President & Senior Loan Officer
Although Valerie was born in New York, she has adapted well to life in Greenville, SC. She moved South in 1982 and has since married. She has raised one son and two step-daughters and has been blessed with three grandchildren. She also has two dogs; one puggle (pug/beagle) and a Labradoodle (lab/poodle).
In 1993, after being involved in lending for several years, Valerie started Upstate Mortgage to fill a need in the market to provide more options to potential home buyers and owners – to help those potential home buyers realize their dream of home ownership and to help existing owners refinance into better interest rates.
She specializes in helping first time home buyers buy that perfect home. Additionally, she has also helped countless clients refinance existing mortgages into new mortgages with better rates. The relationships she has formed with her lending vendors over time has allowed Upstate Mortgage the opportunity to beat the competition.
