LOCAL RESIDENTIAL SPECIALIST AND CERTIFIED HOME STAGER
The fact that Lily Vallario recently received a Lifetime Achievement Award in her field speaks volumes about her consistent success as a real estate professional covering the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area. She prefers to measure that success by the satisfaction of her discerning clientele rather than by the over 700 homes she has sold since embarking on her real estate career in 2004. Taking a personal interest in every client, she listens to their needs and concerns, analyzes every aspect, down to the smallest detail, and proceeds to meet and exceed their goals and expectations. “Customer service has always been paramount for me,” Lily says, “I owned a restaurant and understand the importance of service, I always tried to make my customers’ experience memorable, and one they would share with family and friends. I apply that same formula to my real estate practice.”
Lily has also mastered the skill of negotiation. “I present my client’s case in the best light, protect their interests at all times, and keep all the information strictly confidential,” she says. “If any problems come up, I consider them challenges to be approached and solved quickly and calmly.”
When negotiating the purchase or sale of a home, it pays to have in-depth knowledge of the local and regional real estate market. Lily’s market knowledge is unsurpassed because, as she says, “I breathe real estate. I’m immersed in it every day. I take the time to learn about the market so I can educate my clients and have a clear advantage going into each home search and transaction.” That market knowledge transcends real estate. For Lily, true success can only be measured in terms of client satisfaction. Her loyal clients and the referrals they send are more valuable to her than all the REALTOR® awards and accolades she’s won.
Lily’s marketing savvy comes into play as well when she is selling a home for her client. Not only is she knowledgeable in traditional forms of print, electronic and internet advertising and marketing, she is also a Certified Home Stager. That means her clients’ homes are always presented in the most attractive, design-conscious way possible.
Whether the client is a first-time home buyer or seller, an affluent professional in the market for a high-end property, or a seasoned investor, Lily offers a comprehensive package of expertise to ensure an efficient, expeditious transaction. In addition, she speaks Spanish fluently. That’s a real advantage in the diverse D.C. Metro marketplace.
