"Being 1st time sellers, Penny anticipated and met our needs almost before we knew we needed something. Then with James, answered all the new questions we discovered that needed answers. As our schedule kept changing, Penny kept working with us and made great suggestions to get the house finished and ready for sale. She kept us apprised of market conditions and when the house hit the market, it was purchased quickly. Penny and James were great to work with and their ideas were very beneficial to getting the house sold and with little stress to us as first time sellers."

We had an excellent experience with James and Penny Brockway. They addressed concerns, always in a timely manner, guided us through the process and provided the resources we needed to execute the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. At no time through the process did I feel like just another client. I felt like someone that was receiving their attention and best effort at all times. I would recommend them without hesitation.

Penny Brockway of Brockway Realty did a great job determining our needs and matching us to a house in a short period of time. We were only in town to search for a home for a few days, but Penny maximized our time and showed us exactly what we needed to make a decision. Brockway Realty kept us informed and looked out for our interest through negotiation, contract and contract amendment, and on other matters all the way to closing. Penny and the team at Brockway provided responsive and effective communication throughout the process. I would most definitely recommend Penny and Brockway Realty to assist with my friend's and family's real estate needs.

My wife and I moved from Wisconsin to Galveston County. We needed help fast in finding a house for us to make a home here in Texas. We decided to go to the League City Chamber of Commerce to see if we could find a realtor to help with our search. God must have been smiling down upon us because in walks Penny Brockway. She listened to our needs, gave us suggestions about different communities where we could look at houses. She provided us with a list of numerous houses to look thru so we could choose the ones we want to see. Penny cleared her schedule the next day to take us to find the perfect house. When we found the one we wanted to buy, James helped us with all the legal aspects and helped walk us thru the process. He was very through and knowledgeable in explaining every detail which helped put us at ease. James and Penny Brockway went above and beyond in helping us find a house, and they provided us contacts with people that can help with all the services we would need to complete our move into the house. Moving and relocating is always difficult, but the Brockway’s put us at ease and made the difficult task as easy as possible. They were always available for all our needs, we felt as if we were more than clients, but good friends.

Penny Brockway is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. Penny listened to our needs and found the perfect rental property for our large family. Penny made the home search process easy. She promptly responded to our phone calls and emails and she was always available to show us properties. Penny truly cares about the clients she represents.

Meredith Armstrong

 

I looked at several properties and I actually entered into a contract on a property that proved to be a bit problematic due to a very difficult and inflexible Seller. With the guidance and consultation of Brockway Realty, we decided to withdraw the offer as the contract terms were not in my best interest. As a result, I was able to identify a property that was more in line with my expectations and actually turned out to be a better overall fit for me. The experience and business acumen that Brockway Realty offers was instrumental in protecting my best interests and preventing me from accepting an unfair transaction. Thank you for making my buying experience smooth and hassle-free!

Moving can be hard, moving from another country is much harder, everything was new for us, but Penny was just amazing helping us to find a good and convenient area to live, she always answered really fast and made the process a lot easier.

Sofia Carolina Valdes Pinal

 

We are not the type that write many reviews, but we wanted to take some time to appreciate the Brockways. This is our first time to purchase a home, and we could not have imagined it going any better. Throughout the entire process, Penny and James were helpful, insightful, and quick to respond to any needs or questions. They were both very knowledgeable about the areas that we were looking and helped us find the perfect home! Anyone in search of a new home should contact the Brockways, as they will ensure you find the home for you!

Blake and Erin Palmer

 

I had the most wonderful experience working with Penny and James with the sale of my house. They were there to answer any and all questions I had along the way and guided me with the best way to prepare my home to sell. They went above and beyond to ensure that my home selling experience was an easy and seamless transaction. I would recommend their services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Kristina Brewer

 

The Brockways are the complete "realtor" package. We had the opportunity to work with Penny Brockway during the sale of my father's home after his passing. Penny has a great sense or décor and helped us tremendously with staging of existing furniture and showing us what should be removed. The house looked transformed when we listed and both Brockways held our hands through the entire process. Penny and James were an absolute joy to work with from beginning to end. Engaging, professional and highly competent, we give them our highest recommendation.

My husband, Robert Karlen, was appointed Executor of his mother's will at the beginning of 2014. My husband is not in good health but he was determined to do a good job concerning his mother's estate. But his sister-in-law contested the will and the process took over 15 months to resolve. When were able to put my mother-in-law's house on the market and we hired Penny and James Brockway. They advised us wisely in the beginning stages of the sale of the house. They hired a wonderful contractor to make the house look its best!! They kept us updated on all the activities concerning the house. We had 3 offers in less than a week and closed on the house in 3 weeks. Selling a house is always stressful. In our case the legal problems added to the stress. But Penny and James made the entire process smooth and rewarding.

Robert and Dee Ann Karlen

 

We recently purchased a home with help from Brockway Realty. The whole experience from looking at homes to closing was smooth and easy; the reason being that Penny and James are intentional in making it that way. Penny has a gift for listening to what you want in a house and then leading you to "the one". She also maintained calm throughout rants and frustrations that occurred occasionally. ;) We would highly recommend this wonderful team.

"James and Penny Brockway are the best. They put so much of their selves into selling your house and making sure you get the best price. You can tell they love what they do and you will not find more honest people than they are. I tell all my friends and family if they are selling their house they are crazy if they don't use them.”

Sondra Sanchez

 

He was helpful and knowledgeable. It was good to feel that you have an expert that makes you feel at ease. He was available on most occasions and called back promptly. There was never an opportunity that I felt left out of the process.

Ann Barzar

 

Brockway Realty was extremely helpful. We looked at both existing and to be built homes. Even though we decided to build a home, they still worked with us through the process helping us to find sub contractors, answer questions about school districts , and helping us with feedback to the builder. They were very knowledgable and timely with their help and support.

The Kaysen Family, League City, Texas

 

I highly recommend James and Penny Brockway with Brockway Realty. Buying a home for our family in Texas while relocating from North Carolina, seemed daunting. Without the benefit of time or local knowledge, we were concerned about our ability to make the right choices. Our main source of anxiety was that we didn't know anyone locally or the area in general. My wife and I were impressed by the time James and Penny spent showing us the different neighborhoods within multiple cities and explaining the pros and cons of each area. Once we found a home they gave us purchasing strategies that definitely benefited us.

Their knowledge, resourcefulness and professionalism is outstanding. Again, I highly recommend them and assure you that you will not be disappointed if you select Brockway Realty!

Jim Tagliareni, League City, Texas

 

It was a great experience; every minor detail was executed with precision. The Brockway Realty team did a great job making sure we got our house at a great price and provided valuable follow up information to help with our new home ownership transition.

Steven and Laura Rupert

 

Brockway Realty is a dynamic company! I bought my house last summer and I love the house I am in with my son. In 2011, I became a widow and went through a very difficult time. During this difficult time, James and Pablo educated me in the housing market. They listened to what I wanted for my son and me in a house. After two years with their guidance, I found the perfect house for my son and me! James and Pablo were extremely knowledgeable and great listeners during this stressful time for me. Anytime I had a question they were there for me! I learned so much from them and am very grateful for all they did for my son and me. If you are ready to sell or buy your house...Brockway Realty is "The Cream of the Crop!"

Lynne and Hunter Brown

 

James and Penny were awesome! They took a very challenging purchase and made it manageable. They assisted me fully throughout the entire process and answered all my questions. I couldn't have asked for better realtors and when it comes time to sell and upgrade I will be calling Brockway Realty.

Mark Young

 

James and Penny Brockway helped me find my first home. They were very patient and helpful with each step in the homebuyer experience. They were also very prompt in keeping me informed and answering my questions. I would recommend James and Penny to anyone looking for a home for the first time.

Janese Parks, Pearland, Texas

 

If we could give James 10 stars, we would. He was an excellent person to have on our side when buying our home. He was very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. He made us feel like we were his only clients. He was VERY quick to respond to our emails, texts, and phone calls. As you may or may not know, buying a house can be quite stressful, but with James on our side, he calmed our nerves and maintained a positive attitude. He gets the job! You don't have to worry or wonder if he is on your side, doing his job. He helps your home ownership dream come true and gives 110%. It was GREAT working with James and know who we will be contacting should we have any future real estate needs.

Veronica and Chads Evetts, Houston, Texas

 

Penny/James….I wanted to share with each of you our experiences with both you.

The best words I can describe your service are that we were treated like “family.” We were listened to as to what our desires were, even when we changed our minds each week for four straight weeks. Our initial desire was a condo somewhere around the water, then a lot, then a house, then a lot, then a house. We ended up with a wonderful house on the bay and we are so excited. This is just what we wanted.

Throughout all of our searches, we received prompt communication through emails/chats/phone calls, timely viewings, and on-time meetings. This was extremely important to us since we were travelling from such a long distance away to our search area of San Leon/Kemah. I would recommend your company for anyone that is looking for the personal touch.

Sheila & Gunner Gilmore

 

Penny & James Brockway,

I wanted to take a few minutes and thank you for all you did in helping us search for our new home in League City, Texas. We also appreciate the patience and support that you two have given us even after closing. I will highly recommend Brockway Realty to anyone looking to buy or sell their next home.

Best Regards,

Mr. & Mrs. Rudy Salcedo and Family

 

James,

I wanted to thank you again for helping me purchase my new home! You were a great asset during the entire process right up through the close in July. I really appreciated your knowledge of the market in the area and the fact you brought forward many options for me to consider. I was truly impressed by your patience, support and advice especially since I am a first time home buyer. There is no question I would recommend you highly to all my friends as your performance record speaks for itself! It is easy to see you are and will continue to be one of the top agents in the area.

Thank you again,

Jamie McCurdy, PHR, Pearland, Texas

 

Mr. Brockway went out of his way as a realtor to make sure we saw every possible property on Lake Livingston before making our decision. He spent weekends and long hours helping my wife and me understand the advantages and disadvantages of each piece of lakefront property we looked at. My wife and I had very different expectations on what we wanted out of our second home. Mr. Brockway was very considerate of both our needs and he found many properties that we both could agree on. Mr. Brockway made this experience fun and we ended up with a fantastic home. On top of that, Mr. Brockway negotiated an excellent deal saving us a lot of money. Thank you for a great experience.

Bill Burger, Houston, Texas

 

In early 2011 I was beginning my search for my very first home. As a first time home buyer I didn’t know much about the process or what was going to be involved, but I knew I was ready to buy because of the market and the fact I was tired of renting an apartment.

I’ve lived in League City my entire life, but I worked on the west side of Houston up near Katy. I wanted to try and move closer to work but not too far from everything I knew and loved in League City.

Enter James Brockway, who came highly recommended to me by a few friends and family members. James took the time to help me research several areas around town and narrow in on a few possible areas. I quickly became very excited about the Master Planned Community of Shadow Creek Ranch in Pearland. We both agreed this was a good middle commute between both my work and my desire to still be relatively close to League City.

James took the time to spend two separate Saturdays showing me all the houses that met my criteria, quickly helping me narrow down my list of desirable homes and crossing off the ones I didn’t really care for.

After all of that we had a few stops left in League City and then, it happened, I found THE house. I immediately knew that this was the house for me. The irony of my decision? The house ended up being in Tuscan Lakes in League City, which happened to be the subdivision across the street from the apartments I was currently living in.

After deciding on the house, James assisted me the entire way. He took a very seemingly unknown and difficult process and made me feel like I had done it 100 times. I never once felt lost through the entire transaction.

If and when I buy my next house, James will definitely be my agent of choice. If you are looking for an agent to represent you, both in buying or selling, I highly recommend James, it is the smart choice.

Thanks James, I really appreciate everything you did for me!

Matthew BuPane - League City, Texas

 

We have used James in both selling an existing home and purchasing a new home. He was a tremendous help to us in both transactions. James was very accessible and always made us feel like we were his top priority. We were very impressed with his insight and knowledge of the real estate market. He will definitely be the only agent/broker we will ever use.

Steve & Cindy Lombardo, The Woodlands, TX

 

I’ve been a client of James Brockway for over 5 years. During this time he has negotiated two home transactions for me. As a listing agent, his professionalism, rapid response to inquiries and window dressing advice helped me sell my home in 30 days. As a negotiator handling the purchase of my new home, his knowledge, tenacity and skill resulted in a purchase price well below list.

During periods in between transactions, James is there for real estate advice from market conditions in an area I’m interested in to refinancing an existing loan. James has his customers’ best interests in mind and takes the time to do things right.

J. Provencio, Jr., Spring, Texas

 

James represented us six years ago, both selling our old home and buying a new one, and if my wife and I decided it was time to sell, he would be the only call I would need to make. An extremely well-rounded, smart man who has a knack for making each family feel like they are his only client.

Eric Johnson, Houston, Texas

 

As first time home buyers me and my wife were so blessed to have had Mr. Brockway on our side to help us find a home that met all of our wants and needs. His savvy, professional character was evident right from the start. He is so current on anything that deals with real-estate and/or the purchasing process. His knowledge and attitude is one that made us feel safe during the entire process. He made sure that we never had any doubt about anything we were doing. Thanks to Mr. Brockway we are now owners of a great house in the Spring Branch area where we have wanted to live and for the right price!! We know exactly who to call from now on when it comes to Real Estate!!

Art & Reesa Nevarez, Houston, Texas

 

My wife and I were first time home buyers when we chose James to become our agent. We wanted to find a house inside the loop, near the Heights, and he couldn’t have made our expedition any smoother. He was able to answer any of our numerous questions, and he also guided us by showing us the things to look for (both positive and negative) in the home buying experience.

Unfortunately for James, we took up three of his weekends looking for the right house, but we all persevered, and my wife and I have been very happy with our final choice. We now live two blocks from Memorial Park, one of the true jewels of Houston. I would recommend Brockway Realty to anyone. And now that his wife, Penny, has been added to the team, the service will get even better!

Dr. John Tavares. Houston, Texas

 

Dependability, professionalism and timeliness are some of the most important qualities a person can have in any business, especially in today's real estate environment. James displays all three of these. He is a great man, with great ideas that will carry and advise his clients and colleagues to go far and make sound, smart decisions on their brokerage needs. James and I have worked on a number of single tenant retail transactions in the Texas market and his knowledge and ability to look at both sides of the deal has been a remarkable quality in getting tough deals across the finish line. I would recommend and work with James in any facet of the real estate business as he is knowledgeable in all of them!
