Deborah Steel


From Designer Shoes to Open Homes!

Buying a house can be just like buying a pair of shoes … it has to be a great fit!

After owning a successful shoe boutique in Hamilton for 15 years, I know the importance of a great fit. My commitment to you will be to understand your needs, and be a great listener.

With my retail/marketing experience, a love of meeting people and a keen interest in property and interior design, I am determined to deliver only the highest level of service to my clients. 

As I have bought and sold property myself over the years I have had personal experience of many varying levels of service. This experience allows me to eliminate many of the frustrations experienced by buyers and vendors for you.

Whether you are thinking of buying or selling, I will work with you to understand your needs. My focus is always about achieving the best possible result for you, while exceeding your service expectations.

When we decided to upgrade our home a couple of month ago, the process seemed daunting. Not having sold a property before, we did not know what to expect and tried to prepare ourselves for all sorts of outcomes. One thing was clear in our minds: if we find an agent who we can click with, we'll continue the journey, if not, we'll abort mission. From a number of agents we met, Deb stood out. There was something about her, we had a feeling she was the person we were looking for. We were not wrong. After Deb got involved, things started to fall into place, and here we are in our new home. From our experience, it is so important to have a kind, warm, trustworthy and professional person to deal with. All these qualities apply to Deb, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her highly. Thank you Deb, for all your support!

Deb Steel was our selling agent for a property we subdivided with both a renovated house and a section to sell.  Deb came to us with all the details we needed to make an informed decision about how we could sell these properties and then worked tirelessly to make this happen.  She works with a great team at Lugtons who are there to give support if needed.  I have known Deb for many years and she is passionate about the career she has chosen.  I would recommend her to anyone who needs to sell or purchase a property.

I worked with Deborah Steel as my Buyer’s Agent during the recent purchase of my investment property.  It was a pleasure to work with Deborah on the process of securing the property. She listened to my criteria and came back with a great list of potential opportunities, which lead to me purchasing one of them. I was extremely grateful to have Deborah there to navigate the process with me. Deborah bought a sound, professional and caring nature. She was an excellent communicator during the whole process and her knowledge/connections for property management were also great in helping me find a property manager for my investment. I would be very happy to give Deborah my highest recommendation for anyone needing an estate agent.

Deborah worked hard to find the right house for our ‘ Do Up’ project after listening to and understanding our requirements. The buying process went smooth from start to finish. Look forward to working with Deborah on our next project.

We worked with Deborah Steel at Lugtons Real Estate to find a suitable house in the Hamilton area. Deborah quickly identified the type of house and area that we were most interested in and this saved us a significant amount of time. She provided us with up-to-date information on existing and future property listings and was able to arrange early viewings across a number of real estate agencies. We ended up purchasing a house that Deborah informed us was coming onto the market and we were able to promptly engage with the vendors. We would have no hesitation in recommending Deborah to people considering buying or selling a home in Hamilton.
