About Us

As 23+ year-residents of the Cedar Creek Lake community, we have strong ties in East Texas.   Having grown up in DFW and with all our family still in the metroplex, we also have strong ties in the DFW area.  We joined the Ebby Halliday Realtors® family so that we can better assist buyer and seller needs in DFW as well as serving Cedar Creek Lake and all of East Texas.  Many times we have helped a client achieve the dream of owning property at a lake, in the country or in a residential neighborhood.  Then clients decide they want to sell their home in the DFW metroplex.
Debbie grew up in Irving and Bruce grew up in East Dallas. We met at Texas Instruments, married in 1980 and settled in East Dallas. In the early 1990’s, we moved to Cedar Creek Lake and raised three sons at the lake where we still reside full time.  Our sons include an Arlington fireman, Fort Worth paramedic, and children’s youth minister and each has married fantastic wives. They have gifted us with 5 grandsons and 1 granddaughter and girl #2 is on the way this winter.
Debbie Schwanbeck:
I have a versatile background in customer service, marketing and advertising, retail ownership, computer software and tourism of the surrounding Cedar Creek Lake area. When the boys left for college, I also completed my AAS in Business Management and a got my license in real estate in the same year. Having spent over two decades at Cedar Creek Lake, we are experts in resort, second home properties and I am a certified Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist (RSPS).  I am also an Aggie Mom and past president and treasurer of our local A&M Mothers club.
Bruce Schwanbeck:
After 35 years management experience in the lumber/building material industry, moving into real estate sales was an easy transition.  My career took us to Texas, Washington, Utah and Idaho.  My management skills and attention to detail in reading a blueprint to negotiating a contract is at your disposal.  I have spent my life in customer service, sales and management.  In my spare time, I have served in Faith in Action Outreach, member of Cedar Creek Lake Rotary Club, past vice president of the Greater Cedar Creek Lake Chamber of Commerce, Mabank Chamber of Commerce board of directors, and president of a sports association.
Our business focuses on servicing client wants, needs and desires.  We live our lives by following these core principles – Responsibility, Caring, Trustworthiness, Citizenship, Respect and Fairness. 
The Schwanbecks Will Exceed Your Expectations!
