"Brian is fantastic and I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Tri-Valley area. He has been my realtor on two home purchases in San Ramon but our search encompasses Castro Valley, Pleasanton, Danville and San Ramon and he is really an expert in all of those areas, having grown up in the area. We've probably looked at close to one hundred houses together over two separate searches in the past seven years and I have always been impressed by how prepared he is for every single property and neighborhood that we have seen, often pointing out aspects of the neighborhood that occurred decades ago that could affect resale value. He has great instincts, meticulous attention to detail and great knowledge of the area. He is also a person of real integrity and I trust his guidance and advice. He really looks out for his clients' interests and isn't in it just to make a quick sale. I've never once felt pressure from Brian and he has demonstrated great patience as we looked at several dozen properties before settling down on the right one in past searches. I haven't had the opportunity to use Brian as a listing agent yet but I plan to use him if/when I list my current residence. I highly recommend him to any buyer or seller."
"I have known Brian Cooney for two decades. Right after I married my husband, Brian found us a fabulous house off Crow Canyon Rd for us to initially rent. Within 7 months we wanted to buy the house. He was a masterful agent. He negotiated every little detail and took such good care of us. His knowledge of the neighborhood was helpful, and was incredible, and supported us in every way possible. Brian is a very special person, professional, first class, warm, and understanding. This is why we have remained friends all these years. I would never work with anyone else."
"We would not hesitate to use Brian again. We have used two real estate agents and we were very very picky and on a specific budget. Brian was hardworking, creative, flexible, and a really wonderful person with good listening skills and a vision for us. He was recommended to us by the chair of our department at Kaiser Pleasanton where I was a new employee. Brian found a rare find the in Castro Valley hills, some thing that fit our restricted budget. There were offers which were above ours but Brian was able to convince the sellers that we were the best choice. Brian moved the escrow along very quickly for both parties, and was able to negotiate for us further, and get us an even better price. Not only did he not get frustrated as our house originally was listed as a conventional sale that ended up being a short sale, and was a huge headache for everyone, but he was able to pull from his list of resources and get us through the legal mumbo jumbo and really watched out for us and protected our best interest. Finally, he also had amazing vision for transforming the place, which really helped us see the vision. We are so happy with our place now, we could not be any happier. And we have Brian to thank."
I highly recommend Brian’s real estate services to anyone who is in the market for a house. He listens carefully to your needs, lets you down gently when you find out the housing market is very unforgiving, and finds a house that will make you happy. All with eventual resale in mind. Brian is an awesome realtor.
"Brian Cooney is not only a first class real estate agent but also a wonderful person. I met him at an open house of his while searching for a home in the San Ramon area. I knew after that open house that I wanted him as my real estate agent. When I found the house I wanted to buy, I called him and he negotiated the deal in 2 days. He was there for every step of the process, from offer to inspection to move in. Now he is one of my dear friends and my real estate agent for life. I highly recommend Brian Cooney to everyone looking for a place to call home."
"I’ve known Brian Cooney for seven years. He has helped me find two rental properties, helped me buy a house in Castro Valley, then managed to sell at a time when the market was at an all time low. I am getting ready to engage him for my next home purchase. No one knows the East Bay as well, particularly the Tri-Valley and Castro Valley area the way Brian does. He has relationships with the other brokers in the area and is universally respected. His background as a paralegal is apparent when he reviews contracts. He understands the complex psychology of both the buyer and the seller. He is careful, discreet, sensitive , and realistic. He will help you achieve your real estate goals, no matter what they are. And if they don’t make sense, he will let you know that. Brian will put as much effort and care into buying or selling a small townhouse as he will into a multimillion dollar listing. To him, it is all about providing the best possible service to a client."
"Brian Cooney is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced Real Estate Agents I have worked with in the past 22 years across the country. I have known him since I moved to California in 2005. He has helped me finding homes and selling them with the utmost professionalism and kindness. He has never put any pressure on me and took time to adjust his schedule to mine in order to show properties. He is very flexible and understanding. Additionally, he has always the clients best interest as his top priority. (Either as a buyer or as a seller) and his advice has been proven extremely valuable on so many different aspects of the transactions. In the current market it is difficult to find an agent with comparable honesty, experience, knowledge and dedication as Brian. I highly recommend anyone looking for a realtor to Brian Cooney, and he is a true gem in the industry!"
"Brian Cooney is an incredible listing agent. He is extremely detailed oriented, an outstanding communicator and honest. He manages his business with integrity. Brian provided comprehensive evaluation of our home value and the neighborhood. He priced it accurately and sold it quickly. He made our entire sale process run smoothly and stress free! He was also exceptionally helpful in helping us find a new place to live!"
"Brian is an amazing agent. We recently worked with him and it was a pleasure to have him as our buying agent. He gives great advice and knows the market well. I highly recommend his services. He is very reachable and always ready to answer questions."
"Available, efficient, Brian was a pleasure to work with. When we first moved to California he found us a great rental that served us very well for 1.5 years. And then he helped us find our first home. He was aggressive but not pushy and has enough experience to guide buyers (and sellers) in the right direction. He is always available by phone or email and always answers all questions. I now consider him a friend given the amount of time spent house hunting and would absolutely use him for future real estate services."
