Debra helped us in the sale of a home. She was really good about letting us know what was coming up in every step of the process. She did a virtual staging of the house that was great! She was always available, answered any questions and/or concerns that we had. Debra's assistance made the process of selling our home less confusing and cumbersome. Thank you Debra!

Great to work with, Debra proved instrumental at every step of our recent house sale. From setting expectations to planning to identifying contractors to staging and marketing, Debra answered all of our questions, explained all of our options, and kept us in the loop at all times. Offering a calming voice during an anxious experience, she successfully guided us through the sale. We would have no hesitation recommending Debra to our friends.

Debra did a great job helping my elderly parents move out of their house and sell it. No easy task after 50+ years to clear out the house, stage and make it look nice and find a buy in a matter of a couple of weeks. Best of all, the buyers will start the next generation of young couples with small children growing up in that wonderful house! Thanks, Debra!

A relative passed away and I was responsible for liquidating and distributing the estate. To complicate matters, I live in Indiana so this would have to be accomplished long distance. I interviewed a few real estate agents but chose Debra because she had handled long distance situations before. Boy, did I choose right! There were minor repairs that needed to be done to the house, the belongings needed to be disposed of, painting needed to be done, etc, etc, and she handled all of that as part of her service. The house sold in a very reasonable time, she arranged the closing long distance, and today it was finalized. Do NOT call anyone else! Debra is your choice!

I enlisted Debra to sell my mother's home after she passed away. It was one of the best decisions I made during the process of settling my mother's estate. Three weeks after I signed an agreement with Debra, she had the house painted, repaired, cleaned, staged, and on the market. Two weeks later she presented us with five fine offers. It was probably more complicated than some sales because the house was in probate and I live out of state, but Debra coordinated everything that needed doing without missing a beat. She is friendly, reliable, and a great communicator. There is nothing she could have done better to assure me I was in good hands from start to finish. I highly recommend Debra to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the San Jose/Campbell area.

From start to finish, Debra was exceptional. She listened to all of our needs and help us put together the very best offer. We were confident that Debra researched the comparative market pricing. Debra provided the best service after the offer was accepted by ensuring that every step was covered. We closed our home in less than 30 days. Thanks Debra!

My sister and I could not be any more pleased with the service Debra Schwartz provided in selling our family home. Our father had passed away and we needed a real-estate agent familiar with the intricacies of the probate process from a real-estate perspective, and also an agent who would provide trustworthy guidance through our difficult time.
After interviewing several agents, (including the seasoned veteran agent of our neighborhood), my sister and I asked Debra Schwartz to be our agent. Debra’s professionalism; genuine caring nature; connections and extensive knowledge (particularly with finance and the probate process) impressed us. Debra’s virtuous and honest advice saved my sister and I from making the costly time consuming remodeling plans we intended. Instead Debra provided invaluable counsel as to what repairs and upgrades were actually necessary in marketing our home. The result was 14 offers to buy in 1 weekend, with the highest and best offer being $70k more than me and my sister’s most optimistic price expectation.
If you are considering listing or buying a home, I would HIGHLY recommend Debra. It’s doubtful you’d find a better partner.

It was very important to me to help my Dad sell his home from out of state, yet at the same time I have a lot of demands for my time between my job and my own family. Being able to work with Debra enabled me to help my Dad and keep my attention on things in my own home. She handled so much, and also kept us informed of everything. I'm incredibly grateful that we were able to work with Debra--we couldn't have done it without her!

Debra was incredibly fast, efficient, and thorough while helping me with my brother's estate. I was afraid that living 2,000 miles away from my brother's condo would pose major problems, but Debra and her team handled any and all sticky situations with ease. Her knowledge of the local market and her recommendations on a selling strategy enabled me to receive several offers above asking price! There's no reason to go with anyone else in the Silicon Valley

I had the pleasure of hiring Debra Schwartz to handle the sale of real estate in a probate transaction, and I have to say, she couldn't have done a better job. She was the consummate professional, got a premium price on our transaction, endeared herself to my clients, and exceeded all expectations.

I highly recommend her for your next transaction.

Debra was very helpful during each step of the process to purchase my condo.
She explained the current state of the market, and we viewed many properties to narrow down what I was looking for. Her knowledge, input, and experience was excellent, and I enjoyed working with her.

We sold two properties with Debra. She made the process painless and efficient, flawlessly co-ordinating all of the contractors and vendors needed to make the sales go quickly and smoothly. We are more than pleased with her work and would not hesitate to use her again. I recommend her without reservation.

Debra has helped us by two houses over the past two decades, including our first house. She was good about providing guidance when needed and lots of patience as we worked to find a match between what we wanted and what was available. She has a good sense of the personal and sometimes hidden aspects of the real-estate transaction that help both buyer and seller feel better about making the commitment. She was detail oriented and worked quickly when needing to make an offer the next day. I would recommend Debra for your Real Estate transactions.

I was named executrix of my brother-in-law's estate and met Debra and her assistant Katrice when his condo needed to be sold. Debra and her assistant met me at the property and provided us with all the information we needed for this probate sale. Although the sale seemed like a daunting undertaking, Debra's professionalism provided us with a seamless transaction. In addition to placing the property on the market, Debra provided us with the names of people to remove all the belongings in the unit, paint and re-carpet the unit and have a contractor provide miscellaneous service. What impressed me the most was the constant communication I received throughout the whole transaction. When it was time to review all 4 offers, Debra provided a spreadsheet that made it easier to compare each offer. Once in escrow, I received a calendar listing all the deadlines pertaining to the sale. Debra and Katrice were in constant contact with me. I would definitely recommend Debra to anyone looking to buy or sell their property.

Debra Schwartz recently helped me sell my home in Willow Glen and guided me through the entire process with patience and professionalism. She helped me understand the real estate market that we were selling in and kept me posted about other properties competing with my home for buyer's attention. We sold quickly and both the buyer and I were VERY excited with the outcome.

Due to a unforeseen issue that arose on my part, the transaction almost fell apart but Debra was able to formulate a solution that held the sale together and met my needs as well as those of the buyer.

I cannot say enough about Debra Schwartz, she is an incredible realtor, coach, advisor, and friend!

Debra did a fantastic job getting a loft/condo in Japantown sold for me. It was a very complicated probate sale and she handled all the details and kept me informed every step of the way. It turned out to be a nail-biter - but she was able to pull the deal off and everyone ended up happy, including myself! I would definitely recommend her services to anyone thinking of buying or selling.

Debra Schwartz is amazing!
I was fortunate to meet Debra over 10 years ago. I realized then that she was a professional, trustworthy realtor. I had saved her contact information; so glad I did.
At a difficult time in my life, Debra’s compassionate, patient demeanor helped me decide what to do with my home. When I finally decided to sell, she demonstrated such knowledge and professionalism. Her guidance and recommendations with all the details of selling my home put me at ease. There were many instances when I became overwhelmed. No worries, Debra took care of it.
I truly enjoyed working with Debra. I highly recommend her for your Real Estate needs.

I first met Debra twelve years ago when I bought a townhome and moved into the Campbell area. She was one of my neighbors. She struck me then as being very friendly and sweet. She also seemed very conversent with the area and certainly the complex itself, being both a resident and a Board member.
I recently decided to put my house on the market, so I called Debra to handle the sale. We met a few times and I immediately felt at ease with her approach. She was very professional, patiently guided me through the whole process and was extremely reassuring every step of the way. I never felt pressured. She was very understanding and caring.
Two open houses were held on two consecutive weekends. The house sold in a matter of days, receiving a total of 9 offers. It was very hectic for a little while, with a constant flow of potential buyers.
Debra’s insight, knowledge and expertise all came into play, making the whole experience a very smooth one indeed. She is well supported by a very able team. This is the second house I have sold in my life, and I have to admit that the first sale ‘pales’ in comparison to this one.
I am confident that whether you are a buyer or a seller, Debra will provide you with an invaluable service, and will make what is otherwise a very nerve-racking transition into a very smooth experience. I highly recommend her.

Debra was so amazing to work with! We had been renting our house for over a year while living over 2,000 miles away on the east coast. The thought of trying to sell from so far away was intimidating. But, she made everything so easy for us. She worked with us to get everything ready so fast. Our renter moved out and within 2 weeks we were on the market and a week later the house was sold. I couldn't say enough about Debra both personally and professionally. She was kind, friendly, and extremely hard working. She knew we had a 3 hour time difference and always got back to us promptly regardless of the time of day. We highly recommend Debra Schwartz!

My experiences working with Debra have been extremely positive. It's almost surprising to see the extraordinary concentrated efforts she puts forward along with her always-pleasant and friendly interactions, and then ultimately realize the positive results from her focused work.

Throughout our real estate transaction Debra maintained constant communication insuring all details were addressed in the most timely manner. Everything seemed to progress seamlessly even though significant hurdles manifested themselves in an ugly fashion throughout the process. Her project management and critical thinking skills shined brightly. It's obvious she really knows her profession, she's backed by a very accomplished team, and she's ready to face up to most any problem.

I am so very impressed with Debra's overall integrity and perseverance. I definitely recommend her for anyone seeking the very best realtor.

Debbie is a very thoughtful and intellligent agent with great follow up. It is also nice to work with such a nice person.

When Debra helped me buy my condo, I knew I didn't want to rent any more but I didn't have any idea how to buy a house. Debra didn't just help me find the perfect place, she helped me understand all the parts of the process such that when the right property was in our sights I was a confident buyer. I'm really glad that she was the one I worked with to buy my place.

Happy seller and now excited house hunter
Debra was amazing. I originally met her through a friend that was shortselling her home when the market was slumping. I was considering a shortsale also since the market was so bleak. Debra took the time to talk with me and understand the root of my concerns and long term goals. She helped me arrive at the decision to keep my home another 2 years and ended up being able to sell for a profit! It was so reassuring to have not feel pressured so sell. Debra was truly motivated to help me do what was best for my financial situation regardless of whether it closed a sale that day. It worked out great in the long run and I'll be returning to Debra to start hunting for a new place very soon. Thanks Debra!

Debra is a true leader in every sense of the word. I originally met her as my mentor when I ran my first marathon with Leukemia & Lymphoma society. I've had the pleasure of getting to know her on a more business & personal leve since that. Debra holds herself accountable to impecable follow through & excellance. I've worked with a few of her first home buyer clients, and they raved about her knowledge, service, and results. I'd highly recommend her.
