What Others are Saying

Adrienne is a very intelligent agent who is detail-oriented and has an out-of-the-box approach to marketing. She does some extremely unique marketing for each property. She doesn’t just do a blanket-type marketing, and that is what makes her really creative and special. If there were somebody that I was going to give a tough transaction to, I would give it to Adrienne because she will get the job done.

It is no wonder why Adrienne Brandes is called the “Closer” — she gets the job done! You don't have to look any further than the sales and listings nearby to know that she is highly successful in her Real Estate endeavors. When I began by search for an agent I was looking for someone that knew my sales area (both geographically and fiscally) and had success as a result. And after meeting her I knew almost instantly she was the agent I was looking for and was perfectly as ease trusting her with my property.

Adrienne has a unique gift of knowing both the market and the psychology of real estate. She knows what is selling, what isn’t, the value of property in Corona del Mar, and how to relate to both the buyers and sellers needs and restrictions. She did so many things to help sell our home that it’s hard to list them all!

She started by helping me address my property needs and staging to attract a multitude of buyers. I am thankful for Adrienne’s expert knowledge when it comes to selling a home. She helped me understand that by staging I could attract a multitude of buyers rather than waiting to find a buyer that had my identical taste. From there, she made sure there was sufficient high level marketing done in target real estate markets and held many open houses so that interested parties could have access to our home and see how spectacular it was first hand. My house had a marvelous ocean view that could only be truly enjoyed by seeing it in person. The pictures and home video tour did a great job showcasing the view but it’s nothing like hearing the waves crash and smelling the saltwater air. Adrienne was always available to show potential buyers the treat that our ocean view home offered. Adrienne quickly found a buyer for a home and represented both parties in the transaction. While this was a bit unusual, I was always at ease. She managed everything and made the process flow seamlessly.

Adrienne is remarkable because she is professional and a woman of integrity— she has the real estate skills, knowledge and drive, and has character you and the buyer will trust. Her prior work experience has given her an innate understanding of people and how to work with them. She has the contacts and drive to achieve the goals you have mutually set when it comes to buying or selling your home. Working with Adrienne has been a wonderful experience and I would recommend her to everyone.

We luckily found Adrienne on a random search for an agent while beginning our quest for a dream home in the Newport Beach area. We were new to the area and she knew every nook and cranny of Newport and Corona del Mar. Beyond professional, organized and on top of every request. She made the purchasing process as low stress as possible and we couldn't be happier with our new home. By far the best agent we've worked with, definitely seek her out!

Adrienne was amazing in helping us and keeping us updated throughout our purchase of our short sale home. She was extremely professional and worked very well with the other agent in order to get us our home in a short time (which is unusual for a short sale). Adrienne treated us like family. We loved working with her, and recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home!

Not only does Adrienne know how to buy and sell real estate for clients, she knows how to do the same for herself. She practices what she preaches. I have been Adrienne’s CPA for the past 12 years now and I was there at the beginning of her real estate career. It has been a real pleasure for me to see her become one of the most knowledgeable and successful real estate professionals in the area. While she has enthusiastically embraced technology to better serve her clients, she continues to excel in maintaining the human touch.

Adrienne is the perfect real estate agent because she is creative in every way – from staging our house to make it look great, to being able to see the potential in any house we looked at, to making deals that no one else could.

Cecilia Goodman, Homemaker

Adrienne has been a blessing to work with. She has done the maximum to find the right buyer for my home, offering recommendations to assist in the attractiveness of the home and investing marketing dollars to make sure potential clients had access. She also saw to it that there were sufficient open houses to make sure we could draw from the ads and activity occurring at nearby homes. If you are looking for someone, honest, pleasant, attentive, who will put your needs ahead of their own and do their best to see that you maximize your price in the most timely manner, i can surely recommend Adrienne to the highest extent.
