People who know me, would describe me as a leader and master problem-solver. As a seasoned business professional with 30 years of sales and marketing experience from Fortune 100 companies to start-ups, I pride myself in my ability to quickly identify a problem, understand a customer’s needs and present the best solutions.
I started my career with MCI, a national telecommunications company where I was awarded the esteemed Chairman’s Inner Circle 100 award for exceeding sales goals and was ranked in the top 1% of sales professionals nationwide. During my time there, I created sales & marketing programs across various vertical markets resulting in a 30% growth within a $400M 13-state territory. I formed strategic relationships over the next decade with companies like Microsoft, Cisco and Homestore.com. I relocated to San Diego where I was named Vice President of Channel & Market Management at Tachyon, Inc. a global satellite broadband & data networking service provider. As the technology industry was rapidly changing, I learned to stay ahead of moving markets, launching my own strategic marketing company. I was hired by the City of San Diego to create a marketing plan to expand and bring business to downtown San Diego.
In 2002, my lifelong passion for real estate led me back to Colorado where I became a licensed real estate broker; Managing Partner of Icon Construction, a general contracting company; and Owner/Partner for Ascent Development, a semi-custom residential builder. It was through my family that I learned the power of real estate, firsthand. Working alongside my father since the age of eleven, I learned the finer points of owning and renovating our family’s rental properties. One of my fondest memories is hearing about the success of our 20-year tenant who paid for her undergraduate degree through her own rental income. It was at that moment when I realized the powerful relationship between real estate and building wealth.
Goal setting has always been second nature to me. From a young age, my curiosity has driven me to truly listen and learn about what motivates people. This curiosity translates into understanding the needs of my clients like no other Realtor. Since we opened our doors in 2008, clients of Park Properties Realty have praised my commitment to exceptional service and keen marketing acumen. My knowledge of building wealth through real estate has translated to success for my clients, both primary homeowners as well as investors. Additionally, my passion for Colorado’s diverse urban and suburban neighborhoods have resulted in numerous awards including 5280 Magazine’s Five Star Real Estate Agent in 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018, as well as being recognized as a Top-Rated Real Estate Agent with Xfinity on Demand. In 2017, Deb was awarded “Best Remodel” in Winona Lake, Indiana for her renovation of an old lake-side cottage.
I am a Certified Residential Specialist, an achievement appointed to the top 5% of brokers nationwide; and a graduate of the University of Illinois and Loyola University Chicago where I hold a B.A. and M.B.A, respectively. When I am not working, you’ll find me with my daughter, enjoying time in the kitchen creating a gourmet meal, taking a spin on the dance floor, or hitting the links.
"My husband and I have worked with Deb on numerous occasions, including our most recent excursion where we sold our house and bought a new one. We have always just jived so well with her that we saw no reason to look elsewhere for another realtor. She's upfront and honest with us and truly listens when we tell her what we are looking for. Her optimism was a huge help for us in this ultra-competitive market and she worked tirelessly to get the job done for us. We are so appreciative to have had her in our court. We recommend her to everyone we know and always sing her praises. We can't imagine working with another realtor!" -Sarah Homeowner
"We have been working with Deb for many years. Hands down, she is the best in the business! Deb will give you an HONEST evaluation of the property you may be interested in. She has a solid background in construction and design and is able point out potential problems and offer solutions so you can better understand costs associated with a property and its hidden potential. She knows the market inside and out and her input is invaluable. She will steer you away from a less desirable property even if it means a smaller commission and more work for her. (For our current home, we looked at 94 properties!) She is a master negotiator and was able to get us a price less than market value. (Pretty impressive in this market). Throughout the buying process, she was in complete control moving the sale along. This was no easy feat since the other Broker was making things quite difficult. Deb was able to step in and take care of items that the other Broker neglected. This was especially helpful for the sellers since they had requested a quick, 3-week close. I could really go on for days about her experience, expertise and professionalism. Suffice it to say, I would NEVER consider buying or selling without her on my side." -Jen & Troy Home Buyer
"Deb exceeded our expectations as a realtor in the Denver area. Her knowledge of the properties in the area was excellent. After getting to know our likes and dislikes she was able to find homes that fit our desires. Once we selected a home, her knowledge of the pricing in the area allowed us to purchase the home below asking in a very hot market. When I had any questions during the closing process they we answered immediately. Deb gets things done. I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase in the Denver area." -Rob & Ashley Homeowner
