Today I have an exciting announcement about my future, which involves a story from my past.

I proudly joined Ebby Halliday Realtors almost 10 years ago. Back then, I was a brand-new agent and I didn’t know much, but I knew that Ebby Halliday had a stellar reputation in the community. I went to a local Ebby Halliday office for an interview and told the manager that I was a new agent, I didn’t know a single soul in the area, and that English isn’t my native language, but also that I’m willing to work hard and do whatever it takes to become the No. 1 agent.

She said that she was glad to see me join the team, but she also warned me that almost 90% of new agents don’t make it to their second year—it might not be a bad idea for me to have a plan B in place.

Little did she know that real estate was already my plan B at the time (and plan C or D, if I’m being honest). Shortly after, I purchased a home, and it made more sense for me to move to the Frisco office, which is where I met Terri Macaluso, who was managing that office. I told her the same thing I told the manager with whom I’d initially interviewed.

“I’m so thrilled to announce that I’m joining my former manager Terri Macaluso at Coldwell Banker Realty.”

She simply told me, “Well let’s get to work then.” It was under Terri’s leadership, management, and mentorship that my dream of becoming the No. 1 agent came true. I still remember that year’s award ceremony. Terri kept it a surprise from me; I remember she had a huge grin on her face, and it seemed like she was more excited for me to get the award than I was!

That’s why I’m so thrilled to announce that I’m joining my former manager Terri Macaluso, who also happens to be one of my biggest cheerleaders here at my new home, Coldwell Banker. The tools and support they have here are truly unmatched, and I can’t wait to give you an update on my experience in a future post.

I also want to give my love, honor, and respect to Ebby Halliday Realtors and thank them from the bottom of my heart for being my home and my family for almost a decade. I will miss them all dearly.

Additionally, I want to thank my friends and clients for your continued support, love, trust, and loyalty. I promise the only disruption and inconvenience you might have (if any) during this transitional period is memorizing my new email address, My phone number is still the same, so if you have questions or need any help at all, please feel free to reach out to me! I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us all.
