Clients are saying:
"While I was initially skeptical of the amount of value I'd get from a full-service agent, Valeria sold me on her combination of local knowledge and willingness to go above and beyond with all of the things that have to happen throughout the process of buying and selling a home.
All in all, she came through in spades. She and her team were always immediately responsive and were able to negotiate terms that were better than I expected. When the various hiccups arose, she was thoughtful, data driven and helpful. I'd highly recommend her to others."
"Valeria is simply the best…she has been there for us every step of the way. First, she found us a townhouse that we loved. It was the perfect place for us to start our family. Once our family expanded and we transitioned to the suburbs, Valeria was able to rent it for us in a tough market. Finally, Valeria just listed it and sold it for us. She went above and beyond her role organizing to get it ready to sell, marketing it, showing it, and negotiating the sale. We are glad that she was there for us at all stages: from buying it, to renting it, and selling it. Valeria does more than help clients buy and sell real estate – she helps people make memories!"
"Valeria Gubenko was excellent as my realtor. Nothing but compliments to her & her efforts. Extremely professional & pleasant to work with."
"Valeria is the best. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family."
"I am taking the time to comment, because I had great service. Beginning to end, Valeria was engaged, had my best interested in mind, understood what I was looking for and was always easy to get hold of. Buying a house is a life event, and Valeria made sure that I got through it, got me the place I wanted, and we closed very quickly. Valeria is very experienced, knows the process, has great people skills and is very well connected. Couldn't have asked for more."
