About Me

Vanessa Kitchen is a dynamic real estate professional who is dedicated to delivering the best possible service to her clients. A native of San Francisco, California, Vanessa developed a passion for real estate early on, following in the footsteps of her mother, Nina Hatvany, one of the nation's top real estate agents.

Vanessa currently works with Joan Swift, the #1 Individual Agent at Douglas Elliman in 2011, building their thriving residential sales business. Joan and Vanessa specialize in high-end luxury properties including townhouses, lofts, co-ops, condos and new developments in all areas of the city. They work tirelessly to ensure that their clients receive the highest level of customer service and get the maximum return on their investment.

Vanessa holds a B.A. in Psychology from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, and an M.A. in Journalism from New York University. Vanessa previously worked in editorial, public relations and marketing, using her writing skills to further promote her clients. Her writing and "people skills" remain her two greatest strengths, as well as her in-depth communication and marketing knowledge of how to best attract customers to a property. Her clients appreciate her direct, no-nonsense approach to sales, strong work ethic and intelligent assessments of market trends and value.

A Manhattan resident for over nine years, Vanessa owns a condominium in Murray Hill. Recently gut-renovating her apartment taught her a great deal about how to best navigate contractor selection, alteration approval and the unique challenges of renovation management in NYC. She frequently works as a project manager for her clients who live outside NYC, overseeing day-to-day construction and repairs as well as managing the rental process for investors. She currently serves as Board President of her 80-unit condominium, which gives her invaluable insight into day-to-day building operations, financials and the board approval process. Vanessa also is a part-owner of a multi-unit rental investment project in California, providing her with an acute understanding of how to efficiently develop multi-unit properties into successful income-producing and appreciating assets.

She is an active member of the New York Junior League, and volunteers for the Playground Improvement Project. In her spare time, she enjoys writing, cooking and traveling.
