Debbi showed us many houses over a three-county area and accommodated our schedules – She was Great! If we are in need of a real estate agent in the future – Debbi will be the first one we will call. John & Karen T.
Great service, very patient, customer focused. Have and will recommend Debbi & Rich to others. -Pat & Ramona D.
Debbi is an extremely knowledgeable person, with tons of experience in real estate. She not only helped me get a great deal on a new home but also through her contacts I was able to get amazing mortgage rate. Debbi is the ultimate professional. She is knowledgeable, helpful, resourceful, and respectful. She guides you through every problem, and even anticipates ones that you haven't thought of and solves those. I have used her for two home sales and one home purchase over the past 20 years and have nothing but positive things to say about her. -Nancy L.
Awesome! Debbi really works hard and did an excellent job of selling my house. She is very professional, knowledgeable and most importantly experienced. She knows the market and help to negotiate a good deal. I'm currently working with her on buying a new house and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area. -Todd H.
I have known Debbi for about 18 years. She has done 1 purchase and 2 sales of homes for me. She is very professional, efficient and extremely pleasant to work with. She is also very accommodating and does her best to assist in all aspects of home buying and selling including providing references for contractors and repair staff. She helped me navigate through a very difficult sale and she did it all with a very good sense of humor and kept up my spirits as well. -Pav
I met Ms. Debbi a few years ago through a friend. I wasn't quite ready to purchase a home yet. There was so much I didn't know at the time. Instead of turning me away, she gave me advice that helped me prepare a little harder for such an exciting yet stressful process. Two years later, I was ready to go. She has been outstanding through every step. She is honest, understanding and will always do what's best for her client. She has such a sweet spirit! I'm already looking forward to working with her in the future. I will be more than happy to refer her to anyone looking to purchase a home. -Jewel S.
We know Debbi for the past 10 years. During this period she has worked with us to buy and sell homes including the one she helped us to sell last week. She is very knowledgeable, honest, ethical and very nice person to deal with. I would highly recommend for any real estate needs. -Sree M.
I highly recommend Debbi Rivero. She helped me sell a home within a week and then was extremely patient with me while I looked for a new home. Debbi took me to see over 30 houses and each time she asked me what I did or didn't like about each house so she could help me focus on what I wanted in my next home. -Barbara K.
Buying a house with Debbi is a pleasure! She is very honest and professional and has great people skills. This is the second time we've went with Debbi for buying a house and we were very happy with both experiences. She helped me through multiple deals before I finally found the house for me. Touring homes was easy and I don't even know how many I went on, but it was always simple to get someone to take me on time always. When I did find a house to put an offer in on, I had a few deals that didn't work out, but she was great during the process, always giving me honest feedback. Working with Debbi made buying my first home easier than I thought and less stressful than what most of my friends experienced when working with a traditional Realtor. I highly recommend Debbi to anyone who is looking for a home. -Siva Bala
We have had the pleasure of knowing debbi for over ten years - she has actually assisted with both a buy/sell and buy/sell again due to our personal situation. You will find Debbi to be an honest, ethical and knowledgeable agent in the area........Debbi is totally available for your individual needs and concerns.....................just absolutely first class in a highly competitive environment......................... -Carol L.
Your review helps others decide on the right agent for them. Please tell others why you recommend this agent As first time buyers and using the VA process, Ms. Rivero was extremely helpful in helping us to purchase our home,. It didn't take long to find our dream home, once she help us determine what was our interest. - Terri D.
Debbi helped me in all aspects of buying my home. She showed me several properties and helped me decide which was best based on my particular circumstances and also with the idea of a home being an investment. She helped with securing a mortgage and movers. She is very easy to work with, trust worthy and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Debbi. -Susan M.
Debbi is very hardworking real estate agent. I was really surprised to see how organized and well prepared she was with her homework prior to showing me around with list of houses. -Kamlesh P.
Debbi excelled in a difficult sale, overcoming many hiccups along the way with on again-off again buyers. In addition to the normal activities of listing and handling the contract paperwork, she took time to oversee repairs cited in the home inspection and otherwise required by buyers. Her on-the-scene assistance was critical, because we live in California. The sale was further complicated in that we need it processed as a tax-free exchange under IRS Code 1031. -Maurice K.
Debbi is the best realtor we could have had when buying our new home. She knew all the processes, is an expert negotiator with the now how of the area where we bought our new home. She provided us with her services with honesty. She was always one step ahead of others in our home buying process. She worked with our bank (and they were great too!!) to provide all the documents on-time. Overall it was an rewarding experience, which made our home buying such a smooth process. -Avinash A.
Debbi helped me buy a home a few years ago and not only was she knowledgeable, helpful, easy to work with and thorough she also has been supportive for years since. -Nat W.
Debbi was exceptional! She worked very hard on the sale of my home and was there for me for the entire process. I can't thank her enough. It was a very positive experience. I would highly recommend Debbi (already have actually), and when I'm ready to buy in the future she will be the realtor for me. -Debbie F.
We met her accidentally in front of the entry door of a house we came to check for availability to buy. She showed the house despite her hurrying, so a few days later we make an offer. However, the house had a serious defect in the house's water system - water pressure was too low. She bargained with owner for a week to fix it, but he rejected the requests and was ready to break the deal at all. Finally, she solve the problem with no extra money for us and met us with a wonderful and high professional "mortgage" agent. He gave us lowest rate in comparing with others, tracked and taught us about all documents, and made the process very short. All time we spent on buying the house (from visiting it first time and signing up a contract) took 1.5 month. We was really happy to work with her! -Vladimir L. We gave her a difficult task: we are coming into town and need to find a house within 72 hours... And she did it
he listened carefully to our needs, selected several homes that she thought would match our needs, and we ended up buying the first one she showed us. She shepherded us through the maze of paperwork and found us an excellent mortgage broker. Debbi is professional, responsive, and honest in her assessments. Overall, an outstanding transaction! -Shawna W.
I would highly recommend Debbi to anyone looking to purchase a home and I would absolutely work with her again! Debbi was very knowledgeable of the area, walked us through the entire buying process and was extremely responsive to our requests and our needs. Additionally, she worked with our schedules and made herself available at times that were convenient for us. Being new to the area, we put our trust in Debbi to meet our requirements for not only the house but also the schools for our daughter. Debbi worked tirelessly for us and met all of these requirements. If someone is looking for an agent to help them through the home buying process, Debbi should be the first choice! -Ted & Beth S.
Dear Richard & Debbi, We would like to thank you for helping us through the most important decision in our lives. When we walked into your office, we never thought we would meet such a nice and helpful couple, who were always willing and eager to answer all of our questions and concerns. On the day of settlement when we walked out of your office, a homeowner, we wee proud to call you our friends. Thank you also for always being encouraging even when things didn’t seem all that great. You said, “Don’t worry- everything will be fine. If it isn’t- we’ll make it fine.” And you did. W trusted you and you NEVER let us down. There were minor finishes to be done to the house two days before the settlement. They were done with time to spare. For this, again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We love our new house and look forward to many happy years together in it. -Sincerely, Kevin M. & Julie Q
We know Debbi Rivero since 1996. We met her at an open house in Elkridge, MD. She helped us to purchase our first home in Laurel, MD. I could sense that she was a real Pro even back then. She understood our needs, concerns, schools, neighborhood, price range, etc. She always told us the positives and negatives of a property and never rushed or pressured us towards a home. We appreciated very much of these qualities and continued to work with her ever since. She helped us to sell our first home in 2002 and at the same time she seamlessly guided us to close our second home within six weeks. She has a good sense of the housing market at any given time and knows how to set a price and close out a deal. Debbi also helped four of my friends in buying homes in Howard County, MD. She is always prompt with questions about home repairs and provides us references to handy man or a Gardner without any hesitation. We are very glad to know such a trustworthy realtor and always glad to recommend her to our friends. -Sreekumar
Debbi is an excellent realtor with many years of experience. She was able to sell my home quickly when other agents could not. I have referred her to many friends over the years and all have been very satisfied with her knowledge and help from the beginning to the end of the process. Since she sold my house over 13 years ago, she continues to stay in touch and provide assistance when asked. -Tim S.
Debbi is a excellent realtor from the beginning to the end she was working every day to get us the house we wanted not to just settle for anything. Debbi has a vast knowledge of the business and also a vast knowledge of how to deal with lenders to assist with financing .Even after the closing Debbi still kept in contact and even now almost 3 years later she still keeps in contact just to make sure everything is ok and if we need anything we can still depend on her .Anybody I know looking for a house I would always refer them to Debbi .She is so personable she does not want to just get you a house she wants to make sure you have a home- Melvin My wife and I were referred to Debbi Rivero by our former next door neighbors who had moved away two years prior. They has a very positive experience with her. Debbi visited with us shortly after we contacted her, walked through our home and made suggestions on low cost upgrades to make our home more attractive to buyers, and brought in a professional to help stage our home. After about two weeks of prep work (fresh paint in a few rooms and carpet cleaning) we put the house on the market. We did everything she and the stager suggested and the house looked great. We had three offers in three days. -Bobby C.
Once she sold our home she worked with us to find just the right house to purchase. It took about two and a half months and walk-throughs of many houses. She met us several times a week to show houses and kept us up-to-date on new listings. She was very patient with us and wanted to make certain we were completely satisfied. We purchased a beautiful home in a great neighborhood that exceeded our expectations; we could not be more pleased. That was in 2002 and we still maintain contact with Debbie. She is always happy to hear from us and we have referred several good friends to her. They all have been very satisfied. To Whom It May Concern, This letter comes to you late, but truly well deserved. I am writing to express my gratitude and thanks to Debbi and Rich Rivero for their tireless work and commitment to helping my family and I find and purchase our beautiful home. The best way to describe my experience of working with these true professionals is to describe my every encounter with them from beginning to end. Got a moment?
Get my point! Kudos to Debbi and Rich for surviving this roller coaster ride. They are truly a class act. Debbi and Rich never complained or grunted and were supportive in any decision I made. However, it doesn’t stop here.
I don’t believe that I can stand anymore generosity from these two. Please know that Debbi and Rich Rivero are truly my heroes and I would be honored to have them as my agents again and would readily refer them to anyone. Terrell W.
Dear Debbi, I thank you so much for all the help you were to me in finding a place that I could afford and remain in my home State, near my friends, family and doctors, etc. I know I was a bit of a pest, but you were always available, helpful and willing to show me places that might interest me. I’m looking forward to my new home. I have been taking boxes over just about every evening, and tomorrow some people from my Bible Study are going to help me and then on Saturday some men from Church are helping to get my furniture moved. I will gladly recommend you to anyone I find is seeking a home in the general area. Thank you again for all your help. -Sincerely, Donna G.
Debbi Rivero recently sold us our home. We would like for you to know that Debbi was not just a realtor, but a person who has touched our lives as well. Before we met Debbi, we were working with another realtor and we felt like we were just another number. Then we met Debbi thru our former landlord. I immediately ended my relationship with the other realtor. They were only interested in working with people who had money. We were drawn to Debbi. Debbi was not that way. Here only interest was finding us the home of our dreams that our pocket could afford. She made our first experience as new home owners a pleasant one. Debbi takes the personal attention in which people need to help put their mind at ease, as well as keeping a professional image of herself. If we hadn’t met Debbi, we would probably still be renters . That is why we would like for you to know that we were in such a bind for time limitations under the circumstances in which we were in and Debbi did everything possible to find us a home. Debbi is a fine example of what being a realtor should be, and we recommend her very highly and look forward to future encounters with her. -Sincerely, Wendy G and Brian A.
It is hard to describe how grateful I am that my house sold as quickly- and with no hassle – as it did. Thank you again for all of your work. You did a splendid job! - Mike K.
In January 1996, I interviewed nine Real Estate agents in an effort to find the right person to sell my townhouse. Of the nine, Debbi Rivero impressed me the most. She possessed all the qualities I was looking for in an agent; self-confidence, honest, knowledge of the existing market, she was punctual and professional and most of all, she made me feel comfortable. Debbi said that she would be able to sell my townhouse in less than eight weeks and for the amount I was asking. She was the only agent to express this level of confidence and only one of two who was willing to attempt to sell my house for the price I was asking. Within the first four weeks I had at least twenty-five showings and in less than eight weeks I had an offer for the price I was asking. I had never imagined that selling a house could be so easy and it was all due to the efforts of Debbi. I honestly feel that none of the other agents that I interviewed could have done what Debbi did in that short a period of time. Debbi was always available to answer my questions and address my concerns (and being a first-time seller, I had plenty), she was patient, friendly and helpful all the way to closing. It was a delight to work with Debbi. I highly recommend her as one of the most competent in her field. – Phil W.
This letter is in reference to Debbi Rivero, who we used as the listing agent to sell our home in Catonsville. We were pleased with here services and would like to let both those who work with her, and future clients know what a good job she did. Our home had been on the market with two previous agents (from other real estate companies) for almost two years. Debbi took over the job, and our house had a contract and was sold within four months. We were very satisfied with the amount of traffic she had come through the house, her advertising, and her professional behavior. We greatly appreciated her services and would be more than happy to provide our references or recommendations to future home buyers and sellers. – Mr. & Mrs. R. Elwell, Jr.
Dear Debbi, I want to tell you again, how much I appreciate all the time and effort you gave me to find my “dream house.” You constantly worked with me to find the perfect home. I know it wasn’t easy since there were so many features I was requesting, not to mention the location in which I wanted to live. You were always gracious, eager to please and pleasant even though this process continued for many, many months. You never became frustrated and were helpful in keeping my hopes raised, as you were so confident that “my” house existed. You were right. Again, thank you for all your valuable time you gave me regardless of the time of day, in keeping me updated with the most current information. In fact, you notified me the very day, my soon to become home went on the market, the very day I signed the contract! That’s what I call very personal treatment. As busy as you always are, you made me feel as thou I was your only customer. Sincerely, Pat J.
