With over 20 years in the housing industry, Valerie began her real estate career at “The Courtyards of Concorde” in Don Mills, where she grew up. Valerie was employed to assist with the marketing of the project during the pre-construction selling phase. Upon completion the project she was employed by one of Canada’s largest new home and condo developers as the marketing manager and continued in this sector for several years, after which she became involved in the real estate side of the industry, marketing and selling high end condominium projects. Valerie became a registered realtor in 2002 (and a Broker in 2007) and began selling pre-construction condominiums at various sales sites, in addition to resale properties.
She believes her success as a realtor can be attributed to the extensive knowledge and experience that she has acquired through the many real estate projects and industry professionals she’s had the opportunity of working with and learning from. As a result, her clients benefit greatly from her experience when it comes to preparing their home for sale, due to the numerous sales centres and model homes she had designed and had built, plus her understanding of construction.
“Ultimately my role, and my goal, as your realtor is to make your real estate experience a positive one and to make it as smooth and stress free as possible - let me do the worrying for you!”
As anyone who has ever bought or sold a property knows, there is a lot of paper to keep track of, and each item is important. It takes a diligent organizational mind to make sure the documentation is where it needs to be through the various stages of the transaction, and that’s one of the big reasons why we are so glad to have Susan as part of the team.
With more than a decade of experience on the customer service side of real estate, Susan not only has expertise in the important organizational protocols, she also understands how stressful the process can be. Susan’s empathy for the ‘people’ part of the profession is key to our success. Susan takes it as a point of personal pride to deal honestly, fairly, and promptly with all client needs.
Her work with us is best described as “keeping order in potential chaos and maintaining a supportive and positive outlook”.
