Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Happy Valley, OR.
Deborah is a great real estate agent. When we initially started the process we had our list of what we were looking for. She worked diligently to find properties and she also brought us listings that were a little outside of our box to show us other options as well. She is extremely proactive and was always contacting agents about listings and following up with us. She provided us with expectations along the way so we were always aware of the next steps and how long each part of the process took. With Deborah, you know you have an expert on your side. We really appreciated all her help and insight and will use her again and refer her to our friends!

Thanks very much, Heather. It was a pleasure working with you and your family. I think we found you a great home - just perfect for your family's needs. I'm glad I was able to find you what you need and I look forward to helping your family and friends with their real estate needs. deborah
Deborah was professional from the beginning. Responding immediately to my inquires. She spent time helping to find an existing house that might work for us but we just could not find the right match finally settling on building. While working with the Builder Deborah was invaluable. Deborah had extensive knowledge and helped us with the contract documents to make sure we covered every one our concerns during construction and at the final closing. Deborah even checked on the construction progress of our home while we were away for 4 months, keeping us informed of any problems or concerns along the way! Simply put, Deborah is TERRIFIC!

Thanks so much! You guys were wonderful to work with and your sense of style was very apparent. You chose excellent finishes! I'm glad you're happy in your home and that you found what worked for you. dg
Deborah's skills in market area research and marketing strategies, her excellent resources, helpfulness and honesty made our sale possible from out of town. She turned my nightmare---selling my 90 year old mother's 50 year old home from MY home base 300 miles away ---into a manageable, quick and profitable process!
Deborah was personally recommended to me by my mother's extremely satisfied ex- neighbor whose house she sold in record time for an excellent price. Our own sale experience was as stress-free as possible. She listened to us and was personable and compassionate. She was readily available and we always felt that we were a priority although she was very busy.
Deborah emphasized the property's best features, recommended reasonable repairs, decorative touches and minor updates that would ultimately result in a quick and profitable sale, staged it well and immediately held an Open House. Her efforts resulted in multiple offers within 2 days and a quick sale. Deborah is trustworthy and smart and we highly recommend her!!!

Can Zillow help you find a really, really good agent? It can. Start with the reviews, these are real experiences. The best agents show a pattern of solid reviews from previous clients. Once you zero in on a likely candidate, personal conversations with the agent will reveal work ethic. They will reveal the presence of a genuine concern for the best interest of the client.
Can Zillow help you find a really, really good agent? It can. We found Deborah through Zillow. Deborah Giles is the best real estate agent we've ever encountered through numerous real estate transactions. Our challenge was to make good decisions 2000 miles removed from Oregon. Deborah made the distance and the decisions manageable and we trusted her judgment. We had a great result. We will always appreciate Deborah's professionalism, effort and attentiveness to our best interest.

By the end of the process, Deborah was a true friend. She knows HUD, Good Neighbor Next Door, and the inner workings of buying homes from the government. She works diligently, is self-sufficient, and deserves every dollar of her small percentage.
I bought my first home as a single male and she made me feel confident and prepared when it came time to sign. I would come to her still, 8 months later for advice or counsel. She is a hard worker and just a nice, trustworthy person! Thanks Deborah!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Richmond, Portland, OR.
Deborah was very professional in her appearance, presentation, and market knowledge. She recommended a realistic selling price based on recent area sales history and listings. She held an open house immediately and was able to obtain multiple full offer bids. The house sale was conditional on several home improvements (heating oil tank removal, sewer line replacement, etc.) which made the sale complicated in terms of communication with all parties (buyer and vendors) , timing of work and payments. Her work was instrumental insuring all requirements were fairly negotiated and executed. We were out of town sellers and Deborah helped coordinate contractors work in our absence. She sold our house quickly and within our guidelines. I highly recommend Deborah as a realtor and in the process she became a good trusted friend.

Deborah is amazing! She helped my husband and I through the first-time home buying process with grace and ease. She is experienced, knowledgeable, and hard-working. Her no pressure, honest approach was just what we needed to successfully get through the process of finding and buying our dream home. We would definitely use Deborah again and would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling property.
Showed home in 2012 in Powellhurst Gilbert, Portland, OR 97266.
I went through the first time home buying process last year with Deborah and she was so dedicated and thorough. The house I was looking at needed a lot of work and she spent many hours with me discussing my options, meeting with contractors, and going out of her way to help me find what I needed and what would be best for me and the house. She is hardworking, knowledgeable, and honest. I can't imagine going though this process with anyone else!
