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.

This is my first move to another state and Valerie helped make that move less stressful than it could have been.

She has extensive knowledge of all the challenges that may come up and the ability to work with many types of people involved in the sale. She offered very sound advice on every step of the process.

Sherri Nussbaum

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.


Working with Kim Kalina, she has the patience of a saint, she is funny, loyal, and dedicated to her friends and craft.

Bonnie Moreno

Always very informative and doing everything she can in finding what a buyer wants.

Great communication and always very upfront and honest. Great to work with throughout the entire process of our home build/closing.

David Bruner

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 DoBrava, is a real stickler for following proto call. You can rely on her work being accurate and precise. and for her to follow through. Valerie, helped me sell my moms house even thou the buyers were difficult to deal with. She hung in there and pulled through to the end right up to signing. Our mother is elderly and not in good health. Valerie went out of her way to make the process go easy on our mother who was very upset over the sale of her home of 53 years. Valerie is now helping my wife and I sell our home of 36 years and is helping with negotiations on a new place. I would recommend Valerie to any person even if I didn't know them. Thanks Valerie for your diligence."

"We spent 2 years looking for the right house. Valerie was patient, helpful, and ready to look at a house with a moments notice. We finally found our house and with her help and the awesomeness of Tom Hammon at Trademark Mortgage we are now living our dreams. They were there for us every step of the way. Even going so far as to answer the phone late at night to answer any questions I had. I am proud to have worked with them and am also proud to call them friends."

"My husband and I were extremely fortunate to have Valerie as our buying agent. Getting into the competitive housing market to buy our first home was an intimidating prospect. Valerie expertly navigated us through every step, enabling us to find exactly what we were looking for, staying within our budget, and helping us to seal the deal with ease.She always had our best interest in mind, including suggesting other options when she thought we could find a better match.Once we found the house we wanted, Valerie worked magic with helping prepare the offer to make it as compelling as possible. It worked too, as we successfully purchased at asking price and the seller's paid all closing. I highly recommend Valerie."

"Valerie is topnotch.. She knows her real estate and only wants the best for her clients. I consider Valerie also a friend as she is very warming and always over for all. Each client is special to her as I experienced that first hand. Valerie took countless hours either on the road, phone, email, etc to find me My Home... It was nice to know she is out to do what is right for her clients not just make a sale! Valerie will always be who I recommended for anyone as she has no distance she will not travel to find anyone's Home!"

"Valerie was a huge help in finding my first home. She was responsive and available any day of the week, persistent, and was very clear and straightforward during the entire process. The trait that separates Valerie from other real estate agents is that she is one to cut out the ‘BS’ if you will, and will tell you and the other parties involved ‘how it is.’ That was very helpful in such a competitive and fast-paced environment. Anyone looking to buy a home should most definitely use Valerie. Thank you!"
