Notes from Debbie Kirkland

My goals are to be recognized by the public as one of the best real estate salesperson in the Tallahassee and surrounding area; to be recognized by real estate agents as a transaction broker working to provide an atmosphere of mutual trust, respect, and cooperation; and to be valued as a partner by those groups who devote themselves to making our community a better place in which to live.

I'm proud of my community, proud to work with the best Realtors in the State of Florida, and proud of the fine homes my clients have entrusted me to market. I work hard. I work together with my buyers and sellers. Foremost, when it comes to choosing a Realtor, I never forget you have a choice.

My goals are to give back to my community for years of enjoyment and opportunities I have found in Tallahassee. $100 of every closing will go to a local Veteran’s Charity in honor of those who have served and continue to serve our Country.
