For over 20 years I've worked as a Real Estate Investor, Property Manager, IBEW Electrician and business owner. Born in California, I relocated with my family to the beautiful Hudson Valley over twenty-five years ago. Having worked in the construction industry, I bring a strong knowledge of building construction, electrical applications, and the related appliances such as furnaces, water heaters and everything it takes to make a house a home, to the real estate industry.   


In 1979, I became the first woman ever accepted into the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 631 of Newburgh, NY and in 1991 I served as a Safety Director with Perecca Electric Company, Inc. Working on the property management side of Real Estate has given me a great amount of experience in selling properties from the standpoint of owners, as well as working as an agent for owners. 


I am  dedicated to making the sale or purchase of my client's property a positive experience and am actively involved in all aspects of the transaction - from initial consultation to close. I make sure to maintain constant communication and build strong relationship with my clients. As such, the majority of my business is generated through satisfied and referred clients. As a real estate professional and member of the National Association of Realtors, my goal is to provide my clients with exceptional service, so that I can not only meet, but exceed their expectations. 

Trust, service, experience, knowledge, connection with banks, mortgage brokers, attorneys, inspectors, contractors and good negotiation skills all contribute to the service you deserve. I promise to seamlessly guide you through the process, and together we can make your dream home a reality. 


 When I am not in my office working, I enjoy participating in civic and community groups such as the Highland Rotary, New Paltz Chamber of Commerce, Southern Ulster Chamber of Commerce and Schools Are for Everyone. I enjoy exploring the rail trail with my dogs, taking pictures of nature and animals, gardening, and golfing on the luscious greens of the Hudson Valley. 

Five Star Real Estate Professional Award winners represent fewer than 4% of real estate agents in the Hudson Valley area. They have proven to be outstanding in their field by receiving high client satisfaction ratings and exceeding objective criteria involving experience, production levels and disciplinary history. 

Debra has won the Five Star Real Estate Award in 2013, 2014, & 2015.
