Welcome to Austin and it’s surrounding areas, the heart of Central Texas!


After being away for a few years, I’ve come back to the one place I call home, Austin!

Throughout the years, I’ve relocated to various cities in different states of our beautiful country. To name a few: Jersey City, New Jersey; Orlando, Florida; Ketchikan, Alaska; San Antonio, Dallas - Fort Worth, Georgetown, and Austin, Texas. 


My heart is here in central Texas. It’s where my children became adults, it’s where my seven grandsons now come to explore and where I’m rediscovering its beauty through them.


I know about moving forward in life… to new beginnings. I’m originally from the east coast, one of six siblings and a rich Puerto Rican culture. I enjoyed big city life but wanted to raise my family differently. So, I took a leap of faith. I packed up my five children and drove them across the country in search of a new place to call home, the journey brought us to Texas!

  

Helping people is my passion. When my kids were very young I worked in private schools as a Principal’s Assistant, After School Coordinator, and Daycare Director. When they were a little older I worked in the semiconductor industry as a manufacturing specialist and trainer here in Austin. I then earned my degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography and helped people as an Ultrasound Technologist before finding myself as an assistant to residential appraisers.

Now I’m moving forward to my next life adventure as a REALTOR®... Your REALTOR®.

Whether you're buying resale or new build, leasing, selling, or investing, I welcome the opportunity to assist you in this fascinating journey towards finding your place to call home.


Real Estate is my business, it's my only business; and as your REALTOR®, I will listen to what's important to you to achieve what matters to you and your family.
 
I enjoy nature, road trips, hiking, disc golf, travel, movies, wine, music, visual and performing arts, family, and friends.
