Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.
Brandy was awesome to work with. Im a guy that doesnt know a lot about buying or selling houses, so I really needed someone to walk me through the process. I also needed someone I felt like I could trust. Brandy was all of that. She helped me find, negotiate, and buy a great house. She also helped me sell my pervious house. If you're not an expert in real estate (and Im not), then Brandy wonderful to have on your side. I couldn't recommend her any more highly

I had a house with some "issues" for sale, in a market that was going from bad to worse. My prior agent was unable to get buyers to even come LOOK at the property. Brandy came to see the house, made great recommendations (simple things, like staging and some small "curb-appeal" repairs), targeted the right ads to the right clients and got the house sold very quickly. She is great to work with. I can recommend her without any reservations!!! Updating to add that she also helped us buy a dream house, at an amazing price. She's the best!!!

My wife and I have worked with Brandy many times over the past few years and she is currently working to sell our Condo in downtown Austin. Brandy is a lead professional in the industry, on point with tasks, very friendly and personable, has great attention to detail and fully understands what a customer is looking for to enhance the buying and selling experience. Brandy knows how to market in this strange economic times and fully researches the sell to give you the best customer experience. I would highly recommend Brandy for your real estate needs, not only will she get the job done, she will become a lifelong friend.

Brandy is a very results-driven individual. She will stay with a project and see it through to a successful completion no matter how difficult the barriers become. Brandy's rather extensive background of construction management tasks, HR skills, and Real Estate experience give her clients a wealth of resources most other Agents can't match. You can't go wrong choosing someone of her abilities to be on your team.
Brandy is a fantastic realtor - easily the best I've ever worked with. She understood my wife and I's needs quickly and adjusted our strategy as those needs changed throughout the process. She did a great job of laying out up front the marketing strategy for our house and keeping us on track to get it ready for sale and to maximize that sale. She is awesome

Brandy, I wanted to spend a few minutes and tell you about my buying experience with you. Your performance can be summed up in a single word: “Excellence”. Throughout the selection, offer and purchase process, you have been the consummate professional. You are obviously skilled and experienced, you fully understand what “agency” really means, yet you ice the cake with a warm and personal touch. I never felt for a moment that I was forgotten, second-priority or a bother. I was kept fully informed during the course of the experience, and was given useful information that I was not aware of. In short, use me for a reference if you ever need to. It would be my honor and pleasure to tell other folks how good you are. All the best,

We really liked how Brandy and Leesa paid more attention to our needs than trying to sell us a house. They were really considerate of the location and type of house we were looking for and showed us areas we were interested in but also showed us areas that they thought would be a good match for us. We ultimately ended up picking a house in the area they recommended! Brandy and Leesa made everything so effortless for us until the last signature with the Title company. We even used a loan broker that they recommended. Brandy and Leesa kept in touch with us for 2 years of searching for the right house! No other way to explain how they are more interested in building a long lasting relationship than just selling a house which is awesome!

We were very comfortable with Brandy from the start. She was very prompt when communicating by email, text, or a personal call. She took her time with us with regard to understanding our needs and goals. She was very knowledgable with the market, and knowing the exact time to go live on MLS. Our home sold in less than 24 hours. We would definitely use Brandy in the future.

I have been involved in real estate transactions for 37-years. In all that time, I have never met a more competent, dedicated or professional real estate agent or broker. Brandy is bright, personable and operates with the highest integrity. In short, I recommend her without qualification.
Brandy had exceptional knowledge about the area and housing market. She referred me to resources that allowed me to best market my property and feel confident in all my decisions.

Brandy is exceptional. I was a first time buyer with tons of questions. She was patient and treated me with respect and consideration. I had a blast looking at houses and learning the process with her direction. She made me laugh and I truly enjoyed all of our outings and conversations. Every step of the way she guided me and made me feel very at ease. She is clearly very knowledgeable of real estate, but especially the Austin neighborhoods. It is without hesitation that I recommend Brandy Finnessey to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Brandy, Looks like it's a wrap on the Eclipse Cove house. It went, as expected, like it was being run by a consummate professional, namely you. Your thoroughness, experience, communications skills and team all worked together for a successful outcome. Thanks.
A very pleasant and smooth experience. Brandy is extremely knowledgeable on what it takes to sell and buy a home. She helped our family by applying her excellent client treatment and reality knowledge of the whole process. Brandy took us from the very beginning of staging and selling our home, to selecting and closing on our new home. --Thank you for making it so easy.

I used Brandy's services for the purchase of my home several years back. When the time came to sell again I didn't hesitate to give her a call for both the selling of that home, and the buying of our next. Not only does her professionalism exceed all expectations, but she is very driven and customer oriented. She was informative and gave us the feeling she was truly "on our side" throughout the normally stressful and arduous process of selling and buying a home. I heartily recommend contacting and working with her in any of your future real estate ventures...she will always have my business.

Being a single first time homebuyer, I was very skeptical of every aspect of the home buying process. I toyed with the idea of starting this long grueling process but it never came into fruition until I spoke with a Broker. Brandy Finnessey was highly recommended by my broker. She is very industry smart and was a really good negotiator throughout the closing process. She listened to every detail of my needs from what type of home I wanted to the requested options within the contract. She made it seem like I was the only person she was assisting in buying a home. She is very prompt and professional with any type of communication. She gave great advice with what neighborhood to choose, home type, lot selections, and small factors that may affect the resale process. When she made a promise she would surely keep it and would follow up to see if I was pleased with the outcome. As long as Brandy is in the Realty industry, she will always be my first choice and will be highly recommended to anyone that needs excellent realty assistance. Thanks again Brandy for your awesome service.

Brandy truly cares about achieving your family's goals during the process of selling and purchasing a home. She has supported me though 2 home purchases and one home sale and her expertise and negotiating skills are superb!

We would like to take this time to thank you for doing an incredible job in selling our home! Your professionalism and unbelievable organization couldn't have been better in making sure that the sale of our home went as smooth as possible. We were confident that you were always on top of whatever situation came up and communicated so well with us in a very timely manner. We will definitely recommend you to any of our friends or family that need such a trust worthy realtor. It's a tough market these days, but you handle it so well. Thanks again for selling our house and finding the perfect home for our family!
