As first time home-buyers, my husband and I were anxious to find a realtor who would provide us with insight about home values, neighborhoods, hidden fees, and ideas for visualizing spaces to make it our own. When we began this process with Valarie, she was an INCREDIBLE resource to us and personally shared her own insight, creativity, and expertise with us, especially as we looked for an older home in historic McKinney with plans to renovate and remodel – even speaking from personal experience renovating her own historic home. She was ALWAYS available to us, and she was always willing to meet with us, answer questions, and offer advice. We would have never been able to find our home without her, and although she never pressured us in the decision-making process, her insight has been priceless to us. If you are looking for a realtor who truly knows – and encompasses – the heart of McKinney, Valarie is that person. Valarie has become more than just a realtor to us – she has become a friend, and trusted neighbor. We have been so blessed by her, and you will too!
