Earning her real estate license through the Real Estate Institute in downtown Chicago in the late 1980's, Deborah started her career working in her family's commercial real estate firm in Wheaton, IL. The East-West corridor of Oak Brook through Naperville was rapidly growing into thriving office and retail shopping communities. Partnering with a construction company, Deborah and her brother J.R. began developing office buildings throughout the western suburbs offering the newest market product - office condominiums.
Years later she formed an interior design business with a designer friend from Toronto. Chicago Design Associates specialized in residential and office renovations encompassing the North Shore and downtown Chicago.
Relocating with her husband to Southern California in 2014, Deborah obtained her CA license and successfully sold high-end residential real estate throughout the Coachella Valley, earning her company's Top Producing Agent designation in 2020.
Moving back to her roots in 2021, Deborah recently joined The Hausman Team at Compass Real Estate and continues her passion for helping both buyers and sellers achieve their real estate dreams and goals.
