Brian was born in Zanesville, Ohio, east of Columbus and moved to Naperville, Illinois, during his middle school years. After graduating from Western Illinois University with a B.A. in Mass Communications, he began working as a newspaper reporter for the Macomb Journal for a year before going to work for the Daily Herald.
A few years later, he moved to Chicago and worked at Bank of America for 13 years. His last position was as a Senior Operations Collateral Analyst. After relocating to Charlotte, North Carolina, in 2012, he wanted a change in career, and with his interest in real estate it was a natural fit.
Brian lives in the SouthPark area with his wife, Hayley, and two daughters. He enjoys running, working out and sports. Brian and his wife enjoy traveling and list Greece, Spain and Argentina as some of their favorite countries to visit.
"Brian is great to work with! He helped us find our rental when we first move to Charlotte and we really liked working with him so used him to help us buy a home here. He has a great approach in giving us the facts, answering our questions (and getting them answered by the other realtor if it wasn't something he knew), but not pressuring us one way or the other based on this information. He was also extremely helpful in the negotiation process in getting quotes from vendors on inspection items for our purchase. His referrals to a mortgage broker and attorney were great as well! Lastly, his responsiveness is unmatched!" - Danielle G.
"What can I say, had one of the best agents around Brian Hosey...simply can't give this guy enough stars! My family was making an overseas move from Asia to Charlotte and Brian made the transition all that much easier. It started months before I had a firm date of the move, Brian began searching and emailing me properties and neighborhood information. Then when I came out he drove me around all weekend to show me house after house. Finally, when our move date was finalized and my wife came out to house hunt, Brian cleared his schedule to show her an obscene amount of homes! His patience and commitment was second to none! When we found the house of our dreams, Brian worked with me remotely over long distance calls, text messages and emails and even helped to introduce me to a number of lenders and attorneys. Overall, he helped to make the home buying process smooth and easy even from 8,000 miles away! Thanks again Brian for your hard work!" - Mike S.
"My husband Mark and I recently had the distinct pleasure of working with Brian Hosey. We had our home on Zillow as a FSBO and Brian brought his clients to see our home and 5.8 acre property. From the very beginning Brian met each part of the journey to closing with professionalism, knowledge and humor. When the inevitable challenges came along, he handled them with ease and a very positive attitude. He put everyone involved at ease and was ready to give his all to get to the goal of getting our home sold. We are happy with the outcome and will be recommending Brian to our friends. He is definitely an asset to your team and company. We can't say enough good things about him." - Wendy & Mark R.
"I look forward to recommending Brian to anyone looking for a new home! Brian was referred to me by a current co-worker and I knew from meeting him he was great to work with. Brian was excellent in answering all of my questions (which I had a ton as a first time home buyer). I had a great experience with Brian. I just can't thank him enough for the effort and flexibility he provided to us throughout the process. He answered every call, email, text immediately, day or night. I felt like he did so many things to make the process easy for us that I can't name them all." - Bill J.
