Ratings & Reviews

We chose Brenda to sell our house after interviewing three realtors. She was like a "breath of fresh air". She was kind, easy to talk to, treated us with respect and dignity, was always helpful with information and sales statistics, knew the market in Ames very thoroughly, worked as hard as any realtor we have ever dealt with, offered numerous ideas on staging, and did this all with a sense of helpfulness and friendship.<br/><br/>Moreover, we asked each realtor to provide us with an appraisal of our property. We told each realtor that we had done extensive background work ourselves. We asked Brenda to list our house at a higher price than any of the appraisals, which she did. Our house sold before it got listed and at a price that surprised us all, thanks to Brenda.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Nevada, IA.

Brenda took considerable time with me in assisting in my home search. My experience with Brenda was that she worked very well at understanding a buyer's specific interests in a home and delivered a number of available properties that fit the description. She worked very well with the seller's listing agent to facilitate the finalization of the purchase price and the closing. Brenda is one of the very best real estate agents I have ever worked with.

Sold a home in 2012 in Meadow Lane Mobile Home Park, Ames, IA 50010.

This is the first home purchase/sale I've navigated with Brenda, but I am not new to the process, it is my fourth home. Buying/selling is stressful and there are so many variables that can and do tend to come up. Hands down, this was the most seamless and least stressful experience on either end I have ever had. She seemed to appear from no where at all the right times, and did an amazing job of explaining the process, even at the times someone else might have assumed I knew, as I've been through the process before. I should also note that the home I wound up with was so far outside anything I ever would have even looked at online by myself, but her vision and forward thinking helped me land a whale of a deal on a house I am head over heels in love with. Brenda single handedly changed my perception of what a realtor can bring to the table, up to this point I was fairly convinced I was just paying a commission with little value attached other than a key to get in the door! Use her, you won't regret it. You will also be amazed to find that after the transaction is completely closed/finished, she's still around to help/offer assistance.
