Deborah Greenspan offers the highest level of professionalism and attention to detail. Our real estate sale was seamless and stress-free from the moment we listed our home with Deborah. She believed in the value of our home and her enthusiasm and sales experience resulted in a very quick and successful sale. We’ve been involved in real estate transactions for over 30 years and Deborah Greenspan is by far the best realtor who has ever represented us. Her integrity, marketing expertise and communication skills are truly outstanding. –Tom & Dayna Arnold

Dear Deborah, We are now the happy owners of a beautiful home in La Jolla! – Thanks, in large part, to your counsel, tenacity and professionalism. Every step of the way you provided excellent guidance and support. Buying a home is big in anyone’s life – having a real estate professional to facilitate the entire process from first offer to close is essential to bringing it all together. Thank you for being there all along the way for us – with you, we made it happen! –The Niederers

As someone who has moved multiple times during my professional career, I have significant amount of experience working with real estate agents. Working with Deborah Greenspan on the recent sale and subsequent purchase of a new home I can honestly say that Deborah is clearly “head and shoulders” above her peers. She was responsive, extremely knowledgeable and tenacious, professional and most important to me, has uncompromised ethics. I have already recommended her to several of my friends and do so without any hesitation. She is clearly a “get things done” person while making it all seem so effortless. Never had a smoother experience. –Randal Woods

Deborah Greenspan is in a class of her own. She is incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, and organized. She knows the La Jolla market inside and out. She was my advocate at all times during the selling process. She was great at negotiating and following up with potential buyers. During the process, she pulled weekly comps, kept me updated on market conditions, and organized weekly open houses. She was remarkable in all aspects. We were very lucky to have her on our team  –Julie Lazarus

My wife and I met Deborah fortuitously at an open house in La Jolla four years ago. We liked her immediately and asked her to represent us in finding a property. It was not long before we found our “dream home” in the Muirlands area of La Jolla. However it was a long ordeal to realize tat dream, as the spread between what the seller wanted and what we were willing to pay was considerable…in fact, for a while it looked like the gap was not closable. Due to Deborah’s persistence over a three month period, the gap was closed and today we live in that “dream house”. She proved to be a fair yet strong negotiator on our behalf. A year and a half ago, my wife and her sister decided to sell their family home. Naturally, that listing went to Deborah. Deborah represented the estate’s interest with complete competence. Her superior design ability helped with the “staging”, her marketing expertise gave the necessary exposure to attract buyers, and finally her negotiating strength closed the sale. She has been a delight to work with and we look forward to engaging her in future moves.  –Cliff

Deborah Greenspan represented us as the listing agent. The house did not sell. During the process, a slow and difficult high-end market in Rancho Santa Fe, she advertised the property, held broker’s preview open house, scheduled regular meetings with us, her team, and often times the CEO of Pacific Sotheby’s. We were well served, and cannot hold Deborah accountable for the market – or lack thereof. Throughout the listing agreement, our calls and e-mails were promptly returned, there was never a late or missed appointment. Deborah is responsible and a consummate professional. We would hire her again.  –The Nicholas Family

Deborah is a highly qualified consummate professional in the Real Estate industry. Her well-developed negotiating skills assisted us greatly in selling our home in La Jolla. Deborah is detailed, timely, considerate, respectful, and able to negotiate a deal at any level. We would highly recommend her regarding the purchase or sale of a property as she is knowledgeable with years of expertise working with high-end properties and truly cares about the client.  –Deborah Vietor

Deborah Greenspan came into my life when I happened upon an Open House in La Jolla in 2011. That chance encounter evolved from a business transaction into a marvelous friendship. That same year she negotiated the purchase of a lovely home in the Muirlands for my husband and myself. Then, in 2014 she listed our “family” home also in La Jolla, for my sister and I. She is a true professional, keenly aware of the market, trustworthy, and a great negotiator on both sides of a transaction. I look forward to working with her again and again.  –Mia

In 2014 Deborah Greenspan sold our family home which we had lived in and loved for 55 years in La Jolla. She did it with grace and diligence. I would recommend Deborah to any of my friends, as I know she would do the same for them and their families.  –Enrica Pearson

My experience after meeting almost all the agents in the Rancho Santa Fe/La Jolla market, Deborah Greenspan is second to none. We were fortunate enough to have been introduced to Deborah and she has been both a great advisor and subsequent friend as we searched for a home. She is never pushy and gives balanced and thoughtful advice as she draws on her deep knowledge of the market and current market trends. I could not recommend Deborah more strongly, and recommend seeking her out if you are looking to transact in this market.  –H. Bentinck

It is hard to find words to express how fortunate I feel to have found Deborah. She has represented me in the best possible ways. She heard me, worked with me, and listed and received the highest price for my home of any property in this neighborhood. Simultaneously, she helped me locate the home I now own and one that fills our needs perfectly. In this process I feel that we began as acquaintances and ended as friends. I recommend Deborah to you with absolutely no reservations.  –Sandra Robertson

Beautifully professional. Deborah is as professional as she is beautiful inside and out. She has a warm and graceful presence, but she gets things done. We had an extended escrow to accommodate a reverse 1030 exchange. Deborah was always there and made a difficult transaction smooth and successful. Thank you for all of your hard work.  –The Brewers

“AN 11 ON A SCALE OF 10”
Deborah is the most knowledgeable, professional and responsive real estate agent with whom I have ever worked with and I have bought and sold over 10 homes. In addition to being so professional, she has a delightful personality, terrific sense of humor and is beautiful. It was apparent from our first meeting that she understood my needs and was responsive to any request that I made. She always, always answered my calls, checked in with me and followed through in the most timely way. In my estimation Deborah is an 11 on a scale of 10.  –Barbara Henward

It’s been such a pleasure working with Deborah! We have used other realtors in the past and have never had such a good experience. Deborah has a lot of experience and knows the market very well. She responded to our e-mails and phone calls very quickly. We will certainly use her services again in the future if we purchase or sell another home. We could not be happier.  –Chris & Gen

Deborah worked with us over a period of about a year to find the right house.  It was a long, sometimes difficult, learning process for us; we bid on several houses without success before getting what we wanted.  At every point in that process Deborah was a consummate professional.  She has tremendous local knowledge and is familiar with all the details of the neighborhoods in La Jolla and the surrounding area. Deborah and her team were helpful and always willing to go the extra mile for us.  Nothing was too much trouble and despite several failed bids, she was always available, supportive and positive.  She has a wealth of knowledge about local valuations and what buyers and sellers in this market are looking for. I was particularly impressed by her knowledge of the ancillary aspects of the purchase.  We were looking for a rehab project, which can present problems with financing and service providers.  Deborah has good contacts in the local banking, escrow and insurance communities that proved very valuable in getting a complex deal closed. A final commendation:  her assistant, Hannah Perlman, was a terrific person to deal with.  A lovely attitude, and a good eye for some details we would otherwise have missed. If you’re looking for a professional, Deborah is someone you need to talk to.  -Chris Payne
