It was in summer 2010 that we were in a hurry to find and purchase a home near Palo Alto. We had a particular request to have the house with a large backyard since we had a very cute gentle giant at the time. Valerie, referred to us by another Alain Pinel agent, jumped right into the task. Since she knows the local area very well, she promptly gave us the most needed information that helps us make the quick, final decision. Valerie also helped to make the after-sale process smoothly. Now, 4 years later, not only we enjoy living in this house, but also we find one thing that most enchants us is that it has appreciated a lot since we purchased. Thanks! Valerie. We can't be more happy than listening to your advice.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.675M in Duveneck - St. Francis, Palo Alto, CA.
Nearly three years ago, I decided to move to Redmond WA to be near my daughter and her family. I had met Valerie at an open house in my Palo Alto CA neighborhood and was impressed with her knowledge and manner, and after her very thorough presentation, I decided to give her my listing. She was a tremendous help in suggesting contractors to refinish hardwood floors, remodel a bedroom, paint, and other miscellaneous things that needed to be accomplished in order to get the highest price possible for my home. She shepherded this process for me and made sure my home showed at its best -- including staging it inside and out. As a result of this, plus her real estate agent contacts, we had 15 offers from which to choose and my house sold for considerably over asking -- for cash, and with no contingencies!
