Vanessa has over 20 years of experience in the Real Estate field. Originally from Southern California, she was hugely successful at representing both buyers and sellers around the Los Angeles,Calabasas and Malibu region. She has won many awards over the years as an agent and loves helping clients find the perfect place to call home. Having moved from California to the Lake Norman area over 15 years ago, she truly understands the needs of clients looking to relocate. She knows the importance of finding an agent you can trust and depend on and she makes it her goal to make the relocation and selling process, seamless. She has watched the tremendous growth this area has had and is proud to call Lake Norman "Home".
Vanessa has 3 children and 2 grand children. They have all relocated to this area because of it's amazing community spirit and beauty. When she is not with clients, you will most likely find her cooking, gardening or spending time with her two grandsons.
We recently had the pleasure to have Vanessa represent us as purchasers of a lakefront home on Lake Norman. She was a joy and a consummate professional with whom to work. She has strong communications skills and logistical talents. She is detail oriented and paid important attention to the many details that we communicated were important to us. . As we searched for a home, her strong communication skills and appropriate follow-up helped us identify and filter many appropriate candidates for purchase. She kept us closely apprised during the negotiation phases. She stayed on top of important details during the due diligence process and used her extensive networking skills to help us maneuver through the process. She relied on a host of technologies to keep the process smooth and efficient. She was well prepared for every call and meeting and delivered a friendly and personal touch to every aspect of our relationship with her. Even after the closing she has allowed us to remain in close contact and has remained a treasured resource and friend. This is our third home purchase. We have purchased properties in New York City, in the New York City suburbs and, now, on Lake Norman. Our purchase of the Lake Norman property has proven to be the easiest process of the three we have experienced due principally to Vanessa’s guidance, counsel, and assistance. We whole-heartedly recommend Vanessa and encourage, without reservation, all who would like to work with a personable and professional broker who knows the area well and can provide assistance far beyond the mechanical process of guiding buyers and sellers through the process to contact her and work with her.
Vanessa is a pleasure to work with. She knows the Lake Norman area perfectly as to the homes, the neighborhoods and any issues associated with each. But. personal touches are what differentiates Vanessa. She naturally enjoys matching people to their dream home and quickly develops an understanding of what will and won't work for you. She actually made a stressful process fun!
Vanessa Elliot was our realtor agent and we loved working with her. It was our first experience buying a home. She walked us through the process and all the legal jargon. She gave us information that provided us with our mortgage company and our lawyer. She helped ease us into this unknown world and even comforted our fears. If we had a worry she just took care of it. She went the extra mile to make this process easier for us. This is a scary time and especially when the unknown is involved. When I became nervous or fearful I called her. And I called her a lot. She was always ready and willing to be helpful. She was never impatient or upset. She would always say don't worry I am gonna take care of it. And she was true to her word. She took care of it. Thank you Vanessa you helped us make our dream come true.
Vanessa, we wanted to take some time to thank you immensely for helping us to find our dream home here in North Carolina! From the very beginning back in June when we met with you on a visit here, we weren't even sure when we would be relocating from So. California. You stayed in touch with us and when we were ready to move forward, you assisted us in finding temporary housing and a moving storage facility for our household items. Not only that but you met the movers at the storage site and stayed with them as they unloaded our personal belongings into storage! We have never, ever heard of a real estate agent that does all of that for a client.
As soon as we arrived, we were on the road with you the very next day looking at potential properties. Even more helpful was your time in driving us around the Lake Norman area so we could become familiar with an area totally foreign to us. At the end of our housing tours with you we always received something back from you by that evening regarding whatever we had either discussed or had questions about that day in addition to any new listings. We often would say, "Wow Vanessa is working late tonight"! You very quickly came to understand what we were looking for and what we didn't particularly like and when you suggested we look at Denver at a home you had seen almost 8 months earlier that had come back on the market, you nailed it!! We absolutely love it!!!
In addition, we felt very at ease with you from the very beginning and not only did you help us to find our dream home but have become a good friend in the process! While we realize your office likes to receive comments from your clients, we truly, truly could not have been more pleased with all you did to help us!! We couldn't be happier!

Me and my girlfriend just bought our first house and we worked with Vanessa who was recommended to us. We had a wonderful experience working with her, we got the house we wanted in the area we wanted and she walked us through everything and treated us like family. She dropped a personal engagement of her own to show us a house we liked within 30 min. We really appreciate her heartfelt approach to getting us what we want and would definitely work with Vanessa again when the time comes. She made everything easy and explained how the process worked with me being a first time home owner. Thank you Vanessa!
Vanessa at Lake Realty helped me find my lake house. She was positive and knowledgeable about the area. She also provided good advice throughout the house hunting process. I recommend her service.
I am a Mortgage Banker with Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group. I had the pleasure of working with Vanessa just recently, and it was a fantastic experience! Vanessa was always quick to answer the phone, or return my phone calls. Most importantly, she made the process stress-free! When we experienced bumps in the road, Vanessa was quick to take the initiative to smooth everything out. I implore anyone who is in the process of searching for a home to consider Vanessa's services, and I sure hope to have the opportunity to work with her once again! Thank you Vanessa!
Thank you so much for working so hard for Derick and I in this 2 year journey. I know we have been a bit of a thorn in the side, but we are so appreciative of the time and effort you have given us.
We cannot wait to start building memories in our new home! Once we are settled you will have to join us for dinner! Derick is a fabulous cook!!
Buying my first home has been an easy process, thanks to Vanessa. She was wonderful to work with every steps of the way. Her knowledge and experience of the market was really useful, and she made all the legal procedures and paperwork simple. She often had great advice and was always available for questions.
Initially, I wasn't sure what I was looking for but she quickly understood what my needs and desires were. We visited quite a few houses in many different neighborhoods, which helped me narrow down on a location and type of home. In the end, I am convinced that I found the perfect home at the best price.
Working with Vanessa Elliott was a pleasure. She was very patient and always made time for us. We were here for only a few days from New Jersey, and she very knowledgeably filled us in on everything we needed to know to make the decision to relocate here. After showing us a few homes she knew exactly what we were looking for and found us the perfect home near the lake in Denver. We are so happy with our new home and community. I would highly recommend Vanessa to anyone looking to relocate to the Lake Norman area!
Sincerely, Grace and Arthur Nardino
