The Vallee Gold Team...From "Gold To Sold" Tucson's Friendliest & Most Recognized Realtor"
Hi…and welcome!

I’m living proof that it is completely possible to love what you do for a living!

Each day holds a new set of challenges and result-oriented conclusions for me in finding the perfect home for you. As a wife and mother,I also know how important finding the right neighborhoods and communities are in choosing where you’ll live.

As a real-estate professional, I also know how important the trust factor is, between client and agent. So, think of me as your “stepping stone”; a friend who listens to your dreams and goals and works like crazy to help you achieve them. Researching what potential homes have to offer---based on your individual needs and preferences---excite and motivate me, on a daily basis. I am all about focus. My goal is to not only to satisfy you, but to make your experience with us worry- free, while we exceed your expectations.

Our track record shows that buyers we represent consistently buy for a lower price than our competitors. For sellers, our average listing sells more quickly, at higher prices, than those of our competitors.

I’m also a trained Feng-Shui expert, as a graduate of the Western School of Feng Shui. Effectivelty staging and arranging your home areas can often increase your level of physical comfort and those of potential buyers. A little good karma can’t hurt,huh?

Because of our love of this area, we are passionate in “giving back” to our community by helping others.

Here are my personal “stats:

* I am a licensed (2002), award-winning sales associate, specializing in North/Northwest Oro Valley, ranking in the top 1% of sales of all Tucson agents.
* I am a Certified Residential Specialist, a distinction awarded to just 4% of the Realtors® , nationally.
* I am a Certified Luxury Homes Marketing Specialist, a coveted designation for professionals who provide high - quality service to buyers and sellers of luxury homes.
* Techonolgy rules the world---and the real-estate industry!
I am an ePRO®-certified real estate professional versed in the latest internet technology, aimed at benefiting both buyer and seller.

At the end of the day, just like you, Don and I look forward to unwinding and enjoying our life and surroundings. For us, that fun time is talking walks with our dog, Nico---and sharing good times with our family. It doesn’t get any better than this.

Client Reviews

We've moved four states in the last 10 years...this was our easiest, most efficient and carefree transaction ever! Kathy and Don are communicative, hard working, and accessible. They were even there for us after the move!

We want to extend our deepest appreciation for all the little things you took care of for us. Your persistence and patience helping to finalize our purchase did not go unnoticed. We are glad to have had you as our realtors, and also as our new friends.  A heart-felt thank you! Doug and KathleenThank you for helping us through our first house-buying experience! We really appreciate everything you've done for us.

Just wanted to let you know what a great job you both did on the sale of our existing homes and the purchase of our new home. You were extremely helpful during this entire process. You gave us incredible contacts that helped make our existing home bring in a premium price, and you worked with the realtor on our new home to get us in at a price we felt comfortable with. Overall, your direct efforts resulted in over $36,000 of extra cash in our pocket. Extraordinary performance!Not only do you "know your stuff", but you are both very personable and that makes it a genuine pleasure to work with you. We have dealt with several realtors over the years, and you are one of the few who we totally trust. You were truly focused on our issues and concerns, and worked with us to resolve them as they arose. You did a phenomenal job in both these regards.Frank and Linda

Kathy, you were very patient and accommodating to our needs and whims. You gave us information and very good advise. And so, after many months and many condos, we found a really good match.  You helped us find an extremely thorough home inspector, who was able to track down some major problems. It was you who helped coordinate the massive repair jobs which needed completion prior to close of escrow. It all came together beautifully; because you worked diligently for us during those last two weeks. 

Cheryl D

As first-time home buyers, we were not sure what to expect. From the very first phone call, Kathy made me feel comfortable. She explained the process and offered her qualifications and experience which immediately put me at ease. Kathy and her husband Don work as a team and with the combination of their attention to detail and availability, they made our experience seamless. Kathy was always willing and able to discuss and explain any questions or concerns we had. She was a step ahead, giving us an understanding of how we should proceed through the process. As a novice, it is imperative to have a Realtor with experience and working knowledge of the ever-changing real estate market. Kathy provided us with out- standing service and an up-to-date academic know-how- for our needs. We are pleased and proud to have worked with The Vallee Gold Team and would recommend them to anyone, from first-time homebuyers to seasoned homeowners. 

Cindy a

We couldn't be happier with the service and care we received from Kathy and Don and the rest of the Vallee Gold team.  Our home needs were very specific and required a challenging close date.  Rayma and Don supported us the entire journey, always representing our interests.  If you have a challenging situation and need a realtor to go the extra mile - we highly recommend the Vallee Gold Team.

The Vallee Team has been selling us homes for over 13 years. Trusted and dependable this team will work with you through any situation that may arise. As buyers and sellers Don is consistently available on short notice and has always had a solution to a problem. I trust Don completely with our homes the content and the transactions. We honestly could not have found a better Realtor and friend. Don has extreme integrity and is well connected in the community. If you are looking for a Realtor who knows the market, communities, and contractors for just about anything you must call Don Vallee. Don will go above and beyond the scope of his job to ease the stress of moving.

Helge a

Don and Kathy did a great job for us! Selling one's home is a hard thing to do. The Vallee Gold Team was very knowledgeable and patient in helping us make the decision. Once we decided to sell, Don and his team dove right in, and got us listed and on the market. Most importantly, he got quick results. Good job Don!

We both felt he was representing our best interestes and not just present to tuen over another house.Thank gain for a great job!

The experience of buying a house, although exciting can be somewhat stressful; Don Vallee made our experience truly enjoyable. Anytime that we hit a snag Don would go out of his way to fix the problem. Don's goal seems to be to ensure that his clients spend their time being excited about their new purchase instead of being stressed. Don Vallee was a pleasure to work with.Doug & Stacy Wilson - Superintendent of Marana Unified School District

The Vallee Gold Team sold my home on Tucson. Home had been on market for many months before I hired him. Original realtors were not successful in generating any traffic. Once I listed the home with Don the home sold in 20 days. Customer service was excellent. Great follow through. Great team he has developed. Would not hesitate to use his services again. 

Michelle I

Just wanted to let everybody who reads this that Don and kathy Vallee are one of the most trusted and knowledgeable realtors I have had the pleasure to meet. We came to Tucson not knowing the area or anybody. They took great care in showing us what kind of property that would meet our needs and wants. He had everything done in advance of us meeting him. He picked us up at our hotel and showed us around the Oro Valley area so we could get a feel for it. He made us very comfortable about our purchase of our new home. If this was Trip Adviser, The Vallee Gold Team would get 5 Stars all day long.Thanks Don and Kathy

Cannot say enough about The Vallee Gold Team. They worked very hard to find my husband and I a place to call home. Don took the time to understand what it was we wanted to show us homes comparable to what we asked for to not waste time and I respected that about him. Not only after we found what we wanted he helped in every step through closing to make the home owners experience something to truly celebrate. They will treat you like family and go the extra mile.

Brenda P

Over the years I have worked with many Realtors. Don Vallee is undoubtedly the best so far. I hope to have the pleasure of working with him on other transactions in the future as he is a man that takes a problem and just solves it. No problem seems too big for Don and his good nature is a big part of that.

Iles W

We met Kathy thru Don, her husband as we found him as a realtor in Tucson, Arizona. We listed our house with them which sold in one day! When we told them we were interested in checking out Park City, Utah, they said "Oh, we have an office there and can help you with your search." We communicated  via email and then on our first trip to Park City, was teamed up with Toni Faulk from their office.....and the rest is history! We found exactly what we were looking for in a short period of time and all within budget. They are a super good husband/wife team and their associates are just as awesome, there is a real sense of "Team with no I." Everyone is focused on the same goal and they make it happen!

Kathy O

Don Vallee and his team at Long Realty did a fantastic job selling my mother's home in Tucson. As I live in Chicago and was handling the sale of her home remotely, I needed a professional in whom I could trust and rely. Don and his team were always responsive, always professional and handled all aspects of the sale with tremendous skill. I recommend them without reservation. 

Ned L

We were very happy and pleased during the listing, sale, and escrow closing of our home. With your guidance we were able to procure a qualified buyer and finalize an offer to purchase quickly. Your knowledge of the market and appropriate suggestions were spot on. We are moving forward with the next phase of our lives, and you were part of that.Thanks again for the outstanding service! 

Linden a

My husband and I have been working with Don Vallee for about two years to find us a home in Tucson, relocating from the Los Angeles area. Don's patience, understanding, and expertise guided us through this daunting time of anxiety, frustration and ultimately finding the perfect new home for us to settle into. I can't think of a better person than Don to have worked with during this time.

I had inherited some undeveloped land  that I wanted to sell. I am not familiar with the area and didn't know how to find an agent to help me sell the land. I did a number of searches and found a few agents who either brushed me off, or ignored me. Until I found Kathy. Kathy  was extremely helpful and responsive. She did a lot of the leg work and paperwork to find information about the land I was selling since I did not know the area and have never personally seen the land. Within 1 week of putting the listing up on 2 different MLS, I received an offer and we closed 1 month later. I was so satisfied with her service that I am having her take care of another listing in Utah for me.

Chris C

Great to work with. Kathy listed our property and in no time we had an offer. It was a complicated transaction with involved parties in three different states. Everything was handled electronically, email, e-sign, everything. She made sure everyone knew what everyone else was doing, needed to do,  etc.

Benjamin C

My wife and I toyed with the idea of buying a Condo for several years. Kathy stuck by us and supported our search for the entire time, never showing frustration or lack of support for what must have appeared to be an endless search as we continually changed our parameters of what we wanted. As an investment property, Kathy helped us understand the changing nature of a resort environment. When we finally felt the timing was right for investment, Kathy was very supportive, always meeting our agenda for our cross country trips until we found the condo that we felt comfortable with. Ultimately she helped us make a rapid and effective purchase. We would recommend Kathy to anyone.

The H

After talking with Kathee and letting her know what we were looking for,and that we were in the process of moving to Utah. Kathee started to work on finding a place for us and we were able to close on a place in February of 2016 and we were delighted with Kathee and would recommend her anytime.

George C

Kathy Vallee sold my home in 2016 - - in one day! Her advice on staging and prep which I followed were key, and the phone calls she placed to other top agents in the area led to the rapid, full asking price sale. She is a true pro, knowledgeable about all aspects of the process through to closing. She is digital savvy, too. I highly recommend her for buying or selling a home.

Gene P

Kathy was the perfect professional for us. We contacted her several years ago about purchasing property but due to circumstances had to wait a while to restart our search. In the interim Kathy kept in touch just the right amount providing support and understanding until we were finally ready to move to the area. She paid close attention to our needs and desires and patiently helped us find the perfect home for us. Kathy knows the area and was very helpful with the process. We were very happy to have chosen her as our agent.

Kathleen P

I have had the pleasure of working with Kathy in different parts of the process and not only is she is so knowledgable, she's very personable and it is apparent that she really has made a great effort to know the area. I would recommend her to anyone.

Paul H

Kathryn is highly efficient and responsive while being personable and easy to work with. I appreciate her knowledge and ability to negotiate the seemingly complex process of real estate. Her advice while I was selling my father's home made all of the difference in what could have been a tough  process (both personally and professionally). Kathryn's eye while preparing the house for sale as well as her words of wisdom during the listing process helped immensely. She makes everything look easy! I would recommend her to anyone.

Kathy A

Kathy is very professional and represents clients well. I would highly recommend her. She helped us find a house in 2006 that we still love! She was with us every step of the way.

Tami B

I had a great experience with Kathy Vallee recently in the purchase of a home. I found her to be very knowledgable and helpful in assisting me in buying the best property for my needs. She knows real estate market well and is quite personable to work with. I highly recommend  her and know you will be very happy as I am.

Suzanne T

As a realtor, you couldn't ask for a more gracious and accommodating professional. Kathy always has gone above and beyond for myself and all my referrals including showing properties at the most inopportune times (I send everyone I know in the market for real estate to Kathy)! Upon arriving, I  didn't know the area at all but I was able to rely upon Kathy's expertise to find me a property that met all my family's needs. We couldn't be happier with the house we chose and the location can't be beat. So convenient to schools, activities, and shopping- it was almost as if an old friend picked the house specifically for us knowing exactly what we considered important and necessary for our lifestyle. Thank you, Kathy for your kindness, patience, and hard work!

Ann B

We really loved working with Kathy. She was very knowledgeable about the Park City/Deer Valley area. We had been looking for a home in the area for several years and Kathy was very patient with us and sent us listings throughout the years. She was consistent and patient with us. I would  recommend her to anyone.

Amy H

Kathy is the most thorough agent we have ever worked with and is a true professional. She is extremely competent and sends regular updates on the market, open houses, and tours. She follows up on every lead and I knew she was aggressively marketing our property. Although she was our agent for a  primary residence, we also do real estate investing so we work with a lot of real estate agents and Kathy was the most comprehensive, meticulous agent we have worked with. I would highly recommend her!

Ashley D

Kathy found us the exact condo we were looking for in one day!! The entire process was actually fun and stress free. She is a professional in all aspects. Highly recommend!

Randy S

Don and Kathy were our agents for my recent move to the Tucson area from out of state. They know the area so well I knew we were in great hands. They know all of the neighborhoods inside and out. The team had a very good contact list of trusted service providers that they put at your disposal. Don was able to quickly assess our needs and show us properties according to our schedule. I really can't express what a smooth experience it was working with their team. I can say that I would recommend him and his team without hesitation to anyone looking for a permanent or rental property in the Tucson area. Work with Don and Kathy, you will not be disappointed! 

Elizabeth G

I have been very impressed with the level of service that Kathy Vallee has provided. She was able to guide us in the process of getting our home ready for sale, and was able to orchestrate a great sale price! Highly recommended.

Steve S

I met Kathy from looking at listing on Zillow. Right away I knew I liked Kathy and went no further. We were in the process of looking for a second home, we knew little about the neighborhoods but shared with Kathy what was important to us in this home and throughout the process, Kathy provided listings that met those guidelines. Unfortunately, the market in was tight but together we continued to find homes that met our needs. Kathy was able to share with us a listing that she thought would perfect and it was! We bought the home by video view, fully putting our home purchase trust in Kathy. We arrived a few days later to see the home in person and were more than excited by every detail of our new home. It was everything and more that we were looking for. Kathy goes above and beyond with her clients, she knows where to go for everything as we are not looking at next steps to set up our home. We really couldn't have asked for a better realtor or situation. We look forward to spending time getting to know Kathy! We highly recommend working with Kathy Vallee, she will take care of you, is honest and knows the market well! Thank you, Kathy Vallee. You are a true professional

Karri T

Moving into a new state is stressful enough, but Kathryn Vallee took away all our anxiety and fears. Our timeline needs were met with her guiding and directing us. Our experience with Kathryn was way beyond excellent. Her fast response time to our texts, emails or calls was always within  minutes and she always had the information we were looking for. She is very well organized, courteous and she has your best interests at heart. I highly recommend Kathryn for all of your real estate needs.

Kathleen B

Two words, ultimate professional. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Kathy for one second. Her and the team she surrounds herself with are top notch. Not only have I worked with Kathy in the past, but so have my friends and my family. I consider Kathy and her team my real estate professionals for  life. If you want one of the best realtors out there who also has an immense network of industry related professionals are her disposal, Kathy Vallee should be your choice.
