Bio

You have someone in your corner!!

Being a FULL-TIME agent, I bring over 20 years of diverse experience to help both my team and my clients reach their goals in Real Estate. I began my career in 1997 in sales and marketing. My network of traditional buyers and sellers includes everyone from the new graduate buying a condo to the executive completing an international relocation. I have directly help with the disposition of 900+ homes in my career thus far. My knowledge has also proven to be valuable in assisting investor clients with profit analysis and exit strategies.

As a native Central Texan who”s an expert in the Corridor area (San Antonio to Austin), I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It’s not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information.

I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Sell a Home/Property
Regardless of whether it’s your residence or an investment property, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Finding Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter – not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don”t visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience – which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that”s sold fast.

Whether its New Home Construction, Manufactured, Acreage, Probate, Previously Owned, it DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE who you choose.

With over 20 years of experience I can help and will enhance your experience, I GUARANTEE IT.

 


CPRESCertified Probate Real Estate Specialists have been specially trained by US Probates Services on the process of selling real estate through the probate process. Probate is a court-regulated and often complicated series of steps that must be carefully monitored and managed. Legal deadlines are unforgiving, the documentation is very unique and the courts oversight must be adhered to throughout the marketing, negotiation and escrow periods. This is why a REALTOR® with the prestigious CPRES designation is in such high demand. A CPRES REALTOR® understands the unique complications, the time-sensitive process, and adheres to the the best practices necessary to navigate the potentially treacherous transaction to completion and help the estate realize a win-win-win transaction.

Almost an acre with a 1/1 home, septic and water already in place. Ready for you to bring your clothes and start fishing! The home has been raised twice to reduce the risk of flooding. During and after Hurricane Harvey the water did not get into the home! New roof, electric and water well pump and tank. Call today to take a look at this place, one of a kind, very rare! Most furnishings will convey.
