About Valerie
Over the past 7 years, I have helped many clients succeed in their real estate endeavors across California. Personally having moved over 17 times (including internationally and across the country) gave me insight as to what advocating for buyers and sellers truly means. Blending my Midwest work ethic with a California vision, I have built a business on a foundation of 'Powerful Partnerships'. These partnerships begin with my clients and expand to the many experts I trust to take care of them. Together these Powerful Partnerships help my clients through life's most pivotal moments.

Drawing from extensive experience as a broker associate in diverse California markets, including Los Angeles and San Francisco, I leverage multi-market techniques, current data insights, and negotiation strategies that form the bedrock of success in real estate transactions. From preparing properties above the industry standard to protecting and educating buyers, I am committed to empowering clients with informed decisions that shape their futures.

As a diligent, persistent, and hard negotiator, I take pride in finding answers and anticipating solutions to unforeseen complications in every transaction. Anyone can find a property or open a door. What brings value to my clients is a level of communication that creates certainty. Certainty closes deals. 

With a background in fashion show production and management, I ensure every property tells a compelling story. Beginning with creative design strategies and closing with seamless coordination through select partners in staging, photography, inspection, and dependable contractors; preparing a home for the market is at the forefront of a successful listing.

Every home has a story. What is yours?



"Valerie is phenomenal! I have worked with other realtors in the past, but not until I met Valerie did I understand what it meant to work with a top-tier, high-quality professional like herself. Valerie is more than just a realtor, she is a tough negotiator, project manager, advocate, and confidant. She truly went above and beyond her role, more than anything we could have ever imagined. Valerie demonstrates many strengths in effective communication, impeccable attention to detail, and demonstrates an extensive knowledge base. Valerie will patiently walk you through the home-buying process, while providing her expertise and valuable insight. For us, even after the deal, Valerie continues to be a resource, and is happy to provide us with her connections and referrals! It has been a blessing to have Valerie come into our lives! I can honestly say that I have developed a trusting, long-lasting friendship with Valerie that will continue on well after the purchase of our home, she is genuine and warm and anyone who will have the pleasure of working with her will feel the same. You will not be disappointed"

"Buying your first home is unquestionably a daunting process and can be overwhelming, but Valerie made the process much more manageable than I anticipated. She is incredibly knowledgeable, hard-working, and persistent- she will do everything in her power to find you what you are looking for. Valerie goes above and beyond to communicate with everyone involved in the home buying process and will make sure everything gets done the way it should and on time. She goes the extra mile to check up on all repairs and provides contacts for every little service you might need to take the home perfect and move-in ready. She is full of connections and recommendations and will guide you along the way. To boot, Valerie is always incredibly friendly, upbeat, and responsive which makes the process all the more enjoyable. I have had a great experience working with Valerie on buying my first home!"

"We consider ourselves so fortunate that Valerie was our agent and highly recommend her, especially for families! She went above and beyond to get us the home of our dreams! "
- Erich W.

"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 of 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

"Super responsive and immensely helpful in getting all parties on the same page." - Jessica P.

"Valerie is an expert guide to navigate the SF condo market. Highly professional and well-informed, Valerie strategically recommended and drove a successful pre-emptive offer for a condo in the Yerba Buena area before it was on the market. As I am not a California resident, Valerie diligently represented throughout the process ensuring awareness for an informed decision every step of the way. Responsive and timely communication is Valerie's forte, as a trusted buyer's broker."
