"Debora sold our home in St. Charles and did a phenomenal job. Buying/Selling a home is very personal and the negotiations can be challenging. Debora was amazing; our first offer changed their mind, our second offer had unreasonable asks from the inspection, and the third buyer was a charm. She was masterful at keeping all options open and keeping interested parties up to date when things were going sideways so they knew the house was likely to be available again soon. Her advice and expertise captured an additional 5% on the sale price which was certainly worth the wait and extra stress."
"Debora & her team were amazing. Did a great job listing the home, taking pictures, & readily available. Did a great job getting my home ready for sale. Sold my home in record time. Thank you."
"Debora and her team were responsive, professional and provided a terrific experience in the sale of our home. We felt supported, never had to worry about a detail falling through the cracks and would definitely work with this team again for any and all our real estate needs!"
"Our recent experience with Debora McKay & Ruta Baran of the Mackay group confirmed what their record clearly shows - they know the local market, they know what the buyers are looking for, and they get the job done!
They were upfront on the challenges when we listed with them in May and provided valuable guidance on pricing and upgrades that made all the difference in the end. Since we have moved out of state, they recommended Mike Callahan of Showhomes of Fox Valley to manage the upgrades. Mike is a great professional and took care of all the details, finishing in time and within budget. We received an offer soon after and successfully Closed in November.
Debora & Ruta frequently checked up on the home and took care of inspections, arranged for repairs, cleanup, walk-throughs, etc. They were there for us whenever we needed and kept us informed at all times. Couldn't have done it without you, Debora & Ruta - THANK YOU!!!"
"The Mckay group was unbelievably helpful. This was my first time purchasing a home and from first finding the home to closing they were with me the entire time. They were able to refer me to all members of my team who were all amazing, informed and helpful. I will continue to use the Mckay group and would recommend them to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home."
"As our (10) month old twins were screaming on the floor of another house during our first day of looking, Debora calmly came over and picked one up. She easily calmed him down and everyone breathed a sigh of relief. It was our first day looking at houses in over (10) years and we were a bit stressed. Over the next (4) weeks while looking at (40) houses, Debora consistenly met every request we had with a smile and confidence that eventually we would find our dream home. When we found the home not only did Debora get us the price we wanted, but also put us in touch with the best mortgage company, lawyer, contractor and insurance agent in St. Charles. Simply put, if you want the best Real Estate agent in the St. Charles area, come to Debora McKay. If you don't want the best, then go somewhere else. We LOVE Debora!"
"We just sold our 2nd home with Debora. She really knows the local market and we appreciate her honesty as well as her knowledge.
Following Debora's staging and pricing advice, we sold our last home in 1 week with 2 offers in 2007 when the market was in the midst of it's downward slide.
Again, following her advice, we just sold our current home, in these awful market conditions in less than 2 months for fairly close to offer to a cash buyer. Yippee.
She is now helping us to find another home and I trust together we will find the right place for our current situation.
We love Debora and Don and their staff and recommend them to anyone buying or selling in the tri-cities area."
"Debora and Don run a truely wonderful business. They are great at helping you understand everything that happens during the process without pushing you one way or the other. They are very knowledgeable about the area and are great at helping you negotiate the proper price. I would use them again and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a home in the area."
"Deborah & Don McKay, Debbie Krueger their assistanat & Dorothy represent but a few of the McKay TEAM in Real Estate Sales in the Fox Valley. Their TEAM transitions smooothly and professionally...not to mention respectfully in accordance with the Seller- Myself, & Buyers. Part & parcel to their professionalism is their flawless execution of meeting specific deadlines...in my request of them. Our home was professionally represented and we had about 40 showings with about 4 offers within a reasonable period of time. Granted that we also reduced the sale price after a reasonable time.The last home showing resulted in acceptance , on my behalf, of the final offer. No question they did a great job for my family and our sale. I would recommend their TEAM and would use them again. I don't hand out statements like this unless the statement is honestly warranted. Good luck should you ask for the McKay TEAM.....they'll get er done !"
"Debora, and the McKay group are the best! Responsive, available, knowledgable. Leads u through the process with optimal results! We sold our home in under a week, at a reasonable price given our still sluggish market. Would, and have recommended Dobora McKay to anyone considering selling, or buying a home!"
"Debora McKay and her team were a pleasure to work with and I have and will continue to recommend her services. Her advice and suggestions were accurate and insightful."
"I like an agent who is highly professional and knowledgeable and who will aggressively market a property and work for her client. To me this describes Debora. She was extremely well prepared for the listing and pricing discussion which is why my mother and the family selected her. She aided our family in negotiations, selection of a real estate attorney, a carpet supplier for a room that needed to be redone and on a house cleaning company. My mother's house sold very fast so it's hard to comment on how the house was marketed but I am confident that she would have excelled at that. Debora is definitely someone that you should consider if you are marketing a house in the communities around Saint Charles, Illinois. I would recommend her to a friend."
"Debora is extremely knowledgeable and her staff is amazing, all and all it was a great experience! Our needs were met and she was able to get the job done!"
"Debra did an amazing job on the sale of our house!!! We had already moved so Debra was very hands on regarding helping us with anything that came up. She also does a lot of marketing and has a wide client base which is key in a slow market. I would definitely recommend Debra to anyone looking to buy or sell in the St. Charles area."
"Ruta and the McKay group are great realtors . I would definitely recommend using Ruta and her office. The photographer they use is extremely talented and too beautiful pictures of my home."
"I was referred to Deb from a very close family member who spoke of her very highly. From start to finish Deb, along with her husband Don were incredible to work with. They both have incredible knowledge of the areas and they are truly sweet and caring individuals. No phone call, email or text went unanswered. Deb made the process of buying my new home an absolute pleasure. I would strongly recommend her services to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in the area!"
"We purchased our house from Debora 6 years ago. Through these years, she has always been available when we had questions on home maintenance or home improvement to recommend the right contractor from her vast network. While we were thrilled with the actual buying experience when we worked with Debora and the McKay group, we have been extremely satisfied customers over the past (6) years as well knowing that Debora was always available to help. Kudos to you Debora for providing outstanding customer service!"
"Debora McKay made available to effectively guide and support us in our home selection process a truthful and trustworthy agent. An agent who was professionally opinionated as to the features, functions and benefits of all the properties we were viewing concisely identifying how these met and did not meet our criteria. This agent wasn't impartial, her client was her focus and her client's unreserved satisfaction was her goal. She wasn't trying to notch up another sale. She was beside us each step of the process. And, two months on from the agreement, she's still there to help us with settling in. We met a great agent, we gained an even better friend! Thanks, Debora McKay."
"Debora and her team were absolute pros at every step of the sale of our house. They really know the market in St. Charles and we had a lot of people view our home. The quality of the photography and promotional materials were outstanding. We couldn't have worked with a better Realtor! Thank you!"
"I had a great experience with Deborah as my listing agent to renew the effort after a disappointing attempt for almost a year on the market. The house got sold in just 3 months with Deborah. Deborah has been resourceful,responsive and professional. I would definitely and wholeheartedly recommend Deborah. Thanks Deborah."
"Working with Debora was such a nice experience and I will definitely call her for my future needs with real estate. Responded quickly to questions that I had. Thanks again!""
"This is our 4th sale/purchase with Debora/The McKay Group and we are repeat clients for a reason! The knowledge, service and professionalism of her and her entire team is second to none and we couldn’t be more grateful!"
