Brenda Richert - REALTOR®
Why choose PARK CO., REALTORS®? My journey with this remarkable company spans nearly four decades, commencing in 1985 when I embarked on my real estate career. The catalyst for my choice was the extraordinary experience of buying homes through Rita Berg, a true real estate expert. This decision led me to a treasure trove of support, camaraderie, and a diverse and tightly-knit family. We face business and life's challenges together, offering unwavering support and friendship.
Stepping into PARK CO., REALTORS®, I instantly knew I had made the perfect choice. Guided by an exceptional leadership team including Barb Buchanan, Kris Sheridan, Steve Stoner, and our current owner, Jill Carlson, the company cares deeply about the professional success and personal well-being of its team members – this is the Power of Park.
Beyond work, my background is in physical education and coaching. I was a track athlete and a coach in Fargo for 15 years, and I take pride in my track achievements, including a place in the MSUM Hall of Fame in 1992.
In my personal life, I've enjoyed a fulfilling marriage to Terry for over 42 years. Terry is in the ATM business, and we've raised a son, Garrett, an imaginative comic book artist and waiter in Minneapolis. Together, we love to travel and host gatherings in our beautiful backyard. My husband loves to garden and we have a lovely yard with lots of flowers. He says weeding is his relaxation!
Volunteering is another significant part of our lives, including mission trips, hosting missionaries, and leading various small groups. However, my true passion lies in serving my clients with honesty, ethics, and wisdom, helping them fulfill their real estate dreams. It is a great blessing to me to have their trust, and I truly appreciate the opportunity to help anyone looking to move!
My expertise spans multiple areas, from guiding first-time homebuyers to assisting relocation transferees, working with move-up buyers, and navigating VA buyers through the process. I also specialize in utilizing Down Payment Assistance Programs, preparing homes for sale, pricing homes, and employing savvy negotiation skills, backed by 38 years of invaluable experience.
