Basic 03/Iraq 08
My family and I have been proud to call Central Texas home since moving here in 1988 with the Army. Since that time, the Heart of the Lone Star State has hosted many of our "firsts": Our first home purchase, the birth of our son, the launch of our quarter horse breeding program, and the purchase of our first property investments, to name a few. Last, but not least, while my background was in foreign languages and economics, I found my first career calling: journalism. That path worked with the mobile lifestyle of being an Army wife. But once that chapter ended and we chose to make Central Texas our home, my focus turned to real estate.
Since April 2001, we have been an "Austin-Fort Hood" couple. The Austin metro and southern Bell County are a wonderful place to live, work and raise a successful family. We know: After graduating from area schools, our daughter is in veterinary medicine and served her country in Iraq with the National Guard; our son is a member of one of the Marine Corps' most elite helicopter units.
Raised in southern Africa and Europe, I have found my home
in the great state of Texas. Looking forward to helping you find
yours. Debbie Stevenson, North Team broker
