What do Clients Say?

Dear Deb,Not sure where to begin…but first and foremost thank you for your support, professionalism and guidance as you walked me through the process of being an executor of an estate and selling a friend’s family home.From the beginning you listened to my concerns, you took time to talk things over and you remained a calming force when I was feeling overwhelmed. I never could have imagined what the responsibility of being an executor of an estate would look like when family members were at odds and I was responsible for making the final decision.I can look back now and say that your knowledge in dealing with these types of situations, your patience and your unwavering commitment to help everyone involved was invaluable. I don’t know what I would have done without you! Even your interaction with the other real estate agent was amazing. I can see your passion for working with seniors and families of seniors. It has been many years since I have bought or sold a home. But I have bought and sold many in my lifetime. Until now, I had an entirely different perspective and experiences when interacting with real estate agents. You have forever raised the bar.If I can be a reference for you, please don’t hesitate to let me know. It would be a pleasure to share my experience and perhaps help someone in a similar situation in need.Thanks again Deb, for all your help!PS. Feel free to have anyone call me!

“Deb helped our family by executing both a sale of our old home and a purchase of our new home concurrently. Both transactions became complex and challenging. Deb rose to the occasion with consistent and responsive communication, support and professionalism. Navigating emotions, expectations, negotiations and all that goes into these transactions can become all consuming. Deb offered support on all fronts and was a great team player. I would recommend Deb for either a sale or purchase of a home. Thanks again Deb for all your efforts!”

She was extremely sensitive and responsive to my individual needs while guiding and providing expertise at all the right times. I found her to be extremely transparent and trustworthy. A true professional in all aspects of pricing, marketing and negotiating while utterly reliable with all administrative and practical aspects of our sale and move. Deb truly models the professional, ethical and expert role of the very best of realtors.”

“Buying and selling a house is one of life's most stressful events, adding incredible strain on relationships with friends and family. Having a good realtor work through the challenges is critical to the process. A consummate professional with a keen eye for detail and a strong moral compass, Deb was a vigorous advocate for us on both ends of the transaction and managed to keep us sane in the process. Deb seamlessly guided us through the process of selling our old house, buying our new one, renting and remodeling, all without a hitch, all in record time. She inspires the utmost confidence. We trust her with our animals and our kids! Deb is truly the best out there. I wish we had found her sooner!”

~Adam Mehr

Every step of the way, the lines of communication was always open and Deb made sure we obtained feedback after each showing so that would could gauge interest in our home. Given her experience and specific knowledge of our area, she provided us invaluable information so that we could make informed decisions. For us – There’s no doubt about it … Deb was the right choice!
