On Thanksgiving of 1988, I made one of the best decisions of my life. I moved to Horseshoe Bay and began my real estate career. The company I joined , Horseshoe Bay Corp, was founded by Wayne Hurd, who developed Horseshoe Bay with his cousin, Norman, and remains active today. I primarily sell and specialize in Horseshoe Bay, but I sell anywhere within the Highland Lakes chain. I have been privileged to work with some of the best builders in Horseshoe Bay. Since m aterials and styles are ever–changing, this has helped me stay on the cutting edge of market trends. This "Hill Country" market is very excitin g and requires a 24/7 commitment to keep up with what's here today and planned for the future. I would like to thank my clients for their friendship and loyalt y.

After 21 years, the best is yet to come!!

Real Estate has been my life for the past thirty–five years, the last thirty of this period have been spent at Horseshoe Bay. How lucky can you get! I was working as a realtor in Corpus Christi for a land development company when I got a call to come to work in Horseshoe Bay. At first I resisted, since I had gotten very comfortable in Corpus; however, the calling persisted and finally I was picked up by plane – I could not resist! Upon landing at the Horseshoe Bay Airport, I was totally surprised by the topography of the land: hills, trees and water – it reminded me of the landscape I had left behind in Germany. Being used to the sandy dunes of Padre Island, I did not know Texas had a Hill Country and I was very impressed! Of course, I switched jobs; In the process I totally overlooked the fact that there were only 73 permanent inhabitants in Horseshoe Bay – quite in contrast to Corpus Christi! Well, needless to say I was very lonesome and decided to buy a bottle of wine to assuage my pain. Surely, this was one of the situations which drives one to drink. Imagine my surprise to find Marble Falls to be in a dry county and no wine was to be found anywhere (it isn't any more thank goodness!) There had to be another solution and it came in the form of tennis. I hadn't played since I left Europe, but I was brave enough to give it a try. I am glad I did, and to this day tennis is my favorite leisure time activity. Well, that is not quite right: my favorite activity is real estate and I hope it will remain so for a long time to come!

Judy McAlister

Phone: (830) 798-4667

I have been active in the real estate business in the Highland Lakes area since I moved here in 1997. A native of New Mexico, my real estate roots developed from being part of a real estate family. My mother and father had their own real estate business which involved many real estate discussions around the dinner table, where my fascination with the business began. I graduated from Eastern New Mexico University with a Bachelor degree in business and real estate. After graduation, I received my real estate broker’s license in New Mexico and have never had an interest in any other field.

I have three grown sons and love living, promoting and being part of this community. I raised my family in a waterfront home on Lake LBJ and specialize in Lake LBJ waterfront properties as well as properties in the surrounding communities.
