"When we bought our first apartment in 2013, Debbie stood out to us among the dozens of real estate agents we met while looking at more than 40 apartments. While we lost out on the bid for the apartment Debbie was representing, she was so clear and friendly and smart in her communication with us, that we always remembered her. You know if an agent tells you something you don't want to hear but you like them more afterward, they are special. When we were considering selling our apartment during the pandemic, Debbie was our first call. We were honestly thinking about trying to sell it ourselves, and we asked what she thought. She said that the network and skill an agent brings is invaluable, and you know what? She was absolutely right. This time, we got a close up view of her communication and cool headedness (sometimes we were the ones who needed it!), and we were nothing but impressed. Our apartment, in a pandemic, sold for 100k over ask. And she was a joy to deal with the entire way through. Thank you, Debbie!"
"In the sale of my one-bedroom DUMBO condo, Debbie not only served as my broker, but as an unconditional support system and trusted advisor. Debbie’s knowledge of the market is unparalleled. Her experience combined with her candor, friendliness, understanding and professional toughness makes her the best. Stated differently, she will work and focus solely on getting you the best deal possible. Perhaps most importantly when navigating the NYC real estate market, Debbie is one of the most responsive people I have ever met and her communication is always direct and clear and productive. She is goal oriented and holds your well-being (fiscally and otherwise) paramount. She is unwavering in her commitment and was always happy to answer the hundreds of questions I had — no matter how full her plate was. I could not have imagined working with any other broker when working to sell my condo in the height of the pandemic and Debbie made it manageable and easy and shepherded the entire process. Indeed, even when faced with challenges, Debbie went above and beyond and took steps outside the call of duty. I have already recommended Debbie to several friends and the feedback from them is consistent with my experience. Debbie was an absolute pleasure to work with, pushing forward a fabulous deal expeditiously and I will not hesitate to use her again."
"We're not gonna lie, we took a while to find our house! Debbie never disengaged nor lost her enthusiasm, even through the pandemic. After over a year and a half of serious looking, we almost settled on something that we wouldn't have actually wanted but she didn't let us. Now we are in the home that we wanted all along. She is smart, driven, thorough and never loses sight that she is helping you find your home and an investment for your family... And she's funny."
"I moved to NYC from out of state, so the apartment-hunting process could have been especially daunting. A friend recommended Debbie and I am so grateful. Whereas other brokers promise a lot at the outset, in my experience, only Debbie consistently followed up thoughtfully and delivered on her word in every way. Debbie genuinely listened to what I was seeking and sorted through hundreds of listings to cull a list of top options that fit my budget and interests. She made my apartment search efficient and as pleasant as possible - not an easy achievement in NYC. Debbie is smart, attentive, savvy, and knows the market. She gave me her honest opinions without ever making me feel pressured. Thanks to her, I found a perfect gem that I wouldn’t have found without her. And I had several good options to choose from. I’d recommend Debbie Zolan without hesitation for either rentals or sales. I hope not to move anytime soon, but I’d go to Debbie when the time comes."
"We worked with Deborah for both the sale and purchase of our apartment in Fort Greene, Brooklyn and could not recommend her more highly. Deborah is incredibly knowledgeable about the real estate market in Brooklyn and patiently guided us through every step of both transactions. She is the consummate professional and was always very attentive with all communication. We have worked with other reputable brokers in the past, but Deborah went above and beyond as an agent. On top of all this, she is a wonderful, thoughtful, humorous individual who made an often stressful process fun and seamless."
"We have been working with Debbie for the past 5 years. It started when we purchased our apartment and followed with Debbie helping us rent it out several times. We are extremely happy working with Debbie and it has been a pleasure. Her level of professionalism, competence and responsiveness has always been superb! We expect to continue our relationship and work with Debbie in the future."
"Debbie was an absolute blessing during the entire process of selling our apartment, representing us. She was on top of the game 24/7, answered phone calls at all times and across time zones! Having been an international client of hers, it took quite a bit of trust relying on a real estate agent across the pond. Debbie exceeded my expectations by far!"
