What we believe

That we can help each individual we meet. Whether it’s carrying a new mother’s grocery cart back when she’s done unloading her groceries, supporting an associate that’s struggling by buying lunch, or helping the people we meet buy & sell real estate, we are in the lifelong business of helping people.

Our positive attitude is our driving force. Our desire and ability to give back to those who give to us is what sets us apart. We never stop looking for ways that we can give back to the world that gives so much to us.

Client Testimonials

"We just closed on our house today and I want to say that Brittany Purcell was an AMAZING realtor! There were so many extenuating circumstances in our sell, on top of the fact that the property was a short sale. It was exhausting trying to work with the bank and the other parties involved, but Brittany never gave up!"

- Shelley Graham on Trulia -

"Brittany was a huge help on our home buying process. It was one of the most stressful things My husband and I have gone through and Brittany helped make it easier to handle. She was very informative and knowledgeable. She communicated well with us and kept nudging the mortgage company along. I would refer Brittany to anybody looking to buy or sell. She was very professional and helped us along on our first home purchase."

- Donna Estafahani on Trulia -

"We have worked with Brittany off and on for two years, and she has been wonderful throughout. She and her staff went above and beyond what I have experienced with other real estate professionals. I look forward to working with her again in the future."

- Mike McGough on Zillow -
