Born into a family of Entrepreneurs, Valerie knew from a very early age she wanted to be in Real Estate. A High School graduate at 16, she utilized her time wisely to learn all the avenues involved in a Real Estate transaction. She did not know at the time, that taking these extra steps would set her apart and ultimately be a huge part of her success.
Valerie’s experience in the Mortgage Industry where she was mentored by one of the best in Virginia sprung her into Real Estate seamlessly. It did not take long for her to get noticed as her soft approach yet firm understanding of Contract’s later opened the opportunity to enter Property Management, administering a 400+ unit apartment complex in Tyson’s Corner. Her experience in Property Management and in the Mortgage industry not only taught her how to communicate effectively in all types of situations and transactions, but to thoroughly understand each part of the transaction. Her ability to explain and guide her clients through Buying, Renting or Selling effortlessly puts all at ease.

When she first started her Real Estate business, she created “Realtor to the Rescue”. Valerie believes that animals deserve a loving, warm place to call home too. With each transaction, a portion of proceeds’ benefit local animal shelters and charities. If you have any recommendations to where you would like Animal Rescue donations sent to, please let Valerie know.
