You can trust Debbie Kirkland to get the job done, with integrity!
Very knowledgeable very professional great to work with. Past Customer!
Debbie Kirkland is great at what she does, works hard, has a great personality and is very smart. She has is extremely trustworthy and I would trust her professionally and personally every day of the week! Great Real Estate Company too!
I'm a real estate consultant, specializing in third party market studies for apartment developers / investors / owner refinancing / etc. I called Debbie on Friday evening after general business hours and in less than one hour she sent me a fabulous package of more than what I asked for. Her friendliness and willingness to help were just stunning. She knew I wasn't a buyer and its just a part of work I'm doing, but she put herself out to help me. I can fully understand why she is as successful as she is from the way she genuinely and happily helped me. May the Lord Jesus bless and keep you and your family Thanks Debbie!!
Debra Kirkland was very informative while guiding me through my first home sale. It was times I felt frustrated through the process, from no fault of her own, and she made sure we found a solution to each hiccup we encountered. I looked forward to speaking to her throughout the ordeal because she had a way to make the process smoother with her knowledge. I highly recommended her!
Us being out of town...Debra's team saved us a huge headache by doing everything to get the house turn key ready in such a short period of time!
Debbie Kirkland and her assistant Holly were the consummate professionals and kept us informed and updated every step of the wAy. They made a stressful process go very smoothly and we appreciate their help!
Debra did an excellent job. She had some challenges to work with and did a great job of keeping everyone on track.
Very satisfied with our experience. Would recommend Debbie to others seeking to sell a home. We needed to sell our home in a hurry and Debbie represented us to ensure we achieved fair value for our home.
Debbie Kirkland is the best. I would only use her, and would strongly suggest to anyone that they should contact Debbie if they were thinking about selling or buying.
Thank you SO much Debbie for guiding us through selling our old house and buying our new one. We were confident enough to just let Debbie make all the decisions and just get out of her way.
Thank you so much for all of your support and hard work Debbie Kirkland, I appreciate you and all you did for my family.
Debbie was excellent -- easy to work with, responsive, and knowledgeable about the local real estate market. I would recommend her to anyone.
I needed a quick purchase and quick closing. Debbie handled finding the property, introduction to a lender that could meet our expectations, and saw it through to the closing. She is an expert, trustworthy and clearly communicates expectations so there are no surprises. The best in the business.
The thought of being burdened with the sale of my father's house was causing me to procrastinate and put off the inevitable. Debra and her team made this task such a simple and quick process. And in the end, I was able to get more out of the house after closing then I would have if I had sold the house myself.
Deb Kirkland, Lance Ball, and Hollie Myers made buying my house an easy an
easy experience. There are a lot of little details to keep track of during this
process and they made it work. I have bought homes over the years and
have a pretty good understanding what it takes to get it done and they never
missed a beat. I will use them again when it is time for me to sell.
When I decided to purchase a home and sell my home almost simultaneously, I knew Debbie was the committed professional that would see me through this process.
The technology utilized by Debbie and her team assured me that my property was being marketed the very best it could be. The short time it took to sell is a testament to Debbie's strategic marketing insight.
A phenomenal professional. Communicated through the entire process to ensure I had the details I needed. The process was seamless because of Debbie's attention to detail. I felt like I was her only customer because she was so attentive. Will use her again and would certainly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Debbie went above and beyond to ensure that I was happy with my home purchases. She worked hard regardless of the time or day of the week. Because I do not live in Florida, she extended her time and services, even during her off times. That was much appreciated. I am also impressed with her knowledge of the Tallahassee area. I would truly recommend Debbie to family members or friends looking to buy or sell a home.
We lived in Tallahassee from 1997 to 2000. We had two property transactions with realtors Kevin Davis and Reagan Hobbs. When we told Kevin we were considering buying the condo at the Cloisters, and Debbie Kirkland was the transaction broker, he assured us we were in the very best of hands.
We could not have been more pleased with the entire process.
I have known Debra Kirkland for many, many years and she is very knowledgeable in the local real estate market. This was a difficult property to sell and she did a great job.
I have already recommended Debra to others and will continue to do so. She and her staff are very helpful.
I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the speedy, efficient, and deliberate approach you took for the sale of my home at 664 Riggins Road. For your outstanding professional assistance, I am truly blessed.
Hollie was excellent in all facets of our interaction her. She's a true professional, knowledgeable of the local market, easy to communicate with, and just a pleasure in general. She made herself available based on our schedule, which included weekends and after business hours. We love our new home and would definitely work with Hollie again.
I would highly recommend utilizing the services of Tom Hutchinson if you are looking to sell or buy a home in the Tallahassee area. Tom is a consummate professional & extremely knowledgeable in the processing of real estate transactions. Tom's attention to detail & responsiveness made this the easiest real estate transaction I've done over the past few decades. Being an out of town buyer; Tom handled numerous inspections for me & provided countless hours of video walkthroughs. Tom does an extraordinary job in the negotiation phase of a real estate transaction. A+ all around- I plan to utilize Tom Hutchinson & Century 21 First Story for all of my future real estate transactions (personal & investment).
I have owned a few homes and bought and sold properties in my lifetime. Debbie by far has been the most attentive, accessible and knowledgable realtor that I have worked with. She has outstanding customer service in that I felt like I was her only client. When I buy or sell in town again, Debbie will be my first phone call.
We are so thankful to have found Debbie! She led us through the process of buying our first home. She was available and spent so much time with us in a short amount of time when we were in town as we were relocating. She communicated clearly in between our trips to Tallahassee, which was important as we were out of state. She was SO patient in answering our endless questions and discussing our concerns. She gave her honest opinion about the homes we were looking at. We know that she really cared about our well being and wanted the best for us. She is well connected in the community and that is helpful after the purchase of the home! I fully recommend Debbie to everyone. She is easy to work with, very personable and professional!

“Debbie is a real "Go Getter!" when she sets her sights on something - it get's accomplished. If she can't do it she'll find someone who can. She makes things happen! If you want to make that deal happen there's one person I'll suggest you call - That's Debbie!” June 2, 2010
Debbie Thanks so much for EVERYTHING you and Lisa did for Marc & I! You made the first-time homebuyer process easier than we could have hoped. Even with our very few “bumps” along the way, it still felt like a pretty smooth process. And we are extremely grateful for your recommendation of Lesa as a lender because she helped tremendously with the financial side of it. We never once felt lost or unguided and it was such a relief knowing we could call any three of you with the questions we had and not have to worry if the advice was good or in our best interest. Also, Marc and I were talking and from a buyer’s perspective, we don’t know if you realize how perfectly you and Lisa work together! You both weaved in out of each step seamlessly yet never left us wondering which of the two we should talk to since you were both so readily accessible. We felt Lisa perfectly handled the emotional side of it all (through the initial searching, meetings, inspections, etc) but when it was time to get down to the meat and bones of the deal with the offer, counter offers, inspection addendums, etc., you stepped in with your strengths and focused on the business side of it all. The balance really made for a great experience for us! Thanks again for everything and we’ll be recommending your services to everyone!

Having Debbie as my realtor was just an awesome experience! I was overwhelmed by many things happening in my life all at once, but the process of home buying-which even at 48 I had never done and scared the life out of me to do by myself-was remarkably easy with her in control!
- She took the time to go through the processes involved using easy-to-understand language;
- She took time in helping me choose which of the homes I was seriously interested in to look at;
- She helped with my financial institution people when they were not stepping up to the plate in a timely manner; and
- She really took charge when I needed it most and skillfully guided me through all the steps of home buying!
I can honestly never thank her enough for helping me get the wonderful little home that I love-it has made all the difference in my life! I never hesitate to recommend her to friends and strangers alike who need a realtor. And it doesn't hurt that we have a common interest in motorcycling and both ride Harleys! Thank you Debbie, and you are welcome in my home ANY time!
