Hello, my name is Deborah. I have 15 years experience in administrative (typing speed - 85 wpm) and "hands-on" marketing / management. I have helped local, national, and international engineering, architectural, and CPA firms strengthen their position in the marketplace while increasing their bottom line. I will do whatever it takes to accomplish your client's financial goals. You should hire me because I can make your life easier and help you increase your client base, maintain your existing customer base, and secure referrals that become lifetime customers, as well. It's all about taking pride in your work, paying attention to the details, and exceeding customer expectations, one customer at a time. In addition to having successfully completed a real estate course offered by Long & Foster, I have extensive experience in creating advertisements, press releases, and newsletters. I'm also an avid photographer.
