Deborah has extensive knowledge about real estate and she helped us to find our first place. She is very through and pro-active in her approach. It was long journey but fruitful one and she acted as guide and friend. I will recommend Deborah to all my friends.
Deborah was with us the entire time we were looking for a house. She showed great patience while going through our list of priorities and must haves. Also she was always responsive and readily available whenever we requested to see a property. She knows westchester pretty well and had great tips about the area. It took us about a year with short sales and couple of offers which got outbid to get our place but Deborah was always there looking out for our best interests. She is such pleasure to work with that even after closing we call her to ask for recommendations about home improvements. Thanks so much Deborah.

How do I begin to describe Deborah ....Incredible,knowledgeable,patient,available to answer questions at any time of day or night. And if for some reason she doesn't know the answer she makes it her business to find out. Deborah worked with myself and fiancé (property virgins)for about a year an a half before finding our home. The process was long excusing and at times frustrating for us all,however she always maintained her professionalism. Even when I called her one day very upset and overwhelmed and told her that "we're done looking that it was to hard,disappointing an I can't do this anymore" she simply said its ok take as much time as you need I'll be here whenever you guys are ready to start again. We took about 3mths off and called her back and it was like no time had past we picked right back up and hit the ground running. We found our house within 1mth,however it was a short sale an as everyone knows there's nothing short about a short sale. Deborah was there every step of the way she never left our side providing invaluable advice,easing fears,making copies,being the go between when confusion arose and all the while reassuring us that all the hard work will be worth it........and I must say she's right. It has been our honor and great pleasure to work with such an individual, Deborah is no longer just our realtor she is now our friend and will help us celebrate our love at our wedding in 2014. Week 3 of home reno and Virgins no more!!!!

As a 1st-time buyer, Deborah assured my experience would run smoothly; which it did. She went beyond what I expected, and maintained a professional and very friendly relationship with me during the entire process. She made sure I followed up on all the steps of home ownership, as well as informed me of the necessary items I had to submit and/or request from the proper sources. I was totally lost at times and when she sensed my frustrations she promptly took control of the situation and rectified what needed to be done by my lawyer and bank. Deborah also kept in touch with me at least once a week; always via a phone call and by email when necessary. Even when she had personal things to do she maintained contact with me. Most importantly, she always made me feel comfortable about requesting or demanding any type of help from her.

Deborah is a loyal and a true professional agent. She hung in there with us for a long time till we found the house that was right for my wife and I. I will always be happy to refer her to anyone who is looking to buy a house.Thank you Deborah for your knowledge and dedication.
Deborah is a great realtor. This was my first time purchasing my first home, and she went high an low to make sure I was taking care of and dealt with properly. She treated me like family. She educated me about home buying, knew the area very well, she was always just a phone call away, and always on time.
Deborah is a friendly, honest, straightforward, caring and hardworking realtor. I would highly recommend working with her 100%.
Deb has always been willing to go above and beyond in regards to getting me a place. Whether you are talking about her driving to pick you up for a showing or doing behind the scenes work, she does it. Truly a class act. She delivers.
At the age of 25, not knowing to much about real estate, but wanting to buy property as an investment for my future Deborah was very instrumental in breaking me into the process.
She educated me on the pros and cons of Coop/condos as compared to single family housing, location location location and the different type of mortgages (she is a die hard fan of fixed rate conventional mortgage. She says that "this way you know your payments will not adjust, but will always be the same and is a determining factor as to whether you can actually make the monthly payments three, five, seven and even ten years from now").
The first property that I looked at, although the size was perfect and location was lovely with a view of the Hudson River, it appeared to be overpriced for the amount of work I would have to put into it. Also the fact that there was a proposal to build a parking lot right outside of the kitchen and dining room window didn't help the situation.
After seriously thinking about it I decided not to go through with the contract and I knew that Deborah was disappointed after all the work that had to be done when all that was left to do was go through with the closing.
A few months later after collecting my thoughts, I decided to start looking again and called Deborah, (I didn't think that she would want to be bother with me since the last deal fell through the way it did), but to my surprise she was very happy and willing to work with me again. All that she asked is that I be up front and honest with her throughout the whole process.
Maybe it was her holiday spirit (it was the day after Christmas ) or just luck rubbing of on me, but we started off looking and within two hours we came across a lovely apartment that had just came on the market not even 5 minutes earlier. As the selling agent received the keys from the seller he dropped it in Deborah's hand and I was the first to see what ended up being my current home. It was a lovely 785 square foot, corner coop apartment on the top floor. with lots of natural light, original hard wood floors at an unbelievable price (which she negotiated) in a remarkable clean building, low maintenance fees, with extremely great financial soundness (even to this day).
Although the process was drawn out and took five months to close (due to element out of our control), Deborah stood with me through thick and thin, giving me support in times of frustration. She event took it upon herself to help me get my paper work done taking it from point A to B and even patiently waited to let the appraiser in since I work in lower Manhattan and the apartment is in Westchester county.
At closing she talked to us nicely, gave advise, and gave reference information for stores, contractor and other contacts that we could use when we decided to remodel the apartment. She even checks in on us from time to time and sends us Christmas cards.
She is a god sent and I cannot have had someone more special and talented on my side helping me through this process. She is now a friend and our realtor for life and I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a real estate representative.

We couldn't have asked for more in a real estate agent. As first time home buyers we knew very little about the whole process and how to get started. Deborah was very knowledgable and explained everything in a way we could understand. She is very professional but at the same time has a personality that makes you feel like you've known her for years. We feel she was very honest with us and are very confident in recommending her to anyone who is looking to purchase property. Thanks to Deborah we have found our home sweet home.
