We were lucky to have met Vanessa through a mutual friend. It?s a fast market right now and being that we were moving from the Bay Area down to San Diego, we needed someone who knew the area well and had experience facilitating a longer distance buy. Right out of the gate Vanessa was responsive and punctual. She listened to our needs and appropriately managed our expectations. Since this was a long distance move, Vanessa utilized video tours that she recorded and loaded to YouTube. In the end, this is actually how we found our home. The small touches were also nice e.g., bound color listing for the homes we saw in person, stuffed teddy bear she gave to my son, and the proprietary listing software we had access to during our search. Regardless of the niceties, her professionalism and drive is what made the sale happen. In this market you want someone like Vanessa in your corner. Less ... More

I really do not know how to express my deep appreciation for all the work and extra effort that Vanessa Charfen put into selling a Condo that we had in San Diego. Unfortunately, my son was killed in a motorcycle accident and a Executor of his estate, I had to sell the property. I was fortunate to meet my son?s neighbor, Larry Murry, who used to work for Team Aguilar Realty who recommended Vanessa. It was ironic because Vanessa was the agent who originally sold the property to my son. Vanessa pointed out that there were some items that needed to be fixed and/or installed in the Condo before it could be sold. Since I lived about 150 miles from the property, Vanessa took it upon herself to make the arrangements for all the work to be completed in a timely manner. This effort involved contacting at least 2 contractors, negotiating the contract and overseeing that the work was complete. She not only save me several hundred dollars on the work but several trips down to San Diego. Although we had a professional appraiser come in to appraise the Condo, it was very apparent that Vanessa knew more about the area and the value of the property than the appraiser. Vanessa suggested that we try to sell the Condo for almost $30,000.00 more than the appraiser had estimated the value. To make a long story short, we sold the Condo very quickly at the price Vanessa had suggested. I do not think that there are many realtors around who all the way through the preparation and sale of the Condo would have been as understanding, courteous, professional, and have the excellent knowledge of the real estate market in the area like Vanessa. I really do not know what we would have done without Vanessa?s professional help with the sale. Three cheers?no, make it 4 cheers for Vanessa. Less ... More

Simply put, Vanessa is a fantastic real estate agent! My husband and I bought our first home last year, and Vanessa was wonderful throughout the entire process! She was incredibly knowledgeable, always cheerful and positive, and we always felt that she truly had our best interest at heart. For that, we were truly grateful. We have been in our home for a year now, and we couldn't be happier! Whenever a friend or family member mentions moving, the first thing I ask them is if they need a recommendation for a real estate agent! We had such a positive experience, we would absolutely contact Vanessa again if we are ever looking to buy/sell in the future. Less ... More

Vanessa Charfen is the best realtor in San Diego! We?ve been working with her for over four years, and in that time she?s helped us buy and sell several properties. Vanessa is honest, hard-working, and very knowledgeable of the real-estate business at all levels. I?ve recommended her to multiple friends interested in properties, and they have had similar great experiences working with her. They have since recommended her to their friends. We will never use anyone else- Vanessa is as good as it gets! Less ... More

Vanessa served as my Realtor on the purchase of my home as well as two investment properties. She was initially referred to me by a friend, and I'm extremely pleased that she was. Whether she was representing me as the seller or buyer, Vanessa demonstrated courtesy, professionalism, and excellent knowledge of the real estate market. Agent accessibility is essential in real estate transactions. Vanessa was always available to meet with me to answer questions or discuss any concerns I had regarding various properties. The next time I buy or sell real estate, Vanessa is the Agent I will be contacting! Less ... More

I have had the pleasure to work with Vanessa for several years, and to experience first hand her professionalism, expertise, kindness and never ending enthusiasm. What makes Vanessa a one of a kind agent, is the combination of her extensive knowlege, her desire to please her clients, and her positive attitude. My husband and I moved out of state, and Vanessa is the only agent my neurotic self trusted to handle the sale of our house. As I expected, she was fantastic. She not only got us the best possible price, but she made a very emotionally charged transaction very easy and painless. Anybody can sell you a house, but Vanessa will help you find YOUR house.

Helped me buy and sell homes
Vanessa had a listing that I was interested in purchasing, but it had just gone into escrow. Like many agents, she asked what I was looking for and offered to get information on prospective properties to me for my review. However one thing was different ...she actually did it!! And ultimately she located the perfect property for my needs. Because of my experience with her as my agent in buying a property, I subsequently listed a home with her for sale. In both cases, Vanessa was the ultimate professional. She provided information in a timely manner, gave advice when appropriate, followed up assiduously, and represented me in all negotiations with care and precision. I also found her assessment of market conditions to be absolutely on point. Real Estate transactions are the largest and most important financial decisions that I make. I trust Vanessa to represent me in any of my negotiations, and to help me make the best choices for my needs. She stands out from the rest! Less ... More

Vanessa listed our condo in Mission Valley in October of 2013. We had multiple offers within 48 hours and closed less than a month later at a price we never dreamed possible. Vanessa went above and beyond in this transaction and she is not only a true real estate professional, but a pleasure to work with on every level.

Vanessa Charfen came highly recommended to me by a friend, and I?m so glad I had the chance to work with her. She is a one of a kind realtor. She will give her all to make sure you get a house you love at a price you are comfortable with. As a first time homebuyer, Vanessa walked me through the process and explained everything to me in a way that made me feel confident in all that I was doing. My home inspector and lender both commented that Vanessa is a unique realtor in that she goes well above and beyond her job description. She is knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and patient. There is not a doubt in my mind that when it?s time for me to buy and sell again, Vanessa will be the first person I call! Less ... More
