“Experience Counts” Licensed since 1978
Debra “Deb” Thony came to the Catskill Region as a young woman when her parents realized their own dream of owning a home in the “country” and bought a 21 bedroom boarding house in the bucolic setting of rural Sullivan County where they enjoyed many summer vacations, until making this region their permanent home.
Deb comes to Catskill Country Real Estate with 40 + years of experience in the fields of law, insurance and real estate, where she worked in many capacities, first as a Paralegal for 20 years in a poverty law firm after graduating business school, then working for the next 15 years in a large corporate insurance company working first in the in house law firm as a Paralegal, then as a Government Relations Analyst, and finally in that same company as a high exposure Senior Medical Malpractice Examiner.
The most recent position Deb held for the past seven years, was as a Real Estate Paralegal working as a “closer” in a small but busy law firm where she worked on every aspect of the real estate transaction, from contract to closing, bringing hundreds of files each year to a successful conclusion, handling as many as three to seven closings per week in the busy season. In this capacity, Deb worked closely with surveyors, inspectors, mortgage brokers, realtors, title companies, as well as other law firms, and both Buyers and Sellers. Her goal was to make sure that the clients were well informed throughout the process, and that attention to detail was given to each file. All this backed up with her business and management experience as mentioned above, and over 25 years of appointments to her local Planning and Grievance Boards, bringing with her a working knowledge of subdivision and zoning laws. Deb is also a licensed NYS Notary Public and has held a NYS Real Estate Salesperson’s License since 1978.
Based on the above, Deb is uniquely qualified to handle your real estate needs, and that is why Catskill Country Real Estate is proud to welcome Deb to its firm.
Deb is married to Bill, current Mayor of the Village of Jeffersonville, and they have three grown children. They are both involved in community and volunteer projects.
