"I believe my love of real estate began when I was seven. My parents would pile the four of us into the station wagon on summer nights and drive around looking at homes, neighborhoods and dream of their next move. If we were good, our evening would end with an ice cream cone. I still love ice cream cones and I still love real estate! I have always been a visually creative person and my years of studying and working as a designer in Manhattan has enabled me to combine a sense of style with effectively recognizing value - a powerful combination to offer to my clients...

I have always been a visually creative person and my years of studying and working as a designer in Manhattan has enabled me to combine a sense of style with effectively recognizing value - a powerful combination to offer to my clients. To me a successful Realtor is more than just the person with the most year end sales or the most years in the business. More important is the genuine ability to listen and understand each client's needs, to be able to identify and seek out opportunities for them no matter how long it takes, to be skillful, ethical and positive throughout an entire transaction and to never let them down!”

Deborah has maintained a full time CT real estate license since 1984. She works tirelessly to assist her clients through each step; from skilled negotiation techniques, home inspection issues and up to the minute mortgage programs. This commitment has consistently elevated her to Gold Star status within the company. Deborah believes that her repeated success comes from an extensive knowledge of market inventories and conditions.

She recently completed a six year term as a Director for the Ridgefield Board of Realtors. She has been recognized with a Five Star award by CT Magazine every year since 2010. Designations include: Certified Relocation Specialist, Professional Standards Certified Specialist, Member of NAR and CAR. Her prior design/architecture background enables her to visualize the potential and value in every property she successfully represents. Deborah grew up in the Ridgefield/Redding area. She is passionate about Animal Welfare and Regional Hospice.

Testimonials

"Deborah Durkee deserves agent of the month, year, decade. Deborah took over the marketing of our house from another agent and Deborah never missed a beat. During the entire period the house was listed for rent, she took it upon herself to stop by the house once a week to make sure the house was in order. Any issues were immediately brought to my attention. I can not tell you how helpful that was for me as I live and operate a business in Woodbury. Weekly visits would have been extremely difficult for me, especially during this winter. She is the consummate professional and defines superior service. Her counsel was always welcome and correct. I trusted her emphatically. She always had our best interests in mind. "

"Despite a few crash landings, Deborah was able to guide me past them with her knowledge of the various town rules and the numerous service businesses that we needed to make repairs, etc. Nothing was too hard for her to tackle. "

There were ups and downs for sure, but in the end we found the home of our dreams. You were so patient with us as we went through this process, first loving one home, then another. We weren't sure who we'd get when we chose to use USAA's realtor referral program, but we really lucked out in getting you!

Alyson and James S.

"Thank you so very much for your outstanding job and extremely personable, supportive and friendly manner. I could not imagine dealing with all the factors we did; weather, odors, equipment issues, contractors, and pricing strategies with anyone other than you. I knew from the start that you were the right person, not only given your expertise, but also because of your way of working with people and helping to resolve issues. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and Toni feels the same way."

Chris and Toni C.
