Brenda Shores - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Brenda is professional.

Her knowledge of the real estate process, and the market and keeping us informed of what to expect each step of the way, was very much appreciated. Brenda got to know us, and what was important to us in a home and location. She helped us find a house that was just right for us! She made us feel we were her only client because of her attention to detail and responding promptly to all questions/inquiries. As Brenda’s client, we felt very special. Brenda did not disappear after our closing. She has stayed in touch, provided additional guidance, and made us feel she really appreciated our business. She is simply the BEST!

Mike and Pam

If it wasn’t for Shores Reality I would of given up on the house buying process all together.

They were patient, understanding, very informative, and truly put in the work to find a house that was right for our family. If you’re looking for relators that go above and beyond you have found them. Most relationships stop at the closing date but not here. Brenda and Craig are nothing less than family to us now.

I have referred ALL of my family and friends to Brenda Shores because there is simply no better realtor!

Our first time home buying process was SO easy and quick and we do credit this ALL to Brenda!

Brenda Shores’ team was amazing to work with from day one!

We were assigned a couple of different choices for relocation, but could not have personally chosen a better fit when selecting her. She is genuinely a nice and warm person, making you feel like you have known her from the first meeting. Karissa's marketing presentation was professional and thorough, showing you exactly how they were going to market your home to sell fast- and that is exactly what happened! We were first-time home sellers, and Brenda was with us every step of the way to answer questions and provide us comfort and support when challenges arose. Her team went above and beyond to show up and help when our schedules were conflicting with buyer's appointments and a trusted opinion and physical body was needed. If we ever return back to KC, she will get our business time and time again!

Travis and Hope

Determined to take care of her clients!

Brenda is willing to go the extra mile to help with difficult decisions. Brenda's office provides quality feedback and makes the buying and selling experience bearable. My parents recently sold their 30-year-old house. It had a few issues and the 1st buyers backed out of the deal. Brenda and her team within 48 hours had another buyer and we sold the house at our asking price. The Shore's team is 2nd to none! If you want the job done right and a person who is looking out for your best interest. Brenda is the way to go!!!

Mark and Toni

There are so many things that created this 5 Star rating!

The Shores team worked together to always support us in the most positive way. Brenda is knowledgeable, experienced, professional and positive! I’d most definitely recommend them to anyone!

Brenda walked through my parents' home prior to putting it on the market and advised us on the best way to proceed.

Because of her connections in the area, Brenda was able to bring us a buyer who met our needs quickly. She advised that we did not need to spend time and money fixing the place up to sell, and she was right - it sold very quickly for assessed value to a buyer who wanted to fix it up himself. Because of her connections she was aware of a potential buyer who made us a great offer and closed quickly.

The Shores Real Estate team goes above and beyond to meet our needs.

They are prompt and attentive! With our last home, we were working on a strict deadline. They met us several times with very little notice to view homes and worked well into the evenings to keep the process moving forward. Sure enough, we bought and sold our homes in record time. And who would expect your real estate agent to have excellent babysitting skills? Corralling our little ones while we went from house to house was a job in itself. We definitely recommend Shores Real Estate!

Brian and Kristina

After taking a position in Kansas City, my family and I relocated from Iowa.

My employer suggested we use Brenda for our home search as we were new to the city. Brenda helped our family find our dream home in one day. After looking at several homes that we thought we were interested in, Brenda suggested an open house. When we walked through the front door my husband and I knew that was going to be our home. We put the offer in and moved into the home in less than 30 days. I am very thankful for Brenda and her team as they made our transition to Kansas City seamless. They spent several hours in the background getting everything perfect so that we could close in 30 days and so that our whole family could be together. Without their help, I don't know what we would have done

Crystal and Jerry

Shores Real Estate really took care of us.

They are honest and knowledgeable. They made themselves available to answer our questions. Shores Real Estate exceeded my expectations and we will be going with them if/when we move. I definitely recommend this incredible team

Stephen and Jennifer

What stands out most about our experience with Shores Real Estate was the immediate responses we received, as well as the feeling that we were genuinely cared about as a person as opposed to just another revenue number.

Brenda and Karissa are fantastic when it comes to finding you your next home. We would not be in the beautiful area we are today if it weren't for Brenda going to bat for us time and time again during the offer process with the seller. They truly care about you as a person and want to ensure that your home-buying process is as seamless and stress-free as possible. We can't recommend them enough and can't wait to work with them again in the future!

Joe and Megan

This experience has been nothing short of fantastic and all the credit goes to Brenda Shores, Craig Shores, and the entire Re/Max Kansas City team in Brenda’s office.

I’ve known her and her amazing family for over 25 years. She has helped my entire family in ways I can’t explain, doing more than what is asked plus, making buying/selling a home a breeze! If you’re ever needing to purchase or sell a home, experience the BEST service imaginable, and have someone in your corner who fights for YOU and treats you like family - Brenda is your gal! We can’t thank you enough!

Austin and Megan

When we were relocating to Kansas City, Brenda was attentive to our needs and quick to assist us while we were getting ready for our out-of-state move.

She kept us up to date on inspections, closing dates, and any info that we needed. When we were ready to sell for another out-of-state move, she and Karissa went above and beyond to get our house on the market with short notice (within 3 days!). They helped keep us sane during a hectic time and made all of our appointments around our schedules. Would highly recommend Shores Real Estate!

Steven and Rachel

Brenda and team were incredible to work with!

They were professional, personable and very organized. They made a potentially stressful experience very smooth and clear. They are top notch and I would recommend them without hesitation.

Chris C

We are completely satisfied with the support and guidance provided by Brenda Shores.

From our initial phone call with her, to the end of our home sale process, she was extremely professional, ethical, and very responsive to all of our needs. Selling a home in today's constantly changing market can be very complex. Having a true professional supporting you is a necessity. Without hesitation, we recommend Brenda her team to sell your home or find your next one.

Pete L

My family has worked with Brenda and her team since we moved to Kansas City in 1992.

She has been extremely helpful, especially when I decided to purchase my first house. She walked us through the whole thing so we understood what we were doing and answered all of our questions quickly. I had a wonderful experience!

Lauren and Oliver

Brenda and Karissa were very patient explaining all parts of the real estate process and were helpful in showing us many homes that we found online through the listing portal.

They were very knowledgeable and shared with us many tips to look out for which enhanced our home-buying experience! I would use their services again and would recommend them to friends and family.


My boyfriend and I were looking to find a house in the midst of a crazy housing market that we were still not too familiar with.

We were looking for our very first house. Shores Real Estate turned anxiety into comfort by providing information and being available at all times. They showed us that we were not just customers, but people that they cared about and wanted to build a long-term relationship with. They not only helped us find a wonderful first home, but they also gave us advice and contacts to use for this first home. I've been bragging about them to those around me and would highly recommend them!

Shelby R

Brenda is such a professional!

She made the process of selling my mother’s house, completely effortless! The sale went quickly and smoothly. I would highly recommend using Brenda when buying or selling a home.

Barb E

Brenda's knowledge of the Kansas City market is exceptional.

The guidance she provided my husband and I as first-time sellers was tremendously helpful and educational. And when it came time to select the best offer, we were very pleased with her negotiation skills. We'd definitely recommend Brenda!

"Brenda and Karissa are simply the best. The process of buying and selling a home at the same time is stressful, but they made it as smooth as possible. They gave us valuable guidance on home improvements and helped us sell our home for more than we expected, on the same weekend it hit the market. Then Brenda drove all over the city for weeks to help us find a new home, and gave us the necessary advice on how to win a bid in a tight market. When the time comes, we'll be going back"

"Brenda and her team were absolutely outstanding in the entire house buying process. We were out of state buyers in a crazy sellers market and she was with us every step of the way. She was immediately available for everything we needed, very thorough in her understanding of the market and explaining all the intricacies to us (especially me, the first time home buyer!). Our sale went off without a hitch and Brenda continue to go above and beyond even after our sale was complete - she had excellent contacts that we used for painting, carpet, roofing and drywall repairs, and continued to stop by the house to make sure everything was going well until we arrived. She even coordinated with my parents who were in town and could help on site. My entire family will now recommend her and her team for any housing needs in KCMO!"

"The Shore family made the process of buying our first home EASY! Brenda and Karissa are trustworthy and dependable. We would absolutely recommend them to all of our family and friends looking to buy or sell a home. Brenda and Karissa did a great job of explaining the home buying process to us, answering all of our questions, and ensuring that we were comfortable each step of the way! We're living in our dream home now and it's comforting to know that the Shore family is still happy to help us with any questions or concerns that may arise. Thank you so much Karissa and Brenda Shores!"

"Brenda Shores and her team were outstanding and exceeded our expectations in every way. Before we engaged Brenda, we actually considered selling our home through a low-cost listing service - what a mistake that would have been had we not decided to use Brenda's service! She has the experience and market knowledge to assist sellers and buyers with every step in the process. She is professional, responsive, and ethical. She provided us with critical guidance, which resulted in us selling our home quickly and at a very fair price. I highly recommend using Brenda and her team."

"??We have been with Shores Real Estate since 2015 when we bought our first home. They were very patient with us as we searched for just the right fit. They were very helpful at educating us on the process. When we were ready to sell and move into a larger home me for our growing family, we knew the Shores would take good care of us! They sold our home for top dollar and helped find our new home quickly in a crazy market. We are thoroughly enjoying our home after welcoming our second child.Brenda is not just helpful for buying/selling, but she is always willing to answer questions we have related to home ownership including financing, home repair recommendations, etc. She also cares deeply for her clients and stays connected with us long after the house process is over.We thank God that we found Brenda! Their family has been such a blessing to us.We recommend the Shores to everyone, and now all of our immediate family have purchased/sold homes with them as well.Join the Shores Real Estate family! They are simply the best! ?"

"Truly appreciate Brenda's hard work in finding our home. She treated us like family and is very easy to work with. She even went out of her way to walk multiple properties for us via video cam when we were out-of-country. Thank you so much for your flexibility and dedication!"
