Hello, and welcome to wonderful northeast Florida!


I was born and raised in Maryland.  My parents took us on vacation in Florida when I was a child and in 1978 I was blessed to move to Florida.  Family and friends in Maryland said I would not like it here and they believed I would return within a year.  Sooo wrong; I love Florida!  Here I am in 2020 semi-retired and enjoying the beauty, sunshine, and relaxed happy atmosphere of Volusia County, FL.


I have been a licensed REALTOR® in Florida since 1979.  Through the years I have sold (and purchased) all types of residential properties including vacant land, mobile homes, condominiums and single-family homes.  Also, I worked for an agency of the State of Florida for 30-years – which allowed me to learn about environmental, regulatory and permitting requirements that may affect your making the right new home decision. 


When I say semi-retired it is because instead of taking on many customers at once, I choose to work with only a few select individuals at a time so that I can make you a priority and ensure that your needs are met!  There are many choices of REALTORS® and Brokers in our area including Chelle Realty Co.  I chose to work for a smaller company to guarantee I have the freedom and flexibility to better meeting your needs.  I can only tell you that you and your family’s needs will become a top priority should you select me to serve you.  Honesty, loyalty and hard work are all a part of my personal 10 commandments for living. I may ask for more details than others, but only because I want to gather all the information, and take all the time, needed to make sure all your wants are fulfilled.


I have past experience selling in Putnam, St. Johns, and Volusia County, Florida.  Let me answer all questions you may have with selecting what area would best meet your dreams.  I would also like to educate you on questions you should consider that you may not have thought of.  Many out-of-state visitors are unfamiliar with the pros of living in northeast Florida versus other areas of the state and I look forward to sharing why I think this area to be such a Gem.


When not working, I spend most of my time just relaxing with family and friends in the wonderful neighborhood in which I live.  Latitude Margaritaville was voted the Nation’s Most Popular 55+ Community in the U.S. in 2018.  What a dream come true here!  Even if you do not choose me alone to assist you, please choose me to show you Margaritaville!  It is always such a joy to share this beautiful friendly neighborhood with everyone!  Should you choose to build a home in Margaritaville, I would be happy to send you pictures and inform you of the progress weekly during construction!


The biggest joy in life is helping others!  Volusia County has most anything you could wish for; including location - the Daytona and Ormond Beach area are only about 1 hour from Orlando and Cape Canaveral.  There is plenty of shopping – Outlet Mall, beaches, fishing, golf, theaters, entertainment, good transportation, affordability and most of all the people are welcoming.  Please honor me with the opportunity and pleasure of assisting you in buying the perfect home for you and your family.


Let me proudly serve you in fulfilling your dreams of moving to a new home in Florida.  Thank you for your time and consideration.  Please email me at DStrattonRealEstate@gmail.com for additional information, or leave a voice mail at 904.669.4187.  Also, even if you are not going to be in the area for several months or a year, if you would share your preferences with me, I would be happy to use the information to email you an automatic report from our local Multiple Listing Service to insure you get updated information on available properties (and you will not have to perform your own Internet searches on sites that may, or may not, be up-to-date).


Thanks again for considering allowing me to help you find the Right home, at the Right investment, in the Right location, and at the Right time. 


Personal Regards.


Debra (Debbie) Stratton
