I have never worked with anyone so consistently competent and reliable, on top of her game, and just a true joy to be with. Brenda brought to the discussions a sound appreciation of the financial, legal and political risks in each transaction, as well as the resource values and community benefits that would accrue following a closing. No question in my mind that she is a genuine rock star in the field of land conservation.
