Bought a home in 2014.

My husband and I had contacted Valerie to help us look for a new home in central Florida. We live in Brazil and China so we knew it was not going to be easy. However, when we met with Valerie (and her husband) she showed us homes in Celebration, Lake Nona, and Windermere and she gave us lots of valuable information about these areas. If you are looking to buy or sell a home in any of these areas do not hesitate to contact Valerie Thomas. She is literally the most professional, hardworking Realtor you will find anywhere in Central FL. In Windermere we found a builder for a brand new home that would be exactly what we were looking for. We would have never found our dream home without the assistance of Valerie. I can vouch that she has been a true professional and is helping us non-stop to work through issues with our mortgage lender, and, also in helping us with the builder. If you don’t think you need a Realtor when you are purchasing a new home you are wrong! You will not save a penny if you don’t have an agent on your side, and who are you going to call if an issue arises during the process and after the closing? The sales agents work for the builder and you need somebody that cares about you, has your best interest in mind, and will guide and direct you during the entire process. We could not purchase a home without Valerie, especially since we don’t live in the area to monitor the process. Valerie is fantastic, and, in our opinion is the best realtor we have ever been in contact with in the U.S. We could define her as a workaholic, because no matter what day or time of day she is always very prompt whether through VIBER or emails to respond to our questions and give us more support than we ever imagined. We definitely will refer our friends, co-workers, and family to Valerie and her looking forward to having Valerie and her husband over as guests in our beautiful new home to Celebrate.  More Less

Silvia and Rodrigo, I am speechless at your kindness and amazing words towards my assistance as your Realtor. I feel blessed beyond measure & so honored to be your Realtor of choice especially when you have hundreds to pick from. I believe 100% that God puts people in your path for a reason. Andre' & I were so excited the moment we met both of you in Lake Nona. When we walked in the home in Windermere that you ended up purchasing both of you were beaming and that made all the time together so well worth every minute. I remember you saying this is exactly the floor plan that we were looking for and that made me smile ear to ear. I am thrilled it worked out so well. We are so happy for both of you! Thank goodness for all the technology that we have to communicate with each other during the building process of your home. Because of the 12 hour time difference several days I was waking up texting or talking via Viber and then finishing my day w/ updates. Blessings Always, Valerie

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in South Bend, IN.

This spring, I purchased a home “to be built” in Lake Nona, Florida.  I was so lucky to have connected with the Valerie Thomas team from La Rosa Realty in Celebration!  From the very beginning stages of searching for the “right” place to live, through the construction process, and all the way to the closing day (and after), Valerie and her partner, Kim Horvath, were there to answer or research any questions I had, assist with negotiations, and keep me assured and calm throughout the  entire process.   I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE!  Their expertise about the area was phenomenal, they were always available, their communication skills were excellent, and they were willing to problem solve through any issues that came up.  I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY NEW HOME!  Thank you, Valerie and Kim!!!!  More Less

Chuck, Without a doubt it was our pleasure helping you. Kim and I do make an amazing professional team and we both were honored to be at your service and help you find the perfect place for you to call home in the Lake Nona Medical City area. It makes it nice that one of us are always available to assist our customers via, phone, text or email. With our assistant Vesna it is like having 3 people help you through the home buying or selling process. If you are exicted now what until the Eagle Creek town center opens and then the amazing Lake Nona Town Center next near. As you know you are in the hottest market in Central FL if not the country. You are one smart man making the step to secure your retirement home & to escape the winters for now before this area is untouchable. All the best, Your Favorite Realtors for life, Valerie and Kim Thanks for your referrals too! See you soon.

Bought a home in 2014.

Our recent purchase was in Laureate Park / Lake Nona in the heart of the medical city. In last 20 years I've bought and sold something like 25 homes. This has given me lots of experience with real estate agents. What I've learned is there are four requirements to being a great agent. They are: 1) Passion 2) Knowledge 3) Listening skills and; 4) Responsiveness. Valerie has all of this and more! Honestly she is the best of the best in Central FL. She has huge energy and passion and really knows her markets and the many "ins and outs" of real estate transactions. She took the time to get to know us and to understand what we were looking for and impressed us with showing us properties and sharing ideas that directly related to our needs. She also is very, very good at responding to our phone calls and emails. She was outstanding at getting back to us quickly and following up on every discussion and every commitment. She misses nothing and will be with you from contract to closing and beyond!! She showed us great properties; shared great ideas; and helped us find the perfect property. During the entire process she was always at our side and made the entire process easy and smooth. I can honestly say she is the best agent I've ever worked with and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. You won't find another agent with her energy and dedication to find exactly what you are looking for. Thanks Valerie You Are Amazing!! Drs. Lou and Carina Grasso  More Less

Dr Carina and Lou Grasso as you know it was an absolute pleasure helping you with your recent purchase of your brand new beautiful home in Lake Nona / Medical City. Both of you are amazing people and I am honored to have your trust in me as your Realtor of choice when you have hundreds to choose from!! We are so excited about moving to this area ourselves when our home is finished in Laureate Park. Lake Nona is the best thing that has happened to Central FL in a long time. I look forward to helping you or your friends in the near future. Thanks for the great review. Abundant Blessings Always, Valerie & Andre'
