Deborah represented me as a seller and buyer. As a seller, she helped me sold my condo for $210K over asking for a tri-level condo, in a busy, not desirable street in just 9 days. As a buyer, she helped me purchase a brand new top floor condo, at less than asking price (which is never heard of, in this fiercely competitive market.) She and Christian are the hardest Realtor I've ever worked it in san francisco. There hasn't been a time when I text or email her (before, or after we've closed both transactions that she hasn't gotten back to me within a few hours, if not immediately.)
Deborah's negotiating skills, and her brand name, are crucial to both transactions. In this highly competitive market, if you want to buy something, you want to work with an agent who they've worked with before, or heard of based on their reputation (she ranked #1 @ Zephyr in Q1 of 2014.) This could mean the difference of getting top dollars for the home you want to sell or getting your offer accepted right away vs rejected or ignored over other offers.
