"Brenda is THE best real estate agent I know. With her great knowledge and patience, Brenda helped me find my ideal condo and guided me through the whole process of buying. She knows exactly what is going on in the market and always meets my needs responsively, many times even without me saying it.

"I would unconditionally recommend Brenda van der Merwe. I've known her for 6 years and would not consider working with anyone else. I've worked with Brenda since buying my first property - she was very professional, had answers to all my questions, was extraordinarily patient and really impressed me with her calm personality, and thorough knowledge of the business. I really felt at all times that she had my best interests at heart. Since that first property, [...]

"My wife and I, along with my brothers, would like to thank you for acting as our agent in the successful sale of my mother's house over the past year - a job which turned out to be more involved and undoubtedly more frustrating than any of us anticipated at the start. We were impressed by your dedication to achieving a sale, with at least 18 open houses and 32 private showings before a serious buyer was found. The intricacies and complexities of this transaction made us appreciate [...]

Walter and Brenda Y., April 2017
"Brenda was fantastic to work with. She was extremely knowledgeable about the Boston neighborhoods down to the zip code. We were first time home buyers and Brenda was extremely helpful in answering all questions and walking us through the complicated and sometimes overwhelming steps of purchasing our first home."
Zeba J. and Lenin L., July 2018
"Brenda has been a GREAT pleasure to work with! She is so professional and truly cares about her customers so much. Without her, we wouldn't have this chance to successfully purchase our house and enjoy it now. My whole family admire her professionalism and dedication in this process that makes our dream quickly come true! In our house purchasing process, she tries her best efforts to understand our needs, brings new opportunities to us based on her knowledge and expertise, [...]

"My husband and I worked with Brenda on our first home purchase. From the start, Brenda was extremely responsive, knowledgeable and professional. She knows so much about the neighborhoods, which was invaluable to us as we were moving from another state. We could not be happier that we chose Brenda as our real estate agent -- She truly went above and beyond to make sure not only that all of our questions and concerns were addressed but also pointed out considerations that would never [...]
