Local Expertise. Global Connections.
Valerie has spent her career getting to know people and their interests. From working in visual merchandising on Michigan Avenue to working as a real estate broker, she has always loved building lasting, trusted relationships with people.
Valerie's interest in real estate began at a young age, enjoying home improvement television shows led by industry experts. Her drive to learn more about real estate prompted her to begin analyzing local, national, and global markets. From this she gained an appreciation and a desire to help buyers find the perfect home. She loves to enter a space with a renter or buyer and help each client see their vision come to life in the space. Valerie brings this same artistic mentality to every deal she does; whether it’s small-scale rental homes, or large construction projects, or her passion for fashion design and the latest couture styles, Valerie loves to find blank canvases and work with people to fill those canvases with their personal vision.
In addition to real estate, Valerie is well-versed in fashion, architecture, and design. Her interest and background in fashion led her to begin volunteering with the Glass Slipper Project ®, which provides free prom wear to high school juniors and seniors all around Chicagoland, with volunteers serving as personal style consultants. She often spends her free time exploring Chicago and experiencing the world-renowned architectural designs of its skyscrapers and museums. Valerie can also be found attending industry related events, or traveling all over the world, but especially to her home state of Michigan.
