Debbie went above and beyond in trying to help us find replacement properties for a 1031 Exchange on a very short timeline, and in a very competitive sellers' market. I would highly recommend Debbie (and Sanit) for your real estate needs. Debbie is committed, diligent, and very well-connected in the San Mateo County area (and beyond). Thank you, Debbie and Sanit!
My husband and I came cross Debbie's profile when searching for a realtor to help us purchase our first home. Debbie came highly recommended and we can give the same recommendation. With Debbie we also met Carly Seiff. Both Debbie and Carly are professional, highly knowledgeable and very experienced. When we decided upon a property we knew would suit our needs, Debbie and Carly took over negotiating for us in a highly competitive situation. As first time home buyers, and after spending 6 weeks searching, we were thrilled when we won the very first offer we made on a property. Huge credit goes to Debbie's and Carly's strategy to support us through this process. Buying a home in the Bay Area is a stressful process, Debbie and Carly were with us every step of the way, highly responsive, reassuring when needed and always supporting us to make the right decision. We recently celebrated our first home anniversary, have absolutely no regrets and love our home. Thank you Debbie and Carly!
Debbie is hands-down awesome!As seventy other reviewers said, she is one of the best realtors in the San Mateo County, Bay Area, and California. Working with her only validated her excellent reputation.Debbie has superior knowledge of the market. Great intuition. Also, she is very keen on her clients' interests. Together with her teammate, Sanit Bordeianu, she is willing to go the extra mile and works tirelessly for them. She is also a great researcher - willing and able to find out the exact information one needs in the decision-making process for a house purchase. When the time for negotiations comes, she is without equal: her negotiation skills are sharp and effective. What impressed us further is that she truly respects her client's point of view. We never felt under pressure. She gave us direct opinions and thorough advice on multiple occasions. Her expertise allowed us to totally trust every bit of advice she gave. She walked us through the process and kept us informed. Most importantly, she is open and honest and we really appreciated that!She also went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly after the purchase. She has great references from architects to handymen. We really, really appreciate how Debbie and Sanit keep checking in on our progress - and we don't know what we would have done without having them as great allies in what can be a daunting and complicated set of tasks.In addition, they are wonderful, caring people, and Debbie's family, whom we got to meet, is equally wonderful! Whomever is lucky to have her, and her team, as agents, will be in great hands. Thank you very much, Debbie!
Debbie is amazing. My wife and I had decided to move from Belmont to a more centrally located location. We never thought we would end up in Burlingame. A great sell and a great buy. Debbie was a true professional. We sold in belmont for over $500K above asking and bought in Burlingame in a prime location without a hitch.
My husband and I chose to work with Debbie and her team when looking for our first home and we are very glad we did. In the competitive Bay Area/Peninsula market Debbie and her associate Carly Seiff helped us out with everything from to learning about the local neighborhoods to making our offers stand out to sellers. Carly was always available to meet us at a house we liked to provide us with knowledgeable insights into everything from what potential offers may look like to what to look out for in the disclosure packets. She was also very patient with our work/child care schedules and two very active little boys, ages 2 & 5. When we found the home we eventually bought both Debbie and Carly helped us each step of the way through the closing process which included a last minute revise in the closing three days before it was to be finalized! We love our new home and owe it all to Debbie and Carly! You will not find better agents on the Peninsula!
I had the privilege of working with Debbie. I had previously listed the home, and it wasn't doing what I needed. Debbie has a network of people to work with, knows what to do, and, how to get it done. She's on the go, multi-tasking, giving you ideas what to do, easy to work with. Overall, a very good experience, you wouldn't be disappointed using her!
We hadn't sold a home in decades but found ourselves in need of relocating on short notice. Since Debbie not only lived in the area and came highly recommended, we chose to engage her and her team. They provided a number of contemporary ideas for making the property more sell-able, soon listed the home, seemed to work 24/7, and within less than a week had several highly qualified buyers. The closing went off both without a hitch and in a timely manner. We not only started our move promptly but had a price realization well in excess of our expectations.Without hesitation we would recommend Debbie and team to anyone interested in either buying or selling a home in this area
Debbie came highly recommended from one of our good friends and we are very glad that we went with her. Better still, we found another great realtor in Carly Seiff, who works together with Debbie, and helped us every step of the way.We were first time home buyers and it took us several months to buy our house. Both Debbie and Carly were very patient & took the time to understand our requirements. We were picky buyers with lot of requirements, but we found that Debbie and Carly were still able to recommend us houses that matched our liking. They were generous with their time, explaining various new concepts to us novices to help us make the right decision. They are also tough negotiators. That is the reason why we were able to buy a house that we liked in this tough market. Debbie is very knowledgeable. She can figure out most of the positives and negatives of a house within few minutes of entering it. Just mentioning she is our agent often gave us more face-time with selling agents in crowded open houses. Carly has the patience and energy one requires to stay on top of this market, and she did several house tours with us at all times of the day to help us out. They are both candid with their opinions and we completely trust them. That is why they told us not to buy quite a few houses that we were interested in and now looking back we know that those houses would have been bad investments. After we bought our house we needed a contractor. Debbie introduced us to a contractor immediately after we closed. She took care of all the things that one needs to know after buying a house. She has amazing references from contractors to plumbers. Best part is that she really cares that you find what you really want. Even now, a month after we have closed, they keep checking in on our progress - we truly believe they are great allies in what can be a super-daunting and complicated task - they made the process really easy for us and in the process we ended up making two great friends.
We had Debbie Wilhelm sell our home in San Mateo earlier this year. The primary reason we chose Debbie was because we were impressed with her marketing strategy for the home and because she saw the potential in everything rather than the negatives. Her recommendations for improvements of the property prior to sale were spot on, and her team delivered well. Stacy in her office was a great help and we loved Diane's recommendations.We would recommend Debbie for any sale in San Mateo.
Debbie Wilhelm represented me in the recent sale of my home. After having worked with her I highly recommend her as an excellent agent. She has extensive knowledge of the local real estate market and was always very professional and responsive in a timely way from the beginning to the end of the process. I was delighted to work with her. She guided me through the entire process seamlessly including the extensive paper work. Her straight forward style and direct opinions based on her knowledge of the local market were greatly appreciated. With her extensive list of qualified contractors she was able to recommend professional and efficient contractors to make some upgrades and repairs and took a big part in assuring their work was done efficiently and on time.Thanks to Debbie's expertise, the result was excellent. I was able to sell my home after just one week on the market with multiple offers and for almost 20% above the asking price!She also quickly found an interim rental home for me through her many contacts. I highly recommend Debbie and look forward to having her represent me on my next home purchase.
