Orchard Realty Client Testimonials from Buyers and Sellers
If we were to buy or sell a property in Julian, I would only use Deborah as an agent. A professional in the real-estate field could not better represent you than Deborah Kerch.
–Robert W. Ball
My experience with Deborah was fantastic. I had tried other Realtors® with no success. Deborah was very good with advertising, and my photo gallery of the house was awesome. I would highly recommend her for any real estate needs.
Deborah not only assisted us in selling our home, but she also assisted us in buying another home.
–Gary and Jackie Price
Deborah was a joy to work with and to know. Her history as a REALTOR® in Julian was a priceless asset. Her advice on improvements to assist in selling and staging was what helped to sell our house more quickly and get the asking price.

Deborah Kerch, your personal and professional skills were put to the test, and you came out in flying colors. You were a lifesaver on so many levels. Wish you much success.

We contacted Deborah when we began our search for our dream house in Julian. Deborah was super responsive and, in addition to showing us the house we asked about, had a keen sense about what other properties we might be interested in and suggested seeing them as well. She did not waste our time; the other homes were all possible considerations. We ended up buying the house we originally were interested in, and the negotiating/buying process couldn’t have been easier. Deborah answered all our questions in a timely manner and seemed to almost work all hours of the night to be available to respond to us whenever we had questions or concerns. We cannot say enough great things about our experience working with Deborah. I recommended Deborah to a good friend of mine, who just closed on a house in Julian, and she was very pleased and satisfied working with Deborah.
–Lis Eddy & Alan Whitcomb
I found your weekly advertising most helpful. Excellent and professional representation.
Anyone would be lucky to have you as an agent.
Deborah, you did a wonderful job and always made certain we were comfortable during all of the transactions. Yes, we would refer you to our friends and family; you are a committed agent and made everything fair in our working relationship.
Over the years my husband and I have gone up to Julian to celebrate Thanksgiving holidays. We had talked about retiring up there. So we got a referral to Orchard Reality and thus began our Julian journey. That was when we met Deborah Kerch. I found a piece of property that I loved but was afraid I could not afford it. However, it was Deborah Kerch who encouraged me to take a chance and throw out my best offer, which I thought I would never get. She personally sat down with the seller and the seller’s agent to present my offer. I felt all through the buying process that she was 100% there, working on my behalf. … As I have gotten to know people in Julian, I have found that Deborah is well known in the community as being honest and has an excellent reputation in the real estate business. I highly recommend her to anyone looking in and around the Julian area. She will be a true advocate for you.
Deborah Kerch, you were forthright — we felt great and “In Good Hands” at all times!
–Frank and Nancy Levett
We liked Deborah from day one; liked that she gave us the same attention as her more lucrative clients and liked the fact that she was willing to go to bat for us when we made an offer. We would work with her again, in a heartbeat. We would enthusiastically recommend Deborah! She bent over backwards to help us.
–Al and Julie Miller
When my husband and I decided to purchase a home in Julian, we contacted Julian Realty and we were paired with Deborah Kerch. When we arrived she greeted us warmly and presented us with a bound portfolio full of houses that met our criteria, a map of the area, things to do locally, a history of how she came to live in Julian and a description of the wonderful life that she was building. Deborah took the time to get to know us personally and determine what we both were looking for. With each house showing, Deborah gathered more and more information about us and refined our search to houses that met both of our criteria. She guided us through the processes that are unique to buying a house in the mountains. She introduced us to the local people and made us feel connected to the community immediately. Deborah was professional, informative and patient in letting us take our time to decide which property was right for us. She provided us with resources for every step of the process. I have in the past, and I will in the future recommend Deborah as a REALTOR® for any of my friends or family who may be interested in purchasing a home in Julian.

Deborah, I loved everything you did for us. You went above and beyond your job. We were dealing with unknown territory with our property. You also helped us through the short sale caused by the recession.
–Greg and Maryann Silverthorn
You knowing the “Do’s and Don’ts” about selling our home was most helpful to us.
Miss your smiling and Positive Attitude.
–Emery and Molly Richards
She is thorough, prepared and tenacious. I would absolutely refer friends and family to Deborah. I couldn’t have done this without her!
