The short version of this post is: choose Bruce Gordon as your agent. I chose Bruce as my buyer’s agent after witnessing him in action as a seller’s agent. I was impressed by his forthcoming attitude and found him to be the most invested and knowledgeable seller’s agent I encountered in the preliminary stages of the home buying process. Bruce’s ability to notice potential problems with a house, explain them, and suggest options for a solution was invaluable as I began searching for a home with him as my agent. Once I found a house, Bruce facilitated everything smoothly, even when I came up against unexpected bumps. It was clear to me from the interactions among Bruce, the bank, and the seller’s agent that Bruce had built solid relationships with people across the industry. From Bruce’s recommendations for contractors, I could tell that he did indeed know the best deals in town. The contractors I spoke to also had immense respect for Bruce. Bruce Gordon knows his stuff and how to communicate it. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

It was a pleasure to work with Bruce. We were looking at houses in South Bend over a period of months. He is incredibly patient and personable and was completely focused on us finding a house that made us happy. I felt no pressure; he helped us refine our priorities. He is generous with his time and expertise.
Bruce knows all about the South Bend real estate market and all the neighborhoods. He knows the history and trends of each neighborhood. I learned quite a bit during this process.
I found Bruce to be exceptionally conscientious and professional. He answered our questions promptly and thoroughly. He advised us about things we had not considered.
Bruce’s hard work and calm, matter-of-fact demeanor made the escrow process go smoothly. He also gave us tips to make moving in easier. We are delighted with our new home.

The sale closed today! I have known Bruce for over forty years and this is the second time my family has used his expertise. Bruce made this so simple and easy. He doesn’t have to solve problems, he anticipates them so they never surface. He was so helpful through every step of the process. He is easy to reach, stays in touch and communicates everything clearly. He is a man of integrity and we all consider him to be our friend. We would never use anyone else.

Bruce represented us as our seller’s agent during the recent sale of our South Bend property. Our experience working with Bruce was excellent, particularly since we were trying to complete our sale from a distance. Bruce was incredibly responsive, going above and beyond on several occasions to ensure a successful outcome. I highly recommend working with Bruce.

When my wife and I (first time homebuyers) were searching for a realtor we intended to interview a few before deciding on one. Bruce was the first and last that we spoke to. We immediately knew he was the realtor for us. Here are the reasons why:
Ethical – Bruce was aware of our financial situation and could have used that information to push our deal through faster (and at a higher commission to himself) without us ever knowing otherwise. However, he did not do this. Instead he masterfully negotiated our purchase for us, at his expense of time and money, which ultimately saved us thousands. That level of service is rare.
Straight shooter – Bruce will tell you whether he thinks a home is a good purchase or not. His first priority is ensuring the buyer is happy with their home. This honesty and straightforwardness is important with what is likely one of the biggest purchases of your life. Notably, because Bruce also has experience in construction his knowledge level of homes and their potential problems is higher than average.
Availability – Bruce is going to handle your transaction himself. You will not be passed off to a team. He has many years of experience in the South Bend – Mishawaka – Granger – Osceola market. In my opinion this is advantageous over a team (who may or may not communicate well) approach.
Independence – When my wife and I were searching for a realtor Bruce being an independent business owner indicated two things to me. 1) He must be doing something right if he’s made it as an independent realtor for this long and 2) I knew there would be no potential conflict with a co-worker representing the other side of the transaction. This helped me sleep at night, knowing that our situation would handled confidentially.
Bruce is an excellent realtor. He is all substance and no flash. Use him. You will not be disappointed.

Bruce helped me purchase my first home, and I can’t say enough great things about him! He’s incredibly knowledgeable about houses both structurally and financially within the market. He will not pressure you to buy a home, rather he will critique every home he looks at with you so that you can make a better informed decision. He made the entire process of buying quite easy and streamlined, which I greatly appreciated since I’d never done it before.

Bruce gave us good advice about getting our house ready to sell and pricing it appropriately. He worked hard on our behalf to deal with inspections and the resulting repairs. Bruce also helped us negotiate a compromise with the buyer on the replacement of the furnace.

Working with Bruce was fantastic. I had already moved to another city and so left him to handle the entire situation. I had full trust that he would handle the entire process and he more than held up his end of the bargain. I’d recommend Bruce to anyone looking to see their house.
