Debra believes that one of the most significant investments in life is a home, whether it be a condominium, TIC, multi-family or single-family residence. By sharing her unshakeable passion for real estate with her clients, she sets the pace for an exciting, and efficient, process. Debra extends her resources, innate local expertise, and knowledge attained by her extensive experience with the dynamic San Francisco market, instilling confidence in her clients’ decisions. Whether working with buyers or sellers, her focus remains on guiding her clients to successfully reach their unique real estate goals.

We got to know Debra a little better when catching up with her about her Zephyr anniversary.

1. What neighborhood/city do you live in and why? How long have you lived there and what do you love best about it?
“My husband and I recently moved to a classic European style condominium in Pacific Heights – across from Lafayette Park. It feels like Paris. We recently traveled to Paris this winter and realized what a gem of a neighborhood we live in. I most like the varied and human scaled architecture with the walkability to everything we need, from grocery to shoe shopping!”

2. What do you love to do in your spare time? Do you have a favorite place to hang out in the Bay Area?
“My favorite way to unwind is sharing quiet evenings with my husband, preparing meals paired with a chosen bottle of wine. We also love to eat out and are avid movie buffs. We are members of the San Francisco Film Festival, the San Francisco Jazz and the Commonwealth Club. I regularly take evening runs in my neighborhood and enjoy the views of the City and the Bay.”

3. Is there one neighborhood in the Bay Area that you think is truly a hidden gem and why?
“Golden Gate Heights. This west of Twin Peaks neighborhood is situated on one of our seven hills and thus many homes enjoy beautiful ocean views and good value as compared to a similar home in Noe Valley or Eureka Valley.”
