Barksdale Air Force Base (Bossier City) is across the river from Shreveport. I assisted military buyers and sellers with their real estate needs, and still do at this time. My nephews and cousins served in the Air force,Army, Navy and Marines.
I must say real estate is the occupation I have enjoyed the most throughout my working career. I am a Full Time Realtor! My jobis to provide information tomy buyers and sellersthat they need to know about a property and point out things they have told me they want or do not want in their next home or the home they are selling. Sometimes this may not be what my client wants to hear. I must think of their BEST interest.

I enjoying spending time with my family and friends. I love animals. I showed Great Dane dogs when I lived in Shreveport. I have enjoyed bowling since I was in my teens.
