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.

‟Debbie was there for me in my home purchase every step of the way. We were dealing with an out of the ordinary complicated situation and she made the process smooth and as effortless as possible. I will use her for all of my future real estate needs and I highly recommend her to everyone.”
‟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 ▾

‟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.”
‟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 ▾
