477073The Short Version
I absolutely love being a Houston Realtor at Martha Turner, educating myself and helping my clients with buying and selling real estate in Houston and the surrounding areas. That’s why I have over 15 professional designations and continue to learn and teach my clients and other Houston Realtors to help raise the bar in our industry. I firmly believe that everyone is entitled to have professional help in buying or selling homes. No matter the price range, everyone is entitled to help and should be treated the same. I don’t work the long hours, time away from the family and the stress because of the money. If that was the case I would have found another profession years ago. I do it because I love the satisfaction of helping people, it’s just that simple. That’s why my most accurate measure of my sucess is my Client Experience Rating. I chose to be a Realtor with Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty
because it is the most professional, ethical and well run company I have ever seen, and Martha Turner herself is the most amazing and genuine person I have ever met.
