Testimonials

When my wife Lisa and I decided to sell our first home and purchase a new one, we contacted Debra Orr at the enthusiastic recommendation of a friend. At our initial meeting, Debra explained the selling and buying process with such clarity and detail that we immediately retained her to represent us. She helped us to prepare our home for sale so effectively that it sold in less than a week for more than our asking price. This left us without a place to live, and we were facing a very thin market for available houses. From that point on, Debra made us feel like we were her only clients, working tirelessly to bring us into every property that was appropriate. She respected our desires and limits regarding the kind of house we were looking for and what we could afford to pay for it. She never got impatient or frustrated when, for one reason or another, we judged a property inadequate for our family. Rather, with ceaseless good energy and humor, she kept up the search, constantly assuring us that something would come along even when it seemed it wouldn’t. When we finally saw a house come onto the market that looked like it could be the one, she got us into it first, helped us make our offer immediately, negotiated a stressful bidding competition for the property, and steered us successfully to its purchase. It is not an exaggeration to say that the time she put into our relationship has transformed our lives. Our family loves our new home, and we are well aware of how fortunate we were to have Debra get us into it. You will not find a more skilled, professional agent in the area.

"Debra worked with us for over a year and was instrumental in making an extraordinarily difficult transaction close. She was responsive, always did what she said she would do, and always went above and beyond what was required of her to ensure the deal we wanted to close got closed. Excellent job. I highly recommend Debra."

Debra Orr was our realtor for the sale of a home/property in Greenlawn, NY. She began her diligent work for us by pricing our home correctly without giving us expectations of grandeur but getting us full value for our property. Her industry and expertise continued with multiple showings and open house showings. Visiting realtors, knowing of her expertise, brought multiple clients/buyers to view our property. We received multiple offers for the property all within the proposed selling price she had originally suggested. Offers were made and accepted shortly after the original listing. Debra demonstrated a high level of expertise blended with professionalism and a great rapport with clients, other realtors and with us. We were in constant contact with her and were kept abreast of all actions. I have and would again highly recommend her and her firm to all.

“Debbie did an outstanding job on the sale of my father's house. In a difficult and turbulent real estate market Debbie developed an extremely effective marketing plan, then executed it to perfection. We sold our home for very close to asking price, in only 3 weeks. Selling a home that has been in your family for decades is was an emotionally charged affair. Debbie always knew what to say and how to proceed in the negotiations. She did a wonderful job, for which my family and I will always be grateful! Highly recommended!!”

Pat and I are most grateful for the magnificent work Debbie Orr did in selling our home. She went the extra mile in providing professional photographs and great advice prior to and during the period our home was on the market. After over a year with another agent you came in and in short order had us in contract. When the buyer had difficulty obtaining financing, you stepped in and helped them with arranging necessary mortgage funding where his own agent let him down. You even provided a translator when it became obvious that the buyer’s problems were related to language difficulties. Thank you for your kindness, strong work ethics, knowledge and diligence in helping us sell our house at a fair price in a most difficult market.

“Debbie is a true professional. I hired Debbie to sell my house and she performed at a level that is rare in the real estate business, honest, loyal and with integrity. I have recommended Debbie to my friends who are also selling their home....she gets results. Thanks Debbie!”

Debbie Orr is a fine professional and a good listener. She understood what it was like for me to have to sell my mother's apartment. Debbie read me and the whole situation very well. She was fast, smart, always available and made the process as painless as it could have been. As if her wonderful service wasn't enough, she presented me with a little gift on the day of the closing. It was I that should have presented her with a gift. She is a cut above. I recommend her without reservation.

Lisa, Huntington, NY

As first time homebuyers, we were extremely nervous and naïve.  The service and personal attention we received from our Realtor, Debbie Orr, was welcoming and exceptional!  She gave generously of her time, her knowledge and herself.  Her knowledge of the local market and key contacts in the community helped us in our search for our dream home. Our search was a very long and exhausting one, but Debbie patiently went through each listing with us, and made sure we were getting the best value and amenities for our needs.  Once we found our dream home but learned of some unconventional circumstances surrounding our purchase, Debbie guided us through the difficult process with a smile on her face.  Her service does not end at the closing, as she has since become a good friend and neighbor.

Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, we highly recommend Debbie to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to lead us through our first home buying experience.

Nick & Allison, South Huntington, NY

**********

We worked with Debbie Orr to purchase our new home and she did a great job. She made herself available any time we wanted to go out and see a house, she answered all our questions in a timely fashion, and was very upfront and honest which is what we respected most. The seller, at times, became difficult but she handled it with true professionalism.  We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor who is truly on your side.

Jackie and Jason, Eatons Neck, NY

Our trust was well placed. We're both glad we found a team like you and Kim. Your experience and compassion were invaluable in guiding us through the sale and all the many details that went with it. We're happy with the outcome -- both emotionally and financially. It feels good knowing the buyers are drawn to the place in the same way we were. Things like that are priceless.  We wish both of you all the best. Please look us up if you're ever in the Wilmington area.

Debbie worked with me as a Buyer's Agent to help me through the process of buying my first home.  She was very helpful throughout the process, from showing me multitudes of homes, being available to answer questions, providing guidance for negotiating with sellers, offering advice in all aspects, and more.  She showed up to every milestone, even if it wasn't necessary for her to be there - the engineer's inspection, the final walk-through, the closing, & even when I just wanted to look at the house again to decide what colors I wanted to paint the walls.  Debbie was always on time or even early to every appointment.  She showed great communication skills throughout the process, being available by phone, email, & even text.  I would recommend Debbie's services to anybody trying to find a home.  Thanks again for all your help, Debbie!

As a recent home buyer I can attest to the anxiety associated with finding a home and the hoops you have to jump through securing the mortgage.  Most people end up being herded around by numerous agents to open houses and foreclosures that “fit” your criteria.  Finding an agent today has become more like a game of musical chairs which will no doubt leave you exhausted and open to poor decision making when buying your home.  And let’s not forget about the countless hours spend prepping on MLSLI which fells more like studying for a college mid-term. Enter Debbie Orr, a successful realtor with experience in the field.  A local to Huntington and familiar with its surrounding towns she has the personal insight to help buyers find just the right home.  I had the privilege of finding Debbie early on while looking for my first home.  Even though I was not what you would call an ideal client as I work overnights and sleep during the day.  If I wanted to see a home it was usually with an hour notice and I never had a problem.  Debbie always accommodated my requests even if we did have to go back two or three times just to make sure. After searching, we sat down and discussed all the drawbacks, alternatives and potential involved and I walked away confident in my decision.  In fact it was a great decision because I ended up buying my first home!  It has been four months and things are just great.  I never anticipated finding a home that fit me so well. I would like to thank Debbie for helping make everything possible.  I really appreciate it.

“Debra Orr was wonderful throughout the entire process and I would highly recommend her to family and friends looking to purchase a home on Long Island.”

I wanted to write to you to let you know of the pleasant experience I just had working with Debbie Orr during the purchase of my new home.   After a horrific year dealing with real estate agents, Debbie was a breath of fresh air.  She was pleasant, efficient, and most importantly, not pushy.  I met her by chance when I went to look at a home that I saw on line.   At that meeting we discussed what I was looking for in a home and from that moment on Debbie was terrific.  She knew what to look for and did not waste any of my time.  In a few short months Debbie found me the perfect home and I cannot wait to move in!    

If you need a great real estate person, look no further, you found her in Debbie.

Marie, Commack, NY

Thank you for your time and effort in meeting with me and formulating the activities required to list my home for sale.  Unfortunately, prior to the first showing on March 11th, a potential buyer contacted me and agreed to purchase my home.

During our conversations, you have demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism and real estate acumen.  Our actions are a very positive reflection of your organization.  Furthermore, I will eagerly recommend the Debra Orr/Rory Peters Team to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate.

Please accept my best wishes for your continued success.

Here we are in NC and closed on our new home this morning. Everything continued smoothly and we are feeling incredibly lucky to be where we are at this point in our time, now. Well, a lot has to do with the smart move we made to have you two as our Realtors to sell our home on Hendrie Lane. Thanks for all you've both done.  We feel you've not only been great business partners but friends to us as well and we will remember you that way.

Thanks again for the considerate gift and best of luck to both of you with your future in (or out) of NY and Long Island.

Deb always had detailed information about the home and area were looking at. She understood that looking for a rental with a small child and large dog was not easy but made the process effortless. She help negotiate the terms of our lease and was with us every step of the way. Deb is true professional who loves what she does. I recommend her to anyone who is looking for a home.

I had the pleasure of working with Debbie Orr on some Investment properties and rental housing in the Township of Huntington, NY She is a very knowledgeable Real Estate Professional who took the time to understand my needs and showed me properties that met my specific criteria and those that in her wisdom could have potential for meeting or exceeding my expectations. Debbie always kept in contact with me, via phone, text or email about the status of properties I looked at and the ones I made offers on as well. As new properties became available she would reach out to me and let me know about them, providing very valuable counsel. I can only say this to prospective buyers or sellers of any kind of property, if you want an agent who is hard working, a formidable negotiator, and someone who knows the real estate business then Debbie should be your only choice.

My wife and I began working with Debbie as we search for a new home for our growing family. School districts and a nice backyard were our two main must-haves, and Debbie did a wonderful job searching the market for exactly what we wanted. She quickly found dozens of listings that meet our criteria and personally walked us through half a dozen that we liked. The service was incredible. Communication was great. We had tons of questions, and Debbie answered everyone nearly instantaneously. When we found the one that felt like "home", Debbie made the negotiations painless and stress-free. We are incredibly happy with our new home and would highly recommend Debbie's services for anyone looking for a new home.

Debbie Orr is an exceptional person. She was very sensitive to the difficult process of selling my mother's home. She was positive, realistic and consistently available to answer all the questions I had along the way. She contacted me frequently to ask if there was anything outside of the actual real estate process that I needed. Debbie is an excellent real estate agent and a very good person. I would recommend her to anyone without reservation.

Debra did a great job of selling my house in May 2014.  At our initial meetings she told us what to expect, and her advice was right on the money.  The house was priced correctly, and we received multiple offers the first week it was listed.  Debra gave us great referrals to professionals (painters, handymen, etc.) who helped us get the house ready to show.  She is extremely hard working and intelligent.  She also helped us find a new house that we will be moving to in July.

Margaret, Huntington, NY

It was clear from the start that Debra knew the community our house was located in and gave us guidance as to how to properly price it and showcase our home. She was always willing and available to answer any and all of our questions and concerns. Debra has a great attitude and is personable and honest. One felt from the beginning that she would give us the service and care that we needed. She is a consummate professional.

Debbie was amazing. She was extremely helpful with the house hunting process. She was extremely knowledgable and attentive. She listened to exactly what we were looking for and eventually we found the perfect home. We couldn't have done it without her!

I had a fantastic experience with Debra Orr from the Signature Properties. She was very knowledgeable of what needed to be done from start to finish. She guided me through the sale effortlessly. She kept me informed and answered all my questions when I needed them answered. She helped me stage the home beautifully and the first open house was magnificent. We got an offer right away and she sold the house on the very first showing. I was very impressed and very grateful to her Thank you Debbie now I can retire and fulfill my dreams.

Lisa, Huntington Station, NY

After several interviews with agents we selected Debra to sell our home. The home was in our family since the 1960's. Debra was able to reach out to other communities to bring in potential buyers in a difficult market and in the slower selling months. She was also very helpful with experts that were needed to prepare and repair for our inspections. We were especially grateful that she was able to work with us during a very difficult closing process. We were in very good hands from the very first meeting through to the closing.

Chris & Linda, Huntington Station, NY

Debra was actually the seller's agent of the house that we (my husband and I) bought. Although we didn't have much interaction with her before the sale of the house, after the sale it was Debra who went out of her way to inform us of the necessity to apply for Basic Star Exemption that had a deadline. If it wasn't for her volunteering this information (not even being her client!), we would have missed a very substantial tax break this year. She became our "go to" person with regard to recommendations for professionals in the area, as well as being instantaneously responsive to all our emails and requests about the home buyers' experience. We became so comfortable with her warm responsiveness that recently I went back to Debra for assistance and advice about the real estate business, as I am considering pursuing a career in this field. She was so helpful that I offered my design/home staging services as a volunteer. We highly recommend Debra to anyone either purchasing or selling a home!

We have not gone to closing as of yet, but the process from the start to finish has been excellent. Debra is very knowledgeable, has excellent suggestions to help the sale process move along. Within a day of our first open house we had multiple offers. I would recommend Debra to everyone as  the best agent to work with to sell their house.
