We thank our stars to have found Debby as our Realtor. From the very first meeting, Debby made the process of finding our dream home, pain-free and worry-free. This is NO easy task in Newton given our specific requirements, our extremely busy schedules, and the fact that we were also selling our previous house at the same time! Debby represented us for both the purchase of our new house and sale for our old house and let me tell you SHE IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST! As a top realtor, Debby knows the market in and out. She knows when the new houses are coming on the market, has a huge network, and is very well respected! On the purchase front, Debby made ...— L and P
Debby promised us at the outset that she would be always available, and that she would help with all the incidental activities -- and she kept her promise. I don't know when she sleeps, because she always responded to my emails and texts promptly, day or night, weekday or weekend. “Some other things that made her a great broker for us included: 1. Contact list. Whether it is craftsmen, cleaners, attorneys, or stagers, Debby has a list of great people she can bring in to help (and did in our case). They all came at the scheduled time (sometimes on short notice) and did great work. 2. Experience. Debby's suggestions for how we should proceed at eve...— Dan
From the moment I called Debby to list our home to our closing three months later, Debby managed our process seamlessly. As fast as I moved, Debby was always a few steps ahead of me. Her market expertise was spot on, her candor in advising us on how to update our beloved, yet dated, home of 32 years coupled with her portfolio of skilled resources made the process doable. Debby drew on all the marketing power of Hammond and her strong relationships with the top realtors in the area which helped our house stand out in a busy market. She proactively framed our decisions clearly, giving us time to mull over big decisions. We were in Asia during the sel...— KKT
Debby did a fantastic job as our agent and I would not hesitate to highly recommend her to anyone. Her experience and sensitivity to the market was evident from the time we listed our house until we closed on its sale: her market analysis was timely and thorough; her guidance about how to prepare our house to be shown was invaluable; and she had access to a suite of first-rate vendors from whom we could choose to declutter our home and otherwise quickly get it ready for sale. Debby then created opportunities for us to show our home through her extensive network of contacts and was diligent about making herself available to anyone who wanted to do ...— A. R.
They say that moving is one of the most challenging experiences in life, but it doesn’t have to be if Debby Belt is your Realtor®. Even during a global pandemic, Debby made the process feel seamless and even enjoyable. From the moment we started looking at homes, Debby’s calm, easy going manner made the process less stressful. She never once tried to influence our decision or pressure us to make an offer. Debby made it clear that we were never wasting her time no matter what our timeline was or how many homes we wanted to tour. Even if we wanted to look at a home that was not within our target area solely for the sake of comparison, she was always e...— R. G. & A. L.
I am so glad that you agreed to represent my mom in the sale of her Chestnut Hill condo. I was aware that you were a top selling Realtor® and knew first-hand how incredibly organized you are from your days as Angier PTO President, but what I didn’t fully understand was how your kindness would make what could have been an awful process as stress free as possible. Having just lost my father, and for my mom, her husband, we were taking a step that for all of my mom’s married life, my dad would have handled. You took the time to make my mom feel comfortable with you (I already was), you patiently explained all market considerations when listing the prop...— Jen
In early 2019, we asked Debby to assist us in looking at condos, as we're empty nesters who were looking to downsize. She accompanied us on showings and in advance of each showing she comprehensively briefed us on the positive and negative attributes of each. During the showings she pointed out issues and asked questions of the listing broker that we would never think to ask. Not for one moment did she push or prod us to buy anything that we saw. And when we expressed interest in a particular property, she was quick to provide us with a market analysis as well as her objective, data-driven recommendations. We eventually made an offer on a unit and s...— Alan F.
Our experience working with Debby was extraordinary! We lived in our home for over 25 years and Debby provided patient, non-pressured perspective leading up to our decision to sell. Once we gave her the green light to list our home she was incredibly proactive at every stage: She helped us see our home as buyers would so that we could get ahead of enhancing both its strengths and weaknesses; she provided concrete advice and referrals in connection with cleaning up and getting our house ready for sale; she thoughtfully and carefully prepared comps and walked us through the various strategic and tactical considerations of pricing - yet let us establis...— Michael & Amy
True professional integrity and a genuine wish to help the client are hard to come by qualities. Especially together and especially in the real estate world. Debby has them both in abundance. We had the fortune to work with Debby in the sale of our condo and the purchase of our new home. Throughout the process, Debby was extremely responsive and made herself available 24/7 at all times. Debby is highly strategic, and always ten steps ahead of everyone else in the game. She is remarkably resourceful and can work within multiple constrains to get the best possible deal, both for sellers and buyers. We couldn’t be happier with the results. If this was ...— Laura L.
We are very grateful to have engaged Debby in our search for a home for our young family. Debby was incredibly responsive to any question and made herself available to join us with every listing we wanted to see. In this extremely competitive environment for buyers, Debby guided us with honest and helpful insights. Her expertise was so critical as we were looking at homes for the first time and didn't know exactly what we were looking for. Debby did not pressure us at any point and walked us through every detail and educated us on how to make thoughtful offers. We ultimately had an offer accepted on a home that we are very excited about and feel con...— Vadim & Emily
We had the pleasure of working with Debby for a local move within Waban. Debby worked with us patiently for over 2 years to find a home that was perfect for us, while simultaneously preparing us to list our house once we found something. She never pushed a property, but when we found the house we wanted, she knew exactly how to present the most attractive offer. She knows the local market inside and out, which was helpful on both the buy side and the sell side. I cannot imagine buying in this competitive market without Debby's insight. On the sell side, she managed multiple offers over asking price to find the best buyer. Her tips on how to best pre...— M. H. & J. H.
From start to finish you went above and beyond. Your guidance, perspective, and expertise at the beginning of the process set the groundwork for an outstanding outcome. I was a trusted advisor on the outside looking in (albeit at times you may have felt like I was on the inside!) and from my perspective you were fantastic your recommendations on, and coordination of, what work to do on the house, how to stage the property, the professional photo shot, the pricing, the listing, the open houses and the strategic negotiation of the counter offer just to name a few. The house sold so fast and for so much greater then ask! You exceeded my very high expec...— F. V.
Working with Debby was an absolute pleasure. As we were out of country clients, Debby solved so many issues for us. It was an estate sale with an ambitious timeline. Debby provided total support, sharing her contacts and arranging to get the house ready for sale in a timely manner. She gave us great advice on when to put the property on the market, pricing, staging, and so much more. We saw and appreciated all the extra work put in. Debby always kept us up-to-date on the progress of our sale and we knew she had everything under control. No one works harder than Debby. You will never find a more knowledgeable, genuine, professional, kind-hearted and ...— Paul & Nancy B.

We had the pleasure of working with Debby Belt on a recent home purchase. Our experience was excellent. During the process, Debby was always responsive. Her knowledge of the market is solid. Debby offers great counsel and works extremely hard to make the process less stressful for her buyers. She also brings in terrific partners who worked together seamlessly (lawyers, banker, inspectors). Lastly, even when the transaction completed, Debby stayed in touch to offer her support on anything we might need. All in all, we'd highly recommend working with Debby.— Jeff & Robin G.
Debby, your experience and smarts helped this nervous seller through the wrenching process of selling a family home. From the beginning you told me to ‘listen to the market’ and not to my dreams. You were right, as always. You brought to this sale so much more than I expected: an intimate knowledge of the neighborhood, a creative approach to problem solving, a long list of proven contractors, a gentle, generous spirit, and a steady hand on the wheel. Thank you, thank you for all your help and seeing every detail through to the close which was today.— Rebecca M.
Even before signing the contract, we felt like Debby was working with us to present our home in the best light. She had pictures taken and didn’t miss a beat when we put off our desire to sell until the next season. She was thorough, thoughtful, and answered all of our questions through the contract and pre-sale process. Once we had our offers is where Debby really shone. She took the emotion out of the process, advised us the whole way through, and very successfully helped us navigate a multiple-offer situation.— Stefanie C.
We will always be so grateful that you guided our process of selling our home with unerring effectiveness and professionalism. You either resolved every issue that arose on your own (in consultation with us) or knew who to contact. The result was an offer that we accepted within the first week that the house was on the market. Not only was this satisfying and relieving in its own right, but the speed of closure meant that we did not have to be trying to sell it during uncertainties.— Reichi & Bill T.
We are first-time home-buyers and cannot thank Debby enough for her expert guidance during this process. From home tours to final closing day, Debby's extensive experience and resources were invaluable. She continued to advocate for us once our offer was accepted and made herself available for any issue that arose. We strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a new home to ensure your search and purchase goes as seamlessly and efficiently as ours!— Tom & Naomi
Debby was everything we could want in a real estate agent; knowledgeable, always available, and professional. She guided us in the sale of our home in which we had lived for 47 years. She knew the market and how to present our property for the greatest market impact. Our house sold in 5 days, and over-asking! Her list of resources, be it an attorney, electrician, painter, or someone to haul away our unwanted things eased our transition.— Linda & Richard P.
We cannot say enough great things about our experience working with Debby. Throughout the process she provided clear and consistent advice. Debby was always accessible to answer our questions. Her knowledge and expertise was invaluable in preparing our house to list and ultimately leading to a successful sale. Working with Debby was our best decision in selling our home!— Jerry D.
Thank you so much for all of your hard work. We are delighted with the outcome. We had no idea how to start the process and we are so grateful for your guidance and patience. Debby, you are a true professional. We are grateful to have you as our Realtor® and friend.— D. & J.
Wow. You all are the A-Team as far as I am concerned. I so appreciate everything you did to make this happen under dire circumstances. I will sing your praises to anyone who is looking for a wonderful and incredible real estate agent.— Gretchen F.
A big official thank you, Debby, for all your help! Your thoroughness, handholding, proactiveness, professionalism, resources, contacts and more all were much appreciated!— S. I.
We would like to thank you for your hard work and professional expertise in helping us find our dream home in such a difficult market of high interest rates and limited supply. You gave great advice on market pricing and accommodated our needs. Your local knowledge and connections were a tremendous advantages in helping us to find the right homes in a highly competitive market. You are so resourceful with all the information that we needed, from a highly reputable real estate attorney to tradespeople to neighborhood friends. There are so many times you had saved us from unforeseen urgent situations, such as a service appointment cancellation at th...— Buyer
We had the pleasure of working with an exceptional realtor, who excels in her field, Debby Belt. Her knowledge of the Brookline market was unparalleled, and her expertise made our home buying experience smooth and successful. She was pleasant, in tune with our family's needs, and always prepared. Thanks to her connections with any service that one may need in home purchasing and moving, we were able to buy and sell in 2 weeks. Throughout the entire purchase, her professionalism and commitment to excellence shone brightly. Communication was easy and excellent. She was always available to answer our questions and provide guidance. In addition to he...— D and A
Thank you again. You are a Peach!! Through all the nuanced conversations, you have guided us so astutely at every single turn. We would not be here without your wisdom, savvy, nuance and kindness! You knew where the hazards lay and guided us around them deftly and quickly - more than once before we even knew the importance of speedy decisions / actions. You were available nearly INSTANTLY every time we communicated. You stood up for us/our mom in a way that made us feel cared for and protected. We wouldn’t have the sale without your guidance.— LB and XB
