Fun Facts About Me

First real estate purchase?

Three acres overlooking the White River in the Arkansas Ozarks. It was the smoothest real estate deal I've ever done!

Dogs or cats?

Both, but any cat in our house must identify as a dog. Ashy showed up one day and is now BFFs with Maple, our redbone.

Complicated coffee?

Never. Drip with a hint of heavy cream.

Hardest thing you've ever done?

1. Surviving Thomas Jefferson High School for Science & Technology, an academically intense high school in Fairfax. 2. Completing the original GORUCK Challenge. 3. My first and last trail marathon.

Whiskey ... ?

Usually neet, sometimes over ice. Actively avoid Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

Town or Country?

Both. I need my urban fix but there's nothing like coming home over Brent's Gap and seeing those Blue Ridge mountains.

    I worked closely with Yvette to find and close on a property with very specific parameters tied to a very specific vision. Yvette was exceptional in spending the time and energy to really understand what I was looking for and help me find it. She stands apart from most other realtors in her desire to truly understand her client's goals and patient application of skills and knowledge to get them there. She's a true Blue Ridge devotee, and her knowledge of the Central Virginia region was extremely valuable in understanding various properties and market dynamics. She's intelligent, patient and methodical - a rare and fortunate find in a real estate partner.Finding a realtor who can and will engage unique buyer situations is challenging... if you're that "special buyer", I strongly recommend spending some time with Yvette to learn about her talents first-hand.

    Yvette is a diligent and conscientious realtor who I would trust with any of my real estate purchases or sales. Her knowledge of Wintergreen and the surrounding areas is invaluable; I’d never want to use someone who is not as embedded in the community as she is. She is always quick to respond, quick to view properties for her clients and even record the visits, so clients completing the process remotely can do so with confidence in their decisions. Yvette catches potential issues and points them out during home tours, rather than avoiding them and focusing on the potential sale. On top of all her positive traits and accomplishments as a realtor, she happens to simply be a good person who is quick witted and a pleasure to be around. I highly recommend Yvette for all your real estate needs!

    Yvette was great to work with. She was extremely responsive in a tight market, and negotiated a great deal for us. She was on top of the process all the way through settlement, keeping me in the loop on all the steps along the way. I highly recommend her!

    Yvette, from Day 1, exceeded all my expectations in helping us secure a tract of local land. She kept us informed with what was ahead and directed the attorney for the closing regarding anything that he needed to know. She was the most prompt professional person that I may have ever worked with. We couldn't have done it without Yvette. I would highly recommend her for any realty need.

    Yvette is the one- in- a- million kind of realtor who blows you away with her ability to fulfill all the roles needed to purchase a house. Her knowledge about real estate is immense and her personality makes working with her a pleasure.Just recently Yvette helped us to find a house in Virginia while we were living in New Jersey. We were two couples looking to purchase a house together. Each of the 4 of us had special wishes for our new house and one of us needed some handicap accessible features. We were picky and made that known. After spending time with us for a weekend and showing us multiple homes she got what we needed and wanted in our next house. Her knowledge about neighborhoods was pretty far flung as we looked within Charlottesville proper and then to many areas surrounding it. She was willing to be our eyes and ears for many open houses and house inquiries when we could not be in Virginia, and she routinely jumped onto new house lisitings as they came on the market. With demand high and supply low, Yvette appreciated the necessity of good timing. She is a person of her word in what she offers to do and how she shows up. When it came time to make offers on a house she was detail oriented and very protective of our interests. She educated us on aspects of the process about which we were unsure. At every stage of the process she was prompt and well-timed in makng appointments and delivering paperwork. Then once we found our house the number of local people she connected us to was also far reaching; she made very quick recommendations for cable, plumbing, and flooring contractors. Her communication skills are excellent, she is hands on and she is obviously well known and well regarded in the community. All in all we are very grateful and feel extremely fortunate to have had Yvette as our realtor.

    Yvette was great working with us to sell our land. She was persistent and upbeat and helped us through all the steps of the process. Yvette knows the Nellysford area in detail, she was great to work with.

    Yvette was so helpful getting us ready to list the property and during the entire process of finding a buyer and navigating the closing. I don't know how we would have sold our house without her!

    We came to Yvette with a wild idea- we wanted to buy a old storefront that wasn't for sale. She was up for the adventure and made it happen, she got us into contract! She also supported us when it became clear that we needed to back out of that deal and helped us to do that. She stuck with us and kept looking and it wasn't long before she found us the right place, got us in there as one of the first to see it and then guided us through the whole process. I highly recommend Yvette Stafford.

    Yvette is definitely the person you want to find you a house and close on it regardless how difficult the road to closing is. Accommodate the specific requirements we had was a tall task and, on top of that, deal with the seller who in this case was more than difficult. She knows more about the ins and outs of construction materials than you want to know.So, if you are looking for a realtor, look no further than to Yvette!
