Discreet, professional, intuitive, honest and with impeccable vision are just a few qualities that business partners Brian Courville and JB Fung possess. In May 2013 we enlisted Courville and Fung, Directors of the John Aaroe Group Architectural Division, to sell our much loved mid century post and beam architectural home, “The Rhies Residence”. One could argue that the house would sell itself, being convenient location for studios, close to 101, easy access to the Westside, pool, privacy and above all unique and stylish. But under the care of the Modern Living LA team, we not only sold it (essentially at the first open house), but we had multiple offers, hundreds of thousands over the asking the price, and, importantly a buyer who appreciated the architectural bones. They handled both us, and the buyer with kid gloves; charming and accommodating at every turn. We couldn’t recommend them more highly.
We chose JB Fung as our realtor to educate and assist us in territory that was unfamiliar to us – income properties. JB edited the field of property choices, understanding perfectly what elements needed to be in place before we would feel comfortable entertaining any thought of a purchase. He was PRESENT and ENGAGED at every stage of our search, selection and the purchase, providing germane input that impacted our decision-making process. His advice and business acumen were invaluable in TWO real estate purchases. JB Fung is our go-to realtor.
It was great to work with Brian Courville during the process of selling my former house on Lakeridge Road in Los Angeles. Brian was extremely responsive, understanding, professional and supportive throughout the entire process. He is a great listener as well as a strong negotiator, and I really felt that he had my back all the way through. On top of it all, he’s a really great guy. I have told Brian that I would be happy to act as an independent referee if needed, and will most certainly recommend his services to my friends and contacts.
Brian Courville was amazing during the process of buying a home….after looking at over 20 different places in the Hollywood area…I finally settled on the perfect spot….all thanks to Brian’s patience and knowledge of my lifestyle and needs…. As a person that grew up in the real estate business I’ve been around the process of buying and selling homes my whole life. Brian took me through the process step by step and made it as smooth as possible. When I’m ready to upgrade…I know who to call!
Brian, how can I ever thank you enough? Your hard work not only found me a house, but granted a lifelong dream. My place is not only perfect for me, but it’s a treasure I’m extremely proud to own, and I feel so lucky to have met you and had you as my realtor – and now friend. Here’s to our next deal together.
A perfect transaction! My husband and I were nervous about buying our first home. We had no idea where to begin, what to expect and/or if we could even afford something in the area that we wanted. JB Fung was referred to us, by some great friends of ours, they purchased a property through JB and just couldn’t say enough great things about him. He took the time to show us all the options out there. JB’s service didn’t stop there, he went on to help us find the perfect mortgage broker, the perfect appraiser and the perfect insurance company. JB Fung is the best one-stop shopping real estate agent out there. We would strongly recommend him to all of our friends and family.
JB Fung Delivered and Pulled Out All the Stops! He advised us on doing all the things to show the seller’s agent that we were serious and eventually presented an offer that was mindful of the needs of the seller. JB’s offer was extremely organized, methodical, and well thought out. It even ended up that our offer was slightly below the highest offer on the table – but JB had done such a tremendous job of presenting a clean, no hassle deal, the sellers felt safest with our offer and we got the house. Thanks JB!!!
JB Fung is a tremendous negotiator and protected our interest like a pit bull! Not only did JB Fung sell our home at our full asking price, he also put us in a fantastic home that we never thought we could afford. He listened to our thoughts and desires and found us a gorgeous 1925 Spanish duplex filled with old world details and in a great location. JB’s interest in our needs did not end at the close of escrow, he stayed in touch, making sure we were completely satisfied and secured with our decision to buy our particular property, leaving us worry free! He was always there for us. JB Fung will be our real estate agent for life!
JB Fung sold our income property for Top Dollar!!! We chose JB as our realtor for a rental house we sold because we saw the result that he was able to achieve with selling another property a block away. He advised us what changes to make and helped us through the entire process – which allowed us to sell for many thousands of dollars more than we ever imagined. JB Fung was very accessible, easy to communicate with, likeable and yet very professional and a savvy negotiator.
