Rental Team


Debbie Putz

Debbie Putz moved to the Pinehurst/Southern Pines/Aberdeen area from Connecticut in 1999 with her husband Dobee and 2 daughters and loves living in the Sandhills! Her experience in construction management has made her a perfect fit as Property Manager since 2005. The fast growth of the Property Management department can be attributed to her desire to make each rental of equal value to both owners and those leasing homes, townhomes and condos. Village of Pinehurst Rentals currently manages 185 properties and rental types and term lengths can vary based on client’s needs. Debbie is one of the very select few brokers who specialize only in rentals.

In Debbie’s free time she can be found with her husband, children, grandchildren, and her dogs. Grateful for the warm community she lives in, Debbie makes sure new customers and those leasing properties are welcomed in a way that makes each experience enjoyable.


Susan Windley

Susan Windley has spent all of her life in North Carolina and could best be described as a true “Carolina Girl”. Susan’s father was very successful in commercial real estate in Moore County and Susan has followed in his footsteps as Assistant Property Manager for Village Properties of Pinehurst. This “Carolina Girl” can tell you something about every part of our community and loves to direct customers and tenants to those services that best help them manage their property.

“Connie Harrison is the epitome of professionalism, honesty, and integrity. She sets the standard for the real estate industry in the Sandhills area. I have relied on her for successful sales and purchases with superb results. Absolutely the best realtor I have ever known.”


H. & K. Anderson


“We purchased a condominium a few years ago in Pinehurst and Debbie Putz and her staff have met and exceeded our expectations in every regard. We are from Illinois and fell in love with the village of Pinehurst around 10 years ago and decided we really wanted to own a condo here. We were always concerned about owning property so far away from home. Our concerns vanished when we meet Debbie. She has cared for our home away from home as if it was hers while providing us with consistent income to invest back into our property and pay expenses.”


S. Mills


“We have had a wonderful experience working with Debbie Putz at Village of Pinehurst Rentals and Golf over the course of the last 10 years. During that period there have been many changes to the rental market (and I am sure there will be more to come) and I have found Debbie and her team are quite adept at adapting to change -- very flexible and professional.”


J & L Barber


“Recently, my husband and I had the pleasure of choosing Village Properties of Pinehurst to list and subsequently sell our home in Whispering Pines. Rick Phillips and his son Patrick put forth great effort and time to details involved with the listing of our home. This included researching and showing us recent comparables on the market as well as ones that have sold over the past year. Patrick used his drone/aerial photography skills to highlight our location on the lake as well as suggesting ways to manicure the outside grounds and even brought in a professional to stage the inside of the house. We had the house previously listed with (3) other agents over a period of 18 months with no results. Shortly after we listed with Village Properties a few changes to the home were suggested and changed and the house sold.”

“Experience, creativity, and sound advice. Rick Phillips has all of these qualities and much more. They are qualities that on-line real estate sites can’t provide.”
