Associate Real Estate Broker

Debbie Allan believes there are 10 vital characteristics in a great real estate professional – to have knowledge of the local market; to be
organized with attention to detail; to provide exceptional client service; to be well connected; to be savvy with social media channels and cutting-edge technology; to be an excellent communicator; to be honest; to be hardworking and tenacious; to be enthusiastic, and to have great sense of humor.

Debbie grew up in Dutchess County and started her love for real estate as a local builder’s daughter. At a young age, Debbie learned the key principals of honesty, goodwill and hard work by watching her father, Raymond Croniser, build his residential building company, Croniser Construction Corp., into a well-known and highly respected brand in the local real estate market. Debbie worked for the family company as a teenager well into early adulthood learning the inner-workings of the business, from drawing up contracts to aiding with color selections and marketing up blueprints with clients to cleaning out homes to prepare for final walk-throughs. This experience built a solid foundation for the real estate career that was in her future.  Debbie has also been integral in supporting and managing her husband’s building and contracting company.

With over 26 years in real estate, Debbie has owned and operated two very successful real estate brokerages. She has substantial experience in selling residential real estate and, additionally, with management, marketing and training know-how. Committed to a career in real estate, Debbie has always placed a high priority on continuing education to stay on top of the latest information, laws, technology and skills. In New York State, to sell real estate you are required to be a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson and take continuing education classes every two years. Debbie has gone above and beyond this requirement, earning the title of Licensed Real Estate Broker. Additionally, she has earned prestigious industry designations, including Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), e-PRO Internet Professional (e-PRO), Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI), Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) and Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES). These designations reflect a commitment to the highest standards in the real estate industry.
