  • About Deborah

    With a keen ability to understand a client’s needs, artfully handle negotiation processes with poise, and exude professional persistence with sellers, agents, brokers, and prospective buyers, Deborah Cowles has managed over 700 real estate transactions.

    Deborah has close to three decades working (and living) in the Newport Beach area, and is referred to as a “South Coast Insider.” This is due to the fact that she knows the area as well as she knows the Newport Bay—having been an avid rower who has competed at national levels since the late 80s. It is that very love for rowing—and its inherent aspect of competition—along with an insatiable drive to “deliver the dream” that has enabled her to further succeed in a tough real estate business. D.K. Cowles. Proof that who you work with matters.

    "Deborah Cowles is a Champion! Like every great champion, she has the experience, the strategy, and the focused determination to win. In less than 90 days from our first conversation with Deborah, we remodeled 2 bathrooms, 1 kitchen, painted, staged, and sold our house in Newport Beach. Not only that, our home sold within 3 days, over-ask, and with back-up buyers at the ready. What an absolute Champion!" - Rod & Carli D.

    "Deborah took the time to REALLY listen and understand my needs for a new property. The things that were important to me to make a move. She sold my house in a record time and then found me my new dream home. Deborah takes the time and let’s not forget, the patience, to ask the questions that really matter to her clients to help them determine if the property being looked at is “the one”. I couldn’t have done it without Deb and her many years of experience that all played into the seamless process." - Wendy W.

    "Deborah is an outstanding realtor. We are from out of state and unfamiliar with the housing market in the area. We spent one week with Deborah looking at homes. She gave us an excellent idea of neighborhoods and showed us several homes in each neighborhood giving us pros and cons of each. She recommended The Bluffs as a neighborhood that would be leafy and green as well as give us a sense of community which we desired. We are delighted with our new home and really could not have been happier with Deborah. I think anyone would benefit from her knowledge of the area and skills. She is easy to work with as well as having excellent interpersonal skills and rapport." - David & Ann G.

    "So what I really loved about working with Deborah is that she cut to the chase really fast. So she spent time with us at our existing house and looked to see what were the important elements for us for our new house, and I think it made a huge difference. She also understood some of the things we like to do...being outdoors, being near the water...so we were able to hone in on an area very quickly and narrow the field down within a short period of time." - Johanna & Aaron

    "We have lived out of the Newport area for several years now, wondering when to sell our Newport Heights rental. Deborah Cowles has been invaluable to us with current market data and real buyers sentiments. She also provided us very well researched and supported Broker Price Opinion. Not an easy thing with our totally rebuilt, high end, custom home, that is only 2,500 sq. ft. Comparable properties in the Heights are mostly either bigger or older. Anyway, Deborah’s report cut through the clutter with a sound, supportable valuation. When selling a home, correct pricing is pretty important to get right. Thanks Deborah!" - Larry & Linda P.
