Vanessa knows the real estate market, has outstanding people skills, worked hard to find us the right retirement house in a market with few single story homes, advised us on a winning strategy to secure the purchase quickly during the Christmas Holiday season, negotiated effectively with a difficult seller, kept us up-to-date in near real time, handled paperwork electronically while we slowly traveled cross country, and was just a delight to work with. A local daughter went with agent Vanessa to view the home while we were still in California. We bought the house sight unseen. Our trust in Vanessa's professionalism, experience and judgment paid off handsomely for us. Almost a year into owning this home, we have learned to value her connections to contractors and craftsmen. Most important was her recommendation for a pre-sale home inspector. He was thorough and detailed so we had a good idea of the upgrades that would be needed. For example, the HVAC was overdue for replacement. There are so many things that Vanessa does exceptionally...... She is the perfect balance of assertive and polite - a very rare combination. She charged ahead full speed to push for things that were in our best interest, but never to the point of being rude to anyone. Further, what she doesn't know, she will find out. For example, I wanted a house that was well outside any flood plain and away from the coming 540 road construction. She promptly emailed me maps that contained all the info I needed. She assisted both of our daughters in finding homes. They recommended her to us. I recommend her to you without reservation. And we still call her for referrals and advice on maintaining our beautiful home. That level of service AFTER the sale is something we truly treasure. We feel fortunate to have found her. She's is an amazing lady!
