Debbie Merritt Real Estate Whidbey Island

A difficult chapter in my life story led me to Whidbey Island over 18 years ago out of necessity. I became a widow of a disabled veteran with two young kids 5 years after we moved to Whidbey. Looking back, I realize how fortuitous the decision to move here was because Whidbey offered a wonderful place to raise our 12 and 9 years old (at the time). I knew that they were going to be living in a supportive community environment and receive a great education.

Moving to Whidbey also allowed me the opportunity to begin my real estate career over 18 years ago. This was much different from anything I had done before but I quickly grew to love it and can’t imagine doing anything else. I love what I do, and I love working in a military community and helping those who serve our country.

Selling and Buying homes comes with many challenges and is in a constant state of change. New government policies, financial sector shifts, what current buyers are looking for, how they’re using technology to communicate and find information are all things that affect the process. You need a guide who keeps current on these changes and knows how you can take advantage and get an edge in any market. As a full time real estate agent and someone who prides herself on staying informed I will be able to ensure that you will reach your goals.

It was a pleasure working with Debbie Merritt in the sale of our home on Whidbey Island. Her knowledge of the market is unparalleled and throughout the listing, she offered wisdom and assurance that gave us confidence throughout the process. What really sets Debbie apart are the many small touches she adds to selling your home, like personalized staging, professional photos and video, and strong relationships with other agents. I recommend Debbie for any real estate needs on Whidbey Island. She is the best and I am so glad I had the opportunity to work with her. Kind regards, Cori Parker

Debbie was absolutely fantastic in every aspect of the sale. We have used her before to help find our house and had no hesitation in having her list our house. She is a true professional.

Seller & Buyer

Debbie has been wonderful to work with, not only recently but also in the past. We met Debbie when purchasing our first home in Oak Harbor and she was the sellers agent. We feel in love with her and have been using her since. Earlier this year she listed our home and we had an acceptable offer in just a couple days. Then she helped us on a hunt for a new place to call home. She is always easy to get a hold of, flexible with her schedule for showings and is a wonderful advocate for her buyers. Debbie always goes above and beyond!!!

Debbie is a great Realtor who gets the job done and does what you ask her to. She is flexible with appointments and held multiple open houses on our listing. I highly suggest using Debbie if you are in need of a realtor to list your property!



Debbie represented me when I bought my first home back in 2002. Only fitting she be the one to help me sell it. She is amazing. From start to finish she guided me step by step. I never felt pressured or pushed. She always kept me in the loop of what was going on within the process. Always available when I called or texted. I had a moment where I started to panic (getting close to closing and me needing to find a place), she was instrumental in calming me down and giving me assurance. I highly recommend her
