Born Down Under and raised in Texas,
I spent my childhood cruising Highway 37 to our family’s second home in Port Aransas. We were drawn to this beautiful island community and truly enjoyed everything it had to offer.
After graduating Churchill High School in San Antonio, I accepted a scholarship to play D1 NCAA Volleyball at the University of San Diego. I attained a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies, and in the process, I realized the value in becoming bilingual. After graduation, I moved to Central America for a year to teach English and learn Spanish. Through immersion, I became proficient in conversational Spanish.
The Island continued to call, and I found myself back in Port Aransas. Upon returning, I became involved in the family’s interior design business. I was directly involved in assisting clientele, selecting materials and overseeing remodel/new construction projects. Through this process, I was afforded the opportunity to work hand in hand with reputable builders, suppliers and a discerning customer base. This also gave me the experience to recognize the potential and suitability of properties based on individual needs.
A Real Estate career was inevitable. After becoming a Licensed Texas Real Estate Agent, I was employed by Port Aransas Realty. While there, I represented a multitude of buyers and sellers ranging from private second homes, investment/rental income properties, or clients looking to relocate.
After working in the Island Moorings Office, I was relocated to represent a new boutique master planned community. Sunflower Beach has opened the door to directly represent buyers in search of new options in a unique community. From beachfront home-sites, condominiums, townhomes, luxury cabins, and custom homes, Sunflower Beach has a diverse range of real estate opportunities.
Continuing my passion for Real Estate, I acquired a Texas Real Estate Broker License and opened a brokerage, Tarpon Realty. I office out of Sunflower Beach, and I am the exclusive listing agent there. Although I spend the majority of my time on location at Sunflower Beach, I represent clients on the open market as well. The name Tarpon Realty was chosen to represent and remember Port Aransas’ quaint and hospitable coastal namesake and culture, and that is the business philosophy in which we aim to honor.
My husband, Matt Richter, and I are fortunate to have all of our immediate family living here on this special island. Being surrounded by our family is a blessing and calling Port Aransas home is an absolute privilege.
We look forward to meeting you in person.
