As a resident of Manhattan since 1982, Debra shares her broad knowledge of the city's different neighborhoods with her customers. Her interest in art and architecture drew her to the historic districts of downtown Manhattan.

Her design savvy as well as her uncanny ability to help people find places that fit their personality makes her the ideal broker in securing your dream home.

Originally from Texas, Debra shares her love of travel and cooking with her husband. Together, they are the creators and owners of two popular New York eateries . Outside of work, Debra can be found scouting the local green markets for her next culinary venture.
