I used Debra to both sell and buy my homes, when I met her for the first time she was so grounded and not a ‘pushy’ type of sales person. After talking with her and hearing how she worked, it was a given that she was going to be my agent. She pays attention to detail and wants to understand your needs, it’s not about her, she is all about her clients. She wants to provide you with the best possible outcome. In selling my house, she was instrumental in ‘staging’ the house to allow it to show it’s true potential, that even meant re-painting walls and with reluctance but true faith it was done. Re-arranging your home is stressful but Debra kept re-assuring me that this is how to get the maximum show ability and it worked.
When it came time to negotiate the deal Debra was there with her calm and collected demeanor, she goes into the negotiation 100% committed to you and getting the best price, her ongoing communication with me and the ‘What next steps’ to take advice was so helpful and re-assuring that the deal came off so smoothly.
When it came time to buy, Debra again gave me all her focus and attention to understand what I wanted in a home and even though I may have not been clear - she already knew, because she really listens and gets to know you so she has that idea of what type of place you will be happy in to suit you, your lifestyle and your budget. We looked at many homes but she knew as soon as we walked through the front door of one that ‘This was it’ and she was not wrong, I bought it, we had a tough negotiation but Debra persevered and really went to bat for me, knowing we could not let this on get away. It was tense times but Debra kept me calm and always kept the communication open to what was going on both sides. To end this great story my new home became the talk of her office, as during the home inspection we found that “Surprise” in the attic above the garage and not even THAT could phase her – as we both knew this still was the house for me. ***
Thanks Debra for all you hard work, it was such an enjoyable experience.
