Ratings & Reviews

Valerie has been in this market for many years and knows the nuances of each neighborhood. Her insights on how different properties would possibly work for us (based on what we told her our interests were) definitely helped us make a decision that we are very happy with. We would definitely recommend her to anybody who was needing an agent to either buy or sell in this market.

A very informed agent, knows the area very well. She was willing to go above and beyond to make this deal happen. She is helpful, and works for her clients.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Arnold, CA.

I needed to sell a home quickly and I was quite apprehensive about being able sell the home within the desired time frame. Valerie is very knowledgeable and professional, and a pleasure to work with. This was my first attempt selling a home and Valerie walked me through the entire process. Her can do attitude, patience, and encouragement took a lot of that apprehension away. I'm still amazed at how fast the house sold. We listed the home in mid-October and we just closed the sale in mid-December. Thank you so very much, Valerie. I've learned so much from this experience. Valerie is an excellent realtor and I highly recommend her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Arnold, CA.

Valerie did an absolutely fantastic job helping us buy a house. She made time for any showings we wanted. She's been in the Arnold area for a long time and has a lot of local contacts that came in handy. The house we purchased was a short sale. This was our second short sale and the 9th real estate transaction my wife and I have been involved in. I can honestly say this was the smoothest and most pleasant one of the bunch. Valerie did a great job. We got a great deal too!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Arnold, CA.

When I was looking for a house in the Arnold area last spring, I started looking on Zillow, then tried once to drive around the area, but finally decided I needed a buyer’s agent if I was serious about finding the right house. I contacted Valerie based on positive reviews on Zillow. I didn’t really know what to expect. I was afraid that if I didn’t know exactly what I wanted and make up my mind quickly, that an agent would be annoyed with me. Valerie wasn't like that. Based on a short interview to determine what I was looking for, she showed me several houses in the area. In the weeks after that first time, we talked and emailed about what I liked about the houses I had seen, and she continued to send me listings of houses newly on the market. She was very patient with me, even though I really didn't know exactly what I wanted when I first contacted her. In fact, I think it was her questions about what I did and didn't like about various houses that helped me zero in on what I wanted. Once I did find a house, she and her whole office were very good at guiding me through the whole process. I have no reservations about recommending her to anyone looking for a house.

Sold a home in 2013 in Lake Alpine, CA 95223.

Living ou of state, I had not seen these two lots since my father bought them when I was just a child. Valerie took photo's and gave a good market analysis of what other lots were selling for in this one area. I was pleasantly surprised that Valarie had a buyer in short order one month for $5000. less than the listing amount. The transaction went through easily and was handled in a very business like manner. I would certainly recommend Valerie Olson to anyone looking to sell their improved or unimproved property.

Bought a home in 2013 in Forest Meadows, Murphys, CA 95247.

Valerie had a good knowledge of Calveras County and the local communities. Within minutes of enquiring about a home for retirement in the Murphys area on Zillow Valerie was in contact. She showed me several homes in the area but we eventually settled on the initial property that was of interest to us. We live in Southern CA so it was not east to make too many trips but she was able to complete all negotiations and closing remotely and very quickly.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Mountain Ranch, CA.

Valerie helped us buy a 2nd home in Mountain Ranch. We were originally looking to buy a manufactured home on a large plot of land. The home was in bad shape and we eventually fell out of escrow on it. Valerie was with us on that deal, then she showed us other properties all over the area and finally represented us when we settled on a property we liked. Her handling of the process was very clean. She was on top of everything. Her network of contacts were all very good from home inspection to financing. What stood out was that as she showed us properties, if she didn't recommend it, it wasn't worth looking at. She still took us to those "b" list properties anyway. They may still be on the market. Valerie was willing to put in the work to be able to show good properties, show us the bad ones we asked about, and make sure everything went smoothly once we decided to make an offer.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Camp Connell, CA.

We live in the Bay Area and wanted to purchase a second home. Valerie understood the time restraints it was going to take to seal the deal. So the very few times we drove up to arnold, Valerie had all the paperwork ready to go. Made the process so easy. I couldn't believe how much she did for us! When the sale was over and we picked up our keys, she have us a really thoughtful card and gift certificate to a restaurant in town! She is "good people" and you don't see them that much anymore! So to make a long story short.... I WILL ALWAYS buy and sell with Valerie!
