Southeast Texas Realtor
Born a Florida native, but I've been a SE Texan since 2007. I've been helping people buy and sell real estate for as I can remember- at least the past ten years.
Interests: When I'm not showing homes or helping sellers list their property, you'll find me in the great outdoors with my family, husband Sean, son Owen, our 6 horses, and 5 dogs. I'm an avid equestrian. I served on the Board of Directors for the Humane Society of Southeast Texas. You could say, finding homes for people and animals is my passion. We relocated to SETX from Florida several years ago. I can tell you the good, the bad, and everything in between about Southeast Texas. If you are moving here, or planing to buy or sell a home give me the opportunity to show you what a professional REALTOR can do for you.
