Real Estate Agent

Born and raised in Texas! I was born in Arlington and soon moved to Grapevine when I was younger, I have called it home now for the last 15 years. I have always worked in retail and love all things fashion. Growing up, I’ve seen what a power house my mom has become through real estate and all the opportunities it offered her and our family. Working in real estate has caught my attention and interest; I cannot be more excited to start my journey. I think helping people find their dream home, investment home, starter home, or even temporary home is such a wonderful thing. It really is an amazing experience to be a part of and I’m looking forward to soon being able to be that person who gets to help!
