Another thing that you can do is, if you have an agent that you already know and trust they can look for an agent in the west valley that specializes in what you are looking for. Sometimes it is good to have an agent you know and trust work for you, they will know what type of questions to ask, and they should ensure that you are in good hands with the agent they recommend.
Good luck, hope you find what you are looking for.

With that out of the way, while you're deciding which way to go I've included a link to a West Valley home search from my website. It's where I live and work, so please don't hesitate to ask me any questions you may have.
My suggestion is to interview a few local Realtors in the West Valley area, and determine which one will work best with you in terms of experience, knowledge, and communication style.
