As a native San Franciscan, Valerie feels blessed to have been born and raised in such an international city as San Francisco and 45 minutes from a beautiful part of the world, the Sonoma-Napa Valleys.
In 2007, Valerie began work on the Westin Verasa Napa, awarded the 2012 SPG Member Favorite Resort award for Most Romantic Retreat. Having been born on Valentine's Day, Valerie is sensitive to the significance of love to these valleys.
After practicing real estate for 15 years in San Francisco, Valerie decided to take her knowledge and experience up north to the Wine Country. From SOMA to Sonoma, and NOPA to Napa, Valerie sources the real estate market both on an off the MLS to deliver the most comprehensive home sales and home buying assistance available. Valerie dedicates herself to the highest quality client service and suggests that once one knows the nuts and bolts of the business, real estate is fun. Valerie brings a city savvy and a smart, sophisticated real estate approach to the Sonoma-Napa Valleys that is unparalleled.
Pairing with Sotheby's International Realty has been a very fruitful experience for Valerie. Like any good pairing, when the components are in balance and working well together, there is a noticeable difference that affects the experience and, eventually, the outcome.
Valerie is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. She enjoys writing, cycling, time with family and her Black Russian Terrier, Lara, currently training as a storybook dog for autistic children.
