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.

    Yvette is the absolute best. She is so unbelievably kind and knowledgeable, we knew we were in excellent hands in our search for a Wintergreen home. At no time did we ever feel pressured to make a deal, but instead knew we had found a trusted friend and partner who would guide but not steer. Her communication and candid advice throughout and even after closing have been Ultimately, with Yvette’s fantastic advice and guidance, we were able to land the perfect home and beat out other offers. We feel so lucky to have found Yvette and you will too!

    My wife and I worked with Yvette Stafford (and John McKeithen) for about three years as we searched for a retirement home in Nellysford. Both are good agents that we highly recommend. The remainder of this review is about our experience working with Yvette.Yvette is very knowledgable of the local real estate market and market dynamics. She seems to have an excellent rapport with her colleagues at Nest Realty and other agencies (e.g., Wintergreen, etc.), which we found helpful during our search. More important to us, however, is that Yvette is practical and down to earth.During our search, Yvette proved to be very flexible, typically finding time to show us new listings within in a day or two. When asked, she actively engaged in making an initial evaluation of the property she was showing, sometimes pointing out important details that we might have missed. She was good at following up with answers to questions that arose while looking at different properties and providing us with up to date data on the local real estate sales. Yvette is consistently patient and understanding; qualities that became clear when we had a purchase contract that did not workout. She is well connected with service providers and other businesses in the community that are important to buyers. For example, when we had a question about a potential, and unusual, structural issue with one house, Yvette, on short notice, arranged for a well respected contractor to assess the structure. While the contractor gave us his opinion, he also sent pictures to an engineer who responded within minutes. Yvette seems to regard this type of attention to a customers as an almost routine and important part of her profession.Like any real estate agent, Yvette is in business to list and sell houses. But she also understands that when representing a buyer, she is working with “people” making serious decisions about finding a home. In our case, she quickly understood that even in a hot market some buyers need time and space to carefully consider a potential purchase.We enjoyed working with Yvette! Conversations with her and her actions make it clear that she is intelligent and enlightened; and, as much as we respect those qualities, we greatly appreciate her “down to earth” style.

    Yvette is professional and reliable. She is extremely responsive and takes time to listen to your needs and wants. Yvette has helped me with 3 real estate transactions, and I couldn't be happier.

    Yvette was the perfect agent to sell my deceased Father’s home, built in 1880. Her knowledge and appreciation of older historic houses, proved to be invaluable! Yvette made the selling process so easy and not stressful. Thanks to Yvette Stafford and Mountain Area Nest Realty!Sincerely,Kathleen Young

    We knew we wanted someone local to handle the sale of our home and were thankful we found Yvette. Her expertise in real estate helped us from beginning to end. She was responsive to every request. She offered tips on how to stage, coordinated with a professional photographer to showcase our home, and encouraged us every step of the journey. Once it was listed, we received immediate interests and showings were scheduled. We had multiple offers and were able to sign a contract within days of our listing. It was a very smooth process, and we have Yvette to thank! She made sure to keep us apprised of every detail throughout the process. We are very thankful for Yvette's professionalism, compassion, and attention to detail. We highly recommend Yvette!

    Yvette was an amazing realtor and made the experience of buying our first condo as smooth as can be! We purchased the condo remotely but it still felt like we were there every step of the way. She was always readily available, drove to the unit to provide a walk-through video, and even set us up with other professionals to help us on our venture. She was knowledgeable about the market and housing prices. We even purchased the condo for under the appraisal price, crazy in this market! I would hesitate to use Yvette again and will recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in her area!Thanks Yvette!

    Yvette went over and beyond helping us find our mountain home to make memories with our boys! Whatever we needed, she was on it and fast. No matter what the questions were, she found the answers. It was a tough market and she knew just what to do without breaking our bank and securing our offer. She was able to give us reliable contractor references so that we can put the love into our new home that it needs. Yvette is not just a realtor but a friend that is there for you. You can tell she is in love with the area and truly cares about helping people find their dream home.

She worked tirelessly to help us find the right property and then push a deal across the finish line. You cannot go wrong with Yvette.

    Yvette was a knowledgable and extremely helpful realtor for the sale of my 26 acres of vacant land in Virginia. With her help we fetched more $$ than I even thought the property was worth.
