She makes herself available for text messages and/or phone calls about 18 hours per day.

She not only performed this task but also went above and beyond to make sure both deals were successful. She remained positive, encouraging and confident through the entire process and as a result - I am proud to say I am a satisfied homeowner . I would recommend Valerie to anyone interesting in procuring the services of a competent agent and I know her experience and knowledge of the business would make you just as satisfied as I am.
