Patty Valdes makes buying a house as easy as pie. Key lime pie, to be exact. That's because Patty is not only a top-notch Realtor, who helps buyers find the house of their dreams; she's also a crackerjack baker, whose key lime pies, oatmeal raisin cookies, and other gourmet specialties are acclaimed, throughout Vero Beach.
What clients rave about most however, is her professionalism and open, straightforward style, an approach to the real estate market that infuses clients with confidence. Patty was in the first class given in the United States by the NAR for the Green Sustainable Property Designation.
"Patty's professional attitude and her unwavering display of honesty add to her character. She's our realtor for life."
-- Joyce, Grand Harbor
"She's honest, caring, and sincere. Patty is one of those exceptional people who can combine a professional manner with a personal touch - along with an extensive knowledge of Vero. She's the best."
--John & Carol, Connecticut
As a Realtor with more than eighteen years in general and developmental real estate in Indian River County, Patty knows the area inside and out. She has the lowdown on private golf and boating communities, after seven years on the real estate staff of Grand Harbor. She's also got her finger on the pulse of the education scene, as a former substitute teacher in one of the city's top public elementary schools and as the parent of two local high school graduates. One of her children graduated from St. Edward's School and the other from Vero Beach High School.
When she's not wheeling and dealing on behalf of her clients, where can Patty be found?
You might find her fishing on the Blue Cypress Lake or in the Atlantic. A former resident of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, Patty cut her teeth fishing for Walleye.
Or, you would find her working for Habitat for Humanity, where her background in building business comes in handy. At Habitat, she's helping to raise money for a house sponsored by the Indian River Board of Realtors.
Then again, you may find her in the kitchen, whipping up a bonus treat for a client - perhaps just for you!
Patty says: "Finding the right piece of property is the most important mission and by the end of the process we will hopefully become good friends!"
