Debbie Pannell Hegardt

Senior Sales Associate


Debbie joined the Terra Firma Global Partners team in 2016 after 18 years of consistently being a top producing Realtor in Sonoma County.

Debbie is a 3rd generation Realtor and follows in her parents and grandparents footsteps of consistency, integrity and perseverance. Before obtaining her real estate license, Debbie spent 6 years at a local title and escrow company learning all of the nuts and bolts of the homeownership process from “behind the scenes”.

“Whether I am helping a first time homebuyer enter into the exciting world of homeownership, a veteran realizing now is a great time to take advantage of their VA benefits, a growing family needing more space, an investor looking for that perfect income opportunity or a retired homeowner looking to downsize, I am honored to be the one they trust to assist them!” says Debbie

With 18 years of experience in an ever changing and challenging real estate environment, Debbie remains steady and calm. She offers guidance, wisdom and friendship along the way.

She is the President of her local BNI chapter with over 60 members who are all local Sonoma County business owners. This venue allows her the opportunity to get to know many different top-notch professionals with the same values, but in different fields. This further enables her to help clients by referring them to trusted sources for their needs in preparing their home for sale, legal and tax advice, and so much more. She truly believes that in order to buy or sell real estate, it takes the skill, patience, determination and trustworthiness of a power team, and prides herself on those relationships.

Debbie’s book of business is strongly weighted on her client referrals by family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc. that have had a successful real estate experience with her before. Debbie says “Receiving a referral like this is by far the best compliment and the testimonials I receive continuously from satisfied clients speak volumes”.

Debbie has lived in Sonoma County most of her life and loves everything about it. When she’s not selling real estate and helping her clients, she enjoys road cycling, running, spending time with her  family raising 2 great teenagers and being with friends outdoors enjoying this gorgeous place she call home.

Client Experience

Debbie is the best! She helped my purchase and sell my home. Debbie managed her way through the madness and complicated sale. It made an otherwise frustrating and difficult process very easy on me and I am thankful for all of her efforts. L. Bennett
Going through the process of buying my first home was kind of crazy, having Debbie working on my behalf made the experience amazing! Debbie answered every question, calmed every concern and helped me navigate this unfamiliar process with tremendous poise, professionalism and humor. I loved working with her! R. Constantini
From the moment I started the process of selling my house with Debbie Hegardt as my listing agent, it was clear that she is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, personable, charismatic and skilled as an agent. The whole experience was wonderful and she was always sensitive to my questions, requests and needs. Debbie went above and beyond what I expected of her and I would certainly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home. L. Common
She was just perfect for me: very patient, explained everything very thoroughly, told be what to expect and gave me a timeline. She also connected me to other experts (for inspections, mortgage, etc.) and I was very pleased with them. I highly recommend Debbie to anyone I meet! I can't imagine anyone being more professional and thorough than she is. She was with me every step of the way! S. Sterhagen
Debbie was my advocate and my partner while also navigating all the business aspects and anticipating issues while brain storming solutions simultaneously. She is very capable, assessable, experienced, efficient and constructive. And, in the middle of many stressful choices, processes and the like - she make the process enjoyable. She is an impressive Real Estate talent. L. Johnson
Debbie has been my agent for over a decade, and has become a friend. She is widely regarded as top in her field, and I feel grateful to have worked with her. Without Debbie's guidance, connections, and expertise, I feel certain that we would not have gotten our dream home. Thankfully we did! My own parents are now going to use Debbie when they are selling/buying in the future. S. Makinano
Debbie was a pleasure to work with and Super Super responsive to any issues. Would highly recommend her to friends (and even enemies). Thanks Debbie. L. Karnstedt
Debbie Hegardt is a true pro. Debbie works the project from multiple angles, always understanding our particular wish list. She moves fast, but always in total control. NEVER did we feel that we were chasing the deal... we always felt in a STRONG position! We formed the right team, took the process seriously, and made it work. R. Ramirez
