His firms hav e used this expertise in the Charlotte market to create win-win-win (buyer-seller-agent) solutions. He has written extensively about lease options and property management, and was a featured speaker for the Realtor Magazine’s presentation of “Putting Together Lease Option Deals That Pay.”

Brett’s first book, “How to Rent-To-Sell Your Own Home”, detailed innovative techniques to help homeowners sell in a difficult economy. His second book, “Rent-To-Own & Rent-To-Sell: A Complete Guide”, is geared towards helping real estate professionals (specifically real estate agents and property managers) work profitably with today’s new breeds of client: buyer tenants who can’t qualify to purchase right away and homeowners who need a new solution to sell their homes (rent-to-sell).

Personally, Mr. Furniss lives in Charlotte with his wife and two children and enjoys playing basketball, writing, hiking, reading, and traveling.
