My husband (Rodney) and I have owned and operated Holly Realty in the Holly Lake Ranch area for the last 16 years. The agency has handled residential listings and sales, nightly and monthly rentals and some commercial property listings and sales in a 15-20 mile radius of the gated Holly Lake Ranch community. We have always been impressed with Barbara and John Jarvis and the level of service and growth demonstrated by Lone Star Realty. We think they will take good care of the agency and the customers we are transferring to them upon their purchase of Holly Realty. Further, we look forward to continuing to be agents for and with them and the rest of their team.
I was born and raised in Ville Platte, Louisiana, and attended McNeese College in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Rodney and I married 48 years ago, raised four children and currently have two granddaughters; both of them attend college in the Dallas area. Our oldest daughter, Deirdre Cannon, just obtained her Realtor’s license and is working in the north Dallas market.
Raising and tending to a family of four kids occupied most of my time and effort in our first 25 years of married life. My work experience outside the home consisted of retail sales in the sewing machine sales and service business in the Dallas area. For a period of time I owned my own sewing machine sales and service business in Mesquite, Texas where we specialized in teaching classes on sewing, embroidering, and creative use of fabrics.
Being in real estate has given me a chance to do what I most enjoy, and that is meeting and working with people to achieve their goals and expectations. As owners of Holly Realty we have met and worked with people from all over the country who bring to the area a whole array of backgrounds, work and life history and interests. It has been a pleasure helping them find their slice of heaven at Holly Lake Ranch in their retirement years. We look forward to continuing to do that with future clients of Holly Realty and Lone Star Realty.
Sewing, genealogy, home decorating and a round of golf now and then are my favorite hobbies are my pastimes at this point in my life.
