“Brett Barnes is my hero! From the first meeting, Brett took his time and spent energy walking me through the scope of what he does to market your home, and why, as he explains how it benefits you. He makes his recommendations and he always puts you in a position to make informed decisions about selling or buying your home.He is old-school ethical, honest, trustworthy, professional, caring and worth every cent of the commissions he earns! He is new-school with marketing and technology and efficiencies that make the process easy and effective. Behind the scenes, which I never saw, but benefited from, he’s always negotiating on your behalf. Brett kept my and my family’s financial goals and needs in mind throughout every aspect of selling our home and buying our new home. Brett also surrounds himself with wonderful and helpful people who help take care of all the necessary details and keep you moving towards your goals in the most timely manner. I would whole-heartedly recommend Brett for any real estate transaction. Finally, I communicated with Brett at all hours of the day and sometimes night. This may be the best thing of all, I could never reach him for one hour during in the dinner hour because he was busy enjoying dinner with his own family. This is the type of realtor I want to handle my family’s most important decisions!”

“I recently used the Dudum Real Estate Group to sell my home that I owned for 34 years. This was an emotional experience. My agent Brett Barnes was excellent. He was very attentive and patient. I was thrilled when he closed on my home in thirty days at a great price. I highly recommend Dudum.”

“Brett was happy, kind, knowledgeable, honest, on time and helpful. I got everything I asked for and more. My last realtor was very flighty and did not explain parts of the process that were very important. Brett was calm when I was a little crazy and explained everything to me. He did a great job for me and now I am in a beautiful home in a great location.”

~Kelby Houston

“My first impression of Brett is that he was all business, but after our initial meeting I soon learned Brett is a hard-working guy who can also have fun. Many agents like to keep you in the dark to buy more time, but Brett believes in transparency and the concept of sharing information. If you are looking in Concord, Pleasant Hill, or Walnut Creek , Brett is the man. Overall communication with both Brett & his assistant Pam, was timely and alert.”

~Brandon & Erika Imbriale

“Extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Gave perspective and helped bring realistic expectations to home buying. Was determined to help us meet our goals. Our home buying experience caused us to refer anyone talking about buying a home to Brett. Brett is very knowledgeable and will really help people understand the home buying process who have never done it before. Overall we were happy with the buying process even though it was a short sale and it was very difficult. Brett was determined to help us get into what we hoped for.”

~Jeremy Odegaard

“You seemed focused and confident. I could tell you had experience. You are more knowledgeable about the real estate trends and seem to have a better feel for the market than our last realtor. I tell friends that you know what you are doing and will make sure they are taken care of. You will not steer them in the wrong direction. Your availability is good. All of your resources are great because it means I don't have to find a competent person to fix whatever the problem may be.”

~James & Nicole Moore

“Brett was great! He was not only extremely professional, but he was very personal, as well. Brett gave us play by play details throughout the entire process (more than I can say for our listing agent). Work needed to be done to our house prior to closing and Brett did an excellent job making sure the work was done on time. Without Brett, I don't think we would have gotten our home!”
~James & Nicole Moore

~Scott and Laura Gillespie

“Brett was recommended to us. We had an initial meeting to talk about the market, and we were extremely impressed. He was available for any questions or clarifications we needed. Brett became a friend. He cared more for us and the opportunity for our family with this home purchase than for the profit he would make. He was selfless in a difficult selling agent situation. Brett is confident, smart and personal. He is extremely gifted in his field.”
~Scott and Laura Gillespie

~Armando Avila

“To Whom It May Concern- Brett Barnes has been a true pleasure to work with. He is caring, understanding, reliable, trustworthy, consistent and has excellent work ethic. He never gives up until a reasonable conclusion is reached, even then he will try again and again. When he wasn't sure of something, he knew where to go for the sure answer. Punctuality and reliablity is big for me and he has superceeded my expecations. I don't feel I gained a business partner but a lifetime friend as well. I would and will recommend Brett again and again.”

“Brett is a really great real estate agent. When my husband and I were buying our first house, he was there every step of the way. Often he had to explain to us the requirements and procedures, and he was more than happy to "hold our hands" through the entire process. He is extremely likable and efficient and I have already recommended him to several of my friends. When it comes time to buy our next house he'll be our first call!”

~Eric Katz

“I have known Brett for years. He has consulted with me over the years about my property and real-estate in general and I consider him my go to guy for all real estate needs. When the need occurred to sell my property, the first person I thought of was Brett. He has made sure my needs were always taken care of; he worked diligently to ensure I was informed and educated about the whole process and personally makes sure the transaction will go as smoothly as possible. Brett is incredibly knowledgeable about real-estate in general and will use his resources to help his clients in any way. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Brett and I consider him not only a friend but my real-estate partner. Thanks again for everything Brett.”

“Brett has been my go to resource when it comes to anything about Real Estate. I trust his grasp of the industry and trends both nationally and locally. In addition to being well versed in his profession he is a man of great character and goes above and beyond the typical realtor/client relationship. I trust Brett in handling referrals of my valued clients and have the confidence that he will bring to bear his real estate expertise and hallmark client service to meet their needs.”

~Bob McNair

“Given the abundance of Realtors nowadays, it is truly a blessing to work with someone you can trust implicitly, someone who will tell you what you need to know rather than what you want to hear, and most importantly, someone who is willing to work hard... As a Loan Officer, I asked Brett to give me a hand with a purchase -- I did the loan and he did the contract. The buyer was thrilled with the result, and I had a partner! Brett and I continued working together and I can recommend Brett with the highest level of confidence that he will not fail to produce results. He is a gentleman, he has the skills, the connections, and the heart to provide the level of service our client deserve.”
