Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago - Sarah Valle


Sarah Valle

YOU ARE AS UNIQUE AS THE HOME YOU’RE LOOKING FOR... 

The search for a new home is a deeply personal journey. Selling one is an equally individual and singular undertaking. This is why I utilize my meticulous attention to detail and extensive knowledge of Evanston and Chicago’s Northside real estate markets to deliver my clients a complete, custom-tailored brokerage experience that meets their specific needs and empowers them to achieve their individual goals. 

It’s my mission and my pleasure to be the best guide, most personable advisor, and fiercest advocate for everyone I work with through every step of the process. My years of experience, industry know-how, up-to-date technological expertise, and exemplary negotiation skills (as a designated Real Estate Negotiation Expert - RENE) enable me to design winning strategies and data-driven solutions for all manner of real estate dealings and adapt quickly to troubleshoot any new or problematic issues that may arise. And as part of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago, one of the leading brokerages in the Chicagoland area, I’m able to connect homebuyers and sellers with advanced tools and resources that fully maximize their options and crystalize their vision. 

I genuinely believe the perfect home is out there for everyone, so I’m excited to speak with you about taking the first steps towards yours. 

A little about me... 
My roots are in Rochester, New York, I am an alumnus of the University of Toronto, but ever since the Chicagoland area became my home in 2003, its welcoming people and inclusive nature have made me feel like a Midwestern native. I’m involved in my community as an active volunteer with St. Athanasius schools in Evanston, the Old Town School of Folk Music, and as an Ambasador to the Kindness Foundation. When I’m not pursuing my real estate passions, I can be found exploring Chicago’s world-class museums and distinctive neighborhoods, visiting the latest breweries (and dabbling in my own IPA creations), and having fun with my family at the lakefront or wherever our adventurous spirit finds us! 

"We worked with Sarah both to buy a new house and to sell our old one that we’d been in for a while. It was frustrating timing because we faced a pretty dry market. Sarah was the perfect person to work with in a situation like this. She doesn’t just check boxes; she brainstorms ways that she can help. She’s very creative about mining listings and potential listings. We walked in to view a handful of houses that they were still touching up; we were the first people they’d been convinced to let in.  Selling our old house with Sarah was amazing. The people she put us in touch with to get the place ready were first rate, and we pretty much use all of them now to help work on our new place. The house sold quickly while comparable properties continued to sit. One year later, we regularly come up with householder questions that she’s able to help us with. I have an impulse to try to do things myself when I can rather than hire someone else, so even though I was pretty sure working with a realtor to buy and sell was a good idea, at the start of this process I was not feeling great about it. Now that it’s over (which is kind of sad), we feel lucky that Sarah was recommended to us. Working with her easily paid for itself, and I can’t imagine us being in a better spot right now."
