...here are some very nice notes from my clients throughout the years
I found myself in the difficult position of having to sell my mother's home after moving her into assisted care. I was under pressure, overwhelmed and very naive. Enter Jerry Breiner! He listened to my plight devised a plan and took charge. He guided me every step of the way with kindness and patience. He even went over and above the call of duty by charming my mom and talking me off the ledge on more than one occasion. He even managed to list and sell Mom's house Before our target date!
I am forever grateful to Jerry Breiner and would recommend him enthusiastically.Gerald is a wonderful agent. He is prompt, available, has experience, and is professional. We are so thankful to have had him as our agent for our recent home purchase and will continue to use him
I met Jerry when I inquired about about a home he has listing that was located in the area my wife and I had focused on as a great spot for our relocation from Bakersfield. That home was sold :( However, Jerry quickly built a list of homes based on our "wish lists" and we spent a few weekdays driving around and falling in love with most of them. His negotiation skills and market knowledge helped us close on a home well below listing price and we have since settled in and love it. I still email Jerry just for insite on real estate and for assistance on trying to find a home for our retired parents. He has yet to find the 3 bedroom house with a yard for sub 300k, but then again it doesn't exist in this county. He is trying though!
Jerry is an incredibly diligent and attentive realtor. He has loads of information and if he can’t answer a question he finds the answer immediately. He is ALWAYS available via text, phone, and/or email. Jerry works hard to fight for what you want/need. I would HIGHLY recommend him!!
Jerry did a wonderful job assisting us during our home purchase in Thousand Oaks, CA. His attention to detail and prompt responsiveness was especially appreciated since we were out of state buyers. I would highly recommend Jerry!
Jerry Breiner is a total pro who knows every aspect of buying or selling a new home. He stays on top of the paperwork, negotiates very effectively, and does everything that's needed to close the deal in a timely manner. On top of that, he knows all the local contractors and was a great help in putting us in touch with the right people to make any repairs or modifications that were needed. He's not only fully competent, but was a joy to work with. Buying or selling a house has become a lot more complicated than it used to be, and we feel very fortunate to have found Jerry to work with us. Five stars all the way!

Ok… If you are looking to buy a house in Ventura you should call Jerry Breiner. He was our agent and it was a great experience. Jerry helped us every step of the way… answered every dumb question we had, continued to show us properties until we found the right one. We even called him on Thanksgiving to ask questions… he picked up… no problem. We brought our kids to almost every place we looked at… they debated loudly who’s room would be who’s at every place… he did great with the kids as well. Jerry is a super helpful person.
Thanks to Jerry... we just closed escrow on our dream house. And we looked a lot of houses. With his expert knowledge and local experience Jerry helped us to locate exactly what we were looking for and the deal we were looking for. We highly recommend Jerry Breiner to anyone looking to buy a home.

We had a special historic house for sale, and after interviewing many realtors who supposedly specialized in such houses we tried one in LA who turned out to be basically worthless. We started over and tried another, this time requiring that he use Jerry Breiner as a local broker in association. After a period of time it became apparent that Jerry was doing all the meaningful work and the super LA high power realtor was basically putting small ads in the LA Times. When the LA broker's listing ran out we did not renew it, and listed with Jerry exclusively. During the entire period Jerry had set up an excellent website at www.gouldresidence.com with lots of info on the house and its history; something the LA realtor never thought of or was apparently capable of. Not long after Jerry took over the listing we had a buyer. We had to do some negotiating, and Jerry was able to get us a price above the listed price. We are very impressed with Jerry's commitment, imagination, web skills, and general attitude and demeanor. The proof is in the pudding. Jerry sold the house; no one else did

Hey, Jerry-....didn't really get a chance to say how much I REALLY appreciate all you did to help make me an official homeowner! I absolutely couldn't have done it without you, and I'm so glad that I lucked out and got you for a realtor! It all just seemed to fall in place. You always had a calm perspective when I was freaking out, and were so very patient with my endless questions, so THANK YOU! I have to say the whole process was relatively painless, and everyone you introduced me to...Robert, Alex, Donna, Pat, have been top notch, and so knowledgeable...Woohoo, I'm a homeowner!
Jerry worked with my wife and I for approximately 6 months. He was available on the weekends and always willing to show us all the properties we wanted to see. He was so in tune with our needs and goals he actually helped us look outside our original parameters which allowed us to find the right home we were seeking. It was a lot of work, and some rejection with a few offers before finally securing an accepted offer. I highly recommend Jerry for all of your residential housing needs - buying or selling..
Jerry is a true professional with a personality of gold! I was most impressed with his ability to keep us informed and up to date during our home search and ultimately our purchase. Jerry was always quick to respond to our inquires and set up showings quickly based on our schedules. A true pleasure to work with, Jerry kept the home buying process fun and entertaining. We look forward to working with Jerry again in the near future!"

Jerry Breiner earned this 5-star review. The RE/MAX Gold Coast office of Harold Powell was recommended to us by our local RE/MAX agent as we were looking to buy a vacation home in the Ventura area. Harold directed us to one of his top agents, Jerry Breiner, to help us assess our needs and discover the area to find properties that met our needs. The recommendation to work with Jerry would be one of the best real-estate recommendations we ever received. Jerry is very knowledgeable about the Ventura County real estate market and helped us to see new possibilities that met our needs for a vacation home. He was patient as we honed our search area, budget and wish list over a number of months- thank goodness for his patience! He is wonderful to work with and has a great personality- we really hit it off and enjoyed every interaction whether via phone or in person.
After finding a property that was a great fit, he impressed us even more when he took charge of the negotiation and the process with total professionalism. He is extremely thorough, fought for us and was always on top of all the forms needed to proceed. We ended up with some "challenges" with the selling agent we won't mention here, but Jerry helped minimize the impact of those on us- which was much appreciated.
I'd sum it up by saying Jerry started out as a business recommendation, became an acquaintance during this multi-month process, and we are now proud to now call him our friend. I would recommend anyone in the Ventura County area look up and work with Jerry Breiner as your agent. You’ll be glad you did.

Gerald (Jerry) came highly recommended from a friend and so we gave him a call. From the moment I first spoke with Jerry on the phone, I was immediately struck by his down to earth, friendly manner, which was very much appreciated, especially in our area where our previous dealings with realtors have been stuffy and at times, condescending. Jerry was from word one, both professional and courteous and really made me feel that he was excited to help my wife and I find a home. I was almost startled with how quickly Jerry was willing to get to work showing us potential homes. Within the first week we were looking seriously at making an offer on a place that we loved, and Jerry talked us through every step of the process, explaining every detail and easing our minds. We were lucky to have our offer accepted, and Jerry again went to work. We encountered some snags and complications with the seller's agents and sellers themselves, but Jerry helped us through with advice, appropriate insight, and guidance that made everything seem as smooth as possible from our perspective. We were not used to such hard and diligent work from a realtor. Jerry's expertise and above and beyond professionalism unbelievable. His friendly, real world, "tell it like it is" manner is so, so welcome in this day and age. We felt more like we were working with a close friend or even family member, than a realtor. In the end, we closed successfully on a home that we love, in a neighborhood that we adore, and we honestly feel that we could not have done this without Jerry. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend him to friends or family. If you seek a realtor you can trust and will truly enjoy working with, look no further than ours. Call Jerry Breiner!

Jerry was amazing. He's by far the best realtor I've ever worked with. I felt I could trust his judgement and he provided excellent advice. He's very familiar with the process, the area and was able to find a roofer to provide a quote after a heavy rain and roofers were not returning my calls. And, he seems like a great guy.
Jerry took care of every detail and was very knowledgeable, attentive, and thorough. Very easy to contact, always getting back to us in a timely manner. We will definitely use him again for our next transaction
