Testimonials from Therese’s Clients

from Tony—"I was thinking about Therese Valvano today. She’s a Coldwell Banker agent out of NRT’s Dobbs Ferry, NY office. She helped my mom sell her house in Hastings-on-Hudson. She was amazing during the whole process: a little de-cluttering here, a pinch of staging there, arranged for great pictures to add to the widely distributed listing. She also negotiated with the buyer and handled all of the closing items so far, and the ones that will be needed to finalize the transaction. And most importantly, she served as my mom’s trusted advisor throughout the entire process. This was an emotional transaction and Therese was indispensable. Thank you."

from Larissa"We have worked with Therese several times over the last few years. She is someone you know you can trust. Therese was knowledgeable, patient, understood and respected our criteria for a home. Excellent negotiator as well!"

from Lisa"Therese was very knowledgeable about both Scarsdale, where we sold our home, and Irvington, where we bought our home. From everyone we spoke to, Therese is one of the top brokers in the Rivertowns, and she definitely backed up her reputation."

from Michael"Therese is a careful listener who combines thoughtful analysis with intuitive savvy. She is down-to-Earth, focused and personable. We feel that she genuinely kept our best interests in mind throughout the process of showing us potential homes. Moreover, when she guided us to find the right place she continued to provide helpful counsel throughout the contracting and closing process. Highly recommended!!"

from Deborah"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Therese has been so wonderful step by step! She is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, sharp, intuitive, and fun to work with! We now have a new friend as well. Therese happily answered every one of our many questions, and once we did find our new home, she easily navigated us through our complicated closing, AND she also provided us a list of helpful resources in our new home town! We highly recommend her services and will definitely invite her to help us sell this home when it's time to move on to our next adventure. The BEST!!"
