"You were absolutely amazing - from start to finish……wish I could clone you and send you to my friends everywhere that want to sell or buy a house.  Not only did you get us top dollar for sale but you made it easy and convenient, even taking care of unpleasant tasks for this 86 year old landlord, (meeting me in parking lots so that I did not have to drive to you to sign paperwork and telling our long time tenants that the house was going to be sold). Vivien - you are the best and I would recommend you anyone going through the complicate procedure of selling their property.

-Jan Matthews

Vivien actually saved us over 40k in the purchase price of our home.  I was prepared to offer more money for our home, however she felt it would be in my best interest if I lowered my offer.   Well she was right; the sellers accepted my counter offer at the exact amount she suggested.  I think many real estate agents would not propose this to their clients in fear of potentially losing out on a sale.

Vivien has definitely been the most knowledgeable, hard-working, and pleasant real estate agent that I have met.

We had a fantastic experience with Vivien as our agent.  She was very professional and made the buying experience simple and fun.  Vivien was very knowledgeable about the market as a whole.  She listened to our (often crazy) priorities in choosing a home.  She was able to accommodate our hectic schedule and arranged for us to see a variety of properties.  I would definitely work with Vivien again for buying or selling my next property.
