Justin Ramirez

Briana is very responsive to my needs and request. She also has some great insights into what is trending in the market. I have bought and sold many properties with her and always recommend her to other clients when asked.

Ed Ramirez

Very knowledgeable and hard working. A credit to her profession. I have done business in San Antonio for 10 years and she is my first choice when I purchase or sell residential property in San Antonio.

Nancy DeBellis

Briana Sopala responded to a request for a quote on our home when we were thinking about putting it on the market. She did not drop us when she knew we were not selling quickly. She worked with us while remodeling and helped us make the best decisions on when to put the house on the market and what upgrades would make us the most money. Listen to her…she is always right and remember it is not what you like, but what the buyers want. The weekend we put our home on the market she got us 40 showings and 4 offers. Your Rock Brianna! She got us more money then we expected and was very responsive to any questions we had along the way (which was a lot). I would highly recommend Brianna Sopala as a Realtor and will use her again if ever looking for another home in her area.

Sam Cardenas

Patricia Britton

I really enjoyed working with Briana – she was professional and very responsive to issues as they arose. The transaction moved quickly and both sides met their objectives in a very congenial atmosphere.

Catherine Lovestad

Brianna was very professional and had a lot of patience with us during our search for a second home in Henderson. She listened to our request and made sure she was available when we were in town, with a list of properties meeting our criteria. She made the process easy and answered all our questions and concerns, she also made sure we were well informed before our purchase. We hope to work with Briana again in the future.

Beth Yamashiro

Briana was great! She was always very professional and very responsive to my needs. Though I wasn’t buying an expensive house she gave me the attention and service as if I was. I went through a few real estate agents because they just didn’t take me seriously. Briana was different. She’s extremely knowledgeable about the industry, she’s honest, friendly, and always available. She also knows a lot about homes and how to fix them, so she not only helped me see the potential in my home, she even helped give me tips on how to fix the things that were wrong so I could get the most for my dollar. I highly recommend her.

“Briana was a paragon of patience, especially considering we didn’t seem to always know what we wanted. The proof of her abilities is how much we’re enjoying our new home. It was a great pleasure working with Briana.”

Douglas and Eva Chinn

My husband and I have enjoyed working with Briana as she is able to quickly ascertain and understand our needs, therefore eliminating time wasted looking at properties that were of no interest to us.  As we are not local, we picked properties to view from the internet and she pre-screened them for us, as well as locating others.   She would go see the properties to check their condition, and take photographs, and then email them for us to peruse, and decide which ones that we wanted to visit.  She always easy to reach, via phone, email or smart  phone.  Through her system with electric signatures, we were able to make bids on houses through our email (when we are on vacation) without having to run to a fax machine. In fact, we are working with her again because we may be interested in more property.  She is very professional and we highly recommend her.

Beth Yamishiro and PG Schrader

I was a first time homebuyer.  I didn’t know anything other than what I found online about buying a home.  I really did my research when it came to scoping out properties and Briana was the first to surprise me with her insight and knowledge of the real-estate market.

Briana knows her neighborhoods, property values and people. She was even able to help me figure out what I needed and wanted even when I didn’t really know myself.  My budget was small, but she gave me the time, energy and attention as though I were buying a multi-million dollar property.  She really knows her stuff and she’s an A-class professional.  She’s amazingly hard working and dependable and I couldn’t have asked for a better real estate agent.  It was a great experience and though I closed a long time ago we are still close to this day.  Whether you’re buying, selling or renting, I highly recommend Briana’s services.

From the first time I spoke with Briana on the phone I knew I was dealing with a professional.

Instead of the “buy now before the house gets taken!” nonsense you get from most agents, she was ready to give me an honest assessment of the market I was looking into. The house I purchased was a foreclosure, and she walked me through the pros and cons of purchasing a short sale vs a foreclosure before we even sat down at her desk and searched for properties. Her extensive knowledge and personable demeanor immediately put me at ease, allowing me to make an informed and relaxed decision about things such as: how much my initial offer would be, how much my monthly expenses would be after the purchase(stuff like HOA, insurance, and warranties), and how much money I would need to get the house livable(she knew a lot about landscaping and kitchen upgrade costs, very useful). Although I was a first time homebuyer, Briana was not the first agent I dealt with, and I can tell you, agents are not all the same!

One thing I really appreciated about Briana was that she had an office. I could call or stop by anytime I wanted, and even if she wasn’t there, her secretary could take any forms I needed to drop off and always knew what was going on. If you’re like me, nothing is more annoying than trying to talk to a secretary that is clueless about her boss’s whereabouts and dealings. The previous agent I worked with did not even have a secretary and had been working out of her car. And besides being difficult to reach, I had to fax her all the forms from a local Kinko’s. I mean, who owns a fax machine anymore?

Another thing I liked about Briana was that when we were looking at properties, I always felt like she was thinking what I was thinking. For example, one of the properties we looked at early on was one of those “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” houses, as in, the only thing going for it was its curb appeal. Rather than insult my intelligence by exaggerating the few positives within, she simply said with a smile, “It’s okay if you hate it. You won’t hurt my feelings.” We had a good laugh about the smell and moved on to the next house.

Having Briana help me find a house was like having one of my friends help me. Briana was there for me before, during, and long after the sale of the house, and being the son of a developer I can tell you that it is very rare to find such sincerity among brokers, agents, and realtors these days.
