She believes in the importance of thorough research, persistence, and clear communication, and she always takes the time to truly understand her clients' needs so that she may tailor her services accordingly.
"I was a first time home seller, nervous and not knowing what to expect, and Valerie was immediately confidence-instilling. Her knowledge of the market, the sales climate and process, and home construction was a powerful combination, and I felt like her expertise in these three areas made her uniquely qualified to accurately and efficiently advise on every aspect of selling a home. She held my hand through the process, really researched the comps, put together a beautiful listing, and guided me toward a list price that would get some interest - and boy, did it! I had 16 offers in a week! What felt like a stressful endeavor at first quickly became fun, and I felt very taken care of every step of the way. Having Valerie on my side helped me check a huge box off of life's to-do list so that I could focus on moving my life forward. I am so grateful for her."

"Making the decision to sell my childhood home that had been in my family for nearly forty years was difficult. Valerie handled this sensitive situation with compassion and professionalism. We received many offers and sold our home for way over asking, exceeding our expectations. We were thrilled. I attribute our success to Valerie, who gave excellent advice on the repairs we needed to make to get our house market-ready and on how to stage it to best show it off. She was patient with me as we considered the offers and was a strong negotiator with the potential buyers. Valerie worked hard for us, getting us the highest offer with buyers we liked, making this major life change as easy as possible."

"Working with Valerie was a positive experience and resulted in the sale of our house in ten days. She was very thorough throughout the entire process and she helped us navigate smoothly through the lengthy documentation required. This helped to ensure we were ready to start fielding offers right away and her attention to detail followed right through to successfully closing."

"Valerie listened carefully to my needs and helped me find the right home, steering me clear of others that had street appeal but did not fit. The back and forth with the seller and his agent was handled with finesse and no detail was neglected during closing. Bravo!"
