Humans Over Houses
Hello Friend! Welcome to our home base where you can search listings from every brokerage.
Having been born and raised in Waco, Texas... I have the inside scoop on just about everything WACO! Both sides of my family either farmed or ranched in the surrounding areas for generations. My Grandmother was a Broker and an Appraiser. Many of my aunts and uncles have served this community as agents, brokers and community leaders. You could say that Real Estate is in my blood.
I haven't lived in Waco forever. I left at age 18, college bound. Spent 15 years in Houston, Texas where I sold New Construction Homes for 6 years. But, Waco has always called to me. So, in 2007, my husband, Chris McGowan, and I relocated and purchased a home in the Mountainview area of Waco. In 2010, we welcomed our son, Oliver, who's middle name changes, frequently, to match his favorite color.
Living outside the area gave me perspective. I continued to work in New Construction for another 6 years while in Waco until an opportunity to purchase a Real Estate Broker's book of business was offered. At. that time, I started my own business under the RE/MAX umbrella.
I always had a fire for owning my own company and it was not long before I earned my Broker's License that I stepped out as an independent brokerage known as the Waco Home Team. The Waco Home Team was known for excellence in customer service, for going the extra mile, and for, always, being on the cutting edge of new marketing. Still, juggling all the systems and tools required took time away from the most important task of connecting with our clients. In 2020, Cristi purchased a franchise share in NextHome and opened NextHome Our Town in the Market Square Center on Bosque Boulevard.
