It was a great experience from beginning to end. Deborah was recommended to me by a friend in real estate who said that if she was selling her own property, she'd engage Deborah. We felt we were in good hands from our first meeting with her, she is a lovely person, too. Deborah had a plan for us that made sense, and she was flexible, and encouraged me to be, when conditions changed on the ground. I found her extremely competent, and a person of integrity. I always felt she had our best interests at heart. We got an excellent price for our property, she listened to my concerns, she navigated the unexpected with aplomb, the timing was perfect, and contract negotiations and all details were handled well. Her assistant agent, Gabe, was great too.
My wife and I started to look for an investment property in January of 2021 and in May we closed on a gorgeous 4 unit building in Sausalito, CA with the help of Deborah Cole. Deborah is amazing. She took the time to understand our situation, she is extremely experienced with the market, guided us step by step and always had our best interest in mind. She continues to deliver even after the close, helping us with find electricians, plumbers and other professionals to help upgrade our investment property. Deborah is the perfect professional. So glad that she’s our agent and we can’t be happier with how she helped us.
Deborah Cole was masterful. From the moment we met her, she guided us firmly but kindly and respectfully. We made the decision to sell our house and then closed on our home in lightning speed. In between, she took us to see a number of houses to buy and we even bid on one. We never felt rushed, and Deborah is never pushy. She has this wonderful calm presence, but you know that she means business from her results. Deb always had answers for all our toughest questions and was also able to offer us help with every aspect of the preparation to sell and the actual move. We never knew what an agent could be. Deborah Cole has set the bar so high that I really hope she is available when we are ready to buy. We were incredibly impressed with the outstanding job she did with the sale of our home, and we have so appreciated all her tireless work and support, if anyone has earned the title, Top Agent, it is most certainly Deborah Cole!
When we first spoke with Deborah, it was clear that she had a vision and command of the local market. Additionally, it was the early stages of the stay-at-home environment and what struck us was how ahead of the curve Deborah was in this regard. She would explain to us exactly what was going to happen, and always hit the mark. This was invaluable in these uncertain times and helped lead to the successful sale of our home. Similarly, we benefited from Deborah's expertise and agility in buying our new home. It was surprisingly easy as Deborah would guide us and all we had to do was accept her advice and action on it. Deborah has fully earned our trust and that can be a rare commodity these days.
We had a tough situation of needing to find a good family home in a short amount of time with a limited budget, and in a limited area of Marin. Deborah was a rock star for us. She was very proactive setting us up with tours and handling communications and negotiations, but what really struck us was how she addressed questions and tough issues on the spot, making calls and contacting the right people so we could move on to the next issue. No time was lost, and that was critical to our success. We ended up very happy with the new home and the price paid. She also demonstrated numerous times during negotiations that she was working on our behalf financially, and not focused on maximizing her commission. We would work with Deborah again any time and recommend her highly.
Deb helped us buy (and sell) our home in Mill Valley, and then our new home in Sausalito. We needed to sell our Mill Valley home quickly, but not lose our shirts, and she was amazingly helpful in negotiating that exit. And with our new condo she helped us come up with a strategy for a winning bid without the aggravation many buyers experience in the Bay Area. She's always there when you need her (does she ever sleep?) and just as nice as can be, too.
We found Deborah to be very professional and an extremely hard worker. In addition she is very accommodative. She is also wired and responds quickly. We could not have found a better agent!
Through her we found our home and were able to buy it in a very competitive environment thanks to her resourcefulness and tenacity. We would highly recommend her!
We recently purchased a home in Sausalito CA. Deborah Coles' knowledge of the local market and team of professionals ensured we were able to submit an offer very quickly. Deborah was very professional, fair and diligent throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Deborah!
We engaged Deborah to represent us in our property search in Marin County and we couldn't have found a better agent. We felt that Deborah truly represented our interest. Often times agents will pressure client to overbid or overreach in their property acquisition process. But not with Deborah. She took to time to fully understand our needs and limitations. She leveraged this knowledge to really help us in finding the right property for us; not just a property that meets standards. Her immense local expertise allowed us to focus our search and saved a great deal of both time and effort.
Ultimately, we were able to acquire a great property in Tiburon, below the asking price and under our budget, but nonetheless, perfect for our needs. I can say without a doubt that we would not have been able to acquire this property without her help.
Additionally, as first time house buyers, Deborah handheld us through the process. Often times she leveraged her extensive professional network to provide us specific expertise when needed. We closed on time and at below comparable market closing costs. We can say unequivocally, that she will be the first person we'll call on for help when we renovate, sell or buy another home in the area.
Deborah was excellent in every aspect, we would highly recommend her. We initially met Deborah when we viewed a property in Sausalito, which we decided wasn't for us. Deborah kept our property requirements in mind and she contacted us many weeks later with the perfect property, which we bought immediately!
