Transitioning from Wilton to Madison, my husband and I found not just a new house, but a cherished community we've called home for over two decades. With four vibrant children raised and endless memories made, the charm of Madison brought it altogether.
Before diving into real estate, I had the privilege of shaping young minds as an Early Childhood Educator right here in Madison. Patience, fairness, and strong values were not just principles in the classroom but integral parts of my life. These are the qualities I bring to my real estate endeavors every single day.
My commitment to community runs deep and I strive to make a meaningful difference wherever I can.
Servicing the shoreline—from Madison to Guilford, Branford to East Haven, and beyond—I've had the pleasure of assisting friends in finding their perfect homes in places like Old Lyme, Old Saybrook, Killingworth, and Deep River. Wethersfield, Glastonbury, and Simsbury have also become new havens for those I've had the honor of working with.
For me, real estate isn't just about transactions; it's about relationships. Understanding my clients' needs, providing personalized attention, and maintaining a professional yet personal approach are the cornerstones of my service. From first-time homebuyers to those seeking their forever home or savvy investors, I'm dedicated to helping you achieve your homeownership goals.
Thank you for considering me to guide you through one of life's most significant investments—your home. I look forward to our appointment and the opportunity to work together.

My agent - Debra Pardales was referred to me by another great RE agent/friend that had recently retired. Debra was highly recommended and now...after two Multi-Family purchases in Middlesex county, she truly showed her tremendous experience and professionalism! More than just her immense knowledge of the RE business and intimate knowledge of the market, she displayed great care and interest in our requirements. She listened to our needs, addressed all our concerns and diligently followed through on every step of the purchasing process until the closing...and beyond! She always gave us guidance and great references for services related to our purchases. She is so pleasant to work with and I would without hesitation ask her to represent us again!Voutsina LLC
Debra has been keeping us informed about homes in the Guilford and Madison area since 2017, we are out of state. It has been a long journey but we found our perfect home in Madison. Debra was awesome with every aspect of our search and purchase. She kept us on tract for deadlines as well as being at the house for all inspections. Debra is knowledgeable, professional and available. 5 stars!Aimee Smith
Deb was extremely professional, very knowledgeable and a steady presence throughout the process. She has a kind heart also which was an added bonus!Lisa samar-ross
My realtor, Debra is always ready whenever I contact her. She is understandable and very nice. She helped me a lot to fulfill our goal. She also provided the required information for new community.Lei
We worked with Deb previously as buyers during a super stressful time when everything we looked at and thought to buy had already gone to contract . Then we got very fortunate to get the house that we have now sold through Deb. So we have been buyers and sellers with Deb for a reason. She has been unbelievably responsive to our communication, she has exhibited strong knowledge of the current and quickly shifting marketplace and she has been particularly aware and supportive of our specific wants and needs. We tried selling our home on our own and had three showings. Deb put the house on the market and had 15 showings in two days with multiple viable offers. Deb helped us review each offer, she secured answers to our questions and concerns and above all she was a professional through and through. Listen, we got calls from tons or realtors….. we went with Deb both times and were elated with the outcomes.James Stella & Laura Bunda

We worked with Debra Pardales with our recent business with Sothebys’s- Madison CT. This was our first time working with an agent. Debra was excellent in communicating with us and secured a tenant for within the time frame we were seeking. Thanks!Dawn Ardito
We've been very happy with our overall experience at William Pitt. Our broker, Deb Pardales was wonderful to work with and very responsive to our needs.Rich Gabriele
Debra Pardales represented my wife and I in 2017 in the sale of a two family house in Deep River, CT. Early on she connected with the eventual buyer whom she recognized more than we did as the one”. However, as the buyer’s details took some time to get sorted out, Debra continued to show the house diligently to others. She worked tirelessly on our behalf and guided us to a successful sale at a good price. We rate her A+” in all aspects of our business relationship, from early advice, to constant attention to showings, good communication and consultation whenever a decision had to be made and coordination with our attorney. She was also able to work with the tenants I still had which made the process more challenging. Thanks Debra, We will definitely call you next time!Rich and Kathy N
We are very happy to write this letter on behalf of Ms. Debra Pardales. We have known Debra on the occasion of the purchase of a house in Clinton, CT. She responded to a property inquiry, and we later met in person. From the very onset we were impressed by her professionalism, knowledge of the field and friendliness. Debra immediately understood what we were looking for and could afford, and she offered multiple choices for our review with total frankness and honesty. She showed us a number of houses that could be of interest to us, outlining their positive and negative aspects and never pushing us to make a decision. When we found the house we liked, she advised us about the negotiating and purchasing process – we were first-time house buyers. She took care of the negotiation with the seller, the inspection, contacts with our bank and lawyer, with exceptional professionalism, efficiency and courtesy. We always felt we could trust her. Debra also advised us about, and put us in touch with contractors for a few jobs needed in the house, and assisted us in the various things necessary for us to settle. Her advice was precious, and we were very satisfied with her recommendations. It was a real pleasure for us to interact with Debra, not only on a professional but also on a personal level. Besides being an excellent professional, she is a very likeable person able to establish a very courteous relationship with her clients. We therefore recommend her with our utmost enthusiasm.P & MP M New York, NY
Debra is knowledgeable about the shoreline towns and was committed to help find a good fit of a home and a community that would meet my needs. She was generous with her time and provided guidance while showing me all the places I wanted to see! Her listening skills and kindness helped me narrow my search until just the right home was found and purchased. I definitely recommend Debra!G.T.
I was feeling pressure from being under a tight timeline close on a home. Debra was sensitive to my pressures but also focused on making sure the purchase was the right fit. After looking at many condos, she helped me realize that a private home on a quiet street close to town was where I needed to be. Debra is very knowledgeable about the town of Madison, all it has to offer and many of the smaller pockets of neighborhoods within the town. When we found the future home, I was ready to settle and stop the negotiating process, concerned about delays and other potential risks, but Debra had a good sense with respect to what could still be brought to the negotiating table in my favor. I really appreciated her guidance and experience through the whole process. Now, 1 year later, I know the choice was the right one for me and Debra’s guidance was invaluable. I highly recommend Debra for anyone looking for a new home within town for anyone looking to move into town.Diane
I would like to thank you, Debra, for your knowledge, compassion, and input in the sale of my cottage in Old Lyme. You listened to my concerns and opinions, but ultimately allowed me to make the final decisions, without making me feel as though I was undermining your expertise. The sale was smooth and you kept me informed of all correspondence between attorneys and the future home owner in a timely manner. Your professionalism surpassed my expectations and I appreciated your approach to selling this property. Thank you again for closing this chapter to allow a new one to be read.L.F.

Debra helped both sell our house and buy one. She was very responsive and, even when I changed the search area several times while looking for the right house, was very accommodating and helpful. She always kept us up to date and checked in frequently as both closings progressed. We felt we were in good hands as she stayed on top of things throughoutL.G.
I have a great realtor in Westchester so when considering a shore home I asked her for a CT realtor recommendation. Later I found out she did her research and chose Debra without meeting her. She was right, Debra is smart and efficient but also very gracious. She is persistent, engaged and highly responsive without being aggressive or overbearing. She has great finesse and I enjoyed watching her navigate with the other realtors we met during my search. She is a total professional and I enjoyed all our interactions from original search to final closing. I HIGHLY recommend Debra, she’s knowledgeable and easy to be with.Janine M
If you are moving to the shoreline, we highly recommend Debra as your realtor. She is patient, persistent, and quickly understands her clients’ needs. As a longtime resident of Madison, she has excellent local knowledge and can provide much needed guidance on neighborhoods, schools, contractors, and just about anything you might need during the process. She was available and always happy to show us more properties. She had similarly discerning tastes, which helped us to avoid seeing houses that didn't meet our needs. Most importantly, she was able to get us into houses as soon as they came on the market, which was how we found our dream house. We love our new home and cannot recommend Debra enough!Usar 5811471
