"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. 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.
"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. Very responsive, trustworthy, and a pleasure to work with!"
Zach A. & Katie S.
"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. Brian, thank you so much for your help and service."
Andrew & Magda W.
"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.

"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."
Ryan J. & Shyanne E.
"Brian and his team did an amazing job with the sale of my house. Everything moved along smoothly and we had multiple offers! Thanks again."
"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."
"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! "
Kevin G. & Olivia 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."
Mike & Jenna M.
"In addition to selling our home this year, Brian sold both of our parent's 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.
"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 finding 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! "
"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.
"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."
"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.
"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 in to 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.
"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'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.
"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. "
"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 lawyer, home inspectors, etc. Very happy with the experience and would highly recommend him to anyone I know."
"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.
"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 the 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.
"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.
"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."
"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!!"
Alex M & Victoria S.
"We recently bought our dream home with Brian and Frank's help. Both were friendly and very responsive to our needs and questions. We would recommend them to anyone!"
"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 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 a great strategy and had the right contacts to help us get our house ready, which greatly attributed to us being very happy with the sale of our house."

"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. DJ W. 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 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.
"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."
