Debbie was amazing! I contacted three agents, all endorsed by Dave Ramsey. Debbie was clearly the agent for us as she responds to emails and phone calls quickly. She was extremely efficient showing us homes. Debbie picked us up and gave me a clipboard with all the homes we would see for the day in order. As we got to a new home my husband and I would check out the backyard while Debbie would open the lock box. We would meet inside and either move on to the next property or continue through the home. She quickly learned what we liked, and didn't try to push homes like she was solely interested in the commission. Debbie has snacks and drinks in her car, and she planned our house hunting day perfectly with no wasted time. I really liked that. Once we found the right house she promptly filled out the paperwork and guided us through the negotiation process. While the selling agent we were working with was unprofessional and rude, she handled him and the situation well. Additionally, Debbie is a great resource for recommendations of professionals to get work done on the home. Her preferred home inspector saved us from buying the wrong house! Debbie is kind, prompt, knowledgeable, and a hard worker. She has absolutely earned our business for life. I will recommend everyone in the Hampton Roads area to call Debbie when they need to buy or sell a home. Debbie, in case you read this, Thank you!!!
This is our 2nd time working with Debbie over the last 10 years. This time around we were looking in a specific location in Chesapeake. Debbie showed us numerous home, providing us with each locations details such as schools (re-zoning talk), roads (development plans), power lines, traffic issues, and air traffic noise levels. A great agent with outstanding knowledge of the area.
The only work to describe Mrs. Debbie Woolard is AMAZING! The communication, the knowledge and her honesty was beyond my expectations! I will never use anyone else but Mrs. Debbie Woolard. Thank you for everything!
Great experience as always! We bought and sold this house with Debbie who went above and beyond helping us sell our home while we were living in Japan. Best in the business! We have recommended Debbie to several of our friends who have also had great experiences. If you are looking to buy or sell, you’ve found your Realtor!
Ms. Debbie was incredible throughout the entire home buying process. This was my first home purchase and from day one she educated us on what to expect throughout the process. The initial meeting was incredibly thorough on how our relationship would develop through this process. She took all of our input into consideration and also gave us tips and suggestions before, during, and after viewing homes. Her pointers on things to consider were incredibly valuable. Throughout the process she showed us that she is truly genuine when she says she wants you to find the perfect house. She was incredibly responsive to email and phone calls and very attentive when present for meetings. After finding the home, she was an expert negotiator in getting the issues we saw resolved and getting us into the home. I highly recommend Ms. Debbie Woolard to anyone interested in buying a home. She's the best!
"Debbie did a fantastic job from finding us a home all the way through closing. The key to a successful transaction was her communication. She was always readily available to answer questions and provide guidance. Thanks for staying motivated through the whole process.
With Ms Woodard staying with us for almost 9 mos now, it was time to put her home on the market. Joe and I were flooded with emotions as the realization set in, never easy going through someone else’s belongings, the memories that were made and the love that was shared in her home. The blessing was the home was on the market for only 2 days with 8 offers and a contract signed. Debbie Woolard, realtor, was and is there for us with every step. Thank you for your guidance, support, and being so patient with us during this delicate time. You rock, Debbie Woolard!!
Debbie helped my wife and I find the perfect home for us. She was very patient with us as we visited dozens of homes in a wide range of locations. As we looked at the aesthetics of the home, she would look for issues and was always upfront and honest about problems with a home because she genuinely cared about us finding a good home that fit our needs and price range. Her honesty, diligence, and hard work are three things that made our first home buying experience easier, more comfortable, and gave us confidence that we were working with the best agent in town. Rather than pressuring us to buy quickly, she encouraged us to be thorough and careful in our decision making, but when the perfect home came on the market, she had helped us make a good offer on a fast selling home within 12 hours of us expressing interest in the home. She is very flexible with hours, and even visited homes with us after the January Snowpocalypse of 2018. I would recommend her to any friends buying or selling a home in the Virginia Beach area because there is no doubt in my mind that she is the best agent if not in Virginia then surely in the Hampton Roads area.
Debbie Woolard is the best realtor we have ever worked with. She went above and beyond the call of duty in closing the sale of our residential beach house.
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 lender 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 lender representative that was reviewing the appraisal.
Thanks to Debbie's expertise and calm support, the house went on to close successfully.
Debbie was far more than just our realtor. She was a mentor, educator, and counselor as well. She provided access to so many resources that we used to make our house ready to sell. Beyond her professional mastery, she helped us with our questions and needs as out-of-state landlords, our anxieties as unexpected repair bills and inspection items were discovered, and countless pointers and advice on how to maximize our home's desirability. All of her advice proved to be correct, and I am very sure that we would not have sold our home were it not for Debbie. I give my highest recommendation to use Debbie as your realtor, she was the best realtor we had in 30 years of buying and selling homes.
Debbie Woolard: BLUF: Amazing communicator, Knows VA Neighborhoods, Patient, The person you want in your corner, works with the best, simply all around awesome!
What can I say about Debbie but absolutely AMAZING! If you want someone who puts your priorities first, who is patient, kind, and willing to work around your schedule, then Debbie is the person for you! Even though she had many people she was working with, she always made us feel like we were the only ones she was working with. She was always available when we needed her to be available. Another bonus, She is extremely knowledgeable in the field and the Virginia Neighborhoods. After conveying our interests to her, we would skip some houses we "liked" online because she knew the neighborhood would not be up to par with our liking. She was extremely patient with us. She never tried to "sell" the property to us so we could have frank conversations with her. She becomes your best friend in the whole process. For ex: She points things out to us that as a first-time home buyer we would not look for, she offers insights that only an experienced real estate agent could bring to the table. Lastly, because Debbie has been a real estate agent for so long, she knows the industry and the people that support it very well. When we were looking for home inspectors, she could tell us if the home inspector we picked was legit or not. She is well known throughout the community: I used my friend's dad who was an electrician that we hired to make some repairs on our home and he knew of Debbie Woolard. He could only say positives about her. If you want a smooth, amazing buying or selling process, Debbie Woolard is your Real estate agent!
When you think Real Estate Agent you NEED to think DEBBIE WOOLARD! I promise you will love her- we did!
"Debbie and her team are exactly what we were looking for when we decided it was time to sell our house. She exceeded our expectations from the very start and managed to maintain that high standard of service beyond the sale of our home. Debbie's expertise and genuine concern for us as her clients were evident throughout every step in the process. Her suggestions and guidance, backed by years of experience, played vital roles in securing a full price offer for our house in just a matter of days. She has a keen sense of the market and an unbiased approach. Debbie put us in contact with professionals we needed who share the same level of expertise and whom she trusts. Should you be looking for a real estate professional who will provide you with the highest quality of service and get your desired results, please look no further than Debbie Woolard and her associates. You will be disappointed with anyone else, she's just that great. We will forever be grateful for her and the unbelievable experience she's provided us in selling our home."
Debbie made the home buying experience as stress free as possible. We appreciated her professionalism and presence when interacting with ourselves and other professionals. She always maintained perfect composure even when listing agents failed to do so. Debbie ensured that the overall process was custom tailored to our wants and needs. Even those that we were not aware of at the beginning of the process. Her empathetic nature was very apparent as she constantly went beyond expectations.
We would not hesitate to recommend Debbie's services to someone else or to work with Debbie again in the future.
Debbie was an excellent buyer's agent. We were relocating to the Tidewater area and had very little prior knowledge of the neighborhoods and other concerns such as areas prone to flooding, or high jet noise from the nearby Naval Air Station. Debbie was extremely helpful in guiding us to our eventual new home. Over the course of several weekend trips to the area to look at houses, and after countless viewings, Debbie helped us find the home of our dreams. Throughout the process Debbie was extremely knowledgeable, and always reachable if we had questions during the process. During contract negotiation and settlement, Debbie was a true advocate on our behalf, and brought us to closure in the best circumstances possible. I highly recommend her!
"Debbie is an amazing agent! She helped us purchase our beach home and was our true and loyal advocate throughout the process. Debbie is personable, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. There is nothing negative to say about her!"
"Debbie was awesome! She's knowledgeable and was helpful throughout the home sale and buying process. When I thought there was an issue, Debbie's response was "Oh that's easy. Let me worry about that." She kept my mind at ease and kept me informed concerning any changes. She's detail oriented and knew exactly what it would take to sell my old home and purchase my new one. My home was listed on a Monday and there were 2 contracts by Thursday. Debbie is GREAT at what she does! I highly recommend her!"
Working with Debbie was nothing short of extraordinary. Her knowledge of the area was out of this world. I was buying a home in virginia while living in california. I was referred to her by 2 friends who purchased homes through her so I gave her a call way before my window to buy a home started. She immediately set me up with an account on her site so Ican start viewing homes online and getting together wants and not wants as well as pricing and if homes were in flood zones and all that fun stuff. My wife and I kept deleting home and adding the ones we liked to favorites up until the day my wife left to go view homes for the weekend Debbie was able to set up viewings so that my wife and her just kept going house to house to find the ones we liked. Debbie was constantly positive and never upset that we didn't find the house in the first few. She was so knowledgeable with the purchase of a home she knew things to look for that could eventually be a problem as well as things that could eventually hurt resale value. While my wife was there a home popped up on her site that she and my wife were able to view within the hour and we ended up getting it. She was with me every step on deciding what we wanted to put in on the offer. Once we got accepted she helped me find trusted workers to get a few things that I wanted to get done at a very fair price. I don't know when I'm going to sell my house or buy a new one but I can say without a doubt Debbie will be my first phone call. I highly recommend her.
"I cannot rate Debbie Woolard high enough! She was our seller's agent in both 2015 and 2021. Our first sale with her in '15 sold within two weeks, in a not-so-hot market. Our current home just sold in February in 2 DAYS! With multiple offers over asking price. Debbie is an ultimate pro in every way. She understands the real estate business inside and out, and she does an excellent job of explaining the processes and making sure you feel comfortable. She is also dead-on with pricing a home to sell quickly, yet fairly, and gives very trustworthy advice that we knew we could trust. We felt so comfortable with her from the first meeting, and we knew we could trust her and her team completely to give our listing the attention and priority it deserved. She was always accessible to us and so easy to work with. She and her team are absolutely amazing. If you list with the Woolard Group, you WILL NOT regret it!"
Debbie is professional , she is expert in her field, understands and meet our needs during our house searching. She also has a problem solver mindset. She respond promptly to our querries and concerns to our satisfaction. From the time we met her, we were confident that she will be able to find us the right house, which she did. We are very satisfied customers.
"We loved working with Debbie!!! We were first time home buyers and a military family buying from a far, and she was supportive every step of the way. She was extremely knowledgeable and professional, and invested in finding us the right home, in the right location, within our means. She would send us videos of surrounding neighborhoods, and point out subtle important details when we were unable to look at homes with her. She was our trusted eyes and ears and Debbie did not disappoint! After the buying process, she even connected us with other services making our home move-in ready. We will definitely be using her again when we sell, and will recommend her to our friends!"
"Debbie provided outstanding technical support in the sale of our home. She conducted an extensive comp study and listed the home above our expectations. Additionally, she conducted a thorough walkthrough before the photos. Our house was under contract in 2 days with multiple offers. It was a great experience and she maintained constant communications throughout the entire process. Would highly recommend her talents to anyone looking to sell a home in the HR area"
Debbie was always available and was honest from the start. She did not set unreal expectations, but she did deliver on all of her commitments that she made to us. She helped us sell quickly and made sure all of our issues were handled professionally and promptly. I have never worked with a real estate agent so on top of things. She was the best agent I have ever used.
Debbie Woolard was our Realtor and helped us buy our first home. We decided to interview her based on her online reviews on Zillow. As first time homebuyers, we were looking for somebody with loads of experience and someone who could walk us through the intimidating home buying process.
Along with Debbie, we also interviewed 2 other Top Performing Realtors in the Virginia Beach area. We decided to go with Debbie because her professionalism and efficiency, which were also very evident during the interview.
As we reflect back on our decision to work with Debbie Woolard, we would like to say that she lived up to her very high standards. She was always prompt to respond to us, either by emails, phone calls or text messages. She also provided us with a very personalized service. We did not have to talk or correspond with any Real Estate Assistant or Associate. In fact, we did not meet or see anybody else who worked with her. We dealt with Debbie directly all the time. She was always available to us, even at short notice.
Debbie was always very courteous and accommodating. She adjusted her plans quickly to suit our schedule. She made it a point to be personally present at all Showings. At no point, during the home buying process, did we feel that she was trying to sell us anything or push something on us. She was always very gracious to give us the time and space to make our decisions without making us feel rushed or pressured into making decisions.
When we finally made an offer on a house, she meticulously kept track of all the details before Closing. She kept reminding us of what was due when. She made sure that we did not drop the ball before or during Closing.
Other professionals that were referred to us by Debbie, for things like Home Inspections, Financing, Termite Inspections and Closing, were all just as professional as her. She had done a good job of vetting them, which was one less concern for us.
We would definitely recommend Debbie to all our friends and associates. We are confident that she will help you find the home of your dreams with the same professionalism, efficiency and personalized attention.
Debbie was an absolute pleasure to work with selling our home in a less than ideal year to do so. She was always immediately responsive and expertly professional with all the answers to our questions. She and her team made selling our home a dream (even with having to do everything remotely thanks to Covid). I would, and will, highly recommend her and her team to anyone looking for someone they can trust when it comes to all things real estate. Thank you again Debbie!
Debbie was an absolute joy to work with. This was our first house purchase, and Debbie walked us through every step of the process. Her patience, knowledge, responsiveness, and overall professionalism turned what seemed like a very daunting task into one of relative ease. We would highly recommend her services, and we will definitely use her services again when it is time for us sell/purchase a new home.
Debbie did a great job and delivered on everything she promised. Will not hesitate to use her service again. I highly recommend her. I listed 3 homes with Debbie in 2018 and all 3 were under contract in 30 days or less.
Debbie was great to work with. She found us the home of our dreams, put us in touch with a great mortgage company who worked some magic with a great loan. Debbie and her team assisted us in getting our current house ready for market, provided much needed information on how the get the home ready for market and when we were ready to sell, it could not have gone better. There was an open house on Saturday and Sunday and we had a full price offer that first weekend and asigned contract in five days! Debbie and her team were great on the purchase of our new home and on the sale of our existing. Would not use anyone else!
"Debbie Woolard made the home buying experience a pleasant one. If you want a home in the location that you want to be in I strongly recommend you bring your business to Debbie Woolard. You will be pleased."
I found Debbie Woolard on Dave Ramsey’s website as the top Endorsed Local Provider of realtors in the area. I contacted her and a couple of other agents about a year before I purchased, to begin deciding who I would like to work with when I was ready to buy. We had a great conversation and she kept in touch with me to encourage me through the process of preparing to buy a home. Once I was ready and we were in full swing, she was amazing! She really began to understand what my needs were and my likes/dislikes and had great advice as we toured homes. She has a wealth of knowledge and an incredible ability to make you feel like you are her one and only client, I never felt like I was second place to a more important client!
"If you are looking to buy or sell your home then look no further than Debbie Woolard!!! She was thorough in explaining how Howard Hanna stands apart from other agencies and has proven it. We put my house on the market on March 23rd and had an unbelievable offer by March 25th! I would highly recommend Debbie Woolard for anything involving Real Estate because she has the drive and connections to get it done!"
"Debbie has been amazing during the process of selling my home and looking at new houses to buy. My home sold for more than I thought it ever would because of the advice from Debbie. She is consistently available when needed and has excellent referrals for anything you could need in the home selling/buying process!"
"Debbie has a way of making you feel as if you are her only client! I would describe her as extremely knowledgeable of our area and professional in all aspects of your real estate journey! From beginning our search to closing: great communication and attention to detail!"
"Debbie is truly a realtor without equal! She made sure we understood everything during the process of selling our house, and met or exceeded all of our expectations. She is a must if you are selling your home. Thank you Debbie!"
"We would highly recommend working with Debbie Woolard for all of your real estate needs. She was 100% professional, knowledgeable, straight forward and organized & efficient the entire time we worked with her. She was prompt & very responsive, which was critical in any market, but especially so in the current market. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
"Look no further, you've found your agent. Our experience with Debbie has been exceptional and even after the selling and buying process she delivers a higher touch of service, professionalism, and excellence that is unrivaled. Debbie sold our house in less than 48 hours, well above asking price. She also locked in a deal for our dream home within the same week. Debbie is also a master negotiator which made our entire experience effortless. Debbie also comes with a whole team of experts ranging from highly qualified and rated professionals for inspections, staging, cleaning, contractors, and loans so you are getting an all inclusive package that has worked seamlessly providing us with a worry free experience. Don't waste your time with anyone else. She's the one."
"We loved working with Debbie! We are first time home buyers and she was extremely patient and knowledgeable with all of our questions. We also bought a house from out of state (military family) and she did lots of “virtual” showings for us. We will definitely use her again when we sell and we will recommend her to all of our friends! Thanks Debbie!"
"Debbie went above and beyond for us. Buying a home stateside while being stationed overseas is not easy. She was very responsive to our questions and willing to go look at things for us, record it and then send video to us so we could review it. When we're we able to visit for a few days to start the home buying process, she basically cleared her schedule of all other appointments to help us get things figured out. I will recommend her to anyone who asks us about buying a home." Cody & Tara L, Chesapeake
If you looking for an agent was gonna get the job done and really cares about you, Debbie Woolard is the agent you need. She made the process for us buying a house so easy. She was on top of things, check with the City to make sure certain things were fixed properly and just did a fantastic job. I highly recommend Debbie for anyone. Don't miss out, call Debbie.
We were first-time home buyers and Debbie helped us find a great home within the criteria we were looking for. She is very responsive and got back to all our texts and calls very quickly. She was also very reliable and always provided us with good advice. I would recommend Debbie to anyone looking for a good realtor.
It was the end of January, 2015. I knew I would soon be relocating to Virginia Beach, Va. First, I had to find a residence and could not decide whether it would be an apartment, condo, townhouse or home. I was all over the place with questions? I spent months on the internet, researching information and viewing countless photos.
The more information I gathered the more the realization became: I needed an expert who was knowledgeable in the field of Real Estate. Someone who spoke the Language of Real Estate. And most importantly for me, someone who was very similar with the location, of choice.
I believe in prayer, and prayed that I would be led to such a person.
Debbie Woodlard of William E Wood & Associates is an answered prayer! At our first meeting she asked, what I expected of her? I replied, honesty. She consistently exceeded my expectations. She's a full-time/over-time Realtor. She listens to what is said and what is not said. Debbie put the P-in Professional. All of my questions and concerns were immediately addressed. As a first-time home buyer, I felt very comfortable and assured working with Debbie. She is an A to Z Realtor. For, me that's someone who is with you from beginning to end and then some.
I learned that although purchasing your first home can be very stressful....the Debbie Woodlards of the Real Estate World can make it a very educational and joyful experience!
The only I can start saying is thank God He put us with person so knowledgeable, professional like Debbie Woolard , because we tough this thing of buying house it was like those TV show, first we did the meeting she ask us and explain me a lot of things that we don't even have idea like how much we want to pay, how soon we want to move, or where and area we want to lived (schools system, decibel areas, etc) but Debbie and her team took us steb by step in the entire process and we look around 20 houses until finally we found the house me and wifey fell in love thanks to Debbie we have house with beautiful kitchen and big patio...thank you again
We just moved to Virginia Beach from Washington, D.C. because Kesse got stationed down here. Living in a 500sqft 1 bedroom apartment wasn't working out with a baby, so we finally broke down and decided to buy a home. We found Debbie Woolard online while we were searching homes. She was amazing! The first house we looked at was one that we weren't sure about on paper. We walked inside and completely fell in love! We made an offer that day and less than a month later we are closed on the house. Debbie was so easily accessible whenever we had any questions and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone in the Hampton Roads area!
"After trying multiple realtors we finally found Debbie. She helped us get our home on the market and get it sold within record time! She is one of the best out there."
Debbie Woolard sold our house in 5 days for full price! She was quick to respond when we had questions or concerns. She helped us with everything from staging our home to recommending a repairman. She made selling our home a quick and easy process. We highly recommend her!
Debbie was a complete pro in everything she did during our home buying process. Every time we had a question - she was right there with an answer. She helped us out in finding people to redo the floors & carpet - and even clean the place before we moved in! I would definitely recommend Debbie to be your next realtor.
Chris & Kirsten L., Virginia Beach
Debbie is an AMAZING realtor! Her communication skills are top notch and she is always accessible and responds quickly to any email or call. To put it in perspective, we were stationed in Germany while trying to sell our home in Norfolk, VA. She handled everything in a professional manner and made sure to keep us informed every step of the way. She is a positive, pro-active do-er and gets things done. Trying to sell a home while living overseas can be stressful, but Debbie was always reachable and explained everything and problem sovled when anything came up. She found a buyer quickly and knew exactly what the next steps would be to successfully close. We couldn't have done it without her! I would recommend her to anyone and could only wish that we will find such a dedicated, caring, and professional realtor in our new home state. Thank you, Debbie! You do an amazing job!
Absolute best real estate pro I have worked with! 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.
"We had a great experience working with Debbie. We had a very quick timeline and she sold our house in 3 days! We couldn’t have ask for better. The pictures were amazing. She even had drone footage of our house."
I don't normally write reviews; however, it is my pleasure to write this review about my recent experience with Debbie Woolard. Debbie is an awesome realtor! If you are looking for someone that you can trust to help you navigate through the tedious, stressful, time-consuming but oh so rewarding experience of finding a home, Debbie excels at it. She doesn't try try to put you in a house just to make a sale. She calls your attention to factors that are not obvious to the untrained eye. We found the industry professionals she recommended to be knowledgeable, thorough, and trustworthy. We have purchased several homes in the past and Debbie's expertise, professionalism, and commitment far exceeds any other realtor I've dealt with. You won't be disappointed! Should I sell my home or purchase another one, Debbie will be my first choice.
"Debbie was fantastic to work with! When I found a new job in Virginia and needed to move from Utah, I found three Real Estate Agents that were highly recomended. All of them were average compared to Debbie. After a few days I dropped the other two and stayed with Debbie. She was extremly responsive, and secured us the home that we loved the day it hit the market by giving us detailed descriptions and videos of the home. We never saw the home in person before going under contract and when we saw it in person it was everything we had imagined. it was all possible thanks to Debbie!"
Debbie went above and beyond when listing my house. She came in with expert knowledge in selling a home with a good team that got the job done quick and painless. Debbie walked my through every step keeping me informed from showings to closing the contract. She is very professional with a passion for real estate. Highly recommended to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.
Debbie was a true pleasure to work with. She is familiar with the HR area and was able to help us pinpoint the right area to settle down. When we called, texted or emailed her, we recieved a swift response every time. She was patient and answered any and every question we had. When we found our "Dream Home" she made sure we were the first in the door and we were able to put in an offer within hours. When we began the process of negotiating, she listened and made sure we got what we wanted. We had some hiccups a day or two before closing since our mortgage consultant pretty much had no idea what she was doing, which almost delayed the closing date. Debbie took care of it and we were able to close on time. As first time homebuyers, we are grateful that we were blessed to have such an awesome agent to walk us through and hold our hand during the biggest purchase of our lives. If we ever purchase another home, most likely an investment property, Debbie will be the first person we call. We highly recommend her.
Debbie and her team took exceptional care while working with me through a short sale of my home and locating a rental under very difficult circumstances. I highly recommend her. I plan to work with her when I purchase my next home. I originally found her on line too.
So glad we have had the opportunity to work with Debbie. Makes you feel as if she is not just trying to sell a house, but to find you a home. She is very patient, and very professional. We will be recommending her to everyone, using her if we need to sell a home, and comparing any other realtor we use to her standards.
Debbie helped us look for the perfect home. We looked at over 30 houses and took our time doing so. Not only did Debbie put up with hectic time schedules, she watched our whole family make a decision. Our children were just as much of the decision making process as we were, and Debbie accepted this. She spent time with us in each house, whether it were 2 minutes or 1 hour. Honesty and compassion were Debbie's biggest qualities while helping us a decision. I would fully recommend Debbie to anyone looking for a home. She is fully qualified and smart. I would also add, Debbie is friendly and likable. At the end of the home buying process my four year old son ended up hugging Debbie out of the blue. He was happy and so we were!
"Love Debbie Woolard. Best agent in Hampton Roads!"
Debbie and her team were great to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Hampton Roads area and is willing to go the extra mile! She was very patient with us and calming for us during a very difficult relocation process. We would have been in a bad spot had it not been for Debbie and her entire TEAM of great folks. We were on a very tight budget and short timeframe for my relocation for work. Debbie was able to quickly help us narrow our search parameters and find several properties to fit our needs. This area is a very difficult market for buyers because the homes go on sale are gone within a matter of days. Debbie's knowledge of the area, her support team and internet search engine was critical in allowing us to be able to close the deal quickly on our new home.
We will definitely use her services again in the future and I will be sure to recommend her to any one looking to buy or sell in SE Virginia.
Debbie is extremely patient, knowledgable and hard working! She has helped us look for and find the perfect house, on and off, for over 2 years. Then, when we needed to sell it due to an occupation change, she gave us very practical advise on how to stage it for listings. The photographs and video of our house came out stunning and 4 days after we listed, Debbie hosted an Open House. The day of our Open House, we received 3 offers....that same day! We signed contracts the following day, with our home only bring listed for 4 days! We never even needed to put a sign in our yard or anything. She's amazing and we can't recommend her enough.
"It’s a privilege to recommend Debbie Woolard to you. When I first met Debbie I was most impressed with her work ethic – – I’m pretty sure she gets more done before 9 AM than most people get done in a week. Seriously. She’s super focused and driven to make sure her clients meet their specific needs. If you want a realtor that works for you and truly has your best interest in mind Debbie is the one your looking for. Tirelessly works to get the best possible outcome she can. She has my highest recommendation to anyone selling or buying. I have the greatest respect for her and her work ethic."
My wife and I can't thank Debbie enough for her help and guidance through our house buying process. We recently relocated from San Francisco to Norfolk and Debbie helped us through the buying process from a distance. She also went above and beyond in helping us through the entire buying process. We highly recommend Debbie!
"My husband and I found Debbie through Dave Ramsey. She was an absolute joy to work with! 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!"
Every part of the selling experience with Debbie was great. Whenever we had a question, be it early morning or late at night, we never had to wait for a response. She was very knowledgeable in every aspect of the sale and very pleasent to work with. You can tell she loves her job and will work her butt off until you are 100% satisfied.
In our case, Debbie represented us as the buyer. She was able to show us many homes and when we had narrowed it down to a couple of homes, she was able to help us better analyze what exactly we were looking for. When we decided on the home we wanted, she was able to work out an amazing deal. When things fall through with the appraisal, she was right back to negotiating table working out the best deal possible. Debbie really knows what she's doing and she has a wonderful team that she works with that helped us through the process. We got the house we wanted at a great price. Thank you Debbie Woolard!
I fully enjoyed my home buying experience with Debbie! We were first time home buyers so she was really good about explaining the process and making everything easy to understand (real estate jargon can be tedious). She was super patient and helpful while we searched for homes and she gave us her honest opinion when it was needed. We love the house that we bought and I would recommend her to any person that is looking to buy or sell.
Debbie is a wonderful realtor, from the very start I knew she had my family's best interest in mind. She is extremely knowledgable in all of the neighborhoods around Virginia Beach and worked all hours to find the perfect home for my family. I would highly recommend Debbie. From start to finish she has done everything to make the process of buying a house a pleasurable experience with minimal stress!
Debbie Woolard has been so helpful during the whole process of finding us a home. Whenever I tried to contact her about a house, she would respond immediately and give her honest opinion to make sure it was a safe and comfortable house for my husband and I to live in. She is a very knowledgable woman and I would recommend her as a real estate agent to anyone!
"Debbie was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was always available to answer any questions that we had. Always on time and prompt. Debbie was one stop shopping once we decided on a home. We highly recommend Debbie if your looking for a realtor."
Working with Debbie Woolard & her team of experts was beyond amazing. We are a military family & never imagined we would make an offer on a house without touring it first. Debbie began sending us listings a few months out based on our criteria. When we saw our future home, we knew we had to act quickly. Debbie went above & beyond throughout the entire process ... from giving us an initial Skype tour to setting up the home inspection and Skype review with the inspector to the chocolate shaped key at our closing. Debbie forgets no details. AND ... she just brought us a Christmas ornament with our new address. How thoughtful! Having previously purchased 2 homes with other realtors, I was not looking forward to the hiccups, hassle, and frustrations I thought buying a home would entail. Debbie sure changed all those things. I would buy again & again using her team. They were amazing.
Debbie Woolard was recommended to me by a coworker who sold her house very quickly. She lived up to the recommendation. She is professional, effiicient, nice, and very helpful. It was important to me to sell my house quickly so that I can accept a job out of state. She always communicated with me in a timely manner. I am amazed at the hours she works. She definitely must love what she does because she does it so well. Any time I had a question she responded quickly and with great information that I needed. I highly recommend her for your agent if you want to sell your home. I do not have any complaints about the service she provides. I like someone who is recommended. I do my research. You cannot go wrong with her as your agent. Thank you so much Debbie. I can now move on with my life.
Debbie took countless hours to help me find the perfect home. She made herself readily available and she was very knowledgable. Her knowledge of the Hampton Roads area and real estate as a whole made her standout from every other agent. She takes the time to make sure you feel comfortable and informed in your buying process. I couldn't have asked for a better agent.
As a first time homebuyer I was scared, nervous, and excited to be purchasing my first home. I am originally from California and have only been in Virginia 3 years. Since I did not know the area particularly well, I knew I needed someone I could trust, someone who had my best interest at heart, and someone who wasn’t just trying to sell me the first house I saw. Debbie was that someone. I wanted a realtor who was like my mom, as she is a realtor in California. Patience, trustworthy, and honest are 3 words that best describe this amazing realtor. I know she sells upwards of 50 houses a year but you would never know that by the personal attention she gives you. I felt like I was her only client. Buying my first house was not an easy feat. I seriously could not have done it without her. Every time I was ready to throw in the towel, felt frustrated, or wanted to cry she was there to support me, guide me, and talk me through it. I could not have asked for a better realtor! She became my "realtor mom in VA." If you are looking for a realtor who has your best interests in mind, will be honest with you, and give you personal attention; Debbie is your realtor!
Debbie Woolard went above and beyond in helping our family purchase it's first home. I was stationed overseas at the time with a new wife and infant son and Debbie couldn't have been more helpful. She conducted several Skyped walk-throughs of properties all over VA Beach and Chesapeake. Knowing our family situation she steered us clear of potentially unsafe neighborhoods and even an area which was close to a powerline substation. Because I was not from the area, she also was able to set me up with a great lender who took a lot of the hassle out of the buying process. The best thing I guess I can say is that I was upfront and honest about our maximum price and inquired about several home that were at that level. Ms. Woolard eventually helped us find a home we loved that was $20,000 under that max. I don't know much about real estate, but I understand commissions and that spoke volumes to me.
Debbie was absolutely amazing!! She was very professional, extremely helpful, and very very knowledgeable. As busy as she is, she was always available to us and made sure we got out to see homes as soon as possible once we showed interest in one. I'm convinced that Debbie is THE best in the area (at least). Give her a call!
Debbie was able to show us houses through Skype and this made the process very easy and she was able to show us defects, so when we got down to the house the knew exactly what to expect. As in real estate you never know what is going to happen and our first inspection was not satisfactory and we walked away. Debbie was very clear in our choices and was right there to help us with another search. She was very informative with all the processes. I would recommend Debbie and her team to anyone .
I have dealt with many Realtors over the years, commercial and domestic. She is not your average Realtor. She goes way beyond the call of duty. This being a new house Debbie volunteer to meet with us to choose our selections. It took hours to complete this task. It would have taken another day and major frustration had she not have assisted us. She not only came the first time but even a second day when I had changed my mind on some of the choices. She helped us so much with the colors, making sure they blended together. Also appreciated being about to reach her by text as well as by phone. She was there day and night for us. Thank you Debbie!
Debbie was extremely helpful to me! She always either answers her phone or gets back to me quickly. We ended up buying in an area of town that we wouldn't even have known about if not for her!
5 OUT OF 5 STARS!!!!!!!! Buying a house for the first time can be very intimidating especially without a good realtor. Being an engineer, the one thing I am good at is doing research. After several days of research, my search ended with a call to Debbie Woolard. After reading tons of great reviews about her, I was going to find out if they were accurate or not. During our initial meeting, I found her to be quite personable as she provided me with an informative session about the home buying process. In addition, she helped me better identify what I was looking for in a house as I was one of those individuals who jumped into the house buying scene a little earlier than expected due to rising mortgage rates. Afterwards it was time to start looking! One of the helpful things that Debbie did was set up for me to automatically receive an immediate email alert each time a new home was listed based on my price range and other criteria. That put me a step ahead of others potential buyers in terms of being first to strike. The first house to catch my interest was a short sale which required tons of repairs. Debbie gave me all the sound advice and info I needed in making my decision. I decided not to buy it and can thank Debbie for saving me from a long term headache! Moving on, I couldn’t wait to see what else would show up on the market. After looking at bunch of other listings, I realized that there was a shortage of houses that had the appeal I was looking for exactly (I will admit that I am pickier than most). That meant when one finally showed up, I had to strike fast and effectively. Patience paid off and a beautiful house to my liking was finally listed. I contacted Debbie and we were the first ones to check out the house!! After walking through the house, I knew I had to have it and that others buyers would be all over this house soon too. We put in the first offer only to learn that seller rode his motorcycle to Canada for the weekend after listing his house. Who does that? Anyways, he was impossible to contact and this gave other buyers a chance to put in there offers too. A few other offers were made which worried me greatly but Debbie gave me the advice I needed to beat the competition which included writing a letter to the seller. She pressed the seller’s agent to ensure that once contact with the seller was made that he should consider our offer first. Finally the seller reemerged and we were able to make a deal! But my story doesn’t end quite yet. After a home inspection, several items in the house needed to be repaired which the seller agreed (Debbie will recommend a great home inspector, John). As the day before closing approached, it was time for the final walkthough. The seller stated that all repairs were 100% complete; however, we discovered that he had not been truthful and even one of the repairs that he actually did was done in an amateur fashion. I was worried that the closing date would now have to be moved into the future but Debbie took action and all the proper repairs were completed and the scheduled closing date was still met. Now I have my dream home! At all points of the process, Debbie ensured that I was never left in the dark and always knew what was going on. So, if you are reading this, you’re probably looking for a “good” realtor. Debbie Woolard is the “best” realtor!! In conclusion, all her great reviews are accurate and that’s why I had to write one myself. Thanks for everything Debbie!!
"Debbie went above and beyond in helping us find the perfect home. First time home buyers, living overseas and moving back to the U.S. during a pandemic made things a lot more challenging for us. We are so grateful for Debbie’s help. Debbie is very experienced, trustworthy, knowledgeable; took time to answer all of our questions at all hours of the day and fully guided us and supported us throughout the whole process. She is very well connected and thanks to her we had a move in ready home waiting for us upon arrival."
Upfront, Honest and Dedicated. We looked for our home for nearly six months. Debbie was there every step of the way. She responds promptly and always goes the extra mile. If you are looking for an agent, look no further. Debbie is a true professional.
"The BEST Real Estate Professional I know. She will always negotiate in your best interest and was always available. She knows the values of homes and can find the fair price."
We are a military family that was stationed overseas looking for a house in Virginia. Debbie was highly recommended to us by another military family. She was with us start to finish, from wanting to build a house to actually buying instead. Not only was Debbie very helpful on the phone and email, we used Skype to walk through houses at our convenience (being on different time-zones). We were very greatful for every step of our home buying process, she's not only a real estate agent who's working because its a job, she's there for you personally as we'll. our process wouldn't of been as smooth without her!!
"Debbie helped us buy our first home over 7 years ago, and she just helped us buy our next (and sell the first one)! The quality of service on the purchase AND sale of our home was outstanding. Debbie had some amazing photos taken of our old home to make sure it sold very quickly. We had showings over one weekend with multiple offers, and had accepted an offer by Sunday night. She negotiated with the seller (it was a FSBO) and got the information we needed to make sure we put in the best offer. I would 100% recommend Debbie to anyone! Thanks for helping us once again, Debbie!!"
Outstanding Service in every respect! Made great recommendations on preparing the house, listened to our ideas and helped us implement the best course of action in every case. The result was the house sold in 2 weeks at full price. She also helped us buy our which the result was a superior bargain.
From the first visit, Debbie displayed an excellent knowledge of the market and provided us with many great tips for getting our house ready to be put up for sale. The strategy she employed by listing our house on a Thursday, but not letting it be shown until the weekend open house, proved to be outstanding. In that first weekend we had four offers, selected one, and our house is currently under contract awaiting closing. Also, Debbie and her assistant Tanya were with us every step of the way, keeping us well informed, and walking us through all the procedures required to complete our transaction. I would most strongly recommend Debbie to anyone looking to both buy or sell. She is a true professional and a tireless agent.
"Debbie is an expert in her field! She laid out a plan to sell our home and did everything she said she would do. For a stress free experience selling your home, Debbie and team are the best!"

Malory & Tom W, Virginia BeachDebbie arrived at our house prepared to discuss, not only the current market, but our current situation and her plans for how she would market our house. Debbie was already prepared with pricing for the house and had already done her homework, so, she could justify her decisions with concrete stats.
Debbie also has a number of reviews where she sold a property on the 1st or 2nd day of the listing. Interestingly our property actually sold prior to the listing date and the offer was full price. I believe Debbie is a professional in every aspect of the word and delivers on her promises. I found her, and her assistant, to be very responsive to our calls and needs. Debbie is upbeat and enthusiastic, which is a pre-requisite, in my opinion, in her career. I would hire her now to help us find a new house except that it is in a completely different state.
We found Debbie through the internet, as the agent listed for one of the properties in which we were initially interested. Although we did not pursue that property, we had found our agent! Debbie not only became our agent, but our knowledge base, voice of experience, savvy negotiator, and trusted advisor as well. She earned our trust and has retained it throughout a lengthy process of buying new construction, and she has even somehow managed to make it an enjoyable experience as well. We cannot more highly recommend Debbie Woolard and hope that you will have the opportunity to work with her very soon!
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.
Debbie made us feel at home and was a true professional. Consummate member of a great team, she gave us a personal touch of class. Highly recommended.
Debbie was a great realtor to work with. She took into consideration my budget and needs and was able to find the right house for us. Due to her expertise, the process went very quickly and smoothly.
Amazing communicator, Knows VA Neighborhoods, Patient, The person you want in your corner, works with the best, simply all around awesome! What can I say about Debbie but absolutely AMAZING! If you want someone who puts your priorities first, who is patient, kind, and willing to work around your schedule, then Debbie is the person for you! Even though she had many people she was working with, she always made us feel like we were the only ones she was working with. She was always available when we needed her to be available. Another bonus, She is extremely knowledgeable in the field and the Virginia Neighborhoods. After conveying our interests to her, we would skip some houses we "liked" online because she knew the neighborhood would not be up to par with our liking. She was extremely patient with us. She never tried to "sell" the property to us so we could have frank conversations with her. She becomes your best friend in the whole process. For ex: She points things out to us that as a first-time home buyer we would not look for, she offers insights that only an experienced real estate agent could bring to the table. Lastly, because Debbie has been a real estate agent for so long, she knows the industry and the people that support it very well. When we were looking for home inspectors, she could tell us if the home inspector we picked was legit or not. She is well known throughout the community: I used my friend's dad who was an electrician that we hired to make some repairs on our home and he knew of Debbie Woolard. He could only say positives about her. If you want a smooth, amazing buying or selling process, Debbie Woolard is your Real estate agent! When you think Real Estate Agent you NEED to think DEBBIE WOOLARD! I promise you will love her- we did!
We found Debbie on Dave Ramsey's website, as she was listed as one of his ELPs for the Chesapeake area. 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.
As new residents to the state of Virginia and first time home buyers, we couldn't be more grateful and absolutely THANKFUL to have found Debbie Woolard. We found Debbie while looking at a property that she was showing in the beginning of 2016. My husband was very much in the market for our first home, but I on the other hand, was very hesitant. We met with Debbie and she wasn't pushy (like I had believe realtors could be) at all! She reassured us that the journey to buying a home would be as simple as we wanted to make it and that she would be with us every step of the way. And she very much was. Shortly after our first meeting, we got the home buying process started. Now when I say "process", with Debbie it was more like a smooth journey down a scenic highway; it didn't feel like a process at all! Debbie was available for us at the drop of a dime, she knows the entire South Hampton Roads area like the back of her hand, and she made some great recommendations that led to us buying our first home in Chesapeake. As first time home buyers, we were worried about how stressful everyone says home buying can be, but with Debbie, she had our very best interest at heart though out and in all honesty, I can say we were never the least bit worried. We will always use Debbie for all of our buying and selling needs for as long as she's in business... and maybe, if we can convince her, even after that. Incredibly Happy Home Owners in Chesapeake, VA.
My husband and I felt lost trying to sale our first home. We had no idea where to start. Debbie was referred to us by one of our neighbors, whom she assisted in the quick sale of his home. Debbie met with us on a Saturday afternoon and I immediately felt secure. Debbie is the "BEST". We took her advice...made the necessary changes and our house sold within a week of it being listed. She made this whole process painless. I would highly recommend Debbie Woolard. She is a pro, easy to work with, and we were able to reach her anytime we needed to.
Debbie was the best choice we could have made for helping us sell our house. Every detail in listing the home is so well thought out, and as a result we had an offer almost instantly. Debbie was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and always responded quickly to any questions or concerns.
"Very professional, explained all the details and always answered every question thoroughly, didn't rush me to make a purchase or look at houses And always had houses that met my description of what I wanted to see. "
I worked with Debbie on both the buying and eventual selling of my home. The buying process went expediently fast. I had heard nothing but horror stories about buying homes and was nervous about the process. Debbie made it very easy, explained the entire process, and did great negotiation with the selling agent to give us the best pricing and options available. I was amazed when we walked in to the closing, signed paperwork and received the keys. There was no friction at all in the process. In the selling process, Debbie put in extra work for us in marketing and processing all facets of the procedure. She is extremely knowledgeable of the locations and market trends, and it helps to make the processes go smooth and quickly. Debbie has connections all over town for repairmen, inspectors, stagers, etc. and each and every one of them I used were professional, efficient, and affordable. I never once thought Debbie had her own interests ahead of mine in either process and was available at any time I had a question or a need. I contacted Debbie about selling my home in the first week of January. We closed on the sale of the home in the first week of March, with the final sale price being more than 10K above what we listed it. After staging the home in the first week, Debbie held an open house along with a Zillow listing. That weekend, the Zillow listing had over 4000 views and 300 people requesting further information about the home, and the open house attracted several offers, one of which ended up being the final buyer. Having moved away from the Hampton Roads area, I will definitely miss having Debbie around when I begin to buy my new home later this spring. I whole-heartedly recommend her, and you will experience top class professionalism if you choose to work with her with your home.
Debbie is an incredible realtor. She went above and beyond to help us find an amazing home. We looked at multiple homes, and she pointed out very important concerns with some of the homes we looked at. This ultimately got us to by far the best house we had seen. Even after the purchase of our home she has been an immensely valuable contact as well. I plan on requesting Debbie as our realtor in the future for sure.
Debbie was absolutely amazing. Very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire home buying process. You won’t find a better realtor. Her dedication to ensure my satisfaction was top notch.
Debbie is the absolute best to work with. Always timely. Always there to answer a question. And if there is something she can't immediately answer she WILL find out and provide that answer in a prompt manner. Quick to return calls. Quick to answer emails. Overall made my home buying process completely painless.
"Debbie Woolard is an excellent realtor who gives 120% effort to make your experience obtainable. As a first time buyer, I had reservations about the whole process, but Debbie Woolard and staff worked effortlessly to make my dreams come true. I highly recommend her services to EVERYONE. She is definitely a WINNER."
A consummate professional who will guide you to the home you desire!! Debbie and her team worked tirelessly finding us a home that fit our demanding criteria while we were stationed overseas with little time/opportunity to view homes locally. Within a few short weeks, Debbie assisted us through the processes of narrowing our criteria while ensuring our needs were fully met. Her knowledge of the local community and network of experienced, local professionals in banking, title, and inspections is unrivaled and ensured that we were comfortable throughout the sales process. A wonderful experience and our family is now enjoying a beautiful home in the right neighborhood with fantastic schools and at the best possible price point. Thank you, Debbie!!
"We had our home listed with another agent for over 5 months and were not able to sell it. We switched over to Debbie and she provided some staging and marketing recommendations. The home was relisted on the market and sold in 10 days. We were very pleased with her service and real estate knowledge. We would highly recommend her."
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.
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!
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.
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 Woolard, has been an amazing realtor. She was dedicated and relentless in her efforts to assist us in finding our future home and with selling our old home.
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.
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!!
Harvey and Sue H., Norfolk, VA
"We have used Debbie Woolard for both our past home selling and buying. She has been very professional, a great negotiator, and easily accessible each step of the way. Would recommend her to anyone!"
Debbie was great to work with on the sale of my father's home. She kept us abreast of any issues and handled contractors needed to renovate and repair inspection issues with the house. She was able to get the house ready in a very timely manner for it to go on sale during prime time. She provided guidance on how to sell it quickly and at top dollar. We received two bids the first weekend and the house was purchased by one of the offers at our list price. It was a real pleasure working with Debbie!
My husband and I knew our home buying experience would be difficult due to past financial problems. However, Debbie Woolard went above and beyond to help us attain our dream of owning our own home! Her expertise in the area and negotiation allowed us to see our dream become a reality by the time our year lease was up! We can’t thank her or her team enough!
Debbie is the best realtor I've ever worked with. She is knowledgable, fast with responses, and plans every last detail perfectly. Working with her to buy a home long distance has been possible only because of Debbie. She went to the properties that we requested, and she took detailed videos, photos, and even measurements for us. Once we found the right home she navigated the paperwork process making it as easy as possible on us. We love the house, but should we need to sell it in the future, we will absolutely call Debbie. Thank you Debbie! I will recommend you to anyone in Hampton Roads needing a top notch realtor.
"We loved working with Debbie! We our first time home buyers and she was extremely patient and knowledgeable with all of our questions. We also bought a house from out of state ( military family) and she did lots of “virtual” showings for us. We will definitely use her again when we sell and we will recommend her to all of our friends! Thanks Debbie!"
Debbie was fantastic in the entire process of listing and selling our home. She was attentive and very responsive, providing advice and contacts for all phases of the process from Remodeling, Listing Prices, Negotiations, and the entire Selling process. We received an offer above asking price within 4 hours of listing the home with Debbie and completed the closing on the home 6 weeks later.
Working w/ Debbie W. was a refreshing & profitable experience. She was well-connected to broad spectrum of service- & product-providers. This helped keep things moving, inside & out as our house was made ready to go on the market. We appreciated her responsiveness & knew we could count on reaching her when needed.
We were lucky enough to work with Debbie during our buying and selling process. We had bought a couple of properties before, but had yet to sell. Debbie was knowledgeable and patient as she walked us through the process. She had a very strong understanding of the current market, as well as how to get the most out of our property. After being on the market for less than a week, we received two offers and closed on the sale of our home in under 1 month. On the other side of the coin, Debbie was great to work with in trying to find our new home. We knew we were trying to find a diamond in the rough, but she was very patient and willing to hear us out. In the end, we couldn't have been happier with the choice of agents. Debbie will be our agent for any future needs going forward.
"Debbie was exceptional to work with. She was conscientious in being attentive to our particular requirements in our next house. She was aggressive then in identifying a number of properties that met our needs. Ultimately, she found us precisely the right property and shepherded us through the process of making an offer, resolving issues that arose throughout the process between acceptance of our offer and closing, and ultimately seeing us close according to a fairly disciplined timeline. Debbie was easy to reach whenever we needed anything and routinely provided us with all of the information we requested, particularly when issues arose that required her to diligently pursue the answers we sought in order to make the process proceed as smoothly as possible over even the most minor hurdle. She has our most heartfelt thanks for her assistance and our most positive recommendation regarding engaging her when you are considering a move to the Norfolk/Virginia Beach/Chesapeake area, or anywhere in the surrounding vicinity."
"In Summer 2017, Debbie helped us buy our house in Virginia Beach, while we were all the way in California (we are a military family). She was extremely thorough with her video tours, attention to detail (noting things like traffic sounds that would be louder in winter when trees had fewer leaves, squishy ground after rains, etc), and gave personal recommendations as if we were her children and not just "customers." I appreciated her thoughtfulness and felt she was a safe and trustworthy person, in addition to being a professional and organized Real Estate Professional. We were first-time home buyers and she walked us through every step, making the process much less overwhelming and "scary." When it was time for us to sell, in Summer 2020, I got in touch with Debbie right away. Her organization and streamlined methods made the entire process easy for us. What could have been extremely stressful, selling our house with 3 small children during a Pandemic, was quick and simple. Our house was under contract for our asking price 2 days after listing. We highly recommend Debbie whether you are buying or selling a home in Hampton Roads."
"Wow, just wow!! My wife and I were first time homebuyers and incredibly apprehensive about the process. Until we met Debbie... She is the consummate professional and I’ve honestly never worked with someone with the attention to detail and follow through that she has. I don’t know how she does it all but she manages to make it look easy. We NEVER felt pushed in one direction but always felt like our best interest was placed first. She painstakingly went from house to house to search for a new home for a very picky couple. Her input and insight helped us find our dream despite a global pandemic and being separated by thousands of miles. I would recommend Debbie again and again for any realtor needs. If I were to sell my home, she would be my first call. I am so thankful this realtor, oozing with integrity and just pure sound work ethic, was placed into our lives. She is the realtor that sets the standard and I could truly go on and on. SIMPLY THE BEST."
"Debbie is an excellent realtor. She is very responsive and answered all our questions. She is very knowledgeable and helped us sell our house quickly at a price higher than we expected. We can't recommend her enough."
"My husband is in the military so we got our home through a VA loan. We were working with an agent through Navy Federal, we had no idea where to start. The agent we got put with did not give us any information we needed for buying a house. She took us to houses that did not meet our criteria, and was way out of our price range. So, I decided to start randomly looking online for houses. We saw one that interested us and put in our contact info to go view the place. Not even five minutes later, we get a call from Howard Hannah. Debbie Woolard got assigned to us randomly and asked us what/where/how much/needs/wants and just about everything she needed to know to help us in any way possible. We didn't like the first house so she took us to her company building to learn about buying a house in an informative video. She then proceeded with a stack of paperwork that told us all about what we needed to know. She made us feel welcomed and comfortable. So, we decided to look over houses in the online portal that she walked us through. She made it so easy for us to find EXACTLY what we wanted. We went home that night and went through about 200 houses and choose which ones we wanted to view. That night she was able to schedule a viewing for the next day. We saw a couple houses with her. One time she was helping other people so her husband whom she works with took her place for the day. It was nice that she had a backup in case she needed to be helping other customers. It only took THREE days to find our home! I was blown away that she could work her magic that fast. She treated us like family and made it easy to work with her. She answered whenever we had a question (which was a lot). The inspector she had for us was very thorough with the inspection. He got back to us right away. She spoke with the previous owners of the house and inspector to keep things going smoothly and did any paperwork that needed to be done. We even got our house 5,000 under the asking price and had some requests that got filled thanks to Debbie. The day of closing went smoothly and quickly. Originally, my husband was going to be there for closing but last minute had to leave with his ship. Debbie informed me that I needed power of attorney and how to get it. She made sure I had all the paperwork I needed for day of close. Overall, we we're pleased to work with her. If you want someone who can get the job done to the best of your needs, she's your gal!! She's a true professional and a genuinely nice person. Her hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off. We have our dream home, and she made that possible for us. Thank you, Debbie!"
"Debbie was amazing! We were first time home buyers and she made the entire process smooth for us. We were so fortunate to find Debbie and she helped us find the perfect home in a great neighborhood for a great price. Debbie always returned our texts and calls right away and was available to show homes in short notice. We really appreciated her local knowledge and her honesty in pointing the pros and cons of the houses we viewed. We highly recommend Debbie to anyone looking for a new home. Thank you Debbie for such a great experience!"
"Debbie is a true professional and was a pleasure to work with. In 2009, when we purchased our home, Debbie guided us through the process flawlessly. She was the natural call when we decided to sell the home. She guided us through the entire process and it was a breeze, even though my wife and I were living in Florida. She arranged everything from necessary repairs and upgrades to ensuring paperwork was accurate and deadlines were met. Debbie and her team did a remarkable job and I could not recommend her more. From first time Home buyer to first time home seller, she ensured the professional relationship remained intact. Thank you!!"
"Debbie is prompt, knowledgeable, and great at what she does. She cares about the little details that help sell homes. As a result, our home sold quickly and for the price we wanted. We are thankful we found her."
"I have worked with Debbie to purchase a home once and to sell twice. She was INCREDIBLE!!! I would use her again if I didn't move out of town! I was not sure coming into this 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 awhile 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!!!"
"Debbie was far more than just our realtor. She was a mentor, educator, and counselor as well. She provided access to so many resources that we used to make our house ready to sell. Beyond her professional mastery, she helped us with our questions and needs as out-of-state landlords, our anxieties as unexpected repair bills and inspection items were discovered, and countless pointers and advice on how to maximize our home's desirability. All of her advice proved to be correct, and I am very sure that we would not have sold our home were it not for Debbie. I give my highest recommendation to use Debbie as your realtor, she was the best realtor we had in 30 years of buying and selling homes."
Debbie has always been amazing to us! She was so helpful when helping us purchase our first home and now she was so helpful with helping us sell our first home! We had to do everything long distance which I was very worried about but she made it the easiest process. Our house sold quickly with all her recommendations which was exactly what we needed. She is a wonderful realtor!"
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.

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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!!!!!!
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!!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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 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.
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
