Client Testimonials

★★★★★
"Valerie was perfect for helping me find and close on my dream condo in downtown San Diego! The entire process was intimidating and confusing as a first time home buyer but Valerie was very knowledgeable as well as extremely quick responding to my many questions. Even after closing she still brought me moving boxes and was checking in to see if there was anything else she could do. She was always looking out for my best interests. I don’t have a single complaint and would definitely recommend her! " -Adam W. Bailey

★★★★★
"Best realtor in UC! Valerie sold my house for top dollar in less than 3 weeks. What I appreciate the most is how on it she was, taking a lot of stress off of me. I highly recommend her to anyone that wants a real pro their real estate needs!! " -Suzanne L. 

★★★★★
"Valerie and her team took care of staging the house professionally and in a timely manner. Everything went to the goals we outlined with them. I would recommend their services to anybody that they do excellent work." -Dennis & Chris Season

★★★★★
"I’ve bought and sold several homes in my life and I have never worked with anyone as amazing as Valerie. It was one of the most unexpected thrills to see her create her magic in front of my eyes. I wish I owned more property, so I could work with Valerie again. She’s a Gem. " -R. Corder and Family

★★★★★
"I’ve worked with Valerie to both buy and sell homes in the San Diego area. I've used her services three times and will continue to do so. She is usually available or returns your call soon after. She is flexible enough with her schedule although she's a mother of three, very knowledgeable in all regions of San Diego, and has no problem explaining things to you over and over again. Buying a home with Valerie is a wonderful experience. Ask her tons of questions because she'll get the answer. Ask her for her honest opinion, because she will give an honest answer. Selling a home with her was even more pleasant as she managed to reach an agreement which was much more fortunate that I'd anticipated. I have no problem recommending this one!" -Daniel Chong

★★★★★
"We were all set to sell our home ourselves. Valerie convinced us it wasn’t worth the headache to try and do it ourselves. She walked us through the selling process step--step, and was patient and thorough responding to all of our questions. Valerie got almost $30,000 more than we thought we would get. We attribute everything to Valerie's hard work and attentive service. We thank her from the bottom of our hearts. " -Patrick and Jennifer

★★★★★
"I worked with Valerie for nearly 5 months and she was amazing! I was living in Northern California when I started my search for a home, Valerie was very helpful and accommodating, especially when we needed numerous inspections. Valerie has great attention to detail, she will keep your best interest in mind and will listen to what you need. I would highly recommend Valerie to anyone interested in finding their dream home. Thank You Valerie!" -Janeth

★★★★★
"We Didn't Think It Could Be Done - We would like to recognize the opportunity that we had working with Valerie Upham for the selling of our home and the purchase of our dream home. She demonstrated in every single step of the process not only care, but also a tremendous knowledge and she gave us direction in two complex transactions. It was through her professionalism and strong determination that the sale of our house in Vista was possible, a house that at the beginning we thought was going to be easy and fast, but the reality showed a completely different scenario due to neighborhood issues, and through each challenge Valerie made it possible. And on the other side was the purchase of our dream home which wasn’t easy to acquire because it was a short sale, but trusting Valerie throughout the process made it all possible. Thank you Valerie, for all your input in our business and you’re always rewarding personality. 
 " -Gabriela & Bill

★★★★★
"No One Does It Better! Selling a house is never easy because of so many factors involved in the process. I have to say that Valerie made this process incredibly easy and successful for me. Her professional and friendly approach to every detail makes you feel confident about your choice of selecting her as your agent. She has a wonderful team that helps you from start to end. Thank You for all of your help! " -Steve G.

★★★★★
"Thank you for a seamless transaction. Everyone in the family was quite impressed. I know you went an extra mile. You took care of all the stuff no one else wanted or knew how to do. You made it all look easy, when I know there was much work behind the whole production. " -The Bottom Family
