Dear Vilma, when we first contacted you to show us a home, we knew you were different than the other realtors we had dealt with. We could feel instantly that you had a heart, and you understood that we were looking for a home, not just a house or an investment. You gave us encouragement when we felt like we would never find what we were looking for, kept us optimistic that we would find it, and you succeeded in finding us a home! You answered our questions and were there every step of the way, and you understood us and were always there for us. We will be forever grateful for your help, and thank you so much for making our dream of home ownership come true!
Best, Lisa and Sean
Letter regarding Vilma Letosky……………………..
In 2010 my husband passed away suddenly. I was on the verge of losing my home of 42 years. Vilma helped me with so many parts of this great loss. She tried to help me through a short sale, but at that time the banks were not working with my type of sale. So I had to look into other housing arrangements.
In 2011, Vilma suggested the idea of purchasing a mobile home. She took me around the several of her listing and I found the perfect home for me. She was a great help with all of the paperwork and leading me thru escrow.
Vilma has become a great friend. I can’t imagine the sale going so smoothly with anyone else. She was so knowledgeable. I am very pleased with my new home.
I have already recommended her to others and I will continue to do so in the future. Vilma has continued to keep in contact with me to see how I am doing.
Thank You for your interest.

I am writing this letter on behalf of Vilma Letosky, to tell you of my experience in the sale of my home.
In 2012 I was going to retire from work. I had decided to move in with my sister-in-law, Sharon, to share her mobile home. At that time I planned to sell my home. Sharon told me about her experience with Vilma and how smoothly the purchase of her mobile home had gone.
After meeting with Vilma to begin the process of selling my home, we discovered that I did not have a clear title of ownership.
My sister was part owner of the property and after she passed away, probate was not done. So in order to establish clear title, I had to file a probate with the court for her estate.
Vilma walked me thru each difficult step in the process. She even went with me to court to file the paperwork.
After I got clear title, we started the selling process. Vilma found me a buyer so quickly. It didn’t take long before we started escrow. Lots of paperwork, but Vilma lead me all the way.
I am so pleased and amazed how everything worked out. Because of her expertise and knowledge I would recommend to anyone.
Vilma has become a wonderful friend to our family.
Thank You for considering Vilma, a good choice.

“Vilma Letosky (Bella Vista Estates) has been my broker during the purchase of my two homes and through the process of selling one. I have also recommended Vilma Letosky to purchase two other homes for two of my relatives, transactions happily completed. In summary, Vilma Letosky is someone that cares and looks out for the best of the client and is upfront about the pros and cons of a home transaction. There is no pressure to make a purchase but rather she is willing to find the home the best suits your family. Vilma is very well connected with supporting businesses that are necessary when purchasing a home, such as Financial Officers, Inspection Companies, Insurance options and CPAs. Vilma Letosky has proven to me her extent experience and great customer service.”
I just want to thank you for making a dream come true for me and my family. I had tried 2 other agents before meeting Vilma, These Agents will not bother to follow up with me and it was hard to locate them or to show me properties, Vilma was always there for me, from the first time I called her until the closing of escrow. I felt very comfortable with Vilma, if I didn’t understand something, she always took the time to explain it, until I was completely satisfied.
I was so happy to find an agent who took the time and dedication to show us places and respond to any questions at any time, my family and I were so lucky to find someone that made our dream come true in such a short time.
All I could say is that I’m happy I called for that listing and that I could meet Vilma Letosky.

I just recently purchased my first home and wanted to give everyone that is looking to purchase a home a little tip/secret. Vilma Letosky with Re/Max is the BEST. I will not tell you a lie, buying a home (at least your first home) can be stressful, but Vilma was there every step of the way to help with anything and also to help explain everything that was going on. She made the home buying process a pleasure from the start of looking at homes up until closing. Hopefully it will not happen for a while, because I LOVE my new home, but if I ever buy another home the first person that I will call will be Vilma Letosky.

We thought we would never find a house, we had been under contract three times, and been trough four real estate agents, and lost a lot of money, we were very disappointed that the contracts fell trough and with real estate agents in general. At that point we decided to search on our own. After a few weeks of searching, we found a house that we liked and the listing agent was Vilma Letosky. We called and found that the house was under contract, but during the conversation we agreed to give Vilma a chance to help us finally to find a home.
Once we spent a little time with him searching, we knew that he was different from the rest. It turned out that we were right. A few weeks later, we were under contract with the house we own today!. During the whole process, Vilma looked out for the best interests and let us make our own decisions. It was a pleasure having him as our real estate agent. Vilma came through for us.
Thank you very much,
Luis & Maria Rodriguez
