Deb Bastable

Licensed Real Estate Agent/Auctioneer

I entered the world of real estate with a long and established background in customer service spending 30 years as an on board Customer Services Manager with Qantas. This challenging role endowed me with exceptional people skills and ability to deal effectively and efficiently with most situations. However, my family’s decision to relocate to Port Macquarie prompted me to consider a new career. Along with the rest of my family, we are now committed members of the Port Macquarie community and volunteers with a variety of local sporting associations. With a passionate interest in homes, developments and localities, real estate became my natural choice for my new career. My professional background now provides me with a strong understanding of the values of effective marketing. Accordingly, I use the exceptional resources of LJ Hooker to make sure that my clients properties receive maximum exposure to potential buyers.

I have completed the award winning professional training to become a Liveability Real Estate Specialist in order to maximise the results for my customers by fully understanding how to identify an additional 17 Liveability Property Marketing Features™ and market and promote their benefits to buyers.

Debra assisted in the process of marketing and selling my home to an extremely high standard. Although the process could have been stressful for me, Debra ensured - through constant communication, reassurance and her professionalism that I felt comfortable and had a full understanding step by step of what was happening and expected time frames. It was clear to me that Debra knew the market and has extensive knowledge of her industry. I was particularly impressed with Debra's high ethical standards and would highly recommend Debra to anyone seeking to sell their property.

Judi Isaac

We’ve bought and sold a couple of times now and have used LJ Hooker on each occasion. Debra Bastable from the Port Macquarie office, and Wayne Heilman from Laurieton have both impressed us as being entirely professional, efficient and honest. It was a pleasure to work with both of these agents as we felt confident that they were doing their very best for us and always kept us fully informed. And we had good outcomes!

Jeff and Debbie

Joe and I really appreciate the huge effort Deb put into finally securing a sale. Throughout this whole process she was incredibly professional, transparent at all times, prompt at returning emails and phone calls and was always approachable on any difficulties that might arise. This has been a long slow process but eventually due to Deb's hard work and diligence we achieved our goal. Many thanks again Deb for all your help and if any of our friends are looking for a real estate agent we will definitely recommend you.

Marita and Joe McMahon

Deb Bastable went above and beyond what I considered an agent would work. Always contactable and very approachable. I would highly recommend her as an agent to friends and family.

Joanne and Robin Ayres Port Macquarie

Deb very helpful in all aspects of the sale. Selling my property became a long drawn out saga, primarily because of the wilful stupidity of Port Macquarie Council and their blinkered attitude to Asset Protection Zones. Supposedly, they have a knowledge of Bushfire Hazards, but I found it very difficult to interpret this so called knowledge with the 'on the ground' conditions in respect of the unique quality of my vacant block of land. So frustrating but Deb Bastable handled the interchange of myself, the Council and prospective clients with professionalism and calmness. I would recommend Deb to anybody wishing to avail themselves of a Real Estate agent who can handle the slings and arrows of protracted negotiations and come through still smiling (I hope) and achieve the satisfaction of a vendor who despaired at times at the inanity of the process. Thank you Deb.

Roy Edwards Upper Hunter Valley

Deb's efforts have driven the prices of the units in our complex up in recent times an it was a no-brainer to go with the local expert.

J & M McMahon

I would definitely recommend Deb Bastable to my friends. I always felt I could ask her anything and discuss all situations.

Dorothy McRae-McMahon (Petersham, Sydney)

Deb kept us informed on every stage of the sale. We appreciated her authentic manner.

Steve Ralphs, Berowra Heights

Deb was the right agent for me, at the time I had a very ill husband and needed someone that was sensitive to our needs. My husband passed away, and Deb again was understanding and made every effort to make the selling process as easy as possible for me. I would recommend Deb Bastable to anyone thinking of selling, as you would have an agent that is hardworking, honest, and sensitive to your needs, and believe me thats important. Thanks Deb.
