I am a true Jersey girl, having lived in Essex, Monmouth, Union, Somerset, Ocean, Mercer and Burlington counties, and I enjoy helping people navigate the New Jersey real estate process. I have also been fortunate to live in California, North Carolina, Vermont, New York and the Netherlands (I am fluent in Dutch), so I understand the excitement and the stress of local, domestic and international relocation.
My studies in communications and health advocacy and prior career in public relations prepared me to represent my clients effectively. I am a certified e-Pro, comfortable with technology and happy to communicate with you 24/7 by cell, text, chat or Facebook, and to transfer documents via the cloud and use electronic signatures. I’ve also earned my At Home With Diversity designation and greatly enjoy working with people from all over the world who gravitate to the Princeton area. Additionally I have received training in historic real estate through the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
For the convenience of buyers who wish to search the entire greater Princeton area, I am also licensed in Pennsylvania.
I take my commitment to continuing education seriously and go far beyond what the industry requires by following the most insightful real estate and economics websites and blogs on a daily basis.
I’ve been a resident of the Princeton area since 1998 and my children are graduates of the top ranked West Windsor-Plainsboro schools. I offer you outstanding knowledge of every market in Mercer county as well as southern Middlesex, Hunterdon and Somerset, northern Burlington, Monmouth and Ocean, and eastern Bucks County, PA. I provide my clients with data-based insight into particular school districts and neighborhoods, as well as a continuous and detailed analysis of the market conditions that affect their purchase or sale. I also provide electronic updates on your transaction from contract to successful closing.
“We appreciate all you did for us and understand it could not have been easy dealing with all of our craziness. We found you to be very flexible in working with us during our home search. You were very professional during every step of the process and clearly met all of our many demands. We are very happy in our new home! “ M & JC, SIRVA Relocation buyers, Cranbury
“Deb is incredible. Not only was she able to help us sell our townhouse (at a profit, even in this poor market), but she was able to help us land our new house for substantially below asking price.” JK, seller/buyer, Bordentown/Chesterfield
“Thank you for your professionalism and kindness. It was good to know you were there.” – MW, landlord/seller, West Windsor
“We wanted to acknowledge Deb’s hard work, commitment and flexibility. Deb was always enthusiastic, and very patient. She understood what we wanted in a home, and helped us newbies handle all of the details. We really appreciate all of her work in getting us into our first house!” J & CC, buyers, Trenton
“Thank you for everything, including help in dealing with all the last minute chaos. I will certainly recommend you to all my friends.” JG, seller, Bordentown
“You’re the most reliable, honest and efficient realtor I ever knew. In the end, professional work makes all the difference.” – DD, buyer/landlord, Pennington
“Deb is the most diligent, courteous and responsive broker I have dealt with during my 20 years in the real estate business. As an attorney with my own real estate practice in New York City, I frequently deal with some of Manhattan’s top-producing brokers. Deb’s skills, professionalism and attentiveness to the customer are unmatched by any other broker I have dealt with during my career.” -JH, buyer, Robbinsville
“You don’t know how I appreciate your great work. You are just awesome!” – MK, seller, West Windsor
“Deb’s expertise really helped make the buying process less crazy than it could have been.” CC, buyer/seller, Montgomery
“Deb was friendly and professional without being overbearing. She offered to help us above and beyond the services required and was there to guide us along the way of what was at times a very difficult relocation process. Deb was without question the best agent we interviewed and proved to be very knowledgeable about the area and the market.” – JW, Cartus Relocation seller, Hamilton
“We lived in Arizona and being so far away definitely presented us with quite a challenge in our NJ house buying process. Deb was one of the very few things that kept us sane throughout the process. We have worked with many realtors in the past but none that remotely compare to the level of effort professionalism and enthusiasm that Deb consistently displayed. Her efforts have been an invaluable part in helping us begin to make our transition back to New Jersey.” – K & TJ, buyers, Cranbury
