"In the last few months, I have had Rachel represent me as both a buyer and a seller.  First, she helped me in negotiating a very good deal on a new home and later she and her team were a tremendous help in navigating a challenging situation that I found myself in when trying to sell my place.  With their guidance and working behind the scenes, they were able to line-up a buyer with a great offer before my place even officially hit the market."


"Rachel and her team provided extraordinary service and went above and beyond in every aspect of the sale of our home, from helping ensure we priced it competitively to providing expert advice and coordination with renovations and staging to following up and following through with countless details all the way through closing. We couldn't be happier with the team and highly recommend them."


"From my perspective I truly cannot imagine a better outcome...When you consider that this sale included maintenance and repair work on the property and staging - I am amazed that the sale was completed in such a short time frame and on terms most favorable to us. Thank you and your team for the great work!"

"When I started looking for my first home, I reached out to a friend whose family had purchased real estate in DC to see if he had any recommendations for real estate agents. Had I not done this, I likely would have missed out on the opportunity to work with Rachel Valentino and Jenn Abreo.

Rachel's first reply to my outreach email was indicative of the prompt and professional response that would characterize my entire experience. Those they recommended during the home buying process, such as the loan provider and the inspector, also exemplified professionalism and promptness.

Jenn was my primary point of contact when viewing properties. Due to how quick the home buying process was for me, I only interacted with her in person a handful of times, but by our second in-person meeting, I felt like I had known her for a while. She was so personable and quickly picked up my body language, which made it very easy to move through properties.

I plan on inviting both of them to my housewarming party in a few months, and I will be reaching out to them when I make my next real estate purchase. Without a doubt, a 10/10 experience!"


"I recently had the pleasure of working with Rachel, an exceptional real estate agent, and I can't say enough positive things about my experience. From start to finish, Rachel went above and beyond to ensure that my needs were met and that I was completely satisfied with the home-buying process.

One of the things that really stood out to me was her incredible communication skills. She was always available to answer my questions, provide updates, and offer advice whenever I needed it. Whether by phone, email, or text, she was quick to respond and always provided clear and concise information.

Another aspect of Rachel's service that was truly extraordinary was her attention to detail. From the initial consultation to the final closing, she was meticulous in her approach, ensuring that every aspect of the process was handled with care and precision. Her thoroughness and professionalism gave me a tremendous sense of confidence and peace of mind throughout the entire process.

Beyond her communication and attention to detail, Rachel's knowledge of the local real estate market was truly impressive. She had a deep understanding of the neighborhoods, schools, and amenities in the area, and was able to provide invaluable insights and guidance as I searched for the perfect home.

Overall, I can say without reservation that Rachel provided me with an exceptional experience. She was friendly, professional, and dedicated to ensuring that I found the perfect home for my needs and budget. If you're looking for a top-notch agent who will go the extra mile for you, look no further."


"We worked with Rachel to sell our first home, and cannot speak highly enough of her skills and service. Rachel expertly guided us through the entire process, from prepping the house to marketing, listing, reviewing contracts and negotiating offers. She regularly checked in to make sure we had all the information and support we needed, and kept our preferences and priorities in mind throughout. Her team was professional, friendly, and efficient, and made the process as enjoyable for us as possible. Most importantly, thanks to Rachel's keen instincts, we received multiple offers and settled on a final price than was substantially higher than we would ever have dreamed at the start.

"I had a wonderful experience with Rachel Valentino and her team. I worked closely with [her team] Ben who earn a 10 for their work. They were excellent in helping with all aspects of the sale as I was out of the country. Every aspect of my selling experience was extraordinary. The team got my place staged, listed, under contract and sold with an absent homeowner and a power of attorney in Illinois. Rachel and her team are honest, hardworking, trustworthy and they really listen to what I hoped to achieve and made absentee selling extremely easy and worry-free. They took care of everything. I would highly recommend them."


"I worked with Rachel Valentino and [her team]. [They] were extremely responsive, helpful, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. They answered every question I had no matter how silly it might have seemed. They were incredibly professional and I couldn't have asked to work with a better team. I was selling from abroad, and they were very easy to get in touch with via email and Skype, and worked with me on timings. They also helped coordinate all of the condo being cleaned and ready to show without me having to be there. It was an incredibly easy process. Everything was really easy; the entire team went above and beyond to make this a very simple process and very quick. Rachel is so knowledgeable about the market, and I very much trusted her judgement on pricing and decisions. I felt every time I spoke with Rachel or [her team] they had my best interest in mind. They were willing to answer any questions and made me completely comfortable with the process. Absolutely, I would trust Rachel completely and I know she was 100% honest with me and completely professional and I would definitely recommend her to family and friends."


"I had the best experience with Rachel Valentino. Rachel and [team] are fabulous with their communication. They are on time for meetings and do their jobs perfectly. One aspect that was extraordinary was their ability to negotiate a great deal for the sale. They listened to what I wanted and together we were able to accomplish my goals. They are honest, trustworthy and extremely professional. I would highly recommend them to family and friends."


"The Valentino team was excellent. Rachel Valentino provided great advice to us when we were on the fence about some issues that came up in the inspection, and did an amazing job handling the sale of our house, which it did quickly and at a price exceeding our expectations. Jenn - she handled the marketing for selling our house and she was great. Selling our house so quickly and at a great price was extraordinary. We achieved our real estate goals with the exceptional help of Rachel and her team. We would trust them again and will recommend them to family and friends."


"You get all 10's. Rachel and [team] were extraordinary. I kind of wish I was going into the house flipping business just so I could work with them again. Will highly recommend to anyone looking for a recommendation!"


"Rachel was our realtor when we bought our first and second house! She is not just my realtor, but a friend of the family, and I hope to stay connected with her. Rachel, Jenn [and team] were professional and guided me every step of the way in both selling our old house and buying our new house. It was stressful, but I trusted in the experience of the team and it was the right thing to do. The Valentino team is an invaluable resource and I couldn't have done it without them. Rachel was with me every step of the way. When we discussed putting our house on the market, she guided us on making the right return on investment choices, what our target should be to bring us up to meet the comps, and when we needed to list our property. She brought in professional stagers, copy writers, photographers and was there to assist. The team's experience melted away our stress, and we successfully sold and bought in six weeks! She helped make our property for sale perfect, and we received offers the first weekend! We went in with a good offer on the house of our dreams, and it was accepted. I cannot begin to express my appreciation for the Valentino team knowledge and professionalism. Every single thing they did was top notch and exuded class. Would absolutely, and already have, recommend Rachel and her team to family and friends."


"I loved that Rachel put together the full package, a consult with stager, someone to draft marketing materials, photographer, she thought of everything and we felt really good about the process. Rachel, Jenn & [team] were all wonderful to work with. They are an honest and trustworthy group and I wouldn’t hesitate to continue to recommend them to family and friends as I have in the past."


"Rachel and her team were great. They got my house sold in a week and kept me up on everything through closing. I’d recommend Rachel and her team to others."


"I would highly recommend Rachel and her team. Not only did they give us many helpful suggestions to upgrade our space without spending a fortune, they provided a qualified contractor to update our condo in a timely manner. We followed through with their plan and, not only did our home look amazing, but it sold for maximum value."


"The team is professional and did an in depth market analysis to help us determine a selling price [and] they marketed our house effectively with beautiful materials...The team [was] very responsive to any questions or concerns that we or the perspective buyers had and were always wonderful to work with.

If you are looking for an agent to sell your house, this team should be your first choice."


"Thank you very much for the wonderful job you did getting our condo ready for sale. (Including painting, cleaning and staging.) And most of all thanks for selling our condo so quickly in a difficult market. We greatly appreciate your outstanding ability to get the job done. You proved your skills [time and time] again."


"I love how the updated version looks! I can now see how it makes the unimaginable, imaginable for the spaces! Hopefully it will drive the attention for the offer that we anticipate...I credit Rachel's team's encouragement of staging through their staging partner, as it led to the ultimate attraction of a buyer."


"We are so fortunate to be able to buy and sell with your team. Your guidance, your knowledge, and your support throughout the year and half long journey kept us sane and focused. We wouldn’t be where we are without you.

We don’t view our relationship as transactional but as a friendship. Anytime any of our friends reach out for real estate advice or any real estate needs, we 100% are your biggest advocates and evangelists!

You really taught us a lot of lessons which we still value and appreciate. We are grateful to you and your exceptional team for making all of this a reality."
