Bennie Brownlee is one of those rare almost mythical individuals we refer to when we reminisce about the good old days. Knowledge, competence, and integrity. He promised us the moon, and then delivered it and added a few stars for good measure. He promised us a lot, then delivered more.
Bennie took a lot of time with us and asked a lot of questions. Pretty soon, he knew what we were looking for better than we did. At one point, I wanted to make an offer on a piece of real estate and Bennie agreed it would be a good deal and he would help us try to get it at that price. However, he kept asking us questions about our plans until we realized what he already knew. That was the wrong property for our dreams. He could have made his money then, but he put his personal gain on hold to keep us from making what he could see would have been a big mistake. Instead, he kept at it, showing us property after property that we loved, but were not quite sure of. We just did not know what we wanted, but with each property shown, he got more answers to his questions. On our third day with Bennie, after showing us another piece of real estate, just like we were asking to see, he said "I want to show you something different". He found us paradise.
Mr. Brownlee's negotiating skills are second to none. He has a gift that keeps things moving forward while keeping both sides at the table. I want him on my side whether purchasing or selling.
His service does not stop after closing. He spent an evening of his own time helping me install some electronics, just because he wanted our first days to be more enjoyable. I needed help unloading some heavy furniture and he got some guys there on short notice. I had to make them let me pay them a fair fee for the service. As a real estate developer, Bennie knows who to call for good service for just about anything.
If you are reading this far down, with all these glowing reviews, I just cannot understand why you would not let Mr. Brownlee be your guide and mentor for any real estate endeavor.
