I Was in a Very Difficult Short Sale

"Mrs. Newson was an awesome realtor. I was in a very difficult short sale. The original realtor opted out of completing my deal in the middle of negotiations. Valerie Newson stepped in and was professional as well as patient. She was able to close my short sale deal despite a difficult and challenging situation. My family and I am grateful and looking forward to moving on. I would recommend her to all of my friends and family. Not only for short sales, but for any other needs they may have

Valerie was Amazing!!!

"Valerie was amazing!!! She was so knowledgeable about the home buying process and stuck through it with us until the keys were in our hands. This was my first home, so I was extremely nervous and uncomfortable with the whole idea of home ownership. My journey for finding our new home was quite enjoyable and I knew I made the best Realtor choice. Her knowledge was extensive and when you deal with her you can see that she has mastered her profession. I felt like my family had known Valerie for years. I would definitely recommend her for your home-buying needs. I would truly like to say thank you so much Val for helping make the dream of home ownership possible."

I Really Valued the Total Education I Received From Valerie

"I was a first time home buyer. Very afraid, guarded and very intimidated by the real estate Market; I had no working knowledge of the process at all. The thing I liked and really valued about Valerie is the total education I received. Val even went as far as to inspect the properties and found what I was looking for prior to me viewing.This was an added convenience, seeing that I was living on the west side and was looking for a home in the southern suburbs. Valerie went above and beyond what she had to do! I recall her driving from a showing way on the north side to pick up my earnest money; just a great person to do business with. I had an awesome experience with Val. The one thing that I was so very pleased with is that everything she said about our deal played out to the letter- no changes or surprises at closing time. To describe Val, her assistant and my overall experience in a word would be simply a joy or as the kids would say she was the "BOMB!"

Stayed in Contact with me Almost Daily

"I used Valerie as my agent for my first home purchase. I visited a couple realtors before her but she was the one that came across as most knowledgable, she explained a lot to help me understand things that I didn't know since it was my first purchase. She would email me listings on a daily basis of the homes that fit my criteria (mainly foreclosures), and it was a lot for where I was looking to buy. Whereas I felt the other realtors were holding back certain properties or just did not have all the information on what I was looking for. The other thing is that I felt like she did a very good job on communicating with me, I was in a rush for the '09 first time buyers credit and she understood and stayed in contact with me almost daily. I found my home and closed in a little less than a month. I recommend her to all my family and friends and plan to use her on my next purchase

Always quick to answer phone calls or emails, and always had our interests in mind. Overall, she remained extremely focused, professional, and friendly.
