Debra Jaffe

Debra’s real estate career originated in Hidden Hills, a unique community of custom homes, where she began conducting property appraisals. She realized that her appraisal expertise would translate effectively into advising clients on market values, so she joined The Agency, the dynamic brokerage that echoes her appreciation for collaboration and innovative marketing practices.

She has quickly catapulted herself into the top rank of agents with her voluminous experience working with high-profile buyers and sellers in a groundbreaking 2013 year. Top priced transactions she’s been involved in include Brentwood Park to Beverly Hills, Calabasas to Toluca Lake.

Early in her career, Debra worked as a credentialed teacher in public and private schools. She brings with her strong problem solving and communication skills, organization, negotiating tactics and the ability to educate others--all of which strengthen her ability to navigate complex real estate transactions.

A California native, Debra’s ties to the community are deep and numerous. Long familiar with neighborhoods from West Los Angeles to the San Fernando Valley and Manhattan Beach, Debra specializes in luxury residences: both single-family and condominiums. Her loyalty, commitment to service, integrity and attention to detail help her achieve excellent results for her clients. Debra’s proud of her reputation for individualized customer service, and she is passionate about helping both buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals.

Currently residing in Brentwood, Debra enjoys spending time and traveling with her two children.


Every now and then, you catch a break. Like the day in our lives when Craig Knizek and Debra Jaffe propped up their "The Agency" sign in our front yard and the other guy took his down. Didn't seem to matter to them that our house had been shopped like a bad movie script for months.

So they went to work--strategizing, creating and conducting open houses, advertising and guiding us through all the mind-numbing paperwork, inspections, negotiations and down-to-the-wire don't-flinch stare downs. High level drama. Fun to watch, actually.

The house sold--in our favor and at our price. And Craig and Debra shrugged like it was the only possible outcome, like it was never in doubt, slam dunk, walk in the park, all that.

And now they have gone off to other real estate adventures, sort of like the conquering characters in a movie, and my own downtime can be spent recalling how these two gifted professionals shepherded my wife and me through the emotional roller coaster ride of selling a house with their super-sharp skill set of integrity, good old-fashioned smarts, incredible patience and understanding. Like I said, sometimes you catch a break.
