Working tirelessly to meet her clients’ individual needs, Dena Hobbs-Lix delivers on every promise she makes. “I strive to develop lasting relationships that extend beyond a single transaction,” says Hobbs-Lix, a Realtor at JLA Realty and founder of the HL Group. “I make myself available around their schedules, and I am proactive in educating them on the homebuying and selling process.”
Specializing in luxury and residential buying and selling, as well as leasing and land, Hobbs-Lix, along with a well-curated team of agents at The HL Group, serves clients throughout Houston’s major markets. “As a JLA agent, I have access to its 27 offices and managers, and their detailed knowledge has given me more insight and knowledge of the entire Houston area,” she explains, noting that she is a Houston native herself.
A former sales and marketing executive in corporate America and the co-founder of an offshore construction and consultant company, Hobbs-Lix transitioned to a career in real estate nearly six years ago, earning the title of rookie of the year out of 1200 agents. She has been named a Five Star Professional every year since 2020, and in 2021 and 2022 ranked No.1 in her office for residential sales by volume. The HL Group is ranked No. 1 in its office, too.
Hobbs-Lix also trains real estate agents, acting as the training coordinator in her office. She served on the Lake Houston Women’s Council of Realtors. She’s the current associate director of the Miss Southeast Texas Scholarship Organization, her High School Alumni Scholarship Committee, and, previously, the American Cancer Society’s Oscar night gala. She’s now part of the 2023 HAR Engage Advisory Group and 2023 HAR Lake Houston Area Networking group and has been Women’s Council of Realtors retention chair in 2023, marketing chair in 2020 and membership chair in 2021.
