Testimonials for Debbie Handy

April 21, 2010

Dear Mr. Burris

I am writing you to commend the outstanding efforts of your agent, Debbie Handy.  Recently, my husband Sukhdev and I bought a house in Yuba City.  I feel compelled to write to you regarding Mrs. Handy, as her professionalism and compassion for our needs gave us an amazing home buying experience, and all because she happened to be showing a home we looked at.  Debbie offered to keep u on her email list and forward us any information regarding possible homes in the area that met our criteria.  Her diligence led to us finding the home of our dreams.

Debbie explained the entire process to us from looking at the house, to putting in a bid for the house, to the final inspections, etc. She put this rather overwhelming process in terms that even my fourteen year old daughter could understand.  My husband, like many home buyers, had many questions.  Debbie always answered them with a smile on her face regardless of how many times we asked.  When it came to negotiating items in the purchase of our home, Debbie’s help was invaluable.  We never felt that she was just trying to make a sale or ignore our needs.  Debbie is a tremendous asset to your company.  We are recommending her to all our friends because she is truly the best!

 

Thank you

Mrs. Baljinder Dhillon

Brad,

Recently I completed the purchase of a house in Yuba City with Debbie Handy as my agent.  I would like to take a minute of your time to say how much I appreciated having Debbie as my agent.

The buying process took several months during which time I made several offers and saw untold number of properties.  Debbie was always available to show me houses and always either knew the details of the sale or would get back to me the same day on any questions I would have.  I was especially impressed by her extensive knowledge of the different sales whether it was by owner, foreclosure or short sale. She also was able to put me in contact with many people who had information I was seeking in regards to the houses.  Debbie just seemed to know so many people and have tons of contacts.

 

I honestly believe that if it weren’t for Debbie I probably would not have purchased a property.  She has enormous patience and a great way of keeping you on tract throughout this difficult process.  She gave me great advice during the negotiation process which was invaluable.

Again, I feel very fortunate to have had Debbie as my agent and I hope you value her as much as I do.

 

Sincerely,

Jim Kearns

Hello Mr. Burris,

My name is Karen Parry and I had the honor of having Debbie Handy list my home.  Debbie took a very scary experience and made it very easy on me and my family.  She kept in close contact with me and was there for all my thousands of questions. Debbie walked us thru from beginning to end, keeping me updated on when the house was showing and any comments or suggestions that may have been made.  I would highly recommend Debbie to all my friends.  I appreciated Debbie’s honesty and know that this reflects back on to the office as well.  You truly have  a great person working with you.

Hi Brad,

My name is Ann and I want to say what a great Realtor you have in Debbie Handy.  I live out of town and had a house in Yuba City that I was no longer able to rent out.  It was not going to sell for what I owed on it and tried working with my bank.  From my point of view, they were not very cooperative and basically told me that I had to short sell it.  I called Debbie as she had tried to sell the house 3 years ago.  She said that she would handle everything and did it with a smile.  This short sale was very hard on me, as I take care of my obligations but was unable to do so due to being laid off and now I am under employed.  

Debbie took care of everything and I am so grateful to her.  I mean she took care of everything, I never spoke to the bank.  She kept me informed of everything that was happening and reminded me that the situation was nothing that I did wrong.  I don’t know how to repay her for her knowledge and professionalism other than to let you know that without her, I could not have gotten through this.

Sincerely,

Ann

Dear Mr. Burris,

The purpose of this letter is to commend the professional effort of Debbie Handy who was the listing agent on my mother’s home in Yuba City.

From our initial meeting with Debbie, as a walk-in to your office, through the listing period and ultimate sale of the home, Debbie displayed the highest degree of professionalism.  She not only kept us informed during the entire process, but went out of her way to assist us in responding to our requests and providing access to our subcontractors.  As we live in Roseville, this effort reduced our logistical conflicts.  Debbie’s conduct was always upbeat, yet realistic, in dealing with sensitive issues such as current values in the area and the home itself.

We are pleased to commend her work and would not hesitate to refer her to others.

Sincerely,

Bob and Angela Nielebeck

Mr. Burris

Last Friday, my husband and I closed escrow on Pheasant Drive in Yuba City with Debbie Handy as our sellers agent, and I would like to pass along my highest compliments on her performance.  We have bought and sold 5 houses in 3 different cities over the last 20 years and I have to say the process has never been quicker, easier and more pleasant.  Debbie gave us good advice from the very beginning on how to state the house and which improvement to make, and when we decided on an asking price, she wisely convinced us to increase it by $10,000.

And she was so responsive.  Every email or text question I sent was answered immediately.  In fact, I sent a couple of emails late at night, not expecting an answer until the next day, only to find that Debbie had responded five minutes later! (She and Jayne Silveira actually had at least one email exchange at almost 10:00pm to respond to my question about escrow closing.

Because we live in Southern California, we had to ask Debbie to take care of miscellaneous items that came up.  She handled everything we needed from meeting the mini-blind installer to overseeing the completion of the carpet installation, to putting down a throw rug at the front door to protect the new carpet.  Whatever we needed, no matter how big or small, she took care of it.

The house was on the market for just one week, sold for over the asking price and closed escrow in less than a month.  I am convinced we never could have sold it that quickly or for that much money without Debbie’s help.  It was a pleasure working with her.

Hi Brad,

I just wanted to send you a note to let you know about the business experience that I had with one of your agents, Debbie Handy. She just helped my brother and I on an extremely difficult short sale on my mother’s house.  The reverse mortgage people had filed a notice of default and had scheduled a courthouse sale and Debbie took the bull by the horns and was able to put together a deal in a very short period of time. She did an outstanding job, was easy to work with and had a great positive attitude when I thought things were going to fall apart.  I cannot say enough kind words about her.  I hope to work with her again.  She is definitely an asset to your company, and I would recommend her to anyone.  Please convey this to her, I really appreciate everything that she did.

Thank you

Sincerely

Garth

Dear Mr. Burris,

I recently purchased a home through Debbie Handy and would like to take a minute to express my gratitude for her outstanding service throughout the first time home buying process.

I first contacted Debbie regarding a home she was selling in the RoyoRancher area back in April.  The home was already in contract but she offered to wirk with me to find another home.  From that point on, she was absolutely amazing.  As a first time home buyer and single woman, I knew very little about the process and was at times, nervous and worried.  She always walked me throught the steps, answered my many text message, and made me feel comfortable.  But aside from me, she also made a great impression on my parents who were involved with the search and mortgage broker, Mark Doering.  All of which have praised her for being easy to work with and an all around true professional.

Now that the process is over (It took 3 months to find the right home and another 3 months for the short sale to close), I believe the three most important qualities a great realtor should have are honesty, respect for the buyers budget and to not pressure someone to buy.  Debbie has all of these qualities and more.  I couldn’t be more satisfied with how everything turned out and would recommend her to anyone.  She truly made this process enjoyable and stress free.

Sincerely

Virginia Garcia

Brad,

Let me take a few moments to express my pleasure in working with your company and especially “my agent” in the purchase of a home in Plumas Lake.  From the first minute I spoke with Debbie she made me feel that I was the only client she had.  She explained the process and difference of buying a short sale home and a foreclosure.  If I had a question I felt very comfortable being able to call her and get an answer.  She was always available for a showing even on a Sunday morning.  The house we purchased on Independence Trail fit our needs to a “T”.  I just want to thank you for the wonderful opportunity and experience my wife and I had working with your organization and if in the future we need your help we will not hesitate to contact you and be rest assured we will tell our friends…

Thanks

Walt Cassi

Dear Mr. Burris,

I wanted to write to let you know about what a positive experience I had working with Debbie Handy, who assisted me in the purchase of my first home.  Being new to the whole experience, and somewhat apprehensive, I really needed a lot of support and reassurance.  I had so many questions and concerns!  Debbie was so patient and reassuring and would always get back to me quickly whenever I emailed her or left a phone message.  She answered all my questions clearly and helped me learn a lot about the home buying process.  I felt very secure knowing I could count on her to resolve any issue, however minor, that arose.  Her friendly, personable manner put me at ease the moment I met her.  Her kindness and expertise helped make a sometimes stressful process a smooth, enjoyable one.

I will continue to call upon her for any questions I may have in the future.  She has been great and I would absolutely recommend her services to anyone!

Thank you

Ann Masi

Dear Mr. Burris,

It is with great pleasure I send you this note to tell you how much I have appreciated working with your agent, Debbie Handy.  In my book she deserves an A+ for the effort and passion she has for her job.

Debbie has helped me with the purchase of two homes now and I would recommend her to anyone.  Not only does she understand what she is talking about, she has helped me greatly to understand the processes and dynamics that go along with the purchase and sale of real estate.

Debbie follows up with every question and has been very flexible to show properties on my schedule.

In this world, you need to become friends before you can do business and Debbie Handy is now and will always be a good friend.

You are lucky to have her in your employment.

Should you or any customer want a referral for Debbie, I would be please to do it.

Respectfully,

Keith Lawrie
