What others are saying about Brenda Evans and Colin Dawes:

We started the home selling/buying process skeptical about the value we would receive from a real estate agent. Thankfully Brenda Evans proved us wrong. Brenda put the ‘REAL’ in Real Estate agent! She is a passionate and capable woman who dedicates herself to her clients. She really listened to us, connected us with a fantastic mortgage broker, gave perfect advice on staging our home, dedicated countless hours during the critical days of making and accepting offers and helped us find the perfect home for our family. Are real estate agents worth the money? If you hire Brenda your answer will be “Absolutely YES!”.
-Richard and Ericka Taylor, TWU Alums

“My wife and I recently worked with Colin during the purchase of our new home. There were many unknowns for us when it came to how choose and apply for a mortgage. Colin was there for us every step of the way and was always ready and available for any question that we had. What could have been a confusing and overwhelming process was made smooth and hassle-free. Thanks Colin, we are loving our new home!”
-Brian & Rozlyn Kerr, TWU Admissions Staff

“We had such a great experience buying our first home with Brenda! We felt like she understood exactly what we were looking for and was so patient with us as we looked at numerous places. We knew that Brenda wanted the best for us and it is an amazing feeling knowing that our realtor cares so much. Thank you Brenda!”
-Mike & Juliet Teeter, TWU Alumni & Staff

My wife and I were looking to purchase our first home and had been working with a local bank specialist for our mortgage. Out of curiosity and with recommendations from friends we decided to also contact Colin to see what he could offer. In the end we ended up going with Colin not only because he could find us the best rate and options but because we never felt pressured at any time and could always ask any questions we might have. Getting a mortgage that worked for us and having a good experience at the same time is all you can ask for. We would recommend Colin to anyone looking for a mortgage.
