I had a wonderful holiday season this year! It started out the week before Thanksgiving with an Appreciation Party that I hosted with my friend and co-worker, Cynthia Lopez. We had all our past clients join us at Texas Restaurant in Richardson for wonderful food, music, drinks and socializing. I also invited my leadership from Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Chi Zeta Omega Chapter where I serve as president.

I attached some of my favorite pictures for you to see. This is an tradition and looking forward to my event next year as well!  Each guest left with a Poinsettia to get them in the holiday spirit along with a $10 token to bring back to use at Texas at a later date.

I hope each of you made many memories this holiday season. I am still praying and thinking about all the people that were affected by the tornadoes last week. If you need anything please let me know!

Enjoy my slideshow and don’t forget to contact me if I can assist you with any real estate needs!

Thank you for following my blog. Until 2016!

Random Acts of Kindness

Even though Random Acts of Kindness week isn’t until February 14th, I wanted to go ahead and participate now! The truth is for years I have suffered from seasonal depression. But this year I have felt great. I believe that doing community service projects all year long has lifted my spirits. When I share and give to others, I feel better. You should try it too!

I got the idea to do Random Acts because a friend of mine’s daughter left her a note that said “These are all rinsed. Random acts of kindness.” Something little like helping with the dishes can make someone’s day. And remember, this is something the whole family can enjoy doing.

Need some ideas?
*Treat someone to fresh fruit
*Put gas in someone’s car
*Sing Christmas carols at a nursing home
*Buy something for the person in line behind you
*Rake your neighbor’s yard
*Cook a meal for someone
*Give warm clothes, shoes and boots to the homeless
*Renew a friendship
*Facebook message a genuine compliment to some friends
*Leave a nice server the biggest tip you can afford
*Talk to the shy person at the party
*Adopt a rescue pet
*Send a care package to a soldier
*Bring holiday sweets to work
*Help the stressed parent by babysitting one night
*Leave a whole bunch of pennies heads-up for kids to find on the sidewalk
*Go to your friend’s kid’s event
*Send dessert to another table
*Give away stuff for free on Craigslist
*Decorate for the holidays
*Give someone a book you think they would like
*Spread the goodness!

Don’t worry, I am going to complete many Random Acts of Kindness this month….and hopefully every month. Just today I was standing in line for the restroom and I let the lady behind me go before me.

I love scrolling through the internet to see what others have done. I have attached some of my favorites. Would you mind sharing with me different Random Acts of Kindness that you either gave or received?

As always, I am never too busy to take care of any of your real estate needs! Contact me anytime, especially during the holiday season. It would make me happy to help you!

Tour a “Green Home” this Friday in Lake Highlands

There is a home in Lake Highlands known as “Urban Reserve” located at 1 Vanguard Way. The home is considered “Green” as it is built around streams and ponds to conserve water, has geothermal heating and cooling, high-performance windows, spray-foam insulation and an 18,000-gallon cistern to collect rainwater from the roof.


Not only is the 4,500 square foot only eco-friendly, but it is beautiful! It was designed by Tod Williams and Billie Tsien Architects of New York. The owner’s best design is the kitchen, large for her many dinner parties! It also has many unique features such as the floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides in the living room and an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven tucked away under the main living level.
