Realtor®, Property Manager
I started with ALPS in 2020, right in the middle of COVID! I grew up in Austin and graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Wind Energy Technology. I became interested in the dynamics of Real Estate and began my career in 2015 with Stanberry Realtors where I focused on residential sales and earned sales agent of the month on multiple occasions.
Currently I manage a portfolio of properties with ALPS and I enjoy providing great service to our customers and clients, focusing on communication and clear strategy to solve problems. My wife and I love to explore Austin with our dog Singer, visit with Family and Friends, and always look for something new and interesting to do in our free time.
