Debbie was extremely proactive in contacting us to determine our needs and requirements. Because we were moving into the area from Texas, she suggested meeting face-to-face via FaceTime. This allowed us to "meet" her and just not talk to her on the phone. As a result, my wife and I were able to properly discuss our goals in relocating to the Norfolk area. After our first visit to look at houses in person, Debbie updated our search criteria continually to help us narrow down the "houses to look at" list. Debbie's experience and knowledge in the area where we were looking was invaluable. Debbie's vendor list, title companies, inspectors, mortgage companies, were very good and performed beyond our expectations. Debbie's performance, work ethic, honesty, and caring for us as buyers, is absolutely fantastic. She impressed us so much that she is our #1 Realtor!!! Thanks!!

Debbie and her team smoothly guided me through the maze of details that make up purchasing a home. She was always available to answer my questions. Her professionalism and knowledge of real estate made me feel comfortable. I knew Debbie had my best interests in mind during the entire process.
My wife and I have worked with many Realtors since buying our first home in 1974, and Debbie Woolard is the best. We used her services in both buying and selling a house. On the buying side, we were living in California, but wanted to purchase a retirement house in the Virginia Beach area. Her support for remote buyers was outstanding. She worked with us to understand our desires--low aircraft noise, within so many miles of the beach, etc. The online system she uses sent us daily listings that met our criteria and let us filter those in which we were interested into ones that we were somewhat interested in and others that we were very interested in. After working with us for over a month, my wife and I flew to Virginia and met with Debbie to discuss our top choices and the reasons behind them. She asked us to drive through all those neighborhoods and give her our opinion; some were eliminated simply due to her extensive knowledge of the areas. The next day Debbie had arranged for us to tour the remaining homes, and by the end of the second day, we had settled on a lovely home in Chesapeake that met all our requirements and exceeded our expectations. Debbie recommended an excellent home inspector and referred us to a home closing company. Hal, Debbie’s husband and also a Realtor—with a construction background—was invaluable regarding repair advice. This was one of the smoothest real estate transactions we have ever had -- and we have had quite a few -- and it was all due to Debbie's professionalism and knowledge of the area and various neighborhoods. On the selling side, Debbie was a lifesaver in helping us selling our home when my wife’s unexpected incurable medical condition necessitated our moving closer to our daughter and grandson. Debbie was the true professional in a sale that involved some difficulties that had to be overcome, but that then lead to a successful sale. Her choice of a stager was excellent, so that our lovely home showed beautifully. This is so important in today's market, when most buyers, including my wife and I, start their search on the Internet, before even driving by a potential property. My wife and I cannot say enough good things about Debbie Woolard and her very professional and outstanding service to us both as a buyer and a seller. I highly recommend her for your real estate needs.
Debbie was awesome. She took lots of time to orient us to the area - even to the point of showing us the shopping centers. This was a tremendous help as we aren't from the Virginia Beach area and were very confused. She was patient with us as we searched through a myriad of homes before finding the one that fit us. Her expertise in the real estate arena from just looking for homes to the actual closing was amazing. Her walk-through etiquette is so thorough...we've bought and sold many homes, but she is the best we've had. She definitely knows her stuff and I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone looking to purchase property within the Virginia Beach/Norfolk area.
