Brenda Mauldin - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Heather and I both enjoyed working with you and as we stated to each other many times we were so glad that YOU were our realtor.

Thanks for all your hard work, moral support, and tutoring as we worked through this process.  You made it so much easier for us. John M.

This is the third time I have worked with Brenda Mauldin.

The first two times, she listed and successfully sold condos belonging to me under extremely difficult circumstances. The first was when the market was severely down and no one seemed to be selling anything at a decent price. The second involved a niche listing limitation imposed by me. Both times, Brenda made a sale on both condos within weeks of listing at very satisfactory prices. (At an early point in the second listing, when I despaired of my chances of selling to such a limited niche market, Brenda said firmly to me, "I am determined to sell your condo!" And she certainly delivered on this statement!) So this time around, when I was the buyer rather than the seller, I was happy to give her an "easy" sale within days of her listing. But it was only "easy" because I trusted Brenda completely. The building has a rather checkered history, and being a highly cautious and conservative personality, I would not have had the confidence to buy into it, much as I loved the unit itself. But Brenda gave me assurances that sealed the deal for me, and (so far), my trust has been amply justified. In the end, when so much information is now available online to buyers, this is what real estate agents are still needed for - a relationship history that you can draw on to give you confidence for critical decision-making. With her calm and serene air, her salesmanship is more based on giving thorough and useful factual information and suggestions rather than any high pressure tactics, and she exudes integrity. One additional note I would like to make about Brenda is that, as far as I can tell, she seems to have no life! Every time I have worked with her, she has answered emails and texts within minutes of my writing her, and there was never a time when I had trouble with her availability due to other exigencies of normal human existence. As beneficial as this is for her clients, I wish for her some down time!

Her confidence is obvious, but it is her sincere interest in others that stands out.

It simply amazes me how she comes away not only fascinated about those she just met, but also remembering every detail of their conversation.'

Her sales skills are impeccable then add her integrity, her honesty along with a great sense of humor and you have the best broker I have ever dealt with.

' P. Nussbaum

Brenda has a passion for real estate like none other I have encountered.

She is a natural. Not only is she knowledgable, organized and professional but her staging expertise is an added bonus to her clients. She makes the mundane into mighty!'

I had exactly one weekend to find a place to rent in Chicago, and I decided that I wanted to go through a real estate broker to make the process more organized.

Brenda came highly recommended to me, and she absolutely delivered -- she gave me daily information on which rentals were coming onto the market, set up all the showings to fit my schedule, and gave me a ton of great advice along the way. I learned so much about the condo market from talking to Brenda, and when I am looking to buy in Chicago, I will definitely look to her.

Brenda, Thank you for being such a fabulous agent & helping us find the perfect condo!

I received your latest “just sold!

” card. I’m impressed with the mailer you sent after selling one of the condos in my building. It’s important to me not only because we are long-time 777 residents, but also because I’ve been president of the board for 9 years. You clearly “get” the building. Focusing on our great location and gorgeous views should more than overcome a façade that is, to be kind, uninspiring. We’ve done a lot in 9 years, including the pool deck, fitness center , meeting room and hallways. The lobby and entrance are next. So thanks for doing your job so well. Know that your name will be on the tip of my tongue the next time I’m asked for a realtor recommendation.

Brenda is the BEST!

!! She is always professional and prepared. I am a Property Manager in River North and when I discover that Brenda is the listing agent on any unit, I am beyond thrilled because I know she will have everything ready and over to me in a timely basis. I truly cannot say enough good things about Brenda. I wish she was the only agent I ever had to deal with.

Virginia Major

Brenda is a star.

Very professional. Courteous and straight forward. Strikes the balance between polite suggestion and indicating what needs to be done. Efficient communicator. She understands the market and represents all parties well. Brenda rented our apartment on one showing. I'd work with her again.

The professionalism Brenda provided was exceptional.

She knows Chicago real estate extremely well and was able to find us the perfect home. I highly recommend her to first time home buyers to seasoned buyers.

Dearest Brenda, You have been such a significant person in our family's life during this critical transition.

 Thank you for being you!  I do not exaggerate when I say that we all feel blessed by you.  Joyce S.

Joyce S.

We loved working with Brenda.

We are extremely happy with the sale of our unit. Strongly recommend!

Dorota Bartosik

Being the Board president of my condominium association, I was able to determine which realtors were selling the most units in our building.

Brenda was that person. About two years prior to us selling, we had Brenda come over to our condo and advise us on what improvements we should make to make  it more salable when we eventually were going to sell it. She was kind enough to advise us. We knew then, we were going to use her when we did eventually list it. Brenda worked very diligently (held three open houses) to sell our condo and had an offer in less than two weeks. We had moved out of state when we listed it with her, and she became our "eyes and ears" in our absence. She handled everything for us. We strongly would recommend Brenda to anyone looking for an experienced professional realtor.

J. Raim

Brenda, I just want to say THANK YOU for all of the amazing support that you've provided over the last few years.

  You have been an invaluable help -- it's not easy being a long distance owner/landlord - and have made even some tough situations manageable. It has truly been a pleasure working with you, and I hope we get the chance to work together again!  In the meantime, if given the opportunity, I'll certainly refer friends in Chicago to you.

Meaghan F.

Her loyalty is a trait rarely found in the work place these days.

' K. Ross

She is an extremely loyal, detailed and caring person.

Anyone working with Brenda should consider themselves quite fortunate. In my forty two years as a real estate broker in the Dallas market I have never worked with a more competent individual.'

Steve Baird, Owner and CEO, Baird & Warner

Brenda, Thank you so much for all your help and advice.

I will definitely be in contact with you when we decide to sell. You have shown me your expertise and professionalism through the process.

This is our fourth real estate transaction with Brenda.

We wouldn't think of doing one without her invaluable input, guidance and market research.

Douglas Van Boven

Charles Freeman, owner of Briggs Freeman Real Estate Brokerage Firm, Dallas Texas

Brenda was the best realtor we’ve ever worked with (bought and sold: 7 in 4 states).

She was quick to set us up to look at a range of possibilities and sensitive to our particular needs. She’s a terrific communicator and gave us many contacts with various businesses and service providers who have also done a great job.

I extend my highest recommendation for Brenda Mauldin.

She demonstrated to me a level of professionalism, preparation, hard work and authentic advocacy unparalleled in my previous experience with other realtors.  It was a distinct pleasure to work with Brenda and the outcome could not have been better!

Brenda, What can I say but thank you again for all of your hard work.

 You are a true professional and a pleasure to work with.  I would like to remain friends and keep in touch.  Thanks again. Lisa S.

Brenda's energy is endless and her attitude always positive.

I've never seen her overwhelmed in any situation. She's one of the most organized people I know. When she is given a project, she tackles it quickly and with enthusiasm.'

Thanks for making my first-time home purchase go so smoothly!

You certainly stand out amongst the Realtors.  I've met a real professional.

Kristin

Brenda has sold two properties on my family's behalf.

Each time she provided reasonable guidance on price and steps to ensure prospective buyers saw the property at its best. In both of our experiences, each listing went quickly and without incident(she sold one within 24 hours at our full list)! Selling your property can be a time consuming effort and while it may seem like a do-it-yourself opportunity, an agent like Brenda can ensure an efficient experience.

R. & V. Sanghani

Dearest Brenda, You have been a gift from God to us.

 We could not feel the freedom and confidence to step into our future without having been able to trust you to work so hard to sell our home.  We appreciate all your efforts, Brenda.  You are made of such integrity, loyalty, and responsibility, not to mention tenacity, intellect, and courage!   And on top of all that you are sooo much fun! 

Michael D.

Brenda was fabulous to work with – best agent ever!

  Knowledgeable, easy to talk with and she did a lot of work in a very short time.

My wife and I started out our search without aligning on our requirements.

This would normally be an impossible situation for most realtors but after asking us a number of probing questions, Brenda was able to pull together a list of important requirements to help focus our search. Each morning, we would receive a detailed summary of properties that matched our agreed upon criteria along with a few properties that were just outside of our sweet spot which gave us meaningful alternatives for our consideration. Brenda was very patient with us throughout our search especially in a tight market with low inventory. She provided guidance on how we could make a strong offer to ensure we successfully purchased our home. If you are looking for someone who will work to understand your specific needs and then work diligently to find a property that meets your needs, Brenda should be your first choice.

V. Sanghani & R. Sanghani

Brenda, One of the things that impresses me most about you (business-wise) is that you always have detailed information at your fingertips!

Dear Brenda,We are very happy that you have come into our lives as both our real estate agent and friend.

Youhave stayed with us, even though our decision making went back and forth (twice) on the condowe eventually purchased. Your patience with us endeared you to us more that you know or wecan express in words. Brenda, the professionalism, preparedness and genuineness is beyondanyone we have dealt with. Once we had decided to purchase the condo, you were veryinstrumental and efficient in finding us a tenant in less than a month.The fact that we are in a different country, you have provided us with expert guidance as well asprovided us with information on properties within the building our condo is in and of similarproperties in that area. You have set the real estate agent bar on a level that compares to no other.Your friendship to us (you even asked how my mother was doing when she was in the hospital)has meant the world to us. Thank you does not even come close the gratitude we have for you.Your Friends,Tony Redmond and Steve Noble

I have bought and sold several properties with Brenda Mauldin.

In every case she has been very professional and has gone above and beyond what can be expected of a Real Estate Professional. One time I bought a property from her over the phone without even seeing the property. That is how much I trust her judgement. Bob Gary
