The VanFenton Team

Whether you are thinking of buying, selling, or both, one of your first steps should be surrounding yourself with a group of professionals who can guide you through the process. Your team should include a Realtor, loan consultant, tax advisor, escrow and title representative, insurance agent, and property inspector just to name a few. Realtor is the first on the list not only because that is what we are, but also because your Realtor can help you build the team. You will always be in the drivers seat; we are here to help you navigate.

The VanFenton Team is a partnership between Anja van Ditmarsch and myself, Mary Fenton. We are both Realtors in the San Francisco Coldwell Banker Lakeside office. Coldwell Banker has a 20.5% market share in the bay area, and the Lakeside office is the top selling office in the city with over one hundred agents. The VanFenton Team comes to you with a powerful support system behind us.

Anja and I work well together because we share a value system. Integrity is at the top of our list, as is the interest of our clients. These come above closing a sale. We are hardworking and detail oriented; we will look over every aspect of your transaction and keep you comfortable and informed as you go.

We come from very different backgrounds, and each bring our own set of skills to the table; together we don't miss a beat! Anja is a retired Veterinarian; she also had a flower and events business here in San Francisco before she became a Realtor. She brings her wonderful business sense, her strong work ethic, her keen aesthetic eye, and her fighting spirit to the negotiating table. She has four sons, one foster daughter, and fourteen grandchildren spread all around the globe. She speaks Dutch, English, French, German, and conversational Spanish.

Before becoming a Realtor, I was a dancer and a dance teacher. Most recently I had been teaching partner dancing at the Metronome Ballroom in Potrero Hill. My teaching background gives me patience and the ability to explain each step of the transaction clearly. My knowledge of San Francisco and its real estate market is strong, and I love sharing it with people. I am dedicated and sensitive to the needs of our clients. My husband and I have two young sons; four years and six months old. I speak English (obviously) and Spanish.

As a team, we will go above and beyond for you. We especially like working with first time home buyers as we can really take the reins and guide them through. We enjoy working together and look forward to working with you.
