When you meet Debra Vanderbeck, the first thing that will strike you is her big, contagious smile. Her friendly, enthusiastic and good natured demeanor have endeared Debra to her clients over the course of her 20+ year career in real estate, as well as in her “past professional lives” as a ski instructor and, prior to that, a seamstress who learned how to sew from her grandmother and once contracted sewing work for Gore-Tex. Teaching skiing helped Debra learn what she calls “talking real estate, downhill style.” Like many people, Debra visited Steamboat Springs on vacation and was struck by the Yampa Valley curse. Her dream of moving to Steamboat became a reality in 2006, and she has loved every minute of living here. Debra has been involved in several different facets of the real estate industry for over 20 years, from managing multiple investment properties to selling single family homes, condos and townhomes. She is proud to have earned the designations of ABR (Accredited Buyers Representative), CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), and GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute). Debra enjoys sharing her knowledge of and passion for real estate, and guiding her clients through a smooth purchasing or selling transaction, from consultation through contract negotiations, closing and beyond. Born in Philadelphia, Debra has a “wicked” sense of humor. She is proud mom to 2 sons, and enjoys traveling, gardening, camping, fly fishing, biking, and, of course, skiing. Happy to take a meeting in her office, on the ski lift, or on the river, Debra takes great pride in offering personalized service and focused attention on her clients’ needs, in order to help them achieve their dreams.
