WORKING ABOVE REAL ESTATE EXPECTATIONS, to meet yours!
I am a long time resident of Cromwell, & a FULL time realtor. Where clients needs come first. My Motto "Quality of service is in the details".
Valerie Osterhoudt's Profile
I'M HERE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY WORKING ABOVE REAL ESTATE EXPECTATIONS! We are now licensed in both Massachusetts and Connecticut. Visit me at http://www.Cromwellrealestate.com/ I am a long time resident of Cromwell, and am FULL time Realtor. Putting my clients goals and desires first, and try to go the extra mile for them is what I strive to do. I feel the "Quality of Service is in the Details", and this is something that is lacking, generally speaking. I knew there had to be an improvement made. Whether you are buying or selling real estate, this can be a big/stressfful transaction, and someone needs to listen.. therefore, I changed my career. After 25 years of being in the financial field, I left to make a difference in real estate. I'm looking to be an Erin Brockovich in the world of real estate.. with this, I expanded my knowledge with extra classes and have been certified with an ABR (Accredited Buyers Representative). What puts me apart from other realtors is knowing that one should alway be ahead of the market when it comes to listing/marketing properties, and to always listen to your clients as if they were your first and only client... because you might be their first realtor.... and with a job well done could be their only one.
Clients may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.

REMEMBER, WHEN IT COMES TO REAL ESTATE.. ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW, IS VALERIEO WWW.VALERIEO.COM
Buying a house can be stressful. It might be the largest financial investment you ever make. Valerie took the stress out of this equation from the start. Thank you. I would recommend you highly for anyone that is looking to buy for the first time.. or their 10th time. Linda Wolfe
I would recommend Valerie to anyone looking for buying real estate in the Cromwell, CT area. She was understanding and listened to EVERYTHING I had to say. She took her time to explain the entire process, and made sure I felt comfortable and relax. This was a wonder experience. She is NOT your typical realtor. Christine Foss
Valerie stands out when it comes to competition. We recently listed our condo with her and were one of 16 in the complex. With her knowledge and expertise, she had it under deposit in 8 days. Thank you Valerie....JOB WELL DONE. Mark and Cyndi Rose
My wife and I were looking for a home.. we contacted 2 other agencies and they never responded. She responded to my email in less than 20 minutes. She answered all are questions, and put our concerns at the top of her list. She is very professional. We both our first home and close in 6 weeks. Kerri and John Clark
With all the realtors out there, we didn't know where to start. We were recommended to Valerie, and we were happy we listened. She knew exactly what to do, and make sure every detail was taken care of... she also helped us pack up our place. She goes over and above what other realtors do... from what we hear. Tom and Marilyn Beck
We tried to sell our condo on our own, but after 3 months, waiting for people who never showed up, peoples loans falling through, we asked Valerie if she could help us. In 2 days we had 2 offers, the one we accepted was $5k over asking. In 6 weeks we closed with no problems.. my advice to anyone trying to sell on their own and can't, call Valerie she knows her job and can help. Bill and Marilyn McVie
Recently I help out a buyer with a purchase of a condo. In return he gave me a box of chocolate covered strawberries.. and a note which reads:
Valerie this is the least I could do for you for going above and beyond for me and making my condo buying experience a wonderful one...... Ken
Hi Valerie, We just wanted to say thank you so very much for taking the time today to show us those homes. As you know, this process is very new to us and by you being so honest and helpful, made us feel comfortable and easy for us to tell you what was on our minds.
-Rob & Rachel Johnson
All I can say is "Thank you, Valerie". She explained every detail along the way. I was originally thinking of renting, but she explained all the "pros" and "Cons" of renting verse buying, and with the tax credit, it was a no brainer.. I bought a condo, she explained every step along the way, and now I'm a proud homeowner.
Three years ago Valerie, you helped us find our dream house. Thank you. This might be short and sweet, but what else is needed on a card that is attached to a floral arrangement. YES every year (so far) I have gotten flowers from this couple with appreciation of the job I did. It doesn't get any better than this.
My daughter was looking for her first place, and she came across Valerie's name on ActiveRain. They both hit it off, but I found this uneasy at first, Realtors are like car salesmen... and least that was my thought. I went out with my daughter on showings, but after a while didn't feel the need to any longer. Not only did Valerie have my daughters best interest in mind, she treated my daughter as if she was family. When does a Realtor do this?
My daughter bought a condo and has been it in for about a year. Not only has she referred friends to Valerie, but so have I... and will continue to do so.
