Brenda Young

I’ve been in the Central Texas area since 1972, and I have a profound respect for the decisions you make regarding where to live and work.  Investing in real estate is an investment in your future, and these decisions should be just as important to the REALTOR® you choose to represent you.  

Watching the explosive growth in all the areas surrounding the IH-35 corridor gives me an advantage to help you find what you're looking for and the ability to match your timing with your budget.   Prior to finding my real estate career with JB Goodwin, I worked as a reporter for a variety of Central Texas newspapers, so I've witnessed the growing pains and triumphs of each area through city council sessions, commissioner court and school board meetings. I take great pride in my knowledge of Central Texas and appreciate the significant effect every transaction has on the clients I help.

Whether you’re interested in leasing, purchasing or selling your home, I’d love to help you write the next chapter toward reaching your real estate goals.

My Husband and I had a great experience working with Derek and Brenda Young! They were amazing with answering all of our questions and providing all the information we needed. Especially since this was our first time leasing a home in an area we were not familiar with. Their support and communication were extremely helpful and made the experience of moving less stressful. Definitely look forward to working with them in the future!

The Young Team (Brenda and Derek) were both very easy to work with and knowledgeable, and were able to assist/guide me in viewing and getting an apartment in the area within a very short timeframe! It was a smooth and stress-free process :)

Jacob Peters

Brenda and Derek were absolutely fantastic in helping me find my dream home! Coming from out of state, I wasn't too familiar with the area and they were upfront and honest about each area I was interested in. They were very patient and ensured all the features I wanted in a home were included in the search criteria, in addition to what they knew was best for a Texas home. They were darling to be around and very easy to talk to, making this whole process very exciting from beginning to end. I would 100% recommend their guidance through realty, especially if buying a new home makes you nervous!

"Derek and Brenda Young were fantastic as we searched for a rental home. We were relocating from out of state and had a short amount of time for finding a place. Derek was on point and responsive with email and text. Brenda had some great suggestions and localized market knowledge that helped us to get our place. We will definitely use Derek and Brenda when we are ready to buy!"
"Working with the Young Team was a first-class experience. The Ritz-Carlton of realtors. Highly recommended!!"

Caroline Clemmons
"My family and I were relocating to the Austin area and were in need of a home to lease. We were fortunate to work with Brenda and Derek Young. They were extremely helpful during the entire process. They were knowledgeable in all areas, easy to work with, and genuine. I would highly recommend working with Brenda and Derek if you are looking for your next home."
Matthew Quintana
"Working with Brenda was an incredible experience. My fiance and I were moving to a new city with very little background knowledge of the market and the ins and outs of leasing in North Austin. Brenda made it so easy and helped calmed my nerves throughout the entire process. She is incredibly knowledgeable of the area and helped manage our expectations of how applications would be processed and how the decision would be made by the owner. She made a last-minute Sunday morning appointment happen when the house that my fiance and I were so excited about came back on the market. She advocated for us throughout the pre-move in and application process and gave us updates every step of the way. We will definitely be back to work with her when the time comes to buy a home or lease a different property."
Tiffany Clark
"Brenda was a God-send! I recently separated from my spouse... was having no luck finding a new home for me and my daughter because of my credit history. Because of Brenda's caring nature, willingness to hear my story and offer to help me, I am ecstatic to say that we are moving into a BEAUTIFUL townhouse in 2 weeks! Brenda was FANTASTIC! When I was not able to go look at/tour a home, she went and made a video tour and sent it to me. She went above and beyond, for sure. I am so very grateful to her and I HIGHLY recommend her!"
Vicki Aldeen
"My friends and I worked with Brenda and Derek Young to locate student housing to attend university. As first-time renters unfamiliar with the area and leasing process, they really made us feel informed and at ease. They were always available to help us and very knowledgeable. Thanks to them we were able to find housing quickly and confidently even through COVID restrictions! I would highly recommend their services."
Allyson Castillo
"We worked with Brenda and Derek Young and they are an amazing team! We were moving to Austin sight unseen and on top of the current COVID restrictions, we were unable to travel and physically see the places but they were so helpful in providing frequent phone calls and videos of the places we were considering. They even went above and beyond by texting us photos of the city. They stuck to our budget and we’re always so helpful even as we were navigating all the unknowns. Not to mention their friendliness made it so easy and comfortable to work with them!"
