Lorena is a native of Houston, Texas. Growing up in the Historic 6th Ward area gave Lorena a deep appreciation for true inner city living. After getting married, she and her husband moved into the Heights where they are raising three daughters who all share the same appreciation.
Lorena spent 20 years in the mortgage/banking industry. While at JP Morgan Chase, Lorena became involved as a mentor with Junior Achievement serving youth in both Houston and Spring Branch ISDs. Lorena was able to apply her fluency in Spanish to deliver the Junior Achievement experience to students with limited English proficiency. This experience sparked a desire for Lorena to become more involved in the community and public schools. In 2003 she decided to put her career on hold to become more involved in her children’s activities and the community. Lorena became an active Volunteer in Public Schools (VIPS) and an involved leader in the Girl Scouts. Lorena has also served as a docent with Houston Zoo and a volunteer with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston special events.
Looking for a different career path, Lorena re-entered the workforce providing supportive services at a real estate agency in the Memorial Villages area where she discovered an interest in the real estate field. In 2008 Lorena joined Anderson Properties as Office Coordinator. In 2014 Lorena decided to apply the valuable insight and experience she gained in residential real estate becoming a licensed real estate agent.
Lorena’s 20 plus years as an active Heights resident has made her a true ambassador for living in the Heights and surrounding areas thus makes her the perfect agent for those searching in these areas. Her and her husband’s involvement in various community causes throughout Harris County provides her with a broad knowledge of the Harris County area as well as wonderful networking opportunities. This sense of community involvement carries through with their daughters who are actively involved in youth groups and as volunteers with both St. Anne’s Catholic Church and St. Martin’s Episcopal Church.
