Team reviews

Being a real estate attorney and investor, I have dealt with hundreds of real estate professionals over the years. Nick did a wonderful job. He was very responsive and professional. He handled the negotiations in a calm, intelligent manner. Consequently, I have no hesitation in recommending him to clients or friends.

I enjoy working with Nick. He always gets right back to me when I have any questions. He is a very hard worker and gets results. He was always available to show us homes.

Donna, I try very hard to be available and if not to respond as quickly as possible to both customers and other agents. Buying or selling a home can be confusing and people always have questions, by being available we can remove a lot of the anxiety and stress.

Bought a home in 2012 in Berwyn, Devon-Berwyn, PA 19312.

I would highly recommend working with Trudy. I first worked with her to list my condo and ended up liking her so much, I also worked with her to buy our current house. She was very responsive and offered great advice. I honestly felt like she had our best interests at heart and wanted to help us find the perfect house for our family. In the end, she helped us find the perfect house! I would recommend her and Nick to anyone and will definitely use them again if we need a realtor.

Trudy is execellent at her job. I felt she really understood the type of house we wanted and was always prompt to get back to us when we had questions or concerns. Her expertise allowed us to get the "Dream House" we wanted at a great deal. I was extrememly impressed and had a great experience working with Trudy! I highly recommend her!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in West Chester, PA.

I could not be happier with the experience and outcome of having Trudy as my realtor. Her knowledge of the local market, her ability to price my house correctly, her advice along the way, and her attention to detail....all led to a quick sale of my home at a price I was very happy with. Thank you Trudy!!!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in West Chester, PA.

Trudy's great reputation preceded her but she far exceeded our expectations! Her accurate pricing and negotiating skills led to a very speedy sale while similar houses in the community are still languishing on the market. As we had never sold a home before, we appreciated her expertise in navigating the process. We highly recommend the Vandekar Team.

Bought a Condo home in 2011 in Phoenixville, PA.

As a first time home buyer, I really was ignorant on the subject and just the process in general. Nick was able to show me just how much I could get with my budget and in fact far surpass my expectations.

He took the time to go over the process and convey expectations at each step. While doing so, I was really able to get a feel for Nick's knowledge of real estate which surely made me understand the difference between Realtor and Real Estate Agent. From the get go, Nick's communication, friendliness and courtesy was bar none. Never did I feel pressured or rushed and was only treated with respect; something one is to expect from a professional such as Nick.

Nick was very attentive to my wants in his search to find a home with the characteristics I desired, all on a very tight time frame. Not only did Nick fill those desires but he far surpassed them in finding a home that I had thought was unattainable for the budget.

It was a great pleasure working with Nick.

Sold a home in 2011 in Saint Davids, Chesterbrook, PA 19087.

Most of my experience was with Trudy. Trudy was my agent for both buying a new house and selling my old house.

House buying - I was not the normal buyer, I am recently retired, looking for a new life so my wife and I decided to look at farms. All of the looking was in the winter and the winter in Phlly was brutal, record snowfalls. Trudy would go out with me in the deepest snow, she even helped pushed the stuck truck out of a driveway. One of the farms had a very long driveway, unshoveled and we trudged through knee deep snow (no exaggeration) to the house with snow shovel in hand to see it. We looked at 28 farms, and they take sometime to look at because of size and outbuildings and such. Trudy knows the neighborhoods and is patient. So I heartily recommend her.

House Selling - My house was modest, nicely redone of course, in a good location. But the conditions of the market then and still were challenging. The home was listed for 6 months. We updated the listing for appearance a few times, both Trudy and Nick held open houses, I believe in total there were 8. Including the brokers open. Trudy was always fast on the response and keeping me uptodate, Both Nick and Trudy recommended some upgrades, all within reason. The home sold to a great new owner I might add. So for selling, Nick and Trudy are very responsive and active in the process, your listing will not languish with them.

Thank you Dennis, we try hard to be responsive and are believers in Open Houses when so many buyers today are out looking without agents at homes due to sites like Zillow.

Bought a home in 2011 in South West Fargo, West Fargo, ND 58078.

I was looking for a house in a new area and wanted a trustworthy sounding board. I reached out to Trudy, who, although was not familiar with the area I was looking, was an excellent resource as she guided me through what questions I should be asking my local realtor and what things I should be expecting from the process. Not only did she take time to field my questions, but she went above and beyond, doing research on the area in which I was looking to make sure I was getting the most out of my realtor. I found a great house and I'm feeling completely confident and excited about my purchase. I would not have been able to accomplish this without Trudy's advice and support.

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Malvern, PA.

Nick Vandekar not only found us a great home for our family, but did so with a friendly manner. If there were ever a person to make a stressful long distance move tolerable, it is Nick! We had a tough time table and Nick was creative, resourceful and committed to finding us what we needed. When we look to buy in the next year, we are, without hesitation, working with Nick. He is honest, hardworking and very prompt in communicating with us, as well as with the home owners and other agents. He was very clear in explaining paperwork and each step of the process with us. We couldn't have asked for a better man to work with our family.
