Dear Mr. Stanley,
I wanted to take a long moment to convey how remarkably happy I have been throughout the last six-plus months of doing business with Stanley Real Estate and Investment and most notably the work done with and by Tony and Tasha Vruvides.
I have served as Executor of the estate of my late father since his passing in October of 2018. Included in the estate, indeed at the core of it, was a home in Granite Bay. I live in coastal Massachusetts and have owned only one house in my life. I live in that house and have done so for more than 35 years. My experience in selling a house is stunningly limited and yet I found myself being asked to sell a house three thousand miles away and representing not only my interests but those of two siblings who actually live in the Sacramento area. I knew I would need help, informed answers to endless questions and more than a little personal attention.
And, I knew this was going to be a long, complicated process. I asked several people for recommendations and the names of Tony and Tasha Vruvides came up more than once. I looked them up and did due diligence on both the Vruvides and that of the Stanley firm.
Stanley Real Estate and Investment seemed, and turned out to be, a “right sized” and thoughtfully built company with extensive experience in all the places I needed experience. The firm is not too small to have a specialized office staff capable of a wide range of tasking; nor, so large for me to be buried under the weight of too many clients with too few folks holding up that weight. The size and capacity of Stanley Real Estate and Investment turned out to be ideally suited. Congratulations on building such a strong, client-focused firm.
But, I must say the key reason for this letter is to communicate how please I have been with the work and support of Tony and Tasha Vruvides. My relationship with them spanned six months and included the need to sort a remarkably complicated and unanticipated set of issues. There was one constant through those six months . . . Tony and Tasha Vruvides had my back. Tony, in particular was a force of nature helping me grapple with the range of roles to which I needed to respond. If there was an issue that was possible it became an issue in reality. Tony, has been an absolute pillar of support. He was always available, always positive and always went well beyond what anyone should expect. He says he and Tasha are “old school” . . . they place service to client first and foremost – even when the client is thousands of miles away and three time zones distant. I think we did more business before the sun was up in California than we did during normal office hours
In short, I cannot be happier with work that Tony and Tasha Vruvides did on my behalf. To say that they went beyond what you should expect would be an understatement beyond reason. And, in the end, the house sold on the weekend of the Open House. Through these months, I made new friends and gained an abiding respect for a what gifted and determined team of real estate folk can bring to the challenges of selling a home.
With gratitude,Mr. Bob Bowen - 8707 Pendleton, Granite Bay
