Also known as the Little Black Dress Agent (branding her business around the poverty awareness initiative), she utilizes a qualitative approach for her Northern NJ real estate clients, ensuring an element of inclusion within our community.

The greatest love of Deb’s life is her rescue dog Luna, a 12lb Shih Tzu mix – who she deemed the unofficial mascot of the JLBC. Her hobbies include travel, food/cooking, spending time at her family’s beach house in Long Beach Island, and reading.
