Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
"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!"

"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 the value of a professional realtor, and we feel that your commission was well earned. We enjoyed working with you and are glad to have chosen you and Hammond for this mission. I believe my mother would have been very pleased by the result."

"As first time home buyers, we were very nervous about the purchasing process and finding the right home for the right price in such a competitive market (Newton, MA). Fortunately, we were able to find Brenda at an open house (she was representing the seller at the time). We could tell during the open house that Brenda was very professional, intelligent, and organized, which is what really attracted us to her. Unfortunately, our offer wasn't strong enough to land the house, however, we decided that Brenda was the agent we needed to find our perfect home. While working with Brenda, it was clear that she truly cares about her clients and is always open and honest. She was very responsive and knowledgeable to any questions we had. It was comforting to know that we were in such good hands during the purchasing process. We truly appreciate her help and feel so fortunate to have her as our agent! If you're looking for an agent who is knowledgeable and offers great advice, we strongly recommended Brenda!"

"I have worked with Mrs. van der Merwe for the past four months on the sale of my home in Newton Center, MA, which is a suburb to Boston. I can tell you that she is the most professional and thorough person in Any profession or capacity that I have worked with. How can I say this after only four months? She sold my home within the first two weeks of having the listing and I was an out-of-town owner! In addition to this, after the sale she either helped me Directly, or she actually oversaw the details of the buyer’s having access to see the house for details having to do with their future plans, helping me to bring the house up to state fire-code laws which were required for the closing, assisting me with finding someone to help with the sale of the contents of the house, going to the house when there was confusion about who was supposed to be doing what and when and I was in a state over a 3 hour flight away. Anytime I needed something I did not hesitate to call Ms. van der Merwe because I Knew that she would not hesitate to assist in any way that she could and with the best attitude and capability with which I have rarely had the opportunity to work."

"If you are looking for a wonderful real estate agent, stop looking - you found her! I cannot say enough about Brenda's professionalism, responsiveness and great advice. She was tremendously helpful in all aspects of this experience, from getting the property ready for sale through closing. Our property sold very quickly (within days) at a great price and I had multiple choices of good buyers. Brenda gave very sage advice as to how to navigate them all. Plus, she is just so nice that's she's always a pleasure to work with!! In short, she converted a potentially very difficult time into a seemless, painless experience. I highly recommend her."

"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."
