Valerie moved to Olympia in high school, where she met Matthew. They were engaged shortly after graduation and had a beautiful Spring wedding in '99! Matthew and Valerie have two handsome boys, Alex & Ethan, who have always grown up around showing tours, open houses, and photo sessions. She is excited to see them taking an interest in the business and both working part-time for the Firm, saying she "can't wait to see if they continue in their father's foot steps." Valerie loves spending time with family, especially outdoors, sitting by the camp fire, and going kayaking. Her favorite vacations are family trips to Victoria BC, Cabo and Shasta Lake!
Valerie's first full time job was as a listing and transaction coordinator for a top Realtor in 1998. Her boss encouraged them to buy their first home, instead of renting an apartment and Valerie says, "I believe it was one of the best decisions we made!" It is with this firm that Valerie fell in love with the Real Estate business and encouraged Matthew to get his license. They took that leap of faith in 2004 working together in the industry until 2009 when MVP Realty Group was officially born.
