BIO

Valerie is a top producing REALTOR for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties. She started as a newly licensed Realtor in 2007 and was off and running earning Rookie of the Year her first year. In spite of the downturn in the real estate market, through hard work, attention to detail and consistent follow-up, she built a loyal following and quickly rose to a top agent in the company. Valerie has finished in the top 15 agents for Berkshire Hathaway for the past several years and has been named to Berkshire Hathaway’s Prestigious Chairman’s Circle Gold & Platinum since 2012.

A Georgia Tech graduate with a degree in Information and Computer Science, her education taught her to "think outside the box" for finding solutions to problems. Prior to becoming a REALTOR she owned a small computer graphics based company for 12 years which specialized in computer-based presentation materials. Shortly after selling her business, she started dabbling in real estate investing. No stranger to land and land development, Valerie subdivided several tracts of land into small estate sized lots for personal homes. She also bought, renovated and sold homes, keeping some for rental properties.

Her non-profit experience includes President of the Atlanta Track Club for 2 years and she is currently President of the Atlanta Track Club Foundation where she heads up a board that reviews grant requests using a 2M portfolio. The ATCF provides equipment and uniforms to grass roots youth running programs all over the Metro-Atlanta area and beyond. Running is her passion and youth running programs is her “giving back”.
