About Valerie
As your Powerful Partner, I engage every endeavor with a Midwest work ethic and a California vision.

Growing up in an international family, I moved to 17 different homes by the age of 30. To say the least, house hunting became familiar at a young age. I am empathetic to the suspense and the energy it requires to relocate. Over the years, I learned how to transform the nerves into excitement and help my clients see the beauty in change. 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 (see reviews below). I pride myself in finding answers and anticipating solutions to unforeseen complications that occur in every transaction. I am with you even after the deal closes. Powerful Partnerships last longer than a house hunt or an escrow period. As my client, I become your Powerful  Partner for everything your home needs, for as long as you need me. 

Initiating my career in Los Angeles on a team selling investment properties, I moved to San Francisco where I learned residential sales among the highest respected professionals the industry has to offer. After 5 years in the most prestigious real estate market in California, I achieved my Broker's License and expanded a team to Los Angeles. I have since been featured in the Bay Area Women’s Magazine.

With a background in fashion show production and management in the beauty industry, I honed the skill of capturing my clients’ vision and goals. I translated my passion for project management and directing creative teams into preparing properties for the market by managing contractors, stagers, photographers, and inspectors while using creative marketing strategies for each individual property. Leading teams, I had to learn to communicate effectively otherwise nothing gets done. With strong communication skills, I negotiate the best possible outcomes for my clients. Powerful Partnerships evoke success and I have thus built my business with a foundation of strong relationships across California. The best lenders, contractors, inspectors, stagers, photographers, and even agents are busy. I make them want to work for you.  

Nothing is more important than creating a foundation for the future. I consider the most valuable foundation starts with investing in your home. 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 with strategic negotiations. By shedding light on the reality of the deal, I will lead you to success. 

 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"

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 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." - Elizabeth L.
