Summary of their experience
Jan and Mark Vinikoor are our heroes. They Listed and sold our home in Scarsdale, and they found us our new, dream home in White Plains. We don't view these to be two separate transactions, but rather, one singular, profound transition that they facilitated. Moreover, in his prior career as general contractor, Mark constructed our two prior dream homes. Together, Mark and Jan have enriched our lives by guiding us through our most important and difficult transitions. They earned our trust every step of the way. They under-promised and over-delivered. We have recommended them repeatedly to our best friends. They provide a unique combination of expertise in terms of contracting/construction/design skill and market/pricing judgement. We consider ourselves lucky to know them and to have benefited from their skills, efforts and friendship.

Jan and Mark were excellent to work with in every area. Their assistance and recommendations for preparing the house for showing, their guidance in pricing and their negotiation skills were outstanding. They guided us every step of the way and were immediately responsive to any concerns we or the  buyer had. They concluded a transaction where both buyer and seller ended up satisfied. Do yourself a favor and call them!Less

Jan and Mark went above and beyond! They are the two most helpful, knowledgeable and caring people that we have ever met. They turned a stressful situation into a very pleasant (and fun) experience!

Meredith Perl - August 24, 2017

 

Jan sold us our house in Harrison 22 years ago when we moved to Westchester from California. She was not only our RE Agent but she and Mark became great friends. When it was time to sell, there was no question that we would turn to Jan and Mark. It was a competitive market but they persevered  with much patience and extreme professionalism. They jumped in to help at every juncture along the way, whether it was trimming the front yard branches so that we got the absolute best curb view photograph or taking care of our dog when potential buyers were skittish about pets! They truly went above and beyond. Selling a house can be stressful but Jan and Mark did everything possible to keep us focused and optimistic. I would highly recommend " The Power of Two" !!Less

Jan was absolutely amazing to work with. My husband and I had been looking for a home for 5 years and she showed us a ton of houses in that time frame. She showed so much patience with us and so much respect by not pushing us to go for something we weren't sure about. Through the years there were a  few houses we thought were "it", and we came pretty close a few times. Other agents would probably have been frustrated but Jan never pressured us, in fact, she agreed that if it didn't feel right, we should walk away. Jan's family built houses and Mark is a contractor so their knowledge was indispensable to us. We would recommend them to anyone. We recently moved in to our dream house and it's all thanks to Jan and Mark.Les

We were pleased to recently complete the purchase of our first home with the expert guidance of Jan and Mark Vinikoor. Jan’s decades of experience were evident in her assessment of the homes she showed us, pointing out both their strengths and weaknesses, while Mark’s construction background was a  true asset when evaluating the condition and potential of a home. Furthermore, they were extremely patient, reliable, and always available for us throughout our home search. Overall, Jan and Mark are a great team and a delight to work with!Less

As 30 year home owners we needed a lot of help when we made a decision to "right size" our home. We quickly learned that a real estate agent does a whole lot more then list and show your house. There are multiple aspects of buying and selling that can easily becomeoverwhelming, but Jan and Mark  were there at every single moment. From helping us find the right home for our needs to staging and presenting our current home and every detail inbetween Jan and Mark were always available, knowledgable and most importantly, solution-minded. The bottom line is we could not have done it without them and we would not hestitate to recommend them. Less 

 

 

 

Jan and Mark Vinikoor recently helped me relocate to Westchester from Bermuda. I was completely unfamiliar with area and they were extremely helpful in providing me with direction and information on the various communities within Westchester. Being outside the country, I need realtors I could rely More 

 

 

 

Jan and Mark were extremely helpful helping my 87 year old dad sell his house. Not only does she do an excellent job pricing, listing and selling the house, she has patience to help my dad clean and stage his house. It takes a special person to help a man who has spent over 50 years in his home  to be comfortable selling his house! Jan and Mark showed patients of a saint and were willing to help in anyway they could to get the house sold. You can not go wrong with Jan and Mark! Less

Incredibly patient and trustworthy

Jan, and her husband Mark, were amazing at every step of us buying our new home. As first time home buyers, they were incredibly patient and trustworthy, always looking out for our best interests. We were so happy to have built a relationship with Jan and Mark, and feel so lucky to have had their help with buying our home!! Jan is incredibly responsive, loyal, patient, and gives a unique perspective on the community as well! We HIGHLY recommend both Jan and Mark!"
