What brought you to HLC?
I was ready to come back to Texas and questioning whether or not I wanted to stay in the commercial real estate industry. I consulted with a trusted colleague and he recommended that I speak with Matt Carthey at HLC. I took his advice, met with Matt and the rest of the HLC Fort Worth team and felt that it was a great fit for me!

How do you hope to grow at HLC?
Holt and the rest of the leadership truly give their brokers the freedom and support to run and be entrepreneurial. I’m excited to use new, different, creative ways to create value for HLC.

What about your role at HLC most excites or interests you?
Having teammates and partners that I’m excited to work with and that I can trust to build something together.

Which HLC value resonates the most with you and why?
We Serve. We work in such a relationship-driven business, and people want to work with those who treat them well and who provide great customer service.

How do you define success?
I define success as being truly happy with what you do every day – we spend so much time in the workplace and being happy in our chosen profession spills over into family and personal life.

How do you like to spend your free time?
Hanging out with friends and family, golfing, snow skiing – I have great memories of family ski vacations, skiing has always been a big part of my family’s life.

Everyone has a good app idea. What’s yours?
An app that uses your phone’s camera to scan a room for germs and viruses.

 Favorite quote?

What could you teach me to do in five minutes?
The Texas A&M football game yells!

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you want to have with you?
A laptop with WiFi access, golf clubs, and a dog.

What is your secret talent that no one at work knows about?
I have a pretty good knowledge of wine, somewhat of a sommelier in training.

If you could steal credit for any great piece of art, song, film, book, etc. which one would you claim?
The sculpture, “Fearless Girl” by Kristen Visbal. The statue was first installed in New York City at Bowling Green, at the intersection of Broadway and Whitehall Street, facing down the “Charging Bull” statue. It is now located across from the New York Stock Exchange in the Financial District of Manhattan.

Last meal?
A steak from Del Frisco’s.
