    Debra Tocco



    Real Estate has been a part of who I am for many years and I offer this with a professionalism and respect that this profession deserves to give to clients. I first became licensed in 1994 in Los Angeles selling vacant land and providing mortgage loans to first time home buyers and members of the military. I moved to Sarasota in 2001 from Los Angeles with my 3 children to be with family (mom, sis, aunts, uncles, cousin!) and enjoy the more relaxed style of living that Sarasota offers. In 2002 I received my real estate license and mortgage brokers license in Florida and began my career in Sarasota on Siesta Key. Now that all my children are grown and moving in their own direction my husband built our new home on a golf course in the Venice community and here we are making our life as well as our business. I have chosen Realty Partners LLC to work with based on the shared honest desire to help our clients realize their ideal home and needs. Contact Me and I will help guide you on the right path for your step in real estate whether selling your home or purchasing your new home!
