  • Val listed and sold my home

      Amazing knowledge, skills and interpersonal skills. Best of all, she listens to you and helps you achieve your dream home!

    • Val helped me buy a home

        Val was a huge help in our search for a home in San Carlos. She is very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and professional.

      • Val is an outstanding agent to work with. She is professional, caring, and patient. She always paid close attention to every little detail to make sure my family got exactly what we wanted. She is also a pleasure to work with- friendly, fun, and honest. I would highly recommend her to anyone- family and friends. She is the best.

      • Val just helped us sell our house in Emerald Hills. She is personable and really easy to work with, and helped us understand the best approach to maximize sale price. Very knowledgeable about the local real estate market, she helped us find the right target date for listing our house. She helped us invest in the most effective update projects, to raise the value of the house without wasting money that wouldn't provide a return. We had already moved out of the area, and Val's assistant, Sharon, was invaluable in helping us get work done on the house. When a bizarre emergency plumbing problem occurred, Sharon responded immediately and got someone out to fix it that afternoon before the house was damaged. One of the keys to getting a good price is getting people in the door at open houses and Val was great at that. Her marketing materials were gorgeous and included everything from the usual website and brochure to aerial drone photos. After we received a couple of offers Val helped us evaluate the offers and decide which one to accept. Her knowledge of the market, financing, contingencies, etc. was very helpful. All in all, the sale went smoothly and we're quite satisfied--I would highly recommend Val.

      • My wife and I just sold our first home which we purchased 12-years ago. We used Val Vandervort as our real estate agent and could not be more pleased with the entire process. I can be a bit high strung and Val was the perfect realtor to balance me out and always keep me calm and well informed. It's also not just Val though. She has an awesome team that works with her who handled much of the process; from home inspections and scheduling and showings, the whole 9 yards. They also have a wonderful network of folks from handymen, inspectors, gardeners, stagers, you name it.There were a number of times when we asked Val for her opinion on various things and we listened! She is a professional and knows what she is doing. Bottom line is we had a ton of traffic through our house and 29 offers with a final finish of 39% over asking price. Our only complaint was that we didn't have a half dozen more properties for Val to sell!!!!!
