Selling Your Home

What Makes a Home Sell for Top Dollar?


When to Sell

Timing is everything when it comes to selling. I will create a plan to help you sell quickly and for the highest price. I will keep you informed about the transaction process and the current state of the housing market.


Preparing to Sell

Now that you've made the decision to sell your house, I will help you put your best foot forward in the preparation process — from walking you through the property valuation, staging tips, advising you on possible renovations or necessary repairs. With my assistance, you'll be armed with the crucial information you need to attract buyers and get the best price possible.

Attracting Buyers

I will market your home to the right buyers with my comprehensive marketing strategy, including exposure on the most popular real estate websites, and hosting open houses and individual tours for qualified buyers.


Congratulations! You've received an offer on your house. But now what? Before completing your transaction, there will be a few last-minute tasks to deal with — are you prepared to tie up any loose ends? Not to worry with me on your team. I will be there to make sure you're ready for everything that comes next, including offering guidance on whether you should accept that offer or not.

For real estate, I only go with one person and that's Vanessa. For my first two homes, I've gone with different agents until I met Vanessa. She helped us get into our third home in 2013 when the market was so competitive. She was very thorough, knowledgeable, understands the markets by location and most importantly was very good at understanding our needs. I had such a positive experience with her that I asked her to help sell our condo in Mountain View last year as a 1031 exchange for a property in Santa Cruz. She sold our house in under a week after it went on market well above our asking price. And rather than take on a city she didn't have solid knowledge in, she recommended another agent to assist us with the exchange. I've never met an agent who's so qualified in so many ways. I don't think I can ever go with anyone else again!

We had purchased our home a decade earlier through Vanessa so it made perfect sense to work with a known closer when we made the decision to put our home on the market.

We wanted to sell the house with as little hassle as possible, and we did. vanessa's selection of workmen made painting and other on sale tasks easy.

We got the result we wanted, a quick sale for truly top dollar. I'm out of market now, and would recommend Vanessa for your move.

Hands down the best realtor I have worked with. Vanessa helped me sell my property in Castro Valley. She gave me sound advice on ways to maximize my profit as the seller.

She was professional, courteous, patient and was always available to answer my questions day or night. She gave me constant updates when the transaction was in escrow with clear outlines so I knew exactly what to expect. Her sound advice and experience was able to get me $81,000 over listing price.

I am looking forward to use her again when I am ready to purchase my new home. I have referred her to many of my family and friends. I highly recommend her if you are looking for someone to look out for your best interest as both the seller or buyer.-

Vanessa is an excellent agent! She is genuinely warm and friendly, from the moment I first talked with her on the phone I knew her expertise and knowledge was what I needed and it proved to be true. Her leadership and guidance led to a very lucrative transaction in what I think was a challenging case. I was amazed at her attentive and authentic concern for my needs. She is professional, and kept me informed on every detail that I needed to know, and handled all other aspects routinely. Her work ethics are beyond honorable, it was a true pleasure to work with her!

We worked with 3 other realtors and they are not all equal, unfortunately. Vanessa is excellent - thoroughly knowledgeable, experienced with complex transactions, and with great follow through and attention to detail. She will be our agent for life!
