Debbie Leable is the owner of Cornerstone Realty Group located at 735 Sheridan Rd., in Winthrop Harbor. Cornerstone is a full service realty office and can do what any real estate company can do, only better. Every agent is licensed in Illinois and Wisconsin and there is always an agent to greet you when you come in... not a receptionist. Since Cornerstone is independent they can be more relaxed, personable, and flexible.
Debbie was born and raised here until she was 13. Her family moved but stayed in Lake County. Before the move, she met a boy named Ed. He was to become her future husband, although neither one of them knew that at the time. In 1981 she moved to Florida. She eventually got married and shortly after that she had a son, named Joseph (Joe) after his father. But Debbie's husband was not ready to settle down, and she found herself a single mother. She never forgot about Ed, though.
Debbie was determined to give her son the best possible life she could. She opened her own title company and it was successful. Debbie eventually moved back to the area in 1996. She found Ed, struck up a friendship, and in 1998, they got married. They have a daughter named Emily, and Ed has 2 sons, Erik and Brent. Lumpy, their basset hound, rounds out the family!
Cornerstone began in 1982. Debbie came on board in 2010, becoming owner, with Ed, 2 years later. She said, "I love real estate and helping people." Debbie also loves doing a lot for the community and for charities, such as Wounded Warriors. Look for "Mr. and Mrs. Claus" this year as well. She would love to see you. Also look for Cornerstone in the parade... last year they won "Best Theme"!
