Debbie was great! She handled all the details of our home sale and provided great advice for prepping the house for potential buyers. She also kept us in the loop when we had showings and open houses, following up with comments and areas for us to improve. Thanks Debbie for all the help - we are extremely satisfied!
Thanks to Debbie we finally found our ideal home. We had been searched for a home for more than two years since 2017. Debbie has been very patient with us and showed us dozens of houses. She gave us very useful guidance on how to understand and value many aspects of a house, like construction quality, neighborhood, school district, housing market, price negotiation, and so on. As a first-time home buyer, now I understand and feel that the house searching is exciting but also quite frustrating when you have a hard time finding the right home you like. Having a good real estate agent can help that a lot! I highly recommend Debbie if you are looking for agent, because I happen to know she is very good and will help you find the right home.
Hi Jun,Thank you so much for your review. It was such a pleasure working with you and Lin. I commend you for really thinking each tough decision through. May you, Lin, Zoe, and Owen have many wonderful years in your new home. Sincerely, Debbie
I was referred to Debbie, and it was a connection that I am so thankful for. She was so knowledgeable and helpful, especially for a first time buyer. Her thoughtfulness and honesty about each property was so refreshing, I never felt like she was pushing me to make a decision or trying to upsell me. I will definitely reach out to her again if I need a realtor.
She was a complete joy to work with! She was kind, honest and knowledgeable about the housing market in my area. I took her suggestions and sold quickly and for more than asking price. I would highly reccomend her.
Debbie helped us buy and sell our first house. She was amazing to work with. She was so helpful to us as a first time home buyer, would recommend her to anyone!
Hi Rashelle,I can’t thank you enough for your kind review. It was such a pleasure getting to work with you and Andrew. You have an amazing family and I am so glad I got to share this experience with you. I wish you and your family all the best in your future endeavors. Thanks again!
Debbie went beyond our expectations in buying us a house! She not only showed us many different houses, but helped us through the process all the way to the end to buying a house. It was a pleasure in working and knowing we would be up to date as soon as possible when anything came up. Would definitely recommend her to anyone and if we need to sell or buy another home in the future, we know we will be going with Debbie!
Debbie is the best realtor we could have asked for!! We had such a hard time with our mortgage officer and if it wasn't for Debbie with her knowledge and persistence, we wouldn't have a brand new home right now! From the very beginning she fought for us and helped explain everything and was always just a phone call away. Thank you Debbie for everything you did for our family! We love our new home!!!
Thank you Alinda! I am so happy for you, Tom and the kids. I hope you have many wonderful years in your new home. Please send me a picture of the tree fort once it is built.
Debbie is wonderful to work with! She has helped us buy and sell five times and each time we have been beyond impressed by her! She does her research, puts the time and effort into each client, and is very honest. She doesn't hold information back, counsels her client based on her experience and ethics, and does everything she can to make sure her client's needs are met. Debbie is very well versed and knowledgeable about Mason, Portland, and Pleasant Lake (all areas she helped us buy and sell in). Although we love our current home, we cannot wait to work with Debbie again. Very highly recommended.
Thank you Chris and Nicole for the amazing review. I could not be happier for the two of you. Not only for your new home but also for the new addition to your family. He is sooo cute. I’m sure the three of you will have a wonderful summer out on the boat enjoying the lake and sunshine. I can’t wait to work with you again. You guys are the best!

Thanks, Jim! It was a wonderful working with you and Tina to sell your home. I’m glad I could provide information and insight to help you make the best decision on a listing price for your property. If you should have any real estate needs in the future, it would be a pleasure to work with you and Tina again
Debbie knows enough to be professional, while is also very sweet to consider all your personal needs and preferences. She loves her job and enjoys finding the best match for her clients. She is very efficient to get the information and get the things done immediately, thus she helped us to win a popular house even before other buyers get a chance to compete with us.
Debbie guided us through every step of the process, kept us informed, was able to recommend an excellent person to work with when we needed to get approved for a mortgage quickly and was always immediately responsive to phone calls. She made the process so much easier and more pleasurable. If I ever decide to move again, she will be the only agent I work with!
As a first time home seller, it was great to work with Debbie McCarthy. She had the answers to all our question before we could even think to ask. She was in constant contact with us and our house sold very quickly.
Debbie was excellent. Working with Debbie was like working with family. She listened to our needs and found the perfect house for us. She is the best and thank you again.
We have worked with Debbie to both buy and sell a house. When we were buyers, she stayed in contact with listings that matched our criteria and showed us some very nice homes. When it came time to make an offer, she gave us good advice on the offer and we were able to get the home in an excellent neighborhood for about $79/square foot (not counting the basement). From the perspective of selling our house, she made reasonable suggestions about repairs and updates that didn't break the bank. She brought realistic comps and helped us price the house well and brought serious buyers to the showings. She sold our house in 44 days. We had 30 showings and 5 open houses which were usually well-attended. Debbie is professional, competent, helpful, positive and stress-free. I highly recommend her as a realtor.
Hi Amanda,Thank you very much for your kind words and recommendation. It was definitely a great pleasure working with you and Dave on both transactions. All the best to you and your family!! ?
Debbie was very helpful and professional. We truly enjoyed meeting her and will be dealing with her again in the future if/when the opportunity arises.
Debbie helped me find and purchase a home. She was helpful in getting all of the information on homes I told her I was interested in. She was also very on top of things when it came time to get everything done with the purchase of the home. Very quick to respond to email, text, phone calls.
Debbie is fantastic! She is very helpful and knows the area well. Even when we had a hiccup with our financing she was willing to help get us back on track and find the right house. I would recommend her to anyone.
Debbie was very professional and pleasant to work with during the entire process. She effectively marketed the property, highlighting the best features and held numerous open houses. She provided good advice and clarification whenever we had questions. She was consistent to follow up on all matters. When needed, also went above and beyond to help ensure activities necessary for the sale were attended to -- helping to locate appropriate resources to get the job done and expedite the completion. I believe Debbie is very knowledgeable, has a strong ethical approach to business and genuinely cares about her clients. I would definitely recommend Debbie McCarthy.
When looking for the first house you want to buy, it can be a little intimidating. We saw a house we really wanted and it was unfortunately in foreclosure. We have all heard the horror stories with those...takes a ton of time, you get what you pay for, it's a hassle and so many others. Debbie took us on and we were so happy she did. The market is such a confusing place and in the realm of foreclosure it is three fold. Debbie kept in constant contact with us, helped us find a banker, an inspector and some piece of mind. She helped us so much in the process and if she did not know an answer, she got back to us with one. The dealing with a bank in a foreclosure can be awful but Debbie made it bearable and for that alone, I would recommend her.
Debbie is the best. She was very patient even though it took me forever to choose, always had great insights, and had no problem showing me countless houses. Some multiple times even. Highly recommend.
We found Debbie through Zillow and read reviews on line - all positive. We took a gamble (not knowing her personally) and are very glad we did. The house we LOVED was a foreclosure which turned out to be a 6 month process to purchase. Debbie was consistent for the loooonnnggg haul. She was familiar with the profess, made recommendations on persons to contact, was familiar with the local market and kept us informed along the way. It was a lot of work for her but she remained positive throughout. We have now purchased the home and honestly feel that it would not have been possible without Debbie as the agent. We STRONGLY recommend her!
Debbie completed a very difficult transaction involving the sale of my Mother's home, plus spent a great deal of time helping me with a purchase. She did so effortlessly. Debbie is a joy to work with and I highly recommend her!
we are live in Oregon.But we want to buy a house in Michigan .with Debbie help we quickly find the house we want and through transaction smoothly. During purchasing we made some mistake like wrote an offer for one house that we don't like. Debbie resolved all of problem we encountered. We are very please with Debbie excellent work.
Deb was very very responsive , organized and effective. House sold in 90 days. Would recommend her very highly. The home, while near and dear to my heart, was an older farm home. She attracted several good offers and the one I accepted bought the home without any problems. The buyer's agent said Deb was responsive and organized and made the sale go very smoothly.
From the very first meeting Deb helped to make us feel comfortable with what seemed like an overwhelming task to sell our house. During the sale process she proved valuable and knowledgable in endless ways and always gave us the reassurance we needed that all steps we're in order. During the chaos of our relocation she helped negotiate our home sale AND our frazzled nerves!! We loved working with Deb every step of the way and would recommend her emphatically to those seeking top-of-the-line representation.
This is our first time of buying a house and we could not have done it without Debbie. We chose Debbie as our agent because of the excellent reviews we found about her on the website. Debbie is amazing at what she does. She truly looks out for your interest as the buyer. We had a long journey finding a home and Debbie was patient and dedicated to us the entire time. She has to be commended for sticking in there with us on our search. She is truly the best of the best! We will definitely recommend her to our friends.
I had reached out to Deb to assist me in a few properties I was interested in. From the beginning of our interactions, Deb was very knowledgable and well prepared during each meeting. There was little follow up work that I had to do as she took care of everything and contacted the necessary individuals in order to purchase the property I was interested in. She was very thorough and always made sure to answer all of my questions in great detail to make sure I understood. I would recommend Deb to anyone in the buying or selling process as she is very trustworthy and reliable. She has an extensive network of good people in the area (inspectors, etc.) and assisted me in getting the home I wanted.
Debbie is an excellent realtor. She is professional, patient, and friendly. She really gives you the feeling like you have someone in your corner; someone completely on your side. This is the second house that Debbie has helped me with. She helped me find my dream home two years ago and now helped me find one for my in-laws. My in-laws are from China and do not speak a word of English. Through the whole process, she was incredibly patient, especially with all the translating, staying late into the evening on multiple occasions to get through all the paperwork. As a result, she now has experience with getting international funds ready for closing day. I can not begin to thank her enough for all her help before and after the sale. She even volunteered to come with me in the days between the closing and taking possession of the home to make sure the previous owners cleaned everything out and make sure the house was move-in ready. You can genuinely tell that she loves to help people find and buy their dream home. I give Debbie my highest recommendation. Buying a home is a big deal. With that in mind, you need a trustworthy realtor like Debbie to help you through the difficult and sometimes confusing process.
All i can say about her is "She is the best". She has so much patience (She had shown us at least around 30 to 35 properties. We were tired, but not her). I told her my monthly budget including all the additional expenses that add up because of home ownership. She used to do all the rough estimates/calculations based on my budget constraints & used to show me only those properties that could come under my radar keeping in view my preferences. Some properties do have few hidden issues which she used to identify while going through the property & bring it to my notice. If there are any properties which i liked but do have some problems, she used to right away say no to those explaining what might happen in future if i proceed with them. While closing as well, she helped us a lot with home inspection, finding a right lender etc..Given a chance, i would suggest anyone who is trying to purchase a property to go with her without a second thought. Thanks a lot, Debbie. You helped us get our dream home.
I met Debbie through a friend who highly recommended her. She helped my wife and I through the whole process from selecting the house to finalizing the closing process. Her expertise and professionalism surpassed any expectations my wife and I had. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
Debbie is very easy to work with and combined with her knowlege of real estate transactions and the market, you could not choose a finer agent. She just sold our second property and we couldn't be happier with her! I wish we had other real estate that we could list with Debbie.
Debbie is flat out awesome. We started working with her to find our first home in the spring of 2012. We finally closed more than a year later. She was so patient and helpful it felt like we had a family member helping us find the perfect house. Thanks, Debbie!
Debbie was very helpful in helping us find the right home for us. She did whatever it took for us to get what we needed, and was always available when we needed to get in touch with her.
Debbie was very helpful and very friendly to work with. She answered all my questions promptly and with aptitude, and pushed the banks to help speed up the short-sale process that was taking forever. I definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home!
Debbie is an all around great person. She was very moviated to get me into the house that was perfect for me. She is an honest person, which makes her one of the best in the business. She went above and beyond any of my expectations of what an agent does, and most importantly she made the whole buying a home experience, a great experience. I would say if you were looking for an agent, Debbie McCarthy is the agent you want.
In a very difficult-to-sell market, I was forced to sell my home. Debbie was very knowledgeable about how to do that and always communicated clearly with me what would happen each step along the way. I felt very comfortable because of this and confident in her abilities. I also ran into some unusual roadblocks because of my personal circumstances and Debbie had a circle of professionals she was able to reach out to who assisted us with making the sale happen. She didn't hesitate to take action when necessary and always remained pleasant which was priceless to me.
If I ever buy or sell a home again, I will definitely work with Debbie and I have recommended her to others and will continue to do so!
My son bought his first home 1 year ago and Debbie made it a very special and successful experience. She was always immediately responsive to phone calls and e-mails. She has great patience..their were 4 to 5 of us at most home showings and she gave each of us individualized attention.
Debbie followed up with my son following the closing on the home to make sure everything was going well. He had an house warming open-house in the summer and invited Debbie. She demonstrated her continued support by attending to congratulate him and see the updates he had made.
My husband and I will be seling our home within the next 2 years and will definetly have Debbie List our home and assist us in finding our next home.
Debbie went above and beyond my expectations when it came to buying and selling my first house. There was never a time when she wasn't available for me and she worked very hard to find me the right house that fit me! I decided to sell my house after I graduated, and she provided me with all the guidance necessary to get what I wanted out of the sale. I would highly recommend her as a real estate agent to anyone!
After having our house on the market for over a year and having some bad and unproductive experiences with other realtors, we signed on Debbie, and got wonderful results right away! She gave us great advice on re-staging our home and had potential buyers in quickly! We were able to have our house sold within a month of signing on with Deb and were able to retire and relocate in a time frame comfortable for us. We would highly recommend Debbie to anyone/everyone! Mary and Jim Mowbray
Very nice and honest person. Got her details through some website, but boy I am glad I called her,
Will go to any extent to help out her clients.
She got us what we were exactly looking for. She worked with us to get us a good understanding of the market and the current process of buying to which we were very new. Even helped us in getting they exact type of loan we were looking for. She even responds to all our calls and queries promptly even after being done with the closing.
Would surely recommend to others.
Debbie did a great job for us in a difficult market. Very pleasant to work with and we would highly recommend her to anyone that's considering listing their home anywhere in the Lansing area!

Debbie was really more than I ever expected a buyers agent to be. She kept in constant contact with us about the houses we were interested in and stayed on top of the sale for our new house. She exceeded our expectations on all levels. I would recommend her to anyone I know. She is extremely knowledgable with short sales which is what our purchase was. She stayed right on top of the banks and the sellers agent to expedite the purchase of the house. Absolutely wonderful!
1) Ms McCarthy was very responsive to my questions and quickly obtained answers.
2) She made her schedule work with mine.
3) She stayed on top of things and kept the process moving. She provided information to the bank, the other realtor or me, as needed. She moved the paperwork along efficiently.
There was not a lot of negotiation or local expertise. I would rate her 4 and 1/2 stars.
Deb is a very personable and competent agent. She really spent a lot of time getting to know our goals and dreams and then helping us find the right home for us. Deb offered good insight when it came time to find inspectors and loan officers. She made herself available for a variety of meetings and showings. Deb has also built some good relationships in the business which helps her get inside information to guide the process. She made us feel well cared for. Thanks Deb for a great job!
