I am a real estate broker and owner of Valencia Properties Texas, LLC. I enjoy helping families find and live in homes they love because that’s where the magic, the mess, and the fun of everyday life happen. Being a homeowner for over two decades in the beautiful state of Texas, I know the local area quite well.
My background stems from the IT world where I worked as a programmer and earned a Master’s degree in Computer Science from NYIT while working full time. A day after my wedding, I left New York and made Texas our home.
Though I never planned it, I homeschooled my daughters for ten years, both of whom entered college as sophomores at the age of sixteen. My favorite title is Mom and my favorite spot in the world is home.
I am detailed, organized, and a hard worker.
I began my real estate career as a home builder of energy-efficient homes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, leading my own home building company from the boots to the suits. In partnership with Building Savvy Magazine, I built the Savvy Idea Home in 2006, earned awards, and made many families happy owning their custom, high-performance home.
I served as a founding builder member of Green Built Texas, an initiative of the Dallas Builders Association that created the building guidelines for energy-efficient construction in north-central Texas. To date, there are over 27,000 homes registered under the program, which is also searchable in the Multiple Listing Service system used by thousands of Realtors statewide.
