Testimonials Page

Lisa & Jim provided us invaluable assistance in the purchase of our vacation home in Carson Valley, Nevada. Their knowledge and expertise of the real estate market in this area enhanced our ability to locate exactly what we wanted within our budget. They gave us all the time we wanted with patience and professional courtesy of the highest order. Both were always available, reachable, to answer any of our questions. The whole experience at each phase of the process was superior to any other agent we have worked in the past. More importantly, they helped us avoid a couple of serious pitfalls in some of the properties that we were exploring. We have never before encountered this level of excellence - the perfect balance of professionalism, good sense of humor, patience, understanding and diplomacy. If we come across anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Carson Valley and beyond, we will strongly recommend Lisa & Jim as the "GO TO Team". Vjay and Rachel Bangera Bought a Home and vacant Lot in Topaz Ranch Estates
Lisa Wetzel and husband Jim Valentine are a truly professional and expert team. Our purchase was was difficult and complicated because it was HUD owned and somewhat distressed and involved other bidders. We ended up buying the property at a fair price and avoided several potential pitfalls due to their advice and guidance. Furthermore, we were out-of-state buyers, buying on a VA loan. Lisa and Jim truly made this deal happen. Lesser agents take note; this is how you get the job done! John and Sharon Budman

I am a mortgage lender in the Carson Valley area and have worked with Jim and Lisa over the last 21 years. It is always a pleasure to participate in a transaction with them. They are extremely knowledgeable about the Carson Valley and all outlying areas. They have terrific negotiations skills and always do what is best for their client. I would highly recommend Jim and Lisa to assist you with your real estate needs. Jessica Jensen
As my first time dealing with a realtor, I was pleasantly surprised with the professionalism and depth of knowledge in the Northern Nevada reality market displayed by Jim Valentine and Lisa Wetzel. I was initially drawn to them by their very informative web site. It just got better from there, They took me under their wing and guided me through the complex process of sorting through a mass of listing information that helped me decide what I really needed in a house, and what community would best serve my needs. Along the way they gave much useful advice on strategies and other sage bits of advice to help me work through the buying process, All of this from over 350 miles away, as I was moving to Nevada from out of state. Several times they sent me video footage they took for me of a prospective house to save me a long drive. It took several months and three offers but I got the house of my dreams, and I owe that to the advice and support of Jim and Lisa ... Big Time Thanks! Jim Beeler ... Bought a home in Stagecoach Nevada

Nevada. We thinking of listing with Jim & Lisa at this time. They have always been very helpful and I would recommend them to anyone. Lee & Jeane Cox
Very helpful in finding "just the right place" Took their time and worked with all the ups and downs with a "new" lending officer. Could not have been as successful without them. Great TEAM Jackie Kizer Grdnerville, NV Home Buyer
As first time home buyers, we were very nervous. So, we asked family and friends if they knew a realtor that was patient, honest, and reliable. My sister recommended Lisa and Jim. When we met Lisa and Jim they met those criteria beyond my expectations. They are very knowledgeable of the real estate market that's constantly changing. When certain situations came up, Lisa and Jim were very supportive and comforting. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anybody. They are the best out there. Thank you once again for everything you did for us! Happy Homeowners :) Bianca Mendoza ... Home Buyer Indian Hills

I recommend Jim and Lisa will all my heart! They are "five star" on all of your categories. One of the most ethical caring teams I have met in 30 years of previous real estate experience. Judie Brierly PsyD ... Genoa, Nevada
Jim and Lisa did an absolutely amazing job representing me when I bought a northern Nevada 4-plex in February 2014. They were very knowledgeable of the market in the area and of buying an investment property in general. As a first time investment buyer I needed a lot of education and hand holding to feel comfortable going through with the deal. At all time Jim and Lisa were guiding me patiently through the process. I never felt hurried, or pushed to go in any particular direction on any of the properties we looked at. Jim and Lisa provided valuable insight as we negotiated the terms and demonstrated the highest level of professionalism all the way to closing. Either Jim or Lisa were always reachable, returning my phone calls, emails, or text messages any time I had a question. I would not hesitate to ask Jim and Lisa to represent me again next time I make a purchase or sale. Markus Lenzer ... Bought a 4-plex in Fernley, Nevada
I am very grateful that my husband and I encountered Lisa Wetzel and Jim Valentine for the purchase of our first home in 2010. They offer a surplus of valuable information for anyone who is buying or selling their home to ensure that the best decision is made. Lisa and Jim are professionals and are good at what they do. They ensured to keep us updated on any changes in status and walked us through any processes that were unclear for us. They made sure that we were comfortable moving forward before any final decision was made. Because of our satisfaction with the purchase of our home we contacted Lisa & Jim to help my father who was underwater with his home last year. They were very attentive in taking care of my father’s short-sale and were able to get it off his hands in less than five months! There is no doubt in my mind that the process went by so fast because of their valuable knowledge and experience. My husband and I recommend Team Lisa and Jim for any real estate needs. Ray and Laura Murphy ... Bought Home in Gardnerville
Lisa and Jim are powerful agents who can guide your through the complicated process of buying or selling real estate, avoiding the pitfalls and arriving at your goal unscathed! and Delighted! :O) Linda Thompson ... Broker Falls Church Virginia
I referred my friend and client, Wendy, to Lisa and Jim to help her find a home in the Carson Valley. Wendy had very specific parameters and it was a real challenge finding the right home. I had already sold Wendy's house in Incline Village so she was under a time crunch, too. Once Lisa found the perfect home, she had to use her impressive negotiating skills to make it all happen at the right price and right time. Lisa was wonderful and made it happen for Wendy! I would high recommend Lisa and Jim to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Carson Valley. Peg Augustus ... Broker Incline Village, Nevada

I have known Jim and Lisa both professionally and personally for decades and appreciate their intimate knowledge of Carson Valley real estate, and also their commitment to professionalism. They are willing to truly understand your needs in order to get the job done right. Greg Painter ... Painter Construction
Lisa was WONDERFUL to have as an agent. She took her time looking for just the right homes for us to look at. She listened to everything we wanted in a home, brought us to many different areas that we didn't know about, being we were from the Midwest. She helped us find the right home to buy and was great with helping us get through all the paperwork!! We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to find their dream home!! Amy Urbonya-Puzzo ...
