"I can't begin to express my appreciation for the time and effort Val Klotz invested into our property. I am an executor of an estate and reside several hours away from the property. Val assisted with finding reputable contractors. She worked collaboratively with an exceptional contractor to repair and update the property to get top dollar for the home. Val assisted with selecting paint colors, kitchen cabinets, countertops, appliances, and light fixtures. She helped us find an insurance company which is challenging when the property is vacant. We have sold many properties over the years and worked with many great realtors. Without hesitation, I can honestly say that Val was the best realtor we have had the pleasure of working with. We had multiple offers within the first week of listing our property in excess of the listing price. We closed within fifteen days of accepting the offer. You will not find a more dedicated, honest and compassionate realtor."

"I have nothing but fabulous things to say about Val. For starters, she is very responsive, reliable, and listens to what you are looking for as a buyer. I am thankful she decided to keep in touch with me over the years, as she waited patiently until I was ready to purchase my first condo. Val was never once pushy; allowed me to do my due diligence with finding my loan officer, inspector and HOI company. I did ask for her recommendations for all three. Ultimately, I had a good experience with the inspector and new HOI agent she referred me to. Val also worked great with my loan officer and other 3rd-parties involved - everything went smoothly! She's professional, direct, and made things stress-free as I had her by my side every step of the way. Val always reassured me about options I had not thought of during the process in various scenarios. Her communication was fantastic as she dealt with the seller's side/agent on my behalf. I would definitely go back to her again in the future, as a buyer or seller the next time around. Look forward to recommending her as a realtor for anyone searching in Northern Virginia! :-D"

"We had an excellent experience with Val. She introduced us to all details when buying our first home. She was extremely knowledgeable of the Virginia housing market. Val was available at all times to assist us with our questions and was always available to accompany us for house visits. We are extremely pleased with this positive experience! "
- Lieven

"Val is the best of the best for all your real estate needs. I have used Val as my agent four times in buying and selling property, most recently remotely while living in Japan. She is responsive, savvy, extremely knowledgeable, personable, and understanding. She has understood my needs, more so than I even did at the time, and has always worked for my best interests. She makes processes that seem daunting easy and smooth, and as worry free as possible. Her patience, honesty, and kindness with her clients, combined with her expertise and personal and professional networks, make her unparalleled in her field. If you, your friends or family, or colleagues need a referral, go with Val!"
- Erin

"Val was a very steady hand & guide through my home sale process. She gave me very good advice on what really "sells a home." I followed her advice to the letter and my home sold in 72 hours! I could not have been more pleased with the results. Val's advice netted me a 10% greater profit than the original advertised home price. Her services came highly recommended and I was not disappointed. I urge anyone in the home buying / selling market to reach out to Val. She has your best interest in mind. Call her!"
- Van

"We worked with Val to find our first home. We were able to talk to her and tell her our needs and wants in a house and she followed through. She was easy to talk to and work with and both parties were able to lay down ground rules on how we operated. It was a great match. She was very responsive and professional in every step of the way. We will be contacting her when we are ready to move again. I've also recommended her to my friends. Thank you Val!!!!"
- DeShawn

"In 2019 We Utilized Val Klotz to sell both of our properties in Alexandria. What I liked about Val she never held back. She was always professional and priced our homes at the right price. Val sold one property with a 2 weeks of listing. The other she sold with in a weekend of listing. I highly recommend Val. If I lived in Virginia I would utilize her in a heart beat. Thanks So much Val!"
- Gillian & Chester

"Val was instrumental in helping us prepare our home to put on the market, and patiently worked with us through the process of purchasing our new home. She's responsive, conscientious, and a tremendous advocate for her clients. Can't recommend her strongly enough!"
- Jon

"We purchased a townhome from out of town with Val. She provided wonderful service and supported us through the whole process. Her local knowledge of the market was very helpful to us too. Highly recommended!"
- Matt

"My husband and I were buying our first home together when we literally chose Val off a webpage knowing NOTHING about the process. We had garbage credit, no idea what we were doing, & a 5 year old kid to boot. Val walked us through every step of the way, from rehabbing our credit, to making sure we got bailed out with a great lender when our first lender flaked. She found us everything we asked for in the listings she discovered for us, and held our proverbial and literal hands throughout the process with such patience and grace, all while pregnant with one of her own kids. In the many years since, every time anyone has ever even considered buying or selling a house, we basically trip over ourselves trying to get them to talk to Val first. Val has stayed in touch with us, cared about our family & our property, made sure we knew about changing values in our neighborhood, and is just generally a vital part of our community. You truly cannot do any better than this for your realtor."
- Elizabeth

- John

Val Is honest and forthright with opinion about property price and value as well as potential future home improvement needs. She is also a lot of fun to view properties with!

- Heather

"Huge thanks to Val for being on our side buying our first home. She helped us with everything, from the initial orientation to closing. We could not be happier with her attention to our needs. She really cares about her clients, and was always available and very quick to respond to any questions we had. We were also impressed with her professionalism and knowledge. She was always on top of her game. Our overall experience was excellent and we definitely recommend working with her!"
- Kimberley

"Val’s advice turned me into a first time homeowner using VA financing in this crazy market. Her advice was always practical and with my long term interests in mind. She is extremely knowledgeable about the City of Alexandria and the surrounding areas which I valued since that was where I wanted to stay. She is kind, respectful, and responsive along with being very good at navigating the real estate market."
- Miranda

"Working with Val was a wonderful experience! She is warm and friendly and a totally competent professional. Val listened carefully and showed me beautiful houses. Once we found my new home, she was on top of all the real estate settlement details. Val is efficient, effective and great fun to work with. I highly recommend Val Klotz!!"
- Laurie

"We have bought and sold homes with Val. She is an extraordinary mix of knowledge, insight, patience and caring. I recommend her whole heartedly and never want to use another realtor."
- Stephanie

"It has been a few years since we sold our townhouse & bought our new house with Val, but it was a very smooth process. Val is incredibly professional and makes, what can be a stressful event, really easy. She answered all our questions and concerns promptly. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Val and will definitely be hiring her again when we are ready to sell."
- Gretchen

"Val Klotz was my choice after vetting five highly rated agents. After our first two meetings, I knew I chose wisely. Val is a no-pressure realtor who knows the neighborhood like the back of her hand and she listens to your needs and time frame as a seller. Her advice on preparing my home for sale led me to getting a getting a great offer well over asking price. I highly recommend Ms. Klotz as an agent; she is personable, professional and gets results for you."
- Paul

"Val is very professional. She takes the time to explain everything that is needed. She allows you to make the decisions but gives you all the tools needed to make sure you make the right ones. We used Val to buy and sell our first home and again some 20 years later. We were able to do this due to the cards and letters she sent over the years, she became like part of the family. Anytime someone was interested in buying or selling her name was the only one worth mentioning. She is a great realtor and she is the only one I would ever choose. Great Job!!"
- Denise

"Recently my wife and I needed to purchase a condo in northern Virginia. Time was of the essence. We have years of experience with real estate in Staunton Virginia. Not so much in the faster pace of northern Virginia. Fortunately our daughter got us connected with Val Klotz. Her patience, experience and considerable knowledge of the market resulted in a successful, speedy outcome. Val listens well and does not try to over talk you. She matched our needs to the market which allowed us time to correctly choose the right property. She assisted with the home inspection and corrections and with the condo docs. She connected us with the right professionals which made the whole process rather seamless. She also is a good negotiator on your behalf."
