“We used Brandell for making offers on several homes and finally purchasing our 2nd home. She made extra effort along the way to make sure that we had everything we needed and was there when a few things went not smoothly. Finally we got the house we have been looking for and at the correct market value…. actually better than market value with a bonus of it appraising for more that what we paid. But one of the best reasons to use Brandell is her policy of rebating part of her commission back to the buyers… In our case it was 2/3 of her total commission came back to us as a check 5 days after close…. it was quite a large sum and it has come in handy for buying new furniture for our new house.

Thank You Brandell for all your help — we are passing your name to all of friends and people we meet.”

“Brandell did an excellent job negotiating for us – Her method of providing a rebate back to the buyer worked perfect for us. We couldn’t have bought our house were it not for the rebate and her excellent work. Highly recommended!”

“We chose to work with Brandell because she focuses on exactly on what’s most important to us in a realtor: negotiating and closing the deal. We were happy to handle most of the research finding the property ourselves, and were so happy to find such a great Realtor who offered a rebate that reflected the way people buy houses in the Internet age. We have worked with many agents in the past and never received the kind of true professionalism we received from Brandell.”

“My experience with Brandell was awesome. Brandell is one of the most honest, down-to-earth, professional realtors I have ever dealt with. She was extremely knowledgeable of market values and was up-front about everything. I really appreciate her straightforward approach. Her professionalism, her knowledge of the market and her ability to deliver solutions all contributed to her selling my townhome within a month. The best part of working with Brandell was her innovative approach to the entire real estate process. She is a very smart, open-minded, hardworking lady and I would recommend her services to everyone. Working with Brandell, you will be more than satisfied!”

“Working with Brandell is a no-brainer. Since almost all buyers these days go online to find homes themselves, why not do a little work on your own and get cash back? We received over $16k back at closing. Brandell is very professional, no-pressure, and brings attention to many details that most realtors would have missed. I will for sure use her in the future and recommend her to family and friends.”

“My experience working with Brandell was better than I ever could have expected. When I hired Brandell I was working with time constraints that were very short. Every aspect of the sale was done professionally, from contract to closing. Brandell was always a step ahead of every aspect of the sale letting me know exactly what I needed to do at every turn. I paid half the commission I would have normally and got twice the amount of service. I have already recommended Brandell to all of my friends! I can’t say enough good things about her and the savings was really helpful too!”

I’ve often heard that discount brokers give discount service but that is not true at all in our experience. We had very good experience with Brandell. I was a first time homebuyer and she basically held my hand and walked us through the entire transaction and made everything run so smoothly. Honestly, I couldn’t believe the money I saved using her. I bought all my furniture and appliances with the rebate! Thanks Brandell for making this such a good experience for me and my family.”

“Brandell came recommended by a friend who found her through another friend. She was the third realtor we’ve worked with, and we had no idea the real estate business could be like this. Frankly, she makes the typical buying/selling process look archaic. We could not recommend her more highly. Here’s why:

We sold our townhouse and bought a single family home through Brandell and both experiences were equally impressive. First, she hired a professional photographer to take the pictures of our home. Each week she sent us automatic updates sent to us through email so we’d know how much traffic our listing had received. Though the market was a bit slow, we still had multiple showings each week, and our place sold in a little over a month. What’s amazing to me is that she charged the least of any realtor we found, AND gave us a huge rebate at closing…over $9,000! I admit, I can be a bit of a control nut, but I was more than happy to let Brandell take control when it came to negotiations on both the buying and selling side. She prides herself on knowing the market and on knowing what buyers and sellers want. Brandell is fair, professional, straight-forward, and likeable. Not a hint of a salesperson vibe. We were very impressed and will definitely use Brandell in the future and will recommend her to anyone we know who needs a great realtor!

One other aspect of the transaction that my husband and I loved was that all the document signing was done electronically, we didn’t have to print anything out. It made the process so much faster and smoother. Why don’t all brokers work this way?”

“We used Brandell to buy a house in Dallas, she was great to work with, very knowledgeable of the market, and helped us navigate a multi-offer process. Brandell’s business model, which is based on providing her client’s with a rebate based on a percentage of the sales prices, is excellent and a huge help!”

“Brandell helped us sell our house and buy our new house. Brandell hired a professional photographer who took amazing pictures of our home that really drew attention to our listing. We saved over $20,000 on both sides of the deal. Overall, we have had a very pleasant experience with her and would definitely use her again and have recommended her to all our friends.”

“We worked with Brandell to purchase a single family house in the Sugarland area and ultimately closed on a new construction home. Brandell stepped in on our behalf on a number of instances, and she also proved to be a very effective negotiator. Brandell responded with promptness every time it was necessary, but never put any pressure on us to make hasty decisions. Brandell also utilized state of the art technology – electronic document signing, to make the process as efficient and painless for us as possible. The cash back was icing on the cake – it was quite helpful in ofsetting some of our closing costs and in setting up our new home after closing. We would gladly recommend Brandell to anyone considering a purchase in the future!”

“Brandell offered exactly what I was looking for in a real estate broker. I had already found the house that I was interested in and generally knew what I wanted to offer, so I just needed help with the contract, inspections, closing, etc. Brandell did just that, and I got a rebate of about $4000 back at closing. I don’t know why most people would use any other approach to real estate these days, given that buyers can do most of their own work in finding houses and research comps online themselves.

“As an experienced home buyer and seller, I decided that it made sense to explore my options for my next realtor when we purchased our next home. I researched online for a broker to assist me with the basics of facilitating the transaction. I interviewed several experienced realtors with different fee structures ranging from cut rate to full price. During that process, I was attracted by Brandell’s internet presence and her rebate program.
After speaking with Brandell on the phone, I decided that I would give her a try. Brandell was articulate and easy to talk to and after speaking with her I fully expected that she would be a good agent. What I did not expect was the responsiveness and accessibility that I received using Brandell – she always answers her phone, I love that!

In the past twenty years, I have bought and sold many homes. At least 8 closings and over a dozen contract negotiations. I can promise you that you will be as well placed or better placed to maximize your deal by working with Brandell as you would be with any other realtor. Why pay more when you can have a capable, experienced Realtor that just works smarter, and a little harder, than most other realtors? I would happily send my closest, least experienced friends to Brandell with confidence that they will not only get a great deal, but also that they will be well taken care of and get better representation than from most standard fee realtors. Call or Email her to see for yourself. You won’t regret it. Ask for a reference and I will gladly talk you about my recent, very pleasant experience with Brandell. She is the best!! Couldn’t be happier and we saved a TON of money that enabled us to price our home more appropriately and we got an offer within a week!”

“My wife and I had a really great experience working with Brandell and we recommend her highly. I’m the first to admit that I am not the easiest client and have no problem voicing my opinions and concerns. Brandell was prepared every step of the way and always fully addressed my questions. She was so attentive to all of our needs and never ever pressured us to make any decisions that we didn’t feel comfortable making. Brandell was always prompt and responsive to all of our questions. She is very knowledgeable regarding the Texas real estate market. Also, her use of modern technology made the process seamless. Obviously, the icing on the cake was the rebate that she gave us at closing. It was so refreshing working with someone who understands that clients today do a lot of their own research and homework in buying their home. Brandell understands that concept and rewards her clients for the value that they provide during the search process. We recommend Brandell’s services and will be using her for future transactions.”

“We have worked with several Realtors and had not found one that I would recommend until I worked with Brandell. Brandell clearly has a lot of experience working in a competitive real estate market. Brandell was very professional and provided guidance as we encountered various scenarios, and went to great lengths to ensure that the process between our offers acceptance and closing all went smoothly…Brandell took the time to really get to know what we were looking for…We have referred Brandell to family members who have also used her.”

“Brandell was great to work with throughout the entire home buying process. We didn’t contact her until we found a house we were really interested in, but she really committed to us from that point forward. Brandell communicated everything with us and helped manage our expectations through the process, and we always felt like she was being honest with us. Brandell asked tough questions of the inspector and others throughout the process to ensure that he was really protecting our best interests. She even helped us with ideas for our kitchen renovation. I highly recommend Brandell. She started out as our agent and ended up being our friend.”

“Brandell is absolutely the best realtor we have ever worked with, and we have bought and sold at least a dozen properties over the years. Brandell was proactive and more involved throughout each step of the transaction than any other agent I’ve worked with. Impressive from beginning to end- the house was listed on Friday and had multiple offers on Monday. The house sold above the list price and this was during a buyer’s market!”

“Brandell was a pleasure to work with; she was very patient with us as first time homebuyers and very professional and helpful. I think Brandell and her cash back at closing business model is setting the example of what real estate market services should be in the future – personalized, automated and based on a little more involvement from the client. The rebate from her commission makes a huge difference when you have to deal with closing costs at the end, but Brandell is not providing “discount” services. The rebate definitely made a big difference for us and we greatly appreciated it. All in all, we had a great experience and won’t hesitate to use Brandell again in the future.”

“I don’t think that I’ll ever use another realtor other than Brandell again! Brandell is the most responsive and professional, real estate agent that you will meet – period. From the point that you start looking at properties until the last signature at closing, Brandell makes the whole process run smoothly. Plus, she refunds a portion of her commission to the buyer. The service that Brandell offers, combined with her fee structure, is really a huge and pleasant shift in the real estate industry. I just purchased a home, and am already looking forward to my next purchase using Brandell in a few years. Thanks Brandell!”

“Brandell at Texas Homes has been my real estate agent for two home purchases in Houston over the past 10 years — the first one was a short sale and the second from a builder — and each time her work was terrific.

“While buying our first home, Brandell provided us with full service and then shared a portion of her commission with us. The rebate she gave us covered almost all our closing costs. It took us a long time to find the perfect home but Brandell remained very patient with us throughout the entire process. I will definitely use Brandell if we decide to sell our house in the future. I wouldn’t even consider using anyone else!”
