Real estate isn’t just my business, it’s my passion.
I am truly dedicated to my clients’ needs and goals. I understand the significance of buying or selling a home in a person's life and why attention to detail is crucial. I am there every step of the way, providing constant communication, to ensure the entire process is as smooth as possible.
I recognize the importance of analyzing the market for both sellers and buyers to ensure they have the education they need to make the best decision-- I will be a resource, advisor and confidant. Extensive experience in the business has given me the knowledge and understanding of all things real estate and I continue to grow and learn every day.
My background in art education gives me a different perspective than most; coupled with my many years in the business, I have gained expertise to help people to prepare their homes to look their best as well as see the potential in any living space.
With strong support behind me, along with the international name recognition of Coldwell Banker, I offer an exceptional level of service. Over the years I have built a network of professionals to recommend to my clients, from lawyers and accountants to designers, contractors and repairmen.
My ongoing dedication to my business and clients has resulted in recognition as one of the top agents in both Coldwell Banker and the city of Chicago for over a decade. My focus is building strong relationships and 100% of my business comes from referrals of happy and satisfied clients.
Here’s what some had to say:
“Debbie Wood always says, ‘you have to be the best of the best…’ This statement also applies to Debbie, as she is the best of the best when it comes to assisting you with your purchase or sale. She provided us with the support we needed to purchase our new home, navigate the current market conditions, and sell our former home in 1 week!. She was endlessly valuable in helping to prepare for listing and coordinate the contract periods of our properties.” – Becky and Mike
“We’ve used Debbie Wood three times for our moves within the city and really appreciate the way she handled each situation we’ve been in. Her team totally understands the market and is great about making the whole situation more comfortable by keeping us fully informed all the way through the process. We especially liked her prompt feedback and attention to every detail. We’ve recommended Debbie to several of our friends and will continue to do so.” – Karl and Kristen
More about me:
I am a Chicago native, and currently a West Loop resident where I live with my husband and two kids. In my free time I love to bake gluten-free goodies, try new restaurants, and go for walks with our Labradoodle. I also volunteer my time to the JDRF organization (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).
