Always Available, Returned Calls and Emails Immediately

Salvador has been great since day 1! He was recommended to us by a good friend, whom he helped buy 2 properties. As first time home buyers, we really did not have any experience in what to look for and/ or consider when buying a home, but I am glad we had him by our side to answer all of our questions and concerns. He was always available for us whenever we wanted to see a property, and answered our calls and emails immediately. We will definitely be working with him in the future and would recommend him to anyone looking for a great house hunting experience!

Debbie has been an absolute pleasure to work with! This was our first home buying experience, and we feel so lucky that we had Debbie to help us through it. Before we found Debbie, we knew we wanted someone that had experience with VA home loans. During our search for realtors, we found Debbie and, after reading countless reviews, we knew we wanted to work with her. From our first chat over the phone, she was so easy to talk to, but she was never pushy that we needed to work with her. However, we quickly knew we didn't want to work with anyone else. She has always been quick to respond to us whether via text, email, or a phone call. She was always flexible and accommodating. Even when we felt needy at times, she never made us feel that we were. As first time home buyers, she helped us feel knowledgeable throughout the entire process and has been there to guide us every step of the way. Whether helping us with our best offer, coaching us through the inspection, or offering recommendations for local businesses to help us with moving related things, Debbie has always supported us. Debbie is more than a realtor; she truly cares about helping her clients find the perfect home, and we wouldn't have found ours without her help!

Helpful, Experienced!

We have worked with Debbie for years. When we bought our home 25 years ago, Debbie was our realtor. We worked together on some occasional shopping over the years and when it came time to finally sell our home, we knew who we wanted to work with. Debbie’s help and expertise were great during the sale, which had a few interesting twists and turns, but we were able to complete the sale to everyone’s satisfaction. If you are looking to buy or sell a home, I would not hesitate to recommend Debbie and Arriero Realty!

Debbie sold my home within 30 days! She coached me through the entire process and provided the clarity and detail that I needed to make the right decisions. She helped me purchase my house many years ago and then helped me sell it when I was ready to move on. She provided consistent support and current market information during this journey; and when it was time to close the deal, she was responsive, thorough and always on point. Outstanding customer service!! Thank you Debbie!!

After Debbie helped me purchase my current home 4 years ago, I rented out my old townhouse. Knowing that I eventually wanted to sell it, Debbie would periodically email me information regarding other homes selling near my townhouse, so when I was ready to sell, it was a no-brainer to contact Debbie. She has the expertise and calm demeanor to make this anxiety-inducing experience less so. She guided me through the process from pricing it perfectly, to listing it (it sold in a couple of days), to closing – all the while available to answer any questions I had. It is a pleasure to work with her. I highly recommend her for your real estate needs.

NOW, 2017 - Realtor for Life!

Debbie helped me when I purchased my townhouse 20 years ago, as well as the sale of the house I had at that time. She then helped me sell the townhouse; closing was just yesterday! She told me the sale would be quick, little did either of us anticipate that we would have 10 offers in 2 days! During the 20 years Debbie has kept me informed of the sales in my area as well as interesting possibilities for other properties. In other words, Debbie isn't just your one time realtor; she's your realtor for life!
Thanks Debbie; I have enjoyed working with and knowing you all these years!

Valuable, Best Sales Price

Debbie was every bit as valuable when it came to helping me sell my first home as she was when she was helping me buy it a few years back!

Even before we listed the home, she was already offering me sage advice, such as suggesting I hire a professional cleaner as well as steam-cleaner before we listed it on the market. She carefully looked at the comps to make sure I had the best/most reasonable list price possible and then, when the buyer came to us with a low offer, she held strong through the negotiation process, helping me to get the best sales price possible.

The home ended up selling in 15 days!

The home selling process can definitely be an emotional time. But with Debbie's market expertise, professionalism and confidence, the process was so much easier. I would recommend working with her when you're ready to sell your own home.

She demonstrated exceptional knowledge of the market including familiarity with types of homes ...More Debbie's Military Relocation Professional certification attracted us to seek her services for our family's move from Virginia to Charlotte. She demonstrated exceptional knowledge of the market including familiarity with types of homes ranging from new construction (building from scratch) to those built in the 1950 - 1960's as well as a wide swath of the area from South Charlotte eastward to Ballantyne and Matthews. Debbie's flexibility was outstanding as our requirements and preferences for location and price changed within a narrow set of search criteria, e.g., master on main. She was adept at navigating the home purchase process with our lender, the Seller's Agent, real estate attorneys and a bevy of subject matter experts (home inspector, structural engineer, general contractor, etc.) who she knew that assured us that all in our new (built 1998) house was in order. Very simply, we are grateful to Debbie for the support she provided to us throughout our transition from Virginia to Charlotte. Debbie, Thank you!

Debbie was excellent. I would use her again and I would recommend her to everyone that needed a realtor. We were on the same page throughout the whole process. We had an issue with our porch and she was on top of the situation. Everyone said the only problem was electrical. Debbie found out we needed a structural engineer to come and see the house. She had some names, and it turned out she was right. She also found out that the Electrical Engineer that was selected by someone other than Debbie and myself, had a violation. She came to take pictures which turned out really well. The flyers looked really nice and Debbie kept the box and the house stocked with what we needed.

VA Knowledge and Experience, Always Accessible

My wife and I decided to purchase our first home back in December and wanted to make sure we reached out to someone with VA knowledge and experience. After some research in the Charlotte area we came across Debbie and Arriero Realty and we're glad we made the appointment. Debbie was upfront, always accessible, made sure we were aware of everything that was going on, and was extremely helpful in making sure our money was well spent. Being our first home we were obviously very inquisitive and she was always ready with the answers we needed. From answering questions to making area recommendations, and non-recs, the experience was smooth. Even after many different house visits and even two offers that fell through she was still determined to help us find the right place. Finally on March 6th we closed on a wonderful house in a great neighborhood and couldn't be happier.

If only all the moving and house work could be done in the blink of an eye and a snap of the finger. Only in our dreams.

We had an incredible experience working with Debbie Arriero in selling our home. Debbie's expertise in the South Charlotte market was extremely helpful in getting our house sold within 2 weeks (after getting very difficult renters moved out). Since we were living out-of-state, Debbie's willingness to help us attend to all the details to wrap up the sale was tremendously helpful. She lined up reasonable contractors to do repair work as per the inspection, worked with the potential buyers and their realtor with skill, as well as keeping everyone on an accurate timeline. We highly recommend Arriero Realty, Inc. for your real estate needs.

Debbie Arriero was the listing agent on our current home and our buyers' agent for our new home. Fantastic! Debbie is responsive, honest, knowledgeable and has a delightful personality. She knows what she's doing in the real estate world and successfully navigated us through selling our house in under 48 hours, finding a new home, recommending a competent mortgage lender, the inspection process and what would and/or would not work while trying to negotiate on both sides of the real estate transaction (selling and buying). Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Debbie and her team @ Arriero Realty.

Debbie is the best!! I moved from Texas to Charlotte this summer, and had some very specific needs for a new home. I tried two different realtors, for one day each, before finding Debbie. The first didn't know anything about the south Charlotte area, and the second sent an email that made me feel like we were a pain in the butt, which turned me off right away. I'm so glad I kept looking, and didn't settle!

Debbie was helpful, patient, and knowledgeable about the south Charlotte/Matthews area, even going so far as warn me about apartment complexes that were slated to be built in certain areas, and giving me a tour of downtown Matthews to see local amenities. I felt so much more prepared with Debbie by my side, and she never made me feel like a pain for wanting to see multiple houses, or the same house more than once. She was accessible by phone, email, and text, and was quick to respond every time.

Wholeheartedly recommended!!

Debbie Arriero came highly recommended from a friend, and I am beyond glad to have taken this recommendation. Debbie is a truly dedicated professional. I really can't say enough positive things about her! She has gone "above and beyond" many times for us. Debbie will calmly and persistently work on a problem until it is completely solved--nothing slows her down...or even phases her! I always felt confident that she was doing what needed to be done. She moves quickly to get things accomplished--she is up and sending e-mails and texts long before the sun comes up!

We had a very good experience with Arriero Realty in selling our home in Charlotte. It was a long distance sale and, therefore, required more paperwork and document e-mails and phone calls. Debbie answered all our questions and it was a very smooth experience from beginning to end. We would highly recommend this company.

Great Experience, Extremely Helpful, Best Interest

Debbie was extremely helpful in being with us every step of the process from the ton of paper work to voluntarily spending half a day with us in choosing upgrades and colors at the builder's showroom. She always kept our best interest first in all negociations regardless of her business relationship with the parties involved. She was referred to us by my sister-in-law who had the same great experience using Debbie as a realtor in the purchase of her new home also.

Pros, Numerous Sales

Debbie was my first choice for a real estate agent when I decided to sell. I have known about her agency for
years because of all the sales she has made just in our neighborhood alone. She and her husband are pros and
Debbie was very helpful with my sale. We had a contract in 3 days and the whole process was problem free. I
have and will continue to recommend Debbie to anyone in wanting to sell or buy a home.

Debbie was a huge help to my husband and I with the purchase of our first home. She took us to a house that had only been on the market for one day and that was the house my husband and I fell in love with. Debbie explained how the buying process went and gave us some pointers to convince the sellers my husband and I were the ones for the house! She is not only a great realtor I also consider her a good friend and I know if I need anything she will not hesitate to help.

Knowledgeable, Concise, Devoted

Debbie has been a godsend! Debbie has been a dream to work with! She's knowledgeable, concise and devoted to her clients.  There is no other agent that I will ever refer my friends and family to. She handles business like no other! I am so impressed! As a former RE agent and new home sales manager from Georgia, I thought I could go it alone and find my own home. Well, Debbie surely schooled us on the ins and outs in NC! Very different... So glad we connected with her! Debbie gave us more information than 3 other RE agents we had conversed with before. They talked - Debbie delivered! Enough said!

She handled the coordination between contractors, home inspectors, agents, surveyors and the closing attorneys like magic! I could not believe the level of care she took on our behalf!  If you want an experienced RE guru that is technologically savvy and devoted agent - you've gotta call Debbie Arriero! She's the one!

Knowledgeable, Professional, Available, Reponsive

Debbie Arriero was great: knowledgeable, professional, available, and responsive, and with me every step of the way. She is a texting maniac - so, be prepared! Initially, I was going to sell my townhouse and buy a new house, but later decided to retain the townhouse and purchase another property. Debbie didn't bat an eye and from then on focused on finding the right house for me to move in to. Debbie is also a great adviser and advocate and helped me navigate the whole home purchasing rigmarole from financing, to closing, to managing some after-closing issues with the sellers which required her to work with the sellers’ real estate agent until the matter was resolved to my satisfaction. 

All in all, working with Debbie was a very positive experience and I love my new home. I wholeheartedly recommend Debbie’s services to anyone wanting to sell or purchase a home.

Quick Action, Great Throughout the Whole Process

Debbie was recommended to me by a friend who had just purchased her first house. Debbie was great from the start. We had a great phone conversation talking about what I was looking for and could afford. She set me up on websites to look to see what was available and then followed up a few days later to set up an appointment to visit some of those places. She was great throughout the whole process - recommending, but not pushing, different companies and vendors to use for mortgages, inspections, etc. After doing my own research, I did use her recommendations - they ended up being at the top of my list, too! The market in my price range and neighborhood was moving so quickly, we essentially put in a verbal offer at 6 o'clock at night after viewing my now house. If it wasn't for Debbie's quick reaction and her past relationship with the seller's agent, I'm not sure my offer would've been accepted so quickly. Debbie always made sure to keep me apprised of what what was going on and anything that needed special attention. She was the perfect agent for me! Totally will recommend her to friends who are looking to buy or sell their house. Work Completed Date:June 18, 2013; Hire Again: Yes; Description Of Work: Helped me buy my first house.

They were very personable and knowledgeable. For being a first time home buyer it was wonderful to have someone that could answer most of your questions quickly.

Patient, Dedicated, Flexible and Resilient

Debbie's been truly terriffic! Being a transplant to the area, we chose Debbie because she worked with us long before we were even in the area; kept in touch with us, even though she had no expectation of us moving here. Once we were here, choosing her as our Realtor was one of the best decisions we made. She helped us find the right neighborhoods to search, and worked patiently with us through a difficult purchase. We've been in the home for almost a year and have no regrets. Her dedication, flexibility and resilience made our move as pleasant as possible. As we complete the second purchase with her in less than a year(more family coming to the area), she's again shown us why we so enjoy working with her. We trust her implicity, and would strongly recommend her services!

Never Gave up Looking, Knowledgeable, Thorough, Trustworthy, Honest

Debbie was recommended to me by a family member. We started this journey over a year ago. I am a first time home buyer who was very particular about what I wanted and on a tight budget. Debbie took me to about 40 homes until I found the home I wanted. She never gave up looking for the right home for me. Once we made an offer, she guided me through the entire process, from negotiating to closing. Nothing fell through the cracks. She is a very knowledgeable of the Charlotte real estate market, thorough, and trustworthy. She will always be honest with you. I will use Debbie again and recommend her to any person in need of a great Realtor.

Always Willing to Assist, Extremely Professional

We hired Debbie Arriero to help sell our first home. That was 17 years ago and she has kept in touch with us ever since, providing home sales statistics to us for our current neighborhood, checking in to see how we are, and letting us know that she is always willing to assist us should the need arise. Debbie is extremely professional and she does what she says she is going to do; something you don't always find when you enter into a business relationship with someone. We plan to stay in our home a while longer, but if that ever changes, we would certainly call Debbie.
Member Comments: It went great! We put our house on the market and two days later had a full price offer. I don't think it gets much better than that. Debbie handled all of the paperwork, let us know what to expect, and the entire closing went smoothly.

High Integrity, Responsible, Knowledgeable

I am writing to provide my highest recommendation for Ms. Debbie Arriero. Debbie has always displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility and knowledge pertaining to the Charlotte NC housing market. Debbie is also a dependable individual that provided my family with direct guidance in locating our first home in Matthews, North Carolina. Her good judgment enabled us to purchase a home in a desirable family friendly residential community with access to three wonderful schools: Matthews Elementary School, Crestadale Middle School and David W. Butler High School. Debbie has proved to me that she is focused & driven yet tempered by experience. Debbie will provide a very critical ingredient to any organization.

Dependable, Timely, Thorough

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Debbie Arriero for personal real estate services. I have worked with Debbie Arriero for all residential real estate services I’ve needed in the Charlotte area. I first worked with Debbie Arriero in 1996 to sell my first home, a condo in Southeast Charlotte as well as purchase my first single family home. Approximately three years later after purchasing the single family home, I was relocated out of state. Of course, I called Debbie and she listed and sold that home for me within the three month window of the ninety day bonus period! Eight years later I moved back to Charlotte, NC and of course I called Debbie without hesitation.

I continue to use Debbie Arriero for residential real estate services because I continue to receive excellent service. She is dependable, timely, and extremely thorough. She is knowledgeable of all aspects of the Charlotte residential real estate market. She knows other agents and their reputations for pricing homes and their negotiation style, as well as mortgage lenders and a variety of inspectors.  Likewise, she knows how to evaluate various aspects of the home that I, as a buyer, did not know to evaluate. Additionally, Debbie is insightful of the buyer’s style. Over the years my home requirements have modified with my life changes yet Debbie always knows what houses I will like and those I will not like. I feel comfortable having Debbie review listings before I do and trust her judgment completely.

An example of Debbie’s thoroughness was she noticed something on the closing documents that was incorrect. Her noticing an error that I missed saved me several hundred dollars.

If you are looking for a knowledgeable real estate agent who knows “her stuff” and willing to take charge then Debbie Arriero’s is a perfect selection. Although, I hope this is my last home purchase, I would not hesitate to use Debbie again should the opportunity arise. My motto is “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it”.   As a result, I always go back to Debbie Arriero without considering alternatives!

I would definitely use Debbie again.

I've had an amazing experience working with Debbie Arriero. I'm a first time home-buyer who knew little to nothing about the process when I first contacted Debbie. She was very clear in explaining how the process worked, was always available to answer questions, and has the experience and knowledge I relied on to make the important decisions (especially when she helped me avoid the bad decisions). There was never a question she didn't answer. She also worked with me as I had numerous scheduling issues due to serving in the reserves. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor. I wouldn't have made it without her. You're awesome Debbie! Thank you so much for everything!

The Best

We have dealt with Debbie on two separate sales. Initially Debbie helped us purchase a town house in Charlotte. We were very happy with the purchase but after seven or so years we decided we wanted a larger yard, we were so happy with Debbie we asked for her help with this project. Within ten days she had a list of showings, we drove from New York, looked at her recommendations and found the perfect home. Even with the long distance the experience was terrific. She's the BEST.

"Up Front and Honest"

Being a first time home buyer, I just want everyone to know what a pleasure it was to work with Debbie. Our first trip out looking at house we had 10 to look at and needless to say Debbie had picked out a New Home for me that she thought would have everything I was looking for in a home.

She was up front and honest with me about house we looked and and told me pro's and con's on some of the homes. I just want everyone to know if you are looking for a Realtor give Debbie Arriero a call, I know you will be very satisfied with her work and knowledge.

I have worked with Debbie and Salvador for over 20 years. They have grown with me in the real estate areas as my own changes have taken place.

They are just always there to walk you through every process of buying or selling. They listen to your needs and wants, and am able to exceed in all areas.

I highly recommend their services, they are dependable, honest and very hard working for the best for their clients. I expressed to Debbie to feel free to give to new clients, that if they need a live personal reference to give my number out.  I am very grateful to have found them.

Knowledgeable, Professional, Trustworthy

Around August of 1995, I contacted Debbie to assist me in finding and purchasing a condominium.  After meeting with me in my home at the time (to get a good understanding of the furniture that needed to fit in the new place), and showing me two or three units, she quickly understood my real estate needs and which features were important to me.  About a month, or so, later during which she kept in constant touch with me, she called me  -- she had found the ideal place.  I made an offer that same afternoon, and another month later, we closed.

Debbie was knowledgeable of the market, professional, trustworthy, and she assisted me every step of the process.

That was almost 16 years ago, and at that time, Debbie was still working as an independent realtor for Re-Max.  She has stayed in touch throughout the years, updating me on the market situation in my community, recent listings and sales, and real estate issues in general.  Most recently, I needed to have a commercial piece of real estate appraised, and Debbie was able to refer me to a commercial appraisor who in turn provided me with excellent service as well.  

Should I be in need of a residential realtor, I would not hesitate to call on the Ariero Team. Lydia, D., 1995

"With me Every Step of the Way"

Debbie Arriero was my real estate agent when I relocated to the Charlotte area after retiring from my job in N.J.  She followed me through the entire process from start to finish.  I had even thought I found the home I wanted to buy, but she convinced me to look around further, and I found the absolutely best property for my needs.  She returned my calls promptly whenever I had questions, and she even emailed me pictures of my house being built while I was still living in another state.  I would definitely use Arriero Realty if I were to sell my home or to buy a new property, and would recommend them to anyone looking for an agent.  They were with me every step of the way!

We used Arriero Realty for our house purchase last year. Debbie was very professional in providing the service during the house hunting process. We saw probably more than 30 houses in four months. She always provided us detailed information about each house. She was also very helpful in negotiating with the seller on behalf of us and in the closing process. Even more than a year after closing, when she knew that we still have unsettled issues with the seller/builder, she came the next day to take pictures, and she helped us to talk to the seller/builder to successfully solve these issues.

Awesome, Knowledgeable, Patient

Debbie is awesome!! If what you're looking for is a real estate professional with broad knowledge coupled with tons of experience, then she's the one. The only one. We were frustrated with our previous realtor when trying to sell our house in the Ballantyne area. We had very little activity on it so when that contract expired, we decided to look for a new realtor. That's when we found Debbie. She was patient and gave us great advice on what we had to do in order to help her get it sold. It worked. If I ever buy or sell another property, it'll be with her.  Shelby A., 2011

Wonderful, The Best

We bought our very first home with Debbie's help in 1998. We were new at this and had lot of questions & concerns. Debbie was wonderful throughout the process treated us as if we were in every way her customer from start to finish. More so Debbie has treated us like a friend and has been there for us since 1998. No wonder when we were ready for new home in 2010 , Debbie was there for us even after lapse of 12 years. She got us a great deal on a brand new home with nice upgrades. Debbie you are the best! You will be our agent whenever we buy or sell.  Ajay Chudgar, 2010

We were very pleased in this "downmarket" with Debbie's ability to help us secure a buyer even with the buyer's difficulties in the delays and paperwork that almost lost the sale. She did a remarkable job! My wife and I are very pleased. T.C. Bowden, May 2011

Savvy, Dedicated!

Ms. Arriero and my family first met in 1994, when she was instrumental in selling a home for us in record time. We needed to move due to a job loss and she pegged the market perfectly. The house sold in days for a very good price. She was equally adept at finding a new development that was in our new price range and under construction. We bought and built that home and lived in it from late 1994 until early 2011.

Not forgetting her expertise, my wife and I called on her again in 2010 to help us sell THAT home so we could move to Pennsylvania to be with our daughter and her husband after they made a corporate move. As anyone should know, the housing market is/was horrible and we expected to "take a bath". Once again, Ms. Arriero (OK, she's Debbie to us - that's how we know her) priced our house "dead on" and, to our surprise, in nine days after listing, we sold the house for well above what we expected the market would bear.

I hope we don't have to move again. Debbie is not in PA!

You want a savvy, dedicated agent? Call Debbie!
