Meet Debbie

Debbie RuvoWhen you are buying or selling real estate, you want – and need – a positive and helpful partner who is looking out for your needs.

I have been helping my clients buy and sell real estate since 1994. Ever since I started my real estate career, I have served as a resource, helping my clients with service, excellence, and integrity. What sets me apart is that my clients sometimes need a trusted advisor beyond the transaction, whether that be a contractor, valuation, or market data, and I am here to deliver. I have a consultant soul and I love helping people!

For buyers and investors, I provide education on real estate trends and expertise on how to take advantage of the current market. There are usually good deals to be had – in all markets. You just need to know where to look and be prepared to think outside the box! For sellers, I provide innovative marketing strategies to get your home sold in the quickest amount of time and for the highest return.

My passion is working with seniors aged 55+ whether that be a lifestyle transition for seniors and empty-nestors, downsizing and right-sizing, transitioning to assisted living, or even assisting with aging-in-place. My relationships and resources are ready to be put to work.

Whether it is your 1st move, 10th, or just need some advice – I am here to help!
