About Brenda Carter
As I scrambled up the trellis toward the open second story window, I was grateful I had chosen to wear pants!
Earlier, my young clients, who were first time homebuyers, had called me to see an 1800’s two-story farmhouse on 10 acres in New Kent. Because it would take almost an hour to get there, I had been careful to ask the listing agent if the house was on a lockbox. When we arrived, it was nowhere to be found.
We did notice that a second story window was partially open and a trellis lay directly beneath it. I made up my mind that I was not driving back to Williamsburg without showing my clients the house they loved, so, amidst their protests, I began to climb. Halfway up, someone on the ground yelled at me to to move! A BLACK SNAKE about 5 feet long and as big as my forearm was perched on a ledge right next to me.
There are moments that make us pause and contemplate the direction of our lives, but, for me, this was not one of them. Even though my fear of snakes is rivaled only by Indiana Jones, I kept moving. I reached the window and slid through. When I opened the front door, I said, “After all that, I know you WILL be buying this house.” They DID!
It is that kind of passion, humor and scrappiness that has made me a successful Realtor since beginning my career over 20 years ago. Being a Realtor is the only job I have ever had. I love my clients, my jobs and my co-workers.
I love Williamsburg where I have lived most of my adult life. “It is a charming town with lots to do.” My husband and I regularly take spinning classes and lift weights at our local gym. On my 40th birthday, my husband gave me 3 horseback riding lessons. After 3 lessons, I was smitten, and have not stopped riding since. I now ride and show Dressage horses.
