Mary "Tootie" Lyons
Tootie Lyons has been a Realtor since 1997. With life-long experiences associated with ranching and livestock, she brings a keen understanding of what is required when someone is interested in buying or selling country property.
“I grew up in southern Illinois in our family business of buying and selling Quarter Horses. My background serves me well in my chosen profession of real estate. Dad had a very strong work ethic and placed client needs above all else.“ Tootie’s background includes time spent teaching secondary business education in Arizona. She co-owned a business that bred, raised, sold and exhibited nationally renowned cutting horses. In 2005, in tandem with her real estate career, she successfully developed a retail store in Brenham (Ranch Antiques) which she sold in 2010.
Her compendium of experience lends itself well to a career in real estate, and her success is underpinned by those earlier experiences, and her love of land, people and all things challenging. She does whatever it takes to find the right buyer for a client's listed property, or the right property for a customer in a search mode. Whether that entails research, due diligence, establishing value, dealing with the legalities, or negotiating, Tootie can be depended upon for her knowledge, attention to detail and caring concern. Proof of her success is in the fact that she has repeatedly represented, over her fifteen plus years in the business, numerous clients. "I love when a client relies on me to help them once again; it's a privilege to have their loyalty and trust," says Tootie.
Living on her own 41 acres near Lake Somerville with her husband Ken Rixman, Tootie continues to enjoy the country life that includes her two horses and small menagerie of other pets.
