Debra Agostinelli is attentive, professional, and a fantastic negotiator. We had a very tough list of must haves, and she found our dream home on Lake Norman, and brought it in under asking price in a red hot market. Debra is a valued friend thanks to integrity, respect, kindness and action. Highly recommended! Tim Taylor
