Debbie Shearer REALTOR®, ABR, SRES, CMRS
Debbie Shearer joined the Active Adults Realty Team after a career with Verizon. She and her husband, Joe raised their two children Chris and Corey in Laurel, Maryland. The Shearer’s were Active Adults Realty clients and chose Delaware for their Boomer Move in 2012 because of the low property taxes and the Lower-Slower Way of Life. Debbie became a licensed MD REALTOR® in April 2008 and joined Active Adults in 2012 after settling into the Heritage Shores Neighborhood in Bridgeville, Delaware.
Debbie and Joe found golf community life at Heritage Shores the perfect place to start their “next chapter.” The Neighborhood’s location “is a quick ride back to Maryland, our kids and grandson. As a native Marylander, I felt at least in Delaware, I was still connected so I didn’t really leave home.”
“We chose Active Adults Realty when we were ready to move to Delaware. We appreciated Kathy and the Team’s connection, the local knowledge and boomer thinking. They paid attention, knew what we needed and the office made the home buying process easy. In 2012, when I was ready to transfer my real estate license to Delaware and start my new career, AAR was the right place for me.”
Debbie earned her SRES in February 2014. By completing this course, she now knows the differences in senior housing options, from age-restricted communities to aging-in-place design concepts to alternative assisted living situations. In addition, real estate agents possessing the SRES designation can safely counsel the 50+ market on the ins and outs of reverse mortgages; the use of pensions, 401k accounts, and IRAs in real estate transactions and are therefore able to provide superior service to this portion of the population. This designation, keeps Debbie in tune with the needs and wants of Boomer Buyers looking to settle in Delaware. She is a Certified Military Residential Specialist as well.
I feel special when I take this journey with my clients, feeling like “we” bought the home. Whether it involves selling your existing home or just finding the next one, we will be working as a successful team through your settlement.” Debbie keeps busy selling Real Estate, of course. “After retiring from a 30 year career at Verizon, I knew I wasn't finished working and had more to offer.” She also keeps active playing games at Heritage Shores Clubhouse, sewing, crafting and knitting.
