Success Stories
  • I met Valerie scouting out a house on my own. She asked me if I had a realtor, and I responded, “Well, no, not really”. In fact, the two who said they would help me wanted to start off by my meeting them at their office and going over things there. My schedule was busier than theirs, so I never had a “sit down” with them, because I really didn’t have the time. Who has the time to buy a house? It’s a full time job when you get started, and most people already work. Valerie understood this, and even came to me for much of what we had to accomplish. The only time we were in an office was to sign the papers at the title company. I probably wouldn’t own the lovely home I have now - were it not for Valerie being on the ball. She let me know in a very timely way that a house that perfectly fit my description was back on the market. I saw this house before I met her, but had given up on it, as it was a “sale pending” to another buyer when I saw it. Before the street sign had been changed and put back on the market, I was able to lock it up with an offer - no competition. Sweet, just an offer! No bidding wars. This was priceless, as I wouldn’t have likely survived a bidding war. She was clever in handling the buyer/seller exchanges such that everyone could accept the transaction. Negotiating with the seller is not an easy task. It’s Valerie’s genuine nature that appeals to both the seller and the buyer. Trusting in her keen intuition created and enabled the sale. She listens to what you’re looking for and is tireless hunting for it. We generated an offer for my dream house within 4 weeks of our chance meeting. You can put your trust in her and take the leap of faith.

  • Valerie is an awesome real estate agent! We interviewed her with very little notice, and she was prepared with comps, contracts, everything! From that hour meeting, we just knew that she could the job of selling our mother's house and get top dollar. Did she ever! She kept the family well informed on the progress. Any hiccups were well researched and options provided. She is a tough negotiator and took care of us from soup to nuts. She was the key component to make the sale of our mother's house run so smoothly. If and when we are ready to buy or sell a home, I will definitely call Valerie! She is the best!

  • We are so happy we had Valerie helping us with our recent home purchase. The market in the Bay Area is so competitive right now and we had some tough objectives to meet. She not only helped us consider creative options she also kept us grounded in reality and avoiding overbidding on poor investments. After working with Valerie over a short period of time she ultimately helped us land on our dream home. She was a shrewd negotiator and handled the difficult selling realtor with class. I would highly recommend Valerie to anyone looking to buy or sell in the East Bay.

  • Valerie was responsive and worked hard to help us get into a house we love. As first time home buyers, we really appreciated her knowledge, patience, and willingness to help us understand the house buying process. We would recommend Valerie without reservation to anyone seeking someone knowledgeable in the real estate market of the East Bay and its many nuances.

  • Valerie has been an exceptional advocate for this first time homebuyer. If it were possible to give more stars for negotiation skills I would throw in a few more. The home we found needed a considerable amount of work, and she was able to negotiate a sizeable reduction in price. She will get you absolutely the best price possible. Home buying is potentially a highly stressful activity. Valerie pretty much held my hand all the way through it, patiently explaining the steps of the process from beginning to end, answering all my nit-picky questions and looking out for my extremely detailed requirements for the perfect home. She has an extensive list of reputable service providers for repairs (double checked on Angie's list, Parents Network and Checkbook.org). I would put my complete trust in Valerie when it comes to buying a home, and wholehearted recommend her services whether you are buying or selling.ent
