"Valerie was available, knowledgeable, personable, in tune to your wishes, prompt follow up, in general a pleasure to work with, with a commendable supporting cast, negotiating well and providing necessary perspectives and information to achieve the desired home at the right price. Valerie was great!"
"Valerie was amazing. Her expertise and familiarity with the location we were looking was invaluable. She noticed details that we missed on numerous homes and pointed out issues for us to consider that we would otherwise not have thought of. She knew exactly when to tell us to exercise patience and exactly when to tell us to jump on something. We will be recommending her to anyone that asks."
"Valerie and her team were wonderful to work with! They are very professional, extremely responsive, and have excellent follow up. Valerie has many years of experience and is truly the best in her field. She made the entire process seamless. I would highly recommend the Bertsch Team if you are looking to buy or sell your home!"

"Valerie helped me with a realistic assessment of our home. We had planned to make major improvements previous to any showings. Valerie used comps and her experience of selling in Medford Lakes to talk me out of renovations that would not have been to our benefit. We would have exhausted ourselves to no avail. We did the minimum of township certifications, house and yard spruce up. The result of her accurate listing price and beautiful photo display was a viable offer within hours of putting the house on the market! Well done Valerie!"
"My husband and I were very pleased with Kelly from the beginning to the end of our search for the perfect rental property. Kelly was very knowledgeable, she responded to our emails and texts in a timely manner. Whatever questions we had, if she didn’t have the answers she would get the answers and get back to us. Due to the rental demand we had started giving up on looking for a place, but the Compass team didn’t give up, they continued to send us daily emails with rental properties and stayed in communication with us until we found a place. We’re very pleased with our place and we have Kelly to THANK for all her hard work with showing us places, negotiating, great customer service skills and for treating us like family!!! WE would definitely recommend Kelly and the Compass Team to our friends and families for real estate services. KELLY, Thank You for EVERYTHING!!! "

"Val & Kelly were everything we needed them to be throughout the entire process. Responses were prompt and, even in this challenging market, they were fun & upbeat. At one point I was frustrated and said to Kelly, “What a journey”! She smiled and sweetly replied, “And we’re going to keep on journey-ing”! We did and found a great home. Next came selling our little cabin: No time was wasted. The property photos were top notch and the weekend showing was successful. I can’t say enough about this team’s professionalism. Even when we got rattled, Val & Kelly saw things through. Thank you Bertsch Team!"
Greg & Margie
"Our experience selling our home with Valerie and her team was terrific! She has many years of experience in our local market and her insights, knowledge, and expertise are apparent. From our initial meeting, thru closing, she was always very professional, well informed, level headed, and understanding. Valerie helped us get top dollar for our home while managing the process seamlessly. I highly recommend Valerie and her team to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home!"
"I was dreading the whole process but Valerie made it sail by like a dream. With her help, I priced my home to sell and I had several viable offers in the first week. Valerie had given me some indispensable advice to do a couple of things to move the house and it worked. Despite some problems with the house Valerie was able to keep the buyer interested in the price range I had set. She knew I put a lot into this home. This was my first home and my first home sale and I feel it was a success. The team worked hard at rapidly obtaining necessary documents for me to complete my sale. Valerie is a good counselor who understands the emotions that go into this decision process."
"We recently closed on our house with this fantastic team on our side. We personally dealt with Theresa and I have to say she was so dedicated and patient with us. She was determined to find us the perfect home in our budget and she did. She was very considerate with our needs and our schedule. She was just fantastic."
"Calling Valerie was definitely a good decision. The entire process, from pricing, to negotiating multiple offers, right through closing went very smoothly. Valerie and her team really know their stuff, and are also very nice to work with."
