Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in West Des Moines, IA.
Had the great pleasure of working with Valerie on our move to Des Moines from Omaha. Valerie had great knowledge of the area, and was able to direct us to the area that best fit our needs as far as work and kids and school districts.

Valerie showed us 40+ houses during our search and even took the Memorial day weekend to show us houses because we were in such a time crunch.

We are extremely happy with the service after the smile we have received from Valerie, as she stuck with us through a mold issue in our new home and pointed us in the right direction for all our needs of HVAC, Electrician and plumbers to make everything right in our new home!

I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Valerie to anyone moving in or to Des Moines. Even though we were probably a difficult customer because we wanted to find the perfect home Valerie stuck in there and saw it through!

Thanks Valerie!!

Bought a home in 2013.
Valerie was always available whenever we needed her. She offered a lot of advice, but always let us make our own decisions. She did everything possible to make sure we were happy with our decision.

Sold a home in 2013.
When I decided to sell my house I reached out to Valerie - what a great decision that was!  Valerie went way above and beyond what I would consider the normal duties of a Realtor.  I was prepared for a high stress experience and, with Valerie's help, it was anything but. 

I can't thank her enough for all of her hard work and would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for a highly professional, committed, knowledgeable, hardworking Realtor to help with the purchase and/or selling of a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Urbandale, IA.
Valerie did a fantastic job when we were going through the home buying process. As first time home buyers, my wife and I had a lot of questions. Her response time to answer emails, phone calls, etc was truly excellent. While this process can be a stressful one, she made it so much better by always getting back to us right away. I can only imagine how much more stressful it would have been if we had to wait multiple hours to get a response. In addition, she was extremely patient in both explaining the process as well as showing us multiple homes until we found the one that was the right fit. I will not hesitate to recommend Val to anyway looking to buy or sell a house in the DSM area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Southwestern Hills, Des Moines, IA.
Valerie did a great job. She was willing to show us the house she was representing, and when we decided to buy the house she guided us through all the steps needed to get the transaction done quickly. We requested a rush job as we wanted to move in asap. She made sure we did not rush to fast and make any mistakes on what should be done. Since we did not have to finance she said it would make it a lot easier and faster. She made sure we had things checked out that were important and helped us find good people to do the inspections needed and problems taken care of. Even we had moved in, she as called to see how we liked the house and if there was anything she could do to help. Valerie as done a great job and we really appreciate it.

Helped me rent a Condo home in Clive, IA.
Valerie is a hard working realtor who is quite knowledgeable. She took into account the features I was interested in and then found properties that fit those features. When we were unable to purchse a home, she found a wonderful house to rent with an option to buy.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in West Des Moines, IA.
Valerie has very good local knowledge of the Des Moines area and suburbs having lived here her entired life and has been in business for a while ,also being a family affair as her mother is also an agent. Valerie was very responsive on any question I had and would go out of her way to have an answer immediately. i could call at anytime of the day. She has very good expertise of what homes or comparables are selling for in our area and knowledge of the real estate business. Valerie made the transition from selling my home and buying another one very easy and every thing closed on time. She also is a good negotiator as we went through a couple of conteroffers and both parties came to a agreeable price in a tough market in 2010.I would highly recommend using Valerie as your realtor because if I sell my home again I would use her again,

Showed home in 2011 in Merle Hay, Urbandale, IA 50322.
Valerie helped me look for a home in Des Moines before I decided to relocate to another city. She was amazingly knowledgeable, helpful, and quick to return calls and notify me of possible homes. I'm only sorry I wasn't able to stay in Des Moines long enough to complete a home purchase. Would definitely contact her if I return to the Des Moines area and am in the market for a house. Would also definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.
