What's your background, education and training?

I have an extensive background in interior design that has been highly beneficial to both my buyers and my sellers. I made the leap into real estate over 30 years ago, and my extensive experience in real estate is now approaching an unprecedented $2 billion in career closed sales.

What is your typical process for working with a new client?

Listen, listen and listen to your clients' needs and desires. It is very important to respect what they are looking for in a property. My willingness to work around their schedules, timelines and making sure that I am available every step of the way to help them navigate the process is critical. . .and I answer my phone!

What advice would you give a client looking to find a provider in your specialty?

Do your homework, and go with the #1 broker in your market! By aligning yourself with the #1 broker, the buyer or seller has the advantage of having access to very important market intel, which will help them make the best decisions possible, whether it is buying or selling.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

My background in interior design allows me the ability to look at properties, floor plans and design and identify where changes can be made to create value, or flow in a home where others may not be able to see past the property's current condition.

What services are you most excited to offer?

One of the privileges of working with me is my on-demand concierge service that I can offer my clients - Both buyers and sellers have access to the tried and true trades-people that will help them through the process. From builders, to attorneys, handymen to painters and plumbers, you name it - I can have the best of the best available at their disposal in a very timely fashion!

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a client?

"...will you marry me?"
After pitching a listing, going through a very detailed CMA presentation and sharing my stats, a gentleman turned to me and said, ""....Will you marry me"

What makes your business stand apart?

I maintain a high level of professionalism. I am available 24/7 and I am always fresh and forward in my thinking and my approach to the way that I market a listing and work with the changing needs of my clients.

How many years have you been in business?

Over thirty years.

What do clients have to say about you?

"1) From selling my home to helping find a home that matched everyone of our checkpoints, working with Debi could not have been more perfect! Debi is literally one of the most professional people with whom I have worked. What is more impressive is her ability to also be caring and sensitive during the home buying and selling process. She also worked hard to get us the best deal on both transactions. I can easily recommend her and her team!

2)Debi was instrumental in the purchase of our home. On extremely short notice she made herself available to guide us in our thinking and help us to win a competitive process where we were second to the table and disadvantaged in some respects. Her knowledge of the property/neighborhood and relationships with the selling broker, seller, and builder was beyond impressive and very useful. After the accepted offer, Debi mediated a difficult issue that came up during the P&S negotiation. Straight through to the close she was always readily available and focused on our needs and ultimate satisfaction. She works incredibly hard, has the expertise that matters, and it was a pleasure working with her. I believe that without Debi’s help our deal would not have materialized or would have fallen apart on the way to the finish line
3)Debi Benoit runs a First-Class firm!!!

We have referred multiple friends to her practice since she took on our listing and sold our home (the ultimate testament). We found Debi to be extremely professional and organized, and she posseses tremendous local market knowledge. After spending just a few minutes with Debi, we quickly realized why she is #1 in sales every year.
We found Debi (and her team) to be gracious, professional & drama free. There is a stark difference between Realtors who do it as a hobby, versus those who work hard at their craft to run a truly professional Real Estate firm.
