    Born and raised in the Pioneer Valley, I have a wealth of local knowledge on both sides of the river that I enjoy sharing with my clients. I am well known for outstanding customer service, strong attention to detail, and delivering positive experiences. I believe strongly that it is not only my fiduciary duty to provide exceptional service to my clients, but to also help educate them along the way.

    Real estate transactions, whether it be buying, selling, renting, or investing can often be challenging and complicated leaving most with not knowing where to even begin. However, my job is to assist you and take the pressure off, so you can make clear and concise decisions throughout the process and focus on what matters. Having worked in the banking industry for 5+ years, I am able to offer knowledge and insight on both the financial & real estate side of the transaction.

    As a Realtor for Coldwell Banker I have high quality system-based models and technology at my fingertips. These models and technology systems enable me to find the properties you are interested in as well as market your property to qualified buyers. I am an active member of the National Realtors Association, Massachusetts Realtors Association, and the Pioneer Valley Realtors Association.

    I look forward to working for you to meet all of your real estate needs and as your Realtor you will be my #1 priority!

    Val is passionate and energised - very enthusiastic about helping people find homes (and it SHOWS!). She is a Soldier for those of us who had no idea how to begin the approach to home-buying - boots on the ground of advocacy to make sure that her clients are well taken care of throughout the often long and trying process of purchasing a home. She is amazing - and I would definitely recommend her to family and friends!

    Val is without a doubt a mecca for those who are deciding to venture out into the home-buying world for the first or the fiftieth time. She knows her craft, inside and out and, most importantly, brings the average consumer into the fold wanting to become a seasoned veteran in home ownership. Val is personable - essentially engaging and very professional in her approach: this has instilled in me confidence in recommending her and Coldwell Bankers Community Realtors' services in providing potential home owners complete satisfaction as they venture out in making big decisions regarding owning a home.

    Val went way way above and beyond what was expected to get the house ready for market. Because of her knowledge and effort, the property sold quickly and for a very fair price. She was totally accessible throughout the process, and initiated contact to keep us informed about her progress. Our family is fortunate to have been referred to Val...she is the best! And that isn'™t hyperbole.

    Valena was everything we could have hoped for and more! She was on time to all of our showings and was able to submit offers within minutes for us. She always made sure we understood everything that was happening and walked us through every step of the home buying process. As first time home buyers this was invaluable! Valena is smart and she really knows the real estate business. She will do everything in her power to make her clients happy and will go above and beyond what is expected of her. If we sell our house in the future we will be sure to contact Valena for another wonderful experience. Thank you!

    Not sure who coined the phrase the Complete Package, bet they knew Val! She takes the time to get to know her clients and it pays off for them. We felt she had an uncanny ability to anticipate our needs. Val was always prepared for whatever we threw at her and responded as if she'd only been waiting on the query. Going into the process we weren't really clear on what we wanted. Through all the 'maybes' and 'might wants', she was extremely accommodating and gracious. Val also would not back down or take no for an answer. When it came time to make a deal she came prepared to get our offer accepted. After that she was an infinite well of resources to get us through each next phase of the buying, closing, and moving process. In the end her patience, knowledge, perseverance, and professionalism got us settled into our forever home and we will be forever grateful!

    I can not express how grateful I am for Val! She was absolutely amazing, from first showing me the house, showing my sons the house and negotiating the purchase. Val did it all! Once I told Val my offer, she negotiated the price for me. Not only did she secure the property for me, she was able to get me a better price! Val is awesome, holding my hand through each step of the purchase. I feel like I have a new family member as well as the best realtor. Thank you Val!

    A big "Thank You" to realtor Valena Rutkowski of Upton-Massmont Realtors Coldwell Banker for finding our forever Home. We spent countless exhausting hours trying to find what we wanted on our own to no avail. After all we were recommended to Valena. Her Listening Skills & Professionalism landed us with exactly what we were looking for.. A great realtor is a blessing! We recommend Valena Rutkowski without hesitation.

    Should You Skip Your Home Inspection?

    The pandemic has brought on some tough challenges in the housing market, especially for buyers. Bidding wars, multiple offers, and low inventory have increased competition when buyers are putting in an offer on a home. Some buyers are even resorting to waiving their home inspection rights to try to get a leg up on the competition. As REALTORS, we advise against that, because the home inspection is such an important part of the home buying process.  Waiving your home inspection comes wi...
