Brenda McKinley exudes integrity, hard work, energy and enthusiasm in each and every real estate transaction. While her children were young, Brenda honed her sales and customer service skills by running a successful online and home party business while mentoring women in the community to run their own successful at-home businesses. Brenda later ventured into teaching, subbing for a year, followed by teaching full-day to 21 eager Kindergarten students.
After personally experiencing an unpleasant real estate transaction, Brenda decided, “I can do that WAY better!” and dove into studying for her real estate license with gusto and determination.
Brenda and her family relocated to the Spokane Valley from Alaska. She continues her love for lake life and adventure along with her husband, Rick. Brenda and Rick recently celebrated their 27th wedding anniversary.

They have 2 boys, both grown. The oldest, Chander, is married and lives in Alaska. The youngest, Braden, lives in Spokane and is getting married fall of 2023.
Brenda’s strong Christian faith guides her daily in her family life, friendships and business relationships. Joining the Windermere team has enabled Brenda to work for a company that shares similar values, with a heart for people and community being at the core. A portion of every Windermere transaction is donated to the Windermere Foundation, which helps thousands of families during their time of need.
