Debbi Jacob, Associate Broker with Nothnagle Realtors, has been named one of the “Top 50 Realtors on the Rise for 2008,” by RIS Media’s Real Estate Magazine. Debbi was selected by the magazine’s editors out of hundreds of submissions sent in from across the country.
This is the 4th year that Real Estate Magazine has conducted the contest. The recipients of the award are from across the U.S. and the winners are featured in the August issue of Real Estate magazine and online at http://www.rismedia.com.
Debbi has more than 26 years of sales experience and was working as a dental hygienist when she first joined Nothnagle in search of a new career. Licensed in June 2006, Debbi is fast approaching $8 million in sales this year. Debbi won Nothnagle’s “Rookie of the Year” award and is a member of Nothnagle’s prestigious Gold Club.
As a newly licensed agent working between shifts at the dentist office, Debbi’s manager once asked why she was achieving so much success at open houses. Debbie replied, “I only have two hours so I need to listen carefully, ask questions and establish rapport very quickly. I need to establish trust so people know I will be able to look out for their best interests.”
When asked about the overall secret to her success, Debbi further added, “Our office and the tools Nothnagle has make it pretty easy to find success. The only thing an agent has to add is hard work and the golden rule and that is to treat people as you would want to be treated. It’s a pretty easy concept and I know people sense when an agent cares about them and their needs above and beyond everything else.”
Armand D’Alfonso, President and CEO of Nothnagle Realtors, stated, “From day one, Debbi’s warm and engaging personality made everyone she meets comfortable and confident that she could help them with all of their real estate needs. Combined with her positive attitude and determination, I knew Debbi would be very successful in this business. We are thrilled to have Debbi as part of our Nothnagle family of agents.”
Debbi is married with three grown children. In addition to selling real estate, Debbi enjoys skiing, boating, antiques, gardening and is an active volunteer with Breast Cancer awareness.
