#1 Agent in South Texas

My goal as a real estate professional has always been to effectively work in my client's best interest by delivering above and beyond their expectations. After my husband and I purchased our fourth home, I knew I wanted a career in real estate. So, in 1987, I became a full time licensed Texas real estate professional. I have always lived in a military town since my first year in real estate. Since my husband Lowell was coroporate and my family was military, I have had the privilege of serving corporate and military families in purchasing and selling their homes. I understand the stress associated with a move for all members of corporate and military families. I am well aware of the different types of struggles family members go through when they are suddenly transferred after a 2 year time of calmness and comfort. Today, I specialize in representing military and corporate families selling their homes. My experience in working with primarily military and corporate clients over the last 27 years, along with my education and background, has made me extremely knowledgeable to effectively represent my clients with their real estate goals. I have been a CENTURY 21 CENTURION agent, selling in the top 1% Internationally for 18 years in a row. My 18 years of a consistent success pattern proves my stability, work ethic, energy and effectiveness as a real estate professional. As your trusted Realtor, I will work for you with honesty and integrity as your advocate. Delivering exceptional service as your real estate professional is my personal commitment every day. I am honored to serve you! Please call or text me at 361-815-2101. I answer my own phone and personally return all my calls in the same day and most within the hour!
