Licensed for over a decade; she has built a solid foundation of trusting relationships with homeowners, renters, buyers and sellers. Through her innate talents Vanessa has created lasting bonds and a forever expanding network of people in multiple facets of the community.
Vanessa was raised in part by her grandmother, a community activist and founding member of the 1st Tri-Block Association. Through her, a strong sense of responsibility and commitment to community was instilled. From an early age, Vanessa gained a deep familiarity with Brownstone Brooklyn and it’s inhabitants, whom she feels, form the heart and soul of our local neighborhoods.
In 2005 Vanessa opened Twyford Real Estate to offer her neighbors and clients personalized care and undivided attention. Previously a top selling agent for a large company, Vanessa preferred a more intimate approach where she could carefully assess the needs of each client individually. To Vanessa, real estate involves human emotion and unique circumstances. She understands that it is not merely a transaction—it’s about the people.
Vanessa’s genuine and honest approach continues to be a breath of fresh air to the industry.
