Debbie is an incredibly knowledgeable, trustworthy and reliable realtor. Not knowing whether we wanted to buy or rent, Debbie provided us with tools and honest guidance to help us determine what made most sense for our family financially. When we decided to buy, Debbie regularly sent us listings that matched our criteria and coordinated all the showings to fit our schedule. She is incredibly responsive and always responded to our emails and calls -- often within minutes. Debbie knows the Silver Spring area very well and she knows which homes will sell quickly, which homes are over/under priced, and which homes could potentially be difficult to sell down the road. When we found our home, Debbie provided us with spot-on advice and helped us navigate the buying process seamlessly. Debbie was especially helpful during the inspection process and got the seller to fix all items we requested. Even after the closing when we noticed a small but fixable problem in the home; Debbie contacted the seller who agreed to fix it. Buying a home is stressful, a good realtor is worth every penny they earn – especially Debbie.

We worked with Debbie as first-time homebuyers and she made the experience so much better! She was though tful and patient with us, and extremely knowledgeable of both the area and the process. She was also completely responsive - I think she took one vacation the whole time we worked with her and made sure we were 100% covered while she was gone just in case. I couldn't recommend her more!

Debbie was recommended to us by a colleague, and I will wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in the area. She has extensive knowledge of the Silver Spring, MD area. She very quickly understood what we were looking for in our new home, and didn't waste a moment of time tying to help us find a great fit. She has a great sense of humor and made a traditionally stressful process a whole lot easier.

My husband and I connected with Debbie through a first-time home buyer's seminar she led at the Silver Sp ring Civic Center. We thought she seemed friendly and knowledgeable and decided to work with her to buy our first home. Debbie is a lifelong Silver Spring resident, so she knows the area VERY well. She was always super responsive and accessible, and she skillfully guided us through the process of buying our house, from making an offer to dealing with problems that came up during the inspection. We wound up buying a fantastic house in a wonderful neighborhood that we thought we had no chance at getting, all thanks to Debbie's help!! We highly recommend her.

Debbie is with her clients every step of the way! When we first met her, she emphasized that her job is to support us as buyers. She was completely right! As first-time home buyers we felt very fortunate to draw on her expertise in local properties, the buying process, and negotiations. When we toured homes, she made sure to point out good quality appliances and features AND warning signs of possible costly problems. When it came time to make an offer, my husband and I were prepared to offer close to list price, but she encouraged us to go lower. She also worked with us to create a full list of contingency items and made sure the sellers made all the improvements we requested or gave us credits. She followed up with the lenders when they were close to missing a deadline. She also gave us excellent recommendations for our inspection and title company. Debbie is hardworking, focused, knowledgeable, and a lot of fun! I'm so glad we had her on our side.

Debbie is thoughtful, patient, and an excellent guide when looking at homes. She is also nice and a pleas ure to talk with. We were first time home buyers so her knowledge and ability to explain things to us along the way was great. Debbie helped us decide what contingencies to ask for and was right on the mark.

Debbie worked with us over several years as we casually looked at housing in our area. She was always wi lling to show us houses when we were interested, and was happy to work with us on our (very) long timeline. Once we found the right house for us, Debbie expertly navigated us through a multi-offer situation to success. She was timely, instructed us on what we needed to do and when, and supported us 110% of the way. We are in our dream house and are so grateful to Debbie for helping us get here.

Debbie was fantastic - we found a house we loved much faster than expected, she helped us put together a competitive, successful offer, she was hands-on getting us ready for closing, and went above and beyond helping us get an extra inspection and estimate for some work. She knows the local area extremely well, I would highly recommend her.

Debbie was amazing, we are so lucky to have had her recommended to us. I really can't say enough good th ings about her, but here are some that particularly stood out to me: she understood exactly what we wanted, and us being from out of town, I didn't feel like we were wasting our time looking at places that weren't a good fit for us, and as for the places that we didn't like right away, she was very good about us being able to just leave without being too talkative or pushy. She also helped us throughout the whole purchase process, explained everything, negotiated on our behalf, and I never felt like she was trying to do what's best for herself as opposed to what's best for us. Since it was our first home purchase and we really didn't know anything, we were really lucky to have come across her.
