For over 20 years, Yvette Rose has dedicated herself to effectively guiding buyers and sellers through often complex and potentially stressful real estate transactions across all price ranges. Yvette has earned widespread praise for demonstrating the highest degree of integrity and commitment in the process, and has been praised as “an invaluable asset and advocate” to clients throughout their purchases and/or sales.

Born in Albuquerque, NM, she graduated with honors from Dickinson College, in Carlisle, PA, before embarking on a successful banking career at Chase Manhattan, NYC, where she was soon promoted to Vice President.
