October Agent Spotlight: Debi Benoit

Debi Benoit


Debi Benoit is an icon of the Wellesley real estate market. Read on to discover how she got her start in the industry, and what she loves most about the MetroWest community. 


What did you do before real estate and how did you get started in the business?

I was in the interior design field when I moved to Wellesley, 34 years ago. After a very negative experience with an agent who did not do their job well, I knew I could do so much better – so I did! The other draw about being in real estate was that I could make my own schedule. I was able to attend all my daughters' games and be there for her at all her sporting events. I am so happy I had the confidence and courage to change my career.


What is something your clients find comfort in that makes them turn to you for their real estate needs?

Confidentiality. Not everyone sells their house for happy reasons. I always act with discretion,  keeping my clients' decisions and personal details confidential. Protecting my clients is my top priority and they know that.


What are some of your favorite local hobbies, activities or organizations that you participate in?

Real estate, that's what I do! 


What do you love most about where you live and work?

Wellesley is a uniquely exceptional and welcoming community. I feel so fortunate to have lived here for 34 years. In fact, many children who  grow up here return to raise their own families here as adults. I work with many families of this generation and the top rated school system is one of the biggest draws for them to come back and call Wellesley their home. It’s so rewarding to help multiple generations celebrate the joys of Wellesley. 


Favorite spots in Wellesley/MetroWest?

I love the multitude of restaurants available in the area, as well as the town parks & trails that so many people enjoy on a daily basis. The amenities of MetroWest are unmatched. 


What are three sources of joy in your week?

Connecting with my clients, and enjoying the top tier support of Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty’s Wellesley office and management. No one is better at taking care of their agents. My favorite joy is sharing Sunday night Facetime calls with my grandchildren!
