"Brenda did a wonderful job selling our Cambridge condo in record time and trouble-free. She made the whole process easy and worked closely with us to get the best offer. We have worked with her twice, representing us when we were buying a condo from a long distance, and recently selling, and we would not hesitate to recommend her for either. She is a dedicated and hard-working professional who will look after your best interests."
"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, [...]
We were so fortunate to have found Brenda van der Merwe when we moved to Newton. As our Realtor, she helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. The best part about working with Brenda was that she was always giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs. We would highly recommend her to anyone.
"I had the pleasure of working with Brenda for the sale of my condo in Brookline. At the time of the sale I was not living in Massachusetts, Brenda helped with many of the details that I was not able to deal with because of the distance. The sale was fast and smooth. She did a great job and I would highly recommend Brenda to help you sell or buy a condo or house in the Boston area."
"Brenda was a great asset to us as we moved from Chicago to Boston. We needed to decide quickly where we would settle our family in the greater Boston area. Brenda was most knowledgeable, resourceful, and patient. She truly listened to our priorities and responded accordingly with the properties she showed us. Brenda goes the "extra mile" to make it all happen. We are very grateful and would use her services again without a doubt!"
"Brenda did an incredible job selling our Brookline condo and helping us find a new home. She proved she has a great deal of industry knowledge and experience and this made the process far simpler. She also did a great job coming up with a strategy to get us the very best offer for our condo. And lastly, it was a pleasure to work with her - great listener and communicator. We highly recommend her for anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home."
"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, [...]
"This is my second time working with Brenda as she had initially helped with finding a rental. We enjoyed working with her so much we engaged with her to purchase a house in the same area. It was a pleasure to work through this process with Brenda and she made it much easier than it otherwise would have been. Her knowledge, not only from a Realtor perspective, but also about Massachusetts law was immeasurably helpful. Brenda proactively managed the relationship with the seller and [...]
"We had a great experience with Brenda. She was hardworking and extremely responsive. It was enjoyable to work with her. We are happy with our condo. Thanks!"
"Brenda is an exceptionally professional broker. She has a tremendous knowledge of the market and the industry. She has a network of tradesmen--such as plumbers, contractors and moving/downsizing experts--that helped us. She has a very calm demeanor, she never exerts undue pressure, and is highly honest and ethical. Working with her was a pleasure."
