Lily Alspaugh defines her role as a Realtor as a calling and mission. This AccreditedLuxury Housing Specialist (ALHS) and GRI (graduated Realtor Institute) goes above and beyond to help individuals, couples and families come out on the winning end of Real Estate transactions. Never one to sit back and wait for something to happen, she moves forward to make things happen. In fact, her motto is "My Hat is on and I'm Ready to Work for You!" The key to Lily's strong work ethic is her passion for determining the needs and desires of her clients and then putting her expertise and high energy to work to achieve their goals. She is committed to excellent customer service and empowers her clients by staying current on residential real estate information and accessing a network of experts as needed. She is tenacious about matching home buyers with properties that best fit their lifestyles and dreams. Home sellers benefit from her ability to help them understand the process and, with the help of a professional stager and photographer, how to make their homes attractive for sale. Before entering the Real Estate field, Lily was a business owner for six years. She effectively managed all the components that make businesses thrive and survive which includes finances, sales, hiring, employee relations, client interactions, marketing, communications and networking. She believes her experience makes her stand out as a Realtor who has learned how to value her clients, recognize opportunities for them and exceed their expectations. Lily has a law degree from a university in Colombia, her birthplace.
When she first came to the United States in 2000, she had no English skills. Since then, she learned the language, completed a bachelor's degree in business administration, became certified and taught as a bilingual teacher, and ran a successful business. She and Peter, her husband of 11 years, are parents of two children, Nathan, 9, and Sarah, 7. She is proud to be a successful role model for her children and often reminds them that "not even the sky is the limit." When she is not serving her clients and taking care of her family, Lily reads, works out, eats healthy, collects hats and designs jewelry. She is a member of the Houston Association of REALTORS® (HAR) and the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). She helped found a Cypress chapter of WOAMTEC (Women on a Mission to Earn Commission) where she acted as president and is an ambassador to the Houston-Vintage Chapter.
