Brenda Simms spent many hours a few years ago when we were deciding on relocating. When we finally made the decision Brenda was there every step of the way. Her professionalism is what stood out and her making a long distance transaction work beautifully was appreciated. We would definitely use Brenda again.


—Ron and Linda King, Hollister

Brenda Sims is a solid, positive and helpful agent who knows her market and is very good at all aspects of the house selling process. Brenda was great to work with and I would go with her again in a second.


—M. Cardozo, Roseville CA

—Lora Allen

Brenda Sims is an amazing person. She kept in constant contact with us at all times even more than once a day. And we know she is a busy person. She was extremely attentive, diligent in her job, an excellent communicator, trustworthy, did everything she said she would do, has great integrity, and an overall excellent agent. Plus, Brenda is personable, caring, honest and helpful. Brenda also referred us to Esther Fuller to assist us in applying for a reverse mortgage loan, which was a tremendous help in purchasing our property. Brenda kept us informed and up to date on the daily events of the escrow process and handled all the paperwork in a timely manner. Brenda is very knowledgeable of all aspects of real estate, and we are very impressed with her administration of the purchase of our property. We are very happy with Brenda and consider her a caring friend. We would highly recommend her to our family and friends who would have any real estate needs. She is the best!

—Caroline Levenberg El Dorado Hills
  /  

Brenda's referral to us by the Hawthorn Retirement Group, where we now live, was a prime factor in our selection to have her sell our home. Her additional training and certification for working with seniors gave us the additional confidence we needed in hiring her services. Her personal touch and caring was quite evident from the very beginning. She worked extremely hard to satisfy our needs, and knew right away the factors that were important to us. She was always courteous, friendly and pleasant under all circumstances and we never ever felt that she was rushing us or taking any shortcuts, or forcing us to make quick decisions. She has our highest recommendation.


—Bent & June Ericksen, El Dorado Hills, CA

We chose Brenda Sims for our third transaction as we were so happy with her professionalism, personality, respect for us as clients and others. Brenda is always available 24/7 and is always tirelessly working for our best interest and doesn’t mind following up and communicating even if she had already explained something to us. She had credibility in the real estate market and is highly respected by clients and realtors. She sold our last home in 20 days and we were able to close escrow on our new home within 25 days. Brenda spells results.

Brenda did and excellent from the start to the finish. Their were some anxious moments with the buyer were I was a "little" difficult, but being the professional Brenda is let it bounce off her and kept her focus to get the deal done.


—Steve and Diane Schlener, Folsom, CA
  /  

Brenda is an outstanding person - someone I think of as a friend, more than a broker. She is a true professional, which I appreciated. She has great patience - staying with me for 2+ years to find the right house. I don't know the El Dorado area, so I relied on her to guide me to the right home, and she did. I hope we can remain in touch during the coming years. Should friends and/or relatives of mine think about moving to this area, I will definitely recommend Brenda. She's the first person to talk to before even thinking of moving here - she will give the pros and cons, and be honest about it. What a treasure!


—Judi Reed, El Dorado Hills
  /  

Brenda Sims is a dedicated and hard working professional. She works very hard to provide outstanding customer service. We felt Brenda was accessible after hours and weekends always delivering results as promised. It was a claps going experience as we were selling and purchasing so timelines were critical. Thank you Brenda for a job well done!


—Bill and Rose Hargrove

Brenda was very helpful in finding us our retirement home and we're very pleased with the home we purchased. Brenda was friendly and very willing to help us find the property we were looking for.

—Esther Beckman,El Dorado Hills.
  /  

Brenda Sims is the best. We can't convey how caring she is. She is always pleasant and understanding of our needs. She worked with us selling our home and buying the new one for 5 months. When there was a request for repair at the new house, she stayed on top of the contractor. She gave us lots of possibilities in several areas. She was always willing to help with measurements for furniture and concern for utilities. We did a reverse mortgage and Brenda knew the ins and outs of that transaction.


—Bill & Shirley Murray
  /
