Five Stars Across the Board

After looking at real estate in the Semiahmoo development in the town of Blaine, Washington for many years...we finally were able to make the move. Brenda was very professional in her expertise of the area and very knowledgeable of the current pricing and background of the area. With her help we are able to obtain a very attractive price on the property we purchased. She really took the time to prepare the offer to the sellers with a lot of pricing background. Her follow up during escrow, all the way to the end was great. We would highly recommend Brenda.

Brenda was Extremely Helpful

Brenda was extremely helpful, courteous, and patient in showing us around the neighborhood properties. When we decided to make Beachwalker Villas our second home 12 years ago, she handled all details in a highly professional and satisfactory manner. She was our first friend at Semiahmoo and helped us feel at home from the very beginning. We have recommended Brenda very highly to several friends who have become property owners at Semiahmoo and who have also been pleased with her services. We are delighted to be friends and satisfied clients of Brenda's. She gives selflessly of her time, charm and unique real estate talents.

A Proactive Professional Real Estate Agent

In one word Brenda is a proactive professional real estate agent. She anticipates your needs, shows you only properties that are relevant to your affordable "dream home", and negotiates aggressively for the best value. Our three transactions handled by Brenda have been complex. Nonetheless, she made the buying and selling of our properties seem simple and straightforward. I recommend Brenda without reservation; your own experience will prove her proactive professionalism.

Brenda demonstrated an intimate knowledge of the market...

When we decided to leave the Vail Valley, we wanted to find a resort area that provided a diversity of experiences while retaining a sense of smallness and simplicity. Through a relative who is in the real estate business, we were referred to Brenda. Over a period of a bout a year she hung in with us as we looked at what was on the market, what land was available and what the possibilities were. Brenda demonstrated an intimate knowledge of the market and the dynamics of the community. As a result, we selected a parcel of land and are now building a home in just the kind of place we had hoped to find a year earlier.

She was a joy to work with and a huge help!

Brenda worked closely with us while building our new home in Semiahmoo. Throughout the process she was knowledgeable and accessible at all times. Her seasoned eye for detail and experience helped us a lot in working through many complicated issues with our builder. She was a joy to work with and a huge help!

Brenda went far and above what we expected

Anyone who has bought more than one home will know that not all purchases or escrows are created equal. Toss in the added ingredient of making a purchase from afar, we were in California for 90% of this transaction, and your have the potential for disaster. We looked for several years to find the perfect place to settle for our retirement years. We finally found the perfect area in Semiahmoo. Not being familiar with the area, we needed to find a Realtor who would give us honest answers and who would represent us in manner that would keep us from becoming another victim of a builder in our search for the perfect home.

We met Brenda at an open house. We were impressed by her openness, her familiarity of the home she was showing, and especially her knowledge of the area. With her help we eventually found the shell of a dream home in the Aerie at Semiahmoo. The home was not finished so we had an opportunity to customize it.

Seldom does reality measure up to ones dreams, and our purchase experience certainly can be used as a testament to that. We encountered many bumps in the road. Had it not for the integrity, guts, and loyalty displayed by Brenda in representing us and looking out for our interests (and the backing she received from her company), I am afraid our dream may not have materialized.

Brenda recommended, what turned out to be one of the best escrow companies we have ever dealt with, preventing many potential problems. She helped us with everything from hotel reservations to getting the utilities turned on. Most importantly, she went to bat for us, big time, over issues that arose regarding the purchase contract and other issues dealing with the completion of the home, even at some personal expense, when some in her position may have left us hanging in the breeze. She remained in constant contact with us and kept us informed of every detail of the process. She went far above and beyond what we expected and eventually carried us through the purchase and escrow closing.

Any Realtor can do a fine job on a purchase that has no problems. But, we never know when problems will develop. It takes someone special to take on heavy problems and stand up for your rights as a buyer. If you want that special person to be on your team when you go into the purchase of a home, we highly recommend Brenda. We would be happy to discuss our experience further with anyone who may be interested.
