Before, during, and after the real estate transaction, my friends and clients frequently ask me who I recommend completing ________. Whether it is roofers, plumbers, contractors, landscapers... I have worked with several individuals commercially engaged in their trade. I support local businesses. Not only will working with local business improve the economy, but you will know the people behind the products and services. However, at the end of the day, the choice is up to Y-O-U! Here are some suggestions to help facilitate your decision making:

  • Know what you want before you get estimates.
  • Reach out to Better Business Bureau Serving Central East Texas. You can research the information on the company, history of complaints, verified customer reviews, and see if the business is an Accredited Business. Businesses who are Accredited make a commitment to the following standards: to build trust, advertise honestly, tell the truth, be transparent, honor their promises, be responsive to their customers, safeguard privacy, and embody integrity.  Check out my BBB Business Profile Page!
  • Check out Locals Loves Us in Tyler, Texas. Locals only vote for their favorite places in more than 200 categories with a secure, online survey.
  • Read the customer testimonials, however, don’t consider this enough information. Testimonials are not a substitute for checking references.
  • Ask friends, relatives, and coworkers for references.
  • Interview at least three of the professionals who you are interested in completing the job.
  • Once you have a few professionals that you are considering, ask for references and multiple written quotes.
  • Discuss future service issues.

If you ever have any questions, I would be happy to help!

“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.
