What people are saying about the team at GPS….

Teamwork makes the Dreamwork!

Sheridan Phillip Reilly

“Working with Global Property Systems was a pleasure from start to finish. From our initial discussions about marketing strategy to the final closing of the transaction, Vanessa and her team were responsive, timely, helpful and most professional. During the entire listing period and right from the start GPS provided a steady stream of qualified interested parties. Interaction with staff was always pleasant. Negotiations were straightforward and results were prompt.

On the experience of numerous real estate transactions in New York City and Westchester County, I would rank Global Property Systems as first in class and indeed almost in a class of its own.”

Vanessa was wonderful, she and her daughter Natalie were incredibly helpful throughout the process. They made a fair deal for all parties and the seller and we have remained friends as a result of their expertise! She knew everything about the surrounding properties that made the sale happen.

Matthew Dear

Vanessa listed our house, and had two offers for us after the first two showings. She essentially had our property sold less than a week after it was put on the market. She was very attentive before the showings, creating a beautiful website and having 5-star photos taken of the property. I would recommend Vanessa if you are seeking a hands-on and direct realtor.

Vince.obrien

Vanessa thinks creatively, understood our property, and marketed very aggressively. Vanessa found our buyer when other agents had failed to do so by understanding the NYC and international buyer and by marketing to them broadly.

The team at GPS are both professional and personable. Their ability to showcase our house with your photographic abilities I think attributed to the immediate interest in our home from the first day it was put on the net… 6-8 showings per day and selling in less than a week above listing price was not what we expected, in fact we had to scramble to make it happen as it all happened so fast, we hardly had time to think! We called you because you could sell internationally and had affiliations to market and sell in other to buyer outside our immediate area. Thank You GPS it was a pleasure working with you.

I remember clearly my initial encounter with Vanessa Saunders Broker Owner of GPS Real Estate. I had responded to an ad in the mail, because I felt that I had a unique property listing that would lend itself well to the exposure to the GLOBAL real estate market. From comparing various real estate agencies, I quickly learned that only Vanessa had the credentials to market my property globally. When I met Vanessa, I was impressed by her tremendous marketing skills and her “can-do” attitude. The website she constructed was phenomenal! Vanessa’s confidence, hard work, and personal touch enabled me to put my mind at ease during the process of selling our home. I knew that she had tailored just the right approach to my particular situation, and I knew that I could count on her experience, integrity, and hard work. Vanessa, thank you for never let me down and for exceeding even my greatest expectations!

Sincerely,
Denise Vilotijevic

I would like to commend Milton Katcher on his recent excellent “catch” for me! Through Milton’s patience and fine advice and guidance, I was able to secure a very sought-after rental property. From the initial shoving of this property to handing me the keys, Milton achieved that fine balance between professionalism and genuine concern as he guided me every step of the way. His calm in steering the ship was indispensible in my securing this rental property. Thank you, Milton, for your great advice, your provision of just the right amount of guidance, and for landing me this beautiful rental property!

Sincerely,
Denise Vilotijevic

When you’re ready to sell your home, call Vanessa Saunders at GPS Realt Estate; do not waste your time with any other Realtor. I put my house on the market the weekend after Labor Day and Vanessa had me a solid offer on the house within a week and half; the closing was 3 months later. Many Realtor’s will tell you what you want to hear just to get your listing and then your house will end up sitting on the market for many months but that won’t happen with Vanessa. Vanessa is a master at her craft and a true professional and does not like to waste any time; she will have your house sold and you on to the next chapter of your life in record time.

Signed,
Another Happy Satisfied Customer

“We’ve sold two houses with Vanessa and could not have imagined better outcomes. Vanessa accurately read the market in both cases and gave us sound advice on the marketing and pricing of our homes. Consequently, we sold our houses in less than the average time on market and were very pleased with the selling prices. Vanessa is positive, professional and determined; she balances enthusiasm and realism. We felt she truly had our best interests at heart, which made a significant difference in both the business and the personal aspects of our real estate transactions.” AJ Grey Upper Grandview & Piermont

Ms Saunders, who is in a league of her own, is by far the best residential broker we have ever met. She carefully listens to her clients and enthusiastically responds to every question, concern or new idea. Whereas most brokers only focus on the transaction- any transaction- she makes a sincere effort to understand the needs and aspirations of her clients. She also helps her client avoid the pitfalls and traps that so often annoy clients and harm the brokerage experience. We found her market knowledge comprehensive and she kept us focused but constructively challenged our expectations with new ideas.” N Gardiner.

“Vanessa combines vision, passion and intelligence with hard work and a sense of fun which combined makes her a truly remarkable human being. I’m thrilled she combined all of her talents and put them to good use in real estate. If you haven’t met her, then make sure you do. She is a true marketing champion and easily on of the most genuine people I have met.”

Vanessa creates impressive marketing tool which highlights the positive aspects of the property as well as of the town where the property is located which provides clients a clear idea of their future home and hometown. A personalized web site is a very powerful tool to entice prospective home buyers. She always makes herself available for any question, no matter how trivial it may be. She’s there to hold your hands in every step of the way. In short, she provides a very personalized service.

Janice Rosen – Airmont

After having our house in Airmont (20 Stage St) on the market with two different agents for nearly TWO years, Vanessa Saunders met with us, marketed and listed our home and sold it for FULL asking price within 48 hours. She has the magic. Once you have worked with Vanessa, you will never settle for less. She has the marketing genius that we all need when we look for a Realtor.

Dear Vanessa: I kept forgetting about this, which is really not fair considering how happy we are @ 43 Franklin. 1 year after we decided to buy this house, I finally put something together for you, in French and in English. Hope this will be helpful to you.

Avec des jumeaux en route, nous savions qu’il nous fallait quitter notre appartement de location à New York City pour quelque chose de plus spacieux et plus pratique. Nous avions 3 mois pour trouver une maison pour notre famille. Notre chance a été de rencontrer Vanessa. Enthousiaste et incroyablement efficace, elle a su identifier nos besoins et nous a aidé à trouver la région, puis le village, puis la maison qu’il nous fallait. Mais elle ne s’est pas arrêtée là : elle a partagé son carnet d’adresses – professionel et personnel – pour faciliter notre transition. Cela fait maintenant 8 mois que nous sommes installés dans notre maison, et nous sommes absolument convaincus que cette maison est parfaite pour nous. Merci Vanessa!”

“With twins on the way, we knew we had to leave our rental condo in NYC and find something bigger and more practical. We had 3 months to find a house for our growing family. Our luck was to meet Vanessa. Enthusiastic and incredibly efficient, she was able to quickly identify our needs and she helped us find the perfect house for us. And she did not stop there: She shared her address book – professional and personal – with us so that we immediately felt comfortable in our new neighborhood. We have been living in our house for 8 months now and we are absolutely convinced that this was the house for us. Thank you Vanessa!”

Take care, and hope to see you soon.
Isabelle

Vanessa, Heartfelt thanks for your hard work and professionalism in selling our Woods Rd, Greenwood Lake home. The Realtor who had it for a year before you were not very imaginative in their marketing, relying on Realtor.com to do all their work. Your more viral, international approach sold the home in 4 months, in a very tough market. On top of that, the people you brought will make wonderful neighbors to our dear friends next door. All in all a win-win-win…. Win! Thanks a million (or so)!

Hi Vanessa,

Just a note to say thank you for all your help and kindness in providing us with much important information on selling our home. We are just sorry that we didn’t know about you and your services at the beginning of our sale. I would imagine this would have saved us a lot of stress! Now we know about you and look forward to tapping into your experience & expertise.

Thank you again,
Nick & Laura Papazicos

I would say that she’s smart, assertive and a great marketer. She’s up front and forthright which is essential in this market. She’s knows the market and has wonderful energy about her work. She’s also very ethical which today is rare and most important is that she is not a wimp! I wasted 6 months with another agent who did nothing, and at the beginning of a down market Vanessa sold my town-home in 90 days. What I would say to a friend is, that if you want to get your home sold Vanessa will give you an honest evaluation of what you can expect to get. She has great marketing savvy and that is so important in these economic times. She’s continually adding to her education and working on her skills. She is not just a part time agent/broker; this is her career and it shows in her successes!

“Vanessa is a true professional! Her knowledge and expertise in the areas of short sales and foreclosures make her the Go-To real estate agent for distressed homeowners and real estate investors. She is not “just” a Realtor, she is an educator and a problem solver. She knows how to put together the right team to meet all of the needs of her clients. For an easy real estate closing experience, call Vanessa!”

Scott and Patti Stankevich

When Vanessa approached us, we had tried three other agents with the largest firms in the area and were quite frankly at the end of our tether. The morning she called us was coincidentally the day our previous contract had ran out. Her confidence was overwhelming and when we met her in person we knew she would do everything she could to sell our home. She started by pulling up her sleeves and helping us stage our home for “success”! It worked!! A week after listing we had it under contract having several offers we accepted the best which was above asking price in what is the worst real estate time of recent history. We can’t recommend Vanessa enough. Her upbeat, nothing is a problem attitude and relentless passion for success is refreshing, and changed our mind about Realtor’s in general. Thanks Vanessa, keep up the good work. We tell all our old friends and neighbors you are the only one to represent them when the time comes for them to sell.

I have known Vanessa for over 10 years. In that time i have done many transactions where Vanessa was either on the buy or sale side.  On every deal Vanessa steered her clients with warmth, grace and charm -she took their feelings into account and made them feel that their opinions actually mattered (a rare thing these days ) she keeps me informed when she had updates and keeps the lines of communication open between all parties.  I would recommend Vanessa to all of my clients for her hard work, diligence and caring manner.  You are lucky to have her.

Dr. & Mrs. Stuart Knapp – Formerly of Suffern NY

I was impressed w/Vanessa when we hired her as our Realtor of choice. We never expected the house to sell even in the midst of a “down” market. Much to our surprise, Vanessa delivered.  We were consistently delighted with her upbeat, yet hard driving nose to the grindstone approach.  We would say “if you want the job done right-hire Vanessa.”

Joy and Michael Gains, Piermont

When our house in New City didn’t sell after dropping the price so many times we nearly gave up, Vanessa called us and convinced us to try again. We were nothing less than amazed by the results. In one week we had more showings than the previous 12 months, plus three offers and a cash buyer from overseas! Just like she predicted. We don’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone we know that is trying to sell in this tough market. We also used her to find us our new wonderful apartment on the river. Thanks for making this happen Vanessa, because without you life would have been very different for us.

Not only does Vanessa know what she’s doing, but she makes sure everyone is having fun at the same time. Vanessa worked with us patiently to help us buy our first home, and if we ever have to leave we’ll definitely work with her again.”

Vanessa called me just in the nick of time! I was facing foreclosure and I didn’t have a clue what to do. Vanessa introduced me to an attorney and then accompanied me to court in New City to stop the proceedings. She listed my home as a short sale and sold it in less than 24 hours!! The attorney she introduced me to pushed everything through the bank. I was saved and so was my credit rating. Oh and by the way, she found me a darling rental in Piermont too! I kept my job, my friends and my life! I feel like I owe it all to you guys. Thanks for everything Vanessa and the V Team.

I have worked with Vanessa on a couple of real estate projects. She has always been very helpful and creative in getting these projects completed on time and with profit. She is very flexible in how she approaches the many decisions that need to be made during a project giving good solid advice……even if it is not what you want to hear. Vanessa has helped make me a happy owner of real estate….and I would use her again in a heartbeat.”

Roger Worhle – Upper Saddle River

I hired Vanessa to sell my Tuxedo Park home. Vanessa guided me expertly through every aspect of the sale. Her suggestions prior to listing the property were extremely valuable as was her knowledge of the market and pricing especially in the current difficult market conditions. She sold our home quickly and at a price I was thrilled with. I could not have hoped for a better experience.”

John and Carol Yaniga, formerly New City, NY, now South Carolina

“We thought we were going to lose our shirt! Having purchased a home in S. Carolina last year, we were horrified by what happened to the real estate market and when our home failed to sell we tried everything, even selling it ourselves to save money. Then we were told about The V-Team. Everything they said made sense. Their plan worked fast and we sold for more money than we were asking and were in contract in under a week!”

Kevin and Kelly Keogan – S. Nyack, NY

“We can’t fault Vanessa’s service. She sold our home in West Nyack and found us another for our growing family in S. Nyack. Great marketing, speed of light service, great negotiation skills and above all, now a trusted friend for life.”

Ronnie Swire Segal, Los Angeles, CA

“After month on the market and near desperation, Vanessa came into our lives and really made a difference to the way we were handling our sale. What a difference! In under 48 hours we had four offers and were in contract in days, and closed in 30 days. All this was accomplished while we lived in California and never met Vanessa. We hope she’ll come visit us soon.”

Tom and Josephine Mellia, West Nyack, NY

“Vanessa saved our sale and our faith in Realtors.” The GPS team came and made some amazing changes to our dated house. Within days it had 3 offers! After 2 years on the market, we moved out in less than 60 days from the day we met Vanessa. Highly recommend her and the team. Thanks and a pleasure to provide this testimonial. Good luck in all you do.

When Vanessa and her team at GPS came into our lives we had never heard of the company. So glad we decided to give them a try. They worked so hard and the results spoke for themselves. SOLD!!

 Alisha Schechter 1 year ago

WOW – finally a real estate company that thinks outside of the box. Great work, and finally we got to sell and move on with our lives.

 Calvin Oleary 1 year ago

We were destined for foreclosure as our home didn’t even sell as a short sale. Then we discovered GPS and they had us sold in no time. They looked after everything for us and even found us a great home to rent after we moved out. Now they are helping us work out our credit and save for a new home. More like family than realtors!

 Robert Upchurch 1 year ago

The team at GPS cleaned up our act and made us get realistic. The result was that we finally sold our home. If you listen to them you will sell, no doubt about it.

 Robert Frank 1 year ago

We listed with all the top agencies in the area, with the same result NADA. A neighbor told us about the new agency in town GPS and we sold in under a month! Happy to recommend them to everyone.

 Burl Booker 1 year ago

The GPS staging, photography, virtual tour and narration was excellent. Their marketing showed our home to the world and we sold to a lovely family from overseas. Thanks GPS.
