"We have used Brenda on multiple transactions and she has exceeded our expectations every time. Not only does she know the market and look out for your best interests, she even attends to little details such as picking up cable boxes! Very pleased and would definitely use Brenda again."

"Extraordinary! I bought my first investment property from Brenda in the Desert about a year ago and have looked at several others now with her as travel has permitted throughout 2017. I've been in the real estate game in Colorado now for over 35 years and have worked with many agents, though few that are as diligent, knowledgeable and just an outright pleasure to work with. All of us that have product to market want to make a sale, but with Brenda I also trust in her good advice and information without feeling pressured. I look forward to continuing to work with Brenda in 2018 and beyond and I highly recommend the skilled service she has to offer."

"Brenda McKenney is the best! She helped us find a beautiful condo in La Quinta several years ago, and when we were ready to purchase a larger home, she went above and beyond for us. She is patient and professional, and really listens to the needs of her clients. She is an expert in regards to knowing the ins and outs of the different communities in the desert - and helped us find the perfect location for our lovely vacation home. We hold Brenda in the highest regard and recommend her without hesitation."

"We are Snowbirds from Canada & we lucked out when we met Brenda McKenney who listed and sold two homes for us in La Quinta California. We were new to the area and Brenda was overwhelmingly helpful in showing us the buying possibilities for many days so that we were sure of what we really wanted—no pressure! Years later, when we were ready to sell, she went above and beyond by expertly staging, meeting with service people and even taking care of our properties in our absence. Who has the talent to do that these days?! If you are looking for an extremely knowlegable and personable professional, I highly recommend Brenda." - Nancy

"Brenda Mckenney represented us as buyers for the purchase of our stunning home in La Quinta. She listened intently to our wish list and, in a very short time, identified a home that met all of our criteria. Her integrity, superior market knowledge and skillful negotiating secured us one of the best deals in the desert. We would not hesitate to hire Brenda to both sell and buy in the future." - Barbara
