As a first-time home buyer and learning as I went, I was fortunate to connect with George after searching for homes on He fit my style of search as I was able to pick and choose homes that appealed to me at my own pace then he would set up times to tour the properties. He was not pushy about anything. He was respectful of my wants and helped the direction of the search based on my desired location and price. Being new to home buying and the city, George was my go-to for a range of questions from early inquiries about quality of home builders to basics of closing and escrow as the offer progressed. In addition, he would offer more information and point out things I might want to know but didn’t know to ask. We communicated through emails/texts/calls as was convenient for me since I was making time around work. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Thanks! Riley Riley Harrington 09/18/17
George I just wanted to thank you for all you did for us in the buying of our home! You were able to keep us informed during all the steps to the sale. You helped us understand the paperwork and was a great communicator between us and the sellers. This made for a smooth transaction and we appreciate everything you did! I would recommend using your services anytime! Thanks again! Barb Swanson
Mr. George Pullen was the Qualifying Broker that assisted me in selling my townhouse in May 2017. George's committment and dedication carried me through the selling process efficiently, timely and with minimal frustration. The whole process took less than one month to complete from listing to closing. I would personally recommend George to any person that is seriously committed to selling their home. If there is any information that I can provide or any questions I can answer, please feel free to contact me at 321-6781. Tim Chávez
"You could not ask for a more knowledgeable, professional, and committed real estate agent than George Pullen. George diligently worked with me over the course of several months to ensure that I found the right house that I felt comfortable purchasing as a first time home buyer. As you can imagine, numerous times throughout the process I weighed my options which would alter my criteria such as location and price range. Through all of this - and in a very competitive market - George always supported my decisions and took extraordinary steps to cater to my needs and priorities. As well, George was never far away and was very dependable. Any time of day George was always available to cheerfully answer questions, offer background information, and provide gentle guidance during each step needed to find and close on my new home. Additionally, with any large transaction there are situations that arise and George was a loyal advocate every time! He was very proactive and safeguarded my interests and finances in every situation. I can't say it enough but I will say it at least once more right here, thank you George for being such an outstanding agent and for making my first home purchase an amazing success!"
