Get to know Brian Ward
My name is Brian Ward and I specialize as a Buyer's Agent. If you are buying a home you want someone who represents you, the Buyer, not the Seller! The best way to be certain that a Buyer's Agent is working in your best interest is to work with an agent who specializes as an Accredited Buyer Representative, ABR.
I service Florida's West Coast including Sarasota, Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, Siesta Key, Longboat Key, Anna Maria Island, Venice and their surrounding communities.
Buying a home is a big decision and a personal one. You need the RIGHT PERSON to find a home that suits your needs - someone who knows the the homes and can help you get the deals. I'll help you get in the right door. I check multiple listings throughout the day, so you are the first one at the best homes! Plus, I coach you from from starting your search, to closing, and even after that. You control the decisios. I handle the details. Purchasing real estate is a complex and major transaction with many details to be handled. Depending on the business arrangement you have with a licensed real estate agent, tht agent may actually be negotiating for the seller, not you the buyer.
My Buyer Services
As an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) I can help you find the best home for your needs at a fair market price. More than one million people in the United States are licensed to sell real estate. Of those licensees, fewer than 2 percent are Accredited Buyer Representatives. My real estate representation, as a Buyer's Agent, is provided at no additional cost to you. Is your agent working with your best interest in mind ?
I have also earned NAR's Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource certification (SFR). Designed for real estate professionals at all experience levels, NAR's SFR certification gives you a framework for understanding how to: direct distressed sellers to finance, tax, and legal professionals; qualify sellers for short sales; develop a short-sale package; negotiate with lenders; tap into buyer demand; safeguard your commission; and more!
In addition to earning the ABR and SFR Designations, as a RE/MAX Alliance Group Associate, I have also been trained in "green housing" concepts. RE/MAX Alliance Group, one of the largest real estate brokerages in Florida, with offices here in the Sarasota - Bradenton area, is one of the first real estate companies in the country to demonstrate a commitment to green business practices as well as promoting green home ownership in Southwest Florida.
It is my goal to help make your real estate investing an exciting, rewarding, and enjoyable, experience. And, provide you with superior service at all times.
My local expertise and extensive real estate experience will benefit you whether you are serious about buying or selling a home at this time, or are a returning client checking out the many homeowner resources we offer. We can help you find the perfect home, condo, investment or commercial property - whether it be new or a resale. We can also represent you with NEW HOME DEVELOPMENTS as well as For Sale By Owners.
Buying a Home ? We look forward to helping you select the home of your dreams by taking time to listen to your needs and desires.
Selling a Home ? If your selling or thinking of selling a home I can help you get top dollar for your home. As a Buyer's Agent I know what the buyers are looking for and what they are not.

Thank you for all your help with finding just the right house for us. Things just seemed to fall into place so quick and easy, thanks to you!

I wanted to take a few moments of your time to thank you for the wonderful assistance you provided in the purchase of my last home. From the litany of viewings to the repeated e-mail updates to the time sitting in my attorney's office, you were a most reliable and beneficial resource. I thank you for your dedication to my cause and the integrity with which you provided me service. I certainly couldn't have done it alone.
Here's to continued success and our doing business again - hopefully, in the very near future!

We first met Brian Ward about three years ago, when he was the agent for the house we bought. We immediately established a rapport with him. His is a personality that inspires confidence and comfort. He goes out of his way for his clients, " sellers or buyers" to make sure that they are completely satisfied with the "deal".
We loved doing business with him then and will continue to do so in the future

Thank you for all you did for us. You went out of your way taking us all over looking at condo's for a period of 2 years. We were very undecisive in what we wanted. You were very patient with us. Working long distance with us from Wis., picking us up at the airport, going for lunch. You were great. Finally you found us just what we wanted, site unseen, and we trusted you. We'd recommend you to anyone. Regards, Carol and Larry
We found Brian to be knowledgeable about the area and flexible about meeting our need. He was very patient as we explored various options from condos to houses in the various communities. Once we decided to buy a condo that was under construction, Brian was very helpful in checking the construction progress and coordinating the close. We hope to do business with Brian again.

I had narrowed down the area in which I wanted to buy a vacation home, and had also narrowed the type of housing we were looking for prior to meeting with Brian. Given our parameters, and a limited amount of time I had to look, Brian kept me on track, showed me potential properties which met my criteria, and located the perfect property for us. I appreciated his expertise, knowledge of the area, and professionalism.
