I was not sure coming if realtor's are worth the money, but after working with Debbie, I have no question she is worth it!
In purchasing a home, it took a while for us to really figure out what we wanted. Once we figured it out, we made an offer on a home that was nice but needed some work. While they waited the weekend to think about our offer, even though we had an offer in, DEBBIE KEPT HUNTING FOR OUR DREAM HOME AND FOUND A BIGGER AND NICER HOME THAT DIDN'T NEED ANY WORK!! We pulled our previous offer and bought the new one and loved it!
In selling our first home, we interviewed three realtors. She had the highest suggested list price and also the best record of selling at list and quickly. And she did! WE SOLD OUR FIRST HOME AT LIST PRICE THE FIRST WEEKEND! Our home wasn't even on the market for a week.
Our second home, we didn't interview anyone but went with Debbie because she is so awesome. We listed during Covid with three young kids (showing was really hard, to keep things clean). She lined up the showings over a 2 day period and made sure everyone was respectful with what they touched and what was cleaned.
WE WERE UNDER CONTRACT IN LESS THAN 48 HOURS!! and for FULL PRICE!
I couldn't recommend Debbie enough. We have worked with some great realtors over the years, and some not so great. Debbie is one of the best in Virginia Beach!!!read less

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 appointments (5-10) per 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.read less

We were first time home buyers and she explained the process and answered any questions we had. She worked around our schedule because at the time my husband and I were both Active duty. She showed us a total of 3 houses and the third house we looked at was the one for us! She was able to find a home on almost an acre lot (0.97 of an acre) and it was close to the Naval base (approximately 7 minutes)! She was respectful of our budget. We are a military family and received new orders. We contacted Debbie and she put us in touch with a great property manager because we did not want to sell and had plans to return to the area. We have owned the home for almost 5 years and Debbie has gone above and beyond to help us!read less

Even though our home was in good condition and within walking distance of a city-maintained beach -- just 700 steps to the ocean -- it proved to be somewhat difficult to sell. We loved living there, just steps to the ocean. We lived there for 12 years before Ted's work moved him back up to Maryland.
For 5 years, we tried to sell the house with other agents, but to no avail, until we found Debbie, thru a Dave Ramsey website -- in the first call, she encouraged us to look up the statistics about the other realtors we had worked with, on Zillow. We were amazed to find none of them had sold more than 2 or three houses in the last year. Debbie sold over 50 houses last year.
Next, she gave us info about what we needed to do BEFORE she placed our house on the market. For example, she asked us to get the roof inspected and repaired if need be. She said having our own inspections done was a good way to convince a buyer that the price was right. With a new roof complete, Debbie was able to add "New Roof!" to the ad -- another plus.
Debbie found a solid buyer within 45 days! Then she helped us get from contract to closing -- with cheerful yet practical advice at every step.
1. When the Buyer's lenders demanded we remove the entire kitchen from the In-law Suite, she suggested we take out only the appliances, finish the wall, and leave the sink and cabinets, to call it a "craft room." That way the house would still be attractive if the sale fell through. This my husband and son completed in a single day.
2. A few weeks later, when the lender balked again, Debbie called several times and found out the real source of the problem: the Buyer had applied for the loan calling the house a 2-unit building, like a duplex. Debbie assured them it was 1-unit home, and then went above and beyond the call of duty – she met with the Buyer and her Agent to show them through the house personally.
3. At the last minute, it turned out that the Buyer’s Agent did not include the negotiated driveway repair amounts in the amount she submitted to the lender. That meant we were looking at possibly re-submitting the entire loan to the lender, at a higher amount. [The loan had already been submitted twice, due to the other mistake the Buyer's agent made. We were at the 3rd month of a closing that should have been 6 weeks.]
…After thinking about the dilemma, I texted Debbie that we were not sure what to do, but we were willing to fly down there and re-negotiate personally. She called me immediately, and said politely, "What are your thoughts about this?"
I said, "We don't want to have any more delays. I expect the Buyer wants to close quickly too. Is there any way to solve this without re-submitting a new contract to the lender?"
So Debbie replied, "Well, I could find out if the Buyer would be willing to stay with the loan as it is. There could be a way to satisfy the repair amount separately." A few phone calls later, we were back on track. Thanks to Debbie's expertise and calm support, the house went on to close successfully later that day.
A heartfelt thank-you to Debbie and her team.read less

Always there, responds quickly to phone calls and needs as we searched for a home. She was plugged into every community and provided more than enough information. I recommend her to anyone who is "serious" about getting a home. She worked great with my loan agent to make sure they were prepared for closing, so no loose ends when it came time to sign all the documents.read less

We met with her before signing any contracts and were immediately impressed. The initial meeting was free from pressure to sign a contract and made us feel comfortable. Anyone who is familiar with Dave's real estate ELPs knows one of the requirements is a high volume of sales. Even though Debbie sells a lot of homes, she was extremely responsive to all our phone calls, texts, and emails. She impressed us with professionalism and knowledge. If I come across anyone in need of a realtor in Hampton Roads, she will be my one and only recommendation.read less
