Welcome to my SouthFLHomes.com website. I'm Debbie Bates, and here you can search for your dream home, whether it's a spacious single family home, modern townhouse or luxury condo. My site is fast, easy and contains the most up to date Broward County MLS listings available on the internet, with properties updated every 5 minutes. I searched far & wide to find a web provider who could deliver a property search to rival Zillow, Trulia & Realtor.com, yet be tailored to our local South Florida market. And unlike Zillow, you won't find stale listings here.
As a Realtor since 1998, I specialize in waterfront properties in Fort Lauderdale, along with luxury homes in Plantation, Davie, Weston, Coral Springs and other surrounding cities that make up the Greater Fort Lauderdale area.
A Fort Lauderdale resident since the age of 5, I've watched Fort Lauderdale grow from a small town to one of the largest cities in America. Traveling anywhere, if I mention I'm from Fort Lauderdale, people automatically envision beautiful, sunny South Florida, where you can go to the beach year round! Whether you're looking for life in the big city or something more laid back, chances are you can find it here. On the outskirts of Fort Lauderdale lies Plantation, "Where the Grass is Greener," and there's the Town of Davie, where you can still find horses, cattle, farms and nurseries. To the west is the newer city of Weston, which was incorporated in 1996 and features beautiful gated communities, lush landscaping, wide roads and A-rated schools. Other nearby cities include Sunrise, Tamarac and Coral Springs, just to name a few. Having grown up and lived in the area all my life, I am familiar with all of Broward County and would love to help you with your real estate needs.
I hope you will take some time to look through my website and search for homes for sale. My property searches are easy, fast and the best you'll find anywhere on the internet! You can use the search box above or if you have a particular city in mind, click on the links to the right and search that city. So whether you're looking for a home or just curious about home sales in your neighborhood, run a search, feel free to save it and sign up for market updates if you'd like to stay informed about Real Estate in your area!

This is the one for you if you want a caring, efficient and effective real estate professional! I had to sell my parents' condo in Florida while undergoing surgery in California! Debbie made it possible, no, she made it easy as she went above and beyond to take care of everything in my absence. She showed such respect for my Mother as she found us a buyer and assisted in the negotiations for a quick sale. She took care of many of the details I would usually expect a realtor to pass on to me. We could not have done it without her. Do not hesitate...do yourself a favor and hire Debbie!

Debbie was wonderful helping us sell our home in Weston. It's so important that you have someone who is honest & knowledgeable on your side, and Debbie is the one. She was patient and very accessible throughout the whole process from preparing the listing to follow up after closing. She set the standard for staging in our neighborhood--once she used a drone for photos, all the other Realtors did too!

Truly Professional Agent - Working with Debbie was a pleasure. She acted as part salesperson and part consultant; helping my sister and I through a difficult time, selling our mother's home following her death. When Debbie takes on a client, she always keeps herself available and works with you to ensure that she represents your needs. I am not looking for a new home at this time, but when I am ready to buy, I will be contacting her first!
