You were always available and on top of things (I have no idea how you do this and when you sleep!) We certainly highly recommend you to anyone who wants a top notch Realtor and caring person to guide them through it all! Thank you so much for everything and for truly understanding our needs…I can’t believe how quickly the house sold and that we got full price!”
Reverend & Mrs. Tucker – Yarmouthport, MA.
“We just felt like expressing our feelings on all that you have done for us. As you know, we had listed our house with another broker for three months and had no action at all. Our contract expired and we then started interviewing prospective realtors, you being one. The minute you walked through the door, we could sense your energy and exuberance and then your extensive knowledge on real estate, so of course we picked you and were never sorry for one minute. You have given us the most helpful suggestions, the best being the staging of our house, which by the way most people charge for! We are sure that all of this lead to the sale of the house. We totally trusted your opinions, and tried to do everything that you wanted because we always knew you had our best interests at heart. Speaking of heart, I don’t know if it’s your nursing background or what, but you have been totally caring through this whole ordeal and were ALWAYS extremely sensitive to our needs. I know that ours was not the easiest property to sell but you made it happen and we will always be grateful to you for that. You have gone beyond what any realtor is expected to do. You are a kind, caring but also extensively knowledgeable, proactive person and we will miss you very much. We truly think of you as a friend and hope others see in you what we did and that you continue to make people’s dreams come true!”
Jane & Sheila Leonard – Clayton, NC.
“Debby worked tirelessly to sell our home in a difficult market and was always there when I needed her. She always knew the answers to my millions of questions and even put up with my constant calls.

Geraldine Brady – Tampa, FL.

George and Roberta Glazer – Bradenton/Mashpee FL.
“I could not have asked for a better Realtor! It felt great doing business with you. You were easy to talk to and a very likeable person. This is the first time I have sold a home and I loved that you kept me informed and made sure I was onboard with everything you did. You let me feel that I was in the driver’s seat and that what I wanted was important. Between the open houses and fabulous amounts of advertising, my condo sold very quickly and everything went smoothly! I would highly recommend you to anyone!”
Pamela Hayes – Yarmouth, MA.
“Through your perseverance and insight, you brought a quick turn-around and an end to an overwhelming chapter in our lives. You should be proud of your determination and vast knowledge in your chosen field. You clearly had one goal in mind, selling Valerie’s home under challenging circumstances and her comfort in her next living surroundings. Eternally grateful!”
Mr. & Mrs. Scannell – Peabody, MA.
“We had our condo listed with another agent for 6 months and nothing happened, no open houses and only one showing. You came along and sold it within a few weeks and for full asking price! You then helped us get our next home for a super price. We only wish we had found you earlier!!”
Mr. & Mrs. Tucker – Sandwich, MA.
“As a former Realtor myself, I realized too quickly that I had hired the wrong realtor to sell my house. All he did was put my house on the multiple listing service and a sign in my front yard. Once I switched to you, the action really started. I received great advertising, a well attended open house and within 6 weeks an acceptable offer! Your services did not stop there! You were a tremendous help to me with liquidating the house, overseeing the packing and the move to my new home…Thank you, thank you, thank you!!”
Barbara Gannon – Centerville/Mansfield, MA.
“I had two separate tough properties to sell with nightmare tenants which turned into difficult short sales. You stepped up to the plate and managed to sell both quickly and both for full list price! You handled all the details for me which was important as I am so busy with work. I really relied on your knowledge, energy and willingness to get the job done.”
Matthew Dumas – Barnstable MA.
“Thank you so much for helping me sell my home in two months and we got asking price!! I would definitely recommend you to everybody!!”

Peter Scarafile – Barnstable, MA.
“We wanted to compliment Deborah for the superb scheduling in showing my wife and me potential homes in 55+ communities…she not only brought drinks & snacks to ensure we didn’t falter or succumb to weakness due to their full schedule, but kept the schedule right on time. Because of their experience as Realtors, they worked off each other as a great team to insure that both my wife and I fully understood the pluses and minuses of each listing that was shown. We’d like to thank you for a great job!”

Edward & Mary Lynch – Yarmouth Port, MA. & Niantick, CT.
“We really want to thank you for all your help and truly appreciated your excellent response time, as you always responded to all our phone calls and questions immediately. You not only worked with us to get our home “market ready”, but worked hard to get the home sold for our price, and so quickly! Thank you so much!!”
Glory Wedge & Alan Duckworth Mashpee & Trinity, FL.
“Cape Cod Retirement Realty is a wonderful part of KInlin Grover. Debby was always doing all she could, to make selling our home, a little easier. We certainly appreciate how well they treated us! They even checked in on us during a storm and asked if there was anything they could do for us. Deborah and Jan are a great team. They were knowledgeable, courteous, thorough, on time and we felt they went beyond what a realtor “usually” does. They were caring and offered to help us with every step, including an all day garage sale and dispensing of leftover boxes to various charities….which saved us time & money. As an former teacher, I give them both an A+”
John and Lorraine Blanchon – West Yarmouth, MA.
“Deborah and Jan were outstanding realtors and truly helped me with the entire transition of my moving across country to Arizona. Mine was not an easy home to consolidate but they managed it with the support and compassion I needed, yet I felt in charge at all times. I highly recommend their program and services to anyone....you wont be sorry!”
Helen Cross – Harwich, MA
“If you are selling a house on Cape Cod, I highly suggest you call Deborah Del Negro & Jan Rodrigues. The dedication that these two showed throughout this process was nothing short of spectacular. From the moment I met them, I was impressed with their honesty and willingness to assist in any way needed. If you are looking for a Realtor to get the job done…you have found them!”
Carol Damon – Osterville, MA
“Having just sold my Cape Cod House in record time, all the credit goes to Cape Cod Retirement Realty. Deborah and her team made the entire process effortless for me that I can highly recommend them, particularly since I was an absentee owner . Besides coordinating all the details beautifully, they were always available when I needed. Highly recommend!”
Elizabeth Coumbe – Centerville MA & Naples FL.
“Our experience was enormously positive. Deb & Jan really know their stuff and got the job done! We will highly recommend them to people looking to sell or buy a home”
Susan Roberto – Marstons Mills
“Debby & Jan, did an outstanding & excellent job in promoting the sale of our home at 161 Cap’n Crosby Rd in Centerville. We attended one of their seminars for Seniors on selling. Debby was very knowledgeable with SO much information, which was most helpful! Debby & Catherine were also very helpful with any questions we needed answered. They were always in contact and only a phone call away. They did a superb job with regard to advertising and providing Open Houses..AS PROMISED! Our home sold in a short time, which was most important to us, since we wasted an entire year with the WRONG Realtor. Previously. KUDOS to Debby & Jan for an excellent job and we would HIGHLY recommend them as “The Best” !!!
Eugene & Lois Binda – Centerville and NJ.
“If you are considering a move in the future, Deb & Jan are the best Realtors that we have ever used. They were efficient, knowledgeable, and so very kind. Our home sold in record time and their guidance was invaluable. All of my telephone calls were returned in a timely manner and we were very impressed by their support. We all loved the way you helped us with our yard sale !! Please feel free to call us should you have any questions!”
Dan & Linda Risely – Harwich and Indiana
“We feel as though we could not have chosen a better team to sell our property. The understanding of your profession and the tact and compassion you both showed to us make you a very special team. We would certainly recommend you to anyone in need of expert Real Estate agents. We are so thankful to you both, Debby & Jan for your patience and diligence. You were always at the other end of the phone and made the whole process a success…which wasn’t easy!! Many, many thanks!!”
Tom & Jan Morrier – Dennis and Naples, FL
“Deborah & Jan are Realtors Extraordinaire. You answered everyone of my questions and were ALWAYS available when I needed you or support! What we found most helpful was all the help & suggestions before our sale….which gave us a full price offer in ONE DAY!! Our moving sale was fantastic and I cant believe how hard you two work!! We simply cant believe all the extra things you do for your clients… We thank you a million times!”
Earnest & Claire Daigneault – Centerville and TN
“With the considerable help of Deborah Del Negro of Kinlin Grover Real Estate, we were able to sell one property and purchase another on Cape Cod, where we enjoy having a second home. We made these transactions in 2014, but Deb worked with us on and off for several years previous, as we refined our ideas about what we wanted to do. She was extraordinarily patient, unfailingly good-humored and impressively savvy about the process and the mid-Cape real estate market. Deb has a real talent for working with older clients, such as my husband and me, and her experience in this segment of the market is deep. She often anticipated our questions before we even asked them and knew when to gently steer us away from inappropriate properties. She also helped a great deal with informing us how to stage the property we wanted to sell, such as what furniture to leave in place and other tasks that were necessary. She offered referrals to tradespeople if we needed them. When it came time to find the right new property to buy, her advice was invaluable. She knew which homes were not appropriately priced or had design problems or were likely to be noisy due to traffic or children in the neighborhood. She understood our personalities and knew where we would be happy and where we would not. We appreciated her confident air and solid knowledge, which helped us through the emotional ups and downs of selling and buying. We knew she had our back, and that was very comforting and important to us. We trusted her to do the right thing for us, and she did. I would not hesitate to recommend Deb to anyone who wants to buy or sell a mid-Cape property, and in fact, have done so. We are delighted with our new place in East Dennis, but should we ever decide to sell it, Deb will be the real estate professional that we will call.”
Bob & Carole Goldberg – East Dennis, MA
“We are pleased to acknowledge the diligence exhibited by Deb DelNegro and her team in accepting the challenge to market our substantial property in Centerville on Cape Cod that had been on the market for two years without a single serious offer being received. Having passed the baton to Deb, a number of improvements were recommended and immediately undertaken, with our property selling within one week of reentering the marketplace. Wonderful, individualized service.” “We are pleased to acknowledge the diligence exhibited by Deb DelNegro and her team in accepting the challenge to market our substantial property in Centerville on Cape Cod that had been on the market for two years without a single serious offer being received.

“During one of the most difficult times of my life, you were a wonderful support system. I felt so overwhelmed by the amount of work and organization that was needed to sell my house, and you came to the rescue! You did an amazing job of organizing my clutter, selling the furniture and staging the house for sale. Not only were you in constant contact with me but also my children and we appreciate it so much. I can not believe the house sold in two days! THANK YOU for all the hard work and support you provided in preparing the house and selling it so quickly. I could NOT have done this without you!”
Luzie Zoubra – Yarmouth Port, MA
“Debby & Jan really listened to my needs and wishes. They were quite knowledgeable in their field, followed through with advertising promises and used all their resources to get my home sold quickly! Thanks a million!”
Margaret Macaskill – South Yarmouth, MA
” Deborah from Cape Cod Retirement Realty was an absolute Godsend for my parents. She had a huge house completely packed with decades of belongings so that the idea of moving out and selling the house was very intimidating for them. Debby moved them through the steps of clearing everything out, including having an estate sale and other details. The care and attention to detail she brought to the task was inspiring. She treated my parents like they were family so that I always felt comfortable and knew their best interests were the biggest priority. Deb’s experience in nursing and caring for the elderly in her previous career shows in everything she does-infinite patience, great listening skills, and anticipation of concerns. My parents had a very challenging situation but Deb never hesitated, never wavered and provided constant reassurance that she could handle it-and she was right. I could never have managed selling the house from my distant location without her help. She went above the call of duty in every regard to make it work. I would trust her and her team completely with any aspect of an elderly relocation. They are at their core ethical and totally dedicated to the client. It is inspiring to know that there are still people out there who love what they do and don’t place profit above excellence and duty. She was always in my corner and I will forever be grateful”
Dr. Matthew Gardiner – Centerville and Stoneham, MA
I had the good fortune to be referred to Debby Del Negro to handle to sale of my late aunt and uncle’s property in Dennis. It is a big job to handle the sale of a cherished family home both emotionally and financially. Debby was a lifesaver for me!! She has intimate knowledge of the Real Estate market as well as the Boomer & Senior market on Cape Cod. Their was no detail too big nor small for her. The main thing was that I am not located on the Cape and she did many xtra things to get the job done. She marketed the property often as promised and worked tirelessly with open houses until the property sold. Debby was very professional and responsive and I could not have been happier with her services!”
John McAvoy-Sharon and Dennis, MA
“Realtors Deb Del Negro and Jan Rodrigues were the gifts I so desperately needed when faced with the problem of suddenly having to sell my parents home on the Cape. My Dad passed away resulting in my Mom moving to a senior community and my having to put their home on the market. Being a San Diego resident, I had absolutely no idea which Realtor to choose. Thankfully, my parents’ excellent estate planning attorney, Keats Boyd, gave me Deb Del Negro’s name as the person he personally uses and high recommends. At our first meeting, Debby arrived more than fully prepared with information, detailed, local stats, marketing strategies and more. Throughout the sale process, Deb & Jan’s response time to my many questions was extremely rapid: whenever I needed them, they were available either by phone, text or email, giving me thorough answers, To say they were the glue that held me together is putting it mildly. Debby doesn’t just market & sell your home…they become personally invested in your emotional needs, recognizing the strong attachments clients may have to their home, possessions & memories. Any “hiccups” that occurred along the way were handled if possible by Debby & Jan to take any pressure off of me. Our house sold for full asking price and closed within 2 months: now that’s a win-win!!! In the end, hiring Debby Del Negro and Jan Rodrigues, was, by far, the best & wisest decision my Mom & I could have ever made. Remember: When it comes time to selling your home, you want Realtors who thoroughly know the physical area, are incredibly organized, utilize every marketing tool available to them and become truly invested in achieving the best possible outcome for you, their client. If your goal is exactly that, then please look no further than Debby Del Negro and Jan Rodrigues: they are the ultimate dynamic Cape Cod Real Estate, capable to achieving outstanding results!”
Donna Chisholm-San Diego & Falmouth, MA.
“I can’t believe it’s over, but thanks to you two, it all worked out just as you promised! I can’t thank you enough for all your guidance, patience and love. Really, I feel so free of all the “stuff”. You were SO great to work with that I almost wish it wasn’t over (ha ha ). I have Sam to thank for leading me to you. He was very happy with the results, as was I. Almost asking price and within one week! Thank you again for everything and of course, I highly recommend you to anyone who can really use the detailed & personalized service you provide to Seniors!”
Joan Llewelyn-West Yarmouth, MA
“To any and all who are looking for a Realtor—Look NO FURTHER! As Debby and Jan make for a formidable duo! If you are looking to buy or sell a home, they will go ABOVE and BEYOND to assist, answer any and all questions with honesty and knowledge, and put you at ease with the process. We had to re-locate before finalizing on the property and they took on an estate sale, downsizing, emptying and having it cleaned up for us. We truly could not have asked for more. They put us in touch with locals to help us keep our grounds mowed & presentable and helped out with getting rid of items, trash, yard junk and more. They will ALWAYS have a place in our hearts and a friendship for life!”
John & Kristi Jeglinski -Sandwich, MA & Florida
“Debby was super good to work with. I had very little time to look & buy and with no car. Debby made herself available to an extreme in order to help me pull it off. I was unfamiliar with the area and interested in a lot of different villages. She patiently showed me all over, looking at the listings as excitedly as me! She helped me narrow down my search area until we found the perfect house. All through the process, Debby was available to answer questions & provide any support I needed to make my move happen. I have bought and sold quite a few houses but never have I had the type of high level support & help as with Debby and her team. They are true professionals and wonderful people!”
Edward & Marilyn Galinksi-Nantucket to Centerville
“ I have often heard that moving is one of life’s largest stressors-not only is the physical part of it so difficult, the emotional side has always been the hardest for me. Deb Del Negro has repeatedly made my multiple sales/purchases of homes so much easier for me. As someone who tends to “move around”, I have made multiple home moves in fifteen years and I have always worked with Deborah Del Negro. Now, in my fourth move with her, there are not enough words to use to explain how she adds that “comfort level” as she helps assure that all details are in order as she is proactive and always a step ahead of the next thing to be done., All my calls, texts. Emails, etc. are all promptly handles in a prompt and reassuring manner While she is an astute business person, she is also very protective of her clients. In some incidences I have felt like she is like a daughter when I feared I might be a bit overwhelmed with details—help with staging, suggestions for downsizing, and even had a moving sale for me without charging me, etc. And, the listing procedure was actually enjoyable-Debs high end marketing strategy is right on target for pricing and presentation. Professional photography, well written presentation and wonderful showings! Two homes shew sold for me were “gone” the first week. Her homework is always done up front!” Sheila Dern-South Yarmouth & Florida
“ I would definitely recommend Deborah Del Negro and her team for any and all Real Estate needs. This was the first time we sold a property and Debby was able to answer all our questions and walk us through the process. She is very knowledgeable and attentive. She was able to ease our worries and anxieties as issues arose. She was patient as it took us one year to find our new home. She was then right on top of it to sell our house which she did in 17 days!! Debby and her team were supportive through what can be a very stressful process. Debby’s caring nature , knowledge and attention to detail to our needs made the process easy to navigate and ultimately meet our goals of selling and buying a new home!! Cheryl Heinzmann and Joel Martinez -Cotuit, MA.
“Thank you so much for helping us sell our house! Your response to all our questions was very timely and you were always available when we needed you. You also explained everything along the way and we truly thank you!!!”
Walt & Jackie -West Yarmouth, MA
“Thank you so very much for all your help! I just can’t thank you enough!!”
Elaine Rosenblad -Mashpee, MA.
“We can not “Thank You” and your team enough for the commitment you made to us in the preparation and selling of our home. It was a long period of time when we first discussed selling our home to the signing of the listing contract. All along the process, you were understanding, patient, informative, diligent (especially over the details), the comprehension to perceive and grasp any and all ideas brought forth to you. Your knowledge of the Real Estate market showed us the compassion & tolerance you possess, along with the remarkable intelligence involving your field of expertise. Your endurance equals no other in the Real Estate business. We first met in 2011 and finally placed our home on the market in late 2018. Never once over the seven years were we pressured into signing an agreement to sell the house. When we signed, we felt it would take 2 to 2.5 yrs to obtain a buyer for our old/antique property. To everyone’s delight, we received an offer within 3 weeks! Now, the vigorous effort to remove all items in a 9 room house with 4 full baths and a large antique barn was a journey that overwhelmed us at times. We were able to complete this journey with assistance from our daughter and you & your team. Your insight into every aspect involving the sale of a home such as, fire codes, movers, legal staff, house cleaners, etc. was invaluable/priceless. Your weekly telephone calls to update us (even if nothing was new to report) was most welcome and appreciated Also, the kit you distributed along with your newsletters are right on track with current news, events, procedures, new laws and information of needed services on Cape Cod. We would also like to say how much we appreciate your taking under your wings, so to speak, our friend, Pat. Your previous career as a nurse assisted in your current relationship with her. Your understanding of her physical and other needs have alleviated many of her concerns. We wish you and your team the very best in the future!!!”
Pat Doyle-Mashpee & Florida
“I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how grateful I am for your excellent help in selling the condominium at 727 Main St in Osterville, for my sister, Nancy Vecchione. You made this entire process seamless for us. Your expertise in staging the condominium was instrumental in getting it in “Tip-Top” shape for showings and made it possible to get the best price. You were always available day and night to interface with me, the condominium board, the tradesmen that serviced it, the prospective buyers and the attorneys at the sale. Deborah, you offer full service to your clients and their families. Anyone who chooses you as their Realtor will not be disappointed. Thank you again for the highest quality of service one could hope for!”
Susan Vecchione Duenas-Osterville, MA
“Jan and Deborah were very helpful in many ways! They: *Let me know what the buying market was like in each season
*Explained to me the different mortgages a buyer would be using and how it impacted the sale.
*Explained and respected my rights as a seller regarding what was my responsibility and what was the buyers responsibility
*Helped me find good contractors
*Contacted me thru phone at home and at work and thru email especially when a deadline was approaching
*Came to my job to make sure purchase and sale agreements were signed.
*Explained to me the process of selling a house and how certain forms were standard and that other buyers’ requests were unreasonable.
*Worked with our Family lawyer and Real Estate Lawyer very well
*Sold 2 of Our Family homes and solved multiple problems along the way getting us a good price for both houses. Thank you!!!!!! ”
Janis Hicks-Hyannis & Sandwich, MA.
“You did the impossible…you made selling Real Estate a fun experience! Thank you for all your help!!!”
Dean Riley-Hyannis Port, MA.
“I just wanted to thank you for making the sale of my parent’s home a quick and easy process! It was a big relief to me that you handled everything while I was living several hours away. You gave me good, practical advice on prepping the house and arranged for beautiful, online photos which lead to an offer at full asking price following just one open house. Thank You!!”
Bob Cullen-West Yarmouth, MA.
“A few years ago, Ms. DelNegro assisted in what I considered a very difficult real restate transaction. During the process, she went through every hurdle with professionalism, full knowledge, competency and all in a timely manner. At the time. I believe, a “higher power” put her in place knowing she would be the individual to accomplish an outcome that would be positive for everyone involved.. Thank you Deborah for seeing it all through! Was not easy for you! Deborah DelNegro and her team are a tremendous asset to Kinlin Grover!!!”
Rose S.-West Yarmouth
“This is a very sincere thank you to Deborah DelNegro and Jan Rodrigues who recently helped me sell my Cape Cod House. I am a 79 year old widow who needed and received their help every step of the way and I wish to recommend them to anyone else in a similar situation. They were always available and I do mean always, ready to answer questions, solve problems and do whatever needed doing, from beginning to end….and always with kindness. They were considerate of my feelings throughout what could have been a very stressful time. “Nobody does it better” Thanks doesn’t even come close!”
Carol Masalsky-Falmouth, MA. & Florida
“Selling a house is a major step in your life … and has also made the list of ‘most stressful events in life.’. And if you are an older person, perhaps not near family members or with diminished health or vitality …. well, the stress can be overwhelming … and perhaps even a concern for your family members.
Deborah Del Negro and Jan Rodriquez of Kinlin Grover’s Osterville, MA office recently managed the sale of our home, and we were so glad to have been recommended to them and have used them as our agents.
In addition to their market savvy and considerable real estate experience, they have a priceless program and service which they offer known as the Walk Away program. Basically they manage EVERYTHING you will need to complete this major transition in your life — finding the right buyer, of course, and also helping you to set up the moving of belongings you will keep, having a house sale of items you will no longer need, arranging the sale of furnishings no longer needed, being on hand for inspections, and generally ensuring that all requirements are met on time for the transition to a new owner.
They are ever available with regular updates on the success of sales, advice on local resources with regular communications on ALL that transpires.
Priceless? Indeed!! Add genuine concern, cheerfulness, and a sense of well being and you have a service that guarantees success, and you have the reason we are so appreciative of having found Deborah Del Negro and Jan Rodriques.”
Dale & Sandie Siedsma-Centerville, MA. & New Jersey
“Our journey to sell my friend’s house began over three years ago when selling was just a thought. We decided to attend a seminar presented by Deb DelNegro and a real estate attorney and others. First thing we learned, it is NEVER TOO SOON to begin the process. After attending the seminar, we did have Deb come to his house and tell him where she thought he should begin. The dreaded basement and garage.” Once that is completed, call me and we can then reassess.” We did not want to be pestered and told Deb and Jan that from the beginning. They completely understood and stuck by their word. So basement and garage were the first priority. Having built and lived in the house for over 30 years, one can only imagine how full both were with “stuff.” Along with the stuff, were the memories that surfaced uncovering something you hadn’t seen in years. After making a good dent in the basement and garage, we called Deb and Jan for more direction. They were very eager to help us to begin working cosmetically on the house and begin getting rid of furnishings. They were more then willing to arrange an estate sale, yards sale, gave us leads on selling furniture, set us up with electricians, plumbers, etc. Deb even made arrangements for accommodations at a local hotel in the middle of July, so that we could have a place to stay while we got the house ready for the passing. Above and beyond what is expected of your realtor. Three and a half years later , the house listed on May 22 and we had an offer for asking price on the 23. With their expertise, they guided us again through the process, only now we were the buyers. We Downsized to a condo in Southport and are very happy. It was a long journey that I am not sure we could have gotten through without their advice and continual reassurance.”

“After our first meeting I said to my mom that it seemed like Deborah and Jan would be able to squeeze every penny out of the house and hold our hands while doing it. That is exactly what happened, even beyond what we imagined. In most cases the answers were provided before we even knew what questions to ask. When decisions were to be made Deborah always took time to thoroughly explain options and put them in the context of our specific needs. The whole process was laid out with clarity and careful attention to detail. One of the most reassuring things was the anticipation of expenses that was spot on. So grateful to have been warned. They put a lot of creative hard work into a safe moving sale in the midst of the pandemic – above and beyond! The last time I saw them was after the movers had come. I had to leave the next day and it was chaos – no one was taking donations because of the pandemic. I was going to try to make multiple trips to the dump and then drive two days to get home when Debby said, That’s why we call it our “Walk Away” service…you can give us the keys right now and we’ll take care of the rest.” What a blessing!”

“Jan and Deb are wonderful people. They are always available to answer questions and help during the home buying or selling process. We were very happy with our experience.”

“I knew it was finally time to make a big change to how I was living. I was ready for an easier one floor home without all the headaches of a single family. I searched and found the senior community, Everleigh. They recommended Debby Del Negro and her Cape Cod Retirement Living Group…and I couldn’t be happier! Debby and Jan helped with every bit of my transition and I could not have done this without them! They helped me downsize, hosted a free moving sale and even staged the house! We sold quickly and for top dollar!”
Judy Zaido-Sandwich, MA.
“ I can’t thank you enough for the smoothest transaction I have had in years. I have to say you didn't leave a stone unturned and were by far the most caring and understanding person I have met in years! Your personable nature, sense of humor and determination was beyond expectations. You are the best!!”

“ I am very grateful to both Deborah Del Negro and Jan Rodrigues and am currently working with them to sell my house and move into my new home!”

“ As a senior who was approaching a rather large move into a smaller senior community in another state, I was really nervous about how to approach the large and overwhelming task of downsizing. Luckily, I attended one of Debby's senior seminars and learned that there are Realtors out there who specialize in helping seniors like me. They claimed to take care of all the large and small details...even hosting a free moving sale. I was hopeful but nervous as I had had several poor experiences with Realtors during a prior sale and didn't know who to trust. To make things worse, it was really tough to find anyone to help as we were right in the middle of the COVID pandemic. I decided to hire Cape Cod Retirement Living and I'm so glad I did! Debby and Jan kept true to their word and worked very hard to help me with my big transition which included, downsizing, liquidating, cleaning out & cleaning up, staging, professional photography and yes, a free moving sale! They were very good about keeping me in the loop, being sensitive to my needs & concerns and essentially held my hand from the beginning to the very end. The girls get Five Stars!!”
Jean West-Osterville MA.
“When my husband suddenly passed away last spring, I knew there were two things I needed to do: sell my Cape Cod house (too hard to manage from out of state) and hire Deborah Del Negro to make the transaction as smooth as possible. I was right about both. Deb and her colleague Jan Rodrigues, Retirement & Downsizing Specialists at Cape Cod Retirement Living-Kinlin Grover-Compass, exclusively work with older buyers and sellers and are efficient, market-savvy and understanding of their needs. Such clients, such as myself, often cannot be present for the selling process and closing, but Deb can handle every aspect, from the downsizing and liquidation process to staging and professional photography to hiring moving/cleaning and other services, including suggesting a lawyer for the closing. She answered my many questions promptly and supported me thoroughly with her capable advice and compassionate manner. Despite the currently weakened real estate market, she sold my house swiftly and for an excellent price. She made what might have been a difficult process go smoothly and successfully. I enthusiastically recommend Cape Cod Retirement Living to anyone wanting to sell or buy a Cape home”

" We could not have done this process without Debby and Jan!
The task of sorting through years of accumulated possessions combined with the intricacies of moving and selling our house seemed overwhelming. We were fortunate to see an ad in the Cape Cod Times for a Real Estate Seminar designed for seniors. We called and reserved our spaces.
At the seminar, we were very impressed with what Cape Cod Retirement Living had to offer. Debby had a thorough knowledge of what was involved in the process and the seminar was especially geared to seniors. The handouts on all phases of downsizing, moving, and selling were wonderful.
Our first meeting with Debby and Jan further demonstrated their competency and trustworthiness. Through all stages of this process of downsizing, moving, and selling our house, they were with us – on our side – giving us gentle prods when needed – but most of all reminding us: “YOU CAN DO IT!” and “IT WILL GET DONE!”
When it came time to put our house on the market, they kept advising us about both the best timing and pricing. We initially pushed back a little on the timing, but they were absolutely right on both counts. They also guided us through some tricky negotiations with potential buyers. And in the end, the purchase price exceeded our asking price.
The staging of our house was done beautifully and we could not believe the quality of the photography. In addition, the cleaner they hired for us did a great job both before the showings and for the final cleanout.
We cannot say enough about the knowledge, competency, work ethic, friendliness, and helpfulness of Debby and Jan.
Again – We could not have done it without them!"

"I am currently living in Maryland with my daughter and her husband, having gotten through the process of moving long distance and all it entails with the help of Deborah and Jan.
Looking back: They came to the house and very clearly explained how it all would work from beginning to end. My daughter and I were very certain that we could get through this with their help and guidance.
The steps involved were pricing, down sizing, liquidation, staging, moving, cleaning, and when unexpected situations arose, Deb and Jan were so prepared to guide us through. I think that is what I appreciated the most was their ability to reassure us that we would get through each one, and we did…..which brings us to where we are now….Mission Accomplished/ a very good experience!
I am in my 80’s and I would recommend Cape Cod Retirement Living with Deborah and Jan to any Senior who is selling a home."
