Unassailably Honest and Ethical
Listing a house for sale during the COVID-19 crisis is not for the faint of heart. Fortunately, I had the support of Deborah Laggini, whose market acumen, determination, and hard work helped me navigate through the uncertainty of this difficult time. Deborah does her research and provides excellent insight based on real comparables, not just market generalities. She is extremely thorough and diligent throughout the entire listing and sales process and is unassailably honest and ethical. Deborah is also personable and easy to work with, which proved invaluable in dealing with the challenges of these extremely uncertain times. I would unconditionally recommend Deborah and her associates to anyone selling or buying a home in the Annapolis area.
Ellen Ewart, Annapolis
Smart and Compassionate
Deborah’s expertise in the industry and knowledge of the area was imperative to our successful quick sale of our home and purchase of a new one all within 90 days. Her smart and compassionate approach made a series of very difficult decisions, work plans, and transactions seamlessly come together in the purchase of our forever home. She has the utmost respect for her clients and their decisions and is always extremely professional. We could not have accomplished our real estate goals so effectively and efficiently without Deborah and highly recommend her in any of your real estate endeavors.
Keith and Keely Orndorff, Davidsonville
Simply The Finest and Most Outstanding Realtor
Deborah Laggini is simply the finest and most outstanding realtor we have worked with over the past 30 years and 5 house purchases/4 house sales. She is a superb realtor with a tireless work ethic who has amazing attention to detail. She ensured that our house search and house purchase went smoothly and she was always accessible. Deb has continued to aid us in many ways to include excellent referrals for house repairs/remodeling which has continued long after our purchase. As the direct result of her efforts, we are now living in our dream house! In summary, if you are moving to Maryland, you want her as your realtor!
Joe and Pam Brennan, Annapolis
Tenacious and Absolutely the Best
Deborah Laggini was absolutely the best real estate agent we have worked with during our nine separate moves while in the military. Her understanding of our needs and dedication to finding our perfect home were outstanding. Deborah is not just a tenacious representative she is also a fantastic person and will be a life-long friend
Robert F. Booth, Colonel USAF- Annapolis
Mind-Blowing Marketing Campaign
Several years ago we told Deborah Laggini that we were starting to think about downsizing. Without any contract, she began to keep us informed about the real estate market, answering all our questions and giving advice, and was generous with her time to show us properties whenever we asked. We were clearly not ready, but she treated us as if we were her best clients for years. When we eventually decided it was time, we contracted with her to both find our new home and sell our existing one. Well, it didn’t take long. She found us two perfect choices for our new home and negotiated unique contingent contracts allowing us time to sell our house. Then she orchestrated a mind-blowing marketing campaign including staging, pictures, and even a drone to take videos of the waterfront and landscaping, and a beautiful brochure. She contacted her personal network of high end realtors, and within days our house was under contract for almost full price. She sold our house before it was even listed on the MRS! During the whirlwind next 30 days she stayed on top of every detail of selling and buying, home inspections, repairs, paperwork, closing – everything. It was the best real estate experience we have had in our 40 years of moving around the country. We could not have had a better or more successful home selling and buying experience with Deborah as our agent. And she is so nice that you can’t help wishing it wouldn’t end!
John and Trina Burks, Annapolis
Honest. Thorough. Competent
It was a chance meeting. Almost 10 years ago I called L&F seeking information about some homes in the Annapolis area. And, the rest is history. Deborah negotiated sales of a property on our behalf and helped us arrange a purchase all the while we were in the U.K. After all these years, she always follows up with us and has even taken some time to show me a house or two that I have considered over the years. Honest. Thorough. Competent. And, down right lovely person! If you need a great realtor–Deborah is someone I highly recommend!
Stephanie Rank, Severna Park
Dedicated and Responsive
Deborah is very dedicated and responsive to us. Our overall buying experience was complicated, but Deborah made it as smooth as possible. She even worked with us to get a new house under contract within three days when a previous contract was not honored by the sellers.
Ron and Staci Martin, Davidsonville
We Felt Secure Because of Deborah’s Confidence, Experience and Genuine Caring
Deborah Laggini and her associates were amazing partners with us in the sale of our home in Cape St. Claire, Annapolis. We have history with her in purchasing another property 10 years ago. With selling our home this year Deborah gave us practical advice of changes/improvements to make the entire house more attractive to buyers. We followed her advice and it made a huge impact. The staging of our home was fun and easy. The photographer was quick and every picture highlighted the love and care we’d given our home for 20 years. Deborah again gave us advice about pricing our home that was aggressive yet very practical to sell. Our home sold in 1.5 days during Super Bowl weekend! We felt secure with every step of the sale process of our home because of Deborah’s confidence, experience and genuine caring for us as her clients and enthusiasm to support us in moving forward in life.
Ron and Colette McKie, Annapolis
Trust Her Completely
Deborah Laggini has been my realtor for many years. She has helped me at both purchasing and selling real estate. She has excellent knowledge of all aspects of real estate and she has always given me good honest advice based on her experience. Her staff has been very helpful with supporting the transactions as well. I trust her completely and recommend her to anyone buying or selling a property or home.
Nelson Nazario, Annapolis
Deborah has been a super agent for us as buyers. She knows the area and the factors that determine value, she reads her buyers well for what is important to them, and she constantly refines her focus to match buyer and property. She is always on the clock, responding to all questions quickly.
She knows local pros and handles inspections, etc., easily. I would gladly recommend her to others; she is the first person we will call for real estate assistance in the Annapolis area in the future.
Jay and Virginia Mitchell, Stevensville
Always on Top of Everything
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Deborah Laggini. I worked with Deborah to sell my last home and to buy the one I’m living in now.
Deborah was always on top of everything. She called and emailed me daily which kept me well informed of what was going on. She followed up on things religiously and when we were under contract, she became like a team coach to me, the buyers, the other realtors who were involved, and the lenders.
At one point, the settlement became difficult, and without her swift response, it would have never happened. Whether you are selling or buying a home, I give her my highest recommendation
Charles Fate – Annapolis and Davidsonville
Supportive, Tireless, and a True Professional
Deborah was our agent for a particularly complex purchase of a home in Davidsonville. She was supportive, tireless, and a true professional. She was very good at keeping us informed at every stage of the process and we felt empowered with her on our side. She is thorough, a talented negotiator, and very easy to work with. Thank you so much!
Patrick and Victoria Flood – Davidsonville
Expert in the Market
Our family was relocating to the Annapolis area from out of state, we had one month to find the house of our dreams, in the perfect neighborhood. We knew our expectations were high and a bit unrealistic, but Deborah delivered! She kept us informed of all new houses coming on the market, worked with our schedules as we were visiting from out of state, and within two weeks we found the perfect home. She managed the offer and sales process with precision and we moved in just a few weeks later. I highly recommend Deborah, she is great to work with and an expert in the market.
Keely Conley – Davidsonville
She Would Not Give Up!
Deborah was absolutely wonderful! The house we were looking into buying was our first home, and at one point, we hit a major snag in the purchasing process. The obstacle was so great, I thought there would be absolutely no way we were going to get the house we were really wanting. But somehow, Deborah kept with it and was persistent and she was able to work around the issue. I was totally amazed at her. She would not give up! Also, she was quick with responding to my calls or emails, and was great with communicating with us whenever an issue would arise. Also, after we bought the house, the washer quit on us and the warranty company was trying to get out of paying for it. I got so frustrated with them, that I contacted Deborah, who then contacted the warranty company, and they finally came through. This was because of her. She also would quickly answer any questions I had, even after we were done with the house-selling process. She is wonderful and I would recommend her to anyone. My husband and I were first time home buyers, so we knew nothing, but she was so patient with us when we had questions or didn’t understand a certain process.
Kellie Corcoran – Edgewater
Contract in Seven Days
Deborah Laggini is a true professional. She was very patient with us as we worked through the process of deciding if we really wanted to sell our home of 24 years. After a year, she politely reached out again and we listed the home. We had a contract in seven days. She was great at negotiating the details with the buyers. The entire process was as smooth as it could have been thanks to Deborah and her team

Knowledgeable in All Aspects of the Building Process
My wife and I had been looking for property to build a house on for several years…completely on our own with no real estate agent involved. Why would we need one, we have the internet right? That thought couldn’t have been further from the truth.
Through our builder we were introduced to Deborah Laggini, an Annapolis agent that we were told was very familiar with land being sold in Anne Arundel county, waterfront property and the home building process in general.
Our success with locating a property was not immediate, we still searched for well over a year because we were very focused on an area of interest. Deborah had taken the time to gather all our requirements and set up searches that provided immediate notifications when new properties came on the market. It was through these searches that we stumble upon our property. Deborah diligently worked with the selling agent and was able
to negotiate a very good deal, quickly drafted all the necessary paperwork, and setup what was probably the quickest and easiest settlement I have ever experienced.
Her knowledge of the building process provided insights into the questions that needed to be answered during the feasibility study as well as leveraging the network of people she knew throughout the county. Again, something we could have never of accomplished on our own. Luckily for us things worked out, but I can imagine a situation where the right questions are not asked and a buyer ends up with a property that will not accommodate the house they want to build or there are conditions preventing its constructions. No one wants to find that out after a property is purchased.
Deborah’s commitment to our project extended beyond the sale of the lot. She knew we were having issues conveying our vision to the builder and suggested that we meet with an architect to help rectify the situation. Again, this was something we didn’t think we needed since we had building plans already. Because of her knowledge of the industry she introduced us to a
local architect that specialized in waterfront homes. We would have NEVER of thought this was necessary, but having taken her advice we have taken our project to another level, without incurring significant costs. We owe our success thus far to Deborah and the knowledge she possesses in the real estate industry, both in regards to buying and selling property, as well as all aspects of the home building process. We couldn’t give Deborah high enough accolades and we would recommend her to anyone in the Annapolis area….you won’t be disappointed.
Kenny and Robin Grim – Edgewater
Excellent Negotiating Skills and Immediate in her Response
Deborah represented me both in the selling of my home and the purchase of a new home. She is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the real estate process. She has excellent negotiating skills and she was immediate in her response to my needs as both a buyer and a seller at the same time.
Linda Masterson – Crownsville
Professional and Effective – We Will Highly Recommend Her
Deborah did a very professional and effective job in the sale of our Davidsonville home. She was able to locate a buyer in a few weeks, while other homes on our street (with other Realtors) were still for sale months after we have moved. Deborah did an excellent job and we will highly recommend her to anyone we know looking for a real estate agent.
Terry Crabtree – Davidsonville
Completely Professional Yet Personally Compassionate
I’ve known Deborah for many years, and have worked with her twice, once on a happy occasion – the purchase of our new home (we love it!) and once on a rather difficult occasion, the sale of my mother’s home after her death. Deborah has always been completely professional and yet personally compassionate, attentive, accessible, thorough, and detail oriented. Both closings went through without a hitch!
Pat DeJacma – Centreville
Above and Beyond in Guiding Me Through the Process
As a first-time homebuyer, I was so glad to have Deborah on my team! She really went above and beyond in helping me to think through what I really wanted in a home and in guiding me through the whole process. I’m so pleased with the house I purchased, and I will highly recommend Deborah to everyone I know who is looking for an Annapolis realtor.
Kevin Galloway – Annapolis
An Expert in the Selling Process
Bob and I were more than impressed with our first meeting, when Deborah brought a copy of her portfolio and resume – wow! Neither of us had ever had a realtor who took us to view competing properties for sale, to help us price our home accordingly. This was a huge help! Deborah’s insight to bring in a professional stager was truly eye-opening and totally paid off for us. In fact, I still am trying to practice the things I learned from that experience as I’m decorating our new house. The photographer Deborah uses is top notch and made our house look so gorgeous in the photos that it was hard to believe we actually lived there! The whole process of selling our house was handled so expertly from day-one through settlement. We could never have been able to move so quickly on buying our next house here in North Carolina had it not been for Deborah’s expertise through all phases of the selling process. People cannot believe that we had a contract on our house only eight days after it went active in the market!!!
If we had to sum all of this up we would say, “take the worry out of selling… call Deborah Laggini of Long and Foster – this realtor delivers!” I will definitely always tell any of my friends in Maryland who will be looking to sell (or buy) to call Deborah.
Bob and Tammy Padgett – Annapolis
Highest Integrity and Can-Do Attitude
I cannot say enough about Deborah. As a realtor, she brings the highest integrity and can-do attitude to her work. As a person, she is a great listener and that serves her clients well as she works with people when they are making an important life decision that is emotional as well as somewhat intimidating. She has helped us buy and sell a house and I would never go to anyone else. I highly recommend her!
Alicia Rodriguez – Severna Park
Tireless in her Quest to Help her Clients
Deborah is tireless in her quest to help her clients. She has focused on understanding our needs and finding the right solutions for us. Even without a guarantee of a transaction and compensation, she has helped us meet with architects and builders, acting almost like a project manager, in assisting us in completing our home building project. She has helped friends of ours navigate a challenging market resulting in the sale of their home and a purchase of another. Top qualities: great results, personable, high integrity.
Steve Horn – Annapolis
After many years of purchasing homes, Deborah was a refreshing discovery. She feels less like an agent and more like a close friend trying to help you find your perfect home. Deborah is extremely competent, sincere and compassionate. She is quick in evaluating exactly what your needs are and her confidence eases the stress and makes it an adventure.
Korry Hetherington – Edgewater
As Trustee of a private Estate Trust, I have used Deborah’s real-estate expertise and guidance for several properties, a forty (40) acre estate and two waterfront lots. The complexity of these properties required a great deal of involvement on the part of the Realtor. Deborah’s real-estate experience, marketing knowledge and vast industry-related contacts, such as builders, land development engineers, surveyors, and a host of others have been immeasurable. She as always made herself available and most importantly has been consistently able to provide positive results. I truly think of Deborah not only as an outstanding Realtor but as a team member as well.
Michael Riedal – Annapolis
We came to town from Nevada to look at the area before our potential move. We were driving around looking at neighborhoods when we pulled a flyer from a box in front of a house that looked interesting. We knew no realtors in town, so we decided to give the realtor a call. It was Deborah Laggini. We were told most realtors don’t return your calls, so if you receive a call back, pay attention. We called and left a message, and she called back before we even got out of the neighborhood. She was very attentive and was willing to help us in our search. We kept in close touch from across the country until we were ready to buy. When we returned to look seriously, Deborah had set up appointments and was a real advocate for us. She was such a trooper–showing houses in the big snow storm of 2010. Her co-workers teased her for attempting to get out, but she sold a house that day. The follow up was also fantastic. She fought for us all the way–from negotiating the price to the inspections. The relationship didn’t end with the purchase of the home. We just received a copy of the HUD-1 settlement statement so we could prepare our taxes without having to search for paperwork! We would highly recommend Deborah Laggini for any real-estate needs.
Susan and Thane Barnes – Severna Park
Explores All Possibilities
Mark and I met Deborah during an open house. We were in the beginning process of looking for a home to purchase. We were interested in the house she was showing but had many questions, including the type of deal that the sellers would accept, and, the probability and cost of completing various improvements in the home. On both accounts Deborah explored all possibilities and even had a contractor come out and look at the house so she could provide a more accurate explanation. From a sellers perspective, this is the type of person I want showing my house. We did not purchase that home but were so impressed with her that we decided to hire her as our realtor. We were having difficulty finding something in our price range that we liked. Deborah provided us with automatic updates of all new listings in our price range as they came up in the MLS. We finally found the right home with Deborah’s help and closed without incident. Mark and I have purchased and sold several homes through the years and can honestly attest that the level of PERSONAL service provided by Deborah was outstanding. Many realtors, use assistants, and seem TOO busy to spend time until it becomes time to close the property or get a new listing. Shortly after we closed Deborah contacted us to make sure we were satisfied with our home and that there were no outstanding issues to be addressed. To this day she continues to stay in contact.
Amy and Mark Harrison – Crownsville
“Go-to” Person for Real Estate Matters
I’ve known and worked with Deborah Laggini over the course of several years. She has been my “go-to” person for real estate matters. When asked to recommend a realtor I always recommend Deborah. Why? Because I have yet to meet a realtor who exudes the professionalism and the level of commitment to her client that I see in Deborah. She is a great listener and an advocate for her client navigating the complexities of home buying with grace. I wholeheartedly recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell property in Anne Arundel County.

Found the Cottage of Our Dreams on the Water

Solid Choice for Representing Folks in Purchasing and Selling Property
One lazy Sunday morning, we knocked on the door of a lovely house in Davidsonville thinking that it was an open house. We were greeted by the owner who very tactfully pointed out that we were a day late; however, she welcomed us into her property and gave us the tour. As it turned out, the homeowner was Deborah and I, feeling like an idiot, undertook to engage Deborah for my forthcoming house purchase as gratitude for her willingness to show us around, albeit a Sunday and 24 hours late! What started as a chance encounter proved to be a wise course as Deborah has very competently represented my interests in two subsequent house transactions and I can truthfully say that she has not only acted with superior professionalism but has also been a great resource for those little extra tips and elements of support that make the process much easier. I have and will continue to recommend Deborah as a solid choice for representing folks in purchasing and selling property in our area.
Dean Bromiley – Annapolis
Highly Recommend Deborah Laggini for Any Referrals You May Need to Sell Property
I recently was responsible for selling 3 estate homes in 2 states and did not know where to begin to find the right realtor to work with. I called Deborah and asked if she could help me by giving me referrals for local realtors. I gave her the information and my needs and in a few days I had 3 fabulous realtors to work with. They were quick to respond and had experience in working with estate sales. Even, better, their service was beyond what I could have expected as they handled many items for me that I could not easily handle long distance. All 3 homes had contracts within 2 months – amazing in this market! Deborah, besides connecting me with these fabulous realtors, also stayed in touch with me and them to be sure that all was going smoothly. I highly recommend Deborah Laggini for any referrals you may need to sell property.
Marguerite Zdenek – Bedminister, NJ

Colette McKie – Annapolis
Tremendous Work Ethic
Deborah Laggini works as a real estate agent in an extremely professional and efficient manner. She has a tremendous work ethic, and is very honest and straightforward – which is what I have treasured the most from interacting with her. Deborah answered numerous intricate questions for me concerning the purchase of a home for my wife Cathie and me some time ago. Her honesty and knowledge of the details helped me survive the closing. Deborah’s honesty and kindness made me look to her on a recent real estate project. This project is going extremely well and her professional helpfulness has grown into a nice friendship. Thanks Deborah.

Deborah was honest, professional and knowledgeable. We used her to sell our house as well as represent us to buy our new one. I would use her anytime I had a real estate transaction.
Michael Lawrence – Severna Park
Hard Working and Dedicated
My husband and I met Deborah when were out looking for open house events. Deborah was very knowledgeable about the real estate market and first time homebuyers’ needs and concerns. We only had seven days to find a house, and Deborah was courageous enough to show us 40 homes in seven days with a smile on her face the entire time. I don’t know how she did it, but we managed to find a wonderful home that met our needs in the price that we wanted in record time! Our first time home buyer experience was wonderful, and I truly believe it was all because of the hard work and dedication from Deborah
Shiloh Smith – Crofton
Hands-on and Attentive

Wish We Had Picked Deborah First!
If you are selling a home in Davidsonville or Annapolis/surrounding area…. get Deborah as your agent! After a frustrating five and half months with another agent, we cancelled with the other agent and got Deborah to sell our home. In only eight days we had a contract! In my opinion, Davidsonville is a difficult place to sell a home without extensive local knowledge, even a relatively new home in perfect shape. Deborah has lived in the area, has an extensive network of contacts, and is the first person you should consider as your agent. Superb local knowledge, continuous (daily) communication with the sellers, unmatched expertise and responsiveness. We were delighted with Deborah and only wish we had picked her first.
