Our Team

Debra Taylor

Founder and President

Deb Blair founded LINK in 1987. LINK delivers essential real estate data in a user-friendly format, allowing agents to focus on relationship procurement rather than assimilating data in a time-consuming manner. In addition, she helped launched Boston Homes, a consumer facing Real Estate publication and the Vineyard, Gazette Yearbook, an annual real estate publication on Martha’s Vineyard.

She has led her firm through numerous iterations of best in class data management and software solutions to meet the exacting needs of real estate professionals in both urban and secondary home markets, including Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.

In addition to her real estate technology platform, her firm delivers comprehensive market reports, media partnerships, and a robust speaker series.

Debra has a BS in Economics from Northeastern University and is a graduate of the Harvard Business School Owner President Management (OPM) program.

She has volunteered and served on numerous non-profit boards in Boston including The Gibson House Museum, The Algonquin Club, The Women’s Lunch Place, and the YMCA Huntington Avenue Board of Advisors.

Debra resides in Boston and Martha’s Vineyard with her husband and two boys, age 17 and 19.
