Debra’s Team

Debra Dobbs

DEBRA is the General of The Dobbs Group and a committed workaholic, with a quirky playful side, though when it comes to her clients she is a fierce warrior. Debra enjoys selling real estate and helping people buy their dream homes. When she can’t work she enjoys growing fig trees, making Wacky Girl Margaritas, and watching movie marathons while snuggling with her daughter Kat and their 4 playful doggies, Winston, Tapper, and Stella.

KATE – adaptive, organized and focused, Kate has been in the real estate industry since 2009. With a focus in the West Loop, South Loop, Lincoln Square, North Center, and Gold Coast neighborhoods, Kate brings her patience, tenacity, and empathetic communication skills, to each and every client. Thirteen years of experience in real estate on top of Kate’s background in marketing, project management, and customer service offers her a unique perspective to provide clients with grounded, thoughtful advice and first-class customer service. Kate is fluent in English and Bulgarian.

KATHARINE Dobbs is continuing the family business by joining her Mother’s team. Growing up in Chicago, accompanying Debra to countless showings as a youngster, and a knack for identifying up and coming neighborhoods has given this gal a leg up in beginning her career in real estate. When she’s not working as part of the operations dynamic duo, you’ll find her
sailing along the lakefront, cooking up a storm, or planning her next weekend getaway.

IZABELLE is a Chicago native, born and raised in North Center. A marketing alumn from Northern Illinois University, Izabelle has used her business savvy skills to take on the role of Director of Operations at The Dobbs Group. When she is not managing client relations, projects, and marketing, you can find her at the lake front enjoying a jog. Izabelle loves yoga, art, and spending time with her tight knit family. The oldest of 4, Izabelle is the manager you want on your team.
