Client Testimonials

Thank you to Teresa Drake and Larry Chapman for their patience, guidance and wisdom throughout this whole process. Although Teresa sold my house and handled all the details perfectly, the love and friendship I received was invaluable. They made a hard decision, at the beginning to sell my custom-built forever home, ended up making me feel extremely blessed and happy to start the next chapter in my life.

Many thanks dear friends. Couldn’t have made it to this point without you!

Our work assignment had taken us from California to the Longview / Hallsville area. We reached out to several different REALTORs with little to no response. Teresa was the most responsive person, listened specifically to what we were looking for and found us different properties to consider, with one of them being in Hallsville.

Once work assignment was completed, we reached out to her again to sell and were under contract in 30 days (now sold!). She is very professional and timely in her correspondence, and a very hard worker.

As far as I am concerned, Teresa is the only person in this area I would use if I was looking for another property.

Jimmy Robberson

Teresa is extremely accessible and responsive, and really made us feel that she genuinely had our best interest at heart. Her market expertise as well as her compassion for my mother's difficult transition made the process as much of a breeze as possible.

Teresa is wonderful and you'd be doing yourself a disservice not to hire her! 

Marion Fuller

Well, it's official! We've completed another chapter in life today. We closed on our house in Hallsville this afternoon.

It's sad, but exciting! We miss Hallsville and all of our friends, but we know that we made the right decision to move back home. We are so thankful to Teresa Drake and Larry Chapman of Drake Chapman Realty for there service. I can't say enough great things about this company! If you ever need a great realtor in East Texas, they're the best!

Tim and Donna Hatten

We have friends and others we know that are such GREAT realtors, but we decided to go with someone we did not know!!Larry Chapman was the absolute most positive, hardworking, fun person to work with. Showed our house first day on Market and contract four days later ?? best decision we could have made was to go with Drake Chapman Real Estate ... Larry treated us like friends and not just our Agent, so I wanted to give a shout out if anyone is looking to get your house sold fast, by a great group of people!! Oh and Bonus we sold to a Beautiful family who I know will make great memories as we did.

Melanie Long

Teresa was a great resource for staging the home while we were still living in it. She suggested a listing price that was on target. A contract was signed in 2 weeks but Teresa did not stop working. She kept track and informed me on the progress. She went above and beyond to make sure everything was on schedule. Without her attention to detail AFTER the sale, the deal may have fallen through. She did all this work on a house that sold for $110,000.

Her professionalism and dedication were very much appreciated. 

Allen Monholland

Teresa was very helpful and accommodating to us throughout the home buying process. Our realtor was out of Dallas and Teresa made sure to help us out here locally as much as she could.

Would definitely recommend Teresa & Larry. Awesome people.

Jessica Persilver

Debra sold my home in Hallsville a few months ago. She did it all! Debra made selling my home as simple as it can be. I don't know much about real estate - Debra was patient and very knowledgeable. She took the time to explain and answer every question I had.

She goes above and beyond for her clients. I highly recommend Debra Hoch to be your Realtor!

Amanda Boyle

Debra is the best and everyone needs to use her. She's very knowledgable, patient and has a great personality which is very helpful during the stressful time of house buying. I absolutely love her and will use her again when I decide to sell/buy again.

Jocelyn Carrizales

I have both bought and sold a home with Debra. She has tons of experience and knows the local area very well. She will give you no-nonsense advice in all situations and always protects your interests. Hire Debra and you will sell your home or find the one you need. I promise!

Emily Richeson

I would recommend Debra E Hoch to anyone trying to find a home. Debra was always willing to show us a location at anytime. She is very knowledgeable of real estate in the Longview area and will listen to her clients and try to find them a house that fits their needs.

Willard and Carla Templeman

My husband and I are currently looking for a house and Debra Hoch has gone over and above any other realtor we've worked with. She truly has our best interest in mind and works non stop in getting us exactly what we want. Her extensive knowledge in not only the area, but of the rules, laws and the whole house hunting process truly will impress even the most cynical of clients. I won't use another realtor ever again! Love her!

Tonya and Joey Tomlinson

The best ! Both Larry and Teresa are amazing business people. We sold a spec house that became complicated VA loan. They worked tirelessly on paperwork and out in the field for us. They kept us up to date on all the details . They are professional and very knowledgeable.

We would recommend them and will be using there services again.

Olivia Walker Stout

Drake Chapman Real Estate is a wonderful company and very knowledgeable of the area market. They are very dedicated to their jobs, and will do everything they can to find you exactly what you're looking for, for the price you're looking for. We've had a great experience with Teresa Drake with buying our first home, then selling it years later, and then buying our 2nd home.

Cody Howard

If you could cross breed a realtor and a magician, Debra E. Hoch would be the result. From the word go, she was on top of our house hunting. We didn't have much time to look at houses in the area, so Debra cleared her weekend and we visited thirty (30) houses in thirty four (34) hours. We were relocating due to a new job three hours away from our home with our ten month old son and never had to worry about a thing with the realtor we chose.

When she says she is flying low, you know that she has the perfect negotiation strategy planned or realtor trick up her sleeve.

Adam Baxter

Great to work with! Honest and has the clients best interest at heart! Advertised the listing in numerous places and was very aggressive in getting it shown and in the eye of everyone. My house was shown the 2nd day it was listed! Had an offer with in a week! Great experience!

Gynger Oden

Great to work with. Came and evaluated my home to give me some things to do to make it sell quicker. Explained the whole process to me and kept me updated weekly of what was going on ex.showings, feed back, etc.

Gwen Fontenot

Teresa is great to work with, very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. My house sold quickly and without complications. I would highly recommend Teresa for your real estate needs.

Candy Dubland

Afternoon Larry!

I don't expect you to remember me cause you deal with tons of people but you helped my husband (Steven) and I find our first home in Gladewater on the Challenge Golf Course back in August of 2010. We have loved every second in it and could not have purchased it without your guidance and expertise. I've mentioned to you in the past about my mother trying to sell her condo in Austin. Well, it closed today!! So, she is looking to buy up here in our neck of the woods. Unfortunately,

Thanks again! Hope you are having a great selling day!!

Shelley Anderson

Debra Hoch worked extremely hard for us. went the extra mile--late nights/weekends/holidays to help us make our dream property/house/shop happen. Even when obstacles came up she was always "Johnny on the spot" to handle them--sometimes even before we were aware of them! Would DEFINITELY use her again and highly recommend her!
