"I would highly recommend Brenda Perkins, she is patient, honest and really goes out of her way to understand you and your families needs. We emigrated from Scotland and liaised with Brenda for over a year before moving, where she scoured every possibility of where would be best for us to move to which included what schools would suit our children. [
] We got to know Brenda so well, we entrusted her to go and look at a house which we bought and had never seen as we knew we could trust her judgement implicitly."

"Erin was absolutely amazing helping my wife and I find our first home. [
] He assisted us in every part of the process, helping us understand what the steps were, answering questions, and informing us of things we never knew to even think of. Erin has an extensive network of companies he's worked with and provided valuable advice so that we walked away with the best deal imaginable ... far surpassing our own expectations."

"Alan represented us in our recent home purchase. He worked diligently for more than a year, and all during that time, we knew we could call on him to get a straight answer, and we were amazed at the great communication we had with him during the whole thing. I think he was as happy as we were when we went to closing and got the keys. Alan, please use us as a reference for your customers in the future."

"Brenda is an amazing person to work with. I was a first time home buyer and completely lost when I started to search. Working with Brenda was a learning process, not just a home buying process. I think many realtors would have given up on me a few months into it, because I just could not make a decision. Brenda was very patient, and in the end, it paid off, because I found the perfect home."

"Erin is a high energy, intelligent, persistent, communicative and confident professional. I was impressed when he first contacted me to introduce himself within minutes of my online inquiry into a particular listing. [
] He also was a hero in leading the buying process from offer to close, all the while deftly handling my absence for much of it."

Like I said in my video testimonial I am almost at a loss for words when speaking about my experience with Nextage Team Realty. I was in a tight situation and needed to get his house sold fast due to my new job in St. Louis. I contacted Joi at Nextage and we were able to get his house under contract in less than two weeks. Just amazing. Thanks again.
September 11, 2012
"We had to sell our home fast in order to find the home of our dreams. You helped us do both, and it was so painless. I'm glad you guys are so calm under pressure, because I was a nervous wreck! But it worked out so well in the end. We truly appreciate your professionalism and knowledge."

Brenda was just amazing in helping me find my dream home! As a first time home buyer, this was a learning process for me through out the whole process, and Brenda was amazing with explaining everything in detail to make sure I understood exactly what was going on during the home buying process. Brenda stuck with me and made sure I would find a home in a place that I loved. If not for Brenda and the Nextage Team, I would probably still be looking for a place.

"Joi is an absolute professional. Her knowledge and understanding of the negotiation process saved us thousands off the price and a lot off the closing costs. At the end of the day, that's what your realtor's supposed to do for you."

"I was overwhelmed with the choices, and the decisions about financing, but you guys made it all so clear to me. We put our faith in you guys and you didn't let us down. You guys are all about great service and it shows in everything you do."
August 12, 2012
"Alan, house hunting was so much fun with you! I was worried that we'd be overwhelmed, but you made it all make sense, and we couldn't have found that home without you being on your toes. Only on the market one day I can't believe we were able to get it. Thanks!"
- Alyssa A.

"I can't believe it's only been a month since we closed. I feel like we've lived in this house for years. It's turning out to be the perfect choice. Thanks for clearing up all the noise out there, and getting us into this home. It's perfect, and we have you to thank."

"My relocation was anything but simple, but the Nextage Team made it look so easy. We flew out to Jacksonville for one weekend of showings, and we packed so much in thanks to Alan's energy and enthusiasm. After that one weekend, we left with peace of mind that we had our spot in Jacksonville all buttoned up."
