Brian helped us sell our Ann Arbor home in 2019, and we are very, very happy that we choose him as our Realtor. We had moved 500 miles away, so we knew we had to work with someone we could trust, as we were not in town to supervise any of the steps in the selling process.
Brian gave us a solid understanding of all the rules, regulations, zoning issues and showing protocols that related to selling our home. He gave us sensible and financially-sound advice when issues came up during the inspection of the property. He checked on our home frequently to make certain that both air conditioning and furnace were working property during adverse weather. Important to us, he guided us through remote signing of all the real estate sale papers, as we were hundreds of miles away and couldn't drive back for the final signing.
After closing, he didn't forget us, - making certain that refund checks and escrow payments were forwarded on a very timely basis. All in all, working with Brian was a great experience, and we both feel he deserves a 5 of 5 stars rating.

Brian helped us with the sale of our Dexter home in the summer of 2019. He was very professional, and was a pleasure to work with in every aspect of the sale. His constant attention to detail and his phone calls back and forth to us during that time were beyond helpful and were much appreciated. We would both highly recommend Brian to anyone looking to hire a professional Realtor.
Roger and Natalie Kaliman, Dexter
Brian was helpful from the very beginning of our moving process. He introduced himself with an entire notebook which explained the process and procedure for selling a home, frequently asked questions, time-table, responsibility of the realtor and the responsibility of the homeowner. It was very helpful and a perfect way for us to begin.
We worked together for 6 months. Brian was not only helpful, he was also very patient! He guided us through the steps of putting our house on the market and showing our home. He was accessible. He listened well, responded clearly and always invited our response.
When it was time to close, Brian was immensely helpful as he explained and prepared the paperwork involved. He told us what our responsibility would be, and what would be the responsibility of the buyer.
Then, just last week, we found an envelope from Brian Hill in our mail. It’s been 6 months since we closed and he still has us on his radar! He wanted to remind us that the sale of our home last year might be an influence when we file our 2018 tax return.
Selling our home was a big step for us. Brian’s guidance and presence with us made all the difference. We couldn’t have had a better experience from beginning to end.
Fernando and Lois C., Dexter
We have used Brian Hill for a number of real estate transactions. His professional yet personal approach is distinctive. His exceptional knowledge enables his customers to navigate through and understand a complex process.
You know he is on your side in the negotiation process. And along the way, you have the pleasure of working with an authentic gentleman who is kind and understanding.
Richard H. and Lora S., Ypsilanti
Buying or selling a house is one of the most complex transactions any of us make in our lives. From the moment we met, I was completely at ease with the prospect of selling my house and knew Brian was a person of great integrity. In this age of impersonal electronic communications, I found his personal touch most refreshing and reassuring.
His professional skills combined with his dedication to his clients provided services and comfort that I never imagined from a real estate broker. Regardless of what issues came up, I never felt alone or concerned that Brian was not representing me. His help in “knocking off” the checklist of things to do and the time he spent with me dealing with it all were most appreciated.
I am sure he is a rare find, and I am very grateful and lucky to have come by his service. I would not hesitate to recommend Brian to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
Peter M., Whitmore Lake
Brian Hill did an outstanding job handling the sale of our vacant lot located in a developed Dexter neighborhood. His research to guide us in the initial valuation of our property was extremely detailed and gave us confidence that we were priced correctly. His knowledge of the building market and who our target buyers would be was helpful. We knew from the start that our sale could be a long process; during that time Brian kept us informed of all market activities. When we received the offer to purchase Brian guided us through the negotiations and paperwork in a very professional manner. We are extremely pleased with our relationship with Brian and would highly recommend him.
Larry and Marilyn G., Dexter
Working with Brian was truly a pleasure. He is extremely professional, and unlike some Realtors we have encountered, he is very conscientious as to how important an open line of communication is between himself and his clients. If a question ever arose, and Brian was not immediately available to answer it, he returned our phone call promptly and had the answer at hand. With Brian's help, the whole sales experience and closing process went smoothly, successfully, and with no surprises. We would not hesitate to work with Brian again in the future or to recommend him to anyone looking for a Realtor that they can trust.
Mark and Cheryl U., Northville
One of our favorite aspects of using Brian Hill as a realtor to sell our home was the way he took the time to explain all the steps and details of the selling process. His patient explanations coupled with the complete absence of any decision making pressure kept us feeling confident that we were making informed decisions throughout the entire process.
Nathan and Sonja B., Ann Arbor
I am delighted to have been able to work with Brian on selling my daughter’s Ann Arbor condominium. Because she had moved to Washington D.C., I took charge of completing the sale, even though I did not live in the area. Brian guided me every step of the way and as the result of his insights and expertise, the unit sold for our full asking price within two weeks of going on the market. I would highly recommend Brian as a Realtor to work with – he gets the job done.
Dr. Pamela and Megan S., Williamston MI
As first time Sellers, Brian’s calm, clear communication style meant that by the end of our first meeting with him we felt we fully understood the process that lay before us and we had full confidence we had found the right Realtor.
Brian described comprehensive, clear and realistic goals for both the time it would take to sell and the potential sale price we could achieve, and at the end of the day he was right on the money and we achieved our goal price. If we were to rate Brian it would be 5 gold stars! I have recommended him without hesitation to several friends that may be selling in the coming year.
Simon L. and Jason G., Ann Arbor
We have been involved in many real estate transactions over the past 20 years. You are not only the best Realtor we have ever worked with – with number 2 not even in the same league – you set an example for any professional to strive for. If I were to describe the ideal Realtor, Brian Hill would surpass that description.
Dr. Nathan K., M.D., and Cindy K., NJ
Working with Brian was a great experience. It was our first time selling a home and Brian helped us understand and navigate all the steps of the process. Brian was very knowledgeable about the area and other similar properties. We really felt that Brian was “on our side,” giving us honest advice on how to prepare and market our home to get the best value.
Shari H. and Andrew N., Ann Arbor
Brian provided excellent advice through every step of the process of selling our previous home and buying a new one. In the hectic spring market, his advice helped us not to make rash decisions we later would have regretted. He was always incredibly patient with us. When all was said and done, we couldn’t be happier with the result, which was largely due to Brian’s guidance and persistence in his dedication to helping us find the home that was right for us.
Alex B. and Elizabeth H., M.D., Ann Arbor
Brian was very helpful with the sale of our condo. He is very knowledgeable and professional, and made us feel at ease with the selling process. He treated us like family and was always available and willing to answer any questions we had. Brian was upfront and honest, helped us sell our condo quickly and obtain a competitive sale price for it, and we couldn’t thank him more. Brian was great! We recommend him to everyone and would hire him again in a heartbeat!
Matthew and Kristie H., Ann Arbor
It was an absolute pleasure to meet and work with Brian Hill on the sale of our Parent’s home. We had encountered two negative sales situations/experiences with a different agent prior to beginning work with Brian. Working with him was such a contrast.
I truly appreciated his positive approach and the quality and level of communication he consistently provided to all of us throughout the listing and selling process. Brian brought the epitome of professionalism to the experience. My great thanks go out to him for being our Realtor.
Mark and Janet U., Mason
Our experience working with Brian was a very positive and educational one. He returned calls and emails promptly, and always had time to listen to questions and respond in a very professional and compassionate way, always keeping our goals ( for both the sale of one home and purchase of another ) the main focus. It was a pleasure working with Brian and we will highly recommend him to any of our friends who may be in the market to buy or sell a home.
Dr. Kristoffer, M.D., and Sarah S., Dexter
Brian Hill was actively engaged with us during the listing, showing and sale of our Dexter home. He is very knowledgeable, kept in touch and kept us up to date, and was willing to go above and beyond what would have been expected; - such as stopping by the home periodically to check on it when it was vacant, sending a reminder at tax time about possible tax implications of our home sale, etc. We are very pleased with the entire process of selling our home with Brian as our Realtor. We highly recommend him.
Dr. Andrew, M.D., and Christina L., Saginaw
Having the experience of purchasing three homes in three different states, I know there are always many Realtors to choose from. I initially chose Brian Hill based on his impressive history of selling homes at a price that met the Seller’s expectations, along with achieving relatively quick sale time. I am so glad I worked with him because he always put my interests first.
His deep experience with my specific Ann Arbor condo development such as legal issues, return on investment and current real estate trends are what made the process go so smoothly. He always made time for me and quickly replied to all my questions with research and data, which made me feel I was a valuable client. I appreciated his honesty when I first contacted him; he recommended renting the home during the financial downturn and then selling it when the market improved. Not all Realtors are that honest. I am so grateful for his expertise and for putting my interests first; I sold at the right time and made a great return. I highly recommend him!
Mary J., Portland, OR
Brian Hill gave me a lot of practical tips on how to get my home ready to sell at the best price. He helped me anticipate and prepare for the confusing situations that can often occur when selling a home, and he encouraged me and helped me stay calm during the whole process. I highly recommend Brian to anyone preparing to sell their home.
Patricia L., Ann Arbor
I had to sell my Mom’s house “long distance” which was a pretty big stressor for me. Brian Hill was wonderful in alleviating that stress with his calm professional manner and creative marketing ideas; - resulting in a completed sales contract in just a few weeks. He communicated with prompt emails and phone calls and answered all my questions and concerns. It was wonderful to be able to sign and validate all the paperwork electronically, which Brian made very easy for me. I would definitely recommend Brian Hill to anyone interested in selling property in the Ann Arbor area, and would hire him again if the opportunity arose.
Martha R., Chicago IL
What was great about working with Brian was how comfortable he made us feel with the home selling process. He explained everything in a way that was easy for us to understand. I would recommend Brian to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!
Omar and Cecelia C., Ann Arbor
My wife and I received wonderful representation from Brian Hill. Even before we committed to working with him, he visited our home and spent time talking with us about its sale potential and how best to position it once we decided to put it on the market, regardless of whom we chose as our Realtor. Of course, we chose to work with him.
Our home sold within a couple of months, after we had received several offers. Most important to my wife and I was the time and care that Brian took in answering our questions and explaining the details of the process. We’d worked with Realtors before who spoke so quickly we hardly knew which questions to ask. Not so with Brian. He spent as much time as we needed – and was always willing to spend more. I would recommend him to anyone looking to sell their home.
David and Alejandra W., Ann Arbor
Mr. Brian Hill is a very special Realtor! My Wife Katalin and I were looking to sell our Whitmore Lake home. We had interviewed a few Realtors. After the first meeting with Mr. Hill, I had a good feeling about Brian’s work style. Brian has an excellent way of explaining the home selling process. At each step along the way, Brian explained to us all the options available so we were able to decide on the best path to achieve the sale of our home. If you are looking for a true professional Realtor, then select Mr. Brian Hill.
Wayne and Katalin M., Brighton
We were very happy with Brian’s attitude and willingness to discuss any selling options we felt we needed to explore. He listened and understood our needs from the beginning and was a great help dealing with a very difficult situation after my sister’s passing. He proved very knowledgeable when it came to the unique needs of selling real estate in order to settle an estate, which we learned can be a complicated business.
Brian Hill always provided timely feedback after showings and offered much insight into how we should view the comments we received from potential Buyers and offered us good advice on how to proceed. He was always pleasant and very easy to work with. Brian proved to be an invaluable asset in the successful selling of the home. We thank him very, very much!
David and Laurie M., Gaines MI
Thanks for helping us navigate a complicated selling process. We received several offers that differed considerably and your explanations of the pros and cons of each of the offers - and your suggestions for structuring counter-offers – helped us reach a very good contract and conclusion to our sale.
Tom W., Hollywood FL
We have utilized Brian’s expertise in both the selling and buying of our homes in the past year. We feel that he really listened to us and had a lot of patience with us so we never felt pressured to make hasty decisions. His knowledge and professionalism led us to two successful experiences. We will highly recommend Brian, and if the need arises we will definitely be calling him again ourselves!
Mike and Kim P., Brighton, MI
Through his mailings describing sales activity in my area, I learned Brian had detailed, up-to-date knowledge of the market conditions in Dexter. My wife and I found Brian Hill engaging and pleasant, and in explaining the paperwork necessary to sell our home he was thorough and made the material easy to understand. Throughout the sale process, Brian was more than helpful; he provided lists of recommended contractors who could take care of things that needed to be done in the way of repairs and polishing up our home before showing and saw to it that someone was at the house during any work if I couldn't be there.
He kept me advised of feedback from the many showings so we could deal with anything unexpected that was noticed. Once we accepted an offer on our home, Brian was helpful before the closing date by advising me of all the details and all the dollar-numbers that would be on the closing statement and he was present with us at the closing. The entire process was made easy for me. It was a pleasure to have Brian Hill as our realtor.
