I value trust above all with my clients. That value came from a previous career as a Law Enforcement Officer. Prior to becoming a Realtor, I served as a police officer/ detective for 34 years. As an officer, I learned the value of ethics, trust, and the ability to read and negotiate with people from all walks of life. Many of the skills that I acquired as a police officer/ detective have translated well in my real estate career.
I am licensed in both Florida and Kentucky. This experience has given me an edge in representing my clients from my vast experience. Whether it has been representing a local power company in property acquisitions and sales, managing properties for several property management companies, or residential clients buying and selling homes, my skill set is well-rounded and ready to serve a wide variety of real estate needs.
I recognize and value the trust my clients place in me, which drives me to exceed their expectations. Over 80% of my business is from satisfied customers returning to do more business with me or by referring their friends and relatives. As a dedicated agent, I will walk you through your sale for purchase from day 1 and guide you beyond the closing date. My love for real estate and Florida sunshine fuels my enthusiasm for the job!
If you are looking for a dedicated family man that is service-driven, ethical, and willing to get in the game and fight for you; I’m your agent!
We have known Brett for quite some time, truly an amazing guy. When we needed to sell our home, we didn’t hesitate to contact him. After we spoke with Brett, he met us at our home shortly after the initial call. He spent hours answering our questions, providing information regarding how long their listings typically stay on the market and on many comps in the area. Brett made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps many other realtors likely don’t, such as providing staging and showing tips, scheduling and having professional photographs taken, and a lot more. When we saw our listing and pictures, we were very pleased.
Our house did reside on the market for some time due to publishing of the listing during the slow winter market, but as spring approached, our house quickly went under contract. We accepted and Brett walked us through every step of the closing process – his knowledge, guidance, and responsiveness were invaluable. He provided contractor recommendations for miscellaneous repairs, he could be reached via text or telephone at nearly any time of day, he followed up for status updates to ensure commitments were being upheld and to provide open communication with the buyer and buyer’s agent. It couldn’t have been a more pleasant experience.
I will recommend Brett Tate to everyone I know. He’s a true professional and an amazing guy. He will make selling your home as easy as home-selling can possibly be, and you’d be hard pressed to find a better Realtor.
I listed my rental properties with Bret Tate in Covington KY. I was not sure how it was going to go, several rentals properties are on the market in Norther KY. Bret sold the properties in no time. I know that selling the properties is what Bret does. What I did not know, what I did not expect and what sold the properties was Bret’s dedication. Bret scheduled all the showings and provided my tenants with the appropriate notice required by law. Bret made my tenants part of the process. I have sold several properties and used many brokers. Bret was a pleasure to work with.
