Deborah Cousins


Deborah Cousins is a veteran Realtor® serving the Santa Cruz area. Deborah graduated from the University of California with a double major in legal studies and philosophy in 1995. After graduating, she worked in the human resources department for a tech company until 1999, when she obtained her real estate license and became a full-time Realtor®, which she has been doing ever since. Deborah’s education in legal studies gave her a strong foundation and comfort with legal contracts, which has been a very useful skill as a Realtor®. Additionally, her human resources experience has taught her to be a great listener.

Deborah loves working with all people, and her core values include honesty, integrity, compassion, hard work, understanding, and kindness. It’s with this mindset that she serves each of her clients. She is passionate about serving her community and her clients through every aspect of the real estate process — be it buying or selling a home — and providing up-to-the-minute information and resources on the current real estate market and value of their home.

Deborah is originally from Scotland. Her family immigrated to the United States in 1986, originally to the East Coast, where she attended high school and Penn State University. Her family relocated to Santa Cruz in 1991 when her father’s job was transferred to Silicon Valley. Deborah has traveled throughout all of Europe, Australia, and the United States and loves meeting people from other countries, backgrounds, and walks of life.

Deborah is also an avid animal lover and is currently training to volunteer at the local SPCA. Her dream is to one day open her own animal rescue sanctuary in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains. Some of Deborah’s hobbies include spending time outdoors, hiking, running, swimming, and enjoying the beautiful beaches of Santa Cruz.
