Valerie was a pleasure to work with. Nobody worked harder or more thoroughly to help us… negotiate the purchase of our new home. It was a complicated transaction with many issues arising out of the inspection process which resulted in a significant price concession from the seller. Through it all, Valerie was responsive, professional and determined to get us the result we wanted to complete the transaction. I would highly recommend Valerie to sell your home or assist you with your purchase.

When we began our search for a home in the Coachella Valley, we had a very long list of requirements, a fluctuating timeframe, and a limited budget. Layered on top of that was a pandemic and a housing market with very little inventory, which made finding the perfect house a real challenge. Thankfully, we had Valerie on our team. From my first interaction with Valerie, she provided so much useful information about specific areas and communities that would be a good fit for our needs. She tirelessly showed us homes (online, by video call, and in-person) for over six months. Even though we could not be there for many of these showings, we felt Valerie understood what we were looking for and we trusted her input. When the perfect house for us became available, Valerie`s skilled and personal approach helped us win the house even though we were not the highest offer! In addition to a tremendous amount of expertise in the Coachella Valley real estate market, Valerie brings a warm and personal touch, and always makes us feel more like friends than clients. If you are looking for someone who will listen to your needs and work tirelessly to find your perfect home, I highly recommend Valerie!
I was having a very difficult time finding the right home to buy because the inventory of homes on the market was at historic lows in La Quinta, CA. Valerie showed great ingenuity by contacting a homeowner who did not have their home listed but lived in the community where I wanted to be. She successfully negotiated the purchase of the home for me and I was able to close in less than 3 weeks. Valerie has an uncanny understanding of the complexity of the California real estate market in the COVID environment. She was always focused and extremely organized, making me feel as if I were her only client. I really appreciate her diligence, understanding, and continuous persistence during each step of the process. Beyond her professional demeanor, attention to detail, and ethics; she’s just a great person. I was so pleased with her assistance after closing; she even provided a comprehensive list of all the utilities before the big move. Valerie is a great listener. I will definitely recommend Valerie to others looking to settle in the Coachella Valley.
I have known Valerie for more than 30 years and she is one of the nicest and most capable people I know. That’s a winning combination if you’re looking for someone to help you buy and/or sell a home. She values relationships above all else and you can trust that she will always act in your best interest. She always goes above and beyond to help others and she is passionate about her work. In addition, Valerie’s communication skills are world-class - you’ll never be left scratching your head wondering what she said or meant, or waiting endlessly for her to call you back. Bottom line – Valerie is the best, and I would give her my highest and best recommendation.
Valerie was a superb realtor in every way. She tirelessly and patiently showed us homes in our price range until we found one that met our list of requirements and matched our aesthetic tastes. She stayed in continual communication with us, answering every question in a timely way. After we decided to go through with a purchase, she thought ahead and provided us with constant support for all the necessary steps. I wholeheartedly recommend Valerie for anyone looking for a hardworking and patient realtor.

Finding and buying a property while out of state, during Covid crisis, could have been super frustrating and challenging. Thank goodness we connected with Valerie, who made it absolutely painless AND fun. Valerie did a great job asking the right questions and listening to what was important to us. She provided details regarding the neighborhoods and areas. Because we didn’t know the area very well, this input was invaluable. When ‘the one’ was listed, Valerie immediately got to work to help us make a winning offer. She gave great advice regarding structuring the offer and helped us negotiate with the Sellers in a positive and professional way. We beat several other offers and are beyond excited and feel we found exactly the right house for us. The Sellers commented one reason they selected our offer was the positive communication (credit to Valerie!) Once we got to the inspection, Valerie changed her schedule to be in town and to participate. The fact she wanted to be there in person. Nice!!! We could not be more pleased with Valerie’s service. We have bought and sold quite a few homes over the years and this was by far one of the most professional and positive experience so we’ve had. We will use Valerie again in a heartbeat!

In recently preparing to list my home, I found that I had many questions regarding when to list, what I personally needed to do, how I would go about getting those things done and, perhaps, the biggest and most important thing of all, proper marketing... thinking I could do most things myself, I soon realized I needed the assistance of a true professional! It was my good fortune to be able to call upon Valerie Murphy, real estate agent with Bennion Deville Homes in La Quinta. Her expertise in identifying homes for purchase, listing homes for sale, preparing for the process and marketing are unparalleled. Friendly, available, a good listener, enthusiastic and professional, all sum up my experience with Valerie! I can`t say enough about this outstanding agent in every capacity!
