My passion is helping you navigate the unpredictable real estate world to find your ideal home, while avoiding costly and stressful mistakes. This drive comes from my personal story — 17 years ago, I purchased my first home in my hometown of New Orleans. Just a few days later, Hurricane Katrina arrived. Talk about things not going as planned!
My post-Katrina experience informed my next moves — relocating to Austin, buying land, and building infill properties / tiny homes in Brentwood (north central) and the Holly and Rosewood neighborhoods (east of downtown). My experiences with unusual investments required working with multiple contractors, obtaining permits, securing variants and obtaining neighborhood buy-in and have proven invaluable in my real estate practice.
Patience, persistence, and relationship-building are hallmarks of my approach. I listen intently, act in integrity, and communicate clearly. I am also a skilled researcher and fierce advocate for my clients’ wants and needs — whether you’re buying, selling or renting.
My background encompasses technology sales and marketing (Dell), higher education (University of Texas at Austin), and the housing nonprofit space (Foundation Communities). I am a past board member of the National Association of Professional Organizers in Austin and Women and Their Work art gallery, as well as a graduate of the 2007 Leadership Austin Emerge program and Leadership Texas Class of 2009.
Bringing peace to others through service is at the heart of everything I do. Before the pandemic, I volunteered as a NICU Rocker at St. David’s Medical Center, and I miss it dearly. When I’m not working, you may find me walking the trail at Town Lake / Lady Bird Lake, exploring restaurants that joyfully support my gluten- and dairy-free diet, traveling to serene locales with great people and music, or simply spending time with friends and family.
