We're running about 4 months behind on this review, Sorry Vinicius! After meeting with Vinicius for the first time we knew he would be our agent. The home we were selling was the home I was raised in and the home our children were raised in, so there was a fair amount of reassuring and "hand-holding" through the process. Once we signed on with him the ball started rolling quickly. The contractor/subcontractors showed up soon after and got to work. Everyone was courteous and focused on getting the job done right. Vinicius was there either in person or via phone to address any concern and answer any questions. He got the job done in a timely manner! If you're looking for someone knowledgeable about all things Santa Clara, someone whose got his finger on the market pulse, and who is personable, kind and genuine, Give Vinicius a call.

I've purchased and sold several homes, and Vinicius is the best realtor I have ever worked with. We relocated out of the area and communication was one of my top concerns when selecting a realtor. Vinicius provided frequent updates and sent pictures that kept us involved and informed at every step along the way. He did an unbelievable job coordinating contractors to repair and refurbish our house for a smooth sale and happy buyers down the road. After seeing the process he brings to the seller side of the transaction, I would not hesitate to purchase any home that he represents. Honest, professional and transparent at every step of the process, I have no qualms about giving him the highest possible recommendation.

Vinicius is the consummate professional. He always kept us on track when selling our Santa Clara home and followed through on his commitments. Our house sold for more than expected; not sure what else to say. There is no need to look elsewhere; Vinicius did what he set out to do. Thanks Vinicius!

Vinicius helped sell my fathers estate home. When we met with Vinicius he made us feel comfortable that he could handle everything for us. Since we live out of state we were concerned that we might have to make several trips back to clean out the house, sell household items, sign papers, and take care of the property but we never had to go back. Vinicius handled it all - from keeping an eye on the property, setting up estate sale company, finding contractors to clean and fixing up the property. He kept in contact with us to let us know estimates, how things were progressing with updates, listing dates and made us feel at ease. Within 2 weeks of listing we had offers and closed on the house a month after listing it. Would highly recommend Vinicius - he is top notch and did an excellent job!! We can't thank him enough for all his hard work and attention to detail!!

"Vinicius helped to sell our home of 15 years. We interviewed several real estate agents from the South Bay and some through referrals. What we loved about Vinicius was that he was very down to earth and we had a high amount of comfort with him that he was going to do what was best for us from the start. He truly looks out for his clients and helps them maximize their chances of selling at a good price, even in tough markets. His contacts of contractors, gardeners, landscapers came in handy when it came to get our home ready for sale. He handled everything from start to finish and was in constant communication with us through the entire sales process. Vinicius is very fluent when it comes to tech marketing. The VR walkthrough of our house was tops and his home feature video made our house look amazing. I would highly recommend Vinicius Brasil for anyone looking to sell their home with a 5 star agent! Thank you Vinicius, we really appreciate everything that you have done for our family!"

"I worked with Vinicius to sell my house in Santa Clara, as I was relocating out of state. I was a bit concerned that I would be at a disadvantage selling from out of state, but he really put my mind at ease on that account during our initial consultation: he told me it would be no problem and he was right. The house needed some minor repairs, and I was really dreading having to deal with contractors to get that done, but Vinicius and his contacts got that taken care of quickly and efficiently without me having to lift a finger beyond letting the repair crew in the door while I was still living there. Vinicius also completely managed the pre-inspection and recommended some additional repairs based on that, all of which came in well below what I had originally been expecting. With that all done, the house sold within a week of listing, at a price I was happy with. When I was looking for selling agents, I was looking for someone that could just deal with everything so I wouldn't have to, and Vinicius definitely delivered on that!"

This review has been a long time coming but wanted everyone to know what a great experience I had using Vinicius Brasil expertise in selling my mom's home in Cupertino.  He had great ideas on what could be done for better return on investments. His excellent communication, negotiating skills and guidance helped make an overwhelming task of selling my family home less stressful. The staging team did a terrific job on making a 60 year old home look so chic and trendy.

Vini stepped us through every possibility we might come up against when selling our home. He explained all the pros and cons of what to upgrade and what not to. He explained the value of each upgrade and how to accomplish it financially. Our home was one with small square footage. But with the upgrades and his group of professionals the staging made the house a show piece. We are deeply and sincerely grateful for his guidance and knowledge. My husband and myself will continue to recommend Vini to any and all who wish to buy or sell a home on the Bay Area.

Vinicius helped us sell our Santa Clara condo and he exceeded all our expectations. We interviewed few agents before finalizing with Vinicius due to his knowledge of Santa Clara as well as extensive reach of his portfolio. He made it simple and not stressful. The staging made my home look fabulous and we were able to get many offers and sell for $150,000 over list price in one week. We highly recommend Vinicius as an extremely professional agent to work with. Vinicius is ultimate expert in bay area real estate market and we plan to utilize his (and his team, Thomas Feng) services for our future needs. Good luck!

Vinicius helped us buy our current home in Santa Clara, CA last year off-market with the vision of remodeling it. It was just a simple and fabulous experience working with him and his team. Now that we have remodeled and settled into our new place, it was time to think whether we wanted to sell the old place or not (in Santa Clara). Vinicius was only person we contacted and he went through the pros and cons of selling our house based on our current situation and what we had planned for the future. We decided to sell the house and chose Vinicius as our representative. Vinicius just sold my Santa Clara home and I must say he exceeded all of our already high expectations. Vinicius came to the house and we made a list of things that needs to he renovated to make selling the house much earlier. We had our contractor do the work (Vinicius also provided a contractor's quote to do the job) but Vinicius handled all the materials, paint selection that made the house look great. Vinicius used to come often to ensure the work was done properly to his satisfaction. Vinicius and his team did the staging of the house and i have to say to that it is one of the best staging we have seen personally including 3-D view and drone picture capture of the neighborhood. He is extremely professional, great communicator, provided regular photo updates and much more. Vinicius worked with us to arrive a best possible listing price to maximize the traffic for agents and buyers. We had 23+ offers for the house and many more than 300K above asking price. Vinicius worked with us going through the buyers offers, conditions, financial situation to ensure that we accept the best possible offer. We closed the house in 25 days had the entire process was simple with us meeting the notary just once for the entire transaction time. We highly recommend Vinicius to anyone looking to sell or buy a home, as he is simply excellent to do business.

We had seen “Open House, by Vinicius Brasil” signs around our neighborhood for many years. He obviously seemed to be a top realtor in the area. About a year before we were planning to sell, we first met Vinicius at an open house two doors down from our house. He had staged the home nicely and he presented himself with quiet confidence. We asked him if he could come over to look at our house to see what he thought needed work to get ours ready to sell. He had some good ideas and said he normally does these sorts of upgrades when he sells a home. 9 months later we called him to start the process. He was always willing to talk and he pretty much got the ball rolling on the ‘remodel’. He suggested new countertops and painting the cabinets in the kitchen. A fresh paint job inside and outside transformed the house into a real beauty. He fixed up the landscaping to improve the curb appeal factor. We joked about not selling because it looked so nice. Anyway, the house was on the market for only one week. The one weekend open house saw a huge turnout, over 60 groups looking. Vinicius really knows how to get the word out. We had multiple offers the next week and got top dollar. We are extremely pleased with our realtor selection! Vinicius Brasil seems pretty quiet when you first meet him, but he really works hard and knows how to sell houses. We highly recommend him. Buying or selling, he knows the Santa Clara real estate. You won’t be sorry.

Vinicius has been my agent on two separate transactions, buy and sell side, and he's been fabulous. He's easy to work with, goes the extra mile, and has contacts on every side of the home improvement/maintenance spectrum to make buying or selling a house extremely simple. He's become a good friend,   even sharing a cup or dozen of coffee ;-) to just chat and catch up. We would highly recommend him!

We just sold our home with Vinicius and it was a great experience! He has a thorough knowledge of the Santa Clara market and understands what sells and how to optimize the sales price. Working with him was seamless and very, very easy. Since we are in the process of moving, he worked around all of our special needs (like keeping some furniture in the house for staging) and still produced a showroom product. Final result was that we sold our home within one week of listing and closed within 20 days of offer acceptance. Oh, I forgot to say that we listed our house on the high end of the scale and sold for $250K over asking. I can't recommend his advice, calm approach and execution more than enough! If you want to work with the ultimate professional, work with Vinicius.

Vini was (and is) great. We sold a modest home in Santa Clara in late 2017 in a crazy market. My wife and I interviewed four realtors before choosing Vini. The choice was made based on 1) local knowledge, 2) ability to reach the widest market (including Indian & Asian), 3) probability to successfully turn outreach to interest, 4) marketing (some of the above and staging), 5) perceived ability to negotiate (clever ideas and tactics), and 6) personality. In Santa Clara there are a lot of great realtors and the competition was very stiff. We ended up choosing Vini because he was as good as others in all categories and better in local knowledge, marketing and negotiation. He did not disappoint. Extremely responsive and knowledgeable. While the market was a bit crazy, we think he obtained the best price possible in the shortest time. It sold for approximately 21% over asking (a reasonable asking price, given market conditions at the time) in ten days. Great experience, great realtor.

When we first met Vinnie, we were trying to figure out what to do. We recently retired and had already paid off our current home. Should we keep the house, rent it and move or sell? We met with Vinnie and a few other realtors. Vinnie showed up prepared, with market data on rentals, sales, etc. The others stopped by and offered casual conversation. Needless to say, Vinnie made the best first impression. After considering our situation and objectives, we decided to sell. Not only did Vinnie help us through all the steps in this process, he also helped us upgrade our kitchen. We had ideas for a relatively small renovation. We spoke with a number of contractors – at least those who responded – and came to the conclusion that nobody wanted to work with us on such a small project. Vinnie stepped in with contractors he works with frequently and helped us remodel within budget and on time. With the kitchen finished, Vinnie swung into action with his marketing campaign. He brought in stagers, created a beautiful portfolio of pictures, and carefully timed when our home appeared on the market. 10 days later, we sold at well over asking. It was a pleasure working with Vinnie and his team. We’re very happy we signed up with Vinnie and certain you will too!

Vinicius had great insights on how we should remodel our condo. He supervised the whole process to make sure everything was done right. He knew the area well and was well connected. My condo was sold 20% over asking and closed 2 weeks early. I would be happy to do business with Vinicius again.

Vinicius hit high positive notes in every category. Our house sold in 10 days and was well over the asking price. His marketing skills, including social media,  helped in getting our house before many eyes. The brochures, the staging, and the videos that included wonderful drone shots definitely enhanced the look and feel of the house. Vinicius noticed early on there was a discrepancy with the total square footage of the house and he worked to rectify the error which turned out to be a good catch that made a difference in the total value of the property in our favor. Vinicius is the real estate guy who knows how to get it done.

Vinicius is your go-to person if you want to sell your property in this area! We needed to sell our before we can purchase our next one. Vinicius and his team helped us get ready for the open house very quickly -and also is very patient to answer us any questions and guided us through the selling process. Thumbs up!

Vinicius was referred to me by a friend who had just sold his house in Santa Clara and came very highly recommended. To be honest, I was a little worried that Vinicius wouldn't be the best choice for selling my modest home in South San Jose. After all, he is the "Santa Clara Real Estate Guy".
After interviewing three other agents, including a "local expert" who considers my neighborhood their "backyard", I decided to go with Mr. Brasil. And I'm very glad that I did. Why? In a word... value.
In the very competitive real estate market in Silicon Valley, selling a home is fairly easy and I found that most of the real estate agents I interviewed were complacent. A lot of them didn't think we needed to stage the home, do a video, have a nice handout or perform mild updates to get the best offers for my home. That didn't make sense to me. Vinicius offered all of these services to us in the listing for no extra cost. Not only were they included, but the quality of the work was exceptional and very timely. I felt that the offer we accepted over asking was a direct result of the extra effort that Vinicius' team expended. In closing, Vinicius Brasil has my highest recommendation and I think you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone else that offers as much value, professionalism and personal attention to your listing.

Vinicius recommended several upgrades to our home and I took  his advise. I recommend you do the same. He can recommend a crew for upgrades to your home. I did use his recommended contractors and they did an amazing job.  I not only got the asking price, which I thought was higher than the house would sell for,  we got more than 10% over the asking price.  All of this was done in the summer.  People say the market is slow in the summer but you wouldn't know it by what happened for us. Multiple offers, all over the asking price. Seriously, if you are in the market to sell or buy, use Vinicius and you will be more than satisfied.  He truly is the Santa Clara Real Estate Guy

First of all he is a great person.  Easy to talk with, straightforward and honest.  His suggestions on how to prepare the house were very helpful.  We invested 22k and got 120k more in our final sale.  He handle all the details and workers.  Turned out great.

My husband and I  interviewed 6 Real Estate Agent/Brokers and Vinicius and his team offered the best overall package.  Vinicius took charge and we never had to worry about anything. We were kept informed every step of the way.  We have already recommended him to our friends and family-- just in   case they know someone who wants to get top dollar for their house. We strongly believe we chose the correct agent for us. He is not called the Real Estate Guy for nothing!!

Given my experience with Vinicius Brasil, I give my highest recommendation as he assisted me in selling my property. The questions I may have had at the time were addressed in a timely manner, especially with the situation I was in. My property being sold was a rental property and with his charismatic personality, it was a smooth process in regards to communication with the tenants. if ever put in the position of selling or purchasing another property. i will be sure to give Mr: Brasil a call.

Vinicius is a very astute Realtor and he is backed by a super admin team. We are so happy that we chose him to sell our Santa Clara property (2509 Hayward Dr). He provided very wise counsel on positioning and pricing. We recommend Vinicius with-out any hesitation.

"My wife and I recently bought our first house with Vinicius. We met him by chance when we stepped into a house he was selling. We were so impressed by his honesty that we decided we want to work with him as our agent.

Vinicius is one of the most honest persons I have ever met. We saw dozens of houses with him and spent long hours during long night phone calls trying to make up our mind whether to buy a specific house or not. Each conversation with him was a pleasure and educational since he knows so much about the bay area and the different neighborhoods in each city. Other than that he is also very knowledgeable regarding renovations fixes and costs that might come to play after you buy a house. And he always considers those things before giving his candid opinion on a house. We looked for the right house with him for close to 5 months and he was always very patient and never tried to push us to a deal. Vinicius was always (and still is:-) available during the whole process and I see him today much more as my friend then a realtor. Vinicius is highly regarded (from my experience) by other realtors in the area. I have already recommended him to friends of mine and definitely will recommend him to anyone else!!!"
