Helped me buy home
Debra helped me, as a first time buyer, to understand the entire process of buying a home as well as coaching me on what to look for in a house while allowing my preferences to be foremost. Even after closing when I still need answers to a few questions, I knew I could easily ask. She was very accommodating when it came to viewing homes; if a house came on the market I had to see (when they were going fast), it was very simple to make it happen that day (seller-willing, of course). While buying a home seemed like a daunting task, it was made significantly easier then I expected and not once did I feel like I was simply a commission. To anyone buying a home, experienced or not, I cannot recommend Debra more. Less ... More

Debra was great! She listed our home and it sold within a month. She listened to what we were looking for in our new home and was very helpful and responsive throughout the entire buying and selling process. We definitely would recommend her.

We found Debra online and what drew me to her was all the great reviews her clients had written! Now that we have known Debra since December and she has helped us sell one house and search for another, I am so excited to be able to write another great review for her! Debra was super helpful to us as we sold our first home. She knows the process in and out and can answer any questions you may have. Since this was our first time selling, we were constantly seeking her advice and input. We are now continuing to work with Debra as we seek our 'dream home' to grow into. She is great with working around your schedule and quickly answers texts, emails, and phone calls. Debra is not pushy at all when it comes to things like setting prices or negotiating. I really believe she is genuine and is looking out for her client's best interest. I would recommend Debra to anyone I know! Less ... More

I originally put my house on the market about 2 1/2 years ago. Because the market was in such bad shape, and I had to move to Chicago for a job immediately, Debra helped me to find tenants so I could rent the house until the market improved. She found the most wonderful tenants, who took incredible care of my house. Once the market improved, we put the house back on the market. The house had a lot of showings, and we had an offer in 30 days. Debra did an amazing job in selling my house. I live in the Chicago area and the house is in Indianapolis. She took on a great deal to help me with the process, including arranging repairs, etc. Debra shows a genuine care and desire to not just sell the house, but sell it with the best possible outcome for all involved. I was very fortunate to have Debra sell my house. Less ... More

I would highly recommend Debra; in fact, I already have! My fiance and I were first-time home-buyers when we first met Debra, We recently closed on that home, and because we purchased a foreclosure, there were several "hiccups" in the process along the way. These were in no way her fault-that just tends to be the nature of the beast with bank-owned properties (and the brokerage firm which managed this particular home was not exactly customer service-oriented, to say the least). Debra talked us through the process the entire time, answered any and all questions we had, and was always extremely easy to get in touch with, and very responsive. We felt as though she always had our interest at heart, and she helped us talk through issues that arose in order to make informed decisions. We never felt "pressured" to make any specific decisions, and I think that, along with her knowledge of the process make Debra stand out among a LARGE pool of real estate professionals. I cannot say enough positive things about her. Less ... More

It has been a pleasure working with Debra. She listed and sold the property I obtained through REO really quick. She was always responsive to my inquiries and was very considerate. She's immensely knowledgable about the local real estate market and has lots of connections to local investors and home buyers. I would not hesitate to work with her again in the future.

Debra was such an asset to us during our search for a house, and the building of our new home. I couldn't imagine not having her as our agent. She was easy to reach, she responded fast to our concerns and questions, she was a joy to be around. I recommend her to everyone I hear is looking to buy or sell.

Debra was very knowledgable with every aspect of the home buying process. She found properties that were exactly what we were looking for. With Debra we didn't waste time looking at homes that did not meet our requirements. Debra was always very quick to respond to any type of communication we sent her. We were on a very limited time frame and she went out of her way to show us around 50 properties in a 3 week time frame. I honestly think we would have gone crazy had it not been for Debra's expertise. I would highly recommend Debra to anyone who is looking for their next home. Less ... More

Debra had the listing for my daughters house. We noticed she had gotten many showings in a short period of time. This impressive work on a property listed made us want to try her to sell our home. So she presented us the pricing review for the neighborhood. We listed with her after the very first meeting, the 20th of that month, in just few days she had completed all the marketing things that start the process. We had 8 showings by the 10th of the following month. On the 10th we had a great offer and we were out of town. She handled the offer and counter offer for us contingent our signature. Once inspection was done, we had the closing on the 21st of the same month. This truly has been the best real estate transaction we've ever been a part of. Debra is definitely the go to person in our area! Less ... More

Debra was a dream come true to a first home buyer. I was uncertain of the process and Debra helped me every step of the way. She was on top of my mortgage company and made sure that my home closed on time. Debra also made sure I got the best deal for my home and recommended an amazing inspector and other services. I would recommend Debra to anyone!

Debra helped us sell our condo as we relocted out of state. We chose her over other agents based on the recommendation of a friend. She had a great presentation from the start, and has been professional, helpful, and very patient through the entire process. The condo sale was a long and frustrating process, and Debra kept us constantly updated, never made us feel bad for asking 'silly' questions, and went out of her way to make things as easy as possible for us. I would recommend Debra if you want a professional, personable, available agent for your home buying and selling needs! Less ... More

When we began the home buying process, Debra was the first to assess our needs, understand what we were looking for, and help us vet out properties worth looking at and those not worth the investment and time. After we decided on the property we wanted (and experienced multiple delays and set backs), she never wavered in helping us land our home without showing an ounce of doing as "part of the job." Debra cares for her clients, treats them as if they were dear friends, and will do whatever is in her power to make sure you get into the home of your dreams--so long as your dreams are reasonable. And she's good at making sure you understand reasonable and talking you through the finer points of buying a house. I could spend paragraphs singing Debra's praises but it comes to this: if you want to be treated as a person, not viewed as someone's commission, and given the respect, courtesy and time needed when buying a home, Debra is your agent. Not once did I feel she held anything back from us or got fed up with our incessant questions (and the hassles we encountered in purchasing our first home). I can't recommend her enough. Less ...

My experience with Debra was incredible. Debra was always ready to help in any way she could. When we found the condominium that we wanted to see, she got us in to see it within 15 minutes of calling her, and we made the offer that same day. As the process continued with the mortgage representative, she was always there to answer questions. I received countless e-mails, text messages, and phone calls keeping me informed on how things were progressing. Debra stayed in contact with the seller's representative continually to make sure the inspection items were being completed. I have bought and sold a couple homes in the past, and I have to say that by far Debra Altman-Foley far exceeded all other agents that I've dealt with. It's nice to know that there are hard-working people still out there willing to go the extra mile to give great service. Less ... More

Debra was very helpful in finding and purchasing the house we eventually purchased. We were living in Northwest Indiana and we're looking at homes in the Fishers and Noblesville area, around 145 miles and 2.5 hours away. So we had only certain dates to travel and she was very accommodating with her schedule to show us the homes we were interested in. She kept us updated on the repairs after each one was completed, and made very useful recommendations. We would definitely recommend Debra as a realtor agent and would contact her if we would ever need her services again. Less ... More

Debra was not only our relator when whe bought our new house but she has also helped us find tennants for our rental property. I get excited everytime I hear of a friend that needs a realtor because I get a chance to recommend Debra to them. She saved us tons of money when we bought our house due to her exceptional research skills. When combine her vast real estate knowledge with her fierce determination you have a recipe for sucess that will ensure all your needs are met. My wife and I sat in awe at times after witnessing her outstanding negotiation skills. We will always use Debra when we have a real estate deal. We would be lost without her Less ... More

Debra came highly recommended from a trusted source and she did not disappoint. We followed her advice through the entire process (updates to help the home, staging, negotiations, etc.). Her advice definitely helped sale our home quickly and for a reasonable price.

I have worked with Debra on two separate occasions, including purchasing our first home and then selling it to move to Georgia. Her knowledge of the community we were looking in and understanding of what buyers want to see is second to none. She is always available to be reached with concerns and questions. The flexibility she creates in her schedule to be reached at all hours of the day by phone, text, and email made both of our transactions amazingly smooth. I would recommend Debra to all of my friends if they are looking by buy or sell property. In fact, we asked Debra if she would be able to clone herself, so we can use her to find a home in a different state. Unfortunately, science has not progressed far enough. Less ... More

She was responsive to our concerns and questions during the process and the result speaks for itself. Our home sold in just 7 days.

She knew just the right questions to ask and was constantly mindful of what was important to us. She found us the right home at the right price and then continued to coach us through the process.

Debra did an awesome job for us! She was very professional even in the hardest of times with the million requests from our buyers and their very incompetent Realtor.

Debra helped my husband and I sell our home and assisted in the purchasing process of the home we were building. She was wonderful throughout the entire process! She is very professional, knowledgable, personable and reliable. She made herself incredibly available to me for communication whenever needed. She hired a professional photographer to take the photographs of our home for our MLS sheet, and I am convinced that helped sell our home! We had several showings call in immediately, and had a purchase contract in place within a week! We had a few bumps in the road with the buyers of our old house (in the sale of their home), but Debra did an amazing job at going out of her way to make sure we were able to close. When we had meetings with our builder, she always made herself available to join us to provide her expertise. I have recommended her to several of my friends who have mentioned selling their home. She is wonderful at what she does! Less ... More

Debra has helped us twice, now. We relocated from out-of-state a year ago. We sought a rental home, and were in town for exactly 5 days to find one. We had a HORRIBLE time finding a realtor that would make time for us. Then we found Debra, when we had just 2 days left. She rescued us, working diligently, for long hours, with great communication. Of course we retained her card as we knew she was our realtor of choice for purchase. Now it is a year later, and we are moving out of the rental and buying a home.The hardest part of this experience has been finding the right home, to suit our very particular desires. We have been picky. And she has been wonderful. Debra made an effort to understand what we're seeking, and provided house listings, multiple times, refining it each time (and never repeating rejected listings like other, lazy realtors did in my home state) that met the need, as well as following up on listings we provide. She is super-responsive, even at late hours, and she is a great communicator. We ask for input frequently because she is so knowledgable. I appreciate that she gives honest feedback, even when it isn't what we want to hear, and she's diplomatic about it. She advocates for us, is willing to volunteer input, though isn't pushy if we are unresponsive. Debra is networked! She has a Person for everything (again only if we are interested), and they seem to work the same long hours she does. For example, we already had a home loan arranged, but her person gave us a better deal AND worked on the weekend so we could submit our bid first thing on Monday. Her Persons are living up to the great reputation that she has earned. I've recommended her to all my co-workers, and I'm happy to refer her to strangers, too, because she is a gem. When/if we eventually sell the house we are buying now, Debra will be the one we contact. Less ... More

Debra is a true professional and a top notch real estate agent! I'm in the military and have bought homes all over the US. Debra is hands down the best real estate agent I've had the great pleasure of working with. She's responsive, very informed about the neighborhoods, extremely knowledgeable about the process and she has been AMAZING to work with. I had a very short timeline to find a house, and had to fly in town for only 4 days to find and purchase a home. Debra was organized and as soon as I arrived had 11 houses lined up for us to look at. I decided on the best home for me on the first day of my trip! Debra worked tirelessly to ensure I was more than satisfied with my choice, and has gone above and beyond to work the negotiation to purchase the property. If you're looking for an extremely responsive, very talented and knowledgeable real estate agent, Debra is the one you want! Less ... More

If given the opportunity I would not hesitate to recommend Debra. Not only was she knowledgeable of the area but during the sales cycle she became a trusted adviser and someone whom I looked to for advice and leadership on how best to buy a house. She asked questions that I would not have thought to ask and was a key component in the final negotiation. Having bought and sold a number of houses through the years I can honestly say Debra has outshone every other agent I have worked with and I look forward to working with her in the future. Less ...
