Elizabeth (BJ) DeBree

Relationships and trust are paramount to success in real estate.  Over the course of my 30+ year career with BHHS Fox & Roach, I have leveraged my network of friends and professional peers to build one of the most impactful real estate practices in Monmouth County.  Long-term success in this industry is achieved via satisfied clients and positive referrals.  My commitment to these clients is unwavering and my breadth of experience ensures smooth, advantageous, and stress-free real estate transactions.   

As a life-long resident of Monmouth County, I am intimately familiar with the Shore Points' communities and the market trends impacting local real estate values.

I have two grown sons:  Dwight lives in Chapel Hill, NC where he runs a successful software company.  Derek lives in Middletown, NJ and has joined me in the practice of real estate following an 18-year career in software sales and marketing. 

I have witnessed many changes in the real estate industry over my career.  This new partnership allows me to leverage Derek's sales and marketing expertise and renew my focus on an industry that has rewarded me in so many ways.  We are a good team, and we look forward to working on your behalf.  Thank you for your years of support and trust -- BJ

Determined - Trustworthy - Discrete - Entrepreneurial – Experienced............As you consider one of the largest and more emotional transactions of your life, these are the characteristics you should be looking for in a Realtor.  These traits are my guideposts as a member of BHHS Fox & Roach, Realtors.  I am eager to engage with you, your family, and/or your fellow investors to effect a rewarding real estate exchange.  I take tremendous pride in my ability to assess market opportunities, distill and satisfy the unique needs of my clients, manage complicated transactions, negotiate effectively on my customer’s behalf, and close business efficiently.  I do this with a focus on building positive relationships with sellers, buyers, attorneys, bankers, my fellow Realtors and others integral to a successful transaction.

Born and raised in Monmouth County, I have a comprehensive knowledge of its communities, its schools, its housing market, and its diverse neighborhoods.  My professional and educational experiences have been focused on sales, marketing, and finance.  I am committed to giving back to my community and do so actively as a member of both the Fair Haven Volunteer Fire Department and the Fair Haven First Aid Squad.
