Val was amazing. She guided us through the rather stressful experience of purchasing our first home with grace. We always felt like she had our backs. From pointing out irregularities with disclosures, to knowing exactly where to come in with our bids, Val nailed it. We’re so happy with our new home! Should we ever move, Val will be our first choice.

Valentina helped us buy our first condo in the frustrating and chaotic market of San Francisco. She is exceptionally thoughtful, honest, and patient. She spent a great amount of time getting to now us and our priorities which saved us so much time later when we needed to act quickly to put an offer. If it wasn't for her flexibility and 24/7 availability during the holiday season, we wouldn't be living in our beautiful home today.

If you're stumbling onto this website looking for a realtor, you have stuck solid gold. We are recent first-time home buyers and I truly believe that if Valentina wasn't our realtor, we would still be renting in the San Francisco market. Valentina had a very clear vision as to what we were looking for and her persistency to find us the right place was unstoppable. She is savvy and incredibly realistic; she won't lead you down the wrong path or get your hopes up. And once you're locked into the negotiation aspect of home buying, there is no better ally than Valentina. She is intelligently aggressive, knows when to turn right or left.

Valentina helped us achieve a life goal harder than any other I can imagine: buying a single family home in SF (without the resources to pay all cash and 40% over asking). AND in our dream neighborhood. She is whip smart, has a compendium knowledge of SF real estate, doesn't shy away from hard problems, brings an engineer's analytic brain - and the edge that comes with it - to the real estate market. On top of that, she is so fun to work with - we loved collaborating with her. Our real estate deal was pretty complex and not only did she not seem to mind that, she seemed to thrive on it. She also hooked us up with an amazing broker who helped us close in 10 days(!) over Thanksgiving. She is magic.

If you are considering selling or buying a home in the San Francisco Bay Area, do not bother talking with any other agents. Valentina is by far the most competent real estate professional I've ever had the pleasure of interacting with. This market is incredibly difficult, but Valentina's expertise and advice along the way allowed me to achieve what I thought was an impossible dream - home ownership in SF! I cannot recommend her enough.

Valentina is the most hard-working, detail-oriented, thoughtful, trustworthy and personable real estate broker you can imagine. Through her diligence and relationship-building, she helped us identify and purchase a home that was not on the open market. Thanks to Valentina we found our dream home, in our dream location, in San Francisco. We had a very specific wishlist in terms of location, sunlight, layout, west-facing backyard, and so on. Valentina worked patiently with us in a low inventory market to identify potential properties, and we would never have had an opportunity to bid on our house without her... We cannot recommend Valentina highly enough.
