During her college years, Vanessa owned and managed a chain of successful clothing stores. She graduated with a marketing degree in Mexico and arrived at the United States because of his husband’s graduate studies. Having lived through multiple relocations due to her husband job, Vanessa decided to become a Realtor after landing in The Woodlands, TX five years ago.
