Debra is a true professional. She managed our expectations and guided us through the home selling process flawlessly. Not only did we sell our home for what we wanted, we were under contract within a couple weeks and closed less than 48 hours after our renters moved out. All this was a direct result of Debra's know-how and diligence. Jennifer Hadac
Debra was efficient, organize and all over it. My house was sold within days of listing with her. Gary J
Debra Whitfield is a 5 star agent. She went above and beyond to help myself and my parents buy a lot, build a BEAUTIFUL home, even attended walk throughs when we were unable to as we were 1000 miles away. Her integrity and time accompanied with her knowledge and understanding of the purchase, planning, the building process through to our closing was particularly comforting to us. I highly recommend Debra Whitfield as an agent and can attest to her undeniable work ethic and ability to get the job done in a most timely and efficient manner. Barbara, Carol and Bill C.
Debra was great!! I was so impressed with her support, suggestions and patience. We talked about my dream of moving to South Carolina and she gave me the courage to start the path. Although we'd always shared the dream, my husband was hesitant to leave everyone behind. We finally started the process of selling our place in WI and looking for a house. After 1 1/2 years of going back and forth, loosing a couple places we liked and being up and down, we sold our house. Immediately I called Debra and she came through with the perfect place. We are so happy to be in Charleston area and we love Debra! Bonnie and Steve Welsh, Summerville, SC
