Testimonials

I could write one thousand words describing Debra and how wonderful and professional she is but if I do that I will probably end up saying about her what other satisfy homeowners or home buyer say about their average agent. This is not how I want to describe Debra Whitfield. Instead, I will tell you a short story, thus you can understand the type of real estate agent Debra is. I was a property owner to 2 homes in the Charleston, SC area for about 10 yrs. while leaving on another state 1000 miles away. During these 10 yrs, I deal with most of the most popular brokerage in the area. Wether, I was renting my home, fixing it, or eventually selling them because I couldn't bear to deal anymore with what I believe is a common practice in the area "dishonesty and unprofessionalism". Again, while I was away and relying on the average local RE agents and Brokerage I have agents that stole from me, used my homes as a free motel, trash my home and even abandon it while in contract. Yes, I know what you are thinking by now, maybe I was the problem. But, no I wasn't. Most of these agents, I never even met in person, I just hired them over the phone thinking they were professional people because they have a real estate license with a good internet profile and under the umbrella of a popular real estate brokerage. All I'm saying is be aware of dishonest agent in Charleston, SC. I met Debra in August of 2015 after another horrible experience where my home was trash and abandoned. Within a week, Debra team fix and clean my home. A week after listing with her I have dozen of showing and offers. Once, we found the right buyer Debra negotiated the deal with honesty and professionalism. I could write forever, but let me tell you, in all Charleston, SC you would never find a more knowledgeable, professional, dedicated, fair and honest Real Estate Agent than Debra Whitfield. Thank you Debra for all hard work and efforts, God Bless you. JC Rodriguez
Debra is a true professional. She managed our expectations and guided us through the home selling process flawlessly. Not only did we sell our home for what we wanted, we were under contract within a couple weeks and closed less than 48 hours after our renters moved out. All this was a direct result of Debra's know-how and diligence. Jennifer Hadac
Debra was efficient, organize and all over it. My house was sold within days of listing with her. Gary J
Debra Whitfield is a 5 star agent. She went above and beyond to help myself and my parents buy a lot, build a BEAUTIFUL home, even attended walk throughs when we were unable to as we were 1000 miles away. Her integrity and time accompanied with her knowledge and understanding of the purchase, planning, the building process through to our closing was particularly comforting to us. I highly recommend Debra Whitfield as an agent and can attest to her undeniable work ethic and ability to get the job done in a most timely and efficient manner. Barbara, Carol and Bill C.
