Without question, the best realtor experience from beginning to end and in between with regards to procurement of the property, inspection, leveraging needed repairs and maintenance against the price, and closing the deal. I recommend her without reservation and have continued to use her for information with the dwelling even after the sale. We should all be lucky to have someone with the work ethic and honesty as Debbie Perestman.
Debbie is a dedicated, knowledgeable and reliable agent but frankly that only scratches the surface. I was moving to Charleston from out of town and she spent countless hours working with me long after the sale to identify all manners of resources who have done an amazing job on the rehab of my home. Unlike most Relators who think their job is done after the closing, Debbie is an amazing resource long after the sale. She is by far the best agent I’ve ever worked with anywhere.
Debbie is so experienced and skillful that she made the sale of my home stress-free and sold it for much higher than the comps in my area. She understands the psychology of selling and how to work with agents and prospective buyers. As a seller it was a pleasure to work with her. I would recommend her to all my friends and when my daughter sells her home Debbie will be our agent
Debbie is a delight! I wish I would have found her sooner. I started my home search with another agency. My previous relator did not seem to have the experience that i needed to help me find a home in this neighborhood. I'm so thankful that I found Debbie. She changed my home search from a stressful situation into a positive experience. She listened to my needs and aggressively searched out properties that met my vision. Although she had more profitable listings, I always felt like I was a priority. Her patience, expertise, and gusto was invaluable to my home search. Although I am very happy with my current home and have no plans to sell any time soon, I hope I will be able to work with Debbie again in the future.
As part of her listing services, Debbie, not only made recommendations on what needed to be done to sell my property quickly and for top dollar, she tended to every detail. She worked diligently renovating, decorating and staging the property. The results were amazing and my home sold in 11 days for my target price. Debbie's services as a realtor were way above any realtor I have ever known. She is by far the best I have ever worked with and I strongly recommend her.
We highly recommend Scott as a realtor. His name was given to us by someone we knew and trusted and we were not disappointed! He was extremely professional in the sale of our home (which sold within just a couple of days of being on the market!) He was also readily available and proactive with his communication. We used him to purchase a home as well and if it wasn't for him the sale would not have gone as smoothly as it did. His guidance and advice was key throughout the entire process. Thank you Scott for helping us move our family, we could not be happier!
Debbie is a breath of fresh air compared to other realtors I have worked with. She helped me buy a house last fall and worked relentlessly to find the right match. The other reviews here echo my sentiments completely, so I won't repeat them here. However, I would like to add that she put me in touch with an impressive array of creative-minded professionals who helped with every step, from inspection, to repair quotes, to financing. She and her "army" of helpers took a normally nerve-wracking process and made it actually fun and educational!
Unlike other realtors I have worked with, I felt that Debbie really cared about doing the very best job for me and making sure I maximized the value of my property. It was clear to me that she always had my best interests at heart and was not looking to do a quick transaction! Her professional demeanor, knowledge and hard work puts her at the top of the class!
Debbie Peretsman was the most knowledgeable and competent real estate broker we have ever dealt with by far! Having bought and sold many houses in the past, our experiences were varied. Debbie tuned in immediately on exactly what we wanted, making the house hunting process very efficient. She was open and honest and her enthusiasm and eagerness to go above and beyond was truly amazing. She was responsive and worked around our very busy schedules... And Always with a smile. I would highly recommend her, without any hesitation, to anyone searching for a property/house in Charleston!
Working with Scott was great! Not only did we buy our first home from him, but he also sold it for us during a very challenging time of year. We knew our home was in good hands with Scott and we confidently moved across the country while he handled everything for us. We recommend Scott to family and friends looking to buy (or sell) their home!
Focus on the details of listing and selling our home, high energy and constant contact and feedback on selling process, knowledge of market and Sullivans Island history. Aggressively represented our interest and sold home at record price per sq. foot. Job well done.
Debbie could not have been a better choice. She did her homework, reviewed the comps and came up with a price that was much higher than we even thought, but she saw the intrinsic value in our home. She didn't go literally by the number of bedrooms and baths, she looked at the whole picture. She then did everything she could do to market our house with beautiful photos, video, and write-up on the web. Our online presence was phenomenal. As a result, our house went on the market on a Wednesday and we had a contract on the following Sunday for more than the asking price. She even negotiated the same of our furnishings as a separate transaction. Debbie is not only a consummate negotiator, she is honest, forthright, and a calm voice when things go sideways which can be the case when selling a house. We could not recommend her more highly. Best realtor in Charleston and the surrounding area!
Debbie was extremely focused and responsive in her representation of the sale of my condo. She dealt with my condo management, my tenant, the seller's agents and seller, appraiser in a seamless manner. She kept me apprised of what she was doing and offered me insights into the process. Most importantly she was polite and knowledgeable to all of us involved.
Debbie is zealous, tenacious and gracious. Such a treat to work with her. She will get you exactly what you want for the price that you want and then some. I have had the extraordinary honor to know her personally a very long time and only recently had need of her professionally in her area of expertise, real estate in the Charleston area. I learned firsthand what dedication she brings to the project. Her client's best interest and investment dollars are her primary focus. You gain traction using her as a realtor to quickly eliminate properties that are not appropriate and zero in on exactly your desires and wishes for a loving, livable space. I am so excited to be a part of this community now and it would not have happened as efficiently with any other realtor. Sandy toes and salty kisses to you Debbie... thank you!
Scott helped us out with a very difficult situation selling our home, offering advice and guiding us through the process. Not only did he sell our condo but he helped us find the perfect home. I couldn't recommend Scott more highly and if we do move again he will be the first person we call!

Debbie began a search in Charleston for a condominium with our 29 year old son who moved there for his job. After several showings, she discovered a carriage house to which my wife and I immediately gravitated. The competition was serious but Debbie got our bid in place and keep the listing firm focused on our offer and closed the transaction to our satisfaction. We now have a piece of history in quiet Ansonborough, and our son is in the heartbeat of the French Quarter of Charleston.
I was fortunate to work with Debbie Peretsman to find a condo in Charleston, South Carolina. I mapped out specifics with Debbie so that both of us wouldn't waste our time. She knows the area very well and is completely focused on client needs. She is aggressive and a tedious worker. You could hear from her on a holiday and its all business. I remember hearing from her on Christmas Day about an issue. No problem from me! I worked one complete day with Debbie from early morning to evening looking at 14 different properties that fit my criteria. The 13th condo visit proved to be the one that I wanted. We talked about price and she worked hard for me to put the deal together. Seller agreed and then Debbie put all the paperwork together for a quick closing. Mortgage was in place and Debbie handled the inspection and was excellent with detail. I has no reservations recommending Debbie Peretsman to handle any real estate transaction. She is the ultimate professional, intelligent, smart, has a good sense of humor and works hard for her client(s). I will use her again and am very confident she will work hard to exceed my expectations.
My wife and I were determined to find a town house or condominium in the Charleston, SC area as a second home. Having looked at pictures and vague emails for about a year from other real estate professionals, who didn't seem to want to give us l00% effort, we were referred to Debbie Peretsman of Handsome Properties. She was given the task to meet the criteria set by us in a timely manner. We found her to be very professional, hardworking, and results oriented. All we were looking for was a professional who understood our objectives and not inundate us with time wasting ideas. After a few months of hard work and a quick visit to Charleston, being about 1700 miles away, a short list was created and the property was located. Debbie Peretsman far exceeded our expectations and worked at closing the deal and continued to get us through the closing, without any problems. We thank you Debbie, for your outstanding job and making our purchase anxiety free. I would highly recommend Debbie Peretsman of Handsome Properties to anyone looking for a real estate professional committed to her clients.
Debbie Peretsman handled the process with outstanding professionalism. Her insight into buying the carriage house was very accurate and timely. The services she rendered to close the contract were outstanding. We highly recommend Debbie Peretsman for real estate services in this unique and magnificent Charleston market.
Debbie has everything you look for in a real estate partner. She is incredibly knowledgeable, energetic and a great communicator. She is a complete joy to work with! She shows the utmost professionalism in handling all aspects of the process. Debbie will go above and beyond to answer all your questions and concerns. I have complete confidence in Debbie and her skills to represent us buying and selling.
Debbie did an excellent job in showing us property based on our criteria, orienting us in the area and ultimately helping us through the purchasing process. Having to make our selection based on coming to the state over 3 separate trips, Debbie was very organized and helped make efficient days. I would highly recommend Debbie again.
If you are looking to buy or sell your home in Charleston, I would highly recommend Debbie Peretsman! Her knowledge of the area and her professionalism are unbeatable. She is quick to respond and will not stop until you are happy! She is not only a fabulous real estate agent, but also a wonderful and genuine person. You cannot go wrong choosing Debbie as your real estate professional!
Debbie was extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the local market and using that to exceed my expectations. She was very attentive to listening to what I wanted and not trying to sell only what she had in her portfolio. When it came time to do due diligence and inspections she was very proactive to insure the property was fully vetted and acceptable and where it was not, negotiating on my behalf to make sure things were corrected and acceptable. She worked very hard and went above and beyond in all respects and was an advocate I could trust to look out for my best interest. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to find their next home, you will not be disappointed.
I came to Charleston with the thoughts of finding a property to purchase as a rental and eventually retire to. I found Debbie to be exceptionally well versed in the markets around Charleston with a clear understanding of what I was looking for. She seemed extremely knowledgeable about the market, the sellers, and the process of executing a 1031. Her attention to details and eagerness, without being pushy, to craft approaches to executing offers was impressive. She is very personable and easy to work with and has a passion for the area in which she works. Unfortunately, I opted to invest closer to where I currently live for personal reasons, but I cannot recommend Ms. Peretsman strongly enough. If I ever reconsider investing in Charleston, she will be the one that I call.
Debbie was great. She was very energetic, very responsive and ready at a moments notice. She took the time to get to know us and understand our needs and wants. She was willing to fight for us and was really part of our team. She stayed with us through the entire process from offer to closing. We highly recommend Debbie.
