We were looking for a home in Irvine, CA while still living overseas in Japan. Communication was always excellent and Debbie was always very responsive. She has extensive knowledge of Irvine, including both older neighborhoods and new developments. She was very helpful is showing us and recommending to us homes in our prices range throughout Irvine. - ryanwnelson

Debbie is professionally collected under the pressures of real estate transactions. She possesses a can-do attitude and has many reliable resources to help the process along. Debbie responds timely and utilizes modern tools for tracking and relaying status of properties. Her experience is particularly evident in manner in which she maintains momentum. - zuser20140708123220727

Debbie made the selling of my condominium an almost enjoyable experience. Her expertise made the process smooth and thoroughly professional. Debbie always responded to my calls quickly, and kept in touch while the unit was on the market, sharing the ongoing interest tallied on the Zillow site, as well as the showings by other realtors. Negotiations with the buyer went quickly and flawlessly. This is the second time that Debbie has successfully negotiated a real estate sale for my family and I recommend her services highly. - grslater7

Debbie was a real pleasure to work while she sold my home in a short period of time. Her knowledge of the market and her negotiating skills are superior. She was able to get the best deal possible for me and worked diligently to get the price I hoped I would receive. I would happily recommend Debbie to family, friends and neighbors. First Team is lucky to have Debbie on their team. - dianedon

Look up the word "awesome" in the dictionary and you will find Debbie Sagorin listed!!! From the first meeting to the final close in the roller coaster ride that defined the sale of my house, Debbie was the positive and calming factor that kept me grounded and focused on my dream. Her marketing of my property was incredible-in escrow after only 11 days. When there was a hiccup with the first buyer, she was able to bring in a second buyer within 7 hours and I was back in escrow and closing within my critical timeframe. Debbie was very proactive during the process and was able to anticipate and resolve any issues to keep things running smoothly. She was consistently available for any questions or concerns I had-don't know when she sleeps. I am so grateful that I chose Debbie and her team and would encourage anyone that wants to work with a professional, successful, and caring realtor to choose Debbie Sagorin. - mjbrownfield

I would recommend Deb to other clients, especially those who have a tight timeline to sell their home. She and her team are very proactive in marketing properties online and offline, both locally and abroad. She was highly responsive throughout process and instilled alot of confidence in us during what could normally be a stressful time. Her business savvy and sense of humor really helped along the way. Deb gets the job done! - carla asta

Debbie is an excellent realtor. She is knowledgeable and helpful in our buying process. We sat down with her to review criteria for our preferred home. During the search process, she gave us great options and followed up to make sure they were still what we were looking for. When we finally narrowed down the homes we were considering, she gave us competitive analysis for each property that was crucial to our decision of which home to purchase. - eon 2002

We had a wonderful experience using Debbie Sagorin to sell our home. She took such great care of all our needs, from listing the house, getting the house ready to sell and also by just being there to help us through all of the day to day things that come up when selling a home. I would highly recommend using Debbie as your agent! - user9167107

When I first meet with Debbie I was impressed with all the research and reports she had prepared that assisted me in the decision to sell my property and at what asking price. Within a couple of days she had professional pictures taken, listed it on the MLS and produced a beautiful glossy brochure of the property. She was able to find a buyer much quicker than I anticipated and gave me great advice when it came to a counter offer. During the escrow process she assisted by personally giving access to the appraiser, inspectors and repairmen. She made the process seamless, quick and very pleasant. - hayescrew1

I highly recommend Debbie as she helped us locate our dream house, negotiate a great price and then proactively communicated with us every step of the way to close the deal in 30 days. Debbie's knowledge about the market we were shopping in, her ready availability and reassuring sense of humor are just some of the qualities that make her such a great agent. - zuser20140611220037784

I met Debbie when a realtor who had been recommended was not available. Debbie was FABULOUS! I was so lucky! Debbie helped me through every phase of selling my house. She was ALWAYS available for any questions. She kept me grounded through everything. On the day of OPEN HOUSE, a Saturday, she took care everything. The following Tuesday we met to discuss the MULTIPLE OFFERS. She had completely checked every offer and knew which offers were acceptable. One was accepted and we were in escrow. Fifteen days later my house had a new owner. Debbie did everything to make me comfortable during the procession, was at all times professional, and someone I highly recommend. - zuser20140611172847086 

Debbie is the consummate professional. With her you know what you're getting - professionalism, expertise and superb negotiation skills. She removes as much of the stress of real estate transactions as is humanly possible. She is the epitome of the "trusted advisor" and deserves every positive accolade she receives. You simply won't get any better. - zuser20140526150127097 

Debbie is AMAZING! She answered my many questions via email all hours of the day and night (I don't think she sleeps!), and went above and beyond what I would expect from a realtor. Use Debbie - you definitely won't regret it! - zuser20140524143212998

Debbie Sagorin was outstanding! Her communication with me was excellent. The materials she put together for the pictures of my home and the advertising of my home was outstanding. I will recommend Debbie to anyone expressing interest in buying or selling their home, - lorrainemr

Debbie Sagorin is an excellent realtor! I needed to rent a condo in Woodbridge (Irvine) and Debbie was so helpful. She is so professional and really understands what it takes to be the best! She goes above and beyond. Since I don't live in Irvine, I really needed her assistance with getting the condo ready for the new tenants. She arranged everything from the house cleaning to finding me a handyman to fix minor problems. She even found a gardener for me! When I asked for her help, she always answered enthusiastically and made everything seem effortless. I am a professional Interior Designer and I know many real estate agents. I could tell instantly that Debbie was the realtor for me. She is a delightful person who really cares. I would highly recommend her. - szdsign

I truly enjoyed working with Debbie. She is highly professional yet a joy to work with. I felt she had my best interest at heart the entire marketing, sale, and escrow process. Her communication skills are excellent, she uses extensive and effective marketing tools and advertising. When offers came in she was very good at negotiating for the best possible price and terms. I felt confident in Debbie and have no regrets in trusting her with the sale of my home. Highly recommended! - JCJC

I have worked with many realtors over the years, and without exception Debbie is the best. She understands the market area and she is very realistic about her recommendations. She marketed my home very aggressively and it sold much quicker than I had anticipated. After the sale she stayed engaged in every element of the process until it was concluded. If I ever have to sell another property, I would not bother to interview any other realtors. - user7730707

Out of a half dozen message I left for realtors to list and lease my rental, only two responded. I didn't know that sales were so good. Debbie responded right away and the other never called me back after we traded voicemail only once. Debbie and I connected, I was impressed, and she went to work immediately. We found a tenant in about a week! I would assume she works just as hard selling and showing homes. I will use her again! - nobledon1

We have had the pleasure of working with Debbie twice. The first time was for a rental. While I know Debbie doesn’t make much money on rentals, she treated us like we were a buyer. Showed us lots of good houses and never rushed us. She handled all the negotiation and details and was very professional. The second time we worked with Debbie, we purchased a home in Woodbridge. Again, she was very professional and available when we needed her. She insisted on handling all the details and made us feel like we were her only client; which we know wasn’t the case because the housing market was booming at that time. We wouldn’t hesitate for a second to use Debbie again or to recommend her to our closest friends. - g roeder

Debbie was extremely instrumental in our being able to sell our condo and obtain profit we wished. When it came time to close the buyer put up a road block but Debbie was quick to offer suggestions that kept sell on stream. Debbie contiued to be a step ahead of all activites regarding preparation and sell of our property. She far excelled previous realator we used to buy Wintermist property and that lady was very good. - user0947179

Debbie is, quite simply, the best realtor we know out there. In the last three years, my husband and I have gone through a house purchase, a house sale, and two property leases. From start to finish Debbie has had the process firmly under her control. Not only is she friendly and personable, but she details every step of the paperwork and sets accurate expectations. Debbie says it like it is - there's no beating about the bush. Even though she is extremely busy, she doesn't skip a beat, and makes you feel like you are her only client. Her negotiations kills are fantastic! Our current lease explicitly said "no dogs allowed", but within hours Debbie had negotiated our pup into the house. Debs goes well above and beyond what would be expected from a realtor, and I have no problem recommending her to anyone! - julietjones

What an amazing experience from start to finish. I was very nervous about listing my house. Debbie made me comfortable as soon as she entered my house. She was prepared with individual stats for my property, price ranges, current trends, etc. A very thorough sparkling presentation. She was well organized (which I can appreciate). She explained everything beautifully. -She had the perfect amount of professionalism mixed with being down to earth. She was always available when I had a question or concern. I can't say enough good things about Debbie. It was one if the best choices I could have made. Thanks, Debbie and Team - user1486798

I don't usually write reviews, but our home buying experience with Debbie Sagorin was so positive I want to share it. We moved to Irvine after living out of state for 10 years. Debbie was patient and informative as we got to know the area again. She really took the time to get to know us, and what we were looking for. Not only is she extremely personable (she almost immediately feels like a family friend), she is trustworthy and responsive as well. This, combined with her extensive knowledge of the area and market, made our home buying experience feel effortless. Thank you Debbie!! - user24763624

Debbie was an outstanding Realtor to work with. She explains everything to you from the Beginning of the Process to the end, not too mention she stays in close contact with you . She's never more than a phone call away. Her negotiation skills were terrific we sold our Home in 3 days. I always felt comfortable and that she had our best interest in mind. Whether you are buying or selling a home, Debbie really does a good job on knowing everything going on in the area and with these long Legal Documents you have to sign Debbie made it very easy for us to understand what we were signing and what was to come next. I would refer her to a friend or use her again due to her terrific services. - user51071812

As a first time homebuyer, I couldn't have been happier working with Debbie. Even in a crazy market and competing with cash offers, she stayed calm and confident. Debbie is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and has a great sense of humor and overall good nature. She helped me find the perfect place for my current situation, and I would recommend her to anyone. - user416338802

Debbie is a great realtor who always has her clients interests in mind. She was able to get us an accepted offer in this CRAZY market of cash offers and high offer prices. Not sure too many other realtors could have made that happen. If you need something done, Debbie will burn the midnight oil for you. She's the best. Will do business again. Thanks, Debbie! - user9975090

We found out that my wife was pregnant and we would need a bigger home just a few days before the letter arrived in the mail. The letter was from Debbie Sagorin stating that she had a buyer looking for a home in our neighborhood, because their deal fell through, and if we were possibly thinking about selling to give her a call. As I read this letter on a Sunday night, I thought it was just a scam but decided to email Debbie just to see what would happen. We talked with Debbie on a Monday, met with her Thursday, met the buyers Friday, we agreed on a selling price on Saturday and 30 days later the house was officially sold! No listing, no staging, no leaving so multiple people could look at the house, no open house! This process couldn’t have been easier (except for the packing part!). Debbie was very honest with our options and there was very open communication between Debbie and my family. Debbie walked us through every step and was very clear and accurate with all the paperwork involved. In the end, the letter from Debbie was a gift and a wonderful opportunity for our family. We highly recommend using Debbie Sagorin for your home buying/selling needs! - jortiz1012

We are so glad that we found Debbie! We were first time home buyers and were very hesitant about the home buying process having heard so many stories about all cash buyers and the low the house inventory. We, in fact, went through the disappointment of losing our "dream" house in a multiple bid situation, even though our offer much higher than the list price. Debbie understood our frustration and offered an out-of-box solution. We said okay not being very hopeful but she found us a house that wasn't even listed within two weeks! After viewing the property, Debbie submitted an offer for us, and 30 days later the house was ours! The whole process was stress-free and easy! and we found our dream home. Debbie is a miracle worker!! - user0738540

After working successfully with Debbie in 2010 for the first time, it was an easy choice to call her again when we decided to move again. Haven given her near impossible assignments, both times she came through, faster then expected and with great care. Her local knowledge about the Woodbridge area has been very helpful to us and we will be sure to use her when this time we will opt to buy our new house in Woodbridge! the Patist Family - user8851004

Debbie did a great job helping us to find our dream home and close the sale in a very difficult and competitive market. Often the properties we looked at would have multiple offers before we even saw them, so after a few weeks Debbie gave us very helpful advice on how to be more aggressive in our search and make sure we get offers in for the properties we liked. We were able to locate our house after something like 2-3 months of searching, and are very happy with our choice. Debbie also did a great job of negotiating with the seller and getting our offer accepted despite our offer being one of many and not the highest. She was also super helpful in coaching us through the paperwork process to close the sale. - chriscday

Debbie is an outstanding agent! She patiently worked with us to find the perfect home for our family and then gave us excellent advice regarding an appropriate offer and counter offer. She knew precisely how to represent our issues and concerns to the sellers and had an intuitive sense of what would sway them. Debbie tirelessly defended our best interests. We recommend her without reservation! - rgurien

Debbie is an absolute dream come true! She first helped us with renting our home and found qualified, wonderful tenants and was as invested as if she were selling the home. She checked in on us over the year and made sure we were happy and that everything was working out well. When we decided to sell the house, she took such genuine care of us that it was truly a wonderful experience! Not something that I say lightly! She is extremely personable, full of energy and makes you feel as if you are the only people in the world. The only homes I ever buy or sell will be with Debbie! - user0509265

One never really knows what one is going to encounter with personality, knowledge, friendliness, etc, when one makes a "blind" phone call, looking for realtor help. Everyone deserves the experience I've had with Debbie. I believe, much so, that a responsive professional is also a caring one. Debbie is quite responsive, and she hears without being told! Debbie's infectious knowledge of Irvine was very refreshing, particularly with my busy schedule, as this afforded me some cover and peace of mind we were going to find something that suits my needs. Most of all, Debbie is honest and will tell you what "is", not what you want to hear. - kome

I was having a highly unsatisfactory experience with an agent before terminating him and hiring Debbie to help me find a place to live. In contrast to the prior agent, she really listened to what I wanted in a home. Debbie was always professional, prompt in communicating, and a true champ when a situation arose that she had not dealt with before. I would highly recommend her without reservation. - user456458

Debbie was incredibly helpful when my husband and I moved to Irvine looking for a property to rent. We'd moved from England with two young children and Debbie immediately made me feel reassured. Even before we left the UK, Debbie's regular email updates with houses that were available were very impressive, and showed her attention to detail and professionalism. Once we arrived, her helpfulness and kindness were amazing. We were so grateful! She responded to any questions or requests very quickly and she became more like a friend than an agent! We quickly found a house that we are now very happy in. It didn't take long to find thanks to Debbie. Thank you! - user048653

Awesome all rounder real estate agent! Can't ask for a better one than Debbie. Thanks for all your help. Couldn't have managed our home hunting process so smoothly without her help :D - user2851319

Debbie took initiative to assist me as I was looking for a place to rent in Irvine. I had not had to change my residence in many years and was naive to the intricacies of finding a good place. Debbie was kind, helpful, proactive and "went to bat" for me when there was fierce competition from other potential parties for the home I was able to get. I will be approaching her for any future real estate activities without a doubt!!!! - joanna_gerry

We live in Arizona and made an appointment with Debbie to discuss the sale of my late stepfather's home before we arrived in Irvine to tidy up his affairs. Debbie arrived with a complete summary and cost analysis of homes in the area, and an IMPRESSIVE LIST of marketing resources. She knew the neighborhood well, often selling there, and we agreed with her recommendation on the listing price. The house sold in three days at list price. After we accepted the offer, Debbie acted as our representative to get the house ready for closing; selling and/or donating the contents, dealing with Inspectors and the HOA, and delivering it professionally cleaned to the buyers. She REGULARLY CALLED US about issues that came up, getting our permission before taking action. There was a clean closing after less than 30 days in escrow. As out-of-state sellers, we cannot overstate how much Debbie Sagorin HELPED US in a situation we thought would take months, but was completed in less than one. We are VERY PLEASED with the results of the sale. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND DEBBIE SAGORIN. -  Lorin and Marilyn L Chandler, AZ 

Debbie was always professional and yet very personal and personable in all of our dealings. She responded immediately to phone calls and questions and was very aggressive in getting our house seen. When the house was in escrow, she kept track of the multitude of deadlines and necessary paperwork and sent constant reminders to keep us on track. It's an onerous process, but she made it much more manageable. She was willing to meet us at our home, at our convenience, for all the meetings and paper signings which made it much more pleasant due to our busy work schedule. Selling and buying a home is incredibly stressful and overwhelming. Debbie played an integral part in streamlining the whole ordeal and I would highly recommend her. - user342099

Helped sell and list our house very quickly. Debbie was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful when we sold our house. I would use her services in a heartbeat. - shanks51

Debbie is a thorough professional. I needed a Broker Price Opinion on my property. She responded immediately and without trying to solicit me to sell my home (which some other agents did), she sent me a BPO within a couple of days. The report was very thorough and useful and solved its purpose. Would recommend her any day and would use only her for future buying or selling. - dpujara

My husband and I had very particular needs due to our two dogs (one of which is very large). Debbie was quickly able to find rentals that fit our criteria and price range. I would recommend Debbie to anyone with pets who needs a rental! - user317750

Debbie understands your needs I work 65- 70 hours a week time is valuable she got me exactly what I was looking for and with very litle time wasted on my part - ThaddeusForet

Debbie was looking for a home for us to buy, with a lease being the fallback if we couldn't find the right home to purchase. We were very picky about what we wanted on the purchase side. She showed us many homes, but because we wanted to live in a defined area due to the schools there (Woodbridge), the selection was limited. We ended up leasing a home. Debbie was cheery, professional and responsive throughout the entire process. We ended up leasing a home and Debbie never indicated any dissatisfaction with that decision, even though I know she didn't make nearly as much money as she would have if we had purchased. Her knowledge of the local market is extensive. We will use her again, without hesitation, if we need a local agent. - FroLaw


My husband and I LOVE Debbie! We have found 2 rental homes through her and when we're ready to buy we will most definitely utilize her services again. She's honest, patient, knowledgeable, informative, assertive, and funny. We so appreciate her and would recommend her to all of our friends and family! - MS$ili

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Debbie Sagorin to buy or sell a home. I hope I have the pleasure of working with her again in the future. - MandyW.

Mrs. Debbie Sagorin was a true professional who deeply cares about her clients needs and request. With me being in another state and I didn't have the opportunity to meet her face to face, but she understand the requests I had as a single women and the area I would like to be at and she accomplished that goal without even knowing the type of person I am. I am deeply grateful for what she has done for me. The move for me was stress less and it worked out just the way I planned. But most importantly, after I moved in the rental Mrs. Sagorin continues to check up on me to make sure all is well. I couldn't ask for a better realtor. - Tazman14

AMAZING! Debbie sold our home in 7 days! She was very easy to work with and we were very happy with the sale of our home. Also, her advertising was stunning! Thank you Debbie. We can't wait to use you again...and share you with our friends! - mquewood

Debbie is professional and understands the Irvine rental and sales market. She is personable and focuses on the goal. If you are looking for an Irvine real estate agent....you found her. - StewartASmith

With a short time frame to work and working cross country, Debbie was able to help me narrow my search to homes that fit my requirements. She also made them easily reviewable online, with the ability to post my comments and approve/remove them. Finally, she was able to knock down the asking price, without me requesting even thinking to ask. I highly recommend Debbie if you are in the market for a new rental, and imagine her skills and expertise are as capable for purchases. - canufltht

When my mother died I needed to sell her condo, which was in a retirement community. The market was way down and places were selling for pennies on the dollar. Debbie worked extremely hard to market the condo and find potential buyers. We were ultimately able to sell it for much more than I thought we would get. She would return all my calls and was very positive through the whole process. I recommend her highly!!!! - p429d4l

Working with Debbie is an excellent experience. Knowledgeable, honest and friendly Debbie never left you waiting and was very proactive. It was a lot of fun and Debbie knows her market place I would recommend her highly - leahjbeal

Debbie has helped us out on several occasions. She is a wonderful agent and always puts us first. We gave her our needs and she was able to help us find a home that we love. We have become so close to Debbie that her kids even babysit for us! She is awesome and I would recommend her to anyone in need of buying/selling/renting a home in the Woodbridge area. - amburnette

Debbie contacted me immediately from my request on Zillow, and was able to show me the property at my availability. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area and helping me in find the right property for my family. Thank you, Debbie; I look forward with working with you on our search! - Tracy Matthews

Debbie Sagorin is one of the most professional & knowledgeable Realtor in the Irvine/Orange County Area. Our property was advertised effectively & actively presented in brochures and publications. The property sold in a very short period at our Listing Price. Throughout the listing period we received regular updates on showings, feedback from prospective buyers and their agents. We always had confidence that Debbie was always acting as our advocate throughout the completion of the transaction. If you are looking for an agent that is eager to sell your house, we would highly recommend Debbie Sagorin from First Team Real Estate as your agent....we would definitely use her again!!! - aspen1234

Debbie's rental listing service was very helpful in identifying the homes available for rent based on our criteria. We contacted her with the home we were interested in and she responded immediately and we were able to see the home the next day without any hassle. Debbie helped us through the application process and within two days the home was ours. She promptly answered any questions we had afterwards and contacted the landlord when she wasn't sure. We are very happy with the service Debbie provided and we look forward to continuing our relationship with her. - Brian2211

Debbie was very involved and aided my decision making process with her knowledge and understanding of the Woodbridge area. She is a warm and kind person who is also patient. She made my quick move very manageable. - srasmuss1

Debbie was great through the whole process of selling our home. She had the answers to our questions before we could even ask them. She kept us informed every step of the way. - zuser20140422120434647
