Recommendations Shared by Past & Present Clients:
"Bradley helped us buy our house in Montclair—and we simply couldn't have done it without him. We were on a very tight timetable and he managed to find us a house that we really loved and had everything we needed, at a good price. Moreover, as we were moving in from Europe, Bradley went to great lengths to make the whole process as smooth and easy as possible for us. Every step along the way, he provided calm guidance and clear advice. We highly recommend Bradley for his expertise, his commitment, and his warm and fun personality." Steve"Brad helped us sell our home and eventually buy a new home, both in Montclair. Brad has attention to detail, passion for his work, and a willingness to go the extra mile. He maximized the return we got on our house with advice on prepping the house, listing/showing strategy, staging, and much more. And when it came time to buy, he was a true partner. Brad also has connections all around Montclair and if you need to do any work to your property, he has a docket of folks to recommend. Brad is the best and we highly recommend him." Tyler"We worked with Bradley on both the sale of our Montclair home and the purchase of our (downsized) Bloomfield home—and are so grateful to him for both transactions, where we scored big on both ends. Bradley gave us advice for at least two years prior to putting our house on the market. He told us what we had to do to make it ready to show—what was important to spend on, and what wasn't. In addition, he had lots of local resources at his fingertips. His recommendations all did great work at competitive prices. He advised us on market timing, which ended up being critically important, too. And he was available at any time of day or night to help. From the cosmetic work to the construction work to the staging and legal work, all of Bradley's advice was invaluable. We are forever grateful to him for helping guide us through the very stressful process in such a calm and cool manner. And he helped us secure a lovely smaller house (also within a very competitive market) without being the top bidder. We can’t recommend him highly enough." Laura"Aside from being the nicest person my wife and I have ever met, Bradley Horner is far and away an expert in all things real estate in the Montclair area. As first-time home buyers, Bradley walked us through all steps of the search, mortgage, and closing processes—and made the entire ordeal manageable and digestible. Bradley was our advocate during our search and aggressively pursued properties that we were interested in. He made himself available for multiple viewings and made sure that we were as informed as possible when we submitted offers. I would recommend Bradley to anyone looking for a house in the Montclair area. He knows the houses, he knows the people, and he keeps everyone on schedule and on task. He is the person you want spearheading the search for your next home!" Michael"We were so lucky to have Brad in our corner for the sale of our home. He started with us two years before we decided to sell—when we were just thinking about it. He worked with us, tolerated my anxiety over the process, and was incredibly knowledgeable and supportive. It is no coincidence to me that we sold our house in one day with multiple offers. When we were getting the house ready, Brad even helped me pick paint colors for the outside of our house and he staged the house completely. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Friends of mine who witnessed the process are going to use Brad when they sell their house next year. I can't imagine having gone through this with anyone else." Marcia"Bradley Horner sold my house in Montclair and was my agent in buying a house in an adjacent town. He is creative, brilliant, on top of things, and beside all of that, he is a delightful man. I recommend him highly. He is so knowledgeable about the area and is brilliant at staging. He also will keep you calm and is an excellent resource in finding reasonable and skilled contractors. Using him will be one of the best decisions you have ever made." Sally"My wife and I had a wonderful experience working with Bradley on the purchase of our second home in Montclair, NJ. Bradley is a Montclair resident and knows the various neighborhoods well. Those that have experience purchasing in Montclair know that it is a very competitive market. It is not uncommon to have multiple bids on one residence. In this environment, one has to have a certain level of patience as well as tenacity. Bradley informed us of this and prepared us well for this atmosphere. He constantly gave us reassurance and stood by our side throughout the process and afterward too. He was available at all times of the day (and night) to answer questions that we had. I along with my wife were honored to have Bradley represent us and we look forward to working with him again in the future." Johnny"Working with Bradley over the past three years has been a total joy. My husband and I worked with Bradley first to rent a home in Montclair and then a couple of years later, we reached out to Bradley again when we were looking to purchase. With both experiences, Bradley was a pleasure to work with. He's extremely knowledgeable of Montclair; he has great ideas on the various ways to increase the value of your home; he returns every single email, phone, and text no matter where he is in the world; and most importantly, he's not a pushy or overbearing realtor. He lays the facts out and then gives you the breathing space to make the best decision for your family." Kai"We worked with Bradley to help us purchase our first home in Upper Montclair, NJ. As first-time home-buyers, we were very unaware of the process and somewhat skeptical of the outcome. However, Bradley was a true professional and helped us overcome any knowledge gaps and concerns. He was very patient and empathetic throughout the process and I knew he truly had our best interests in mind. He was very straightforward yet kind when it came to offering his opinion on whether or not we should bid on a property and I appreciated his candor. I would use Bradley again and again and would recommend him to my closest family and friends." Elizabeth"We decided to sell our house after we had already relocated out of state. We wanted to make sure we had someone on our side even though we were far away and Bradley really kept us in the loop with what was going on with the house and we found his insight into the market invaluable. He was able to advise us on what to expect and we got multiple offers on the property before finally accepting an offer for full asking price. Bradley was great—very easy to work with and really knowledgeable. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great realtor in the area. If we ever decide to buy again, he would be our first call!" Jenn
