    Bryan and his team were amazing. They represented us well and helped us buy a wonderful home and sell our existing home. We closed on both the same day which would not have been possible without the help of Bryan and his team. They handled all the details for us and made the two closings in one day possible. They had helpful reminders throughout the process, letting us know their next steps and a checklist of items we needed to do to ensure a successful move. It truly was an incredible experience that would not have been possible with this team.

    We have known Bryan for many years and of his great record in home sales. For our recent home purchase we worked primarily with Kristin Chamberlin ~ smart, professional, easy to work with and provides answers to questions before we even asked. Kristin was quick to respond to any concerns and to provide us with answers ~ she was a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend Bryan and Kristin. -- Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Watkinsville, GA
    We highly recommend Bryan and Kristin! We were selling our house to relocate across the country for work. Bryan helped us plan when to put the house on the market to have a high probability of selling at just the right time: before we left town, but not too early that we had to find alternative housing for an extended time. He also laid out all the contingencies if the timing didn't work out. We were also very concerned about a house directly across the street that had more beds, baths, and sq ft that had been on the market for over 6 mo. But Bryan was convinced the quality of our house was higher overall and we decided to list above their price. We got a full price offer a few days after listing and closed a week before we left town (well before the other house). Couldn't have been timed better! -- Sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Bogart, GA
    Bryan sold our house in record time! He And Kristen made the entire ordeal seamless and pain free. They did all the behind the scenes work for me, and Bryan even helped me switch loan companies in the middle of buying our new home. I felt totally safe and valued knowing they were making sure all the i's were dotted and t's were crossed. Best realtor out there! -- Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Athens, GA
    Bryan and his team are excellent. Bryan had a plan, based on economic principles and thinking. He didn't overpromise or engage in "the" selling pitch. He did what he said he would do, and is an exceptionally nice fellow. The process itself was very professionally managed, with his team staying "In touch" and handling the little details. They prevented the little things from "falling through the cracks" and followed up before and after the sale. I can't recommend Bryan and his team highly enough. -- Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Watkinsville, GA
    Bryan and Kristin are amazing realtors to work with! They sold our home the first day it was on the market and then found us the perfect home to move into. They worked extremely hard and we couldn't have asked for a better team! -- Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Athens, GA

Thanks Bryan, Kristin, and Trace for guiding us through our purchase. -- Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Bogart, GA
    Bryan and Kristin were wonderful to work with. My home had been on the market for months with no activity. After they took over, I had a contract within a couple of weeks. Their professionalism and aggressive marketing strategies made selling my home a positive experience. I highly recommend Bryan Bufford and his team if you are buying or selling. -- Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Watkinsville, GA
    Our experience was totally with Trace Colson, an associate of Bryan Bufford. Trace was professional, responsive and helpful. After showing us a house, guiding us through the process of making an offer and us not getting the house, he followed up with another possibility which we ended up purchasing. -- Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Athens, GA
    Bryan Bufford and his team were the best. From beginning to end, they took us through each step of selling our property and kept us informed of all updates. And on top of all that, they helped us sell our property for above asking price! -- Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Athens, GA
    If you have a need to list your home and or lot Bryan and his staff are amazing. Bryan is very responsive replying to any and all questions. It will not take you long to find out his staff is professional and first class, Kristin will walk you through every process in detail. One impressive thing Bryan did was really invest in what the list price should be, honesty and details was a huge point and we where very close at the end, sold my home fast and closed with no issues. I will use on my next sell or purchase. -- Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Watkinsville, GA
    Bryan and Kristin were knowledgeable, responsive, and proactive. Kristin really took all of the worry out of the home shopping process and constantly provided us with new listings that met our criteria. We have recommended this team to friends and family. -- Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Bishop, GA
    Bryan and Kristin were there with us through all the good moments and breakdowns of losing 6 contracts on houses before finding our oasis. Even when we could look at homes last minute, Kristin was in her car and sharing photos of houses and negotiating contracts while on her vacation. I have never met a more dedicated group to find not just any home, but the perfect home! My wife and I are not easy when it comes to decisions and the patience they had with us is more than I can say for most. I would never go with any other team to purchase or sell a home. I will be referring all my friends to them! -- Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Danielsville, GA
    He was very professional and negotiated a good deal. He really put the customer interest first. Bryan worked on this deal after hours until it was complete. He kept me informed on any changes. -- Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Watkinsville, GA
    We have known Bryan for many years and of his great record in home sales. For our recent home purchase we worked primarily with Kristin Chamberlin ~ smart, professional, easy to work with and provides answers to questions before we even asked. Kristin was quick to respond to any concerns and to provide us with answers ~ she was a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend Bryan and Kristin. -- Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Watkinsville, GA
    I was referred to Bryan via a friend I went to high school with from Evans, GA. My boyfriend and I were relocating to Athens, GA and she lived in Watkinsville, GA. She recommended Bryan having worked with him to purchase her home. Bryan was extremely professional on the phone. I could tell he was very experienced in real estate as well. He connected us with his buyer's agent, Kristin Chamberlin. We LOVED working with Kristin! She took notes during showing appointments so we could discuss and assess the spaces. We ended up building a new home in Winterville, GA and Kristin showed up for design meetings and walkthroughs. We are so grateful for her knowledge and coordination of everything throughout the process. I highly recommend this team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the greater Athens, GA area. -- Winterville Buyer (Relocating)
    Bryan and his teammate Kristin, were excellent in arranging for the listing and sale of our home and 20 acres. Despite repeated comments by other realtors that it would be difficult to sell and it would take a long time, we had two offers, one for full price, within a week. Bryan arranged for a drone video and still photography shoot that really sold the house. It was done by a skilled professional and really showcased our property. While Bryan is the leader, Kristin was wonderful to deal with as to staging the house, providing comparison information about the two offers and handling many of the listing and closing details. We highly recommend both of them. They are true professionals who know their business and were great to work with. -- Crawford Seller (Retiree)
    From talking us through comps and pricing, to prep, to listing and showing, and finally the closing process - all communication was on-point and ahead of schedule. Can't recommend them enough to anyone considering selling!!! - Watkinsville Seller
    Bryan and Kristin are an amazing team. There was never a doubt throughout our entire buying and selling process that they had anything but our best interests in mind. They helped with everything that came up throughout the process. They responded to requests in a timely manner and they were always available. If they missed our call, we knew wed hear back from them quickly. They also made the closing process as easy as possible. They were extremely professional during both the buying of our new home and the selling of our old home. I would highly recommend using Bryan as a realtor to anyone who is looking. He and his team are amazing. -- Seller and Buyer (Relocating)
    Bryan is a great agent and was easy to work with. I had the great pleasure of working mostly with his associate Kristin Chamberlin. Kristin was truly a pleasure and never failed to steer me in the right direction. She knew Athens area as if she had been there forever. I feel very fortunate to have had here help me every step of the way from searching to closing and even now whenever I have questions. Bryan and Kristin will not disappoint! -- Athens Buyer (Relocating)
    If you are not calling Bryan to get your house listed and sold right away, you are doing it wrong. He knows his stuff and is an honest man. When we first called him, we were not sure if we were going to sell. He still took the time to come by and talk to us. He followed up with advice and very wise suggestions on how to move forward. But not once did we feel pressured into signing anything or contracting him. He earned this business, and I recommend you give him a shot as well. You will not be disappointed. -- Watkinsville Seller
    Both Bryan and Kristin were extremely helpful in our search for and purchase of a house in the Athens, GA area, while we resided in North Carolina. Kristin met with us, took us to many homes, and presided over the offer and purchase procedure. She is dedicated, smart, personable and attentive. -- Watkinsville Buyer (Relocating)
    We worked with Kristin Chamberlin and Bryan Bufford to purchase our first home and could not recommend them more highly. Our primary point of contact was with Kristin, and she was very responsive, knowledgeable, and kind. She made the complicated business of buying a house incredibly easy, and provided us everything we needed to feel confident at each step of the process. Would 100% work with them again. -- Watkinsville Buyer (First Time Buyer)
    Bryan Bufford and Kristin Chamberlin worked harder than I ever would have expected them to! When you choose them, you will be assured integrity and down-to-earth guidance throughout the entire process. Their competence becomes your confidence! I highly recommend this real estate team! -- Athens Seller (Relocating)
    Bryan and his team were absolutely top notch from the minute we met them. Bryan and Kristin always kept us informed and updated through every step. They were never pushy or manipulative as we have experienced with some of our past realtors. Bryan was encouraging throughout the process, and never tried to get us to drop our price or take less than our place was worth, just to speed up the sale. When the offer we were waiting for came in, he was calm and took the time to explain all our options. We feel like we had the best possible experience with this sale. -- Watkinsville Seller (Retiree)
    From the search, to the offer, and until the closing, Bryan and Kristin did an amazing job! House search- Bryan was patient, spent an incredible amount of time with us and was deliberate in not persuading us toward any one house. He let us determine our own opinions and only offered up his thoughts if we solicited it. Our price range was fairly wide and we never felt he was pushing us towards the more expensive homes. Offer- Bryan did a good job explaining the market, looking at comps, and worked with us to submit an offer that we felt comfortable with. After the offer was accepted, that's when Kristin's expertise kicked in (see below. Closing process- after the accepted offer and up until closing day, Kristin was there for us. Always quick to respond, no matter the time of the day, we never had to wait long for information. She worked closely with our lender and the closing attorney to ensure everyone, not just us, were doing there part and staying on track. One example of her and Bryan's dedication to their clients: we were concerned about the location of the septic because we wanted to install a pool. Kristin and Bryan pulled drawings, sought expert opinions, and even visited the local municipalities to investigate the situation fully and provide us the facts. We didn't ask them to go the extra mile... they did this on their own. As we were relocating from out of state, Bryan and Kristin's support and guidance were invaluable to us. We were highly satisfied with our experience and would highly recommend. They certainly earned their 5 star review! -- Oconee Buyer (Relocating)
    My budget made it difficult to find a home that was move in ready but Kristin Chamberlin and Bryan Buford hung in there with me. I found an adorable ranch home that was completely remodeled in a good location for me. -- Winder Buyer (Downsizing)
    Working with Bryan & Kristin to sell and purchase couldn't have been a better experience. They were fantastic from the minute we started working together. Bryan guided us in preparing our home for purchase and got us an offer surprisingly quickly that we were more than happy to accept. Kristin showed us some great homes, sometimes more than once, and really listened to what we wanted (or didn't want) and was available to answer even the most crazy questions. If there were things she didn't know, she was great at following up to find the answer promptly. Out of 5-stars I'd give them 6. -- Athens Seller and Buyer (Growing Household)
    Great working with Bryan and his team. Quick response in finding buyer(s). Would definitely recommend to others. Found multiple buyers. Successfully negotiated higher price than originally listed. -- Oconee Seller (Land)
    Bryan & his team member Kristin were AMAZING to work with! Bryan listed our small farm and we were under contract in just 2 weeks!!! Bryan & Kristin were wonderful about answering all of our questions, giving advise and guiding us through the entire sales process. The drone video and photography that they did was beyond anything we expected. Their communication from start to finish was spot on! Highly recommend Bryan and will definitely be calling him in the future when we look to buy/sell our next property!!! -- Royston Seller (Downsizing)
    Sold my investment property in one week!!!- At FULL price!! Far exceeded my expectations. Great team to work with. The team kept in touch with me throughout the sales process and assisted with long distance closing process. --Oconee Seller (Investment Home)
    Superbly attentive and honest. Very much the professional at all times, but great sense of humor and a real pleasure to work with. He provided expert counsel on all matters in a very timely fashion. His associate, Kristin Chamberlin, was excellent as well and is an important part of the team. -- Oconee Seller (Relocating)
    We contacted Bryan initially based on positive feedback from friend of ours, and could not have been more satisfied with the process. Based on the levels of competitiveness, Bryan and Kristin were excellent guidance, knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with their time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several weeks). They answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Selling a house in this market can be challenging, but working with Bryan and Kristin made it as painless and straightforward as possible. We highly recommend them. -- Oconee Seller (Growing Family)
    Bryan and his team were super responsive, respectful to the tenants, and provided the perfect amount of information to make our decision. We would highly recommend. --Athens Seller (Investment Property)
    We interviewed three terrific agents, but we went with energetic, personable Bryan Bufford because he spent twice as long with us on our initial walk through of the house, asking detailed questions and answering ours. We think we made the right choice. His secret weapon may be Kristin Chamberlin, who teams with him on his listings, and is also a kind, knowledgeable and an enthusiastic pro. --Athens Seller (Estate Sale)
    Kristin and Bryan went above and beyond in their efforts to help us in our move. We moved into Oconee from out of state with a firm timeline and a long list of expectations. They took our list and worked the problems, and we ended up in a house just right for our family. Buying a house is a big deal, but their expertise and confidence kept the stress to a minimum. Thanks! --Oconee Buyer (Relocating)
    Bryan and Kristin were amazing to work with. My property was multigenerational family land so it was a very emotional sale for me and they held my hand the entire process and accepted my emotional rollercoaster ride. Bryan is very knowledgeable and researches every detail so if a potential buyer has a question he can be prepared with an answer. From discussion of listing, to listing, to showings, to comparing offers, to the closing..... I was kept in the loop the throughout the whole process. Very satisfied and highly recommend Bryan! --Oconee Seller (Land Sale)
    I cannot say how great both Kristin and Bryan were. From the moment we met Kristin she was very polite and she is great at what she does! All we have to say is she's amazing! She helped us every step of the way, and made sure we understood the process. Especially as first time home buyers! They work so hard, and with their help we were able to purchase our first home! --Athens Buyer (First-time Buyer)
    Bryan and Kristin were excellent! We sold our houses in record time and bought a house with them as well. They stuck with us through a long, complicated process (not their fault, just the circumstances) of house hunting and ultimately helped us find something perfect! I would recommend them 100%. They are always committed to doing what is right for the client and never pushy. -- Oconee Buyer (Relocating)
    Bryan helped me sell my Athens Condo unit. After trying to sell the unit myself unsuccessfully, I contacted Bryan. He and Kristin did an excellent job from start to finish, including market research on a listing price and giving me updates on viewing traffic for the listing. I highly recommend Bryan Bufford and his team. Thank you Bryan and Kristin! --Athens Seller (Relocating)
    Bryan's Team has an amazing response time. Any time I had questions or concerns they got back to me immediately. I had a constant supply of information that was up to date and eventually lead me to buying my new home. Can't go wrong with using them! -- An Athens Buyer (First-time Buyer)
    Brian and Kristin were extraordinarily responsive to our needs and kept us informed throughout the process of selling our home. The marketing and presentation were first class and we had an offer within a week and closed in a month. Excellent customer service and delivered a product as promised. I have no reservations whatsoever recommending Brian and Kristin to anyone selling or purchasing a home. -- Peter Walton (Relocating)
    Kristin & Bryan were fantastic. They gave great guidance, were attentive and saw my transaction all the way through. This included one transaction we terminated because the Selling Broker was unreasonable. I am actually a licensed broker myself, but wanted expertise from the local market. I definitely made the right choice! I would recommend Bryan & Kristin without hesitation. -- Damon Werner (Investment Home)
    Bryan and Kristin are very nice toward customers and provide great service. They keep track of your tasks and guide you throughout the process. It was a great experience for me personally because I learned new stuff that I didn't know before! -- Irene Xu (First-time Buyer)
    Bryan and Kristin are AWESOME!! We got from list to close very quickly. Their promptness in answering questions and their professionalism in service were impeccable and second to none. They make a great team!! If you are in need of a top notch team for your real estate services, I definitely recommend these two professionals. -- An Oconee Seller (Investment Home)
    Bryan and Kristin did an amazing job at helping us not only sell our previous home but to also find us a new home! They didn't stop for a single second until we were completely satisfied with the entire process! Working with them was super comfortable for my wife and I and they made it feel like we were working with friends instead of with a business. Don't hesitate on working with them at all! -- An Oconee Buyer and Seller (Growing Household)
    Hands down the best team to work with! Bryan and Kristin are very professional with their marketing. They went over and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly during this process. They blessed us with a quick sell and purchase, just in time for Christmas and the New Year. Thank you!!! I highly recommend Bryan and his team. -- Norris's (Growing Household)
    Can't say enough how great Bryan is. We bought our house through him 6 years ago and just sold our house through him this month. He's the best there is and very responsive. I highly recommend him! -- An Athens Seller (Relocating)
    Bryan's associate, Kristin Chamberlin, worked with us to find a house to buy in Oconee County. Her knowledge of the area was fantastic and she was able to show us many homes that had the qualities we were looking for. Once we decided to build, Kristin was with us for every step of the process and was a huge advocate for our needs with the builder. Bryan was also great! He was a huge help at our closing in making sure we were taken care of by the builder. I highly recommend this team if you are looking to buy a home in the Athens, GA area! -- Josh and Tara Hawkins (Relocating)
    Bryan recently helped us sell a house in a somewhat sketchy neighborhood in Athens. He and his staff were professional, efficient, knowledgeable, and absolutely on top of things every step of the way. The circumstances surrounding our house sale were somewhat unpleasant, but Bryan was warm and caring and did everything he could to help us. I highly recommend him as a realtor. -- Athens Seller (Investment Home)
    Bryan and Kristen were both AMAZING in the home buying process. They were extremely helpful and always very prompt in replying with any questions we had in the process. I highly recommend them to anyone wishing to buy a home in the area! They will definitely be where we point any friends or family looking to buy a home. -- Branhagen (First-time Buyer)
    Bryan is a highly talented and gifted agent. He has assembled a wonderful team that thrives on taking care of their clients. All are very good listeners which is a good attribute when you are depending on them to sell your house or find a home for your family. I enjoy recommending Bryan to everyone that has real estate needs. -- An Oconee Seller (Investment Home)
    Bryan has been our realtor of choice for three house searches and one sale over the past 8 years, and we'd happily use him again, provided we hadn't found our favorite house on our newest move back to the area. He and his associate Kristin are honest, responsive, hardworking people who make a sometimes headache-inducing process smoother and easier to manage. They were there from an answer in 15 minutes after we had moved away 3 years ago, through finding just the right house for our diverse family, navigating some difficult negotiations, and a good time at the closing table, having come out with our wonderful home at the end. -- Molly Bilbow (Relocating)
    Our agent was Kristin Chamberlin. She worked hard and kept us updated throughout the whole home-buying process. She was very responsive and willing to show homes on very short notice. Once we had a contract on a home, she maintained consistent contact with the lenders and lawyers to ensure that everything closed in a timely manner. We couldn't have been happier with her as an agent. Thanks Kristin! -- Justin and Casie Tyson (Relocating)
    We used Bryan and Kristin to buy our home and I knew from the start I would not be disappointed. I was not disappointed but WOWED by my experience. Bryan and Kristin are thorough, knowledgeable, and for us life savers! We had a special situation and they listened and cared to help us find the perfect home! -- Linda Williamson (Growing Household)
    Bryan and Kristin, Both of you were amazing, as we knew you would be! That was seriously the best and easiest buying and selling experience we've ever had. On the buying side, you were always able to show us houses quickly, you helped us flesh out reasonable offers, and you found answers to every single nitpicky question we came up with. On the selling side, I don't think any other team in town could have done what y'all did--from listing to closing in 40 days on a house in a flood plain. You were transparent and honest with us about the realistic market value of our house, you talked our buyers off the ledge when they got spooked by flood insurance after having a few days to think about it, and you helped us sell it for the price we needed to get. At both of our closings, every single detail on our side of the transaction was hiccup-free. If we had any constructive criticism to offer, we would, but y'all really did everything right! We are so grateful for all the work y'all did to make the process fast and seamless, including recommendations for a great home inspector and closing attorney. We all love our new house, and we are in a better financial position now to be able to help Zack pay for college, which was one of our main goals. Thank you for everything!! -- Tami and Chris (Downsizing)

    Bryan was definitely on my side when it came to selling my house. He only wanted to do what was best for my wife and I. He was very honest throughout the entire process and made sure that I understood everything that I needed to. I won't sell my house again without Bryan's help. -- Matt and Mary Ann Murray (Growing Household)
    Top Notch Agent: Streamline communication. pleasant to speak with, was more interested in my needs than his, honest assessments, highly optimistic, wonderful assistants and staff. What more else could you want?! Not to mention, my house was under contract in less than a day for exactly the price I wanted and closing was flawless. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! -- Eric and Sarah Vevang (Relocating)
    Bryan and Kristin were wonderful in all aspects of selling our home. They were always attentive to our many questions and had our best interest in mind as sellers. We are so thankful we chose this amazing team! -- Sold a Single Family home in 2021 in Athens, GA.
    Bryan and Kristin did such a great job helping us find a the perfect home for us. As first time home buyers we were intimidated by the process but Bryan and his team made us feel comfortable and walked us through every step. We will definitely work with Bryan again! -- Tyler and Sara Guill (First-time Buyer)
    Bryan Bufford and His associate Kristin Chamberlin are exceptional. They were there for us every step of the way. It was so comforting having them there to help guide us as we viewed homes as well making good suggestions and/or recommendations. Overall a great team and We highly recommend them to others looking for the perfect place to call home. They made the home buying process go smoothly and we are so grateful to be in our own home. We owe it all to the help of Bryan Bufford and Kristin Chamberlin at Coldwell Banker as well as our financing team at Homeside Mortgage. Thank you all for your hard work! God Bless! -- Justin Layman (First-time Buyer)
    I have nothing but great feedback to give. I had (and still have) reservations about representing both buyer and seller. I feel like that can be a very fine line to walk as to whose interests are represented. That said, I feel like our interests were always very well represented and that Kristin and Bryan both made this situation as easy as possible. We were wishy-washy sellers as we thought we were just testing the market. We never really expected to get the "make us move" price we wanted and needed to make moving possible. As a result, we were really caught off guard; Bryan was fantastic with suggesting the "reverse contingency" solution that gave us the time and space we needed to find a house. I don't think we would've committed to selling without that. I was especially grateful for Kristin's diligence and flexibility in showing houses to us. Our schedules were so chaotic that you had to show houses to us each separately and then together if we both liked it. That doubled and sometimes tripled her workload...and that was something that was never lost on us. Despite the workload, she always seemed willing and happy to help. The process itself was new to us as we'd never gone through buying a house through a realtor or selling to a non-family member. Kristin and Bryan both made it very painless. There was some uncertainty on our part at times, as well as questions, but I always felt confident that I could get in touch with one of them and that they would have the correct answer or find the solution. Should the time come for us (hopefully in the distant, distant future!) to sell our new house, we will certainly be calling them! -- An Oconee Family (Relocating)
    Thanks Bryan for your courtesy and professionalism in our search for our new home in the Athens area. As we were moving from another area in Georgia your knowledge of the local area was most helpful. -- Debbie and Ted Bair (Downsizing for Retirement)
    Working with Bryan and Kristin was awesome! We had nothing but good experiences with working this team. Excellent recommendations, easy to get in contact with, and VERY patient as we took almost a year to find the right place to move. Once we found our new home, we were able to list our old home and received multiple offers. In touring the new homes, we realized that the advice Bryan and Kristin gave us certainly helped us receive offers that were significantly better than we would have otherwise. It was obvious that they are experts! -- Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Watkinsville, GA
    Our journey buying a home with the Coldwell Banker Realty has been a wonderful experience. Bryan's team was extremely helpful and courteous in understanding our urgent needs of seeing the house as soon as it's available, especially Kristin Chamberlin. Kristin was professional and very well organized. She was quick to respond and made the process of buying a home much easier for picky buyers like us. We are very happy with the entire process and would highly recommend Coldwell Banker Realty and Kristin Chamberlin! -- Lainey and Sam (Investment Home)
    Bryan Bufford and Kristin Chamberlin have helped me sell 3 homes and purchase 2 homes. Bryan and Kristin are very patient, knowledgeable, precise, answer all questions at all times of day and night and have helped me tremendously in the processes of buying and selling homes. I would recommend Bryan and Kristin to anyone who needs to buy or sell a home. Be prepared: Bryan and Kristin work fast and as they like to say, "we will make you homeless!" -- Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Athens, GA
    Bryan sold our house in record time! He And Kristen made the entire ordeal seamless and pain free. They did all the behind the scenes work for me, and Bryan even helped me switch loan companies in the middle of buying our new home. I felt totally safe and valued knowing they were making sure all the is were dotted and ts were crossed. Best realtor out there! -- Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Athens, GA
    We had the wonderful pleasure of working with Kristin Chamberlin who helped us buy our first home. We were nervous and bewildered at the thought of starting a process that was new and confusing for us, but Kristin made it ever so painless. She took the time to explain things when we had questions, provided the structure we needed to meet deadlines and anticipate steps to come, and was delightful all the while. She totally understood what we were looking for and provided great suggestions and insight. We now live in a home that we love and we know that we have Kristin to thank for helping make that happen. We would (and have) recommended Kristin to others looking to buy a house and will always remember that she was instrumental in helping make our dream a reality!! -- Louis and Casey (First-time Buyers)
    My husband and I were very happy with our home-buying experience! Bryan and his team were great, and extremely responsive. Buying a home can be stressful, but we felt at ease with the process because we knew we were in good hands. -- Mary Olson (Relocating)
    We can't say enough good things about our experience with Bryan and Kristin during the purchase of our new home. They helped us stay on track and went the extra mile to help us during the negotiation process and the closing. They provided great information to help us connect with local vendors who made our move-in a great experience. I highly recommend this team and should we ever need realtors in the future, we will definitely reach out to Bryan and Kristin! -- Bogart Buyer (Relocating)
    We worked directly with his assistant, Kristin C., who was very helpful. She was very motivated to help us find the right house for our family. We never heard a "No" or that she was too busy to show us the house that we wanted to see, when we wanted to see it. The communication was awesome and the overall process couldn't have gone any smoother. I definitely recommend to anyone considering buying a house, to work with Bryan and his team. -- Carey and Erika (First-time Buyers)
