Assisting Agent, Buyers & Sellers
Chris was hand picked by Jeff for his personality, values and intellect. You can teach anyone a “skill” but you can’t teach attitude. You can’t teach a positive energy and a desire to be the best. Chris has all of these qualities in spades. The cornerstone of The Village Guru is integrity – and we don’t say that lightly. In this industry, it is sorely lacking, and Chris is a perfect compliment to the Village Guru principles of protecting our clients needs & interests above all else.
Chris is analytical, a great communicator, and not afraid to ask questions. He never assumes anything about anyone, he takes the time to get to know you and what’s important to you. He is a dedicated professional whom you can count on as part of your buying or selling team.
The Village Guru
Project Manager, Design & Staging
Stephanie runs her own Staging & Decor Business, Style By Stephanie, and also manages all things design for The Village Guru Listings. After a home is sold, most of our clients admit they were really excited about working with a designer, but were at first anxious about how it would work. Stephanie gives every client clear and reasonable plan to ensure each client is confident in the process. Often, clients are so pleased that they hire her for their new home as well. Design is her passion, and it shows.
Before we found Fernando, we were changing contractors faster than you change your toilet paper roll. Sloppy work, poor communication, scheduling surprises; these are all too common in the construction industry. With Fernando, he is a dedicated professional who promises nothing he can’t deliver. He provides accurate quotes, reasonable timelines, and quality work. He is the reason you can be confident in any project you want to tackle in your home.
Digital & Print Media Listing Services
HouseMaxx offers the best quality photos and videos in the industry . Not only because of their equipment, but due to the artistic eye of their creative staff. They take the time to make sure every shot is just right, to show off your home in the best possible light. Many photos on MLS show that little effort or thought was put into the media products, and that’s a shame. With HouseMaxx, every home owner gets the best images of their home.
Mortgage Broker, Mortgage Alliance
You have the option of working with a bank or a Mortgage Broker when getting a mortgage for your home. We have contact with the banks, but if you want to work with a Broker, Angelo is highly skilled and proactive. He has saved many purchases, when clients go elsewhere and run into problems, and then they come to Angelo and he gets the job done. I get no financial payment when I send my clients to Angelo: I refer to him because I can count on him to communicate properly and get my clients the best terms possible.
Barrister, Solicitor & Notary Public
Real Estate & Corporate Law
If you don’t already have a lawyer you love working with, I strongly suggest that all of my clients work with Ben. I get no financial payment by referring to Ben, I send my clients to Ben because he is a great communicator and one of the best to work with. On the chance that it’s your deal that starts going sideways because of the other party, you will be thankful you have a lawyer who is aggressive, advocates for you, and takes no s*#t from the other lawyer. Having Ben on our team ensures a smoother transaction and peace of mind.
