I met Val Lathrop when I dropped in at one of her open houses. I immediately felt that she was honest, straight forward and interested in helping me. She called me several days later with some suggestions about houses I might be interested in, but did not pressure me or try to show me something she knew I wouldn't like. Val visited with my husband and me and we felt her warmth and concern for our condition. She is a local lady and knows about the history of the area as well as being aware of any problems that might be found in some parts of the areas. I always felt I could trust Val to be honest with me and found that I liked her personally as well as in a business capacity. She handled the sale of our large home and the purchase of a smaller one with knowledge and expertise that pleased us. I would trust Val to handle any future dealings in the real estate market in which I might be involved. You won't find a better agent than Val Lathrop.
