Read what happy clients say about their positive experiences working with Debby Belt

R. G. & A. L.

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 eager to accommodate us even though it was somewhat complicated to coordinate home tours during the time of Covid when everything was appointment only with limited access. When we did find our new home, Debby worked tirelessly to make sure that…

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 eager to accommodate us even though it was somewhat complicated to coordinate home tours during the time of Covid when everything was appointment only with limited access. When we did find our new home, Debby worked tirelessly to make sure that we not only got a fair price but that all points of negotiation were resolved fairly and as advantageously as possible. After our experience purchasing a new home with Debby, we couldn’t think of selling our home with anyone but Debby. During the sale of our home, her attention to detail made all the difference in how we marketed our home. She worked diligently in advance of our showings so that there would be the absolute minimum disruption to our family. Throughout every inspection, meeting, and purchaser visit, Debby showed up promptly and was always pleasant and gracious. She understands that the process can be fraught with emotion and she does her best to alleviate any avoidable angst for her clients, from helping provide resources to being available 24/7. Even long after we have moved into our new home, she gladly has remained a resource to us at all times and she remembers critical information about our new home that even we have forgotten. We have a beautiful new home and the only part that is bittersweet is that we don’t get to see Debby as much as we would like.

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 property and negotiating offer, and you always addressed the emotional side of the transaction, so that my mom felt good. You were also masterful at navigating a mother daughter relationship when having to deal with both my mom and me, which is no…

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 property and negotiating offer, and you always addressed the emotional side of the transaction, so that my mom felt good. You were also masterful at navigating a mother daughter relationship when having to deal with both my mom and me, which is no easy feat! Now for the details. The market research you did was comprehensive. Your advice how to prepare and stage the condo for the sale were spot on. Your referrals for completing the work were all exceptional. The marketing materials you prepared for the sale were professional and put the best light on the condo. And your negotiating skills were just the right touch to get the deal done. And finally, you never rested until the closing. You paid attention to every detail, you communicated with us constantly, and you sent us written instructions every step of the sale up, until the closing, which kept us organized. In a word, you were amazing. Thank you again for your professionalism and kindness. I will enthusiastically recommend you to anyone I know looking to buy or sell in the Newton area!

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 she vigorously negotiated on your behalf. After the offer was accepted, and after we let her know of our vision to make improvements to the unit, she immediately provided us with names from her stable of painters, electricians and others.

After the offer was accepted, and after we let her know of our vision to make improvements to the unit, she immediately provided us with names from her stable of painters, electricians and others. When things went awry on the eve of the closing, she calmly eased us through the crisis. And even after the closing, when the air conditioning system, dishwasher and hot water heater were not functioning correctly and when other agents would have pocketed their commission and walked away, she remained in contact with the listing broker and was resolute in wanting to resolve the problems and to make us happy. And she did. Debby's credo, voiced many times to us, is ‘I will not rest until you're happy. She practices what she preaches. It's not optional for you to have Debby in your camp; it's actually essential if you want to feel as if your interests are being protected basically 24/7.

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 establish an asking price with which we could feel comfortable; she staged the house in a manner that would present the ‘story’ of the home; she aggressively pre-marketed our home to her wide and deep network of agents, developers, and buyers; she hel…

Her work was a tour de force, and her high character, integrity, and honesty were evident in every aspect of the sale. We are, and will forever be, incredibly grateful to Debby and offer our unqualified and highest recommendation.
