My Professional Success:
A recognized leader in real estate on the North Shore for nearly 30 years, Debbie Scully has completed over $500 million in transactions throughout her career. Debbie is more than just a North Shore expert, as her daily life has revolved around the neighborhood since 1986. She understands and enjoys Highland Park's vast array of housing stock, and is familiar with everything the city has to offer.
Experienced with both buyers and sellers, Debbie was a part of the largest sale in Highland Park at over $17 million. Her clients range from first-time buyers to those seeking luxury, as well as buyers and sellers who are on their third or fourth home. Debbie has strong relationships with builders of new construction, and has also formed solid bonds with other agents in the area, leading to even more successful closings.
Overall, Debbie's main goal is to exceed her clients' expectations. This dedicated focus, along with an in-depth understanding of the market and her professional expertise, has led to continued success. A consistant top producer over the past 20+ years, she ranks in the top 1% of agents nationally. A "Road to the Rolex" winner, she has been recognized in Chicago Magazine as a Five Star Real Estate award winner each year since 2011. A smart and strategic negotiator, Debbie's clients always come first.
Born and raised in New York, Debbie enjoyed a rich business background before earning her real estate license. After receiving a bachelor's degree from the University of Pennsylvania, Debbie worked as a pediatric nurse at Boston Children's Hospital for two years, after which she received a scholarship grant from the National Institute of Health and earned a master's degree from New York University. She enjoyed several years in hospital administration before switching to the business side of healthcare with a successful career selling medical products and services. Debbie gained compassion from nursing and business expertise from sales, which she combines daily as a successful real estate agent.
Debbie moved to Highland Park in 1986, and has lived in the area ever since. Her two daughters were raised in the Highland Park school system, making Debbie more than just a North Shore expert, as her daily life has revolved around the neighborhood for more than 25 years. She understands and enjoys Highland Park's vast array of housing stock, and is familiar with everything the city has to offer. Spending time with her family is one of her main priorities, and in her free time she enjoys cooking, golf, canasta, and travel.
Honesty and integrity are extremely important to me, as is seeing every transaction through to the end - meaning the closing, not just the contract. Whether you are buying or selling a home, the process is a team effort and your goals and interests are my only concern. I will earn your trust and exceed your expectations.
Clients are saying:
"Debbie did a fantastic job marketing our home and overseeing the process during very difficult state-wide and national shutdowns. She also kept us informed throughout. I would highly recommend her to anyone selling their home in Highland Park."
"Debbie Scully became my agent after my home was listed for several months by another company.
From day one we had a steady flow of people coming through the house.
I believe Debbie and @properties were the right choice for me. She advertised my house well and got the job done."
"Debbie and Jorge are incredibly skilled professionals that any buyer or seller would be lucky to have on their team. They represented us on both the buy- and sell-side this year and we could not be happier. Here is why Debbie and Jorge are great: (1) They are seasoned pros with tons of experience. They know the market backwards and forwards. They were able to guide us, advocate for us, and counsel us through every step of the process. Nothing surprised them because they’ve seen it all! (2) Their communication and responsiveness were incredible. They always made themselves available for calls/texts and were able to schedule showings quickly. Having both of them on our team ensured that we never missed a showing we wanted to see and were able to get prospective buyers in to our home super quick when it came time to sell. (3) Debbie and Jorge complement each other extremely well. Each has different strengths, but with them working together we got to draw on a tremendous amount of combined experience and industry savvy. We highly recommend Debbie and Jorge"
"Debbie has sold for me and to me on 3 separate occasions. This time was tough as we are in a very soft market in the North shore of Chicago. She executed her marketing plan to perfection. She followed up with every broker that showed every house in MLS or @ properties system. That extra step is how we found the buyer. It wouldn't have happened unless she went the extra yard and made the phone calls."
"This is our second time choosing to work with Debbie. I need to work with someone I like enough to spend a lot of time with and I've always felt great about Debbie. She is smart and down to earth, professional but warm. I always feel like she is honest with us and has our best interests at heart."
