Chad & Liz

We are Chad and Liz F., middle-aged parents of two and budding entrepreneurs. Debbie Raw helped us purchase a home in Tucker earlier this year, which we chose for the affordability and for the good school district. It is also close to my (Liz) work at Emory University in Decatur, with a relatively peaceful commute.

Chad likes to read, exercise, make healthy smoothies, and tend to the home and kids. We are both writers — this year, Chad published a book entitled “A 5S Revolution” about organization processes, and I wrote and published a book called “Costa Rica Dreamers: 7 Portraits” about our consciously unemployed gap year in Costa Rica in 2015. So we both became published authors this year – lifelong goal achieved! I like to make art of all kinds and write, too. We also have a very popular blog at, and — we enjoy sharing our various journeys with the world and with our friends and family all over the world.

Our experience working with Debbie was phenomenal! She was always there for us, and went WAY above and beyond at every opportunity. She is kind, funny, responsive, attentive, organized, and part therapist/part real estate agent! Debbie made our whole home-buying experience quite effortless and she was always responsive to our questions and worries. Her opinions and advice are well-educated, level headed, and thoughtful. For our purchase, she went way out of her job description, basically rescuing the process as it fell apart at the very end. We are eternally grateful to her for helping us get into our new home.
