“I am not sure where to begin. Brianne was exceptional in every way. She seemed to genuinely care about my purchase. I never felt rushed or pressured to make a decision. It was almost like she was looking for a home too. I will definitely refer anyone I know that is in the market to purchase a home to Brianne Drake.”

– Reggie Jack
“From start to finish, Brianne Drake guided my wife and me through the selling of our home. She gave us the hard facts about making our home stand out against other homes at the same price point. She helped us set a price point that was right for us and the eventual buyers of our home. She always carried herself in a professional manner and made sure we did not stress over issues we could not control. From listing our home to closing, she was always there for us, and she kept us upbeat and stress-free. From the day of listing our home, we had four showings and two offers in two days. She even helped us contact an agent in Asheville, North Carolina, to facilitate the purchase of our new home there. Brianne was always with us. She is the complete REALTOR®!! Thank you again, Brianne.”

– Kizzie
“Brianne Drake, thank you very much for a job well done. You were with us from the beginning until closing. You kept us abreast throughout the process. You were indeed helpful at all times. Your performance was stellar, and you are a professional in every way. I will definitely recommend you as a real estate agent. It's been a pleasure working with you.”

– Gibson
“I purchased my first home in 2008, and Brianne was my REALTOR®. I chose her because she came highly recommended, and she had fantastic online reviews. I was a first-time homebuyer and was relatively "green" to the process. Brianne was a godsend. She took me to countless homes, and she was always patient with me. She advised me, and advocated for me fiercely when it was time to make a purchase. My experience with Brianne was so amazing that I referred her to five friends who also chose her as their REALTOR®. All of them became homebuyers thanks to her. When my husband and I decided to sell our first home and make another purchase, we did not hesitate to reach out to Brianne. Ten years later, she had not changed. She continued to be knowledgeable, professional, caring and a fierce advocate for her clients. We recently moved into our "forever home," and we literally could not have done it without her. My parents are retiring and moving to the area soon, and they too will use her services. If you are looking for a REALTOR® who will be honest with you, compassionate, professional and diligent in all of her efforts, then look no further. She is the one!”

– Rasheeda Tolbert
“Brianne provided exceptional services! Throughout our home buying process, her level of responsiveness, around-the-clock due diligence and market knowledge were greatly appreciated. With her help, we were able to find and close on our home within a five-week time constraint! If we could give her a higher star rating, we would! We look forward to working with Brianne again if we ever decide to leave our beautiful new home.”

– Ingrams
“My star rating speaks for itself. Brianne truly was a blessing to our family when it came down to getting our home sold. She kept in contact with us throughout the entire process and didn't leave us unsure of anything like previous agents we have had. We are a military family, so not being in the same state as our home that we needed to sell was very hard. I highly recommend her, and when my husband has reached retirements in the military and we head back to our home state of Georgia, Brianne will be the only person we contact to purchase a new forever home. Thank you, Brianne, for your hard work and dedication!”

– Satisfied Client
“Brianne Drake is the agent who represented me in purchasing my current home. I take my hat off to her because it took two and a half years to find the perfect ranch house that I dreamed of. Brianne never lost patience or acted in any capacity other than the highly competent and excellent agent that she is. She was always truthful (even if it hurt) and never discouraged me from settling on a home with which I was not completely happy. Last year, I contacted Brianne to act as my agent in selling the home I had owned since 1976. Brianne gave me advice on what remodeling updates would best enhance the property and help sell. She put me in contact with a contractor who did an outstanding job, checked the stats for my area and helped me list for a realistic price. Because of Brianne's expertise, my home listed, sold and closed within three and a half weeks. I have and will continue to recommend Brianne Drake to anyone buying or selling a home. She is the best of the best.”

“Brianne, thanks so much for your assistance. Brianne ensured that we had a smooth and pleasant experience selling our lovely McDonough home. We're so pleased that we had the presence of mind to keep the postcard you distributed in our neighborhood the previous year and that we contacted you when we were looking for someone to represent us. From the start of our interviews, it was clear that you were the best REALTOR® for us. We were impressed with your professionalism that meshed so well with your genuinely warm personality. Your attention to our primary and even to our rather unusual requests was appreciated and helped the process progress. The advice you gave and were willing to give, even when it was not what we initially wanted to hear, was priceless because you were honest with us from the start about the state of the housing market, and you told us the differences in practices and procedures between California and Georgia. We thank God for you, and we are so grateful that the entire process went so fast. As you know, we had to change travel plans because the house sold faster than expected. Unquestionably we will refer others to you.”

– Perkins
“I found Brianne to be very savvy, patient and extremely professional during our four-month home buying process. She was always timely for appointments and provided honest feedback. Brianne kept us informed all the way. The contract and amendment(s) processes were always above board and transparent. I was very impressed with her negotiating ability. She assisted us in getting the prospective sellers to address, and correct areas of concern for us after the home inspection was completed. Brianne knows the can, should and cannot do's during the home buying process. I would highly recommend Brianne as your REALTOR®. She DEFINITELY knows what she is doing. I might add I was very picky and particular during the looking process; however, Brianne was very patient and understanding throughout the entire process. Once we found a house, we closed 30 days after our offer was accepted. If you want peace of mind by having a REALTOR® who knows the process and guidelines, I suggest you talk with Brianne Drake first.”

– Fannie McKenzie
Ms. Brianne Drake is truly a high-caliber professional. Her knowledge of the local market and negotiating skills are impeccable. I started my home buying process while deployed overseas in Afghanistan and needed someone I could really depend on. Working with Brianne was a pleasure; she kept me informed every step of the way, from searching listings to making an offer. Brianne was always available to take my calls and responded to all my e-mails in a timely matter. Any questions that I had were answered to my satisfaction, and she went above and beyond without hesitation by providing photographs and videos for properties I had an interest in. Brianne, I can't thank you enough for the time and dedication you gave me during my home buying process, and I will always be grateful for your support. Ms. Drake delivers results from the beginning to the end, and for that reason, I would definitely recommend her to anyone in the future.”

– Dockery
“Brianne is a very professional and caring person. She is accurate and precise with the information that she provides you about the sale or purchase of your home. She is very patient because she knows that buying a home is very important. We have referred her to several people, and they all have been very pleased with her service. She treats you as if you were family, which makes you feel comfortable asking any questions or having any concerns. One of her most important assets is that you can always reach her, and she will always call you back. I would highly recommend her as an agent!”

– Satisfied Customer
“I enjoyed working with Brianne when I was looking for my new home. She was not pushy and listened to what I wanted, not what she wanted for me. I highly recommend her services to anyone who is in the market for buying a home.”

– Satisfied Customer
“We first came into contact with Brianne because she was the listing agent on a home we were interested in buying on a short sale. She was professional from the first meeting to closing. She was able to overcome several major hurdles in order to make our purchase happen. I would consider her an expert in wading through the banks' bureaucracy to make something happen quickly. We were so impressed with Brianne that we listed our previous house with her as a short sale, and she was able to facilitate a sale within just a few months. We have since referred Brianne to several friends who have all experienced the same level of service and expertise that few real estate agents possess.”

– Brown Family
“Brianne Drake is a wonderful REALTOR®. I would recommend any home buyer to work with her, especially first-time home buyers. She worked with me for several months before we found my dream home. It was a home that she picked out to show me. It had everything that I wanted in a home. Which means she was listening and reading all of the hundreds of e-mails I sent to her. She never told me that we wouldn't find it. She took her time and educated me on the ins and outs of making a home purchase. When I would get upset, she would always be that kind voice telling me that it was out there, and we would find it. She never once made me feel like I just needed to settle on a home. She actually encouraged me to slow down and make the best home purchase for my needs. She was instrumental in helping me get to closing. When the banking agents weren't returning my calls and advising me on the next steps, she was right there advocating on my behalf. My closing was not definite and changed. I closed on her birthday which she had previously taken time off to vacation. Within 24 hours, she changed her travel plans to be there with me. After my home purchase, I thought Brianne's job was over, and I would never hear from her again. To my surprise, she continued to stay in contact with me, reminding me of very important things that I needed to do as a new homeowner. Brianne Drake is more than just an ordinary REALTOR®. She is an advocate that works for her client. She is interested in more than just a sale. She really wants her client to have their dream home.”

– Rotronda Williams
“Brianne is truly an adept REALTOR®. I was in a precarious situation and needed to quickly sell my house. Brianne provided me with sage advice and immediately began working on getting my house sold. I was very happy with my experience with her, and I have and will continue to recommend her to my friends and family. She is the BEST that I have ever seen.”

– C. Williams
“We bought a house recently with Brianne's help. She walked my wife and me through the process as patiently and intelligently as anyone could. We consider ourselves "picky" buyers who were in the market for the "perfect" house, and Brianne did not stop her diligent work until we were 110% satisfied! She took care of it all, from the house hunting to the negotiations. I promise you; you will not find a better agent in the Atlanta area.”

– Phillips
“Brianne Drake should be rated on a scale of "10". She is EXCELLENT. From my first meeting to the end of my sale (closing), she was very knowledgeable, warm and understanding through the process. I will definitely recommend Brianne to friends, relatives and co-workers who might be thinking about purchasing a home. In the future, whenever or wherever I decide to purchase another property, I will seek Brianne out for assistance and service. It has been and was a pleasure working with Brianne Drake. Brianne continues to be the BEST agent you are! I'll never forget your motivation and help!”

– Audrey Zellars
“We've worked with several agents; however, none compare to Brianne. She sold our home in a reasonable time and sold us our current home. Thanks for your hard work and dedication to our family! We will never use another agent.”

– Satisfied Buyer and Seller
“I'm very proud of Brianne. She's very knowledgeable about real estate. Brianne has made my transition to move into my first home very comfortable. I would and will recommend Brianne to anyone I know that's interested in purchasing a home or any other property! I give thanks to God for sending Brianne to me. Thank you very much. Keep up the great work, Brianne!”

– Alfonza
“I couldn't have asked for a better agent! Brianne is an angel, and I appreciate her hard work, dedication and strong passion for her job. I can't explain enough how grateful I am for her help. Thank you, Brianne, and God Bless you!”

– Jarian
“Overall, I'm 100% satisfied with Brianne Drake. She is an excellent agent and friendly with my family and me. She made me and my family feel like she was a friend, and after the sale was done and signed, she still called to verify how we were doing in the home. Thanks, Brianne.”

– Silvia Grace
“Brianne Drake is an excellent salesperson, and she is very knowledgeable about real estate. We have referred her to other family members and friends because of her expertise. Ms. Drake was a pleasure to work with, selling and buying our homes. She made the process easy, and I would definitely refer her to anyone interested in purchasing a home.”

– Jacinta Montgomery

– Tammy Cox
“My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Brianna on closing our new home last year. She was referred to us by a friend, and we have no regrets. She is professional, courteous, friendly, efficient and she most definitely is a voice for her clients.”

– Hodges
“I was blessed to have Brianne as my agent to assist me in selling my vacation home in Georgia. She is very knowledgeable in all areas, including experiencing extreme financial difficulty and possibly doing a short sale. She focuses and brings out the imperative features in your home and gives suggestions to improve the curb appeal of your home to attract not only buyers but also the right buyer who will possibly offer you more than what your home was priced on the market. I thought it was going to be a headache and hard working with an agent while living in another state, but Brianne kept in constant contact with me, updating me on every stage of the short sale process. She's compassionate, hardworking, caring, courteous, will fight what's right and will not allow any of her clients to be taken advantage of. Within the first day of putting my home on the market, she was able to attract some buyers. She didn't allow me to be lowballed on my offer and has superior negotiating skills. I took her advice and waited about three weeks, and we attracted the right buyer that offered me the full price of my home. We experienced a fight and tough times dealing with a bank and a broker approving my short sale, so we had to get approvals from both companies because of this issue. We didn't have any problems with the bank, but the broker was a nightmare in which Brianne dealt with them diligently and consistently, not backing down, but fighting for me. She renegotiated with my buyer and was able to get my buyer to offer me $15,000 more than what my house was on the market for. I was told some wrong information from the broker that I didn't qualify for a special program from Fannie Mae that would have assisted me in keeping my beautiful vacation home, even though I was experiencing a financial and medical crisis not able to walk on my own without assistance and making $30,000 less in income. I had lost three important people in my life at the same time to cancer, and Brianne made the process so easy and stress-free for me and kept fighting for approval from the broker. Needless to say, not only did the broker tell me I didn't qualify for the Fannie Mae program, but the person handling my short sale there was unprofessional, discourteous and kept giving me wrong information when I asked. Brianne remained professional and courteous even though this person and her supervisor were unprofessional. She drew the line when they started to not return her numerous calls and e-mails to update us on the status of my short sale and to inquire if there was any other additional information or documents they needed from me, but to no avail, the case manager never returned her numerous calls and e-mails. Even when she contacted the person's supervisor to inform them of this, the case manager handling my file still didn't return any of her calls or e-mails. She stands for what is right and is far more than your average REALTOR®. She investigated and probed a state representative's office for help since I was being dealt with so unfairly and given the wrong information regarding programs. She found out I did qualify when she made a phone call to Fannie Mae. She made formal complaints on my behalf to a state representative and to Fannie Mae on my behalf which in turn I followed up with formal complaints as well in order to stop my foreclosure date since it was vastly approaching and we still had an offer for $15,000 above the market price of my home. Even after she dealt with the broker for six months, they still refused to decide on my short sale approval to proceed with the sale of my home. Unfortunately, to no fault of Brianne's, the broker waited to deny my short sale hours before my foreclosure date without any reason. When Brianne asked if the reason was that they came up with a specific price for the home in order to approve it and to no avail, the supervisor refused to give an answer and was again discourteous and rude to her for no reason. She explained that if that was the problem, the buyer really wanted my home and had expressed that he was willing to offer more to get them to approve this short sale because he wanted the home. After some investigation, I found out that all my buyer had to come up with was less than $1,000 more for the broker to approve it. If you're looking for an agent that has your best interest at heart, is a fighter, excellent negotiator, courteous, compassionate, honest, able to attract serious buyers and someone that's excellent with documentation, has excellent negotiating skills and keeps in constant contact with you, then Brianne Drake is the best way to go. She is an asset to her community and that's the type of agent you need to sell your home. I give her my highest recommendation. It was certainly a pleasure working with her, and I plan to use her as my agent in the future"
