Teacher and friend!
When we started looking around we knew absolutely nothing. You were a teacher, a friend and a Realtor to us. You were sensitive to our needs. You took all possible steps to ensure that we got the house that we dreamed about. You have left an indelible mark in our lives not because you were the Realtor who helped us get our first house but because of the person you are.
“Debra’s solution held the sale together”
Debra recently helped me sell my home in Willow Glen. Due to an unforeseen issue that arose on my part, the transaction almost fell apart but Debra was able to formulate a solution that held the sale together and met my needs as well as those of the buyer.

“Debra made everything so easy”
We had been renting our house while living on the east coast. The thought of trying to sell from far away was intimidating but Debra made everything so easy for us. She was kind, friendly, and extremely hard working and always got back to us promptly regardless of the time of day.
The Brown Family, sellers of rental property
“She is backed by an accomplished team”
Debra maintained constant communication insuring all details were addressed in the timeliest manner. Her project management and critical thinking skills shined brightly. It’s obvious she really knows her profession, she’s backed by a very accomplished team, and she’s ready to face up to most any problem.
David and Claire White, relocated sellers
“Debra does what’s best for her client”
Debra took the time to talk with me and understand the root of my concerns and long term goals. Debra was truly motivated to help me do what was best for my financial situation regardless of whether it closed a sale that day.
Jessica, Happy seller and new homeowner
“By far, my easiest purchase yet.”
When it came time to make the offer, I feel I was successful because of all the prep Debra had done. My fourth home purchase and by far one of the easier ones, even in a competitive market!

We can all learn from history. My early years provide a key to the values that I hold dear both professionally and personally and are a strong influence in how my real estate team serves you. When I was a little girl, I spent an afternoon baking cupcakes for a slumber party that I wasn’t invited to. My family thought that was a bit weird. Yet for me, the concept of contribution seemed natural and came from my heart. Even today I volunteer with Team in Training, provide support to my senior parents; and my real estate team volunteers time with various organizations and we serve as mentors to friends and business associates. In those youthful days, my mom would say that I asked far too many questions. It seemed to her that my overly inquisitive nature was indicative of a 30 year old mind trapped in the body of a child. Today our team serves you better by asking insightful questions that impact not only the sale or purchase itself, but you and your life.
Have you ever been to a company picnic? Parents socialize, kids play games, and everyone eats a few hot dogs. At my Dad’s company picnics, you’d find me wandering off on my own hiking the beautiful trails in the park. And at Dads corporate open house, you’d find me flying (and crashing) aerospace simulators. The point is that while I joined the group like everyone else, I tended to try things other folks weren’t doing and had a richer experience as a result. Our goal is to provide you with the quality information you want. We will address not just buying or selling a home , but we’ll make you aware of key issues you may not know you need to know. We understand that if you have all the right information, you'll make good decisions for yourself. We're here to advise you, not to "sell you". That might be a bit different than what your used to, and we're proud of that!
