REALTOR® of the Year is the highest honor that this Board can bestow upon one of its members. The Award is presented annually to a REALTOR® nominated by their peers, then selected by the REALTOR® of the Year Committee, which is an impartial panel made up of past REALTORS® of the Year. The Committee reviews all nominations, taking into consideration the member’s involvement in civic affairs and participation in local, state and national committees. They also consider the member’s REALTOR® spirit and business accomplishments.
At the annual dinner for the Southeast Alaska Board of REALTORS, this award was presented to Debbie White, Broker/Owner of Prudential Southeast Alaska Real Estate.
Debbie is a long time resident of Juneau and obtained her salesperson license in 1999. She worked for two other real estate offices prior to opening her own brokerage in 2008. Within six months she received the Prudential Real Estate franchise for Southeast Alaska.
Debbie is a Graduate of the REALTORS® Institute (GRI), and Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) and will soon obtain her Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation. She has also served on the Board of REALTORS® in several capacities, including as president.
When she is not helping people buy real estate, Debbie is very active within her community. In addition to the Board of REALTORS® she has served on the boards of Southeast Alaska Master Gardeners and Juneau Youth Wrestling. In 2005, Debbie won the Golden North Salmon Derby and repaid the efforts by serving as fundraising chair for 2006. She has spear-headed several fundraising efforts when she saw the need in the community. She was involved in early efforts of the Juneau Teen Suicide Prevention program, and volunteered her time with a gardening instructional project at Johnson Youth Center. She is an active member of Juneau Glacier Valley Rotary and Juneau Chamber of Commerce.
In her spare time, Debbie enjoys gardening, fishing, hiking and other activities. She also loves to cook and wants to write her own cookbook someday. She also enjoys spending time with her family and recently started learning the art of wood turning.
