Real Estate Professionals, Southeast Inc.


Real Estate can be a volatile business with plenty of ups and downs so when you find an agent that’s been in the business for more than 24 years you know you have found someone special. Valerie Wanzer is a sales associate with Real Estate Professionals, S.E.

A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Valerie moved to Orlando from Atlanta in 1997 and says she has fallen in love with Florida. “I love the diversity and the friendliness of Floridians and of course I love the sunshine! Her customers often refer to her as their “go to agent” and that is certainly evident in the fact that 99% of her business is referral. She is definitely not a one hit wonder as far as her customers are concerned. Not only do they refer their family and friends to her but many of them have used her on 3 or more transactions. That says a lot!  Valerie has received numerous awards such as being ranked in the top 7% of agents as a “Five Star Best in Client Satisfaction Agent”. She has also been entered into the “Hot 100 Hall of Fame”.

Valerie is a hard worker and thinks nothing of going above and beyond in the best interests of her customers. One of them calls her “a down home and sophisticated girl who really goes out of her way to take care of you and put you at ease”.  She attributes her longevity to her husband of 28 years, Ken and her Broker Robert Meeks who she says “lets me do my thing and make peoples dreams of home ownership come true whenever I can.

It’s often said that the highest compliment a client can give an agent is the act of referring additional business but truly I think the purest compliment is a client that returns again and again throughout the years. Valerie’s success is not only a result of referral business but of satisfied clients returning again and again because they trust her knowledge and guidance and appreciate her thoroughness and professionalism throughout the transaction. Valerie’s is genuinely passionate about real estate and people are drawn to her gregarious personality. Across the almost 20 years that I have known her I don’t believe I have met anyone who can make a stranger feel instantly at ease like Valerie can. She comes by her positive character traits naturally thanks to a mother whose contagious laughter could brighten a room. -Robert Meeks
