Companies don’t hire people without first checking their references. You shouldn’t work with someone without checking their references either. This is what some of my clients have said about me recently.
We recently bought our first home in Canada and didn't know very much about the process here as we are originally from England.  We were given a recommendation to use Val Read.  Upon meeting Val we were met by a lovely, honest and genuine lady who was so easygoing.  She explained everything we needed to know about buying our home.  Val was very patient with us and made herself available at all times of day.  Not only did she help us find our perfect home, she has become a very good friend of ours.  We enjoy spending time on a regular basis.  Thank you Val!

Hi Val:  Just want to say a Big Thank You for making buying our first home in Canada an easy and stress-free experience.  You put us at ease and we were very comfortable with you right from the start.  It was a pleasure meeting and working with you.  We will definitely refer you to other buyers and sellers.  In fact...  we already have!  We plan for sure to keep in touch.

Val is a very friendly, honest, responsive and loyal Real Estate Agent.  She has great knowledge about the Neighborhoods throughout Edmonton and area.  Val is a very accommodating and agile Representative for real estate needs.  Thank you, Val, for your time and commitment to us, and for us.

Val Read is a consummate professional in Every way, and she delivers personal service to each and every customer.  Because of this we are repeat customers.  Val has sold two of our houses in 2 years.  The most recent 2017 sale was in winter in the current tight economic market and we sold in 31 days for 97% of list price!  Val really cares about her clients, is a good communicator and a stickler for detail.

Val provided excellent service right from the beginning including the thorough market analysis, providing comparables and guidance on the proper market strategy and pricing. We live in Yellowknife and had to trust Val completely through this process, Val surpassed our expectations and made the process smooth and painless, we could not be happier. Val’s market insight allowed us to sell in 2 weeks! We want to thank Val for her professionalism, market knowledge and responsiveness and would not hesitate in recommending Val to friends and colleagues.

Val was a Great Realtor, who we would recommend in a Hurry!  The experience of buying our first home together was Exemplary and quite Delightful thanks to Val!  She was extremely helpful and with every question we had, she was very knowledgable. Thank you Val!

When we decided to move to Edmonton it was for health reasons, which meant high stress and the need for a quick purchase.  We asked friends in Edmonton if they could recommend a Real Estate Agent that could meet our needs.  Without hesitation they advised us that Val Read would be a perfect fit for us.  All I can say it Wow!  Upon meeting Val for the first time we knew she was the best choice for our family.  She is smart, professional, organized and an extremely fun person to be around.  She made house hunting something we truly didn't expect... a lot of fun!  Being from another Province, we thought house hunting would be a nightmare, but each time we came to town Val had everything organized in such a way that even our 6-year-old son enjoyed it.  Val, you are the utmost professional and did an amazing job for us!  We love our home and thank you for all the work you put into finding it for us. 
-Cam and Kathy
We just want to thank you, Val, for the excellent work you did in selling our home in Summerside.  It was a pleasure to deal with you and it was recognized immediately that you are an exceptional Agent and an outstanding person with integrity.  We liked very much that you took the time to educate us on the process of selling a house.,  Val, you are on the ball!  Val was able to sell our house within 30 days after others did not get the job done.  Val is the example of what every Real Estate Agent should strive for:  honesty, knowledgeability, professionalism, reliability and personableness.  We are extremely happy and highly recommend Val to anyone.
- Cheryl & Warren
Val was an amazing Realtor who was funny and outgoing and always very Professional!  She knew the market and always gave me good incite on things that I needed to look for when searching for a home.  She even went above and beyond when I decided in the end to buy a place outside of Edmonton and she needed to pay to be able to show me places in Red Deer as well as drove me there.  She always made time for  me and became a good friend too!  Val is definitely helping me buy my next place!  Thanks Val!

I very much appreciated all the effort Val put in to selling my house and finding me a new Home.  It took a great load off my mind at a time when I had a lot on my plate.  Thank you, Val, for keeping me "in the loop" and always being sensitive to my opinions and wishes.  I loved your eye for detail too, like bringing decorative items to my house to stage it and make it look inviting and warm.  I have been telling all my friends about how helpful  and energetic you are.  I liked that you never seemed to spare any effort and treated me as if I were an important client to you at all times.  A great Big THANK YOU Val!

"I received Val's name as a Real Estate Agent via a contact with a military relocation company.  This was an extremely emotional and tough sale for us as we were selling my son's house after he passed away and to make matters worse, our home was over 3 hours south.  Val's service was exceptional, she handled everything for us from staging the house to show it at its very best, to checking on the house and adjusting the thermostat to suit the weather, she helped us every step of the way. I would say that one of the single best things about Val's service though, was her communication skills, she answers every call or email promptly.  Her assessment of the value of his house was right on the nose. Thank you Val for your dedication in making the sale go as smooth and worry free for us as possible."

"Val was, at all times, very professional and a pleasure to deal with. She found me exactly what I was looking for in a house and I would definitely recommend her to anyone requiring real estate assistance. I would not hesitate to use Val again in the future."

I have used Valerie’s real estate "know-how" in three real estate transactions within the past few years. In all cases (buying and selling), Val achieved top marks for her professionalism, knowledge of the market, ability to succeed in getting top dollar for the properties I was selling, as well as strong bargaining skills in a purchase. Having felt like the Realtor was "on my side", this really helped make these financial transitions smooth. I would definitely recommend Val’s services to anyone.

"The experience was friendly and fun. Working with Val made the stress of finding a new home a breeze! We will definately be using her when searching for our next home."

We were looking for a house for a long time but with no success and then we met Val.  We told Val our requirements and price range.  Val shower us one property and that became the Home for us!  Val was very specific to details, at all times patient and professional.  We are extremely happy and highly recommend Val to anyone!  
  - Sukhwinder and Kiran
When we were looking for our new Home, Val was recommended to us by a friend who spoke very highly  of Val's work.  Of course we had to give it a try and that is the last thing we had to worry about.  It is Harder to find a Great Realtor than a new home.  We are so glad we found Val because she is one patient and knowledgeable Realtor in the business!.
