Two Thumbs Up !

"We were new to the area having just moved from overseas and were desperately in need of a rental house in a great neighborhood so we could get our son registered in school. Debbie was just superb. She told us about the different neighborhoods, and helped us find a great home to start our new life here. We found her to be highly professional, friendly, knowledgeable and responsive throughout the entire process. Two thumbs up !"

5 Stars *****

"Only giving five stars is the only thing that’s inaccurate about Debbie Padawer. My fiancée and I had been looking for a year and a half for our ideal home and if it wasn’t for the attention to detail, relentlessness of her work ethic and persistence, we wouldn’t have our home today. We are forever thankful to have someone who never has a “down time” in the entire process. There were many times we were close to giving up but Debbie found another and another hopeful listing that kept our faith. It wasn’t easy but Debbie does everything she can to make it as smooth a process as possible. I couldn’t recommend Debbie MORE other than to say you will have zero regrets choosing her to represent you and be so thankful you did when all is said and done. A true bulldog of an agent who fights for her clients until the very end"

A Star

"Debbie is truly a 5-star agent. We purchased our first home with her based on her recommendation of the area as an up-and-coming neighborhood that we could afford. She took the time to thoroughly answer all our questions and even helped answer many important ones that we didn't know to ask. 5 years later we sold that home, again using her expertise and guidance with listing and staging etc. We made a significant profit, which we were then able to use as a down payment for our next house, which she also helped us find. She clearly knows the market and neighborhoods in Westchester very well. She showed incredible patience in showing us a huge number of properties. We found the perfect house for our family thanks to Debbie. I cannot say enough good things about Debbie. We are fortunate to have found her and anyone who works with her will be very lucky and grateful as well !!!"

Exceptional !

"Debbie has the experience, knowledge and integrity to follow through on selling your home fast. It was easy and problem free. With all the realtors out there it can get confusing choosing one. Debbie is a miracle worker. We highly recommend her."

"Debbie amazing to work with. She was prompt in action, very communicative and honest with the selling process and what needed to be done. She was a tremendous assistance in finalizing the closing as we had already moved. Debbie was always prompt to reach on the phone or via email. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and refer Debbie 100%. We selected her due to her knowledge of the area and neighborhood and wouldn't have changed a thing."

Awesome experience

"Debbie helped me find a lovely home near my sister's new home in Rye, and also helped me sell my house. Debbie helped me find and purchase a home that was perfectly suited for me. I couldn't be happier. From showing me a number of houses and reassuring me that she would find me just the right place, she was patient and applied no pressure to make a quick decision. Once she matched me with a home she handled the negotiations, purchase, and closing with such integrity and professionalism, that it was a "no brainer" for me to ask her to handle the sale of my other house. In both cases, she was on top of the details and communicated expectations and next steps. Both transactions progressed very smoothly. I recommend her and her to anyone exploring the possibility of purchasing or selling a home. She will help you make the right decision for you."

Thinks out of the box

"There are no words to describe Debbie's honestly and ethical professionalism. We were working with another agent who failed to sell our home after being on the market for a year. Debbie took over the listing, and we are happy to say, we closed on our house and can now sleep at night. It pays to have a knowledgeable professional at the helm. Thank you again for your expertise, professionalism, and for 'thinking out of the box'. "

True Professional

"Working with Debbie was an amazing experience. Debbie was able to understand exactly what we were looking for in a home within the first five minutes of meeting. Her patients and experience were detrimental in our home selection and purchase. She is very detailed. Very Helpful. Very professional. She made our experience in purchasing our home a breeze!! Professional, knowledgeable and knows how to get the job done!"

Truly an amazing experience, Debbie sold us our new home in Purchase, and then did the impossible by selling our existing home when it wasn't even on the market! What a relief to know we could move to our new house without the worry of carrying two mortgages. Nothing short of BRILLIANT the way she orchestrated our purchase and sale !!!
