Welcome Home!

Buying or selling a home, like any major transition in life, goes smoother and causes less anxiety when you have a qualified guide who knows the way, and knows how to fight for you.  Vivienne is the guide you want.  She will be the first to tell you that she is not the right agent for every person, but for those she chooses to work with, there is no better REALTOR®. Period.

Lets get Started!

Buyers:

Search For Homes

As a buyer, you want to SEE houses. On-line listings can only do so much, you need to be IN a space. You want someone to explain the process and the dizzying array of paperwork, the terms, you want someone who will point out the things other agents try to hide, you want someone who will listen to you and help you understand what you need, and what you want. You want someone who will negotiate, and win for you. You want Vivienne.

Sellers:

Find the Value of MY House

As a seller, you want to move on to the next stage of life. You want to see a SOLD sign on your house. You want a REALTOR® who will protect your interests, while getting you the best possible price for your home. You want someone who will show you how to make your house look as attractive as possible to buyers. You want a POWERFUL negotiator who doesn’t leave money on the table the way other agents do. You want Vivienne.

She got us our house on the first day it came on the market – for far below market value!

Vivienne sets the bar for service and performance very high.  We interviewed several other realtors before settling on her, and we made a deliberate, careful, well informed decision.  She was able to get us showings in houses that other realtors could not.  She found us the house we ultimately bought on the first day it came on the market - for a value far below market value - and used a clever negotiation strategy to get us the house before a bidding war started.  She truly is anything but ordinary, and we are thrilled with the service she provided us.

Anything but ordinary!

When I was looking for someone to sell my home I was looking for someone who would work for ME, not 300 other clients, and not as a part of a team of people I don’t know.  I was looking for someone who would do things differently, better, and not follow the cookie-cutter approach, but most of all I was looking for someone who would do an amazing job and follow through on what she says she will do.  I could not be happier with my choice.  Vivienne really has been attentive to me and my home, and delivered much more than I expected!

Out of the 4-5 realtors I have worked with, Vivienne is without a doubt the best.

Out of the 4-5 realtors I have worked with, Vivienne is without a doubt the best.  She pays attention to me, what I tell her I want, and finds me properties that match those criteria without wasting my time with a bunch of houses I have no interest in.  She is the first realtor I have met who provides this level of service.

It has been significantly easier and less stressful to have Vivienne working on my behalf. I trust her great attention to detail and clear passion for finding a property that actually fits my needs without tons of back and forth from me, or having to sift through countless listings on my own.

Vivienne is the most professional and skilled realtor we found, she got us a great deal!

We asked Vivienne to help us find our first home because she is the most professional and skilled realtor we found, and we are thrilled with the service and professionalism she brought to the table, we felt completely comfortable with her, and she got us a great deal!

Vivienne listened carefully to both what we said and what we did not say in order to help us find the perfect home. As first-time home buyers, we really appreciate the time Vivienne took to explain the process to us and help get answers to our questions.

Why Vivienne?

Anything but Ordinary™ isn’t just a slogan – it is at the core of how Vivienne does business.  While most REALTORS®  are still doing business the same way it has been done since the 1980’s, there are at least 3 things that set Vivienne apart.

  1. Negotiation.  Vivienne started her academic study of negotiation as an undergraduate psychology major in the 1990’s.  She holds 2 negotiation designations, both the Certified Negotiation Expert, and Real Estate Negotiation Expert, and she continues to keep her skills sharp practicing with friends and reading Negotiation Journal from Harvard University.
  2. Vivienne isn’t intrested in your commission.  What she wants, is your referal.  She wants you to have such a great experiance working with her that you are eager to recomend her to your friends.
  3. Vivienne knows all too well that bigotry is a real thing, and that she does not get the luxury of mistakes that ordinary REALTORS®  do.

If you want an ordinary REALTOR®, she will be happy to recommend someone less capeable.
