"Dear Jim and Heidi,
Thank you for your time and dedication in helping us successfully close on the purchase of our MGM Signature Suites Condo. Your team has really taken good care of us and helped us every step of the way. From the initial contact to your office with Emily and Berna setting up an appointment with Jim with very little notice. Jim meeting with us personally and showing us different units, to Heidi meeting with us for the walk-thru inspection. You also ensured that we got great service from escrow and title! You are the best and we look forward to doing another deal in the future. In the meantime, we will definitely be referring you to our friends! Thank you again and may God Bless you, your wonderful team and your business always!
The Garcia's Very satisfied clients." -2/6/13
"Thank you very much for your hard work and for making this a smooth and quick closing. I will definitely refer all my friends and family to you.
-Best Regards, Jeff Kotel" -1/14/13
"It was a pleasure working with Brooks and Associates. Heidi was very professional in her approach are all the way through the end. She kept the lines of communication open between us and the buyer which allowed the sale of our house to be a smooth one. Heidi is always lookout for the best interest. She is someone we will use again when it's time to purchase another home. Thank you so much."

“I can’t say enough about how flawlessly the entire process of selling my property thru Brooks and Associates was. My property received a bid I accepted within 1 week and closed earlier than I expected too. I give Heidi and the rest of her team 5 stars for the professional way they treated my me and how quickly they were able to unload my property for a great price. I highly recommend using Brooks and Associates for your real estate needs. They work hard and get the job done. Bottom line.”

“I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your help in the short sale of my Signature unit at the MGM Grand. Having been a real estate Broker in California for over 20 years, I have dealt with virtually thousands of Real Estate “Professionals”. While I have helped others in similar situations over the years, I had never been so personally affected by the economy and never dreamed I would be a principal in a short sale. In owning over 50 properties in the last 30 years, I have never once been late on a payment and had virtually perfect credit. Needless to say, this has been a very emotionally difficult time for me. Jim, you and your staff, Emily, Debbie and the rest, were helpful, thoughtful, timely, caring and the most professional group of people I have had the pleasure to deal with in any circumstance. You guys made a difficult situation, about as painless as one could hope for. Again, thank you Jim, especially you, for always being there and never being too busy to get back to me. You and your staff are the true professionals.
- Successful Tower 2 Short Sale Seller
“We recently closed on a short sale at the MGM Grand Signature Towers, this thing was far from “short”, it took almost 12 months. This market environment is crazy and can be very frustrating for all involved, however the pros at Brooks and Associates facilitated this with calm and professional ease! I have been in the business for almost 17 years, run a successful Real Estate practice, Real Estate School, and Real Estate Investment and Advisory firm, it’s been a long time since I can sing praise about another group of professionals, but I am so impressed by Brooks and Associates. Simply the best! We are looking to purchase several more units now and will only call Brooks and Associates….Jim, Emily, Heidi…….THANKS!!!!
- Dee, MGM Signature Owner and Buyer
From our initial meeting with Jim Brooks, to the conclusion of the short sale, my partners and I have been truly amazed at the knowledge, expertise and professional service that Jim and his entire staff have provided us. We were very uneasy about entering into the process, but the folks at Brooks and Associates went out of their way to ease the strain, directing us through a difficult time. The result that we wanted, was exactly the result that was achieved. We couldn't be happier that we chose Jim's group to handle our short sale, and we would highly recommend them to anyone who asked. Thanks to Jim, Emily and Heidi for everything that you have done for us.”
- Tower 2 Successful Short Seller
"Thank You" for the wonderful job you folks did in getting our MGM unit sold. Your pricing advice was sound. Your performance was exemplary. And, you got the job done with a minimum of hassle or difficulty for us. It's great to work with folks who not only understand the market, but can deal with its reality.
-Steve Bottfeld, Successful Tower 1 Seller
“I wanted to take the time to let your company know how pleased we were to have had you guys on our side during our short sale. From the first day we called until the short sale recorded, your office was always in contact with us. There was never a time that we had to do all the calling or follow up with the banks. As soon as the bank began to call us because we missed the payments, we told them we were in contract with your company to sell the unit and the calls stopped. There were so many realtors to choose from out in Las Vegas, and we were in California. We chose Jim Brooks because of the short sale success his office has. His staff took the time initially on the phone to talk with us and let us know everything would be alright and they had a plan. We took a chance, and it paid off! We successfully negotiated the short sale! Special thanks to Heidi Williams and Emily Armstrong for keeping us updated and making us feel we were number one!”
- Former Tower 2 Owner
"I would recommend Jim Brooks very highly to anyone wishing to sell or buy property in Las Vegas. He always puts his clients first and it definitely showed throughout the entire escrow process. Jim will also maximize your investment and he has surrounded himself with a great team that will minimize your effort. He is professional, knowledgeable, reliable, and very well connected with other realtors in the area."
