Having grown up in a rural and land locked part of Maryland, Deanna developed her love of the water later in life. After searching for a way to find a good work/life balance, her husband suggested they buy a small center console and try boating. She was admittedly reluctant at first, but she loved it! They enjoyed their time on the water so much, they decided to buy a catamaran and made leap to full-time liveaboard life. She eventually left her corporate career to pursue their dream of cruising, taking a sabbatical and sailing the East Coast to the Keys and onto the Bahamas.
Deanna uses her own personal experience of living aboard and cruising to help buyers find the right boat to fit their lifestyle. Her ability to create lasting relationships with her clients make her a top choice for buyers and sellers looking for the right broker.
Deanna is an active member of the Eastport Yacht Club and volunteers with the Eastport Yacht Club Foundation, the charitable arm of the club which promotes education and career opportunities within the marine and maritime industries.
Deanna lives in Severna Park with her husband, Matt, and their two kids, an Irishdoodle named Bimini and a Labradoodle named Dodger. They are back on a small center console and love exploring the waters of the Severn River and Annapolis.

“You were there for us the whole way, and gave the process some well needed levity. Grateful for your service and professionalism.”
“The value of integrity shouldn’t be overlooked when you’re shopping for a yacht broker. And it’s not a given that you’ll find it on the first try. I’ve worked with several brokers in the past. None of them has the integrity and professional attitude that Deanna Sansbury does. Deanna knows her stuff, she’ll go to bat on your behalf, and she’s easy to reach when you need her. I’ll use her services again and again.”
