Clients are saying:

"My fiancé and I are so thankful to have Debbie as an agent. We were looking at tricky properties, foreclosures and fixer uppers, on top of being first-time home buyers. Plus, my fiancé’s first language isn’t English! We were so lucky to have Debbie’s expertise to guide us through it all. We had a lot of specific things we wanted in a tiny radius, and Debbie got us everything we wanted in our house and more. We are so excited to have our first home and couldn’t have gotten at the price we did without Debbie! We look forward to working with her again in the future."

"Debbie goes above and beyond as a real estate agent, and we would have never gotten our house at the price we closed at without her.

We’re first time home buyers and fell in love with the first two places we looked at. Debbie wasn’t trying to make a fast sale-she sat down with us for hours and had the hard conversations about flaws in the properties that we would never even think about being expensive-sewer issues, brick issues, etc. Debbie wanted to make sure our house was a good investment for us and that we thought about the time and cost of repairs as part of our budget. We were disappointed but so grateful that we had an expert on our side to make the right decision.

The third time was the charm for us when Debbie found us a foreclosure! It checked all our boxes and was in our ideal location. The listing price was cheaper than anything comparable we’d seen, and Debbie still managed to get the price down lower. We were stunned and thrilled that we were able to find a house that was both a good investment and a place that felt like home.

Debbie made great recommendations for our lawyer and a mortgage broker that were able to help us close fast, and negotiated so well for additional repairs. She even helped us find the repairmen and painters for after our house sold, making everything about the process easy.

I can’t express how happy I am to have gone with Debbie- you should definitely choose her too!"
