Debbie was helpful, responsive and supportive during the process. Her history with our area was most helpful and it was clear to us that her relationships with everyone involved was based on mutual respect and admiration. We would recommend Debbie to any one thinking of selling their home.<br/><br/>Christie and Ron Cluff

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $700K in Madrona, Torrance, CA.

Debbie was patient and listened to my needs and concerns. She found a home for my family that was exactly what we were looking for. She listed and sold our home in Torrance. The sale price was the highest in the area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.0M in Palos Verdes Estates, CA.

We recently purchased a home with the assistance of Debbie Allen. When my husband and I knew that we were going to be looking for a home in Palos Verdes Estates we both agreed that we wanted to interview realators to make sure that we had the right fit for us. After interviewing Debbie we were pleased and looked no more! We needed to find a home by October and Debbie was able to show us many home throughout the summer and we finally found the home of our dreams in PVE.

At times it was very stressful but Debbie kept us on track and worked with us to close on time and move in by Christmas. We both appreciated her professionalism and her sense of humor. As you know buying a home is not always stress free! If we ever need a realator again in the PVE area I would highly use Debbie's services again. Debbie was a great realator and now has also become our friend!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $775K in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.

Ms Allen came to our house after the first phone call and explained in detail the local market, how she would value and price our house, her role in the transaction, how the process worked and in general market conditions and her estimate of how long it would take to sell the house. She then prepared a detailed book of the selling prices and market times of other houses in the area; my wife and I went with her to view the houses and discussed the strengths and weaknesses of each and compared them to our house. She advised us on how to stage our house. She arranged for and ran a number of broker open houses. She helped us evaluate the offers and that come in and how to respond. She discussed the negotiation style of the various brokers in the area. She showed a very deep understanding of the area, the homes that where for sale and the homes that had been sold and their history (e.g. how much they had come down from the original asking price.). She always promptly returned phone calls and emails. Provided a very good web site with pictures for the house; helped with yard in picking plants to give the house more curb appeal. All and all she was an outstanding agent for us.

Bought a home in 2011 in Rolling Hills Estates, CA 90274.

Debbie combined great local knowledge, experience, and unending energy to find a home for our family. Not only did we find a great place to call home, but Debbie's skill no doubt resulted in a solid investment. We feel extremely lucky to have had a great professional working with us. We will recommend Debbie to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Palos Verdes Estates, CA.

Here is a short note I wrote to debbie expressing my gratitude for her work:

Dear Debbie,

I am writing this note to express my gratitude for your excellent work and friendship on listing and selling my home at 2449 Via Anacapa PVE.

I have so many things to thank you for, so here's a list:

You sold and closed escrow in less than 36 days from the date we first spoke about selling the house! And, for my full asking price.

You successfully represented Both the Buyers and Myself and my wife Karen during the time we were going through a difficult divorce/separation.

Your staff handled the paperwork and details with the detail and professionalism of a large real estate firm.

You hit the "nail on the head" with your advertising and marketing; Things like telling prospective buyers that my home was only 6 houses from the cliff and showing pictures of beautiful Lunada Bay as well as excellent photos of my home (from your trusted photographer) captured the spirit of our Lower LB location.

Your team of Home inspectors, contractors, roofers and legal assistants made me confident that all potential defects in the house were disclosed and I was confident the credits we made to seller were estimated fairly.

And most ofall, I would like to acknowledge your ability to separate the differing realms evident in mixing business and friendship: As a trusted friend and neighbor, I always felt you have placed our families friendship above any real estate business ambition. All the while, never relinquishing your duty to represent my family fairly in negotiations and money matters.

Oh and did I mention that you did all this while doubletiming as what I would call an inspiration to the best of all mothers and wives!

Thank You for all your hard workl

Yours Truly,

Mike

Sold a Single Family home in 2007 in Palos Verdes Estates, CA.

Debbie is a rare agent...she genuinely wants what's best for her clients...it's her nature. She's a creative thinker, resourceful and solution oriented. Very diplomatic and fair...she has a win-win philosophy. Raised in the South Bay, she knows every nook and cranny. She will make time for you, even when she's busy...which she is! She will be your friend long after your transaction.

Debbie sold my home. She is currently listing an income property and helping with an exchange.

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $1.225M in Palos Verdes Estates, CA.

After patiently spending almost 2 years with me looking for the perfect home for my family, we found it! She was so knowledgeable on neighborhoods and schools in the area. It was very important to me to find a neighborhood with a hometown feel. She knew exactly what I wanted and found it. She's amazing.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.025M in Riviera, Redondo Beach, CA.

Debbie is the best. I mean it. After spending over a year with me tirelessly looking for our dream home, she found the perfect home for us. We love it here and found the home of our dreams in the neighborhood we've always wanted, at a reasonable price. It has been over a year now and I miss her terribly.
