Ratings & Reviews

We found a home in Eagle Creek that we were interested in seeing, and Valerie was the listing agent. We called her to ask for a showing of the property, and from that moment on she guided us through the process of purchasing the home. We had a difficult situation with the lender we chose that resulted in at least a week of constant setbacks and disappointments that delayed our closing date and caused havoc with our moving schedule. Valerie was our rock - she was relentless in dealing with our lender to get the closing done as quickly as possible. She truly cares about her clients - she always took the time to listen to our frustrations (and there were many), kept us calm, and made us feel like we were her top priority. She is amazing!

Lura and Mike, It was my honor and pleasure to help you purchase your golf villa in the Lake Nona area. Sorry about the situation about the lender but good things come to those who wait. I am glad that I could be your ROCK and I do tend to be relentless that is for sure. As the saying goes you can take a girl out of New Jersey but you can't take the NJ out of her. Andre' and I are now thrilled to have both of you as friends too. I greatly appreciate you noticing how much I do care about all my customers. As usual I had lots of friends and family praying that we would close so you could move into your perfect golf villa. May you have many many years of happiness together in your new home. Abundant Blessings, Valerie

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Lake Nona South, Orlando, FL.

For the first-time house buyers.. I am writing to tell you how much I really enjoyed buying my first home with Valerie Thomas. As a first time buyer, you know how difficult to find a right house, lender, insurance, inspection, etc. Even though I had previous experience of dealing with real estate agents, it was really hard to find a right person who can consider everything from your side. Not until I met Valerie Thomas. I did not know any agent, and so I randomly called her to see a house at Laureate Park, Lake Nona. When I first met her, I could sense that you had a strong experience in this field. Of course, I could tell that she was the one who has the most listings around Laureate Park area. From this moment, I asked her to show me some houses. She picked some houses, and she gave me some good advice on which house has a good value or not. If a house seems to have a single problem, she notified me and gave me a brief estimate to fix it. It was really helpful. I think I am extremely picky on choosing a house. My major concern was the direction of biggest window in house. It should face “direct” south, and the house should be bright during the daytime. The house shouldn’t be more than 5 years old, and interior shouldn’t have severe wear and tear. The space between my house and neighbor should be wide enough so that I can enjoy my privacy. The house should be very close to school bus stop. The house should be ready for move-in. After searching for a suitable house for five months, she found me one? Once I decided to buy the house, this is the place where Valerie really shines. As soon as I decide, she made a contract, get signed, and finished contract within 24 hours. When I had some trouble with seller, she was the one who fought for me. She wins all the time? When I asked her that I was looking to purchase some furniture from neighbors, she searched the area and found some furniture for me. When I was not sure about process, I was not worried because I can get the answer from Valerie within 5 minutes. Now I am supposed to close in few days. For those who seek to buy a house, find Valerie. You will enjoy working with her. If I buy another house, I will definitely work with Valerie. When I sell my house? You don’t have to ask me. It’s Valerie.  More Less

Shawn, Your review is amazing and I greatly appreciate your kindness and trust in me as your Realtor now and in the future! We are thrilled that you are going to be our neighbors in Laureate Park. I was bound and determined to find you the perfect home. As you know it wasn't an easy task to meet all your requirements but it happened and I couldn't be more excited for you. I think it is that Jersey Girl in me that makes always wants to WIN! LOL Everything about your home is wonderful and I know you "almost" settled for another neighborhood but it was meant for you to be part of this amazing community and for you to meet lots of new friends too! We will be celebrating after your closing for sure and thanks a million for not giving up and I am glad that you can see that I treat every customer with great respect and utmost consideration. I honestly do try to be available and resolve any questions promptly and provide outstanding customer service. Abundant Blessings, Valerie

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Orlando, FL.

We have now used Valerie to both buy a home and she recently helped us sell a home. She is a real "go-getter" and is, without a doubt, the most responsive agent we've ever worked with. In Orlando, we would not even consider using another agent. Text or call her and she usually responds within minutes. She was constantly marketing our house and we'd often come home to find fresh balloons tied to our mailbox, or see signs in our neighborhood. She sold our home much quicker than we expected and we were absolutely delighted with the price she got for us. She was always on top of every detail and we always felt that we were her top priority. She is awesome.  More Less

Joyce and Justin, Thank you both for your kind words and trust in me to be your Realtor of choice in Orlando. It was my honor and pleasure to help you purchase and also sell your beautiful home. It made it easy to sell so quickly when you keep your home in pristine condition. You are the ideal seller because as you know during showings people actually thought it was a model home and that makes my job ten times easier!! I do try to respond to all my customers as quickly as possible and I appreciate you noticing that as well. I am thrilled with you that we were able to achieve top dollar for your home. Thanks a million for an amazing review and we wish you the best of luck in your new home as well. Abundant Blessings, Valerie
