"She was knowledgeable about the targeted locations. She did an amazing job, making sure the correct steps were being completed by the mortgage company. She listened to us and did not try to fit us into a home, that she felt was the one for us. She did a great job of pointing out features and issues, during our house hunting. She made herself available and responded to our calls and emails. She was also courteous and patient. We highly, recommend her and will use her again, if the need arises for us to sell."
"!'ve been working with Valerie for a couple of years now and she is a great real estate agent! My favorite thing about Valerie professionally is that she not only cares about fulfilling her customers 'wish list' but she also considers their well-being in every aspect of the search. It's a very unique 'caregiving' type of customer service which to me, gives credibility as to why she's called, 'The Real Estate Doctor'. It suits her for sure!"
"Did a good job; answered all needs; returns calls promptly; friendly person, thank
