Helped me buy and sell homes
Six months prior to lising my home, I contacted Vito letting him know my intentions of listing in the near future. He came out to my home and suggested some small cosmetic improvements I could make to really up the value. I spent several months making these changes and also completed the showcase walk through prior to listing. The showcase walk through provided pics and suggestions of how to stage my home and was very effective. I received numerous above asking price offers within days of listing. I also used Vito to purchase a home and although there were numerous setbacks, including a low appraisal, he was able to negotiate and get the deal done. I highly recommend Vito and will be using him on any future real estate transactions. Mike Less ... More

Vito was very professional and knowledgeable in the sale of our home. He showed comparisons which helped to define the price range. Vito gave clear advice on what we should do to our home in order to sell it quickly and in our desired price range. When problems arose (as the often do) he addressed them in a timely manner and gave suggestions to solve the issues, or handled them for us.

Vito was the ultimate professional He laid out a winning plan for me to follow and I did just that. By following the plan that Vito laid out to me, I was able to find a buyer for my home in as little as five days. I knew Vito was good at his job that is why I hired him, but I had no idea that he was this amazing at showing and selling homes.

Vito was an absolute pleasure to work with! He is an attentive listener and modified his home recommendations to meet our needs and desires in a new home. Vito spent a substantial amount of time with our family showing us homes but I never felt pressured by him just so he could make a sale. He is always extremely responsive, polite and professional which is a sign of his dedication to his clients. I would not hesitate in recommending him to friends or family.

Vito spent time discussing his marketing strategy and how to prepare to sell our home. My wife and I followed Vito's advice with great results our house sold within days of being listed. Vito has also been very helpful in our search for a new home.

Vito was a great realtor during our home search! We were very specific to location/price, and Vito was very patient and helpful during our search. He helped us find the perfect home for us, and he was great at offering advice in all aspects of homebuying. I would definitely recommend Vito to anyone looking for a new home!

I was recommended to give Vito a call through my sister. I received a response the same day. He immediately asked me what I was looking for and made a plan to get me into houses asap. Whenever I had a question or a comment he would respond within the hour. Through the whole process he was professional and effective.

I went into the process not really knowing much about buying a home. I was conflicted on where I wanted to be, why type of home, and the price range. I just let Vito know what I was interested in and he did an excellent job showing me exactly what I asked. Even being unsure of what I wanted, he never had any issues looking at as many homes as I wanted. He was able to find me a great home, in a great area, and at a great price. He made the whole process very easy and was always quick to respond to my questions with knowledge answers. Thank again Vito! Less ... More

I was looking for a foreclosed house in a certain area to use as an income property. Vito set me up so as soon as a foreclosure came up in my requested area I would get an email. If I wanted to look at a house Vito would be ther with-in a couple of hours to show it to me, and offered great advise on what each house would need to get it ready to rent. When I found the house I liked Vito made it happen. Probably the easiest house purchase I have ever been part of. I highly recommend him.

Vito is very professional and has a lot of experience in real estate. By following Vito's advice on setting the right selling price, we sold our home in just 2 days! We put it on the market and had 4 offers (all higher than our home was listed) within those 2 days. We were truly amazed at how fast it sold and closed. We are now working with him to buy a new home. Because of the low inventory on the housing market, we are having a hard time finding the perfect home. Vito is patient with us and has spent a lot of time with us, informing us of the process of purchasing a new home. He understands our needs and wants in a new home, and I?m certain with his help we will find a new home very soon. We have and we will continue to recommend Vito Dolci as an excellent choice for a realtor. Less ... More

I couldn't have asked for a better realtor. Vito was very patient with my search because I was targeting a very specific area. Anytime I found a house I wanted tp go through, he always made time either that day or the next. He would even call me if something came up that he thought I would be interested in. He knew a lot about the houses and gave excellent ideas on how to improve the value. He answered all my questions and concerns and if he wasn't entirely sure, he would be honest that he didnt know, do his research, and promptly get back to me. This in itself was what gave me the most comfort that I was dealing with a professional. Overall, my experience was great and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a patient, knowledgable realtor. Less ... More

Vito did a great job! He took me to 25+ houses before I found the right one. He took time with questions, concerns and was very knowledgable. What I liked best was that he was respectful and personable. I will definately use his services again in the future.

From day 1 Vito's services were exceptional. He was easy to reach at anytime and very knowledgable regarding all aspects of the business. He referred an inspector, lender, home insurer, as well as a general contractor. They all checked out to be excellent with very competitive pricing. I highly suggest using Vito Dolci and 5 Star Real Estate. Thanks Vito.

Vito took me through many homes in the Grand Rapids area. He was open to take me to any home that I found online and suggested many properties in the area until I found the "one". After Vito wrote up the initial offer while meeting in person to sign, we used electronic signatures, email, and phone to coordinate the updated details of the deal. (This is very convenient for those that keep fairly busy schedules like me.) He made the process very smooth and provided an outstanding first time home buying experience. Less ... More

Vito Jr. was very knowledgeable and energetic in assisting us with our first home purchase. He had an extremely flexible schedule and was willing to answer questions for us early in the morning or late at night. He was more than willing to travel to the Kalamazoo area to assist us with our home purchase. He did a great job negotiating with the seller to get our house at a great price. Overall great service and support!

We have worked with Vito Jr. and his Dad Vito Sr. on (3) previous deals. They have listed and sold all (3) of our homes for us. They are very knowledgeable with the local market, and did a fantastic job of marketing and selling our homes. When we listed our last home with them and 5 Star, they had it sold in less than a week !! We would highly recommend working with them if you are looking to buy or sell a home. We were very impressed with their service and couldn't be happier with the results ! Less ... More

He was great..... He help my new wife and I find our first home. The first house we were going to buy was a short sale. This process takes a long time. He was very knowledgeable and would give us updates as we went along. After 3 months the bank came back with a counter offer and we thought it was to high. Instead of going through the long wait again, we had Vito start showing us new homes. He was able to find us the house we wanted. It was tough because we wanted to be close to the action but have a privet back yard. We found a house that was a little more than I wanted to spend. Vito was able to talk them down to a price that I was comfortable to pay for my first home. Thanks Vito for helping us get a great house :) Less ... More

Vito Dolci Jr. helped me and my wife Amanda purchase our first home in Grand Rapids, MI. Since we had a short engagement, we only had about 4 months to search. Vito was very patient will my many questions and got the answers to all of them. Finally, after looking at many houses that were not a good fit and only one month until our wedding, Vito showed us a house that he and his brother had just remodeled. It was the ideal house for us, and we closed the day before our wedding! Thanks again Vito! David C. Shaheen Licensed Insurance Agent davidcshaheen.com Less ... More

Vito was recommended to my boyfriend & me, by a friend of my mother's. Our experience was tremendous. This was our 1st time purchasing a house, so we were obviously overwhelmed by the whole process!! ... Vito was extremely patient with us. It was clear to me that he would show us 200 houses if we needed him to! ... His constant contact with us was awesome! I remember STRESSING out about (something) at 9 o'clock at night- I text messaged Vito my question, & he called me 5 minutes later with the answer. That was really important to me. ... Looking at houses was fun, too! Vito got excited right along with us when we found some that we really liked! ... I have recommended Vito to several people now, including my brother- who ended up purchasing the house right next door to us!! ...& several months later, Vito came to our double-housewarming party, & we were definitely happy to see him.
