LOCAL LIFE IN MARIN
Deborah raised her son in Marin County where he attended public elementary and Marin Country Day School, so she is very savvy about the excellent school options, youth sports, and family and recreational activities throughout the County.
"Deborah did an outstanding job in all aspects of selling our home. She is very detail-oriented and super responsive and provided us with invaluable insight in preparing our home for sale. Her imagination and creativity made our home much more desirable and throughout the entire process she provided us with excellent advice in every stage of the sales process. Our home sold in eight days [$400,000 over asking] in large part due to her amazing efforts and we couldn't be happier with the results she obtained for us."
- Gary W. Sold in Tiburon
“...She is a font of wisdom with uncommon generosity with what she knows. She also has a sense of humor which can be very helpful. Our recommendation is unconditional.”
“When deciding to sell my home in Sausalito from my current home in Los Angeles, I had to choose a realtor whom I could not meet in person. After careful review, I chose Deborah Cole based on her stellar track record and friendly & professional demeanor over the phone. I could not have picked a better agent. From beginning to end, she was a pleasure to work with and performed true to her reputation. Fortunately, I was able to meet her in person the day we closed, and it felt like I was meeting a dear friend. I could not recommend her more highly!”
—Robert S. Sold in Sausalito
“Deborah’s an elegant, tasteful woman who knows how to be an advocate. She’s deeply knowledgeable about property values in Marin and she can be reassuringly assertive when the time comes. She’s a skillful negotiator, and a caring person, anything but the hard-boiled stereotype we associate w/the realty profession...She is a font of wisdom with uncommon generosity with what she knows. She also has a sense of humor which can be very helpful. Our recommendation is unconditional.”
— Tony L. Purchased in Fairfax
"We chose Deborah from an interview and analysis of her deal flow... Finding a home these days can be pretty easy... but the real work begins when you fall in love with a house and that is when Deborah went to work and I mean all out work. Our purchase was not simple but Deborah made it happen, at speed and demanding reasonable allowances. Time and time again we felt thankful we had Deborah on our side. It worked out great for us and I can tell from her attitude and professionalism, it normally does. I could not recommend Deborah highly enough. She is exceptional at her work and a true professional."
-Duncan L. purchased in Tiburon
