  • What is your "why"? Why do you do what you do?
    I enjoy serving as a real estate ambassador and broker for my home state of Texas as we grow and welcome new residents every day. I grew up in a family-owned business and learned first-hand the value of serving people. My grandfather, a World War II hero, had a motto for his business, “Back to Basics.” Those simple words resonate with me as I consider it a privilege to partner with my clients, many of whom are relocating to Texas.

    We know people have always come to Texas for a better life, and it’s those past generations of people who have made our state a wonderful place to live, work and play. My brokerage, Gone to Texas Real Estate, honors the people from days gone by who wrote “GTT” on their doors to let their neighbors know they had “Gone to Texas.” Those early Texans were risk-takers and adventurers who contributed to the strong enterprising spirit of Texas today.

    Texas still attracts people seeking a new place for a better life, As a native Texan, I specialize in helping them find their way home, and I want their first experiences here to be positive. My background in the news media and working with Chambers of Commerce throughout Central Texas, I recognize our changing economic and employment setting lays the foundation for a strong future for our community.

    Working with first-time home-buyers, empty-nesters and seasoned investors, I work hard to locate properties and negotiate the terms to win the offer and close the deal. In our challenging market where a shortage of inventory and a surplus of buyers regularly create multiple offer scenarios, I wear the boots on the ground to help my clients land their ideal home and their own piece of Texas.

    My grandfather gave me my first job in real estate at the age of 16 and taught me by example the value of owning real estate and the rewards of helping others discover home and land ownership.

    I am a Military Relocation Professional designated through the National Association of REALTORS® to help veterans own their home. I earned the Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) designation to better serve my clients, and I am a designated Real Estate Negotiation Expert, a Seller Representative Specialist® and Accredited Buyer Representative®.
