"Looking for a condo apartment was difficult. Looking for a condo apartment in another City was… frustrating. Thank goodness Valerie Peebles was there to help me and my husband. She was always available when we needed her; always providing updated listings to view; always helpful to deal with. She was professional and persistent in helping us to close our offer. We wouldn’t have been able to get through this process without her. Thank you, Valerie, for making this purchase an enjoyable experience!"

"We were very fortunate to have had Valerie Peebles act as our real estate agent on the sale and purchase of our homes. We were introduced to many real estate agents who were all qualified, however with Valerie's poise and calming approach there was no competition.
Valerie's meticulous attention to detail and quality work exceeded our every expectation. From having artistically tasteful signage that stood out from the rest to having a professional photographer and printer create a one of a kind take home property booklet, Valerie covered it all. It was these qualities, combined with her excellent negotiation skills and engaging personality that resulted in us achieving top-dollar for our home in only 7-days (in an economic recession)! It also resulted in us saving tens of thousands of dollars from what we planned to purchase our new home for.
Valerie was committed and dependable, knowledgeable in responding to our many questions, and most importantly made us feel comfortable in an otherwise stressful situation. These qualities put her above the mark and make this personal recommendation an easy and heart-felt one."

"My wife and I fortuitously met Valerie during the summer of 2008 while making our rounds visiting random open houses with no real direction and happened upon one of Valerie's listings.
After exchanging pleasantries Valerie looked at us and said "This may sound crazy but I already have a feeling for what you two are looking for and this is not the place for you". Considering we had not even completely agreed with each other as to our house preferences, we were certainly intrigued.
Curious and without hesitation we made plans for the following weekend to meet with this fortune teller of an agent to see what she had in store for us. Though we did not buy the first home shown to us, she was dead on with our tastes and we left that day knowing that anyone that read us only after a few minutes of conversation was the professional for us!
The very next weekend we arranged for a day of open houses and Valerie came armed with full knowledge of every neighborhood we visited, sale prices of similar homes in those neighborhoods, distances to all the schools and amenities ... even a cold case of bottled water for the travel in between!
It was shortly into our list of maybes that we entered what would eventually be our dream home. It was everything we wanted and all I thought was where do we sign ... but wait she said - we still need to negotiate the best price for you!
Our only misfortune came when we met the selling Realtor ... Miss "I sell 90 homes a year and I don't have time for negotiations" True to form, Valerie handled her like a pro and always kept professional, working twice as hard to ensure the sale reached its final stage where we would become the eventual happy new owners.
I can honestly say if it were not for Valerie we would not be in our home today and we never would find out how lucky we are to be in the best neighborhood in Burlington!!
Valerie, wise beyond her years, carries herself like a well seasoned veteran and we would recommend her to anyone whether they are looking for their starter home or forever home."

"Right from the start, Valerie impressed us with her efficient, professional manner - an approach that not only inspired confidence, but also generated the results we were looking for. We needed to buy our first home for the best possible price in the right location. By partnering with Valerie, we have been able to find our dream home, within our budget and desired neighborhood.
Because of her experience and service expertise, Valerie has been able to provide my family and myself with best real estate services around. From her knowledge of marketing to her helpful, knowledgeable advice our experience with Valerie confirms to us that we've partnered with true leader in Oakville real estate."

"It was such a pleasure to have had Valerie on my side as my real estate agent. I felt completely confident that she had my best interests at heart. She was professional, energetic, and made the process of selling one home and buying another, stress-free and easy to understand. She was always available to answer any questions, and was direct and up-front with me at all times. I thank her for not only selling my home but also finding me my next dream home. I would highly recommend Valerie’s services to anyone searching for a real estate agent in Halton."
C. Snider, May 2009
"My wife and I had been house-hunting for over a year and were getting incredibly disillusioned - lies by realtors, false hopes from sellers and more. Val came in and literally rescued our dreams. She took control from the start, making sure we had to do as little as possible - basically, just find the house we like. We did this, and true to her word, Val got us it at the price we were happy to pay, with very little effort on our part. We'd recommend Val every time and have no hesitation in making her our realtor of choice."
Jacki and Danny Brown, June 2009
"Thanks so much for all your help and making my first house purchase extremely fun and made it feel like a friend was helping me buy it. You have a amazing outlook and personality that made this experience so great! I wanna thank you again for all the hard work (especially in those heels!) you did for me to get a house I love."
J. Buffett, September 2009
"Valerie helped me find my first rental townhouse within a few weeks of our meeting. She was very thorough in her search to find me exactly what I wanted and needed. She was available every time I asked her to show me a property. She takes pride in her work and you can tell she is genuinely interested in ensuring that you are satisfied with what you find. The day I moved into my property, Valerie called and emailed me to ensure the process went smoothly and then followed up within a month to make sure everything was satisfactory and that I was happy with my new location. I have referred Valerie to colleagues that are interested in renting or buying and they have also been satisfied with her high quality service."
C. Brough, April 2009
My husband and I were very lucky to have met Valerie upon walking in the door of an open house of what would eventually become our first home. Having known Valerie from the past I immediately felt comfortable with her; but it was her calm, knowledgeable and easy going demeanor that convinced us she was the perfect person for the job. My husband and I couldn’t imagine going through the process of buying our first home without Val’s assistance. She was always available, willing to help and was able to make the process fun in an otherwise stressful situation. Her attention to detail and constant Professionalism were invaluable to us. We can honestly say that our experience with Valerie was excellent, we can only say good things about Val and we have and will continue to recommend her to everyone we know!
Thanks for Everything!

My husband and I had the great pleasure of having Valerie Peebles as our Real Estate Agent. From the moment we informed Valerie we were looking to purchase our first home, she started looking into properties that were within our budget and ideal location.
Valerie was so wonderful to work with due to her friendly, energetic, and positive disposition. She was always accessible day or night and answered many many questions. Our nerves were always calmed by Valerie, and she walked us along in the biggest purchase of our lives.
I highly highly recommend Valerie Peebles. She is fantastic, and knows her stuff! You would be crazy not to use her as your Real Estate Agent. Valerie is a true class act!
When my husband and I go to sell our home (not for many years), we will be calling Valerie.
Happy Selling Valerie,
Kevin & Stephanie Lachance of Oakville, 2010
