Married for 26 years to Andy Lee, in business development at Premier Bank. Sons Benjamin (21) , Cooper (17) and Brownie the amazing wonder dog (13).
Origionally from San Antonio, Texas, graduated from Baylor University. Worked in Advertising, Television, Radio and Marketing to large corporations before real estate. Our family relocated 8 times (5 different states) with my husbands job so I really know how it feels to pull up roots and try to put them down again..
When I'm not working in the real estate arena or volunteering, I love to read, especially biographies, swim, play golf and spend time with my family who are really a lot of fun even though I'm related to them.
The Golden Rule, "Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You" and the book "Everything I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten" basically sum up my view of business and life. If you do yoiur best and do the right thing even when no one is watching, people will know and tell others.
On TOP of that - I also believe you HAVE to know what you're doing. Knowledge and Education are KEY to being able to serve your clients with integrity. Just as you want a board certified brain surgeon with lots of experience in a medical life situation.....you need a full time, knowledgeable and dedicated REALTOR working in your financial life.
I want to be your real estate brain surgeon.
