Deborah,

 

We cannot thank you enough for all your help finding our home. We don't feel like we could have made this happen without you. Your attention to detail and knowledge about the market really paid off. You were willing to work all night on our offer and followed up with the seller’s agents after it was submitted. We credit you for having the offer accepted within a few hours! 

We love our new home. Perfect fit for us. Thank you again!

Truly grateful for your help and support during this process!

 

Thank you!

Dear Deborah,

You are amazing! Over the years you have kept your eye out for a property that fit our criteria and sent us various listings in a thoughtful, non-obtrusive way. But you always knew that there was one specific property we really wanted. The second it came on the market, you were there. You tracked us down when we were on spring break and immediately gave us the lay of the land.

We learned that timing is everything in real estate. Thank goodness you already knew this! Your sense of strategy in this tough market was exactly what we needed, and we so appreciated your patience as we worked through our decision from afar. When we did decide to go for it, you were completely prepared. You had stayed late at the office getting everything ready in case, so it took no time at all to get our offer out (and accepted!!). We were very impressed with the professionalism, follow-through, and incredible attention to detail of you and your team.

We highly recommend you to anyone looking to buy in this tough market!

With appreciation,

R&B

Dear Erika and Deborah:

 

George and I have been very happy with your work in representing us in the marketing and selling of our Portola Valley home.

 

We were out of state when we decided to sell, and you took care of everything.

 

Neither of us have ever experienced realtors who work so diligently and efficiently and produced such excellent and quick results.

 

We are happy to recommend you to anyone seeking to sell a property.

 

With appreciation,

I am pleased to say that Deborah was our real estate agent and helped us with the purchase of our first home, in the tough market of Silicon Valley. 

 

At the end of the day, Deb was our advocate. Through her frequent check-ins and updates and thorough offer review process, we always knew we were getting the best from Deb and she was going to fight for us to find our dream home. 

 

There were times that my husband and I wanted to throw in the towel after losing out on several homes, but Deb always demonstrated hustle and tenacity to find us the next best thing. She encouraged us to ask the right questions and pay attention to things you can't always see on paper. 

 

She listened to our concerns and reassured us when we had our doubts. She was comprehensive in her review of paperwork and never missed so much as a dot over the i or cross of the t. She was also very available for us and operated with great flexibility. We had demanding work schedules to accommodate and she made it happen. 

 

We highly recommend Deb to anyone searching for their next dream home and you will not be disappointed!

Deborah and Erika were fantastic to work with! Deborah and Erika Demma spent extra time going through every detail of our home purchase in Portola Valley, helping us negotiate to get the very best price.  They were excellent with timely advice, calm, trustworthy and highly professional.  They even took the extra time to help with the scheduling of meetings with contractors and inspectors. They were absolutely fantastic!

"The real estate market is challenging to say the least. It is a very "hot" market and all transactions are in the sellers favor. Buyers have to be prepared to act quickly with concise guidance from real estate brokers who know the market and can help navigate the complexities that may come up with any real estate transaction. Deborah did an exceptional job for my wife and I to ensure that we were successful in landing our dream home in Woodside, CA. Her knowledge of the local market is second to none and she worked with us to get through every hurdle we had to overcome to ensure we would walk away as owners of our new house.

 

Deborah is not the kind of broker who is purely looking to make a sale. She had our interests at heart from day one and represented us and our needs from start to finish. She was very good at checking in with us on a daily basis to make sure we met all our deadlines as part of the escrow process. Most importantly, Deborah was there to welcome us as friends and neighbors to our new community once we closed escrow and the title was on record. She has continued to help us get acquainted with our new neighbors and help us set up all the necessary items that come with homeownership (i.e. Gardeners, Painters, Utilities, etc). Her guidance and counsel made what is usually a very frustrating process, seem easy and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the Bay Area / Peninsula."

 

Thank you Deborah!

When we began our house hunting early last year, we me Deborah at an open house and was immediately impressed by her open demeanor as well as her deep and insightful knowledge of the premium South Bay real estate market.  We subsequently asked her and her partner, Jim, to assist us with our home search.
 
Deborah and Jim, working as a very coordinated team, discussed our requirements in detail and quickly assembled numerous house viewing trips, at each potential home pointing out both the positive and negative aspects of the property.  We looked at more than ten homes in the area before deciding on our new property and throughout the entire process, Deborah and Jim were very patient and responsive to all of our inquiries.
 
Deborah and Jim were also very helpful in working with both the sellers and the bank to ensure that we were able to close on our chosen property as quickly as possible and was again very helpful in each step of our journey providing us with insightful advice and recommendations.  This was especially appreciated since I spend most of my time overseas and was not readily available for in person meeting, signatures, etc.
 
Overall, we could not have had a better experience working with Deborah and Jim and would be pleased to recommend their services to anyone looking for a premium home in the South Bay.
 
Best regards,

I wanted to personally thank you for all your help over the years and in particular your invaluable assistance in finding and helping guide us through the purchase of our new home.

Deborah and Jim,

Just a quick note to thank you for all the work you both did to sell our home.  It was a long process in a difficult market and your advice and guidance was invaluable!  It's difficult to have your home on the market with a young family and Deborah was incredibly accommodating to our unique needs, making the process so much easier.  During the close, when we had several complications, your pro-activeness in getting us connected with the right contractors quickly, helped keep the sale on track and led to a very smooth transition.

We so appreciate all your support during this very difficult process---looking forward to working with you again when we begin the process of finding a new home!

Best Wishes,

Ali and Katie Ebrahim

Hi Deborah,
 

I wanted to send you a note thanking you for all of the wonderful support you provided Mark and I through the sale of our home and the purchasing our new home in Portola Valley.  The speed of which this all took place was amazing to us and many others.  This could not have been accomplished without your daily management and experience to help guide us through this process.

The vendors that you selected to help prepare our home for sale were all very professional, expedient and efficient.  This enabled us to put our home on the market in record time and then have it sell within six days.  This made the financial burden significantly less then we originally thought it might.

I would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking to purchase a home in the Portola Valley and Woodside areas.   You made the experience a manageable event with a minimum amount of chaos and uncertainty.  Good luck in all your future en devours.

Thanks,

Ruth and Mark

Dear Deborah,

On behalf of my wife and I, I wanted to take a moment to thank you, Jim and Holly for the outstanding, friendly service you provided in helping us to obtain our "end of the rainbow" home in Woodside.  If not for your diligence in continuing to show us opportunities as they came up after we had given up on finding the right property for us that we could afford, we would not have known about the perfect home/property for that we had previously thought was unattainable.  We feel very fortunate to have found the property, and to have been able to purchase it for a price that was better than we had thought possible.

I had not previously worked with agents that operate as a team as you, Jim and Holly do and therefore did not appreciate the benefits to your approach.  You were on top of every detail, every step of the way and I was always able to get a hold of someone immediately throughout the entire process and afterwards as needed.  I was also impressed with your follow up with the smallest details, beyond which we could have expected.  What might have been a complicated and stressful transaction was very simple and painless the process went like clockwork.

It has been a pleasure working with you, Jim and Holly and I would be more than happy to recommend your team to anyone looking for the very best respresentation on either side of a real estate transaction.

Best regards,

GK

Dear Ms. Kehrberg:

The letter concerns my experience with you as one of two real estate agents representing my father's Trust in the sale of his Woodside residence.

You and your partner, Jim McCahon, were recommended to me by my sister who lives in the Bay Area.  She told me she had met you at another property that she was evaluating to get an idea of what my father's residence might be worth in a sale.  She was impressed enough when she evaluated you against other agents she had met that she recommended The Trust hire you and your partner.

Although I have never personally met you or your partner, because I live outside of California, I appreciate the work you did in marketing and showing the property in order to bring us a buyer and complete the sale in a timely fashion.  My impression was that you always acted in a professional manner and represented the property well.  My sister reported to me that you always did what you said you would and went out of your way to help.

Therefore, I thank you for the work you did on behalf of my father's Trust, as represented by my sister and me.

Very truly yours,

Jerome W. Bettman, Jr., M.D.
