Helped a remote seller please an extended family of beneficiaries by selling their late grandparents' home for $2,200,000
My responsibility for selling our family home was complicated by living far away and having interests of many cousins to consider.  Her calm and prompt handling of so many details made all the difference. We highly recommend Debbie. The fact that she has lived in Del Mar for so long gave her the connections to make our sell happen. Thank you, Debbie, for navigating us through the sale skillfully, smoothly, and successfully!

Represented the Seller of this ocean view home and quickly sold it off market for $1,680,000.  Great story!

I chose Debbie and Bill because I anticipated a complex sale, and I wanted some highly skilled agents. I could tell they were particularly smart, clearly very experienced and they were very personable. Debbie and Bill went above and beyond what I expected in selling our home. Their expertise, motivation, teamwork, and excellent connections (connections are important!) enabled us to surpass my expectations with an off-market sale and a 9-day close, despite the significant and unexpected complexities that arose along the way.   As people and business partners, they were a pleasure to work with as they lived up to their motto, “make buying or selling a home a good experience with a great outcome for our clients.” I highly recommend them, and bear in mind you get two great minds for the price of one!    - Mack Ransom

It was a relief to be able to entrust the sale of our home to Debbie and her team, especially after we moved away. When the first buyer couldn’t get financing and backed out, Debbie worked to quickly bring in a backup buyer. During escrow she took care of all the many details, and we couldn’t have done it without her. Great communications, consistent follow through, terrific results, and she was a pleasure to work with!

A friend recommended Debbie, who had quickly sold her Mom’s home for over list price, and the smooth transaction couldn’t have gone better.  We had a similarly great experience.  Debbie not only got us a full price offer right away, she lined up a qualified backup offer.  We’ll miss our friends in San Diego, but leave for them this recommendation: when it comes time to sell your home, use Debbie Carpenter
