"I cannot say enough good things about Tawnya McKinney with Port Aransas Realty. She worked with me for about 16 months until we found the right condo for me. I lost count of how many condos we looked at. I was very particular about what I wanted. Most realtors would probably have lost patience with me, but not Tawnya. She was very patient with me and just kept saying "We're gonna find one that's just right for you. Don't give up." She was always upbeat and encouraging and was always a text or a phone call away when I needed advice or information. I LOVE my new condo, but I'm going to miss Tawnya."
I decided to become a Realtor over seven years ago. I was motivated to change careers after talking with many of my family members who were realtors and hearing their stories of helping people to make a positive change in their lives. Before my real estate career, I was an insurance agent for over 20 years. In both of these professions, the chance to help people fulfill their goals has been its own reward.
I’m proud to say that I am a native Texan, growing up in the suburbs of Dallas. A graduate of Cedar Hill High School, I earned my Associate’s Degree from Mountain View College and ultimately attended the University of Texas at Arlington. I lived in the Dallas area until the spring of 2012, but my parents and I have vacationed in the Padre/Corpus/Port Aransas area since I was a few months old.
I have loved Port Aransas since the beginning, spending many summers exploring the area leading to my love of swimming, kayaking, boating, fishing, beachcombing, and, of course, real estate. I love selling real estate here on the island. It’s a perfect fit for me. I’d love to find the perfect fit for you.
