Above and beyond
Vanessa helped my wife and I with a real-estate purchase from a very difficult seller (relocation company). She has been extremely proactive (and reactive when needed) and has lead communications with the selling party when things got messy. She has played a key role in the negotiations when the seller breached several times the contract that was binding us, pushing our closing dates by months. Her services are amazing (pre, during and post purchase) and I would recommend her to anyone who would be looking for supporting a purchase or a sale of real estate. Without her, we could not have possibly got out of our very difficult situation. Vanessa is very thorough in her work and will always work for your best interest (and go above and beyond!)

Excellent estate planning advice & preparation of Will documents.
Ms. Blanco provided valuable estate planning advice which included specifics regarding real estate. She answered all of my questions in a clear and concise manner. She also prepared a complete Will and Testament package of four documents which met my exact needs.

Excellent Real Estate Attorney
I was selling my house as a FSBO. I found a buyer but needed a lawyer to help with the legal end and with the closing. Vanessa was simply wonderful. She is extremely knowledgeable, always responds promptly and offers her services for a reasonable price. She was not afraid to stand her ground with the other side and push back when needed but always in a respectful and professional way. This transaction was successful because of her. Highly recommended!

Excellent!
Vanessa Blanco was our real estate attorney when we purchased our first home three years ago. She reviewed all of our contracts and forms thoroughly and in a timely manner. She communicated well on our behalf with the agents, title company, brokers, and mortgage lender.

Experienced, timely and relateable
Vanessa has always very responsive and concisely answered any questions we had during the process of purchasing our first home. She helped us navigate the complicated process quite adeptly. She assured us that we were also pretty good clients, so don't forget to hold up your end. But having her on our team definitely made all the difference.

Excellent!
Vanessa represented us in the sale of our old home and handled the closing of the new one. She is a knowledgeable, thorough, assertive, detail-oriented attorney. To us, as clients, these qualities in her brought piece of mind and the confidence that the processes were being handled correctly.
