About Us

Personal

We've lived in the Dallas area for 20 years. Our children grew up and went to school in Texas, both graduating with honors.  We've helped Habitat for Humanity by actually volunteering and building houses for people to live in here.  Our children also pitched in on various community projects and loved scouting and explorers.  The hustle and bustle is invigorating but we also like peace and quiet.  We like being near the lake both for fishing and just to look at it. 

Professional

We're both licensed Realtors®.  We specialize in representing clients in the purchase and sale of single-family residences and income property around Dallas.  We truly love this area and pride myself on my knowledge of current transactions, school districts, neighborhood information, and related services, including mortgage, insurance and inspection information.

We're customer-driven Realtors® dedicated to achieving results and providing exceptional service.  If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, we'll put our combined 35 years of real estate expertise to work for you!

Short Sales & Foreclosure Specialist

Short Sale and Foreclosure Specialist is a designation from training and experience dealing with banks on short sales and helping buyer purchase properties (REOs) from lenders.

We have been both on the selling and the buying side of Short Sales and have helped owners to avoid or deal with Foreclosure. 

Accredited Buyer Representative is a designation from intensive training and experience in dealing with buyers and their needs.

We subscribe to the tenets of Equal Housing Opportunity as required by Federal law and pledge not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, and familial status.

e-Pro

Electronic Professionals are Realtors® who have demonstrated their understanding and capability with modern electronic tools, such as the Internet, wireless listing access, and social media for real estate.  e-Pro training covers many of these tools for both buyers and sellers.

Texas Affordable Housing Specialist

Texas created a special designation for Realtors® who are trained with special knowledge about statewide affordable housing resources and products.  A TAHS-designated Realtor® is dedicated to increasing the rate of homeownership and retention.
TDHCA Texas grants this special designation for Realtors® who have undergone training for TAHS designation, which includes instruction on "green" and taking a wholistic approach to affordability.
The Greater Dallas Association of Realtors® offers this designation to members who have been trained on the various neighborhoods in Dallas that have historic significance.  The architecture and amenities as well as the rich history of Dallas housing make this specialty designation important to buyers looking into mid-century or earlier construction.
NAHREP Both of us have learned other languages.  The National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals welcomes members (fluent or not) who desire to assist customers with Spanish-speaking backgrounds.  There is no French-speaking organization, but we would probably join that, too.
¡Bienvenidos a Dallas!  Bienvenue a Dallas!
Veterans Land Board Texas Veterans' Land Board
Probate Certification Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist.  Before an owner dies we hope they have put Estate Planning into place.  There is no single answer for every owner and all owners should consult their professionals for what works for the owner.  Once an owner dies, however, the executor or administrator may need help navigating the complex process of Probate.  We can help.
