    • Our experience selling our home with Vanessa was excellent. She guided us through the entire process, using her insight into the local Princeton market to give us advice sound advice on pricing, time to list, and recommendation some contractors to do work post-inspection. We really appreciated the prompt response to any and all of our questions and concerns throughout the whole process. She stayed in close touch with us from start to finish, which made the whole selling experience a lot easier.

    • I've had two real estate transactions with Vanessa and she proved to be worth her weight in gold. She is extremely knowledgeable about the local markets. Her service is exceptional responding to emails and texts throughout the day and night. When it comes to negotiations, she knows where to push and where not to. All around I would highly recommend Vanessa, she's a real pleasure to work with.

    • We used Vanessa to sell our condo and buy our "forever" home and we couldn't be happier. Vanessa guided us through the whole process with selling. By following her instructions, we sold our condo in less than a week! The buying process was a little harder but Vanessa was so patient with us. She never forced us or pushed us along, she knew all the houses and neighborhoods we were interested in and was always willing to show us anything we requested. We felt very comfortable asking for her advice and opinions because we knew she would be honest with us and would not let us make a bad decision. We eventually found our forever home, which ended up being For Sale by Owner--not the ideal situation but Vanessa never faltered. She was there was us the whole time with negotiations, inspections, suggestions for any changes, recommendations for contractors, the whole nine yards. We would recommend Vanessa to anyone in a heartbeat. Not only was she amazing with the buying and selling process but we also feel like we made a friend out of it!

    • My husband and I had the pleasure to work with Vanessa in a difficult sale of our fixer-upper home. Vanessa was wonderful at marketing and extremely hardworking when selling our home. We received an offer within a month of the listing of the home. I cannot say enough nice things about her. She is dedicated, trustworthy, kind, caring, and quick to respond to your needs and questions. She will give you solid advice and reduce your anxiety. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs to purchase or sell their home.
