"I met Debbie through a close family friend when we found out we were moving to Chicago. We hired Debbie immediately, as we found her knowledgable, trustworthy, honest and extremely responsive. We had such a wonderful experience we referred my Mom to Debbie when she bought her home. Ten years later my Mom passed and we needed to sell the home. Again, Debbie was our go-to gal. She sold the home in 4 days!"

"We could not have had a better home buying experience! Debbie was the best- we were first time home buyers and she was knowledgeable, honest, and hardworking. We can’t thank her enough for making the process easy and helping us find our dream home!"

"“I have worked with three other brokers in past deals and have been either indifferent or dissatisfied with them. Debbie changed all that. She was very knowledgeable and accessible; but, what made her stand out was that she always had my best interest in mind and fought for us at the negotiating table.""

"Debbie Croft is an outstanding agent. Her knowledge, patience, demeanor, professionalism, appreciation of the importance of listening to what her client wants, work ethic, and unwavering commitment to always acting in the client's interest are second to none. She is the consummate professional! Any prospective buyer would be fortunate to have her as his or her agent."

"Debbie is a true professional, who acts in her client's best interests.

Debbie helped me find my home in the South Loop in 2015. Coming from an area where places stayed on the market for months, and usually sold well below asking, I was totally unprepared for the Chicago market. One of the first things Debbie did was set me straight. She really worked with me to help me understand the state of the market, and that things would move quickly, but she never made me feel rushed, or as if I needed to make a decision before I was totally comfortable with it.

I was very picky, in terms of what I wanted in a new home. Rather than trying to make me comfortable with places that didn't meet every one of my expectations, Debbie diligently noted everything I required, and was completely honest when she felt a property didn't meet those expectations. She showed me around 15 properties, and treated me as if every one was the first. I never felt any pressure to make a decision.

I was most impressed by Debbie's availability. I know she had several clients, but I always felt like she was working for me, and only me. She responded promptly, made herself available quickly, and scheduled appointments around my schedule.

I am as picky about the people who work for me as I was with my condo. Debbie exceeded my expectations, and has my highest recommendation."

I have the good fortune to work with Debbie many times. She is a very highly skilled, knowledgeable person very devoted in understanding individual needs.
I highly recommend her....You will not be disappointed"

"Debbie is a pleasure to work with. She's knowledgeable about the north shore area and knows the market extremely well. She works hard for her clients and will do whats needed to get the job done. She returns phone calls promptly and makes you feel like her only client. She's the only realtor i would ever use for any real estate transaction!"

"Debbie Croft is the ultimate real estate professional, available when you need her to successfully market and sell your home. In a tough market, she was able to sell our home when three other homes on our street sat unsold."

"We were so fortunate to have found Debbie Croft. As our Realtor, she helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. She was patient, knowledgeable, and great at the negotiating table.

In short, she was always on our side working to make this process as simple and successful as possible. We would recommend her to anyone!"

"When my husband and I decided to sell our place in the city my first thought for who to contact was Debbie Croft. Debbie's daughter and I have been friends for nearly 20 years and I knew with Debbie as our broker we would be in good hands, For almost two years we were on the hunt for a new home. Debbie was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and patience as we first navigated trying to stay in the city and finally decided on the suburbs. My husband and I were in love with the idea of an older home and with Debbie's help - our dream came true. Together we found a beautiful 1921 home in Glencoe that met every single one of our checklist items (it's true!). We love our new home and we love love love working with Debbie. We knew how wonderful Debbie is before we started the home buying/selling process, but the time, effort, care, knowledge, and personal service she provided was above and beyond what we could have expected."

"Debbie Croft is great to work with. Debbie got our house on the market quickly and had showings immediately. Debbie understood our needs and was able to provide good candidates. Debbie made the whole process very easy, we appreciate her professionalism and attention to detail. If you are looking for an increadible broker Debbie is the one for you, we highly recommend her. Wes and Monika"

"always available for fone or personal conversation...returns calls promtly with any and all information...always pleasant demenier...conscientious...if I sold another another house I would use her again, and would recomend her to anybody that would ask for one...THE BEST"

"We couldn't sell our house for a year with another broker, as soon as our listing agreement was done I looked for a new broker. I found Debbie who sold one of the homes in my subdivision just within one week on the market. I looked up Debbie and I knew then she will do the job. The minute she walked into my house I knew she was the right person for the job. Debbie told me what needed to be done in order to sell the house for the price we wanted. We did all of her recommended changes which included painting and some smaller changes and within one week we got two offers, the offers were much lower than what we wanted for the house, Debbie negotiated the price we wanted to sell the house for and she sold our house within a week on the market!!!!! Debbie and her team Wass exceeded our expectations through the process. Debbie not only is an excellent broker but also a great person who is pleasant to work with. I know that Debbie will be selling my current house in the future. Thank you Debbie for everything!!!"

"Debbie is spectacular. We had a very difficult process to go through and she was there to lend a hand, an ear and give great guidance and advice. Then when it came down to the final days before closing on our new house, she was right there making sure everything got done on time (without a lot of notice). I would recommend Debbie to anyone looking to buy a house in the area. We are so happy with our new house and it's perfect location.I don't know what we would have done without Debbie and her team!"

"Debbie was fantastic to work with. She went above and beyond to get me into an apartment that I really love and for a great price. Looking forward to working with her again on my next home!"

"she was great......professional, caring and always accommodating. have passed her name along to anyone I know that is moving. the company was great to work with and would not hesitate to use @properties again"

"Deb did a wonderful job for us on both the sell and buy side. On the sell side, we didn't even go on the market before we received an offer for asking price. On the buy side, we saved a ton of money going in with an aggressive, but justified offer. Our new house checked more boxes than we could have ever expected. We wouldn't hesitate to engage Deb again for future real estate needs. Thanks, Deb!"

"Deb was absolutely fantastic! Very knowledgeable about the city and the best places to live. She was a wonderful advocate for me when meeting with leasing agents and asked all the questions I that I didn't even think to ask. I couldn't have had a better exciting than mine with Deb!"

"We worked with Deb to sell our house in the city and purchase our new beautiful home and are so happy with the entire process. We highly recommend Deb and her team. Deb has a wealth of experience and knowledge that was very helpful in the process. She has a lot of patience and truly understand the needs and desires of her clients. Deb was always responsive and very organized. It was really important to her that she gets to know her clients and what they want in a home. Deb provided us with great advice and guidance and explained in great details what to expect as sellers and buyers. Deb is absolutely outstanding and we cannot recommend her enough!"

"Debbie is an absolutely wonderful realtor! She truly listens to her clients and provides valuable wisdom. Debbie takes all of the stress that comes along with finding a home away with her insight and experience! Debbie is truly dedicated to finding the perfect home that will meet your individual needs."

"Debbie was terrific to work with in helping my wife and I find the perfect apartment. Her experience, knowledge of the market and excellent client-service far surpassed any broker I've ever worked with in the past. I would highly recommend Debbie Croft to anyone looking to buy or rent a home."

"Without Debbie Croft we would never have achieved the purchase of the perfect condo (for us, at least). She followed up monthly on a lead we gave her concerning a property being held by a bank, which at the time was not on the market. As soon as it was ready to be shown, she had us in to view it & helped us secure the property."

"Our experience with Debbie Croft was really great! Debbie was very responsive to all of our questions and needs. She sold our house and helped us search and buy a new home. She remained patient and informative during the whole process. Additionally, her market knowledge and experience she shared with us gave us the confidence at the negotiating table. I highly recommend Debbie to anyone who wants to have a great person looking out for them during this challenging process."

"I have worked with three other brokers in past deals and have been either indifferent or dissatisfied with them. Debbie changed all that. She was very knowledgeable and accessible; but, what made her stand out was that she always had my best interest in mind and fought for us at the negotiating table."

"Very knowledgeable and very very helpfull in finding a new location to live. I would use her in a heart beat."

"Debbie did a great job finding condos that were exactly what I was looking for. She also made sure I was always in the right price range. When I found my place she kept asking my questions to make sure I was %200 ready to make an offer. I would have not found my dream home without her help!!!"

"Very professional plus knowledgable and friendly. Did a wonderful job! Keep up the good work'"

"My husband and I were not familiar with or heard of @properties until we spoke with Debbie Croft. We had the house up "by owner" and decided to give Debbie the listing.Debbie immediately started with such enthusiasm looking into comps for us, had a professional photographer out, and had us on the MLS immediately. She gave the little push and reassurance we needed to get the house listed. And how happy we are that she did.Debbie Croft was just outstanding to work with on a professional level. Her knowledge, communication, marketing, and follow-up were just incredible. Looking forward to working together again! Fondly, Linda and Sherwin"
