Valerie Core Realtor

Meet Valerie Core (Team Lead).

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Valerie Core. I am the Associate Broker with Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty in Flagstaff, Arizona. I received my real estate license in 2001. My first position was with Century 21 Centre Point in Phoenix. Within only a few months, I realized that I wanted to expanded my real estate knowledge and diversify myself. I accepted a new position and joined Coldwell Banker Success in North Scottsdale later that year.

In 2003, my husband was transferred to Flagstaff. Thrilled to be back in the home town of my Alma matter (Northern Arizona University class of 2000). In Flagstaff I have worked for new home builders Keepsake Homes and Capstone Homes as a new home Sales Associate and Designated Broker selling new construction homes in Ponderosa Trails and The Summit at Ponderosa Trails, Farmhouse Estates, Forest Highlands Golf Club, Anazasi Ridge and Flagstaff Ranch Golf Club.

Selling new and resale homes in Flagstaff I was proudly ranked as one of the top 20 selling real estate agents in Flagstaff in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017 and the specializing in Ponderosa Trails since 2003!

During my free time, I enjoy traveling, skiing and taking long strolls with my husband, Brodie and our rescue dogs Nola and Tux. We have two girls Victoria and Charlotte, that attend Flagstaff Basis.  Both girls are active in Flagstaff Snow Sharks Swim Team and Flagstaff Soccer Club.

My Philosophy

Regardless of how many homes I sell I never cease to feel satisfaction of providing only the highest levels of service and integrity to my clients. I will work hard to find the home that fits your needs, as well as protecting your interests when you find its time to sell a property.  Selling new construction homes in Flagstaff is my passion. I am a people person by nature. I pride myself on working hand-in-hand with my clients to help them achieve their goal of purchasing a home. Working closely with my buyers, guiding them through the process of building the home of their dreams, which, for many, is their single biggest investment. I will work hard to find the home that fits your needs, as well as protecting your interests when you find it time to sell a property.  “My greatest reward is knowing I have helped so many people fulfill the American dream of owning their own home.”

Meet Freddi Paulsrud (Team Lead)

I have been involved in new construction projects in Flagstaff as far back as Continental Country Club in the early 1980s, through our newer golf course communities of Flagstaff Ranch, Forest Highlands and Pine Canyon. My knowledge of Flagstaff and the real estate trends over the past 40 years are important to any seller or buyer looking for a real estate professional.

My greatest joy is making home ownership a reality for the young couples who were just toddlers themselves when I helped their parents buy their first home in Flagstaff. Whether you are selling your two million dollar home or purchasing your first condominium, my focused listening and negotiating skills, combined with a depth of understanding of Flagstaff real estate, result in successfully facilitating the most important transaction of all … YOURS!

Meet our Client Care Manager…………Nina Bedatsky
