You are an expert in the Houston Real Estate market. What led you to focus on real estate as a career?
Real Estate is an ever changing industry allowing for interaction with people from all aspects of life. Every transaction is completely different and I am enthusiastic about our great city! Being an agent allows me to showcase so many of the fantastic things Houston has to offer and help others develop roots here and become a part of our community.
What do you think sets Beth Wolff Realtors apart from the competition?
The leadership of Beth Wolff and Ed Wolff offer superior knowledge of market trends, problem solving, and marketing strategy. They are engaged and supportive every day, and are involved in every transaction. This to me, is one of a kind and creates a unique dynamic that clients can truly appreciate.

Honesty and Integrity have been pillars of my career and continue to guide me in all that I do. I have made it a point to try and expand my knowledge of the market every day and work diligently for each of my clients. Nothing can replace hard work and truly caring about the outcome of a transaction. I build lifelong relationships with my clients.

I enjoy the networking opportunities, the classes offered which have enhanced my professionalism, and the connections with fellow professionals that support the LGBTQ community. I confidently refer clients to fellow members, knowing that they will be well cared for.
What’s the best advice you ever received as a business owner?
Don’t look for overnight success. It is through hard work and many failures that true success happens.
What's your favorite thing to do in HTX when you're not working?
My new passion is discovering/hiking the various trails around Houston and the surrounding areas. It is a lesser known part of our great city that we have so many parks and trails available to the public. In the Spring, I’ll be back to kayaking and exploring on the waterways.
Barbeque or Mexican, and where do you go for it?
How can you make someone decide between the two? For Barbeque – Gatlin’s (in Houston), Killen’s (in Pearland). For Mexican - Teotihuacan Mexican Café on Airline.
