Agent Bio

I graduated with a degree in Agricultural Economics from Texas A&M University, May of 2010. Shortly after, I headed to Houston and started working for ULR. If there is one thing I’ve learned during my time here, it’s that you should never do the bare minimum. I continually keep myself up-to-date with the current market trends, so that I can effectively guide my clients through their real estate transaction. I’ve also earned my ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative), CNE (Certified Negotiations Expert) and CHMS (Certified Home Marketing Specialist) designations and possess the tools needed to better assist my clients.

Houston has gone through so many changes in just the past seven years that I’ve lived here. And what’s fascinating is that we’re still witnessing new developments for the future. In an ever growing and fast moving market, it’s difficult for a consumer to know their options. I’m here to streamline the real estate transaction, in order to make buying, selling or leasing as easy on my clients as possible.

The experience of buying a home doesn't have to be a daunting one. Whether you’re looking to lease, buy, sell or are just curious about what your next real estate options look like, give me a call. I’m happy to help you with whatever residential real estate needs you may have.

What clients are saying..

I recently relocated to Houston from Dallas for a new job. I was extremely nervous about finding a place to live not knowing anything about the city. Not only did Kat help me find the perfect place, but she even put together a list of cool restaurants, shops, and bars I should try! I was so lucky to find such a wonderful agent to work with. Whether you're just looking for a new place or you're moving to town for the first time, I highly recommend letting Kat help you with your search!
Stop searching - and call Kat now if you are looking for a place in Houston! Not only did Kat assess my needs, she also visited my choices for me (I was working out of the country) to take pictures. I have no doubts in recommending Kat.
I was relocating to Houston from Jackson, MS for work and had no knowledge of the Houston area. Kat helped me figure out which neighborhoods would be ideal for me. I had a pretty demanding list of needs like commute, budget, and a large dog. Within a day, Kat sent me a list of apartments and rental houses that fit all of my criteria. Not only was Kat efficient and effective, she was friendly and enthusiastic about working with me.
When I made the decision to move closer to work I had roughly 5 weeks to find a new apartment. Being picky I should have known it would come down to the wire due to my inability to pick an apartment building. Thank goodness Kat was my agent. Despite my indecisiveness she remained patient with me and provided me with many options to choose from until I found what I was looking for. Without Kat's thorough research and knowledge I would have never been able to find the right place and most likely would have settled for another year at my former residence. She shows up on time and is fully prepared and is a joy to be around. I highly recommend Kat as you will not be dissapointed. Thank you Kat for keeping my best interest at heart. I truly appreciate you.
I have recently accepted a job, which required me to relocate to the Houston area from Baton Rouge,LA. Kat was able to walk with me through the entire process. While I was still living in Baton Rouge she was able to send me listings of great places that included all the things I requested. It only took one weekend of viewing these listings with Kat to find a new home. It has everything that I asked her for. Without Kat this move to Houston would have been impossible. She has a great sense of understanding what her clients want in a home. Added bonus; she is a pleasure to be around! I would recommend her services to anyone who is the market for a new home.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Kat to find an apartment in Houston. I was on a time crunch as I literally only had two days to find an place due to circumstances with a long distance move for a new job. Kat was recommended to me by a friend in Houston so I sent her an e-mail with the days I would be available for apartment hunting, what I was looking for, and a price range. She was eager to help despite the short notice and quickly sent me a list of places that met my needs with pictures, a detailed description and her input on each option. I let her know which ones I wanted to check out and the next day she picked me up from my hotel for an afternoon of apartment tours. As we visited the complexes, Kat pointed out key features and asked questions of the various property managers to assist me in my decision. It was clear that she wanted me to be extremely satisfied with whatever place I chose. I ended up finding a great place that met all my desires. Kat is highly professional, knowledgeable and friendly and I certainly recommend working with her.
My husband was recently relocated to the Houston area from Oklahoma City. We were so fortunate that we were able to work with Kat through our move process. She really made our transition seamless! My husband and I are pretty picky when it comes to what we like and she always was so patient with us through the whole process! She is truly a joy to work with and I would recommend her services to anyone who is in the market for a new place to live!! Kat- thank you so much for all of your help and for being so kind and attentive. We really appreciate you!!
When I realized it was very likely I'd be relocating from Ohio to Houston, I started looking for a place to live. I stumbled upon the Urban Leasing site and was immediately sent a list of apartments from Kat. Having never been to Houston, I was somewhat overwhelmed until I looked over this list, picked a few places and decided to try to check them out when I was in town for a final interview. I instantly felt comfortable in following whatever advice she gave me, as she seemed to know what I wanted before I even said a word! In my limited time, she was able to show me a few areas of the city-something that influenced my acceptance of the job offer when it came! She was excited as I was when I found what I definitely feel is "my perfect home." I had many questions about relocating and she answered every single one. I've recommended her to anyone who is looking for a new place and will continue to do so. Thank you Kat for all your help and encouragement, it is certainly much appreciated!
