Mother White was recently appointed to the Multiple Listing Service Advisory Board with the Houston Association of Realtors. The primary responsibility of this board is to establish and maintain policy that is in the best interest of its 40,000+ membership. Mother White is also a co-host of the greater Houston area real estate show, Red Door Conversations.

In her spare time, she enjoys watching documentaries, traveling, and online retail therapy. She especially enjoys spending time with her daughters Kendal (12), Kadence (7) and her loving husband of 18 years, Kevin.
One of Mother White's favorite books is The Greatest Salesman In The World by Og Mandino. It is a book comprised of 10 principles or scrolls. Of those 10 scrolls her favorite are 3 - I will persist until I succeed, 6 - I will be the master of my emotions, 9 - I will act now and 10 - You must pray to a higher power other than yourself. These are principles that Mother White lives by daily. Mother White, thank you for all that you have done and continue to do for the South Belt Houston Chapter!
