We spent five weekends traveling form the Bay Area to the foothills outside of Sacramento to look for a home, and Brenda was there with us every step of the way. On one particular day she coordinated five showings and walked us through every property and provided us with the information we needed to make an informed decision. She always reassured us that we would find the home we were meant to be in and that's exactly what happened. I highly recommend Brenda for you home search in this area.
