Valerie is the true example of dedication, patience and true love to her profession.

In this difficult times of an unstable market, she was always on our side. Her patience went beyond, she never loses her cool. She stayed there to show us countless of house until we could find the one. She is resourceful, so she knows a thing or two with lenders, inspectors, appraisal etc you can’t go wrong with her. Our favorite of all times.

Valerie is awesome. She actually was my realtor when I bought the house I just sold. Every transaction action was very NOT painful. Valerie will listen to your needs and wants and not just try to sell you ANY house. I had dealt with other realtors which all I can say is they always wanted me to buy any house. Valerie is a true friend and will always try to fully do what is best for you. In my eyes you will never find a more passionate Realtor.

I was so lucky to have Monica as my realtor.

She went above and beyond to help find the perfect house for me and my family. She was always available to answer any of my random questions, or to show me a house last minute. After the search ended, she was there every step of the way... Even after closing. I found her knowledgeable, patient, dedicated to giving the best service and caring enough to make sure we got the right house. I have already recommended her to friends. She’s the best.

David Bruner

I am a first time home buyer and Valerie helped so much with my constant questions and eventual first home purchase.

My first two realtors didn't seem to have time for my purchasing budget but Valerie always made time for me. She made sure my questions were answered and understood in a quick and timely manner. This was all especially helpful in a very volatile market that changes and moves on in a snap. I am happy with my first home purchase experience, thanks to Valerie, and I have already recommended her group to friends moving to Texas.


Valerie was nothing but professional.

Excellent communication and answered all my questions as they came up. She truly made buying my first house an easy task. I will definitely be recommending her to my friends.
