Client Testimonials

“This was my husband’s and my first time buying a home in a remote location. Valerie’s expertise on properties in Mazama and Winthrop was indispensable. When we finally put an offer on a house, she went above and beyond to help us close the deal. I couldn’t be happier with the work she did for us, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a home or property in the Methow Valley.”

My husband and I were looking for property in the Twisp area and Valerie met us on a weekend, fully prepared with numerous properties for us to view.

I’ve bought and sold five houses in my life, and Valerie was easily the most professional and helpful real estate agent I’ve worked with.

Whenever a problem arose, Valerie was quick to offer options and keep things moving forward. “

She always communicated what was going on and kept the ball moving forward on a fast close.We will use her when we sell our Twisp property in the spring. “


Valerie was a great help in navigating the complexities of purchasing a home in a really competitive market. Her knowledge of Methow Valley real estate and the ins and outs of nightly rentals was invaluable. Her communication and responsiveness was excellent and she went the extra mile (literally!) by driving our closing documents to be filed in order to close the transaction hours before the Thanksgiving holiday! She really served as a partner in helping us make our vacation rental dream come true!


Valerie was a tremendous resource for us as we sussed out location and the ins and outs of buying in the beautiful Methow Valley. She went to bat for us and was super communicative and responsive. Thank you for helping our family establish roots to enjoy the area for years to come!


Valerie did an excellent job facilitating our transaction. She responded promptly to all of our inquiries by phone, text, and email, and provided us with helpful information about the property and the area. She kept working long after closing, helping us with local service providers and leaving a lovely housewarming gift. We highly recommend her services.


We just wrapped up a house sale with Valerie Kardonsky and highly recommend her. One of the best things about working with Valerie is she is proactive. When she brought us news about buyer feedback post inspection, she had already lined up a local roofer to provide a second opinion and had him at the house the next day. If you’ve ever tried to get a contractor to show up quickly and on time, you know how amazing that is. She knows her stuff, knows the Methow Valley, did a great job at helping us price the home, was a great communicator and was responsive to questions day and night. More than once she talked us off a ledge as we went through the roller coaster process of selling our home. She’s a great agent!

Gary & Chris

We had a great experience working with Valerie and I whole heartedly recommend her! She was incredibly knowledgeable about properties in the Methow valley, guided us through the real estate process with kindness and insight based on years of experience, and made herself available to us even on short notice when there was a property we hoped to see. She quickly got us documents and information and was responsive to our questions, of which there were many. Working with her was a pleasure and I would do it again in a heartbeat.


We were fortunate to be able to have Val represent us when we sold our home in Winthrop, Washington. She was attentive, responsive and always honest with her feedback. She kept us in the loop at all times and helped keep our spirits high when we were feeling tense about the process. If you are looking for someone to help you buy or sell your home in the Methow Valley, Valerie Kardonsky is the right person!

Jeanne & Robert

Valerie was a doll to work with through the whole process of selling our house, from initial consultation months before we listed to the last and final closing process.

We met last fall to discuss putting our place up for sale. Valerie walked us through what we could expect and when the best time to put the house on the market. we walked around and got some preliminary feedback on what needed to happen to get the house ready.

When spring came we were ready to sit down and discuss the process and what we might expect how to price the house. We suggested what we thought we wanted as the price and why. Valerie did her research and we met to discuss pricing and length of them we might expect the house to be on the market. She gave us a price we would start at and added contingencies into the pricing.

When we got close to market date she brought in a videographer she used to take pictures and drone footage. The videographer was very well versed in what was required for her to do. Everything went very well and even though the day was cloudy, the pictures and videos came out wonderfully.

During the process of listing and selling, Valerie was right on with keeping us up to date, checking in with us if we this viewing was going to cause any issues with our being there.

Always respectful and patient with all of your questions through the whole process, Valwrie then walked us through the final offer process and helped us with the questions we had and all the way through to closing.
We highly recommend working with Valerie, she was toot sweet in every part of the entire process!
