Bought a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Prospect Park, PA.
I cannot say more about our experience with Deb. She listened to our needs from our very first conversation all the way up until closing and gave us excellent guidance and advice throughout the process of our first home purchase, which was not without bumps (..out of her control of course!). We were purchasing a home And an income property (duplex) and so there were several moving parts. We found our house the first trip out (although took a few more for good measure) and there was never a time that we did not know what to expect when making an offer, negotiating terms of settlement, ordering inspections and ironing out underwriting requirements. Deb is the epitome of a professional and she truly has her clients best interests in mind.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Swarthmore, PA.
Debbie assisted my family and me with an inter-state relocation. We were unable to do a house-hunting trip, so the property we were going to buy would be selected "sight unseen".
Working with Debbie was seamless despite the many obvious obstacles to in inter-state move: Time difference, inability to view properties in person, etc... Debbie setup some great online searches based on our criteria and this allowed us to quickly zero in on neighborhoods and properties that best fit our needs.
Debbie was "always on" - available though email, text and phone night and day. She was our "eyes and ears" and gladly made many trips to many houses before we found the right one. She even video taped walk-throughs so that we saw properties as if we were right there with her.
During contract negotiations, she played hardball and was a able to negotiate a great sales agreement that accounted for numerous complexities. She is well networked and was able to provide recommendation for numerous services we needed to close on our home (inspector, structural engineer, loan officer, etc...)
Whether you are looking to move down the block or from out-of-state, we would recommend Debbie as your buying agent.

Todd, thank you for taking the time to post this review. I wanted to say that purchasing a home is a 2 way street and you were absolutely wonderful to work with. Enjoy your new home!
Deb was determined, persistent, and extremely responsive in all respects during our search for the right home. She worked hard to make sure we were happy and didn't stop until we found "it". I'm so thankful we found her! She's amazing!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Garnet Valley, PA.
It was a pleasure to work with Deb during the search for our home. She was highly effective in responding with the information we really wanted for each property. Deb is a genuine person and quickly earned our trust. I look forward to her assistance for all of my future realtor needs!
Working with Debbie was a dream! She is professional and knowledgable, warm and friendly too. She kept us completely updated at all times. Living in New Jersey and selling a house in Pa., was sure to be a nightmare I thought, but once I met Debbie and saw how she works, I was completely confident and had peace of mind knowing that the sale was in excellent hands!!! She is an incredible realtor and I have recommended her to everyone I know in Pa!!! Thank you Debbie for the smooth, swift sale of my father's house!! You made what could've been a nightmare into such an easy time! You truly are the best!!!
Although Debbie did not help me directly, I had referred a friend to her who wanted to list their home. She connected with her on short notice , listed the home and sold it in less than 5 weeks. I was very thankful she was able to help my friend. She was very knowledgeable and professional.
Sold a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $350K in Glenolden, PA.
I was among Deb Toner's first clients as a real estate agent. I found her to be hard working on my behalf. I traveled most of the week and so only had time to visit houses on the weekend although my housemate was able to visit locations during the week. I knew what I wanted in a home and after a few months Deb was able to find for us the house that felt like home.
When it came time to sell my condo at the time, Deb was right there bringing clients to see my condo and offering suggestions on how to show the condo successfully. The condo was a bit over priced at first, but we quickly adjusted and the condo was sold at a price that was to my satisfaction.
In a subsequent period of time I decided to sell my vacation home which was located in another state. She was able to look into her network and hook me up with a local real estate agent.
I have known Deb personally for many years and have always found her to be a hard worker, and a person who deals fairly in sometimes difficult circumstances. I would recommend her to anyone who wishes to buy or sell real estate.
