Before she entered real estate, Kayla attended the University of Houston-Downtown studying chemistry and biology before opening and later selling her own business.

The diversity that characterizes her hometown means there’s always something new and interesting to do, and she enjoys meeting new people from different walks of life.

Like his favorite neighborhood EaDo, Keaon Hobson is drawn to the eclectic nature of his native Houston, from the businesses to the entertainment to the people to the food. The mix of historical communities and newer builds all over the city make it one of the most excit ing times to buy a new home, and as the market continues to energize and reshape the city he is dedicated to helping his clients secure and enjoy the next chapter of their lives. His background in finance gives Keaon unique insight into the investment aspects of the home buying process, and he uses those skills to find properties that will grow with his clients.

Keaon came to the City of Houston when he was 10 years old, growing up in Bellaire and graduating from St. Pius. He attended Bryant University in Rhode Island on a full football scholarship, but decided he preferred academics to flag patterns and gave it up to pursue economics at the University of Houston. Before coming to Carnan, he was in energy investment banking, served as Captain at the award-winning restaurant Pass & Provisions, and was the bourbon steward- aka whiskey sommelier- at the Four Seasons. In his free time, you can find Keaon enjoying a fine meal, attending spirit tastings, or challenging himself with active outdoor experiences.
