What was your first job in the realty industry? My first realty job was in the office of an apartment complex.

What do you do to relax when you’re stressed? Stressed or not, I love to get outside and walk the seawall and beach.

Where did you grow up? I grew up in Fort Worth.

Growing up, what did you want to be? No real plans while growing up. Just liked to take on each opportunity that was put before me.

If you could have lunch with a well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why? Carol Burnett – A woman that can make everyone laugh and still be such a good business woman. She would have some great secrets and stories to tell. This would need to be a very long lunch.
