"In addition to being a real estate agent and a truly powerful negotiator with a rich background in hospitality, Brenda is a very talented artist and leisure lifestyle expert. I think this gives her a wonderful edge on the market–she provides a completely fresh and personal spin on marketing, styling and staging a home, and making people feel welcome at their brand new dream home or future estate. She is a true expert on Sonoma and Napa Valley and I would trust her with any project, leisure or real estate related! I could not recommend her more highly!"


"It was a pleasure to work with Brenda McNeill as our real estate agent when we purchased our Sonoma home back in 2017. We were new to California after having moved from New York, and so Brenda’s vast knowledge of the local area assisted us in making our decision on where to live. Besides being charming and friendly, Brenda is a great negotiator and has excellent contacts. She helped us to ultimately get the home of our dreams at the right price! Thankfully, we are still friends to this day!"


"Brenda is extremely knowledgeable about Sonoma Real Estate and community. She is very thoughtful of her clients and community. A great person to work with and have on your side! I have found her to be a joy to work with and get to know."


"Ten stars should be the right allocation for Brenda was full of information on selling a home – some of which I took and some that I ignored – and suffered the consequences. My home sold in a timely fashion and for the price that I wanted. Brenda was there every moment arranging for the various tests – and there are many – and if the timing was inconvenient for me – she was there while they were being done. She even brought flowers from her home to mine welcoming possible buyers. Needless to say, there were always delicious goodies at her open houses. Brenda found a perfect place for me to downsize. I love my new home, but treasure that I have found a new friend for life."
