DESIGNING ME

vinnicrop2

I come by this crazy double career naturally. As a child of both a REALTOR® (40 years and going) and a custom home builder, I spent my childhood at open houses and construction sites. I learned a very long time ago that there is no perfect home, there is only the perfect home for you. Design is my primary passion and informs and inspires many of my endeavors as a Real Estate professional. Good interior designers are great problem solvers, they can generally walk in a room and see the potential. For me, a room just expands in my head, walls disappear and appear based on what my client is telling me they need. The real estate part of my brain takes over when I can tell my client needs more than their home or resell market can bear.

I deal with both buyers and sellers,  finding solutions to problems. For my sellers I am able to offer my services as a color specialist and interior designer to ready your home for a quick sale.  For my buyers I offer my insight into the potential of homes in today’s volatile market and maybe finding that “hidden treasure” that other buyers may not be able to see all within your budget.  Investors often look to me to find that elusive investment property.

It is my responsibility to provide my clients with the highest level of service that is backed by years of education and experience making the process of renovating your current home, or buying/selling a home as stress free and easy as possible.  I began Brown & Associates because I believe that Real Estate should be a concierge business.  Let me handle finding handymen, picking paints for refreshing a home, meeting contractors, staging etc.  My team is here to make a stressful process as stress free as possible.

Check out my blog to gain helpful tips on knowing the right time to sell, how to ready your home for the market, picking paint colors, and finding the perfect home for you and your family with the future in mind.

In today’s crazy market it is more important than ever to have the expertise of a marketing professional that can give your home that extra something that will gain you top dollar. As a buyer it is important that you have a professional on your side that can not only see the investment potential in a property but one that can negotiate to get you your dream home within your budget.

Testimonials

“Vinni helped us transform our outdated master bathroom into a spa-like retreat! She totally understood what we wanted and was able to get us the best price in town. Our project did encounter some minor problems ( which remodel project doesn’t?) but Vinni and her team were able to resolve them in a timely fashion and kept us informed throughout the process with emails and text messages. We truly appreciate her design, enthusiasm and willingness to guide us through this project! The result is stunning and totally worthy it!”

“Vinni Brown is exactly the realtor I was searching for to buy a new residence and sell my current home. As a former realtor in the 1980s and a current financial advisor, I am familiar with real estate transactions. I was seeking someone who was knowledgeable, diligent, and would put together a marketing plan that was specific to my home, neighborhood and considered the current state of the real estate market and competition from multiple listings on the same street. Vinni came up with the perfect approach, accurate list price, minimal cost to prepare the home for showings and staged the property perfectly – it sold on the first weekend.

Vinni is not only a realtor, but also an accomplished interior designer. She can see current residence and future home in ways that I simply can’t see. As a business owner and father of two children, I didn’t have the time or experience in decorating or interior design. Simply stated, Vinnie will deliver a professional residential property and design experience.”

“LONG OVERDUE! I want to thank my friend and realtor Vinni Brown for her complete and total dedication and commitment to the selling of my home and the follow through when the buyer wanted to sue us. You want and need a realtor who has your back along with the management of her company Coldwell Banker Realty. Stood by me even through the mediation! I recommend her 100%. If you are selling or buying you will want her to represent you! Please keep her in mind and refer her to all your friends. I promise you won’t be disappointed!”
