We just had the pleasant experience of buying a condo in the atrium and wanted to let you know how pleased we were with our agent, Valerie Tutor. We found her to be very knowledgeable, easy to get along and communicate with and extremely responsive. Valerie went out of her way to help us even after the close. She made several trips to the Atrium to meet a locksmith and change a storage key. Before the closing she made a special effort to let us in so our children could see the condo. She also made arrangements for us to meet contractors and a decorator. She couldn’t have been more helpful or made the experience more pleasant. You have an outstanding agent in your office!

Since there are no negative experiences let me list some positive things about my experience with Valerie Tutor.Timeliness, enthusiasm, positivity, productivity, thoughtfulness, consideration and helpfulness. I have a few words about Valerie’s cheerful nature and compassion. She certainly has a professional attitude about her clients and goes the step further to keep everyone appeased.I enjoyed working with Valerie and am thankful George recommended her.

We could not be happier with both the efforts and outcome of Valerie's work on our behalf. She helped us make our dream of retiring in southwest Florida come true despite several challenges/setbacks. Valerie remained positive and determined to secure the type of property we wanted, and made it happen! We consider ourselves very lucky to have her as our realtor and trusted friend. If you are looking for a professional realtor who delivers high quality personal service, choose Valerie Tutor. You will not be disappointed!

Valerie is a great realtor and trust worthy person. I know her from my recent purchase in Sanibel, strongly recommends her as you realtor. Additionally, she is a very nice person that inspires you trust. She really knows what she is doing.

My husband and I made several trips to Sanibel looking at properties to purchase prior to meeting Valerie. Not being from the area, we found there was much to learn about owning property on Sanibel. We made one trip to meet with Valerie. We found her to be very knowledgeable about Sanibel and actively involved in various organizations/committees on the island. Valerie was responsive to emails, phone calls, and text messages. Though we did not expect an immediate response, she acknowledged receipt of any such communication and let us know when we could expect a response if it had not already been provided. Valerie kept us informed throughout the closing process. If you are looking for someone will look out for your interest, Valerie is the person. We are glad that we met her and will use her again when the opportunity presents.

We just recently purchased and closed on a condo at the Sanibel Inn that Valerie found for us. It was our first time buying property in Florida and Valerie made what could otherwise be a stressful transaction into a wonderful experience. From the moment we met Valerie at an open house on Sanibel she was kind and gracious with her time and expertise. She followed up with us immediately later that afternoon and found us exactly what we asked for. Valerie was a pleasure to work with, always prompt, knowledgeable and resourceful. My wife and I are both financial executives from New Jersey so it’s fair to say we have high standards and expectations when it comes to financial transactions, deadlines and responsiveness. We couldn’t be more pleased with the level of service we received from Valerie. Anyone would be very fortunate to have her as their realtor.

My husband and I just bought our first home on Sanibel Island. Valerie took great lengths of time to show us many homes on our two trips to Florida. On the second trip we finally decided on one. As we drove around the island (and some on the mainland) Valerie gave us not only the history of SW Florida and Sanibel/Captiva, she also pointed out the new and exciting things that are happening in the area.Valerie took us step by step through the process in record time. We did not even feel the need for an attorney at closing. Valerie will be our recommendation for any buyer or seller in the area for years to come.

Professional, hardworking, respectful and caring is the best way to describe Valerie Tutor. We were extremely pleased with the way she handled the purchase of our new home in Sanibel. Real estate negotiations are never easy as a lot of emotions are normally involved. Choosing her to handle this transaction proved to be a very good match. She looked after our interests and negotiated 100% on our behalf. She was supported by a good team inside John R. Wood Island Real Estate. What made Valerie's performance outstanding was how she handled the 'after sales' process. As a long-time resident of Sanibel she is well connected with the local community. She pays close attention to detail and makes sure that nothing ever slips through the cracks. She put us in contact with insurance agents, the relevant utilities as well as pool cleaning, garden and pest control services. We were very impressed with her dedication 'to make everything happen'. We couldn't have asked for a better experience or set of results. We strongly recommend her and truly thank her and the John R. Wood Island Real Estate team for all their time and effort.

We have been very fortunate for several reasons. A few years ago we purchases a very nice home in the water’s edge neighborhood. It was a vacation home which we enjoyed about one week a month. We had a boat and took advantage of the marina, the proximity to the river and the opportunity to see the area by water.When the time came to sell the property we were again fortunate to engage thee expert and knowledgeable assistance of Valerie Tutor. Not only was she very familiar with the real estate opportunities in the area but she has a keen eye and understands what a buyer is looking for. Her advice to us was invaluable, not only from the initial listing but using the best resources to promote or home and show it at its best. She always kept us informed of the process and the progress; being sure that everything was done very professionally but without any intrusion or inconvenience to us, Valerie, as we have come to know her, is not only an asset to the real estate profession but now she is our trusted friends. Our first call will be to Valerie should we find ourselves back in the South Florida area.
