Client Success Stories

“Brad Brinkman and Dave Criddle at the Beach Seller were spectacular. They were easily the best real estate agents we’ve ever had, and we’ve had many. We will definitely use them for any future purchases or sales, and we highly recommend them without hesitation.

Despite the sales challenges we faced, Brad and Dave persisted in their efforts with gusto — they NEVER THROTTLED BACK at any point during the entire process. Ultimately, we received multiple offers and sold the property to the perfect buyer for above our asking price. The transaction itself went through without a hitch, it was fast and painless.”
