Actual Reviews from Deb's Clients:
Deb handled both the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our new home. Her expertise and advice were invaluable in ensuring that we got the best price possible and that everything went as smoothly as possible. It had been a long time since we had bought or sold a home and Deb took quite a bit of time to answer the many questions we had and to handle the inevitable minor bumps in the road calmly and always with a positive attitude. Anyone who can keep me calm during a simultaneous purchase and sale deserves my highest recommendation which I give without hesitation. - Brian L.
Deb not only covered the basics of selling a home with exceptional professionalism and knowledge, she provided lots of extra sales add ons like a beautiful notebook to present the house, staging the house, lots of advertising and social media marketing. And, she provided an extensive amount of extra help as I had moved out the state before the house sold. Her effort went well beyond what she earned in commission. She went out of her way to help me. She's a lovely lady. - Lyle H.
Deb O'Hanlon is an unusual realtor. She is fully knowledgeable about the ins and out so her business, AND she does her work with exceptional compassion and dedication to her clients. She helped a dear friend of mine who had unconventional housing needs locate and purchase a place that was affordable and appropriate, and did so within a a short window of time. She aslo has been a valuable consultant for me when I had some questions about my housing situation, and needed someone that I could trust. I highly recommend her to anyone needing support around purchase or sale of real property. -Sandy P.
Deb has been a dream. She's incredibly down to earth, honest, easily accessible, gives phenomenal advice and recommendations, and efficiently communicates. As first time homebuyers we were expecting obstacles and setbacks, but this has hands down been effortless, and 99.9% of that has been down to having picked the right Realtor. If you want a painless process, a beautiful home, and a realtor that guides you through all the stages of home buying, then Deb is your agent. Phenomenal experience! Without a shred of doubt, we know she will remain our Realtor for all future sales and purchases. - Matt C.
We listed my elderly mother's house with Deb and she guided us through the process, making it as painless and efficient as possible. The process was further complicated because my mother now lives with us out of state, and the septic system had to be replaced, which occurred very close to the closing date due to permit requirements. Deb kept track of all the little things that needed to be completed prior to the sale and frequently offered to meet contractors, pick up plans and permits, etc. which really helped since we live in another state. Deb had many helpful suggestions for minor changes that would improve sale-ability and it payed off as the house sold in only 3 days for above asking price after receiving multiple offers. Deb was recommended to us by a family friend and I have already recommended her to my sister-in-law. - Andy B.
Deb represents the best possible combination of expertise, professionalism and support. She guided me through this most tumultuous time as I bought, sold and moved in a very short timeframe. With her sharp insight and very thoughtful support, she assisted in finding the perfect place, making the offer, negotiating price and helped keep me on track during packing up and moving. She made this so much easier than previous house purchases and has kept in touch, always willing to advise me on future transactions. Thank you so much Deb! -Susan S.
We initially contacted Deb (whom we have known from musical circles for quite a while) about buying a condo in Jamaica Plain, Boston. Realizing that this was a highly specialized market, she did some research on our behalf and referred us to an excellent agent who lives just a couple of blocks from the unit we wound up buying. He helped us put together a winning bid at a fair price in an extremely competitive seller's market. With this referral, Deb placed our interests above her own by recognizing that we needed someone who dealt with sales in JP on a daily basis. If we were looking to buy or sell a home in a location with which she is familiar, Deb would be the first call we make. - John L.
I met Deb O Hanlon over 10 years ago while looking for a home for a friend of mine. I was very impressed by her knowledge and professionalism at that first meeting that I kept her in mind to be my agent when I needed one. Shortly after that I was in the market for my own home and Deb was my choice to help me navigate the waters. Her patience and expertise helped negotiate the home I am in now. She has continued to keep me posted about the real estate market through all these years and as of 2 weeks ago with her help we closed on a second property, an investment condominium. As I get ready to upgrade out of my present home to a new home I will be having Deb selling my old home and guiding towards my new home. I would not hesitate to recommend Deb to anyone. She has helped my daughter and my brother with their real estate needs,too. Not only is she intelligent, trustworthy and extremely capable but her back up office team is a highly professional organization. You will be happy with the whole experience from start to finish with Deb O Hanlon. - Joanne T.
