Having been born and raised in Texas and being a long-time resident of the Paris
area, Ms. Ross began her career participating in the Service Industry in which she
was required to deal with people from a service management perspective. Setting
goals and objectives for herself and others, measuring and reviewing those goals
and objectives and reporting findings to management on a regular basis. Much
experience and personal satisfaction was gained during her years in the Service
Industry. Experience that would lay beneficial groundwork for later success in the
real estate industry.
After her marriage to husband J W, the Ross's had 5 children to raise and a future
to protect. Together they chose to place available family investment dollars into
rental properties in the Paris area. Ms. Ross took on the property management
duties for these rental properties as well as assist in property management for
other 3rd party investors. This became Ms. Ross's induction into the real
estate industry. This experience along with an interest in real estate auctions as a
new option for servicing real estate customers around the Paris area, have awarded
Ms. Ross her auction support opportunity at AltaTerra.
While busy attaining her career goals, raising 5 children on the verge of becoming
teenagers quickly convinced Mr. and Ms. Ross that their children were requiring
more focus. Ms. Ross modified her career to provide daily parental guidance and
direction as their children entered their teens and moved towards their college
years. Ms. Ross became deeply involved in the scholastic goals of her children as
they began preparing resumes for their collegiate futures. Ms. Ross spends her free
time in support of their grades, in school as well as extracurricular activities and
service. She also spends any additional hours working as an officer in the
local Parent Teacher Organization as well as managing benefits programs and fund
raising events in and around the Paris area.

This mentality is what gives him an edge as an agent to provide this same dream to a buyer, seller or investor in these industries.
