A home is more than a place to hang your hat; it’s an investment in a dream. My clients place their trust in me, and count on me to be able to guide them through the buying or selling process. In the end, they want to know they’ve made a sound financial decision that fits their family. Home, family, dreams…these are real life. And that’s why I enjoy real estate.

I see my responsibility as being the link between the client and all of the service providers who help the client acquire their new home. It’s a complicated process, and my job is to provide real solutions to real problems. My duties revolve around the details, but it’s those details which make the transaction run smoothly.

What My Clients Say

Shady Hakim

Buyer
‟We bought our first condo in Santa Monica with Debbie’s help. Debbie was the first realtor to respond to our online request, set up a thorough meeting to help us understand the process and our options, and offered her connections for services we needed without any pressure to go with them. She takes initiative and knows this market extremely well. Our purchase was not a simple one. There were multiple glitches along the way and we could always count on Debbie to advocate for us, even if it meant getting on the phone and putting some pressure on. Even though we were all caught by surprise by a few issues during our close of escrow, Debbie stood by us for the entire year after our purchase to make sure we came to a satisfactory conclusion. Debbie went beyond the call of duty to the very end and we recommend her services to anyone in the market on the Westside” Read More ▾

Buyer
‟We searched for a home to buy in the Culver City/Mar Vista area for over eight months. This was our first home purchase. Debbie Bremner was our buyer’s agent and we are delighted to recommend her. She is a consummate professional with excellent relationships in the real estate community. She knows every neighborhood on the Westside of LA, is a stro ng negotiator, and took her fiduciary responsibility towards us very seriously. She anticipated each step of the process, was calm and steady through the rollercoaster negotiations on a property we ultimately did not go through with, and encouraged us to pounce on the right opportunity at the right time. Debbie helped us buy the home we wanted, at a price we could comfortably afford, in our dream neighborhood. We would be delighted to work with her again in the future” Read More ▾

‟My husband and I did not think that an agent like Debbie existed! She is honest, trustworthy, sincere, and very personal in her approach. But, she is also EXTREMELY experienced, savvy, and downright tough when the circumstance requires it. We had a particularly uncomfortable and overwhelming situation with our lenders. Debbie was straightforward, t ough and did quite a bit of the heavy lifting on her own so that we could complete our transaction. She is the rare combination of warmth and steel. In addition, Debbie is available 24-7; no question is too small. We look forward to using Debbie in the future and would give her our highest recommendation” Read More ▾

Buyer/Seller
‟Deb has helped us buy two houses and sell one. Beyond the fact, that she is available to answer all your questions at seemingly any hour, and the fact that she is incredibly knowledgeable about the market and the houses themselves; my favorite thing about working with Deb is that she is incredibly honest with you. When you are buying or selling a house, it's easy to get swept up in the fervor of high expectations. You can trust Deb to give you the truth about any property. Her sheer amount of experience in the field and specifically in the LA area, gives her perspective that you just can't find with newer agents. In the three transactions we've had with her, I always felt like we ended up with the best deal that our circumstances would allow. And as an added bonus, her time in the industry also has allowed her to cultivate a great extended team, so you get even more bang for your buck” Read More ▾

‟I am currently living in Honduras and I have 11 acres in Arkansas under contract and we were suppose to close tomorrow until everything came to a crashing halt on Tuesday when the title company back in the states told me that the docs, they had emailed me, had to be notarized at the U.S embassy in Honduras. Unfortunately the embassy and consulate a re in the Capital and this is an 18 hour round trip drive from where I am or a trip by plane, both are expensive and time consuming. I have not being given any other solutions by my realtor or the title company and so I have being searching online for info and advice, and that is when I found an article online written by Deborah Bremner, a realtor for Caldwell Banker. Deborah has being extremely helpful and equipped me with various options. She also has family in Nicaragua, so she is aware of the culture and problems I am up against here. The advice/solution I liked the most was that I will sign a power of attorney document using a Honduran notary and this document will give someone in the U.S.A that I know or my realtor knows, the power to sign the closing documents on my behalf. The document will then be shipped over night to the U.S embassy in the capital of Honduras, who will then hopefully notarize using a U.S notary, and then the document will be returned to me. I will at this point have the original power of attorney document with a Honduran notary seal and a U.S notary seal confirming all is legit, at which point the documents can be forwarded to the title company in the States who are taking care of the closing. In my review of Deborah I did not comment on her negotiation skills as she has not give me that type of assistance but in my time of need she was very helpful and obliging” Read More ▾

‟My family was caught in a financial downturn, and Debbie Bremner was there to talk with us about all the options available to us to avoid foreclosure on our home, and an ultimate bankruptcy. She teamed with our accountant and our attorney to be a formidable trio. Debbie marketed our home as a short sale, negotiated with the lenders and even got tax liens removed to expedite the sale. Debbie is much more than your average real estate agent. She is trained in all aspects of her career, and it shows. We are now in a much better financial state because of all her hard work, and well on our way to recovery” Read More ▾

‟Debra is a consummate professional. She helped us sell a condo in a tough market. She also helped our daughter purchase a lovely home. She was not afraid to walk away from a deal when prospective buyers were being unreasonable instead of leaning on us as sellers to accept the unreasonable position. Good negotiating skills.”
