"…I don’t use terms like outstanding and exceptional lightly to describe someone – but Debbie truly is… I have never been more impressed with the level of service we received from Debbie. She went well beyond my expectations and was able to provide a strategy that all of us felt not only very comfortable with, but highly confident in. Debbie was able to, within a couple of weeks, completely turn our house around and get it ready for sale. This was a massive amount of work in itself because she quickly had to pull in multiple bids from multiple vendors – most of whom she had years of prior experience with. My family was awestruck at the difference she was able to create in such a short amount of time… Beyond her connections and work ethic, Debbie is a warm, intelligent, and practical person that really listened to my concerns and patiently walked me through every scenario I could come up with (and, believe me, there were many). Her ability to market our home and create initial interest before it listed were also signs of a true expert in her craft. Her ability to negotiate and work with multiple personality types was also very impressive. We had many offers on the opening day, which were, true to what she anticipated, over asking price… She’s someone who I deeply respect on both a personal and professional level, and she is a true POWERHOUSE when it comes to her craft. "
- Dave, Santa Clara/San Diego, Seller
"Debbie is truly the “Best of the Best”… Debbie took care of all aspects, from preparing the home, marketing, negotiating, and finalizing the sale. The entire process was made stress free all the while keeping us in the loop of all that was being done and communicating through the whole process. Debbie is very knowledgeable of the Bay Area real estate market and gave us valuable insight and advice of what did and didn’t need to be done before the selling of the home. Debbie was sensitive to our situation, hand-on, personable, and very easy to work with... She is truly one of a kind!"
- Julie, Santa Clara, Seller
"We recently sold our rental property in San Jose with Debbie Sanders. I can't begin to say enough to praise her work ethic! We live out-of-town and Debbie handled everything for us. She did an amazing job with every aspect of the property from start to finish. Her experience and attention to detail was outstanding! She handled all the prep work to get our property ready to sell. She knew exactly the right price point to list the property for achieving our goals. She received 18 offers within a few days of listing the property, it was the best experience. Thank you Debbie for all your help and hard work, you are truly the best there is!"
- Kathy and Butch Michel, Modesto, Seller
"I recently had an amazing experience working with Debbie Sanders who sold my mother’s house after her passing… Debbie handled any and all issues with the house, which has not been updated in years. Debbie always had a resource for any issues that arouse during the inspection. She properly positioned the sale price appropriately and we got so many offers that we were able to get more than the asking price. I can’t say enough how working with Debbie made our lives so much easier what a wonderful experience this was during a sad time in our lives. And all this was done while I was over a thousand miles away. "
- Bob, Washington, Seller
"…Debbie has many years of experience as a realtor, and her professionalism was very evident throughout the selling process giving us valuable advice along the way. She helped us to formulate the best strategy possible for our situation. Once we listed on the MLS, we received 17 offers over the list price in the first week! She was the perfect person for the job dealing with our large family along with a difficult family member. She eloquently worked with this family member to voice their concerns and consider all options to make the best decisions, so everyone was happy in the end. Even better, she is a genuinely nice and honest person to work with…"
- Linda & Dave, Saratoga, Seller
"…From our first meeting with her, we felt comfortable and confident in her preparation, knowledge and recommendations on how to best proceed with the sale of our home. After we jointly agreed on the plan forward, she developed a detailed schedule for the inspections, work to be performed in preparation for marketing, and cost estimates. All the inspections and work performed on our home were coordinated and managed by Debbie, and most impressively, all these items were accomplished on time to the schedule she laid out for us… The majority of our interaction with her was conducted remotely since we moved out of state, but she was in constant communication with us via phone calls, emails and texts, and we were never in the dark about the status or progress of our home sale. Because of her knowledge, recommendations and planning, our home sold quickly and closed in less than one month. Debbie is the best agent we have ever worked with, and we highly recommend her to anyone planning to sell their home. "
- Brian & Michelle, San Jose, Seller
"Debbie Sanders, you're an awesome real estate agent, what can I say, with your fore site and knowledge you helped sell my home in a week! You didn’t let up on sharing what you know and giving me all the help, you could offer me. THANK YOU! ....to my San Jose, Santa Clara, Campbell, Willow Glen, Saratoga, Sunnyvale, Milpitas friends, I highly recommend Debbie if you decide to sell or buy a home in the area! "
- Rita, San Jose, Seller
"It is my pleasure to recommend real estate agent Debbie Sanders. Faced with selling my mother's home, I was referred to Debbie by a trusted friend, and she more than lived up to her competent and easy-to-work-with reputation. Having never sold a house before, I was nervous about the whole process. I need not have worried. Patient, knowledgeable and encouraging, Debbie made the experience positive and successful. At our first meeting, she took great care to explain her sales approach and her thoughts behind it. She provided guidance every step of the way, was always available to answer questions, and kept me up to date on progress. She even made the mountains of post-sale paperwork easy to deal with! Selling a family home can be an emotional roller coaster. I’m glad that Debbie was by my side! "
- Terry, Santa Clara, Seller
As a first-time home buyer in the Bay Area, it was quite a journey to say the least, but the more I worked with Debbie the more I knew that she had my family's best interests in mind… She was thorough when it came to reading disclosures, but also great at making sure that we as buyers knew all the issues we may face. She did an excellent job presenting a professional bid, which I know was a key factor in us being able to buy a house. "
- Greg & Valerie, Santa Clara, Buyer
"My husband and I couldn't be happier with Debbie Sanders as our realtor. She is so knowledgeable in her field as well as personable. The thought of selling our house was not something I was looking forward to doing, but Debbie made it almost effortless… We trusted her advice on what we needed to do to get our house ready to be marketed. It really paid off! She really took care of us and she really cares! "
- Greg & Lynn, Morgan Hill, Seller
"Debbie Sanders is the consummate Real Estate professional…Her confidence and command of the process convinced us to move out of our house of 25 years, even before it was listed, and trek all the way across the country to our new local in New York state…She proactively managed the paperwork process upfront to get buyers comfortable with the house and minimize surprises and issues during the escrow period after the sale. She was also nimble enough to deal with market changes as other properties came on the market around the same time as ours… Debbie’s vast experience handling real estate is key to making the process successful... "
- Mike & Nancy, Morgan Hill, Seller
"Capable, timely, smart, energetic, determined, successful, enthusiastic, attentive, accommodating… Debbie has a list of excellent contractors at her fingertips that would make a home builder drool…Debbie’s expertise and sensitivity in facilitating this will never be forgotten by me or my siblings. She worked with our timeline and strategized with us on what would be the best way to market his home…she had the house on the market within 3 weeks. All landscape, painting, remodeling and staging was done in this short time. Within 3 days of the open house we had accepted an offer and final papers were signed. All of this was done with me living over 150 miles away! Debbie goes beyond the extra mile; she is the best of the best. "
- Peg, Santa Clara, Seller
"Truth be told, our house would not have sold when it did, if Debbie wasn’t our realtor. It was her knowledge of everything about the real estate business that made our sale possible… She seemed to have a contact for everything! From looking for which bank to pick to refinance our mortgage, to who we should call when we watched the market change right before our eyes from a hot seller’s market to a luke-warm buyer’s market, and we felt so fortunate that our house sold for as much as it did, especially during the holidays! This is 100% due to Debbie’s excellent time management skills and her expertise as a realtor.
Debbie’s property management skills when it comes to getting a house move-in ready are unparalleled! She suggested to us that the best way to get “Top Dollar”, was to make our move to Arizona and vacate the house, so that she could have her best contractors come in and make it sparkle like new! Her plan worked, and we were so grateful for all her hard work throughout the entire process. Being out of state when you are dealing with selling your home can be very nerve-wracking, but Debbie made the process run so smoothly! When everything didn’t go our way at first, even with all the work she had done to get the house ready, Debbie helped us stay emotionally detached and then found us just the right buyer!... "
- Chris & Christina, San Jose, Seller
"We had the pleasure of working with Debbie for both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our old house. We had such a smooth experience on both transactions, and it was all due to her industry expertise and willingness to go the extra mile for us....Debbie was extremely attentive to us during the entire process...When we worked with Debbie to purchase our new house, she helped put together a competitive offer extremely fast...Debbie also guided us through the entire process...When selling our old house, Debbie really went above and beyond...She found and scheduled all the vendors... Our house had many offers and it sold over asking within the first week! As first-time sellers, we cannot be more grateful at how easy this process Debbie has made it for us! "
- Eddie & Sophia, Mountain View, Buyer/Seller
" [Debbie’s] help and advice were invaluable to us as we had to make this important decision quickly. We chose a new-construction home as our first choice and Debbie helped us develop our strategy for prioritizing lot selections, and then, best of all, represented us at the lot selection lottery--and we got the plan we hoped for! We're very happy with the location and are very thankful for Debbie helping us discover this home and for being there for the lot selection. She was a delight to work with and we can happily recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking for a high-caliber real estate professional to help them with their home search or sale. "
- Gregory, San Jose, Buyer
"... I was so impressed last year with Debbie’s professionalism, knowledge, and high level of service, that I asked her to assist them again this year...This time, my parents’ search concluded successfully – they closed on a house next to mine, and in significant measure, this success was due to Debbie’s professional handling of negotiations and innumerable details involved in the transaction… These are the attributes that Debbie Sanders brought to bear in representing my parents in the purchase of their new home: Professional competence -- experienced and knowledgeable in real estate; Responsive: Able and willing to provide a timely turnaround to questions or concerns; Punctual and responsible -- delivers on commitments; Ethical: Prioritizes the interests of the client above her own; Patient and sensitive to the individual needs of each client; Business-like and at the same time pleasant to work with; Thorough – does not leave details unattended; Results oriented. "
- L.T., Santa Clara, Buyer
"Working with Debbie as our agent while selling our home of 28 years was absolutely seamless. She helped us with every step and thank goodness. The process can be emotional and overwhelming, especially with all of the paperwork… She was always calm and professional but with an uplifting sense of humor that was a great comfort and put everything into perspective. She has a keen eye to details and was wonderful at telling us how to prepare our home so that potential buyers could see themselves living in the home. She had a great referral list of vendors that helped prepare our home and expedite the process. Debbie is a great and prompt communicator! She went above and beyond our expectations and we were well pleased with the sale price of our home. "
- Bob & Sue, Campbell, Seller
"...We stumbled across Debbie while house hunting; her real estate knowledge coupled with her engaging personality attracted us as buyers... She made us feel like her only clients; although we know that was not the case... Above all, Debbie put in the effort and hard work and had the house flipped and ready to go within a week. The house looked amazing and the right offers came in! She moved quickly and diligently; the process could not have been any easier or smoother...She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again she will be our first choice in real estate agents! "
- The Baqlehs, San Jose, Seller
" [Debbie] was prompt, efficient and in constant communication with us at all times. She was professional and reliable throughout the entire process. She is very knowledgeable about the area and the market and appears to have an excellent working relationship with others in her field. The outcome of our sale was more than we expected; multiple offers, cash for an amount much more than our asking price and escrow closed in a week! We have another rental and when it's time to sell, I wouldn't consider using anybody but Debbie…"
- Anna & Tony, San Jose, Seller
"…Debbie provided the professionalism, sensitivity, patience, and great communication we needed for this challenging transition...Debbie educated us about our options; was an excellent communicator; and prepared and executed an efficient plan for putting our house on the market. It is clear that Debbie is passionate about her job -- she has expert knowledge of the housing market, but also understands the human aspect of selling and purchasing a home. She handled all the details such as the many inspections, repairs, painting, yard cleanup, and staging amazingly quickly and cost-effectively...She is a delight to work with, and I look forward to staying in touch with her as a new friend! "
- Barbara, San Jose, Seller
"Now that the dust has settled I want to express my very great appreciation for Debbie Sanders' support and guidance through the very fast process of selling my condo. Your experience and knowledge, your invaluable referrals to needed resources, your calm assurance, all made this not only an endurable process, but actually pleasurable. I am so grateful for your help. You were my best possible guide on this journey. "
- Gloria Elizabeth, Seller
"I would like to highly recommend Debbie Sanders. Debbie handled the sale of our home from start to finish with close attention to details and with professionalism. Her friendly manner and competence was apparent in all matters. She visited early on to offer suggestions on getting the home ready for sale, and once we were ready, helped with staging to ensure we received the best possible price. Her suggestions showed sensitivity to our financial situation as well as expertise in showing the home in the best possible light. Debbie is a hard worker and we truly appreciated her judgment and knowledge of today’s market. We could not have asked for a smoother sale. "
- Linda K., Seller
"…[Debbie] made the entire process very easy. She explained every step of the way, made recommendations that worked out beautifully, and got us the highest price possible; more than we expected. She knew the area extremely well and understood the needs of buyers. She was highly attentive to all details, returned phone calls, and emails immediately, gave us honest feedback and was available to us at all times. Her years of experience were invaluable in this process."
- Mary Beth, Sunnyvale, Seller
"My family and I found the house of our dreams and sold our prior house while in the loving care of Debbie Sanders... She helped us find a great mortgage broker, get bids for work on the house we were selling, project managed contractors...She took time, explained each step, each process, communicated effectively with my husband and me in a way that worked for each of us. I have never seen anyone work so hard to make sure her customers are taken care of. I am a busy executive who travels quite a bit, so Debbie used technology to make sure I could sign documents even when I was on the road with my customers. Both of our houses closed on time and with very little effort on our part…"
- Dan & Katie, Los Gatos, Buyer/Seller
"We worked with Debbie to sell our house in Santa Clara and she did a fantastic job from day 1 until close of escrow, and even after that. Debbie was full of good advice, knew the right contractors, and was always available to answer any questions we had. We felt we could trust her to do the right thing for us. She was very knowledgeable about the current market situation and the potential buyers, and we were very happy about the outcome of our sale. Debbie is everything you're looking for in a real estate agent, with a great personality. "
- Tony & Beatrice, United Kingdom, Seller
" [Debbie] never pressured me to go higher, though the Sellers countered with a much higher offer and though she knew that I was prepared to spend more if I was so motivated. She wanted to make sure I was comfortable. Once my offer was accepted, she continued to work with my lender and the title company to ensure that everything stayed on-track to meet a tight close schedule of just 3 weeks. On top of that, she took the time to meet with contractors (for upgrades I am planning) on my behalf, so I wouldn’t have to take time off from work. I consider myself a very detailed and thorough person, and I was impressed with Debbie’s attention to detail and follow-thru. She stayed on top of every detail, responded to every query quickly, and kept me informed every step of the way. I'd recommend her for anyone who wants a highly communicative and on-the-ball agent. "
- Marie, San Jose, Buyer
"Debbie Sanders has done an amazing job as our Agent in selling our home. Debbie is very professional, knowledgeable, very responsive, and very helpful. She kept us informed every step of the way, keeping on top of all of the little details – ensuring that selling our home process went as smoothly as possible. She provided a level of professional service beyond our expectations. We have only the highest praise and recommendation for Debbie. "
- Brian & Margie, Campbell, Seller
" [Debbie] has a warm, engaging personality and I knew right away I could trust her… She shows an incredible attention to detail and gave invaluable advice about how to prepare our home for its sale. Debbie has an incredible work ethic--I was often surprised by all the extra effort she gave, everything from meeting with all the inspectors and contractors to picking out plants for our yard. She never hesitated to run an errand or make a phone call if it helped me in any way. After we got into contract, she was even more impressive… I believe she got us the best possible price for our house. Selling a home can be an overwhelming process, but Debbie made it a very enjoyable experience…"
- Debby, Mountain View, Seller
"Debbie listed and sold my home in San Jose while I was living in Tucson AZ. I had my house rented out for almost 2 years and decided to sell and bring my money here to AZ. Debbie handled absolutely everything there, from very professionally and diplomatically giving my tenant notice, to handling all the inspections and any of the work done to prepare my home for the market. I never once had to step foot in California. She had my home in contract in 5 days! Not only was it on a busy street, but it had years of deferred maintenance and Debbie was great at knowing what and where to spend the money to get the house sold! Debbie is great at working with people. She took what could have been a very messy situation with tenants, to having them "thank" her for her help. She also had them moved out in 2 weeks which positioned my timing on the market perfectly. When you hire Debbie you won't be disappointed! She is a high end agent with a high end company that works to bring her clients the best results..."
- Brian, Tucson (AZ), Seller
"Debbie Sanders was extremely understanding and very helpful in our goal of preparing our home for sale yet staying within our budget limits. We decided from the start to put our trust in Debbie's advice on the preparation of our home. We are sure glad that we did because our home sold in 5 days and we had multiple offers, despite a very depressed market. At no time did we ever feel we were left alone wondering what to do next. Debbie was there every step of the way to guide us with expertise, energy and enthusiasm. What more can any homeowner ask for? "
- Bill & Rhonda, Corvallis (MT), Seller
"My experience with Debbie was AMAZING! She was very helpful and found exactly what I was looking for in my price range. Everything was signed, sealed & delivered within a week of us meeting & her looking. Debbie is really on the ball and still to this day if I have questions or need anything she is right there to help me. She was the best and I refer her to all my friends looking to buy...she made my experience in buying my first home fun and not scary!"
- Erin, San Jose, Buyer
"I recently had the pleasure of working with Debbie to sell my house and I must say she is Best Realtor Ever! She not only did the initial market analysis she also actively monitored the market while we were preparing my house for sale, watching for houses to close or go on the market. My house required a lot of work to be ready and she had a network of excellent people in the trades to get everything ready. She was very conscious of cost/benefit, advising spending hundreds rather than thousands on projects to get the house ready for market. Her marketing was also excellent! In a somewhat slow market her efforts helped to generate a huge interest in the property. The open house was a non-stop event with people parking a block away to come see the house. I was also very impressed with the way she handled all the offers and her negotiating skills. "
- John, Santa Clara, Seller
"Reliable, dependable, honest, with integrity and stellar professionalism. When my mother passed away, I knew just where to turn when it came time to sell her home, knowing that I would be well taken care of with my best interest in mind. I had no clue what I was doing and it was such a gift knowing there was someone I could trust to walk me through. Debbie went way above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that everything went smoothly. "
- Jennifer, Santa Clara
"…I was a little bit scared when planning to buy a house. Fortunately, Debbie made the whole process a lot easier. With her profound knowledge on housing market and financial planning, she helped me have a clear vision what type of house I should have at current stage of my life and how I shall handle with it in both short term and long term...Debbie is so patient and always there with me. Finally, we found a home I love deeply, and Debbie's perfect negotiating skill made the deal with a price of my great satisfaction. Moreover, Debbie is a caring person with easy-going character, and I feel like to have been working with one of my family members. Her warm-hearted help and organized manner gave me the sense of security I had wanted, and I know that I am in good hand..."
- Yuankai, Santa Clara, Buyer
"Debbie Sanders was our listing agent and did a great job assisting us in the sale of my mother's home. The home was in a Trust and Debbie was well versed in working with a Trust and assisting the family on the necessary documentation. She worked diligently to help us get the house ready in a timely fashion. She helped organize the removal of personal items and orchestrated all the work to prepare the house for the market. We believe without her knowledge of the market and the advice she gave concerning what the house needed, we would not have had such a fast sale or the price she was able to negotiate. We had multiple offers and sold for over asking. "
- Maureen, San Jose, Seller
