“I don’t generally make recommendations, but if you’re thinking about buying or selling a home, I suggest you contact Vinnie Vaccaro and Trish Herzog of RE/MAX 1st Choice. My wife and I retained them to sell our former Gladstone residence, and we could not have been more pleased. They gave us great advice regarding the time of year to put it on the market and, having been a rental property for the last few years, what we should do to maximize its value.
The most impressive part was their professionalism. The marketing materials were informative and inviting with great pictures. The communication was above and beyond what we expected, with updates every step along the way. We had an offer within 48 hours and, in spite of me being ridiculously stubborn over a couple of minor issues, we had a contract shortly thereafter. They kept in touch all the way through closing, which went off without a hitch, proving to us they genuinely cared about our transaction. Good people!”

“Trish and Vinnie are the most amazing people. They made the selling and buying process incredibly smooth. We had heard stories from others on their experiences, with selling and buying, and were dreading the process. The difference was truly Trish and Vinnie! We were able to speak with them and feel completely understood. We absolutely felt like they had our backs. I would recommend them to anyone. They are a great team but more than that, good people.”
– Nate and Jessica Horseley, Kansas City, MO
“Trish and Vinnie went above and beyond to help us find our home. We were a little nervous about moving to a new state, starting a family and finding a great home, but Trish and Vinnie put our minds at ease and made the process go by smoothly. They were always available to help and never left any questions unanswered. The help doesn’t stop after closing either. They have been open and willing to assist with any questions that come up as we acclimate to the area. If you’re not only looking for great realtors, but great friends as well, we would highly recommend Trish and Vinnie!”
