Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Silver Spring, MD.
Debby Wimsatt was delightful to work with throughout the whole process. We were first-time home buyers, looking for an affordable condo or townhouse in the Silver Spring area, with a fixed rate 30 year mortgage. Although we tried to educate ourselves about buying a home before we got serious, there were many things we didn’t know. Debby was extremely helpful and explained all the details to us.

Once we started looking at listings it turned out that the properties that seemed to fit our needs were often listed as potential short sales. We didn’t really know what a short sale was, but since Debby has a lot of experience with short sales she was able to explain all the potential difficulties involved.

It took us a few months of looking at properties before we found the one we really loved. It was a short sale and it was listed at a very reasonable price. When we made the offer we asked Debby how we could better our chances of getting this home, since we really wanted this particular one. Based on Debby’s advice we made a strong offer, and our offer was the one that got accepted.

Debby had warned us that because this was a short sale it could take several months between our offer being accepted and the actual closing of the home purchase. She was right about that, it actually took more than three months to close. Since we were prepared to wait and be patient it was not a problem.

Now we have moved into our new home and we are completely satisfied. Debby provided us with helpful contacts to obtain a lending approval letter and eventually the 30 year fixed rate mortgage we were looking for. She was always responsive to our emails and phone calls and did not mind showing us properties on weekend days. We highly recommend Debby to anyone looking to purchase a home, especially if you are a first time home buyer.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Germantown, MD.
I met Debby by looking on-line. Nobody recommended her to me, but I found that she is an outstanding agent. She is so professional and persistent.

It took more than 7 months since the moment we saw the house until the closing day. This was a complicated process because we requested approval to the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to purchase the community properties through FHA loans; this was not just a benefit for me, but for the whole community. She kept contact with the HUD, the listing agent and the mortgage house. She kept me informed all the way trough.

Debby immediately responded to my many inquiries either by phone, text or email.

She has excellent negotiation skills, and always looked for my best when negotiating. Debby has also a broad and deep knowledge of the Montgomery area. She always presented me the options that met each of my requirements. However, if there was something not good for me (for example, repairs costs), she always let me know about it.

Safety was one of my main concerns; I can tell you know that I'm so pleased with the area where I moved in.

Another issue for me was English, which is my second language. I was worried about making this important transaction and not been able to fully understand things. Debby made everything so easy and clear to me. I never felt lost.

I would say that thanks to Debby's effort, today I'm in my place, and I strongly recommend her.

Bought a home in 2012.
I'm a first-time home buyer so I don't have much to compare to, but Debby was a pleasure to work with. Once I had selected the homes I was interested in, she showed me them, prioritizing the ones she thought I'd like best based on my description of what I wanted.

While I was considering the different homes, Debby also helped me navigate the complex world of securing a lender's letter and later the actual home loan. Her resources and experience were invaluable during this process.

I made two offers on two different houses - the first one I lowballed, and Debby let me know it would probably not get accepted. But she walked me through the process anyway, taking special care to make sure I knew what I was signing - and there is a lot of stuff to sign! It did end up getting rejected.

My second offer was on a different house, and this time was more in line with Debby's guidance. There was some last minute scrambling to get a local lender's letter (I had gotten one from a big-name internet lender) and Debby took care of it all. We also had some negotiations on price that Debby handled wonderfully.

In the end I got the house I wanted, at the price I wanted, got a great interest rate, and have no regrets.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $650K in Severna Park, MD.
Very easy to work with and always available. We moved from out of town and needed a realtor who allowed for flexibility and provided direction of which we received both.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2011 for approximately $400K in Germantown, MD.
Debby assisted us in selling our Germantown, Maryland townhome. Debby offered market advice, assisted with staging (including recommending appropriate paint colors, lending us floral arrangements and suggesting vendors to address the small issues that were identified during the inspections) and even baked cookies to ensure our home showed effectively. We received an offer within 48 hours of putting the house on the market. I highly recommend Debby's services.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $200K in Silver Spring, MD.
My overall experience with Debby was terrific. She was very attentive, which I hadn't experienced before and wish I had. She always got back to me quickly. I got to see every house I wanted to see, and quickly. With her help, I was able to find the home I wanted and close on it in short order. Her expertise during the loan application and settlement process helped minimize the stress and maximum my confidence. She was very professional throughtout the entire process.

I would recommend Debby to friends and family.

Bought a Single Family home in 1998 in Millville, DE.
After owning my first home for nearly 40 years it was time to downsize. The only Realtor I turned to is Debby Wimsatt. She has completed my transactions for my family, so I knew she was the only choice for me. Debby has always treated me with respect and professionalism. She has walked me through some tough choices and explored many different options for me in order to successfully complete my transactions. She has gone over and beyond the call of a Realtor – she has become a friend I can turn to.

Bought a home in 1997.
I feel very fortunate to have met Debby Wimsatt back in 1997. I was buying my first home and didn't have a lot of understanding of what I was actually doing at the time. Debby was not only very knowledgeable about the market, but she was also someone I could trust from the first moment I met her. Debby has assisted me for the buying and selling my first home in Olney, MD and buying and renting out of my second home in Rockville, MD. Debby has become our family’s Realtor as well. She was the first choice for my nephew and his wife, as they bought and sold their first home in Frederick, MD. She was there for my mom when she bought and sold her condo in Columbia, MD and finally, as my mom recently purchased her beautiful townhouse in Bethany Beach, DE. Debby has always been there for me and my family. She is not only our ONE and ONLY Realtor, but a true friend!
