Andrew and Deborah Thurm did a fantastic job by finding a buyer for me in a very competitive market, and getting close to a historically high price per square foot for me in Santa Monica. This was particularly impressive, not only because the condo complex was under renovation and had pending repairs, but also because the buyer was uniquely challenging to work with. You completely understood the issues surrounding the sale, overcame all buyer objections, and ultimately helped me sell my property in time to buy a much bigger home for my new Family. You and Debra are the finest realtors I've ever met, and I would happily serve as a referral source for you in the years ahead. Happy Holidays from Paula, me and our Angels!

I interviewed three people and feel very lucky that I choose Deborah Thurm to help me remodel my house.  Deborah helped me reorganize the entire house except for two children's bedrooms.  I had three bathrooms remodeled with new shower doors, tile and paint and one that was completely redone, one room that had mirrored walls that was transposed to a real dining room, two fireplaces that were retiled and mantles constructed for both of them, a TV room which was rearranged, new appliances for my kitchen and more. The outside of the house which was stucco is now smooth, repainted and finished with shutters. There was a new fence put around the outside of my house and Deborah helped me get started with the landscaping. 
Deborah has many attributes that compliment her great design ideas.  She incorporated my tastes in all the ideas and suggestions for the house.  She was very honest when it came to suggestions and said no when she thought something wouldn't work well.  She was always on time and incredibly reliable - always called if being only a few minutes late.  Everything was very clear and written out for my perusal with periodic updates in an easy to see composite.  She is a great advocate when it came to the people she used - she has great resources and is familiar with the work of the crews that she uses which is really helpful.  She negotiated each project with my approval and was cost conscious to the end. 
In addition, she brings with her an energy and enjoyment of watching the changes that take place. There were times when I would leave in the morning for work and come home to a completely different room.  It felt like one of remodeling cable shows which I subsequently became addicted to.
I was very grateful to have Deborah help me create what feels like a new home.

Deborah Thurm represented my partner and me in our recent real estate transaction, the purchase of a home in the Brookside neighborhood of Los Angeles.  We could not have been more pleased with Deborah's assistance in this transaction. From the very beginning of our search, to the day of closing (and even after closing!), Deborah was amazing.  I have never once received a higher level and a higher quality of service in any transaction.  Deborah was at all times professional, kind, diligent, hard-working, responsive, helpful, wise, knowledgeable, firm with the other side, sharp, available and above all a joy to work with.  I have worked with other real estate agents in other transactions and none come close to Deborah.  I will refer Deborah (and Coldwell Banker) to each and every friend of mine who is looking to purchase and/or sell a piece of real estate.                                                                  Again, I cannot express how wonderful of an experience working with Deborah has been. She, for us, was quite simply all that we could have hoped for and more. Much more.

Deborah advised us in the remodeling of our Santa Monica town house. She also managed all the different contractors for the job.  She was extremely professional, offered excellent advice, and was a great project manager. My experience with her suggests that she will listen carefully to the client, get a very good understanding of the client's goals, and then come up with creative solutions that are aesthetically pleasing, cost effective and at the same time meet the client's needs. In summary Deborah is excellent value for your money. I would highly recommend her service to all.

Deborah- It's a pleasure to work with you on this!  You're doing a great job! Thanks again for all of your efforts to get this sold quickly and for all your due diligence.  I love working with you.

Dear Deborah and Andrew, it has been nothing but a pleasure doing several deals with you and Andrew.Your work ethic and honesty is beyond what anyone could ask for. Your interior design skills make every project seem easy and successful. See u at the next escrow!! All the best

Thank you again for everything - we love the marketing center, and I enjoyed working with you so much.  I really appreciate the care you took in selecting each piece to create the exact look we were envisioning, and more importantly, you worked within our modest budget and our very rushed timeline!  Your communication and continued follow-up were also key to moving this project along and making it a success.  The entire experience was fantastic and I will highly recommend you to anyone needing interior design/staging services!  Thanks again.

In all of my 43 years of dealing with Real Estate agents, Andrew Thurm has been the most focused, thorough, honest & personable agent I've encountered.  He goes out of his way to take not only a business interest, but a personal interest as well.  He follows through to the very end, even if it's ongoing!
He and his partner Deborah (Thurm) make a fantastic team.  Between the 2 of them, they never miss a beat.  They have become our family realtors & personal friends.  I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a top notch, extraordinary Real Estate team. Andrew & Deborah we love you


During this past year my husband and I had the opportunity to work with Deborah on a major redecorating/remodeling project in Los Angeles. 
We had the added challenge of overseeing this project while living in Portland Oregon. We met Deborah for an interview and my husband and I quickly decided she was the person we wanted in charge of our project. She has a good working relationship with local contractors and sub-contractors and was able to have the first contractor to our home the next morning to begin getting bids. Deborah is knowledgeable, prompt, flexible, cost conscious and pays great attention to details. She is able to problem solve and maintain a sense of humor when unexpected challenges appear. We would not hesitate to hire Deborah again and we wish we had her here in Portland to manage our upcoming project. We think you are wonderful!!!

Deborah represented me as the real estate agent for my first home purchase.  Although at the time she had limited experience in the field, she worked her hardest to make sure that we were able to find the home that we wanted, within our timeline and budget.  She did an excellent job making sure all of the bases were covered, asked all of the right questions, was very organized and helped us through the process, which we couldn't have done on our own.  In the end, we ended up with the perfect home, and couldn't be happier.  When we're ready to sell, Deborah will be the first person that I call. Deborah is a leader, an innovator and a generous, caring, all-around good person.  You will be privileged to work with her.
