I don’t use terms like outstanding and exceptional lightly to describe someone – but Debbie truly is. I am 50 years old, and in my lifetime, 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. To ensure that I knew I was getting the best value, she also had other vendors come in whom she had no prior experience with, but were highly rated on Yelp, etc. This included many painters, landscapers, haulers, handymen, and inspectors. Debbie negotiated with every vendor, got my approval, and had them go to work almost immediately. Our house in Santa Clara, which had not really been taken care of for decades, went from a fixer-upper to a move-in ready and aesthetically pleasing home. My family was awestruck at the difference she was able to create in such a short amount of time. The before and after pictures are hard to believe.
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 was always accessible and was the best guide I could possibly imagine through this whole process. Debbie is incredibly knowledgeable in all things real estate and we couldn’t be happier with her and her services. I am absolutely confident in looking back that she had the most ideal strategy and was the best person to help us sell our home. 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. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough. "

”Edna helped us get our home in San Jose, CA, and then she helped us sell it down the line. Edna was a super-star agent who got us our lovely little home in an amazing neighborhood in San Jose. We were one of 9 offers competing for our house, but Edna did such an excellent job selling us to the sellers that, even though our offer wasn't the highest bid, we wound up with a really nice little place to call home for 7 years. She knows the valley so well, all the nooks and crannies, and went above and beyond once we'd gotten the house, helping us interview contractors to do some remodeling on the house, gave us advice about the local schools, activities, and organizations. Once we decided to move away and sell our home, Edna was on the job again. She gave us brilliant advice, when it came to fixing up the house, staging, and busted a gut helping us get ready (including giving us some deadlines by which time she wanted things done). We felt that her advice and savvy in the local market really helped us get an incredibly quick sale for a great price. You really couldn't ask for a more professional, thorough, and dogged agent on either side of the selling/buying coin and she's one of the nicest people we know in the area…
- Matthew, San Jose, Buyer/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
"Edna helped us purchase our first home in San Jose. She was a great Realtor throughout the process, and has also continued to be a great friend since then…Edna took the time to take us on tours of multiples homes, showing us homes that met our initial search criteria and then also broadening the search to make sure we found the right home. Edna shared insights about the local neighborhoods, school districts, and key points to consider for each home/condo/townhouse that we visited. To add to this, Edna has a great personality that helps make the daunting first time buyer process much more enjoyable & palatable. From start to finish, Edna was never "pushy" and made sure we were comfortable and fully behind each decision. Edna knows the business, gets the job done, and exceeded our expectations; she even helped arranged inspections/fumigations while we were out on our honeymoon!
- Heindrick, San Jose, Buyer
"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 Reynolds, Washington, Seller
"When my wife and I decided to list our house, it was without hesitation that we chose Edna to be our Realtor. She has more market knowledge and perceptive insights than anyone we’ve ever worked with, and this was our third venture in selling a home. As a couple, we thought we already had a solid plan that would earn us the most lucrative return on our investment. However, by trusting Edna as the consummate professional she is with her 18+ years of experience, her brilliant strategies and advice led to an exceedingly successful Open House with more foot traffic than we could have ever envisioned. Ultimately, the result was multiple offers over asking price including one that was 25% above our list price! Absolutely Amazing Results!! We can hardly express our gratitude enough. Once escrow closed, the reality that placing our trust in the competent hands of a gifted professional like Edna Eng was one of the best business decisions any home-seller could have ever made! "
- Jeff, 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
"Edna was a great partner in finding a home for our family in a very competitive market. She took the time to understand what we were looking for in a home and community, and was extremely organized. She has deep knowledge of the area and suggested neighborhoods that we hadn’t considered and we ended up buying in one of them. When the time came to make offers, Edna was a very strong negotiator and we always felt confident that we made a fair and competitive offer. Edna’s relationships helped us partner with a great mortgage lender and insurance agent, and introduced us to contractors for home repairs. She gave us confidence throughout the buying process, and we thoroughly recommend her to anyone looking for a great realtor who cares about finding the right home for you. "
- Adelaide, Buyer
"…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
"Edna helped us sell our home in Willow Glen. She brings so much and experience to the process, I knew we were always in good hands. From our initial meeting to discuss our priorities, to hammering out a listing price to attract the best buyers, to advising us on how to prep our home to be shown, and then navigating the resulting multiple offers, Edna showed that she is not only a very professional realtor, but also caring and savvy in the psychology behind getting the best deal. We were never left wondering what was next – Edna kept us informed about the current state of the process and what needed to be done next."
- Zack, Willow Glen, 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
"Edna, what can I say except “You Are Amazing”! Thank you for going above & beyond; turning our dream into our reality. And who said, ‘you can’t move mountains”. Well, you did! Well done! Today is out first day in our home. So grateful to be the new caretakers of this little piece of heaven. Many thanks for all your support and hard work. And lastly, thank you for your thoughtful gift. It really is the perfect present. "

They made their schedules adjust as per our needs. They got us an amazing price (highest ever in our neighborhood) and made the entire experience wonderful… They are just Rock Stars at what they do! "

- The Shakir’s, San Jose, 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.

"
- Kuntal & Sinji, San Jose, Buyer
"Twelve years ago, Edna worked with us through the purchase of our first home, and now years fast forward, Edna helped us with the sale of our home…Her personal attention, professionalism, enthusiasm, and constant communication of what to expect from buyers in our price range were keys in getting our home sold quickly. Edna indeed is a knowledgeable, efficient and pleasant person, all extremely important attributes in her profession. Edna knows how to stage and represent a home. She also is very respectful of the effort it takes on the part of a homeowner. She takes the time to thoroughly qualify any prospective buyers to assure the match. This has been the best real estate experience we have ever had! "
- Michael & Jenny, Campbell, Buyer/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!... "

" [Debbie’s] help and advice were invaluable to us as we had to make this important decision quickly.

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.

- Homer & June, Los Gatos, Seller
"... 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.

Even after the home purchase Edna helped us by referring great contractors at excellent rates to get our home ready to move in. Edna's strong work ethics and dedication to her profession is truly remarkable. We could not have asked for a better real estate agent! "
- Raja and Abby, Almaden Valley, 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. "

- Leyla, Los Gatos, Buyer
"...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!

"If you want a partner who is an expert in real estate and marketplace trends, Edna Eng should be your #1 choice. She is forward-looking and a phenomenal planner who anticipates consumers’ behavior to prepare you as a buyer or a seller... we were lucky enough to complete the entire buying and selling process start to finish in 15 days!... She confidently guided us through both processes and pitched in when she needed to assist in moving things along to accommodate a rushed timeframe while paying attention to EVERY detail...And most importantly, she represented us perfectly in both negotiations and took the approach as if she was buying and selling for her own family. Edna is professional but also personal in her business dealings... You’d be lucky to have her represent you in any real estate transaction…"
- Dave & Sally, Los Gatos & Monte Sereno, Buyer/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
"…What attracted us to her was her honesty and willingness to give us advice… Edna worked as a counselor as we dealt with the stresses selling our home. She was very helpful in pointing us in the right direction by making pricing decisions. She would always leave the final decisions to us...We had 5 weeks before closing to find a new home or move into an apartment. At that time we remembered what Edna had said: "my clients always end up where they were meant to be" came to mind...We continued to heed Edna's advice, and visited homes and meet agents even if we didn’t intend on purchasing them... The day I went to pick up the apartment keys I got a call. The agent we had met a few months before had reconnected with Edna and asked if we were still looking… It happened to be directly across from the original home we were interested in... Needless to say we ended up purchasing the home with Edna's help. Edna has many local contacts that helped us with plumbing, flooring, and painting. Following the sale Edna helped manage the home improvement project we set out on. She was there to meet all the contractors and made great suggestions on our projects. Edna went above and beyond what would be expected for a real estate agent. We are very fortunate to have met her at that fateful open house. If Edna ever tells you "all will be as it is meant to be in the end." Trust her. We did and we are living the dream! "
- Greg & Etsuko, Los Gatos, 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
"Edna Eng is the complete professional real estate agent… In addition to being very knowledgeable about the property and the Almaden area she was highly instrumental in pushing our deal through a multiple offer scenario, securing great financing, and providing several excellent contractor references for the pre-move in work that the property required. From painters to electricians to plumbers to pool pros to grounds keepers, Edna’s network ran deep and we were able to leverage these connections to our advantage both in terms of scheduling speed and pricing…"
- Dave & Jean, Almaden Valley, Buyer
"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 recently had the pleasure of working with Edna 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… 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…"
- Clark, Campbell, 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. "

"Edna is one of the most diligent and thorough individuals I have known. Her attention to detail and her tenacity on addressing our checklist with urgency and swiftness is the key in helping us sell our house. She was able to balance numerous components of our home at once from marketing to inspectors to painters; this was the key ingredient and reassurance that things were going to be great. I give Edna my recommendation to helping purchase or sell a home, you can be assured that you will be well taken care no matter what you're in the market for. "
- Yann & Julie, Willow Glen, 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
"Edna is a one in a million realtor. She is committed to her clients, knows the real estate business inside and out, and has a strong work ethic. Edna is a true professional. To say that she went “above and beyond” in our journey from listing our home to moving day is an understatement. My life partner had a significant health event the day after closing. Not only did Edna express genuine concern and checked on Greg during his recovery process but she and her husband spent an entire Saturday helping me pack (now that’s dedication)!... Edna was there every step of the way with her positive attitude and support. Thanks Edna, you are a realtor like no other. "
- Judy & Greg, Campbell, 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
"…[Edna’s] in-depth knowledge of the market, the area, and her overall expertise led us to switch agents and begin working with her. That was probably the best real estate decision we made, as Edna worked tirelessly to find us the home of our dreams. Not only did she go above and beyond our expectations by getting us in houses that weren't even on the market yet, but she successfully negotiated the purchase price of our home to within our budget. Edna was more than responsive to our needs and kept in constant communication throughout the process and was a pleasure to work with. I am extremely grateful for Edna and am reminded of her outstanding work on a daily basis…"
- Gary & Katie, Los Gatos, Buyer
" [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
"Edna, not only your professional, outstanding service I have experienced to the fullest, I also received endless help, accompanied with much understanding, kindness, and love. It was a very unique service I will always treasure. Thank you, you are a marvel in person and your profession reflects that person…"
- Josephine, Los Gatos
"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
"Amy and I cannot say enough good things about our experience using Edna as our agent... She worked incredibly hard...always followed up on her word. Everything was taken care of, from the essentials of home buying to the peripherals like hooking us up with movers, locksmiths, mortgage brokers, etc. Her wealth of experience in the business was obvious, as every base was fully covered. Everything almost got derailed at the last minute due to a mix-up by the party we were buying from. Edna was up late making phone calls and doing what had to be done to finalize everything while we slept, blissfully unaware of the potential catastrophe… She feels it's her job to make her clients as comfortable as possible during an already incredibly stressful event, and she clearly takes that very very seriously. Working with her was a pleasure, and we'd highly recommend her. "
- Cris & Amy, Rose Garden & Willow Glen, Buyer/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
"After talking with [Edna] for 5 minutes, we knew we were done looking. Edna's knowledge of the Silicon Valley housing market is unsurpassed. She’s very energetic and puts in the maximum effort. On our first day of house hunting she mapped out a detailed itinerary that allowed us to see numerous houses in various areas of San Jose. After only a day, we quickly understood not only what our budget could get us in the valley but also fine tune what we wanted. It also enabled her to understand what we wanted and she was then able to direct our searches very specifically so that we were able to see interesting properties in the neighborhoods we liked. She gave us the knowledge we needed to get the best price for our new home. Thanks to Edna, we found a place in a great location that really fits our lifestyle."
- Chris & Esperanza, San Jose, Buyer
"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 Hurd, Tucson, AZ, Seller
"We listed our house with Edna in Mid-April. By the end of April, our house had been sold with 17 offers and for $65k over asking. Edna was the most professional agent we have worked with. She guided us through the whole selling process from start to finish. She was there at every inspection and scheduled all of the repair work so my wife and I did not have to take any time off from work. Edna went the extra mile to make sure we were getting the best possible representation. She refused to represent buyers in the sale of our house which shows great character. She also worked long nights to help us respond to offers in the tight time frames dictated by the real estate contracts. Selling a house is never easy, but Edna made it as painless as possible. We could not have been happier..."
- Luke & Stephanie, San Jose, 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
"Having Edna as my agent is such a great experience. She worked really fast and guided me as a new homeowner with such patience. She explained in details the ups and downs and ins and outs of all of the paperwork that you will have to power through. Not only that, she also put in the extra mile to answer my inane questions about house maintenance after the deal is closed!"
- Wahyudinata, Downtown San Jose, Buyer
"…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
"We chose Edna as our realtor based on her professionalism and sense of customer service, and she didn’t let us down. She carefully reviewed the comparable listings and the market potential of our house. She scheduled all inspections and met with the inspectors so we didn’t have to leave work. She met us at times and places that were convenient for us, and she worked closely with the escrow company. Also, we had a renter involved who reported that Edna was easy to deal with and always accommodating to his schedule. Our house sold in a week with a price higher than listed and with multiple offers."
- Dan & Marie, Almaden Valley, 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
"Edna is hands down the best agent I have ever worked with. She is truly one of the few agents (maybe the only one) who sincerely have the best interest of her clients at heart...Edna was the only one who not only worked towards getting me the best deal & value (despite commission being based on overall sale value), but she's the only agent I've ever had who actually follows through and continues to help after the successful closing of escrow (moving, remodeling, school enrollments, etc...). Here are some additional key differences I noticed between all my past agent and Edna: Overall Knowledge & awareness of the current market: Edna is top notch in this category which is critical to finding the right home. Responsiveness: No one can beat Edna here. She never once missed a phone call or didn't reply to an email within hours. She honestly had me feeling like I was her only client 24/7. Attention to detail:...Edna got us significantly more than listing price which was already set substantially higher than what we paid. Experience and size of network:...Because of the wide and tight network Edna has with both agents and contractors, I was able to seriously get the best deals on buying, selling (Yes, I've sold a home with Edna too!), and remodeling! Quality of work: Edna knows all real-estate docs and contract like the back of her hand...Track record: Numbers speak for themselves; Edna has an impressive track record of successfully representing both buyers and sellers. Follow through to completion and beyond: Again, she's the only agent I've ever had (probably the only one ever) that actually follows through completely even after the close of escrow, helping with remodeling, school details, moving, etc...Lastly, and above ALL else, Edna is just an absolute pleasure to work with. She's got a great sense of humor and the energy to back it up....I honestly rarely make recommendations to friends and family, for anything, mainly due to paranoia of being partially responsible for any undesired outcomes. Edna's one of the very very few recommendations I've made and will continue to make to both friends and family...She's like the Mary Poppins of real-estate agents - She will exceed your every expectation and then some."
- Wilson & Clair, Sunnyvale, Buyer/Seller
"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
"My partner and I recently purchased our first home with Edna Eng. We had the pleasure to work with the most amazing realtor. She made the purchase of our first home a reality. Edna was always available, informative, and keeping our best interests in mind. Edna worked with us through the entire process, we always felt taken care of. Edna made buying a home exciting and decreased our stress with her knowledge and wonderful personality. Edna helped us to find financing that was vital to our home buying process. Edna is an extremely hard working realtor. Even though Edna is incredibly busy, she always found time for our questions and concerns. Edna always knew how to handle any bumps in the road that came along. There aren’t enough words to explain how lucky we feel to have worked with Edna. We feel confident referring our friends and family to Edna Eng. We feel we have found a treasure in Edna and look forward to one day working with her again. "
- Michelle & Melissa, Willow Glen & Palm Springs, Buyer
"…Edna's charisma, genuine curiosity and concern to help us on first introduction in our quest to find a home appealed to us greatly. Not only was Edna extremely knowledgeable of the area we were looking, she quickly ascertained our taste preference and needs. It was as if she read our minds...Edna showed endurance and belief that what we wanted existed and helped us to come to grips with the reality of the market in a deeply sympathetic and supportive manner. Edna showed presidential diplomacy in delivering expectation resetting feedback that was invaluable to our search....We won our first and only bid on a home through Edna's demonstrated experience in real estate, relationship mastery and diplomacy. There were many moments where I wanted to hang it up, and Edna was always there to shine a light on the upside, layout the strategy, and keep us focused on the long game until the deal was done... I can't thank Edna enough for all her effort in making our dream of home ownership a reality in the toughest housing market in the US. My wife and I feel amazingly lucky to have bumped into her that day during the open house. We both feel, had we not met Edna, our situation today might be a bit different. Edna is a professional and talented business woman capable of managing the toughest client relations while at the same time capable of forging bonds of friendship. Edna is more than our realtor now, she has become a family friend, and someone we feel very fortunate to have met and have in our lives. "
- The Jarrett Family, Buyer
"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
"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
