One of the many ways I have worked to set myself apart from other real estate licensees is through advancing my knowledge through education. 

In the state of Texas, a real estate licensee only has to obtain 18 hours every 2-years to keep their license.  And, most only real estate licensees accomplish only those state-mandated educational requirements; but not uncommon agents.

Education is important to us at uncommon realty.  We understand that sharpening our skills and fine-tuning our laser focus is paramount for our success.  My dedication to going above and beyond in my education directly benefits you, my clients.  

Below represents a collection of the advanced education, certifications, and designations I have earned.  As the list continues to grow of our educational advancements, they will be listed here.  This list represents the recognized certifications and designations to which I have earned but by no means fully represents all of the time we dedicate to advanced educational pursuits. 

Remember, we do all of this to provide you with the best possible real estate experience.
