We met Debbie Penzo at an open house where she was the sellers agent. While we weren’t quite ready to buy a home (it was the first one we looked at) we asked Debbie for her honest opinion as to how much she thought the home would sell for ...and turns out she hit the nail right on the head. We didn’t buy that home but the Debbie Penzo team became our trusted buyer’s agent and with much skill and hard work helped us find what eventually became our dream family home. One major “value add” to the Debbie Penzo team is both Debbie’s husband and son are highly skilled and experienced general contractors ...and we received very timely and educated estimates about 1) the quality of a homes “bones” and 2) how much it would cost to make changes to a potential purchase ...over and over and over again, with much time and patience from them, until we found the fixer upper home for us. Another thing we apprenticed about Debbie is how honest she was with us ...without going into excessive detail there were a few situations where it would have been in Debbie’s financial interest to steer us in a particular direction ...but instead we were always told what she thought best for us. I later hired the firm run by Debbie’s two kids (Luca and Natasha), called Urban Blueprint, to do both the design and general contracting for the major reno....we couldn’t be happier with how that turned out. I strongly recommend the Debbie Penzo Team.
