This was my first time utilizing the services of a real estate professional.
I am extremely satisfied with the assistance I received from Brenda. She made the whole process of finding a home and negotiations easier for me to understand. There were a number of places for sale and when I explained to her what my preferences were and my financing options she helped me find a place that suited me. I feel she went above and beyond as I could not attend the closing and she was there for me from beginning to the end of the whole process. she dealt with the closing for me.shalee36
