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. Barry Bailey DDS
Bennie is the most knowledgeable and honest real estate agent I've ever worked with. He has been extremely helpful to me in locating and purchasing over 50 investment properties in the Hill country/Canyon Lake area over the past 3 years. I am very impressed with his knowledge of the market as well as the various restrictions and HOA rules of the different subdivisions.
Bennie is awesome. He WILL get you the best deal possible on real estate, he knows his stuff ! I saved thousands working with him and purchased 5 acres in Wagoner Ranch.
Our experience working with Bennie was absolutely incredible. He really took the time to listen to our search criteria and then collaborated with us to find the best possible home. We enjoyed working with him every step of the way and made us feel like we were his only/most important clients. Bennie made the process seamless and truly has a gift for this type of work. We highly recommend him!
It takes more than a few words to describe the quality of service provided by Mr. Brownlee. He made this experience much more than a successful transaction. He was and has remained a guide, mentor and most important, a real person. He understands that we all have dreams and their importance. He respects our wants and wishes; and with that respect and understanding he helps make this dreams come true. Our family is forever thankful. Respectfully, Diana Cabezas
Bennie was an incredible asset and partner in my search for a property in the Canyon Lake area. He knows the history and status of just about every inch of property around Canyon Lake. He is very skilled at first understanding the goals and priorities of his clients and then focusing on the best opportunities for them. I was completely new to the Canyon Lake area when I first met Bennie, and I valued the patience he had with me as I worked through what I was really looking for. I also appreciated his constant willingness to go the extra mile to help me find the best fit for my goals and the best deal for my budget. In addition to being an outstanding real estate professional, I found Bennie to be a man of pure integrity... the type of partner you'd like to have for any large personal or business transaction.
Bennie has extensive knowledge of real estate in this area and is very professional in his work with customers. He helped us get in our home in record time and helped with anything that we needed.
We purchased two pieces of property on Canyon Lake and can't imagine any one could do a better job than Bennie did. He also helped my friends purchase their "Dream Lot" on Canyon lake. He found exactly what we were looking for. He negotiated with the owners to get a "Fair Market" price. He worked with us through the whole process and made the whole experience the best real estate purchase I have ever made. His help did not end with the sale however. he has continued to offer advice about clearing the land, temporary lodging, cess pool installers, architects, road builders, and all other phases of home construction. The most impressive thing about Bennie was his honest advice. He counseled against purchasing over priced property and found more reasonably priced parcels even though it meant loss of income for him. In my opinion he should be the first and only person you need to contact to purchase land in the Comal county area!! Extremely highly reccomended.
Bennie assisted my wife and I in purchase of property in the Texas Hill Country several years ago. His integrity and character have made all our dealings with Bennie a pleasure. Over the years he has remained an expert resource for us as we have continued to develop our property. We continue to rely upon Bennie for references with construction and contractor work efforts.
I have been dealt with Bennie Brownlee in real estate for many years and have found him to be in the very top rank of competent, honest, fair dealing real estate people. His market knowledge is top rate, and I do not know anyone better at real estate financing. Bennie would be my first stop for any real estate in his area.
Bennie will work tirelessly for you. My husband was here and I was in Colorado and I could call him and ask him anything at any time. Even after we bought the home and got settled in, he still calls and checks to make sure things are going well. He is a knowledgable resource and goes above and beyond any expectations you may have. He makes buying a home enjoyable!! He was our first experience with friendly Texans, thanks so much Bennie!
Bennie was very honest, up front, helpful, and made the purchasing process less stressful. He has also been very helpful after we purchased our property by guiding us to a builder, explaining the process, and helping with the appraisal. I would highly recommend Bennie for any of your real estate needs.
Bennie Brownlee, seems to have his finger on the pulse of the hill country market more than any other agent that I have been in touch with. For someone looking for a lot or a house they are short changing themselves by not getting in touch with Bennie
Bennie has excellent knowledge of the area and spends time as much time as required with the buyer. We had driven from houston without an appointment, however, he accomodated us within his schedule and discussed our needs in detail. He has a excellent database of availabile properties as well as specialised knowledge of the area. He understood our needs and worked hard to to find properties that suited our needs. We ended up with purchasing one of the properties and our experience during the transaction was completely trouble free. I would highly recommend Bennie!
We told Bennie the type of property we were looking for and the price range. Bennie not only found the perfect property he followed and helped us all the way to signing the paperwork and closing. We sent a friend of ours to him and the same thing happened. I would recommend Bennie Brownlee to everyone.
Wow! Benny provided an unexpected experience each time we met. He was always available to answer questions and show houses. He had fantastic knowledge of the area and he has many connections to help after you move in should you need anything. I was very impressed with his people skills and willingness to do what ever it took to make sure I was happy and confident in my decisions. I will not hesitate to use him again or recommend him to anyone. After one year I still feel I can call on him for anything I might need in real estate or otherwise.
Bennie was God sent. We were out of state on a job looking at home prospects on-line, dreaming of retiring in the Canyon Lake area. One day I bit the bullet and clicked “contact an agent” and within minutes received a call from Bennie. It was smooth sailing from that point. I cannot express enough how compassionate he is in helping you find the right place and he knows the area like the back of his hand. He patiently spent an entire weekend with us looking at several homes, some more than once. After opening only a few doors he seemed to know what we were looking for and was determined to find that perfect home for us. It had been 30 years since we had purchased our last home which we loved, but was not in the area we wanted to retire. So Bennie had his work cut out for him, I am very head strong, not one to settle until I find exactly what I’m looking for. AND HE DID, we now own a beautiful home of our dreams… Bennie was extremely knowledgeable and shared with us all the steps in bringing the transaction to a smooth closing. I think of him now as a new jewel in our circle of friends. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a home or property in this area. Thank You Bennie!!!
Bennie recently sold a home for me. He is hard working and very responsive to your needs. He is so hard working that he came out to my property to see it on a rainy day and he was already soaking wet from working at other properties. He didn't even bother to go home to change so that he could meet me on my way home from work. I had gone to 2 other agents prior to contacting Bennie. 1 of the agents didn't return my phone call until well after 24 hours and the other didn't contact me after viewing my home and me sending them pictures. Luckily that agent couldn't find the time to deal with me because Bennie got me $20K more than that agent said my house would bring. I will definitely use Bennie again and will not think twice about recommending him to my friends and neighbors. I honestly feel blessed that I read his reviews on this site and chose him to represent me.
I just want to take the time to thank Bennie for everything. Bennie helped me find the right home to rent here in the Canyon Lake area. I was trying to find a place close to San Antonio and Austin TX, moving from California to Texas and not knowing the area is hard to find the proper place. I had looked in to many realtors and a lot of different places I was bit frustrated and I said to myself this is it I am just going to check this once more if I can't find anything I am giving up. as soon as I open the rental web side I bump into Bennie's advertising I click saw a ph# and this is it he is going to help me, it was 9pm Saturday night California time I forgot we were in different time zone. hooops but Bennie answer my call from then on he was on the roll to help me find the proper place to move in. He knew all the properties for rent! He is professional, friendly, helpful and he goes the extra mile to put the renter or buyer at ease. He was always easy to get a hold of too. I look forward to working with Bennie again when it is time to rent or buy. Thank you Bennie. The place is just perfect and great. Best Regards. Rocio from California
I was looking for a place at Canyon Lake and found Bennie on the Zillow Website. He was extremely helpful and courteous. We looked at several properties and he was very patient and knowledgable. He kept me in the loop throughout the purchase process and helped negotiate a very fair deal on our behalf. I will certainly use him again if we are ever in the market to purchase any real-estate.
Mr. Bennie Brownlee responded to my requested for information expediently, and then listened to what my requirements and wishes were and proceeded to find properties that fit those needs. I was impressed with his knowledge of the Canyon Lake market and I am grateful that he never wasted my time by showing me property or homes that did not fit my interests. Mr. Brownlee helped me look at properties and determine what was or was not feasible for building a home. Once we narrowed down the possibilities to one, Mr. Brownlee helped me favorably negotiate the terms of the sale and also connected me with a very good builder. I appreciate the attention and expertise Mr. Brownlee has given me through the whole process of looking, buying and building.
Bennie is absolutely the best. I knew nothing about buying land, but I had a desire to buy some property. Bennie not only pointed me to the right neighborhood, he pointed me to the best properties and walk with me through the entire process. He also help me get two great properties for the price I would have spent for one. My wife and I was not able to show for the closing for one of the properties we bought, so he arranged to have the closing done at our home, Amazing!
Bennie was very attentive to balance the needs/wishes for both me and my wife. He was very open and straightforward about the properties available, and their value. Very knowledgeable of the area and buying process. Had great tools for evaluating the properties available. He provided great service before and after the sell.
Our experience with Benny was great!!!!! Showed us exactly what we were looking for and made us feel very comfortable during the whole process.. I could call at anytime and ask for help or more listings. If your in the market for a home just contact Benny and start packin!! We feel really blessed...thanks Benny
I just want to take the time to thank Bennie for everything. Bennie helped us find the right home to rent here in the Canyon Lake area. We want to buy in a year or two, so we wanted to get a feel for the area. He knew all the properties for rent and sale nearby! He is professional, friendly and puts the renter/buyer at ease. He was always easy to get a hold of too. We look forward to working with Bennie again when it is time to buy. Thank you Bennie.
When looking for a house one of the most important things to consider is a great realtor. Bennie Browniee is the best, not because he says he is, because he will tell you, but because he is. He is more than a realtor he makes you feel that he is part of your family looking out for your best interest. If something is not right he will tell you and then have the solution to make it right. When I had questions he had answers even at 10 oclock at night. A very dedicated representative. He knows his areas like the back of his hand.He has software that is high tec to make your property searches easy and informative. And in the future I will always continue to use his services.
Bennie is very knowledgable and has a great attitude that outshines any other agent I have ever met. We had our house listed with another agent for 4 months we had many offers and 4 contracts none of which closed. Bennie was stellar. He had a contract immediately and closed within six weeks and we got top market value! Bennie made it so easy! If you are looking for a top notch agent who has your best interest in mind, Bennie is your man! I would recommend Bennie to anyone and everyone!
Bennie helped us find a small acreage tract in Spring Branch with the amenities and view we were looking for. He was quite knowledgeable of the real estate market and the area. He made the purchase process easy. I highly recommend using Bennie to assist in buying in that area.
Bennie was excellent. He really knows his job, and does it well. He went above and beyond in our land buying process, and helped us tremendously. He was there at closing and made sure everything was settled and done. He also answered questions about the HOA and gave me contact info quickly so I could get those things settled. It's stressful to go through the buying process, but Bennie really helped us out.
Bennie made our first time buying a home a great experience. He is extremely knowledgeable on the entire process and over the top helpful. I can see how buying a home could be very stressful, but Bennie knows the ropes and prepared us for the next move every time. Not only did Bennie help us get into our home, but when we needed contractors for upgrades/fixes, Bennie knew the right folks for the right price. Bennie is a very respectful man that I would recommend to anyone looking to buy/sell or just learn more about hill country living. Thanks again, Bennie. The Donaldsons
Bennie is a true pro, he really knows the entire Canyon Lake area well which is where we were looking to buy. He's very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He was a great negotiator and we feel like he helped us get a great deal on our lake home. We highly recommend him! Experience counts! Go with the best!
Bennie went above and beyond our expectations on our sale and purchase. He knew the land extremely well and helped us find the perfect home for our new family. We will be using him for any and all future home buying/selling decisions.
Great realtor! Worked extensively and patiently with me to help me find the perfect home. Bennie's knowledge of the local area and growth helped in many ways. Bennie was always punctual and did a great job mapping out our route each day avoiding delays and maximizing the best use of my time. Truly a professional and a pleasure doing business with.
Bennie was a pleasure work with. He really helped take the stress out of our purchase. He is supper knowledgeable about the area and has a good grasp of the contracts and what should be in them to protect your interests. He is a pleasure to work with, and when we are ready to purchase again he will be our go to guy. Thanks Bennie, your the best!
Bennie was recommended to us by our builder, but I still did my research and found that he had extensive knowledge of the real estate market in our area of interest. We looked at lots in several areas of the hill country and what we appreciated was he explained the topography of the land, how it could affect the house placement, and potential cost of building on the lot. Coming from a flat area of Texas these were things we were not familiar and helped us in our decision of which lot to purchase. We had a difficult purchase as the lot went into foreclosure after we had made an offer and the bank then became involved. Bennie handled all of the details, negotiations and communications between the seller, builder, bank and kept us updated on the general progress of the sale purchase. Only at the closing did we get to hear about all of the craziness involved in getting the purchase "done". If we had known all of the details of the negotiations , my husband said he would have walked away! It was nice that Bennie handled all of the details and did not share ALL of that with us--he just got the job done! He took care of us even though we knew he had several other clients he was working with and his other projects. He accommodated our schedules as we had to travel from out of town for appointments and communicated regularly with us through texts and phone messages. We have recommended him to friends that live in the Canyon Lake area and San Antonio area. We were pleased with his services despite the extended length of time to close the purchase (not his fault).
We have had a great experience with Bennie. He has been a great help before and after our purchase of a fantastic home. He responds quickly to any questions and if he doesn't have the answer right then, he will get an answer shortly there after. He is a man of his word. He works hard for you and as his client you know you're in good hands. We certainly will recommend him to our family and friends.
