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 graduating from Tarleton State University and marrying my college sweetheart, I moved to San Marcos and decided to make this beautiful place our home for good. I've been married 20+ years, my wife is an educator and we are raising two beautiful and kind daughters. We are very active members of The First United Methodist Church-San Marcos, Texas.
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 20 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 value analysis and forecasting to improving property, to marketing, analyzing rate of return, CAP Rate, cash flow and all things in between. I actively work on residential, commercial, mixed use, multi-family, land and investment real estate.
As a real estate investor, I "Walk the Walk" with you and am 100% vested and dedicated to you and this beautiful area full of opportunity. Those that know me, will know that I am always asking questions and furthering my education, quite literally on a day to day basis. When it comes to real estate, I am at top of my game and want to continue to be highly educated 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.

I have lived in Kyle, Texas since 1997 with my husband, Jason Otto. In this community we have raised 3 beautiful daughters, Bailee, Emilee, & Malloree. The 5 of us have all taken up active roles in our community from participating in our neighborhood events and activities, to school events and organizations, to being a member of Chamber of Commerce Board.
I have always had an interest in real estate, and I am happy that now I get to fulfill my passion and make others dreams come true.
I realize that buying or selling a home is not something that you do regularly, however I hope you will consider me as your trusted partner in the real estate business as the need arises.
