I want to be Your Realtor!

 “Real estate is a business that allows you to really make a difference in someone’s life.”   ~  Debbie Hughes 


My History


I started my real estate career in 1991 with Jerry Hughes Realty and have been listing and selling homes for 27 years.  I am a licensed real estate Broker in the State of Texas, and also hold the designation of GRI.  I work full time in the market and am a market leader for American Real Estate, ERA Powered.   I am married to Glenn Hughes, he is a real estate photographer and a breeder of registered Beefmaster cattle.  Our son Ben lives in Nashville Tennessee, is married to his beautiful wife Lisa and they have their first child on the way in October.  Ben is a police officer for Nashville Metro Police Department and Lisa is Director for Kinder Care in Nashville.   Our daughter Kayla Cheek is married to Nick Cheek and they blessed us with our first grandchild Mackenzie Rae Cheek in January of this year.  Kayla is a veterinarian  at Robertson County Vet Clinic in Hearne/New Baden Texas and Nick is an agricultural mechanic and works for ASCO, Inc. in Bryan, Texas.


My Focus


My main focus is residential sales and I have many years of experience working with transfers with local industry, first time home buyers, move up buyers, retirees. I pride myself in selling Orange County and other areas around southeast Texas and spend hours touring potential transfers around the local area to show them what a great place Southeast Texas is to live.  I also list and sell commercial real estate, lease properties and sell unimproved land.  I have been the top agent for Orange County properties for over 10 years and pride myself in great service to customers and clients.


My Passion


Along with selling real estate full time I believe in the importance of volunteering within your local community.  I have found over the years that when you are helping others there is a wonderful feeling of accomplishment.  I work as a volunteer for the Salvation Army, Sheriff’s Department Blue Santa program, City of Orange Easter Egg Hunt, Shangri La Community Clean Up and Orange County Relay for Life.


My Work


In addition to my full time career as a REALTORI am active on the Orange County Board of Directors where I currently serve as a director and have previously served three different terms as President as well as Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.  I am a director for the Stark Foundation, founding advisor of the LCM LEO Club and current director for the Orange County Chamber of Commerce.  I am also currently serving as director of the Orange Lions Club and have previously served as President and chairman of the Orange Lions Club Charity Carnival.   I am a sustaining member of the Service League of Orange, and I serve on the Accounting Department Advisory Board for Lamar State College.


My Life


My family and I have been members of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church for many years.  My other interests include traveling, reading, working outdoors and spending time with family and friends.
