Thank you Debra Tosh at RE/MAX for leading me through the process of buying my wonderful house in Belleville that fit my budget in a great neighbourhood. From the first day when you drove me around town so this newcomer to Quinte could get to know different areas, my housing needs and tastes, to the frequent email alerts over many weeks about new houses coming on the market and scheduling of visits to see them and the final negotiations with the seller’s agent to secure an agreement - - I’m so glad I chose you as my real estate agent in Belleville.

Well Debra, I guess you clicked your heels together and presto, we landed on William street, Belleville. There we found a house that I can call home.

As with my brother four years ago you made the experience of house shopping smooth, organized and enjoyable. Being new to the house market from a condo your advice, knowledge and ample list of viewings made things easy when we found the right one. It has been a pleasure working with you on my new beginning and my advice to all is simple.


OH MY GOSH YOU NEED DEBRA TOSH!

Debra did it again!! This was our second time working with Debra and she was able to make every situation fun! We put Debra in a tight place with putting an offer in on a new house while our house wasn’t even ready to put on the market, but Debra stayed true and promised we would have our house sold before the deal fell through!! Sure enough she made it happen, 3 weeks later we sold our house and had a new house! Thanks for all the hard work you put in with us Debra!!

Confidence and patience; that’s what it took to find the perfect house with the perfect yard. Debra Tosh had both confidence and patience and kept me steady as we searched for the right place. She kept right on top of things all the way along. Always quick to arrange viewings, and very, very helpful while walking through many homes. She pointed out every plus and minus as we went along. As we got to know each other, we really synced up with my wants and needs. That helped me save time and travel. Debra worked hard for me and was a pleasure to spend time with. Her experience and knowledge of the Belleville area, plus her tenacity were great assets, and ultimately helped me find a new place to call home. Thanks for everything Debra!

Our warmest thanks to Debra for helping us buy our new home! Debra was fantastic throughout the whole process and went way above and beyond the call of duty including letting us use her CAA membership to have our car towed to a local gas station, taking us into her own home for a much needed glass of wine while we waited for the tow truck and then driving us to the mechanic!!

We were very impressed with how well she knew the home we wanted to buy and it’s history and also of her knowledge of Belleville and it’s nearby towns. Her warmth, enthusiasm and professionalism as stress free as possible. We are from Toronto and new to Belleville, but Debra made us feel very welcome and cheerfully introduced us to the people who are soon to become our new neighbours.

If everyone in Belleville turns out to be as great as Debra we will consider ourselves to be very lucky indeed! I would and already have highly recommended her to my own parents and a few friends.

Buying a new house is usually stressful enough but doing it from over 3500 miles away is almost unimaginable. Debra made the entire process so much easier for us and bent over backwards to meet our every need. Being a local herself she was able to provide us with invaluable in depth knowledge of the area and street and was always only a quick phone call or email (or video chat on our case!) away to help and support us through the process.

We couldn't have done it without her and we are very appreciative that she was able to make this experience so comparatively smooth and simple.

Many, many thanks :)

Debra was very patient for 10 months while we searched for the right house. House hunting is not as easy, when you don’t live close by, but Debra was always pleasant and helpful when we called on a moment’s notice and wanted to drive to Belleville and see a house. Her knowledge of the area and indeed many of the actual homes we inquired about, was fantastic. This gave us a great sense of trust. She had also worked real estate previously in Toronto, where we are from and so knew our situation there as well.

But the important thing is that she made the process fun. We always looked forward to meeting and going through houses with her. We never felt rushed, even though we spent almost 2 hours looking at one house!

Thanks Debra!

There was never any doubt that Debra would be our “agent” when it came time to leave Albert Street. Debra met our expectations in every way.

Debra’s creative marketing skills are amazing! Debra started taking pictures a full year before Michael’s transfer, to Peterborough, materialized. She knew that pictures taken during all four seasons would help when marketing our property. She would be ready even in the dead of winter. Her “visual tour”, use of social media, newspapers etc… all showed remarkable professionalism and attention to detail.

She cheerfully gave of her precious weekend time to conduct four successful open houses. Debra’s availability, dedication and strong people skills all helped her achieve her goal, to sell our house.

At a time when larger, older homes in Belleville were not in huge demand, Debra not only helped us be realistic and patient but above all hopeful. When we started the process Debra asked whether we wanted to “list” our home or “sell” it. We replied, “Both!” In a surprisingly short time, that’s what she did!

Whether buying or selling, we would not hesitate to recommend “Debra Tosh”!

Debra Tosh is not only a very experienced and knowledgeable real estate agent that gets the job done but is one who really cares about her clients needs and wants. I never felt pressured to make a decision it was always what was best for me and she guided me through till the final ownership. I also had her look for a home for my sister who moved to Belleville a few years back who needed to buy in December on very short closings and she did a wonderful job of finding the perfect fit for her under very tight time restrictions. I would recommend anyone who wants a real estate agent to work for them and their best interests to call Debra Tosh.

From a Very Appreciative Client

It has been a long journey for Debra and myself, since I decided to sell my home. While I was sitting in my sunroom Saturday morning listening to 91.3 “Big Band” music, I passed up a brief prayer for the real estate agent that I should have. Very shortly thereafter I heard Debra’s advertising on the program and had a small sense of God’s peace that this is who I should pursue. Debra has been professional, always respectfully listening to me as to what was important, friendly, positive and very hard working. I found her to be honest in her feedback from showing how to present the house suggestions and other comments. I never had to question her integrity. She never gave up and encouraged me as well, that the house would sell. Some of my friends would hint that I should perhaps consider someone else, but I said NO, as I knew Debra has played her part well and I mine. I even had a neighbour comment what a good job she had done on the computer presenting my home. I always knew that she was working hard for me, as I had over 40 showings this time round. I highly recommend Debra to anyone!

Jayne and Joel Peters

I am very pleased to provide a testimonial for Debra Tosh. Debra has been our real estate agent for several years securing suitable tenants for our executive rental home in Belleville. We live primarily in Toronto so it was especially important that we found an agent we could trust, who knew the type of prospect we would be comfortable with, and who remained interested in us despite the fact we aren't home sellers.

Debra has excelled on all counts. She is savvy, dedicated and loyal. We feel lucky to have found her (through referral). We would have no problem referring her to our Toronto friends if they decide to leave the city for retirement in this truly beautiful locale on the Bay of Quinte.

After a great deal of research, I decided to hire Debra Tosh to sell my house in Prince Edward County, Ontario. Debra did a FANTASTIC job. Selling my beloved century home from a distance (and another country!) was a special challenge; I was in California for almost the entire process. Several times she went beyond the call of duty for me. She made everything work, and with a smile and with much professionalism. And no typos! From start to finish, nothing was left undone, and her communication skills were impeccable. I would not hesitate to recommend Debra for your Real Estate needs. 5 stars well earned!

When I think about Debra, the words that come to mind are positive spirit, tenacity, perseverance and loyalty. There are many things to learn and understand when you are selling your house. In the process of negotiating deals, circumstances can change and Debra was always able to keep my spirits up during the process. She was always there by my side, helping me to understand the process. She was my coach. Debra has excellent communication skills and is very straight forward and honest.

It was fun working with you, you took great care of the big stuff but also had time for the little stuff — all our questions and worries etc. Buying/selling is a stressful process, it was made much easier by having someone like you who had all the answers or knew where to get them, working with a real professional sure makes it easier, thanks!!

“Debra Tosh helped me sell my home and she also found a new home suitable for my family. I think with any other agent I would not be living where I am today. Debra spotted the seller’s listing the moment it came on the market. We saw the house and made an offer right away. Debra presented our offer in person as there was a second offer as well. She wanted to be sure the sellers would hear our offer correctly from her. We got the house! As the possession date got closer the seller ended up talking to Debra directly instead of to their listing agent when they had any questions. I think that shows how approachable and reliable, (and charming perhaps?), that Debra Tosh is. She doesn’t stop working after the sale has been made and is very helpful to anyone involved in her transactions. Superior after the sale service! I highly recommend Debra Tosh as an excellent all-around realtor. Her attitude, experience and knowledge are beyond compare!”

I have known Debra Tosh since shortly after we first moved to Belleville, in August, 2004. Since that time, she has represented or assisted myself and members of my family in buying and selling a number of homes, land, and cottages, and over the years I have recommended her services to many friends and business aquaintances.

She is always highly professional, informed, and available, providing advice and keen insight on everything from staging to lenders, repairs to pricing and background information.

Debra’s real estate know-how is only outpaced by her people skills - she always knows what’s going on, and who to call. I rely on Debra to tell me the real story, and to always behave with integrity and trustworthiness.

Armed with the task of selling my parent’s home from out of town was to say the least, daunting and filled with trepidation. Thankfully we contacted Debra and knew from the beginning that everything would be handled professionally. We were impressed by her conscientious, hardworking dedication to the sale of the home. Although we were far away, she managed to keep us informed during the total process and thank her wholeheartedly for the quick sale and her professionalism throughout the entire experience!

We first had the pleasure of meeting Debra Tosh in 1994, she sold us our first home. We were impressed then with her professionalism and sheer dedication to her chosen profession.
Nineteen years later we contacted Debra once again to help us sell that very home along with a rental property that we had purchased. Her attention to detail through her creative marketing techniques made all the difference to us. Debra’s professional presentation of our home impressed us once again. She was able to sell both places and also helped us purchase our new home.
We are thrilled beyond belief with the purchase of our new home which will be used for personal and business ventures in the future. We will continue to promote Debra as one of the most creative real estate agents in the Quinte area. We are sure that your winning style will bring you and your clients much success in the future.

Moving in itself can be stressful , however, moving to a new province 4 hours from your home in a period of 7 weeks is also hectic and nerve racking. We had to find a new place for the right price in the right location and we only had weekends to house hunt. Fortunately, we came upon Debra’s website and “OH MY GOSH” After 1 phone call, things just seemed to become a lot easier. We explained to Debra the situation we were in and she took over from there. We spent the day looking at different houses and 6 hours later she had found us a new HOME. Over and beyond her call of duty, she also recommended lawyers, home inspectors, restaurants , schools, employment opportunities, important phone numbers, and a quick tour of Belleville. Debra always kept us informed on every detail of the purchase via e-mails and telephone, and was always a pleasure to talk to, even breaking out some French from time to time. Thank you Debra!!
P.S Thank you Ruth for the ping-pong table. I hope we get as many hours of fun out of it as you did with your husband!

So I was 19 years old and getting ready to make one the biggest decisions of my life, I’m going to buy a house. I didn’t know the first place to start. I was at Joseph’s with Krista and we were all talking about looking at houses and about where to start and then Joseph spoke up and said “I know this GREAT real estate agent, her name is Debra Tosh and she so fun”. So I took his advice and called you. Well you took no time in getting together with us to sit down and talk about what we wanted. We got off to a bit of a rocky start, all of the houses we went to see on the first day were disgusting dives but you just seem to have a way of pointing out all the good things in each house (although there were very few and sometimes no good things). But you promised us we would keep looking, which we did. We went from Belleville to Trenton the next time we went out to look at houses in the pouring rain. You took us to what we thought was perfect house, to start off. It had everything we were looking for, a little over our price range. Then we continued on to look at more houses which had a lot in common to the houses in Belleville. So we put an offer in on the “Perfect House”, went through a huge ordeal and ended up getting played and walked away, but you reassured us, through the whole thing that it will all work out for the best. So we went and looked at a house north of Belleville out in the country, the last house we had not looked at in our price range. It was just before my 20th birthday we put in an offer and this time it all worked out for the best and I now own the house that is just perfect for Krista and I. You definitely earned your money working with us but you made this one of the best experiences of our life and would recommend you to anyone buying a house first time or 5th time. You didn’t make it about just going in and looking at the house, you made it fun, having laughs, and telling us all of your wild and crazy ideas and even sitting in a home-made hot tub with Krista. I thank you so very, very much for making this so much fun and cannot express how great of a time we had driving around with you and just talking about random different things.

Congratulations, your home is sold! Later that night I lay in bed thinking, HELP we have 8 weeks before we are homeless!!! The next morning I opened my e-mail to find Debra Tosh’s name and phone Number, sent courtesy of our K/W agent, with a note explaining that she had worked with Debra in the 80’s in Toronto, and what an excellent agent she was back then, and still is. I thought if Debra is anywhere near as good as Susan, then she is the agent for us!

From the moment we first talked on the phone I knew we were in good hands. Debra listened carefully to what we were looking for and made some wonderful suggestions. She took us to both new and re-sale properties to give us a good overview of what was available in our price range in the areas we were considering and willingly discussed the pros and cons of each. We visited 14 homes in Prince Edward County that first day, and all were good matches for what we were looking for! After a good nights sleep we called Debra to inform her that we wanted to put an offer in on one of the homes. Oh my, within one weekend we had a new home, one that is just perfect for us. GREAT JOB DEBRA!!!

We would highly recommend Debra Tosh. She is very professional, knowledgeable, honest, patient, enthusiastic, punctual, and has a way of making you feel you are her top priority. I hope we will never have to sell our new home but if we do, guess who will be hearing from us? Debra Tosh of course.

Hello! My name is Alistair and this is my son “Mac”. We are Bedlington Terriers and have lived in Belleville ever since we were old enough to leave our litter mates behind. However, in December 2011 our mistress decided to remarry and move away from the city. Moving is never easy but our mistress called Debra Tosh to list our house and in less than three weeks it was sold. Debra made it easy. She took great pictures of the house and us too to put on the website. Every time she came to the house she not only talked to our owner but to us too! She was very friendly and easy to work with but more importantly she was very effecient, kept constant, open communication with our mistress and made sure that every detail of the sale process was taken care of. We didn't like all those packing boxes and leaving our house behind but Debra made it simple and efficient for all of us. We can't recommend her more highly.

When I planned to move from Kingston to the Quinte area I asked a real-estate friend to refer me to the best agent in the area and she immediately put me in touch with Debra Tosh of REMAX Quinte.

Debra is wonderful to work with. She always gives excellent and realistic advice, whether we are buying or selling.

When we recently decided to sell our home, it was Debra Tosh we chose to list with. She always contacted us after showings and followed up with clients and other agents to keep our listing active! Despite a slower than normal spring, our home sold last month and we are thrilled!

I am so very pleased and lucky to have met and worked with Debra Tosh over the last 10 years! I am delighted to recommend Debra Tosh to you, for all you real-estate needs.

After having my house on the market for six months, I decided it was time for a change. I was deployed in Afghanistan at the time and went with Debra on a recommendation from a friend. Debra was very involved from the start which allowed me to feel comfortable with trying to sell my house from overseas. Despite being on a vacation when I first contacted her, she had an assistant come to look at the house on her behalf to start the process immediately. The house quickly went up as the featured property on her site and remained there until it was sold. It was only a few weeks later when I got home and met with Debra for the first time. She was very well prepared and had a strong knowledge of the local market. After a price drop recommended by Debra, I received two offers in less than a week. After the house sold, Debra remained extremely responsive over the next three months to my questions or concerns right up until closing day. I would strongly recommend Debra to anyone moving to or from the Quinte area! Thank you Debra!!

Debra Tosh was our realtor and would definitely be again. We had, of course, seen her Re/Max ad with her two puppies but had not met. She sold a house to our daughter and son in law about a year and a half ago and they were very pleased with the service provided and had only good things to say.

If you look in the dictionary under 'realtor', there should be a picture of Debra. She came to our house, did the listing and took many pictures inside and out. It was a cloudy day and pictures of the river weren't exactly as she wanted. Back she came and did some more until she was satisfied.

Our house sold in about a month and a half and with a very slow Belleville market in our price range, her hard work paid off.

If you are looking to buy or sell, Debra comes highly recommended by us. She is a particular, hardworking professional who knows real estate inside and out and has a great personality as well.
Debra, Larry and I thank you for making this easier for us than we thought it would be. We are very glad for the sale but, I must say, I will miss "Hello, this is Debra".

Many thanks again,
Larry and Donna Westfall.

Judy Thorp

I first contacted Debra Tosh when I was considering selling and moving to Belleville. She showed me a number of homes, condominiums, and freehold townhouses that would meet my needs. The three things what impressed me the most in looking at homes were; she pointed out possible things that I might not like as well as the features of the homes, she only showed me homes that I either requested to see or that she knew about that met my criteria and as important, I never felt rushed or pressured. When I decided to sell I chose to list with Debra as she gave me suggestions and much needed help again with no pressure. She advertised well and used a variety of methods to insure that my home got noticed.

When it came to finalizing both the offer on my new home and the one that I was selling Debra's expertise was invaluable. As I had never completed a real estate deal on my own before I had no idea what was involved and Debra walked me through every step and kept in close contact with me during the whole process.

It would be my pleasure to recommend Debra Tosh to anyone who is interested in buying or selling a home.

Moving is a stressful endeavour at the best of times. Our stress level was compounded by the fact that we were first time home buyers, and also that we were relocating to a city that was new to us, and that neither of us knew too much about. As luck would have it, one of our first inquiries about property in Belleville would link us up with Debra Tosh. Prior to our first meeting, we had forwarded to Debra a list of properties that might interest us. Upon arriving at her office, we were delighted to hear that she had lined up viewing appointments for every one of those properties and had added a few more properties to our list. She was very patient as our expectations evolved on the fly. She listened very carefully to what was important for us to have in a home. Debra gave insightful advice based on her extensive experience as an agent, a homeowner, and a resident of Belleville. Within a couple of hours of meeting Debra, our stress just seemed to melt away. She made us feel comfortable and at ease with her professionalism and her wonderful sense of humour.

To make a long story short, Debra found us the perfect house within our price range. We have moved in and, although we are not quite settled yet, the house just becomes more perfect everyday. We love the neighbourhood, the city, and all it has to offer. Belleville, so far, has truly lived up to being the “friendly” city.

We conclude by saying that if you are thinking of buying or selling in the Quinte region, you really should contact Debra for all your real estate needs. She is a top-notch agent, a pleasure to deal with, and the “Quinte—ssential” ambassador for the area. Thank you Debra!

Being in the Military, Jade and I are somewhat used to having things happen quickly and with little notice. But when we found out the beginning of May that we were being posted to Trenton mid June, and following that I would have to leave for training in the US at the end of june, we were quite apprehensive to say the least! That left us six weeks to get everything organized, SIX WEEKS! We didn't think it could be done! Then we met Debra Tosh.

We first spoke with her while searching for potential houses online. Jade has always wanted a classy century home and Debra was listing one that caught our eye. We emailed her with the particulars of our situation and she reassured us she would guide us along the way to finding the perfect property. Upon searching through her testimonials we found that Debra had dealt with several of our friends in the past who all spoke very highly of her, we were sold! After a marathon 3 days of viewing properties, Debra delivered on her promise and found us the perfect house!

Debra's knowledge of the process of a military move surpassed even our own. She was one step ahead of everything at all times. Not only did she show us houses but she also did a wonderful job of introducing us to the area, showing us where all the good restaurants, theatres, art galleries, antique shops, zoos, and wineries were. Throughout our house hunting trip Debra was cheerful, fun, classy, and best of all HONEST. She single-handedly made what at first seemed like quite a daunting move into an extremely pleasurable experience.

If you are looking for a Realtor to simply sell you a house, there are dozens in the Quinte west area, if you are looking for a friend to guide you through the process, there is only Debra Tosh.

I first ran into Debra the night we both received a Quinte Arts Council Art Recognition Award. I knew then we would be a good fit because of her energy and artistic flair.

I knew what I wanted and Debra found it for me. (As an artist I wanted a combination of a home and studio.) Even though we found my perfect fit Debra still showed me a few more homes to help me feel better about my decision. Her knowledge of the area can only be acquired by living and working here most of her life.

Oh my gosh Debra, you rock!
Thanks, Marc Budgie Bourdon horizontal rule.

My husband and I weren’t your typical clients. We were about to be married and were never seriously looking, just watching the market to see if a deal too good to pass came up. Debra has been a long time family friend to us and had recently handled the purchase of my parent’s home when they had relocated to Prince Edward County. A few times we would call Debra when we’d seen a listing and wanted to check it out. She was always more than willing to take the time to arrange a showing and give us the opportunity with no pressure or expectations. The weekend before our wedding last September a listing came up exactly where we wanted to be and in our price range. With little to no time to act Debra was amazing! Meeting me wherever she could to make this process effortless while I was dealing with last minute wedding planning! On what was one of the happiest days of our lives Debra added to that happiness when 20 minutes before leaving for the Church I received the phone call our offer was accepted! Shortly after our vows I shared the goods news and whispered to my new husband "We got the house!" What a fantastic, memorable experience! We cannot begin to thank Debra enough for her personal and professional assistance with the purchase of our first home!

We have know Debra for a long time, mostly through our connection with the Belleville Theatre Guild. Debra is extremely talented in the make-believe world of the theatre and, as a Real Estate Agent in the real world, has an exceptional talent to communicate, listen, research and help. We both felt that she "handled" us well, was very helpful when we asked for help and had lots of good advice. We do highly recommend Debra for for all your real estate needs ...

Being a young couple and buying our first home we knew that we were going to have very fun times ahead of us, and some very stressful times. Debra made sure that we were only right about the first one. She turned any situation that could have been a bad one into a humorous one, but didn't compromise her professionalism in the process. She is the perfect balance of experienced and entertaining.

From the beginning we felt no pressure at all and Debra always asked us what we thought, making our opinions and wants the top priority.

She responded to every email or phone call very quickly, even when our schedules would occasionally not allow us to do the same. The amount of energy and enthusiasm that she put into every aspect of the buying experience cannot be described to give it any justice. We are beyond happy with the house we have bought, so excited to move in, and we couldn’t have done any of it without Debra.

We recommend her highly to anyone wanting to purchase or sell a home. Everyone described buying as a stressful situation but we found it to be a breeze, and guarantee anyone who works with Debra will feel the same!

With so many real estate agents and brokers in the Quinte West - Belleville area, it was hard to know where to start. I asked people who recently moved to the area if they had a positive experience with their real estate agents, but, most just said that their agents were ok. So I did some research. After reading Debra's website, there were many positive attributes that I saw in her outside of being just an agent - active in the community, a volunteer in charitable organizations, and extra-curricular activities. Obviously these were not the only attributes that I liked - the 25 years of experience, the numerous positive testimonials, the articles to learn more about home buying, the experience of dealing with first time home buyers and CF members were all very important factors to my decision.
I had found my agent.

Debra was also very accomodating to my schedule. As a first time homebuyer, I wanted to see as many houses as i could possibly do in one day. Twenty-seven houses later, we called it a day. Despite nearly breaking records, Debra was still her cheerful self even going through house number 27.

Throughout the entire process, Debra was without a doubt, professional, cheerful, relaxed, encouraging, patient, and HONEST. I would refer Debra Tosh to anyone moving to the Belleville area. She made my first house purchase a pleasant experience.

We can't speak highly enough of Debra Tosh! She is a realtor par excellence! Debra is all about friendly, efficient service to her clients, above and beyond the call of duty.

Knowing that the home we purchased through her was 2-1/2 hours from our old one, she repeatedly volunteered to put us in touch with all the service people we needed. Debra is living proof of that old adage: if you want something done, ask a busy person. She is a whirlwind of productive activity! Debra made arrangements for us with contractors, water testers, home inspectors, window covering salespeople, appliance repairmen, house cleaners and septic tank pumpers, to name just a few. She even recommended a local doctor of good reputation!

We have moved numerous times over the past 30 years, but never have we worked with a more vibrant, friendly, obliging realtor. We are pleased to recommend her without hesitation. Debra is amazing!

A little over a year and a half ago I needed to sell a rather large triplex that was part of my divorce settlement. I had tried several different agents from various agencies for over two years and no one could even get a bite on my home.

I was introduced to Debra from a mutual friend and was immediately impressed with her down to earth approach. Upon meeting I was at ease and I knew that she would be the one to sell my house. She was amazing to talk to and she understand the urgency of my house selling. She immediately gave me a list of what to do to make the home show well. No questions- she said just do it! Simple things – yes – but they worked.

I did as she asked and Debra worked her magic and sold that house in under two weeks! Now that’s action! Especially on a home that was becoming an albatross to me.

She was always there to answer questions and keep me updated. Thanks to her she saved me financially and emotionally. The stress had finally stopped. I believe Debra was sent as my guardian angel at the right time and place.

She tackles everything with such elegance and panache. Always upbeat and positive, she is an amazing person that I have come to know and trust.

I heartily recommend Debra to anyone trying to buy or sell your home. No sleazy tricks- just open and honest communication. She gets the job done- you can rest your mind at ease if she’s in your court.

Her love of community and humanity give her that extra touch that other agents do not exhibit. I am now proud to call her a friend.

Oh my gosh, Debra is AMAZING!!! My husband is in the military and we needed to buy our first house in the area because of his posting. We did most of our business via phone from out of province and she was so organized and happy to help, she made buying our first home a breeze! We only had a few days to spend with her looking for houses and she had set up non-stop appointments and wasted no time at all. The few days we spent looking were very upbeat and fun. She never let us get discouraged about anything, we had a blast!!! Debra took such incredible care of us! She found us a beautiful home under our budget but way above our expectations! It's not just us that loved Debra it was also our bank, lawyer and home insurance company. Every time we talked to them they would say "Debra already phoned to make sure everything was on track, she's so nice!" We were expecting a lot of headaches not being in town and trying to buy a house but Debra really understands how military moves work and was very fast and efficient knowing that we only had 3 days to look. If you are in the Military let Debra serve you, you will not be dissappointed!!! Any time we had a question we would e-mail her and the next time we looked in the in-box there was a message right back! I swear there has to be two of her!!! She is so knowledgeable of all things real estate. There was no question that went unanswered. She was extremely straight forward with no beating around the bush about anything! When it was time to put in an offer she already had a great home inspector and lawyer ready to suggest to us so we didn't have to run around looking and wasting time. Within only 5 days we looked at over 25 houses, made an offer, had our new home inspected and were on our way back home to start packing!!! She completely surpassed all of our expectations and some! We very highly recommend Debra if you want things done right, efficiently and with the most care possible!

All we have to say to Debra is, "THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!"

Debra, we really appreciated your efficiency and patience in trying to find us a home here in Belleville. You were referred to us by a representative of Remax in Niagara Falls who is a friend and you came highly recommended. You were always available to meet our schedule, with us coming in and out of the City. After many attempts at viewing homes, we finally found a great one in Belleville and happy you were there to make sure that all of the closing information went correctly. We also really appreciated the time you gave us with information about the Community and services available in the City of Belleville. On another note, Debra's artsy side is fabulous and we had a chance to see you in Gypsy. You were great and sounded just like "Moma Rose" ...

My husband and I had a tough assignment for our realtor Debra Tosh: we wanted to buy a home in Belleville, sight unseen, from long distance (we're currently in B.C.). The home had to fit our many particular needs, be within our budget, and fulfill our desire for character and quality. It had to be in a neighbourhood that would appeal to us. It couldn't be too big, or too small. It was to be our future retirement home.

Well, Debra, our wonderful realtor, managed all of that, and more for us. We were not easy clients either. I was very nervous about the long distance, sight unseen aspect of this venture. Debra took tons of detailed photos of houses we were interested in, showing us the details as clearly as if we were walking through the houses and yards ourselves; everything right down to wiring, timbers in the basements, and little nooks and crannies. She was interested in helping us find the perfect house; she steered us away from anything unsuitable (nope- that one's overpriced; nope- bad neighbourhood). And find the right house she did!
We finally visited our home this summer; and we love it! It's so exactly right for us. I know we're going to be very happy there. I can't wait for the move! (By the way, it's currently rented out, and Debra even made the arrangements for that and the property management).

We had been searching for the right home for some time. We can confidently state that Debra is the BEST! With a realtor like Debra on your side, even a difficult venture like this one can turn out to be a wonderful and exciting experience.

The prospect of selling one home and purchasing another can be a daunting one. Debra easily and with great humour took control, helping us every step of the way. With her expert advice and help with the staging, we quickly got the price we were asking for our home. And when we wondered whether or not we were ever going to find the new home we were looking for, Deb didn’t give up, making sure we saw everything available.

Whether it was getting down to business with the inspectors, lawyers and other agents, or relaxing over a cup of tea to chat about the next things we needed to do, Deb was professional, easy to work with, and always ready to help us out. She turned our daunting task into a successful, stress-free move. What a pleasure!

Having never sold my house before and with looming concerns about buying another home, I was apprehensive about the outcome. Debra was excellent in her friendly approachable attitude which alleviated my concerns. The listing of my house occurred during a slow period of the market year but I was impressed with Debra's continued efforts to keep my listing active by showcasing the house during this slow period. I think that this additional effort resulted in the successful sale of my first house and eased the transition for the purchase of my second home, and just in time for summer! Thanks Debra for your hard work and always positive perspective.

In the spring of this year (2007) my husband and I were faced with a painful reality. Both of my parents had now passed away and the beautiful home which had been in my family for over 60 years had to be sold. Turning to Debra Tosh & Remax to help with this task was the best "move" we ever made. They were knowledgeable in the field, patient with us dragging our feet as we moved at a slow pace in making some of the painful decisions which had to be made, and, they showed a tremendous amount of respect for the property and possessions which were so dear to us. From the initial phone call to Debra, right through to the closing date, she made sure that we understood every necessary step which had to be followed within the legal process, yet never lost sight of the emotional stress we were under. Her fabulous smile and cheerful demeanour were great "medicine" for our heartache. Thanks Debra!

As first time homebuyers in Belleville, we knew our price range but were not sure which area to look in or, in fact, what type of house we wanted. Old vs. new, East Side vs. West Side etc. Debra sat us down and patiently went through the many pros and cons of various neighbourhoods, problems we might encounter with older homes, resale values, and the list was very detailed. She asked questions about our life style and requirements. After Debra created our "profile", she then made a short list of properties to view. No time was wasted viewing homes that did meet our criteria. We found her efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable. I have since not hesitated to recommend her to family and friends.

You had more cons then pros against you selling this unique property. Your patience is immeasurable, especially with all my frantic correspondence. I still remember when you had your whole family over for Thanksgiving, you were with us at your office, again displaying your dedication. Your motivation and professionalism is what sold our property. You are a very positive lady who gets the job done.

Debra Tosh combines the best of small town friendliness, owing to her growing up in Belleville, with a hip and with-it attitude of her time spent living and working in Toronto and other larger centres. We found her to be thoroughly professional and well prepared for all our meetings. In particular, her guideline of to how to prepare a home for market was most helpful. It was very complete and steered us through the many details of the process without us having to spend much further time in consultation with her or other advisors. Debra represented us very well in the bidding process and was on the spot and available for everything required in the closing procedures. Her sense of market value and her willingness to do a few extras in the way of research were much in evidence. In addition, she is well connected in the community and spends hours each year involved in fund-raisers for charities and non-profit organizations. Overall, we had a very fine experience dealing with Debra, were very satisfied with the financial results and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone seeking to list or purchase property in the Quinte area.

As a first time home buyer, I wasn't faced with the time constraint that confronts a lot of people entering the real estate market. Debra was very patient with me, taking the time to show me many properties over the period of several months. She never pressured me into making a decision and I valued her judgement and her professionalism. She was very helpful in my search for a new home.

As a land use planner, I have had many professional contacts with real estate agents over the years. To be frank, some are less than competent; others I find can be pushy. Debra is neither. She has both the knowledge and the personal charm to capably represent your interests. I would recommend her to anyone.

We had anticipated buying a house in a year or two, but when the place we were living in was sold and the new owners wanted to move into our apartment, we had to change our plans in an instant. Although we considered renting elsewhere, we decided to take the plunge and buy our own home; that's when Debra Tosh became involved. With one telephone call, Debra immediately made herself available to us. She helped us feel comfortable about the house-hunting process and quickly arranged for us to view numerous properties we had an interest in. We were so grateful when Debra anticipated details we hadn't even considered and guided us from start to finish through each step.

When we found our home, Debra did some extra research and arranged for us to look at similar houses in the same price range, enabling us to compare properties and ultimately confirm our final decision. Debra assisted us with her insight, experience, professionalism, and undivided individual attention. She remained positive and supportive, always ready, willing and able to answer questions or offer useful information. In addition, and this cannot be underestimated, her dynamic personality and unfaltering sense of humour kept us laughing and turned what could have been a truly stressful experience into a pleasant journey, ending in the realization of our goal; finding our own home.

We can't thank Debra enough; when we're sitting in our sunny back yard admiring our garden, or relaxing in the evening in front of our cozy fire, we're reminded that Debra helped us to make it possible. We're staying put, but if we had to do it over again, our first call would be without hesitation to Debra Tosh. We recommend her highly. Thanks Debra!

My partner and I had definite ideas as to what we were and were not looking for in our first home. We talked to many friends and family members about the horrors of buying a home and to be completely honest, we were terrified.

Debra was the best! She organized viewing times around our busy schedules; she picked me up and drove me to look at our chosen property, she recommended a great lawyer, in short she took care of all the details so we could just enjoy the wonders of becoming home owners. There were no horrors, just exciting times, no stress to be had, Debra made sure that everything was seamless and easy. Right down to making and countering offers, closing dates and house inspections, Debra is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We really had a lot of fun with Debra; she made buying our first home easy, exciting and fun. I can't say enough about how wrong our family and friends had been.

Debra was excellent to work with and I would highly recommend her. Thanks again.

We had outgrown our large home in Old East Hill and made the decision to go country living. I had previously met (Debra at a function and instantly liked her personality and sense of humour. Later on I found out she was a Real Estate Agent and she came to mind the minute we decided to relocate. I called her up and she came over immediately to discuss a plan of action. As this was the first time experience with the process of buying and selling we were unsure as to what the process was. We knew we wanted to buy a house in the country but that was the extent of our knowledge.

Debra's professional assessment of the situation proved perfect she suggested we look and buy first and then put our house on the market, as she was positive it would sell within a month. She was absolutely correct; it did, within a month we had the SOLD sign up and had our deal closed on the house we purchased and all 45 days earlier than expected

As you can expect the whole ordeal of buying and selling a home is quite traumatic but with Debra we found her humour was appreciated during the real stressful situations and her strength and forcefulness was welcomed when we needed her to ask those tough questions. She is a real gem and we would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a professional down to earth, kind of agent who is honest, truthful, funny and witty and in the end makes the whole ordeal worth the experience.

Sincerely, Oh by gosh call Debra Tosh we did and sure are glad we did.

It gave me confidence that someone was looking out for us.. She spent lots of time with us and her choice of homes was excellent. She didn't take me through places that we couldn't afford or didn't suit our purposes and she advised us about neighbourhoods that we would be comfortable in. She gave us great contacts for professional services, like a lawyer and a contractor, as well as pointing out good restaurants, hairdressers, grocery stores, etc. Because we were in a motel in Trenton, she went out of her way to come all the way out to get me and take me back at the end of the day, which I really appreciated.

My mother had taken very ill and was in a nursing home since it was obvious she would never return to her house the decision to sell it was a difficult one. When I contacted Debra she came to the house and offered some tips and guidelines that would make the house more saleable. But we decided that we were still not ready to sell yet. A few months later, Debra called us and while she understood our position she wanted us to know the market was hot and that she wouldn't be doing her job if she didn't let us know. We decided to place the house on the market and as a result we had 2 offers in 3 days and finally sold the house for the full asking price with no conditions.

My nephew had recommended that we list our cottage with Debra. The first time I spoke with her, I enjoyed her outgoing and pleasant personality. She put me at ease right away. I also thought she was very thorough in giving me all of the information about what she was doing in handling the sale and that she was representing both the seller and the purchaser and I appreciated knowing that. Also, when I finally met her; we had talked on the phone many times before that, I liked her sincerity. I understood why my nephew said I'm sure you'll enjoy meeting her. Even after the sale was final, things came up that put me on edge, mostly the survey, because I thought I had done something wrong and she assured me that everything was fine. When I went to the lawyer's office, the secretary said she had done lots of extra work to get information and get things done for both the seller and the purchaser.

I was executor of my Uncle's house, so I called Re/Max in Belleville and asked for an agent. Well I got hold of Debra Tosh and was I ever glad that I did. She came over and did a complete market evaluation for me and suggested a listing and selling price that I could expect to get. She was very thorough and it included homes that had sold, were still for sale and even ones that hadn't sold and the listing had expired. It was a really big job to get the house ready to put on the market and I was in no hurry to do it. Debra was never pushy which I really appreciated. She called me every few months to see how I was doing and she even suggested someone that she knew that I could sell some old stuff to. When it was finally, listed, she was really great. She kept in constant touch with me to let me know how things were going. When the offer came in, she helped me negotiate it, so that the estate could get the best possible price. She's a really nice person and I would recommend her to anyone.

In December of 2001 we found out we were being transferred by our employer, Bank of Montreal, to Belleville. We were living and working in Sudbury at the time. The timing of our move became very urgent as our daughter was in Grade 12 at the time and we would have to ensure we were moved in time for her to start her second semester in January in Belleville. The added stress to the situation was that we had been moved from Thunder Bay to Sudbury only 18 months prior meaning this would be our teenage daughter's third high school.

Debra Tosh was recommended to us as a real estate agent for Re/Max. We contacted Debra and for a couple of weeks we corresponded by phone and email. Debra advised us to start by researching the homes available on the local Re/Max website. Then we made a arrangements to stay in Belleville in mid December to find and make an offer on a home.

Needless to say, it is a challenge to find homes listed for sale two weeks before Christmas. Debra was extremely diligent in lining up homes for us to view, with teenage daughter in tow. She devoted the whole week to us and ensured that we became familiar with the area so that we could make the best decision for our family. Debra was very astute at quickly determining what features and benefits of homes would meet our needs. What pleased us most was that Debra did not waste our time on looking at homes that we would not be interested in. It was a stressful time for our family and Debra's cheerfulness, eagerness and humour relaxed us all.

By the middle of the week we were frustrated at not finding a home that we all agreed would meet our needs no fault to Debra, but rather to the time of year we were searching. Debra found out that a house that would be perfect for us had a previous offer that fell through. She ensured that we got to view the home immediately and we were able to make a timely offer.

We were so happy to end up with a home we wanted in a great neighbourhood. Debra spent a lot of time running around for us before the final closing as we had to go back to Sudbury until the move. We trusted Debra so much by that point we asked her if she would do the final inspection on our behalf. Debra is a professional agent who knows her stuff, can read people and their needs well, and can make a stressful time a fun adventure for a family. If you want someone who puts your needs first call Debra Tosh. We are so glad that we did!

Our property on Forin Street had been listed with two other realtors over the past two years without success. In the spring of this year, Debra Tosh convinced us we had a very saleable property and that we should list with her. The rest, as they say, is history! We could not have asked for better service from Debra: she communicated to us every week on interest shown in our property, created a constant stream of attractive ads with appealing photos, provided sound advice that reflected local market trends and, most importably, through her enthusiasm, convinced us we were actually going to get a sale! We have other property locally and you may rest assured that, when we wish to sell, we'll be contacting Debra and the excellent services that she and her office provides. Thanks again Debra for a great job in challenging times!
