Ratings & Reviews

I called Brenda after receiving a recommendation from a work colleague. I was new to the area and had a specific timeline for finding a new home. Brenda was great to work with and extremely professional. I would recommend her to others looking for homes in the Lehigh Valley without hesitation. Brenda took time to explain the different phases of the home buying process as well as rules specific to the area, as this was our first time purchasing a home in Pennsylvania. She knew the neighborhoods well, was always reachable and punctual, and we ended the process very happy with a home we love. Whenever the time comes to sell (hopefully not for many years!), Brenda will be our first call.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Easton, PA.

Brenda is a highly motivated professional and her helpfulness and attention to detail are second to none. Brenda understood my requirements exceptionally well and was very patient and accomodating in showing me different properties. Her management of the purchasing process made my purchase extremely smooth and worry free.

Showed home in 2011.

I worked with Brenda on the selling end and the buying end and I would give her the highest of recommendations! When I was selling my last house, the buyer for my own home came in with a very short window whereby he wanted to get into my house. The pressure was on me to find a house within a short time frame. Brenda worked with me extensively that very first weekend, along with a few weeknights and I found my dream home. She is so knowledgeable, professional, courteous and kind. She helped me get through a very stressful time in my life.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $350K in Easton, PA.

Brenda is very professional and knowledgeable and so pleasant to work with. After a successful purchase of a home in PA for my husband and myself, we contacted Brenda again to help purchase homes for my parents, my stepson and my daughter. Giving her this repeat business certainly attests to our satisfaction.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $375K in Easton, PA.

Brenda helped us buy our first home in Pennsylvania and then when we had to move for a job change was very helpful and hard working to sell our house quickly. She was upfront with what we should expect from both processes and helped us when we hit any sort of snag or had a question about the transactions. She was also helpful with suggesting people she had knowledge of for mantinance of the house.

Bought a Single Family home in 1996 in Bethlehem, PA.

Listened to my needs, found exactly what I was looking for. Very pleasant personality. Best realtor I've worked with, ever. Hard to choose from the selections provided. I also have referred Brenda to friends both buying and selling. She sold my neighbors Townhouse over a weekend! She's the best.

Sold a home in 1992 in Spring Mills, Milford, NJ 08848.

Not sure who this other reviewer is, but their problem sounded like it was something that had little negotiating value. Having a wife in the business here in North Carolina, I know the complexities and frustration that comes with the real estate sales game...so there must be very good reasons why Brenda and her husband have had multiple repeat clients over the years. You can't continually be recognized as one of the top agents in the area if you aren't an intuitive and a superb negotiator. Brenda took on my mom's 53 year old ranch in Hunterdon County, empty, needed a new roof, had old plumbing, only 1700 square feet and with the original kitchen in just about the worst sales atmosphere imaginable...with similar houses sitting for 3 years, and closed it in under six months for only a fraction less than our original listed price. We had to sell "as is" since my 91 year old mother did not have the resources or energy to deal with tons of contingencies, and I was in NC. So it came down to sitting with Brenda and Dennis, looking at the market dynamic and landing on a reasonable price. This is where years of experience come into play, and Brenda was firm that to sell meant being realistic and willing to even come off our price maybe a little to avoid being nitpicked to death. So let it be said, she knocked it out of the park, mom was thrilled and the new owner was happy as well. Brenda is one of the most knowledgeable, cordial, prepared and savvy professionals with which I've ever worked. Cheers.

Showed home in 2012 in Bethlehem Township, PA.

Works with her husband as a type of tag team. She is a very pleasant person. Purchase did not work out because the seller messed up his house with a poorly constructed deck that couldn't pass inspection. I didn't feel that there was any attempt to push negotiation on my behalf.

My husband and I have been in the Real Estate business 19 years. During this Buyer's transaction it was necessary to switch off from time to time when working with this Buyer because of our schedules. We accommodated this Buyer with very little notice for every appointment. We negotiated this transaction to the Buyer's best interest. The Buyer chose to be released from this agreement. As the old saying goes, you can please all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but not all the people all the time!
