Showed home in 2014 in Hootentown, Winchester, KY 40391.
I contacted Debbie through Zillow and made an appointment to see houses with her the following day.
I confirmed appointment time the following day with her, however she was 30 mins late to the first house.
After following her to the second house, her knowledge about the structure of that house impressed me, but when I led the way to the third house (less than a mile away), my children and I sat waiting for her for more than 30 mins again.
When I texted her to tell her we were leaving, she said she was on her way. It was too late. Impression already made.
I contacted a different agent that evening and have had a much better experience at home shopping.
We did not know which county we wanted to live in since we were new to KY and Debbie was very helpful. Took us to every single place we wanted to see and drove thousands of miles until we found our home. Very knowledgable about the purchase process and what to expect, gave us some pointers so we didn't get ourselves into trouble and was willing to go the extra mile to help us with everything. Love her and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home.
Debbie helped me through buying my first home and provided excellent service. The process was complicated by extra documentation requirements for a home buying program I was going through, surprises on home inspections, mistakes at the city level and other circumstances neither of us could control. Through all of that, Debbie stuck with me, guided me through the process and kept me reassured that I would get my home. The process took quite some time (because of those external factors) and we had to deal with multiple properties before we found the perfect one, but Debbie never got impatient, continued to provide the highest level of service and expedited the process whenever she could. Best of all, she was so kind and helpful to a first time home-buyer; she laid my fears to rest at every turn, and I really felt that she was on my side. I love the house that Debbie helped me buy, but if I ever leave it, I'll contact her again for the next one!
My husband and I lucked into finding Debbie during our house hunting. She was the realtor on the first house that caught our eye, and showed us that house. That house didn't work out, and despite me knowing many other realtors, we decided to give Debbie a call and have her show us some others. She'd been very helpful in the first process, and I decided when buying a house, I just wanted to keep friends out of the scenario. Debbie arranged for us to see about 10 houses that next day, and got it together in a relatively short amount of time. She was very helpful with getting everything together and pointing out things to look for. All in all, we looked at about 15 houses with Debbie, before we found our diamond in the rough. But we found it, and with her help and that of the mortgage company, we were able to make an offer, close, and be moved in within one month. It honestly couldn't have gone more smoothly. It was a great experience, and I would highly recommend having Debbie help you find your dream home!
