Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
"Brenda is a superstar! I used her as a buyer's agent. The seller's agent was unprofessional (tried to contact me directly, etc.). The sellers had some odd requests (wanted to postpone the closing date so that a relative could visit, etc.). She handled it all flawlessly. She was on the ball in regards to making sure that everything stayed on track such as the fire department smoke detector inspection, etc."
Darrell S., August 2019
"Brenda, her support team and infrastructure were instrumental in the complex sale of 2 condo units simultaneously as one transaction. She has a tremendous knowledge of the market and industry and is extremely responsive to all matters. We highly recommend her for anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home."
Bob P., July 2019
"I really hit the jackpot when Zillow paired me up with Brenda. She is smart, savvy, patient, efficient, and honest. As a long-time renter, I went into this process knowing nothing and unaware if buying was even feasible. Brenda guided me through everything and recommended a great lawyer and mortgage broker. She spent the time necessary to understand what I wanted and how that aligned with my budget and the market. Brenda was very direct in telling me why properties were priced a certain way and whether they were worthwhile for my particular needs. It's easy for first-time buyers like me with modest income to feel crowded out by the investors and 1%-ers who drop half a million in cash without batting an eye. Brenda treated me with respect and helped me get a beautiful condo in the town I wanted. It was also a huge bonus that Brenda is a professional musician like me!"

"Brenda helped us buy our first house, so we were confident in her professionalism and knowledge of purchasing our second house. She is very responsive and reliable, and she was able to get us the best offer. At the time, we were only casually looking at homes, but once we found one we fell in love with, we contacted Brenda last minute. She responded within minutes and was able to help us during the entire process while working with our difficult schedules. Brenda is amazing to work with, and not only did we recommend her to our other friends, we would definitely recommend Brenda to anyone else looking for an agent."
S. Chang, April 2019
"Brenda was highly effective in helping us complete an out-of-state move on a compressed timeline. She was extremely responsive from the start, and her local knowledge combined with thoughtfulness about our particular circumstance (work locations, commute timing, kids' needs, etc) resulted in an efficient and successful weekend of showings. Once we were ready to make an offer, it was especially helpful that Brenda is well-connected within the Newton market: we had the information we needed to make a reasonable offer to win the deal. I will recommend her to others, and I'll be thrilled to work with her again down the road!"
Kendal C., January 2019
"Brenda went above and beyond to find me the perfect home. I never expected such professional, attentive and efficient service. Even AFTER the successful purchase Brenda went out of her way to help with finishing details. She is assertive, compassionate and puts her clients first! Highly recommend. Thank you, Brenda!"

We found out about Brenda reading reviews online like this one as we started the house search on our own through Zillow. We decided to work with her based on all of the prior stellar reviews, and looking back, this is probably one of the best decisions we could have made in this housing search process. Having an amazing realtor to work with makes a huge difference. She guided us all the way through a season of exploring different houses, finding the ones we liked, ultimately making an offer, inspection, and finally closing (and also beyond closing). We were always impressed with her fund of knowledge, her communication skills, professionalism, patience and accessibility. She was really a guide for us in the complete sense of the word, and helped us every step of the way. We learned a lot from her as she helped us figure out what we were interested in, and protected us while navigating several hiccups along the road to closing.
We have interacted with several brokers in Newton/Brookline through this process, and the best endorsement we can give is that we would undoubtedly seek Brenda out again if we ever need to buy or sell another home. We place a lot of emphasis on professionalism and consider ourselves pretty picky on a lot of aspects, and we have to say that Brenda always exceeded our expectations in ways that we could not have anticipated. It is further testament to her, though, that she is so good at her job and matching families and homes, that we don't see ourselves moving anytime soon!
William L., November 2018
"We really appreciated her insights in the neighborhoods we were looking at and her grasp of what we were looking for (pretty unusual condo with no stairs but not in a large complex). She helped us look at things that were close-but-no-cigar but never tried to push us to buy, and eventually helped negotiate a price drop on the perfect place to get it just into our price range. She's an expert and easy to talk to."
Myra F., October 2018
"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."
Albert G., October 2018
"My husband and I were buying a small house for our daughter. Brenda showed us the perfect home for our daughter one morning: we went for lunch and put it an offer that day! Sadly we were overbid on that one but within 3 weeks we found another perfect fit for Courtney and her dog and we were successful. Brenda responded Immediately to every call we made, guided us through the P&S and Tended to the closing with a recommendation of a reputable lawyer. Very professional and efficient plus knowledge of locales."
