Brett Stern

Brett is a graduate of Sycamore High School and Indiana University and holds two Masters’ degrees from Brandeis University. After enjoying a career in the nonprofit sector, Brett took the leap into real estate in 2011. In 2013, she joined Keller Williams Advisors – a brokerage
she chose for its innovation, opportunities for further education, and high standards of ethics.

Brett has been named to the Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors Circle of Excellence every year since 2013, and the Ohio Association of Realtors President’s Club since 2014. As such, she is proud to be a leader and a top performer in the Cincinnati real estate market.

Brett feels passionately about our city and credits her love of Cincinnati as the impetus for her real estate career. Brett loves that her clients come to her for recommendations years after closing.

Brett’s approach to real estate is built on personal touches, win-win deals, and positive results. Most importantly, Brett listens, and that means she will find solutions that are tailored to you.

After an initial needs assessment, our buyers can rely on Ken to schedule their showings expeditiously and accompany them as they tour the homes they wish to see. Ken and Brett work closely as a team and remain in close communication throughout showings so that, when you find “the one”, Brett can prepare your offer and guide you through to the closing table.
