Debby Ridge R(S)

Debby views her role in assisting buyers and sellers as more than a career – with both passion and a deep sense of responsibility it’s an opportunity to make a positive impact on other’s lives. She sees herself not as a sales person, but as a professional who guides her clients through the major life event of buying and/or selling a home. By always listening first to fully understand her clients’ wants and needs; making sure they understand both the process and the significance of each decision they make and each document they sign; putting their best interests ahead of making a sale; and being available and responsive to them as quickly as possible. Whether it takes a day or a year to find that perfect property, she never pushes. Debby makes sure her clients have all the pertinent facts; and that they know their options. She never sugar-coats the truth, and always points out both the positive and negative in a potential decision. When you add Debby’s patience and her genuine love for people to the mix, you get a combination that leaves clients knowing that they have a friend and protector as well as a guide. Debby is known for her easy-going, friendly attitude, her cooperative spirit, and her love of laughter. But when her clients’ interests are at stake, her intense loyalty, tenacity, negotiating skills, and problem solving abilities come to the forefront. Although she gets a special satisfaction from helping first time buyers and buyers that are new to the area find and purchase their dream homes, Debby also enjoys bringing a home to the market.
