"Brenna was fantastic, simply the best experience with her.

Very insightful and honest. Provided critical opinions when asked, openly shared her opinions while remaining aware of our wants/needs. Great communicator and educator. Seemed to know the market well. She seemed busy which is expected for a working mom and the busy market, but still we always felt she was available and she never let anything slip."

Joanna J

"Our home selling experience was surprisingly stress free during a time that every day brings something crazy.

I credit Brenna Fahlin for being the absolute perfect blend of professionalism and knowledge ability. Brenna was extremely patient during our process as we did think a little unconventional. Brenna's top-notch advice and straight forward honesty put us in a position in which we were able to receive multiple offers over asking price the first day of the listing! Brenna knows what she is doing, I feel extremely lucky to have her during this process. I honestly don't think anyone could have done it better. "

Justin P

"Brenna was absolutely amazing!

!! She was our rock through this crazy market. I'm so glad she was recommended to us by many friends who had her as a real estate agent in the past. She taught us so much about what to look for in a home and always had our best interest in mind. Her great relationships with fellow real estate agents in the area made sure we were always able to see homes we were interested in, and any questions we had answered. In the end she landed us the house of our dreams and we couldn't be happier! "

Bailey A

"Brenna was an incredible resource throughout our home selling process.

She is extremely knowledgeable in the northland area, which was super helpful when deciding where to live. Brenna was easy to reach and always willing to answer our questions throughout the whole process. Being first time gone buyers, we had a lot of questions and we appreciated Brenna’s knowledge and expertise. Brenna made this process smooth and enjoyable. "

W.P.

"Cannot speak highly enough about Brenna.

We have had dealings with other real estate companies and agents in the past with our previous home purchase and sale, and she blew them out of the water. Not only was she very knowledgeable about the area, but she also recommended great options for inspection, home loan, insurance, and title company. She fought for us getting items fixed or taken care of before the home closing, and even checked up on them before closing and got them to clean the carpet again (did a poor job still smelled like dog). Even when we did the initial walkthrough during an open house, she got back to us AND got into the house the same day (after open house was closed) to look at it. She was honest and told us we can find another like it eventually or wait for them to lower the price. Did not push the sale. I cannot share enough in this format to express how happy we were and still are with Brenna. She still answers questions and is helpful even after the fact. Way above and beyond, could not ask for anything better or anything else. She is a model all real estate agents should aspire to emulate."

J.P.

"Excellent first home buying experience.

Brenna was engaged and very helpful throughout the entire process. Whenever I had questions or concerns, she was very quick to answer or give me feedback and the whole experience was very positive. I had recommended her through several friends who worked with her or knew of her, and I will be the first to recommend her to others. Absolutely superlative."

Freddie P

"We would recommend Brenna to anyone who is buying or selling.

Her approach is professional, and she works hard during the entire process. Thank you!"

D.B.

"Brenna was the best.

This was my first house and I’m not easy to work with. She handled everything very professionally and took the time to explain things to me and calm me down when I’d get worked up. She by far is the best"

D.S.

"Brenna went abate and beyond what would normally be expected from her.

"

J.M.

"We had the best experience I could have asked for.

However, we almost passed Brenna up for another agent because she didn't say she would include a staging consult, even though she ended up doing that. Just because we didn't know that up front, we almost went with someone else."

A.G.

"Brenna was great!

She was so personable and knowledgeable; we were taken care of from start to finish. She came highly recommended by a coworker and she outshined our expectations! "

Deborah S

"Brenna is fantastic!

She spent countless hours helping us find a home. She was very patient, understanding, and knowledgeable about the entire process. The way she walks you through a house is really helpful. She will point out things you would never think to look for. She is super easy to get along with and we were always so comfortable with her. She was incredibly helpful when it came to making offers and negotiations. Brenna was definitely the right choice for us, we truly enjoyed working with her. Thank you, Brenna!!! "

"Brenna spent time with us advising how best to present the house and how to point out features that might not be obvious to a potential buyer.

Additionally, she was very helpful in coordinating with our purchase agent out of state to make sure that needed documents were available. She is very personable and a good listener."

M.H.

"Brenna was the absolute best realtor for us.

She quickly got to know us and learned exactly what we were looking for, ending up finding us the perfect home. She was always open to answering any of our questions and had great resources and information to share. She was a great communicator, organized, and we never felt any pressure. We could tell she was always on our team and was looking out for us! Thanks again Brenna!"

"We used Brenna when we purchased our home 4 years ago.

I had several different offers and helped me understand the process so that I could make an informed decision. I really appreciated her availability and that she spent time with me to help me. I was able to sell my house for 13% more than I was asking, and it sold in about a week. I would and have recommended Brenna to my friends and others. "

"Brenna is an incredible agent worthy of the highest praise.

This was our second opportunity to work with her, as she represented us on the sale of our home a year ago. She was very knowledgeable and approachable with all of our questions.

It has been a great pleasure with Brenna and I will hands down continue to recommend her to any of my friends or colleagues looking to buy or sell a home in the area."

Shirley M

"I do not have enough great things to say about Brenna Fahlin!

We started our home search right at the beginning of the market taking a turnaround April/May of 2020. My husband and I were looking to sell our current home and purchase something larger for our growing family. We thought it might take a month or two and never anticipated finding our perfect home and getting an accepted offer would take 13+ months. Brenna stood with us every step of the way. I lost count of how many showings she took us to on the weekends and in the evenings and how many offers she wrote for us (really good ones I might add that were still denied.) We are so grateful that we had Brenna on our side during such a stressful year that should be an exciting time. She was always available by text and always made time for us. When she easily could have been tired of showing us homes, she kept on and NEVER pressured us into a house just to close a sale. She made a point to call out things we may have missed, and she knew exactly what we were looking for and expecting. I know that she had to make a lot of calls to us to say "sorry guys, they went with another offer" however, in hindsight I am so happy we lost some of those homes. When we did finally find the one, we were ready to go all in and she helped save us money by going in with a fair offer but asking closing costs. We thought in this market, no way... but it was accepted! Once we had an accepted offer, she helped us get top dollar for our current home in lakeside! She kept us informed on what to expect on next steps on the sale of our current home and purchase of the new one. Closing went seamlessly! Honestly, we are sad not see Brenna multiple times a month anymore! She felt more like a friend than a real estate agent! We will refer friends and family to her for sure! :) Thank you, Brenna!!! "

She's always willing to help no matter the time. This was our second home purchase with her, and I couldn't imagine using anyone else. She's great at navigating everything and made the process easy and efficient. "

Eric A

"Brenna is both professional and personable.

She quickly got to know us and what we were looking for in a house and helped narrow down our options and worked quickly to get our house on the market under a time constraint. We hit a few bumps along the way, and she was very helpful in keeping us informed and made a stressful situation more bearable. We will definitely be recommending her to anyone we know looking to buy or sell!"

"Brenna was amazing through the whole process.

She was better than we ever thought a real estate agent could be. She was knowledgeable, easy to work with, easy to get a hold of, always did her best to answer all of our many questions, took care of the bumps in the road, looked out for our best interest, helped us negotiate, and was able to close a deal we were happy with. Brenna did all of this for us with an exceptionally awesome attitude! She really enjoys what she does, and she is exceptional at it as well. Brenna helped us secure the lake cabin of our dreams and even gave us a gift at the closing; she is the best!"

She is always so responsive and helpful with the process and is always available to answer questions! We had some issues with the seller's realtor not being responsive to our offer and Brenna was able to contact him and get the process moving and they accepted our offer below asking price in this market! We have referred Brenna once already to family and I know they also had a great experience. Would recommend her to anyone! "

Samantha P

"My wife and I both found Brenna to very personal, knowledgeable about the local market, and was a great wealth of information regarding our questions during the process.

We both liked the fact that even from the initial meeting, she had similar thoughts on budgets and spending as my wife and I; she was very professional and informative during our journey of finding our house.\r\n\r\nI did just see Brenna at a home show the company was staffing a booth; she was happy to hear an update on how things are doing, and reiterated again not to hesitate to contact her with any questions we'd have in the future. The company is definitely better off having her on staff - keep up the great work!!"
