Growing up in an international family, I moved to 16 different homes before the age of 25 and became accustomed to the house hunting process at a young age. I’ve become empathetic to the feelings of suspense and the energy it requires to relocate into a new environment. Over the years I found beauty in this change and how to transform the nerves into excitement. Now it is my passion to help clients through the most significant moments of their lives.
My clients know me to be diligent, persistent, and a hard negotiator. I pride myself in using instincts to guide them through their real estate investments with integrity. Initiating my real estate career in Los Angeles, I sold apartment buildings to foreign investors on an extraordinary team. I moved to San Francisco to take my business to the next level and have since been featured in the Bay Area Women’s Magazine.
With a background in management, fashion show production and directing in the beauty industry, I honed my skills for capturing my clients’ vision and their goals; while balancing project operations, directing teams, and time management. I believe that powerful partnerships evoke success and have thus built my business with a foundation of strong relationships.
While working with clients, I’ve learned that nothing is more important than creating a foundation for the future. I consider the most valuable foundation starts with investing in your home. Whether you’re looking to buy or sell real estate, you need the information that prepares you for the most important decisions of your life. This is why I hustle for the details and use a data driven approach to negotiate in the real estate market. I will shed light on the reality of the deal and lead you to success. Allow me to use a Midwest work ethic and a California vision for your real estate goals. Every home has a story, what is yours?
"Valerie was there when I couldn’t be, and sold my home when other agents could not get the job done. We tried to sell our home a couple years prior to being introduced to Valerie and the agent was a huge disappointment which made me reluctant to trust an agent again. Our family is international and could not be present for the sale, but after seeing the detailed data and market analysis of my property, I knew she was on top of her game. She educated us and she believed in my home until the end. Valerie helped us through every step of the process and gave us informed options at every turn of the deal. She listened to what we needed and the way she negotiated is why we trust her so much. Val is not afraid to fight for her clients and take calculated risks for success. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family. " - Mike P
"My husband and I serendipitously met Valerie at an open house and decided to work with her for the purchase of a house we found. To be honest, we had always been skeptical about how much value an agent can add. This opinion really changed when we worked with Valerie. She reviewed the home and every decision to make sure it was in the best interest of our family. She did her due diligence before bringing a decision to us and was not shy about sharing her opinion to help guide us to find the path that was right for us. She fought for us on several occasions to make sure that we moved in under the optimal conditions. We appreciate her strong work ethic and her genuine passion for her clients. We would highly recommend Valerie to our friends and family. " - Sherry Z
