Sold and purchased a home with Valerie Thompson. Valerie made the entire process very smooth and stress free. Her knowledge and professionalism is very valuable when going through the whole experience. I am extremely grateful for her and Roohan Realty. – Dianne Tanner, March 2024

I cannot recommend Val enough! As an agent myself, I know how ruthless the market currently is and she single handedly helped us beat the tough competition we had with her negotiation skills. Without her help, closing on our dream house would have been much more difficult. 5 stars!!! – Alex, January 2024

Val Thompson is a top-notch agent. She represented the buyer when I sold my home. Val’s diligence in searching for a home for her client led her to introduce herself when she had learned I was getting ready to list my home for sale. She was a strong advocate and negotiator for her client while also being super pleasant, clear, prompt, and fully responsive in all communications from first meeting through closing. Val’s vigilance and diligence facilitated a smooth and prompt transaction. I highly recommend Val Thompson. – January 2024

Val Thompson from Roohan Realty was incredible to work with while my fiance and I were looking for our new home. We must of looked at 10-15 homes over the course of a year and not once did Val try and push us in a direction we were not comfortable with. Because of her patience, we were able to just close on our dream home exactly where we want to be recently and realizing that the best house we looked at was the one we ended up buying shows how great it is to work with someone so professional and nice. I could not recommend Val more if you are looking for your first or third home. – Colin O’Reilly, October 2023

Simply put, Valerie Thompson at Roohan Realty is the best there is. You know those real estate shows on TV where an intuitive, friendly Realtor is totally on top of everything, communicative with their clients, in lockstep with what their buyers want, and knows the market like the back of their hand? We thought it was pure fiction until we met Val. She was there for us every step of the way, guiding us through the process and even going above and beyond to wrangle everyone else involved. I swear she can see through walls, too. She not only helped us find exactly what we were looking for but also showed us houses to confirm what we didn’t want, which was extremely helpful and gave us complete confidence when it was time to make an offer. Honestly, we’re a little sad our homebuying adventure is over – we have our dream house, but now we don’t get to talk to Val every day. She’s a gem and we can’t recommend her enough. – Kevin Weaver, August 2023

We are so happy with our decision to work with Val on the sale of our home. From the day we met her, she was engaged, motivated and was always by our side. She provided great counsel and advocated for us every step of the way. We listed quickly, had multiple offers at and above our list price, and closed with ease. She was responsive and supportive throughout the entire process, and she was fun to work with! We will be recommending her to anyone we know looking for a realtor. – Danette Kadlic, May 2023

Wow what a whirlwind! We had to sell our house in Saratoga Springs quickly because of a new job opportunity in another state. Valerie Thompson was recommended by a trusted friend. She was phenomenal! So kind, understanding, upbeat and personal. She gave us great advice and we had 4 offers after the first open house, which drove up the price. I highly, highly recommend Val as an agent for the sale of your home. We just loved her and will miss her now that we moved away! Thank you Val….you’re the best! – Gail Pelli, January 2023

Val was always there helping me navigate this sale, she made this easy for me. 

Val was of inestimable assistance during the whole process of buying our new home. She was there at every turn to help out with negotiations, house issues, paperwork, etc. She returned texts/emails promptly and and let us know of any issues very promptly. On top of all of that, we enjoyed her company! I am looking forward to working with her when I’m ready to put my current home on the market.

Valerie represented us with the utmost attention. She was responsive to all our questions, and she provided excellent advice as issues arose during the construction of our new home. Valerie has a sterling reputation and it is well earned. – Kathleen Dwyer, January 2023

We used Val a few years ago to buy our family home. After such a great experience with her then, when the time came to sell our old house that we had kept as a rental, Val was our first and only call! She knows the market, but more importantly she’s very warm, honest and we always felt that she truly cared about us and what was in our best interests. Couldn’t recommended her more highly! – Helene Schemitz, September 2022

Val listened and helped us figure out what we wanted and needed in a house. She knew the local builders and each area of town, instructing us on the construction and history of each house we looked at during our search. We ended up buying an unlisted house in our desired neighborhood that Val found. Val went beyond being a realtor and helped us settle in Saratoga Springs where we had no roots. From start to finish she connected us to excellent people, from our mortgage lender to the contractor doing a small renovation on our house. It was extremely valuable to have a local with vast knowledge and connections in the area. She was wonderful to spend time with, but most importantly she found us an unlisted house, negotiated a great deal, and helped us navigate our first home purchase during a crazy market from early days to closing day. Picking her for our house search was the right decision that led to dozens of right decisions.

Val made the process of selling our home smooth painless. Her knowledge of the area, established relationships with other agents, and thorough approach allowed us to make smart decisions and accomplish what we wanted. We highly recommend her.

I cannot recommend Valerie enough! She was so delightful to work with and made the selling process so easy and stress free for me. Through every step of the way I truly felt she had my best interests in mind. Thank you Val for everything! – RaeAnne Rounds, June 2022

Val Thompson is the best realtor…. EVER. Once again, Val did the work & got our property sold as promised. The support from Roohan Realty is always above & beyond as well. Thank you again. – Britt Carmer

Working with Val Thompson on both the purchase and sale of my house was a fantastic experience. Val is naturally on top of everything and knowledgeable about the market, but her personality is what sets her apart. If you want to enjoy the home buying/selling experience, Val Thompson is the realtor you need. – Ryan Balzer, April 2022

Val is very professional and I would highly recommend her. She gets the job done. It was a pleasure working with her. – Lori Smero, April 2022

I have sold two properties with Val Thompson and I can’t say enough good things about her. She made the process so easy. Easy to work with, very communicative and kept me updated every step of the way. Answered any questions I had. It was a pleasure working with her and I wouldn’t ever hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. – Margaret Danison, March 2022

Working with Val as our real estate agent was not only a pleasure but a relief. Knowing that your agent has your best interest in mind is so helpful when dealing with the stress of buying and or selling a home. We have worked with Val on the purchase, of our first home, and on the sale and subsequent purchase of our new home. She is an excellent realtor and is known for being persistent and meeting deadlines. Even with our time restricted contingency sale, Val went above and beyond to ensure that everything went as smooth as possible. – Christina Rabideau

My husband and I recently closed on our new home with Valerie Thompson as our realtor. As residents of Florida, it was impossible to view new listings in a timely fashion given the current real estate market. Valerie came to the rescue not only keeping us informed of new listings, but also by viewing the properties with us via FaceTime. With Valerie’s unwavering dedication, we ultimately closed the deal on a charming little cape in Glenville. Without Valerie and her hard work, dedication, knowledge, connections and commitment to us, this never would have happened. The particularly difficult seller was challenging at best, but Valerie handled the situation with grace and integrity. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. Valerie is a true expert at what she does and we thank her from the bottom of our hearts! – Doreen Stoquert, January 2022

I am a real estate paralegal and since I work in the business I thought selling my home would be difficult in terms of the process but Val made it so much easier. She is honest in her advise and I trusted all she had to say and she never steered me wrong. She knows the market and priced the home perfectly and it sold very quickly. She works well with everyone. She is number one and I would never buy or sell a home without her. – Karen Semenza, December 2021

Valerie is a perfect agent. Val knows the market, so well, and provides her guidance based on experience and expertise, which is so helpful. – Jon Haas, November 2021 

Val was fantastic! She is a very dedicated real estate agent. She was very quick to return calls. Very knowledgeable and caring. She helped guide us through the whole process. We were grateful to have her in our corner. She goes above and beyond. You would be lucky to have her sell your home or help you find your dream home. – Jill Hancock, November 2021

It was a pleasure to work with Val Thompson during my recent home search. Val was very professional. She is an outstanding agent. She protected our interests throughout the entire process. I have absolute confidence in her abilities, she found me a desirable home in the perfect location. – Susan Murphy, September 2021

Valerie Thompson is the best realtor in the area. She is overly communicative, responsive, and extremely helpful throughout the entire buying/selling process. She’s very knowledgeable about the area/real estate trends, and I would highly recommend her. We’ve now worked with Valerie on buying two houses, and she’s not only been our realtor but is now a wonderful friend of our family. – Chelsea Garofalo, September 2021

Val is now part of the family after seeing our home and helping us secure a rental while we build our dream home. Val went above and beyond and was always a phone call or text away. We cannot thank her enough! – Stephanie & Jeff Marcinko, June 2021

Val Thompson was a consummate professional. Her advice on price, marketing, strategies were spot on. Her negotiations, when necessary (wasn’t much) and advice were also always excellent. I would give the experience a 10 out of a 10. – John Henley, June 2021

Val is hands down the best agent that I have ever worked with. She has represented me for several purchases and sales for 20 years. She has also represented several of my friends and family members. A+ all the way!!!!! – Joseph Sims, February 2021

My husband and I are extremely grateful for Val’s help in finding our first home. She is very easy to work with and made our house hunting experience enjoyable. It is clear that Val is knowledgeable and passionate about Saratoga. We received excellent advice throughout the whole process. She was flexible with our schedule, going as far as writing an offer for our new home on Thanksgiving Day. While working tirelessly to find us the right home, Val never made us feel any pressure. We would recommend Val to anyone looking to purchase a home in the area! – Ben & Caroline, February 2021

Val was phenomenal to work with! I was an out of state relocation move which complicated the already complex process of buying a house and I also had the unfortunate experience of having Quicken Loans as my mortgage lender (they are HORRIBLE! DO NOT USE!!!). Val helped me navigate this mess and kept me sane through it all. Her knowledge and connections in the industry are invaluable and I highly, highly recommend her and Roohan Realty! – Jessica Samler, January 2021

Earlier this year we used Val from Roohan Realty to help us sell our home. This review is for working with Val to have a new home built with McPadden Builders. We had met Val last year as we began the process of selling our home in order to build a new one with McPadden. Val was extremely helpful throughout the entire process, which was all new to us. She explained how it would work, including selecting a floor plan, choosing additional features, and picking out the right lot. Whenever we had a question, she would always get back to use promptly. When we were ready to move, she provided us with the Moving with Roohan boxes and helped to arrange the moving van, which helped us save time and money. We now have the house we have always wanted and couldn’t be happier! We highly recommend Val to anybody looking to purchase or sell a home. -Jeremy Davis, October 2019

Valerie is the best realtor in Saratoga. Period. She has great knowledge of the local market and the neighborhoods. Val works so hard to help clients find the right property. A real professional! -Terry Monty, September 2019

We stepped into the model home built by McPadden Builders and Valerie Thompson greeted us with a wide smile. Val boasted about Matt McPadden and the pride he took building his homes like he was a brother. Although never pushy, Val reiterated all we had heard about Matt McPadden and his quality of work and honesty. Needless to say, we were sold. Valerie became more of a friend then a Real estate agent for a builder! A sincere person to us throughput the whole building process , a true asset to Roohan Realty. Thank you Val. -Nick and Monica Carl, August 2019

Valerie was amazing! She was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and motivated to find us a home the second we met her. This was my first time buying a home and she made the process seamless – couldn’t have imagined doing it without her. I will 100% use her again if we choose to move down the road and have already told my friends and family about her expertise in the field. We love her! -Megan Morrow, July 2019

Valerie is a knowledgeable and personable professional who did much to facilitate the smooth sale and closing of my home. She was readily accessible and able to provide guidance and information whenever I needed it. Valerie has great interpersonal skills and did a wonderful job of facilitating ongoing conversations between this seller and our buyer, which in the end led to an overall satisfying and gratifying experience. I would highly recommend Valerie and appreciated all of her help! -Inge Carmola, June 2019

Our whole experience with Val was exceptional…we had to sell our house – in a VERY timely fashion – before we could qualify to buy our new house. She was able to connect us with an interested buyer within TWO days. Long story short, within two months we were able to both sell our old house and purchase our new house. Because of Val’s expertise, her connections with good people in the business community, and her humor, we were able to complete a complicated real estate transaction smoothly and competently. I would recommend her to anyone, and already have! -Patricia Tschannen, April 2019

We could not have done it without Val! She seamlessly sold our home and got us into the home we had our hearts set on! I highly recommend Val and the Roohan realty team, they know how to get it done! -Brittany Bryant, April 2019

Val – was just a joy to work with. She make the whole experience feel effortless. I am definitely recommending her to all my friends that are looking to build. She and Matt make such an amazing combination! -Elizabeth Dicecco-Roots, February 2019

Valerie Thompson was very helpful and professional. She showed us all the different models that McPadden has developed. We are getting up there in age and we wanted to look at models with one floor only. No pressure. -Valerie Tomeck, December 2018

Our realtor Valerie Thompson was amazing! She was so helpful with our new home search and very understanding when we looked at over a dozen homes. We enjoyed her so much that 3 years later we used her again to sell our home. Again, she was so very personable and helpful with the selling of our home. We are so disappointed that we moved out of NY state and won’t have her as our realtor in the future! -Anita Simon via Google, August 2018

This was our first build and we had no idea what we were doing, but Val put our minds at ease. Her charm, expertise, and enthusiasm were second to none. She genuinely cared and helped us every step of the way…we just love her. She and Matt are a fantastic team and the McPadden crew were just as amazing. They built us our forever home, making sure every detail was perfect! We were thrilled with the entire experience and are loving our new home. Thank you!!! -Beth Pechtel, September 2017


My wife and I have used Val for 2 purchases and 1 recent sale in the last 8 years. She consistently outperforms our expectations. The night before our recent closing to sell our condo the buyer said the dishwasher wasn’t working during their walk through and wanted to bring in a repair guy to evaluate. I was out of town and knew it was in working order. To save us that expense, and fresh from a root canal, Val went to the unit after hours, figured out why the buyer couldn’t start it, and saved us a contractor call expense and the closing when on without a hitch. Now that is personal service and attention to detail. Val is simply the best realtor we have ever encountered and has become our friend. Best review possible! -Tom Potter (March 2017)

Valerie Thompson is a very professional, knowledgeable agent. Over the years, we have built several homes of our own and bought and sold several income properties and have had many dealings with various realtors. Valerie, is by far, the best realtor that we have ever worked with! She exceeds the standards! During the building process of our new home recently, Valerie made herself available to us immediately, whenever we had any questions or concerns. She is very friendly and relates to people very well. I would highly recommend Valerie Thompson to anyone looking to buy or sell property. She is definitely an asset to your company! -Gail & Ed Decker (2016)

Val is the woman of expertise – very knowledgeable, highly experienced, perceptive, calm and dearly kind. She is considered a trusted friend. -Christine Yakubec (2016)

I feel that Valarie Thompson and Rohan Realty really helped me when I needed them. I would recommend them if ANYONE asked me who they should go to to find a beautiful home. Also Matt McFadden is a wonderful builder and when I’m ready to build I will have him and his construction firm build my home thank you for you did for me -Katherine Height (2016)

Val was above and beyond exceptional: available always, accommodating, to every situation, had a good vision of what my needs were, and an amazing, genuine person/friend. -Clover Schwartz (2016)

Val Thompson was direct, honest, humorous, and helped us make an excellent home purchase.

Val was the most helpful person to us in our home buying process. We went through two other Realtors (not Roohan) prior to Val and really appreciate her expertise and professionalism. Plus she is hilarious! -Rebecca Goldfischer
