Rachel R. Vanderveen
Hi folks! Welcome to our site! All of these "about" sections on every agent's page are all the same, aren't they? "I am dedicated, loyal, and honest. I will lay down in traffic for you. I will refuse to sleep until I sell your house."
I like to think my approach is a lot simpler: I'm a real person. I have a house, a mortgage, six kids and I pay bills just like you do. I understand that you need to get top dollar from the sale of your Calgary home because you don't want to spend your entire income on mortgage payments. I understand that you want simple, no-nonsense information about the Calgary real estate market and what your home is worth. I understand that you want as few showings as possible because you don't want to have to cart your dog and your kids all over the city while people ogle your fridge magnets, and I understand that you may need some help and guidance in getting your home sold for top dollar.
I'm just like you. Like you, I take my job seriously. It's not difficult to be dedicated to your job, and to become an expert in your field, when you love it so much. I really do love Calgary real estate and I love working with people. Since I was licensed in 2006, I have said—and I will always say—that becoming a REALTOR® is the best decision I have ever made.

Having worked at the same job for 15 years, I decided to join Rachel to make something great: The Vanderveen Team. Being partners in life, love, and money, it only made sense to be partners at work. We love every aspect of our work, and I think our business and client-care styles complement each other, which gives our clients the best possible experience.
Having worked as a site supervisor in the trades, I know a lot about not only how homes are built, but how to make sure the customer is satisfied every time. When you phone with questions, we've got the answers, and you talk to a Vanderveen every time, not a team of people designed to keep you away from your agent.

The decision to sell your home is a big one. Whether you're upsizing, downsizing, or relocating, you'll have a ton on your plan if you try to do everything on your own. From marketing and advertising, to getting your house listed on the Calgary MLS® listings, getting the word out to attract interested buyers is no simple task. Once you receive offers, you'll have to negotiate, juggle contract contingencies, and complete piles of legal paperwork.
Luckily, we're here to help. As licensed Calgary REALTORS®, we know these processes like the back of our hands. By putting your home in our highly capable hands, we'll be able to sell your home at the highest price that the Calgary real estate market allows for.
To start, we'll perform a comprehensive comparable market analysis to establish a competitive price for your home. Then we'll provide expert home staging advice, suggested renovations, and other curb appeal tips that will help attract the most potential buyers for your home. We'll market your home through the Calgary MLS® board, and various local and online publications.
Once we've received a purchase offer, we'll negotiate with your best interests in mind. We'll clarify all contract contingencies and walk you through every step of the closing process, and we'll take care of all the paperwork! Essentially, we're here to represent you throughout the entire selling process, and to make sure that your real estate transaction is a positive and profitable experience.
