"I've hired at least six real estate agents in the past and Valerie is by far the best. I have yet to meet an agent that I liked and trusted as much."
"We hired Valerie Winebrenner as our Real Estate agent to assist us in finding and buying a house in suburban Maryland. This was a very challenging undertaking given our many criteria (price, schools, commutes, etc). The process took several months. Valerie's patience, professionalism, and knowledge of the real estate market in this area helped to make our house search ultimately successfully. We would recommend her without reservation and would use her again if we once again needed to relocate."

"My wife and I hired Valerie to help us with the daunting task of finding and purchasing a house. We didn't have a good idea about the type or location of our ideal home, yet Valerie was very accommodating about showing us houses all over Montgomery and Howard County. She gave very honest assessments of each house's strengths and weaknesses and helped us evaluate the best choice for our growing family. Valerie is an excellent negotiator and helped us buy our new home for $30K less than the original asking price. In her role as en exclusive buyer's agent, Valerie represented our interests and made sure we were happy with the outcome of every part of the transaction. We give Valerie our strongest recommendation. Working with her was a true pleasure.”
"Valerie Winebrenner's knowledge, friendliness, expertise and calm demeanor is why we recommend Valerie at Buyer's Edge."
”Buyer’s Edge helped us every step of the way in buying our first house. Our agent, Valerie, took the time to understand our needs and walk us through the process. She was very available to us and made buying a house much less overwhelming. Valerie was professional, very knowledgeable of her field, and was able to help us get the house for $14,000 less than the listed price. We’ve even kept in touch after moving in. We would definitely recommend Buyer’s Edge to anyone looking to buy a house in the area.”
