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.
We had a very positive experience with Debbie! We were out of state buyers and she was very accommodating to our unique situation. She really understood what we were looking for in a home. We bought our house without ever seeing it in person. Debbie did a FaceTime tour and was present for the home inspection and was able to describe the home well enough that we felt comfortable buying it without ever seeing it for ourselves. We really trusted her and are glad we did!
We were moving to Virginia form Northern Kentucky and found Debbie Woolard on Dave Ramsey's web site. I sent Debbie a message later in the evening form Ky and she responded immediately. We spoke briefly and set up an initial meeting with Debbie, my wife and I. Once we had arrived in Virginia she took my wife to see several homes a day. Debbie had several showing appointments (5-10) each day and didn't rush or stray from our wants and needs in a home. She also set up a web page which sent us homes for our viewing that was with our criteria. Within in (4) days we were under contract on our DREAM home located in Suffolk VA. As we returned back to KY Debbie continued to work for us until the day we got the keys at the closing. We definitely will use Debbie for any future purchases or sales of homes. We cannot say enough about the Professionalism and kindness that Debbie provided.
