It was a pleasure doing business with Sandy Van. She met with us the day after Thanksgiving, taking the time to explain the short sale process. She was clear and concise, giving us hope that we would get out from under our home. She quoted us 3-6 months. She short sold our home in 4 months. Sandy was quick to answer any questions or concerns that I had. I truly appreciate all of her countless hours, late night emails, and constant communication. For such a daunting process, Sandy Van and her team helped navigate through this process with ease. We are grateful for all of their efforts. Less ... More

Sandy was extremely helpful when representing us in our short sale process. Her and her team were on top of things when contacting the lender and keeping us informed of what documents we needed and where we were at in the process. It's difficult to get big lending companies to cooperate but she worked hard to get us approved and it was a success. We are very happy with the knowledge, patience and work ethic she displayed while helping us get our short sale processed. She was recommended to us by a friend, that she also successfully helped, and we can see why. Less ... More

Sandy never stops working to find you the best solution, even if it is not in her best interest. Her goal is to find the best possible outcome for you regardless of her bottom line, and that is the ultimate customer service in my opinion - a truly lost art in our society today. Thank you, Sandy.

Highly professional, got my house sold in a week for a higher price than I had expected. Paperwork was made so easy, most documents were submitted and signed via internet. Sandy also quickly responded to any questions or concerns I had in a positive knowledgable manner. I would recommend her to anyone that is buying or selling their home or property. Vivienne

Helped me buy home
Sandy was helping us to get the perfect investment house for us. She and her team made themselves available around the clock including the weekends to show a property or answer any questions we had. Their office is well organized, kept all our files on records (never had to resend a thing). They were also prompt in helping us to meet the deadlines when the time of the closing came. We have used Sandy's legal advise on how to acquire the title, and some other aspects of the short sale closing package we got from the bank. Overall very satisfied and have already recommended her to several friends. Less ... More

I used Sandy for three short sales. She was exactly what you'd hope for in a realtor throughout the long process - patient, knowledgeable, responsive, and aggressive when necessary. I've recommended her to others, and will continue to do so in the future.

Sandy and her team were outstanding. They represented me and my abilities to the fullest! She handled the harassing phone calls and stopped them, and was even on conference calls with me to the banks to ensure my rights were represented. She even stopped a call when an evoked my rights when a banks call became too intrusive and threatening. I can't really thank her and her team enough for short sailing my rental property enough. She and her team are really Great!!! I don't know where we would have been without her. Less ... More

Sandy Van and her team have worked diligently with me in helping to short sell my house. This process is stressful for anyone, but Sandy assured me and helped me through the entire process. What I really liked about this firm is how easy I could contact anyone at really any time. There are lots of questions and concerns that arise while short selling a home, and I always was able to get answers right away instead of leaving messages with receptionists. I felt I really got to know Sandy and that she cared about me and my situation. I did not feel like a number or just another customer, which to me was important. Less ... More

The short sale of our property was extremely complicated because we had to deal with the eviction of non-paying tenants, the repair of water damage and mold removal from the home, and buyers who were impatient with the short sale process. Each time a problem arose, Sandy responded with professionalism and frequent self-sacrifice of her time. Once when a buyer backed out at the last minute, she fought to get us the earnest money due to us, and she repeatedly encouraged us to continue the process despite its tediousness. We are thankful for this support, as the sale would not have gone through without Sandy! Less ... More

Sandy got a short sale done on our house in North Las Vegas. We owed $340,000 and the house appraised at $145,000. She kept sending me success stories about her getting short sales done, no settlement payment, with all the deficiency waived. Honestly, I was skeptical until she did the same for us - we were $195,000 upside down and she got us out, thank goodness, without paying anything and without being sued for the deficiency. She's very, very tenacious. I'm referring her to my father in law to help him sell his house. David Dasher Less ... More

Our house went up for short sale back in March of 2012. We stayed current on our payments and were very impressed with how easy it was to work with Sandy and her team. She made this process so easy and smooth for us. She set really clear expectations in the beginning of the process as to what to expect. We actually had anticipated much more push-back from our lender, which did not happen. Sandy was always readily available through phone or email at any time of the week, day or night. She stays on top of things throughout the entire process and really appreciate her help and support in assisting us with our short sale. Our short sale actually closed 9/01/2012. If you are looking for someone to assist you in any of your real estate needs, Sandy is the right person. She did a great job and really appreciate all her hard work. Less ... More

Worked VERY hard to negotiate my short sale with Bank of America of all banks! She was always very professional and knowledgeable and exceeded my expectations as a realtor. In fact, she made sure my interest was protected throughout the entire process and it was a LENGTHY process, but she never gave up.

I found Sandy Van via Zillow when I was looking to buy an investment property in North Las Vegas. She is very pleasant to work with and always has my best interest in mind. She works extremely hard and is willing to go extra miles for her clients. What I appreciate most of Sandy is that after my purchase officially closed, there was an issue with the seller regarding some "attached items" which were not identified in the purchase agreement. Sandy could have refused to get involved since the deal was closed but she made herself available to help address the issue, making a couple extra trips to the property for me being an out-state buyer. I'd highly recommend Sandy to anyone! Buyer, Olympia Washington Less ... More

Worked with Sandy for 5 months total and have adopted her as part of our family. We looked at a lot of homes, we had some very strict requirements and she prescreened for us. It made our trips to Nevada less stressful. We put many bids in and finally got one accepted and closed on property within 60 days. I would recommend her services to anyone.

Sandy handled our short sale quickly and professionally. Other than signing paperwork we hardly had to do anything at all. She was able to answer any questions we had quickly and thoroughly. The house was listed and sold within a week and they didn't even have to put a sign in the front yard! Dealing with Sandy was low stress experience.

We can't say enough about Sandy Van. We started our short sale process in July and we are closing in December. Sandy knows her business and is able to expedite the process with expertise. The most difficult part of dealing with the banks is the paper request and communication. Sandy asks for the requested information and she expedites forwarding info to the banks and then knowing who to communicate with banks. This eliminates all the delays associated with the short sale process. Most agents just want your listing and fall short when it comes to knowledge and expertise.

We used Sandy Van for our short sale and I would highly suggest her to anyone looking to do the same. She treated our sale as if it were her own and paid extra attention to all the little details that some others may have missed including coordinating site inspections, paperwork, utility people - and had our hot water heater replaced so the house would pass final inspection. Our foreclosure sale date was just days away and Sandy worked around the clock to ensure that our property would not be foreclosed on. She also negotiated our out-of-pocket expenses to settle with our creditors and provided sound advice throughout the entire process. She really went the extra mile to make sure this was done right.

Trying to find a house on a short time schedule and while you're super busy at work is never fun. That's why it was so nice to have a realtor who was available day and night to assist in the search. Sandy must have taken me out a half dozen times, scouring Las Vegas for the perfect home for me. While ultimately I had to leave for Afghanistan before settling on a house, I will definitely use Sandy once I get back to Vegas. Jeremy R

Her sole intention for her client is always what is in their best interest, which is reassuring and also rare in today?s market.

I wanted to commend Sandy Van for the wonderful job she is doing in helping me sell my home. She tirelessly makes herself available to market the home and also to deal with the bank repeatedly because it's short sale. She's very positive and gives 110%, even when our buyer backed out and we had to put the home back on the market. Attention to detail, ability to act quickly, understanding the market and personal attention is what she provides. She also provides much guidance and insight to sell the house and we even became friends! She's a professional and it's a great experience working with her. Many, many thanks and I highly recommend her! SOPHIA L Less ... More
