Debra Berman and Pat Kandel’s names are synonymous with real estate partnerships. They were pioneers in this real estate team concept starting in 1985, when the team of Berman-Kandel was established. Debra and Pat were both top producing agents for the Jon Douglas Company, which later was merged and became Coldwell Banker Co. They were often in competition for the same clients, so they decided to join forces and “conquer the real estate world”! They were ahead of the crowd, and spent many years establishing the Berman Kandel brand and teaching other agents around the country, how their partnership worked.
Their main thrust was to have a partnership based on commitment, professionalism and service to their clients. This full service luxury Real Estate team, pride themselves in diligence and hard work, along with constant communication with their clients. Berman Kandel have established a tremendous network of other professionals who are ready to help their clients with loans, staging, repairs, both minor and major, all with the goal of making the home buying or selling process as effortless as possible.
Prior to real estate, Pat was the director of Sales and Catering of a hotel chain and Debra was an elementary school teacher.
