We had the pleasure of working with Brenda Holden when searching for a new home as a result of our relocation from San Diego, California to the Triangle area. Brenda was wonderful to work with in every way.  Moving across country is always difficult and we were completely unfamiliar with the area, but Brenda made every aspect of searching for a home as enjoyable as possible and we will always be grateful for her help.  Right from the very first meeting, we were drawn to Brenda´s enthusiasm, knowledge and professionalism.  We were on a very tight time schedule during our house-hunting trip.  Prior to our arrival, Brenda provided us with lots of resources that would ultimately help maximize the time we had.   She made certain she knew our specific needs and she tirelessly took us from home to home (and back again!) until we found the perfect home for us.  Brenda took care of every detail of the process and she went way above and beyond what would be expected to assist us.  From offer to close, Brenda insured that everything went smoothly with our home purchase.  Since we were out-of-state most of the time between the offer and the closing, we were very lucky to have Brenda on top of the details of the transaction, always acting in our best interest. 

Brenda and her team are highly experienced and very knowledgeable.  Without hesitation, we would highly recommend Brenda to anyone considering buying or selling their home!

My family recently purchased our new home in the Raleigh area.  We had the pleasure of utilizing Fonville Morisey to help us with our purchase.  Brenda Holden was our agent and she was outstanding.  Throughout our search, she made certain we were aware of all the possibilities.  She limited the search to exactly what we asked for, anticipated our desires, and suggested alternatives/options when it was necessary.  We were on an extremely tight time schedule and Brenda made it possible for us to meet this schedule with her dedication, persistence, and resourcefulness.  After our offer was accepted, Brenda and her entire team were invaluable.  We were relocating from nearly 500 miles away and she was able to coordinate the whole process for us.  Due to the distance, it was difficult to arrange some of the inspections and impossible to attend them.  Brenda and her husband Steve helped us in arranging the inspections, attended them on our behalf, and acted as our eyes and ears throughout the whole process.  Furthermore, Brenda and her team made certain that all the details were attended to.  They were extremely diligent and made absolutely certain that the sellers completed their responsibilities, were aware of our deadlines, and that no details were missed.  This was our third home purchase and the first where I felt our agent cared as much as we did.  Throughout the entire process, her objective was to make sure we were (and would be) happy and not to make a sale and get her commission.  We consider ourselves lucky to have had Brenda as our agent.  We will utilize Brenda and her team when we sell (and buy) in the future.

We recently purchase a home in North Raleigh and had the pleasure of working with Brenda Holden and Fonville Morisey Realty.  After interviewing a few agents in June, it was an easy decision to choose to work exclusively with Brenda.  We relocated to the Raleigh area from San Diego and Brenda made the relocation process as smooth as possible.  Our home search was very broad in scope and Brenda never pushed us to limit it.  Brenda was very thorough and made certain we were aware of all the possibilities, which provided us with the insight to make our decision easier.  She spent countless days in a short time frame with my wife and I, along with our very young children, on the road visiting potential homes and didn't lose faith even when we were struggling with the decision.  After our offer was accepted, Brenda and her entire time continued to exceed our expectations for superior service.  She arranged the inspections, coordinated utility transfers, attended all meetings and acted as a terrific adviser in working with the builder and dealing with The Parade of Homes.  Brenda's objective throughout the entire process was to make sure we were completely happy and she did just that.  She was outstanding to work with!  We are blessed to have met Brenda and our family feels lucky to consider her a close friend.  We have already referred numerous buyers to Brenda and will do so whenever opportunities present themselves.  I'm hopeful that we have the opportunity to work with Brenda again.
