With over 30 years of personal real estate experience buying and selling numerous properties (homes, condos, farm and ranch) in both Houston and Austin, once I got my license, I went to work cutting my teeth in the highly competitive Houston market and earning a considerable number of professional designations including: GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute), ABR (Accredited Buyer's Representative) Certified Home Marketing Specialist (CHMS), Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), Master Certified Negotiation Expert (MCNE), Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS), and Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) - tools that allow me to provide excellent service to my clients.
I represent all ranges of buyer and sellers in both Travis, Harris and Fayette Counties, from first timers to experienced veterans, guiding my clients step-by-step through the intricacies of the purchase process. My advanced real estate education and skill-set allow me to make the home buying experience as seamless as possible. From the very beginning of the process of choosing a lender for a pre-approval, to selecting and screening homes, to negotiating the murky waters of the sales contract, to ensuring all deadlines are met, to making sure all t's are crossed and all i's are dotted, I oversee the entire transaction with my full and undivided attention to every detail.
As one who loves to be creative and “think out of the box,” I view situations from a fresh perspective and don’t get bogged down with how things have always been done. I also have a wicked sense of humor, and love people and animals. My mother once told me that people are not loved for their strength of character, but rather for their amiable weaknesses. I must confess that my amiable weakness (according to my husband and daughter) lies in my innate inability to cook. So I draw upon the kindness and generosity of my clients and friends to provide me with foolproof recipes that I can share.
As a graduate of St. John's School in Houston and The University of Texas, my Texas ties are equally strong in Houston and Austin. I serve on the board of directors of several organizations/companies: Austin Lawyers' Auxiliary, Texas Lawyers Auxiliary, American Lawyers Alliance, and Explore.Us. During my spare time, you can find me relaxing at our farm in Round Top, volunteering with Austin Lawyers' Alliance or Austin Pets Alive, cheering on the Texas Longhorns, on the beach in Port Aransas delving into a good murder/mystery, developing another fool-proof recipe, or visiting my daughter up at NYC.
