She helped us get our first home! My husband and I started the home buying process in fall 2020. We were a little shocked at how competitive the market was amongst other buyers. We had to submit several offers on homes. However, Vanessa guided us through the whole process and she explained the multiple offer situation and different scenarios so that the bidding process was not as intimidating as we thought it would be. The highlight of the home search process for us is that Vanessa gathered as much information as possible about each home, each seller, and each listing agent so that we knew the situation for each offer we placed and we placed our offers with confidence. Vanessa used creative methods and precise strategies to craft the terms of our various offers to match the very unique and specific situation of each home. Yes it was a competitive market but Vanessa made it so worth it and we absolutely love our new home. - Rebecca
Vanessa is determined to help in the best way possible. Deciding to sell our family home wasn't that easy but listing it with Vanessa was very smooth. She explained extensive market data and trends in the market. Vanessa went above and beyond to present the home in the most appealing fashion. She also navigated high demand, a plethora of showings from morning to evening (social distancing style), and her listing strategy helped us received a total of 17 offers and we sold for $65,000 over the asking price. Additionally, she helped us dive deep through all of the offers to look at every detail in the offer terms and she explained all of our options and different scenarios. We might have been concerned about the home appraising for $65,000 over the asking price. However, Vanessa met with the appraiser and diligently prepared a list of upgrades to the home, a list of comparable sold homes, and she was able to show the appraiser the amount of offers we received. We appraised at the purchase price from one of the strongest offers received. Needless to say, it was a successful escrow process. Vanessa helped us sell our family home with the least amount of hassle while generating maximum exposure and the best results at the time of the sale. - Christian
Vanessa has gone well above and beyond any other realtor, and I say this with confidence as she stuck with me for 2 years! Vanessa has worked with me since 2017 and stayed with us through a lengthy family court process dealing with our Trust. Vanessa has helped with everything from property information for our attorney to cleaning out the nasty residence and storage quotes. Once we were ready to list the property, she used her personal knowledge and profession skills to list, show and close the sale in ONE WEEK! Not only did she sell an ugly property, but the sale was for $85000 over the asking price. Vanessa is the nicest person and hardest working Agent you'll ever meet!
Vanessa is the BESTTTT. From the moment we started working with her she was in contact every day with useful, expert information. Thanks to her help, we beat out a ton of other offers and breezed through a shortened escrow (even with appraisal issues - in which she ended up saving us 20k btw). She has stayed in contact since the purchase and we are just so impressed with her work. I plan on recommending her to everyone I know (and don't know - that means you!). You won't be disappointed working with her. Thank you Vanessa!!!
Vanessa Spiva is Amazing, after my mom passed away I really didn’t know what I was going to do she left her house but I had no clue on what my next step would be ,a friend referred Vanessa and from the moment I met her she took control over the situation she referred me to a probate lawyer so I could start the process of selling the house, Vanessa was very informative, very honest, and an excellant negotiator. The weekend of our open house she had gotten several offers and because of Vanessa I was able to sell my mom house 1 year after her death. Vanessa made it all seem so easy.... I am so Thankful and blessed to have met Vanessa Spiva she is Awesome at what she does.
I met Vanessa while visiting an open house she was showing. My husband and I found her very engaging and personable. We immediately asked she be our agent. Vanessa was always quick to respond via email, phone and text. Because of her outstanding professional negotiation skills we locked in a purchase within one month of starting our search.
Vanessa went above and beyond to help me find my new place in the Hollywood Hills. Coming from out of state, I was unsure of what area would be the best fit for me and my business. My goal was to find a happening neighborhood but also private place to live. Opposites I know! However, Vanessa found homes that worked. She really knows every nook and cranny of Los Angeles. Beyond the home search, the negotiation process was the deal maker. Vanessa fought for me on every single item to ensure I got the best deal. If it was’t for her persistence in the negotiations, I would not have got the best deal on the home. Vanessa is persistent, determined, and highly efficient! One of the best up and coming Realtors in Los Angeles.
Vanessa was great. She is one of the reasons I'm now living in my own home. This is a big, big accomplishment for me and she played a crucial role. I'm very thankful. There were a few hiccups along the way, but Vanessa's care, concern, and desire to deliver for me was always apparent.
Vanessa helped us sell our home in Long Beach. We knew Long Beach was not in her normal area, so we were unsure if it was the best decision. A family member strongly recommended Vanessa and said we would not be disappointed regardless if it was outside of her normal area. And they were 100% right! She went above and beyond to make sure our home got as much as exposure as possible to get the highest offers! The first two weeks on the market she did 3 open houses a week, mailed out post cards to the neighbors, and did her own online marketing and Facebook paid ads (at no cost to us)! She was really aggressive with marketing our home and because of that we were in escrow within 13 days! Oh and did I mention we sold for 10,000 over our asking price! Vanessa is a great real estate professional and working with her we felt so relaxed and at ease that she was on top of everything from start to finish. Thank you Vanessa!
Vanessa was a pleasure to work with. Her professionalism exceeded my expectations and she had excellent communication. When I first started looking for a place I wasn't sure if I wanted to look for a condo or a home. I had also considered a duplex or triplex. Given the fact that I wasn't really sure on which path I wanted to take Vanessa made sure to expose me to all options. That exposure was a great way to guide me towards what ended up being a great place and a great price. I am so glad that I worked with Vanessa. I will utilize her expertise in the future.
Vanessa had great qualities of diligence, aggressiveness when needed, patience and deft negotiating ability. She was the steady hand in the room when the other parties were threatening to spin out of control. She has an army of fierce professionals that she has at her disposal that helped me with full loan underwriting before making the offer. She also referred me to an ace agent to help me sell a couple of my out of state properties quickly, as well as construction personnel, inspectors and crafts people to make my house escrow and purchase extremely easy. She was able to close escrow in 21 days, as well as helped me to place an accepted offer 80k below asking. Because of Vanessa I completed 3 easy escrows in 3 months. I'm one happy camper.
Vanessa is such a pleasant person to work with and most importantly she gets the job done efficiently! She made my purchase a top priority and did not give up until I found the perfect home. I only had a month to find a place and she made it happen! Vanessa really understood my needs and wants in my new home and she really filtered through all the homes on the market and only scheduled showings for homes that met at least 80% of my criteria. This saved me a lot of time so I was not driving around LA looking at homes that wouldn't come close to what I wanted. Then when it came time to decide between my top two homes, Vanessa really helped me lay out all the strengths and weakness of each house so I was able to compare my favorite homes. My biggest fear was that I would make the wrong decision and choose the wrong house but with her help she kept me focused on the most important aspects of the home such as layout, a home office, and also a great space to entertain. When it came time to decide on the home I wanted I felt confident that I made the right decision and got the best price for the home! I'm so thankful for Vanessa's help. I couldn't have done it without her!
I buy and sell houses for a living and typically my interactions with agents is usually sub-par. However, since meeting and working with Vanessa she has been nothing but a blessing. She has gone over and above multiple times. She listened to my needs, did her homework, and didnt give up. Her skill set and knowledge of the LA market is superior and extremely helpful. She would be the one I would call any day of the week for my real estate needs. If you are looking for a pleasant professional who works hard for her clients and gets the job then search no longer, you just found her.
I've been working with Vanessa for over 4 months, and I am very pleased to have crossed ways with her. She is very attentive, knowledgeable, but most important reliable, and very helpful. Vanessa takes pride in building relationships, and getting the job done. She goes beyond then just making a transaction, she cares about who she is working with, looks out for their best interest. I've never had a problem in getting a hold of her, she is flexible, willing, and able to assist with anything and at anytime. My experience working with her has been great, always looking at ways to help me get the best of our working relationship. I highly recommend Vanessa in working with anyone on their real estate needs, she is professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and very attentive to ones needs.
Vanessa is amazing. She is young and professional and already an expert in her field. Her energy is contagious. It took us three other realtors to finally find her! We were millennials trying to be first-time home buyers, so nervous and unacknowledged with the process of buying a home, we didn't even know where to start. We met with three other realtors prior to her and none were engaging nor even interested in working with us, you could FEEL that they didn't have our best interest. Vanessa was recommended to us by an old friend, from the first phone call to us closing escrow she was there every step of the way as our guide! Any questioned we had were answered, she made herself available practically 24hrs/day, no text was ever left unanswered. During escrow we hit a few bumps, some changes had to be made and Vanessa was there to help us. She even made switching lenders a breeze! Things eventually realigned and all went smoothly. We got the keys to our first house! I honesty am impressed with Vanessa, she has a bright future ahead of her because not only is she knowledgeable but she is also a person that has her client's best interested in mind and that is honestly hard to come by these days!
Vanessa was great from start to finish during the sale of our property. She not only listed the property quickly, but also assisted with the Staging as well. I believe that due to her great marketing via social media and flyers, this created a great turn out at the open houses. The entire process ran smoothly and her creativity and skills made for a smooth transaction and a quick close right on time. Her professionalism and knowledge were highly displayed and very much appreciated. I would highly recommend Vanessa to anyone in need of a excellent Realtor!
Vanessa is such a pleasure to work with! Being a young first time buyer right out of college, I had to no idea where to start. She made sure to answer all of my questions along the way and I appreciate her patience. Throughout the whole process of finding a place that fit our budget, location, and space, Vanessa made sure to schedule many appointments to look at properties to accommodate and plan around our free time. When we finally found a place that my family and I could agree on, we moved quickly to be the first offer in and were able to close escrow in less than a month! But her help didn't stop there, Vanessa even went with me at 6:30 am before work to sign all of the documents needed to close escrow, which I really appreciate because I was nervous. She is very intelligent, trustworthy, personable, and confident which are qualities are necessary for an amazing agent. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help in buying a home!
