  •   Bryant was absolutely fantastic! He managed a rental property I own for over two years.  He was always a professional,  handled any issues that  came up and it was always rented for top dollar.  I would highly recommend Bryant for any of your real estate needs.

    thumb Diane K.

      Bryant goes above and beyond to ensure things are taken care of ASAP.  Extremely professional and attentive.  He responds to emails, texts and phone calls within a matter of seconds.  I have been living in this location for over a year - each time I've had an issue it's been handled appropriately (heater issues, water leaks, request for additions such as a screen door).  I highly recommend Eugene Colt and Bryant to anyone looking for a great place with great service.  Bryant truly shows compassion and resolves issues. =)!!!

    thumb Nisha P.

      WOW WOW WOW. This is my go to company for EVERYTHING real estate. This guy gets it done and gets it done well. Fast, effective and friendly. As soon as you meet Bryant you know he eats, sleeps and dreams real estate. His whole life revolves around make the customer happy while closing the deal. If he can't help you then no one can. I would recommend him to my own grandmother.

    thumb Franco S.
  •   Fantastic company! We utilized Bryant for property management at first, he is very thorough and on top of what it takes to get a great tenant at a great rate!
    Very happy with his services.  
    He now oversees our 3 other properties and our parents too.

    We have also had Bryant sell or condo and referred him to friends to help them buy a new home.
    He will be helping us end of year with a 4 plex, we are very excited.
    We all love Eugene Colt Resl Estate and all their 5 star services.

    thumb katie b.

      We have done three real estate transactions with Bryant and plan to do many more in the future. I give him my highest recommendation. He sold our last home in a week and worked day and night to negotiate a wonderful deal on our new purchase. He is honest, hardworking, trustworthy and on top of all of that, a great person! Thank you Bryant for everything you have done for our family!

    thumb Natalie S.

      I can't say enough about how much Bryant helped me in the purchase of my new home. He is the most competent realtor that I have ever come across; knowledgeable, friendly, straightforward, and a great negotiator. He really goes out of his way to make sure his client comes first. I recommend him to anyone.

    thumb Richard B.
  •   I would not recommend this company. They misrepresented their services.  Tenant they found broke their one year lease after four months and stole property and damaged my house. Eugene Colt did not reimburse me properly despite my ask. Additionally Bryant Katzen from this company, once hired, was rude and condescending.

    My advice, DO NOT GET INTO A CONTRACT with them. They may do a good job taking photos and marketing but they did not deliver what they promised. Additionally they moved from Solana Beach to Temecula without advising me thus mail was returned as undelivered. I had to hunt down where to send mail to them.

    thumb Maureen B.

      Three words come to mind in regards to choosing a real estate company you want to work with: Honesty, Integrity, Trust; and Bryant not only shows all those characteristics in his work but goes above and beyond any expectations by showing compassion for what he does.

    I referred Bryant to my client for the sale of their home a few months ago and the level of skill, knowledge and care that he took with them simply magnified all those traits as one by one he took on issue after issue that was beyond my clients or my control. Not only that but throughout the whole process was able to keep me informed with what is going on and what to expect next in the process. Basically he turned what could have been a total mess and pulled it all together in a professional manner.

    Without a doubt he has earned my business whenever I have a friend or family member looking to buy a home, sell a home, make an investment and anyone looking for an awesome rental property management team!
