Bryan Finkel always answered my phone calls or texts or returned them right away. Bryan was always there to show us any house we wanted to see and was very polite and happy whenever we interacted with him. Bryan was a fabulous agent and answered all the questions I had. We would use him again and recommend him to others.

—Nina MacGuidwin, Folsom CA

My wife and I were referred to Bryan Finkel by close friends of ours and we couldn't be more grateful to have worked with him. Bryan was instrumental in helping us purchase our very first home! He guided us through the entire process from the moment we entered the market to the moment we got our keys! What made the process especially enjoyable was Bryan's ability to make us feel as if we were his only clients. He was always available to show us properties we were interested in, was extremely knowledgeable, always prepared and in communication with all parties involved, and a pleasure to talk to. We were especially impressed with his ability to negotiate the terms of our offer and closing costs. He was able to help us purchase our first home, at a great price, while saving us money. We could not have had a better, less stressful experience purchasing our first home thanks to Bryan. We will most definitely recommend Bryan to our family and friends and we hope to work with him again in the future!

—Luke & Anna, Carmichael CA

Bryan was referred to us by a friend. That same friend spoke highly of Bryan. We wanted somebody who would over-communicate, was trustworthy, honest, and would work on behalf of us "the buyer".

—Michael Avakian, Folsom, CA

Bryan sold our house in five days due to his wealth of knowledge and experience as a realtor. Bryan has been helping me for years, which included the purchase and sale of this home, and purchase of our new home in Folsom. I have and I will continue to recommend Bryan to my family and friends. Thank You

—Jason Colarusso, Folsom

Bryan was always quick to respond to every question and was very knowledgeable about the entire process. He went the extra mile in negotiating on our behalf. Thank you Bryan for helping us through the process of finding and purchasing our first home!

—Lauren, Sacramento

We had an awesome first home buying experience with Bryan! As a first time home buyer, I had MANY questions and he always made himself available to answer, regardless of what time it was. He also always made himself available to view homes at the drop of a dime. If for some reason he could not make it (which was rare) he would make sure we were equipped with all of the information we needed beforehand. When it came to putting in offers, he matched our sense of urgency with each one and was always there to encourage us to keep trying, even when things would not go our way. All of the ups and downs paid off and he helped us land the first home of our dreams!

—Amanda Furia

Bryan was excellent. I only wish I had more homes to sell. In some ways Bryan saved my relationship with my brother. Bryan is a professional who took care of business so that my stress level was minimal. Thanks Bryan

—John Champlin

Bryan was a great realtor and tremendously helped me navigate through the sale of my father’s home. I have a great deal of respect for Bryan’s tenacity and understanding of my circumstances. Bryan was a great negotiator when it came selling my home. I would definitely use Bryan’s services in the future and would recommend him to anyone that looking to either purchase or sell their home. Thanks again Bryan, I wish you the best

—Casey Kelley, Sacramento, CA

Bryan was handed a tough job on this one, since we intended to sell this rental property, as is, to the good tenant who had been there 25 years. For many reasons and no one's fault, that sale ultimately fell through. A lengthy eviction process followed and we lost months in the selling season. With the property now unoccupied, but still selling as is, we started over and soon attracted several buyers, one of whom met our asking price and terms (which Bryan had originally recommended). This process extended to the point that Bryan's marriage and honeymoon occurred before the sale could be completed. However, Bryan had arranged a backup team in his office, and international communications, even DocuSign (new to me), so that forward progress never missed a beat. I recall sending him one email that, among other matters, apologized to Bryan and his bride for barging in on their honeymoon with my real estate details. The extraordinary thing is that there was no delay, no indication that Bryan was anywhere but in Folsom tending to my business. From that point on, the sale was completed as scheduled and we are very happy with the outcome. The unanticipated circumstances involved in this deal created opportunities (not intended) for Bryan to demonstrate his knowledge of resources, patience and ingenuity in putting his customers' interests first.

—Keith Grand, Pleasant Hill

Brian is a full-service broker, taking on any tasks to get the job done. As an absentee seller, I could not be more pleased by Brian's tenacity and attention to detail. Darla Flanagan

—Darla Flanagan, Fair Oaks

This is my second time working with Bryan. He truly understands my needs and home buying desires. Whether it’s purchasing a home or selling an existing home, I wouldn’t consider any other realtor than Bryan. Bryan was able to get my place listed within a week! The staging was wonderful and intimate. We had the open house that weekend and had several offers within a day. I was completely satisfied with Bryan’s performance and professionalism. I will be working with him again on my next investment purchase.

—Terence Kelley, Sacramento

Bryan is a super agent! Bryan brought me a contract in less than a week that was over my asking price with no contingencies, He walked me through the entire procedure answering my many questions and was always available by phone and in person. I would recommend Bryan Finkel to friends and family without hesitation. Carol

—Carol Korotkin Glastonbury, CT ( formerly El Dorado Hills, CA)

Bryan is a very experienced, professional and committed realtor. His knowledge of the local market is excellent. I often felt like he went above and beyond what would be expected from one's realtor when looking for a house. In fact, during house hunting it seemed like he was always finding ways to be helpful and proactive, such as measuring rooms, figuring out where the sun would be at a given property and pointing out construction and cosmetic issues he noticed. With our very specific criteria in mind - he even found a couple houses for us to view that were not yet on the market. During contract and negotiation, he was strategic and exactly the type of agent you want in your corner. Beyond that, he was always accessible and maintained good communication throughout the process. Plus, he would play with my kids (who adore him) while my husband and I were busy looking at homes or signing papers. My toddler even refers to him as Uncle Bryan - need I say more?

—Allison, Folsom

Bryan guided us through a time that was stressful for all involved. He put in effort and his time to make it easy on us as well as sell our property in a timely manner. Bryan went above and beyond our expectations!

—Lynnie Victor, Yuba City, CA

Bryan is a go getter he makes sure things happen on time and are done correctly. He is professional and accurate in everything he does during the whole process. He takes pride in what he does and customer service is #1 to him! You can put your full trust in him and you will absolutely receive fantastic results

—Spencer Dean, Lincoln

Bryan seemed to have an innate understanding of not only the currant local market, but of my own needs and wants – with only a brief consultation. Together we parsed through a list of 100+ homes, and in the course of just two days he helped me select the one home most suited. He also helped negotiate a good price in a competitive situation. I would easily recommend Bryan T Finkel to other home buyers.

—Carole, Citrus Heights

The Man, the myth, the legend

—Alex Avlakeotes

If you want an agent who is going to look out for you, Bryan is your agent! He is highly motivated. He communicated with me through the entire process. All of my calls and texts were returned immediately. He was always kind and professional, and I could not have asked for a better agent. Thanks again!


Bryan was extremely helpful with my home buying journey. As a matter of fact he helped me find my new home. Even when i felt like i was a nuisance he never complained. He is knowledgeable of areas and laws. I would definitely use Bryan again in the future.

—Saulo hernandez, rosemont

Very pleased with Bryan Finkel.Bryan not only sold our house but helped us find a new one. We consider Bryan a dear friend, he will forever be our realtor.

—Laurel Sawyer Rancho Cordova

Brian was professional and prompt with any inquiries. His knowledge made the sale process a very smooth one. Highly recommend him!

—Deborah Thorburn, Davis ca

We had a great experience! Thanks Bryan!

—Andrea Rodrigo :)

Bryan Finkel provided us with strategy and feedback that was very helpful in achieving our goal of a quick sale for a great price.

—Katie & Fred Morehouse, Alamo, CA

Bryan is the most hard working Realtor I have ever seen. I have bought and sold several properties; I have never seen a Realtor work as hard. Bryan was always professional and stayed positive even though my house fell out of escrow twice. I would highly recommend Bryan.

—Steve Whitehead; Folsom, CA

Bryan T. Finkel planned and executed 2 Open Houses the first weekend the house was listed, and got 3 above-asking-price offers by Monday! He is conscientious and respectful.

—Patty Lundquist, Orangevale

In the past 2 years I have been involved in several real estate transactions with Bryan T Finkel. He is without a doubt the best realtor In town. On each of these transactions, he went above and beyond the call of duty. In order to seal the deals, he has lowered his commission, paid for photographers and interior designers, wrote letters, and even helped with moving. He knows his business well. If he does not have an answer, he will go the extra step to research it and ask around. I have recommended his services to my children and friends who are also happy with his services.

—Kelly Vaughn El Dorado Hills, CA

Bryan Finkel was such a pleasure to work with. He not only sold our home in less then two days but we also got 25k over the asking price because of him staging our home. He then took the time to help us find our new home in this tough market and he fought for us when we went up against multiple offers. Because of his help we were able to buy our dream home. I highly recommend using Bryan, he will work hard for you as he did for us!

—Jenna Sullivan

Bryan is a great asset to Lyon Real Estate. He provided me with a handful of preferred lenders and the lender I chose was able to assist me every step of the way through financing. In addition, Bryan had prior experience with the developer KB Home and that helped immensely from the initial contract to the KB Home Design Studio phase. Bryan gave me suggestions at the design studio that I would never have thought to ask or had knowledge of previously. I would highly recommend Bryan to friends, family, colleagues, etc. and definitely trust him to handle my real estate needs. As mentioned previously, Bryan was an exceptional choice for my home buying purchase.

—Terence Kelley, Sacramento, CA

I encountered Bryan at an open house, and soon had dismissed the ineffective realtor I had been working with then continued on to purchase a home with Bryan's assistance. Three years later I sold same home with Bryan's capable assistance. We listed it, held an open house, and contracted the sale all within 5 days time. We closed right on schedule. I am VERY impressed with Bryan's professionalism, and highly recommend him!

—Theresa Mathison, Sacramento

Bryan was a pleasure to work with. We was patient and understanding with us throughout the entire homebuying process. He allowed us to take our time, gave us expert opinions regarding property and house conditions, and was always enthusiastic about viewing properties with us. He was a great representative, and we felt well taken care of. He was able to answer all of our questions and always kept our best interest in mind. We really enjoyed working with him.

—Gabriella- Antelope, CA

Selling our home (and buying a new one) was a very important decision for us. Bryan Finkel guided us every step of the way and made us very comfortable throughout. He was extremely professional at all times, and answered all our concerns patiently, no matter how small they were. His marketing proposal (advertisements, open house, etc) proved to be highly successful and we had multiple good offers in our hands in just a few days. Bryan also proved to be an expert in negotiating a great final contract. His guidance was of great help all the way till the close (appraisal, inspection, etc). Bryan was always approachable and dependable, any time of the day! We have used Bryan Finkel's help on three separate occasions (including this sale), and definitely will go with him in the future too if the need arise.

—Anand N, Folsom, CA

Bryan recently assisted me with a mobile home purchase. Every encounter with him was a pleasure. He was timely, patient and polite. Even though the home I bought was not going to put a lot of money in his pocket, I felt he always treated my needs and concerns with the same respect and attention as a higher spending client. That is what impressed me the most. I would use and recommend Bryan to everyone.

—Rob C. Rocklin

Bryan does it again! Bryan helped us sell our last home and helped us find our new home quickly. His industry relationships and knowledge led us to a smooth timely closing. Bryan is a can do agent and always has a smile on his face despite any adversity. Another great experience with Bryan.

—Ben - Orangevale, CA

Bryan holds himself and his colleagues to a very high standard. His negotiation skills helped us get top dollar for our home. The overall process with Bryan was stress free. He also helped us find another home to buy during the sale of our home. We will continue to work with Bryan for any of our real estate needs.

—Ben - Rancho Cordova

As a first time home buyer I was very hesitant in purchasing a home. I had many questions and concerns during the process. Bryan's knowledge and work ethic went beyond my expectations. He worked closely to ensure all my needs were met and questions/concerns were answered. Bryan was very professional and would recommend him to any friends, family, or associates. He was very involved during the whole process and put my mind at ease.

—Erik- Fair Oaks, CA

I met Bryan at an open house. He gave me a booklet with great information, which I kept for about a year while thinking about the home buying process. Normally, I don't keep things like that, but I felt like he was trying to help me in a manner very appropriate to the type and level of questions that I was asking. Bryan's personality, professional conduct and appearance, and big smile left a lasting impression. I have read many reviews that by others regarding their home buying/selling with Bryan; after working with him, I am convinced that their descriptions of his character and dedication are not exaggerated and, in some cases, maybe didn't fully capture all the positives of their experience. After a quick text regarding THE home I was interested in, Bryan called the real estate agent, found out that they were checking offers the following day, and then set up a private walk through the same day I texted. It was amazing. As I have said many times before, and I will say again, thanks Bryan!


After talking with Bryan, we were impressed with his knowledge and experience with other couples who are first time home buyers. He was very engaged with our needs and wants and we felt confident he would be able to find us the perfect home for our family .

—Marcus and Faith Cooley

Thanks so much, will try to keep the referrals coming! Bryan kept an eye on this amazing property of my dreams and when other bids fell through he quickly and professionally got everything together for my offer. The property is absolutely amazing and I owe it all to Bryan. He swayed me good locations, well maintained properties in my price range and throughly understood my wants and needs for my first home purchase. He came highly recommended and I definitely understand why--his cool demeanor and appreciative approach made the home buying experience easy and stress free! Thanks so much!!

—Kim, Sacramento

I had 6 offers and accepted a cash offer above asking pricing 6 days after listing. Bryan helped me list my property at the right time. I highly recommend him. He knows the market in the area and has a lot of contacts. This process was easy thanks to Bryan!

—Rachael Clifford, Lake Oswego, OR

Bryan is working with my son and he feels that Bryan has very good knowledge of the real estate market. My son referred Bryan to us. It was a pleasure working with Brian. He understood our needs. The purchasing and escrow of our new home went very smoothly because he stayed on top of things. We were extremely pleased. I would recommend Bryan to anyone who is looking for a home in the Sacramento area. Bryan is a strong asset for Lyon Realty. I have a very favorable opinion of Lyon Realty due to Bryan

—Tom Schuster, Rosevile, Ca

A "solid" guy that will do what he promises.

Additional Testimonials

Bryan is an excellent agent and is very knowledgeable about buying and selling homes. He is professional, yet laid back so you don't feel pushed or rushed into making a decision. We found his communication to be excellent and he was always responsive to what we needed. We highly recommend him and would use him again!

I can't possibly say enough good things about Bryan. We've had a lot of problems with other Realtors over the two years that we've attempted to sell our home. Bryan not only pinpointed the perfect time to put it back up on the market, which nabbed us an offer literally within hours of it going up, but he confidently helped us navigate through some pretty unusual speed bumps that came up along the way. Bryan has always been very communicative with the process as well as immensely patient with our incessant questions, texts and emails. Bryan is a super friendly guy and we're very much looking forward to buying our next house with him as well. He's our Realtor for life!

—The Reynolds Family
  /  January 2015

Bryan was my Realtor and having three other Realtors before him he was the one I really liked and helped me find a great house. He listens to what you want and is active in finding the home you are seeking. When we did find the home I wanted he gave me his pros and cons on the home which helped hearing his expertise. Also while talking to the other Realtor he negotiated a better price then what was asked for. I believe Bryan is a good guy and doesn't just want a pay check, but also wants to get the best home he can possibly get you at a fair price. I also was impressed with how he was always able to make time for me, whether just answering his phone or calling back quickly to making it easy to view a home as soon as possible.

—The Montgomery Family
  /  November 2014

I cannot say enough nice things about Bryan. He is honest, dependable and always has a smile on his face. I have had to deal with other real estate agents in the past and unfortunately, they're not all like Bryan. He is patient, understanding and has "people skills" that others lack. He may have been a real estate agent for only two years, but trust me, he knows what he is doing. Bryan is very sharp and detail oriented. When it comes to selling your home, he will do everything that can be done and then some. Overall, I am very satisfied with his level of work, his professionalism and his commitment to his client. I would highly recommend Bryan to anyone who needs a real estate agent.

—Kajikyan Family
  /  July 2014

Bryan exceeded all my expectation as an Agent! I am not local, and Bryan went the extra mile to facilitate the entire home-buying process, even scheduling and meeting the inspectors. He communicated beautifully and was responsive to my questions and requests. I would definitely call Bryan for any residential real estate needs in Sacramento!

—Flanagan Family
  /  April 2014

We had a sudden long-distance relocation, were completely unfamiliar with the area, and we were looking throughout the greater Sacramento region. We met Bryan at an open house; but when we followed-up, the listing had already gone pending. Bryan offered assistance with our search, and though we were already working with realtors in other parts of town, Bryan's amiable demeanor won us over. He represented us into contract in the northern suburbs, and through the fall-out of escrow due to the stalled sale of our prior home. We were all disappointed, but Bryan didn't manifest any frustration. Ultimately we were working exclusively with Bryan, unbeknownst to him. This is because he was willing to forego an exclusive representation contract, he was responsive to our inquiries, he was willing to search through the listings and narrow the presentations to match our criteria, he was willing to research facts about unfamiliar areas, he always accommodated our availability, and he was consistently pleasant. I called Bryan the Sunday we accepted an offer for our out-of-town sale; we had a solid list for viewings on Wednesday, and we worked up our offer that same evening. Bryan did a great job through the purchase negotiation and some last minute escrow delays; and he met us with keys within half an hour of finalization of the purchase. In the end, we purchased in a completely different part of town from our first offer, and we are very satisfied. I highly recommend Bryan as a Realtor, he gets the job done!

  /  February 2014

Bryan texts! I know this isn't ground breaking, but when I wanted to see a house and I didn't have time to schedule an appointment, I could text Bryan the location and he would respond within minutes to give me available dates and times. He made the process easy to manage and explained everything along the way. We were first time home-buyers, so we had a lot of questions. He is a really nice person, very easy to get along with, and we never felt pressured into a house. He also use to work in construction, so he could help us analyze a house and tell us how much work a "fix-it" project would realistically cost us if we chose that house. He even gave us landscaping advice on the home we purchased! We've already suggested him to our friends who are looking to buy a house, and I carry about 5 of his cards on me in case someone else asks for a recommendation!

—Mitchell Family
  /  September 2013

I would recommend Bryan because he is very knowledgeable and honest. Being a first time home buyer he made our home buying experience as comfortable as it can get. His responsiveness and communication with us throughout the entire home buying process made us feel informed and calm(as calm as you can get when buying a house) through the entire process. Even though we weren't his only client at the time we sure felt like we were,and that goes a long way! We definitely would recommend him to our family and friends and in the future when we are ready to buy or sell, we are definitely going through Bryan.

—Martinez Family
  /  September 2013

Bryan Finkel worked with me during the summer of 2012 to help me find a short sale home in the Elk Grove area. I told him what I was looking for, a 4+ bedroom, 2+ bath home in the Franklin region. He quickly signed me up for the Homefinder service through Lyon Real Estate, which sent me notifications of homes for sale that met my specifications. In addition this, Bryan kept frequent communication with me to share homes for sale that may be of interest. Bryan was very flexible in arranging showings and was punctual to every appointment. Through multiple showings and offers, Bryan helped me find a home that I am extremely happy with. He walked me through the short sale process and made it easy and stress free. I had such a great buying experience with him, that in the fall of 2012, I worked with him again to sell my Pocket area home. He did his research, priced it fairly and competitively, and within one weekend of holding an open house, it received multiple offers and is currently pending sale. Bryan Finkel is a well qualified realtor that delivers professional and personal service. I would highly recommend him as a buying or selling agent.
