What was your first job in the realty industry? Before I was licensed, I was buying foreclosures with my then husband back in the 90's and selling or leasing them. Remodeling and renovations gave me the Real Estate bug.

Growing up, what did you want to be? All I did was work and go to school, so by the time I came to Houston, I was ready to work but didn't know exactly what I wanted to do. But it all evolved nicely.
What do you do to relax when you’re stressed? Work on my pool and yard and then lay out and enjoy it.
