10 Things you might not know about CEO, Debbie Harms

How much do you know about NAI Maestas & Ward CEO, Debbie Harms? Most people know her as one of the top leaders in the New Mexico Commercial Real Estate and Property Management industries.  However, in celebration of National Bosses Day, we sat down with one of the best bosses (we may be biased) to learn a few interesting and funny details of Debbie outside the CRE boardroom.

Here are 10 you might not know about Debbie Harms:

1. Goat Cheese is abhorrent to me.  Tastes like vomit and makes me gag.

2.  The only “C” grades I received in school were in handwriting in third grade and Accounting 101 in college. If you look closely, you can tell that I still print all of my letters, I just run them together so they look like cursive writing.  I finally got the accounting thing......

3.  I made my own wedding dress.

4.  I secretly count everything; steps on the treadmill, stairs, seconds on the microwave, people in a room, etc.

5.  I don’t eat cake with blue icing. On my 21st birthday my friends and I celebrated with shots of liquor and a cake with blue didn’t end well for me.  I don’t do blue icing. 

6.  As a kid, I didn’t like the taste of meat, so I would sell my portion of meat to one of my brothers.

7.  I don’t like chocolate. I wouldn’t spit it out (I will spit out goat cheese), but I would never choose to eat chocolate and will usually just pass it by. 

8.  I think life is too short. We should get to live a couple hundred years so we have time to get really good at a profession and then change to another and another. 

9.  I was the first single female hot air balloon owner.

10.  I am a morning person. I have much more energy and ability in the morning than I have in the afternoon.  If I am working on a big project, you can bet it will be morning.
