Certainly exceeded my expectations. Selling a house was a breeze compared to what I thought it was going to be like, thanks to Debbie. Everything went quickly and smoothly, and she was always there to answer any questions/concerns I had. I ended up with more for the house than I was expecting and I largely have Debbie to thank for that as well, setting a smart offering price to generate interest, ultimately getting me more than I was hoping for. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to go with her.

As a first time home buyer it was important to me to find someone to help me through the process. Someone that was knowledgeable, friendly and would not put any pressure on me. I was referred to Debbie Woolard of William E. Wood, Debbie made the home buying process enjoyable, easy and efficient! In a 3 hours on a Saturday morning, Debbie showed me 10 homes, she had the day mapped out and it went very smooth. She never pressured me into any home, but was very good about pointing out pros and cons to each home and help me make a decision. I am very excited about the home that I chose and the whole process was great! I look forward to buying from Debbie again in the future and would encourage others to give her a call to help as well! I still call her as questions arise and she is there for me as I’m sure she will be for you too!

Debbie is a consummate professional in the field of real estate. As we went through the process of buying our new home, she provided us with excellent advice on the asking price and what we could expect in the negotiation. She also provided us with licensed contractors to complete necessary repairs; we couldn’t have been happier with the work the contractors did on our house. We have also hired Debbie to sell our old house and feel as though her on-line marketing strategy will give us an edge in selling our house. We would highly recommend Debbie Woolard to our friends and family when we need a professional real estate agent.

Debbie is extremely proficient in her knowledge and expertise of the area. She spent countless hours with us researching homes, doing virtual walkthroughs via skype since we are in Germany, and assisting us in person by driving my husband to view at least 30 homes. She was very patient with us as we were extremely picky as to what we were looking for. We couldn’t have found our home without her, and we highly recommend Debbie Woolard

Debbie Woolard is very professional and reliable; every time we had questions she answered promptly and thoroughly. We had some problems with the seller not fulfilling our requests and she jumped in resolving the issue quickly. We consider ourselves very lucky that we had her by our side every step of the purchasing process.

Buying a house is a very laborous process. Sam was wonderful. He was responsive, and met our needs as buyers. I would recommend him to anyone. Sam provided listings, and he was always available. We called him many times to ask question, and he was always willing to help. He kept us informed about houses in the areas we were searching, and that really kept us from wasting time.

One thing we would like to highlight is how efficient and well-organized Debbie Woolard is in real estate! We will relocate to Virginia Beach in June. So we took one week spring break flying all the way from Utah to Virginia Beach. We hoped we could find our dream home in this one week, but we didn’t know how. Debbie Woolard had everything (lists of houses we might be interested in, home inspection, loan applications etc.) well taken care of even before we flew to Virginia Beach. After we arrived in Virginia Beach, she was thoughtful enough to drive to our hotel instead of having our meeting in her office, considering we had two kids with us. Debbie Woolard planned out every detail of our house hunting trip, making the whole process seamless, efficient, easy, and ambiguity-free. We found our dream home in two days, initiated loan application on the third day, and did home inspection on the fourth day. On top of that, we were also happy with the home inspector (John Yaroch) and loan officer (Rusty Parker) Debbie Woolard introduced us to. We would highly recommend Debbie Woolard to everyone who would like to find your dream home or have any real estate needs in Virginia Beach.

We were first time homebuyers and Debbie Woolard really took time to help us understand the home buying process in this real estate market. We have a difficult schedule and she was fantastic at working around it. She also has good professional relationships with local lenders, real estate agents, and title groups that were equally as good at their jobs making the home buying process remarkably smooth and stress free. She really took care of everything so all we really had to do was sign the papers and move in. We highly recommend Debbie Woolard to anyone looking to buy a house.

Haley T. & Greg B. Norfolk, VA

Debbie Woolard was the best agent we could ask for. My husband and I were living out of state moving into the area. She blocked off an entire weekend for us to be able to come look at houses. She was very professional and went out of her way to make sure we were satisfied in every aspect of the home buying process. Every time we called her, even after we got into the area before the house closed, she always had our information readily available. I have realized how good of an agent she is and it seems that she has many, many clients. However, the personal relationship that was developed made my husband and I feel as if we were her only client. She genuinely cares about her clients and has their best interest in mind. As I said, she went above and beyond to accommodate us and our situation. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy a house in the Hampton area. You don’t find an agent everyday that genuinely cares about her clients.

Eric & Andrea W. Virginia Beach, VA

Debbie is a true professional! I didn’t think buying a home all the way from Japan would be possible, but Debbie made it easy. She was able to point out the smallest of details with every house she showed us and was more than willing to work around our unusual schedule, including holidays. A great negotiator and made sure we got the best possible deal on our new home. I could not give a stronger review and recommendation. If you are looking for a home, you need to choose Debbie.

Barry & Yuko S. Chesapeake, VA

This was my first home buying experience. I found and closed on a house within three months of Sam becoming my agent. Sam was patient and informative during the whole process. I do not have an ounce of buyer’s remorse. This house has become my home.

Daquita G. Hampton, VA

Debbie is wonderful! Hands down she the best realtor I have ever work with. She made the process of buying a home painless and comfortable. She takes her time with you and always has a pleasant attitude. I feel like she is one of my family members…thanks Debbie!!

Lance R. Virginia Beach, VA

As first time buyers, we were anxious and unsure about purchasing a new home. Sam Martin and his colleagues were patient, professional, and always available. Sam made us a top priority and worked diligently to help us find our dream home. He never rushed us and offered sound advice. Our first experience buying a home was one that we will never forget because of Sam. His enthusiasm and knowledge about the market helped us find the perfect home. We would highly recommend Sam as an agent to anyone looking to list or buy a home. He takes pride in his job and makes the experience easy and enjoyable. Any future real estate endeavors we pursue will only be done through the assistance of Sam. We wouldn’t dream of using anyone else!

Alex & Kelly E. Virginia Beach, VA

Debbie made my first home buying experience a breeze! I have since recommended her to several of my friends and family. Very personable and professional! I will definetly use Debbie for my next home purchase and continue to recommend her to anyone I know!

Jamie A. Virginia Beach, VA

Debbie was excellent to work with. We gave her our criteria and within a short amount of time, she emailed us about 30 locations for us to consider. We ended up choosing one of those, going to see it and purchasing our home. She is knowledgable about the area and homes in general. Great experience.

Christy and Daniel M. Norfolk, VA

I was beginning to lose hope of ever selling my rental property when I teamed up with Sam. From the start he was extremely professional and attentive to my concerns, and he impressed me with his knowledge of the market in my area. After a short time on the market, lots of positive showings, and some creative negotiating, Sam sold my house for a price that I was happy with. His work ethic and integrity are second to none, and I highly recommend him!

Daniel & Christy M. Norfolk, VA

I would recommend anyone in the buyers business to have Debbie as their realtor. Not only she seems committed to her profession, but she displays professional behavior at all times and makes sure that her clients receive the service needed. One of her best qualities besides her knowledge is her availability, you can call Debbie with any questions and she always responds and gives you the best of her advise. Debbie is very patient and helped me found a house in a move in condition with many updates.

Carmen B. Virginia Beach, VA

As first time home buyers, my fiance and I were very excited but very naive about buying a home. Despite this, we feel that we found the perfect house because of the help and support from our realtor. Sam remained in constant communication with us, and he made a point to ensure that we were well informed about each aspect of the process and our options. I really appreciated that he took the time to make sure that we understand what we were doing so that we could make the best decision possible. Sam was selfless and he was willing to meet with us morning, noon, and night to ensure that all of our paperwork was completed in a timely manner. What sets Sam apart is that he is so selfless and he made us feel like we were his only clients. Sam used all of his resources to get us into a home we love, and for that, we will always be thankful.

Zach and Caitie B. Virginia Beach, VA

We absolutely love Debbie! I was pregnant and my fiance and I were trying to buy a home asap. Debbie treated us like family and made sure we found a safe neighborhood and a great home. I would recommend her to anybody.

Amber D. and Shawn R. Virginia Beach, VA

Debbie Woolard helped us with a short sell on our home. The house was on the market for about a month and a half before it was sold! She did a magnificent job with getting our house prepared to be sold. The fact that we were on opposite sides of the country during this process did make things challenging however; Debbie was extremely kind, helpful and very positive every step of the way. There truly wasn’t a question that she couldn’t answer or get the answer to us in a timely manner. If you’re looking for a TRUE professional you will get that in Debbie Woolard. She is definitely the realtor of choice!

Dennis and Jennell C. Suffolk, VA

Debbie Woolard became our agent after our previous agent did very little to help us sell a flip house we had on the market. For six months we had no interest. Debbie became our listing agent and she had multiple offers submitted and then sold the house in a matter of days. She knows how to market and sell a house and we couldn’t be more pleased. Debbie is a true professional that represents her clients honestly and respectfully. She knows her business and takes it seriously in order to provide her clients with a realtor that they can always depend on. I know she will always represent us in future endeavors.

Ski and Andrea Y. Virginia Beach, VA

Debbie Woolard is an excellent Realtor. I have recommended her to several people. Not only is she a wonderful, kind person to be around in the company of, she went beyond her means to make sure that my husband and I found the perfect home. She made our move from California a lot easier. When we were completing paper work, home inspection, or just checking out a home, she even selfishly would take our daughter and walk around, and keep her busy so that we could look at the house, or finish paper work. We keep in touch with Debbie to this day, as she is now a friend. I give her high regards to any family moving, or looking to buy their first home.

Chris and Sarah C. Chesapeake, VA

Debbie was a great realtor. She made the buying process for my house very easy and was able to give me piece of mind that I got the best deal available. It was easy to tell that she not only had knowledge of the realestate market but she continues to improve herself through technology and continued learning in an ever-changing market place. If I purchase another home I will definitely be asking for her assistance.

George B. Virginia Beach, VA

Debbie did a great job showing me a variety of properties that met my search criteria. She was also a great negotiatior on my behalf. The entire process was easy and stress free. Great experience! I always recommend her to any friends looking for a realtor.

Lisa D. Norfolk, VA

We were very happy with our experience when working with Debbie. We would recommend Debbie to anyone needing a realtor. She did an excellent job negotiating on our behalf when buying our new house.

Rousseau and Mimose E. Chesapeake, VA

Debbie managed to sell our house in a terrible housing market. We had several challenges throughout the process and all the way to closing. She handled them perfectly. She was always available and extremely responsive to whatever we needed.

Mike and Tracy N. Suffolk, VA

I can only say positive things about Debbie. She is a true professional! She established a rapport with us and pointed us in the right direction throughout the sale of the house to include the staging of the house as well as all of the legal requirements. I would strongly recommend Debbie if you are interested in a professional and quick sale.

BB and Frances B. Chesapeake, VA

My wife and I were in the market to purchase a house and we met Debbie at a potential property one day. She was so easy to work with and very understanding and knowledgeable about our wants and needs. She was completely and totally committed to finding us the house we would be happy with whether it meant meeting us late at night or canceling her personal plans, she was there whenever we needed her. Since my wife and I have purchased our home Debbie has continued to contact us from time to time to offer any services that we might need. By far the best agent we ever could have hoped for!

Chris and Brooke Y. Virginia Beach, VA

We were moving back to the US from overseas and Debbie was instrumental in helping us buy a house. She listened to our needs and wants, gave us many options and had everything set up for us to choose from when we arrived. Once we chose a house, she helped make the buying process very easy. It doesn’t stop there however, even after completing our business with her, we still keep in contact with her through the events she sets up or the small reminders she sends to her clients. Highly recommended!

Chris and Neisha S. San Diego, CA

Debbie helped me get my house sold in 2 days! She is very professional and she helped me to price my house to maximize exposure and get the best offers! She communicated very well with me and even got me an offer that was over the asking price!

Doug F. Toano, VA

Our experience with Debbie Woolard was excellent and informative. She understood our needs and concerns in looking for our house. She was dilegent in her search for the perfect house for us. We were most happy with the services and personal attention she gave to us.

Joe and Judy D. Virginia Beach, VA

Ms Woolard was very professional in her knowledge of the area, in the pricing of the property, and the necessary steps to get it sold. She was responsive in answering our questions and giving us necessary information to help us understand the process. She is an excellent realtor and I would highly recommend her.

Frank and Joyce F. Williamsburg, VA

Being new to the area Debbie was able to quickly find out the needs of my family and focus our search resulting in superior homes and neighborhoods that fit my family’s needs exactly.

Dustin and Jessica J. Chesapeake, VA

When we started our home-buying process, we knew immediately that Debbie was the realtor for us. This was our first home and we were very apprehensive about the whole process. Debbie though, guided us and walked us through every step of the process. We love the house we’re in and thank Debbie for her knowledge, her willingness to help, and her availability. We will definitely be using her again.

Mike and Megan J. Virginia Beach, VA

We had an excellent experience with Debbie Woolard. It was our first time buying a home and she was there through each step of the process.

Mike and Megan F. Chesapeake, VA

Debbie showed us several homes in the area we selected and assisted with the negotiation, purchase and closing on the property. She expedited the process to meet our travel schedule. Debbie is personable, experienced and knowledgeable; organized and efficient. A pleasure working with someone whose professional skills are at such a high level.

Richard & Yijie D. Virginia Beach, VA

Debbie was a wonderful agent. She helped us out through every step of the process and even after we bought our house she still contacts us to make sure we are doing okay. We would highly recommend her!

Jason and Christina W. Norfolk, VA

Debbie was professional, knowledgeable and personable. She quickly responded to any questions we had and was direct and forthright with the answers. She did not hide anything from us and was always a pleasure to work with. Her credentials and reviews speak for themselves. I would not use anybody but Debbie. I would highly recommend her to anybody who would like to buy and/or sell their property and have a stress free environment in the process.

Shaun and Kim B. Virginia Beach, VA

Mrs. Woolard was extremely helpful in looking for homes in our price range that met our requirements. She always responded to questions and still helps me when I contact her 4 months later. Debbie always met me at the prospective homes and was very easy to work with and understanding. She actually brought us to a house we didnt pick out…and now we live in it. I would recommend Debbie to anyone especially those who are in the military like myself and are unfamiliar with the area.

Giorgio and Ally A. Virginia Beach, VA

Debbie was very eager to find me the “right” home. She definitely made the home buying process very smooth for this first time home buyer!

Becky G. Chesapeake, VA

Debbie was great. She had detail knowledge of the whole Hampton Roads area. When it came to the searching process we did not feel rushed and she worked around our hectic military schedule. She explains every step of the home buying process to you in detail. And her resources are amazing, she is very well known and respected in the real estate community. And with Debbie its not over when you purchase your home she keeps up with you, just in case you need help if you are a first time homeowner, as my wife and I were. I HIGHLY recommend Debbie and I will be returning to her if I every decide to move.” Happy First Time Homeowners!!!!!!

Justin and Valerie B. Portsmouth, VA

Debbie is very professional and knowledgeable and worked extremely hard to sell our house. The house sold in a short amount of time and our selling experience was much better than imagined! I highly recommend using Debbie as your realtor!”

Martin & Desiree L. Chesapeake, VA

As soon as I was notified of returning to US, I went online to find a Realtor. I contacted several but went with Debbie because she responded with professionalism and with courtesy and kept in contact with us over several months. She helped us through each part of the buying process. I had simply sent her our preferences and requirements. Prior to our arrival, she had prepared a list of homes for us to review. Some say I should have taken more time to search but I think we did great on finding a home. We found the right one for our family.

Tom and Jiyoung B. Chesapeake, VA

We purchased our home in 2007 when the housing market was still at a peak. Based upon the appraisal at the time, we entered that home with a lot of equity. We are a military family and after 3 ½ years it was time to relocate. Trying to get a head start, we put the house on the market January 2010. We listed our home with an agent that we thought could market our home and get it sold. After six months of being on the market, there was hardly any activity on the house. I would constantly have to contact that agent to inquire about reducing the price or to get updates. Finally that contract was up and Debbie Woolard was recommended to me by a co-worker, Thank God!

During my first meeting with Debbie, I felt as if I had known her for a long time. She is very warm and caring, in addition to that she was about business. Debbie had made herself knowledgeable about our property, the surrounding area, and our needs as clients. Within weeks of Debbie listing our home, we had more showings than we had during the whole six month period our house was listed with the previous agent. Selling our home was quite a task due to the decline in the housing market and the fact that it was a short sale, but Debbie was up to the challenge. We arrived in Japan about 2 ½ months ago and I am so pleased to say that our house sold recently. Debbie was amazing throughout this whole process, she never gave up, and she got the job done. We greatly appreciate Debbie for all of her dedication and hard work.

Frederick and Lavonna B. Virginia Beach, VA

Debbie Woolard is a wonderful person and a brilliant agent. Debbie helped me get the house of my dreams and made the whole process feel so seamless. Her dedication to her work and clients is truly astonishing. I wish I could keep her forever, but then that would be too selfish of me, thanks Debbie for all that you do!”

Lance R. Virginia Beach, VA

In a time when we did not think we would be able to sell our home, Debbie Woolard proved to be the answer we needed. She not only listed, staged, and marketed our home in record time but was able to sell. We closed within 90 days which included the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. Thank you Debbie for all you have done!”

Scott and Donna C. Virginia Beach, VA

Debbie has been a top rated agent. She has made a stressful buying process a lot easier. She is very caring and has been fantastic to work with!”

Brigitte and Hugh C. Virginia Beach, VA

My wife and I purchased our first home this past summer, thanks in large part to Debbie’s diligent work ethic. She was very professional and added a personal touch by taking the time to get to know us instead of viewing us just as clients. Debbie, we love our new home and want to thank you for all your hard work in helping make our dream come true.”

Topher and Laurie G. Chesapeake, VA

My wife and I recently purchased a new home with the help of Debbie. Her friendly and professional manner made house hunting a pleasure! Thanks to her detailed assessment of what we were looking for, Debbie was able to find us our perfect home in just twelve days. It was so nice to not have to waste our time looking at homes. Her honest and straightforward input allowed us to negotiate a great deal. Her accessibility before, during and after the sale made us feel like we were her most important clients”

Marty and Desiree L. Virginia Beach, VA

Debbie Woolard is a great communicator in regards to buying and selling real estate. As a builder, the reports and information she provides assist me greatly in my decision making process. However, being a great communicator is not only being able to speak and convey thoughts, but also having the ability to listen and understand what someone else is saying. Debbie does both with excellence. ”

Clay S., Virginia Beach, VA

We’re a military family who has moved multiple times; with two young children we decided that we wanted a more permanent home base. We choose Hampton Roads to be that base because of multiple reasons. Then we started searching for a realtor. For us, it was a matter of not only finding a hardworking, honest individual but someone who we could trust to be our eyes and ears when we couldn’t view the houses ourselves, since we were stationed in Rhode Island.”

We initially chose Debbie as our realtor based on reviews on her website. The reviews said she was a hardworking realtor who put her clients first. They were big selling points for us, and the reviews were not wrong. We came down on two different weekends to view houses, and both times Debbie put her personal life on hold, to help us look for houses, at one time even cancelling plans with friends and family to make sure that everything was squared away with the sale of our home. Between the two weekends Debbie previewed homes, took pictures, noted any and all potential problems, and gave us feedback on everything. She even took the time to call (after regular office hours) to walk us through the photos she had taken so we could make an informed decision and decide what to see and what not to see in our limited viewing time. She took us through a lot of houses when we came down, and she was willing to be an earlier riser to get as much done as possible. She was patient with our two small children and their nap times.”

Since the beginning of our long distance relationship she has been very helpful. She listened to us, which is very important; she didn’t push a house, a neighborhood or a school system on us. Debbie let us choose what was important to us, while giving us honest information regarding each area, school, and neighborhood. She was patient regarding our area changes; we changed areas three times, before finally settling on Yorktown. When we finally found our home, she helped us negotiate a fair asking price. She even let us know about a mortgage company that ended up saving us money and beating our current bank rates. She gave great recommendations on contractors. We are just so thrilled to have chosen her and recommend her 100 percent. We can’t thank her enough for everything she has done.”

J. and B. Yorktown, VA

Our children were moving to Virginia Beach and we wanted to find a home nearby, so that we would be close to our grandchildren. My son and daughter in-law worked with Debbie Woolard and highly recommended her. Fortunately for us, we took their advice because our home purchase was quite a challenge.

Debbie helped us locate the perfect home, but the former owners were having financial difficulty and the sale vacillated between a “regular” sale, a short sale, and threats of foreclosure. In the end, due to excellent connections, Debbie was able to quickly arrange house inspections, a mortgage, and a closing that helped the sellers avoid foreclosure and gave us the new home of our dreams. But the service did not end there!

Debbie has continued to help us make connections with contractors, given suggestions on fun activities in the area, and even good local restaurants. My daughter and her husband are hoping to relocate to the Virginia Beach area next summer, and we don’t know where they will be living, but we do know who their realtor will be!
