My brother David recommended that we try Valerie and her team based on his experience in purchasing and selling a home. He was right. Valerie and her partner Judy were incredible. We are first-time buyers and it showed. Valerie and Judy had the patience and kindness to walk us through the entire process. We felt protected and safe navigating through the numerous complexities of home ownership. The result has left a big smile on our faces. My wife and I could not be any happier with our purchase of a co-op townhome. Anyone who knows about co-ops knows how tricky the process can get. It was a cinch!!! This is all due to the hard work and diligence of our wonderful agents. We will hire Valerie and Judy again for our next purchase without any hesitation. Many, many thanks for making our lives easier.

I’ve been looking at agents to help me with buying a townhome that I liked. A friend of mine recommended Valerie for two reasons: 1. She is a straight shooter and 2. Her rates are very competitive. Besides the two aforementioned qualities, she has the uncanny ability to understand and tailor herself to her client’s needs and personality. This is a rare skill that either you have or you don’t. And her demeanor is absolutely unassuming, honest and most importantly, she is exceptionally prompt in her responses. The purchase was a breeze. I even used her recommedation for the lender and inspection. Escrow closed within a month of the offer acceptance. Attention to minute detail is her lasting quality. I wish her all the best in her work.

I had purchased and sold 3 houses in the past 13 years using 3 different real estate agents. Valerie Trang was my agent for my most recent home purchase. Compare to my previous agents and the overall experience, Valerie was head and shoulder above all of the rest.
I met a few other agents prior to choosing Valerie. I decided to go with Valerie mainly for her honest assessments of everything (both positives and negatives), and for her in-depth knowledge of the industry.
The longer I work with her, the more I came to appreciate her style. She was not at all pushy or impatient. She let me take my time and be there to answer all of my detail questions to my up-most level of satisfaction. She was extremely proactive. She also kept me in the loop on all of her communication with relevant parties. Hourly updates were commonplace. Overall, the entire experience was extremely pleasant.
What even more impressive was her extremely responsive service AFTER the sales. For example, I encountered some problems with the kitchen countertop and the marble shower. She was there to make sure I got a hold of reputable contractor as well as the previous owner. She applied just the right amount of pressure to get things moving very quickly.
I'm sure I'm just another very satisfied customer in her long fan list. She was recommended to me by another friend who had used her for many real estate transactions spanning over a long period of time. I intend to follow his lead. I would and have proudly recommended her to my own family members and close friends.
Thank you Valerie,
Anh Le, Willow Glen
You came highly recommended to us by our neighbor, John and we were very pleased with the way you handled the sale or our home. In spite of the unusual circumstances surrounding our move, your Real Estate knowledge, professionalism, and excellent communication made this an easy process for us. Thank you so very much for all of your help. We would recommend you without any reservation whatsoever.

We are so grateful for Valerie's outstanding effort in selling our house. Valerie is energetic and personable, proactive and her client's strong advocate. Valerie is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the real estate selling process, and nothing took her by surprise.
Valerie gave us great advise in "staging" or getting our house ready for the market. Everything she suggested turned out to be something that brought positive comments. She was very willing and helpful with all the open houses and was always available to us when we had questions. She communicated well with us at all times by phone or e-mail.
Valerie went "above and beyond" what was required of her in selling our house and we couldn't be more pleased with our experience.
~ Jeanne & Ron Seymour
Valerie is an excellent real estate professional. She is diligent, detail-oriented, thoughtful, sincere and always keeps her client's desires in the forefront. She helped us immensely during the buying process and made sure all the details were taken care as they should be.
We are very glad to have met her and would recommend her highly to others for their real estate needs. Best wishes Valerie!

My husband and I would like to write this enthusiastic letter of recommendation and commendation to Valerie Trang for all of her hard work, as our Realtor in the Summer of 2007.
In May 2007, we began looking for a home to buy. It was going to be our very first home and it was important to us because we would be raising our young children in that home, for a long time.
We attempted to look into the housing market by ourselves without committing to a Realtor, but after a couple of months, we decided to invest in one. We interviewed many Realtors, and felt alright about our choice; but it was apparent that "dedication", "ethical behavior" and "integrity" were not a nature attribute amongst Realtors, and soon fired our Realtor, with much regret. (Please note the emphasis on, "much regret"). We again tried to look on the market without one, and grew discouraged at the lack of honesty we kept running into with the seller's agents.
Then we met Valerie Trang. She was a breath of fresh air. Truly! She was not boastful and full of herself. She never bragged about the "Umpteen Years of Service". She never tried to sell us. In a humble and modest way, she said that she understood what we were trying to accomplish and asked us to trust in her.
She was always accessible to us by phone. She made arrangements and planned; she was well prepared and conscientious. Many phone calls transpired between our lender, the title company, and Valerie walked us through them all. It was a dream come true! And we are so proud to say that by August 2007, we bought a beautiful home, and were absolutely satisfied with her skills; but more importantly we were satisfied in everything she had promised, she delivered, on time, and forthright!
Thank you Valerie, for all your hard work. It was a pleasure doing business with you, and you were able to change our opinions about Realtors and the process of buying a home in the Bay Area.
With much appreciation,
~ Frank and Kari Quijas
Several years ago we tried to sell our house through 3 different Brokers without success. We couldn't understand why our house wouldn't sell. We needed someone with ambition, professionalism, creativity, knowledge of the market, resourceful and intellegient. We were actually afraid to put our house on the market again.
Well we found the team: their names were Kim-Khanh Tran & Valerie Trang. They were always there for us. They always returned our calls, were sensitive to our needs and were the best agents we have ever encountered.
I would recommend Kim-Khanh Tran & Valerie Trang to anyone who wanted to sell their house or anyone looking for a house. You won't be sorry.

Hiring Valerie to help us sell our old house and buy a new home was the best decision we made. We were very impressed with her knowledge of the real estate market and the Bay area. She gave sound and reasonable advice in regards to the best approach in selling and buying our homes. Throughout the whole process, Valerie was professional, approachable, and responsive. She always looked out for our best interest and was able to negotiate the deals so that's it was fair and equitable for all parties. Her dedication, hard work, and compassion for her clients is evident in all her interactions with us. Even while out of the country, Valerie remained in touch to make sure our transaction went smoothly. Working with Valerie not only saved us time and money, but she made the complications of selling and buying a home easy. We look forward to working with Valerie in the future should we decide to buy or sell another home.
~Tuan Tran & Mindy Nguyen, San Jose, CA
We met Valerie while we were shopping for a new home and decided to ask Valerie to represent us selling our home. We were very glad we did! Valerie is very knowledgeable, responsive, and has exceptional negotiating skills. Valerie possesses the integrity and tenacity to follow through and guide the parties through the sometime difficult negotiation process. During the course of buying and selling our home, Valerie made the process much smoother by always being available by telephone, email, and in person when necessary. Electronic access to reports, contracts and forms was also possible and saved us much time and effort.
We worked with other Realtors in the past but we would not hesitate working with Valerie again or recommending her to a prospective buyer or seller at any time.

Your assistance in selling our property was invaluable. You put in an extraordinary effort to ensure all went perfectly, and it did. Thank you. It is unbelievable how reasonable your costs are for your services. You took great care in our every need and you were always accessible. Your personal attention to detail, your knowledge of the area and real estate and your negotiating skills made for a smooth transaction. The efforts to list our property were above and beyond our expectations. Most significantly, the virtual reality tour website, it was of superior quality. Not to mention, impressing my husband, a General Contractor Business Owner. He works in real estate investment and development and takes on projects constantly that require property purchasing and sales.
It was truly a pleasure to have found you and to have worked with you. Your unparalleled professionalism and expertise along with your unsurpassed dedication made for an excellent business partnership that we look forward to with all our future dealings.

Sumi and I were impressed with your professionalism and efforts in helping us sell our house as well as in the efforts to buy a house we liked. It was particularly difficult to time the two transactions back to back when the market was softening but due to your untiring efforts, we pulled it off. I was personally impressed with the fact that you followed up things that were being dropped by other people and saw to it that all was completed in due time. This level of professionalism is rare to find in today's world when Reators are over busy and try to short change their clients. For all intents, your support was well beyond our expectations. And this praise is coming from a tough person like me who is quick to criticize when some one is not good - so take this as a very strong positive feedback.
Last but not least, you did all this with the fixed commission plan which was financially an excellent deal for us.
We will definitely like to use your services in the future and will be delighted to refer our friends to you.

Valerie has been such a joy and pleasure to work with during this entire process. She helped us to sell our old home and purchase our new one, and was very responsive and knowledgeable of all the necessary steps that needed to be taken. Anytime I had a question, she had an answer back to me whether by e-mail or phone, within 5 minutes or less. Her knowledge of the market and advertising sold our home in 3 days! Valerie made both the buying and selling process glide by with ease. She took care of all the particulars and communicated with all of the related parties such as lenders, inspection companies, Title Company, and buyers to get the job done. I am very impressed with how effortless she has made this entire experience for us. She went the extra mile and helped the buyers with details while their agent was out of town.
I really don't think this would have been possible if it weren't for Valerie. Like Rob and I keep saying, this move must have been meant to be! We have never had such an easy time of buying and selling homes.
We will be recommending Valerie to all of our friends and family, she knows how to make your dreams come true!
Thank you Valerie!

Satya and myself are very pleased with Valerie's service. She is an articulate and patient Realtor. She is very dedicated in her work and provides excellent service for her clients.

~ Vinoo and Satya Ramachandran - Fremont, CA
We both want to thank you so much for all you have done for us in helping us buying our new home.

~ Toan Tran & Judy Le - Saratoga, CA
Valerie, I was happily surprised by how easy it was to work with you, during such a tense time while trying to find a home. I am very happy that we have found our new home in a very short time with your help. You understand the market and certainly know how to "sweeten the deal" to get the house we wanted. I was delighted to get to work with you because you are very professional, knowledgeable and responsive agent... You were there every step of the way and you did an excellent job in closing the deal in less than 20 days! I look forward to working with you again in a near future and it is my pleasure to recommend you to anyone else in search for the best real estate agent!

I was blessed with meeting and working with you to sell my condo in the Villages.
Your hard work and pleasant attitude that helped to get my condo SOLD in a very short amount of time!
I have sold 6 properties in the past 20 years and I can honestly say it is good to know that there are still agents with integrity, knowledge, caring and understanding like yourself. I know for a fact that any client has you representing them in any real estate transaction is getting the BEST quality service!
Thank you Valerie for being there every step of the way.
I will definitely call you in another 2 years when I am ready to sell my new condo.
