Annie knows firsthand the uncertainty and opportunity that accompany a major relocation half-way around the globe. With past residencies in Asia, the Caribbean and multiple cities across the United States, she is well-equipped to help others looking for a new home make the best decisions when facing these same challenging circumstances.
Annie earned a BA degree in International Business Studies from Texas A&M University (minor in Tourism Science) and started her professional career as international sales lead for a global supplier of electronic hardware and components. After eight successful years, she transitioned to the hospitality industry, working and managing trade shows and hosting corporate events. She has had the opportunity to work with and represent multi-national Fortune 500 companies in the technology, automotive and oil & gas sectors.
Although Annie is a newly minted realtor, she has spent the last seventeen years in the Houston area and is no stranger to the local real estate market. She has acted as an unofficial agent for both friends and family, scouring the MLS for leads, locating and negotiating on special homes that many would say are impossible finds. Annie can also see potential, identifying the updates that make a house a home. She has managed large-scale interior/exterior remodeling projects from start to finish, bringing the vision to reality. Annie also keeps tabs on the local market for potential investment opportunities.
Annie’s friends and family would say she has a unique style of her own, an eye for design and a big heart. Her favorite hobbies are tennis, piano and travel. Most family vacation destinations have been chosen based on architectural significance, with the ruins of ancient Rome and Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia in Barcelona being some of the highlights.
Her worldly experiences, genuine personality, passion for her work and communication skills (native Mandarin speaker) would be an asset for anyone looking for a temporary or forever home.
When Annie is not working or travelling, she spends her time outdoors with her family – an engineer husband (who has a matching passion for architecture), two active young boys and a tuxedo cat named Tux.
