About meAs a single mom with a successful real estate career, Valerie Fitzgerald ascribes to the belief that you can achieve anything in life that you set your mind to - as long as you believe in your own personal power.

Over the last 20 years, Valerie has risen to the top of the real estate world by single-handedly building a multi-million dollar real estate business from the ground up, establishing her own charity foundation, and speaking to thousands of people around the country at numerous business conventions. Her talent for the real estate business along with her drive for success have put her on Coldwell Banker’s Top 10 Agents Nationwide list, and earned her the prestigious honor of being recognized as the real estate agent with the highest residential real estate sales volume in Los Angeles County in 2000.

Valerie’s successful real estate career has earned her the top Los Angeles Residential Real Estate Agent recognition for the Los Angeles Business Journal. She has appeared on numerous television shows, including multiple segments of “Entertainment Tonight”, MTV’s “Cribs”, The BBC and Byron Allen’s show “Every Woman”. As CEO of C.F. Entertainment, Byron Allen asked Valerie on his show to share with women across the country her story of arriving in Los Angeles with nothing but her broken down VW bug and her beautiful baby daughter. Her interview had such an impact on Byron Allen’s audience, that Johanna Castillo of Simon and Schuster, who happened to be watching Valerie’s interview, contacted her to discuss turning her story of determination into a book.

Many ask how she’s able to do it all without succumbing to “real estate agent burnout”. But those who really know Valerie know that she has her finger on the pulse of what it truly means to live your life to the fullest. Valerie learned how to love life and appreciate every day by overcoming emotional, physical, and psychological barriers and setbacks early on. Valerie’s ability to recognize and seize a career change opportunity serves as an inspiration to all working women.
