Koenig & Strey Real Living
A Realtor of patience, creativity and tenacity, Debra Dobbs is among the most recognized real estate agents with Koenig & Strey. In addition to a 100-percent rating from her clients in Koenig’s Quality Service Guarantee program and numerous Platinum Award recognitions from the brokerage, Dobbs was also the No. 1 individual agent at Koenig & Strey’s Lincoln Park office in 2012.
Her dedication to her clients’ complete satisfaction is the foundation for her continued success, and she embodies the passionate advocate that people deserve and expect when searching for a real estate agent.
“Every day, I think about how people choose their homes, where they choose to live, how they design their interiors and how they live in their homes and communities,” Dobbs says. “When I travel, I find myself exploring neighborhoods and looking at how agents market their listings. I could not imagine doing anything else professionally.”
Central to Dobbs’ marketing efforts is her embrace of social media and her curiosity about branding. “I have a love affair with branding; I find the whole concept fascinating,” she says. “I think staging, design and marketing go hand in hand with branding. I am developing an extensive social media platform to provide an enhanced level of marketing service for my clients.”
Dobbs is currently working on a unique program that will partner with local businesses to provide educational and concierge-level real estate services to the companies’ employees, and she says she continues to be intrigued and excited by the fresh approaches agents can take with their real estate careers. “I am eager to be part of the changing dynamic, to embrace new initiatives and opportunities while not losing sight of the ‘old school’ traits that make for
the best of agents – integrity, experience, advocacy and empathy.”
