I have been living in Austin for over 45 years; most of my life. This is home. My story is that I was born in Jourdanton, Texas which is just up the road. My family moved to Austin when I was really young, and I have been here ever since, and I love the city I live in the place I call my hometown. Yes, a Texas girl an Austinite is how you would describe me. I am a wife, mother, grandmother my family means the world to me. I am also a Pastor and I absolutely love serving people. My favorite pass time is spending time with family and doing ministry. I have traveled to Africa for Missions a few times this experience changed my life. While I was there, I helped start an orphanage and a school as well as preached the gospel of hope. I have continued to do lots of outreach here and in surrounding cities and states.
I have been an entrepreneur and humanitarian for most of my adult life. I focus on businesses that can help and serve the people of the great city I live in and call home. My entrepreneur career started when I opened Solid Rock Learning Center a child development center in St. John an underprivileged community in Austin. My goal was to provide quality care and advanced learning at affordable rates to give the children of these families the head start they deserved but otherwise could not afford. I owned and operated Solid Rock for 10 years before selling to start a nonprofit organization for teen parents and underprivileged families in East Austin called H.O.P.E. of Austin. A few years later I also opened the Serenity House serving women overcoming drug addiction and imprisonment. These are just a few of the works that I have done, and I am still doing. Being a real estate agent affords me time and liberty to continue to be a great service to my city.
JBGoodwin Realtors, Inc has been in the Austin area since 1972, working as a team to provide quality service to the great people of Austin. I joined this team in October of 2015. I chose JBGoodwin as my brokerage because we have the same motto and that is helping other’s dreams come true. In fact, the JBGoodwin mission statement is simple "Help People". This is not only the mission of JBGoodwin but is my personal mission as well. As a licensed REALTOR I have continued to fulfill my purpose of helping and serving the people here in the city of Austin and surrounding areas by helping them buy or sell their home.
This great city Austin is constantly changing and growing to appease the diversity in culture, entertainment, and business housed in this beautiful city. Therefore, it doesn’t matter where you move to Austin from it is a city you can easily call home. If you already live here, then you know just what I mean.
