Growing up in a family that invested in properties around the world, HÔM agent Deborah Sado's extensive experience in luxury real estate began at a young age. She developed an eye for quality and craftsmanship that fueled her passions for interior design and architecture and led to a bachelor's degree in design from the University of Western Sydney. Sado is respected among her peers for her strong work ethic and her outstanding customer service and negotiating skills, which she developed as an entrepreneur and successful business owner. As a native of Australia, Sado also understands the unique opportunities and challenges for clients in HÔM Sotheby's global network who are looking to purchase or sell properties in Southern California's coastal communities. In addition to an impeccable professional reputation, Sado's also known for her philanthropic contributions. As a member of the Lighthouse Guild, she organizes and hosts fundraising events for charitable organizations in the Newport Beach area, where she lives with her family and serves on the board of the homeowners' association, and she makes a contribution to the charity of her client's choice from every commission.
