My sister and I hired Regina Vannicola to sell our mom’s Santa Monica condo after she passed away. Regina and her team guided us with expert advice and hands-on assistance, making a difficult time for me and my family as easy as possible. After now buying my own condo with Regina and selling my mom’s property, I can easily state that simply put, Regina knows the Santa Monica market better than anyone else in town. Her to-the-point analysis and recommendations, delivered professionally and without a lot of fluff, resulted in a streamlined process and the highest price ever in the building. In fact, she brought us a motivated cash buyer the day before we put the property on the market, who offered a great price and closed easily two weeks later. I recommend Regina highly if you are buying or selling Santa Monica real estate.
Regina did an outstanding job selling our condo in Santa Monica! Her marketing, contacts and negotiating were amazing! Her team were excellent as well! Regina is very professional and I highly recommend her.
I have known Regina personally for 9 years. I always knew she would be who I would use when I was ready to buy property. She is delightfully aggressive as an agent and intimately knowledgeable about the ins and outs, of pricey, street-by-street, socially stratified Santa Monica. I was a novice to competitive bidding and the hair-pulling minutiae of closing escrow with outstanding work that needed to be bid on. She walked me through the slew of paperwork and sent me on my way with a list of vetted contractors to finish up with after my amazing two week escrow closed. I could not recommend her grace, her wonderful sense of humor and her expertise more highly.
Super marketing profile with a broad reach, listing and offer within a few days. Bottom line, will be likely to work with Regina again in the future.
I’ve never been one to think real estate agents are ever worth what they end up making on every sale but….wow…did Regina change my perspective on that. She started working for us a year before we put our place on the market. She walked through our apartment 3 or 4 times to help decide what updates were worth our making. Once she helped us decide to update the kitchen, get new appliances, paint bathrooms, and several other fixes, she took complete responsibility for getting them done. She got the appliance guys to come and measure the kitchen for appliances and then install them. She brought in the contractor to turn our drab kitchen into the apartment’s showpiece. She then worked with the stagers to make last minute adjustments to make sure everything was perfect. Once the unit went on the market, she hosted an open house that got us multiple offers well over asking. Within 3 days, we had chosen a buyer and two weeks later we closed. In the two weeks between the offer and the close, Regina was just amazing. She was on top of everything, making sure we had everything signed in time, making sure we understood the ramifications of each move, and making sure nothing would get in the way of the deal closing. This involved her making multiple trips to the unit and dozens of phone calls. She is so smart and I can’t imagine anybody working harder than she did for us. Even if our townhouse didn’t sell for almost $100k over asking, we would’ve been thrilled with everything Regina did for us. And the cool thing is that we now consider her a really good friend.
