Testimonials

“Debi DiCello was instrumental in finding the perfect home for us. We were new to the US property market when we met her nine months ago. Debi took the time to patiently educate us on the market. We found her to be extremely well informed on San Francisco’s hot market. She was attentive to our feedback so that she understood exactly who we were and what we were looking for. She navigated us through cumbersome procedures, and offered timely and sound advice to help us make the right decisions.

Debi delivers a solid, professional service with warmth and sincerity. The negotiation of our deal required gracious, delicate handling. Debi’s acute understanding of this, matched with her own sensitivity, is what finally secured the deal for us. We are absolutely thrilled with our purchase and grateful to Debi for all her hard work.”

“Debi presented us with a marketing plan that was complete and well thought out. She had several ideas that we had not even considered. For example, she recommended we hire a staging company and hold the inspections prior to listing the home. After the inspections, she recommended some improvements that would really make a difference to the buyer. We listened to all of her ideas and implemented each and every one of them. All of her ideas paid off… literally. We had 8 offers in less than a week and sold for $350,000 OVER the asking price”

“If you have ever had a bad experience with a real estate broker or purchase/sale, working with Debi will change your mind about the entire profession. We could not have asked for more in a realtor representing us for the purchase of our new house. First Debi found us our dream home, and then she resolved every challenge that arose to make it happen for us. She, and her wonderful assistant Tammy, went above and beyond – before, during, and even after our purchase. They are truly full service, and truly a pleasure to work with.”

“You both made the selling process and being on the “Real Estate Market” so painless and easy. What could potentially be a complicated and uncomfortable process of selling one’s home became a delightful breeze with Debi at the helm.

“We came on the market right before Thanksgiving in a transitioning market. Several buyers were circling, but not making offers. Debi’s thoroughness and excellent communication enabled us to make an intelligent business decision when it came time for a price reduction. We lowered the price by 7% and within a week were in contract. If you are looking for a professional to sell your home, I would not hesitate to recommend Debi. She was knowledgeable, had a distinctive marketing plan, and great follow through.”

“I retained the services of Debi after I did research to find the most competent Realtor to sell our family home in Sea Cliff. I identified three Realtors, of which Debi was one, and asked each one to provide me with an opinion about the value of our home and their proposed marketing plan. Then I had a personal meeting with each Realtor. What distinguished Debi were her sincere enthusiasm, her depth of experience, and her professionalism. Debi does what she says she will do without exception. Debi has the depth of experience to sell property in both the up markets and the down markets. She knows her business. She knows the market in the North West part of San Francisco. We sold the house for an excellent price, in a reasonable amount of time.”
