JBGoodwin REALTORS' mission statement to simply "HELP PEOPLE" is what immediately motivated me to join Austin's #1 Hometown Real Estate Group. I worked in the capacity of "helping people" as an elementary school educator and counselor in Round Rock ISD and Irving ISD for over 20 years. So it was a perfect fit to become part of the JB Goodwin Real Estate Family!
Having grown up in Brownsville, Texas (southernmost city at tip of Texas) for 18 years, I was fortunate to learn to speak Spanish. I love the Hispanic culture and of course, that includes their delicious food, mariachi music, festive traditions and family gatherings. After obtaining my Bachelor's and Master's Degree, I married and moved to the Dallas area and started my family. A job transfer brought us back to Austin which was truly a blessing because I knew we landed in a phenomenal place to live. Austin is a dynamic city that offers an exceptional quality of life in the "music capital of the world", along with many indoor and outdoor events throughout the year. Fun and exciting activities to experience are concerts, running or kayaking at Town Lake, enjoying the natural swimming holes, F-1 races, Trail of Lights, rodeos and eating amazing food like Texas BBQ!
My husband James and I live in the northwest part of town and our children attended the Caraway, Canyon Vista, Westwood feeder school pattern. We kept extremely busy with sports, Boy Scouts, school and church activities. Now the children are all young adults with Shane, Sarah and Charly in Leander, Andy and Megan living in the Zilker Park area, Aaron in Grapevine/Dallas area and Stuart working on his master's degree in Indiana. We love it when the house is full when all of them return home for Thanksgiving!
After personally buying and selling a home six times over the years, I know the excitement and often stress that comes with real estate transactions. I will help guide, advise and negotiate for you as we work through the process together and make your real estate experience a positive one! I look forward to meeting you soon!
