"Bruce is a complete professional. He looked after our interests every step of the way. We both felt very comfortable working with him. He is very knowledgeable and informed in the market. Bruce negotiated a very good purchase price for us. We highly recommend him. " - John

"Bruce really looked out for our interests. It didn’t seem to make a difference whether we were looking at lower prices or more midrange. He encouraged us to bid higher only to keep our chances in this highly competitive market. But also let us know when we could bid lower! He also worked hard to quickly get us disclosures on homes we expressed interest in so we were aware of potential problems. It took us 5 months, and multiple trips to finally find our new home (we visited over 30 homes). Bruce was patient and also kept in touch w/us, often checking out places (we had reviewed on Zillow) as we lived 3 time zones away. " - Cyndi

"Bruce is an excellent real estate agent and wonderful to work with! We had a very positive experience, and having Bruce represent us made a rather stressful life transition of moving cross-country less so. He was professional--readily available, checked in with us regularly, followed up on everything we had questions/concerns about, thoroughly answered our questions, and noted every comment and preference we had. He was also proactive in anticipating some of our needs and asked good questions of the seller to help us understand every detail. We would highly recommend Bruce to other homebuyers! " - Maria

"I am concluding a very difficult property search and purchase. I was constrained greatly by needing a special property type. Worse, I was using very specialized financing. While Bruce's peers told him he'd never be able to put me in a house due to this, his very positive, professional and persistent attitude prevailed. He made a special point to understand what I was looking for and to always advise when properties that could be of interest came on the market. We toured or investigated dozens of properties. Bruce put forth an enormous amount of effort to assist me, and always advised me in a manner to help me. I could also tell that his likable nature was creating favor with potential sellers and other agents. I will absolutely use Bruce on my next property transaction. I heartily recommend him. " - Mark

"Bruce was a perfect agent. Attentive, understanding, personable, proactive and detail oriented. We were guided expertly every step of the way. We highly recommend Bruce for any real estate transaction. " - Dan, Walnut Creek

"Bruce is very patient, knowledgeable and data savvy. He was able to bring my 6 months of home search to an end during which we visited at least 30 homes. He did due diligence in helping find the right inspection companies and making himself available. He is extremely responsive and very accessible. There is lot to learn from his experience and his work ethics. Hats off to such a dedicated realtor!! Highly recommend him. " - Hasham, Walnut Creek

"Bruce was a wonderful realtor. I would highly recommend him. He helped navigate through a rather difficult sale with a number of repairs needing to be done. He always explained the issue and what different options we had. In the end we ended u p.k with our forever home! " - Jon, Benicia

"Bruce Newman is an amazing agent. I first met him at an open house in Benicia. I wasn't even planning to buy a home this year yet he worked to get me a house that I fell in love with. I ended up buying a house this year! I met with him initially to get an idea of how the market was and to see a few open houses. Bruce was very transparent, personable, attentive and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend Bruce Newman to anyone who is interested in buying a home. He works hard for you and is always available to address your questions or concerns. He is definitely a pro in guiding you through the buying process. When issues arose during the closing process Bruce was there to provide valuable input based on his experience. He is very trustworthy and is a great negotiator. With a lot of back and forth and a few addendums later, I can honestly say I was comfortable signing the paperwork. Thanks Bruce! " - Lena, Benicia

"Bruce is awesome! He was a great support and also went above and beyond his duties to help us when we were frustrated about the process. When others failed to give us updates or we couldn't get answers, Bruce was there for us 100%! We feel that he was the only one in this entire transaction that gave us real GENUINE help. We would definitely refer Bruce to our friends and family. " - Patty, Vacaville

"Bruce is THE best agent I have ever worked with. Highly knowledgeable, accommodating, and responsive with us as his clients. We felt like we were the only ones he was working for (when in reality we knew he had other clients)! Bruce is kind, caring, and his attention to detail is impeccable. I would highly recommend him as an agent to anyone who is looking to buy a home. Thank you endlessly, Bruce! " - Brittany, Concord

"Bruce is professional, extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market and geographic area, with a keen focus to the details of his clients. I met him on one of a number of open houses I have attended since summer and can attest that he definitely is a stand out of his class of working realtors. Bruce is also able to provide any necessary connections to additional services needed to complete a transaction. I look forward to our continued business relationship to acquire a residence in Livermore and recommend Bruce to anyone in need of such services. " - Nila
