If you ask her a question and she's not certain of the correct answer, she's HONEST about it and advises that she will inquire further about it. She always comes through with the appropriate response and solution. That, to me, speaks to her credibility.
I would have NO reservations about recommending her to a friend or colleague.
Deb Stanitz is amazing. I highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in purchasing a home. She's personable, works FAST, has connections to some of the best contractors, roofers, inspectors ect, and she really knows her way around a basement. In the past five years she's helped me, my brother, and my parents find homes in the Greater Philadelphia area. There is probably no one better than Deb.
I met Deb in 2007 when she was representing the seller of the house I ended up buying! Since then, I have never considered working with another realtor. Deb has tremendous integrity. She is genuine and sincere, and it's clear that she cares. I've always felt that her top priority is the satisfaction and happiness of her clients with the purchase or sale of their property. When one of my best friends was looking to buy her first property, I recommended Deb. At the time, my friend was a young teacher, an immigrant to the United States, not a native speaker, and overwhelmed by the logistics of buying property and getting a mortgage in this country. I was confident that she would be in good hands with Deb -- and I was right. Deb helped my friend find a great place, and she represented my friend's interests with genuine caring and warmth. My friend has been deeply grateful ever since.
More recently, my partner and I have been working with Deb to find a house. Since we are combining two households and four properties, our logistics are complicated, but Deb has been wonderful, as always. As I said - I wouldn't consider working with anyone else.
During the past 10 years, we have had the pleasure of working with realtor, Deb Stanitz, as both home buyers and sellers. In each situation, Deb completely exceeded our expectations, making these potentially stressful events, calm and worry-free. Right from the start, Deb's individualized attention makes you feel like you are her one and only client. To achieve this, Deb has masterfully developed a highly responsive communication style. Whether responding to concerns or anticipating your needs before you even ask a question, Deb is available to offer her support (incredibly, often within minutes!) throughout each phase of the moving process. Deb's keen attention to detail was critical in guiding us step by step...her expert advice enabled us to confidently and successfully navigate the buying/selling experiences. The ultimate professional, Deb Stanitz is honest, hard-working, and trustworthy. We will forever be grateful to Deb for her skillful counsel and unfaltering encouragement through some of the most pivotal moments of our lives!
Deb helped guide us through the entire home buying process, and managed to keep a level head about the whole thing even when we are unsure about how to proceed. She got us in to see our new home before anyone else, and when we decided we were ready to buy she helped connect us with an excellent mortgage lender.
I would recommend Deb to anyone I know who is looking to buy a home. She is an incredibly sharp and thoughtful Real Estate agent who was endlessly patient with me and my husband as we hunted for our first home. We changed our minds about neighborhood, we waffled about size and age, and we questioned whether or not to even buy a home when we weren't finding anything as the market was slowing down. Deb stayed with us the entire time, with absolutely no pressure at all to make a purchase before we were ready. In fact, we knew she was looking out for our best interests when she discouraged us from buying a home we were in love with, but that needed more updating than we could afford. She then spent 8 weeks following a house on the same block that wasn't yet on the market, and got us in to see it before anyone else. We made an offer within an hour, and are thrilled with the results! This was the result of Deb's close attention to what we liked and didn't like about the houses we saw-- everything from the desire for a backyard, to our passion for spending time in the kitchen, to our appreciation of the character and craftsmanship of older homes. We couldn't be more grateful to Deb, who not only helped us find our perfect home, but has had endless resources and advice for us as first time buyers. She is truly our realtor for life!
