I rented with these jerks for 27 months, when I claled about non functioning outlets they asked me if I NEEDED it fixed cause they didn't want to if they didn't have to. I left the place in better condition than when I found it and they charged me 325 for just cleaning. Than they charged me 118 for Painting because it costs them 475 every three years to paint the home which dived by 36 months is $13 and change. So they multiplied the 13 by 9 because I didn't live there for 9 more months. Yeah that's right they charged me for not living there!!!! 8 years of renting properties all over the country and they are by far the worst. I actually had to drive an hour to pay them $35 more! Somehow they kept all 650 of my deposit and I had to pay them more.
The office staff is very ruid
The rental property manager is very helpful and respectful.
Michele McDaniel was a fantastic help through the whole process of buying our new home in Sumter. Since we live in the northeast, she was always available via email with any questions we had. When we were in Sumter looking at homes she took extra time to suggest good places to eat as well as show us the town
I would highly recommend Jo Anne Littleton from Berkshire Hathaway as a realtor to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. Jo Anne was very friendly and professional and helped us sell our home quickly at a slow time of the year. She was very proactive and worked hard to get our home as many showings as possible. She held several open houses and kept in constant contact with us and offered several ideas to help us sell our house fast. We couldn't be more pleased with our experience with Jo Anne Littleton!
Berkshire Hathaway, Sumter, SC, (John M. Brabham Real Estate) is a very dishonest company. Due to the demanding schedule of my job, I didn't have time to move again or the financial means for other changes. I was not familiar with the SC tenant laws at the time. In my opinion, the law does not protect you . When I moved in, the master tub was black, and it took months of Clorox to return it to its proper color. The microwave had butter in it. Berkshire really needs to refund my money in good conscience and faith. But, like most companies, they are greedy for money and dishonest. The grounds were unkept. I had to beg them to cut the knee high grass, and they refused to trim the bushes. The garage was filthy. Broken glass was on the ground. Management (Sherry) never responded to my emails nor attempted to refund my money. They also charged me for bogus gas charges. This takes it over the top. When I moved out, I was charged for not mopping the floor, removing scum from the bathroom, and not cleaning the oven. All of this is not true. I have documentation to prove it. I have pictures, videos, and witnesses that I swept, mopped, and scrubbed the bathrooms. This residence also had termites. Really? I have always been a meticulous housekeeper. I also had to beg for them to fix the crack under the door that was letting spiders in. How can Berkshire Hathaway give me a filthy home to rent and have the audacity to charge me for allegedly not cleaning it. They also charged me for trimming the bushes. Put these folks out of business. (Neighborhood off Patriot Parkway-Senate Lane) Berkshire make this right and refund my $400.
Jo Anne Littleton did an outstanding job as our realtor, and I highly recommend her to sell your home. We live out of state and decided to sell our rental home in Sumter, SC. Due to her attention to detail and aggressive marketing, Jo Anne was able to get an offer on the home within one week of listing it. Prior to closing she coordinated all required repairs, house-cleaning and sent us all necessary documents early. Jo Anne kept us informed throughout the entire process to ensure a successful closing. We couldn't be more pleased with the service she provided.
Denise Weeks did a fantastic job listing and selling our house. Open, honest, extremely professional and knowledgeable, absolutely recommend!
Avoid doing any business with John M. Brabham Real Estate. I had them managing a rental property of mine, they were not only rude and unprofessional to me but my tenants as well. They acted as though they were doing me a favor when I asked them to do anything. They were very slow and sometimes completely unresponsive in taking care of tenant complaints/issues and were responsible for unhappy tenants terminating leases early and sometimes skipping out on paying rent leaving my house in shambles. They are slow to answer emails, sometimes taking 3 or 4 days to respond and they do not keep you informed of property issues. I elevated concerns to senior management without ever receiving responses. Agnes Edwards is only there to collect a pay check and and could care less about you as a property owner or renter. She does as little as possible to satisfy the customers. When I requested property maintenance records she told me to look at my monthly billing statements (which only lists costs for maintenance/repairs and does not indicate actual repair). I was appalled at such a response, I pay 10 percent commission to manage my property and I am told (via email) to look at my monthly statement, they have no idea how a customer should be treated. I finally fired them and have found another company that has done a remarkable managing my property. Bottom line: Stay clear of Prudential John M. Brabham Real Estate. They do not have your best interest in mind--home owner or tenant
Do not rent from these people. First of all, they will look for anything possible to keep your deposit. They will hold your deposit for 30 days after your lease is over and within those days if they find something you get charged. In my case they didn't do a joint inspection and I was charged 229 for the garage remote which I left at the kitchen and the upstairs room AC remote which I also left under the AC unit. These charges were made weeks later after they lost the keys. I was also charged the weekend rent because they couldn't receive the keys on weekends. 21 years in the military renting all over US and first time I write a review on a company I rented from. I will never do business again with Berkshire Hathaway or affiliated companies.
Do not rent from these people. They will steal your entire security deposit. Despite leaving the house in pristine condition. They overprice the simplest things. They charged me $70 to make another house key.
Jo Anne Littleton of Berkshire Hathaway was unbelievable, we were looking for a home in the Sumter area from out of town, not only did she make it easy to find one, but went out of her way to be available and there when we needed her to be. From seeing the home, to the closing, her professional service was second to none. Just an outstanding experience.
Katherine Rauch agent works hard and is on your side.
The manager (Sherry) at this location is great. I had an issue with a couple of appliances in my apartment and she helped me get the matter resolved.. She stayed in touch and kept me updated with what was going until the matter was resolved.
Professional, good communication, overall very nice and organized office
Excellent service and representation by Jo Anne Littleton! She is the type of Realtor that will exceed all of your expectations; her attention to the details is simply impeccable. Cleary Berkshire Hathaway starting with the Broker-Owner - Mr. John Brabham - is a top-of-the line real estate company that employs some of the best Realtors; we cannot say enough about the fantastic job Jo Anne did in representing us in our home purchase. If purchasing real estate in the Sumter area, I assure you that selecting Jo Anne as your Realtor will prove to be one of the best decisions that you could make. She simply delivers.....every day!!
Yes I would go back,
When we moved away from South Carolina, we listed our house for sale with an agent at another local company. After 7 months and some not-so-great experiences we had to put it up for rent. After that time was up we decided to switch companies and list our house with Jo Anne Littleton. I was hesitant to list the house again, but working with Jo Anne was SO much different than our previous experience with another realtor/company. She is so friendly and made me feel at ease about the whole process. She truly went above and beyond for us. We got an offer on our house in 13 DAYS!!! If you're looking for a realtor who is friendly, hardworking, and professional, choose Jo Anne. You won't regret it.
Jo Anne Littleton is one of the most professional people I've ever worked with. She helped us buy & sell our Sumter home. If I was moving back to Sumter I would absolutely call Jo Anne. She understands the dynamic nature of a military move and she was uber flexible. She always kept us well informed. Thanks for the great service!
We cant thank Laurie Townes enough for her help in selling our home. We currently live out of state and she made the whole process so easy for us. She was on top of everything from day one. We were highly impressed with the entire experience. I would highly recommend her and the team at John Bradham Bershire.
Katharine Rauch is wonderful! As a first-time home buyer I was very nervous about the whole process of buying a house, but Katharine looked out for me time and time again, answering every question patiently and working tirelessly to make sure I found the home of my dreams. She repeatedly gave me great advice without being at all pushy. Though I know she was busy, she gave her time generously and made me feel like a priority. She listened closely to my concerns and did a great job of matching possible houses with my wish list. I am recommending Katharine to everyone I know. She is a wonderful person and an outstanding professional. I couldn't ask for a better experience than I had with Katharine and Berkshire Hathaway. Update: Four years ago, Katherine helped me to buy my house, and this time she helped me to sell it. She was just as wonderful as I remembered, giving me excellent advice on staging my home, and it ultimately sold at a great price and sooner than I had thought. She constantly looked out for my interests. I absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Reported three maintenance issues and within only TWO days, everything was fixed! My family and I are very thankful for the kind and helpful staff. Looking forward to continue renting from Berkshire in the future.
Once I decided to buy in the area, after renting for 5 years, I began my search online using Zillow. Michele McDaniels was the first agent that contacted me a day after I entered my information. From the moment we spoke, the wheels started turning, and it was all down hill from there. Michele made the process stress free by giving of her time, resources and contacts. We cruised to closing effortlessly. Michele definitely had my best interest at hand. She kept me well informed and updated on the process and all actions from all parties. I highly recommend Michele McDaniels for any property needs.
I had a wonderful experience selling my home and purchasing my next with the expertise of Linda Cizek. From staging our home to closing on the next, her knowledge of the market is fantastic! I would highly recommend Linda, she was great to work with!
I would definitely recommend Berkshire Hathaway to others. My realtor, Linda Cizek, went above and beyond to help me sell my home. She was very helpful, gave good advice, and always had time for me. As I was a first-time seller, Ms. Linda kindly and professionally guided me through the process, from start to finish. As a broker, Berkshire Hathaway was fair, professional, and flexible--a pleasure to work with.
Thorough and conscientious group! I could not say enough kind things about this agency or my realtor, JoAnne Littleton! So grateful that she was able to find the perfect home for me!!
We were completely satisfied with Linda Cizek of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services John M. Brabham Real Estate! Her knowledge of selling/buying homes is top-notch. She gave us a list of things to do in order to have our home ready for the market; we complied with them all and our house was toured by four people and on contract within a week! They are a military friendly company and Linda treated us with the greatest respect. It was a hassle free deal for sure and we recommend her to anyone.
I just have to say, Jo Anne Littleton was a wonderful agent to work with during the sale of my father's house. It was a difficult time for me, but Jo Anne was always available and was sensitive to my feelings. She helped with recommendations for how to prepare the house for sale, and when we needed to make a few minor repairs, she provided suggestions about repairmen since I had no idea who to contact. She stayed in touch with me on a regular basis so I knew exactly what was going on with the listing, showings and eventually a contract. I was so pleased with how everything was handled and would highly recommend Brabham Real Estate and Jo Anne Littleton specifically if you are listing or buying! She was a pleasure to work with.
The definition of “slum lords”. Rented an old falling apart apartment for three years, I could write a book. Crack in front door from day 1 we were told would NOT be fixed. Hot water never worked to our washing machine. AC unit constantly messed up need maintenance to get it to work and it would also drip and leak into hallway, exorbitant electric bills because of this old tired unit. Two lights stopped working (electrical issue not bulbs) and were never repaired. Dishwasher rattled and leaked on floor. Burn marks and stains existingon carpet when we moved in. Rent check got “lost” one month they never cashed it then when they called me asking about my payment they suddenly “found” it. And last but not least 4 weeks from our move out date upstairs shower/tub combo sprung a leak that poured water into our kitchen. Water came through the ceiling, into the light fixture, from the inside of my kitchen cabinets, all over the floor and into the stove. Called for maintenance request ASAP around 2pm. By 5pm no one showed up so I called again, after hour answering service seemed concerned and said they would call the plumber. Hilll pluming calls me, saying so sorry we never got a maintenance call for you but someone can come now. The plumber comes, says it’s gonna be a huge expensive repair, and he will have to talk to the rental office and they will talk to the homeowner and let us know what they are going to do. The next day, I get a call that Susan Osteen (from the Berkshire sales side) is coming to list our apartment for sale. No offer to repair or even clean up the mess. We had one non working bathroom for the last month we lived there and were offered nothing for our inconvenience. Instead they billed me $270 for carpet repair ... their employee told my husband carpet would be replaced if over 3 years, yet Sherry says that’s false information paint is 3 years and carpet is 10 years. Billed me $180 for cleaning and all she can read off the list to be cleaned was dusting baseboards and wiping down trim... she also tried to tell me we “declined” repair of the tub/shower because we were moving ... it was never offered or discussed with us!!! The homeowner became eager to sell this junk of a property and the realtor was even shocked what condition the place was in, when Susan showed up to look at our apertment no one from rental department even told her about the leak!!!! no one here is informed of what is going on and things don’t get taken care of in a timely manner or even at all. So many clerical errors and miscommunications, WOW! Poor excuse for property management. Unless you like throwing money away and playing phone tag don’t ever rent one of their properties. I would do anything to avoid dealing with them again !!!!!
Michele was always available, caring, and professional. She anticipated our needs and made selling our home an enjoyable experience. We recommend Michele and her office to all our friends In the Sumter area.
