“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.”
“When someone goes above and beyond to make sure everyone of your real estate transactions close, it speaks volumes to their dependability and their credibility. Miss Debbie Gallimore of Gallimore and Associates has always exceeded my expectations with every deal that we have done together. I met Miss Gallimore at the request of her mentor. She asked me what kind of deals that I had an interest in doing. Within a few days Ms. Gallimore brought me a deal to purchase 57 building lots. Within 30 days we closed that deal. That transaction started an incredible business relationship that has spanned three years. She has a gift when it comes to bringing the right deal to the right people. Presently she is helping me with the leasing of my 33,000 square foot office building. I am totally amazed and very well pleased with all that she has done to lease this space.”
“I have worked with many real estate agents over the years, buying six homes and selling five. Debbie is an exceptional agent, the best I have ever encountered. I’m impressed with her professionalism, knowledge, honesty, and work ethic. Debbie is very dedicated to her clients, always promptly responding to every call, email, or text. Her expertise and advice were invaluable, from the listing with outstanding photos, video, and home description, through the offer and negotiations, to a smooth and timely closing. Overall, I’ve had a great experience and highly recommend Debbie and her entire team of professionals. Gallimore & Associates surpassed all of my expectations and they were a joy to work with!”
