With minor negotiation, we were under contract within two days of listing. Very satisfied with the overall sales experience because of Deb Forte¿s congenial and professional skills. ~ Dennis H, Londonderry, NH
    We¿re so glad deb Forte worked with us to sell our house! She is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and professional real estate agent that gets the job done. She has an excellent team backing her and knew the market here in southern New Hampshire well. Our house was priced right and sold quickly even though we listed at a less than ideal time of year. She was available anytime we had questions and her guidance made the process of selling much less stressful than we were expecting. I can¿t say enough good things about Deb Forte and the team at Century 21 Northeast. If you¿re looking for one of the best agents out there look no further than Deb Forte. If it weren¿t for Deb we¿d still be in our starter home, but now as a result of her hard work we¿re proudly in our dream home! F ~ Scott Robertson - Plaistow NH

    I can't imagine Working with anyone else than Deb Forte...She went above and beyond to make sure we found our vision of our new home. She always made us feel like we were her only client, always available and always patient. The amount of time given to us was commendable.....always there for us. ~ Maureen and Thomas Clemens
    We saw a listing in an area that held great interest to us so I called the listing agent, Deb Forte. She answered her phone right away and took the time to talk with me and was able to set up a showing the next day which met our schedule. Right there and then I knew this was an agent that I was impressed with. When we met her at the house, she was wonderful. She answered all our questions and told us things about the community that we did not already know. She matched our excitement! She told us about another home in the same area that was for sale and we were able to go and see that house too to compare it to what we had just seen. It made the original house shine all the more! Deb Forte was awesome. She told us there were other buyers looking at the house and to think things over carefully. As it turned out, we loved the house, made our offer and to our delight it became ours. I would highly recommend Deb Forte to anyone looking to list or buy a home. In fact, we also are listing our current home with Deb. She did such a great job on our new purchase, we are sure that she will do even more in selling our current home! ~ Sharon Henlin, Dracut, MA
    Excellent overall service! Deb did an excellent catering to our needs! Highly recommended experience. ~ Ken Camille
    Excellent job marketing the property and finding the right type of buyer! Deb was excellent! Awesome agent! Top Notch! ~ Ken Camille
    Deb was an amazing agent. I dealt with two other agents during my search and due to my age they were uncooperative treating me as if i was not serious about buying a house. Deb then came into the picture and blew me away with her professionalism and way she treated me as if I was buying a $2million house and was one of her top buyers. Since I was 2000 miles away it is very hard to look at houses, Deb would set up times that we could video chat the houses and do a tour of the houses remotely. Since Deb was there in person she would point out things that we could not see as clearly on the video and give her thoughts. Deb constantly would keep in touch about new house options and the areas that we were looking. We scheduled our flight to come look at houses within a week and she made sure to have houses lined up and ready when we got there. Once we were there we continued to add houses and were able to see many more houses same day as we saw the listing. Deb knew the area very well and told us areas to avoid and how far I would be from my job and good stores. Deb went above and beyond what we expected from a realtor and due to the market she had to be checking listings on a daily basis. I would strongly recommend using Deb Forte if you are in her area. ~ Stephen Mulligan, Derry NH
    Thank you Debbie for your excellent explanation and knowledge to explain to me in this first time purchase home.... ~ Chamroeun heng
    Deb, We couldn¿t have picked a better realtor for our condo. Your enthusiasm and positive attitude was the best, when I was loosing faith for not getting an offer! Once the two offers came in at once you guide us for the best and negotiated the best price. You and your team handle the closing very accurate and professionally. Telling all the neighbors how great you are! Thank you and wish all your dreams come true! Maria ~ Maria from APW homes
    We had an extremely difficult task in trying to find a home with a time restraint low budget in a high-budget town. Deb found us a home that is just unbelievable in the town in for the price. I am so in love with my new house and so glad that I had a team that included Deb Forte! ~ Tony K..... Kovy Winthrop
    Deb Forte is a phenomenal realtor and a true leader in the field of real estate. She has assisted me with several real estate transactions over the past few years. She remains very positive and strong throughout all the difficult situations that can arise during a real estate transaction. Most notably, she is extremely resourceful and has exceptional problem solving skills. She saved me from a foreclosure because of her resourcefulness, I was able to fix some of the required repairs in order to close and I still walked away with a small profit. She is the best and I would never work with any other realtor. ~ Angela Roberts, Pembroke, NH
    Deb was so incredibly easy to work with and made this very competitive process as smooth as possible for my fiance and me. We saw a lot of houses over the last year or so and as soon as we found "the one," Deb got to work to help us win! She is an excellent agent with a lot of savvy, expertise, and a strong reputation among all the other folks we worked with in this process. We couldn't recommend her highly enough! ~ Liz, Lowell
    Deb Forte is Very personable, has a big heart and integrity. You know she really cares about you and your needs and you feel like you¿re her top priority. I am extremely satified! Thank you Deb! Can¿t say enough! I believe if she wasn¿t my broker I wouldn¿t have gotten my home of my dreams.. Deb went above and beyond to help me at a crital point of a bidding war and was Successful!!! She has made a A Big Difference in my life!!! ~ Audrey Mottola Saugus, Ma
    Couldn¿t ask for a better real estate agent. Deb Forte was incredible to work with, very accommodating and always had my best interest in mind. The ease of purchasing my home was unbelievable due to Deb Forte and her incredible effort. I can¿t say enough good things about Deb and her service! She rocks and when I¿m ready to purchase another home in the future I would use no one else! By the way did I say she was incredible?! ~ Tobias Overlock, Salem,NH
    I had worked with Deb when purchasing my recent sale 5 years ago and she was absolutely fabulous and always has been! Debbie is a fabulous realtor and far exceeds expectations. Rock on Deb keep up the great work! You¿re awesome! ~ Mely Figueroa
    After a few "let downs" in selling our condo,we decided to go with another realtor as soon as our contract was finished. And am I glad we did!!! Deb Forte was truly amazing! She put it right back on the market and we sold it for more than we anticipated.And sold it sooner than expected. Bravo Deb! She is a true Realestate professional and loves what she does.She is punctual,aggresive and knows how to get the job done!And she has a great team as well! Thank you Deb..You ROCK! i will recomend her for all our friends and famlies real estate needs. She is the best!
    Nobody cares more about her clients than Deb and her partner Bill. They rock, they roll and most importantly they get their clients the best possible price for their new home or investment property. Superior customer service and 24/7 availability as needed enhance the overall experience for buyers and sellers. No details are too small. We love working with Deb
    It is my pleasure to recommend Deb Forte to anyone looking to hire the highest quality Relator on the market. Deb is an experienced, knowledgeable Relator who truly cares for her clients and their property needs. She is honest, dependable, committed to her client from the beginning of the whole process through and after Closing. Deb is â¿¿hands-onâ¿¿ standing beside her client no matter what obstacles, challenges and realities her client faces when selling their property. I truly do not know what I would have done without Deb Forte as my Relator Agent when selling my single family home that held many happy, loving memories from raising my children. Debâ¿¿s stamina and optimism inspired me. Her sense of humor helped me laugh and to â¿¿stay the courseâ¿¿. Deb Forte is Golden. She will take good care of you to successfully negotiate a profitable Closing Settlement. Thank you, Deb! Sincerely, Karen Dieruf
    We purchased a home at the end of 2016 utilizing Deb Forte and her team. This is the second transaction utilizing her services, the first time being in 2007. We were from out of state and the search took a number of months to identify the right home to meet our needs and requirements. Both Deb and her partner Bill are very knowledgeable about the homes in New England. They never wavered and always made time to show us properties until we finally settled on the one that we ultimately purchased. Her local connections with financing options enabled us to obtain that enabled us to obtain the most advantageous financing available on the market including on the national level. We highly recommend Deb and her team for your real estate needs. She will be our first call when we are ready for our next real estate transaction.
    Attempting a short sale purchase without an outstanding buyer⿿s agent is a waste of time. Deb was a true advocate for our family throughout the whole process. Deb promptly returns all calls, gets answers ASAP, finds solutions for seemingly insurmountable obstacles, and does it all with a smile. Deb has the ultimate ⿿can do⿝ attitude, and motivated everyone involved to make this deal happen. I sincerely feel that only 1 in 1000 real estate agents would have gotten us this deal and managed to get it closed in time for my daughter to start the school year at her new school. Deb is that needle in a haystack. A home purchase is a major life event; don⿿t leave it up to a friend of a friend. We were never left to fend for ourselves. Deb was extremely flexible and was fantastic about scheduling things like inspections, second and third viewings, and of course the closing. She was very deadline conscious, making sure everything was done ahead of schedule. She coordinated the mortgage company, the shortsale bank, the attorneys, the inspectors, and even the other agent who was on vacation at the time of the closing. Deb⿿s assistance didn⿿t stop at closing; she even negotiated a great deal from a plumber for me! With the market the way it is, and deals constantly falling through, don⿿t leave things to chance; go with a top notch professional.
    Deb Forte is an amazing realtor! Deb was our realtor in buying our first home. As first time home buyers it was so assuring to have a realtor like Deb that ALWAY had our best interest at heart. The amount of time Deb took out of her schedule to review homes we were possibly interested in. She would go over the area (neighborhoods) schools, houses that we shouldn't bother seeing. Also at closing she made sure we had a great closing lawyer that would take good care of us which he did as well. I cannot express how wonderful Deb is and how easy she made buying our first home. With all the stress and time involved she made it easy! You will be so happy with Deb as your realtor and you'll be treated like family!
    Deb Forte came to us through ZipRealty....we were moving from the South Shore to the North Shore and didn't know much about the area. Deb listened to what type of home we were looking for and researched areas/towns that would best fit our commutes to work. Deb also recommended local attractions and restaurants, which we probably would not have gone to on our own. When we ran into problems with the sale of our home, Deb was there to calm our nerves and assure us that everything would be fine. She always kept in contact with us, our attorney, the seller of our new home and his realtor. Without Deb's help, we probably would have just given up and stayed put. We would definitley seek Deb out, if we ever move again.
    Deb was extremely friendly and great to work with. She was very accommodating and knew exactly what we were looking for. We absolutely LOVE the house she found for us, and would highly recommend Deb to anyone looking in Southern NH or Northern Mass.
    extremely dedicated to putting the deal together ! stays in constant contact with both seller, buyer and other brokers. even after many disappointing listings and offer refusals deb never gave up in finding me the right home. that speaks volumes to a purchaser. in todays world/market im sorry to say a broker dose not have to do really any hard work other than maybe show up to sell a house ! deb stills works every deal and sale to the bitter end. I recommend her to everyone and anybody I know buying or selling there home simply put.....there is no better :)
    Deb Forte was an amazing sales agent highly recommend using for all your buying and selling needs. She was very attentive to our needs and advertised our very unique home to the right audience. Hosting agent luncheons and open houses . She covers all and everything you need and want in a realtor. She is hardworking, driven and there for you every step of the way
    Deb showed or arranged for us to view numerous properties over a wide geographic area, almost all of which I found myself and requested to see. The one we bought was being flipped by someone who worked in her office (reportedly at the next desk), and it seemed like the tables turned as soon as we made our offer, to seem like she had his interests in mind more than ours. High marks for local knowledge because the location is perfect for us. It would seem that an agent of her caliber would have been able to identify what the little plugs were all over the wood floors (previous termite treatment system), but she was silent when I mentioned them in wonderment on more than one occasion. It would seem that an expert realtor would have some awareness of current fireplace codes, and be able to determine that ours is unusable. It would seem that someone working on our behalf could have identified that the swimming pool is only 3-4 feet deep, even though we purchased in March (our neighbor has since told us that he made the depth of the pool very clear to the flippers). It would seem that, given the fact that "a workman" was living in one of the bedrooms when we viewed the house until immediately prior to purchase that there may have been some knowledge of the sewer issues that cost us $5,000 within a month, and are not right yet (there was a shower curtain up in the recently renovated house, so clearly the shower was being used). If you choose to work with Deb, be relentless about getting answers to your questions and working to uncover every detail about a house before you buy from her.
    Deb Forte was the second realtor we chose to help us sell our home. I certainly wish we would have found her the first time around. She was extremely professional and responsive to our needs. It didn't matter to Deb that our house was not a top $$ home. She mad you feel as though you were her only client. I would highly recommend working with Deb and if the need arises in the future I would go back to her in a heartbeat.
    Debbie is very exceptionally gifted to provide the client all her real eastate insight, out of the box thinking, honest opinion, can do approach, pleasant personality, and hans-on experience. So far, she is the best real estate agent I ever worked with. She helped me to buy and sell several luxary houses in Andover in last 3 years. I rest her the best ( 10 out of 10) who really has reat passion for every aspects of her profession.

    This agent is soooo good I would recommend my mother to her! She is excellent at her job, easy to reach, and she made things run so smoothly for my husband and I. Buying a home is complicated task with a lot of people involved but with Deb it was simple. Also being a first time home buyer, the process seemed almost too difficult to understand alone but she guided us through each step. I would love to thank her again for everything she did for us.
    Deb was personable, knowledgeable, and patient with us. A very thoughtful Realtor looking out for your needs. I highly recommend her! Get a Realtor and make a new friend!! Highly likely to recommend!
    Deb gave us sound advice on how to market our home to sell quickly and at the highest price. She always responded promptly to questions and or requests for info. Very knowledgeable and personable!! I would highly recommend!

    Deb is fabulous! She helped me purchase my home and sell it 5 years later. She is very knowledgeable and she definitely works hard for her clients. She made both buying and selling as easy and stress free as possible. I highly recommend Deb and she is the only Realtor I would ever use. Thank you for all of your hard work Deb, and I look forward to working with you again!
    My experience with Deb and William was wonderful. When I found a house (that turned out to be "the house") it was their quick response time and smart negotiation skills that got our offer accepted. They even went out of their way at night to drop off our offer in the listing agent's mailbox! I highly recommend working with Deb and William! They are excellent!
    Dave s REVIEW of having deb help me sell my house ,was that she was always there to take my call or call me back when I left her a message.Deb was always very professional and knowledgeable in giving me the answers I needed.I felt she can be trusted, very dedicated to helping you with your needs and if you ever get the chance to have deb help you in selling or buying a house you will never be disappointed

    ou're not going to find a more knowledgable or personable realtor than Deb when going through the stressful task of buying or selling a home. She makes you feel confident with the while process and she really listens and looks out for your needs. I've used Deb to sell to properties and to purchase my dream home. Highly recommend! Cindy -
    As a first time home buyer, I was excited yet very nervous about the whole buying process. I had no idea what I was supposed to do. Upon meeting Deb ( for the first time)- all my anxiety was laid to rest. She immediately put me at ease and somehow from that moment— I knew I was in good hands! Deb is very knowledgeable,understanding, and truly wants to go above and beyond to achieve her client’s goal.i just couldn’t believe how effortless ( on my part) it was to buy my beautiful home. Honestly, with Deb, buying my house was less stressful than buying a new car. Unlike buying a car; I walked away knowing that I really did get a good deal! I highly recommend Deb— you will NOT be disappointed. Geri

    Our experience with Deb has been outstanding and I would recommend her without hesitation. My wife and I were on a very aggressive timeline to make an offer and close on time, and Deb naturally understood our needs and timeline. In fact, we put an offer on a home within 10 days from being introduced to Deb, and then closed about 30 days later. Deb educated us, listened well, and then aggressively executed our plan of screening houses via MLS, setting up showings, and iteratively modified our direction as we quickly learned and narrowed our focus. We have moved into our house and love it. Deb continues to be available for questions that arise and is truly interested in us as her clients. Thank you, Deb
