I obtained my real estate license in 2002 after I had relocated to 3 different states and had personally gone through the home buying and selling experience. I learned that communication, education and the clients' best interest are the key elements in providing outstanding service. I wanted to improve upon the process for others as it is one of the biggest transactions we make in life.
I have been a licensed agent in Texas, Maryland and now North Carolina and lived through "seller's markets" AND "buyer's markets". I prefer to take a more consultative approach with my clients by educating them to the market so they can make the best decision for their individual buying/selling needs. I pride myself on strong negotiating skills as well as always being available to my clients.
My husband and I really enjoy the Wilmington area and all that it offers as well as going to the beaches, playing golf and occasional pickle ball. We are very excited about the growth, opportunities and what is yet to come!
Brenda was awesome and used a professional approach. She made the process easy and was extremely responsive. She sold my house in one day. I highly recommend, Brenda Prather!!
Brenda went above and beyond helping me sell a family members property. As I am out-of-state, Brenda handled business that was impossible for me to do because of the distance. She is extremely knowledgable about the area and the local market conditions. Lastly, her easy going and helpful nature gained my trust. Highly recommend her!
She was there every step of the way; before the sale, during the sale and after the sale. She kept us updated every step of the way. If you're looking for a realtor you can trust, I highly recommend her.
We had chosen Brenda Prather because she lived in our neighborhood. We were disappointed. We had decided on a price due to comps and a couple days later she said to raise the price then a few days later she stated to lower the price. She did not seem to have the knowledge with her indecisiveness on price of our house or knowledge of surrounding area. She gave us Ernest money in cash and then said we had to return it to the buyer. She called all hours of the day when it was convenient for her schedule not understanding we worked 12 hours and were Essential workers. I would not recommend this realtor.
I'm not only disappointed but surprised by this review as my goal is always to get the best price and terms for my clients. We were able to obtain a full price contract with very specific terms that you needed for your transfer in under 30 days. At no point during the transaction you gave any indication of dissatisfaction. The deposit is ALWAYS credited back to the buyer at closing towards their down payment...it is simply a means of good faith at time of offer and the buyers chose to pay cash which we had discussed in detail. I've sold a total of 12 other homes in our neighborhood over the past 3 years and have always received excellent feedback with several included in these reviews. I'm sorry to hear your review and hope that you are enjoying your new home.
Working with Brenda to sell our home was a very enjoyable experience. She gave us excellent advice on preparing our home for showings which we know expedited our sale. During the process, her response to our inquiries and request for assistance was immediate, even though she was very busy with other clients. We highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a realtor with not only an abundance of expertise in the real estate process, but who is also kind, patient, and always very professional.
We were extremely satisfied with our realtor, Brenda Prather. She and her husband , Frank, went above and beyond. They helped to brainstorm ideas that would make our property more sellable. Very efficient in communication. They even took care of our lawn and contacted a repair service when our ac wasn’t working and we had already moved out of state. We would highly recommend.
Brenda really listened to how I described my previous home and guided me to the "right" size to look for. She was very familiar with the areas and was able to help me think through the cost, including taxes and even potential insurance costs. Overall, very nice to work with, quick and responsive and helpful!
Brenda is a very professional and knowledgeable agent who takes pride in her work. He personality made us feel as if we were more than just clients. Our first encounter with Brenda was in 2016. We found a house in North Carolina and had to complete the process from Florida. Brenda was able to communicate all information on our behalf. She was there to advocate in our absence. She gained our trust by listening to our needs and helped the process move forward smoothly. We encountered difficulties which were beyond out control but Brenda kept a positive attitude and always remained positive and professional. We were able to close on our home without any problems. We once again relied on her expertise when we purchased a second home. She made the process easy and trouble free. She became more than an agent she became our friend and we are happy and satisfied homeowners. .
She’s the best! She’s with you every step of the way! Very professional but very attentive to your needs and listens well to what you are looking for. Highly recommend Brenda!
We could not have had a better realtor. Brenda is knowledgable, professional and addresses any questions you may have. We highly recommend Brenda Prather! This was our 4th home sale and I have to say working with Brenda was our best experience!
Brenda did an outstanding job listing and selling our house. She was very professional and conscientious conducting business with us, and also extremely thorough doing preparation and research.
Brenda was exceedingly persistent when the property didn’t sell quickly, proving to be very adept at keeping the listing attractive to buyers. In the end, the house sold in the time frame we wanted and we were happy with the price.
We have purchased several properties in the past eight years from a number of real estate agents. Brenda ranks at the top of the list. If we were looking at another property in the Leland/Wilmington area, we would not hesitate to use her services again. We highly recommend Brenda and Coldwell Banker.
Brenda was such a great help to my Fiance and I. This was our first time buying a house and she was great with helping us through the experience and the roller coaster that it can provide. We would definitely use Brenda again when ready to upgrade our house and do not hesitate recommending her to you or any friends.
Brenda is a true real estate professional. She communicated to us in a timely manner, made sure all details were taken care of and sold our house in 5 days. She made our selling experience stress free!
BRENDA was a such a great agent to work with. We were moving to NC from another state and couldn't always get to a new listing to walk through, Brenda would face time us and walk through the house, answering our questions as we saw the homes. She was also awesome when it came to setting up inspections, and finding us professionals and following up on the time lines set for their reports.
I could go on and on about how wonderful she was to work with. But I would call her to help us find or sell another home in a heartbeat. And refer to anyone looking to buy or sell to call BRENDA first.
Brenda made the process easy and not frightening. She is our realtor and friend for life! I was alone here in town a majority of the time, she simplified everything to where I could understand what was happening and got to know me well enough to know where we needed to look and what to look for.
Very knowledgeable and professional ; and still genuinely personable in her emotional interest and support. She is an excellent "listener" and her emotional support in the selling and buying process of the respective client kept us encouraged, along with extra efforts to explore and show us those properties appropriate to our request/needs. She always kept posted and in touch, and we never felt neglected in her endeavors to stay alerted to new listings and sometimes to review and/or repeat previously shown properties.
Brenda is the epitome of the terms "Customer Focused" and "Professional". She took personal interest in the showing and sale of our home and was proactive on every front - She made the process painless.
Brenda was with us every step of the way in the sale of our 2nd home. She was very knowledgeable and watched out for our best interest when negotiating our contract. She went above and beyond to make the process as easy as possible since we were not in town. We would highly recommend Brenda and would use her in the future!
I have known Brenda Prather for a long time and she is a dedicated, honest and hardworking real-estate agent who is very passionate about her work and helping her clients. She is very knowledgeable about the real-estate market and has always provided me with sound, good advice. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in buying or selling their home.
We are from out of state and have dreamed about moving to NC for many years. We were concerned when we went to our first open house about possibly meeting up with a "pushy" real estate agent. However, that is where we met Brenda. She Brenda did an excellent job helping us as we tried to decide buying a previously owned home or a new home. She was extremely knowledgeable about all of the different subdivisions in Leland and pointed out things that we hadn't even considered and was so helpful in all aspects from start to finish.
Working with her has been such a wonderful overall experience. We would highly recommend Brenda to anyone and will do so to others in the future!
Brenda did an excellent job guiding us through all phases of the lot we purchased. She was extremely knowledgeable about the different subdivisions in Leland and was able to point out the differences. She was very responsive to all our questions and had the resources to find the answers that were not immediately known.
She guided us through the offer process and helped the attorney get the necessary information for our closing. Everything went extremely smooth.
I would highly recommend Brenda to help you with a real estate purchase.
Ms Brenda is an amazing and professional person, she made it possible for me and family to get a house; always went above and beyond to help us, as I have told her before... She is the Best!!!
We lived out of state so Brenda not only helped us find our dream home from thousands of miles away but also handled the entire process from start to finish. As first time home buyers we asked a ton of questions. She went above and beyond to educate us and walk us through every step. When it came to negotiating the best deal she was invaluable in making sure we ended up exactly where we wanted to be at closing. We've already recommended her to all of our friends and encourage anyone looking for a realtor to contact Brenda.
Working with Brenda was one of the most pleasant experiences. Before we started the home buying process I had heard many horror stories of realtors and things to be wary of. However, Brenda was recommended to us by a friend who had previously worked with her. Brenda was incredibly responsive, even at 9 pm when I found a house I just HAD to look at. She worked quickly to schedule showings either same day or next day. Once we found a house that we were ready to put an offer in on, Brenda was great at walking us through the process, explaining next steps and answering all questions we had. She would also send us reminders and check-in occasionally once we started the loan/closing process, but she was very courteous and timely. We never once felt pressured during our entire experience and would recommend Brenda to any of our friends looking to purchase a house in the Wilmington/Leland area.
Brenda was very outgoing; she made the home buying experience fun and less stressful as it can be. She gave good advice on prices, things to look for in a good home and things to avoid. Was always easy to get in touch with, always a phone call or text message away. It's hard to find someone that you can learn to trust quickly and will make the relationship more like a friendship than a business deal. Definitely give Brenda a try she is great.
Brenda is a very professional and knowledgeable agent who takes pride in her work. Her personality made us feel more important than just clients. Trying to complete the process from Florida, she was able to communicated all information in our behalf. She was there to advocate in our absence which gain our trust. Any and all coordinates with outside intidies were completed in our behalf which made to process move forward smoothly. Throughout the difficulties during closing which was beyond our control, Brenda continued the positive attitude and always maintained a professional and positive attitude. I am now a new happy and satisfied homeowner.
Brenda was completely accommodating and patient with my home search. She could have easily sold me the house that was "close enough" to my wish list, but she was adamant about meeting all my expectations.
I thought living out of town would make things difficult but Brenda was very generous with her time and was able to coordinate with me when I was in town for short visits.
Brenda was also in tune with my wish list and new I was not in a rush. She came up with many out-of-the-box scenarios that I really liked. All in all it was hard to pick just one house. I have bought many houses and I would say Brenda was the best realtor I ever worked with. I would not hesitate to recommend her services and if I ever sell she is the first person I call.
I referred a past client to Brenda since I moved out of the area. The client sold and purchased. He called and thanked me for the referral as he thought Brenda was very patient, she throughly researched the comparables to help him make informed decisions. She steadfastly negotiated all aspects of the contract and inspections. Brenda kept him informed every step of the process. He now considers her a friend!!
