My husband and I are blessed to have built our home in the beautiful Texas hill country! We have an incredible son that is our pride and joy, a special-needs dog, 2 kittens and a horse!
I grew up a military child with my dad serving in the Air Force. We were stationed at a few different locations, including an overseas assignment in Germany, but have been very fortunate to call Texas my “home” since I was in elementary school. Growing up, we were always a very active family. I was a cheerleader through high school and participated in 4-H. After graduating, I went off to college in North Texas where I was an active member in my sorority, Chi Omega, and received a Bachelor’s of Science in Education. I married my best friend, Brian, not too long after graduating college and we spent 9 years traveling with the Air Force while he served as a pilot. This is where my passion for real estate and interior decorating really started to blossom. We lived in 7 different homes during this time and have had first-hand experience with VA financing & refinancing, renting, buying, selling and building. During this time, I was unable to teach and the timing was not right for me to pursue real estate since we were not able to put down roots in one location for an extended period of time. I was able to develop a career in the aesthetic industry as a pharmaceutical and medical device territory manager and educator that I was able to transfer with and develop new territories with our military moves. With over 10 years of experience in this position, I feel that the discipline, attention to detail and extraordinary customer service skills needed for this role translate well to my new career path as a real estate agent. I am excited to finally be pursuing my passion in real estate now that we have planted roots in New Braunfels! I look forward to the opportunity to help you with all of your real estate needs!
We were so lucky to connect with, and hire, Kristen Kotowski, of South Texas Realty. A lot of the things we experienced during this move, were very similar to what Kristen has personally experienced, and successfully guided other families through. When you are picking your professional team, people who understand what problems you may face, and have successfully found solutions in the past, are the BEST to work with. Kristen knew we didn't have time to mess around, we needed to find the right house, and get closed, fast. She put in the legwork learning ordinances, comparing locations, researching communities to make sure we ONLY looked at real possibilities. And she did this all through email and phone, because we lived in a completely different time zone. In fact, she took the time to drive us to each home during our 2 days in San Antonio, and after we had to go back to PA, conducted virtual tours of the homes.
