HOW SHE ARRIVED IN EAST TEXAS
Amy Turman was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. She attended Highland Park High School and graduated from Texas Christian University's Schieffer School of Journalism.
Before starting a family, Amy was an associate editor at D Magazine and Editor-in-Chief at Fort Worth, Texas magazine. Once it was revealed that she and her husband, Philip, would be expecting their firstborn, Amy made the difficult decision to hang up her writing hat and dedicate herself to being a stay-at-home mother. Almost six years later, she was ready to re-enter the workforce ... this time as a real estate agent.
Growing up as the daughter of a commercial real estate broker, Amy spent her weekends driving the family Suburban across property for sale as her father examined its viability. Soon after, her father was schooling her on telecommunication towers, shopping centers and other investment properties. Her mother, who is equally real estate savvy, would bring Amy along as she evaluated the move-in and move-out condition of several lease properties in Dallas. There was no getting around it; a passion for real estate was so tightly woven into her fiber that it seemed impossible to unravel it.
Amy intends to use that passion and excitement for real estate to help her clients navigate the home-buying process and to make it an enjoyable experience. She doesn't want to just represent her clients; she wants to help them be better educated buyers and sellers. Her time as an editor not only constructed an eagle eye for detail, but also experience in marketing and advertising that is invaluable to sellers. Her marketing efforts are unrivaled in East Texas.
