After 20 years settled in my home, next to everything I needed, Debbie-Lee found me something better - the next dream home! One viewing and my mind was made up, just had to try to make it happen. Never giving up, despite difficulties and delays with bank finance, Debbie-Lee negotiated conditions that kept the deal alive and gave me time to get the bank on-side and secure the purchase!Barry Roberts - Purchaser, Stonefields
Needing a quick sale to secure my next dream home, I listed with Debbie-Lee, who had recently sold another of my properties. Despite the short time-frame, Debbie-Lee’s campaign netted a conditional offer and a back-up offer. Photos looked great and managed to hide the mess from the departing tenants. I am grateful for the help and insight Debbie-Lee brought to the table in negotiating with potential purchasers.Barry Roberts - Vendor, Tamworth Close, Manurewa
Starting with a detailed timeline, the whole process of my first ever property sale went according to the plan, discussed with Debbie-Lee before listing. Debbie-Lee’s effort, experience, and great campaign netted a great sale, with tenants in place, despite the end-of-year holidays falling right in the middle of it all. Very happy and would definitely list again with Debbie-Lee.Barry Roberts - Vendor, Buller Cres, Manurewa
5 Stars! Amazing Salesperson
I recently appointed Debbie-Lee to sell a property for me. On meeting her, I found her very friendly and easy to get on with. As our promotion went on I could see she was very hardworking and she kept me informed on what was going on, almost on a daily basis. I was thrilled with the result she got for me in what was a difficult market. I would highly recommend her to anyone who was thinking of selling their property.Dean & Suzanne Cowling - Vendor, 10 Apr 2022
We chose to list with Debbie-Lee Wallace who we have known for many years, as we liked her lovely manner and commitment to real estate over many years. We were delighted with her enthusiasm and that she listened to and worked with our requirements. We were 100% happy with our photos, videos and Debbie-Lee's care and follow-up. Debbie-Lee is very careful and covers each step of the process thoroughly. We are very pleased we chose to list our house with Debbie-Lee and Barfoot & Thompson.Jennie & Wayne Goldsack - Sturges Avenue, Otahuhu
We would like to say what a pleasure the whole process of selling our property was, from beginning to end, by having Debbie-Lee as our our real estate salesperson 😊
She is such a genuine and friendly person and made the entire process very relaxed and enjoyable, but was still always professional. She would always have a smile and a reassuring word for us in what can sometimes be a stressful time.
The outcome was nothing short of awesome 🎉
So we thank you so very much Debbie-Lee, and all your great team at Barfoot & Thompson Stonefields ✨
We would highly recommend Debbie-Lee if you are ever thinking of selling or buying a property.
Big thumbs up and again THANK YOU Debbie - Lee 👍👍👍👍
Cheers 🤗Yerko & Claudia
I started looking for a place around four months ago, and a friend suggest the house that I met Debbie-Lee. At the open day, she was great, really warm and open, helpful and kind with her time and answering questions. I think called and texted her at least 30 times!
Sadly, I lost out on that house but Debbie-Lee followed up and said that she had a few places that I might like and did I want to have a look. She worked with me to find and get me across the line and I am happy to say that am about to move into my new home.
She has gone over-and-above to support, help and make sure I got the home of my dreams.
Thank you Debbie-Lee you’re a star.Andy Q - Happy New Homeowner
Recently I listed my house with Debbie-Lee Wallace from Barfoot & Thompson. Debbie-Lee represented me in a very friendly and professional manner always respecting me and my home. Her marketing team were also highly professional and very respectful.
She always kept me updated on all visits and feedback and worked tirelessly on my behalf on the phone emails etc. The outcome was, my property was sold before the original auction date and I can now move on to new adventures.
I would highly recommend Debbie-Lee for her skill and knowledge in the housing market and have indeed forwarded her details on to several people.
Thank you again for a wonderful and exciting outcome.
With my fondest regardsJulie
I found Debbie-Lee Wallace to be an enthusiastic, industrious real estate professional who from years of experience is highly informed of the rules and nuances of the business. Debbie-Lee has a warm, caring, positive approach to her clients and communicates well with all people. Debbie-Lee is a problem solver and rises to the challenge of difficult situations. My property, which she sold in June 2018, was one of five in a cross lease location which added complexity to the marketing. Debbie-Lee was particularly supportive of my position. Likewise, she managed a stalemate at the auction in a professional manner to achieve an acceptable settlement figure.
Thank you Debbie-Lee
Hi Debbie Lee, my utmost thanks go to you for following through on what was always going to be a difficult sell. Your perseverance and charm has paid off for me, and I now have the means to follow my dreams. I wish you all the best in your future endeavours, may they turn out as well as mine.
"Debbie-Lee did the impossible with my house. She changed it from just a decent house to an amazing house for someone to picture a life there. She not only helped us with the whole process in making it really easy for us but she also gave us amazing tips on how to get our house 'open home' ready. She was ALWAYS available to contact and she helped get us the best deal possible for our house. I cannot recommend her enough!!"Rebecca Moen
We listed with Barfoot & Thompson, as we had bought the property off them originally, but after 3 months of no action, based on the fact that it was a plaster property, we went to a general listing. Within a week of that happening, Debbie-Lee bought a couple through on a Sunday afternoon and we had an offer about 2 hours later and a signed agreement before the day was done. It was a conditional agreement, but Debbie-Lee managed to sell the buyers property also. She even showed us around some potential properties for us to buy. We would have no hesitation in recommending Debbie-Lee as a fantastic agent to deal with.Cliff & Tina
Debbie-lee got us our dream home and sold our home. I have never seen anyone work so hard to get the clients the results they want. Simple if you want to buy or sell, hire this person. Thanks so much Debbie-lee from all of our familySteve and Tania Doran
Debbie-Lee carried out the marketing and sale of my Mother's home in a very professional and efficient manner. Her knowledge of the local market is amazing.Winifride Brown - Ellerslie
On behalf of my family we would like to thank you Debbie Lee for all your hard work and effort in marketing and subsequent sale of our mum/grandmothers home. Thank you also, for your kind, caring and compassionate nature, as this was a difficult and emotional time for us.Philippa Tweedy
"Debbie-Lee Wallace is a truly professional, approachable and enthusiastic real estate agent. My first experience with Debbie-Lee was searching for a home in 2009. Although at the end I did not purchase a home from her, I was totally impressed with her professionalism. Hence this year when I had to sell my home there was no questions in my mind that I would ask Debbie-Lee for help. Debbie-Lee had always been pro-active with her communication and my home sold within weeks at a price above my reserved price. Very impressed and will be more than happy to recommend to anyone. Thanks Debbie-Lee!Michael Chan

"Debbie-Lee Richards Wallace and Jade Wallace looked after the sale at auction of our property in Ellerslie. From formulating the marketing plan, through to auction night, both Sales Agents were Thoroughly professional.

"Debbie is very enthusiastic in her role and does go above and beyond to secure a suitable sale. Jade and Debbie work very well together and definately complement each other. We achieved a good price for our property and are happy with the way the whole process worked."Evan & Dee Hockings
"Debbie-Lee has a warm personality, and together with her knowledge and professional approach to property sales I would not hesitate to use Debbie-Lee again. I trusted every recommendation that Debbie-Lee made in relation to the marketing and eventual sale of the property and really appreciated the support she gave me during the daunting auction process."Denise Herbert
"I first met Debbie-Lee nearly 20 years ago when she was marketing a neighbour's property. I found her to be energetic, vivacious and truthful. During the following years, she would regularly be in contact and I would sometimes touch base with her to get honest opinions on what would add value to my own home. When it came time to sell, it was a no-brainer for me to ask Debbie-Lee to market my home. She has a great eye for detail to make sure your house is presented well and doesn't fill you up with false expectations. She was a pleasure to work with."Sue Whitehead
