Business Partner & Sales Consultant

About me

Debi has been in the Real Estate industry for 25 years. Having started at age 19, she has a comprehensive across-the-board knowledge and experience, that enables her to be a valuable asset to her clients in their decisions about property. After 20 years selling and having ownership of a top franchise in Christchurch, she moved to Auckland and has both sold property and joined the ranks of high level management as the North Island Manager for NZ Sotheby’s International Realty.

Debi has now returned to her passion which is personally guiding her own clients through the selling process. She has also settled back in her home town of Christchurch which she and her daughter missed terribly. Debi took everything she learned from her corporate experiences and, after some thorough investigation,  decided to bring the Tall Poppy brand to Cantabrians and start saving them some serious money.

Her initial scepticism about being able to deliver a high level of service and charge such a significantly lower amount in fees to clients was quickly assuaged when she delved into the workings of the Tall Poppy model. In a nutshell, she sees the savings coming from a genuine lack of overheads predominantly in the form of flash offices and unnecessary management roles. These savings go directly to our vendors and Debi is delighted to be a part of this transformation in the industry.

“We are in a changing landscape in the Real Estate industry. Clients are educated and discerning. They want to see value for their fees but still demand great service. A great salesperson will always be needed in these complex transactions and being able to bring the fresh, innovative, honest, Kiwi approach that is Tall Poppy to Canterbury is extremely exciting”

You will love Debi’s sound and intelligent approach to property; combined with her happy, outgoing and fun personality, and you’ll love having a chat to her to see what Tall Poppy can offer you.

Debi's testimonials

Wendy McLaren

Debi is incredibly dedicated to her work as an agent for Tall Poppy, she has a wealth of experience in real estate, her knowledge of the current market and potential buyers is outstanding. With out her many contacts and assistance to get our house to market, we would still have our house on the market. On so many occasions she acted as if the house for sale was her own. She really worked very hard on our behalf.

Grant Bellaney

We recently sold two properties with Deb. From start to finish we were very impressed. We sought several market estimates and considered the various agents sales experience, personality, commission rates and sales strategy. Debi not only got us the price we were after and cost less commission but was reliable, a great communicator and a pleasure to deal with.

Justin Thornley-Aria

I recently sold a property with Debi, and was so impressed with her dedication, pragmatic approach, and honesty, that I subsequently had her sell some more. My experience in property over many years is that agents normally promise you the moon and deliver you a golf ball. The opposite is true in Debi’s case. She has been honest, upfront and realistic about expected sales price and value, and each time has delivered exactly what she has promised. Debi has integrity, credibility and a wealth of experience and knowledge of the industry, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

Grant Alvis

We had a very pleasant genuine warm experience dealing with both ladies. Both very helpful, and was wonderful to experience a no pressure style both ladies adopted. Dealing with my sense of humour may have been more challenging than selling the house to us. Marj and I both felt relaxed and at ease talking to both. Well done ladies, the house we love but you two made it happen, thank you.

Pam Thomas

Debi impressed me from the moment I met her when she was marketing another home and I attended the open home. She was warm and welcoming and as I began chatting to her I realised she was extremely motivated, knowledgeable and passionate about helping people navigate the stressful process of house selling with as little stress as possible. I was extremely anxious about selling (having had a previous bad experience) but she promised to take care of me and she absolutely did. She communicated regularly, openly and honestly and removed as much of the stress for me as she could. I appreciate very much all Debi did for my family and I would have no hesitation in recommending her.

Mark Wells

I can’t speak highly enough of Debi. We just wanted an agent who was up front and honest and we got that. Debi may not always have told us what we wanted to hear, but she did tell us the truth. Her market intelligence/knowledge was bang on and she worked hard to move our property and do the best she could for us. Our property is now sold and we would absolutely use her again.

Prow Tovaranonte

I sold my house in Christchurch through Debi Pratt from Tall Poppy. Debi came recommended from a friend and I was very glad to have met her. After having spoken to many other agents, I decided to list my house with Debi, as I knew I would get a personalised service at a reasonable price. Debi was very easy to deal with, friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Debi was a great communicator and kept me informed of progress throughout the whole sales process (this was especially important to me as I am based overseas) and just made everything simple. I was very happy with the sales result and I would highly recommend Debi and her team to anyone looking to sell their house.

Charlie and Matt Batchelor

During our dealings with Debi from Tall Poppy we always felt cared for and informed. The process of purchasing our property was speedy and definitely a lot less daunting than what I was expecting it to be. Debi even came to visit us once we had settled in to see how we were doing. Definitely added to the personal touch of the whole experience. I have since recommended Tall Poppy to everyone interested in selling or purchasing a property. I wish them only the very best.

Clarissa Cavanagh

Initially I listed my home with one of the larger Real Estate companies in Christchurch. After Three months and no offers I switched to Debi at Tall Poppy. Debi offered a positive perspective which brought about amazing results. She was able to present me with six offers from the first open home, one of which I was thrilled to accept. Debi’s friendly professionalism resulted in a great outcome for both parties.
