About Deborah

I have always loved the water. The sounds, the smells, the wildlife, there is just nothing else like being part of it!  As a Northern California native, I spent most of my youth living along the Monterey Bay sailing, scuba diving and simply enjoying the beach for all it has to offer.  After getting my degree in Marine Biology I moved to Lake Tahoe where I learned to love the beauty of the mountains and lakeside living equally. Working at Squaw Valley with people from around the World fostered my desire to help them explore their environment and improve the way they lived.  A career in hospitality, real estate and design followed.

Back to school I went to get my degree in Interior Architecture & Design.  24 years ago I followed my career path to Raleigh, and then my heart to Wilmington. With one daughter and a slew of rescue animals in tow, my family moved up and down the coast from Edenton, New Bern, Hampstead, finally coming home to Wilmington when my husband retired.  All the while I kept exploring the coast and selling real estate.  There is nothing better than helping people find their first, next or "forever" home.  Being an avid sailor, I specialize in waterfront and boating communities, but love restoring historic homes and preserving the past for generations to come.


My Philosophy 

As I progressed in my career, I found myself looked for a change.  A new company that cared about their clients and treated them the way I do... like family. A company that cares as much about the price and location of a home as it does about the inside livability and function of it's design.  Where I could combine my real estate knowledge and passion for design. I found Living Seaside Realty Group to be just that company!  

It wasn't easy to leave Coldwell Banker after 15 years, After all, that is where I had gotten my start, but I am thrilled to now be part of this group of dedicated, hard working, seasoned realtors.  Come by and see me at my new office on Oleander Dr. I would love to meet you!
