“We arranged for Debra Wellins to broker the sale of our Miami home, having first known of her as a very bright and ethical person over 30 years ago.  We began the selling process in late January.  We listened carefully to her advice about preparing our home for sale.  After two months of landscaping and tree trimming, home repairs, painting, removing excess furnishings, and taking personal photographs and much of the artwork from our walls, our home was photographed and then listed at the end of March.  The results were astonishing, starting with hundreds of hits on her blog, and then about 40 prospective buyers in about 10 days.  At the end of that time we had eight offers for our home, and accepted an offer at our asking price.  We closed on the sale on the 24th of June.  Throughout that process, Debra was a paragon of professionalism, patience, thoroughness, punctuality and enthusiasm, with a good sense of humor.  We would not hesitate to use her for any other home sale, and the buyers were so impressed by her that they engaged her to sell their present home.”

“Debra was my realtor in the sale of my home in South Miami.  It was always a pleasure working with her, but perhaps the most important qualities about Debra is her knowledge of the market, consummate professionalism and attention to detail.  The patience and follow-through she exhibited were the only reason we were able to close this sale.”

“The sale of my home was complicated by the fact that I had moved out of state.  I relied on Debra for everything, including getting the house ready to be shown.  She kept in constant communication about showings, gave excellent feedback and was on top of every issue.  When an offer came in from an out of state buyer, complicating the matter even more, Debra’s negotiating skills and attention to detail saved the day.  I highly recommend Debra for your next home sale.”

“When Debra Wellins first heard the details of my 1909 Dade County pine home – and the requirements I had for selling it – she simply said, “Don’t worry, Pat.  We can do this.  I’ll work with you, and we’ll make it happen.” And happen it did.  Debra created a plan of targeted marketing to specific groups of people who would be interested in a historic home with an acre of land. I didn’t want it torn down, and Debra supported my wish.  I had never sold a home before, and she guided me through every facet of the process.  The house sold at its appraised value, and I have Debra to thank for making it all so easy.  Thank you, Debra!”

“We chose Debra to represent us in the sale of our Coconut Grove townhouse because she came highly recommended.  We’ve bought and sold several homes over the years and this was by far our best experience. Her professional ethics, high standards, quick responses and great communication skills made us feel at ease and in great hands through the entire process. We also really appreciated the electronic signing as it made the paperwork so much faster and easier. We are extremely grateful to Debra, very happy with the sale and excited to move on to the next phase of our lives.”

“There’s nothing quite like finding and working with someone you like and trust, who truly understands the client’s needs and abilities, be they physical, emotional or financial.  From our first conversation and my description of what I was looking for, Debra “got it” and was committed to that goal – staying true to what I described.  We finally found it and her patience, professionalism and follow-up was extraordinary.  Even after the closing, she made sure that the loose ends were tied.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone.  Thanks Debra.”

“Debra was amazing and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a house.  She was always very responsive to our requests and knew exactly what we were looking for.  She has great knowledge of the area that we were interested in and was very diligent in scheduling us to see as many houses as we could fit into a weekend. Debra always has a smile on her face and is willing to hold your hand through the difficult decision making process.”

“Debra has been our friend for over 30 years.  When it was time to buy a new home, we knew she was the exact person we wanted to help us.  It took over a year to find our perfect home, but she never gave up and never lost enthusiasm. Once we found THE house, she negotiated a great price and made the entire process painless, smooth and easy. This is the person you want to represent you in any real estate transaction.  She’s smart, efficient, honest, a strong negotiator and extremely pleasant to work with. We  highly recommend Debra as a realtor and friend.”

“Debra showed us many properties with patience and grace to find ones that suited our budget and other constraints. We are extremely happy with the condo and with Debra’s friendly service and personal touch.  I would absolutely go to Debra again for any future house hunting.”

David and Elena Enfield

 

“Debra helped us find a great condo in Bay Harbor Islands while we were living in Alaska and working at sea. We were quite specific about the area because of its close proximity to family. We thought it would be difficult to find a home being out of state and often out of range of normal communication, but Debra took the time to flawlessly arrange everything. She went the extra mile to negotiate a price that was within our budget and made the process of closing on our new home incredibly smooth and easy. Our family was able to move into our new home as soon as we arrived in Miami.  Debra went above and beyond for us and exceeded our expectations of what a realtor could and should do for her client. Thank you Debra for all your help.”
