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

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Celebration, FL.
This is the second time I have used Valerie Thomas for my real estate needs. This time I sold this house and bought a new house. Because of the marketing and Valerie's knowledge of our area my house sold in six hours. She guided me through the process of purchasing my new home and answered every question and addressed every concern I had in a timely manner. Valerie addresses any issues that may arise also in a timely manner. Her customers are her first and foremost priority. I am always impressed with her knowledge of the industry and her tenaciousness in representing her customers.

Jody, As you know it was all God's perfect timing!! With God all things are possible and he guided and directed us through the entire process. As always it is my pleasure to guide and direct my customers to accomplish their goals and dreams. It was a true blessing to sell your home in Celebration within hours and of course help you purchase a new one in beautiful Lake Nona so we will be neighbors again soon. I think you can take a girl out of NJ but you can't take the Jersey out of her. LOL As you know I will do whatever it takes to help my customers 150% for them to get the most for their current home if selling and the best deal possible when purchasing a home. God has gifted me with amazing negotiating skills and to help me with my customers and I am not shy about using them. Thanks so much for your business and the amazing review. All the best! Valerie

We cannot say enough amazing things about Valerie. She aided us three years ago when we were looking for our home and recently when we sold it. She is extremely professional, courtesy, and above all personable. She is her knowledgeable of the Florida area and very easy to work with. In addition, she makes your priority, hers, selling our home in less than 30 days.

Bought a home in 2014.
We are so grateful we found Valerie. Our story...we started exploring the idea of a second home/rental property early in January. We are from the northeast and this thought of a second property was a new adventure for us. We spoke to a couple realtors and Valerie was extremely helpful in talking through our wants and challenging us with good questions to help us determine if this indeed was the right choice for us. Her response time was amazing. We had A LOT of questions as we didn't want to go into this investment without being confident in our decision. She answered every single one way beyond our expectations. We worked together to ensure our trip to FL would be efficient as it was also our family vacation. We spent part of 2 days looking at homes and by the end, we felt extremely confident in our choice...and then we learned there was another offer on the table. Valerie worked hard in negotiations to get us our amazing new house. We are so thankful we found her.

Joan and Mike, I am speechless at your amazing review.

We with it is more important that I make my customers happy than anything else and it appears that I have accomplished that. It was a true blessing helping you find the best home and to ensure that we had a smooth closing as well. Being from NJ it does help me during the negotiation process. I pray that you and your family get the opportunity to enjoy your beautiful home for many years to come. Thank you for wonderful review and we look forward to seeing you during one of your visits to the area. Abundant Blessings Always, Valerie & Andre'

Sold a home in 2014.
Valerie took over the sale listing of our house in Kissimmee after being on the market with another agent for over 5 months. She did some very creative and unconventional marketing that ended up working almost instantly as it developed a cash buyer and a closing within ten days! She was very informative and the communication was great. I couldn't be more satisfied and I would highly recommend her to others. Thanks Valerie!

Michele, As you know it was my pleasure and honor to help you get a solid CASH contract on your home so quickly!! Internet advertising is amazing!! I am thrilled that it came together so quickly for you and Steve. After waiting 5+ months and no contract must have been beyond frustrating!! I am blessed that I have numerous websites to market homes and get them sold quickly! Our company is big into technically and social media and the best marketing sites as well. Andre’ and I are both looking forward to seeing you in the near future so we can celebrate the sale of your home so quickly!! Try to stay warm this winter and send some more buyers from the northeast down here that want to escape the cold. Thanks again for your trust and confidence in me as your Realtor. All the best to both of you! Valerie & Andre’

John and Kathy, It was such a blessing to sell your home so quickly!! I am thrilled you didn't accept the first offer that was presented 3 days after listing your home. Thank you so much for all your hard work preparing your home for all the showings. It was team work for sure to get it sold so quickly! I am super excited about your new home in Laureate Park / Lake Nona on the "Mew". Minto Homes are the best of the best and I know both of you will be very happy especially when the fitness center opens and of course the future town center too. Thank you so much for your trust in me as your Realtor in Celebration and Lake Nona too. That means so much to me. Abundant Blessings, Valerie

Bought a home in 2014.
From the first time I met Valerie I knew she would be efficient and professional. There was never a time that I asked her a question that she did not respond immediately and if she did not know the answer she found out and got right back to me. My experience with Valerie was outstanding. I have dealt with a lot of realtors over the years and she was top notch. I would reccomend Valerie to anyone and I can assure you that you will not be dissapointed. Valerie is a winner in the real estate arena...

Bought a home in 2014.
Valerie was a phenomenal partner as my wife and I sold our home in Celebration and built a new home in Windermere. Valerie has such a great knowledge of the Orlando's attractions area and maintains strong relationships with other agents in the area.

When we started working with Valerie, we knew that we wanted to stay in close proximity to Walt Disney World for work purposes, but we weren't familiar with many other areas besides Celebration. She patiently took us to many neighborhoods in the Winter Garden and Windermere areas until we found a community which was a great fit for us, and she maintained great communication with us through our almost year-long process.

Valerie was always so quick to respond to a text message or a phone call with her expertise and opinions. She helped us with advice on how to prepare our Celebration home for showings and provided a great online resource for us to keep track of the relevant documents for selling and buying our homes. Whenever we were in doubt or needed an update, Valerie was there for reassurance and help.

When we had some issues with our builder and the lot for our new home, Valerie was a great advocate and persisted to get our issues resolved very favorably. Any homebuyer would want to be working with a professional communicator with a feisty New Jersey personality!

Jeff it was my pleasure and honor to help you and Ally to sell your home here in Celebration and purchase a gorgeous home in "Windermere". Now you will need to get a butler for your fancy address. I can't wait to see your home after Ally and her Mom put their amazing finishing touches on it. Thank you soooo much for the wonderful review. I am thrilled that in the long run it all turned out well and that you actually ended up with a much better location and larger lot then we started with. BTW I love your last sentence. I was laughing out loud! Even Andre' said that fits you to a T. I have to do everything in my power to protect my customers and I am thrilled that you felt that you had an advocate. The Jersey only comes out in when it is necessary. May you have many many years of happiness in your beautiful home. Thanks again for your trust in me as your Realtor on both transactions. Abundant Blessings Always, Valerie (and Andre') & Vesna too. :)
