After a successful corporate career in customer service and 10 years in the beauty world as an Esthetician, Renay joined our team at the persuasion of her brother, Mark. Being available for her clients whenever they need her and communicating in a down to earth manner sets the tone for the type of service one can expect from Renay when working to reach real estate goals. This funny, energetic extrovert desires to be a resource for her clients even after helping them with their real estate needs. When Renay is relaxing, you will find her either in the woods with her dog, Cowboy or with her husband Travis in the pool. Renay also loves to travel and find an adventure wherever she goes!
