I am a married mother of three beautiful children, who works hard to not only make my clients happy but also provide for my family. I love giving back to my community through neighbourhood clean-up, fireworks and charitable work. I currently volunteer at my children's schools,(SCC member at my son's school, and Co-Chair of the SCC at my daughter's school). I am also the Implementation Chair of my local Neighbourhood Watch working hard to make our neighbourhood a safer place for our families. This year I hosted my 8th Annual Client Appreciation Movie in the Park event which is always a great night of family fun. When I am not working or volunteering I can be found at my daughter's vocal performances, the hockey rink, soccer field or walking my golden lab Holly. I am a positive and hard working agent, motivated to determine my clients wants & needs and I pride myself in providing excellent customer service. I have several years of customer service and sales experience which lends well to my career within the real estate industry. I have spent much of life in Durham Region, and have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the local housing market. As a successful small business owner and IT professional in the health care field in Ontario , I am aware of the importance of a professional attitude and outlook in a business environment. I also find time to give back to my community as well as charitable causes. The success within my part-time jewellery business has translated into generous support for the R.S. McLaughlin Durham Regional Cancer Centre, Canadian Fallen Soldiers (Support Our Troops), and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Durham Region. The time I have spent as an elected student Governor at Durham College Board of Governors began my passion for benefiting the local community. I am the currently the Implementation Chair of the Neighbourhood Watch in my community. Remember ‘There is No Stoppin’ When You Work With Hopman!!!’

I honestly can’t say enough good things about Vanessa. She has gone above and beyond to help us find our dream home and bent over backwards to make sure our offer was accepted. She was extremely helpful, super reliable and made the whole process a breeze for us. I am so thankful we found someone who understood our tricky situation and still gave 100% even though it seemed impossible that we would find a place. Thank you Vanessa for everything, you truly are the BEST! - Samantha South

Whether you are buying, selling or leasing every detail needs to be completed. Remember ..."There's no stoppin' when you work with Hopman!' I look forward to working with you and your family/friends again the future!
We chose Vanessa to list our property . Vanessa walked through every step in making the sale a stress free experience, from staging to signage and open houses and we felt relaxed. Her experience in the field went a long way to make this a good choice . We wish her the best in the real estate market. We also bought our next property with her. She showed us many places before we said yes! Always there, anytime, any day of the week. She puts her clients first! What an amazing agent she is! - Amitha Jayasuriya

Vanessa was fantastic to work with as we looked for a house to buy. She is knowledgeable, dedicated, patient, and pays attention to details. It was a pleasure to spend time looking for a home with Vanessa as she showed us houses until we found the right one for us. She continues to be available and just a phone call away for any questions. Thanks Vanessa for always going above and beyond in our house buying journey! - Alice Varkey
Reply: Thank you very much Alice and Vigel! Alice I miss our Friday morning showings. I will be over for a visit once you get settled. Your purchase is an amazing home!! I wish you all many years of health and happiness in this property!!
Our thanks to the amazing Vanessa Hopman who did a fabulous job of staging, advertising and advising us through a challenging and constantly changing market with interest rate impacts. Vanessa was excellent in providing us updates on comparable sales and ensured that our listing reflected our property. Even a change to a paint color was captured and updated! She sure is right when she says "there's no stoppin' with Hopman" 😁 - Debra Manchur
Reply: Thank you Debbie and Francois for your continued trust during our ever changing real estate market. You listened to my recommendations and together we were able to get you top dollar for your gorgeous home. The new buyers cannot wait to take good care of the property. Wishing you all the best on your new adventure!
Vanessa was a pleasure to deal with. She went above and beyond in every aspect of selling my house. I would highly recommend her!! There’s no stoppin’ when you’re working with Hopman!! - Stephen Simeunovic
Reply: Thank you very much Steve for your trust in selling your family home. It was a gorgeous home in a great location. I know the buyers will enjoy all of the work your family put into this property.
When I reflect on the sale of our family home, the following terms come to mind when if comes to Vanessa: professional, perseverance, encouraging, dedication, in for the long haul. Vanessa made herself and her trailer available to move our belongings to prep our house for sale. This was above and beyond what we expected from an agent. Her determination showed us that she was in it for the long haul. At times, the declining market caused Vanessa to pivot, creating new strategies for home staging. This ultimately led to the sale of our home. We were stressed out homeowners in a delayed sale situation. Vanessa supported us emotionally so that we were able to maintain a positive outlook. Vanessa was visible, right to the end, in the rain, with her trailer, helping to move the last pieces out of our house. Hats off to you Vanessa. The next clients will continue to benefit from your positive outlook, dedication, and genuine care. - John Clark
Reply: Thank you for your patience John. Listing your home in a changing market is stressful. I am thankful for your trust in allowing me to make changes to your home throughout the process to get you top dollar. As my motto states 'there's no stoppin' when you work with Hopman!' I was not going to stop working until the home was sold and your family was in your new home. Rain or shine I am there to help.
Vanessa was very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful with lots of suggestions and options for staging, selling and ultimately buying my dream home. We couldn’t of asked for a better realtor. - Kate Magno

Reply: Thank you for your trust!! I am thankful we were able to get you top dollar even with the slowly shifting market. Staging and home prep is so important to getting you top dollar!
Vanessa is a fantastic agent to work with when buying a home. She listens to what the buyers specific requests are, and then conducts a search and perseveres until we were ecstatic about our planned purchase. I would recommend her in a heartbeat, she even baked warm cookies which were scrumptious on a cold night whilst visiting properties. She works 110% to ensure that what she finds is what you want. She is so diligent in her research about the new property for her clients, prior to presenting them. Vanessa Hopman, you can shoot for the stars ⭐⭐⭐🌟⭐⭐🌟. . - Shakti Clark

I have known Vanessa for about 4 years since when I first started looking for an investment property in Whitby. Since then she has stayed in touch but without putting me in any kind of market/sales pressure. She is very professional in the way she approaches her business, patient in working with her clients, comes prepared for every meeting, her knowledge of the market overall particularly Durham region is pretty solid and she backs that up with good research. Above all she provides rational recommendations. All the Key parameters that one should look for in a home purchase advisor . She will continue to be my go to person. - Ajit chander

Reply: Thank you so much Selina! I am so happy that we were able to find you a property in your preferred area, within budget and we were able to snag it on the first day before multiples!
Vanessa is amazing. I have used her a few times and she always delivers. She goes above and beyond to fight for her clients, replies fast to messages, and even worked on Mother's Day to show me a house at 8pm. - Nicole
Reply: Thank you so much Nicole!! It was my pleasure to help you and your family find your new home. As my motto states, 'there is no stoppin' when you work with Hopman!!' I will not stop until I find a place for my clients! I am very thankful for your continued referrals.
Vanessa not only sold a house for me but also found a new home for me to purchase. She is extremely professional, thorough and never felt any pressure. I never ever felt like a profit or sale for her. She took her time and was very empathetic and listened to me and my family. I will and have recommended Vanessa to others and will continue to do so. - Joanne Jenkins
Reply: Thank you for the review Joanne! You have had quite the year and I am thankful to have been there to help you through it all. Buying a home takes time and I am happy we found you and your family a great place to call home. Through staging and hard work we were able to sell your property for top dollar in a short period of time.
It was seamless and stress less Always on top of her game, available as many hours there were in the day. She made herself always available when needed we will gladly give her the thumbs up - Terence Hopman
Reply: Thank you for your trust. The home you purchased is perfect for you and your family. The rare elevator in the home was the diamond we were looking for! The market was quiet when you sold but I am thrilled that we were able to get you top $$$.
Vanessa did a great job getting us the best price for home. She helped with complimentary staging, professional photos, and social media exposure to maximize our showings and offers. She also worked very hard helping us find our new home, with multiple last minute viewings and offers on many houses. We finally purchased our new home for a great price in such a competitive market, with the closing we wanted. - William R Martin
Reply: I am so thankful we met at the open house a few years ago. It has been my pleasure to help you both find your first home and now a larger home for your growing family. Wishing you many years of fun and happiness with your family in your new home!
Working with Vanessa as our agent has been a great experience. She helped my husband and I purchase our first home, helped my parents sell their home and now she has sold our house and helped us find a bigger home for our growing family. She is extremely kind and knowledgeable, not just about selling houses but gives her experience on doing renovations as well. You can really tell she cares about her clients, and she makes the buying and selling less stressful. I would absolutely work with her again in the future and recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor! - Erica Cannon

Vanessa has been an awesome Agent. I was both selling and buying my first home. Vanessa was patient, knowledgeable of the many areas we saw and made me feel comfortable to contact her anytime. I highly recommend Vanessa as an Agent as have already done so. Vanessa I can't thank you enough for all you did for me. - Dense Hunt
Reply: Thank you for your trust Denise! We started your home search over a broad area but were able to narrow the property search down and find the perfect home for you in your budget. I am so happy your are enjoying your new place.
Vanessa was wonderful to work with! From suggestions on what we should renovate and upgrade to the final sale, she was so helpful and kind. Her knowledge of the area and the market as a whole was incredible. She also has been instrumental in finding us a new home and worked countless hours in that endeavor. She isn't into selling volumes, she is into providing a superior customer experience, while getting you top dollar for your home. - Sean and Denise Hunt

Vanessa was a great help with all parts of the home buying process. She was extremely diligent and responsive. The purchase was in Williamsburg - a subdivision of Whitby, Ontario. She was familiar with every property selling in that area. Definitely recommend Vanessa. - John Colligan
Reply: Thank you for your review John!! It was my pleasure to help you and your family find a great home in Williamsburg!
As a homeowner of 12 years and deciding to buy a new house and sell our current one , isn't always the easiest desicion. In our case it wasn't just about our home for 12 years and its memories, it also included all the work we put in renovating our home. So we made the leap and I believe a homeowner's dream is to be able to upgrade your home to something better and in some cases bigger. Which for us bigger wasn't a priority but it did happen. We did this and managed to sell our current home for more then what we are paying for our new home. This was something that was totally unexpected but we are beyond happy about it. A big part of this happening is our super agent Vanessa Hopman without her help I'm not sure this could have happened.We would just like to thank Vanessa Hopman for all her hard work and dedication on finding us our dream home and selling our current home. You went above and beyond are expectations as an agent. Never putting any pressure on us. You are in a class of your own when it comes to real estate. You are a super agent. - Danielle & Earl Chamberlain
Reply: Thank you Earl and Danielle!! I am so lucky to be your super agent!! I love your new home and the renovations you are slowly doing to make it your own. Not only is it a gorgeous property but you were able to get it under asking!!! We were able to sell your home well over-asking because of your great workmanship throughout and my staging extras. Wishing you and your family many years of health and happiness in your dream home!
In 25yrs of buying and selling real estate I have never worked with an agent as hard working and thorough as Vanessa. We were purchasing an income property and this was new to us. It was a for sale by owner which brought a whole host of extra challenges and work for her and she never once flinched. She guided us through EVERYTHING. She answered questions we didn’t know we had. Her follow up through the home inspection was unbelievable. 100% recommend Vanessa. You will be in good hands and you can rest assured she will look out for all of your interests. It was a long 8 months of us looking, changing our minds, being uncertain and never once did she make us feel that she was being inconvenienced or impatient with our process. She is Prompt, professional, knowledgeable, thorough and patient. We will use her again. She isn’t just doing transactions, selling or buying houses, she is building long term relationships and that is more than I’ve ever experienced from any other realtor She is amazing - Sheri Manning
Reply: Thank you Sheri for your feedback!! Purchasing an investment property for the first time can be challenging. We looked for the property that matched your criteria and took our time. Working with for sale by owners are not always easy but we were able to get everything taken care of for you and close the transaction with no issues. I always want to make sure my clients understand the process, & be there to answer any questions they may have. I am thankful that you know that I am not just about the transaction but building trust and relationships as well. I look forward to working with you and your family/friends in the future!
