Cary is inspired by the opportunities that technology offers and is passionate about confronting the challenges that come with it—both for Keller Williams associates and for the entire real estate industry. In her current role as the vice president of industry development, Cary works to ensure that Keller Williams is an innovative leader solving problems and driving change in the industry. Comfortable presenting in front of a group of 10 or 10,000, Cary is a certified Keller Williams University Master Faculty and can often be found sharing her knowledge and vision with the masses. She has been included in the Swanepoel Power 200, Inman News 100 Most Influential Leaders, and is an Oracle Certified Professional. As the former executive director of technology, Cary led the team that created eEdge—the industry’s first and only complete lead-to-close agent business platform which was voted most innovative platform in the real estate industry.

Cary is excited by the unlimited potential of the real estate industry and is motivated by the opportunity to help others reach their maximum potential. When not helping to revolutionizing the real estate industry, Cary can be found at the hockey rink rooting for the Texas Stars, at the Dell Diamond rooting for the Round Rock Express, or in the kitchen creating a fabulous meal for her husband, Andy, and daughter, Barbara. She and her family live in Austin, Texas.
