Team reviews

Valerie and her team helped my wife and I buy a home last month and we couldn't be happier. I was looking at homes on my own for years. We met Valerie at an private showing and we really connected with her. We didn't end up buying that house but we hired Valerie and she found us a house a couple of weeks later. We were able to see the home before the open house and within an hour of it hitting the market! She helped us negotiate the best price and get the proper repairs needed. She is extremely attentive, helpful, energetic, and absolutely great to work with. Her entire team was professional and very helpful. Special thanks to Lisa and Nick for helping us through this crazy process.. I absolutely recommend Torelli reality to anyone and I hope to buy future homes with Valerie's help!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $675K in Costa Mesa, CA.

I first met Valerie Torelli at one of her free community sponsored events…not sure if it was the Easter Egg Hunt or the Pumpkin Patch. In 2010, I called Valerie to give me a free estimate of the current value of our home. She was professional, polite and courteous. We decided not to sell at that time. In 2015, we wanted to sell our home and we called Valerie. She came out again to evaluate our home. There is a number of real estate agents in Costa Mesa, but we wanted someone we could trust and knew the area…..Valerie did not let us down and goes above and beyond her call of duty. It is easy to see why Torelli Realty is the #1 Realtor in Costa Mesa and we would highly recommend her. Her staff is very helpful and friendly and eager to answer any questions you may have.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $725K in Tustin, CA.

We used Valerie and Torelli Realty for the sale of our home in Tustin. From the start, she was amazing! She helped us decide what needed to be done to present the house for sale in the best light, while minimizing the costs of those fixes. She helped us price the house correctly and our home sold in the first week! We would highly recommend Valerie and her team to anyone needing to buy or sell their home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $700K in Costa Mesa, CA.

Valerie located an off-market home for my wife and myself in 2015. Her knowledge of real estate, desire to meet our home expectations, and work ethic allowed my wife and I to find a single family home in the desirable area of East Side Costa Mesa for less than $700k. We closed on time without any hassle. If you are committed to working with an agent of the highest integrity, look no further than Valerie Torelli, she will make it happen for you and your family!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $725K in Costa Mesa, CA.

Valerie is one of the best real estate agents we have ever met. We interviewed a couple agents and most of them just talked about their marketing strategies which were very similar to each others. Valerie went beyond that with her amazing ability to come up with many creative ideas to make our house look in its best condition. She even shared the cost for changing the house to the way she felt most attractive. We knew Valerie would be the right one to help us but we had never thought Valerie could sell our house in one day of showing. Valerie, thank you for the great work. You are the best.

Dear Nguyen Family, Your trust in me was so much appreciated. I know that you interviewed 4 other agents and that you allowed me to help you with this part of your life was so rewarding. I loved the before and after shots of your home and I am keeping it as an example of ways to make improvements in such a short period of time and for almost zero dollars. Thank you ever so much

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Costa Mesa, CA.

Wanted to write a review because we have known about Torelli for years having lived in Mesa Verde Valerie sold us our home on Oriole Drive years ago and we are currently in escrow to sell it and closing in a few weeks. It has been a long haul but Valerie and her team did open houses and one time had a neighborhood "pub crawl" from house to house to get a buyer and get interest going in the neighborhood. Her team has creative ideas to make sales happen. We had several offers on our home and we waited for our price and got it. Torelli never pushed us while we worked on getting our "ducks lined up" and our timing in order. We did not feel pushed on our negotiation back and fourth and felt Valerie got us a great price. She is even helping us with the moving logistics. R. Wong, Oriole Drive, Costa Mesa

Over the years my family and I have used Valerie for 2 purchases and 4 sales. She and her staff have been great in all respects. Their advice and support has made every transaction go well. They stayed on top of everything and kept us up to date on what happening. I have used her and her advice for over 30 years and will continue to.

Sold a home in 2014 in Paularino, Costa Mesa, CA 92626.

Valerie Torelli and her dedicated team of professionals set the bar miles high when it comes to helping buyers and sellers achieve their goals. Torelli Realty understands how personal home buying is and they are there to help each step of the way. Their industry knowledge and experience is vast and they are more than willing to share their wisdom. Living in the Mesa Verde community, I have seen the excellent work Torelli has achieved. My neighbors bought their house from Val 17 years ago and they still remember how wonderful she was to work with. Torelli gives so much back to our local community as well with all of the amazing events they put on year after year. These events really cement the community ties that we enjoy here in Mesa Verde. A+!

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Paularino, Costa Mesa, CA 92626

I had heard so much about Valerie from friends and colleagues and I was so impressed with how happy they were both as Buyers and Sellers. Having had my first exposure be the Torelli Realty community event for Halloween, it was no surprise that the detail and time and effort that was placed into those escrows was just as extensive as what she puts into the community events for Halloween, Christmas, and Easter. When the timing is right and I can buy in Mesa Verde (or that area) I cannot wait to call her and have her start showing me homes!
