Core Principles Results… Our business is based solely on the recommendations of our friends and clients. These relationships have been built through a lifetime of earning trust, delivering results and keeping promises. Confidentiality…We respect your privacy and the confidential nature of the information we share. We do not discuss your personal information with anyone outside of the transaction (i.e. Realtors, Brokers, Loan Officers, Title Companies, Attorneys). Honesty…We will be truthful with you in all dealings…Good or bad you will always get an honest answer. We have the experience to know what the truth is. Professionalism…We insist on a cordial, appropriate, transparent and professional relationship with all parties involved in the transaction. Integrity…We know what we can and cannot do and what the market will and will not tolerate…We have the wisdom, the pipeline and reliable referral sources so we do not make promises we cannot keep or take on projects that are beyond our scope.
Meet our Team I earned my Texas Real Estate License in May of 1982 and my Brokers License in December of 1984. I joined RE/MAX in 1982. In m y career it has been my pleasure and honor to help hundreds of families buy and sell their homes. I have closed over 3,000 thousand sales in my 30+-year career. Many of those have been a family member or friend of another client. In 1995 I made the commitment to work “By Referral Only”. This commitment means that I rely on references from my clients. Consequently, I work even harder to gain my client’s trust. If I do a great job for my client, they will use me again and refer others with confidence, knowing that their friends and loved ones are getting the best service and counsel.

We are committed to working with great clients who trust us and appreciate that level of service and support that we offer. If we exceed our client’s expectations they will continue to bless our business. Business Journal Top 50 Each year the San Antonio Business Journal recognizes the “Top 50” agents in the city out of the 8,000 members of the San Antonio Board of REALTORS for their sales volume in dollars and for the number of transactions closed. I broke into the Top 50 in 1996 and have been in the Top 5 every year since 2000. REALTOR of the Year Each year the Sales and Marketing Council of the Greater San Antonio Builder’s Association recognizes an individual real estate agent for their contribution to the industry, their civic contributions and their sales volume. I have been honored as GSABA’s REALTOR of the Year in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010,2011,2012.

The award is based on industry involvement, professional and civic contributions as well as sales volume. I have been named as a Platinum Top 50 every year since its inception.
R Professional Designations: I earned my Texas Real Estate License in May of 1982 and my Brokers License in 1984. In order to distinguish myself from my peers I have worked very hard and invested a great deal of time in continuing education far exceeding what is required by the state. I currently hold the following designations recognized by the National Association of Realtors. Certified Residential Specialist: Less than 1% of all Real Estate agents in the nation hold this designation. The CRS designation requires a body of work over several years as well as specialized classes. There are fewer than 100 CRS designees in San Antonio. Certified Residential Broker: This designation is specifically for owners and managers of Real Estate offices. The classes focus on profitability, management, risk and other aspects of owning an office. There are fewer than 20 CRB designees in San Antonio. Accredited Buyer Representative (Manager): The ABR and ABRM designations are for those agents who represent buyers and for managers who oversee agents. Classes focus on agency, relocation, services and issues related specifically for buyers. This information has been very helpful in building my relocation practice and improving the services we offer to buyers. It has also been helpful representing sellers because I have enhanced my negotiation skills and have the insight to protect my clients. There are only 150 ABR designees and only 3 ABRM designees in San Antonio. Certified Commercial Investment Member: The CCIM designation is considered the PhD of Real Estate. This designation requires several classes and written demonstration reports as well as a comprehensive exam. There are only 50 CCIMs in San Antonio. Certified Relocation Professional: The CRP is one of the most difficult and time-consuming designations to acquire. The CRP focuses on the needs of relocation candidates as buyers and sellers with special attention paid to the value of properties and the specific needs of a transferred employee and their family. There are only 10 CRPs in San Antonio. Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist: The CLHMS designation is awarded to agents who distinguish themselves in the Luxury Home Market. Certified Distressed Property Expert: The CDPE designation is awarded to agents who have experience and expertise in â€œshort saleâ€? and lender owned properties. Of the approximately 8,000 members of the San Antonio Board of Realtors, I am the only person that holds this combination of designations. However, these designations are only a part of my continuing education. Each year I attend sales and marketing seminars across the country to expand my body of knowledge and to build my network of like-minded agents. I want to continue to improve my skills and build my practice.
