"Brian was fantastic. Knowledgeable and willing to do whatever it took to get our place sold. He was a pleasure to work with and I'd recommend him to anybody!"

"Brian was an essential part of getting our condo sold quickly and at 99.5% of the asking price with only one day on the market. His enthusiasm, positivity and smarts about the market make him a fantastic realtor. I recommend him highly!!"

"Brian led us from property critique to pricing expectations, pertinent preparation and finally to a closed sale within 2 weeks of live listing, and at 97.6 % of asking price. Aside from a keen knowledge of the area, he nurtures an a binding interest and knowledge in architecture and an eye for detail. Experience has taught him well what sells and realistic competitive pricing skills. His Irish outgoing nature connects well with buyers and sellers alike. He has a natural bent for salesmanship, tempered with equal or more amounts of kindness and honesty. He led us through an incredibly exhausting process, and we’re so very grateful he was at the helm."

"This was our first property in the US. We've owned homes in Canada, England and Scotland. Each with their own peculiarities and laws. And we've moved homes more times than we care to remember. I guess you could say we have plenty of experiences to draw from. Of course, that doesn't mean the process is any less stressful or daunting. That's why we couldn't have asked for a better partner than Brian. Brian strikes the perfect balance of walking you, hand in hand, through all the stages and yet not overwhelming you. He's relaxed and approachable and nothing is too much trouble. (You can imagine the stupid questions a couple of Brits had.) And because in a past life he was a Trader, you can bet your bottom dollar he'll get you the best deal. In fact, actually being super savvy and surprising us with opportunities for leverage and negotiation where we'd never even considered. In short, Brian Behan is the man."

"Brian did a great job helping us find the perfect home, at the right price, in the neighborhood we want to live in. His knowledge of the area helped us find a desirable home quickly, throughout the entire purchase process he kept us well informed, and, on top of all that - he's just a really nice guy to do business with."

"Brian really put his knowledge of the local market to work for me, showing me properties close to public transportation and the hub of downtown Oak Park. He was able to point out and discuss both the pros and cons for each property that we looked at. Ultimately he negotiated a great deal for me and was able to get me into my new home before the holidays. I highly recommend Brian because of his tireless work ethic, strong negotiation skills and local market knowledge. Top notch!"

"Brian was incredible to work with! He provided me with so many options in various neighborhoods and helped me find the perfect unit with everything I was looking for! He was very responsive, knowledgeable, and easy to work with!"

""We were looking for a new apartment rental in a hurry and Brian stepped in when our prior realtor was on vacation. Brian was very accommodating to our short notice scheduling and was able to put together multiple showings. We found our current place when Brian took initiative to show us a few things just a little outside our price range. It ended up working out great because with his help we were able to negotiate the rental price back to our range and it was everything we were looking for. When we were having computer issues signing the electronic lease, he met us the next day to sign everything in person and scan it for us. He followed up with repairs and the move, even showed up on moving day with beer. Brian was great to work with, very knowledgeable about Chicago and we would use him again!""

"Brian has been a great round-the-clock resource for our apartment hunt. He was very patient with our ever-changing "ideal place" and helped us focus our search while still seeing a variety of places. He's a great realtor and will work with you as long as you need to find the right home!"

"Working with Brian was efficient and easy. It was my first time looking at apartments in South Loop in Chicago and he really pushed the envelope to ensure I got the best place that met my needs and stayed within my budget. One thing I really appreciated the most was his response time, as that made a huge difference in the number of units we'd be able to see over our course of working together. His personality is very personable, charismatic and confident. I think these are very important characteristics as an agent and he met all three traits plus some extra that made him really easy to work with. Overall, I'd highly recommend working with Brian because I know he will ensure you the best deal and make sure you are satisfied with your apartment."

"Brian was extremely helpful in all aspects in finding my roommates and I a perfect apartment. He has great knowledge of the city which helped us immensely since we are from out of State. I'd recommended Brian to anyone I knew moving to a Chicago! Found us a place with everything we had wanted and is working with us all the way to the day of move in!"

"I worked with Brian to rent my first apartment in Chicago and I really cant say enough good things about him. He is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with his time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends). He answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly anytime I called. He really relieved my stress level even though we were on a very tight timeframe and budget. I truly believe his expertise helped tremendously in finding my new Chicago home! I highly recommend Brian!"

"If you're looking to find your dream home with little to no stress, Brian is your guy. He was not only helpful during the process, but even afterwards. He promptly responded to all emails, calls, and texts and was there to answer any and all questions. I am so glad we got to work with Brian, as I'm not sure we would have gotten our first choice otherwise."
