Helping people find their dream home is my dream job.

I have lived in Portland for 18 years and consider Portland my adopted home. I got into real estate after working in the trenches of social work for many years. As a result of my background in social work and servicing my clients’ every changing needs, I bring with me great communication skills and a deep caring and understand of the needs of my clients. I love the varied architecture that Portland has to offer. I love getting to know my clients and helping them discover which kinds of homes and neighborhoods best meet their needs.

I don’t see myself as a salesperson. Rather, I am a service professional. I bring my caring nature to my work and I am always there for my clients.

I feel so fortunate to have found Living Room Realty. At the brokerage, I collaborate with a diverse team of marketing professionals in order to capture the emotion of every home that I list. The marketing materials produced are the most beautiful and authentic way to sell your home and get the most out of your listing.

When I am not at the office or out with clients, you can find me hiking, reading, and cooking. I currently live in close-in SW Portland with my husband Chris, and our two kids Elias (11) and Inez (8).

Debra's Testimonials

Debra was a wonderful help while buying my home!. She organized all the different contractors to do the inspection and was truly a trusted advisor when considering all the factors of different homes we looked at and finally deciding to buy my home. Debra was extremely responsive to my needs, warm, helpful, understanding and patient. She answered all my questions quickly and explained the entire process in English! I highly recommend working with her.

Debra is an amazing, compassionate, reliable and knowledgable realtor. I had to sell my home as quick as possible right around Christmas and Debra was so timely with getting my house photographed and listed right away. She was always available for my silly questions and very compassionate when it came to my concerns. She was proactive in having an open house and communicating with buyers realtors. I received many offers over asking price and enjoyed having her walk through all of the offers with me. I appreciate that she was in constant communication with me through every step. I strongly recommend Debra to anyone in the Portland area looking to sell or purchase a home.
