"Primary point of contact: Monica Alpert We worked with Monica Alpert of the Debbie Rybka-Howard team. As first time home-buyers we started out in a world of confusion. As soon as Monica came along, all of that went away. She was not only upfront about how things work but also provided amazing insight to both the market and housing needs. Monica was available to us at any point in the day and she made sure to take the time out to explain every little detail. Without Monica and her team, we would have been lost and for sure lead down the wrong path. We cannot give a better recommendation than to work with Monica and the rest of the team."

"Debbie Rybka-Howard came highly recommend from a good friend who was herself a successful realtor but had moved out of state. Debbie gave us expert advice on how to prepare our house to get the most of out of our old home. She was spot-on with pricing, which was based on all her and her team's  market and intimate knowledge of the area. The open houses were well-publicized and attended. Our house was under contract after the first weekend on the market! Throughout our experience, Debbie and her team was supportive, patient, and personable. For these reasons, in addition to generating multiple generous offers, we can strongly recommend her services."
