Deborah Fogarty

REALTOR

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise:

Market Knowledge and Pricing are critical to success.  Realistic pricing frequently leads to multiple offers and a timely sale.  As a very active agent I have a very good sense of the competition in the marketplace ... not only the current competition, but more importantly, what is about to come on the market.  My clients on both sides of transactions benefit form my "inside track" information.  My fingers are always on the pulse of what is out there and who is looking.  This tells me how many buyers are ready, willing and able to make a purchase for a certain price point at a certain time.

Product Knowledge.  Over the years I have been very fortunate to work with many builders.  I have learned  great deal along the way and I am able to leverage that knowledge when selling a home or helping a buyer purchase a home. I know quality from flash, and can explain the nuances of a hydro air vs. hot forced air system!  All systems are  NOT created equal.  I can distinguish high-end lighting, cabinetry, tile, millwork and finishes vs. builder grade.  I know quality craftmanship.  

Pretty homes sell faster.  Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do.  I  hire a professional photographer, a stager and any other professional that is needed to make your property show its absolute best.  I can recommend making repairs or minor improvements such as painting the walls.  And I can refer you to Coldwell Banker's RealVitalize program, which helps sellers with home improvements and repairs with no payment until closing.

Personal Service.  After the house goes on the market, the only person who will be in and out of your home is me!  

  • I accompany all private showings, host any Broker Open or Public Open Houses.
  • I answer my phone, texts or email ... promptly ... yours or any potential buyers or buyers' agents.
  • I meet with the bank appraiser to ensure that the loan goes through.
  • Meeting prospective buyers and buyers' agents give me the opportunity to know with whom I am dealing.  I can tell who is the decision maker, if they are emotionally attached to the house, just going through the motions, appeasing a spouse, or likely to back out.
  • I personally accompany my buyer clients to homes of interest.

Experience.

  • In 2004 while looking for a home for myself I realized how much I loved beautiful  homes and that I would like matching people to homes.      So ...  in 2004 I became licensed as a REALTOR® and have been a Top Agent in Lexington for over 12 years.

 

  • I have worked with many builders throughout my career.  Today, I choose to represent only two:  Dick Perry of Shaker Glen Construction and Ben Finnegan of Finnegan Development.  Why?  They share my views.  We are all people who value long-term relationships with clients.  I am honored to represent both.

 

  • Resales ... I admit it ... I love a pretty house!  I am genuinely more excited if a home is well decorated and shows well.  Two years ago, a seller told me after I sold her home that she chose to list her home with me because she could tell how much I loved the house.  I sold her home, which was a bit "on the high side" in less than a week.

 

  • Prior to real estate I was  owner of a successful small business (Premiums Direct).  Clients included Fidelity Investments, Ocean Spray, Nabisco and many other financial, high tech and food companies.

 

Success. 

Each year I sell many homes including off market transactions, most in the $1M to $2M+ range.

2016/2017 - Average Sale Price $1,765,000

2018         - Average Sales Price $1,753,000

2019         - Average Sales Price $2,032,125  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Since the very first moment we met Deborah she was able to read and interpret what we were looking for in our new house. She knows the market, and she knew exactly which was the house for us, and she was right! We are loving our new home!!! Through the whole process she was not only extremely professional but also very warm and enjoyable. Buying a house is not an easy decision and having Deborah’s guidance and experience with us made a huge difference! We highly recommend working with Deborah!  -"

  -Isabelle M, Client

"My mom, a real estate agent in my home state of CA where we were moving from (to MA), found Deborah on Zillow and chose her out of everyone because of her picture. Her picture drew my mom in to dig deeper and because her background matched what the picture conveyed as a first impression, she reached out to her and the rest was history. Deborah knows the in's and out's of the buying process here in the Boston suburbs. Her insights prevented us from buying the wrong house and her reputation helped us buy the right one. She is very well-connected and is extremely responsive. She tells you like it is and has your best interest at heart. We were very lucky to have her, especially in a new state and with us being unfamiliar with the processes here, she guided us along the way. We are currently getting settled into our new home and have her to thank." "

"We were connected with Deborah because of her expertise and knowledge of the Lexington-area housing marketplace, along with her access to pre-market/off-market inventory. Our experience with her was absolutely fantastic. She was extremely knowledgeable about the market in Lexington and around, and became a true partner in our new house venture. Her responsiveness was close to immediate throughout our search. She understood exactly what we wanted, and advised us where our time would be best spent at open houses or talking to home builders. Deborah got us the house of our dreams, literally, but she also went beyond that to advise us on every step of the process until and after we moved in. There is no better option than Deborah to help you with buying a home - we recommend her highly! "

  -L Roussel, Client

"We were introduced to Deborah through our school parents network. We were working with another agent before and started working with Deborah after a failed bid process with that agent. What we found with Deborah are: - she has opinions about quality of builders, quality of construction, neighborhoods and values - she responds immediately almost always - she is discerning - she is well implanted into the local market, the networks and the intelligence - she is respectful of buyer needs We enjoyed our buying process with Deborah and recommend her. Be prepared to hear things you may not always want to hear, but that should tell you that you are probably on the way to your new home soon!!!  "
