About me


I am committed to being available when you are and being a trusted resource for all phases of the real estate process.

Giving back

​​​​​​​​Brenda Claiborne, REALTOR®

You'll receive the highest degree of integrity and client first mentality from me.  I live by the “Golden Rule” and never stop improving, learning and  growing for myself and my clients.  I strive to educate my clients and guide them through the minefield of the real estate process.  Positive thinking does produce positive results.  I believe in providing my clients with solutions and never excuses.  I also believe that serving or volunteering in our communities is important and by doing so you stay connected to what is happening. 

To be the Realtor that you need on your team throughout the buying or selling process.  To ensure that, I have developed many local connections through serving and volunteering in various community and civic organizations and have a true passion for helping people find their place in our communities throughout Northern Nevada and Western Utah.  


Giving back is one of my core beliefs and I always strive to be a go to resource in my community. I am a past member of the Elko Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, past Treasurer for the Ruby Mountain Balloon Festival, Supporter of Purple Providers, The JAS Foundation, Founder of the Wendover Area Business Connect, Organizer for the West Wendover Light up the Sky Christmas Lights Parade, and many other community events and fundraising opportunities.  

My love for real estate began during the first 20 years of my professional career that I spent climbing through the corporate ranks of one of the largest building maintenance company in the United States, eventually running the St. Louis Branch.  I worked closely with Asset and Property Managers as well as Commercial Real Estate Agents from some of the highest profile corporate offices in the St. Louis region as well as many of the young startup companies.  Several of those individuals mentored me throughout my career and taught me valuable lessons about the real estate industry.    

In 2011 I decided to leave the corporate world behind and started my own company providing business services and consulting.  At this time, I began to educate myself in real estate.  I flipped my first home in the St. Louis area and learned a great deal from the REALTOR® I was working with.  I had a lot of fun with my first flip and was excited to start the next one, when my life took a turn West.  

In 2012 I followed my husband, who had a great job opportunity, to Elko, NV.  We have lived in the Northeastern Nevada area for the last 7 years.  We moved to the Elko area during a time when a major housing crisis was occurring.  There were no places to rent and the housing market was inflated.  We chose to live in a large RV for a few years as the housing market improved.  It was a stressful time for us, but we wouldn't change a thing because we learned so much through the process.     

 We have enjoyed exploring and traveling around the region and taking in the spectacular beauty of this part of the US. We've been in West Wendover, NV since November of 2016, serving clients as a licensed Nevada and Utah Real Estate Agent.

 If you are relocating to the area, I have firsthand experience in relocating to the area, and I am willing to be your experienced guide to help you and provide valuable insights into moving to this region.  If you are looking into taking that big leap from renting to owning your own home I can help you with this as well.  From the Salt Flats through Cowboy Country, I am here to serve you.
