Sometimes Realtors move, too.


And just as a new homeowner would pack up his or her belongings and hit the road, Realtor Debbie Kantor is packing up her knowledge of real estate and bringing it back to the Lake Mary/Sanford area which will, once again, be home. After living and working for many years in Windermere, Debbie is moving back to Seminole County, where she has happy memories of raising her family in Longwood.


For Debbie and her husband Joe, it’s a homecoming to a new house in Sanford’s Lake Forest community. For Debbie’s real-estate clients, it means easier access to a top-notch Realtor who now has a broader perspective on Central Florida.

“Coming back home, I’ll add my expertise back into the Seminole mix,” says Debbie.


No one can dispute the fact that there are many Realtors in Central Florida, but how many of them have grown up in the world of new-home construction and land development? How many can say they’ve lived in the Orlando area since 1959, watching it grow, evolve, and change over the years? Debbie has. Her experience and insight gives clients a complete perspective and a reliable partner in the often-overwhelming process of buying or selling real estate.


Debbie watched the Central Florida region grow into a major tourist attraction, all while watching her dad review development plans and build residential subdivisions.


Her husband, Joe, is a real-estate developer, too. The couple lived for years in Orange County to be closer to Joe’s projects. Now, Debbie is thrilled to be an integral part of the Seminole County community once again.


Being born into the real-estate industry helps, but good service is still imperative to create a rewarding Realtor/client relationship. That’s why Debbie goes the extra mile – ensuring her clients get personal, detailed attention from a Realtor who listens. All the while, clients benefit from her built-in knowledge of the area.

“Whether my client is buying real estate or selling their home, I have the drive and the understanding to make it all work,” says Debbie, who has more than 20 years of experience in the real-estate business. “I know that selling real estate is not just about finding a house to show my clients. Selling real estate is about finding a lifestyle.”


Whether it’s for a vacation home or your next luxury or estate home, Debbie specializes as a buyer’s agent, listing agent, and relocation expert. Here’s what one satisfied Zillow client had to say about her:

“Debbie has exceptional knowledge and helped us find a gem in College Park. She was very direct and willing to show us as many homes as we wanted to see, always with a great attitude.”


But even with Debbie’s wealth of fundamental real-estate knowledge, keeping relevant in the industry is a top priority for her. She takes the time to be active in professional development efforts. She is a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Club and a graduate of the Orlando Regional Realtor Association Leadership Institute, for example.


Debbie is also a member of the National Association of Realtors and the Florida Association of Realtors. She holds both e-PRO and New Home  Consultant certifications.


“I take great pride in using my expertise, resources, and global connections to perfectly unite homes with buyers,” says Debbie. “I believe each home reflects one’s self expression, and I’m confident that I’ve mastered the art of connecting the two.


Debbie enjoys talking with people about the assets of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, explaining that Sotheby’s serves clients across the entire spectrum of the real-estate market. The company lists and shows everything from $100,000 into the millions.


Sotheby’s offers global marketing – both traditional and innovative – including a new Apple TV channel that showcases top-notch Sotheby’s listings directly in the living rooms of millions of potential buyers.
