“Reed did an outstanding job handling tricky negotiations with an inexperienced buyer on a deal which had previously fallen through. Not many brokers could have held it together (and I’ve worked with dozens of brokers over the years). Since I’m out of state he also found vendors to handle the fairly substantial repairs. And, he told me about a way to get back from my insurance company most of the expense of replacing the roof. His handling of the repair contingencies worked out well too. Reed’s know how and judgment in this area is exceptional. Reaching Reed for specific answers was not always easy but his unique ability to perform when it counts far outweighed this minor issue. The final result was excellent.”
“Reed hits 5 stars on all the above metrics but what really makes Reed stand out is his accessibility, patience and ability to take a stressful experience (buying or the sale of a home) and look at it from many different angles. He was hands on in all phases of my recent sale. He provided guidance on presale improvements, staging, marketing and negotiating the final sale. Reed was very involved for me due to the fact that I lived out of the country when I put my house up for sale. Prior to the sale of my house in 2015, I initially went under contract with a lease with option to purchase after 2 years. I had to depend on Reed many times to get involved with the renters given I didn’t live in town and he didn’t hesitate to jump in an do whatever needed including walking through the house a few times to make sure it was being taken care of. Once the lease was up and the tenants decided they didn’t want to exercise their option to buy Reed quickly helped get my house ready for sale.”
“Reed is simply an excellent real estate agent. His knowledge of the Kansas City market is impeccable. He found our current house and showed it to us before it was even on the market. Reed is also patient. He helped us look for houses for more than a year until we found the right one. Personally, if I was in his shoes, such a client would have driven me nuts, but Reed was always in a good mood and happy to show us yet another home until we found the perfect one. Finally, Reed is ethical. My wife was enamored with a home, which needed a lot of work. Reed could have sold us the home and walked away with a good fee. Instead, he helped us see that we would have been ‘underwater’ on the home from the get-go. I’ll always be grateful for his honesty and integrity.”
“Reed is the best real estate agent I have ever dealt with. He is highly motivated and works very hard for to either buy or sell a home for you. I would highly recommend him! We live a town 150 miles from where the home was and he took care of everything for us, including getting contractors lined up to fix things, and staging the home for us.”
"Reed Brinton is a five star REALTOR®. I called him, he came over, listed our house, said it would sell in a week and it sold in three days. He negotiated for the price we wanted, the closing and possession dates we wanted. Throughout the entire process, we never had to go anywhere to sign papers. Reed and his people brought the papers to us. I did not want to own another home but couldn't find a suitable rental. Reed suggested we look at houses for sale and he would find an investor to buy the place we wanted and lease it to us. This was accomplished within a week and Reed negotiated the leasing terms I asked for as well as the cosmetic changes we wanted. This was the best transaction I've ever had in a major purchase or sale. BRAVO REED!!!"
"Reed is the most efficient and personable real estate agent I have had the pleasure to work with, after having purchased more than eight properties in different areas of the country. He impressed me with his extensive knowledge of available properties, and how quickly he was able to arrange showings, as I was here from Florida and had limited time. His work ethic is impeccable, his consistent enthusiasm for his job is contagious, and he takes time to make sure any questions or concerns are eliminated. He "went the extra mile" for me when we did my long distance escrow and actually, he made spending a lot of money into a lot of fun!"
"Whether a first home buyer, or a seasoned investor, you can look forward to a very pleasant and professional experience with Reed Brinton / RE/MAX."
"Having bought and sold several houses in my lifetime, I have learned that realtors are like any professional service, they vary like night and day. I'm not sure about you, but I prefer to sleep at night instead of lying in bed worrying if my realtor has his game on. When you work with Reed Brinton, trust me, you will sleep at night because this guy plays an A game. Taking pride in his family heritage of construction and real estate, Reed works for sellers and buyers to get the best deal possible. He has a sixth sense for knowing the neighborhood and market conditions, which really brings to light possibilities that one may not have thought of. When he was selling my house, I personally stressed over the "garden backyard" that seemed more like a liability than an asset to me when selling a home, but he assured me this would help sell the home to the right person. I followed all of the standard guidelines for selling, and we were under a successful contract in less than one week. If you are looking to buy or sell real estate, you will find one of the best buying/selling experiences with Reed Brinton as your REALTOR®."
"Reed has been our agent on two transactions and he was perfect. As a former agent, I can confidently say I don't know anyone who works harder than Reed does for his clients. He's often in the office before the sun comes up and there after dark. He was immediately responsive, no matter how trivial our question or concern. Reed's experience goes all the way back to his childhood in Kansas City. It's because of his knowledge about area values and his connections that our transactions were so successful. He's as knowledgeable about Kansas City as anyone I know. His clients are incredibly loyal, which say so much about Reed."
"I recently had the opportunity to work with Reed both searching for a new property as well as selling my current residence. My wife and I were searching in the Leawood, KS market which is very competitive and fast moving. Reed's ability to point us in the direction of homes prior to coming on the open market is the reason we were able to not only find the perfect house as opposed to settling, but to do so without getting into a bidding war and having to overpay. His knowledge of the local market and guidance really simplified the process and allowed us to find and purchase a new home stress free."
"Taking his advice and trusting that we could move our current home rather quickly we chose not to list until we had chosen a new one. This is the point in the process where the diligent work of Reed and his team really paid off. They promoted our house vigorously via showings and open houses to the point of accepting an offer within the first few days of being on the market. Normally I would have been satisfied at this point but he was adamant to continue showing and holding open houses and he was 100% correct. We were able to get a second, full price, cash offer which we were lucky enough to accept after the original offer from extremely difficult buyers fell through. Not only was the second offer we accepted for more money, but having it in hand during the negotiation process saved us what would have been thousands of dollars attempting to appease unrealistic buyers."
"I have worked with a number of REALTORS® in the past and Reed was far and away the most professional, knowledgeable and helpful I've ever had the pleasure of working with. I will never again use anyone else in this market and highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell."
