What Our Clients Say

Blue Solid Icon of an Opening Apostrophe

I've known Brandt for many years. We employed him to sell our four hotel properties. Brandt was able to find qualified buyers and we sold these properties at a price equal or more than we requested.

Throughout the process, he was the consummate professional. I recommend him highly.

Elliott Miles, President

Skyline Hospitality

After working with Brandt to list and sell my 140 room Best Western Plus, I have come to implicitly trust Brandt and can wholeheartedly recommend him. While I witness Brandt to be hard-working, extremely knowledgeable and a complete professional, I also found him to be kind, honest and forthright, a true “southern gentleman”…. a delight to work with.

Gerald D. Roth, President

Roth Properties, Inc.

Brandt has high integrity, honesty, and is very trustworthy. We have used him on three hotel sales. In all cases, he has treated us with respect, looked out for what was in our best interests, and worked to get the sale done. We continue to keep in touch and consider him a friend. He seems to be in touch with what is happening, not only in hotel real estate but the industry in general.
