Retirement is different for everyone and depending on several factors, it can have several stages. Valerie assists individuals and couples who are relocating and transitioning from one home to another for some of the following reasons:

For example:

  • Relocating out of the area/state/country

  • Downsizing (selling & purchasing concurrently) 

  • Relocating with family/friend(s)

  • Transitioning to an assisted living facility 

  • Locating to senior housing communities 

  • Consolidating homes/rentals


The process of a divorce or separation affects each spouse and family differently. Valerie works equally with both parties to ensure a smooth and successful transition for their families. She has assisted couples in some of following situations:

For example:

  • Financial difficulties (such as bankruptcy, foreclosure)

  • Short sales with/without trustee sale dates; our sub-specialty

  • Dissolution of any/all properties

  • Purchase of another home (concurrently) for each spouse
