I had an outstanding experience working with Debra. We quickly found a property that met my requirements and executed the deal flawlessly. We were able to get a below asking price offer accepted and close on time. She went above and beyond in my opinion on numerous occasions, for example when an issue arose with my initial lender she quickly found another suitable option for me. Even after the closing she was quite helpful with suggestions on remodeling and subcontractors. Throughout the entire process she was highly professional, diligent and frankly a pleasure to work with. This was particularly important for me as I have a very busy work and travel schedule, she made the process easy. I would highly recommend Debra for any real estate need.

Perfect outcome. Knew what I was looking for and did not waste my time showing me properties I would not like.  Debra did not pressure me to make a quick decision. She kept showing me properties until I found what I was looking for. I am very happy with Debra's services and will use her again in the near future.

Debra, 

I can't thank you  enough for guiding Stacey and me with your expertise!  Our experience was perfect because of you.  There is a point in your career when you have seen it all and know exactly what to do .  You are at the top of your game and nothing can stump you - and well, you know we sure tried many times!     Your knowledge of Boulder and Weld county is amazing - having this situational awareness of past and present greatly benefited me in several decisions that would have otherwise been very costly.  When dealing with such a big transaction my wife and I NEEDED somebody that has your level of experience, sound judgment and is quick on her feet.     You made the selling process  a breeze .  You did everything right and took care of all the little details that would otherwise have driven us mad.   From staging, to cleaning, to even helping move furniture you  were on top of EVERYTHING.    I especially appreciate your attention to detail,  quick replies via text and email  and especially your online document signing - who has time to doodle across or fly back to Colorado to sign papers! Signing via my smartphone was awesome.    And, when we thought all was lost finding a home in such a hot market - you braved through a blizzard for us!   The strategy worked - all the other prospects showed up the next day - and a day too late! :-)  You are the Michael Jordan of Realtors, leaps and bounds beyond all others!

After nearly a year of searching for a house in Louisville – and nearly convinced we never would – we found Debra and she helped us find our new home within a few weeks!  We very much appreciated Debra’s ability to balance personal warmth with a professional, straightforward approach.  We had a few tough issues to resolve during our transaction, but Debra’s level-headedness kept the process moving and kept the interactions with the sellers pleasant.  We are so grateful that we found Debra.  We give her our highest recommendation!

"Debra has been the most professional and best realtor we have ever had, and we have bought/sold several properties with other realtors. She would contact interested parties in order to get back up offers on our homes even once we had an offer. Having other offers certainly helped a lot when it came time for the inspection resolutions. Debra always looked out for our best interests and we knew she was never just trying to sell our home quickly to turn it. She always worked for the best deal for us. I would highly recommend her!"

"We had concerns about ability to sell our home quickly in the sluggish real estate market.  Debra met with us and suggested areas where we could make improvements to our home (with little out of pocket cost) that would help preparing the home for the market.  Taking Debra's knowledge and expertise seriously, we made most, if not all of the modifications suggested.  Debra has a great eye for how to present the house well for the photographer and what to focus on for the MLS listing. Our concerns about ability to sell were quickly eliminated.  Our house was under contract in one day! Debra has the knowledge and expertise to manage the purchase and sale of a home with great ease and no pressure tactics. Debra is very responsive, resourceful and easy to work with. If we are in need of a realtor in the future, Debra will be the first person we contact!"

"I have worked with Debra twice now, once as the seller's agent and once as the buyer's.  I couldn't imagine working with someone more professional or diligent and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone"

Debra Hensen is the hardest working Real Estate agent I have ever had the pleasure to work with. My wife and I were seeking an investment property and contacted Debra. She not only found the perfect property in the right price point, she fought hard to make sure we were handed a property in good repair all the way down to the sewer line to the street, which as it turns out needed to be replaced. Thank you Debra!

                                                                   Yours in health,

It was a great experience working with Debra when we bought our home.  She quickly identified exactly what we were looking for in a home and had expert knowledge of the area we were looking at.  We especially appreciated the efficiency of the client website she set up for us and the ease of communicating which homes we wanted to see. Debra’s knowledge of the area and of the real estate industry, along with her experience, professionalism and availability made our home buying experience top notch and we would recommend her without condition or exception!!

Debra came in as a listing agent for our beautiful but troubled home. After a lot of ups, downs and drama we sold the house for full market value!
We had listed it right as the economy tanked and while we had received several offers we had failed inspection a few times, spent thousands fixing items and then putting the house back on the market. When Debra came onto the scene our home had been listed for 16 months already. We really liked her negotiating skills and quiet sense of assuredness. We again got an offer right away and found a major structural problem which needed repaired to the tune of almost $60k not covered by insurance. She helped us find contractors and work through the process. When we went back on the market the next buyers asked for all new windows. She always encouraged us to negotiate instead of just telling them to go jump. Finally after many offers, and contracts and inspecations we finally sold the home. It is very difficult to sell a home that has been on the market for a long time and that has had many many deals fall through without cutting the price to the bone. With careful and targeted updates and preparation and Debra's savvy negotiating skills we were able to sell the house for a good price after over 2 years on and off the market. I highly recommend Debra because she knows how to stand her ground for you and be strong without turning it into a p****** contest which alienates the other side. She is a true master of creating a win/win scenario in real estate and this is not a common quality. She is also very good at making sure the home is priced right and prepared properly which are key to selling fast.

When my husband and I set out to buy our first house together we wanted to find a buyer’s agent who we could trust - someone who we would feel comfortable with and someone who was honest, forthcoming and knowledgeable - we found all of these qualities and more in Debra Hensen.

When we decided to take the plunge and purchase a home, we had no idea that the housing market was undergoing a drastic change – the inventory of homes was incredibly low and moving fast and bidding wars were once again emerging in the residential real estate market. We had not prepared ourselves for a bidding war and we had not prepared ourselves for how quickly we would have to move if we found a great house. Debra eased us through the entire process like a champ!

Her buyer’s website made it extremely easy and convenient to navigate through the homes on the market that met our criteria and to narrow down the ones that we wanted to see.

Debra was always responsive and available – not to mention fearless and fun – not every real estate agent would be willing to boldly walk into a dark house (at night) that smelled of skunk and not every agent would be able to laugh about walking into a bedroom to find a chicken in a dog crate – needless to say, we had some interesting moments during our search for our new home.

When a new house popped up on the website that I knew we just had to see, Debra made sure we got in the very next day – in fact, we were the very first showing. As soon as we saw it we knew that it was the perfect house for us, but we also knew that we wouldn’t be the only ones who loved it – we ended up in a bidding war with another buyer. We had accepted the fact that a bidding war was likely, but we were still nervous about it nonetheless. Debra helped calm our fears and then she asked us to do something that we believe sealed the deal for us – she asked us to write a heartfelt letter to the sellers. We thought that writing the letter was a little weird, but it worked in our favor and we even received a letter from the sellers in return. A few short weeks later, we were moved into our new home!

We cannot say enough good things about Debra – she is incredibly knowledgeable, efficient, trustworthy, kind, fun and patient (especially with us first-time home buyers who have lots of questions and concerns). She made our home-buying process a breeze and we highly recommend her!

"Debra helped us to buy and sell our homes in the summer of 2011.  In a difficult housing market, Debra was able to help us get our house under contract in one month.  She walked us through every aspect of both transactions, and made the entire process very efficient and smooth.  Debra is a very knowledgeable real estate professional who understands what it takes to get the deal done!"

"The best decision my husband and I made in our home buying process was choosing Debra Hensen as our realtor.  Debra provided all the guidance we needed as first time home buyers.  We had a lot of fun with Debra and she got the job done every step of the way.  We were told that the home buying process would be complicated and stressful, but with Debra as our realtor everything went smoothly."

"Debra Hensen delivered for us during the sale of our property in June 2011.  Debra’s commitment to marketing the property met our high expectations.  We appreciated her pragmatic understanding of the marketplace.  Debra took care of business in a professional manner and demonstrated expertise throughout the process.  We recommend Debra without reservation."

"Debra Hensen has sold two houses for us in a tough economy.  She has her finger on the pulse of the housing market and has great instincts about what buyers are looking for.  Debra was always direct and straight forward to work with and if something needed to get done it was done beautifully with time to spare.   I can not recommend anyone more highly than Debra Hensen."

"Debra helped us sell our home in Longmont at a time when not many homes were selling. Not only that, we didn’t live in Colorado any longer and Debra was able to make it all happen without a hitch, quickly!  It takes a lot of faith to turn your home over to someone you have just met and trust their instincts to make an impact in a sluggish market, and Debra was right on. Thanks Debra, you’re awesome!"

"Debra first met with me and my husband about a year before we were actually ready to buy our first house. She gave us a lot of education up-front and, when we were finally ready, steered us in the right direction on where and how to look. Debra was amazingly patient on our long journey and worked very hard for us through inspections, renegotiations, and a difficult closing process. Endless thanks, Debra!"

"I have worked with some great real estate agents over the years.  I have bought and sold real estate as an investment and as a home.  I have never worked with a better agent than Debra E Hensen.  She made the process seamless and stress free.  Above all else she was fast.  We had the MLS listing and a video shot almost immediately.  Showings and feedback were communicated in a very timely and professional manner.  As soon as a qualified buyer was secured, Debra walked us through the process completely so there were no surprises.  I would recommend Debra to anyone in need of professional real estate advice.  It will be my pleasure to work with her again."

 "Employing the “process” of  selling a home in today’s market can be a rough row to hoe!  Having a realtor who understands the intricacies involved  is an absolute requirement for those who want to meet or exceed their selling price and schedule.  Debra Hensen sold our house in less than 30 days amid all of this economic chaos.  Enough said!"

"Working with Debra was a fantastic experience. She went beyond what we expected in selling our home (in 20 days!), in addition to helping us find a beautiful new home. Debra truly looked out for our best interests, and her honesty was greatly appreciated. We recommended her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area, and will use her again!"

Her upbeat personality was always appreciated.  We wouldn't work with anyone else!"

Dear Debra,

I wanted to thank you very much for our recent transaction together. You were the second Realtor that I hired to assist me with selling our investment home on Linden Ave in North Boulder. I had the property listed with a friend/realtor for several months and then decided it was time for a change. Boy what a change it was once you took over the listing. You performed every activity you promised me. From setting up the video you actively participated in and narrated, to contacting every builder in the Boulder County area, you delivered on everything in a timely and more importantly a professional manner. I was very impressed with your communication with me each and every week about what the activity had been during that week. There were no surprises and I was never “in the dark” about what was happening. Once we did get the first offer you worked diligently on trying to make it work for both parties involved. Unfortunately the first buyer had to sell their current home to purchase mine and that did not work out. But that did not get you down, in fact it seemed to fuel you even more and you went out and really marketed the property until we found our second buyer. We went through all of the inspections and normal requirements a seller goes through and not once did you get frustrated with transaction. We closed on time and I could not have been happier with the outcome of our successful closing. Thank you again for being a total professional during the entire process. I could not have asked for anything more from you and you delivered on everything you said you would do to help me sell my home. You have my upmost respect and I would highly recommend you to anyone buying or selling a home.

"Debra was amazing and a pleasure to work with.  I feel so lucky to have been referred to her.  I know I couldn't have purchased my house without her.  She was incredibly detailed and managed the sale process efficiently and flawlessly.  She gave me the sense that she was the person buying the house.  We love our new house, but if I were to move away from Boulder, I would fly Debra out to help me with my next house.

 "Debra was amazing in our first home buying experience. She was very down to earth and let us know up front the positives and negatives of every house we looked at. She really went out of her way for us, meeting with us even when it might have just been naive first-time homebuyer questions she understood what we were going through. Most importantly she became a friend and not just out Realtor!"

 “I would like to commend Debra for her hard work on searching out investment property for us, and her continued diligence on making sure everything was in order for the property closing.  She showed us several properties that she thought met our criteria, helped us select those that appeared to be good investments and helped us negotiate a contract that seemed fair for both parties. In spite of my busy schedule she was able to gently "push" me to get everything done prior to closing and willingly change her schedule to meet ours.  She was very pleasant, yet professional to work with!"

"Dear Debra, I would just like to take the time to formally thank you for the work you did recently as our Real Estate agent. I am so grateful to you for finding us our perfect home! As you know, we had looked for months on our own and searched high and low all over the state and just couldn't find the exact home we wanted and needed. Until you came along! You really listened to what is is we needed and found us exactly what we were looking for. I couldn't be more thrilled about the location, the layout of the home, all of the ammenities that we needed are close by, the home has all of the upgrades we hoped for (and more) ....AND best of all it was in our price range!  You went above and beyond the call of duty on more than one occasion. Thank you for your professionalism, your knowledge, and for making the process so smooth, timely and a lot of fun!  You're the best and I will definitely recommend you to all of my family and friends!"
