Brian did a great job for us. He listened to our needs and did not try to up-sale. He knew the market and knew the right people to contact. He tried to make the process as painless as possible. We will use Brian again. -Gregor Munich
We began our search from out of state and Brian was exactly what we needed. He is a transplant to the region and has done extensive research about the area and what each neighborhood has to offer. He easily understood what we were looking for, and when we finally made an offer (sight unseen) it was because we trusted what he saw in addition to his knowledge and support. I would highly recommend working with Brian. -Anonymous
I interviewed several real estate agents for the sale of my home in Bend and Brian was the one I picked. He was absolutely the right choice. Brian and Cascade Sotheby’s know what it takes to market a home at the national level. Brian also knew the market cold and made exactly the right call on pricing. I could not have asked for a better experience. I cannot recommend Brian more highly. If you want to sell a house in Bend he is your man. Thanks Brian it was a pleasure doing business with you! …
We had an amazing experience with the Ladd Group. They were incredibly knowledgable of the local market and presented excellent data to help formulate the price point on our home. With them we were able to sell our home in 12 days, at an above asking price with multiple offers. Steve LaCrosse worked most directly with us and also helped us find our current home in addition to selling our home. He was accessible, hardworking and always had our vision and needs in mind. We highly highly recommend!…
Brian and his team at the Ladd Group sold our home in Bend while we were in California. They took care of everything and we had a few hurdles pop up with the prepping of the house for sale, which they took in stride and worked around. Brian is very responsive and everyone on the team seems to do a super job. We would highly recommend the Ladd Group. On top of all that, after our property closed, we received a very nice gift from Brian in the mail – and we’ve NEVER received a “thanks for doing b…
We first became acquainted with Brian 12 years ago while building our home in Arvada, Colorado by Bruttany Builders. Brian was always willing to make sure all of our concerns were addressed and remedied. We began looking for a second home in Steamboat Springs, Colorado 3 years ago. We were pleasantly surprised that Brian was a Real Estate Agent in the area and to be honest that is why we pursued the search at that time. Brian made himself available on the week-ends that we would be traveling…
From our initial appointment, through the marketing & sales strategy discussions, to our eventual close, Brian and his entire team at Ladd Group where professional, thoughtful, and above all else, available to help us through a very challenging sales cycle. It’s important to understand that our home was in a middle-tier market price range that made Brian’s job of finding us a qualified buyer very difficult. Brian helped us stay calm and reasonable in our thinking and actions as we struggled t…
We listed our house with the Ladd Group and they sold it in a day. Everybody on the team (Brian, Kim, and Denise) gave excellent support throughout the process. These people know what they’re doing.
They are a class act for sure. We had bumps in the road during the buying process but Denise stood next to us every step of the way, I can not say enough about how great and how helpful she is!!”
Bryan Hilts was profoundly attentive and effective at getting us our second home that we desired for a real estate investment. We are so pleased with the home, location and of course price in such a ridiculously competitive market. Unlike many real estate agents, Bryan really listened to our needs and didn’t waste our time showing us houses that did not meet our requirements or were not in our price range. I am grateful for his expertise in making the whole experience a lot more easier
