Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $3.075M in Del Mar Heights, Del Mar, CA.
We chose Debbie because she has the best marketing and brought a team of professionals who helped us greatly. She personally guided all showings, and was thorough, professional, patient, responsive, and always a pleasure to work with. We’re glad we chose Debbie to represent us in the sale of our home!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.7M in Del Mar Heights, Del Mar, CA.
It was a relief to be able to entrust the sale of our home to Debbie and her team, especially after we moved away. When the first buyer couldn’t get financing and backed out, Debbie worked to quickly bring in a backup buyer. During escrow she took care of all the many details, and we couldn’t have done it without her. Great communications, consistent follow through, terrific results, and she was a pleasure to work with!
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.275M in Del Mar, CA.
"Above and beyond the call of duty" says it all about how Debbie handled the search for and eventual purchase of our first home in the United States. We are overseas buyers and were looking to settle in a good neighborhood with good schools to raise our kids. Despite having initially contacted Debbie through the internet and meeting only once to view houses on the back of a business trip, Debbie quickly got a sense of the specific area and price point that we were interested in. She kept us abreast of new listings and price changes even though we were thousands of miles away. On the back of her email, we diverted from an Arizona business trip to see a house that ticked all the checkboxes. Long story short, we slid in with a backup offer that Debbie still made sure protected our interests as buyers. After we made our deposit we flew out to California for two days to do the house inspection and double-check our decision. This is when Debbie really shined! We flew in that morning and had the house for about five hours. We hired the inspector, but beyond that Debbie arranged everything else: a deck contractor, an architect, and the listing agent all came by one after another to give us quotes and discuss feasibility of some of the changes we wanted to do. Day 2: Debbie arranged a second contractor and then viewing of the neighboring house and another house at our request. By that time we'd received the inspection report and were comfortable enough to have Debbie negotiate on our behalf in removing contingencies. Talk about efficiency!
Overall, we felt that Debbie was always on top of things. She answered all of our questions and, despite the time difference, was able to respond to us within 24hours. We did not feel pressured and, most importantly, felt that Debbie was honest with us -both pros and cons. Beyond arranging meetings, she gave us recommendations on contractors/insurance she's used before and tips about proceeding with our purchase/renovation. She knows the area very well and could even advise us on limitations with regard to city permits, etc. I'm sure that dealing with us being overseas is unconventional to say the least, and we really don't think we would have gotten the house without Debbie's expertise and superb organization. If only all deals went this smoothly. We feel comfortable and confident in our purchase. Thank you again Debbie for an excellent job and we would recommend Debbie in a heartbeat. Terry and Kathy.

Debbie did a wonderful job selling our house in Del Mar Heights, under strenous conditions. She was very professional and made sure all the necessary paperwork was done correctly. She interfaced nicely with the other agent, and made the deal a win-win situation. The home closed on time and to my satisfaction. I highly recommend her to anyone looking.

It’s a pleasure working with Debbie because we have confidence that she knows what matters and makes sure it’s done well. We gave Debbie the basic parameters for what we were looking for – and she took it from there. With her help, we were able to efficiently find and purchase a bank-owned home at an unbelievable price.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $725K in Encinitas, CA.
It wasn’t easy to find an affordable home near downtown Encinitas, and we looked for over six months before finding a great “fixer”. Debbie hung in there with us, and helped us land a complicated deal with many moving parts. Her referrals of inspection and financing professionals were helpful, but it was her relationship and credibility with the listing agent that enabled the deal to stay together so we could get what we wanted.
Debbie is a pleasure to work with! She is extremely thorough in all aspects of her work, insuring that all of your real estate needs and transactions are met with the highest level of professionalism and satisfaction --- and treating the transaction as if it were her own purchase or sale. She brings excellent attention to detail in all of her processes, and I would highly recommend her real estate expertise.
Bought a Condo home in 2010 for approximately $100K in Oceanside, CA.
We purchased multiple investment properties with Debbie representing us. She helped us navigate the complexities of short sales and REOs, helping us know when to act quickly and when to have patience. The bottom line was smooth, efficient deals at rock bottom prices and positive cash flows. A year later, comparable sales show good appreciation. Thanks Debbie!

Debbie took the time to understand my specific real estate needs including price, location and features. During the home search, she provided timely updates regarding candidate properties and quickly scheduled home tours.
