    About Debra

    After 40 years of representing buyers and sellers in Piedmont, Oakland, and Berkeley, I continue to thrive on the diversity and challenges of my career. 

    When I lived in Toronto, Canada, my prior work involved serving the sales force of Crown Life Insurance with support materials and incentive sales campaigns. Follow up was crucial. The skills I developed benefited me after I moved to the Bay Area and transitioned into real estate. I have a true passion for working with people.

    You can imagine the changes I have experienced since I started my career in 1978. Advances in technology have reinvented the real estate industry. In order to counsel my clients with the highest standard of care, I constantly seek out advanced education to ensure I maintain a leading edge in the real estate market. Not only have I stayed current, but also I am ePRO certified. My quick thinking, knowledge of the inner east bay, along with my skills in creative marketing, risk management and negotiating, allow me to provide my clients with unparalleled service. 

    As the top producer for all 28 offices of a well-known franchise for many years, I am now mindful of the quality and balance in my life and work. Personalized service is my biggest investment and my clients know they are #1. I want my clients to know that while working with me, I am fully focused on them. They can depend on my availability and skills to help them in their real estate needs. 

    Being entrusted to handle the purchase or sale of what is usually the largest financial asset for most people is exciting for me because I know that my knowledge and skills will be an influential part of their experience and results. As my past clients will attest, I am personally involved in each transaction, hands-on, enthusiastic, and proactive to get things done. When you hire me, you get me 100 percent.

    My clients can depend upon me to be their advocate because I am truly honest and committed to do what is in their best interest. People are my business - not properties. 

    It is rewarding to have so many repeat clients and referrals from past clients and friends - which in itself is my ultimate motivation. Each time I receive a referral, it is the utmost compliment.

    In my personal life, I enjoy being outdoors. Among my hobbies are hiking, cycling, snowshoeing, and of course traveling. Living in the bay area has been such a wonderful experience and has allowed me to explore these passions.
