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.
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.
Debra was efficient, organize and all over it. My house was sold within days of listing with her.
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.

Debra was great!! I was so impressed with her support, suggestions and patience. We talked about my dream of moving to South Carolina and she gave me the courage to start the path. Although we'd always shared the dream, my husband was hesitant to leave everyone behind. We finally started the process of selling our place in WI and looking for a house. After 1 1/2 years of going back and forth, loosing a couple places we liked and being up and down, we sold our house. Immediately I called Debra and she came through with the perfect place. We are so happy to be in Charleston area and we love Debra!

Debra specializes in relocation for elderly people and was a blessing to me and my mother in the selling of her home. Being out of town, I leaned constantly on Debra's knowledge of the local market and her many years of experience in pricing and negotiation. She was a wealth of information! Her caring, professional manner and dedication made working with her a pleasure. I give her my highest recommendation.

We hadn't a clue where to begin the search for senior housing. We started with a geographic search on Google for senior housing and found dozens of websites- mostly advertisements or placement agencies offering to help us find the best options.
At this point, we decided to contact Debra. She was introduced to us through our local Senior Center. As a Seniors Real Estate Specialist, she assisted in laying out all the options we could explore and counseled us through the selling and moving transition.
She was a blessing!!

It was a pleasure speaking with you last year in regards to my mom selling her house and moving back to Charleston.
I wanted to thank you you for speaking positive words over the selling of her house by year end. It sold on the last day of 2013! She will be living with me until I can build her house on my property so we won't be needing your help finding her a place to live. I have your contact information and will refer you for anyone who may need your services in the future.

DREADING THE TRANSITION PROCESS We are all busy people with active lives of our own. When the decision was made to put the folks house on the market and to use the proceeds to fund their rent in a retirement community, we wondered how we would downsize 3,000 square feet of lifelong possessions into a 750 square foot apartment. The entire family dreaded the transition, which proved to be overwhelming and required weekend after weekend of sifting and sorting through four decades of "stuff". In the process, we were delighted to learn about Certified Relocation and Transitional Specialists, Certified Senior Advisors as well as Seniors Real Estate Specialists. These professional agents assisted with the challenges of sizing down, purging, moving and helping to find the ideal independent living situation for our folks. These professionals have had educational training and usually a fair amount of hands-on experience with the unique needs of seniors to assist with a myriad of issues centered around transition. In an age where too many professionals try to be everything to everyone, specialization is an attribute we appreciate.
