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.
Thank you again.
