Get to Know Tanya Van Blake-Coleman

Virgin Islands Real Estate is my Life.

As a strong believer in continuing education and self improvement, within the first year of my practice in the USVI, I attained my GRI designation. Shortly thereafter I attended NAR's training for Professional Standards.

Starting my career in real estate with Re/Max in St. Thomas, I maintained a production rate that established me as a consistent member of the President's Club from 2005 through 2009.

In January of 2008 I obtained my Broker's license and opened my own brokerage firm in February of 2010. Van Blake-Coleman Realty offers both buyer's and seller's representation.

Constantly staying abreast of trend and changes,  more recently I completed my e-Pro certification which is about the application of technology to real estate.  Towards the end of 2013, I attained the designation of a Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) expanding my focus on real estate to a global level.

 I achieved the Certified Residential Specialist  (CRS) designation.

I served on the Professional Standard and the Grievance Committees, locally. I have been an active member of the St. Thomas Board of Realtors and  served  as the President for two years and President of the Virgin Islands Territorial Association of Realtors for two years as well.  As a state level president for both 2014 and 2015,  and a National Director for the past six years, I stay informed and involved at both the local and national levels.  I currently serrve on the Housing Committee and have chair the Small Board Issues Committee for NAR in 2016.

2016 brought the honor of being named Realtor of the year for the Virgin Islands Territorial Association of Realtors,  by my peers

Growing up in a family where my father's career was with the State Department, relocation is in my blood. I have lived in various places on the mainland as well as spending my formative years in West Africa. Knowing the challenges and joys of changing locations both as a child and an adult; sensitized me to many issues like changing schools and building new networks of friends in a new area as well as the importance of maintaining old relationships.

Tanya was a God send. If not for her we would most likely not have found the perfect home. We came into St. Thomas in May with four days to look for a home. I was scheduled to start a new job the middle of July. Tanya managed to take us to a wonderful area, stayed with us through the entire process. She stepped up to solve problems that should have been handled by the selling broker ..worked with the inspector and appraiser to make sure they were on the schedule and had access to the home. There are issues with buying homes in the VI that only knowledge, experience and tenacity can resolve. If not for Tanya I'm sure the sale would have not gone through. We're in our home and we're extremely grateful to her for doing her job, doing more than her job, assisting us with every aspect from finding the home to recommending contractors and becoming a friend. She even took me shopping to find a bed when our furniture arrived and part of my bed was missing. thanks are the best realtor on the island. If anyone out there is thinking of relocating to St. Thomas....don't even consider buying a home without calling Tanya. Ann and Larry Mazur
