After living, working in real estate and raising a family in Highland Park a well-known area in central Dallas, my husband, Mel and I started looking for a less rushed way of life. Unfortunately for business reasons it was necessary for us to move back to Houston for a few years. During this time my daughters both moved to Austin, and in visiting them, both my husband and I fell in love with the city.
My son-in-law was starting a high tech company in Austin and he ask me if I would come to Austin and help him relocate and find homes for employees he was bringing to the city. Real Estate was at a premium and good homes were hard to find. The high tech bubble initially did burst, but with the help of the high tech industry Austin went on to explode.
My husband and I did move to Austin and have had the opportunity of seeing our family grow and the reward of watching our four grandsons grow into wonderful young men.
In addition to real estate, I have spent years in community service and working with the art groups in both Dallas and Austin. I worked with the Dallas Museum of Art, the Dallas Symphony League, Women’s Symphony League of Austin, the Rotary Club, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, on the board of the Freddy Powers Parkinson Foundation and a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
I have been an art and antique collector and my interest ranges from colonial to Asian antiquities and Southwestern Art.
When it comes to buying and selling a home, everyone has his or her own priorities. As a real estate professional serving the communities of Austin, I make it a priority to find the right plan to help my clients realize their goals. Professionally my view of residential real estate is that it is about people, their dreams and aspirations. It is about people and families buying a place that will become a home. When it comes time to sell the home that has meant so much to them in the past, now it means even more to their future, and it is critical that they are able to maximize their investment. Knowing what is important to my client’s life makes me take my job very seriously in putting a priority on finding “The Perfect Fit” for them.
