Suzanne & Tom Luckenbach
"Last summer we were returning to our beloved SF Bay Area and we had our hearts set on the impossible task of finding a home in the Montclair district of the Oakland hills for less than a million dollars. It was completely impossible, but we had a secret weapon in the form of our real estate agent, Debora January. In one of those rare moments of epiphany, we had an instantaneous trust and confidence in a real estate agent. It helped that I had worked with Debora in her previous incarnation as an Executive Producer at Ketchum Advertising in SF, and knew her to be fun, intrepid, and deadly accurate at all forms of creative and business execution. From the first phone call to dotting the last i on the closing documents, Debora was spectacular. She anticipated our every need and never pushed us toward something unpleasant. House-hunting with Debora was a joy, versus a treacherous chore of disappointment. We found the perfect home in just five weeks, and beat out several other offers, including one all-cash offer, to secure it. We couldn't be happier."
Neil & Gwen Vasant
“Debora is like your own Special Forces team to zoom in, search out and vet these hard to find matches, no matter how tough or high the bar. No or difficult is not in her vocabulary, only sound advice and reality checks. But then the killer edge is practically every agent our there knows her, her ethic and just love to work with her. If you had to trust your house hunt to anyone, can’t do any better.”
John & Jane Borris
“Like Muhammad Ali and Michael Jordan, Debora January is simply the greatest of all time. As a property buyer in Marin, both as an owner-occupier and as an investor, Debora has provided me with reliable, tailored, and when necessary around-the-clock service. Without delay she'll enthusiastically show me a property first thing in the morning, and she'll happily discuss properties with me on the phone late at night. She made a big effort to clearly understand upfront my needs and with those in mind she continues to work tirelessly to source the best local deals before they show up on Zillow. When I have found a property that fits with my objectives Deb has been like a business partner to me: she sets up private viewings, she susses out competing buyer interest, and she helps me plan and execute a bidding strategy. I will always use Debora January.”
Millie Olson & Tom Tawa
“Debora committed herself 100% to finding the right buyer for our home and selling it at the best possible price. She brought ideas, determination, hard work, and even a sense of adventure to the sale process from start to finish.”
Michelle & James van Kriedt
“Debora’s ability to calibrate her efforts to find the right home for her clients is extraordinary. When we started working with Debora we quickly realized that she was a steady beacon of support and able to move at light speed when necessary. Her dedication to meeting our needs made finding and purchasing our first home a reality.”
“Debora is an astute real estate professional and remarkable person. She also subsequently helped us sell a challenging property - our first sale. She was mindful of our priorities and concerns every step of the journey. We'll be working with Debora for our next home search and look forward to the next adventure.”
Nyla & Aaron Levey
“We couldn't be more pleased with an agent. She was always there when needed, extremely hard-working, professional, knowledgeable. and a very pleasant person to work with. We would highly recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a home in Marin.”
“Debora January Is The BEST!!! She was at my " Beck & Call " during the entire process. She made it smooth and simple for me to continue the transaction while she was in California and I was in Florida. How about that??? She made it all happen and it was a pleasure working with her. I would certainly recommend her to one and all.”
Rich & Susan Tuttle
“To the best real estate agent who ever lived! We thank you so much for your hard work, your brains, your discretion, your tact, and your gut instincts.”
Susan & Tim Bratton
“Debora brings years of big brand experience to her real estate practice. She’s vastly creative, a tremendous negotiator, and persevering. This market is a tough one – high prices for what you get, and the homes go fast in spite of it. Deb has a way of seeing opportunities in properties for her clients that they’d never see themselves. She’s reliable, kind, and a lovely woman on top of it all. I have recommended her to close personal friends, that’s how much I admire her skills.”
Angela &Chris Eddleman
“Deb January and I have worked together now through two home purchases. She is a wealth of knowledge, a killer negotiator, with a spitfire personality. A true gem who takes all the worry and stress from her clients. She truly made each acquisition pain free. A realtor above all. I promise you won’t regret having her on your side.”
Lucia Lee & Shane Fleeger
“Debora January was referred to us by our in-laws. She was attentive and responsive from the start. Always strove to be one step ahead of the game and always looked out for our best interest. She is someone you definitely want on your side because her temerity and good work ethic really come in handy during the home buying process. She made our difficult home buying process as painless as it could be and I just love her! I’m her number one fan and definitely recommend her for any real estate needs. You will not be making a mistake.”
Christine Wolter & Steve Guth
“When Deb took on our job, she had the challenge of coordinating both the sale of our current property and finding a new place simultaneously. Selling our home was the easier part, but the buying market was slow and highly competitive. She did a really great job of understanding what we were looking for and what our style was. She understood our financial restrictions and took the time to show us a variety of houses that showed what the market was like and what we could get for the money in several different neighborhoods. Deb goes above and beyond for her clients. She stays on top of every detail, and we came to totally trust her. Thanks Deb. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a great agent who is thoughtful, punctual, and will help you through the process with minimal hassle.”
