"Debbie is simply the best of the best. She’s an old fashioned good mannered, highly principled and deeply kind person. If you’re looking for someone who is sincere, well educated in current real estate rules and practices, who takes the time to understand your situation (downsizing, pregnant and need more bedrooms, newly divorced;) and who has a network of contractors, inspectors, lawyers, bankers, painters, plumbers that trust and listen to her advice; then call her first. With her I’ve sold two homes and bought two homes. Truth be told, selling your home is difficult and finding a home is difficult. But it is at certain heightened stressed touch points (eg. 1 week before your open house, weekend of incoming bids, lawyer contract details, time between inspections and final walk through) where Debbie’s superb skill set really shines bright. At these times, you know that your home, and your upcoming entire life style change, are in the hands of a high end professional."

"It is virtually impossible to touch on each way Debbie and her team helped my 94 yr old Mom sell her home. We were faced with numerous health and personal issues that prevented me from making small suggested changes to improve the salability of Mom's home. Debbie guided me gently through the entire process from sprucing to staging and ultimate cleanout. I never felt stressed. I never could have worked through the process "

"My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Debbie. Debbie has been responsive and excellent since the first phone call and made our home selling process easy and smooth (even when we were in the process of relocating to another country!) We interviewed different realtors and none of them compared with her professionalism, enthusiasm, knowledge and candid spirit. She anticipated needs and met them all with a smile on her face and expert advice. Debbie was extremely helpful, open, transparent, and reliable through the whole process. She really cared about us (and our pups), and was always available to answer our questions and guide us thru the selling process. Debbie came with a plan and executed it perfectly from listing the house to closing in about 45 days! We received over 20 offers, all on/over asking price. Debbie has been an absolute pleasure to work with and highly recommend her and her team."
