CultureMap: What inspires you to do what you do?
Tammie Bennett: I have never had more fun in my life than selling real estate on Lake LBJ. I love spending my time marketing or showing beautiful lake houses, most of which are second homes: homes that are established to be a fun, relaxing retreat for a family, a place for them to make memories that last a lifetime.
CM: What’s one piece of advice you’d give to people looking for their dream home?
TB: Call me!
CM: And advice to those who are selling?
TB: Call me! I would say to both buyers and sellers: Be sure to use a good local Realtor, one who knows the area, specializes in that type of property, and provides quality marketing. Don’t be afraid to ask them questions about their experience. This is the best way to protect your investment and to ensure you get the best deal in the long run.
CM: What do you consider your "special skill"?
TB: Knowing all the ins and outs of Lake LBJ and all the special places and hidden gems that exist on this fantastic lake.
