Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
"This is the second time we worked with Brenda to buy a property. This time, we were simultaneously selling a property. There’s no way we could have done this without her. She arranged and prepared for us meetings with inspectors, attorneys and handymen. She asked the questions that needed to be asked and advocated for us at every stop of the way. On top of professionalism, her warmth and friendly nature endears her to us. She’s the best."
Lisa and T.J. K., August 2018
"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
"My husband and I live in England and were looking for a property in a specific area of Boston. We had never bought property in USA prior to this so felt nervous about the process and speed at which the market moves. I had been in contact with other agents but did not feel confident in the feedback I was getting. I stumbled across Brenda by replying to a property on line. From the first communication I could tell Brenda was professional and knowledgeable. She patiently and professionally answered my many questions before we committed to flying to Boston to view properties. Our time was limited but with Brenda's dedication and excellent organisation skills we were able to find and complete the various stages of the sale within a few weeks. My husband and I felt fortunate to have met Brenda and would highly recommend her."

"It was a real pleasure working with Brenda. She knows the market very well. It's pretty incredible how good she is with digging into the details while also being very responsive. If you are thinking about buying a place in the Greater Boston area, trust us, you want to work with Brenda."
Amit D., June 2018
"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 have occurred to us. We definitely highly recommend her!"

"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!"
Philip L., April 2018
"Brenda was a consummate professional in every aspect of our home-buying experience. Brenda's responsiveness, in particular, was much appreciated and assisted us greatly, as my wife and I needed to move very quickly. When we identified the home we really wanted, Brenda provided expert guidance as to the offer price and various closing contingencies. Further, Brenda's recommendations for counsel, home inspector, etc. were spot-on. We could not be happier with how everything turned out, and highly recommend Brenda!"
Patrick C., March 2018
"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 have pretty high standard and I can safely say she totally exceeds my expectation. She is also my agent for finding tenants. I trust her in all aspect of real estate transactions and I will not hesitate to have her as my agent in the future. I highly recommend Brenda to anyone who wants to know what a Five-Star real estate professional should be like."
Biao L., December 2017
"Brenda is an excellent Realtor. Her professionalism and hard work along the entire process highly contributed to the success closing. We hired her after a thorough research. We surveyed the local market and had interviews with several agents. Right from the first interaction, Brenda surpassed all her rivals. Her marketing presentation was impressive, both depth and width, she put a lot of work on getting all her facts straight. I remember our first conversation. It strucked me how accurated her prediction of the trends for the market had turned out to be. She had invested her time, money and effort with enormous generosity. She is an extremely pleasant person to deal with, very responsive and always on top of every detail. I have no doubt will be work with her again."
Belinda G, November 2017
"Our first move in 47 years was further complicated by my heart attack on the eve of moving date , and my wife had a stent. After open heart bypass I was in rehab. Brenda Van Der Merwe then assumed seller’s tasks and guided us along the process with professional expertise and personal sensitivity. She always apprised us of problems and solutions. She allayed our fears by keeping us informed all along the process. We are grateful to our son who recommended Brenda after assisting them in purchase of their condominium."
