THE BEST DECISION I MADE IN SELLING MY PIEDMONT HOME!
The best decision I made in selling my mid-century modern Piedmont home of 48 years, was choosing Debbi and Adam as my Realtors. Throughout, they made me feel that I was their only and most important client. Debbi and Adam are a great professional team, practical, persistent, personal, thorough, responsive, and extremely successful in a very competitive profession, with good reason! They have excellent working relationships both with an extensive range of trades people, and with colleagues. They are well-respected in the community and both give back in so many generous ways. Their care is all-encompassing and they definitely know the market and will seal the best deal. There’s none better!

ADAM AND DEBBI ARE THE MOST RELIABLE AND PROFESSIONAL REAL ESTATE AGENTS WE HAD THE CHANCE TO WORK WITH!
Adam and Debbi are the most reliable and professional real estate agents we had the chance to work with! As first-time home buyers in the very competitive San Francisco Bay area, dealing with Adam and Debbi was a wonderful experience. Both of then are extremely knowledgeable and understand the local house market perfectly. Looking for a house with them was not only a fun and interesting experience but it was also educational in many ways for us as they are aware of laws and regulations about home renovations or anything related to real estate properties. On every potential purchases, they shared their in-depth analysis of the property, its location and also help us position ourselves reliably against the potential competition to get the property. Their integrity allows you to establish a strong and trustful relationship which is necessary as purchasing a house can be a stressful process in many ways. All along our experience with them, from the house touring to final closing, Adam and Debbi were always available either by phone or email and they were always ready to go the extra mile for us. Their professionalism actually went beyond the purchase of the house are they were still available and ready to help with home owner advices, and any other house related matters, which is really unique and amazing!

OUTSTANDING SERVICE FROM THE DIMAGGIO and BETTA GROUP!
We wanted to take a moment and compliment the outstanding service of the DiMaggio & Betta Group! My husband and I have worked with Debbi & Adam before and once again they were outstanding! There are a few things that really stand out when you work with them: ease of the entire process, timely responses, social media presence and anticipating your every need. As we navigated the sale of our Mother's home, it was not easy by any means. First, we had to clear out the home, and Debbi, Adam and Chase assisted us with finding the help we needed to clear the home. Next, we began staging and preparing the home. Every step of the way they had a contact or vendor to make it easy. Lastly, the sale, it was executed flawlessly from the open houses to fielding offers. DiMaggio & Betta Group ensured we got the absolute top offer and did not miss any detail during the entire process. Most of all, we appreciate the constant communication, prevalent posts to social media and how they anticipated our every need as the customer. They showed care, empathy and made us feel important as we went through the sale of a treasured family home! Bravo to Debbi, Adam & Chase...if you wants a first class Agent and a flawless real estate experience they are your team! Thanks, Jackie & Derek

DAVE LOOMIS | OAKLAND AND PIEDMONT SELLER
I have thirty years experience in the SF Bay Area owning and managing residential and commercial real estate. Additionally I have spent fifteen years in the real estate loan business as a mortgage broker, direct lender, and loan office manager for several CitiBank loan offices including Oakland, SF, Marin, Walnut Creek, and Santa Rosa. I have worked with hundreds of Realtors and seen the good and the bad while closing thousands of transactions in Piedmont, SF, Marin, Contra Costa, and South Bay markets. When it came time to list my family's home in Piedmont I interviewed several agents from three different companies and got recommendations from a neighbor who had recently sold down the street. Debbi and Adam stood out from the rest with their enthusiasm, experience, and get it done attitude. Debbi's passion for design and remodel and her experienced team of workers and stagers coupled with Adams's technical prowess are an unbeatable combination that helped us close a large transaction during a difficult time (COVID 19 bond market fiasco). Their can do spirit, expert opinions, and sense of humor kept the boat steady in a turbulent sea and we closed on time and on budget. I highly recommend them for any transaction whether listing or buying. Experience and passion and expertise! It doesn't get better than Debbi and Adam and their team.
NIMIT | TESTIMONIAL FROM THE BUYER'S AGENT
REPRESENTED THE BUYERS OF OUR LISTING AT 24 SCHOONER HILL.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with you and your team. I would be more than happy to work together in the future. You have been professional, patient, understanding, and very helpful as we worked through a couple of speed bumps during this transaction. Thank you for always being available even as you had personal priorities come your way.
Debbi lost eye sight in her right eye for 3 weeks and had surgery during COVID, but continued to assist her clients the entire time.

THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE WAS FAST, STRESS FREE AND THERE WERE NO HITCHES.
Our agents Adam Betta and Debbi DiMaggio were excellent. They not only represented us in the purchase of our home in Hiller Highlands but they sold our former home in Oakland. The whole experience was fast, stress free and there were no hitches. They know the Hiller community and the surrounding communities very well, and they understand the market. Adam and Debbi took the time to understand what our needs were and they found the right home for us.

DEBBI DIMAGGIO IS A TOP NOTCH, HIGHLY EXPERIENCED REAL ESTATE AGENT.
Debbi DiMaggio is a top notch, highly experienced real estate agent. I have known Debbi for years and she really helped me out when I was in an unpleasant situation with a realtor that I started out using to sell my parents’ home in Moraga. Once I started working with this agent, I realized that she did not have our best interest at hand. I called Debbi and asked her for advice. Debbi was very helpful and resourceful and not once did she try to sway me away from using my current agent. I realized that with her knowledge of the Bay Area real estate market along with her professionalism and outstanding marketing skills, it became a “no brainer” to have Debbi handle the sale of our family home. We found a buyer quickly, but the deal had many hurdles that often come along with selling an older home. Debbi partnered with the buyer’s agent seamlessly and the two of them handled all of the challenges with ease, consistency and teamwork. Debbie is easy to work with and will take on all of the difficult obstacles that can come up in a real estate deal for her buyers or sellers.
I assure you, that if you work with Debbi DiMaggio on the buying or selling of your home, she will help to make the deal smooth and stress-free for her clients.
KAITZ FAMILY | SELLERS
After living there for 38 years, we sold our large Piedmont family home. With the stress of moving after all those years, we needed a Realtor we could depend on to handle the sale. Debbi was the answer. She really knew the market, had excellent insights about how to market our home, and was enthusiastic and professional. It was a real pleasure working with her, and we were very happy with the results.
ELIZABETH ANDREW | BUYER
Adam and Debbi are smart, dedicated, hard working professionals - and champions of the Hiller Highlands community! They helped me secure a beautiful townhouse at an exceptional price. They drove the sale process through multiple challenging hurdles, and made sure I was set up with the best people to remodel & personalize my home to make it my own. You cannot be in better hands- in Hiller Highlands, the Bay Area, or worldwide - than you are with Debbi and Adam!

AFTER MEETING ADAM BETTA AND DEBBI DIMAGGIO OF HIGHLAND PARTNERS WE FELT CONFIDENT THAT THEY WOULD BE THE BEST REALTOR TO SELL OUR TOWNHOUSE.
My wife Donna and I have owned a townhouse in the Hiller Highlands community of Oakland for the last 8 years. We decided to sell our property and move back to New England to be closer to family and friends. Moving multiple times over the years with my company, we know how stressful it can be listing and selling a home. In selecting a real estate company, we wanted to work with a realtor that had extensive knowledge of the Hiller Highlands area plus a solid track record of listing and selling properties here. We were aware that Highland Partners had listed and sold three properties on our street in the last few months. After meeting Adam Betta and Debbi DiMaggio of Highland Partners we felt confident that they would be the best realtor to sell our townhouse. We had planned to list our townhouse in the fall so Adam recommended an initial off market strategy. Adam brought in several buyers and shortly after that we sold our townhouse for a full price cash offer.
We could not have been happier with Adam and Debbi at Highland Partners. They were professional, extremely knowledgeable, responsive and had terrific follow-up and follow through. We highly recommend them.
CHRIS KWEI | SELLER
Debbi DiMaggio of Highland Partners (now Corcoran Global Living) is hands down one of the best agents around. I had met her several times over the years at various open houses that she had listed during our home search. She was always extremely personable and professional so when it came time to try to sell a home in Montclair, we decided to interview her, along with several other agents. Debbi stood out from the rest immediately. She got right to the point and knew what she was talking about. Instead of just telling us what she thought we wanted to hear to get the listing, Debbi told us exactly what hurdles there would be in selling the house, and what we needed to do as a team to get it sold. We decided to list with her and have never regretted it. Her performance after taking the listing was what really impressed us. Many agents make a great pitch to get listings, but fall short on their marketing and communications after you have signed a contract with them. Debbi worked diligently on putting together a deal for us in a difficult market from the first day, through the closing of escrow. She never hesitated to use all the manpower and marketing dollars at her disposal to get our property sold. We honestly did not expect to get this kind of service from anyone, especially an agent of her reputation and caliber. She treated our home as she would one of her multi-million dollar Piedmont listings. Debbi always went above and beyond what was expected. She is always prompt and courteous with all her communications, and is savvy with all forms of media. She also has great people for referrals to get everything from staging, house cleaning, window cleaning, inspectors, engineers, title companies, mortgages, you name it. Debbi is truly a real estate professional that others in the industry should take note from. We have bought and sold many residential and commercial properties over the years and have dealt with countless people across all aspects of the real estate industry. It is rare that someone truly impresses, but Debbi did just that, and we would highly recommend her for any of your real estate needs in the region.
BEN FEINBAUM | SELLER
Once in every great while you meet someone who delivers excellence. For me, as I sought to sell my home in San Leandro, that person was definitely Debbi DiMaggio, who managed the sales process expertly, communicated responsively as well as proactively, negotiated with consummate skill, and, ultimately, brought about an awesome result. In my opinion, Debbi is the real deal.
MEGAN AND ZACH SMITH | LESSORS and SELLERS
YOU MADE THE PROCESS SO SEAMLESS, AND WE APPRECIATED YOUR PATIENCE!
Zach and I are very grateful to you for all that you have done to rent our house. You made the process so seamless, and we appreciated your patience, kindness and persistence. It was a joy to hang with you, Debbi! I hope you both are doing well, and please know that we are very grateful to have met and worked with you.
KATE A. CRAWFORD | SELLER
Without reservation or hesitation, I am writing to endorse Debbi DiMaggio’s outstanding skills and talent as a realtor. I speak from experience, having sold my beloved Piedmont home of 50 years this past May. The decision to do so was traumatic, and Debbi guided me through the entire process with kindness, patience and utmost professionalism. All of the details and the many tasks leading to a successful sale were handled by Debbi. I came to trust her and to rely on her to see me through the process, and the outcome was positive in every way. I hold Debbi is high esteem and recommend her to anyone contemplating the purchase or sale of a home. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

ADAM'S ADVICE WAS CLEAR AND CONCISE.
Doing business with Adam Betta was like doing business with a savvy, competent and reliable friend. He did not appear to have any agenda other than helping us buy the home we truly wanted. Adam’s advice was clear and concise, addressed both the positives and negatives of the particular circumstance we were in. Adam guided us through making offers that we felt good and genuine about. It was essentially as easy as it could be given the gravity of the transaction. We recommend Adam highly and without reservation.
GEOFF AND SECIL WATSON | BUYERS AND SELLERS
ADAM WAS TOTALLY COMMITTED TO OUR GOALS.
"Full service" does not begin to describe the contributions Adam made in selling our home and buying a new home in a challenging economic environment. Not only did he help us negotiate very favorable deals (people are still amazed), but he also helped stage our house, connected us with a contractor for a remodel, offered design solutions (and even delivered our donations to Goodwill when we were in the midst of moving!). Throughout the process, Adam was available around the clock, with his practical advice and good humor, and we felt that he was totally committed to our goals.

DEBBI CREATES FORUMS...
Debbi has helped me learn how to network effectively, not only in a small but dynamic city such as Piedmont, but to go out into the world and be confident about my passion for my work and serving people. She creates forums for people in her community and beyond to develop meaningful and sustainable relationships that not only assist the promotion of their businesses but create personal connections and nurture the concept of community, as well.
CARL CHIU | SELLER
ANYONE THAT IS LOOKING TO PUT THEIR HOME ON THE MARKET WOULD DO THEMSELVES WELL TO MEET WITH DEBBI AND ADAM.
Debbi and Adam helped me considerably with the sale of my Piedmont home. It was a major project from renovation to final sale that took many months with construction delays and challenges. As a team they worked diligently and with care throughout that time, long before the “For Sale” sign hit the curb. From assistance with finding good vendors, to working to help me with the inspection process and finding a good fit with a home stager, it made my life in selling the property something less to worry about. They simply made my life easier and they gave great ideas along the way, while even daring the construction dust! Anyone that is looking to put their home on the market would do themselves well to meet with Debbi and Adam. They have a vast collective experience of the market, and will work with you every step of the way in a straight forward, down to earth, smartly applied, but also light-hearted way that makes the experience for everyone involved work smoothly. (This home sold over the asking price with multiple offers.)
MELISSA HUML | SELLER
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND WORKING WITH DEBBI AND ADAM, AND HIGHLAND PARTNERS.
Working with Debbi and Adam was a pleasure. Their wealth of transaction experience and deep market knowledge led to a successful outcome in the sale of our house. Debbi's friendly, easy-going personality made the entire process less stressful. She is a good listener and understood our needs. Debbi's recommendations to prepare our house for sale were always practical and she had a network of professionals to help execute.
JENNIFER BIESTMAN | SELLER
Debbi and Adam are top notch! They helped me stage and sell my Oakland home quickly and with a great offer. I live far away and travel a lot, and I didn't even have to lift a finger--they did everything for me! This team is worth their weight in gold and I look forward to working with them again on my next real estate transaction.
WES & CAROLYN OGBURN | BUYERS AND SELLERS
DEBBI IS A TOP-NOTCH PROFESSIONAL WITH A LASER FOCUS.
Debbi is a top-notch professional with a laser focus on meeting the unique needs of her clients. We obtained outstanding results in a short period of time working with Debbi, despite looking in a tight, supply-constrained market in the East Bay. Debbi squeezed the most out of the inventory and showed us numerous off-market and pre-market properties. It was evident that Debbi not only knew her markets very well but was deeply connected to the entire ecosystem of agents as she received calls back very promptly and was able to source actionable intelligence quickly and easily.
The offer negotiation and typically complex closing process was a breeze with Debbi's seasoned hand - she was super responsive at all hours of the day, including weekends. She is well respected, high energy, and acts with conviction: that matters when trying to get things done away from the competitive frenzy, ahead of schedule, and under budget (all of which we did under her stewardship).
After the point of sale, Debbi continues to tirelessly serve our needs as first time homebuyers - she went above and beyond tying up the loose ends, proactively suggesting and referring us to others who could help facilitate our move and help turn our house into the dream home we've always hoped for. We continue to feel her presence and genuinely know that we have found a new friend and advocate for our new family life in the East Bay community. We would recommend Debbi to any new or seasoned home buyer/seller without hesitation.
LEN & MARY BERTAIN
SERVICE FROM DEBBI & ADAM WAS FANTASTIC
We have known Debbi since she was a little girl and have watched her progress thru the real estate business over the last 30 years. When we called her we expected to get good service but we were honestly wowed by both of them. They are professional, knowledgeable but more important than anything, they both had a sense of urgency. And I mean rapid and accurate response. I have a consulting business and try to provide rapid urgent response to my clients. And I got that and more from Debbi and Adam. I would recommend them in a second, no conditions. They are good. And we got what we wanted. Best, Len Bertain

DEBBI AND ADAM are INCREDIBLY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO US
After over 50 years of owning a family home in Piedmont, we hired Debbi and Adam to renovate and sell our family home. It was a very stressful time for all of our family due to losing our dear Mom. Our mother had interviewed Debbi several years before and we felt we were honoring her wishes by hiring Debbi and Adam. Debbi and Adam are incredibly knowledgeable and were always available via phone, text and email. They have in-depth knowledge of the Piedmont area, and a vast network of contractors. They truly take care of everything. They are a dynamic duo!
