They served the community for thirty years and built many lifelong friendships with their clients.

Kay was a member of the Junior League of Fort Worth and the Junior Woman’s Club. She volunteered for Mayfest and became a co-grounds chairman which entailed setting up and dismantling the entire festival. She ran the store at her daughter’s school, Trinity Valley, where she managed markets for the parents to buy TVS merchandise. She co-chaired the TVS auction which raised money for scholarships. She was involved in all of her son’s sports activities, volunteering to handle ticket sales at football, basketball and baseball games.
Running her own business and volunteering in various capacities, has given Kay the ability to connect with people and build relationships. She is detail-oriented, organized and always goes the extra mile to help. She plans to bring everything that she has learned throughout her thirty years of customer service and selling experience to her real estate career. She is excited about helping clients find a new home or sell an existing one and building new relationships.
