My husband and I are first time home-buyers and an architect friend recommended Val & Steve saying they would work hard for us. He was right! Val is a full-throttle individual who has an impressive knowledge of the entire STL area. She has a ton of energy and a great sense of humor! She responded quickly to messages and always kept us informed.
Even though it took us nearly a year of on-again-off-again searching in a market of seemingly-little inventory to work with in our price range due it's popularity, Val never seemed frustrated with us, even when we were frustrated with the process. She learned our tastes very quickly and even warned me not to waste my time with online searches because she'd do the work to find "the one." Well she did and she helped us negotiate some favorable terms post-inspection.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Val and Steve to anyone. After spending so much time together, I will certainly miss weekends with Val!
Val helped us find our new house. It took us over 6 months but she was able to find us the perfect house and helped us see the home's true potential with a little effort.
If you are looking for a real estate agent that cares about her clients and can get the job done, look no further than Valerie Engel! She has represented us in both selling and buying homes in the St. Louis area. The first house we listed with Valerie sold after only 3 days on the market!! She is by far the best agent in the area. She went above and beyond to sell 2 houses we listed with her and she helped us buy the home of our dreams. She is extermely responsive to your needs and is passionate about her work. She is a true go-getter! My husband and I could not be more pleased with the service she provided us. Her real estate record speaks for itself, and once you meet her, you will see why!!
--VERY HAPPY CLIENTS
Steve and Valerie are seasoned, sophisticated and persevering in their approach. They make a difficult process palatable. They are pleasant, polite, timely and unflappable. A pleasure to work with.
