Not all real estate agents are created equal. I'm different. I'm involved. Whether you're looking to sell your home, or find your next one, I will actively work to make it happen quickly. Why use me?
Putting Down Roots & Buying a Home?
You won't waste your time
You get to give us an in-depth idea of your perfect home via our detailed buyer questionnaire — which helps us ensure we're only showing you properties that meet your criteria.
Most agents ask the standard questions — "how many bedrooms, baths, and how much square footage do you need?" Our questions go much deeper than that, and get super specific.
We not only ask what features your dream home needs to have, but how important each of those features is to you. Is having a large kitchen your top priority? Is it imperative to have a home office? Is a first-floor master bedroom a must?
Getting granular with your needs allows us to hone in on the properties within your budget that are most likely to be the best fit from the very start.
You can leverage our In-depth knowledge of the area
We Are Katy. We live here, have built our families in Katy, our children go to Katy ISD schools, and we plan to stay here.
Being Katy residents, we know things about the neighborhoods, schools, amenities, upcoming changes, and the general community that people who live outside of Katy can't glean from maps and sales comps.
These are the details you learn from living here and being an integral part of the community.
That said, we also sleep, eat, and breathe real estate in the greater Houston area. We have plenty of experience in the surrounding markets and can help you plant roots or take flight in West Houston, Brookshire, Cypress, Fulshear, Richmond, Rosenberg, Sugar Land, and more.
You'll have our expert guidance through the entire process
We'll be with you every step of the way throughout the home buying process as your Buyer's Representative. Once you find the perfect home, and get it under contract at a price you love, you'll move onto the inspection and financing stage of the transaction.
We have an arsenal of trusted contacts - from inspectors to mortgage brokers - to help you understand each step. And if you need them, we also have movers, painters, drapery hangers, and more on speed dial if needed. We can help with recommendations for a world-class title company and help you narrow down the best options for home warranty coverage.
We will negotiate and advocate on your behalf - helping you navigate the entire transaction from contract to closing day.

Taking Wings & Selling Your Home?
You get experts in marketing
Any real estate agent can list a home, but it takes marketing skills to sell it fast - and for top-dollar. Working with us means having an advanced and expertly executed marketing strategy for selling your home. The Founder of Roots & Wings Realty Group is an award-winning digital marketer with 20+ years worth of marketing knowledge and experience that’s put to work directly for you.
Sell your home faster & for more money
When you hire us as your listing agent, you'll be provided with:
Help in Pricing Your Home
Pricing your home correctly from the beginning is critical. Price it too low, and you'll lose out on cash; price it too high, and your home will struggle to get showings and offers. As a Certified Pricing Strategy Advisor, we can help you formulate a pricing strategy that will help you earn the most money in the least amount of time.
Staging Advice for Your Home
According to a survey by the International Association of Staging Professionals, homes that are staged spend 87% less time on the market and sell for 17% more than unstaged homes. If you currently reside in your home, we'll advise you on changes you can make to help your home sell faster. If your home is currently empty, we can connect you with a designer to stage it, if needed.
Professional Property Photos
Photos sell. Period. According to Redfin, homes with professional photos get 61% more views, while the Wall Street Journal reports that listings with high-quality photos can gain anywhere between $934 and $116,076 more on the market. We invest in having professional photos taken of your home at its best - at our expense - before publishing and publicizing your listing.
Digital Marketing Campaigns
According to the National Associations of REALTORS®, 42% of home buyers say the first step in the home-buying process was looking online for properties and 92% of buyers used the internet in some way in their home search process. Our digital marketing campaigns for your home target buyers on Google searches, Facebook, Instagram, Har.com, Realtor.com, Redfin.com, Zillow, Trulia, and more.
Print Marketing Campaigns
From high-quality yard signs on standing white posts to flyers to postcards - we'll determine which additional offline placements stand to bring in buyers and make sure they're implemented.
Ready to take wings, get you home listed - and SOLD?
Whether you're buying or selling, you'll get fierce negotiation on your behalf
Whether you're buying or selling, you'll be happy to know that we're experienced, effective, and fierce negotiators — we’re Certified Real Estate Negotiating Experts (RENE) with The National Association of Realtors. There are over 100,000 Realtors in the Houston area — less than 200 of them have the RENE designation from the The National Association of Realtors. By working with one of them, you can help ensure you’ll sell your home for more or buy your home for less.
