Sold!!! Multiple Offers!!! Plagues!!!

By Debra Hornbecker, September 15, 2020

Oh my goodness! The world is certainly throwing us all into a tizzy with the challenges of navigating transactions amidst a global pandemic and now wildfires and toxic air. As they say, there is never a dull moment in real estate.

It was such a delight to get to know Stuart and Audrey over the course of selling their beautiful Marshall Park home. Solid marketing and a lovingly updated home contributed to receiving multiple offers selling for $29,000 over list price. Selling a home through a pandemic was one challenge, but the surprise of toxic levels of smoke from the Oregon wildfires as they prepared to move out presented some challenges without a doubt.

I am so excited for them to move on to the next chapter of their lives.

Broker Licensed in Oregon

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.
