This was my first experience in selling a house. I had several questions before, during and after the sale. Debra Lawrence always responded to my questions in a very timely and efficient manner. I was very impressed with her professionalism. She is an extremely hard worker and always had my interests in mind. I am very pleased with this initial home selling experience. I highly recommend her.

Debra is certainly an expert! Her advice in selling and buying our house was extremely helpful. Our wants and needs were her priority. Our buying and selling experience went very smoothly thanks to her guidance.

When we found ourselves in the middle of a real estate nightmare, Deb stepped in and truly became our saving grace. Not only did she bring immense industry knowledge and expertise to the table, but she was our biggest advocate, both in the selling of our former home and the purchase of our current home.

Throughout the entire negotiation process, it was evident we were Deb’s first priority, and she would never settle for anything less than what was in our best interest.

We’ve recommended Deb to several friends and family members and will continue to do so for years to come!

Deb Lawrence is the best realtor I have every used. We used Deb as our buying agent and she made the process so easy. She showed us homes that we never would have found on our own. We love her and would highly reccomend her. Jill VanMenxel and Jan Quitzau

I have known Debra for over 25 years. I have had the pleasure of having her as my realtor in both selling and buying numerous homes throughout those years. She is extremely professional, courteous, responsive and doesn’t stop until she satisfies all customer needs! I would and have recommended her highly to anyone in search of a realtor.

Five years ago we moved here form up North. Deb was so sweet, polite and knowledgeable and put up with taking us thru 35 homes before we decided on the one we wanted, and again she asked are you sure??? I didn’t force this on you, we laughed no its the perfect house!!!! She took us to many homes and even walked out of some when she walked in and knew before we did it wasn’t for us!!!! Thanks Deb we LOVE you for your honesty !!!!!

Debra was very masterful in our dealings with a recent difficult owner of a house we purchased this summer in the Syracuse area.. Her skill helped close the deal when it appeared our attempt to buy the house would end up just a few thousand short of the amount that both the seller and buyer could accept.

The term “professional” while most appropriate when referring to Deb, doesn’t define her nearly well enough. She redefines terms such as competent, experienced, practiced and adept in the way she learns her clients larger needs but listens to the small ones that make or break selling a house or selling the home of your dreams. The only way the above happens at all is for Deb to know her clients, not just as clients per se, but as one might know a good neighbor. Our journey in home hunting took more turns than a Formula One race at Le Mans which frustrated us and no doubt Deb…but you’d never have known and in the end, we bought exactly the home we’d been looking for because she knew that…allowing us to bid and win the bid on a home on the market just 72 hours…again, because Deb’s experience and attention to the market came through. You’d be foolish to contract with anyone but Deb.

I was referred to Debra when I wanted to list a property I wanted to sell . She got back to me right away and even met with me a holiday weekend. She evaluated the property and decided on a asking price that was way more than I thought I could get. I turns out she was right , I received an offer within days pretty close to asking price . She knew the neighborhood and has sold many properties in the neighborhood. She took great pictures of my home and marketed it in many ways including social media which I think helped bring a quick offer. She was always willing to answer any questions I had and helped us through the entire process. When I was looking for another property to buy , she notified me right away when a house meeting our criteria came on the market and got us in to see the house and helped us write an offer. The offer was accepted quickly before anyone else could make an offer. I’m sure if she hadn’t moved so quickly there would have been multiple offers and we would not have been able to get it at the price we did. I will definitely be contacting Debra again for my real estate needs. I would also recommend her to anyone looking for someone to help them buy or sell their home.

Debra was a wonderful, patient, knowledgeable Real Estate professional. She thoroughly answered the many questions I had, as a first time home buyer. She made wonderful referrals and was not pushy through the process. She walked me through many homes, day and evening hours. I was very lucky to have found Debra and will continue to refer & use her in the future.

We were fortunate to have an agent so responsive and familiar with the Syracuse market. Our sale involved an old house, dead of winter, and business conducted between New York and California. Debra demonstrated her skill in a short sale and representing our interests in all business actions.

Thank you Debra! Nancy Mitchell White

My wife and I have worked with Deb over 20 years. She helped my wife through the process of buying a house. We again used Deb for both purchasing and selling two other homes. We recommended her to some friends who both bought and sold houses. Our friends were extremely happy with Deb. I recently bought a rental property and was happy with the service. I would recommend Deb due to her knowledge and expertise. Thanks.

We’re so glad we made the decision to use Debra as our Buyer’s Agent — she found us exactly what we were looking for. Her knowledge and experience was invaluable — in fact, we bought the first home that she pulled up online during our initial meeting, one that we might not otherwise have considered. Moreover, she was genuinely warm, responsive to all questions, and a pleasure to deal with. We really couldn’t have asked for more and would recommend her highly to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Working with Deb was a dream come true. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the Syracuse area. She laid out all of the steps we needed to take to sell our house. It took us ONLY 4 days to sell our house!! I highly recommend choosing Deb to help sell your house, she will get it done!!

I have had the pleasure of using Debra for the buying and selling of 5 different real estate transactions over the past twenty five years. Debra’s knowledge and expertise in the local real estate market is unmatched. What really sets Debra apart from her peers is the personal attention that she so tirelessly gives to her clients. During each and every transaction she treated me as though I was her only client. You will be in the most capable of hands if you put your trust in Debra for your real estate needs. Pat Malley

Deb was extremely helpful if finding a first home for me and my wife. She listened to our description of our wants and needs for purchasing our first home. Deb diligently searched our chosen area an was able to match a listing to our needs. We are happy in our first home and would go back to Deb if we ever want to trade up to a different home.

My experience with Deb was a very positive one. I was selling a house on an unusual lot (read: difficult to sell – not kid friendly in a subdivision of family homes). Deb had a a good deal of useful advice for making the house as appealing as possible and had numerous contacts at her disposal to help me carry out my updates. I was able to find a buyer, but by that time I had already moved out of the area. Deb went above and beyond to get the sale completed, and it wasn’t an easy process. She coordinated multiple fixes/mitigations on my behalf and was excellent about keeping me up to date on all actions to the house and progress on required work for the sale. Deb knows the market in Syracuse, and she’ll go the extra mile for you. Highly recommended!

There is so much to say about Deb Lawrence…Deb has sold two homes for me and was up front on anything she thought might improve the sale. Her knowledge of the market in my area was spot on. I wanted to set the price of my homes higher then what she suggested. She gave me the opportunity to start at the higher end, but in the end, she was completely right. The time she took to take pictures and to do the virtual tour for advertising my homes were beautiful. Questions that I had were responded to almost immediately. I never had to wait more than an hour for a response from her. Open houses were set up immediately so there was no lag time in getting it out there. Deb is a top notch realtor who knows her market area, pricing of your home, what needs to be done before it even goes on the market, and patience. She works with you to get the best price for your home. Deb sold my first home in 3 days (2009) and my second home in just 3 weeks (2014). When it states that she has 28 years of experience, she has that and so much more. I would never put my home into the hands of any other realtor than Deb Lawrence. If you are looking for someone that has YOUR best interest, Deb Lawrence is your go to realtor. No one else will give you the professional service that Deb does.

Debbie helped in a great many ways. Helping set a realistic price, talking 3 other siblings into a sensible price. Also when a deal fell through Debbie helped negotiate a new deal with a new buyer. She also worked to get another interested party to help bring the price up. She also helped with a third negotiator who may have ruined the whole deal by not being entirely truthful with her offer. She steered us to the more realistic conclusion of the deal.

Debra is very thorough and follows thru from beginning to end. She is knowledgeable about the area, although she seems to be knowledgeable about most areas in the Syracuse area. She always returned my calls and always let me know when another realtor would be showing my house and the exact time. When it was time for the closing, she kept me informed every step of the way. When she could not be there for a day or two, she had a very knowledgeable person on call. If I was to purchase or sell another house, I definitely would contact Debra.

Deb was very easy to work with. She was friendly, professional, aware of financial institutions’ requirements. She went the extra mile to secure the sale of my house. I would highly recommend her.
