SHREWSBURY – Papillon is the French word for a butterfly. It’s also the name of Brenda Brown’s real estate firm, Papillon Realty.

“I treat every home as if it were my own,” she said.

Brown has been in business for 35 years, working with numerous firms. 

After she left her most recent partnership, Brown started Papillon Realty in 2020. She described Papillon Realty, which is located in Shrewsbury’s Town Center, as a boutique firm.

Brown specializes in listing homes. She said she offers high-quality services and low commission rates, obtains high sale prices and sells homes fast for her clients.

In fact, her tagline is that it will be “A Comfortable Experience To Remember.”

According to the National Association of Realtors, 68% of sellers found their agent through a referral from a friend, neighbor or relative or used an agent they previously used to buy or sell a home. Further, 82% of recent sellers contacted only one agent before they found the right agent.

“I depend on referrals,” Brown said. “One of the great joys of working in real estate is getting to meet and work with wonderful people.”

As Brown put it, that means sellers aren’t shopping for an agent.

The real estate market has been challenging because of sellers receiving multiple offers, low housing supply, high demand and low interest rates, she said.

“But now we’ve peaked and things are changing. We’re starting to see drops in the market and it’s the perfect time to buy or sell a home,” Brown said.

She urged anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a home this fall to contact her. People can also request a free subscription to her magazine “Home Sweet Home.”
