Team reviews

My experience with Kelli has been nothing short of spectacular. Kelli's knowledge of the market, the industry, and her negotiating skills are top notch, a true Real Estate Professional in every sense of the word. Kelli helped us sell our house in California and despite us living out of state, Kelli and her team handled the transaction with ease and we always felt comfortable and at peace knowing that Kelli and her team had every thing under control, even when things did not always go as planned. However, the most important asset about Kelli is that she truly cares for her clients and always goes above and beyond her normal duties. She's charming, charismatic and always very positive. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER for buying and/or selling your next house.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Etiwanda, CA.

We had Miya Cattilini from Kelli's office as our seller's agent and she was Awesome. Miya was very helpful and made us feel very comfortable about the whole process of selling our house. She is very knowledgeable in listing and selling techniques - especially in negotiating the best price for the sellers. We ended up selling our house at much higher price than we listed for and higher than any other house in our neghbourhood, infact a similar house to ours was sold at the same time we sold and they received much lower price. We will definately recommend Kelli's office for your real estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

I can highly recommend Vance and Kelli Vanevenhoven and their team of experts. They help me time and time again expand my real estate portfolio and no one negotiates better for me than Kelli.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Etiwanda, CA.

We got in touch with Kelli Vanevenhoven and team to give us an estimate for our property in Rancho Cucamonga. Miya from Kelly's team came over and not just gave us an estimate, she inquired into what we were trying to do with it. We were sitting on our property waiting for prices to break even so we could pay off our mortgage and relocate from Rancho Cucamonga to San Francisco, for better job prospects and to be closer to family. We anticipated it would take at least another 3 years before that would happen. After asking us a bunch of questions and going through multiple scenarios, Miya educated us on an option that would allow us to sell right away, without foreclosure or a conventional short sale, no significant hit on our credit AND with the bank giving us between $3k to $30k to relocate to San Francisco. We could hardly believe it till she explained the process in detail. Turns out there is a 'HAFA' short sale we were eligible for if we could show that we had to relocate to SF for my job, which I did. This qualified it as a "hardship" although we are very secure financially and never missed a payment. Also, our credit would not be hit significantly and we would be eligible to buy a new home in SF in a year, which was good enough for us since we wanted to wait at least 2 years before deciding where in the SF Bay area we wanted to live in permanently. Given Miya's impressive knowledge of the process and the fact that the Vanevenhoven team had clearly done this successfully with multiple clients, we decided to go ahead with it. After writing a letter to our bank with Miya's help, lo and behold, our bank approved us for a HAFA short sale. Miya also mentioned tax implications of loan forgiveness and how there is a current provision that exempts us from tax. Icing on the cake. Once she listed our property, we got a lot of people coming over to look at the place and got multiple offers within 2 weeks of listing. It took about 4 months for the process to complete, mainly because our bank sat on the HAFA paperwork through the holiday season and because our first two buyers/offers backed out or did not qualify for a loan. On the plus side, each subsequent offer was for a higher amount than asking. We recently closed escrow and got a check for the full $30k in relocation assistance from our bank!! We live in San Francisco now and couldn't be happier. Thank you Kelli, Miya and Renee from Blackstone Realty. Never in a million years would we have believed that we would be debt free and living in our dream city this fast. You guys are the best!! Highly, highly recommended... I have worked with mulitple realtors over the years but none as informed, competent and professional as Kelli Vanevenhoven and team.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Victorville, CA.

It was ABSOLUTELY the best experience ever!! Nicci Barton was my agent and I couldn't have been more BLESSED! Nicci was very attentive to my needs. When I was beginning to get a little desperate (looking at everything and anything), Nicci reeled me back in and steered me in a better direction. Within 3 weeks Nicci had found me a beautiful house that I now call HOME! Not only did I get my home, I was blessed with a new friendship. Thank you, Nicci, for all your patience and many miles of searching, along with your late night showings. I couldn’t have done it without you!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Orangecrest, Riverside, CA.

We recently purchased a house in Riverside and our agent was Nicci Barton. I dont really know if there are words that can express how amazing Nicci was. Some of words that I would use are professional, attentive, good-listener, advocate, friendly, fun and caring. My husband and I have repeatedly said that our house buying experience would not have been as easy as it was without Nicci and Vance Vanevenhoven assisting us every step of the way. I would defintely recommend Kelli Vanevenhoven, and especially Nicci, to anyone looking to buy, or sell, their house.

Nicci Barton was absolutely fantastic. My wife and I could not imagine going through the process of buying our new home without the help, assistance and friendship of Nicci Barton and Vance Vanevenhoven. They were both extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and were available at the drop of the hat 7 days a week. The two of them worked extremely hard on this purchase for us. If anyone needs a real estate agent I would definitely recommend the Vanevenhoven Team. We have established a new friendship with Nicci and Vance based on our experience with them during the purchase of our home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Fontana, CA.

The primary realtor working with me was Nicci Barton. Nicci was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about all aspects of the home buying process. It took several months to finally locate and negotiate a deal for the home we wanted. During that entire process, Nicci was always available and worked tirelessly to research and recommend the type of home we wanted. The end result was a home we loved at the price we could afford. I would certainly recommend Blackstone Realty to anyone interested in buying a home.
