The market is fast moving in Houston these days and you have to be creative to find a house for your buyers. I have sold homes that were not even on the market. I network with other Realtors and stay aware of what is headed to the market. I watch the new property listings closely and will let you know if the dream house you are searching for just listed. I earned my Broker’s license in 2011 and try to be always learning something new. Beyond just selling homes, I put people together: the right lender with the difficult loan situation; the contractor that can take the ugly duckling house and make it fabulous; or the inspector that will give my client peace of mind with the purchase. I believe that having a team of experts to call on is a big part of my job. I consider myself tenacious and detail oriented. Buying or selling a house is a very stressful event and it’s my job to make it as smooth as possible. A Houston resident since 1979, I know my way around town even without the GPS. I have travelled internationally and enjoy the multi-cultural makeup of Houston and the Energy Corridor–my home for 20 years and where I have raised my two children. I have been a frequent visitor to the halls of the neighborhood schools as a volunteer for 12 years. I have a degree in Fine Arts and worked as a Graphic Designer for over 25 years. I speak fluent Texan (I’m a native) and have a Sheltie.
