During her free time you'll often find her rescuing abandoned and abused animals making sure they are bathed, fed, loved, and ready to find a more permanent home.
Moving to Rockport, Texas to embark on a new adventure she immediately fell in love with Rockport-Fulton's gorgeous surroundings and charm. Starting her residency here she assisted in opening Chili's in Rockport and worked as a Server/Bartender for three years before moving back to Virginia working as a Chili's manager and then in Property Inspections and Real Estate. Missing Rockport's "small town feel with a giant heart" she decided to move back. Since her return to this lovely town she has worked in Vacation Rental Management, has cleaned numerous properties, and since 2015 she has worked alongside Alissa Spears. Once settled into the position alongside Alissa she knew she did not want to work anywhere else. Alina loves the Real Estate industry and appreciates that no two days are alike. There is also a thrill knowing that there is always an opportunity to learn something new, but that she is also able to provide help with the knowledge she has already acquired over her expansive career.
If you ask Alina if she plans to ever become a REALTOR® her answer will always remain the same, "While I believe being a REALTOR® is both rewarding and exciting, I prefer to work behind the scenes assisting in the management of the Company. That's where my expertise lie and that's my passion."

Andrew decided at a young age that real estate was how he wanted to make his way in life. In 2006 after having been a successful REALTOR® for two years, he qualified to take the Texas Real Estate Brokers exam. Then at the age of 23, Andrew took and passed the exam the first time around; making him the 3rd youngest Broker in the state of Texas at that time.
Having bought and sold many properties himself, he knows what it's like to be a first-time home-buyer, a move up home-buyer, an investor, a re-modeler, a home flipper and a landlord. Living in the Texas Coastal Bend his entire life gives him a great deal of knowledge about the area. Being not only a Homeowner, but a Real Estate investor gives Andrew the unique ability to understand the mindset of buyers and sellers at various stages in the process.
“I can remember the feelings I had when buying my first home. I can remember the fear that perhaps I was over-committing myself or buying the wrong house or at the wrong time. However, it worked out great. I lived in that house for 13 years—the last 9 years there were with my beautiful girlfriend, Kristie, and the last 8 years were with our wonderful dog, Sox. Eventually, I sold it, making a $60,000+ gain in the process. Furthermore, I paid NO federal tax on this gain due to a favorable tax law for homeowners. It was the equity that built up from this first house that gave me the confidence and the financial foundation to buy properties for investment and ultimately, to buy the wonderful house in Rockport, TX where we live in now!”
Thinking back on it, I would have to say that getting my Real Estate license back in 2003 was the best decision I could have made. It's been such a fun journey and it’s given me so many opportunities both personally and professionally. I hope if you are considering a real estate transaction in the Coastal Bend area that you will give me a chance to earn your business.”
