When I show houses, and I walk into the living room, my clients will either discuss

But, as I reflect on my own life, my husband and I will sometimes watch the television. We will watch a movie together, or sometimes watch a television series. However, I fine that we either are

So, do people really still watch televisions? Are they still the focal point of the living room? Or has the smartphone taken away the focal point of the room, and has become the focal point of the individual (wow, that’s deep).

Beneficial Reasons to Get Rid of Television

Save Money

Not only on cable, streaming channels, and electricity, but also not being as tempted by advertisements.

Better Sleep

Instead of “I’ll go to sleep when the episode is over” and then falling asleep on the couch, why not just get up and go to bed?

More Activities

This allows time to read, play games, meal prep, organize, clean, take a relaxing bath…

More creativity

By eliminating the television, it may get you out of your comfort zone. You may tackle projects you have always wanted to, or you may pick up a new hobby you have always wanted to try.

Deeper Relationships

Without the television as a distraction, this would allow you to share your day with your loved ones. This creates more focus and attention to those you care about. Also, this will ultimately create more awareness of your surroundings, and those around you. You can reminisce, reflect, and talk about life!


I know, I know, it may sound crazy, but in the day to day life, with all that we have to do, do we really NEED the television anymore. Think about all of the time you truly spend with the television. Hours. Days. Weeks. What if you spent that energy that was more productive? Think about all you could do!

“Reliable and Ready” REALTOR® since 2016. I was born in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, but was raised in Texas since 1997. When I found out we were moving to Plano, Texas, I remember looking forward to riding a horse to school and a brand-new pair of cowboy boots! Growing up in Plano prepared me to be competitive, quick, and to have a strong work ethic. I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. Axe’em Jacks! That is where my love for East Texas began. The nature, warm smiles, football games, and community values can't be beat! I graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I was a middle school math teacher in Tyler, Texas. I met my husband, Travis, in Sunday school, and we have been married since September 2016. I love being a REALTOR® in East Texas! Relationships are genuine, the area is beautiful, and the market is rockin’! I am an involved REALTOR® to better the community. Some of the organizations I am involved with are: The Professional Development Committee, Texas Real Estate Political Action Committee, and Tyler Educational Networking Group. Some awards I have won were “The Hustle Award” in 2016, and “Rookie of the Year” in 2017. When I am not working with my clients, I like to spend quality time with my friends and family doing the following: running, target practice, read and participate in book club, and playing with my dachshund Greta.
