I was born and raised in Central Texas and from early on I developed an interest and a hands on education in real estate.  As a child growing up I watched my parents buy and sell property and still today they manage investment property as well as enjoy operating both recreational and production land.  After both graduating from Tarleton State University, my wife Dina and I moved to San Marcos in 1999 and have since decided to make this beautiful place our home for good. We are raising two daughters and Dina is a public school teacher.  We are active members of First United Methodist Church-San Marcos, Tx.

I live in the heart of the San Marcos Historic District.  I have a love for preservation and restoration and I am a true expert in this area with a distinct focus on these beautiful older homes and on investment property.  Over the last 17 years I have developed a sincere passion for real estate and have worked endlessly researching a wide range of real estate transactions. As a result of that research, I have developed a keen understanding of how to evaluate real estate and ultimately how to negotiate in order to get the deal done. This includes everything from researching values to improving property, to marketing, analyzing rate of return, CAP Rate, cash flow and all things in between. I actively work on commercial, mixed use, residential, multi-family, land and investment real estate transactions. Those that know me, will know that I am always asking questions and furthering my education.  When it comes to real estate, I want to know everything and I am actively sharing and helping educate my clients with this valuable information.  So when it comes to buying or selling,  I hope you will consider me your trusted partner in the real estate business.

I have lived in San Marcos for over 30 years and have served on the staff of Texas State University for over 25 years. My husband, Drew and I both attended Texas State (formerly SWT) and have raised our 3 children in this community. We are active members of First Methodist Church-San Marcos and the Hays Praise Emmaus Community. We have owned 4 homes in this gorgeous city, including our current home which we built in the master-planned community of Blanco Vista.

In over 3 decades I have witnessed the amazing growth of this city and the surrounding area along the IH-35 corridor. I am extremely happy to be part of this community of realtors and am very excited about assisting you in fulfilling your real estate needs.
