What Is the PERFECT Realtor To Have???
One who will never give up? One who is a great negotiator? One who invented 'thinking outside the box’? AND, one who is also an interior designer. Yes, can you even imagine the MORE PERFECT combination?
STOP looking you've found one! Yes I'm an interior designer and a Realtor. Being the perfect combination, I'm able to see what the house could be buried under the not so nice paint, carpet, wallpaper, wood paneling, popcorn ceilings, and yes even what the vision would be by moving walls!
Now is the time to make an appointment with the visionary you want leading your team!
I have had a colorful past, from training and showing high-powered show horses and dogs, to running my own business for over 25 years.
My experiences have taken me all over the country developing my clientele. In 1990, I moved to Chicago from Denver to pursue training and showing horses while developing my interior design style. Later, I was a designer with an independent design firm for numerous years, before leaving to create my own business. Working with numerous Realtors and developers in Chicago, my interest and passion for real estate grew and grew.
The newest chapter in my life has begun with the move of my primary residence to Scottsdale, Arizona. It has long been my goal to live in the Valley of the Sun and to continue to grow my business here.
Upon moving to Arizona, I decided to add real estate to my life. It's a natural progression from interior design to representing buyers and sellers in their pursuit of the perfect home. Coming from an extensive customer-service background, I am always there for my clients. There is no request too large or small for me to satisfy
My business philosophy is giving them what they want and keep them happy. I'm excellent in reading wants and needs for my clients. I approach each endeavor with the passion and drive that has carried me through years and years of customer satisfaction. This stems from decades in business for myself with a focus on customer service. If I ask the right questions and keep probing for the right answers, then the outcome can be nothing but successful!

First of all I wanted to send a quick note to say thank you to Coldwell Banker for all their hard work in the purchase of our new home.We are absolutely satisfied with every detail. Every person that we dealt with went out of their way to make sure that we felt special through the whole process.
My husband and I started this adventure over a year ago when we still resided in Washington state. Moving to Arizona has been a dream of ours for quite a while. Through a series of events on facebook, Van Robinson found out that we were starting our search and contacted us.From the very beginning we felt completely cared for in every way. I can honestly say that we have never met any one quite like Van.There never seemed to be a question that he didn't have an answer for, or a problem that he couldn't find a solution to. Never did we feel pressured in anyway and I know that Van wanted to find OUR house just as much as we did. He spent so much time with us just putting together a picture of what our dream home looked like. I think Van knew it was our house before we did. Van was always able to see the positive side even when it looked impossible to us. I could go on and on about Van but the fact is that I know that without him we would NOT be in our dream home there is no doubt in my mind about that. In the future I will refer all friends and family to Coldwell Banker and Van Robinson, my huband and I will never deal with any one elses.
So in closing yes our experience has been very rewarding!!!! There are just not enough words to tell you how grateful we feel to have Van as our Realtor and very dear freind. Life long friends are hard to find and I definetly feel that we have found one in Van and Coldwell Banker.
Thank you so very much!!!!!!

My husband and I recently purchased a north Phoenix home at 20437 N 17th Way, our agent is Van H. Robinson. He found a home for us which fit our exact criteria and so much more.
We live in Gary Indiana and so this home is a long distance purchase. He provided service "above and beyond" to make this purchase happen, during every step of the process. We could not have been happier with Van as our Coldwell Banker agent.

I want to let you know about one of your best realtors I have ever known, Van Robinson.
Van helped us this past August purchase a winter home for my parents, and it was not an easy task.
We were under a time restraint and limited funds to find them a new home in Arizona. I can’t thank Van enough for all the time he took and really listened to all the needs that we listed in purchasing a new home. Van was always there when I would call and would show us houses whenever we were available to look. He showed us exactly what we were interested in buying and soon found the perfect property for my parents. He stayed involved in the entire process and was very helpful with ideas and suggestions for us.
You should know how grateful we are to Van Robinson and we will be using him as our personal realtor in the near future for all our real estate dealings.
Van is the most helpful caring realtor we have ever dealt with and I thought you should know how awesome we think he is.

I am writing to you regarding our experience with purchasing a home using Coldwell Banker Real Estate/Arizona Moves. We are thrilled with our new home and excited about our move to Arizona. The experience of purchasing this home was a long one for us due to the climate of real estate in Arizona. However Van Robinson made this process one of the best experiences we have ever had buying a home!!
Van was very up front with us regarding the real estate climate and the way to buy a home in this climate. He was very knowledgeable about the areas in town in which we wished to look and encouraged us to research each area. He was patient with our decision-making process and at times gave us food for thought in this process. He gave us ideas about how we might make each home our own. He was a consummate guide, organized each day with ease and made each trip into a home an occasion for fun and serious reflection on whether the home would meet our needs. He got to know us well and anticipated our concerns and led us in the right direction to resolve these concerns. He had excellent recommendations for possible services available which might be used in updating the home we might choose. When Van was with us searching for our home he was focused on our needs and determined to help us with anything that might make our purchase easier.
We can’t say enough about how Van really made our home search a wonderful experience! Despite the heat and the disappointment when a home went under contract right after we looked at it; Van helped to keep our spirits up and reassured us that we would find the right home. He is an asset to your agency and I would not hesitate to recommend Van and your agency to a friend who is searching for a home.

Dawn, I would like to congratulate you for for having Van in your group. He is a super person and we are honored and very pleased to have the opportunity to meet him. He was awesome working with us and helping us trying to get our house, walking with us every step of the process from beginning to end.
Van, friend, thank you, thank you very much for all your help. Remember that we owe you a Puertorican dinner or lunch or whatever you wish from us. Again, thank you and we hope that this was a beginning of a good frienship and maybe be able to do business with you again soon.

I'm writing to let you know how pleased I was with Van Robinson's services over the months leading up to and following the purchase of my home in The Boulders. Right from the start Van answered my initial email inquiry immediately. As a result I was able to look at many houses with him during my short initial visit last July.
Van was patient with me but remained involved after I returned to Boston and as I went through the process of deciding whether to buy a second home in Scottsdale. He encouraged me, but never pushed. This attention led me to a follow-up visit to Scottsdale in August to look again at the home that I eventually purchased.
Once I made the decision to purchase the home, Van was professional, helpful, and conscientious of all of the issues involved. He returned my calls and emails very quickly, and I can't tell you how important this was to me. When I was unable to get a mortgage lender who could close within 30 days, Van was able to find me a mortgage broker who could get the deal done in time. During the closing process Van was able to deftly handle and resolve the last-minute potential deal-breakers. Without his steady professionalism at this final stage of the process, I don't know that this purchase would have happened.
As a former manager myself, I feel that it is important to point out when a job is so well done. And that was certainly the case here. Van is an excellent agent and one who I will enthusiastically refer to anyone who is considering purchasing a home in the Scottsdale area.
