As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange to finance, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
"Yoana is wonderful. We met her at an open house and were impressed with how knowledgeable she was. We decided to choose her as our agent and we couldn't be happier with our choice. Through the process she was very responsive, thorough and honest. Yoana takes her duty to her client very seriously. We felt well represented and very confident, and never felt rushed. She had great patience for all our questions. In addition she is very sweet and fun. We really enjoyed working with her. We highly recommend Yoana."

"Yoana Is an amazing realtor. She worked with my husband and I for quite some time. Learning what we liked/didn’t like, fully understanding our budget. Buying a house is stressful! But with Yoana; she is attentive and understands what you’re looking for. She answered every single one of my calls, answered all my questions, and showed me every single property we were interested in. Once we finally found a house we loved, she made the final process easy. We closed in 21 days and to this day I’m still amazed how simple she made everything. Yoana took on all the stress I’m suppose to have. If we didn’t fully understand certain paper work, she would clearly explain everything. Even after we got the keys Yoana said we could call her to ask any questions. We will definitely be using her again and will recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home."
"Yoana is pretty amazing. We chose her to be our agent in our home search. She is always accessible and would answer any question that you might have. She was very patient with us while we narrowed down the location that we were looking to buy. She was able to support us with providing several lender options and after we closed she also was able to provide contractor options. The closing process was very quick and smooth – she quickly addressed all questions and we closed without any delays. I would highly recommend her!"
"Yoana is a pleasure to work with. She is dedicated to her clients, loves what she does, she’s extremely efficient, resourceful and a true professional. We have worked with her on a few occasions - renting out a rental property and home purchases - and we will definitely be working with her for any of our real estate needs. We highly recommend Yoana to anyone looking to buy or sell and we wish her many more successful transactions and happy clients!"
