I love real estate! My career began years ago in commercial property management in Boulder, Colorado. Upon moving to Dallas (for the second time), I worked with an international commercial real estate company for 10 years. I became a licensed Realtor in 2004 and love residential sales. After fifteen years as a residential Realtor in the Dallas area market, I relocated to Nashville, TN. My knowledge of current commercial developments is integrated with my expertise on residential development and how they are interrelated and affect each other.
I have been married for 35 years and have a daughter who is married and lives in Montana with her wonderful husband and two magical children. I absolutely love dogs and have four rescues: two pekes and two Yorkies. Music, technology and reading are my some of my favorite life-loves, along with travel. I've been fortunate to be able to travel to over sixteen countries and make some incredible memories.
There is a connection between the toothbrush and real estate: location!
I love working with both buyers and sellers. I weave humor, spunk and tenacity into my daily real estate activities and interactions with clients. When I see a need, I fill it. I started a Realtor mastermind group and partner with vendors to mutually support our respective businesses. Energy is my middle name and I have a client base that ranges in price from $150,000 to almost $2,000,000. It's important to me to be professional, live up to commitments and ensure that my clients know that I truly care about them.

|Valerie Keener helped me sell my house in Murphy. Valerie was wonderful. She was consistently responsive, professional, intelligent and friendly. I am not an easy client. I listed my house after I moved 1500 miles away. Valerie worked very hard to get the property ready to list, and get it sold - FAST! During the prelisting phase, she was very good at sending me data and helping me understand the right price for the property. My last day in town Valerie met me at the house, coordinated the cleaning, window washing, and carpet stretching. When I needed an electrician last minute, she found me one. She staged the house, got the photos done, and listed it. Valerie met the neighbor who had the key and coordinated with him as necessary while the house was listed. She kept me well informed about what was happening and made me feel comfortable that the alarm was always set, and the heat was set. She told me when it was being shown so when the alarm company called because another Realtor didn't follow instructions and set off the alarm, I know it was a Realtor and could cancel the police. I had two offers on my house and Valerie worked late at night to make sure I had two offers to consider before responding to the one with a very short deadline. I enjoyed working with Valerie and wanted everyone to know that she did a great job answering all of my questions and helping me navigate through the selling process. The thing that distinguishes her in my mind is her knowledge and intelligence. She communicates extremely well, listens closely, and knows what to do to satisfy a seller. I would be happy to provide a recommendation for Valerie.|
|"Valerie was very good with my daughter and son-in-law's house sale. She was professional and was so good at her task that the house sold almost immediately. She was helpful with her advice for staging both inside the house and outside. We were very pleased with her suggestions and conduct and would choose her again if possible."|
|"Valerie called us out of the blue one day and introduced herself as a relative of one of my best friends in another state! My friend had told her that we may be looking for a house. We had been using a different realtor who just wasn't doing the job we expected. Valerie's call that day was perfectly timed, and we immediately accepted her offer to help! Valerie did more than just open doors for us. She took the parameters we gave her and showed us several houses, even walked us through a bid on a HUD home. She was driving many miles to help us. Her knowledge and expertise was outstanding! We trusted her every move. When we couldn't find anything within the parameters we gave her, she urged us to look a little outside the box, and guess what? We found the perfect home! We are so thankful for that random call that day!"|
|"Valerie is a tirelessly upbeat person. Professional, knowledgeable and dedicated to making her clients happy. We asked Valerie to find the perfect home in a narrow window. She never quit and we were quite happy by the end. I would recommend her to anyone needing help."|
|"Valerie kept our whole family's wish list in mind when showing us homes. She takes an interest in getting to know her clients and strives to find the home that meets their needs. We totally enjoyed working with her and for sure would recommend Valerie."|
|"Valerie is an expert realtor, with excellent people skills. She is totally focused on her clients needs, and gives 110 percent of her time, knowledge, and expertise. Almost five years after helping us find a home, and patiently guiding us through the process, she is still happy to refer a repairman or offer advice. I would definitely refer her to friends and family, and she would be my first choice if ever I need a realtor again."|
|Michael Killion, Aid-4-U Home Inspections|
|"I have known Valerie for several years and have performed home inspections for many of her clients. Personally, I have found Valerie to be a polished, responsive professional who genuinely cares about her clients. All of Valerie's clients that I have met, describe her as personable, patient, knowledgeable; and consider thenselves lucky in having Valerie assist them in selling and or purchasing their home."|
|Angela Squitieri, RE/MAX Realtor|
