Valentina is motivated, energetic and trustworthy and is dedicated to making your move a great one. Her ability to think on her feet and keen negotiation skills will ensure you get the best outcome for your sale. With a strong work ethic she always strives to achieve beyond her customers expectations.

Being born in Bulgaria, but now living in New Zealand with her Chinese husband means she has a good understanding of change and the ability to help people with moving home -- “a big change in their lives”. Valentina has worked as a project manager for 6 years in Europe. Those experiences give her good communication skills, capability to build rapport with people from different cultures and to accept diversity and uniqueness in everyone.

Living in Naenae for the last 3 years, Valentina is a wonderful advocate for Naenae and Hutt Valley having transformed to a lovely place for young families and kids. Her son is growing up in Naenae and attending the local playcentre, kindergarten, as well as many of local activities in Lower Hutt. Before joining Leaders as a salesperson, she worked as an information officer at Naenae playcentre. From those personal experiences, Valentina has a strong bonding to the local community and is perfectly equipped to advise families on all Naenae has to offer, and relate this to their real estate needs.
