Debbie was always on the ball. Every time I sent her a request for additional information about a property she sent that information within 24 hrs., sometimes within the hour. We live in GA currently, and let me tell you looking for property in a different state is not easy! Thankfully Debbie made it all very easy. When my husband finally made it up to PA to look at the land we were interested in she had a wealth of information for us :) The information was about the local schools, builders (we bought a lot), and the area activities. Closing was a breeze and there where no hiccups, she and her staff really have a well oiled machine.
Debbie was instrumental in helping me purchase a condo in State College in the midst of the pandemic in spring 2020. In addition to very limited ability to view properties and no open houses, I was living 700 miles away at the time and unable to get to Pennsylvania. She provided me with weekly listings of available properties and sought out others that might be coming on the market in the future. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area and the market and offered suggestions on condos she felt would meet my needs. When we located properties that seemed appropriate, she set up video tours and quickly wrote up offers on those I was interested in. She was so quick in her responses that I felt like I was her only client. In just a few months we had an accepted offer and closed less than six months after starting the process. I felt she was always looking out for my interests and gave me honest assessments of each property. Through the process she was always positive and encouraging. I would highly recommend Debbie to anyone seeking a buyer’s agent in the area.
Debbie Scitti was very helpful in the selling of our home. We had been in our home 43 years and didn't know where to start. Debbie basically held our hand through the whole process. She also helped us find a new home, which we love. Debbie is very professional and knowledgeable. We couldn't of done it without her!
Debbie Scitti was instrumental in helping me find my new home. Debbie has expert understanding of the region and the housing market. As a first-time home buyer, she guided me through each phase of the home buying process. Debbie listened to my initial home requests/needs, and patiently helped me weigh the pros and cons of each home that I toured. I knew I could always trust Debbie’s feedback and words of wisdom. Her personable and hands-on approach helped ease my apprehensions.
In addition, I appreciated the many resources and professional contacts Debbie had at her disposal to help me finance my home, conduct the home inspections, and make the necessary repairs prior to closing. I highly recommend working with Debbie Scitti for your next home purchase!
Debbie was absolutely fantastic! She was diligent on finding houses that met our requirements. She was always available in a short amount of time to set up a showing. And once we decided on a house, she made the buying process as simple as it possibly could be. And when there were negotiations over price and inspection, it was obvious she had our best interests in mind and went to bat for us every time! On top of all that she is pleasant, funny, and a joy to work with.
I couldn't recommend her enough. You will absolutely not regret choosing Debbie as your realtor.
Debbie is incredible. Full stop. We started working with Debbie almost a year ago when my fiancé and I embarked on purchasing our first home. We had a long list of wants (as most folks do when starting) and Debbie took everything in stride gathering every detail we wanted and instantly began working to help us achieve our goal. Not only did we have a list of long wants - but shortly into the search, we also had some life changes that precipitated the need to begin looking beyond just the local real estate market. Any normal realtor could have easily said no thanks to our shift in needs - but Debbie was on board right from the get. She knew what and where we needed to be and she began networking to find us the best options possible. Never once did she complain about the added distance and time that this would incur - she simply said “we will find the right house for you” and kept trucking day after day. She went above and beyond meeting us when and wherever we needed and wanted, always cheerful, honest, and insightful with every showing. We spent months trying to find what would fit our family and house after house just didn’t work. But again - never once did Debbie stop her efforts, never gave up, and most importantly - didn’t let us give up. Even after we found a house we wanted - put in an offer - and had the sellers back out twice because they changed their mind on selling their house at all - Debbie kept our spirits high. Debbie is the real deal and whether you are buying or selling ... do yourself a favor and work with Debbie. She is simply put, the best. You will not find another agent who is as dedicated, hard working, caring, and wonderful and Debbie. We are now in our ‘forever home’ and it truly could not have happened without all the help, effort, and care we received from Debbie.
Really appreciate the kid gloves treatment we received from Debbie Scitti in finding our home in Happy Valley. We were on a short timeline to find housing and Deb went above and beyond to assist us in meeting our housing needs. So pleased that we chose ReMax and Debbie to do our legwork to find a great location that that was close to the amenities we desired. If it comes time one day to sell, we know exactly where we will go for support--back to Debbie. Thanks for being a friend and for your professionalism!
Debbie was the very first realtor to contact us when we started looking into purchasing a house in Happy Valley. We decided it would be best for us to wait until next year to purchase a home. Debbie was not pushy in any way and gave us our space until we were ready. During our house hunting search, Debbie was always available, patient and ready to give her honest input when needed. We loved this. Our mortgage program was on the tricky side, but Debbie was willing to navigate through it like a pro. We knew we needed a fixer-upper, and Debbie was able to see the possibilities. When we finally found our home, the sellers needed to settle FAST. It was a whirlwind of back-and-forth negotiating! Debbie handled it was ease. We weren't sure if we'd find a house, let alone one that we liked. Now we're settling into our home and loving it! Debbie started as our realtor and is now someone our family considers a friend.
Debbie successfully helped us purchase a home about a month ago in the Bald Eagle State Park area. During our first interaction, Debbie was able to add me to a mailing list from which I received homes in my locations of interest that were priced in a reasonable range for our family. She also personally suggested homes to me. I made a list of three homes I was interested in possibly pursuing and, within the next two days, we had our boots on the ground checking them out.
Not only was Debbie quick to respond to our needs, she also took calls/texts at all hours of the day to accommodate my work schedule. She moved everything along quickly and made sure that we were getting necessary repairs for our home as well as a good price. I would recommend Debbie and would use her again in the future if needed.
My husband and I recently purchased our very first home, Debbie Scitti was our realtor and at the end of this process, I'm fortunate to call her our friend. Debbie's professionalism, knowledge, honesty and ability to listen, are much respected and appreciated. Above all Debbie's mentorship and guidance through the process was always at the forefront and what we needed most. We never felt that she was just trying to sell us a house, but that she was a mentor to answer our questions and help us to make the best decision for our family. I am forever grateful to Debbie for ushering us through the process from start to finish. Now that we are homeowners, we plan to encourage all of our friends to seek Debbie whenever they plan to purchase or sell property!
I have had the pleasure of knowing Debbie Scitti for several years. Debbie is an exceptional, respected individual in our community and was very helpful in listing and facilitating the sale of our property. She is upfront and honest, takes initiative and did an excellent job of communicating details from start to finish. I would highly recommend her in the future. -Zac
