'Valerie and Becky did a fantastic job selling our home. We had just one showing and received an offer on the 2nd day on the market. We couldn’t have asked for better representation for our home! '

- Amber M.

'Valerie Ellmer and Becky Vardell did an outstanding job in supporting, advising and closure on our home!! Will with confidence recommend them. They deserve the FULL commission sorry they had to share with other realtor!.'

- Marilyn S

Chris and I have had the pleasure of working with Valerie ( and on the most recent purchase Becky) for many real estate transactions. Valerie helped our son Kelly and his wife Meagan purchase there forever home. Valerie is by far the most professional agent we have ever had the pleasure of working with. When I get it in my head to purchase another property she immediately comes to mind. I would not consider working with another agent. She learns your style, she is patient with the process and always works to make the end result a happy experience for all. No one works harder!! Thanks my friend!! Chris and Petra

- Petra Barstow

We reached out to Valerie to help us with finding and purchasing our first home after a great recommendation from a former client of hers. We had an excellent experience with both Valerie and Becky, and their advice throughout the process was invaluable. They asked questions we didn't know to ask, pointed us in the direction of the right lender/contractors/etc., and ensured a smooth closing. We're very happy in our new home. Thank you, Valerie and Becky!


Valerie is amazing in knowing the market, what it will bring for a buyer, and hanging on to the details until each is satisfied. While our sale was far from simple, she really was the voice of calm, clear advice throughout a long-distance relocation.

- Teri Morenovich

Valerie helped my husband and I buy our first home in the fall of 2010, and she was exactly what I had hoped for in a real estate agent. She answered all of my questions very quickly(and I had many!) and she treated everyone with the utmost importance - even the silly ones. She did what she said she would do 100% of the time and fought for me when there were issues with the seller (even after I closed). I am happy to say that she is not just my Realtor now, but my friend, and I will recommend her to any buyer in the area with absolutely no reservation.

- Jennifer Booth

'Valerie is great to work with, cares about the people she works with and most importantly wants to make sure her customers are satisfied. Because she educates you on the pros and cons of a property to make sure people don't make an emotional decision and goes above and beyond to make sure the process is as smooth as possible. i highly recommend Valerie to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.'

- Julie

Valerie is the most knowledgeable and helpful Realtor I have worked with. In searching for my home, she worked with me for over a year to show me properties from Dover to Portsmouth to fit my needs. Valerie is extremely professional, courteous and patient with her clients. She truly cares about what you need and want in a home and does everything she can to find the perfect fit for each client. Valerie made the entire process easier for me. After purchasing my home, she has still been helpful with any questions that have come up. Her customer service does not end with the purchase. Her attention to me personally far exceeded my expectations. She is a genuine person of high integrity and has a warmth about her that makes her not only your Realtor but also a friend.

- Renee Williams

Valerie is a Real Estate agent you can trust in terms of both her judgment and character. She is patient and a pleasure to work with.

- Stephen Erickson

We originally called Valerie to help us find a house to lease until we could get things in order to buy a house. She was one of the only agents that actually helped us because leasing doesn't put a lot of money in an agent's pocket. She didn't seem to be bothered by this. We looked at several houses and finally gave up after having one fall through at the last minute because of a difficult owner. She never gave up. We were able to get everything in order to buy a house sooner than we thought so we moved our focus towards buying. She showed us a ton of houses and never complained. We put in several offers and had a couple of different houses under agreement during our search. These fell through for several different reasons ie; inspections, title issues, financing via foreclosure banks etc. We just kept looking. we finally found the one that was perfect for us and got the house that was best for us in the end. Things work out for a reason. Valerie was a great agent and will take time to listen to you and help guide you... Thank you so much Valerie. We are so glad we found you :)

AMAZING! This was my first time purchasing a home and Valerie and Becky are absolutely amazing! With the market the way it has been, limited inventory, they actually went door to door, knocking to see if there was anyone interested in seller their home in the neighborhoods I desired. If that doesn't show dedication, perseverance and customer service, I don't know what does. They not only help find a home, but helped me SO much through the process. Their ability to handle any situation is spot on. The sellers agent was nothing short of unprofessional, Obnoxious, rude and they handled his outburst and tantrums with ease. They were so supportive during the home buying journey. Their knowledge of the market and experience over the years truly shows her expertise in seacoast real Estate. AMAZING!!!

- Brently Childs

Valerie and Becky were fabulous to work with! They helped us sell our home and purchase our dream lake front home. They went above and beyond the call of duty. I would highly recommend them to anybody looking to buy or sell.
