Deb Odom Stern - Reinhart Realtors

Deb Odom Stern


About Me

Deb Odom Stern has been a student of real estate all of her life. As a child, growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, in what is now Silicon Valley, she routinely put "California Real Estate" on her wish list for Santa. (Santa now wishes he would have listened to Deb's real estate advice.) From a very young age Deb had a knack for knowing how to get the maximum value out of a house. While her contemporaries were reading 'People Magazine' Deb was reading 'This Old House' and learning how to do her own home maintenance.


After college Deb became a teacher and bought and sold her own properties for many years before starting a family. Once her kids were old enough, she joined the Charles Reinhart Company full-time. Her first year as an agent, she was Rookie of the Year - an award for outstanding performance.


Deb now uses her background as a teacher and private investor to benefit her clients. She believes that education is the best tool that she can give as her clients embark on the process of buying or selling a home. To that end she keeps clients up-to-date on market conditions, financing options, new listings and recent sales - data that is key to helping her clients make good real estate decisions. Deb's success is due to her discipline, strong work ethic, and (perhaps most of all) the fact that Deb LOVES her job!

Deb was amazing to work with. I had a tight window to get my house ready to place on the market and also had to move prior to it's listing. She was an organizational dream and very encouraging as I put together last minute items such as painting, plumbing work. She was very informative in terms of setting expectations and evaluating my home for optimal time and price to market. Throughout the process, she and her team were incredibly responsive and kept the ball rolling. I had heard from colleagues who had worked with her how she went the extra mile, and she really does. She is experienced and knows how to get the job done.

Deb was recommended to us by a trusted colleague and we have thoroughly enjoyed working with her on our real estate needs. She’s attentive, available, and extremely knowledgeable in her field. We bought and sold our homes with her. She has no problems with low-ball offers, knew how to handle the unique parts of our negotiation, and accurately predicted how our old home would sell based on thorough analysis of the market trends at that time of the year. Deb is also extremely organized, well-prepared with clearly outlined dates, detailed emails and instructional handbooks, and timely yet non-intrusive reminders. Whenever our next chapter is, we’d definitely work with Deb again!

Deb was great to work with and helped us find/buy our dream home in one of the most competitive housing markets in history. The process was very smooth and her local connections and recommendations made it that much easier. We will definitely use Deb if we are ever in the market again!

Deb helped me buy my first home and after 14 years I couldn’t have picked anyone else to help me sell that same house. She lived in the same neighborhood and kept in touch all those years because she truly cares about her clients and exudes confidence and trust. I left my keys with her and moved out and Deb took care of Everything. She had the foresight and experience to preempt changes in the market to make sure we sold right in time and to satisfaction. I could only wish my next agent in my new location in the future could be nearly as excellent as Deb. Be grateful if you work with her!

Deb understands the Ann Arbor market and helped us navigate the crazy housing market. She struck a great balance between allowing us to make our own decisions and facilitating critical reflection on what type of property was right for us. When it came time to make offers she helped us craft competitive ones by being proactive in exploring what the seller's priorities were. She even taught our 3-year old some of the tricks of the real estate game.

Deb is an amazing realtor! She is easy to get in touch with, very knowledgeable about the local market, and was always looking out for us. She helped guide my husband and I during the purchase of our first home. Deb is very responsive and a great communicator. She helped us get a good price and gave us the confidence to wait until we found a home that was perfect for us before we put in any offers. In this crazy Ann Arbor market you want Deb in your corner and you don't want to settle on a house that you don't love.

I loved working with Deb. She helped me find the perfect home in these chaotic times. It was very important for me being out of state to be able to get a sense of each house without being able to see for myself. She helped me set the parameters for my search, gave me insightful information on each house, without being pushy and showed me the houses through FaceTime, Deb supported me throughout the whole process from writing the offer to closing. She is very knowledgeable of the market yet very accessible. I highly recommend her.
