She is very straightforward and honest with you in helping you make decisions that are best for the financial future of you and your family. You will value her friendship through the process and well after closing! She truly cares about her clients!!!
Valerie was born and raised in Greenville, NC and was a boarding student at Saint Mary's. As a graduate of the University of South Carolina, she's a die hard Gamecock, but spends much of her time cheering on the Corinth Holders High School and Franklin Academy High School teams, with kids on both teams. When not in the stands, she is performing her duties as a board member of the Wendell Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Wendell Falls Advisory Board. She always finds time for her committee positions at Wendell United Methodist Church.
She married a Greenville boy, Joe DeLoach, who is her constant partner in crime and her biggest supporter. They have four amazing teenagers and two gorgeous golden retrievers. Although she has a lot on her plate, her family is still her number one hobby!
"I liked Valerie DeLoach the moment I met her at an open house in my area. I knew right away that I wanted her to be my realtor. Her personality was warm and friendly and was backed up with knowledge and confidence. We got along great - and she helped me find my new home in a very short period of time. I will use her services again and again. Thanks Valerie!!" - Cara W.
"I cannot say enough good about my experience in working with Valerie DeLoach! We were probably one of her most "scatter-brained" clients ... yet she never made us feel like we were such. She was always on time, she listened and learned exactly what we were looking for and didn't aimlessly lead us to places that weren't a good fit for us. Very professional ... she helped us in areas that we didn't know about. Very personable ... she was always kind, fun, communicative, and understanding. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!" - Susan B.
"Living in Atlanta and trying to find a home in the Triangle area in NC was going to be a daunting task for me, to say the least...but Valerie literally came to my rescue. Valerie took the time to listen, ask questions and get to know just what I was looking for in a new home. She went above and beyond in representing me when I could not travel for meetings, inspections, etc., knowing exactly what I needed and had requested. What I appreciated the most was that Valerie always had the time to listen and respond to my concerns and always had my best interest at heart. Her exuberant personality and smile puts you at ease immediately! And her professionalism is top-notch!!" - Lidia W.
"We enjoyed working with Valerie. She was honest and upfront and helped point out a things in homes we looked at that my wife and I might have overlooked. She was great with communication and even better in helping us out when we had our kids - it was like having a babysitter." - Brad I.
"We were hesitant to put our house up for sale in this market, because we were afraid it would sell quickly and we wouldn't have a place to buy. Well they put our worries at ease and we went ahead. Our house was under contract in a multiple offer situation in 2 days, and the next day Valerie had us under contract for our new home! I couldn't have imagined the outcome going more smoothly with the timing and we were able to move right from one house to the next. Valerie is very easy to work with. She is very down to earth and easy going. She won't push you to do anything out of your comfort zone but at the same time will fight for you. We will definitely be using her for any real estate needs we may have in the future." - Allison D.
"Valerie has been so helpful helping us find the perfect house (which happened to be a short sale...something we were okay with). Valerie helped negotiate with the multiple banks and owners involved. She made it such an enjoyable experience. She is super sweet and very prompt! We cannot say enough good about her! " - Hannah S.
