About Me


After more than 25 years in real estate and over 800 homes closed, I have the

experience and market savvy to guide clients to their best buying and selling decisions.


Ranking in the top 4% producing REALTORS® nationally, Debra Kaden is a people person at heart, and her success is a direct result of her strong client relationships. Her business is 90% referral-based due to the loyalty of past clients who consistently refer their friends and family. From empty nesters moving back to the city or younger families moving to the suburbs, Debra is expert on the nuances of schools, communities, and the many facets of city living.


For Sellers


Debra provides home sellers the tools necessary to sell their home in the shortest amount of time and at the best possible price. With a detailed knowledge of the marketplace, she advises her clients on how to make their home attractive to potential buyers. In addition, her extensive referral network allows her to bring buyers and sellers together. Supported by cutting edge technology, broad-based marketing and print advertising, not to mention the @properties brand and recognition as the #1 independent brokerage in Illinois, Debra is the partner you seek when selling your home.


For Buyers


Home buyers are offered the personalized service needed to find a home they love. Debra works tirelessly to qualify, tour and review potential homes for buyers. Working with a network of attorneys, lenders, and inspectors in order to provide her clients with a smooth transaction and the best purchase terms, repeat clients turn to Debra time and time again when considering a move.


North Shore Roots


Debra was raised on the North Shore and moved to the Gold Coast after graduating from Sarah Lawrence College in New York. She earned her NASD Series 7 license to become a stockbroker and worked on the Chicago Board Options Exchange for three years before venturing into real estate in 1985, serving Chicago and all of the North Shore.

Clients are saying:

"Debbie Kaden was the listing broker on a home I recently purchased, and I cannot speak highly enough of her: She has been accommodating throughout the process in every possible way. Debbie was responsive to my endless stream of questions, and if she didn't immediately have an answer, she went about finding it promptly. She worked amiably and cooperatively with my agent to create a seamless buying experience. Inevitably, after purchasing a home, more questions arise. Even post-closing, Debbie has continued to be helpful and kind, providing local resources and seeking information from the previous owners of my home when needed. She is knowledgeable, to say the very least, and really a joy to work with. In buying her listing, I have made a new, and very dependable, friend. Debbie redefines the phrase "going above and beyond the call of duty.""
