Which realtor group are you with? I am with Realty Austin on the Smith Team

Tell us about your background. I was born and raised in Waco Texas, and went to Baylor University. I come from a family with 7 realtors, so I’ve known the business for a long time and worked as an assistant to my realtor husband for a while before I became licensed myself 3 years ago.

How many clients have you helped over your career? I don’t even know how many clients I’ve helped! My husband and I work as a team and together we sold about 75 homes last year. According to the National Association of Realtors, the average residential realtor sells about 12 homes/year…so we are on the go and meeting a lot of people.

What do you provide to your clients that really makes your service special? My 4-year degree at Baylor was Interior Design. That included space planning, lighting, and materials & finishes selections. I really enjoy helping buyers and sellers see what they can do to make their home more livable or sell-able.

What areas in Austin do you work in? I live in the Arboretum area of Austin so I know a lot of about that area, but I’ve sold homes as far north as Lampasas and down to south Austin, so I am all over the place.

What is the last book you read? The last book I read was The Road Back to You

Folks would be surprised to know that…I went to high school with Joanna Gaines–she was a cheerleader and was Pocahontas in one of our pep rally skits.
