Debs Wallace is a superstar real estate agent. Recommended as the best to us, from the moment we met her and her right hand lady Karen, we knew the sale process of our biggest asset was in the best hands. She’s professional, friendly, funny and caring and just does what she does with true excellence…going the extra mile for her clients. Our home sold in a record few days and she handled the negotiation process the way only someone with a real gift in house sales could do. Grateful to you Debs and we have found a lovely friend in the process.
Steph and Mike Armstrong
Debs Wallace has now successfully sold two properties for us. One word sums up one of Debs many strengths. Communication. From Wo to Go Debs has always been available. Very rapid response to phone, email or text. Day or night. Debs is an exceptional negotiator and very knowledgeable in all areas of the process. She is passionate about and committed to her work. Her enthusiasm is infectious. We would thoroughly recommend Debs to sell your property.
Ian and Philippa Staples
Debs Wallace recently sold our lifestyle block. We found her to be a very self driven person, who is a passionate, enthusiastic, motivated real estate agent. Debs is an excellent communicator with prompt replies. We have no hesitation in recommending her services.
Jenny and Graeme Dickey
We have worked with Debs as both a vendor and as a purchaser. We have found Debs to be the hardest working agent we have worked with. She is extremely reliable and available at any time, day or night. Not only is she very professional, but also a fun person to be around. We would happily recommend Debs to anyone looking to sell their home, or even wanting some help in finding their next home.
Brad and Melissa Potier
We recently sold our lifestyle property through Debs Wallace who was recommended to us. She, together with Karen Cherry, have done a marvelous job for us under sometimes difficult circumstances. Her very professional approach showed through on many occasions. Her assistance in the sale was excellent, her knowledge and guidance was much appreciated and we achieved a sale in a very short space of time.
Julie and Paul Wood.
Deborah knows the property market, she knows people and she knows how to negotiate. She is without doubt the best agent in Auckland and her record shows it. Dynamic, professional, resilient and a cut above the rest. Whether it’s a lifestyle or suburban property she will prove to be your best asset.
I felt very at ease with Debs Wallace and believe she always had my best interest at heart. Debs made the process of selling my house from start to end very stress free and I would recommend her to all my family and friends. Thank you Debs.
We recently engaged Debs Wallace to sell our lifestyle property. From the outset we were most impressed with Debs professionalism and enthusiasm, she achieved a wonderful result in a very short time frame with an absolute minimum of fuss. We would have no hesitation in recommending Debs to anyone who wishes to sell their property.
Barry and Gail
Thank you Debs for your fantastic effort in selling our property. Your expertise is second to none. We felt totally comfortable with you right from the start and your ongoing communication throughout the process was much appreciated. In the lead up to the deal being done your focus and expert advice were invaluable and helped us through a potentially stressful process. We hope to be in our next property until we are 90 but if you are still around then selling houses we will definitely pick you.
Pat and Tim Felton
Debs has handled 3 real estate transactions for us – 2 purchases and 1 sale – these being over the past 13 months. On all 3 occasions, we have been most impressed with Debs’ professionalism from start to finish. We were especially most impressed with how she handled the recent sale of our property. She delivered way above expectation, not only in terms of sale price but also in cutting down the stress of selling by securing the sale within such a short period of less than 2 weeks after being signed on as our Agent.Debs is such an easy person to get along with, and we would have no hesitation in engaging her further services for future property requirements, and would highly recommend her to any person wanting immediate satisfying results.

Ken and I thank you for conducting the sale of Sea Cliff House, Island View Drive, to the lovely California couple, who are now our friends. Even though selling a house can be a delicate business transaction, we however enjoyed the process as much as any one can – your quick wit and skill in all aspects of real estate made us feel comfortable entrusting you with our largest asset. You seemingly effortlessly navigated through all aspects of what others might view complicated detail. Debs you on the other hand, through smoke screen or mirrors, we are still marvelling, had every thing covered (employing a competent P.A. to assist you is pure genius). From the arranging of a building inspector to come the very next day, even though Christmas loomed only days away; a time when every other land agent was already in holiday mode – to finding a lawyer and accountant who were suitable to handle the transactions of our international purchasers. I know for a fact that the new owners feel the same way we do, with only respect and genuine appreciation for making a complex transaction less so. We were impressed that you orchestrated the pick up of our buyers from the airport at the crack of dawn and bought them directly to view our home the very same morning. All parties were thankful for this extra mile and your vision to simplify the process was truly appreciated and helpful to all. You took charge (in a good way) and treated every one with respect. This is why we respect you Debs. You have earned it. To sum it up in a nutshell – you are more than competent, you are more than professional, and by far the most innovated and creative agent I have ever dealt with to date. Transactions for homes exceeding 3 million dollars to overseas buyers need far more skill and attention to detail than the average transaction would require. This is why we were grateful to have your knowledge and international experience so that we could move to the Bays to our family and enjoy a new adventure.
Janene and Ken Holyoake
Thank you so much for your help! It has been a wonderful trip. I feel fortunate to have met you and worked with you. You have made this easy and enjoyable. I feel that we have similar interests, values and priority. We will certainly continue working with you in the future.
Huawen & David
We just wanted to take moment to reflect and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your genuine and relaxed manner in which you advised us and shared with us your experience and knowledge. Everything you advised about market trends, details on recent sales, and calibrating our expectations in the current market landscape proved to be correct and we valued your guidance immensely in making our decision to purchase.
Thank you once again for opening up a brand new chapter of memories for our family for now and future generations to follow in this beautiful lifestyle property.
After eight great years living on our ‘dream’ rural property we recently made the reluctant decision to downsize.
However, we were soon confused by conflicting feedback on the value of our property; not to mention the potential impact of the Council’s just-released Unitary Plan. So, on an impulse I phoned Deb Wallace – a local agent who I had heard good things about as a rural property specialist who knew our area very well. It turned out that Deb was on holiday in Noosa when I phoned her early one morning (Aussie time) and I was embarrassed to have interrupted her vacation. However, Deb listened to my concerns, gave very helpful advice and arranged to visit our home and supply a no-obligation appraisal on her return. After meeting with her and discussing our options we listed our property with Deb and just two weeks later (even before our first open home) she had found a purchaser at an appropriate price. At all times in what turned out to be a very stress-free process (brief as it was!) Deb’s approach was both professional and down to earth.
I would definitely engage Deb again and recommend her to anyone with a property for sale, looking to purchase or simply for some realistic guidance with real estate.
A BIG SHOUTOUT to Deborah Deborah Wallace of Harcourts Realty for being truly amazing and going the extra mile to get the job done. Her boundless positive enthusiastic attitude is infectious. I am honoured to include her as a true friend. Thanks Debs for all your patience, support and valuable advice. The finest most hard working realtor in Auckland.
After listing our property with another agency and being unsuccessful. We decided to list with Debs Wallace after she was highly recommended to us by a few different people. I found Debs very approachable and extremely professional. She is definitely a vendors agent and always had our best interests at heart. We achieved a great result at auction under difficult circumstances.
I would highly recommend her to anyone that is thinking of selling …Thank you for everything Debs x
Debs is an amazing lifestyle sales agent. She made the whole process extremely easy, was always available and you ALWAYS dealt directly with her, no one else. She absolutely knows her stuff and does her best for you. Should we sell again we wouldn’t consider using anyone else.
Megan & Jurgen
“Debs was enlisted to sell our lifestyle property after a failed auction and campaign with another real estate agency. She was up front with her thoughts on why the property had not sold at auction and provided a way forward to sell our property. Debs explained how she would market and sell the property, and gave us a realistic time frame on which the property would be sold. Within 3 weeks of appointing Debs we were presented with an unconditional offer. Debs is an open, straight up, and professional person. She was so easy to deal with and very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. I would not hesitate to recommend her”.
Jo and Trevor Green
We engaged Debs to sell our property in Hillcrest which was an unusual property situated on a bush section, not what the average Hillcrest buyer was after. However, Debs was brilliant at representing us as the vendor during the sales process. She remained calm and positive throughout the sales campaign and kept us optimistic of a sale. Debs has a clear communication style, is easy to deal with and responds promptly to communications even though she is very busy. Her personality leaves you feeling like you’ve had a professional real estate experience without feeling like you’ve had a stereotypical real estate agent sell your house. I would most definitely sell future properties through Debs if the opportunity presented itself again.
Roger and Kirstien Taylor
We have been through the most difficult times in our lives, and selling our home was not easy for us. You supported us beyond anyone would have, you went the 200 mile for us, just to help us. Your caring nature, expertise and efficiency makes you as the best in your industry- we believe you are truly the best.
The Reeves family thanks you for everything you done for us. We love you Debs.
The Reeves Family
Our family recently purchased a property using Deborah Wallace from Harcourts Cooper & Co. From the onset Deborah was friendly and approachable, she had excellent communication skills, was extremely efficient, professional and had appropriate knowledgeable about the property.
All of our queries were answered and if the information was not to hand she sourced it and came back with it very quickly.
She instilled a confidence that we were in the right hands and we felt she was considerate of both party’s needs and expectations. There were regular follow ups to see if there was anything further we required as she guided us through the purchase process. Her focus on the end result was beyond question.
Her willingness to go the extra step and ensure there were no problems was exemplary and we would have no hesitation in recommending Deborah to others who value professionalism, honesty and integrity in a Real Estate Agent. Deborah exceeded out expectations with quality service, communication and managing the process from start to finish very very well.
Finally, we would once again like to thank Deborah for all her help in finding and securing our family a home.
Daryl Buckingham and Bobbie Stroobant
After listing our property with another agency and having very little serious interest we began to lose confidence, however after making the decision to switch, I can say to anyone that working with Debs has been the most positive relaxed and enjoyable experience we have ever had selling property, and to top it all off we had the “SOLD” sticker within a short couple of weeks and at a great price too. We have loved getting to know Debs and can see why so many people choose and recommend Debs time and time again. Debs was fantastic in all aspects of our dealing and is able to provide a wealth of advice with a no pressure approach. We were also lucky enough to spend extra time with Debs helping us to find our new property and has provided a truly caring approach for what her customers are looking for, once she gets to know you and your family, her intuition is enough for her to know when she is at the perfect place for you. Thanks again Debs and we will look forward to seeing you in the very near future again.
Amir and Bev Fouladi
We had met Debs when looking for an earlier property and liked her open straight forward approach without any hint of her seeking an easy sale. More recently she was highly recommended by good friends of ours so she was the only agent we considered. Her professionalism, sensitivity and knowledge were much in evidence and she totally fulfilled our expectations and delivered on what she said could be achieved. We would recommend her without reservation. Be ready for early morning texts, she starts early and is a top negotiator!
Debs is an open, straight up, yet professional person. She was so easy to deal with and very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. I would not hesitate to recommend her. She did a truly skillful job on our recent purchase of our dream home!
We have found Debs to be friendly, engaging and very nice to deal with. She takes all the hassle out of buying and selling a home. Nothing is a problem for her. Having bought and sold many houses over the years Debs is most definitely one of the best to deal with.
We have known Debs Wallace for more than 15 years. She has acted for us as our Real Estate Agent and been successful with many Sales and Purchases of property. We highly recommend her as being extremely efficient, very honest in every way.
She has also become a very good friend to us.
Kevin & Rosie Orrell
We found Deborah Wallace a true professional when she recently sold our property. Deborah streamlined the whole process from the start and advised in all areas. Her comprehensive knowledge of market is second to none.
Ross & Jane Wilton
I first met Debs Wallace a couple of years ago when viewing a house and since then have seen her frequently in both a professional and a personal capacity. She is an extremely hard working and dedicated real estate agent who I have seen work tirelessly for her clients, whether vendors or purchasers. Debs is diligent and has the highest ethical standards, which along with her extensive knowledge of the North Shore lifestyle market makes her an invaluable asset when selling or purchasing a property. I would recommend Debs Wallace without reservation.
We previously dealt with Deb Wallace of Harcourts last year when we relocated to New Zealand from Asia. We were concentrating upon the Coatesville vicinity and found Deb to have a wealth of knowledge of the area. She really went out of her way to initially give us a fantastic overview of the area by showing us a broad spectrum of property as well as land. Nothing seemed to much trouble and Deb was more than happy to show us many properties on the market at the time which helped us to narrow down our requirements. She listens well and has excellent ideas for improvements to some properties, in short she opened our minds and took a very pro-active aproach in helping us search the market as opposed to just showing us around homes. Her input to our property search was invaluable and her professional approach would leave us without hesitation to recommend her services to all to buy or sell.
Barrie and Chrissie Sheers
Debs Wallace was referred to us by a friend of ours who had dealings with Debs on some previous real estate deals. We had been considering selling our house but to be frank were still undecided. We spoke with Debs and expressed the view that we weren’t sure if we wanted to sell our property or not. Debs was fantastic. No high pressure sales speak, no inflated house value, simply down to earth honest advice. A week or so later we agreed to give Debs “a go” so we signed a one month sole agency to test the waters. During this period Debs sourced a couple of people who might be interested and arranged for them to view the property. No sale in that first month however, she impressed sufficiently to give her a further extension. Debs also advised us to have some photos taken (which she arranged) which turned out to be superb. 7 days after the photos went on line the house was sold unconditionally. A fantastic result!
During this time the things that impressed us the most was her honesty, her enthusiasm and most of all her ability to keep us informed every step of the way. We would have absolutely no difficulty recommending Debs Wallace to any one contemplating selling or buying a property.
Bill and Janet Donovan
We have used Deborah Wallace on multiple occasions over the last 12 years, and would highly recommend her. The reason we keep coming back to her is that she is a leading force in her field and really goes the extra mile. In our first dealings with Debs, we were purchasing in NZ from overseas, and she provided invaluable support beyond the house purchase from fencing and building contractor contacts to submitting Kindergarten registrations! Always a real pleasure to deal with, she brings an unfailing energy and wealth of experience to buying and selling houses, often a stressful time. Professional at all times, no challenge is too great or request too hard. She never gives up. Her strongest attribute is her insightfulness: she really understands what we want and she knows how to put a deal together and close it.
From the moment we signed up with Debs Wallace to sell our home we knew she was the right person for the job. The photographs were taken by an award winning photographer and looked beautiful. Before long an extraordinary amount of interested was generated. We were secure in the knowledge that every person that attended personal viewings had been qualified. It was not a surprise when a good offer was made very early on. Debs worked beyond expectation to ensure the deal went through smoothly and we were well informed throughout the entire process. We are 100% happy with all aspects of our sale and will be calling on Debs the next time we wish to sell or purchase a property without hesitation
Craig and Anissa Phillips
We would like to say a big thank you to Debs for selling our home recently. We chose Debs to get the job done as from the minute we met we felt confident with her positivity and pro active approach along with her open and friendly manner – not to mention her outstanding sales record! Debs went the extra mile to make the sale work after 11 months of objections and negotiations, she never gave up and always showed a professional, positive and friendly manner 24/7. We would highly recommend Debs Wallace to sell your next home as not only did we meet a fantastic hard working salesperson – we have also made a great friendship!
D & M Morgan-Kemp
“Debs Wallace professional approach was instrumental in the successful sale of our property. Her energy , commitment and input into the marketing of our property was excellent. She went out of her way to accommodate both us and potential buyers, her assistance thru out the sale process was excellent.”
“Deborah Wallace has sold a number of properties for us over the past 12 years and she has never failed to deliver, always achieving and often exceeding the mutually agreed value for the property. Deborah is an amazing communicator she has a thorough knowledge and understanding of the Real Estate business, is honest about what she can achieve for you and is without question the agent you want working for you when negotiations start. Deborah is also one of the hardest workers we have ever met, she is relentless in her efforts to sell the properties she has listed and will work tirelessly to achieve a result, she has a wonderful positive attitude and is a pleasure to deal with. We would not hesitate to recommend Deborah (and have done on numerous occasions) to anyone who is wishing to sell a property.”
J & L Hicks
“Recently we relisted our home with Harcourts. Debs Wallace who we knew, asked to bring through a buyer. She did this (twice) and before we knew it we had sold! We found Debs to be extremely professional, honest and diligent during the entire process. Crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s thoroughly and communicating continually. We have bought and sold property in the Rodney district over the last 14 years and we consider working with Debs as easily the best experience we have had with a Real Estate Agent over this period.”
Helen and Steve | Waimauku
“Having bought & sold more than 20 residential & investment properties over many years, working with a new real estate representative is something that we always approach with caution. Debs & Miles Wallace were new to us when we made the decision to sell our home. We chose them largely because they were able to show a track record of success selling properties like ours. Working as a team Debs & Miles achieved a great result for us. This gave us the confidence to work with them to source a replacement home which met our particular needs. Having now achieved this, we are able to recommend Debs & Miles from the perspective of both vendor & purchaser – their approach certainly delivered both a good experience and value for us. We will be working with Debs & Miles again if the right opportunity comes along in the future.”
Andrew and Tania
“Selling your home is a bit like running a business. You want the marketing to be effective, get maximum profit and want the product to fly off the shelf. Selling your home with Debs Wallace and her business partner Miles Wallace provides just this. The team provided sound advice based upon their vast knowledge, insight and experience in the real estate market. On top of that they developed a great strategy for us. We found that Debs has excellent negotiation skills and has a manner that is reassuring and at the same time fun. Miles is like the ‘secret weapon’ as he has an amazing insight on the housing market and property values. The team talked to us in a straight manner, not over-inflating our expectations. They accurately predicted how the campaign would go, and then over-delivered on what was promised. 23 hours to get the first of 3 offers was a bonus! We would strongly recommend this team to any potential vendor”.
David & Julie Brown
“I’d never thought in a week time I could buy a wonderful lifestyle property which I’d been looking for nearly two years. It happened with Deborah’s hard working. At the first time we met her, she was so kind and patient listen to us and try to find out our real needs that somehow somewhere we’d never realised. Then, she could show us the suitable properties immediately and that was the right one. It may be because she is so familiar with Coatesville area and the lifestyle properties there are just in her mind. She was very professional and high efficient during the process, each single piece of information was very clear and useful. She was alway vey straight up and honest to us, it made us comfortable and gave us more confidence. Finally, we got a lively property with a reasonable price. Well done.Thank you for your help, Deborah.”
“I have never seen any real estate agent who truely demonstrates the spirit of “every time is the opening night” until I met Debs and Miles. Over the years, I have worked with them both as a buyer and a seller. They are able to present the property to its best. What makes them special is the dedication towards the client. Not one request I had had gone by without being answered. Their sheer passion and in-depth knowledge of lifestyle property make them by far the best agent in this high end market. I would say they are truly exceptional!”
“Hi just had confirmation from lawyer, emailed you copy let me know if all ok or if i can do anything else. Just want to say you are wonderful and because of you’re hard work we have a great result. You should be proud of yourself. Thanks again.”
Kurt and Debby Bell
“Thank you so much for all your effort especially helping to clean my house last week – impressive. It has been a pleasure working with you, your communication and professional manner has made the whole process a breeze.”
“This letter is a reference for Deborah Wallace, acting as Real Estate Agent for our property in Oak Lane, Coatesville. We listed our house at the end of 2013 with Deborah as her enthusiastic approach and positive attitude towards the house was encouraging. She named a figure that we could expect to attain, and therefore listed our property with an inflated figure because she said that purchasers would expect us to drop our price somewhat. Surprisingly, we did end up achieving an offer that was exactly within the range she originally suggested! Deborah did EXACTLY as she promised prior to us listing. She always gave us plenty of notice if wanting to show the property to anyone, and followed up immediately on the prospective purchaser’s thoughts. We had regular “meetings” over coffee and we feel we have gained a real friend because of these outings!
She is extremely approachable and honest, and always tries to find a solution if a purchaser raises concerns about an issue. She kept full control over our property regarding other agents – always ensuring they were accompanied by herself or Miles when coming through with their own clients. Her ability to “close” a deal (and bringing in a multi-offer for us at the last minute), shows her competency in this role. Her continuing assurance and absolute belief; and the knowledge of the buoyant property market made us very pleased to have listed with her; she did everything she could to make it a satisfying process for us. SHE DELIVERED EXACTLY WHAT SHE PROMISED.”
Heather & Craig Harris
“Debs and Miles Wallace have just sold my lifestyle property in Coatesville. From the moment I met with Debs, I knew she was the right agent to work with, her straight up, no frills attitude is refreshing and I totally related to this no nonsense approach. Any emotions and anxiety I had was replaced with confidence in the knowledgeable and professional manner in which they managed the process.
Contact was never more than a phone call, txt message or e-mail away, I received regular updates and communication was prompt.
I would gladly recommend Debs and Miles Wallace as the agents of choice in marketing your home and would have no hesitation in using them again in the future.”
“Deborah sold our property for us with a professional approach like no other, her honest and professional opinion installed confidence in us and I am sure helped buyers act with confidence during the process, she is able to talk knowledgably about properties in the area so both buyers and vendors gain an idea of markets conditions and land values, so as to act accordingly. She has an extremely sound knowledge of the area where we lived and this is imperative in the sales process. I would recommend her to any person as your choice of Agent.”
“Tony and I found Deb and Miles approach to selling our house refreshing and quite different to any sales team we had come across and yes we have sold a lot of houses over the past 10 years. We felt totally respected and found their policy of not focussing on the negatives refreshing. Their honesty in guiding not only the buyer but also us as vendors was much appreciated. I would recommend anyone to Deb and Miles when selling their home and will always use them in the future. Once again Thank You.”
Deb & Tony Wilson
“Debs patiently worked with us for around 18 months before she insisted on taking us to what is now our dream home. Debs Listened to us and didn’t waste our time, taking us only to properties that met our brief. On each occasion we viewed a home she told us what we needed to know up front – what was going on with the property (good and bad) and how much would buy it. Debs best talent we believe is closing the deal – never seen anything like it!”
Pauline and I wish to thank you and congratulate you on selling our property .
You achieved this in a thoughtful and professional manner, you gave us confidence with your enthusiasm, personality, and knowledge, knowing you were meeting, greeting , and negotiating for us gave us peace of mind that you would do the best you possibly could , and you achieved all this in under three weeks You constantly stayed in touch and gave us all the feed back and information available. We will be singing your praises to all our friends and contacts who require a sale or purchase in the future. Fondest regards”
“Moving into a lifestyle property was a dream of ours for many years. We started looking around and sending emails to real estate agents regarding their listings. As you know, some agents reply and some don’t. One name that stood out in our inbox was Deborah (Debs). She was someone who replied to us every time we emailed, and answered every question – whether big or small. At first we weren’t really sure of the exact kind of property we wanted – we just had a rough idea in our minds. She understood our situation and straight away picked a few properties for us to view. She then quickly helped us to work out our needs and requirements and identified the most suitable property for us. Debs is not just skillful and knowledgeable in the field of properties, she also has great people skills and a warm heart. She worked hard for us and was always available when needed her. We count ourselves very lucky to be one of Debs’ clients, and would unhesitatingly recommend her to any of you. Thanks Debs!”
Wei & William
“Deb has recently sold my property and I have no hesitation in recommending her as an excellent agent.She has a real and genuine feel for the buyers needs and balances this with reliable and diligent attention to the vendors needs as well.”
“It’s hard to find a real estate agent that actually listens to your needs, we found this with Deborah Wallace. Deborah goes the extra mile and helps with every step of the way from purchasing and also moving in. I think you are a fantastic agent.”
Sandra and Paul Prouse
“Deborah Wallace is an outstanding Real Estate Agent. She is also a very special person. Never before, in all our dealings with Real Estate agents have we come into contact with such an honest , hard working and diligent person. Deborah took the time to get to know us and our property and how it sat in the market place. She represented us in a caring and dutiful manner, she never mislead us or massaged our expectations, no false promises and no bull. Deborah is the only agent we have ever met that makes a very stressful process as painless as possible and the key to that is her professional and sympathetic approach combined with her knowledge, experience and eloquent communication skills. Deborah went beyond the requirements of her job to help us achieve a satisfactory outcome. Previous dealings had left us feeling embittered and cynical about the profession and it’s practitioners. In Deborah we have found a real angel, she has restored our faith and will endeavour to enlist Deborah’s help in any future dealings in Real Estate. I can not praise her enough and recommend her as a first choice for anyone considering buying or selling a property. Thank you most sincerely Deborah, thank goodness we found you.”
