I attribute my wealth of knowledge in this market to having lived in several cities in the DFW and surrounding areas. I have lived as far north and east as Coppell, and as far south and west as Keller and Ft. Worth, and several cities in between. Not only was I a home buyer and seller in each of these markets, I was extremely plugged in to each community. I maintain networks in those communities to this day, which keeps me up-to-date with the latest happenings around town and in the real estate market.
I graduated from Texas Wesleyan University with a business degree. I worked for various Fortune 500 companies which provided me excellent professional and negotiation skills needed in today’s hot real estate market.
Prior to coming into the real estate industry, I owned my own advertising and marketing business. Owning a business taught me valuable insight about client relationships – they aren’t just the length of the project, they’re for a lifetime. I learned self-motivation, determination and tenacity; all of which are characteristics of a great real estate agent. With proven results and experience, my returning clients know I’m a strong negotiator and not afraid of a tough deal. I bring those skills to every client and every contract.
I’m passionate about helping people find their new forever home. I appreciate the journey of buying a home and I love being “their person” every step of the way. I’m committed to helping clients find the home that is perfect for them in every way. I’m not just helping clients buy a home, I’m helping them put down roots and build dreams that may forever frame their lives. Clients with children choose their cities and neighborhoods carefully, because that one decision will shape their children’s lives for decades to come. A home purchase is one of the most important, and biggest investments a person will ever make. I am determined and driven to ensure it’s the right home for every client.
What Sets Me Apart
Working in the bridal industry taught me many skills that are transportable to real estate. I have an unmatched skillset for attention-to-detail. These skills are invaluable when advising a selling client on home staging. It also serves me well when searching for a buying client’s must-haves. I have other skills and characteristics that cannot be taught. I grew up in South America and moved to the U.S. when I was 15 years old. It wasn’t easy to move and begin high school in a foreign country at such a young and impressionable age. It taught me many things, but mostly it taught me to have courage and perseverance. It also taught me to get involved and network. Those skills serve me very well in real estate. I like to help people new to an area and get them started with connecting and networking, whether it’s for business, personal or volunteer opportunities. Among many things, what really sets me apart is that I’m accessible to my clients anytime, anywhere, no matter what time or day it is. DFW is a hot real estate market and timely communication is crucial.
My goal is to help you recognize the true value and potential of your home, whether buying or selling. The DFW area is a wonderful place to live and I love helping people find the perfect home. I represent you every step of the way. I pride myself on being a well-trained agent who is resourceful, knowledgeable in many communities, dependable and always accessible. Every family has a story and I hope you’ll allow me to help write yours.
