Todd helped me buy and sell a home. He was easy to work with and had every piece of information that I could have wanted. I will continue to recommend Todd to my friends and family.
J. & D. Anderson
Todd did an outstanding job helping us in our first home purchase. His honest comments were well received in contradistinction to the sales pitches by other agents. Will gladly recommend to others.
C. Chen and P. Wang
My husband and I have bought and sold several times, the most recent transactions handled by Todd. He is by far the best agent we've ever hired. If we could time travel, we'd definitely seek Todd's help exclusively and be happily ever after. He is extremely attentive and responsive throughout the entire process, communicating about every detail we are concerned with. His professionalism and integrity make us feel confident about our decisions. The peace of mind knowing we are in good hands is so precious in today's crazy market.

Todd helped us buy a home in a very competitive market. He listened carefully to our wish list and respected our budget. He was always eager and willing to show us homes the same day they came on the market. Todd gave us sound advice about the homes we looked at and always ran comps on other houses in the neighborhood. We really felt like he was honest with us and was looking out for our best interest. He never hesitated to put an offer on a house we were interested in and kept up our morale when we were outbid. We highly recommend Todd to anyone looking to buy and/or sell a home.
A. & T. Cordova
Todd was exceptional at taking care of the sale of our home. We had moved out of state and we were able to count on Todd giving us weekly updates along with any issues that arose. We knew without a doubt we would hear from him weekly. There was no need to contact him. His communication with us as clients was spot on. Todd was able to advise and negotiate above and beyond for us. He is a true "Master" in his field. You would be wise to choose him as your real estate professional. We highly recommend him.
M. Piehler & B. Myers
Todd could not have been more thorough when it came to providing us what we needed to find what we were looking for. Our process was a long one and he was incredibly accommodating when it came to working both within the pretty tight parameters of our desires and setting up opportunities to see properties that fit those parameters. His responsiveness, market knowledge, and thoughtful advice not only got us what we had hoped for but kept us from settling for something that we may not have been happy with in the long run. We cannot recommend Todd more highly. Thank You Todd.
Todd helped me to buy a home in Bothell. The procedure was very professional, quick and easy. He always was helpful, friendly, accurate and paid attention to all my requests.
B. & C. Mathew
Todd helped us to buy our home in Issaquah, WA. If you need an agent who is knowledgeable, honest and has your best interest at heart, Todd is your man. Todd provided us with sound advice and guidance during the buying process, we got the house at the price that we wanted and everything was completed in a timely manner. Todd is great at what he does, and we are grateful to have worked with him. We will highly recommend his services to anyone.

Over the past 14 years, Todd Brandt has served as my agent in the sale and purchase of three different homes and I recommend him enthusiastically--he is one of the finest professionals I have worked with in any business: Todd is highly competent, thorough, principled, and brings to the table an array of professional resources which augment the wealth of his own professional experience. With our most recent home purchase, Todd first helped us evaluate and compare our options for renting or selling our existing home and provided an excellent recommendation for a rental management company. On the property we eventually purchased, Todd conducted an extensive examination of the title history, and in the process, identified a potential deal breaker. He reviewed plot maps, visited the Health District Office for additional records, and ultimately arranged legal advice with a real estate attorney at no cost to our family. Todd also conducted market analysis for the surrounding area and helped us with price negotiations. And when we signed, we were confident that we were getting into the right house and buying at the right price. Todd provides terrific customer service with rock solid integrity. And he has proven to be a dedicated advocate throughout the home buying and home selling process
