Valerie Vanhook Hicks

Valerie was born in Raleigh, North Carolina but relocated with her family to Kure Beach in 2000. Attending school in the Wilmington area from 3rd grade thru college has earned Valerie the title of an area local. Growing up here in Wilmington she has gained an enormous amount of knowledge of the coastal area including, neighborhoods, schools, businesses, and local events making her the perfect person for all of your real estate needs. Valerie is very grateful to be a part of the Beatty Pittman team working with one of the leading agents in the area, and with all of the successful and experienced team members. In her spare time Valerie enjoys going to the beach, being on the water, spending time with friends and family and her yellow lab, Ella.


Happy Clients

Testimonial Icon

Valerie was extremely helpful for us while buying our first home. She went over everything step by step and was available for any questions we had. Valerie worked around the clock to help us with an unforeseen issue with the seller. Her hard work and professionalism made our first-time buying process a great experience!!

Without Valerie, we wouldn’t have our home. We moved to Wilmington in spring of 2020 – and lived in Raleigh, so it was tough not only finding a home we loved but being able to navigate through the home buying journey (as first-time home buyers, we were overwhelmed). Valerie helped EVERY SINGLE STEP – answered questions, assisted on contractor visits, home inspections, dealing with the seller’s agent – ALL OF IT. She was super-fast to respond and went out of her way to go the extra mile during the entire home-buying process. She knows her stuff! I have no doubt that if Val wasn’t on my side, we wouldn’t have our home. HIRE HER. She will be one of the top agents in this region one day – if not THE top realtor in the area.
