I want everyone to know how happy my husband Juan and I are, and how thankful we are for knowing Debbie Marino. I met Debbie about three years ago through a mutual friend, and at the time I told my friend I was tired of throwing money away on renting and that I wanted to buy a home, so she introduced me to Debbie. I felt from the start that Debbie was very trusting, and she really took an interest and listened to what I was looking for in a home. We looked at many homes for several months and for some reason I kind of lost interest I guess because all the houses we looked at needed a lot of work, so we took a break. Debbie was very understanding and put no pressure on Juan and me. We both checked up on each other as the months went by, then two years went passed but we kept in contact. It was nice to know that I could talk to her without feeling any pressure because I knew she was out for my family’s best interests. Then the day came were I truly felt like ok we’re doing this! I called Debbie told her let’s look for a home in Los Banos. She asked if we were sure we wanted to move that far? I told her yes, we had two years to really think about it. Once we were pre-approved again, we went on our way, and wouldn’t you know on our first drive out to see homes in Los Banos, my husband and I found our home. Debbie was the one to find this home for us. She knew what we wanted, and it was perfect! The next day we submitted an offer, then the process began. I never knew all it took to buy a home, but Debbie was there every step of the way, even when I was feeling nervous when waiting for answers from the lender. She made buying our first home comfortable and a lot easier. She even helped me out on the lending side as well. She was there when everyone was jumping through hoops trying to close escrow on time, so my children could start school in time for the New Year. I can never thank Debbie enough for all she has done for my family and making our American dream come true! The Martinez family will always be thankful to you Debbie.
