Hi Val & Jen, Thank you so incredibly much for your patience, your determination, your valuable counseling. The process of finding and buying a home with you was a better experience than I could have imagined. I’m so happy with my house! I’d love to have you over when the projects are completed. If you’re ever in the neighborhood please stop by! I’m there every day banging nails and loving life! Many thanks.

— Kate

Dear Val, Thank you for helping us with our first home purchase! We are beyond happy here! Much gratitude.

— Carrie & Hernan

Hi Valerie, Indeed a superb job by Val on this house sale. She coached Pat and me for 18 months on how to get our house ready for the market. Her recommendations and real estate savvy were dead on every time. We were most fortunate to get the recommendation to work with Val, and we will sing her praises to friends and colleagues.

— Bob & Pat

Val, Jennifer, & Cathy, Thank you so much for all of your guiding wisdom & incredible patience on our recent sale. We know it turned into a big pain after appearing to be a straight forward and easy transaction, and we very much appreciated having such a great team to navigate the situation on our behalf!

— Matt & Amanda

Jen, So glad I have you in my network. You and Val do such a good job.

— Dave

Dear Val, Jennifer, & Cathy, Thanks for all your effort in helping us find our home! We are both so very happy! We had no idea what a rollercoaster the process would be like. Each of you made it as smooth as possible, and at no time did we think you didn’t have our backs. If house hunting is a rollercoaster, you ladies are the best Dramamine we could have!

— Shiloh

Dear Val, Jennifer, & Cathy, You are all such an awesome team! We couldn’t have asked for a better group of folks to be the ones to find us our first home. Thanks again. We will never forget it!

— Beth

Val - Once again I find myself without words adequate to thank you for your amazing help with my moving process, let alone the awesome work you did to prepare and sell the house. I believe the authorities would have had to resort to hauling me away, frothing at the mouth, well before now, as I melted into an ineffectual puddle, overwhelmed by it all. You saved my life, and what shreds of sanity I still posess. Thank you so much! -Peter

— Peter

Val, Thank you so much for taking such great care of us. You've always been willing to go above and beyond what was expected and made the entire process so easy. We appreciate everything you've done. You are a joy to work with even though you never treated it as your job. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! You are wonderful! Best wishes, Craig, Andrea, & Alexis

— Craig, Andrea, & Alexis

Val, I wanted to thank you and Jennifer and Cathy for your hard work and great advice in helping us to sell our house. It certainly impressed us!

On behalf of my family, we wish you great success this year and the years to come! - Dennison Family

Dear Jennifer, Thank you so much for all the tasks-big and small that you have done with and for us in the past 2 months. We truly could not have done it without you! From your dedication to spend all Memorial Day weekend looking at 60+ houses, to writing up last minute offers while your mother waited for dinner, to meeting estimators, and then workers on our behalf over weeks, all while keeping us engaged long distance throughout, we sincerely thank you! You've played many roles throughout this process - all like a pro! We look forward to just being your "neighbor" now! With sincere thanks and gratitude, Jackie and Thomas
