I am Edmonton born and raised, with Chilean and French-Canadian background. I was raised by my mother, who has been working for over 25 years in the field of Human Rights, and my father, in Spanish radio & sports television. I grew up in an amazing blended family with 6 siblings, all of which I am very close to and proud of.
I grew up in South East Edmonton, attended Austin O Brien High school then the University of Alberta. In my teen years, I participated in Flamenco & hip hop dance, high school musicals and continued my love of singing, as now I write and record my own music.
With my degree in Psychology and Linguistics from the U of A, I was a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority. I am now an active member of the alum club and I am very involved with the philanthropies we support, associated with literacy.
Travel is a great love of mine; I have parasailed in Bali, ate sushi in Tokyo, scuba-dived at the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and wandered the beaches of Chile. I believe I can connect with clients over many things, and I am always open to learning more and more about them and their experiences.
My real estate experience is in Edmonton & surrounding areas, in homes and investment properties. My passion is to serve my clients with my knowledge and experience, and make the transaction as pleasant & stress-free as can be. Let me be YOUR realtor, and know I am working hard for YOU!
The purchase a home is one of the most important decisions that people can invest in. Whether the homes intent is to provide the healthy environment for a growing family or to present to investors the goal of a financial gain tomorrow, Yvonne understands these plans and her successful track record with satisfied Buyer’s proves this.
“Yvonne helped me purchase my first home and was great help in a short time frame. Then 10 months later when my company relocated me she was there again. She helped me have a quick turn over, went above and beyond my expectations advertising and hosting open houses, and was also available to help me with any home issues as I was not in town. Yvonne showed exemplary commitment to me and my needs. Thank you"!
I recently sold my townhouse with the assistance of Yvonne Valdes. I am a first time home-seller so I had a lot of anxiety and tons of questions about the process. Yvonne was extremely patient with me and walked me through the process completely, alleviating any worries. I would absolutely recommend Yvonne for friends and family and would definitely use her services in the future should I ever buy or sell again!
"Yvonne is a great team mate and her work ethic proved her value to me throughout the process of buying my first home. Whenever I had any questions or concerns she was on the ball and had a great turnaround time providing answers. Her representation pays for itself, and I'll be keeping in touch for my next purchase."
