Deanna began her real estate career earlier than most – literally right out of high school! In fact, she started real estate school while still in high school. She came by it naturally by watching her mother, longtime Fayetteville REALTOR Anne Locklear, assist families with their real estate needs.
In the 13 years since first earning her real estate license, Deanna has specialized in working with investors and first time homebuyers – specifically with an interest in foreclosure and investment property. This is a specialized area where her expertise and knowledge are key to her clients’ success. “I stay very hands-on involved with my clients all through the transaction and beyond closing,” says Deanna. “I work hard to continue to serve my clients again and again as well as taking care of the people that they refer to me. It’s always my goal to meet and exceed client expectations.”
With Buyers, Deanna provides not only her knowledge and experience but works to always educate the client through the entire process. “I truly listen and respond to your needs and questions. Too often these days things happen so fast and go in one ear and out the other and are lost in the translation. I don’t let that happen,” says Deanna.
For her Sellers, she focuses great attention and experience on making sure their home gets great marketing with everything from the photos to the property description. And she keeps her seller clients fully informed and involved in the listing process through every step of the marketing plan to inspections, repairs and negotiations – all the way to a successful closing. “Constant communication is the key,” she says.
“Bottom line, I just love helping people – that’s really my thing! Even if it’s really small, knowing that I helped someone in any way fulfills my day.”
Deanna is very active in helping and supporting her community and industry as well. She serves on multiple committees with her local Board of REALTORS as well as being involved in local community projects for food collection and so much more.
