Bought a home in 2012.

I have known Vera for many years through our association at our church. She has always been a highly moral and wonderful friend. Recently I had my first opportunity to see her in action when I asked her to help us purchase a condo for our daughters to live in. Vera knows everyone, and is amazing at finding listings that fit your needs, and working to make the purchase happen. She also has a list of service people to recommend if you need to have work done on either the home you are selling or the one you are buying. I know that when we are ready to sell our home, she will be the one we call, even though I know she will tell me all the things I have to do to get it ready to sell and she will be right! She is also very knowledgeable about price points when it comes time to sell and I would trust her implicitly. She is very busy, but really cares about all her clients. You will not be sorry if you engage her services.  More Less

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Southside Flats, Pittsburgh, PA.

We have had multiple transactions with Vera over the last twenty years. She has always been extremely helpful and responsive whether we were window shopping or ready to buy or sell. She is a keen negotiator and very knowledgeable regarding the overall market and micro markets. She is definitely an expert and we would never hesitate to use or recommend her to anyone.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Pittsburgh, PA.

This is the second home that Vera has sold for me and she is a force of nature. Both times I had some painting and clean up that I wanted to do before selling the homes and I was having trouble finding service providers. Engaging Vera was like bringing in a full team of conscientious providers. For each of my maintenance needs, she had a vendor that was responsive and skilled and not overpriced, who came in and performed all the necessary repairs. This last sale became complicated because the furnace didn't pass the inspection, so I was facing a $2500 replacement cost. Vera reminded me that she had purchased warranty on the house that would cover this expense ... and because of Vera's ingenuity and strength of character, the furnace got replaced and was not my burden. I couldn't recommend her more highly.  More Less
