    I earned a bachelor's degree in education from Texas A&M University in College Station in 1985. After graduation, I spent 14 years in flight service, with American Airlines, where I learned the value of excellent customer service for a business to thrive. My entrepreneurial spirit, led me to purchase a franchised store called Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt in 2011. During the time of our ownership, I managed all phases of the business,. Throughout my time with Orange Leaf, and working with young adults, I learned the importance of patience, excellent communication and flexibility.

    I joined Better Homes and Gardens, Gary Greene in 2015. I love learning and teaching others about real estate! My goal is always to educate my clients so that they have the information needed to make wise decisions regarding the sale and purchase of homes and/or investment properties.

    My family and I have been residents in Cypress, for 29 years and I love calling this community home. We've made a lot of friends and memories throughout the years! All of my girls have attended school in CFISD, played sports, volunteered and worked in the community.

    I believe that it is important to have faith, character and integrity and to be passionate about family, friends and business. Sharing life, via relationship with Christ and others, is what defines my life. My family and I have participated in the foreign exchange program and welcomed 2 young ladies into our home, Giulia from Italy and Borsi from Hungary, whom we now consider as daughters. In addition to the foreign exchange program, I love supporting causes with an eternal perspective, including Running for Greater Things, Living Water International, Pine Cove Christian Camps and my local church.

    All of the life experiences above have prepared me to be a trusted advisor for clients in my real estate business. My slogan is "Real estate powered by purpose...YOU!
    I'm happy to be of service to you whenever you have real estate needs.

    Vernon and Karen gave WANDA 5 stars out of 5
    Wanda is a savvy negotiator, highly knowledgeable about the market, and highly responsive to buyer preferences and concerns. She is also well connected to various services in the area, her recommendations are reliable and her advice to us was right on target.

    Russ gave WANDA 5 stars out of 5
    Wanda was a delight to work with. We actually started the process in late 2018 and I postponed buying a place due to mortgage rates rising at the time and was uncomfortable with the potential mortgage payment that I'd be paying for at a similar property and price. She stayed prudent and sent me ideas and places to take a look at while I was waiting to start the house hunt again. Once we started up, we found some great candidates and narrowed it down to the one I ended up buying. This is the third house I've bought and easily the most enjoyable/positive experience overall I've had while buying a house. Wanda has a great affinity for getting the right and fair deals for her clients while make sure things get done in an efficient and timely manner. I can't recommend her enough.

    Wanda was great! She was available by email, text message, or phone call anytime I had questions and responded clearly and in a timely manner. She brought us to many homes and made sure she set up the showings to best meet our schedule. She was easy to talk to and patient with all my questions (being a first time home buyer, I had many!). She provided references for everything along the way. She was organized and stayed on top of dates things needed to be completed and sent friendly reminders about all of the small steps you could easily overlook along the way. She provided a great scope of knowledge about real estate and understood what was most important to us in finding the right home. I highly recommend working with Wanda if you want a smooth and enjoyable experience!

    When my fiancée and I immediately fell in love with a home, Wanda did everything she could to help us get it. We are so grateful for her and cannot thank her enough for her amazing work!

    "Easy" is not normally a word that would describe the process of buying a home, but our experience has been just that because Wanda took care of the hard parts for us. For over a year, she patiently scoped out the listings until she found one that had everything we wanted, then stratigically helped us make an offer that was fair for both parties. We needed help finding vendors for some remodeling work, so she contacted several for us and arranged for bids to be made for the jobs we required. Most of all, she has been a trusted friend, truly gifted with patience for the hard to please, and the desire to help and serve her clients. We are so fortunate to have her in our corner as we searched for and found our forever home!

    Wanda is a sweet, caring person with an amazing gift for helping people. I trust her as my realtor because I know she truly has my interests at heart, and is willing to go the extra mile to find the perfect house for my family. When we find that house, I will trust her to market and sell our current one. She will not just treat you as a client, she will be your friend.

    Wanda did an excellent job of branding and marketing our home in the Cypress market. The photos and videos taken our home were very professional and represented our home in a favorable way to the market. The open houses were frequent, well attended and led to several offers on our home. We were able to target a specific clientele for our home, and were successful in getting a contract with the buyer at a price point which met our expectations Great job, Wanda!

    Wanda is amazing. She knows how to meet the needs of the client, she knows what the market, strategy, and she goes the extra mile or two to get the job done. Thank you Wanda for your expertise, trustworthiness, and professionalism. My family appreciates your business.

    Wanda went above and beyond to help close our home. She helped meet the contractor when we could not make it and helped keep the pool full while we where out of town. I would definitely recommend Wanda to anyone needing to sell.
