What a great experience! Debra truly covered every detail, and really made the sale of our home as seamless as we could have only dreamed for, and the cherry on top was that she negotiated $100,000 over asking for us! She is a rare professional, and with her decades of experience, and expertise, we will recommend her highly!

I most highly recommend Debra Smalley as your Realtor. At every stage of this multi-layered and complex process she was extremely knowledgeable and always immediately accessible to answer questions or attend to the details of contract writing, building codes, and title specifications. With her guidance we were able to sell our mother’s home above our asking price in less than ten days from listing. Under whatever circumstances you want, need, or must sell a home, Debra is kind and compassionate while at the same time professional, strategic and a fierce skilled negotiator.
We cannot imagine where we would be today (perhaps without a home!) were it not for Debra Smalley. In today’s ultra-competitive LA market, you need an agent who is knowledgeable and a go-getter. It’s not uncommon for a home to be online today only to be gone by the morning. Debra walked us through the process of buying a home in Los Angeles (we are east-coast transplants) and, at times, held our hands. Home hunting in this city is not easy. Debra was informative, but perhaps more importantly, honest; we could count on her for an objective assessment about a home or an offer. But what meant so much more to us was that she is an incredible human being who cared more about our hopes and dreams than signing a contract. We would highly recommend her with no hesitation. Debra is the absolute best.

Selling a home is among the hardest experiences one has to go through and Debra Smalley is such an amazing realtor that she made every burden be lifted like a feather. She had my back in every way: found me great and affordable vendors to fix, stage, and photograph the house, she was connected day and night when challenges were taking the best of me, immersed in all the minute details, and followed up every step of the way quickly and efficiently. As if that weren’t enough, Debra is masterful at negotiating the sale, making everyone involved feel like it’s a win-win situation – which it was! I wish I were buying a house in LA just so that I could have Debra be my realtor once again. She’s a gem!!!

Buying a home can be stressful. Debra Smalley made it a breeze. Attentive. Communicative. Responds quickly to emails and texts. She gave great advice and knows the ins and outs of the West Hollywood/LA real estate market. This was my first time buying in the California market and you definitely want someone experienced to hold your hand.

Now that escrow has closed and the transfer of ownership has taken place, Sharon Linkletter and I want to express a heart-felt thank you for making this sale happen. You are part of a team, but it is easy to see the major contribution you made compared to the other team members. Your professionalism and commitment to service are superb.
When Coldwell Banker was retained by the Art and Lois Linkletter Estate, we were told, and therefore presumed, that a vast network of senior people in the organization would fully manage the sale. You quickly became the focal point and the consistently reliable agent on our behalf. We saw other team members periodically, but we relied on your abilities in each week of the process to keep us centered and in the loop.
Sharon joins me in strongly sharing the same beliefs. Thank you for what you bring to the table. Because you are so good, you make Coldwell Banker look exceptional. Well done.

Working with Debra was an absolute pleasure. I had been searching for a new home on and off for about a year or so, and finally decided to purchase a new home. Once I began working with Debra, a traditionally stressful process became what it was supposed to be- fun! From day one Debra was on my side; she doesn’t pressure or persuade, but is truly focused on finding a home that suits the needs of the buyer. I couldn’t suggest a more qualified and fantastic Real Estate agent than Debra, and I will be using her to find the home that will accompany me in my next phase of life.
