[Bought a home in 2018 for approximately $300 in North Liberty, IA] "Deb really knows about new home construction. If you want to buy a new home, she would be a great buyer's agent. She helps to provide really good advice about all the details and is patient for explaining how the process of building a home works, and this really helps when buying a new construction home. As a specific example, when we found a place that we liked, it was initially a new construction that wasn't finished yet. She advised us on writing into the contract to ensure that certain things (like sod and landscaping rocks) are completed before closing. Due to the seller's agent misreading the offer, this actually enabled us to get some free landscaping done! As a further example of her expertise, during the final walkthrough I noticed sharp points on the steps coming through the carpet. I didn't know what they were, but Deb was able to tell me immediately that they were the tack strips that are used to secure the carpet and that the carpet installers should have gone through after installation and blunted the sharp points of the tack strip so you don't feel them when walking on it. She helped to facilitate the discussions to ensure that the carpet people came back and blunted the tack strips before we moved in. And finally, she was perfectly willing to help us look for houses even though the area we were moving to was a bit far for her - about 45 minute drive. She even help us despite some difficult requests on our part, like multiple trips per day to the new home!"

[Bought and sold a home in 2017 in Taylor, Cedar Rapids, IA 52404.] "Deb Burger helped me buy and sell the same condo in 2017. Deb was referred to me by her nephew and we sat down to go over what I wanted and needed in a new home. She worked with my 80+ hour a week work schedule to show me multiple properties a night until I found the perfect home for my needs. I moved on in June 2017 and was offered and accepted a new job out of town in November. I contacted Deb right away, got my condo ready to be listed and listed it. I was under contract in less than 2 weeks. Deb did everything when it came to dealing with the association and buyer while I was living out of town and hard to get in touch with. I would recommend Deb to anyone in the Cedar Rapids area as a realtor!"

[Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $500K in Marion, IA.] "Deb helped us out in the purchase of our new home. Her extensive knowledge of the process and urgency in meeting the needs of her customers means you're never left waiting on someone. Working with Deb made our home buying experience enjoyable and low stress."

[Sold a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $225K in Hiawatha, IA.] Deb was wonderful to work with. She helped us find our first home, and then helped us sell it several years later when we were moving out of the area. Easy to contact, and treated us like her number one priority through our whole experience. She helped us sell our home quickly (within 2 days of putting it up for sale). I would highly recommend!"

[Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $200K in Marion, IA]. Deb was an outstanding help during our buying/moving process. We were not initially sold on the idea of a realtor but after our first meeting with her we knew that we wanted her on our team. She never rushed our decision making but also never wasted our time by showing us things we didn’t want. Deb even made the paperwork easy for us by accommodating to our work schedules and sending documents right to our e-mail all ready for us to e-sign (this was a huge help). She was also quick to respond and made sure to follow up with inspectors/loan officers/other realtors when they took too long to get back to us. Deb’s background in building homes was truly beneficial when it came to our search, she pointed out things that neither of us would have thought of as potential problems and even gave us recommendations on who could fix it. If you want a professional realtor who genuinely listens to what you want and will make everything from house hunting to closing as easy as possible then I would highly recommend Deb Burger!

[Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $200K in Cedar Rapids, IA.] Deb was terrific to work with! She helped us figure out what we were looking for and helped us get the house we wanted! Deb is very knowledgeable about the entire buying and selling process and answered all of our (many) questions. She also knows a lot about homes construction so she can point out things to be aware of. Overall great experience!
