Get to Know Debbie Kirkland

I've been a REALTOR since 2002, and loved every minute of my job! It's been a journey of epic proportions, wading through the rise and fall of the market boom and crash, and now dealing with short sales, foreclosures and distressed properties needing tons of renovation to design and development of new homes and large acreage sales.  Through it all I can say, there is no other job as challenging, or as rewarding as real estate.

I started First Sstory Real Estate Company in 2014 after years of planning and design for a brand that speaks to higher values and service to both customers and agents. We are forward thinking, moving in the direction of the future of the real estate profession, rising to the challenges of the real estate industry and serving our customers with a balance of technology and a deeper human connection.

I rank in the TOP 5% of Realtors in my area, and attribute that to very, very long work weeks and personal attention to detail that I provide both to customers and my fellow Realtors! I believe it makes a difference to get to know your clients, to treat them as friends and to maintain relationships after a sale or purchase.

I pride myself in not only selling property in Tallahassee and the surrounding 5 county area,.. but in introducing people to all that north Florida has to offer. Who better to ask for details and insight than a 4th generation native?  Life is good here from the Capitol to the forgotten coast. There is much to see, and much to do... and believe it or not.. I manage to squeeze time in for some fun on occasion!

New Construction, Lot Sales, Development and Fine Homes are my specialties. I refer customers to agents all across the United States and overseas.

 Professionally, I hold the CRS (Certified Residential Specialist). SFR (Short Sale and Foreclosure Specialist, SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist), GREEN and E-PRO certifications, the Certified Leadership Graduate. I served theTallahassee Board of Realtors as a 2012 President, Communications committee,  and  Governmental Affairs Chair for TBR. I have served on a State level as the 2014 Disctrict 8 Vice President, as a 4 year Director on the Florida Association Board of Realtors as well as Strategic Planning Chair, Industry Data Analysis Chair, Public Policy, RPIC, and Emerging Technology committees. I believe in continued education and networking and believe it has given me the edge that is appealing to customers and other referral agents.

Networking is important to me and you will find me on the following social and professional networks.

You will find me talking about my experiences, and about my hometown Tallahassee on my blogs, and in trade magazine articles and interviews. If you are ever in Tallahassee, FL give me a shout at 850-212-0440! I'll show you around the city!


My entire family has been in construction as far back as I can remember. I am extremely knowledgeable of new construction methods and design.  As a result, I sell many new construction homes.  I am very involved with local builders ranging from the high-end builders to those who specialize in affordable housing and remodeling.  I am also a specialist in land sales, such as lots and large acreage tracts for developer investment and contract sales. I have personal marketing experience for large scale proposals for developers right on down to the infamous re-sale listing presentations.

I have a team of young professionals who help bring a fresh outlook into marketing, and in my professional development and who are licensed agents, hungry to please my customers while deriving much pleasure from their experiences in real estate and in networking with other Realtors!

You bring it to us, we will take care of you and your customers!
