An often overlooked skill of an agent is the ability to help two strangers come together in a mutually-beneficial agreement. With over a decade of professional recruiting experience in two major industries (medical and IT) as a foundation, my ability to connect potential applicants to the right company, position and culture translates into a similar yet unique perspective to also help a buyer find the perfect fit in their search for a home. I graduated from Bellaire High School and got my degree in Communications from the University of Houston. As a proud native Houstonian active in the social and volunteer scene, it has been said that I have never met a stranger. I believe in not simply selling/buying a house, but rather I focus on selling/buying the Houston lifestyle. I would love to put my passion and energy to work for you!
