For me, real estate is a passion and a way to provide my clients with the love for your community. Born in Bangkok, Thailand, and a Texan for the past 35 years, I am also a resident of Sienna Plantation in Sugar Land where I make my home. My real estate career began in 1991, and I've never looked back. In 1996, I joined RE/MAX and my career truly took off as a multi-million-dollar producer. I believe the American Dream comes in many shapes and sizes, so I've tailored my skills to meet the needs of my clients, including experience in Residential Sales, Commercial Property Management, and Construction Management. I am also an Accredited Buyer's Agent, and still learning everyday new ways to provide the best service to my clients.
In 2005, my husband Todd joined me in my passion and Team Riddle was born. My career has climbed new heights since then. I'm honored to have achieved the membership in the RE/MAX Hall of Fame, both the National and Houston Association of REALTORS, and the Women's Council of REALTORS. I have also been recognized with a RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement award and the RE/MAX Chairman's Club award for the past 8 years. My home office of RE/MAX Fine Properties has ranked me as a Top Producer, and I have also been ranked as the #1 Top Producer in Sienna Plantation every year since 2002 and the prestigious Diamond Award the past 2 years. Team Riddle has been honored among the Top 20 RE/MAX teams in Texas. Todd and I have been living our own American Dream in Sienna Plantation for the past 11 years, and have a growing family of three children and 2 beautiful grandchildren.

I was raised in Clear Lake, Texas and attended Texas State University where I majored in Physical Education and minored in Corporate Fitness. I played baseball and was an active member of the Kappa Sig Fraternity. Having over 20 years of sales experience in the oil and gas industry I earned a number of certifications.
In 2008 I joined my wife in the real estate business where we established the Team Riddle concept.
In the last 9 years we have acquired many awards for being one of the top Producing Teams in our industry. In 2008 I also acquired my Broker's license which gives us a cutting edge on all parts of a real estate transaction. As a Team Leader for Team Riddle, I enjoy all the facets of the home buying and selling process. I find dealing with the people as well as the problem solving part of real estate rewarding. I have the comprehensive knowledge necessary to bring even the most complex real estate transactions to a successful conclusion. I have a strong passion for the work involved and a deep respect for my clients. My philosophy about serving my clients is simply to provide all the information necessary to make a wise decision. I am looking forward to working with you and providing you with a sense of total satisfaction in your choice of real estate professionals.
