Each month, we’re highlighting one of the amazing real estate agents here at Associated Real Estate! Meet Debra Shea!
- Where did you grow up? Tell us about your family!
I was born in Lancaster and called Palmdale my home until I moved to Tehachapi. I still have an
an affection for the Antelope Valley. My husband David and I moved to Tehachapi in 2008 in search of a smaller town to raise our children. We have one son and three daughters, and a dog named Bosco.
2. What’s your favorite thing about Tehachapi?
I love the charm that comes with our small, but welcoming community. Tehachapi also offers something few Southern California towns can, all four seasons! I have loved watching my children go from playing in the snow, to growing spring gardens then being able to enjoy summer days by a pool or lakes.
3. Did you have a different career prior to becoming an agent?
My mother owned a restaurant in the Antelope Valley for 25 years. I loved growing up
in a family business. I believe it instilled a strong work ethic and dedication to customer service, as well as the capacity to multitask at a high level. As a business owner, my mother also became a real estate investor. This afforded me the opportunity to see how reaI estate is a business, not just home buying. After college, I began working in mortgage lending and then made the transition into real estate agent. I have a passion for real estate and helping clients achieve their buying and selling goals.
4. What is your number one piece of advice for someone trying to sell their home?
Choose a strong real estate agent, then trust them to give you the time and care needed to get the most competitive return you can on the home you have loved.
5. What do you think is the most important thing for clients to know about buying a house?
Finding the right house is a process that can seem daunting and stressful. Allow me to handle the stress. It’s why you put your trust in me. So YOU can enjoy the process while we find your perfect home!
6. Where is your favorite place in the world?
Anywhere with my husband and our four children. We especially love camping at the beach together.
7. What do you love about being a real estate agent?
My first priority is making my clients happy. I thrive on building relationships and connecting with people. To foster these relationships, I listen to the needs and wants of my clients, while focusing on the best possible outcome in each transaction.
