David O’Brien

David O’Brien has lived in Southern Pines since 1988.  Prior to getting his Real Estate license, David had quite an extensive career in the equestrian sport of Three Day Eventing.  With well over 20 seasons competing at the international level, David also owns and manages a full-scale training facility in Southern Pines.  David has trained many horses and riders to compete at the highest levels of the equestrian sport. These life experiences have given David a uniquely strong perspective when working with buyers looking to purchase a farm or even land on which to build their dream farm.

In addition to David’s vast equestrian background, he has a strong sense of family.  He and his wife Lauren, have 2 children that were born and raised in Southern Pines.  They do many activities together and have a strong family unit.  This is very valuable, especially when David is working with families with children moving to our area seeking information and advice about our school systems and all the activities available for their kids.

He has been with McDevitt Town & Country Properties for several years, and is quite well versed on the availability of farms, land, and homes for sale in the place he loves calls home! David has never considered himself a salesperson, but rather a consultant whose job it is to advise and help buyers through the process of purchasing a property that best suits their needs. Call on David to get started buying the farm or home of your dreams…. he will always be there when you need him!

Deborah Cook

Deborah Cook joined McDevitt Town and Country Properties after she said goodbye to corporate life in sunny California to live the good life in North Carolina. Looking to infuse southern charm into everyday living – she chose Pinehurst for the peaceful and tranquil beauty found in the heart of the Sandhills community. A longtime California resident, Deborah graduated from the University of San Diego with a Bachelor’s degree in Business and an MBA in marketing. Deborah spent more than 20 years in Los Angeles heading up and directly managing two direct mail marketing companies. Hers was a position requiring perseverance, tenacity and communication skills as she worked with a diverse customer base. Her love of people, beautiful homes and the art of a “good deal” led her to a career in real estate.

Today, as a successful real estate professional, she is bringing those same skills and talents to an equally broad spectrum of discriminating clients. Her business approach is direct and successful; she listens to her client’s needs and matches them to the right property and then assures an honest and efficient transaction. To date, Deborah has helped her buyers secure solid investment properties, worked with military families to locate the perfect home and assisted retirees looking to dust off their clubs so they can enjoy the world famous Pinehurst courses they have dreamed of playing.

Buyers moving to beautiful Moore County have a list of questions and Deborah helps navigate the uncertainties of moving to a new place with ease. Each new client has a myriad of questions to be answered and Deborah always goes the extra mile to get quick results. It’s more than finding the perfect home – it’s everything you need to weave all the elements of an upscale, southern community into your life. Deborah loves to play golf especially with her husband who is a scratch golfer. It’s great to get “free golf lessons” on the course! She loves to entertain and is always whipping up a new Barefoot Contessa recipe to share with family and friends.

Harlee wanted to be just like her older brother, Foster and come to the office every day. When Jamie didn’t take her ... she would pout. So ...sometime in 2011, Jamie decided to start bringing them both! Since then ... Harlee LOVES coming to the office and sitting under Jamie’s desk!

Harlee came to Jamie as a “foster” puppy when she was only 4 weeks old. We think she is an Australian Shepherd and Husky mix. Jamie was a foster failure and Harlee became part of the family! Now she is part of the McDevitt Town and Country family as well! Stop by the office anytime to see her!
