Debra was raised in a family owned chain of drug stores. Children of family owned businesses are expected to do whatever is needed. This taught her to understand how everything and everyone have to work together, and the value of viewing life as a big picture. Her upbringing equipped her to handle multiple business perspectives ranging from serving people to managing the inner workings of a business.
Intertwined with Debra’s real estate career, she has worked to teach and provide services to the mortgage and lending profession for almost 20 years. Understanding how credit works along with compliance and mortgage lending guidelines provides a whole picture approach as she helps her home buyers find their homes. At the same time, she raised her son, Dustin, now 36, who is a successful film and creative entrepreneur in California. He and his wife, Julia, gave Debra the gift of a granddaughter. Addison is the light of Debra’s life. She attends a performing arts school in California. She has watched “Addi” reach every self-appointed goal along the way and she is sure the Julliard acceptance letter will happen right on schedule.
As a licensed Real Estate Agent since 2000, Debra loves helping her buyers find their dream homes. She is a member of the Oklahoma Housing Education Association and will also begin teaching First Time Home Buyer Education at the Moore Norman Technology center beginning Spring 2017. Education, implementation and execution are Debra’s specialties as can be seen through her professional successes and the success of her family. Please help us in welcoming Debra to the Aria Family!
