Growing up in Venezuela, my family valued entrepreneurship and believed in success being achieved through honesty, dedication, commitment, and hard work. I have carried this with me throughout life, in everything I have done. I have a passion for real estate and know these values, combined with sales, negotiation, contract management, and communication skills developed over 15 years in the oil and gas industry will allow me to successfully cater to your real estate needs.
Before moving to Houston, I attained a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from one of the most prestigious universities in Venezuela. After graduating, I was eager to move to the United States and I chose Houston as my home, where I obtained a Master of Science in Structural Engineering from the University of Houston. I then pursued a successful career in the oil and gas industry for 15 years, working for Fortune 500 companies such as NOV, GE, Cameron and Schlumberger. During this time, I gained experience and acquired skills which prepared me for success in real estate. This includes international experience working in multimillion dollar projects with high profile customers, a successful track record in International sales, customer excellence, technical and commercial negotiations, contract management and project management.
Even before dedicating myself to real estate full time, I was always passionate about it and was actively involved in Houston’s real estate market, developing and managing a substantial portfolio of investment properties in the inner loop. In addition, I have constantly been there to serve friends by providing them with sound advice and direction in areas such as real estate investment, home buying, and home staging and decoration.
I like to stay active and support my community. When not working, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends, cooking, trying new restaurants, traveling, exploring Houston’s wonderful parks, practicing yoga, gardening, and attending the Houston Symphony as well as other local theaters.
14 years working, living and playing in the Great Heights and inner loop area.
