I am a sixth generation Texan, and a second generation REALTOR®. I am lucky enough to follow in the footsteps of my mother (Sandy Hancock) in helping buyers/sellers/renters/landlords with all of their real estate needs!
A little bit about me:
- I was born and raised in Bulverde, Texas, on the edge of the hill country. I spent my summers on the Guadalupe river, and winters by bonfires in the fields of Comal county. I graduated from Smithson Valley High School in 2005. Despite my rural upbringing, I consider San Antonio as much a part of my home as Bulverde. I spent my college years on all sides of San Antonio and the outlying suburbs. Also during college, I managed a Whataburger in San Antonio, and the Sonic Drive-In in Bulverde. In total I spent 10 years in food service management. When I wasn't working, I attended San Antonio College, Northeast Lakeview, and Northwest Vista for my basics. I went on to graduate from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) where I obtained my B.A. in Psychology, and later my M.S. in Experimental Psychology. During my time at UTSA I oversaw a cognitive lab funded by a Nation Science Foundation Grant and assisted in numerous empirical studies. My degrees focused not on the emotional side of psychology, but on quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis.
- When I am not handling real estate transactions, I am busy being a member of the Bulverde/Spring Branch Chamber of Commerce, and I attend Bulverde Baptist Church. As far as hobbies go, I enjoy graphic and web design, as well as tinkering with old computers. Also, I have published articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals looking at psychological and sociological phenomena such as cognitive capitalism, Spearman’s Law of Diminishing Returns, and non-cognitive predictors of academic performance. While real estate is my career, I still collaborate with my scientific connections at UTSA.
My upbringing gave me my values and knowledge of the area, my jobs provided me with experience, and my education formed my logic.
I hope to apply my unique skill set to help you make your Texas real estate dream come true!
