Though extremely business savvy, Bret is first and foremost a genuine person. “I will, and have always, done whatever it takes to make my customers happy. Whether preparing a cup of cappuccino exactly how they liked it or finding the perfect home in a community they covet, I find a way to fulfill my customers wants and desires.”
