Tell us an interesting detail about you that many might not know?
Many have seen me on camera for real estate marketing, but few know I did musical theater for over 10 years. I have always thrived on stage or in front of groups, so when the opportunity presented to market real estate by way of video and media, I jumped on board! The musical theater also gave me a deep appreciation for music, and you can always catch me listening to it. Fun fact, my favorite musical genre is heavy metal!
What lights you up in life?
My family. I have a 7-month-old son who has changed my entire world and given me a new outlook on my life and career. My husband is also in new home sales, so he understands the chaos! I am lucky to have someone beside me who supports my goals. I also would not be where I am today without the support of my parents, who have become the best grandparents this year!
How did you get into homebuilding?
By complete happenstance. I was in graduate school at SHSU and the company I worked for closed due to the owner relocating. I needed a job quickly and interviewed for a Sales Assistant position with a local home builder. I had no clue at the time how much I would fall in love with new home sales and marketing, but within a few months, I knew this is exactly where I was meant to be.
What do you love about homebuilding?
I love how the home building is always evolving and never stagnant. 2021 will mark my 10th year in Houston’s new construction sales and real estate marketing, and every year has been completely different. I am always learning, always growing, and I am so appreciative to be in a role where keeping up with market trends has a positive impact on my work. I love tracking and staying abreast of where the industry is going!
What is one thing you want people to know about your company?
I would want people to know about our growth. It is incredible what they have accomplished in a short amount of time. Many people do not know the Legend Classic Homes story, that we are a privately held Texas builder, or that we have been in business for almost 30 years! We are set to close over 1,000 homes in just the Houston market this year and are hungry for more! We have a phenomenal sales and leadership team who are so excited to take the company to the next level, and I am honored to be a part of it!
What is your favorite Model, Floorplan or Feature?
I am loving our Cabot floor plan by Princeton Classic Homes! It is a grand 2 story that features 2 bedrooms down with 4-5 bedrooms total, formal dining, study, game room, open concept, and 3 car garage options. It is such a thought out plan with everything you need and more!
What is the best advice you have ever been given?
Someone told me once to take every experience, good or bad, and to find gratitude within it. As 2020 has presented challenges for all, I remind myself often of this. While the world is uncertain currently, I am grateful to be in an industry that has thrived during this pandemic, and for an opportunity to switch roles within the industry that allows so much professional growth.
