About Us

As a 25+ year-resident 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 Dallas-Fort Worth.  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’s family roots started in Fort Worth and they settled in Irving.   Bruce grew up in East Dallas. The two met while working at Texas Instruments.  Bruce and Debbie married in 1980 and settled in East Dallas. In the early 1990’s The Schwanbecks moved to Cedar Creek Lake where they raised three sons at the lake and still reside there full time.  The Schwanbecks have 3 sons an Arlington fireman, Fort Worth paramedic, and furniture restorer/entrepreneur.  All three have amazing wives that have gifted  Debbie and Bruce with 5 grandsons and 2 granddaughters.

Debbie – I have a versatile background in customer service, marketing & advertising, retail ownership, computer software and tourism director of Henderson & Kaufman county area.  I worked hard for an AAS in Business Management and Texas Real Estate license. Having spent over two decades at Cedar Creek Lake, Debbie and Bruce are experts in resort second home properties.  Debbie is a certified Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist (RSPS), an Aggie Mom and past president and treasurer of the local A&M Mothers club.
Bruce - After 35 years management experience in the lumber/building material industry, moving into real estate sales was an easy transition.  Bruce’s career took the family to Texas, Washington, Utah and Idaho.  His management skills and attention to detail in reading a blue print to negotiating a contract, is at your disposal.  Bruce has spent his life in customer service, sales and management.  In his spare time he has served in Faith in Action Outreach, member of Cedar Creek Lake Rotary Club, past vice president and current board member of the Greater Cedar Creek Lake Chamber of Commerce, Mabank Chamber of Commerce board of directors, and president of a sports association.

Together our virtues are Faith, Integrity, Thankful and Conscientious, Diligent and Loyal.  These are our family virtues and core principles that we live by.
