What Clients Are Saying
Searching and purchasing a home in California while living in Florida was surprisingly easy and successful thanks to Andrea's help. Her knowledge and expertise of LA's real state market is outstanding! We were able to find a perfect home for our son and a great investment opportunity for us. Couldn't be happier.
 
Maria D.

We moved far away and Drea did not bother us once in selling the house. She did all the work and also she selected the best team to work on the house. She knows the area well and the professional that perform the best service at a reasonable price. We are so thankful to have her selling the house for us so painlessly. We never have to come back once since we moved out. Thanks for a great help.

Drea is amazing! She’s thoughtful, strategic, responsive and a joy to work with. She worked harder than any realtor I’ve ever known of and made the listing of our home a true event. I’m thankful we founder her.
 
Josh S.
Best Realtor Ever! Drea made everything so easy! We had multiple offers for over asking. She made the whole process so effortless. She came highly recommended and now we know why. Can not recommend her enough!
 
Angie V.
Drea Valentine helped my husband and I find our perfect home in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles in December 2019. Drea was proactive and communicated well not only with us but with our lender, escrow and the other agent so that we were able to close escrow not only on time but early. Drea was caring and professional and was able to negotiate the price of our home to an under asking price. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an agent in the super competitive Los Angeles real estate market.
 
Joan & Mark W.
Drea is the best of the best. She goes above and beyond with each detail — and her warm, caring demeanor makes you feel supported each step of the way. Especially important for first-time buyers! Highly recommend Drea.

Drea and her team are a dream! We first met Drea in 2013 when my spouse and I were looking to buy our first home. With her expert guidance and help, we landed on a 885 sq ft condo in the desirable neighborhood of Silverlake. After a few years, we moved away from Los Angeles and maintained the condo as an investment property. In 2019/20, we reached out to Drea again and she, along with her incredible team, helped us prepare, list, and sell the same unit that she helped us purchase a few years prior. We thought that living out of state would be hugely problematic when it came to trying to sell the condo. Thanks to Drea +team, we were as involved in the home-selling process as we wanted to be. Communication was clear, constant and easy. Drea's advice was always sound and we felt that she always had our best interest at heart-- making it easy to give Drea our full trust. We were able to handle the entire sale remotely which ultimately eased our concerns and reduced the strain on our budget. We couldn't be more pleased with Drea and her team!
 
Kat C.
Drea is the best! She helped us sell our home & find us a new one during these crazy times...her knowledge, patience, and kindness are exactly what anyone could hope for in a realtor. She was always there for us with invaluable insight and info every step of the way. She not only helped us get a great house for a fair price despite the competitive market, but then sold our home for waaaay more than I had expected. She goes above & beyond.
 
Greg C.

We hired Drea Valentine because we trust her. She did a fantastic job selling our apartment building. We had 11 offers in a week! Everything went smoothly. Thank you! Drea !

C. Russing
Drea was a lifesaver! Her kindness, professionalism and ability to be flexible with everything I threw at her makes her the one to choice. She sold my home within a month for over asking and led me through every step. Her advice was invaluable and if the opportunity arises, I would work with her again in a heartbeat.
 
Cindy P.
Drea helped us buy our house in 2011/2012 and I can't say enough great things about her and the process. First of all- in retrospect, she had her finger on the market BIG TIME, showing us spots that we were skeptical of that turned out to be amazing (Highland Park a block off York, pre-boom, properties that have since doubled in value). Second- we had slightly unrealistic expectations and stood by them, and instead of being condescending or refusing to work with us, she toured homes with us for over a year until we found a magical unicorn of a duplex in Echo Park that was in our price range. Third- when negotiations and escrow got hairy, she worked it out, we had like $17k shaved off the closing price last minute and we closed on time. She was relentlessly positive and I trust her instincts wholly. We have recommended her since then and are working with her to buy another house this year.
 
Melissa M.
Drea has been the agent on my last two home purchases and she's a pleasure to work with. She had had my best interest at heart since day one, I started working with her 6 years before I purchased my first home. She has been nothing but patient and has lent her expertise and vision every step of the way. I'd highly recommend Drea to all buyers (and sellers).
 
Mitra K.
I have worked with Drea Valentine for over 12 years. She was our agent for our first home in Highland Park and helped us buy our second home in Altadena. It could have been a very complicated purchase because it was a contingency offer but she seamlessly helped us and was professional, honest and wonderful to work with from start to finish. I always recommend her to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home.

Drea was recommended to us by co-workers, and prior to meeting Drea, I had never heard anyone praise a real estate agent so highly. My co-workers adored Drea, not simply for her personality and skills, but how she had helped get them out of seemingly impossible bad situations. Those stories convinced me Drea was someone worth working with. We met her and clicked instantly. The process of buying a house was so effortless with her. We never felt pressured to make decisions we were uncomfortable with and felt supported by her every step of the way. We found a place that was perfect for us and Drea helped us negotiate and we got an offer accepted that is no higher than the original asking price. She guided us throughout the Escrow process and scheduled and attended all the inspections and gave us really helpful feedback since this was our first time buying a house. The Escrow process was smooth thanks to Drea. Deciding to use her to sell our condo afterwards became a no-brainer. She staged our condo beautifully, made a lovely website, and within the first 12 days - not only did we receive several offers, but they were also all significantly over asking. If there were ever any issues, she kept calm and helped us swiftly. We always felt like we were her number 1 clients. Everything felt personal and professional. She's also just a lovely person to chat with! We have recommended her to every friend since then, and those that have reached out to her have had equal success. It has nearly been a year since we first met her, and we are so incredibly happy in our new home. We couldn't have done it without her! Thank you for everything, Drea!

Drea is the most dedicated, passionate and amazing realtor I've ever worked with!! She made the process of selling the house so smooth, efficient and smart. Her experience and approach were absolutely brilliant! I'd HIGHLY recommend anyone to handle your purchase/sell. you will not be disappointed!!
 
Tomoyo S.
Drea Valentine did an EXTRAORDINARY job in helping me sell my childhood home after my mother had passed away. She was compassionate, professional, knowledgeable and always had my best interest. I live out-of-town so Drea was very accommodating with my time. I recommend Drea highly! If I were ever looking for another property in Los Angeles, I would CALL DREA!!!
 
Eileen N.
One of the finest people I've ever met in my life. This was my first home sale and Drea held my hand the whole way. She explained everything so clearly to me and was ALWAYS there for me, when I had questions, concerns or even just needed a person there! I can NOT recommend her enough. She's an incredible and INCREDIBLY TALENTED agent. PLEASE use Drea to buy or sell your next home!
 
Italia P.
My wife and I just bought our first home in Granada Hills with Heidi's help! We had started our search with another agent that we were not happy with when we met Heidi at one of her listings. We decided to ask her if she would work with us, and it was the best decision we made in the whole process! She was always proactive about getting us as many details as possible to help us make the best decisions; always helpful as a sounding board without telling us what to do; great with advice but never pressuring; and always patient with us as we all navigated the rapidly changing housing market. She made the process as easy and enjoyable as it could be (especially considering the pandemic). We can't wait to work with her again in the future!!!

Drea Valentine sees the total picture of a home, it’s seller and it’s buyer. She never overlooks the simplest of details while holding firmly to the big picture of the home and the people who have and will love it. She knows her stuff and conducts herself with a professional integrity that many realtors never aspire to. She’s got the right stuff and she knows how and where and when to use it.

" Our house was listed in the upper price range for our area. After initially hiring an agent who was unable to sell our house within 3 months, Drea got us 3 offers within 2 1/2 weeks, all at or above asking price. We ultimately accepted a full cash offer that was above our listing price. Drea went above and beyond her call of duties throughout the selling process. She supplied us with all the necessary connections, always returned our phone calls, was accessible whenever we needed her, and supported us every step of the way. I recommend Drea to anyone who is looking for an experienced and sophisticated agent with great negotiation skills who takes pride in her work and will be there for you every step of the way.
