Multnomah Village & the city’s best cookies

By Debra Hornbecker, January 12, 2021

Woohoo! My first real estate transaction is in the books for 2021! The sale came together on Thanksgiving of all days because a realtor’s work is never done. This was an off market sale that came together and is the perfect layout and location for my client in Multnomah Village. The deal came together through hard work and networking with agents. It was a win for all parties especially when COVID and life circumstances sometimes make listing sometimes less than ideal.

Since it was off-market, I have no photos to share and my client is out of state. However, who doesn’t love photos of gorgeous cookies from the sweetest baker I know, Courtney @lareinita! Are her cookies related to the home sale? No. Will I be eating one of these bad boys to celebrate? Heck yeah!

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.
