Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Andover, MA.

Debbie is very exceptionally gifted to provide the client all her real eastate insight, out of the box thinking, honest opinion, can do approach, pleasant personality, and hans-on experience. So far, she is the best real estate agent I ever worked with. She helped me to buy and sell several luxary houses in Andover in last 3 years. I rest her the best ( 10 out of 10) who really has reat passion for every aspects of her profession.

Sold a home in 2013 in Cliftondale, Saugus, MA 01906.

After a few "let downs" in selling our condo,we decided to go with another realtor as soon as our contract was finished. And am I glad we did!!! Deb Forte was truly amazing! She put it right back on the market and we sold it for more than we anticipated.And sold it sooner than expected. Bravo Deb! She is a true Realestate professional and loves what she does.She is punctual,aggresive and knows how to get the job done!And she has a great team as well! Thank you Deb..You ROCK! i will recomend her for all our friends and famlies real estate needs. She is the best!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Amesbury, MA.

We have had a wonderful experience working with Deb Forte as our Buyer's Agent from the first time we met 8 months ago all the way until the purchase of our first home. She was always very enthusiastic with each home we looked at, pointed out the positives in every situation, but never pushed us to do anything we weren't ready for. Since we (the buyers) didn't live in the same location before purchasing our first home, it was very difficult to coordinate our schedules to see houses, but Deb always made it work with her schedule and ours, seeing anywhere from 3-6 homes back to back in one day to accommodate us. She was also very quick to respond to phone calls, texts, and especially emails. She never made it seem like we were bothering her with even the simplest of questions or concerns. And if by chance she had previous commitments when we wanted to see houses, she would send her husband and partner in business, Bill, who was also very nice and professional, so we didn't miss out on seeing anything. I would highly recommend Deb Forte to anyone looking to buy a home in the North Shore area. She was willing to go anywhere whenever we needed her to, and worked with us continuously to narrow down the search and eventually find us "the house". I hope this review helps potential buyers looking for an agent!

Bought a home in 2013 in Boxford Station, North Andover, MA 01845.

My experience with Deb and William was wonderful. When I found a house (that turned out to be "the house") it was their quick response time and smart negotiation skills that got our offer accepted. They even went out of their way at night to drop off our offer in the listing agent's mailbox! I highly reccommend working with Deb and William! They are excellent.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Haverhill, MA.

Deb Forte is a very high energy agent who is very quick to reply to emails, texts, etc. She also gave honest opinions of houses we looked at instead of just trying to push us into one to make a sale.

We found the house we wanted, and Deb helped us tremendously in buying it. Definite professional and highly recommended

Best of the Best

Attempting a short sale purchase without an outstanding buyer’s agent is a waste of time. Deb was a true advocate for our family throughout the whole process. Deb promptly returns all calls, gets answers ASAP, finds solutions for seemingly insurmountable obstacles, and does it all with a smile. Deb has the ultimate “can do” attitude, and motivated everyone involved to make this deal happen. I sincerely feel that only 1 in 1000 real estate agents would have gotten us this deal and managed to get it closed in time for my daughter to start the school year at her new school. Deb is that needle in a haystack.

A home purchase is a major life event; don’t leave it up to a friend of a friend. We were never left to fend for ourselves. Deb was extremely flexible and was fantastic about scheduling things like inspections, second and third viewings, and of course the closing. She was very deadline conscious, making sure everything was done ahead of schedule. She coordinated the mortgage company, the shortsale bank, the attorneys, the inspectors, and even the other agent who was on vacation at the time of the closing. Deb’s assistance didn’t stop at closing; she even negotiated a great deal from a plumber for me! With the market the way it is, and deals constantly falling through, don’t leave things to chance; go with a top notch professional.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Haverhill, MA.

Deb Forte is an amazing realtor! Deb was our realtor in buying our first home. As first time home buyers it was so assuring to have a realtor like Deb that ALWAY had our best interest at heart.

The amount of time Deb took out of her schedule to review homes we were possibly interested in. She would go over the area (neighborhoods) schools, houses that we shouldn't bother seeing. Also at closing she made sure we had a great closing lawyer that would take good care of us which he did as well.

I cannot express how wonderful Deb is and how easy she made buying our first home. With all the stress and time involved she made it easy!

You will be so happy with Deb as your realtor and you'll be treated like family!

Bought a home in 2010 in West Village, North Reading, MA 01864.

Deb Forte came to us through ZipRealty....we were moving from the South Shore to the North Shore and didn't know much about the area. Deb listened to what type of home we were looking for and researched areas/towns that would best fit our commutes to work. Deb also recommended local attractions and restaurants, which we probably would not have gone to on our own. When we ran into problems with the sale of our home, Deb was there to calm our nerves and assure us that everything would be fine. She always kept in contact with us, our attorney, the seller of our new home and his realtor. Without Deb's help, we probably would have just given up and stayed put. We would definitley seek Deb out, if we ever move again.

Deb followed thru and kept us informed step by step right up to the passing of papers. Her expertise and negotiating skills got us the house we wanted. She has a vast amount of knowledge in dealing with short sales. Deb goes more than the extra mile. She takes all the worry out of buying real estate. I highly recommend anyone to deal with Deb, she will steer you in the right direction.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $250K in Haverhill, MA.

Deb was great! We looked at so many properties to find the right one and she was so patient. She really helped guide us through the home buying process and gave us the information we needed to make the right decision. As first time home buyers it was so nice having such a great agent that had so much knowledge and experience. We would definitely recommend Deb.
