Raised in a pioneer family in Wichita Falls, Judy has lived in Dallas for 40 years. After attending SMU and graduating from the University of Texas with a degree in political science, she worked in Washington, D.C., for Senator John Tower. She got her real estate license after moving to Houston, where she bought, renovated, and managed rental properties for an investor. She raised her two daughters in the Park Cities and was active and involved in the PTA, the Park Cities YMCA, and Highland Park United Methodist Church while also devoting time to her family.
She returned to real estate in 1999 and has been a multimillion-dollar producer, selling citywide but specializing in the Park Cities, Devonshire, Preston Hollow, Lakewood, Turtle Creek, and Uptown. She holds the Historic Home Specialist designation from Preservation Dallas. Most of her business is repeat or referral, as she focuses on personal service, enthusiasm, financial responsibility, loyalty, confidentiality, and listening to her client. Integrity and hard work have created her competitive success.
She is a member of the Junior League, The Dallas Woman's Club, the Dallas Arboretum, Kappa Gamma Alumnae, the YMCA, Highland Park United Methodist Church (HPUMC), and the University Meadows Neighborhood Association.
Her charitable causes include Night Owls (HPUMC), Habitat for Humanity, Dwell with Dignity, KKG Tablescapes, the Ruth Altshuler Thanksgiving Food Drive, the Austin Street Centre, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America.
