Debran, a native North Carolinian, moved to Washington, DC in 1993 to pursue her passion for historic preservation, art, architecture, and interior design. For over 20 years, she has combined these skills into a successful and rewarding career in residential real estate.

Both buyers and sellers appreciate Debran’s dependability, honesty, responsiveness, and relentless attention to detail.

A graduate of Wake Forest University with a BA in Art History and a concentration in Interior Design from Salem College, Debran finds these skills to be an advantage for her clients.

Debran and her two sons reside in North Arlington, where her children are currently attending Williamsburg Middle School and Discovery Elementary.  Supporting the local community and small businesses is important to Debran. Over the years she has been involved in leadership roles for various non-profit fundraising events, hosted an art show to benefit the local non-profit, Homestretch, organized the Old Dominion Neighborhood Day and Market, served as a docent at the National Building Museum, volunteered with the Junior League of Washington, as co-president of the Wake Forest Alumni Club of DC, and served on the Wake Forest Alumni Council.

Client Testimonials

My wife and I made the difficult decision to switch from our long time realtor over to Debran after she volunteered to run a market analysis and pull comparable listings in the area. We were so impressed by the depth of her analysis and knowledge of the Northern Virginia real estate market, so we signed an agreement with her almost right away. We were beyond satisfied with her level of service and coordination. Since we live out of town, it was important to have an agent who could represent us to contractors on the property and negotiate the best service rates possible, which she did.
Her support in the staging, listing, and showing process was top notch. We fielded multiple offers after the first open house and Debran took the time to break down the pros and cons of each offer. She was available to take our calls anytime, day and night, and always treated us with respect and patience. Most importantly, Debran represented us to buyer agents with trust and transparency. We were confident in her ability as our trusted proxy, which made the entire process as easy as it could be.
If you are thinking of selling your home, we highly recommend using Debran McClean as your agent!

As a first-time home buyer, I could not be happier with Debran’s service, professionalism, and guidance. She started with an orientation to the home buying process and clearly explained the costs and challenges of buying in DC upfront including the fast-paced market. Throughout the search phase, she was flexible and responsive to my needs even when I had difficulty pinpointing a specific like or dislike. I especially appreciated how precisely Debran tailored her suggestions to my criteria while also respecting my budget. She was always willing to go the extra mile and examine all the options to make my offer as competitive as possible while also protecting me as a buyer. Overall, I felt confident making the largest purchase of my life knowing she had done her research, prioritized my needs, and delivered on her promise to provide first-class service. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Debran and her great colleagues to buy my first home!

Debran did a magnificent job getting our townhouse ready for market and closing the deal. From picking out paint and flooring to advertising and staging, Debran went the extra mile to make the place a sure seller. The result: on the market Friday, under contract above the asking price on Monday! Follow her advice and you will be amazed at the outcome!

-Preston P.

Debran was, by far, the most pleasant part of our recent home buying experience. Having dealt with multiple realtors during the past decade in the Washington DC area, Debran distinguished herself by providing excellent expertise, unmatched responsiveness, and the utmost professionalism. We relied on her for her professional support, but she also provided a personal touch that helped us through what turned out to be a complex real estate transaction. I would recommend her to others without reservation!
