Vera came to Philadelphia in 2004 and immediately fell in love with the vibrancy, diversity, and authenticity of this city. Working at a number of locations across the city, she found her true calling as a real estate agent helping people to find great apartments and their dream homes. Since joining City Wide Realty in 2011, Vera has worked in almost every part of this city, gaining a street-by-street knowledge of many of the central and up-and-coming neighborhoods, such as Brewerytown, the Art Museum, Graduate Hospital, Center City, Newbold, Point Breeze, West Philadelphia, Fishtown, Port Richmond, and Kensington (Old, South, East), where she now resides with her fiancé.An avid photographer, Vera has a deep love for travel and a great sense of adventure. In her spare time, Vera can be found traveling around remote parts of the world; camping, hiking, or paddling down the rivers in PA and NJ; reading on her couch, growing veggies in her back yard, or pickling them in her kitchen. Vera’s love for good food, interesting culture, and travel stems from her childhood. When not doing any of those, she is not infrequently found knocking down walls as part of a renovation on her latest investment property in Philadelphia.
