Deborah Fowler and her team at Colorado Landmark Realtors did a great job selling our house. From preparation of the house for sale through to the closing she was engaged in the details and it felt like she was available 24/7 to promptly deal with issues or answer questions. We were working on a tight time frame which made the process stressful but Deborah’s consistently positive attitude combined with her responsiveness made the whole process much easier. As stated, her team was also an important factor and they either helped us deal with (or just dealt with) the many tasks involved with selling our home. In the end, we had multiple offers, were able to close very quickly and we were very happy with Deborah as our agent.
Deb Fowler and her team pulled all stops when marketing our home, starting with providing a stager, exchanging furniture, making recommendations to enhance the strengths of our home and providing collateral and a strong online presence. Deb was always willing to try whatever we could to gain exposure, including regularly scheduled open houses, of which one resulted in our sale. She is deliberate, flexible and easy to work with. We are very appreciative of she and her team’s tenacity to sell our home.
We had a home that turned out to be very difficult to sell. Deb and her team kept at it and worked extremely hard to find the right buyer and in the end we received a full price offer. Thanks for the perseverance.
Deb Fowler and her real estate team are truly in a league of their own! Their in-depth knowledge of the various neighborhoods, local markets and their genuine concern for our personal best interest are truly amazing. They put our needs as the top priority and were available any hour of the day or night to run down answers. I can’t say enough about their professionalism, attention to details, knowledge of our real estate market and willingness to help with any and all items. They were always at least three steps ahead and made our real estate transaction truly easy and enjoyable.
Deb’s previous corporate background is readily apparent in how she set up her business to lead by customer experience and professionalism.
Deb Fowler is absolutely amazing. She single-handedly made my home buying experience smooth and enjoyable. I believe that I was awarded with the winning bid to purchase the home from the sellers in part because of Deb’s reputation for steadfastness and professionalism. She has an impeccable reputation and for good reason. It was also a pleasure to work with and meet her team. Overall a wonderful experience and I am so very thankful to have found Deb as my real estate expert and now friend.
Deb and her team are wonderful. If you are hesitating at all regarding engaging her, don’t! From start to finish Deb goes above and beyond. From small touches, such as beautifying the home for open houses, to making sure your big headaches are taken care of (such as organizing all needed repairs or maintenance items related to inspection objections), she and her team make sure everything is taken care of. I know it wasn’t easy for them at times, but the sale of my home felt easy with her at the helm. When negotiations became challenged from time to time, she was the consummate professional, shepherding all parties to a positive resolution. Beyond that, she is just an incredible human being who will positively impact your life with her positive and upbeat attitude and warm and infectious personality. I recommend Deb without any reservations. You should absolutely consider her first and only!
Deb and team were absolutely terrific to work with from listing to close. They were incredibly professional in marketing our home from the photographs to the flyers and other amenities for showings. They truly had the extra special touches that really made this a first class experience. We would absolutely work with the team again.
For us, selling our home was an emotional roller coaster. It was our first as homeowners, it’s where we raised our children, made many friends and watched Niwot grow into a great community for over the 25 years. Entering back into the real estate market was unnerving. We were looking for someone who would “hold our hand” throughout the process and be our trusted advisor.
We chose Deborah, not only because of her reputation, but once we met with her, we saw her commitment to detail, honesty and caring. Deborah walked us through step-by-step. She was always there for us, even when she was out of the country we had daily calls. Her assessment of the value of our house was spot-on. In a matter of days, our house was sold at full price! Whether buying or selling a home, we highly recommend Deborah and her team, led by Gillian. They exceed our expectations.
Debs was a delight to work with she was efficient and understanding and went to all lengths when it mattered to get the job done correctly and fight for us.
I would definitely use her again and recommend anyone to do so. Her kind friendly and generous manner made the process so smooth and effortless
Thanks Deborah 🙂
We were extremely pleased with Deb and her team. The service was professional, efficient, and high quality at all times. Her real estate expertise combined with her extensive knowledge of local service providers greatly facilitated the sale of one property and the purchase of another simultaneously. She’s the best agent we’ve ever had!
I sold a small rental condo in Niwot and was very impressed with Deborah and her team working with me, the buyer and the renter. Due to the renter, this could have been very difficult but Deborah helped find him a new rental! They are all very helpful, understanding, active listeners, and seasoned professionals. It was a great experience when this could have been horrible. THANK YOU!!
Deborah is a top Real Estate agent with a great understanding of Boulder county market conditions. she has a very likeable personality, and a long with her team will always get the job done, as she did for us. After selling our home in Niwot we will always want Deborah for any future real estate needs.
Deb was amazing to work with! She brought incredible local market knowledge to our search for a home in Niwot whilst simultaneously helping us get the best price for the home we were selling in Louisville. She achieved the impossible by securing closings on both homes on the SAME DAY! She never gave up fighting for us and I cannot imagine going through the whole sell & buy process with ANYONE ELSE by my side. I would heartily recommend Deborah to anyone buying or selling in the Boulder County area!
Working with Deborah and her team was amazing! Always super efficient, Deborah consistently worked on everything with great detail and care. Deborah is very good for negotiating and was able to sell my house very fast! They are the best people to work with, and I would seriously recommend them for all of your house selling and buying needs.
Deb is amazing. Our house needed repairs, and we are out of state, Deb knew who to contact and how to get things done. She certainly made our lives easy! The house went in and out of contract for a variety of reasons, but Deb finally made it work. She is always up beat and thinking about how to get the deal done. We recommend Deb without any reservations. If you are looking for an effect listing agent, you should consider Deb first!
She works extraordinarily hard and really has the ‘hustle’ factor! She got right on our listing using all avenues to speedily and efficiently get our house ‘out there’. This is a woman who loves her job and it shows in her incredible results. If you’re buying or selling, you want Deborah on your team.
As soon as we put our house on the market, the market took a downturn. But Deb was awesome through the entire process and guided us beautifully through prepping, marketing and selling our home. Her team was stellar and they staged our home gorgeously! She led us through the many ups and downs of real estate and was always cheerful, sweet and upbeat – no matter what obstacles we faced. I now consider her a dear friend. She gets our highest praise.
Working with Deb and her team at DRF Realtors was an excellent experience from beginning to end! Everyone at DRF was so friendly, helpful, prompt in answering questions, knowledgeable and always professional. The sale of our Niwot property was complicated by our international move, but even dealing with a 7 hour time difference, was not a problem for Deb’s team. They took away so much stress for us from stylish staging, beautifully produced brochures and video, recommending and liaising with contractors and keeping us informed at every stage in the process. We truly can not recommend Deb and her team more highly … the true definition of customer service!
5 Stars out of 5. We met with several agents before we found Deborah. The others had a simple formula to sell our house: price it way below market. Deborah had a much better formula: (1) Give us an honest estimate based on a thorough knowledge of the market; (2) Come in with an excellent team to fix up the cosmetics, from cleaning the carpet to replacing the mailbox, all for less than 40% of budget. (3) Put together a folio and video—including several drone shots—showcasing the house. When we saw the video, we told Deborah we didn’t know whether to move back in or raise the price. We chose the latter because Deborah promptly sold the house for more than our asking price. Deborah Fowler is a great real estate agent and one classy lady! If you have any questions, please ask Deborah for our phone number.
Deborah did an excellent job of marketing and selling our home. We were in a relocation and moving during the process of selling. The showings were very well coordinated with our necessary activities of packing and moving. The feedback on showings and advice was timely and helpful. I would absolutely recommend Deborah.
We are so happy that we had Deborah and her team handle the sale of our house. From the moment we decided to list our house until we exchanged contracts the process was seamless. Deborah and the whole DRF team are professional, attentive, quick to act and a pleasure to deal with. Deb has a load of contacts, from roofers, to plumbers, to stagers, to organizers, she arranged for them to come and beautify our house and have it ready for the market straight away, it was amazing how quickly everything came together. Deb is a savvy negotiator and has so much experience buying and selling houses, you really feel that you are in the best hands with her managing the process – it helps that she is also a pleasure to deal with and spend time with! Our house was on the market for one week before it sold, my husband and I could not be happier with how Deborah managed the whole process, we would highly recommend the DRF team to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home.
We moved from out of state and relied heavily on Deborah to preview properties and give us her expert opinion. We were probably pickier than most buyers and looked at a number of houses with Deborah being always willing to help. She was even working for us while on her trip to Mexico. We called and texted while on her vacation and she would always conclude with “I’ll be at the ready.” This was not our first home purchase and have worked with a few realtors in the past, but none have been so dedicated to their jobs. That’s what you need in this competitive market, someone who is willing to go the extra mile. We recommend Deborah without reservation and will be using her in the future.
Deborah Fowler is the best realtor I have worked with in selling a home. Actually she is the only realtor I have worked with in selling a home as this was my first home sale. From the time we first met to closing withing a week of listing she was there. Very knowledgeable of the market, she helped me get far more than I initially thought I could. Her team was great as well with vast knowledge of what a buyer would want to see in a home, they helped every step of the way getting the property ready to sell. I would recommend Deb as your realtor without hesitation and will definitely be calling her the next time I sell.
Deb Fowler is a true real estate professional! She brings in a highly qualified team to help get your house ready to go on the market. She does solid, relevant market research to determine the proper asking price and engages with you to explain her approach. Then she actually listens to you to understand your perspective and expectations. Deb sold our home in 2 days at a price well above asking. Our sincere thanks to Deb and her team.
Deb and her team were phenomenal. From the initial meeting to discuss selling our home through closing day we feelt 100% supported. All of our questions were answered right away, The home staging, listing, open house and viewings were all done with incredible professionalism and knowledge of the real estate market. I could not recommend this group more!
We can’t say enough good things about Deb! From the very first time we reached out, she was responsive, communicative and thorough. This was our first home-buying experience and we went from feeling overwhelmed and intimidated to feeling confident about the process and excited about taking such a big step. With Deb’s expertise, we were able to find a wonderful home in the perfect location for our family. She kept us informed from start to finish, and regularly had us laughing along the way. We will be recommending Deb to anybody and everybody.
Deb Fowler was exceptional. This is our second home purchase, and it was absolutely a wonderful process with Deb. Deb recommended homes that absolutely fit our wishlist, and in this competitive market, with our limited budget, she assisted my husband and I in purchasing the house of our dreams. (Please note, there were multiple offers on this home.) Deb was readily available, returning our texts/phone calls/emails within the same day. She clearly explained every single aspect of the paperwork, and was able to help us close quickly, i.e. within a few weeks of making an offer. Deb has a customer for life – my husband and I highly recommend her, and her staff without any hesitation.
Deborah has been a gem, she has done exactly what she said she will do, she sold two homes for me and sold me another!
Deb and her team are amazing and so easy to work with. They come in with a good idea of what needs to get done but willing to listen and work with any of the seller’s needs. By the time they were done staging our place we decided it looked so good, we raised the price!
I was visiting my friends in Niwot and we fortunately walked into Deborah’s Read Fowler’s Real Estate office. We told her what we looking for and Deborah found it! My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our home we bought in Niwot thanks to Deborah’s real estate expertise. We were out of state buyers and Deborah was able to completely guide us through the process of buying our dream Colorado home!!! Deborah not only is a highly skilled realtor that can get the job done, but a wonderful caring person.\r\nI highly recommend that you select Deborah as your realtor. Much thanks to Deborah and Niwot is fabulous place to call home.
Honestly, I sometimes run out of words to express my gratitude for Deb, so at that point, I have to send flowers (or chocolate!). Honestly, Deb’s commitment to her clients is unparalleled in this industry. Not only does she truly LISTEN to your needs, she will work tirelessly to achieve your goals until you’re not just satisfied, but extremely happy. She knows the intricacies of the market, does her homework on every new transaction, has an exceptional attention to detail, maintains the utmost professional attitude, injects fun and a lively spirit, always makes you laugh and smile, and makes the process so enjoyable. I’ve completed several real estate transactions with Deb through the years and would recommend her to anyone, and would never go anywhere else. Can’t say enough good things.
It has been a great experience working with Kendra. She is very responsive to our inquiries, and genuinely caring about our needs. In this hot market, she always make herself available to answer my call or response quickly to help secure the home. It was a hick up during my process and she is happy to jump in and help me resolve the challenge. I have nothing but good thing to say about her and highly recommend to have her as your Realtor.
We used Deborah to buy our first investment property. We wanted to buy in central Boulder and the property we liked had multiple offers on it. We had to submit our best and final offer within a very short time period. Deborah helped us plan out our offer strategy, keep our nerve and offer a price we were comfortable with. We got it! The whole process was very smooth and very very quick! It was great to have such an experienced realtor who knows the market well.
Excellent service and we love Deb! Even though we aren’t one of the biggest clients that Deb works with, she still treated us like superstars with a multi-million dollar listing. Her marketing is excellent, her knowledge of the market and what buyers want is excellent, her team is great, and she has access to the best people in the community to provide photography, staging, and anything else you need to get your house ready to sell or close after inspection. We highly recommend her!
Professional, Passionate and Persistent are the three P’s we think you must have when looking/searching for a Real Estate Agent to sell your home. Deborah sets the standards for the 3Ps of real estate. We met Deborah when we bought our home. When it came time to sell it she was the first, and only, person we reached out to. If we could, we would give her a hundred stars. We truly wish we could take Deborah to every place we want to buy or sell a home.
Deb not only helped us sell our house quickly (in 6 days I might add!) but she also helped us navigate the process of finding and purchasing our new beautiful home. When we first met with her we showed her our wish list we had drafted of the qualities we were looking for in a new home. Not only did she find a house that checked off half of that list, but I believe we have checked off every single bullet. She was always very professional, responsive and available throughout this process. Though it wasn’t always easy, she stayed positive and proactive! Thank you Deb for all your hard work on finding and getting us into our dream home!
We were exceptionally impressed by Deborah Fowler. Selling can be stressful and overwhelming. There is so much organization involved. Deborah came with a full team. The house was decluttered and staged, carpets cleaned, windows cleaned, garden tidied, professional photographs taken and the property ready for showing all in extraordinarily short order. All this was achieved by a cheerful hard working team that were professional and pleasant to have in my home. Deborah was efficient, responsive and always cheerful. She is an extremely talented and energetic realtor. Her marketing and negotiating skills are excellent. She is far and away the best realtor we have worked with and we would recommend her to all our friends in the area.
Deborah Fowler is absolutely great. She was my real estate agent for the sale of a Niwot property, and working with her was a wonderful experience. I’ve worked with quite a few real estate agents in Colorado and California over the years, and none equaled her hard work, great responsiveness, pricing/market knowledge, staging savvy, and the team she has to help get properties ready to list. I recommend her enthusiastically and without hesitation.
We can honestly say we have never experienced a 5 star relationship with a realtor before. We liked Deborah’s organizational skills and her enthusiasm for our home sale. It was proven, when we saw the flyer for the home; she had definitely listened to us, and created a difference maker brochure. We also like her results – two weeks and sold. In our view, she’s a real professional with a sense of humor that keeps us smiling, along with her.
Deborah was such a pleasure to work with while selling our house. Her creative, responsive, hard working and fun attitude made the whole process easy and pleasant. We highly recommend Deborah to anyone looking for a realtor!
Deb is the best real estate professional my wife or I have ever worked with, in a dozen or more transactions. Deb’s advice and guidance was consistently spot on, even though comps were scarce. Deb is supremely organized and diligent, and is an absolutely delightful person to work with. We now consider Deb and Andrew valued friends. From Boulder to Longmont, Deb’s the best. In high end residences in the larger Niwot area, she’s Queen Deborah – nobody comes close in expertise or knowledge. We highly recommend Deb and I’d be glad to provide additional information to anyone looking for a great transaction and top value from a master real estate professional.
Deborah Read Fowler has five undeniable “Star” qualities. She listens and does not forget her customers desires he genuinely knows her business better than the competitors in Niwot, She works very hard to deliver for you, whether you are the buyer or the seller. Deborah is trustworthy beyond measure! Deborah brings empathy, understanding, knowledge and an enviable work ethic to her profession.
Where do we begin?! From the beautiful flyers and marketing to the gorgeous staging to the excellent communication throughout the selling process, Deborah attends to every detail with style. We couldn’t be happier with how she guided our choices with sound research and facts, as well as listening to our wishes. She was always available for questions, and was always professional and positive. Our property sold so quickly! She made it seem effortless as she managed every challenge with confidence and expertise.
The experience of working with Deb Read Fowler makes real estate transactions enjoyable and downright fun! Of course her professionalism, attention to detail and knowledge of the market are unsurpassed, but her charming personality, friendly laugh, wit and kindness make working with her extremely pleasant. These traits are important during a process that could be stressful or emotional, but Deb always puts her clients at ease. Deb studies the market endlessly and knows the technical aspects of this business, but I think overall what sets her apart is that she truly listens to what her clients want, need and desire. I highly recommend Deb for all of your real estate needs!!
Deborah is the best! She worked with us and definitely for us. She truly became a friend through the process of selling our house :).
Deborah was a delight to work with. She was never too busy to listen or to respond to any requests I had. She has remained a friend to this day and I will always recommend her to anyone who asks me for a reliable, ethical and attentive person to deal with. There should be more realtors like her!
Top notch professionalism!! Deb Read Fowler goes above & beyond in all aspects of a home sales and we have complete faith in her expertise & knowledge of the market. Plus, she has an all-around delightful personality!
I cannot be more pleased from my experience of working with Deborah. Very prepared and organized from our initial sit down to discuss the listing of my property to the last signature on closing day. A consummate professional while at the same time empathetic to the stress and range of emotions involved with these types of transactions. Always had my best interest at heart. Would absolutely recommend her to any/ everyone looking to buy or sell.
I am a residential mortgage lender and have worked with Deborah on many transactions. Her local market knowledge and attention to detail exceeds that of many of the agents I work with. She knows the luxury market and her clients are always satisfied with her service! 5 stars for Deborah!
Deborah helped us purchase property to build our dream home on and we couldn’t have had a better experience! She’s smart and enthusiastic. She did her research, she was very responsive, and all-around on top of everything. Whatever she didn’t know, she was quick to consult experts and hunt down the information we needed to make informed decisions.She was always on time and did whatever she committed to doing–with a great attitude and a cheery smile. We highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again when it comes time to sell our current home.
