I grew up in Rockwall, Texas, near Dallas and moved to Austin in 1981 to attend the University of Texas. I graduated in 1985 with a BA degree, and in 1994, I earned a Master’s Degree in Public School Administration. I worked as a teacher for 8 years and an assistant principal for 2 years primarily in the Round Rock School District. I changed careers in 1999 and became an Austin Realtor because I’ve always wanted to run my own business. Like teaching, I still get to help people and solve problems, but I’m also free to use my creativity to get the job done right. I really enjoy what I do because it suits my personality and interests.
I’ve been an Austin Realtor for over 15 years now and have helped hundreds of buyers and sellers in the Austin/Central Texas area. My background as a teacher helps me to educate both buyers and sellers so that they can make the best choices during the home selling and purchasing process. My love of learning has helped me absorb a tremendous amount of knowledge about the local market, the sales process and the housing inventory. I sometimes joke that I’ve seen every floor plan in Austin. As far as professional credentials, the one I’m most proud of is the Certified Negotiation Expert designation. Negotiation is so important whether a Realtor is representing the buyer or the seller. I also feel that my broker designation and experience as the owner of a small real estate office for several years really helped me grow as a person. I’m excited to now be associated with Keller Williams Realty as one of their “mega agent” Austin realtors. Keller Williams has determined what type of person makes the most successful Austin Realtor, and they really support those of us who want to focus on helping buyers and sellers full time.
I’ve lived in the Lake Travis area since 1985. I grew up sailing on Texas lakes, and it was through sailing that I met and married Matt, a long-time Lake Travis resident. We’ve always lived in Hudson Bend, although we are now residing in our third home there. For the last 15 years, we’ve lived in two different waterfront homes and have also owned several investment properties in the area. Even though I continue to help buyers and sellers in the entire Austin area, I probably know the lake area better than any other part of town. My son graduated from Lake Travis High School, and we’ve watched the entire area grow tremendously over the last several years.
