I have purchased 8 homes during my career and Pamela is clearly the best realtor I worked with! On my last home she found out that the sellers did not have a new home to move into. By offering a lease option of five months, they accepted our offer despite the fact that we didn't have the highest offer!
- Will F.
Pamela helped us become first time home owners, and then again when our family needs changed and we needed to explore moving again. Both times, Pamela was instrumental in not only helping us find exactly what we wanted, but then in setting our offer and family apart from the pack. Although there were many things that I loved about working with Pamela, one thing worth mentioning is how well she knows the process of buying and selling. Every time we had a question, or concern, she knew how to explain to us, and provide guidance in a way that not only put us at ease, but helped us understand the situation. In speaking to her talent in selling our house, we had nearly 150 people attend our first open house, and had 10+ offers received in the first week on the market (many over asking price). I attribute a significant amount of the ease in selling our house to Pamela's expertise. I highly recommend considering her for your realtor services!

We were referred to Pamela by a few friends after we decided to make Folsom our home. My husband and I had a specific idea of the kind of home we wanted and in a certain area of town. Pamela knew the Folsom area well and was diligent and patient in helping us find just the right home. She frequently stated 'I love my house here and I want to help you find a house you are going to be excited about coming home to.' Pamela sent us listings as soon as houses were available and went on the walk throughs with us. She shared her experience and attention to details- she was frank when she saw that something might need extra work (I so much appreciated this as we were looking at older homes). Pamela helped us find a finance person and went above and beyond to communicate between him and us when we needed some help to clarify. She was also calm and compassionate when the process got stressful for us- she was able to help us also be calm because we knew we were in good hands with her. Pamela had a professional demeanor and was able to easily establish a good rapport with our seller's realtor. Once our home was purchased, Pamela introduced us to fair priced professionals that helped us do some upgrades before we moved in. Overall, it was great working with Pamela. I highly recommend her and would definitely work with her again.

Pamela was our realtor when we sold our house. She was amazing! She had a great stager come in and did an amazing job. Had names of contractors and/or handyman to do things needed around the house. And our house sold in one day!! She also helped us buying our next home here in Folsom. If you need a realtor I highly recommend Pamela.
- Jack W.
There is not a better agent in our area. Helped us find and purchase our Folsom home, super listener, tactful negotiator feels like extended family! 50 STARS?? We plan to have her on our next purchase.
- Katie M.
Pamela is amazing! After we found our home, the closing was filled with ups and downs. Pamela’s advice and expertise greatly helped our anxieties during this time. She is knowledgeable and is able to help clients identify qualities they would like to have in a home/neighborhood. Above all, Pamela has genuine love for people. This is evident as she strives to humbly serve her clients and prepare them for their new season of life. There is no one better!!
- Liz J.
So helpful and knowledgeable of real estate. She made sure that we were informed on every decision and helped us buy the home of our dreams! She was also very helpful listing our house to sell and made the process go very smooth.

With much thoughtfulness, I asked Pamela Brooks to be my Real Estate Agent, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with my decision. It had been years since owning a house and Pamela was literally taking me through each step honestly, professionally and at a pace that was comfortable for me. She knows the area, the best value and the knowledge and history of many of the homes we looked at. Important to me, by getting to know my likes and dislikes, she knew what houses to show me. This says it all: I did not find this out until after purchasing my home. One of my neighbors let me know that Pamela sparked up conversation with several neighbors, getting an idea if it was a right fit for me. I did not hear of this until two years later and to my chagrin, I am pleasantly enjoying my home and neighborhood. It has been my pleasant experiences that Pamela Brooks is one of the most outstanding Realtor’s in the area. I would highly recommend Pamela for the job of realtor to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.
- Richard S.
I have used a few relators in past and she is by far the best I have experienced She went out of her way when having open house to personally vacuum house and rake leaves on front yard She made the experience of selling house as pleasant as possible I have referred her to friends.
- Jeanine L.
Pamela helped us with our first home. We knew nothing about the process. She was right on top of things and so easy to work with and the best at what she does. She has also become a friend and client of mine so I’ve gotten to know her and she is an incredible woman. You can’t go wrong with her. She’s a true professional.
- Hannah A.
Pamela helped us buy and sell our first home. She made the experience pleasant and exciting on both sides, buying and selling. Pamela was quick to answer our questions and direct us as needed throughout the entire process. Her professionalism and expertise put us at ease and we hope to be able to work with her again in the future. Pamela is knowledgeable, personable and demonstrates that she wants what is best for her clients. We can’t recommend her enough!
- Guy G.
Pamela and her son delivered expert advice and guidance with friendly professional competence. We simply did what she suggested and my house sold for the asking price to the first person who viewed it.
- Cameron C.
We have bought two homes through Pamela and sold one. She came highly recommended from a close friend and we could not have had a better agent. She worked magic on both purchases and on the sale; making the entire experience fast and as easy as it could be even with the complications of buying and selling during a pandemic. She went above and beyond when we bought our first home and again when buying our dream home. We landed our full wish list on our purchase and she managed to negotiate what seemed like an impossible deal where everyone won. I would not hesitate to recommend her to my family for buying or selling a home. Everyone that we worked with all along the way assured us she was the best and she proved it all three times.
- Emily C
I could not be more thrilled with how amazingly well our house selling/buying process has gone, and we have Pamela to thank for that! She helped my husband buy his first home 9 years ago (right before we met), and he was eager to reach out to her when we decided it was time to find our “forever home.” We were ready to move full steam ahead from the moment we called Pamela, and she never dropped a beat. During a challenging time (COVID-19 shutdown), she showed us every house we wanted to see and worked around our crazy schedule seemingly with ease. We toured our absolute dream home almost as soon as it went on the market, and our offer was accepted the next day. That was the moment I told Pamela that I felt like she was my fairy godmother – she truly helped make our dream come true! She also worked her magic with our current house sale. She helped guide us through every step, and within about 2 weeks of first contacting her, our house was on the market. Thanks to her expertise, we had an offer within hours of listing, and several offers after 2 days filled with showings (again, all during COVID-19 with so many added precautionary steps to handle). With closing dates 6 weeks apart, Pamela was even able to negotiate a way to allow us to stay in our current house until we are able to move into our dream home. The entire process has been incredibly fast, smooth, exciting, and (somehow) relatively stress free! Pamela’s calm nature is truly a priceless attribute for those in her field; she is able to put her clients at ease as they’re making huge life decisions, all while working tirelessly behind the scenes to make it happen. Though we know Pamela has many clients to juggle, we’ve felt as though we have been her only priority. She has been quick to answer all of our many questions by text, phone, email, or in person at all hours of the day or night, and we truly appreciate what she has done for us. If you want a true dream home selling/buying experience, look no further – call Pamela Brooks!
My husband and I could not have been happier with our choice for a real estate agent. Pamela has taken the tedious process of buying a home and made it enjoyable and worry free. I have never met a more organized and accommodating real estate agent as Pamela. She is as good as it gets. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an amazing home buying experience.
- Heather Z
I just bought my first home with Pamela and I could not be more pleased with how smoothly everything went because of her. I expected the process be stressful but Pamela coordinated everything and made it very easy. She answered all of our questions promptly and patiently and gave us a lot of information we didn't even know we needed. She made sure we were completely comfortable with everything we did. It is obvious that she really knows what she's doing and does it with integrity. I highly recommend working with her.
- Ashley H
I am honored to be the first to review Pamela here on Yelp! I have several friends who have purchased homes with the help of Pamela, and I had heard wonderful things about her. When it came time for ME to purchase a home, of course Pamela was my first choice. I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience... all thanks to her! She made the home buying process so easy for this first time home buyer... on a SHORT SALE, none-the-less. Awesome, awesome, awesome! Would highly recommend her to all my friends and family! :)
- Jessie R
Pamela helped my fiancé and I purchase our first home, and she was simply amazing! Her knowledge about the neighborhoods, the home-buying process, and houses in general was very impressive. She answered any question I had for her no matter what it was about, and I had a lot of them! More importantly, she was loyal and caring. We looked for homes for a very long time, and she stuck with us the entire time. When we finally had an offer accepted and our time in escrow turned out to be a lot more complicated than expected, she went above and beyond to protect us as new home buyers! I would highly recommend Pamela to anyone looking for a real estate agent, whether you're buying it selling.
Always puts the client first and knows the city of Folsom better than anyone I know!! She found our home from search to escrow in under 20 days!!! Simply brilliant!
- Mike B
Pamela and I have talked real-estate several times but the timing was never quite right to buy or sell until recently. I always knew that Pamela would be an excellent realtor and would ensure all the "T"s were crossed and "I"s dotted, (something very important to me and should be to anyone buying or selling something as important as a home), but what I didn't expect was how wonderfully easy it would be to work with Pamela nor how amazingly supportive she would be. Within a very short amount of time, Pamela helped me sell a home, buy a home, and pulled off the seemingly impossible task of helping me to do so in such a way that'd I'd only have to move once. She left no detail to chance, ensured every step of the way was solid, and always kept everyone involved up to date with efficient communications.
Pamela's website is dreamsyoulivein.com and as far as I'm concerned, the *dream* in "dreamsyoulivein" refers as much to working with her as it does to my new home.

We bought our first home from Pamela in 2013, and as first time home buyers, my wife and I couldn't have been more nervous. Pamela did such a good job at holding our hands and guiding us through what should have, and what could have been an incredibly stressful time. We moved to Folsom from over 2 hours away, and it was never an issue to schedule time with Pamela to see properties, handle paperwork, or just ask questions that were coming to us at all hours of the day/night. We are pondering a move again (if my wife gets her way, then baby number 4 will require some additional square footage), and we don't have any doubts on who our realtor will be when the time comes to find our forever home. I strongly recommend Pamela, as she made us feel at ease through the entire process of buying our home.
- Susan M
Pamela worked with my husband and I on the purchase of a home, sale of a home and sale of a lot. Her professionalism, knowledge and years of experience were invaluable. We were very picky when looking for a new home but Pamela was patient and showed us everything that came on the market. She was very sensitive to the urgency of the current market and made sure we were first in line to see new properties. There was absolutely no pressure to "settle" and in fact she actually pointed out some issues that we may have missed. When we finally found our home (after two years of searching) Pamela wrote a letter on our behalf which sealed the deal in a very competitive market. Likewise, Pamela went above and beyond in marketing our home for sale, getting a roof repair person in on a Sunday during an epic rain storm and effortlessly dealing with all the complications that come with real estate transactions. We have especially appreciated that Pamela has been available to us for questions and advice long after the transactions were complete. If you're looking for an ethical, knowledgeable and experienced realtor, Pamela is your gal.
- Jonathan J
It doesn't get better than Pamela. She found our home in Folsom and she is the #1 realtor in the Sacramento area. Do yourself a favor and contact her!
- Christina Y
I've had the pleasure to work with Pamela to purchase and sell my 5th home in 2017. I should be a pro at this by now. Yet I continue to learn something new with each transaction. This was no exception. Pamela went above and beyond to help us through our unusual and particularly challenging situation. Her knowledge, professionalism, understanding and flexibility were impeccable. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Pamela for your home buying/purchase needs.
- Melaku T
Pamela is a really great real-estate professional to work with. She has helped us buy two homes over the years. She helped me buy my first home back in 2003. She guided me with each and every step, which was great for a first time home buyer, as I was nervous and had a lot of questions about everything. And again in 2017 she helped my wife and myself buy our family home. She looked at details we never even thought about and advised us with all the questions we had. She brought contractors and other professionals when we needed advice on remodeling work and fixes in the new home we were buying. She was willing to meet us and show us homes on our schedule (which included weekends and odd hours). If/when we plan another real-estate transaction, we will definitely go with Pamela. Honestly, I don't think there is anyone better out there.

My wife and I were very new to the area (less than a year) and California. We decided to purchase a home using the GI Bill. For those of you who know how the GI Bill works there are expectations of the seller that are not always greeted with enthusiasm.
We contacted Pamela and shared how we would be financing as well as what we were looking for. Being empty nesters we were not interested in large homes or those with a lot of steps.
Pamela helped us find our home very quickly, provided excellent guidance and advice to these California novices. Long story short...21 days after the offer was accepted we closed on our wonderful home that is the perfect size for the two of us.
We highly recommend Pamela. As all the other reviews have stated, she is reliable, knowledgeable, professional and truly caring about your home needs and desires.
- Leslie E
I've watched firsthand the interaction Pamela has with her clients due to assisting her with staging some of her listings. Her clients respect her expertise and the dedication she shows the second she walks in the door.
Pamela is compassionate and and understands that selling your home at times is difficult due to a multitude of reasons.
Pamela is a perfectionist and leaves no stone unturned. She'll roll up her sleeves and get her hands dirty (literally) in preparing your home to go on the market. That's exactly what I've witnessed her do many times with the homes I've help her stage as well as my own mother's home after she passed. While staying focused and professional Pamela talked my family off of the cliff more than once during a challenging time.
I've worked with many realtors, I've never experienced one like Pamela Brooks. She's the real deal!!
Since being referred to Pamela Brooks by a couple friends, she has helped me through two property transactions. The first was to sell my house back in 2013. She did a fantastic job! She walked me through the whole process, going through exactly how to stage and how to have the house ready. In less than a week, we had many offers on the house and sold for nearly $20K over the asking price.
Recently, I used Pamela and her son, Colton, to purchase my house. Even though they specialize in the Folsom market, they put in extra effort to help me find the perfect home in Lincoln, CA. Pamela was honest through the whole process and helped really sift through what mattered in a home. My situation was not ideal to buyers, but Pamela was able to negotiate a deal that worked perfect and my kids and I now have a beautiful home that we love!
Pamela is one of the kindest, most caring people I know, she has a heart to help others. She knows the market, will be honest with you on the good and the bad, and she will work to get the best deal for you. She will always be my first choice in real estate! Thank you, Pamela and Colton!

Pamela is a gifted realtor with a wealth of experience. She helped us purchase our first home in 2010 with patience and professionalism. She was so great that we worked with her to purchase our second one a few years later. She was extremely helpful as we prepared our first home to sell, and her input helped us present our home in optimal condition. In fact, it sold for above asking price the day it went onto the market.
Pamela is knowledgeable, well-connected, and has an incredible eye for detail. What my husband and I appreciated most was her honesty and integrity- she talked us OUT of buying homes that would not have been a good fit, which ultimately allowed us to land the perfect home for our family. She listened to us and worked diligently to meet our desires. Though she is a highly sought-after realtor, we always felt like we were a high priority. Her professional accolades and client testimonials paint an accurate picture - she's the best!
– Chris S
Pamela is the epitome of a professional real estate agent. She genuinely cares about her clients and takes care of them like family. Her advice is always tailored to each individual person or family, and never about what's best for her, which is why she is one of the most respected agents anywhere. Once you work with Pamela, you won't want to work with anybody else.
– Tom and Cathy Clarke
We are so happy that we chose Pamela as our Realtor! She was able to get our house sold, and help us buy our dream house in a very difficult market. She, and her assistant Victoria, were always prompt and professional. They always kept us informed, answered our questions well, and returned our calls and emails in record time. Everyone Pamela recommended to us for home improvements were fantastic. Pamela even found us a short term rental so our family wouldn’t be out in the cold between houses. We highly recommend Pamela to anyone!”
