I lost hope, but Debbie never did. I didn't even want to go to look at the house I'm living in now - but Debbie felt it was "the one" and she was right. I knew it was too, the moment we walked in the front door. She is knowledgeable about the ins and outs of contracts, legal issues and negotiation. Besides that, she is kind and very ethical.
During the 2 years we searched, she never pressured me to buy a home. Her thought was, you have to really be happy with it, and not have reservations. I put money down on a few, but BACKED OUT because they just "weren't right" for me. Debbie was perfectly OK with that - she wanted me to love my house. I'm so glad I listened to her and waited. This house was worth waiting for!
Debbie helped us sell our house after we moved out of state. It was difficult for us to manage our time and commit to the process of selling, and we had a ton of stress about going into it, but Debbie worked with us and made it all possible. She was patient and helpful and found a buyer.
