What Buyers Say

Vesna is very experienced and, through her help, I was able to buy my dream home. Because of the way she advocated for me, I avoided a bidding war. She made herself available from beginning to end. While she is in great demand, and therefore very busy, she went the extra mile to help me with every need. She was always available and responded to all my texts and emails right away. I can’t say enough about her professionalism and her warm and friendly personality. I have bought and sold five houses over the years but I’ve never felt as well represented as I did with Vesna.

- Heather

Vesna was so prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. We honestly feel we would not have “won” the negotiations without Vesna. Vesna will be our agent for life.

- The Sullivans

Vesna exceeded all expectations. She is perhaps the best I have encountered and I spent enough time working for a title company to know. Superb in every manner. Good value in all respects Vesna has no equal.

- Ed

Vesna helped us with getting the land we wanted. Vesna is always professional and she made the transaction very easy and worry-free. We know we can count on Vesna. She is very professional, quick to answer our questions, always helpful, and caring.

- Dirk and Christine

Our feelings of joy and awe upon moving into our new home can only be matched by our gratitude to you. You have been our guide, our confidant, and our problem solver. Your warmth and professionalism brought us home.

- Steve and Johanna

OUTSTANDING! She goes well beyond and always with a smile. It’s fun to work with her. Her knowledge and CARE are unmatched. Vesna is my superhero in the real estate business – she can do magic - and I would never work with anyone else.

- Sandra

Vesna was the perfect balance of patience and persistence, extremely knowledgeable, a joy to work with. She is the reason we bought our house. She is First Rate and First Class.

- Bill and Elizabeth

From the moment I met Vesna, I knew she was the right choice in an agent. She is super responsive and available. But so much more! She got us squeezed in to see homes when appointments were full, took us on "FaceTime Tours" when we couldn't get to the island, and is truly embedded in the community. I am convinced that we ended up with a successful offer in a competitive situation because of her deep knowledge of and experience with the market. She helped us put together a strong offer, and her sterling reputation is definitely a plus. She is whip-smart, practical, knowledgeable, and SUPER FUN to work with. I love working with highly accomplished, successful women with a killer sense of humor, and cannot recommend Vesna enough!

- Cynthia Hennessy

Vesna is incredible. We couldn't be happier with the service she provided. She's quick to respond, knowledgeable, friendly, and was always available for us when we needed her. Highly recommended, thank you Vesna!

- Kelchj

By the end of buying our first house, with her guidance, it felt like we were basically family. She educated us on the process, helped us become more competitive buyers, and supported us in making the right decisions along the way. Her tenure and knowledge in the business made us feel so taken care of. It was a joy to work with Vesna, she’s the best there is!

- Dylan

I have been told by the owners that we bought from that Vesna did a wonderful job of describing my husband and me and really “selling” our offer. The listing agent also said it seemed to come from the heart. Exceptional job.

- Tulley

This has been the best experience of home buying we have ever had. You simply ARE the BEST!

- Grace and Jon

Vesna is obviously so experienced with the Bainbridge market and that, combined with her negotiation skills and personality, helped ensure a positive outcome. She helped make our house hunting trips to Bainbridge efficient and effective, which was especially appreciated given that we have 2 young children! We will recommend her to others without reservation and consider her a friend.

- Kathy and Kulpreet

Vesna was knowledgeable, patient, and supportive – an excellent resource and advocate. She is the best agent we have ever worked with. We would highly recommend Vesna.

- Marty and Betsy

Vesna Somers was an excellent agent! She hung in there with us for a year while we hunted for the "perfect" property. As we lived across the country in Boston while looking, it took a committed agent to keep us informed. She took the time to get to know us personally which really helped her identify what we'd like most. Her opinion was greatly valued!! On a personal note, I truly like Vesna as a person. I think that she is warm, funny, optimistic, and has great integrity. I HIGHLY recommend her!

- Jane Axelrod Davis

Vesna is a superstar realtor. I have worked with Vesna as my buyer’s agent on two home purchases recently — one as a home and the other as an investment. I am very pleased with her and would be delighted to have her as my agent on purchases or sales in the future. Her expertise has been very helpful both in terms of understanding the homes we looked at and in understanding the Bainbridge real estate market. She provided crucial guidance in a fast-moving market and during fast-moving negotiations. Vesna is a pleasure to be around and is fun to work with.

- Chris

Vesna = A++ in every way. We had a wonderful experience start to finish and we were wary of realtor services given past experiences. She is such a bright, warm & intelligent person. This all carried over into her work, securing us a home we love at the right price. She is a true gem and we had an awesome home buying experience.

- Ashley and Kelly

Vesna’s experience and endless patience made the entire process less nerve-wracking. Vesna was always willing to show us another property and we could always rely on her for an honest, objective viewpoint. Vesna is not allowed to retire until we have bought and sold the last homes we will ever need. She has helped me with 3 homes over 20 years and I would recommend her to anyone I know.

- Rick and Cindy

Professional at every level. We’ve worked with Vesna for about 15 years and very much enjoy and appreciate the relationship.

- Dave and Terry

Vesna represented our interests with her depth of knowledge, her professionalism, and her exceptional instincts honed by years of doing what she does best. Her legal knowledge is a definite plus.

- Rene and Mike

What Sellers Say

I highly recommend Vesna Somers, and Windermere RE Bainbridge for the excellent service provided as my Listing Broker in the recent sale of my house on Bainbridge Island. Vesna was very instrumental in analyzing the market value with comparable properties on the Island to determine the right price range. She was always open and sincere in sharing her views with me. The pandemic changed the rules, but Vesna understood the new rules and ensured compliance. The price as adjusted once at Vesna's suggestion and we had a full price offer and executed sales agreement on the first day of the adjusted price. Thereafter, Vesna provided assistance, advice, encouragement and support throughout the transaction. She was always available. Vesna is an excellent communicator and kept both sides informed and up to date. I highly recommend Vesna as your listing broker or buyer's agent. She will perform in a professional manner with the right demeanor, personality, and charm that will greatly assist in ensuring a successful transaction

- C. Jones

Vesna was an outstanding partner in the sale of our Bainbridge home.

Once an offer was made, she handled the negotiations expertly...I recommend her with the highest enthusiasm to any prospective seller.
