"Brenda was very easy to reach, knowledgeable and friendly.

Bruce & Louise

Brenda was a great realtor, she worked with me throughout my home search in order to find something that fit my needs while staying within budget.

I would highly recommend working with her or ReMax for anyone looking to move to the Dubuque area.

Elliot Carlovsky

"Your approach was great for us.

You put no pressure on us to buy or make a quick deal. You tried to show us all properties we were interested in and found new ones you thought would be of interest to us. You were patient with us, especially after we had a bad experience with another home deal. You were available nearly every time we wanted you to show us property, or you’d adjust a schedule to fit us in. Your email updates were especially helpful with an out-of-town search. Thanks."

Kevin & Sean

Brenda did a great job helping us through our home buying process.

She did a great job keeping us updated with newly available properties, and when we found the place we wanted she had extremely clear and useful instruction for us as first time home buyers. Brenda's recommendations on inspectors and lawyers was excellent.

Brenda was outstanding.

She is very knowledgeable, honest and trustworthy. Brenda has so much knowledge of the market that she was able to get us a price that was better than we had hoped. She was extremely quick to respond and went beyond the call of duty. We are very thankful for all of her help and hard work. We will definitely work with her again when it is time to buy and sell. Thank you Brenda!!

Dave & Pat

Brenda Charlson was an excellent resource in making a cross-country move; she was willing to work with us over the phone & email.

Brenda asked our needs & searched for properties that would meet those needs & gave candid feedback on homes & areas of town; to help in our decision-making. Brenda was willing to be in communication with our selling realtor, to make the business side of selling in 1 state & buying in another go more smoothly. When we were able to meet in person, she did not hesitate to take us to look at as many potential homes as we wanted, even doing a walk-thru of another prospect, after we left; for us & relaying a candid & accurate description. As it turned out, that was the home we did purchase & we are very pleased with it…Brenda’s input was spot-on! Brenda also kept us updated on the progress of the transaction, coordinating the legal/monetary actions required & explaining the steps that I didn’t understand; in a manner that was helpful as a home buyer. Brenda was an essential asset to my home-buying experience!

Brenda was extremely helpful in selling my current home, finding a new home, and closing on the new home.

She is very responsive and will go out of her way to make sure the seller/buyer is comfortable and happy. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell.


Brenda was simply an outstanding agent from beginning to end.

She was perfect for us, especially since we were "going out-of-state" clients. She walked us through every step of the process and was completely available every time we reached out to her. The transaction was smooth and easy all the way through the closing date. She negotiated between us as sellers and the new buyers with expertise, compassion and patience for all -- not always an easy task! We highly recommend her for both buying and selling any property.

Karen Turner

Keith & Kelly

When Meghan and I were looking for our first home, we did what any first time home buyers do. the realtor on the sign in the yard of the house we wanted to buy. Little did we know that we would get so lucky. We have now purchased 3 houses and sold 2 houses through Brenda. She is patient and brings a calming presence to the process. Her professionalism and diligence are unmatched. She always made our times work for showings, requests for additional walk throughs, questions, etc. I highly recommend Brenda if you're looking for a smooth buying/selling process.

Matt & Meghan

Brenda is absolutely wonderful to work with.

She helped us sell and also buy a home. She helps make every part of the process easier and is always available when you call. She is honestly the most professional and efficient realtor I've ever met. I'm so very happy we went with her. She is now the only realtor I care to do business with and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone needing a realtor! I referred my sister to Brenda recently and she shares my sentiment. Wonderful experiences all around, in a business that can be very emotional and difficult, no less.

Kelly Marie

Brenda Chrlason was our Realtor for 484 Tannin Ct.

Dubuque, She sold our home the first day it was actually listed. She was with us every step of the way from listing to closing. She was available all the time, and in a very short time. Her response to our needs and questions was amazing. She calmed our fears with just a few words. She's extremely professional, and I would certainly highly recommend Brenda. We would certainly call on her if we ever need a realtor again. Amazing service from her.
