We seriously don’t know where we’d be without Vanessa. Selling our house with her as our agent never ever felt like a business transaction, it felt like we were family. She is amazingly competent and well-versed in her knowledge of historic homes. She is cool and calm, an amazing advocate, a great communicator, and she gets business done. Her selling tips were on point, and she went above and beyond the average REALTOR with her touches of TLC and support. We truly wish we could’ve taken her with us on our move to another state, because there isn’t anyone we trust more with such an important decision in our lives. She’s a gem. - GARCIA FAMILY—
Vanessa was just the best. She found our family the perfect home in terms of price, neighborhood, and style without even meeting us. Even though we purchased the house sight unseen, we knew we could absolutely trust her. She is warm, incredibly knowledgeable, and tough as nails. Trust us when we say that she is absolutely the person you want by your side during the emotional rollercoaster that is buying or selling a home. - THE AHEARNS—
Vanessa is incredible! We have used her to help us buy a home and are now using her to sell our home. On both accounts, she is absolutely the best! Vanessa has a keen eye for finding a house with good bones and good energy. When we were buying a home and went to go look at some showings, a lot of them were staged beautifully, but Vanessa would point out things to us that we would have never seen before that would have been costly to fix once we bought the house. So we didn’t need to waste the time with an inspector. And other houses that might not be the most beautiful she would point out why that house has great bones and with a little work would b...—
I had a great experience working with Vanessa to purchase a home in October/November of 2021. From the start and throughout the whole time she has displayed the utmost professionalism and expertise in her field. As a first-time home buyer, I had very little experience with real estate, but that was no issue for Vanessa. We met several times over the phone to discuss expectations, the overall home-buying process, and her experience, and expertise and found that it would be advantageous to work together. Vanessa was accommodating to my schedule and attentive to pointing out details during our walkthroughs. Her historical property knowledge very much p...—
Vanessa knows everything about buying a home and everything about homes as well. She is an excellent listener, finds you what you want, tells you the truth, and never feels "pushy." Previous real estate agents didn't get me, didn't show me anything I liked, and treated me like it was my fault for my tastes. But buying a home is a momentous deal and Vanessa understands that. Working with Vanessa was an easy delight from the first phone call until the last form was signed. After we bought our home and everything was signed and finished, Vanessa maintained her client relationships. We knew we could call her to ask for advice about our new home and she ...—
Our experiences include Two amazing transactions that may not have come off without Vanessa's skill and diligence (including a tenant-occupied situation); timely advice on housing regulation changes along with solid documentation of the details; an outstanding off-the-cuff overview of 1031 exchanges; a timely set of market valuations to meet a legal deadline, with clearly-indicated ranges of uncertainty; beautiful staging for a sale; strong support from an office team; and much more. A pleasure to work with, and great communications and follow-up. I can see why we got such a strong recommendation from a savvy neighbor who had sold her home through V...—
