Christie Stephens

Real Estate Agent, GRI


I'm a Waco native and have been married to my husband Darrell for 30+ years, we have 3 grown children. I stayed at home with my kids until they were through elementary school and then opened a screen printing/embroidery business, which I sold after 10 years and it still serves the Lorena community to this day. I then worked as a paralegal for a national law firm here in Waco for several years until I decided to put my dream of being a realtor first. I've always wanted to be a realtor and once the kids were grown it felt like the right time. I love people and have loved helping them transition into their next phase of life. First home, second home, downsizing, retiring, investment portfolio.....I understand and love it all!

Eddie Montano

Real Estate Agent


Eddie is passionate about his faith, wife, family, and the Dallas Cowboys! Real estate runs in his blood- ask him about it! With the luster of the Texas country, Eddie and his wife felt led to relocate from their lifetime in the arid deserts of Arizona, to the lush meadows and water surrounding beautiful Waco. But first, after marrying his sweetheart in 2005, he worked some unique jobs. Including working football at the high school, collegiate, and NFL levels! In 2009, he got his first taste working in real estate. That year, Eddie delved into property management when he joined a non-profit organization geared to providing family housing resources. Eddie quickly learned, moving up the ranks throughout different roles, from on-property leasing and management to leading a non-profit corporate office program. In this 501c3 organization, he supervised the federally funded government program (NSP II) designed to improve the real estate market in Southern Arizona from the effects of the recession. In 2013 he switched to real estate sales and proudly became a licensed REALTOR®? in Arizona! Eddie worked hard for his clients and didn’t skip a beat: as soon as he was eligible, he obtained his Arizona Broker’s license in 2016. Soon after, he received the opportunity of starting and co-owning a brokerage serving Tucson, Phoenix, and their surrounding areas. Throughout those years, Eddie oversaw the day-to-day operations of the brokerage and agents. Now that he and his lovely wife get to call Waco their home, Eddie is excited to share his experience, knowledge, and creativity to help present and future Wacoans find and sell their homes in the area. Eddie has a strong track record of protecting and promoting his clients’ best interests; it is his highest priority. His past clients will quickly tell you their favorite days are when they closed on their homes and when he delivers his famous homemade salsa each year! Seriously ask about it! When he’s not helping clients with their real estate needs, Eddie is found enjoying life over a new movie, good food, time at the lake, and cheering on the Dallas Cowboys!

Megan Romero

Real Estate Agent, GRI


I currently reside in Hewitt, TX with my wonderful husband for the past 9 years. We love to be outdoors and enjoy taking our dogs for a walk, camping, and going to events around Waco. Traveling and seeing the world is also something I love to do! After growing up in the hill country I graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos with a degree in Communication Design. For the first few years of living in Waco, I worked as a graphic designer for a sign company but grew to find out that wasn’t my passion. While working at Magnolia Market at the Silos I studied to get my real estate license because I wanted to pursue a career in helping people buy and sell homes. After getting my license in 2018, I started working at Magnolia Realty. It felt like my true calling. I love helping my clients find their dream home and being a part of their adventure to make the move to Waco and surrounding areas, sell their current home, or invest. No interaction is ever the same so it makes for a lively and enjoyable time with everyone I meet and serve. I look forward to assisting you in your real estate adventure of buying, selling, or investing!

Michelle Gonzalez

Real Estate Agent


As a Military career “Brat” my family moved all over the U.S. I was excited to see what our new home looked like and what kind of people I would meet on this journey. At 4 years old I headed to the neighbors to introduce myself and my family as the “new neighbors on the block” and how my Mom was decorating our new home. While my parents were unloading boxes and placing furniture, I was making friends and setting appointments with the kids on the block for a picnic of bologna sandwiches, popsicles and a “tour” of our new home while pointing out my Mom’s natural ability to turn base housing into a mansion…in my eyes at least. Naturally, people and homes became a focal point for me. Throughout the years my career involved people and business and finding the perfect house or business site to start a new adventure. Whether I was recruiting business or Tourism Development for the Round Rock Chamber of Commerce or a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones helping a young couple save for the down payment of their first home, people…and helping people realize their dreams has been a passion of mine throughout the years. Let me help you find that perfect home, second home or vacation home. It’s my passion!

Ted Gonzalez

Real Estate Agent


As a Waco native, and a seasoned real estate professional, I recognize and value the trust my clients place in me that makes me strive to exceed their expectations. I help my clients navigate the often challenging waters of the home buying process. I believe that your home is your sanctuary, and it should be treated as such. Whether you're buying you're first home or seeking that dream residence, the experience should be nothing less then seamless. Prior to entering the real estate profession I helped run a family restaurant business my parents started over 50 years ago that still serves Waco and the surrounding areas today. The restaurant experience instilled in me the discipline it takes to build a successful business. Customer service is in my DNA. My passion for real estate comes from design, constantly doodling being intrigued by the possibilities of change and wondering.....what if. I designed my own house and was fortunate to see it come into fruition. Every individual has a style or look that there wanting to create. Whether it be new construction or old, the right property can change somebody's world. I understand that your home is more than just a place to live - it's where you make long - lasting memories.
