Brian and his team are absolute professionals. They were very patient with helping me find my new place, never under any pressure. I truly appreciate that. Highly recommended.
Brian was great, he made everything virtually stress free with his recommendations, referrals and availability. I would retain his services again in a heartbeat if I was in the market or selling :)
Brian: Thank you very much for the excellent service. Helping to find a first home for our son and his girlfriend was difficult during these challenging times. Your efforts made the process much easier.
Brian is extremely patient and willing to go that extra mile for his clients. I had nothing but the best experience with Van Bart Real Estate. Highly recommend him if you are looking for real estate in London.
Brian's strategy for the sale of the house worked so well it went on the market Friday and we accepted an offer the following Tuesday for an amount above the asking price. Just an overall very positive experience.
BOB & LINDA B.
Brian was a great Realtor and took his time to explain and walk me through buying my first home. He was thorough and thoughtful and never made me feel pressured. I would highly recommend working with Brian!

BILL C. & CATHY M.
Brian made looking for and buying our first home so easy! He always gave us helpful information on neighbourhoods etc. He knows his stuff and truly cares. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. Thank you so much Brian!!

RANA A. & AYESHA S.
We were very pleased with Brian Van Bart as our agent for selling mom’s house! He has an easy-going and informative nature. The property was unique and Brian helped to point out its unique advantages to the out-of-town buyer. I would certainly recommend Brian to anyone!

STEPHEN M. & DANIELLE D.
Brian was knowledgeable and helped me as a first time home-buyer. At every step of the way, he provided sound and realistic advice that guided me to my first home. I would personally recommend him to anyone that I know without a second thought. And I mean it, Brian has earned my trust!
Brian's service was great! He was very easy to work with and was there for us the whole time. This is our first time purchasing a home and he was so helpful with everything that we needed. He was always available to answer our questions and gave excellent advice. We would definitely work with Brian again!
TYLER & AMBER J.
Brian was an amazing person to work with in finding our new home.

He comes highly recommended and we would use him again in a heartbeat. Thanks again for everything Brian!
DUNCAN B. & KELLY G.
Brian Van Bart was the realtor that my family dealt with during our home search and he was able to secure a home that we as a whole absolutely love. He is very patient and understanding, and pays very close attention to key details. I would highly, highly recommend his services for anyone looking at Realtors and properties.
Brian's easy going manner, patience and knowledge made him the absolute perfect Realtor for our first time home buying experience. If needed, we would work with him again without giving it another thought. You will not be disappointed if you choose Brian to help you in your perfect home search journey. Thank you Brian!!
Brian Van Bart has been our first real estate agent and came to stay in our family forever. He has always delivered services beyond our expectations in a very professional and humane manner. I would strongly recommend him to anybody who would like to buy or sell a house in an almost headache-free environment.
DOLET N. & ODETTE I.
My wife and I used Brian Van Bart for our new home purchase and sale. He was immensely helpful and knowledgeable in guiding us through this process, including having a difficulty with the seller just hours before our close. Brokered a deal while on holidays and we always felt he was 100% involved in our sale/purchase!
LUKE & AMANDA H.
My husband and I bought our first home last year, and we couldn’t have asked for a better realtor! Brian was knowledgeable and kind, and made the first time home buying process so easy and stress free. He never pushed us to do anything we weren’t comfortable with doing, and explained everything to us every step of the way.
RYAN & ANGELA B.
I would just like to thank you again for the patience and understanding while you worked with me. It was a really long time I took to find my house and you never seemed to get discouraged with all of my requests to view houses. In the end I am extremely happy with what I purchased and you were a crucial part of it. Thanks again!
Brian helped us find our first home, right in the heart of Old East Village! He always provided thoughtful advice, was happy to answer our questions, and provided guidance when we weren't even sure what questions to ask. He took a genuine interest in helping us find the right home for us. Very responsive, trustworthy, and a pleasure to work with!
ZACH A. & KATIE S.
Brian helped me buy my first home and he made the process very easy! He was very honest, responsive, professional and handled purchasing during the pandemic very well - so much so, I recommended him to two friends of mine who also bought a house through him. Great experience all around, I would definitely recommend! Thanks Brian!
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Brian. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and friendly to work with. As a first time home buyer he made the experience fantastic and was able to offer guidance through the entire process. I would highly recommend Brian to those looking to buy or sell, it was a pleasure working with him. Thank you again Brian!
I would highly recommend Brian Van Bart Real Estate for selling or buying a house. He made the sale of my house seem seamless. It was a pleasure meeting Brian, very professional and informative on current value of houses. Gives great advice to make sales go smoothly and quickly, prices right for quick sale. His help was invaluable from start to finish.
Brian is wonderful to work with! As first time home buyers, he really put us at ease. He was very patient, honest and thorough answering all of our questions, not to mention the great insights and experience he has. Very professional and accommodating. We really appreciated how easy Brian made the whole process and can't thank him enough for all of his help!
DOMINIK & CAROLYN S.
Buying a first home is stressful and has been as such for us. However, we got a chance to meet Brian.He has been a part of our family because anytime we have visited the house he was with us and let us say the last word. He was available for us and took into account our desire and criteria for the house we were looking for. I dare say that Brian is trustworthy and professional.
HYACINTHE & BEATRICE A.
We contacted Brian by checking out the Internet listings for London. Our experience since then has been really first class. Brian had an ear to the ground on our behalf, was observant about our likes, wants and needs with the end result of what should be a perfect home for us. I would highly recommend him for any real estate needs and would definitely use his service again.
CHESTER & MARIA W.
In addition to selling our home this year, Brian sold both of our parents’ homes in the past year. Brian's educational background in business shows in the way that he developed marketing plans. We were always kept informed on a timely basis and in a professional manner. We would not hesitate to recommend Brian to someone looking to sell or purchase a home.
DAVE & BRENDA R.
After looking for some time for an agent that we felt confident with, my husband and I found Brian. He was absolutely amazing in helping us find the right home. He answered ALL our questions and made sure everything went smoothly and stress free (Yes it's possible to be stress free when buying a house with Brian). He did everything to help. Don't buy or sell a house without Brian.
JASON & BIANCA B.
I would 100% recommend Brian to anyone looking to buy or sell in the London area because you aren’t going to find a realtor with more knowledge and professionalism willing to go above and beyond to ensure you get the best possible outcome. Brian provided me with excellent guidance and advice, and made the process of buying my first home clear, straightforward, and as stress free as possible.
After living in the one house for 33 years, I thank Brian Van Bart for making the sale of the existing and purchase of a new home a wonderful experience. His knowledge, experience, professionalism were key in quick sales for both. Brian's good nature and patience kept anxiety low and excitement high. I definitely recommend Van Bart Real Estate to anyone looking to buy or sell!!
Brian's professional and calming manner helped us feel at ease immediately. He worked very hard at selling our house and is extremely skilled at marketing via the internet and uses an excellent stager and photographer. He is available via email or text and responds very quickly to any questions. Awesome job! We will be recommending him to all of our friends that need to sell or buy a home.
BILL C. & CATHY M.
We relocated to London from Brampton in late 2011. As newcomers to London we found Brian's knowledge of the city to be invaluable. He found us a house that we love in a wonderful neighbourhood and his advice during the negotiations helped us secure the house for a great price. Brian was thoroughly professional yet managed to provide that personal touch. We would not hesitate to recommend him.
GREG & JAN D.
Brian made buying our first home a breeze! He was helpful and there every step of the way to answer all of our questions throughout the process. He came highly recommended through both friends and our mortgage specialist and did not disappoint! He gave us the magic number to offer for our house (the first one we put an offer in on) and we got it by a hair! We would absolutely recommend Brian!
ROWAN I. & EMMA S.
Brian was amazing at helping us buy our first home. He was professional, responsive, and had great insights into the London housing market. We're from out of town and Brain helped walk us through which neighbourhood was right for us! We were incredibly impressed with both our new home and the service that Brian provided. We'd recommend him to anyone looking in the London region!
BRAYDEN G. & KENDRA T.
Brian was a great realtor to work with for my boyfriend and I as first time homebuyers! For us being new to the process, plus the stress of looking for the perfect house, he was so easy to work with. He was patient, willing and determined to help us find our first home with everything we were looking for and more than available for any questions or concerns we had. Don’t go to anyone else but Brian van Bart!
SCOTT & JACLYN R.
Dealing with Brian was a pleasure, and he showed great professionalism and communication skills. He helped us not only to buy a new house but also to sell our condo. Brian is very outspoken and has great marketing skills when it comes to advertising a property for sale. He also actively follows up potential buyers, not just waiting for someone to get back to him. Brian, thank you so much for your help and service.
ANDREW & MAGDA W.
Brian was such a blessing for us in our process, he made things easy and smooth. As newcomers we did not know much about the real estate market in Canada and Brian walked us through and explained everything. He understood our needs and helped us find our dream home. It's been almost a year now and we could not be more thankful. We totally recommend Brian to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a property!
JOSE U. & MANUELA A.
I used Brian searching for my first home, a new condo. I found that having his experience and knowledge was very helpful in navigating and alleviating the stress involved with such a large change in life. One thing that I was very appreciative of was that after seeing a handful of different places, Brian got a feel for the type of place I was looking for and would also suggest different listings to go view. Overall a very positive experience.
We recently purchased our home and could not have been happier working with Brian. We were making a long distance move and had a number of things we were looking for and Brian found us the perfect home! We were amazed with how knowledgeable Brian was when we were going through homes and knowing what to look for. We would highly recommend Brian to anyone searching for their next home and we will definitely work with him in the future!
CHRIS B. & ALYSIA D.
It was a pleasure to work with Brian. Given that this is my second time buying a house, I saw big differences between my last real estate agent and Brian. He was there for the home inspection and made the process easy for outlining what we needed to do next and recommending people that we needed to get in touch with such as real estate lawyers, home inspectors, etc. Very happy with the experience and would highly recommend him to anyone I know.
Worked with Brian on selling my home and purchasing a new one. He brings a level of professionalism that you rarely see anymore. Very fun and easy to get along with. In the end I was able to sell my home within days of listing and for way more than what we were expecting. Brian was able to find the perfect home for my family and I. My previous experiences have not been even close to this. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home!
MILAN T. & BRITTANY F.
We have been working with Brian for almost 10 years, he has helped us sell and purchase our 2 homes. He is personable, professional and goes the extra mile. His services offered and attention to detail are what made us keep coming back to his business. We trust Brian with every aspect of purchase/sales and have recommended him to family and friends over the years (they have all been incredibly happy with his work!). If we ever need to move again, he will definitely be our first call!
CHRIS & JORDANNE E.
I used Brian to purchase my first home and he made the whole process very easy and stress free each step of the way. Once I had grown out of my first home my wife and I used Brian again to sell our home and purchase a larger one. Once again, Brian made sure everything went smoothly and helped us get the full asking price for the home we were selling and a great price for the new one. He was always available to answer all of our questions and keep us informed. I would recommend Brian in a heartbeat!
SEAN & JASMINE S.
We couldn’t be happier to have had Brian as our real estate agent. He helped us purchase a very nice home that’s suitable for our needs. Brian was very professional, friendly and attentive, and truly went out of his way to make sure we were happy with our purchase. He was very considerate of our budget and had a sharp eye for any flaws, ensuring that we don’t buy a house with issues. His extensive knowledge and experience ensured that we got a great deal while still being competitive. We highly recommend him!
JUSTIN P. & PAULINA K.
My husband and I were a little apprehensive at first as we had a negative experience with our realtor during the sale of our first home. Brian put us at ease right away. He was very professional and personable. He was truly focused on what our family needed. He made the whole process easy and stress free. We are very pleased with the whole experience and can honestly say that Brian exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Brian for anyone looking for a professional, responsive realtor that goes that extra mile!
RYAN & SABRINA W.
I will recommend Brian to anyone who wants to buy a house in London because thanks to his perseverance and patience, his encouragement, his valuable advice and his honesty, I was able to buy the house of my dreams. I really appreciated the fact that he was not just there to push me to buy any house but, on the contrary, he always gave me the opportunity to give my opinion without any qualms. Moreover, he always gave me his point of view in a fair way. I am 100% satisfied with the service that Brian gave me.
Brian our experience with you as our sales agent for mom's house was excellent. I can't think of anything that you could have done to make it a better experience. You have the knowledge and expertise to do your job well. The house sold very quickly for our asking price and the deal closed with no problem. I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for a young energetic sales rep who knows how to get houses sold. On our recommendation you listed and sold our friend's house and I know they were very happy with the outcome.
LARRY & LINDA R.
Brian has been our real estate broker as a buyer and a seller. We had a great experience with him. Brian was pleasant, professional, and maintained great communication throughout the entire process. His expertise was invaluable. He gave great advice about things we could do and was able to sell our house for a very good price. He had a good sense for the value of houses and we saw several houses go by for the approximate value he stated. We are delighted to have Brian as our real estate broker and we would highly recommend him to any potential client.
SAMIM & SUHAIR A.
Buying your first home is an exciting time, however, it is a big decision and can also be a tad overwhelming. I was grateful to have someone as helpful and professional as Brian to guide me through the process. He took the time to listen to my needs and it wasn’t long before he had found the perfect home for me. Brian is a very honest, dependable and motivated individual who went above and beyond to ensure my first home buying experience was a success. I have owned my home for a little over a year now and I am as happy as the day I moved in – thanks Brian!
Just completed the sale of my 89 year old mother's home. Brian Van Bart was our chosen Real Estate Agent. We interviewed three agents and Brian stood out as the star from the beginning. He did not disappoint. From the moment we confirmed Brian would be our agent, he provided professional, honest, personable and spectacular customer service to any of our questions, needs or expectations. The home was sold quickly and met our price target. Thanks Brian and we will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone requiring the sale or purchase of a home in London and area.
We have worked with Brian from both perspectives of purchasing and selling real estate in the past year. We were very impressed with our initial experience in buying a property that we felt quite confident in working with him again in selling a house. Brian is professional and knowledgeable about the real estate market and current trends. His knowledge of the various marketing tools including technology and social media are definite assets in his business. In our experience we never felt rushed or pressured into making decisions. Thanks again Brian for all of your help, it has been a pleasure doing business with you!
BRENT & CATHY A.
I can recommend Brian's services with 100% confidence that he will help you to find your dream home or great investment property. He provides valuable advice that is backed up by his extensive experience in real estate business. I have dealt with multiple agents prior to meeting Brian and didn't get the same level of service from anyone. He is very patient and responsive, not pushy (as some realtors might be). Brian helped me to find my first investment property and set me up for success. I value his professional opinion and refer my friends to Brian. I am looking forward to working with him and his team in the future.
We are so happy that Brian is our Realtor. He helped us with all parts of the home-buying process and really set our minds at ease with excellent advice and honest opinions. Brian's efforts went above and beyond our expectations, and his help and support continued even after we moved into our new home. No matter when we needed him, Brian was available for all of our needs, big and small. As first time home buyers, Brian took fantastic care of us and is a completely trustworthy individual. Not only did he do so much for us, but he was also very gracious for our partnership. Brian's guidance allowed us to make decisions that were best for us. We couldn't be more satisfied with our first home thanks in large part to Brian's expertise.
MARTIN & JODY V.
Brian was great to work with. As a first time home buyer it was a little intimidating jumping into such a booming market. Brian made it very easy for us. Anytime we saw a listing come up that we wanted to view he responded promptly with a time and date and would go out of his way to accommodate us whether it was on the weekend or 8 at night he would always show up! Brian was very honest with us when it came to making offers as well. We would tell him what we were hoping to offer and he would let us know if he felt it would be enough or too much, and every time he was right! I would recommend Brian to anyone who wants to work with someone who is dependable, honest and hard working. Buying our first house would not have gone as smoothly without Brian!
I would recommend Brian Van Bart of Oliver & Associates Real Estate to anyone needing to buy or sell a property in the London area, or in any location Brian chooses to work. I was very impressed with the fact that Brian not only did his homework and research on listings and comparable sale properties in my area, but he also worked creatively and diligently at marketing my home, anticipating offers and having a plan in place to address them. Brian worked tirelessly on my behalf and was always available when needed. I would recommend Brian to anyone requiring his skills and the special attention he gives to his clients. I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Brian for any of my future buying or selling needs to ensure that I have the best person for the job.
My wife and I met Brian at a mortgage seminar hosted by our bank. He was knowledgeable about the housing market in the areas that we were interested in. As we began to look at houses we felt that Brian was quickly able to determine what we were looking for based on what we liked and did not like from previous showings. Once we settled on our home, Brian assisted us from purchase offer to acceptance, carefully explaining each step to us, so that we did not feel overwhelmed. Brian was friendly, professional, and willing to do any research that we required on a house to allow us to make an informed decision. With Brian we had a positive experience purchasing our first home and we would recommend Brian to anyone looking to purchase a home in the London area.
BRAD & MEREDITH Y.
Brian puts the REAL in Realtor. ;) But in all seriousness, Brian was the best realtor we could ask for as first-time homebuyers. He was knowledgeable, thorough, responsive, and incredibly accommodating to our busy crazy schedules. We could always count on Brian to help answer our million questions. He has a keen eye for detail and was able to help us make informed decisions about the houses we looked at. He was also great about giving us a realistic value of the homes, regardless of the listed price. We knew that we could trust Brian to help us make the best decision about purchasing our first home and we are now enjoying our new home! We would HIGHLY recommend Brian to anyone looking for a Realtor. We can't say enough good things about our positive experience with him!
RUSSELL & TINA P.
My husband & I used Brian as our Realtor when we were looking to buy our home. Being pregnant and looking for your very first house is stressful but Brian helped us every step of the way. As first time buyers, we were new to the whole process, but we felt very comfortable with him representing us. He explained to us along the way what would happen next and what was in our best interest. He was very kind and was always willing to answer our questions or meet whenever we wanted. If he couldn't personally make it to a house showing we wanted to visit, he sent a trusted coworker and would always follow up afterwards. We are very happy in our new home and will most definitely be using Brian in the future whenever we do decide to move again.
ALLAN & ASHLEY R.
The process of buying/selling a home can be a very stressful one. Before working with Brian, my wife and I warned him that we would be very demanding clients, with very high expectations for the level of service we would receive. I can safely say, however, that all of our expectations were EXCEEDED in working with Brian. Brian was incredibly prompt and responsive, offered us great advice throughout the process, and helped us achieve everything we could have hoped for in both the sale of our previous home, and the purchase of our new home. We love our new home, and we're here largely because of Brian's help. I am proud to recommend working with Brian (And have done so to anyone who will listen). Having bought/sold two other homes in the past 5 years, the difference in the experience was remarkable.
COLIN & SHANNON S.
Thanks to Brian's guidance my Boyfriend and I were able to purchase a home with ease. He made himself available for viewings and any questions/concerns that arose throughout the day. He was honest, which truly made this experience more comfortable. If he had a concern regarding any little thing he educated us on the potential outcomes, as well as the possible solutions (if any). In addition, he was respectful, professional and easy to talk to. Not only did he have to handle being bombarded with our inexperience, but that of the personalities of many of my family members who were involved in our purchase; all who were happy that we had Brian. His knowledge and input were a great asset in this process and due to that we have been in our home for 6 months so far with no "hidden surprises." Thanks Brian!
MATT K. & SHAWNA S.
We recently used Brian for the purchase of our new home and the sale of our old one. We honestly can’t say enough good things about him. He is truly as solid as they come. What impressed us the most is how prepared he was. He researched the market / area of our purchase and got us the best price possible. He did the same thing when setting the price for our sale and had it sold in 8.5 hours. Some may say that’s all luck but it in fact has everything to do with the price he set and the marketing effort he put forward. Brian isn’t greedy, he’s not about padding his own pocket. He’s about doing what’s best for his clients and doing it as quickly and seamlessly as possible. You can’t ask for more than that. If you’ve read this far in our review you’ve probably figured out that we would strongly recommend Brian. So stop researching agents and call him.
DREW & MAGGIE H.
Brian worked as our real estate agent helping us to buy our first home, a big step for us as a newly married couple. From the time we started looking he was very conscious of what we were looking for. He was patient and attentive, never making us feel like we needed to rush the process. He encouraged us to look at a variety of homes to ensure we were confident in the kind of home we wanted. When we were finally ready to purchase he worked very hard with the sellers to ensure we got the house for a fair price, good closing date and all the extra amenities we had negotiated into the deal. We have lived in our house in Lambeth now for about 8 months and have been very happy. We love the community we live in and our home has been very low maintenance aside from adding our own personal touches, which allows us to enjoy the space with friends and family.
MICHAEL & JENNA M.
I had an amazing experience with Brian Van Bart. Truly exceptional and very professional. Brian is able to connect with you as a client from the moment you meet him. He takes the time to understand you and your needs as well as keeps you informed of any relevant information throughout the process. His professional opinion was very valuable to me when looking for my perfect home and helped me view houses with a different perspective. Now, I have to say I am a new home owner with the help of Brian. I feel I made an informed decision and was and still am guided by him in how to close this process. From relevant data to suggestions and step by step instructions Brian did not miss a bit in helping me close my purchase. I am a first time home buyer and not having purchased a home before Brian was a huge support and reassured me along the way. You cannot go wrong with him.
My wife and I were so fortunate to have found Brian Van Bart when we moved to London, Ontario. Brian is an excellent real estate agent and a great person who helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. He is caring of one's needs and his attention to detail and the knowledge of the industry is incredible. Throughout the past several months, Brian has been there every step of the way. He answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Brian is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient and incredibly generous with his time. We never felt that he was just trying to sell us a house, but that he was a mentor to answer our questions and help us to make the best decision for our family. We now consider Brian a friend and would highly recommend him to anyone for all real estate needs.
HERATH & SHIRLEY K.
My husband and I have busy schedules and Brian was very accommodating and understanding of this when we were searching for our new home. We appreciated both his patience in showing us many houses as well as his attention to detail and advice when it came to value and resale of potential properties for us. Brian has a great knowledge of the industry and is also very resourceful (in terms of recommendations for services once we found our new home). The other great thing about dealing with Brian is that he is very quick to reply to email, text, and calls. This suited us really well and we always knew that we wouldn't be waiting long to hear back from him if there was a property we wanted to see or if we had a question about something. Brian also sold our house for us and was very accurate with his suggestions for staging the home, and provided a very comprehensive strategy for the sale of our home. If we move again we will definitely use Brian Van Bart.
CHRIS & MARY JANE S.
If you are looking to buy a house in London and looking for a local realtor, then you should talk to Brian. We moved from Oakville and not only we didn’t know enough about the city, but we were also first-time home buyers. Brian went above and beyond to help us choose the right neighborhoods and scheduled multiple house showings on weekends around our schedule over a couple of months. From contractors to mortgage specialists, his referrals are always hand-picked and tested. With his help and knowledge of the market, we were able to buy the second house we put an offer on. We currently live in a neighborhood which we had overlooked at first, but added to our list based on his suggestion. After living here for more that 6 months, I can only be grateful for working with Brian and taking his advice. We love our community and our house. We couldn’t have done it without Brian.
AYDOAN & MIGLENA A.
Going above and beyond would be an understatement when describing my experience with Brian in my search for a condo in London. From the beginning Brian made me feel at ease by educating me through the process and providing me with all the market research and information I needed. Brian has a unique approach and understanding of the real estate transaction process that gives one a sense of calm. Brian is readily available, friendly and made a usually stressful process enjoyable. He is the epitome of professionalism and knowledge and has a true passion for what he does. He was a constant advocate for my needs and always had my best interests at heart. He gave generous amounts of his time and presented helpful tips in home buying. Brian was a patient, masterful coordinator and always made me feel that even the most minuscule detail was important to him. Brian is the needle in the haystack that you should have working on your side and I have no hesitation in giving him my highest recommendation.
Brian impressed me from our initial meeting with his enthusiasm and dedication. He has high expectations for himself and an outstanding work ethic. Brian was able to identify what I was looking for and he was willing to meet with me in the morning, day, or night to look at houses and to answer any questions or concerns that I may have had. Very few people would devote as much time and effort as Brian did in this regard. In addition to the professional abilities and related attributes that separate Brian from others, I have found him to be one of the friendliest people I have met. Even after the purchase was finalized, Brian still makes the effort to send monthly newsletters with information on the market and great household tips! I highly recommend Brian as your next real-estate agent. He is an intelligent, dedicated, and mature professional. He brings a commitment to helping and he has all of the qualities that I feel are requested to perform at a high level.
Brian was amazing!! We could not have been happier with him as our realtor. He is so knowledgeable, professional but also real, he gave us his honest opinion on everything, and didn’t make us feel rushed or pressured to make decisions or offers on properties we weren’t 100% sure about. If we ever seemed discouraged he would always reassure us the right house would come along, and it did! He went out of his way to make sure we got to view every property we wanted to and after a few viewings with him he got such a good feel for what we were looking for he knew how we would feel about the house before we even went! He was so awesome, he’s such a kind guy and so personable. Every single question we had he could answer and if not he found us the answer (and as first time home buyers we had a lot). He would always give us his honest opinion as if he was in our position which was so helpful. Could not say enough good things about him. Thanks so much for helping us find our first house Brian!!
My family had a wonderful experience working with Brian to look for a home to fulfill our needs. In fact, we have never come across someone so patient and understanding before. We were looking for a house for over a year and we became so frustrated because either the house did not match what we were looking for or the price was simply too much for us to make any offer. However, Brian always stood with us, never tried to push us to purchase a house which wasn`t of our liking or needs and whose price we couldn’t afford, and each time Brian would reassure us that our own home is just around the corner. As if he was a magician, he finally helped us find our dream home which was even more than our expectations at the last minute when we were almost abandoning the search. Honestly, we admire, appreciate and thank him for his professionalism, honesty and patience in dealing with his clients. Once more, thank you Brian for a job well done and we won’t hesitate to recommend you to friends, colleagues and family members. All the best Brian!
Where to begin here..We are a small young family coming from Mississauga, for starters we didn't think any Realtor would take us seriously based on our age (lol).. with also absolutely no knowledge of London whatsoever and in the middle of a meteoric and insanely difficult housing market for buyers. We contacted Brian initially based on positive online reviews, and couldn’t have been more satisfied with the process. While the process of homebuying was much more difficult than we’d imagined, based on the levels of competitiveness, Brian gave us excellent guidance, unflagging availability, and deep knowledge about a really wide range of homes that we looked at. He was also fast in replies, I found that really difficult to find in real estate agents here in London unfortunately.. hence why we stuck with Brian :). We put our complete trust in his real estate ability and he found us the perfect home! I hope we’re in our new home for a long time, but if we were to move, I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Brian again or give him anything but the highest recommendation.

Used Brian on recommendation from a coworker when I was first moving to London. I was moving from a small town to the city and wasn't quite sure what I needed and wanted within a city that is VERY opinionated on the neighbourhood you live in. Brian continually made me feel like a priority each and every time I have used him.
From the buying perspective he was amazing. He really listened to what my needs were and what I wanted (i.e. not a new build, older home with minimal repairs needed). He took into account needs that I hadn't considered (school, yard for pets - those neighborhoods matter in London!) and worked to find properties that met those needs.
While viewing, he was flexible (a must when I was just starting a new job in a demanding/stress filled hours), was not only open and honest about the properties themselves, but what the market typically supports (multi-offers, with typical expectation of 20% more than asking - at the time).
When I was looking to rent out my property, he helped with available options as well as recommendations, AND happily (and successfully) helped me sell said property.
The selling process was excellent as well. His recommendations for contractors were amazing, he was open and honest and provided advice that even when I disagreed with, he continued to support the sale 100%, even while dealing with me long distance and my new crazy schedule (living 3 hrs away with newborn).
Overall, Van Bart Real Estate has been amazing and you would be hard pressed to find a better agent to deal with.
My wife and I used Brian’s real estate services and expertise back in 2011 when we were buying our first home together. We were so happy with his hard work and dedication, we never even considered using another agent when we were looking for our ‘forever’ home this year. Brian advised us on what should be done to have our house staged and ready to sell. After following all of his recommendations, we ended up receiving top dollar for our house and were absolutely thrilled.
When it came to finding a home, the market began to really heat up in the spring of this year. Brian kept us well informed of how the buying process could change with multiple offers happening more frequently and certain conditions being left out to enhance the offer. The market was extremely competitive with multiple and bully offers happening almost every day which we had not quite seen before. After a house or two slipped away, it was easy to get caught up in the moment and lose focus on what we really wanted in a house or with the location we wanted to live. Brian kept us calm and level headed throughout the process and made sure we did not settle on a property. We ended up purchasing our dream home this summer which will be the perfect place to raise our two young children and we couldn’t be happier.
His professionalism is second to none and his work ethic is outstanding. Brian continues to be a top agent in his company year after year which would surprise no one who knows or who has worked with him before. We believe Brian goes the extra mile for his customers and we are truly happy to have worked with Brian once again. We can’t thank you enough Brian and would highly recommend anyone looking to buy or sell a house to contact Brian right away. You will not be disappointed.
