Questions and Answers:
What if we just want to drive around and look at new communities by ourselves, and we visit models, can you still represent us?
Yes, but you need to tell the builder at your first contact that you are working with a Realtor and give them my name.
Wouldn't we get more of a break from the builder without them having to pay your commission?
No, when you go in alone, they may tell you they will give you extra incentives if you don't have a Realtor, but this is not true. They want to sell their homes and a Realtor will help you to negotiate for the best deal possible. The salesperson, is usually not licensed and they are working strictly for the Seller, not you!
Why should I get a Pre-Approval, I am just in the beginning stages of looking for a home?
Getting a mortgage has changed drastically! There are many programs out there now that can help you and put money in your pocket! Mortgage experts can access your situation and find out which programs are best for you. Also, Sellers are well aware of the value of a Pre-approval. They will give a lot of weight to offers received with one, so you can save yourself from the disappointment of losing the home you want.
Why is it better to get a local Mortgage Broker, when I have a bank I deal with already?
Local Mortgage Experts are aware of incentives that apply to the County and State and vary from state to state.

Valerie responded to our request for a low commission. We were looking for someone who would be willing to work with us and responding to that request showed she was interested in helping her clients. Valerie was more than willing to try different strategies to help move our home in a very difficult market. What really impressed us the most about Valerie is that she went out of her way to check on our home when we weren't there, and even went in to lower our thermostat when we forgot to turn down our heat. We felt that this personalized attention set her apart from the rest of the agents. I would not hesitate to recommend Valerie to a friend knowing that she can be trusted to watch a property as if it were her own and listens to your ideas as well as making valuable suggestions. She never gave up and worked as hard for us as she would for herself in a market that was extremely difficult.
Valerie was very patient with me and was very knowledgable. She was able to answer all of my questions (the million or so that I had) and she never made me feel like a pest. She held my hand and made what could have been a very stressful process much easier. I would definitely recommend her to anyone that needed an agent with no hesitation. Thank you so much.

Thank you again for all your help in making our purchase a pleasure.
The entire process was stress free which allowed us to focus more on enjoying our home rather than worrying about a thousand little deatils. I would highly recommend your services and we will certainly keep you in mind for any future purchases. Take care and enjoy the summer!!!

"My fiancee and I just purchased a home in Rehoboth Beach from Valerie. She was very knowledgeable about the area and has a realistic understanding of the Market and the Economy. She is results oriented and can "Get The Job Done". In this difficult real estate market, whether you are buying or selling, you are doing yourself a disservice if you don't call Valerie first.
