Driven by my commitment to YOU


As a John L. Scott broker, my mission is transactional excellence and client satisfaction. That means I work tirelessly to make your home buying or selling process as efficient, stress-free and lucrative for you as possible.

Meet Brenda

Brenda Kinder works out of John L. Scott’s Columbia Gorge office, and has been licensed in Washington and Oregon since 2004. Before working in the real estate industry, she owned a beauty salon, but was drawn to becoming a broker because of her fascination with homes and the process that goes into creating them. She is an expert in single family residential properties, but has also done some commercial and farm sales.

Brenda’s approach to offering the best possible service to clients is using all of the tools at her disposal to help clients become informed consumers. She believes that whether working with a buyer or seller, the most important thing she can offer clients is the information they need to make an informed decision. She believes her clients know what they are looking for and enjoys sharing her expertise to help them get where they want to go in life.

Helping her clients attain success is one of Brenda’s top priorities. A favorite saying that guides her approach is that “cooler heads prevail,” in business. She takes this saying to heart in each transaction, putting her ego aside to get her clients what they need. Brenda views competing brokers as peers and is collaborative in her approach to getting things done. As a result of this approach, she is well-respected by other brokers and has earned many repeat clients and referrals.

As one of Jehovah's Witnesses, Brenda is involved in her local church’s Bible education work. She also enjoys spending time with her grandchildren, two chickens and two dogs. Other interests of Brenda’s include gardening and quilting, and she is inspired on a daily basis by her family.

“Brenda was an absolute joy to work with. This was my first experience buying a home, Brenda was informative and helpful through the entire experience. We were on a time crunch, having to be out of our rental, Brenda helped in making sure everything went smoothly. In less than a week we will be in our dream home.”

“Brenda Kinder did a great job selling this house in a timely manner meeting all the tight deadlines that we had, and she represented us with a friendly and professional service.”
– Jodi Medley

“Brenda was there our whole three-year adventure, she was very patient with our nitpicking, and never pushed a sale. She not only gave us her personal and professional advice, but also was prompt with our view requests or questions. The best thing about her was she made me feel like family, and not just a sale. She really did want me to love what I was buying. Another impressive thing was her modern use of technology, texting, email, and DocuSign made everything so much easier. One more thing when things got hard and we had no idea what to do she knew exactly what to do and helped us out lot with her experience and knowledge! We love her and will use Brenda again!”
