Welcome to my Website ~ Select a ROSE - Debbie Rose!

I love being a Realtor!!!
Now celebrating  29 years in the real estate industry! I am very proud of the awards I have won, and the fine reputation I have earned among former clients and other real estate professionals. Buying or selling a home is a huge emotional and financial decision, and I am very sensitive to that.  Most of my business is personal referral, and for that I am extremely appreciative.
  I strive to make each client feel special (and they are!), and I pay close attention to detail. I listen to what their needs are...am always upfront, and to the point...and I always try to find quick and thorough solutions to any problems that might arise.
I follow through, and  stay in touch with all my clients on a regular basis. I am there from start to finish, whether it be a sale or a listing sold.  I still have clients from many years ago who call just to say hello, or ask for a recommendation, whether it be for a plumber, a contractor or even a restaurant!   I am always pleased to help.  I love to laugh, and I find humor can be very useful when dealing with the stress that buying or selling a home can create. You can count on me to be there though every step of the way!

I welcome your business!

Debbie was a pleasure to work with on a purchase of our home. This is our sixth property and she is the most knowledgeable, honest and diligent agent we have ever worked with. We would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a highly professional real estate agent with thorough knowledge of NJ market....Marina S.  March, 2014

..............................................................................................

My husband and I found Debbie through Trulia's website when we were about to move back to the States from overseas. Her very detailed and straight forward Q&A postings on Trulia really caught my eyes. And she happens to be an expert and long time resident of the town we are interested in. From day one we were very happy to have her as our agent and never thought of using another one. Without a doubt, Debbie's experiences, expertise and patience contributed a great deal in finding our ideal house in a highly competitive local market. We felt very grateful and lucky to have her as our Realtor....Lynn F.-2012

............................................................

We met Debbie via an ad in the West Essex Tribune, when we contemplated selling our home of 30+ years. From her immediate response to our home analysis, she proved to be a real "pro". What impressed us most, was her expertise, professionalism, industry reputation and outstanding integrity. Coupled with her vivacious personality and excellent skill sets, who could ask for more. Deb has the "passion" and you can bet she will find you a home!!!...Edie - 2013

.............................................................

Debbie helped me buy, and later sell a home. Her candid advice was priceless in helping me navigate what can be a confusing and sometimes stressful process. She is a true advocate for her clients and doesn't just "manage the paperwork". Debbie was a partner in all aspects of selection, negotiation and closing. I would recommend her without reservation... Dan, 2012

................................................................

My wife and I have known Debbie for years so there was no question we would use her to help us find our first home. We already knew how friendly and wonderful she is prior to working with her, and she's just as great on a professional level. She's extremely proactive, did lots of research for us based on our buying parameters, helped us from start to finish during the buying process and answered all our questions and helped us understand how things work as first time buyers. Like I said, we knew she was a delightful and lovely person "off the job," and she's just as delightful and helpful "on the job!" We absolutely recommend her!...Jay 2013

Debbie, Thanks so much for all your time & help in the purchase of our very first home! It was a pleasure working with you, you made everything flow smoothly...Thank you again...with much appreciation"........SA...2009

" Debbie, thank you so much  for all you did during the sale of my Dad's home. Handling his estate was difficult enough, but having to do it from a distance made it even more difficult. I don't know what I would have done without you. You were there every step of the way, and went out of your way to make it all happen. Not only did you list the home, but you sold it as well..in 2 days! Thanks again and best wishes"......S. 2011

.....................................................................

Your help with our 1st home purchase was spectacular - looking back, it was a seamless transaction that wouldn't have been without you!! We've heard horror stories about other people's closings, and are amazed ours went so smoothly - thanks to you! ".........S.&J.2010

..........................................................................

"We just want to thank you for all your hard work in helping us sell our home AND buy our dream home! You are such a nice person, with an enormous heart. We're so glad we've gotten to know you! As soon as we personalize our house, we'll call you for a visit! Thank you again for all you've done."...... D.&S.

..........................................................................

"Debbie, you're the best! We're so lucky to have met you. Thank you for making us feel so special and welcomed. And, many, many thank you's for having the strength, stamina & sense of humor in our journey of finding a house that was just perfect for us ! We found our "home sweet home" and a new and wonderful friend  in the process --- we adore you!"........K.&A.2009

Personal Background - Who I Am!

* Lifelong resident of Essex  County, having lived in W. Orange, Short Hills, Livingston and Roseland

* I started my "working" career, after college in the mid 70's, as a teacher in the East Orange school system - taught 4th grade reading and math . I then became a stay-at-home-mom. In 1985, with my son in school full time, I decided it was time to return to work. The question was - just WHAT work to do. I always loved looking at model homes, and reading up on real estate. So............ I decided to take a real estate course...next thing I know, I passed my state exam, and voila... I'm a brand new Realtor! At the time the company was called Degnan Boyle.

I have been  with the same company for the past 29 years, and have been part of the expansion and evolution  to what is now Berkshire Hathaway Home Services NJ Properties.
