Disgruntled Brix Buyer Blogs It All

Someone seems to be quite upset about Brix as they’ve started the blog, Brix Condos Suck:

First of all, who am I to completely and utterly lambaste Brix Condominiums (ahem…recount my own experiences and opinions)???

Well, a short while ago, my wife and I finally washed our hands of the project as we suffered the loss of our down payment on a 10th Avenue loft home unit, after months of lawyering, letter writing, and general finagling.

Sadly, they don’t even have the distinction of being the first disgruntled person associated with Brix to take to the blogs.

I’m curious to see if the blog is going to be more than a two post affair.

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at matt@urbnlivn.com, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    It's too bad that some folks have bad experiences. I live here and love it – no complaints.

    I too bought at Brix, and while I concur with some of build quality concerns (I'm in the Broadway building), I'm very pleased to be living here. Some of the complaints in the blog read like sour grapes, frankly, as some of the points raised (e.g. HOA dues relative to the lack of amenities) should not have been a surprise to anyone having read the contract and familiarized themselves with the project.

    Without clicking thru to their blog can I wager a guess that it is basically a “we thought we'd buy at the very tip of the real estate bubble and still be able to make money but didn't and thus are now disgruntled and coming up with ways to blame the developer” type rant?
