As a Native Texan who grew up in Dallas with a second home on Lake Austin and a third home in Houston, you could say Texas has always been my home… more particularly Dallas / Fort Worth. In the 1960s, my parents met while attending Texas Tech.  Both came from strong European backgrounds and were very successful in business.  My father graduated with three Master’s Degrees, was a Pilot for the Navy, then became an Engineering Headhunter for NASA until he retired.  My mother supported my father during his time in the Service.  Following, she gained employment with Texas Instruments until she retired.  She then ventured on to assist Presidents of successful businesses throughout the remainder of her professional career.  Being raised by business minded parents taught me the skills of success, which inspired me to become a business owner. Why a Real Estate Professional? As I grew up in Dallas / Fort Worth, my love for real estate developed. I was always intrigued by the beautiful homes and buildings. My parents and I would admire the architecture with their unique designs.  We’d reflect on the land and wondered who may have roamed the property before it was constructed.  I grew up visiting my grandfather’s home which was, and still is, a beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright design on Abrams Road in Dallas as seen here:
Also, at a very early age, my love for staging and interior design began. My parents would allow me to rearrange furniture and paint the walls of my family home whenever I felt the need for a change. I enjoyed creating artistic decor out of things lying around the house which they put on display. They were very supportive and allowed me to express myself. Passionate about the various aspects of real estate, I was elated to learn in college that I could become a Realtor. Initially, I received a Real Estate Certification through Dallas County Community College’s two year program. I continued my studies in pre-law, business and psychology at DCCC and University of Texas at Dallas. While attending college, my real estate career initially began in 1990.  I was hired to be the Office Administrator for a large RE/MAX real estate agency.  A few years later, I found myself running the sales office of the Tybrisa Beach Resort located in Savannah, Georgia. When I returned back to the Metroplex, I continued with my college studies while working six years as a Legal Assistant / Paralegal for a prestigious Downtown Dallas law firm.  In 1997, I obtained my Real Estate Salesperson’s License through the Texas Real Estate Commission and immediately began working for RE/MAX All Cities, where I earned the Top Producer, Top Selling Agent and Top Listing Agent awards for the year.  This continued until I obtained my Real Estate Broker’s License in 2005, where I immediately opened the doors to my boutique brokerage, Tina Leigh Realty.
