Being in the world of residential real estate for the past 15 years has allowed me to carry out my passion for helping others. My past experiences, training and early jobs have all shaped me to be the person I am today in order to provide my clients with the highest level of service and care.
Growing up in Burbank was idyllic. I loved running around our neighborhood and playing with my local friends. As a young girl I was very driven by success. I enjoyed the feeling of being an entrepreneur. Being motivated came easy as I started off babysitting, ironing, and organizing for my neighbors. Even at this early age, I loved seeing the results that came from hard work, commitment, and dedication. Throughout my college years, I worked at Islands Restaurant while studying at the University of Southern California. While earning my degree, I also obtained my salesperson license and began my journey into selling real estate. It was during these years, I realized that I had a passion for Real Estate.
I currently reside in La Canada Flintridge and have enveloped myself in our community with my husband and I have three amazing children: Ryan, Luke and Alexa. They are the reason I am dedicated and committed to you. In addition to real estate, I enjoy volunteering at our local schools and community and pride myself on giving back to ensure the success of future generations. This is rewarding to me. My personal time is spent spinning, running, hiking in our local mountains with my family, traveling, and on soccer and baseball fields cheering on my little athletes!
Being a mother has given me a compassion for my clients of all ages and honed my listening abilities. Equally as important to me is capturing the goals, dreams and concerns of each of my clients while anticipating the next step and handling each with attention to detail.
Being an Associate at Pacific Union has given me the opportunity to take my service to the next level. We are at the forefront of the latest trends and are on the cutting edge of technology. Our Leverage Global Partnership facilitates global marketing and international exposure. With multiple tools at my disposal and 100’s of successful transactions, I have continued to sharpen my negotiation techniques and enjoy being able to cater to each client on an individual basis.
I love what I do and I love my clients. I look forward to providing you with the highest level of service in leading you home. After all, most of my clients are referrals, which is the highest compliment I strive to achieve.
Valerie Talbert is an amazing real estate agent. My husband and I had the pleasure of
working with her on the purchase of our first home in May.
From the beginning Valerie had her hands full with my husband and I. We were expecting
our first baby in July so we had to find our perfect home and be moved in all before our
little one was due. Also, being first time home buyers we had lots of questions about the
process of buying a house. Valerie helped in answering all our question and made the
overall process painless. Making herself available to us anytime day or night was
extremely beneficial due to the fact that my husband and I work on complete opposite
schedules. Valerie was so accommodating to our tight window which must have been
tough for her but she never made it seem like it was an inconvenience, instead did it with
a smile and determination.
We live more than 30 miles away from her and she was extremely knowledgable about
the neighborhoods we wanted to buy in. She pointed out so many things that we didn't
think of such as the closest parks, school districts and she even thought about things close
by that could be noisy such as railroad tracks and freeways. Valerie was determined to
find us a house that was perfect and just right for our growing family.
When it came down to making an offer Valerie knew the timelines and made the overall
process lightening fast. She was even on a vacation and took time away from her family
to make sure we got our offer in within the two hour time frame. Valerie was very knowledgable on what houses were going for in each neighborhood we looked in which
helped us put in offers that were competitive and just right. She made sure we knew
exactly what we were signing and once we understood, it was just a couple clicks. The
process was seamless from start to finish.
Thanks to Valerie we were able to bring our new little boy home from the hospital to our
perfect first home.
Valerie’s professionalism, patience, warmth, and kindness is why we would choose her
again in helping us with a big life decision of buying a home. We would recommend
Valerie to anyone who is in the market for buying a house.

Valerie made the whole process of preparing to sell, doing open houses, successfully selling and finally going thru all the closing activities seem so easy. The fact that we lived out of state was never a problem and Valerie and her staff made the whole sale a pleasure. Thank you Valerie so much. We gained not only a Realtor but a friend and that made this priceless.

Valerie Talbert is an outstanding real estate professional. Our family had the pleasure of working with her on the purchase of our home in April.
From our very meeting, we could tell we were in great hands. Even though we first met on extremely short notice, Valerie was completely prepared. She had an abundance of warmth and patience, which were just what we needed to put us at ease. We were quickly assured that Valerie would be a great advocate during this fast-paced transaction.
Valerie met every challenge, question and concern with prompt and thorough action. Her
friendly enthusiasm never flagged, and she had energy to spare from start to finish. Paperwork and communications were always accurate and complete. We truly felt Valerie was our personal advocate, giving us honest and reliable advice and guidance to make good decisions as we proceeded.
Any challenge, expected or unexpected, was never a problem or concern. Our financing needs changed within a week of closing… no problem. We took a planned vacation out of the country… not an issue. In hindsight, the course of our journey in purchasing our home were more of a challenge than she ever let on. But Valerie never once made us feel as if our process was stressful or problematic. At every turn she handled each new challenge with cheerfulness and confidence.
Even after our purchase was complete, she continued to follow up with us for weeks afterwards, to ensure that we had no additional needs or concerns. That was a nice touch that was unexpected and very much appreciated.
I would recommend Valerie Talbert enthusiastically to anyone who is looking for a professional to represent them in a real estate transaction. The next time I need an agent, she will be the first person I will contact.

Our experience in working with Valerie Talbert is an absolute success story! Valerie made the process of finding our new home a very happy one. She took the time, from the beginning, to listen to what was important for us in this relocation. After she helped us find the home that exceeded all of our expectations, she worked quickly and professionally to ensure we were the first contract submitted. Valerie worked hard on every detail, and our move to La Canada was flawless. Valerie is very kind as well as professional, she has kept in contact with us and thoughtfully asks how our son is adjusting to his new school. We love our new home and could not be happier with the schools and neighborhood. We would definitely recommend Valerie Talbert for all of your Real Estate needs.

It was a pleasure having Valerie Talbert as our real estate agent. Her demeanor was extremely professional and she was very knowledgeable of the market in our area. She presented to my family the market analysis of the area and a strategy that would provide us top dollar four our home. Her expertise was quite evident when the home was sold in less than one week, with a purchase price nearly 110% over the asking price.
I could not have asked for a better experience in selling the family home then the one I received with Valerie Talbert.

In the Spring of 2015 my wife and I had decided to make a change and move to the beach. After upsizing all of our lives it was now time to down size. We called our Real Estate consultant Valerie Talbert. Val had helped us with our last home purchase and she was the only one to help with this. We put our house on the market and she left no detail unnoticed. We had the best photos, marketing plan and hand holding possible. Our house was on the market with a similar property right down the block but we got the higher offer due to our better representation. After the sale we went on to the next step of finding our little beach house. Valerie was patient and committed to finding us just the right home at the right price. We looked at dozens and dozens of properties and Val never let up. We just kept making trips to Ventura to find the one. We were thrilled when we did and Val was a skilled negotiator. We bought our new house at the right price and we could not be happier. Valerie is the most professional, patient, and caring person we have ever worked with. She guided us thru without ever missing a beat.

Our Success Story with Real Estate Agent Valerie Talbert- - During the chaotic time of relocating our family, we needed to quickly put our house on the market. We received over a dozen realtor recommendations and decided to interview the top three that met our qualifications. Valerie Talbert came highly recommended by our friend. We are glad we picked Valerie because she worked very quickly and diligently to get our house on the market. The team she hired to stage the house did a fantastic job. The marketing was fantastic and open houses received a lot of foot traffic. She also had the task of working closely with our relocating company to assure everything went smoothly. We received a ton of offers above our asking price. We picked an offer $30k above our asking price and unfortunately, the buyer could not qualify for a loan last minute in the escrow process. We were disappointed but were confident the house would be sold in time. Sure enough Valerie quickly found us another offer that was $85k above our asking price. Valerie gave us a lot of updates and kept us well informed about the process of selling our house. She has a very warm and calm demeanor and our kids love her! We are so grateful to have found her and would definitely recommend her to all of our friends and family.

It is my pleasure to recommend Valerie Talbert to serve as your real estate agent. We have worked with Valerie for the past eight years. During that time she has sold two of our properties, one of which was sold over selling price, and has also been our agent for three home purchases. One purchase we were able to buy for twenty five thousand dollars under asking price. We strongly feel that these sales and purchases would not be possible if it wasn’t for her.
Valerie Talbert is a highly experienced and knowledgeable real estate agent. She has been working in this profession for fourteen years. She is extremely professional and more importantly she is honest. Valerie is always available to talk and she makes her clients feel comfortable asking her any questions about the sale or purchase of their home. She is such a genuine person and really takes the time to explain every aspect of the sometimes overwhelming and confusing process.
In addition, Valerie demonstrates her dedication to her profession. She made the time to be available whenever we wanted to see a home. In fact we have contacted her to view a home for a purchase and she met us at the home in as little as twenty minutes!
My husband and I have continued to hire Valerie for all of our real estate needs for the many reasons listed above. In addition to her honesty, one of the main reasons that we highly recommend Valerie Talbert is the trust we have had in her. She has treated us as friends rather than clients and makes the home buying and selling process enjoyable and stress free.
Sold a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $600K in Saugus, Santa Clarita, CA.
Valerie Talbert is absolutely THE BEST realtor I've ever worked with! Others shook their heads and clucked their tongues about our home, the price we wanted, etc., but Valerie came prepared, set the perfect price (which we received in a week!), and, most important of all, gave us heartfelt, reasoned counsel. I was very emotional about the move, but Valerie did all she could to stand by me and my family, including phone calls, email, etc. She treats you as if you are the only client she has (which I KNOW we weren't!). I cannot sing her praises loudly enough--I know I will ask for her help FIRST when we make our next move!

Valerie is amazing to work with! We had a more complicated sale and purchase and Valerie made everything work perfectly! Her confidence, knowledge and professionalism is remarkable and we highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for a fantastic Real Estate Professional. Valerie is the best at what she does and we can't say enough about our very positive experience with her with our last two home purchases. Valerie makes a stressful time turn into a seamless, positive and enjoyable experience! She goes above and beyond for her clients and we trust her and all her expertise!
Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $625K in Sunland, Sunland, CA.
Having Valerie as our realtor is the best decision we ever made! I first was lucky to have her help me buy a condo back in 2004. My experience with her was amazing! She was knowledgeable, punctual, thoughtful, sweet, just an all around great person and a fantastic realtor. From that moment on I realized she was our forever realtor. She helped us sell our condo and then find a fantastic home to lease. Now that we were ready to buy our forever house I contacted Valerie and just as all the times before, she is truly wonderful to work with.

Valerie is so enthusiastic and supportive when buying or selling your house! I have used her for both experiences and I can’t say enough how amazing she is to work with! She is very knowledgeable about the whole process and I value her opinions and thoughts. She helped me get into my first home 7 years ago and has since helped me and my husband find our DREAM HOME! She is thorough, professional, knowledgeable, smart and just a beautiful person inside and out! You not only have a realtor but a life long friend! Thank you Valerie for all your hard work! It has paid off!
Bought a Single Family home in 2000 in Burbank, CA.
My husband and I used Valerie to purchase our first home. Not only did she coach us through the process but her amazing knowledge of the home buying process made the experience extremely pleasant. We had so many questions and she was able to answer all of them (and there were many.) We recommend Valerie to all of our friends and family looking to buy or sell property.
Sold a home in 2006 in Parkmead, Walnut Creek, CA 94596.
Valerie was very helpful in getting several comps for the house we were selling, evaluating them to help us set an asking price for the house. She was extremely helpful in providing us names of people to help in getting the house repaired as needed and ready for market. She was helpful in evaluating and researching the offers that came in and helping us get a second opinion on some aspects of the offers. We were very nervous sellers and much appreciated her positive calmness during the selling process. She was very responsive to all our questions and concerns, providing us with additional information we needed in making our decisions. We respected Valerie's professionalism and pleasant personality to work with. We highly recommend as an honest professional who is very pleasant and responsive.

Valerie has helped my wife wife and I with 3 of our homes and my wife's first home prior to us getting married. She is an incredible realtor and friend. She worked tirelessly and countless hours to always show us houses we wanted to see and when we found our forever home she went above and beyond to make sure we bought it. She truly made every process personal and stayed by our sides from beginning to end. Her team of associates couldn't have been a better team to work with and made the process easier than than it looked. I would highly recommend Valerie Talbert and partners trust to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Thank you Valerie for finding our family a home and all of your hard work.
