**Thank you so very much for the letter you wrote and sharing with us.  Carol and I can't express in words how much we appreciated your response.  Obviously your letter to the other broker regarding the incorrect information his buyer was relying on and using both information from the OSU Extension Service and your own ranching experience, helped in giving us confirmation on the true facts. Again we really appreciate all your energy and time you put into the letter.  This is just one of the reasons YOU and your team are consistently in the TOP 10% of Prudentials top sellers. You look out for your clients and you take care of them.  We feel so fortunate to have chosen you to represent us in selling our property!  Again, Thank You. ~ Sincerely, Dick and Carol Smith

  
** "I do not believe I have ever had the pleasure of meeting you Brenda, but my wife and I will never forget Sandy and how she helped us purchase our home in 1997.  Sandy, you did a great job for us and rest assured, if we are ever in need of a realtor again, we will be giving you a call.  That is if you haven't already made your fortune and retired by then.  Janice loves her home and we are trying diligently to figure out a way to keep it after I retire.  I am confident we'll work it out. So, just wanted to say hello and thank you Sandy for your professionalism and integrity. 
May God bless you both," Chuck Oswalt
 

** "We feel that the Bonebrake/Edwards Team is all one could hope to find in real estate sales.  They not only do what is required, they never neglect to treat one as human being: they are warm, helpful, knowledgeable, and know what the client needs to know in general and delicate ways.*  In short they are terrific!  *  Such as timing for instance, and calming the sellers nerves."  George and Ruth Strauss

** "It was a very refreshing experience working with Brenda.  She is very professional while at the same time maintaining a friendly atmosphere.  I strongly believe her knowledge of the local area and market were instrumental in the sale of the property.  I have referred to her to a very good friend and neighbor, who was also impressed with her."  Paul and Ann Coffey

REALTORS are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reports that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR again.

Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime. Transactions today usually exceed $100,000. If you had a $100,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a CPA? If you had a $100,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be foolish to consider a deal in real estate without the professional assistance of a REALTOR.
