What leads a teacher to switch careers? After 25 years of teaching all ages except for high schoolers, I took the advice of the woman we bought our house from here in Georgetown. She suggested I get my real estate license. I did just that. And I’ve not looked back. It’s been 16 years, 14 of them as a licensed broker in the state of Texas.
I have worked for three of the national franchises and ten years ago, I came up with a more personal approach to real estate. I started Urban Homes and Land. I donate $500 towards closing costs for my clients who are teachers, firemen/women, policemen/women, or active military. We need to give back to the people who make our communities better places to live.
We are in the middle of it all –on the historic Square in Georgetown’s picture-perfect downtown that seems to attract one-of-a-kind types. We offer exemplary service to customers and clients. We have built our business on referrals.
It must be working—in November of 2014 Urban Homes and Land was awarded the Best of Georgetown Award for Best Real Estate Office. Our award hangs proudly in our office.
I have been awarded the 5 Star Professional Agent certification for the third year in a row. Of over 30,000 agents, approximately 1,200 earn this award. It is based upon feedback from my clients, for which I am grateful. We’ll all appear in the June issue of Texas Monthly Magazine.
IFor the 17 years I’ve been here, I have worked hard to help build our community. I’ve served on the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for 6 years, and was in charge of Business Network Luncheon, Lunch and Learn, and the Ambassadors group, as well as Vice-Chair of Membership. I then moved on to serve on the Main Street Advisory Board, co-chairing the Economic Restructuring Committee for over 5 years. This hard-working board raises money for the façade and sign grants that help local downtown overlay district businesses look their best.
Our company prides itself on being a full-service real estate company. My job now is to educate buyers and sellers and guide them through the process of purchasing or selling real estate. Whether it’s their primary home, a vacation home, a home for a college-age child, acreage, or a retirement home—our company can handle it all. Our agents offer knowledge, experience, and compassion. They are top-notch and I am very proud of them.
I love this business so much, I’ve convinced my husband, Michael Cox, to join our group of dedicated REALTORS. When we get time off, we head home to our 2.5 acres covered with oaks, roadrunners, deer, and rabbits. We hang out with Pancho Villa, our 100 pound Golden Retriever given to us by clients, and our pound puppy, Fifi Marie LePew.
Life is good here in Williamson County. I’ll be happy to help you find your next home here! And, if you’re set on leaving, we can help you do that, too. And when you decide to come back…we can handle that, too!
