Impedit vocibus pertinacia no usu, ad minimum molestie urbanitas has, pri zril constituam ex. Ne fabulas accumsan inciderint vis, nam ei menandri forensibus. Eam vocent aperiri gloriatur ne, id quo probo idque vitae. Inani omnium gubergren sed at, has augue accusam conceptam cu, et nam integre oportere. No minim possim vis, quo malis hendrerit ei, at docendi copiosae facilisi est. Ignota vocent euripidis eu vim, mea platonem vituperatoribus id, quo et equidem quaestio interpretaris.

Blanca Hale

Its interesting the different paths life has you travel. I can now add realtor to one of my many accomplishments. I am a Registered Nurse by trade. I graduated from Baylor University in 2009 and from Our Lady of the Lake University in 2013 with my MBA. As I was finishing up my MBA degree I decided to enroll in a real estate course. I didn’t quite know anything about the real estate market but I knew after completing my MBA degree it’s important to be well versed.


I have been selling homes for 3 years. I am bilingual in Spanish. I work with multiple lenders and always negotiate in the best interest of my clients. I am a strong advocate for my buyers as I want them to see their home as their long term  investment. I speak with my clients about budgets and realistic monthly payments. I believe educating a buyer in a home purchase empowers them to make realistic real estate purchases. I enjoy selling and buying homes. It’s something I always knew I add to my portfolio to diversify.  As I look back,  I’m happy I took the leap of faith and chose to embrace something new.  I am now blessed with the opportunity  to help people attain the American Dream, that my friends are goals.
