Brian Gibney

"Brian Gibney is an absolute gem! He was there every step of the way in what was often a difficult condo buying process. Brian worked with us for over 6 months to find our dream home. He was always available, positive, informative, professional, and completely trustworthy. He answered our endless questions with patience and kindness and never made us feel like we were asking a dumb question. His smiling face and positive demeanor were a constant, even when we hit several bumps in the home-buying process. We highly recommend Brian to anyone, whether you are buying a modest condo, like we did, or a multimillion dollar house. Even though we were "small potatoes", he treated us like we were multimillion dollar buyers. We will definitely use him again in the future when we are ready to upgrade to a single family detached house, and he is the only real estate agent we will recommend to our family and friends."
"Brian goes above and beyond to find the perfect for families. We have seen him do this for others as well as for our family. Brian is patient, intentional, and gives fair and supportive advice along the way. We never felt pressured or hurried, but relaxed and calm. Finding a home is typically stressful and overwhelming, but Brian kept things very light and optimistic. We highly recommend Brian Gibney!"
"To anyone looking to be represented by an amazing real estate agent, you will be had pressed to find a more honest, reliable and professional person than Brian. He made selling our home fast, I mean fast. His marketing skills are amazing. He was able to bring the feel of our home to the internet that made my wife and I want to buy our home again."
"Brian got my house sold in 6 weeks when two previous realtors couldn’t even get me any offers. Not only is he a super nice guy but he works well through conflicts & always wants to make sure his client is happy. Will only use him to buy or sell going forward!"
"Brian was very professional and handled the sale of our 4 plex in the quickest and no hassle way possible. He took care of everything from start to finish and before we knew it we were signing and it was a done deal. I would highly recommend Brian as a agent he is both personable and professional in every way, thank you Brain for making our sale so effortless."
"In the last 90 days, Brian sold my house for top dollar in a relatively cold market (within the first few days). The biggest concern was the appraisal because we were pushing the market upward quite substantially. He was very well prepared to justify the pricing to the appraiser and was successful in doing what I though would be impossible. Brian is a very adept and skillful negotiator and his personality (and even his Irish accent) make a huge difference in the process. I've worked with 3 other realtors in prior transactions and none of them compare to Brian. Shortly after closing, he helped me identify a replacement property and his intimate local knowledge of Eastside Costa Mesa allowed me to close at a substantial discount below market as well as secure material credits upon closing. I highly recommend working with Brian for any of your real estate needs."
"Brian's market knowledge and professionalism are impressive. He has assisted us in the purchase of a vacation home in Huntington Beach from the very beginning and along every step of the way. Brian has been incredibly helpful and always available making us feel we were the most important clients. He definitely went above and beyond his scope of work. We live in Colorado, yet his realtor's expertise made a difference during the sale process at a distance. We highly recommend Brian Gibney as your realtor."
"This is a late entry, as Brian was my realtor back in June 2015. I should have written this so much sooner! I decided to finally write this, because he stands out not only professionally, but he is a trustworthy person (which is not something you can say about all realtors) and a decent human being. The home I purchased had several offers but I trusted Brian's advice and offered at a number we both felt comfortable with. I got the house! And afterwards he was very gracious in responding to my questions about loans, house inspections and requesting for some improvements on the house before the sale was finalized. Each step of the way he was professional, kind, caring, responsive and overall great! I recommend him without reservation!"
"Brian was simply the best realtor I could have ever hoped for. I am a new home owner (now) and had heard awful stories about other people's experience with realtors and lack of help. Brian was there with me every step of the way with patience and skill. He worked hard to figure out exactly what I wanted and soon had my needs completely dialed in. Brian was so kind and accommodating to my family members that wanted to join us on open house visits and it became apparent very quickly that he had a keen eye for problems as well as great buys. He was always reachable and would update me often. I know he was busy with other clients, but I always felt like I was top on his list of priorities. I truly believe that his expertise is the main reason I am in my dream house and not still going to open houses every weekend."
"Brian's local expertise help sell our home very quickly. He had great contractor referrals, was quick to respond all of our questions and was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him for all your real estate needs!"
"Brian is an excellent realtor and one of the best I've ever worked with. He's shown us houses to buy, told us what our house is worth and recently rented one of our income properties very quickly. One thing I'd like to mention is he mostly deals with Eastside Costa Mesa and Newport Beach. That being said, he did a great job with comparative market analysis of our home in Orange and rented it fairly quickly. He's knowledgeable, personable, organized and efficient. Recently our tenants mentioned that their relocation realtor was terrible and they'd wished they'd have Brian represent them and will in future. We plan on having a very long relationship with Brian."
"Brian was always available promptly to answer any questions or concerns I had. He was very easy and pleasant to communicate with. I never felt like I was pestering him. He was always patient and kind. He went above and beyond to be helpful. As I was an out-of-state seller it was very much appreciated. He was very knowledgeable and provided excellent professional advice. I would highly recommend Brian."
"Great experience, things ran smoothly, everything was explained to us Brian is a very professional person that was with us all the way through the process of selling our house and buying our new one. Highly recommend his service."
"Brian is such a great real estate agent. He knows the market very well and helped guide us through the selling and buying of our homes. One of the many things I appreciate about Brian is that he is always available. He answered his phone and emails and answered any questions we had. I would highly recommend using Brian with your real estate needs."
"Today it's very hard to find excellent service. It think it's a lost art. But, Brian Gibney was the exception. He was available when we needed him. Also, extremely knowledgeable and kept us well informed. I would highly recommend him."
"Brian helped us buy and sell our home in Costa Mesa. He was very helpful. We were unfamiliar with the area and Brian was able to help us pick the perfect home and neighborhood for our family and when we sold he negotiated a great price. He made the process easy and enjoyable!"
"Brian gave us excellent advice throughout the process. He advised us in the purchase of our home and had great insight into how to add value once we purchased it. He had thorough knowledge of the market and provided skilled negotiation. He was highly responsive to us. I'd highly recommend Brian to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
"He genuinely cares. I had several issues that he really treated me like a family member and either fixed them or followed up until it was resolved. He brought a heater from his home and let me use it till I needed it. Just prompt and courteous every time I needed him."
"Very happy working with Brian to purchase my home. He was very knowledgeable about the area and had a lot of information about what has value in a house and what things to avoid. We found a house after a bit of searching and he was a strong contributor throughout the entire process. He was good at working with the seller to push for things I wanted even when the seller pushed back. Highly recommend."
"Mr. Brian Gibney has been the partner to compliment the process during the sales transaction for our home. He was always in close communication during the sales process. The process was completed expedited by his professional commitment."
"Brian gave us excellent advice throughout the process. He had thorough knowledge of real estate and gave us great suggestions on areas, prices, and home improvement/repairs. He was very responsive by phone, email, and even met with us on short notice."
Brian gave sound advice every step of the way. He always replied immediately to texts and calls- any day, any time. He knows the best painters, cleaners, handymen to do it right for the right price. He is helpful letting you know what needs to be done and then helping to get it done. I never doubted that I found the right person to get my house sold fast for the right price.
"Brian did an excellent job with advertising, negotiating, and making the sale for us. And always with a positive attitude. He had some challenges with our sale and he met and overcame them so we had a successful outcome."
"very responsive to my questions. Knowledge of the area we were interested. Good communicator and pleasant. Supplied information that were valuable in determining our decision. Very good real estate agent."
"If you are looking for an extremely knowledgeable, hardworking, punctual, detail oriented, and a really nice real estate agent, then look no further than Brian Gibney. We started looking for a home in Costa Mesa after a corporate relocation moved us to CA via AZ. It did not take long for us to expand our search to encompass the surrounding areas, eventually buying in Huntington Beach. We went spent several Saturdays going through homes with Brian, and it was comforting to have him there to answer any questions we had, and point out details about the houses and their surrounding areas. When we finally decided upon our new home, Brian worked closely and diligently to seal the deal. He took the time to be present during the numerous inspections we had, and offered us advice on how and what to follow up on. We have bought and sold numerous houses over the years, and worked with many real estate agents, but none have come close to Brian’s level. It was a true pleasure."
"Brian is an excellent real estate agent. He really helped make our new home purchase enjoyable. We will have some rental property up for sale later this year, and Brian is the only realtor we will call. He brings a lot of experience and it really shows in his work!"
"Brian sold a 4 unit property in Santa Ana for me in March, 2015. I was very satisfied with his service, knowledge and negotiating skills. The transaction closed right on time. I would highly recommend Brian for any of your real estate needs."
"Brian operates with the utmost level of integrity and professionalism. He's responsive and truly listens to the needs of the home buyer. He's extremely knowledgeable in the buying process and was willing to answer every question we had. Brian has extensive knowledge of the area and was able to guide us to the place that met our needs perfectly!"
"We were delighted to work with Brian. We started our search in Costa Mesa where he patiently taught us the pros and cons of the area. When we decided to move our search to another area, he was willing to take us there. When we got to the offer stage, he demonstrated excellent knowledge and negotiation skills. He provided excellent resources to assist us with the inspections and paperwork. He made himself very available for all our questions and phone calls. I recommend Brian with my highest recommendation!"
"Brian is a fantastic agent. We couldn't imagine working with someone else for our home purchase. He is very knowledgeable about the industry, personable, and his integrity level is superb. I recommend Brian if you are in the market to buy or sell. You won't be disappointed."
"Brian is by far one of the BEST real estate professionals that orange county has to offer. He definitely lives up to the reviews. I contacted Brian after reading many of his reviews here and two weeks later we were in escrow. He was extremely responsive and always provided an upbeat spirited perspective to our questions. We were moving to Orange county and weren't very familiar with the market. With his expert knowledge of the market he guided us to the right property and away from potential disasters. He showed us roughly 15-20 properties in a single day as if we had a personal property escort. Once we settled on a property, he handled the multiple counter offer situation with a strategic approach that help us secure the property over the other buyers. For those of you who are tech savvy, he uses all the latest technology to make the process easy; from online delivery of prospective properties to electronic/online document preparation and signing, we were able to conduct 90% of the transaction remotely. In addition to guiding us through the process he leaned on many of his contacts who provided services such as property inspection, heating and air conditioning services, plumbing all of whom were reliable and did an excellent job. For those of you who have ever bought a house, these resources are very important and are necessary to completing the purchasing process. Not only did he recommend the above, he also put us in contact with one of his mortgage broker contacts who ultimately got us the loan on the property. Brian is a down right good guy with a great personality. Overall, Brian Gibney is a one-stop-real-estate-shop. Cheers to Brian!"
"Brian worked tirelessly in selling my house in a very challenging market, remaining up-beat and personable through it all. He is a genuine pleasure to work with!"
"Brian has been our Agent for 3 years now, and has helped my family and I with 3 properties over that time. He also sold my last property as well. He is extremely knowledgeable about real estate and the markets, and especially knows his way around all of Orange County's premium neighborhoods. He is great at negotiating for his clients, as well as making sure they find the best property for their needs. As an investor in real estate himself, I ask him for advice all of the time and he has been an amazing resource for me. We've become great friends over this time as well, and I'm so glad we met him 3 years ago at an open house. He truly is amazing to work with, highly responsive, and just an overall awesome person! He comes highly recommended and is in the top 1% of performing agents in Orange County. You shouldn't work with anyone else!"
"Brian handled the rental of my Orange County house, finding the best of tenants. The tenants vacated on Thursday. On Friday Brian had people in to clean the house and refresh the yard. On Saturday he put up the For Sale sign. I had an excellent offer on Monday. All of my experiences couldn't have been better."
"Brian is very knowledgable and professional. He quickly developed a feel for what we were looking for and made the selection process efficient so we could focus on the areas and properties of interest. Once we found what we were looking for he drove the process to completion. Great partnership, exactly what you would be looking for when buying a home. We will use Brian again, and we will recommend him to all our friends, you will make a good decision when you decide to use him too."
"Brian was an absolute professional. He listened to our needs and wants to help identify a great selection of homes for us. He narrowed down a god first list for us and then listened to our feedback on each to help find additional homes that were matched with what we were trying to find. He helped us through the offer process and helped negotiate a fair price for the home we found. He was knowledgeable about all aspects of the process and helped us navigate through the issues. I would highly recommend Brian to friends and coworkers. On our next sale or purchase we will be contacting Brian first."
"Working with Brian was a great experience from start to finish. He was responsive, always willing to share his extensive knowledge and got me a fantastic deal on a new home. I would recommend Brian to anyone looking for a home in Costa Mesa or the greater Los Angeles area."
"My wife and I decided to sell our home in Costa Mesa 1 month ago. We live in Arizona and were reluctant to sell because of the enormous hassle and fear that we would not be able to find the right agent to list our home. We met Brian and were instantly pleased with his approach, demeanor, honesty and drive. His quiet confidence made us feel that he could help us to get this done. Brian sold our house on the first day of the open house. He treated our tenants with respect and was a shrewd negotiator leaving all who were involved thinking we were winners in the process."
"I was looking for a rental or a house to buy because I was selling my current home and had only 30 days to find and fund my new place. I told Brian what I was looking for and he immediately engaged me in several different properties matching my description. He was extremely proactive and did not waste my time showing me places that were above my target price or out of my target area. I was able to put in a offer on a place within one week of working with Brian in a area where the market was tight. Excellent professionalism and very nice to work with. Highly recommend Brian for anyone who is looking to rent or buy!"
"Brian has been extremely caring and helpful in the dealings I have had with him in either buying or selling a home, he has done both for me. I would recommend him for an easy realtor to deal with in this area."
"My wife and I were first time home buyers. We've been searching for a home for the last 2 years and were about to give up until we saw a home listed by Brian Gibney. I didn't want to go see the house because I told my wife all the real estate agents that have represented us were so dishonest. They all represented us for their interests rather than our interests. But my wife dragged me along to see this "last" house in Laguna Hills and we just made a crazy offer on this short-sale since we never thought we would get this house. About 4 weeks later, we got a call from Brian saying the bank had accepted our offer. We were just shocked!!! Brian said we were the first to make the offer and he chose us first rather than accepting any other offers. We couldn't believe Brian accepted our offer rather than accepting other offers that were more than ours. Brian's office worked with us and provided us all the support with the financing all the way to the close of escrow without a problem. Like I told Brian, we are very blessed. We could not believe we found an agent/broker who was so sincere, honest, and helpful in helping us secure our first home. Our 8 year old daughter now is so excited that we no longer come home to an apartment but a wonderful home in a wonderful community. Our recommendations is search for "Brian Gibney" if you're looking for a home. It's very difficult to find an honest agent/broker nowadays. We truly believe the Lord directed us to Brian. We would recommend anyone to Brian to help them find a home."
