while looking for a new home on the peninsula. He showed us a number of homes and helped us to determine where and what we could afford. He handled each and every step perfectly.
Almost eight years later when we needed an agent to help sell that home, we turned to Bret. He is astute at knowing the current conditions and setting a realistic price. His marketing and sales skills sold our home within a week.
We especially appreciate his integrity. Whatever he says he does. Promptly returns, calls, emails and text messages."
-Mr. and Mrs. Courier, San Mateo
"Bret Evans is a professional in every way. I would highly recommend him. He staged and advertised my home as promised. The open house was done the very first weekend. The home sold in ten days. He is sincere and cares about his clients. Bravo to Brett."
-Mrs. C. Guptail, Foster City
"My wife and I worked directly with Bret Evans when we bought our house in San Carlos.

We recommend Bret to our friends who are looking for a real estate agent."
-Mrs. and Mr. Pereira, San Carlos

"Bret Evans has been instrumental in providing guidance for the sale of our house.

-Mrs. D. Gervasi, Redwood City

"Bret was a consummate professional from start to finish of my first home purchase. He was patient with all my questions and concerns and has an expert understanding of this bay area housing market. He reviewed all the disclosures and HOA documents with me (no small task) and always looked out for my interests, even after purchasing the property. I was a pleasure to work with Bret and highly recommend him for your real estate needs."
-Mr. M. Gularanji, Union City

I would definitely use him again."
