The global COVID-19 pandemic is altering the entire real estate industry. However, Brenda Kinsey and Brendan Duffey, together with Ebby Halliday Realtors, are at the forefront in shaping industry standards and adjustments.
Partners since 2014, Brenda and Brendan have more than 30 years of combined real estate experience. They strategically mix their knowledge and professional experience to understand each customer's needs and real estate objectives.

Helping seniors has and will always be a passion for Brenda and Brendan, and they look forward to continuing this care and support through COVID-19 and for many years to come.
