What was your first job in the realty industry? I worked as a weekend receptionist for a couple of years and then transitioned to the weekday receptionist. I worked in the industry as a receptionist for three years before pursuing my real estate license.
What do you do to relax when you’re stressed? I enjoy taking a walk or just sitting out in my patio and listening to nature. If I am seriously stressed, a scoop of ice cream from Baskin Robbins never hurts.
Where did you grow up? I grew up in Perris, Calif. A small country town in the center of Southern California. It was an hour drive from San Diego, Orange County, and the San Bernadino Mountains.
Growing up, what did you want to be? As a kid, I always thought I would be a pediatrician. In high school is when I reconsidered my idea and never gave it a second thought.
If you could have lunch with a well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why? I would sit down with God and just listen to his words. I choose God because he is the one person that I speak to daily for his blessings and grace.
Where is your favorite place to hang out? If I were back in California, my favorite place that I recommend to every one is up in the mountains of Idylwild. I love it there because when the wind blows the pine needles make the most amazing soothing sound that I have ever heard. The ripples in the lake from the breeze I can sit and stare at all day. Fishing there is not so bad either.
What do you love most about the industry? I like sharing my passion for helping others find that place that they can call home. I enjoy the friendships that I get to establish by getting to know their needs and wants on a personal level. It’s a new adventure every time and that journey is like opening a gift. Full of surprises!
How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents? Well, being Beoulah Dozier says it for itself. There is not another one by that name who resides in Houston! I am also bilingual and can reach out to another sphere of clients who need an agent who can communicate with them in their primary language. Having been a relocated family myself from California to Houston, I can relate to others who are relocating and am able to fill them in on what they need to know and how to get around the area. I understand their feelings of leaving a home they know so well to one that may be scary and new.
What is the most difficult aspect of your job? Taking a vacation is a gamble.
Where do you go to network and meet new clients? I like hosting open houses to meet new clients, as well as attend as many social events such as grand openings for new subdivisions or my children’s school.
What has been your greatest accomplishment? Giving birth to the three most amazing kids that make me work harder than I could’ve ever imagined possible.
What was the last good movie you saw or book you read? 12 Years a Slave was a memorable movie that comes to mind. I also enjoyed reading “The Giver.”
What is your favorite restaurant? Lupe Tortilla is one of my faves. You may find me there sipping on a margarita and snacking on their beef fajita poblano nachos.
Architecturally speaking, what is your favorite building in Houston? Niels Esperson Building located at 808 Travis.
What kind of car do you drive? Buick Enclave.
Smartphone or paper? Paper.
What is your favorite city after Houston? San Diego.
What is your advice for someone new to the industry? Don’t get discouraged and write down all your ideas, because they are all doable. They sometimes get dismissed with so much going on, but always go back to your list and follow through. Don’t be afraid to ask another agent for advice or help.
What’s your favorite real estate iPhone/Android app? I currently can’t do without RPR. It gives great information and it works very well on the go.
Who are your favorite people to follow on Twitter? @ToniCNelson and @fredrikEklundNY.
