My Client Testimonials

    Brenda was the perfect relator for purchasing our first home. She did a great job of listening to what we were looking for in a home, and provided suggestions on places newly on the market to look at. This gave us the opportunity to compare homes in our area and pick what was best for us. When we were interested in placing an offer, she created a low pressure environment and helped us come to the right decision on what to offer, contingencies, etc. Without her efforts, we would not have gotten into the home we did! Alex H.
    Brenda made the process of buying a home easy and exciting. She is very flexible with the times she was able to show us homes. She always worked around our schedule and did with a smile on her face (a great smile). She is quick with her responses and if she didn't know the answer to a question she quickly found it out! Yes, the process of buying a home can be stressful, but when we were out with Brenda she provided a stress-free environment and a positive attitude. Whether it was by providing snacks for my husband and me (when we hadn't had dinner yet) to even driving us around. Brenda is an absolute fabulous person to work it. She is extremely knowledgeable about what to look for in a home and what could be a possible problem down the road. She represented my husband and I during the negotiation process professionally and made it easy to understand the process for first-time home buyers like ourselves. If we ever decide to move from our home, I know I can trust Brenda to help us find a new home. -Erika and Phillip T.
    Brenda was wonderful in helping us with the purchase of our townhome. There wasn't anything she couldn't do for us or help us with. Everything went smoothly and we are very happy. Bonnie M.
    My wife and I worked with Brenda on finding our first home. She was great! She took charge when she needed to and also served as a much needed supportive role in the process. We ended up finding a great first home right between where my wife and I work helping make our commutes more "stress free." The home buying experience with her was a smooth and an enjoyable one. Her knowledge and expertise helped us parse through what we "wanted" for our first house vs. what we "must have." Brenda was more than a normal realtor! Thanks Again! The Netcott Family
    Working with Brenda was one of the best experiences I've had when it comes to making big and often times stressful decisions. She treated my wife and I like we were her top priority and helped us understand all the fine details about buying a home. She knew exactly how to guide us through the process and was very flexible when finding time to view potential homes. I would recommend Brenda to anyone I know and I assure you that you won't be disappointed. Simon C.

    Brenda was the perfect realtor to help sell our house. She clearly knew the market and more importantly was so good to work with. There was no question too basic, no issue to hard to be solved, couldn't have been more responsive and we trusted her implicitly. Brenda, Mike and her team went way beyond what was expected to make sure things got done, the house sold (in less than a week for more money than we expected), and the closing happened on time even with complications. I recommend Brenda highly and believe she and her team are among the very best in the Des Moines metro area. Gary B.

    Very professional and would recommend her. We wanted more than she thought our house was worth so did what we wanted. We then realized as so many of us that we value our house for more than it should be listed for. We than listed for what she thought it would go for and sold shortly thereafter. She knows what she is doing, she has years of experience and will get you what your house is worth! She is working for you! Mark & Cindy B.
    I highly recommend Brenda. She goes above and beyond and then some to research, assist and complete things during the process. In addition, it is very easy to communicate with her as she is friendly, honest and quick to respond to phone calls, texts and emails. V. Winget 4239 40th St, Des Moines, IA 50310
    We could not have asked for a better experience than the one we had with Brenda. We could tell from day one that she truly valued and cared about us. She was ultra responsive, thorough, detail-oriented, and was ready to help with any and everything we needed Which was especially helpful as we were moving with two young children in tow. Her husband Mike was a big help as well, throughout the entire process. We would gladly refer Brenda and Mike to anyone in need of a realtor. Justin Kenny 3605 Mary Lynn Dr, Urbandale, IA 50322

    Brenda found the perfect house and helped make the transaction happen in a timely manner. She understands the market and value as well. Some people talk and others get things done. Brenda listens, understands and gets things done. Her honesty, dedication, and hard work make her a perfect selection for your real estate needs. Larry L.
    Brenda was an excellent realtor, especially as first time home buyers. She really listened to what we were interested in, was able to pivot and provide more options as we slowly changed our minds after a few showings and always let us have the last say, ultimately understanding and allowing us to make the best decision for ourselves. Her suggestions and advice were very helpful as we made our way to finding our new home. Our buying experience was a tough one, to say the least, but Brenda wasn't going to let anything stand in the way from us getting our future home. She truly championed for us and kept us informed every step of the way. We would recommend anyone looking for a new home, to contact Brenda Klenk." phonsavanh lovan 1275 NW 92nd St, Clive, IA 50325

    I cannot say enough about Brenda and her care for our search for a home! From fixer-uppers to newer model houses, Brenda has wonderful insight and advice on the market and genuine care for her clients by treating them with great care. For us specifically, she spent extra time beyond normal work hours and found us the perfect house for our price and in a neighborhood we absolutely love. After Closing and moving in, she consistently reaches out to ask about the house and offers help in anyway possible, from design to landscaping, Brenda has an incredible eye for both classic and trending styles. In our changing society it's hard to find someone who truly cares about service and understands the the value of pride in a job. However, Brenda does exceptionally well in these categories and it's no surprise you can't find anyone who will say a single bad thing about her. Our family looks forward to enjoying our new house, raising our family and getting to know our neighbors, all thanks to our realtor and friend, Brenda Klenk! 04/14/2021 - johnsonjusa Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in Urbandale, IA. courtesy of
    Brenda made the process of finding and purchasing a home a very good experience for us. When giving her a list of things we were looking for in a home, she knew the Des Moines metro well enough to find the houses that met our needs and wants. She knew what each step of the process was going to look like and worked along side of us every step of the way. We didn't have to ask or wonder what was going to happen next. Even though we knew that we were not her only client, we felt like we were based on how much attention she gave us through the purchasing process. She took the time to get to know our family and made us feel like we were part of her's. We would definitely recommend Brenda to anyone looking for a home in the metro. Thanks again Brenda! 04/10/2021 - jmcampbell6306 Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Des Moines, IA. courtesy of

    We had an older home which had some exterior maintenance issues and first thought we would attempt to sell it ourselves, however hadn't had much luck 6 years prior w/ FSBO. We decided to go with realtor this time and am delighted to say Brenda Klenk's expertise and commitment sold our home in under 2 months. Thankfully due to her perceptive thinking we had a counter offer all ready when the first offer fell through. Then with some reasonable negotiating on her part, the counter offer was good to go. She then took it one step further and found an alternative brokerage where the buyers could sign while in another state away on business. Thanks to her diligence we keep our original closing date from changing and successfully were able to buy our dream home. We would defiantly use her in the future and would highly recommend her to anyone needing to buy or sell a home. Thanks Again Brenda, Your the Best!! 03/31/2021 - dawnray2008 Sold a Single Family home in 2021 in Dallas Center, IA. Courtesy of
