Debbie Owens, GRI, Broker Associate - Mancos and Dolores
I was born in Miami, FL and raised in New Orleans, LA. After the birth of my son and the purchase of my first home, I decided to start a career in Real Estate. Acquiring my Louisiana Real Estate License in 1980, I choose to specialize in rural properties just north of New Orleans. My greatest achievements were recognized with the rural land development. It was an interesting era of marketing transitional properties. After several years of success, I was elected Louisiana State President of The Realtors Land Institute, a division of the National Assoc. of Realtors. I also edited the Real Estate Market Place Magazine and earned my GRI designation. (Graduate of Real Estate Institute.)
In the early 1990’s I had a transition of my own. I remarried and began selling timeshare condominiums in the French Quarter. After a number of successful years and an array of fabulous travel I decided it was time to settle back into a bedroom community and raise my daughter. We choose Biloxi, Mississippi.
First acquiring my MS Insurance License and then MS Real Estate License, the beautiful Gulf Coast was now home. My new field of expertise was in waterfront properties! Then along came Hurricane Katrina…..After I had family and pets secure and with a quick assessment of my own losses. It was weeks of helping my clients and customers whose property or pending property were also destroyed. With focus and determination, many families who depended on me found they could count of me.
Exhausted, numb and staring over I decided to fulfill a life’s desire and move to S.W. Colorado. Believe it or not, I always said I was going to retire in Colorado and sell real estate. Well, I’m not retired…but, I’m living my dream! I moved to Mancos to be close to my sister, accompanied by my daughter, Ayla, two dogs, a cat and a cockatiel. What a special place to heal! After nesting in and allowing Mother Nature to heal my spirit, I called Bobbie Carll.
She opened her arms and business door to me.
With family in the area and more family moving to the area, I’m home again!
It would be my pleasure to assist you with any of your Real Estate needs.
