Navy Veteran | REALTOR®
Meet Val Steenblik
Valentino (a.k.a. Val) is a man of many skills; however, his people skills have fueled his career in real estate. He is passionate about connecting hard-working individuals and families with their forever home and works tirelessly to make it happen - no matter the odds. Without a doubt, Val cares for his clients, which he demonstrates by meticulously curating rewarding real estate experiences. In his eyes, real estate isn’t a transaction; it’s an investment in a dream and a journey to personal fulfillment.
A New Mexico native, Val enlisted in the Navy after high school and embarked on an exciting career in aviation medicine for almost a decade. Stationed in various locations throughout Asia, Val had the unique privilege of experiencing other cultures and helping others while in service to his country - and he wholeheartedly credits this experience with awakening his passion for helping others succeed.
After the military, Val relocated to Austin in 2019. His journey to post-service professional rediscovery began in multifamily property management in the exciting hub of downtown Austin - where his people skills were tested and rewarded repeatedly, including recognition as a top-seller in his industry.
During his property management and sales tenure, Val discovered his passion for real estate. It wasn’t long before he decided to pursue residential real estate full-time, and he began the licensing process - firmly establishing his trajectory toward a personally and professionally rewarding career helping others find their perfect home or next investment.
Grounded in Service
As a Texas-licensed realtor, Val has found his calling. Working in real estate has allowed him to combine everything he has learned in life - from the meticulous training instilled as a leading petty officer in the military to the dynamic people skills nurtured in the fast-paced and demanding world of luxury property management.
However, the real opportunity to shine presented itself with the Jorgenson Group - where Val found a home among the collaborative, friendly, and supportive group of real estate professionals that make up one of Austin’s fastest-growing, top-rated real estate firms. Working for a company firmly entrenched in providing top-notch customer service while seamlessly transacting real estate is right where he belongs.
When Val isn’t busy serving others in their real estate pursuits around the greater Austin area, you can find him exploring the playground of culinary and scenic delights the city has to offer with his partner and two rescue dogs, Sebastian and Naga.
