Meet Renee Williams
Wife. Mom. Entrepreneur.
It's so nice to meet you!
I’m an ex-loan officer and corporate strategy administrator turned investor, REALTOR®, Director of Operations and business coach. For over a decade, I provided organizational support on billions of dollars in mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and divestiture transactions for my corporate job, all while having a real estate license and investing on the side. Now I’m leveraging that experience to help seasoned women real estate agents create a business they love and secure the future for themselves and their families.
My gift is bringing solutions to chaos in business and in life. I’m a pain point finder, a problem solver, and a strategist at heart. My purpose is bringing life, business strategy and real estate operations together. I enjoy educating women about real estate exit strategies and providing the best map for us to become financially free together.
My top bucket list items are to retire my husband so he can play golf any time, pay off my kids' college tuition, create an investment fund for my kids, nieces & nephews, and buy dream homes for my parents and in-laws complete with cleaning services and wrap around porches so we can sit, laugh, drink sweet tea, and watch the Texas sunset.
After graduating with a Bachelors degree in Healthcare Administration from Texas Southern University, I worked as an Alzheimer's Facility Director for several years. I enjoyed leadership and operations from the very start. In 2004, we had 2 kids under 2 years old, so I began the search for a position with similar income that would allow me to work from home. It was the middle of the sub-prime boom, and I landed in real estate as an Independent Licensed Loan Officer with a large real estate investing group.
Once our children were both in school and the 2008 recession began, I took on corporate administrative roles with a global investment banking firm, then a mid-stream oil & gas firm in Houston. During that time I also started buying investment properties, became a Right-of-Way agent and a licensed REALTOR®.
My Corporate Experience
As lead administrator for a multibillion dollar business development and strategic planning team, my responsibilities at work expanded to support the efforts of several senior executives, analysts and interns. I had the pleasure of always being "in the room where it happened", delegating action items, assisting with due diligence and facilitating internal succession planning activities until my boss and mentor retired in 2015.
In 2016 I accepted a position with a hospital construction & management firm. My roles included work in business development, joint ventures, strategic planning, and HR management. Although I worked with great people and I appreciated my job, I wasn't fulfilled. I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur. I've always known it, and I wasn't getting any younger. So on my 46th birthday in December of 2018, I submitted my resignation.
I Quit My Corporate Job to Do Real Estate Full-Time
Now I would finally have a chance to quiet the voices in my head and become a millionaire agent representing clients full-time. Boy, was I wrong! I quickly discovered that I sucked at lead generation! To avoid prospecting, I spent months setting up my systems (P&L, SaaS, CRM), building a website and planning my model & strategy. After six months of struggling with lead generation I had an epiphany. "Oh my goodness, operations & strategic planning are my happy place! I love bringing structure to chaos." In July 2019 I signed on for a 6-month contract with a $100M luxury sales team at Keller Williams in The Woodlands, TX as Director of Operations and I've never looked back. Since then I've worked to improve operations, increase profits and solidify strategies for several real estate firms. Most notably Monarch & Maker the acclaimed, woman owned, residential construction & design firm for Tiger Woods' Blue Jack National golf course community in Montgomery, TX.
It took years to find my purpose. Now I wake up every morning thinking about all the great things you & I are going to accomplish together. I am here to motivate you out of complacency, fear and procrastination. So get your butts in gear like a Jane Fonda work-out video and let's get you moving in the right direction. What feels like HEAVY LIFTING for you is light as a feather to me. It's not too late, it's not too hard, and you are not alone. I'm excited about the lives (and businesses) we are going to change together!
