Bought a home in 2006 in North White Plains, Greenburgh, NY 10603.

We have worked with Deb on two transactions, separated by 7 years(2006 and 2013). We'll work with her on the third, fourth. fifth etc. In other words we will work only with her and will refer anyone else who needs expert level help. Why? First, knowledge of the White Plains market. Add to that attributes such as: does her homework, listens carefully, respects your views/aspirations, doesn't waste your time or hers, realistic, unquestioned integrity. responsive(including late-at-night emails to assure a response the same day) She is the whole package, The complete pro. If you conclude we are big fans of Deb, you have read this posting well.

Bought a home in 2009 in Woodlands, Greenburgh, NY 10530.

My wife and I were in the market for our first home, and Deb was an invaluable resource. She was absolutely great, guiding us throughout the whole process, and always available to answer our questions. She was the voice of reason, guidance and wisdom that we, as first-time homebuyers, needed.

Deb is the complete professional: knowledgeable, responsive, honest, realistic, a good listener, anduses your time well. First worked with Deb in 2006. Thanks to her careful listening and knowledge of the White Plains market we bought the first apartment she showed us ( after dragging poor Deb all over Westcheste looking at other properties). The apartment she selected aced all three of our major criteria and 7 of the 8 items on our wish list, We are now looking for a second apartment and we will only work with Deb

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $700K in White Plains, NY.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Deb! She is a true professional in every sense of the word and knows the Westchester market well. Her knowledge, patience and responsiveness helped our family navigate our way through the toughest real estate market in recent history and ultimately secure a home in which we are very happy. Her no-nonsense negotiating style helped us secure our home for an acceptable price and close right on schedule. We have worked with other realtors in the region and we think it’s safe to say that Deb Altieri is the best that Westchester, and the tri-state area for that matter, has to offer.

Sold a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $400K in White Plains, NY.

Deb was recommended to us over 5 years ago when we were looking to buy in the White Plains area. When it came time for us to sell, we immediately contacted Deb and asked her to represent us again. The thought of getting another agent never crossed our mind - there was no need. Both the purchase and sale of our home turned out to be a stressful and complicated process and Deb was the only person who we trusted that had our best interests in mind. She was the one person who was truly on our side. I can't say the home buying/selling process was pleasuable, but Deb made it a whole lot easier. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell in the area.

Selling and Buying

Deborah Altieri handled the sale of my house three years ago. She was lovely to work with, offered wonderful advice on preparing the house for sale, tremendous efficiency during the negotiations, and my house sold in three days. She also helped me find my new home, with great patience and a real  willingness to explore. She was responsive and sympathetic to my needs and tastes, and working with her was an absolute pleasure.Less

Deborah (Deb) was the absolute best agent I've ever worked with! We listed and sold our home with her last year, and honestly, wouldn't have been able to do it without her! Deb felt like part of our family in that no question was silly and no email went unanswered. She made the process easy and  guided us through some difficult times and decisions. Deb was a consummate professional and is highly regarded. We felt like we were in the best hands possible and would recommend her to anyone

- May 19, 2018

We first worked with Deb in 2005 when we were looking to buy our first home. She listened to what we were looking for and kept our budget in mind. She was helpful explaining the purchasing process and guided us every step of the way. She is knowledgeable about Westchester County and helped us  get to know the area and what it had to offer. (We had lived in NJ/Manhattan prior). Then in 2013 we decided it was time for a change now that our family had grown, so we called her again but this time she had the task of helping us sell and buy a new home. We found the perfect spot for our family and like before, Deb went above and beyond to help make the process an informed and smooth one. She made time to show us everything we wanted to look at, answered questions and helped us make the selling process as easy as possible. When purchasing the new home, we had very specific needs both with budget and location and she worked with us, offered help and honest insight so that we could make the best decision for our family. She went to bat for us as sellers and buyers and it wasn't always easy but I must say, we are very happy with our new home and we're happy to call Deb a friend. We're not looking to move any time soon but I always recommend Deb without hesitation

- May 19, 2018

Deb Altieri was extremely knowledgeable, and expert, She understands the market and really knows what she is doing. She is able to explain and handle the idiosyncratic "unknowns" that can arise during the process of purchasing a home, is highly responsive regarding any questions that may arise, and  has excellent negotiation skills. I would happily use her services again and give her the highest possible recommendation

- May 19, 2018

Deb did a fabulous job of marketing and selling what was a very challenging property. She was forthcoming and ethical at every turn. We found her to be very savvy in negotiations - both with the buyers and within our family, extremely knowledgeable about the market and, in several instances,  willing to go the distance to help us through a very difficult situation. I would not hesitate for an instant to recommend Deb. She is a gem.

Debora Altieri was highly recommended by our estate attorney to place my mother's home on the market. I found Deb to be very helpful and knowledgeable to me in preparing the house that had considerable deferred maintenance. She patiently provided me a reliable shounding board in staging the house,  and even loaned me her personal accent items. Since I was traveling, she worked closely with my attorney in preparing all necessary for the closing. In short I highly recommend her as a highly professional and effective real estate agent.

Deb was instrumental in helping us purchase our home. As first time Westchester County buyers her extensive knowledge of the entire county was extremely helpful. She patiently held our hand as we narrowed our search, showed us a myriad of properties and was indispensable during the negotiating process. I would absolutely use Deb again and highly recommend her to others.

We were retiring and looking to sell our home in a timely manner in a very difficult market. This agent was very knowledgeable on how to market our home to sell and how to price our home in this depressed market. We had several open houses, color brochures distributed and listings everwhere...all done by this agent. Whenever we contacted her with questions, they were always answered in a timely manner. We sold in seven months. We recently recommended this agent to a friend and she sold their house too. This agent is hard working, very professional and knows her stuff!!!

Deb worked with us to sell our co-op and then buy our house. She was a real pleasure to work with. When trying to sell our co-op, Deb kept us motivated in a tough market. She gave honest opinions and her best advice on what steps we needed to take to get our co-op sold. When looking for our house, she listened to what we wanted in a house, while always respecting our budget. She was was patient with us and also adapted to our evolving wants. To that, Deb also kept us focused and grounded at times. We never felt like Deb was pushing us to sell or to buy "just to make the sale" - we truly felt Deb was looking out for our best interests. Buying and/or selling is a very overwhelming process. Deb helped us through every step, ensuring what we were doing, was right right us.

After wasting 30 days trying to sell our house on my own, Deb stepped in, put the plans together with our acceptance and off we went. Within 60 days, we had 5-6 offers, 2-3 weren't worth much but the others were very worthwhile and Deb helped us through the "Do's and Don'ts" as we muddled through. We were very happy with our final price, the possibility of remaining in our home until we moved and everything worked fine. Deb is the agent you want working for you.

Deb helped me and my husband purchase our first home together. She was instrumental in helping us learn about the area and chock full of info when it came to buying tactics. Years later she was also very generous with her time when it came time for us to assess whether we should renovate our home or move again. Her honesty was invaluable and helped us make an informed decision to stay, even though it would not benefit her (sales wise). She understands that doing right by people is how she can keep her existing clients and grow her business down the road. Thumbs up!
