Deborah Jeffray - Harcourts
You’ve heard her on the radio, seen her in the newspaper, on plenty of real estate signs over the years and you may have seen her flash by in her car – a Kia Stinger with her distinct “FOR DEB” number plate. The slick Panthera Metal ‘techno machine’ and its equally spirited driver are well known around the streets of Whakatane and Ohope. So here’s a chance to get to find out a bit more about this local icon…
Deborah is an effervescent, friendly, ‘always-on-the-go’ professional woman. Having grown up on a farm in Rotorua, she moved to the Eastern Bay in 1988. In her spare time, Deborah loves horse riding, photography, bush walker, music and socialising with friends. Deborah is also an active member of the Whakatane Rotary Club, and gets a great deal of satisfaction from assisting with various community service events and fundraisers.
Deborah began working at Harcourts as a receptionist in 2002 and gained her Real Estate Salespersons Certificate 18 months later. Since then she has successfully helped hundreds of clients buy and sell real estate. She loves what she does and says that she can’t imagine ever doing anything else!
A favourite part of Deborah’s job is helping clients who are in their ‘golden years’ sell up and purchase a new property more suited to their lifestyle. Whatever the situation, Deborah will be there guiding her clients through a process that can otherwise be quite stressful.
Deborah enjoys working as part of the highly successful Harcourts Whakatane team whose combined strength and knowledge make them a formidable force in the local real estate market. Having been in the industry for over 15 years, Deborah has a wealth of experience in real estate, including appraising properties, which she is happy to do free of charge and without obligation. Should you be thinking of selling, she can also offer advice on how to prepare your home for sale. You can be assured that Deborah and Harcourts will be ‘with you all the way!”
The real estate market in Whakatane is currently very buoyant, with an influx of people moving to this area from the likes of Auckland and Tauranga, for its relaxed lifestyle and affordability. Houses in our area are in great demand with demand currently outstripping supply.
