Vanessa did a great job! She was very helpful and had answers to all of our questions. She gave us as much time as we needed to make our decision and never pushed us to buy fast! We found a great place with her help!

Vanessa knows the area well that we were looking in and was very accommodating with appointments and calls. She conveyed helpful information through out the buying process. This being our 2nd house ever bought-we were absolutely thrilled with the whole experience from start to finish. Vanessa had a great working relationship with our Attorney and the Mortgage company. Completely satisfied clients!!

The website found me my dream townhouse. Vanessa made it a reality for me. When I wanted another look, she arranged it immediately. She also sold my beautiful old house. She kept me informed on the offers and always responded promptly. She did everything promised.

VANESSA WALKED ME THROUGH ALL THE STEPS AND KEPT IN TOUCH WITH ME IN A TIMELY MANNER WITH NO DISRUPTION TO MY LIFESTYLE. I DIDN'T HAVE TO VIEW VERY MANY PLACES IN PERSON AS THE WEBSITE WAS VERY HELPFUL IN SEEING WHAT WORKED FOR ME. WHEN I WANTED A SECOND LOOK AT THE PLACE I EVENTUALLY BOUGHT, SHE ARRANGED IT ON THE SPOT. I LOVE MY NEW PLACE AND VANESSA MADE IT A REALITY. THANKS VANESSA, PAM

This is the 2nd time I have worked with Vanessa to find a home, and on both occasions, she did a fantastic job. Her knowledge of the area is outstanding and her patience is incredible. We spend weeks looking at homes with her and she always made herself available to show us as many homes as we wanted to see. Her #1 priority was helping us find a home that we really wanted. If we're ever in the market to buy again, We will definitely be contacting Vanessa.

Vanessa was the 3rd agent we worked with when we decided to buy .From the very start when we first engaged with her she was spot on and worked tirelessly with us always making herself available to our schedule and only showing us what we wanted and our locations. She always was available for questions and held our hand throughout with a very professional and calm manner. She became like family . She is an excellent realtor and we will refer her over and over . Thank you for having her on your team she is the finest example of "integrity" for your company .

Vanessa was really patient with us as we were looking for homes. We were actually looking for homes to rent until I found the one we just purchased. It is my dream house and my husband and i couldn't be any more happier. We have full intentions of purchasing another one with Vanessa as our agent. I like Vanessa a lot she always answered my text messages right away and answered all of my questions. I would recommend Vanessa to anyone looking for a home, she is very porfessional

Vanessa Martinez is absolutely the BEST!!!!! My wife and I were first time home buyers. We were trying to buy a nightmare of a short sale for a year. She stuck with us the whole time. Everything that could go wrong went wrong. NONE of which were her fault :) We ended up having to walk away. She was completely dedicated to getting my wife and I into our first home. I never felt like it was all about her pay check which was so nice. Vanessa and I must have looked at at least 100 homes ( no joke) before finding our new home ( I was picky ) we ended up finding a home in the town we wanted in our price range that is twice the size of the short sale we tried to buy. Now we own our dream home and we owe that to Vanessa and her hard work and dedication. She ended up being more than our Realtor she became our friend and look forward to seeing her when we have our house warming party. Thanks again Vanessa and thank you zip you guys got yourself a great employee.

Vanessa provided me with a level of service beyond what I was expecting. She was always willing to adapt to my schedule which often involved short notice on her end. She was knowledgeable with various types of real estate (i.e. single-family, condo, townhouse) and various types of transactions (short sale, foreclosure). I was so impressed that I referred my brother to her. Thanks Vanessa!

I cannot believe how accomodating and easy going Vanessa was with us. Being a first time buyer we had a lot of questions and she was amazing at explaining everything to us. Not to mention there was no pressure. What I loved about her was that she took the initative and took what we were looking for and found us the perfect home in our price range. We would have never thought to look at the home that she showed us!! The best agent out there, thank you!

After the closing, we have experienced some difficulty in some items that were suppose to forth. We have not gotten these items as of today (9/6/06): Garage door opener, the door bell fixed, and the license # of the roofer. Vanessa always ahs gotten back to us ASAP when we were looking for a home, but now I feel like we have been put on the back burner. I understand these items need to come from the seller, but I trusted Vanessa completely, so we signed and closed.
