Please let me tell you a little bit about who I am and how I got here.

When I left Cal Poly State University I had an education in broadcast journalism. I worked for 7 years in television as a sports anchor/reporter/photographer. During this time I met many interesting athletes from Barry Bonds to Jerry Rice. It was a lot of fun but I knew it was going to require a lot of moving from city to city as I worked my way up the ladder...

Brett Barnes is my hero! From the first meeting, Brett took his time and spent energy walking me through the scope of what he does to market your home, and why, as he explains how it benefits you. He makes his recommendations and he always puts you in a position to make informed decisions about selling or buying your home.He is old-school ethical, honest, trustworthy, professional, caring and worth every cent of the commissions he earns! He is new-school with marketing and technology and efficiencies that make the process easy and effective. Behind the scenes, which I never saw, but benefited from, he’s always negotiating on your behalf. Brett kept my and my family’s financial goals and needs in mind throughout every aspect of selling our home and buying our new home. Brett also surrounds himself with wonderful and helpful people who help take care of all the necessary details and keep you moving towards your goals in the most timely manner. I would whole-heartedly recommend Brett for any real estate transaction.Finally, I communicated with Brett at all hours of the day and sometimes night. This may be the best thing of all, I could never reach him for one hour during in the dinner hour because he was busy enjoying dinner with his own family. This is the type of realtor I want to handle my family’s most important decisions!

I recently used the Dudum Real Estate Group to sell my home that I owned for 34 years. This was an emotional experience. My agent Brett Barnes was excellent. He was very attentive and patient. I was thrilled when he closed on my home in thirty days at a great price. I highly recommend Dudum.

Brett was happy, kind, knowledgeable, honest, on time and helpful. I got everything I asked for and more. My last realtor was very flighty and did not explain parts of the process that were very important. Brett was calm when I was a little crazy and explained everything to me. He did a great job for me and now I am in a beautiful home in a great location.

My first impression of Brett is that he was all business, but after our initial meeting I soon learned Brett is a hard-working guy who can also have fun. Many agents like to keep you in the dark to buy more time, but Brett believes in transparency and the concept of sharing information. If you are looking in Concord, Pleasant Hill, or Walnut Creek , Brett is the man. Overall communication with both Brett & his assistant Pam, was timely and alert.


Candice & Kevin Tu

You were always accessible by phone, text, email, in person, etc. You were knowledgeable about the market and the timing of which to sell/buy. You were honest and frank with us. You tried to push hard for us even in a competitive market. You have a great, open communication. You are personable, and we can tell you put a lot of effort in what you to. “Two thumbs up” – Brett is a hardworking knowledgeable realtor who can help guide you through the process of buying/selling your house. He is quick to respond.


Brandon & Erika Imbriale

Extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Gave perspective and helped bring realistic expectations to home buying. Was determined to help us meet our goals. Our home buying experience caused us to refer anyone talking about buying a home to Brett. Brett is very knowledgeable and will really help people understand the home buying process who have never done it before. Overall we were happy with the buying process even though it was a short sale and it was very difficult. Brett was determined to help us get into what we hoped for.
