About Bryan Hurlbut


My business goal is to create a lifetime partnership with my clients. Many see real estate as a “transaction,” that is a process with a beginning and conclusion. However, buying and selling property is an important decision that can affect my clients’ financial portfolios for years. I am committed to providing them the tools to make educated decisions taking long-term goals into account.

To ensure I earn a lifetime partnership with my clients, I will:

  • Work with an overriding emphasis on ethical, professional, and personal relationships.
  • Study properties in the local area, to maintain a high-level understanding of current inventory, prices, values, and how quickly properties are selling.
  • Keep my clients informed about market changes in their specific area.
  • Guide my clients through all aspects of the escrow process, including staging, marketing, pre-inspections, contract negotiations, and timely closing.
  • Stay abreast of the hot-button topics in my field (from legal to technology to marketing), by attending seminars and classes.
  • Put time and energy into my relationships with Realtors in the local community, thereby putting my clients in a superior position when it’s time to sell, buy, or negotiate.
  • Maintain close ties in the community, including my alma mater, Saint Mary’s College, which I attended from 1993-1997.

When I exceed my clients’ expectations, they will:

  • Work with me on the sale or purchase of their next property
  • Refer their family to work with me
  • Refer their friends to work with me
  • Ask me for referrals from people I trust – from contractors and handy people to attorneys and accountants

When my clients trust me to help the people they care about, I have earned a lifetime partnership.
