My Client Reviews
You won't find a more professional, dedicated, and trustworthy realtor than Brian Illingworth. If he didn't know an answer, he always did the necessary legwork to gather the needed information and then follow up with us. His communication skills are top-shelf and he remained super responsive as questions and concerns arose for us throughout the buying and selling process. Brian became a part of the delicate fabric of our family and a trusted confidante on what amounted to the biggest purchase our family has made to date. I would hire Brian again without hesitation for my future real estate needs. He has my complete and full support.
