When my wife and I began this Real Estate journey, we were looking to rent a condo at The Lake of The Ozarks for our son who had just begun a 6 month internship at Porto Cima Golf Club. I couldn't find anything for nearly 6 weeks until a very good friend of mine, who is an experienced broker that owns a very large Real Estate company in Illinois, recommended Valerie. She had used Valerie herself to find her a home at The Lake the previous year. Well, needless to say, when one of your good friends recommends someone in their own profession, that speaks volumes to their ability, experience and character. I needed to find a home for my son to live in within 2 weeks. We had to find something and the deal had to be closed within that time period. Find something, negotiate, appraised, loan approval and title work had to be done in 2 weeks. We were in on the 12th day. Valerie and her staff were so helpful and committed to finding us something that we truly liked, my wife and I were amazed that there were still people out there that really cared about their profession and helping people in a very difficult situation. Everyone needs to remember that this was not a 2 million dollar mansion, it was a 2BDR, 2BA condominium on The Lake. Now are you listening? They treated us like we were buying a mansion. To her, it didn't matter. She went after it the same way. I don't write reviews, but I couldn't wait to write this one, and tell others about her and her incredible staff. Thank You to Valerie Littrell and Real Estate at the Lake.
My husband And I were down looking at this property, we called for a showing and as soon as we met Valerie, she felt like a friend! She was very protective of us during negotiations and when we thought we hit a snag, she was already lining up another solution! She was always available, even after hours! She made us feel like we were getting a great buy and felt good about our decision! At closing, she gave us an awesome picture to hang on the wall! She knows her clients and she just got me, it was perfect! THANK YOU for EVERYTHING!!
|"If you have a property at the Lake of the Ozarks that you need to sell, Valerie is the realtor for you! I have sold a lot of properties and have never had a realtor work so hard to sell something. Valerie is extremely professional and is second to none in her profession!"

"Valerie is a very caring individual. She never makes you wait and is always available for questions. We purchased a lot from her and she sold our Tan Tara home. Her calls are answered almost immediately. I can't express how attentive her assistant is when Valerie is out of the office. I would recommend her highly and use her again if need be. She is an excellent listener and puts her customers first. She's the best!"
"Such a great experience! Everything was so simple and efficient. Very happy with Valerie's help and our new lake getaway!!"
"Valerie was so patient with us in our home search. We started thinking we wanted one type of home and then after seeing some, we completely changed course. Valerie had no problem helping us through that and showing us a wide variety of properties that were in many locations. As out-of-towners, she was always accommodating to our schedule when we were in the area. She spent many hours driving us from home to home. She is also extremely knowledgeable about the lake and the many areas surrounding it and gave us a lot of good advice that were beyond just housing. I would highly recommend you talk to Valerie if you are in the market for a home on the lake."
"My husband and I were searching for our first home and were recommended to Valerie. The whole experience was so great! As first time home buyers we were very overwhelmed with everything, but Valerie and her assistant Lauren were incredibly helpful and made the process so easy. I highly recommend using them to find your perfect home."
Valerie was very helpful during the negotiation and closing process on our new home at the Lake. I had spoken with several agents throughout our home search and am very pleased with my decision to use Valerie.
Valerie did a wonderful job helping us sell our lake house, which had been on the market for quite awhile. She is very knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and always had answers for our questions. Valerie is a true professional, and we highly recommend using her as your agent!
Valerie is awesome! She goes above and beyond all other experiences we've had with other realtors. She is not here just to sell you a home. She partners with her clients to help them find the perfect fit for their family. I highly recommend Valerie!
"We started to work with Valerie because she had a great web site to browse thru. After talking with her and setting up a day to look at numerous properties, in less than ideal weather, we found our retirement home the same day. Valerie was great help in the negotiating process and helping us out of state people with all the details needed to close and get moved to the lake! What we thought would be a long and drawn out process turned out to be quick and painless. We would recommend Valerie to anyone looking for expert help in relocating to the lake.
"I highly recommend Valerie. She is very personable and professional. She spent time showing us real estate and was very knowledgeable about the different condos in the area. She was always there to answer our questions even after the closing on our condo unit. She is excellent at what she does!"
"Real Estate at the Lake with Valerie Littrell. Our relationship with this great group of individuals started many years ago when our first home buying attempt fell through. When we was ready to give it a second go Valerie and her team was ready to get on board with us once again. It wasn’t until after we bought our wonderful home and got to know the area did we realize just how much drive time they put in with us to view potential homes. We would send them 20 or so homes to look at each Saturday for a couple of weekends in a row. The team would view each home with us prior to our visit and educate us on the pros and cons of that home and its location. After we eliminated some choices then the real work began. The team drove us from one end of the lake to the other looking for our wonderful home. We live 5 hours away and the long distance communication was amazing with no issues at all. They even made closing easy so we would not have to be there. We drove to our new home walked in. To this day I can’t believe the time and effort Valerie and her team took to help us to find our perfect home. This is the only team we will ever use in the future. Even after buying our home we still are in communication. This is a business that is there even after the sale/purchase. "
"Valerie Littrell is a true professional who developed Real Estate at the Lake as a successful and well respected business. Her experience and knowledge of Lake property was instrumental in my residential purchase. Buying and selling houses at Lake of the Ozarks happens everyday. Valerie is dedicated to helping you find a home and that is what make Real Estate at the Lake very special. Thanks, Valerie! "
"Down-to-earth, friendly, easy-going, patient, knowledgeable and helpful. We found our dream house and that's all she wrote. We bought it! Valerie is simply the best person to have with you on your search. A+ all the way."
"Valerie did an outstanding job of showing us the area and was very forthcoming in pointing out the pros & cons of each of the many condo communities & areas that we looked at. Her knowledge and advice were instrumental in our being able to make a very financially wise and informed decision on which condo unit & community we eventually purchased. Thnx Valerie for a job very well done!!"
From the first point of contact Valerie went above and beyond to help us secure our first Lake property. She listened to our wants and needs, worked around what we didn't like and came up with a list of properties for us to look at. We are waking up this morning in our new Condo, thankful for Valerie and all she did to make sure she got us here. I would recommend this hard working woman to anyone thinking of buying any kind of property at the lake. She knows every road, every complex and every eatery....She will get you what you want!
Simply the best. We bought our lake house with Valerie 3 years prior. When the market was right we sold it with Valerie. She gave us superb advise to get the most out of our home. We had great exposure and several viewings in the first 48 hours including a full price offer. Valerie kept us fully informed of everything right up to the closing date and completion. No question of who we will have as our agent for either buying or selling at the lake!
- My wife and I were extremely happy with the efforts of Valerie to market and sell our property at the lake! Valerie is a professional, and understands the market. We highly recommend Valerie to anyone wishing to buy or sell property at Lake of the Ozarks!
Valerie and the entire staff at Real Estate at the Lake made the confusing and stressful process of purchasing a home easy and worry free. Their knowledge of the Lake Ozark area and the patience they expressed, starting with finding a home which met all of my needs all the way to the final closing was so much appreciated. I think what impressed me the most was Valerie and her staffs' communication skills.
Thanks Valerie it was a pleasure working with you
""Valerie sold us our Lake of the Ozarks home. She was very professional and took the time to make sure we understood the buying and selling process so we were informed every step of the way. We have since referred Valerie to friends and she has helped them find a home in the same professional manner. We would recommend Valerie for your lake of the Oarks real estate needs.""
Valarie always treated us like we were her only clients, knowing well that she had others and also had a life on the weekends, she was always available to us. Valerie was great about being the go between as there were issues that needed someone there and we were three hours away, she took care of these items for us.
We started looking for homes early summer and my husband & I knew exactly what we wanted in a lake house after talking to Lora she showed us several houses and was very patient with us. She listened to our needs and by the end of the summer, she found us the house that was perfect for our family. She never gave up and worked just as hard the entire time. Now that we are moved in we still call Lora & Valerie anytime we are looking for a plumber,painter etc. Throughout our search for homes we have also become friends with the both of them. We could not be happier with our house and are so grateful for everything they have done for us.
We have known Valerie for many years and when it came time to sell our daughter's condo during a down economy, we knew there would be one person we could rely on to MOVE IT! Valerie ALWAYS answered her phone, no matter the time or day my husband had a question, helped us price the condo to sell and it was sold in 10 days!
My dream of purchasing a lake house, at the Lake of the Ozarks, was realized recently thanks to the assistance of my realtor Lora Elliott. This was a significant personal commitment with which I had an initial level of discomfort as it is over 300 miles away from my home and my ability to conduct market research and spend time looking at homes was limited. I initially contacted Valerie Littrell due to interest in a listing that I found on the internet. As a successful business person, Valerie, like many of us, was engaged in numerous activities which wouldn’t allow her to focus on my request so she assigned Lora to the task.
I immediately felt at ease as Lora’s communications and depth of information were more than what I needed to get started. It took a couple of visits to the lake but Lora realized my goal of being ready to enjoy the lake by May. I felt like I was her only customer as she allowed me the opportunity to see nearly 30 homes narrow my search down to what is now our lake home. Thanks Valerie and Lora for truly what was a remarkable job. I will recommend you all day long to my friends, families and coworkers.
We recently had the privilege to be involved with Valerie Littrell for real estate services in the process of buying our lake home in Four Seasons. She went far and beyond what one would expect. Her professionalism and knowledge base were paramount. Valerie made the sometimes difficult and stressful process easy. Valerie’s excellent reputation within the real estate community and among the lake community at large enabled us to make our transition to the Lake of the Ozarks a most pleasant and flawless experience. We would whole heartedly recommend Valerie Littrell to anyone seeking real estate services at the lake.
When I decided to look for a second home at Lake of the Ozarks, I feel I was fortunate to have chosen Valerie Littrell and her Sales Associate Lora Elliott.
I immediately felt comfortable with the way they went about helping me. I could tell they genuinely wanted to find the right home for me, not just sell something. Having never owned a lake home, I relied on their knowledge of the lake to guide me toward the property that suited me and my family.
We looked at over 25 homes in various areas of the Lake and I was able to find the perfect lakefront home for us! From the looking to understanding the contract, to the home inspection and even the financing Valerie & Lora were thoughtful, consistent and professional.
They recommended a local lender early on in the looking process and we were able to close even sooner than originally anticipated. Valerie and Lora never pushed me to make a fast buying decision and made sure I got to see everything in the area that fit my parameters.
You won’t find real estate professionals who truly want to help you more than these two. I highly recommend both Valerie & Lora when you decide you want to find your piece of this beautiful place. The views are spectacular!
Valerie has a tremendous "grasp" of the real estate market and possesses that intuitive feeling as to what a house is really worth and how well it will sell. Valerie has that balance of knowledge, drive and enthusiasm that will get the job done for you.
We had the privilege of working with Valerie to sell our home, the same home she helped us to purchase at the Lake of the Ozarks. We highly recommend Valerie she clearly takes pride in doing a good job.
We started our search at the lake just by getting in the car and driving down, we’re so glad one of the first calls we made was to Valerie Littrell. At first she was providing the exact listings we told her we were looking for, we then expanded the area and by her suggestions we had to push our budget. (Not too much, but realistic!) She guided us through the entire process and answered every question we had thrown at her. When you have 5 people making a decision to purchase a property, a) too many people to please and b) refer to statement A. We spent weeks looking at properties and finally found a few to make an offer.
At that point Valerie took over, it was a long road but she was professional, prompt and we were impressed with her ability to get the deal done. Her overall knowledge of the area, her understanding of what we valued and wanted in a lake property helped us acquire the right place for our families. We couldn’t have been more pleased.
I am writing this letter to tell you how pleased we are with the services provided to us in our recent search for a home in Osage Beach. My husband had just received a transfer with his company and we had only a short time to find and buy a home and move from Pueblo, CO to Missouri. We were a bit overwhelmed. My husband Steve began his search through Trulia and he took a chance and called the Realtor on a particular listing. It just happened to be Valerie Littrell, the best first call he ever made. She turned out to be just what we needed in a Realtor!
We made an appointment to meet on June 24, beforehand sending Valerie a list of homes and she had some suggestions of her own too. We looked hard; for 2 full days. Valerie showed us a lot of homes and also showed us all around the Lake area. She was full of information about all the different communities and life at the Lake.
After looking at many homes, we were just not finding “the” right house for us. I was getting discouraged. But Valerie did not give up. She worked tirelessly, taking us where ever we wanted to look; finally, we found just the right one! I think Valerie was just as thrilled as we were! After making an offer, she followed up, using her knowledge and experience to get us just the right deal on our new house.
Well, needless to say, the whole experience went off without a hitch and we had the keys to our new property in hand on August 2. I think Steve’s company was pretty surprised that it took just a little over a month for us to be back in Missouri and Steve began serving his new territory in record time. We absolutely love living here. That could not have happened without the hard work of our Realtor, Valerie Littrell.
I think we not only found a new home, but also a new friend in Valerie. She was not only very professional in helping us with our purchase, she is also an inspiration to be around. She helped make a very stressful time, fun! We really appreciate all she did for us and wholeheartedly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy a home in the Lake of the Ozark area.
Steve and Debbie Shaffer
We consider ourselves the most fortunate couple living at the lake in our new condo. The reason is simple we found and met Valerie Littrell, who through her professionalism and personal touch guided us to our fantastic new home. Valerie exhibited understanding and patience with us on a number of fronts from being newcommers to lake life as well as new to living in a condo full time. She spent the time to explain on several occasions and help us understand the idiosyncrasies of our new environment. She was always receptive to our inquiries or suggested change in directions. Often after listening to Valerie 's feedback and suggestions we would refocus our attention to the details that really mattered. Finally it was as a result of Valerie's suggestion and direction and working with the title company that we were able to close on the sale of our house and the purchase of our new condo on the very same day. We have and will continue to recommend Valerie to anyone interested in living the lake life!

""Valerie is someone you can trust is working for you and has your best interest at heart!" We have had Valerie sell our Business, one of our homes and a condo. She goes above and beyond. I have recommended her to others and they are always grateful that I did! When I think real-estate, I think of Valerie!""
Valerie helped me find a house and spent a ton of time looking at houses even prior to me being ready to buy. She is honest and wins you over with knowledge vs pushing for a sale. She has contacts / reliable resources for during and after the sale. Valerie made a lot of phone calls for me allowing me time to focus on moving. There is a lot more complications to buying a house at the lake than in a city. She uses her knowledge and confidence to work for your best interests to stay on top of every situation. Anyone would make a mistake not have Valerie buy or sell your home. Valerie makes things happen! Now that the sale is finished (and I am still on cloud nine over getting the prefect house) I wish I was still riding around with the lakes best agent in all the land!
""Valerie is one of the most professional real estate Brokers I have had the pleasure to work with. Her knowledge of the Lake of the Ozarks is expansive. Coupled with her enriched business experience at the Lake, I can't think of another real estate professional that I would recommend higher. Her leadership style and client relationship expertise is of the highest standing. Valerie makes friends of her clients and co-workers, backing up casual experiences with educated years of hard work. You won't find a more dedicated, professional Realtor at Lake of the Ozarks!""
You were always kind and willing to answer our questions and /or show us properties. You were very personable and we feel we've made a new friend. Thanks again for everything!

Great and First Class!!
My husband & I had the privilege of working with Valerie & Lora to find our perfect lake home. We looked at a lot of properties & Valerie was most concerned that she find us the home that best fit both of our dreams of lake living. It was a pleasure to work with honest, straight forward people. We look forward to making many family memories at our beautiful lake home.
There was no doubt that Valerie’s fiduciary obligation was to us. She negotiated a most favorable deal for us long term. We are extremely pleased with our condominium at Palisades and would recommend Valerie Littrell to anyone seeking a property at Lake of the Ozarks.
