To whom it may concern,
My wife, and I interviewed a few Realtors before making our decision on who we felt most comfortable working with. We were not only just looking for someone we felt comfortable with we were also looking for someone who understood today'scomplex market, had good experience, and a proven track record.
Debbie fit the bill in every way. We had a good comfort level with Debbie as she really seemed to consider our needs, and feeling every step of the way. She worked with her team to stage the home; I did not think it was needed it, but once completed the home looked like a model. This along with strong marketing got us multiple bids ending in the price we were looking for.
Home sales do not always go as planed, and even though there were bumps along the way Debbie'sexperience prevailed. She was able to work through a few issues we had efficiently, and professionally helping us to close in a timely manner.
Debbie did it again,”With multiple offers, Debbie Giordano sold our home within five days significantly above the asking price. We interviewed five of the best selling realtors in our area and chose Debbie because we found her to be as advertized – knowledgeable, trustworthy-- and we would add personable, professional and highly motivated. Before our interview, she provided valuable information about how to prepare a home for sale, what to expect from a realtor, and best ways to market a home for the best price. After our interview we felt her sincerity and professionalism and we selected her as our agent, she helped us personalize our own staging and made plans to sell our property to receive maximum value. Excellent results.

Debbie was a great help when my dad needed to sell his home to move into an Assisted Living facility nearer to me, 150 miles away. The house needed fairly extensive work on the interior as well as a general clean up. Debbie arranged for the interior work to be done and got the house ready to sell in record time. She handled all the paper work and arranged all of the inspections. The open house she arranged was a resounding success, drawing a buyer that first weekend. She was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful during the whole process and I wouldn’t have been able to sell it without her help.
Sorry for the delay. This expresses our happiness with working with you and the result that we got. We will call soon for our celebration.
Please let us know if we can better express our testimonial as we want to be sure that the impact that you had on us is clear to others. Re: yelp or anywhere if we can know just how to do this we will be happy to follow through. (Please feel free to identify us any way you want.)
We think this tells it as it is.:
Debbie Giordano is money in the bank quickly. She sold our house with local knowledge and real estate know- how in six days at greater than asking price. She led us through sales procedures to escrow close in not much more or less than a month. The timeliness and frequency of her communication with daily phone call or email, her guidance and attention to every detail including "these blinds need attention," her realistic honest appraisal of our home sale potential "this is what I would expect but no guarantees." was exceptional and could not have been surpassed. This began the day we met Debbie which was about a month before she listed our house. She inspired us and constantly sparked our enthusiasm with her exuberance, confidence, and professionalism. Debbie was not only our trusted realtor, with her sensitivity and charm she proved to be our Friend.

Debbie helped us find our new home in Sunnyvale. While Sunnyvale is off the beaten path for her, she went right to work and found us a couple homes that fit our criteria. Getting a new home for the right (as low as possible) price is often a challenge but Debbie was up to the challenge. She hung in there with us until the deal was complete.
Above and beyond was offering us the use of her moving truck. While we used pros for the expensive furniture and heavy appliances, we used the truck for the 35 years of accumulated possessions and treasures. The truck is as easy to drive as any car.
Great experience with real estate agent Debbie Giordano!

We used Debbie services to both buy and sell a home. We were in a very special situation, as what we looked for was pretty rare in our market, forcing us to wait for the proper opportunity to present itself, and preventing us to sell before buying (took us 6 month to see a property that fullfilled our needs).
Long story short, From the time we first visited our target home to the time we signed the escrow on our old home, less than 2 months elapsed. In those 2 months, we bought our new home, moved in (using Debbie's truck), refreshed our old home (using Debbie's crew), then sold our old hom.
On top of that, we were happpy with both our purchase and sales prices.
All of that happened in Spring 2011, which was not the best time to sale any house...

When you're faced with selling a home in a short time frame because a reverse mortgage company continues to levy interest and service fees, by the day, on the remaining equity in a home.........then Debbie Giordano is who you want to call.
My father's home was left to me through a living trust. But we strongly considered walking away from the home due to the minimal equity that was left and a "buyers market" working against us. Debbie took a brief tour of the home and said that with some "tlc" improvements, like cleanup, interior painting and some minimal landscaping, she felt the home, if priced right, would sell quickly and we would realize a better profit than we had ever expected. (Her guestimate of final payout to us was right on the money!)
We followed her advice and she took care of everything. She arranged all the improvements of the home through her many contacts with local contractors and other specialists. She explained that any cleanup and improvements we were to make were to be paid at escrow after the home was to sell. And that is exactly what happened. There was no money up front! Debbie has some excellent contacts and the painters, landscapers, cleaners etc., that she works with are top notch, and all agree to be paid after the home is sold.
She held an open house and had multiple offers before a few days had passed. We got our asking price and everything has gone very smoothly, thanks to Debbie's "due diligence" and attention to detail.
She constantly followed up with us making sure all timelines were met and that we were kept informed the entire time.
We recommend Debbie wholeheartedly and will use her again if the need arises.
Thanks again Debbie!

I would like to thank you for your outstanding work and professionalism in the recent sale of our home.
The entire program you put together for us: from your suggestions in staging the home for sale, pricing, scheduling, and advertising open houses, the actual sale and then the 'hand holding' through escrow and closing was terrific and greatly appreciated. The added bonus was in your having a truck available for us to use for our relocation.
Whenever we have any future real estate needs we will certainly be in touch.
Thank you again.

I have told you on more than one occasion of my appreciation for the professional and efficient manner in which you handled the sale of my rental property in January of this year. I thought it might be of some value to you for me to document the reasons for my being appreciative.
As I'm sure you remember the project started with my being notified in late November 2010 by a renter of 17 years that she would be moving by year end. With me being in Florida and the probability that future renter would not be nearly as stable I quickly decided a sale was in order (despite the tax consequences). I came to you on my brother's recommendation in early December and you immediately went to the property, met with the renter and recommended a course of action that seemed reasonable. You listened to my feeling that the property should be sold as is and priced accordingly, thus allowing the new owners to choose their colors, etc. I listened to your suggestion of the proper pricing and after some trpidation concurred. You held an open house on the first weekend in January and we had the luxury of having several offers. The sale was finalized before the end of January at a price slightly more than my expectations (just as you said it might). You handled all the issues associated with an absent owner and your recommendations were right on point. Thank you again for being an honest, knowledgeable (and to even willing to listen when necessary) real estate professional. I would recommend you to any prospective client.

I just wanted to thank you again for selling our house. I couldn't believe the house sold in under a week. All your staging ideas seemed to make the house even more beautiful. The whole deal went smooth and you really helped us through our meltdowns time. Thank you for also helping expedite the sale of our home to coincide with the purchase of our new home. The new home recorded today and we will pick up keys tomorrow. The moving van that you provide to your clients comes in real handy. We definitely would recommend you to family and friends for their real estate needs.
Thank you again

Thank you for representing us with the purchase of our new home. You listened to our needs and quickly found the perfect property to meet those needs. Your thoroughness moved us to a quick purchase closure which we desired...and it all moved forward without a hitch. You also provided us with local resources to help make our move as easy as possible. You exceeded all our expectations

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the great service you provided to me during the sale of my old home.
Your understanding of the market and comprehensive real estate knowledge and skills were of the most value to me. You patiently listened to all my wishes and then gave me excellent advices and recommendations.
I would highly recommend you, to any of my friends looking for highly effective and reliable real estate agent. In fact, three of my neighbors told me that you were the one they will choose when they decide to sell their home.
I was fortunate that I had the opportunity to work with you. Your skills and knowledge were truly impressive
