Your Realtor® for Life!
Selling what is most likely your biggest asset is a major life event. I can appreciate that change can be challenging for most of us. I would be happy to take a look at your home, provide an honest market analysis and review my customized plan to transition that home to new owners as efficiently as possible. I take great pride in my attention to detail and no detail is ever too small.
I will provide hands-on, personal service in marketing, negotiating, and closing on your property including:
- Comprehensive market analysis of properties in your area including:
On Market, Under Agreement, Sold, and Expired MLS listings
- Prominent internet and social media marketing exposure
- Professional photographs and virtual tour

- Review and negotiation of offer(s)
- Verification of buyer's mortgage preapproval
- Attend buyer's Home Inspection

Where to start? Call me for a no obligation consultation. We can meet at my office, talk about your property requirements, and come up with a customized plan to get you in your new home. Every transaction is different in some way but starting with a budget, including a solid preapproval from a lender that will GET THE JOB DONE is critical.
I will be with you every step of the way:
- Property visits including feedback on the property with my critical eye
- Full disclosure of public records and comparable sales data prior to making an offer
- Preparing and Negotiating the offer

Debbie was not only helpful but caring and sensitive to the needs of our mother in the sale of her house and the purchase of a new home for her. Debbie worked very closely with her and was very professional and understanding of her needs and wishes.
Thanks to Debbie, my mother has started a whole new life and adventure in her home. (Stacey R, Quincy/Squantum Seller, Sept, 2014)
Having purchased our prior home with Debbie as our Realtor, we knew how excellent she was. This time we did a dual transaction, and again we could not have asked for a better agent! Debbie is a higher level of professional. Her priority is your real estate transaction and this is evident by how hard she works for you. She is highly organized and always punctual. Debbie is on top of things and is great with communication. She is knowledgeable about the market and puts you at ease during the entire process. You might think all real estate agents are the same, but Debbie is exceptional. We cannot stress how glad we were to have her represent us in our transactions. We had a deadline to sell our property and not only did she sell it quickly, Debbie got us the price we needed! She was also great with the little things and went above and beyond numerous times throughout the process. I wholeheartedly recommend her as one of the best! Thank you Debbie!

I have used Debbie twice for real estate transactions. Both times she displayed a superior knowledge of the local market, excellent attention to details, and the ability to â€œhandleâ€ all of the interactions necessary to expediently close the deal. She is easy to work with and provides excellent insights. This Agent is different; she is definitely a cut-above!

With Debbie's help, buying our first home was a great experience. From day one, Debbie took the time (often outside of normal business hours to accommodate our hectic schedules) to explain the buying process, answer our questions, and lend her advice and support. At every step of the way- from starting our hunt to signing paperwork at the closing months later- we knew Debbie would be accessible and attentive. She responded to all of our emails immediately, and is SUPER organized (nothing was held up due to an overlooked document or missing signature). I would highly recommend Debbie and look forward to working with her again in the future. (November, 2012 BUYER)
Debbie was a big help in getting us into our new home. We started our search with her when I was about five months pregnant and desperately needed to find something as we were living in a one-bedroom condo. She listened to us and asked the right questions to figure out exactly what we were looking for. She was very patient with us as we turned out to be pretty demanding clients. She was very accommodating, meeting with us on Good Friday and Easter Sunday to help make sure we got into the house we wanted. She made the process for this first-time homebuyer much less scary than I expected it to be. I would definitely recommend working with Debbie to anyone. Lang Family, Braintree, May 2012
Debbie is amazing. She has a huge network, and she was able to find a wonderful rental for me and my family in only a couple of days. She went above and beyond what I could have expected in an agent - not only before she found us our place, but also afterwards, as she dealt with the lease and the landlord. I can't recommend her highly enough. Thank you, Debbie! delvyncase Client, Renter
"My husband and I had a great experience working with Debbie when we bought our first home. We had many questions and are very detail-oriented and Debbie was always patient and willing to discuss everything with us, even if we called her multiple times in one day. She is extremely knowledgeable about the home-buying process is able to negotiate well with the other party. She did a great job facilitating communication between everyone who was involved, and making sure that we were taking the necessary steps to keep the process moving. We happily recommend Debbie for anyone else looking for a home buying agent!" Brad and Becca Lewis, Hull, MA

"After several months of trying to sell my condo Debbie suggested a short sale. With Debbie’s assistance I was able to successfully sell and pass on my condo as a short sale in less than four months. I’m very grateful to Debbie – she never gave up and stuck with me throughout the entire process." Seller, Marina Bay
"I just finished a short sale with Debbie Riley and I have to tell you that no one could have done a better job on this file than she did. She was right on top of every detail, which made everyone's experience as pleasant and stress free as possible. Without this attention to detail it is very possible that this transaction may not have happened. Debbie obviously doesn't own a watch, because based on the emails, it seems like she was on duty on this file 24-hours a day. She is really a terrific broker and represents you very well. I know you must feel lucky to have her in your organization." – David Spillane, Esq.

She was patient, thorough, dependable and knowledgeable and helped me to remain relaxed and confident as I worked toward purchasing my first home. I have absolutely no doubt that I would not have been able to close on my first home if it was not for Debbie. Even when the obstacles seemed insurmountable, Debbie remained confident and went above and beyond her job description to ensure that I received the best service and that I was able to close on my new home. She was willing to go the extra mile to help me buy my first home and I am extremely grateful for her knowledge, dedication and persistence. I could not be happier in my new home and I have Debbie to thank for it! " - Amy Smith, Weymouth

"Debbie was the BEST! We first contacted her last year when the market was falling out and after seeing a few properties, we decided to postpone our house search.

We will miss her terribly...I would recommend her to anyone!
