I was raised in Buffalo, NY and after marriage my husband and I relocated to Denver, Colorado where I honed my RE skills. For 25 years I worked for a Major Real Estate Company with their Property Management Department, meeting with clients, showing rental properties and helping clients relocate to the Denver Area. In 2005 my relocation skills came in handy when we moved from Colorado to Florida where I worked with Prudential RE until the local office relocated. At that time, I went to work with Charles Rutenberg Realty and remained with them for the last 8 years.
I love living in Central Florida and have been active and held executive positions in the Osceola Women’s Council of Realtors. This experience paved the way for me to become a Director of the Osceola Board of Realtors from 2013 – 2016.
I am actively involved in the Solivita Community, a member of the Western NY Club and a Volunteer at the St. Lima Food Pantry. I love living in Solivita and play pickleball and golf when I am not out selling Central Florida properties. Call me today at 407-288-7992 and I will be happy to introduce you to Solivita and the surrounding communities.
Lorraine was exceptional to work with. She was so diligent and responsible in handling a very stressful time in our lives in selling our home. I can only say the best about Lorraine Valdes and Bella Verde Realty, she was terrific to work with! I give Lorraine 10 stars!
We could not have chosen better real estate agents than Lorraine & Debbie! From initial contact to the final closing, they were always available, responsive, thorough and professional! Since we were out of town throughout the listing and sales period, their experience, assistance with every detail and communication were invaluable, providing us a fast sale at the price we had hoped for! I would highly recommend Lorraine and Debbie to anyone looking for the very best realtors for their home sale or purchase!
We just wanted to thank you so much for all the help you gave us during our recent house sale. You were on the ball from start to finish, and we really appreciate that you made what could have been a difficult time in our lives, relatively easy. We are somewhat surprised that have still heard nothing from “Titlesmith” to inform us that the sale has gone through – but hey – maybe that is different in the USA. As we realized when money appeared in our bank this must have happened. Again you gave us an excellent service and we will certainly recommend you and Bella Verde Realty to any of our friends. With all best wishes for 2022.
Lorraine Valdes just sold our house and I must say, that in all my years, I have never had a more knowledgeable, experienced and well prepared agent handle the sale of our home. Lorraine keeps you informed, responds promptly and handles all issues without hesitation. She is a skilled professional and I recommend her without reservation.
Lorraine is very congenial, honest and experienced…She prepared me every step of the sale from day one to closing. I highly recommend Lorraine and her company to anybody. I really had a very satisfying experience with her, exceptional person and exceptional service.
