1. Please tell us something about yourself.
I am a mortgage specialist with a real estate background of 15 years. I have worked as a real estate agent for 10 years before getting my mortgage license. I have a passion for helping people obtain and use home ownership to build wealth because it’s the best and most accessible way to do it. I am also a passionate fitness junkie and part time group fitness instructor.
2. How did you get into what you do right now? Please tell us more about your journey?
I joined the army 20 years ago which lead me to Texas and that is when I really got into real estate. This was a time of a lot of real estate investing shows and books and I see it as a great way for me build wealth for me and my family. I started buying property and then became a real estate agent to start helping other people do what I was doing. In 2012 I started my own real estate brokerage and had a growing team before relocating to Houston in 2013 which is also when I got licensed as mortgage lender. I found a new passion in the mortgage business and knew from then on this is what I would be doing.
3. Who are your role models?
Besides my mom and dad I would say I have several business, marketing and mindset mentors like Tony Robbins, Ed Mylett, Gary Vee and my current mentor Anthony Lee.

My family first and then it’s people. I love to see people succeed with real estate or when I am teaching a fitness class.

6. How are you using different social media channels/online marketing to market your work?
I am going full court press in 2020 and beyond with every social media channel I can find to provide as much value to people before they ever get to know me personally. I believe that is the way to build a business in this new decade.

Having regrets when I am older. I want to try everything I can

Social media and the power it was going to have. I wish I would started going heavy on social platforms 10 years ago.

There are so many crazy things that happen behind the scenes to get people into a home and the craziness is stressful but also mentally challenging but I love the opportunities I get to impact people through a real estate transaction.
