Regional Vice President, Managing Broker, REALTOR®

Carol Garcia Drake Regional Vice President, Managing Broker, REALTOR®

A REALTOR® since 1999 and a broker since 2012, Carol Drake’s areas of expertise run from luxury properties and residences to farms, ranches and undeveloped acreages, especially in and around Conroe, The Woodlands, and Magnolia, where she moved in 1998.  

“Negotiation of offers and contracts are the aspects of the business I enjoy most and do extremely well,” says Carol, who brings over a decade’s experience in leadership, coaching and training to the table in every deal. She prioritizes her clients’ wants and needs, focuses on them with her deep knowledge of the market, and then proceeds with tenacity, honesty, integrity and consistency. If Carol says it,  she will do it.

Before entering the real estate field, Carol owned and operated her own gourmet food brokerage, supplying tasty treats to both small retailers and the likes of Central Market and Neiman-Marcus. In her 12 years as a fine food purveyor, she learned to handle people from all walks of life, quickly adapt to unknown situations, and fine-tune her initiative. “Both careers take a self-starter type of person who makes things happen and doesn’t wait to see if things will happen,” she says.

Carol enjoys travel, exercise, music, theater, cooking, sewing and raising cattle and horses. She speaks Spanish and has worked with the United Way’s Women Who Rock campaign, assisting young mothers who wish to further their educations. 

Carol is a founding member of the Magnolia Education Foundation and a member of The Woodlands Country Club.  Of her many accolades and achievements, she remains proudest of her children.

Stephanie Bradley REALTOR®

Northwest Houston is a great place to live and work, which is why I chose to call it home.

With roots in The Woodlands, I moved to the Northwest Houston area in 1999. My husband and I have enjoyed raising our family, being involved in our community and watching it grow over the years.  I have been in the Real Estate industry for 20 plus years and a licensed REALTOR for 10 years.  I am passionate about helping families find their next home. My background in Escrow helps me provide the best service to my clients.  In the past I have served on the board for Women's Council of REALTORS and have also served on the Education Committee through the Associations Board of REALTORS.  

 I am a family girl and craft enthusiast, when I am not working, you’ll often find me enjoying time with my family and working on one of my many craft projects.
