Deborah delivers what she promises. As a builder/developer in a new market with a new product line our thoughts were that we needed to have multiple collateral pieces designed to introduce our company, our product and our new project to the market. Deborah Fisher saved us thousands by encouraging us to allow her team to create a single piece that told both our story and that of our community in a way that our consumers find user-friendly and informative.

Deborah Fisher is one of the finest marketers that I have had the pleasure of working with in my thirty-plus years in the homebuilding industry. I enjoy being able to pick up the phone and get straight forward feedback and solutions to some of our most challenging sales and marketing issues. Deborah has the ability to quickly assess a company’s sales and marketing situation and then develop a comprehensive plan and strategy to build momentum and generate traffic and sales. I highly recommend her services for those builders and developers seeking to improve their company’s overall efforts.
~ L. Roberts, Homebuilder; Sales Trainer, and Professional Sales-Builder Consultant
Deborah’s marketing approach is simply outstanding, the finest I have ever experienced. I am always greatly impressed by her work ethic, the quality of her work, the results, and her ability to analyze current market situations. If you want to be successful and sell homes, assign her the opportunity to immerse herself in your homes, your product, and your communities and she will come back to you with amazing insight, ideas and a strong action plan to rebuild interest and awareness in your company.

We had struggled with the services of several agencies, including a large California firm, and began seeking a firm that could not only provide us with the creative but a firm that could pull together all of the other aspects of marketing. In 2007 we narrowed our agency selection down to a New York firm and Deborah’s company. We chose Deborah and have never regretted it. Simply put, she delivers what she says. Fisher & Company handles all of our public relations work, media purchasing, creative, special events, direct mail campaigns . . . Deborah really offers us the convenience of bringing all of our marketing needs under one umbrella with everything being done well.
~ B. Brown, Developer
Deborah has an amazing work ethic and is very likely one of the best marketers in the building industry. She continues to surprise us with her ideas and methods to keep building momentum for not only our sales efforts but for our company as a whole. I definitely feel that had we not been using Deborah for our overall advertising, sales and marketing efforts, we would not have had the results we needed to build-out in a tough market.
~ J.A. Belavia, Builder
One of the critical areas of homebuilding is customer relations and our company has struggled far too long both internally and externally. Internally we suffered from finger-pointing and we had no accountability for poor quality; externally we lacked finesse when dealing with customers. Additionally, customers were always complaining that the salesperson told them one thing and we kept delivering another.
Based on Deborah’s broad experience in homebuilding sales and marketing management, we brought Deborah in to help us improve both our internal issues and external ones. Finally we had results.
Deborah has the ability to go out onto the job site and effectively resolve any conflicts between our customers and the construction or sales teams that take into consideration not only the customer’s interest and concerns but our company’s interests as well. Deborah’s experience as a sales manager has helped us to resolve delicate customers issues and hold sales together without giving away the show.
Based on her suggestions, we made some adjustments in-house that turned around the quality of our homes when delivering them to our customers, lowered our warranty costs, and increased our overall customer satisfaction scores, we put several systems in place that have effectively stopped the customers from trying to get more from us than what we had agreed.
Her training in communication and people relations, which she credits to her years at Centex Homes, provides us with another tool that takes our company out of the middle of the middle of the conflict and provides the customer with a third-party to hear their concerns so that issues will be satisfactorily resolved between all parties.

My experience with Deborah is that she understands what the sales team is going through and has been a tremendous support to the overall success of my department. In fact, in appreciation for her efforts we recently presented her an award at our company’s year end awards ceremony for being our vendor of the year. Deborah is a part of our team and we consider her one of us.
