You were great to work with, very personable and easygoing. It was very easy for Christian and I to be open and honest with you about our likes and dislikes and you provided us with countless options and many opportunities to view houses with you! Also, when it came to closing you were super helpful and assisted us every step of the way… and then some!

The fact that you took us through the entire process, before, during and still after we moved. Buying our first home was not stressful at all thanks to you. You were very easy to work with and always accessible.

You were very calm and focused on the goal in the face of my short-term frustrations with the at-times daunting task of finding the needle in the haystack. You’re in it for the long haul. Even after somebody buys a house, you’ll always be their agent. Not just a purchase/sale, but relationship-driven.
Understood what I am looking for, offered very helpful suggestions, did research to find properties meeting my objectives, gave good advice, and introduced me to areas of town I did not know or had not thought of. I view you as a partner not as a sales agent, someone who will work with and for me, not just to make a sale.
Your knowledge of the neighborhoods and the city in general were very helpful throughout the process. I also appreciated how organized you are and the timely manner in which you handled my requests. Your willingness to be involved in every aspect of the process down to picking out finishes was something I had not expected and really enjoyed! You are the reason I have awesome ceiling fans! Thanks!
You weren’t pushy and you quickly grasped exactly what we wanted in a home and didn’t waste our time with homes that weren’t going to be right for us, but you also didn’t mind showing us inexpensive homes that needed a lot of work. You have a kind, calm, down to earth demeanor and your ability to see the good even in homes that need a lot of work. It was great having you throw out ideas for renovations! I think you could find the best home for any range of needs and budgets.
Debra helped me sell my house and buy another one, both in East Nashville. She was very knowledgeable about the market, was a good communicator and prompt in all our dealings. She negotiated more favorable terms for me than I would have gotten on my own. I really appreciated how calm, reassuring, and upfront she was about a process that pretty much drives me crazy. She went the extra mile, even down to connecting me with an actual helpful human being at Comcast to facilitate getting my cable service transferred on moving day. Debra is good at what she does and clearly enjoys her work. It’s great working with her.
My husband and I were new to the area and first time home buyers, and choosing to work with Debra was the very best decision we could have made. Before moving to Nashville, we worked with other realtors that were pushy, inattentive, and generally uninterested to work with young people with a smaller budget, so we were nervous about getting into the same situation here. Debra was far from all of these! She was so incredibly patient with all of our questions and made the whole process very easy to understand. We felt very comfortable with her opinions and suggestions. She was also very quick to act! Any time we wanted to look at a house, and when we were finally ready to put in our offer, Debra always got us taken care of at lightening speed. It was also very helpful that she knows so much about the Nashville area and the real estate market, especially since we are new here. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that Debra was absolutely fantastic. There wasn’t one negative thing about her service! We will use her again, and we would recommend her to anyone we know.

Debra Grimes is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! We worked together over the past 8 weeks to get the perfect property. Debra was our rock when we kept hitting the wall in a seller’s market. We believe you will find her knowledge of the market, her diligence and (most importantly) her kind spirit will be just what you want in a Realtor! When we have a need for a Realtor, or the opportunity to recommend someone, Debra will always be our first choice!
Debra assisted my parents with the sale of their longtime family home – they’re in their 80s and had never sold a home, so the whole experience was new to them. Debra is very easy-going. She explained everything clearly, helped them to understand the decisions they had to make, and was by their side all the way. We had a very tricky schedule and were nervous about timing the listing to get a sale near the time we needed one, without making them move twice. Debra understands the market and was able to sell the old house before it was officially listed (full asking price) and she negotiated a favorable transition date – their move was so much easier than it could have been. She is awesome – we have no reservations about recommending her!
About a year ago I reached out to Debra about understanding the current real estate market and the economics behind selling my home. Debra has been great during this process. She provided me with the facts and her approach was great! I met other realtors during this year long process, but she was the only person I would say my family and I felt comfortable with. Fast forward a year later (Yes she continued to stay in touch) Debra helped me put my home on the market. During the selling process she showed great expertise and skill negotiating with the bank and the appraiser on valuing my home in today’s fast pace real estate market. What has been best about the entire experience is that she had my home under contract before it hit the MLS. This saved my family a ton of stress and it is greatly appreciated. I really can’t believe how easy she made the process. Thank You!!!
In this hectic Nashville market, Debra is a calming voice of reason and knowledge. She found everything I needed, and coached me through a successful negotiation and purchase. Avoid house-hunting chaos- call Debra!
Debra is very hard working, and honest. I’m looking for a second house, using Debra as a realtor, and I always feel like her commission is the last thing on her mind. It’s great to know that she has put my interests first.
Debra helped find me a beautiful home in East Nashville. Debra was very professional, timely and coached me in making an excellent offer that secured my new home. I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase real estate in Nashville. Her knowledge of the market is a great asset. Also, she recommended a Home Warranty that has already saved me $105.47!!!
