I have been in the Real Estate Industry for 20+ years, having been an Accredited Real Estate Appraiser (Canadian Residential Appraiser) for many years and selling real estate for 13 of those years. Valuing property is second nature for me. I know, geographically, all areas, having worked in most, if not all of them when I was an Appraiser. I love working with people and gain people’s trust very quickly. I specialized in valuing high-end properties in the last number of years as an Appraiser and very much enjoyed it. Real Estate is my life and I love it!

I work very well with, and adapt to all ages of people. I particularly love working with first-time buyers and Seniors. Music is a huge part of my life and I love it! I love to volunteer and help others as well as donate to good charities such as the Brain Care Centre regularly.

Val’s Satisfied Clients

Hi Val: Just want to say a Big Thank You for making buying our first home in Canada an easy and stress-free experience. You put us at ease and we were very comfortable with you right from the start. It was a pleasure meeting and working with you. We will definitely refer you to other buyers and sellers. In fact… we already have! We plan for sure to keep in touch.
The Harris Family
I very much appreciated all the effort Val put in to selling my house and finding me a new Home. It took a great load off my mind at a time when I had a lot on my plate. Thank you, Val, for keeping me “in the loop” and always being sensitive to my opinions and wishes. I loved your eye for detail too, like bringing decorative items to my house to stage it and make it look inviting and warm. I have been telling all my friends about how helpful and energetic you are. I liked that you never seemed to spare any effort and treated me as if I were an important client to you at all times. A great Big THANK YOU Val!

Val was a Great REALTOR®, who we would recommend in a Hurry! The experience of buying our first home together was Exemplary and quite Delightful thanks to Val! She was extremely helpful and with every question we had, she was very knowledgeable. Thank you Val!
Allison and Peter
I have used Valerie’s real estate “know-how” in three real estate transactions within the past few years. In all cases (buying and selling), Val achieved top marks for her professionalism, knowledge of the market, ability to succeed in getting top dollar for the properties I was selling, as well as strong bargaining skills in a purchase. Having felt like the REALTOR® was “on my side”, this really helped make these financial transitions smooth. I would definitely recommend Val’s services to anyone.
We recently bought our first home in Canada and didn’t know very much about the process here as we are originally from England. We were given a recommendation to use Val Read. Upon meeting Val we were met by a lovely, honest and genuine lady who was so easygoing. She explained everything we needed to know about buying our home. Val was very patient with us and made herself available at all times of day. Not only did she help us find our perfect home, she has become a very good friend of ours. We enjoy spending time on a regular basis. Thank you Val!

Val Read is a consummate professional in Every way, and she delivers personal service to each and every customer. Because of this we are repeat customers. Val has sold two of our houses in 2 years. The most recent 2017 sale was in winter in the current tight economic market and we sold in 31 days for 97% of list price! Val really cares about her clients, is a good communicator and a stickler for detail.
The Cummings
Val provided excellent service right from the beginning including the thorough market analysis, providing comparables and guidance on the proper market strategy and pricing. We live in Yellowknife and had to trust Val completely through this process, Val surpassed our expectations and made the process smooth and painless, we could not be happier. Val’s market insight allowed us to sell in 2 weeks! We want to thank Val for her professionalism, market knowledge and responsiveness and would not hesitate in recommending Val to friends and colleagues.
The Carsons
We were looking for a house for a long time but with no success and then we met Val. We told Val our requirements and price range. Val showed us one property and that became the Home for us! Val was very specific to details, at all times patient and professional. We are extremely happy and highly recommend Val to anyone!
