Testimonials from Real Estate Clients

Courteous and professional.

— Tom

Deb Peter was one of the most helpful and responsive REALTORS that I have had the pleasure of working with.

— Jack

Thank you Deb. You’ve done such a good job with two transactions for me, and not being there locally. I really appreciate the extra time and energy you put in as a result.

— Kristin

… You held my hand through every phase of our transaction together and you were completely professional and trustworthy. I feel like I not only got to know an extremely reliable agent, but also made a wonderful friend. Thanks for all you did Deb. You are wonderful and greatly appreciated …

— Julia

Deb was always there for us. When our spirits were down she lifted us up. Deb was a step ahead of us and took care of many things we never thought about. We want to thank her for all that she did and for the wonderful dinner gift. Deb became more than a Realtor – she is now a close friend.

— Michael and Mary Ann

Deb Peter has to be one of the most patient, understanding and professional real estate agents there is. She listened to what we were interested in and persisted in finding us exactly what we wanted. Since the priorities for the two of us were somewhat different, Deb really had a challenge. She responded by continually looking for the perfect match. We would heartily recommend her to anyone looking for property.

— David and Lori

When we decided we wanted to live in Cool, we had to decide on who was going to help us find a home. We are so happy we picked Deb Peter. Deb showed us different styles, locations, and settings to establish our wants and needs. She was in constant contact with us and made us feel we were her only clients. She not only made looking for a home a great experience, we actually had fun along the way and this was only the beginning. When we found the home we wanted, she worked diligently to get us the best deal and she protected our interest. It was wonderful to have someone in Cool we could trust completely with this life-changing move.

— Alan and Delayne

From the first time Deb Peter sat down at our table to discuss putting our home on the market we had her full attention. Nothing was ever rushed and we always felt that our questions or concerns became her questions and concerns. She checked into P.O.A. and County information related to our property, cleared up easement issues, contacted competent contractors for repairs and followed up on all issues making sure all the ducks were in a row by closing. She is thorough, dependable and professional, but we were always treated more like family than clients. She was as delighted as we were at closing and she has a great giggle. Thanks so much to Deb for making a stressful experience such a fond memory.

— Kenneth

Deb Peter is Job’s sister! For two years she kept the faith and perservered with patience to find me a home that fulfilled my needs and desires. When I signed the final contract – WE ALL WON!

— Valerie

You are a true professional that went way above and beyond to make my new home dreams come true. I truly do not know what I would have done without your expertise, guidance and above all your support, patience and understanding. You are not only a wonderful REALTOR, but a great friend, listener and counselor who got me through a most difficult time and decisions. Thank you so much!

— Rho

This first time Seller is very grateful for the time and trouble (Deb Peter) took in guiding me through the process of selling – the house preparations and repairs, to say nothing of the mountains of paperwork – couldn’t have done it without her!

— Lynda

Very friendly and professional service.

— Steve

Deb did everything possible to make a difficult escrow go smoothly. Since I did not live in the area I had to rely on Deb to set up and attend all inspections and repairs. She did a fabulous and professional job.

— Janice

Deb Peter is a very talented and experienced realtor. She has incredible energy, intuition, and creativity. Deb is a phenomenally caring person and that shines through each time you talk with her. We were faced with selling a fairly unique property (perhaps overbuilt for the area). Deb excelled at keeping us updated and informed about everything going on in the market, as well as with our listing. She was very honest and forthright in telling us the straight story. Deb did not shy away from giving us the painful news about what type of price was necessary to make things happen when needed. We thoroughly trusted her judgement and agreed to her careful and appropriate recommendations. Deb was the very best person for the job of shepherding us through the offer we received only one month after listing with her. While escrow has become more of an unknown landscape these days, Deb was thoroughly prepared at every juncture. We needed a seasoned and conscientious professional to get us through the horribly depressing buyer’s market. Deb was that person in all ways. Not only did we sell our house so we could move on to our new life, we were gifted with a new and dear friend. Once we listed with Deb we truly felt comfortable and secure in her eminently capable hands.
