Testimonials for Yolanda Hoversten
"Yolanda is a true professional! She is by far the best real estate agent. With only two days she found me the perfect home and made buying a home very enjoyable. She is very attentive and is there for her clients. If I could give an award to her I would. I recommend Yolanda as the best real estate agent in the area"
"I needed someone not only to sell my house but to help me find and arrange good contractors to fix up the house and to stage it.
And since I lived a 1000 miles away I needed a lot of feedback.
I actually found Yolanda by using Yelp. It was definitely my day because Yolanda far exceeded all my expectations. She treated my property as though it were her own. I needed a lot of help and she was right there for me every step of the way.
Yolanda negotiated lower contractor costs and shopped around for good deals on materials. And she always forwarded detailed receipts without me having to ask for them.
I relied on Yolanda like a close friend and she always showed the highest integrity.
The house sold when others were unable to sell their similar properties.
I highly recommend her as a realtor!"
"Yolanda is a dream realtor! We found a perfect home all the way from Alaska - she's fantastic!"

"Yolanda (and Scott) did a great job on our sale from beginning to end. From helping with minor upgrades, to staging, to covering appointments with service providers and inspectors she was there with a smile and positive approach. I would not hesitate to work with her again if the need arises, and we'll definitely recommend her to anyone needing assistance with a sale or purchase. Thanks Yoli !!!!"

"It is my sincere pleasure to recommend Yolanda. My wife, Nancy, and I bought our home in 2008, after Yoli, tirelessly, showed us countless homes, researched candidate homes and provided valuable advisement to help us in our home search and escrow related decisions. This in itself, was valuable to Nancy's and my successful acquisition of the best home for us. I believe that the most important quality of Yoli is her personal attention and caring approach. This not only applied to our search and purchase, but, has continued to this day. Yoli have "been there" for Nancy and me, in a multitude of ways, ever since our 2008 introduction. Thank you for being there for us Yoli."
