To put it simply, Eleanor is passionate about real estate, and she loves her job. Like many people in the 2000s, Eleanor was ready for a career change after working for 12 years as a professional archaeologist and two years as a college professor. By nature, Eleanor is a very giving person and the idea of helping people realize their dreams of home ownership was the most alluring aspect of real estate for her.
Eleanor approaches her business from the perspective of the Golden Rule and she works very hard to have the transaction end in a win-win for both sides. “I believe people are smart, they should be respected, and they know what they want. My job is to help them achieve their goals and help make their dreams a reality. If everyone is happy after a transaction is completed, I feel like I’ve done a great job,” she says. Her teaching experience helps her tremendously when guiding both buyers and sellers through a real estate transaction. She has a great deal of patience and the experience to be able to foresee certain challenges that can crop up during a transaction. Her job is to ameliorate bumps in the road during the course of a transaction and to do everything in her power to make the transaction as smooth as possible for her clients.
Socially, she is a member of the Houston Blues Society and can often be found on the dance floor when she’s out enjoying local music. She also loves to attend cultural and artistic festivals, go camping, and is happiest in the kitchen cooking a large meal for family and friends. Once a month she invites a group of current and past clients, friends, and family to explore the city of Houston and venture out to some of the city’s lesser-known attractions.
She is a graduate of both University of Houston (BA, Anthropology) and Texas A&M University (MA, Anthropology).
