As a native of Fort Worth, she knows the market, especially in the TCU area
and southwest and west Fort Worth.
CRS - Certified Residential Specialist
LTG - Leadership Training Graduate
To get these two designations, CRS and LTG, she had to take classes and pass tests and
show that she had over 150 transactions in real estate, showing that she is serious about
her business and continues to learn and train to be the best she can be.
Of all the REALTORS® in America, only the top 5% have the CRS designation and those 5%
do over 20% of all the transactions. They are the cream of the crop!
