ABOUT JEFF BRIER

Jeff Brier 

Jeff Brier (Pronounced Brier), Prior to moving to DC in 1982, Jeff's jobs had all been sales and management-oriented.  Little did Jeff know that these jobs were leading him towards a successful and lucrative career he would love and cultivate for many years. 

It was a tough market in 1982. Rates and points were through the roof and the economy was all gloom and doom.  He persevered and had a stellar first year.  In his own words "I knew if I learned about real estate and was successful under those conditions I would be a very good agent and successful in my profession come what may." 

Jeff's business grew steadily and in 1995, his then friend Martin Toews and he decided to join forces and the business partnership of Martin and Jeff began. 

Jeff's client-centered approach combined with years of real estate experience has made him one of the top producing and recognized real estate agents in our nation’s capital.  Jeff is proud to include as clients: many international, national and local business executives, high ranking government officials including members of congress, embassies, World Bank executives and university presidents.

Jeff specializes in the sale and resale of historic and single family homes, condominiums, cooperatives and multi-unit buildings. Since 1985, with career sales of more than $750 million in sales volume.

Selling your home

Coldwell Banker has invested more resources than any other real estate company to be able to market your property on a worldwide platform. This is so very important in today’s market since we find a very high percentage of buyers come from the internet. The two other significant sources for us are personal referrals and repeat past client contacts.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Often times buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. We will make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
