Print Agent Bio

Marketing homes requires a great deal of experience and knowledge but more importantly it requires an agent who truly cares about customers and community.  Compassion, commitment and communication are three principles I strive for to serve in every listing, showing and sale.  I will provide you with the expertise and professionalism you expect from your agent.  

I've lived in my community for over 28 years and I understand our neighborhoods, how the community has grown and will grow further.  I use the experience gained to guide and serve my clients by leading the way in successfully marketing their homes. 

Why are you selling your home?  Why are you buying a home?  Whatever the reason, you need an agent who understands that buying or selling a home is an active process and makes that process worry-free.

My husband and I met Debby at an open house while dipping our toes into the West Linn real estate market summer of 2016. She was informative without being pushy and we immediately felt comfortable with her. My husband liked her a lot and he dislikes most everyone in sales. She actually encouraged us (mostly me) to be patient. I thought she was mad as I was dragging her all over town looking at houses and emailing her listings regularly :) Debby found us a home we love. She walked us through buying our first home and helped negotiate a fair deal for everyone. After the sale she connected us with locals she trusts and they have helped us navigate home ownership. She loves West Linn and her enthusiasm is contagious! We love it here too! I can't imagine how a realtor could be any better. We still feel lucky to have met her at that open house. Thank you Debby!

— Marc & Lisa Maxwell

Throughout our home buying experience, Debby was patient, knowledgeable, and consistent. Her steady attitude and wonderful sense of humor made our time with her enjoyable and comfortable. She always took time to have genuine interactions with our daughters and form meaningful connections with our family. We are forever grateful for her professional guidance which helped us find the exact home we were looking for. We will always recommend Debby because we know she will always provide her clients with the same honest, hard-working, and friendly approach that she provided us.

My husband and I know many realtors. When we found ourselves with the task of selling not one, but two homes because of our parents passing, we asked Debby Hennessy to represent us. As a friend, I have admired Debby's compassion, humor, and work ethic for several years. We found all of that and more were part of her professionalism in working with us. In both cases she had to work with 3 siblings (total of 6) who lived from Seattle to Oakland. Her communication was detailed and constant. Many e-mails went back and forth of which she responded to in an informative and timely manner. My mother's house was in a neighborhood Debby had not worked in a lot so she brought in a realtor who knew the area well and helped price the home accurately. My mother's home needed much updating. Debby helped us focus on what really was needed to help sell the home making an overwhelming task much easier. She brought in an interior designer on Larry's father's home to help with colors. Debby even staged his home with her own furniture. Before open houses she would vacuum and dust to make them perfect. Not only did Debby contribute much of her time to sell our homes, but she also provided the sellers home warranty out of her own pocket. We can not thank her enough and would and have recommended her services gladly. Sincerely, Debbie and Larry Haroun

My wife and I would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for Debbie’s excellent job in representing us as sellers for our home. Her market analysis put our home in the perfect price range and we sold very quickly. We were impressed with her passion for selling real estate. We really enjoyed working with her and will continue to recommend her to our friends and family.

"Debby was awesome. Our family moved from North Carolina and identified Debby fairly early in the process. She did a great job of communicating with us and working to understand what we needed and wanted in our new home while at the same time negotiating time zone and technology complications. She was available outside of normal business hours, which was important for us (starting out with a 3 hour time difference & a two working parent household). She worked with us to understand the local market, aspects of different areas of town and had a great understanding of benefits and drawbacks to each area of town that we looked in, the specific properties we were considering, and the market overall. She did an outstanding job of listening to our feedback, making suggestions, and adjusting to changes on our end.

Our process took longer than we were expecting, partially due our need to understand the Portland metro market, and partially because of the time of year we were searching. Debby was completely professional, upbeat, and engaged through the entire process (even when we were frustrated with the process).

The house that we eventually bought came on the market on Thursday. Debby identified it and sent it to us in the first 24 hours. We went and looked at it over the weekend and were under contract on Monday. We would not have had the opportunity to buy our home if it had not been for her organization and presence (as there were multiple other interested parties).

During our negotiation process, Debby did an outstanding job advising us in each aspect of negotiation, managing inspections and repairs, & managing the execution of the contract.

I have worked with many real estate agents in multiple states. Most of my experiences with agents have been underwhelming at best, and disastrous at worst. Debby was both incredibly valuable to our process and a pleasure to work with. I strongly recommend working with her."

"I can't imagine using anyone else than Debby Hennessy. This is the 2nd listing she has helped me sell and every time it has been smooth sailing.

Debby is the best agent to choose ( not only because she is fabulous) she helps you at every stage of the sale process. Starting with getting the house ready to sell, from the beginning stages of cleaning, fixing what needs to be fixed, staging, and landing on the correct sale price to list the house.
I highly recommend her she won't disappoint!"

"We didn't know what we really needed when we started the process of selling our home of 42 years. Debby walked us through each step of the process in a professional manner and with realistic expectations.
Her calm manner combined with her strong negotiation skills got us top dollar for our sale and kept the process moving forward even when there were some hiccups.
We would highly recommend her!"
