Debbie Laubach

(Topeka Business Alliance President)

Coldwell Banker Griffith and Blair

I have been a full time real estate agent since 1990.  I understand that buying and selling real estate can be stressful.  I will work hard to lower your stress level and make your experience as pleasurable as possible.  Treating customers like family is both a guiding principle and a way of life! 

I am a Kansas native having been born and raised in the local area.  My husband, Fred is also a licensed agent.  We have two grown children and three grandchildren.  When not assisting clients, I enjoy spending time with family, reading, and traveling.

Edward Jones

My personal goal as an Edward Jones financial advisor is to help as many families as possible achieve their financial goals. I became a financial advisor with Edward Jones because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of others. What I enjoy most about the work I do is being able to meet with families and individuals one-on-one and listen to what is most important to them, while helping them to achieve their goals. 

Before becoming a financial advisor, I grew up on my family’s farm in Grantville, KS, called Gary’s Berries. I attended high school in Meriden, KS. Northeast Kansas is home – I enjoy living in the community where I work. 

Whether you are in between jobs or currently working and have questions about your ideal retirement, contact my office so we can set up a time to discuss your financial goals.
