I am always willing to share my knowledge and experience for the benefit of my clients.
Born in Paris, France, Valérie speaks both English and French fluently. In 1973, she immigrated to Canada and has lived here ever since.
As a daughter of a Toronto-based architect and builder, she was always very close to all facets of the real estate profession. She became a licensed realtor in 1989 while she studied interior design.
After completing her studies she started in the ICI Real Estate division at Terry Martel’s downtown office, where she was responsible for the successful marketing of investment properties comprised of multiple unit dwellings, apartment buildings, commercial and retail spaces. The investment market was going through a recessionary period at that time, however, Valérie confronted the challenge and excelled.
In 1993, she was chosen as the exclusive agent acquiring multi-residential properties under The Ministry of Housing and CMHC program for a Native Housing project which resulted in dozens of sales a year.
It is her passionate and determined nature, loyalty, and commitment for which Valérie has earned her outstanding reputation. Well respected in the real estate industry, Val applies her extensive knowledge and experience in investments and architecture to provide her clients with solid advice. Which investments make sense and which don’t? She takes this responsibility very seriously. Her keen eye for design allows her to advise clients on smart renovations and how best to apply their renovation budget.
Valérie knows that adding a personal touch and sense of genuine care is an extremely important part of the business. Full of energy and always smiling, she tries to listen to all her clients’ needs and offer them top-quality advice on both the buying and the selling end. She possesses excellent communication, organization, and management skills. Her enthusiasm, market knowledge, negotiation skills, and integrity have already earned her the utmost respect and trust of many clients. Val’s commitment is to deliver a first-class customer experience and, above all, to ensure the client’s wishes will be heard.
Valérie also offers her expert views on real estate in print and on television. She regularly provides Radio Canada, a French radio station, with advice on the residential real estate market and her views on the future of Toronto real estate. She is a regular guest for live interviews and provides her input on real estate related topics and expands upon the articles published in different newspapers.
