Where I've come from: Growing up, I always had a passion for learning and helping people. From the time that I was 15 years old I have held jobs in Sales and Customer Service. Doing everything from being a receptionist for a veterinarian office at 15, to a Recruiting Executive, to working at a non-profit, to selling radio advertising, to being a Sales Executive, to being a Call Center manager, to teaching Intro to Health at MSU, and waitressing to put myself through college and grad school...you name it, I've done it. Not to give my age away too much but that is almost 35 years of Customer Service and Sales experience. For me, it's in my blood and it's what I pride myself on. I was always searching for what felt right...even getting my Masters Degree in Community Health. In 2014, everything changed. I found real estate. Without a doubt, real estate is my calling and true passion. Everything I have done in the past brought me to where I am today. Each day I get to educate and help clients start new and exciting chapters in their lives. I know I've found my passion when I am literally shocked every day that I actually get to do this for a living. Real estate is like breathing to me.
Business model: Honesty and ethics have always been paramount to me. Building long term relationships is always my goal and I'm fortunate that my clients generally end up being personal friends. I tell each client when I first meet them that I will tell them the good, the bad and the ugly as I see things. I want them to have the full picture, whether buying or selling. I am not out for a sale, just for a sale. My goal in each and every transaction is to be there for my clients and educate them, find the house that's right for them, regardless how long it takes. If they are selling, I work my tail off to get them the best price in the least amount of time. I work for my clients as though I was working my family and they often feel like family to me at the end of the process.
More about me: I love a challenge!!! I've jumped out of a perfectly good air plane...twice, I've completed a marathon, two half-marathons and other distance runs as well as the very muddy "Warrior Dash". I've lobbied on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., I rode my Road King to Sturgis 1½ times (long story), I am in "Who's Who Among American College Students"...just to name a few fun things. I have two crazy cats at home and a wonderful boyfriend, each of which keep me on my toes!!! I still love to run and be active and get out on the bike and explore. And did I mention, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE real estate and helping people?!!! If you want an agent who will keep you in the loop the entire time, who will tell you how it is...good, bad or ugly, who will return your calls, who will answer ALL of your questions, please give me a call. I look forward to working with you to help find the best home that will not only meet your needs but also your lifestyle. I believe that my customer service and work ethic will shine through! Best yet, I have a wonderful team who not only supports each other and all of our clients. #DebbieOGetsItDone
