Debi possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent broker: she knows the market extremely well; she is very professional , diligent, responsive, and very patient with her clients. In our particular case as a buyer and seller of two houses, there were many rough spots on the road while having back-to-back closings on the same day, Debi and her team was a great help. The service we received from Debi was excellent! We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process.” ~ Client Review

We have used Debi to both purchase and sell homes and think she is the best realtor we know.” ~ Client Review
