Print Agent Bio

Welcome to this Portland Native’s website. I am passionate about real estate and can offer great insight about the neighborhoods which make up this vibrant and growing city and its suburbs. I am a full-time, full service Broker, with 22 years of experience serving the Portland Metropolitan area; helping my awesome clients buy and sell houses, condominiums, lots, small commercial and multi-family properties.

 

I fell in love with real estate after college when my husband and I would buy a home, live in it while we did renovations and then sell it. When our daughter was born I decided to leave the corporate work-place and be a part-time Realtor and a full-time Mom. It’s been a fabulous career and it’s never been part-time! I love working with people and feel honored that I am trusted to help them when making one of the biggest financial decisions of their lives. Whether it's buying a first home, selling their investment property or buying their dream home, it is one of the most gratifying aspects of my job.

 

I've been a top-producing Realtor for 2 decades. In addition to a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing, I hold the GRI Designation, (Graduate of Realtor Institute), ABR (Accredited Buyers Representative), and e-Pro designation. I am also an Earth Advantage Broker, educated in building and remodeling techniques that can save money on utilities and make the best of the resources we have for a healthier indoor life. I've also earned the designation of Principal Broker.

I've been a member of the Portland Metro Association of Realtors for 22 years and a Masters Circle Broker for 20. I have also been awarded the Portland Monthly Top Agent award for excellence in client service for 6 consecutive years. 

 

Real Estate Excellence with Integrity, Exceptional Service, Outstanding Reputation. Home(work) for YOU is what I do best! I look forward to meeting you.

Our two-year professional relationship with Debra began in 2010 when my husband Michael and I decided to move to Portland from Evanston, IL and culminated in June, 2012 when Debra helped us buy our present home in SE Portland in the Sunnyside neighborhood. Debra was recommended to us by friends who used her services to relocate from Evanston, IL to Portland, OR. We liked Debra the first time we met her; her patience and energy and kindness were very helpful as it took almost two years to sell our home and move out here. Even before we sold our home in Evanston, Debra showed us properties whenever we visited Portland and answered all of our email and phone inquiries in a very timely manner when we were back in the midwest trying to sell our home. A real testament to Debra’s professional expertise is when we sold our home and had six weeks to buy a home in Portland, pack our stuff and move here. We were able to buy our home here in Portland in a weekend with Debra’s proactive support and work on our behalf. Our house closing here in Portland was smooth and very professional. Debra helped us navigate all the paperwork and legal issues here in Portland as it was the first time in thirty-three years that we were buying a new home. I would highly recommend Debra and her realtor expertise.

Dear Prospective Client of Debra Mathews: It is with great pleasure that we recommend Debra's professional real estate services to other prospective clients. There are two strong indicators of a successful real estate transaction: 1) A personal desire to conduct additional real estate transactions with the same Realtor 2) A willingness to strongly recommend your Realtor to friends, relatives, and other prospective clients On both these counts, we are happy to say that we have had three successful transactions with Debra Mathews as our Realtor and we could not offer a stronger endorsement for any Realtor. We bought our first home three years ago and just recently as our needs have changed, we have sold our home and have purchased another lovely house with Debra's assistance. Debra is a great listener and patiently worked with us to find the right house for the right price. Her administrative and negotiation skills were reassuring because we always knew "the next steps" throughout all of our transactions. With her passion to work hard and meet our needs, we were confident that we maximized our profits on the sale of our home and at the same time she bargained on our behalf to secure our latest home for the best possible price. Her fundamentals and knowledge of the industry are extremely strong; this is a critical reason why we would repeatedly do business with her. Lack of knowledge and making decisions based on poor information will cost you a lot of money and headaches. With Debra Mathews as your Realtor, you will have the best possible experience with the least amount of stress. Debra has always displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility, and ambition and this is why we strongly recommend her services. Please feel free to have any of your prospective clients contact us directly to confirm that you are their best possible choice.

I recently purchased my first home last late summer and was referred to Debra by a friend of mine. This was the largest financial commitment that I had ever considered so needless to say, I approached the whole process with a fair amount of trepidation. Debra was able to immediately allay my concerns by answering my many questions about purchasing a home. I felt like she really took a "hands on" approach to the whole process, with constant updates and information on the types of properties that fit my search parameters. We were able to look at a wide array of houses in a short period of time and most importantly, act quickly once I made the decision. Her attention to detail and ability to make my first home purchase a positive experience instead of a stressful one is greatly appreciated. She's a pro, I'd recommend her to anyone.
