The pleasure was all mine

By Debra Hornbecker, November 10, 2020

I love my job and the people I get to work with. Some days, I just have to pinch myself. People who know me, know that I just love to help others. I just love seeing buyers loving their new homes. I love sellers feeling satisfied with their sale.

It was such a fun surprise to come home to these beauties from an awesome client who closed on the sale of their home this week. It’s nice to receive a thank you, though not necessary. But hey, what girl doesn’t love flowers and a sweet little card saying thank you.

Who is Debra and what distinguishes her? Debra is a real estate broker with a good sense of humor and an ability to put home buyers and sellers at ease. Her stellar communication skills and attention to detail have contributed to her growing real estate practice.

Prior to entering the exciting world of real estate, Debra earned her master degree in social work. Working with clients in drug and alcohol treatment, community mental health, and the emergency department helped her hone her people, negotiation, and project management skills.

Debra loves that real estate allows her the flexibility to give back to her community. Always a  consummate volunteer, Debra has volunteered with organizations such as Planned Parenthood and Oregon NARAL. Debra is also an involved mom at her kids’ schools. Debra has played active roles on the executive board of the PTA.  She volunteered to co-chair the school auction for two consecutive years. She isn’t afraid to step up and give back to her community in those roles that no one else is willing to do.

For the last five years, Debra has raised a family and built a real-estate practice in Portland. Her clients get the benefit of her experience and perspective. And a healthy dose of midwestern customer service (she grew up in Indiana!). Her parents instilled in her a strong work ethic, which is apparent to all who come into her life as friends or clients.
