After 15 years in sales and business development jobs, I took a leap of faith into the world of real estate in 2013. Serving as an ISA and quickly moving up to be Director of Operations for one of the largest (by sales volume) teams in Williamson County gave me 4 years of incredible experience with systems, processes, and team leadership. A need for better work/life balance led to a shift into commercial real estate in 2017 and then in 2020 I began assembling the Way Realty Group to better serve clients by adding residential agents while also continuing to grow commercial business. Being a trail blazer in education has allowed me to train hundreds of sales agents in the last 8 years. I am also honored to serve as a member of the Agent Leadership Council (2018-2021) and as Managing Director for the Commercial Division at the Keller Williams Cedar Park Leander Market Center. The key to better serving clients, my team, and fellow agents is to always be listening, learning, and laughing.

I came to the United States 20 years ago from Venezuela. Being new in the area, I did not immediately feel at home, but homeownership changed that for me. I knew I wanted to become a Real Estate agent and help others feel the same way. I am a mom and wife to a firefighter/business owner and because of my life accomplishments and my willingness to dive in, I enjoy assisting my husband with his construction business. I’m passionate about houses and everything related to them. After all, they hold our greatest treasure, our family! Degree in Industrial Design, Construction work, Bilingual Spanish/English.

Growing up as an Army Brat, I was able to visit many places and experience many different cultures. My travels taught me that Texas is the place to be! As a seasoned professional I strive every day to exceed the expectations of my clients and recognize the value of the trust they have placed in me. I graduated from the University of Texas with a BBA in Operations and Supply Chain Management and my experience includes service in the United States Navy and time as a Regional Operations Manager for a Fortune 500 company where I aided in two concentric mergers. Outside of Real Estate, I take pride in giving back to the community through serving as a Board Member of Healing with Horses Ranch in Manor, TX, which offers evidence-based programs to address challenges experienced by at-risk individuals, veterans, and people with disabilities.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being in the real estate world for over 20 years as an investor, owner/builder, project manager of residential renovations/remodels, property manager, interior designer and a licensed agent. Integrity, good communication and to know & do what’s best for my client is of the utmost important to me.  I’ve served for many years on the Board of Directors of multiple condo/building associations in Hawaii and at my spiritual center. Also served as president of the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset in Maui.  And It’s great to be back home in the state where I was raised!
