About Debbie Barnhart
Thanks for visiting my website. I have been a full-time REALTOR® since January, 2000. My son and I moved to the Quad Cities in 1998 when my husband Dave and I married. Prior to that I was in banking for 15 years. Part of my banking years were spent preparing docs for our real estate department, and that's when my interest in becoming a REALTOR® began. In the QCA I worked as an Executive Assistant for a corporation that had a subsidiary real estate firm. After a year in that position, I joined their real estate company.
In 2002 I made the move to RE/MAX River Cities, and I am so glad I did! I joined the ownership of the company in 2010, and in 2015 my partners and I sold the business to a new owner.
During my real estate career, I have taken many classes that have earned me the designations of CRS (Certified Real Estate Specialist), ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative) and CNE (Certified Negotiation Expert). As a REALTOR®, I continue to take yearly continuing education to maintain my license and keep abreast of changes.
I am a multi-million dollar producer having won awards in the RE/MAX Presidential Club, 100% Club and Hall of Fame. But for me it isn't all about how much I sell; it's about caring for my clients and doing the best job for them. I will advise, but it is up to my clients as to what they want to do. I would describe myself as ethical, caring, and energetic.
I have two adult sons who each have two daughters. They, along with my husband, would vouch that I am constantly texting, emailing or talking with clients on my phone. That is probably my biggest downfall—being too available—but that's good for you! If I can't take a call, I always make sure to get back in touch as soon as I can.
While growing up in southeast Iowa, we always boated, and boating continues to be a favorite past-time. I love to laugh with friends and socialize, and when I can, hit a good exercise class that involves dancing. I am also a member of the Iowa Quad Cities Rotary Club and will soon be ending a 4-yr term on our Quad Cities Area Realtor Association Board of Directors.
