I am so excited to share that I am a part of the RE/MAX American Dream Family. They have welcomed me with open arms, love and support and I am absolutely blessed to be a part of their team.

For the last several years it has been a dream of mine to pursue a career in Real Estate. However; due to Hurricane Harvey slamming into the Gulf Coast I had to put my dream on hold. When I was able to return to school in February 2020, I obtained my Real Estate License realizing the importance of putting the client’s interest first and foremost.

So here's a little back story as to why I decided to pursue my dream...

We were first time homebuyers (we closed 4 months before Harvey hit) and it was a very tough losing our first home.  From the start our journey was unpleasant. We had gone through several agents trying to find the "right one", we lost several contracts on different homes; from the approval process to the appraisals we were feeling a bit discouraged.  In Real Estate, time is of the essence and proper timelines must be met and because of those circumstances this cost us to lose the contract and our earnest money.  Upon the inspections we were "encouraged" to use the preferred inspector rather than our own.  The appraisal was also an issue when it came back under asking price; it was not in our favor due to the client/agent relationship.  I came to realize that there are agents for buyers and also for sellers; you should ensure that your best interest is in the hands of the agent you are working with. This is also known as a “Fiduciary Duty” of an agent to their client.

After Harvey hit (we call this our blessing in disguise) we were in the rebuilding phase and learned a lot about our property that was not disclosed to us in the sellers’ disclosure notice.  Upon rebuilding we hired our own inspector to come out and give us his feedback about several issues we had found.  He shared that most of the issues should have been disclosed from the beginning that Harvey was not the cause of these issues.

It was at that moment I had enough and could not allow others to endure the same headache and heartache that I went through.  In my experiences I learned what it takes to be an agent that I need to put my clients’ interest first.

I have been an active member of my community for 12 years, and I'm so excited to be turning that community focus toward real estate.

With a passion for service in the Galveston County area, RE/MAX American Dream is ready to help with your home buying and selling needs. As a proud member of the RE/MAX family, I will continue to carry the values of hard work, integrity, and outstanding client service into everything I do.
