What do you do to relax when you’re stressed? I make and eat chocolate chip cookies…some days call for a skillet-sized one!

Growing up, what did you want to be? Trapper John, MD. I wanted to be a trauma surgeon.
If you could have lunch with a well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why? Eve. If you knew then what you know now…
Where is your favorite place to hang out? My recliner.
What do you love most about the industry? Being able to see all the variances in styles and locations, and seeing the difference in buyers in regards to who chooses what. I see personality types play out so much in this industry.
How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents? I am a Certified Residential Specialist, and I really do listen to what my clients want – things both spoken and unspoken. So many times I have taken buyers into a home that I picked out for them only to have them say “How did you know? This is the one. You didn’t know this, but we always wanted…” I also work for their kids. You make children fall in love with a house and it makes the move easier on them.
What is the most difficult aspect of your job? Dealing with the fact that sometimes people can’t get what they want.
Where do you go to network and meet new clients? Anywhere. I’m not a “networker,” so I tend to just talk with whomever I happen to be around.
What has been you greatest accomplishment? Raising 3 beautiful, well-adjusted daughters.
What is your favorite restaurant? Carrabba’s on Kirby – no question.
