From beginning to end, Debbie da Silva, of BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY home services in St. Augustine Beach, FL, made the buying of our new home and selling of our previous property completely worry free and actually fun. She was personally involved in every aspect of the process from developing a strategy, understanding our needs, helping with sound and creative solutions for problems we encountered. Debbie has the problem solver mindset.
She has a high degree of self-motivation; she is honest and has impeccable integrity with energy and tenacity. Our dealings with other agents and potential buyers / sellers required her aggressive marketing techniques for us to be successful. She was the master of working smart; she knew how to put in the right amount of time and money and did whatever was necessary to close our deal. She has a real interest in houses / architecture, which we think, gives her an advantage over other agents and brokers.
Debbie understands the local and surrounding housing markets. She was a very quick study in the area we were interested in moving to because of her network of connections not only in terms of agents, but also appraisers, brokers, home inspectors, mortgage loan officers and potential buyers and sellers.
Probably the most attractive trait about our experience with Debbie was her engaging personality coupled with passion for the industry, attention to detail and her knowledge of the latest information in her professional field. Her professional development and continuing education allows her to stay at the forefront of the real estate business. She teaches real estate at a local college, which speaks volumes to her expertise and knowledge of the industry.
We have bought seven and sold six homes. If we had to do it again we would call her immediately. We always recommend Debbie to anyone who is even considering buying or selling real estate. We have become friends and still stay in touch. A wonderful person and joy to work with, so if you want the best there is in real estate, in our humble opinion, you should go with Ms. Debbie da Silva.
