Helping my clients as a trusted advisor in their real estate needs from the beginning to the end of the transaction is just part of my goal. I strive to be their agent for life!
I have lived in Lynchburg, Va all my life and my husband and I have raised three wonderful children here. My husband and I have ran an electrical contracting company for many years and we believe in putting our clients first. I have also put this practice in place in my real estate business.
I care about people and their needs. I take care of all the details and take great pride in finding the property that is right for my clients. I am a trusted advisor to my clients and I like to become their REALTOR for life. My relationship with them goes pass the closing table.
Earning the Graduate, REALTOR Institute, GRI designation has provided me with the advanced marketing knowledge required to sell homes faster, and for more money in today's competitive marketplace.
Earning the Accredited Buyer Representative designation has provided me with the tools to protect my clients' best interest. Of all licensee's, fewer than 2 percent are Accredited Buyer Representatives (ABR).
A graduate of the Dale Carnegie Institute has enabled me to work with clients needs and put them first in the buying/selling transaction.
Studying for my Broker Licensee this year was very rewarding. There were times that I didn't think I would ever get through the classes and the homework and testing. But my goals was to have my brokers license, and now that goal is reality. I think a professional needs to always be studying and furthering their education to better serve their client's needs.
Areas of Expertise
I love to work with first time home buyers. It is such a thrill to help them find their first home. They take more time and in a lot of cases need more attention with the details but I thrieve on being their trusted advisor throughout the process. I also enjoy working with senior citizens as they need help downsizing. If a client is looking to buy a second home, I have connections at Myrtle Beach that can help them find what they need.

"Thanks for selling our home so quickly! And for finding us a new home at the same time. We couldn't have had an easier transition to our new home. You were available to us when we needed and that means a lot". Joey and April
"Everything went very smooth and all parties involved performed their jobs with the utmost professionism. I had a very positive experience. Great work with you, Brenda." Ruth
"It was a pleasure doing busines with you. We found you to be very informative, cheerful and extremely helpful" Marc & Louise
"Brenda was an exceptional agent. From very little information as to what I wanted, she was still able to come up with an impressive list of properties to show me that "fit the bill". It made for a productive weekend (which was all I had) and I had a contract in place as I drove home! After the contract her help was invaluable, as I had to handle things at a long distance away. She did those extras that ensured my loyalty - I'd highly recommend her"!
