Deb took over a listing that had not moved for us. She explained her internet strategy to draw in the right buyers, and had our property sold shortly. Deb is a real professional, and you will be pleased and satisfied to work with her.

Deb had two buyers for our house in Marstons Mills just a few days after it went on the market -- at our asking price which was pretty aggressive. This was before the housing crash, so the speed at which we sold the house wasn't so much what impressed us, as Deb's quick understanding of whichbuyer was most likely to win bank financing.(We guessed wrong -- but she didn't.) We also were impressed with her very, very skilled ability to negotiate, keep buyer and seller both happy in the process, and bring the sale to a successful and stress-free closing.

When my parents decided to sell their house in West Falmouth a few years later, they decided to hire Deb as well, based on our experience. The market was not quite as hot as it had been when we sold our house. But again Deb quickly found a buyer and masterfully brought the sale to a close, expertly overcoming bumps in the road that I suspect would have stymied less experienced agents.

Deb has handled several real estate transactions for me. She is extremely professional with good advice. Understands the client needs as buyer or seller. She is a dedicated volunteer in the local community serving on various boards and organizations.

Deb was very helpful in every detail of selling our home, from finding someone to do yard work, to all the negotiating with the buyers. She always responded right away when we had a question and found answers for everything. I highly recommend her!

Deb helped us find an affordable home on Cape Cod. It was not an easy task and I appreciated her positive, persistent attitude. After looking unsuccessfully for weeks she found a new listing which fit us well.




We used Deb as our agent on three different occasions. She handled the sale of two houses and our latest purchase (2010). She is very knowledgeble about Cape Cod, listened carefully to our wishes, always returned calls promptly, and always selected homes for viewing that were within our financialguidelines and met our location and physical requirements. She also provided quality references of local contractors to assist us with any inspections, improvements/and or/questions we might have regarding the property. We would highly recommend her, and would use her again for any real estate transaction that we might have.

I would HIGHLY recommend Deborah Schilling of RE/MAX Classic. Deb was an absolute gem to work with! I was most impressed with her professionalism and overall knowledge of the market, as well as her ability to really market our home and drive showings.

I feel Deb did an excellent job ofbalancing her marketing efforts by utilizing both print and online initiatives, as well as leveraged her reach with other agents to drive additional buyer interest. This combination really drove showings and led to the quick sale of our home.

I was extremely impressed with the quality of the photos that were taken, as well as the video (virtual tour) of our home that she did. I feel this really added to the home’s marketing appeal and got people though the door… It was really wonderful.

One other component, which I feel is a vital element, is communication and feedback. Deb kept in close contact and informed every step of the way, and gave great feedback after each showing. Once we accepted an offer, Deb worked very closely with us on all the pre-closing details - which made that process seamless and much less stressful.

It was a true pleasure working with Deb on the sale of our home!




I recommend Deborah Schilling highly. She handled the sale of my Cape Cod condo, an odd property with a small, distinctive niche. Deb understood the property, identified the market, and prepared a perfect listing. Her photography tells the story of each property. Video further enhances herdeions.

Deb found unique ways to highlight my condo, including two feature articles, one on-Cape and one in the Boston area. She is an expert marketer. My oddball condo, more expensive than others of its size, sold faster than cheaper units on the market at the same time.

Throughout the process Deb's communication was extraordinary. If I had a question she had a prompt, clear, insightful answer. I could not have asked for better, especially during the moments when the pressure got to me.

I've worked with other realtors. Deb Schilling is the best.Wish I could move her to my new state to help me buy here!




We had a fantastic experience with Deb and would highly recommend her to friends and family. She was professional and very knowledgeable about the Cape Cod area as well as really caring about what we were looking for in a home. She was wonderful to work with and responsive to our requests andschedules. Deb was committed to us and our needs. She was not only concerned about the sale of the house, but also in the area and neighborhood that would be a good fit for our family. She navigated us through the sale of the house in a seamless way and was a great resource for other professionals in the area. Deb took her time, energy, and interest and not only helped us buy a house but a home that will be filled with lots of laughter and memories in years to come.




We had a great home buying experience with Deb Schilling. We bought a modest Cape cottage and she treated us like we were buying a multi-million dollar home. It was a complicated process because we were 1st time home buyers, we are long distance and we bought a rehab from a developer. Debheld our hands through the whole process and made it feel easy. She even took pictures of the rehab progress when we could not get to the Cape to see it. Her level of service really blew us away. She helped with everything from securing the mortgage to the cheapest place to get some temporary window treatment so we could stay in our brand new house. She answered our every question, no matter how small or silly, quickly and thoughtfully. We consider her amongst our friends on the Cape now.




We had a wonderful experience with Deb! She helped us through each step of the process and explained each step to us. Her knowledge of the community was extremely helpful as we began to plan our transition to our new community. Deb's responsiveness was superior! We found our home online whereDeb had fabulous photos and a video tour of our home. We were able to find a property that fit our family and plans for the future

Deb was fabulous to work with! She knows the market, understands quality and beautiful construction when she sees it, communicates with frankness AND kindness, and works above and beyond to see things through to a successful deal completion. Our house was very special in terms of design andconstruction, and Deb took it on with expertise and appreciation for it's unique place in the market. Just as importantly, she communicated beautifully with my very elderly parents (owners of the home) and my three siblings and I, all of whom live out of state, as we tried to help my parents negotiate this transition. We are so grateful to Deb, and so happy that the family that bought our house are loving it as much as we do!

We feel Deb Schilling is so far above the norm in real estate agents, she should be the professor for all agents to acquire their licenses. After first interviewing with 4 other realtors and listing with one of them, only to have the sale fall through the week before our move, it was like nightand day to deal with Deb who was then justifiably highly recommended to us. Deborah doesn't work for you, she works with you. She covered us in every phase of being absentee landowners. She is highly motivated, very aggressive and demonstrated to us many times she will do whatever it takes to make it happen with integrity and honesty. Few can match her ability: she is better than the best.

Deborah kept our busy family on track while we we sold our former home and relocated to Cape Cod. She was ready for any challenge and had a wonderfully positive attitude.

Matt Lally



Deb Schilling is an amazing agent! In every detail she was a professional. She was thorough, knowledgeable, and personable. The sale of our home was long and arduous, but Deb was right there with us through all the ups and downs of that sale which took over a year. Through all that time sheremained consistent in her attention to us as customers. She was also helpful in answering any concern we had, even directing us to a great attorney. I would say that one of the main things I appreciated the most was her communication with us. If we emailed her or called her we NEVER had to do it twice. She would always get back to us right away. We often felt like we were her only concern and that no one else mattered but us as customers. I know we were not her only customers because the fact is she is extremely successful and now I know why. If you are looking to buy or sell your home and you want the best, then I would definitely recommend Deb Schilling.

Thank you for your professional way in which you handled the sale of my home in Cotuit. From the advertising, showing, advice, pricing and closing your expertise and integrity was apparent. For all your support, above and beyond business– Thank you and Tina and Mary!

Abby Wales



How can I ever thank you for the outstanding job you did selling my home. Your attention to every minute detail certainly gave peace of mind. I particularly liked the way you anticipated problems before they happened and hopefully avoided. It was a pleasure working with you and you can rest assured if the occasion arises, I will be more than happy to work with you again.

Barbara Fruzzetti



Just a short note to tell you how much we appreciated all your kindness and consideration over the brief time we had together while you were showing our home in Osterville. I feel I can call you Deborah, as you also became a caring friend and patient one, understanding always how difficult a time this is for the seller.

Roy and Lorraine Jones



At last! A real estate who is a pleasure to deal with! Because of our convenient location south of 28, we thought we could easily sell our home on our own. We really deliberated using the services of a real estate agent. My initial contact with you was to receive basic information on market conditions, pricing and timing. You immediately took charge of the situation, and with your knowledge of current market conditions enabled us to be in the "right spot at the right time.” You and your office were always in touch with us for any developments in selling our residence. We appreciated the individual attention you gave us, from the initial interview to the closing. We will highly recommend you to all our friends and neighbors! We are glad we teamed up with you.

Edward & Lauren Wysocki



I want to thank you selling our lot at Ballymeade. I appreciate all of your effort and expense you put into the listing. I am so very glad it sold when it did. I know we were both about to throw our hands up. We have continued to have good experiences with RE/MAX brokers. Thank you again.

Linda Zust



The moment I met you I know you’d sell the West Barnstable property...and you did! Your professionalism, poise, sincerity and friendliness have all served to make a difficult situation easier and an exciting endeavor more enjoyable and reassuring. You get an "A” in my book.

Phyllis Lee



Thank you so much for marketing and selling my home at 63 Concord Lane. After turning down the first offer, I had regrets that I had made a serious mistake. You remained calm and reassuring throughout the time my house was being shown. I appreciated your professional attitude in handling all the closing details, as well.

Mary Russell



Thank you for helping me in selling my house on Cape Cod. You were always there giving professional advise and worked diligently to see the house sold in a timely manner. I appreciate all you have done and now I can enjoy my retirement.

Pat Suchy



Professional. Efficient. Smart. Thorough. Friendly. Diligent. These are just some of the words that come to mind when describing my excellent experience with Deborah Schilling and Tina Thibodeau of ReMax Classic. In 2004, they led the search for a home for me as I relocated from California to Cape Cod. When I purchased the beautiful cape in Marstons Mills, Deb and Tina followed through on every detail to ensure a smooth transaction. Then, in 2007, they listed my home fo r sale in a very challenging real estate market. Their hard work and effective marketing produced outstanding results -- my house sold within 90 days. Thanks Deb and Tina!
