Client Testimonials

Valerie and her team demonstrated an extensive knowledge of the healthcare real estate market and worked effectively with me to sell our projects and maximize the value delivered to DaVita.

Arthur Richey

Genesis KC Development, LLC

As a retired nephrologist and former dialysis business and property owner for more than 30 years, I am happy to recommend the professional services of Valerie Cook and her team for the sale or acquisition of any investment property.

David Rose, M.D.

Nephrologist in Belleville, IL

During the marketing process, Valerie was instrumental in assisting us with the negotiation of a lease extension with Fresenius (tenant), which allowed us to add lease term to the property, thus increasing the value of the asset and putting more money in our pocket at the time of sale.

For me credibility and trust are the cornerstones of any business relationship and Valerie shines in those areas. We will be using Valerie for any and all commercial real estate transactions in some capacity in the near future.
