Jenny & Matthew Rosen recommends Brian Crewey

Home Buyers

Brian was an invaluable asset throughout the entire home buying process. His knowledge of the local real estate market as well as his attention to detail during the viewing process made shopping for a home an enjoyable experience. Once we were under contract, Brian had superb recommendations on everything from home inspectors to property surveyors. He was eager & willing to reach out to providers for quotes, schedule consultations and attend as many appointments as possible. Always quick to respond, we could relax knowing that Brian was on top of every aspect of our home purchase. We are so grateful for all his hard work & dedication and would highly recommend Brian to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Michael Kenyon recommends Steven Montgomery

Organizational Change Management Administrator at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center

I would not have wanted to work with anyone but Steven. He knows the Triad very well and really helped keep everything on track through closing. He is low pressure and he listens. Great agent!

Josh Kotelnicki recommends Steven Montgomery


As someone moving to the area from distance, we felt it was very important for us to find a realtor who knew the area well and that we could trust. We lucked-out finding Steven. His knowledge of the Triad paid off when we had to pivot on the price range in the middle of our search. Steven also patiently took the time to answer all of my and my wife's questions regarding real estate laws and processes in NC that were different from where we were coming from. Excellent knowledge of the area, excellent understanding of the real estate business, excellent with follow-thru, and excellent with the little "value add-ons" of making our process of buying a new home as smooth as possible. I would strongly recommend him.

Marcus Harshaw recommends Jessica Heard

Vice President of Education & Facilities at Kaleideum North

It is very rare to come across someone with as much personality and talent in real estate as Jessica Heard. She is simply the best real estate professional that I have ever encountered. My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Jessica on our relocation to Winston-Salem from Indianapolis. After deciding that we were not in the position to purchase a home, and needed to find somewhere to rent, Jessica continued to work on our case anyway, gave up a Saturday morning, and set us up on a day of rental property visits. Her tireless nature, outgoing, personality, knowledge of the area, and passion for her profession is unmatched, and put us at ease. The experience felt more like finding a new friend in an unfamiliar city rather than just another real estate transaction. We found the perfect home, and are enjoying every minute of living here. She is the perfect person to make someone new to the area feel welcome, and when we are ready to buy in a few years, she'll be the first and only call we'll make!

Kathleen Pounds recommends Cheryl Gross

Summit School Librarian

For many years Cheryl was one of the most reliable, hard working, and personable parent volunteers in our school library. She quickly learned library routines and procedures; persisted even when tasks may have been tedious or confusing; and offered helpful suggestions for improvements. She understood that the heart of our work focused on assisting students and teachers, and she treated all with respect as she worked to meet their needs. Cheryl’s competence, deep commitment, and devotion made her a valuable, if unofficial, member of our staff, and helped us to provide the best service possible to our community.

Anna Milholland recommends Juan Carlos Lebrija

Librarian, Higher Education

We chose Juan Carlos as the listing agent for our home, because of his attention to detail, knowledge of the real estate industry, and professionalism. Juan Carlos understands the value of building strong, professional relationships with his clients, and he was always respectful of our needs and time. Juan Carlos was prompt for appointments, and he always tried to schedule meetings/conversations when it was most convenient for us. His pricing strategy and marketing strategy were on-target, as we received multiple requests to view our home within minutes after the property entered the market. Within hours, we received and accepted an offer that exceeded our listing price. Throughout the process, Juan Carlos communicated with us regularly about offers, appointments, inspections, and inspection results. He is a strategic negotiator, and his expertise in this area ensured a Win/Win situation for all parties involved. Juan Carlos exceeded our expectations in every way. If you want to sell your house, list it with Juan Carlos Lebrija!

As her client’s lender and settlement agent, it was an absolute pleasure to work with Amanda. In this complicated world of lending regulations, Amanda helped make the process for her client seamless.

John & Janet Boyst recommends Cindy Rosenberg

Working with Cindy Rosenberg and Frances Giaimo was the best experience we’ve ever had with a realtor. We had listed with other realtors prior to choosing Berkshire Hathaway. Our house was shown more with BH than all of the others combined. Cindy and Frances were very attentive to all details and stayed in communication with us at all times. I would highly recommend!!

Danielle Berger recommends Jessica Heard

Production Supervisor

Jessica was extremely helpful when looking for an apartment to rent in an area I was completely unfamiliar with. Jessica not only took us to every apartment complex in the area, she also gave us so much information about the area and different activities based on our interests. I would highly recommend working with Jessica to find a home or apartment in the Winston-Salem area!

Denise Chouinard-Thompson recommends Katie Trenerowski

Denise Chouinard-Thompson

Our family delights in Ms Katie and the tutoring she provides our 16-year-old, so much so that we have even invited her entire family to join us for activities. Ms. Katie obviously cares about the whole child, not merely the academic portion which we treasure. In addition to subject tutoring, Ms. Katie is a mentor which we value more than math success. It is apparent Ms. Katie values her faith and her family which are our two priorities as well; however, any work endeavor we have seen her participate in she is also the consummate professional - responsible, intelligent, and proactive. She is crazy smart, and we have been blessed by all interactions with her.

james brinegar recommends Steven Montgomery


I first met Steven when my daughter bought a home last year. He did a great job for her so when I wanted to downgrade I went straight to him. Steven sold my home fast, and was diligent in finding the right house for me. He always was available, very knowledgeable, helpful in all aspects. And I can say he has become a good caring friend.

Holly helped my husband and I twice already: buying a new house and selling the one we used to own.
The process was very smooth and quick, both times. She was professional, prompt, responsive, and considerate of our requests. We would sure strongly recommend hiring her as a real estate agent.
