Valentine joined the KlopasStratton Team in 2020. She has been actively involved in the Chicago real estate market for over sixteen years. Her first job was with Koenig & Strey GMAC as a residential real estate agent representing buyers and sellers. Valentine was excited for another challenge in the residential real estate arena and joined the development sales team of Centrum Properties at CityFront Plaza.
After the successful completion of this project, she moved to commercial real estate at her father’s eponymous firm Howard Ecker + Company, specializing in Tenant Representation. By applying the combined skills learned from her residential sales and her commercial experience Valentine has capitalized on her greatest strengths - providing her clients with excellent customer service, being their go-to resource for all things real estate related, and providing them with solid financial expertise.
She continues to enjoy the long term relationships she has established over her sixteen years in the industry because she cares about quality and reliability. Valentine lives in Glencoe with her husband Marc, daughter Sonnet, and Rhodesian Ridgeback Hildy. She enjoys spending time with her family at Hometown Coffee, cooking, traveling to her family’s home in Mallorca, Spain and designer shoes!
