Smith Mountain Lake Property Owners Reviews and Testimonials

“We thoroughly enjoyed working with Deb Beran on the sale of our home at Smith Mountain Lake. From the moment we first contacted her about the possibility of selling, she was responsive, knowledgeable and informative. She prepared a market analysis for our home, giving us her opinion on the value supported by comps, market trends and other data. With her years of experience and extensive knowledge of the market, we felt confident in Deb’s insights and abilities.

Once we made our decision to sell, Deb was with us every step of the way. Believe me when I say, she went above and beyond in helping us prepare the house for sale. She helped us in ways I dare say no other realtor would have! She is a treasure! Her energy, humor and positive attitude are reassuring during a stressful time. Thanks to Deb’s preparations and pre-marketing of our home, we had an offer within 48 hours of being officially on the market! She skillfully managed our contract negotiations and every situation that arose during the home inspection, appraisal and closing the deal. She was a calm voice of reason and experience that kept things moving along smoothly.

We highly recommend Deb Beran for any real estate needs anyone may have. Not only is she a lot of fun to work with, she’s also knowledgeable, resourceful and extremely responsive! She also has connections and resources for most anything you’ll be needing during the process of buying or selling a home. On a scale of 1 to 10, Deb is at the top with a 10! You can’t go wrong trusting your real estate transactions to her and her team!”

“Dear Deb,
Just want to say “Thank You” so very much for all your help and kindness. I thought of you when I saw this card. The sunflowers are bright, sunny and perky, just like you!

You were so very helpful in all aspects of the sale in both homes. The use of your truck was wonderful! Even helping unload! Charlie and I are loving all the sights and sounds. We had wild turkey come by the other day when it was snowing. We watched the full moon the other night. Charlie took pictures to show at work. He said he felt like he had been here his whole life! We are happy as can be in our cozy new “home”!

Thank You! We love it HERE!

PS: Thanks again for your gift! You are a very caring person. Happy Easter!”

– Sincerely, Janey & Charlie

“Dear Debbie,
Thank you for your generous support of The Jennifer Fund. Due to the overwhelming turnout at the golf outing and contributions, we will soon be able to dedicate a consult room in the new University of Virginia Children’s Hospital. This room will be in honor and memory of R. W. Thompson. Before Ronnie passed, he had a sparkle in his eye whenever we talked about the future of The Jennifer Fund in regards to assisting sick children and their families. He gave so much time and energy to this cause and we hope to continue to fulfill his vision.”

– Gratefully, Ginny

I’m writing a short note of thanks to you regarding the purchase of my condo at Bernard’s Landing and for the “goodie package”, we have been enjoying it. We have enjoyed our time here, and agree, once you come to the lake, it’s hard to leave!

You took the time to listen to our needs, discuss with us options and truly understand what we wanted. You have a great knowledge of the real estate marketplace in the Smith Mountain Lake area, and have developed excellent working relationships with others associated with buying and selling of real estate.
Even the simplest real estate transactions can get tense and emotional, and you gave reassurance and provided sound advice throughout the process. Also, thanks for the use of your moving van “Maxine”, it was a great help as well!

Your professionalism and responsiveness was truly valued and separates you from the average realtor and we greatly appreciate the time and energy you put into working with us. I certainly am happy to serve as a referral and would recommend you to anyone who needs the experience and expertise of an excellent real estate professional in the Smith Mountain Lake area.

Thank you again, we hope to see you around!”

– With warm regards, Brian Arnholt

“We have purchased and sold several times over the years, and working with Deb Beran has been by far the best experience we have ever had. She went above and beyond to answer questions, return calls, help with purchasing, closing, etc. We would definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone. A pleasurable and awesome experience. Thanks!”

– Brent & Tammy Fortner

“Dear Deb- We want you to know how much we all here at the Agape Center appreciate you allowing us to use your truck. What a blessing it was and you are! God Bless.”

– Betty Ann Allen, Lonnie Allen, Gordy Harper, Judy Harper

“Deb, you are the exceptional realtor in my opinion. Master of follow ups, staying in contact etc with your past and future real estate prospects. The card with “When you think you can or can’t do something, you are probably right” by Henry Ford was great. Also perfect timing as Kroger announced they are acquiring Harris Teeter here in NC. Appreciate the gift card.”

– Jeff and Jo Taylor

“We want to thank you so much for representing us in the sale of our home. You did a wonderful job in advertising and marketing, as well as counseling us so ably during the negotiation process. During these tough economic times, your optimism, enthusiasm and professionalism kept us going. Thanks again.”

– Jim and Jo Ann Harllee

“Deb was wonderful in looking into details that I would have never thought of … FEMA maps, flood plains, Smith Mountain Lake property lines, county and neighborhood bylaws and lots of other things. She went above and beyond before, during, and after our closing. A pleasure to work with!”

– Vic and Laura Goradia

“Deb is easy to work with and learned quickly what I was and was not looking for, which meant my time was being spent wisely. Also, she was extremely knowledgeable, able to answer or find the answer. Additionally, she recognized a problem with the property lines that even the lawyer had not yet discovered, so we would recommend her to anyone who is looking for Smith Mountain Lake property.”

– Betty Konchar

“Deb came to us as a highly recommended realtor and she proved her reputation was well earned. She was very professional, thorough and provided some very good advice pertaining to the mechanics involved with the negotiation and closing process. She was a pleasure to work with and would highly recommend her to the seasoned as well as a first-time buyer.”

– Verne & Marie Campbell

“Deb is a great friend and realtor! She listened to our needs, came up with several options and found the perfect house for us! We couldn’t have done it without her. She is a very personal realtor without the pressure! Thanks, Deb.”

– Phil & Betsy Gentry

“Deb is very easy to work with and very accommodating to my schedule. She is very knowledgeable about the market and in explaining any conflicts of interest that might exist. She help structure and negotiate my offer to get the best deal for me. Deb and her staff facilitated the entire buying process from offer to closing—including getting permits for septic and dock, lining up the closing agent and meeting with the developer to discuss what can be done with the lot, etc. In other words, I believe that she really earned her fee!”

– Ray and Candy Nasser

“We have worked with Deborah Beran on two Real Estate transactions. In both cases her services and attention to our needs were excellent. We feel her marketing skills are second to none at the lake and exceeded our expectations. We always felt informed and that our best interests were served. We would definitely use her again and recommend her highly.”

– Fred & Chris Tscheulin

“You did a super job for us. Your knowledge of the region and Smith Mountain Lake property value was great. Knowledge of what had to be done to satisfy county with septic, etc. was up to date. Need a REAL ESTATE AGENT – Buy or Sell – Call Deborah Beran.”

– Donald and Treva Lowe

“The fact that I have used your Realtor services twice and recommend you twice (both of which resulted in a “closure”) is about the best compliment I could give you. Best regards.”

– Ernie & Pat Staggers

“Deborah, Jane and I are very pleased to provide a reference to you. We have very much enjoyed working with you on our two transactions and hopefully a third will be in the future. You are one of the few realtors that we do not have to follow up on. Your honesty, sincerity, knowledge and professionalism have made us huge fans. Best of luck,”

– JA and Jane Savage

“Thanks again for representing me in my recent Smith Mountain Lake property transaction. Initially, your expertise was apparent when you listed and priced my home. Your advertising and marketing was unique and exceeded my expectations. Your personal investment so near to closing was invaluable and needless to say, greatly appreciated. Recommending you to others as a Realtor would come easy to me and I will pass your name along whenever the opportunity presents itself.”

– Shirley B. Smith

“The Beran & Steele Team had a level of class and professionalism that we were proud to have representing us in the sale of our property.

What I liked most was that we were treated not only as a client but also as a friend. You went the extra mile when we were looking to help us find what we wanted. It makes it such a pleasure to deal with someone as yourself.

Thanks, again.”
