“In the time I've been working with Debbie since 2016, I have been more than pleased with the properties she has located for me as an investor. To have someone who understands your investment needs and puts forth the effort and sheer will to get the job done is a rarity. That's why four years later she's currently my Realtor. That relationship in itself is beyond valuable.”
“From 2017 to 2019, Everything Hemp Store tasked Debbie Gallimore with a daunting mission: introduce landlords in North Carolina to a new concept store selling Hemp products. From developing the strategy to educating landlords about Hemp, the criteria for store siting, to successfully negotiating difficult leases, Debbie surpassed our expectations. She is as resourceful as she is determined. I highly endorse Debbie and her firm.”
