Hey there, my name is Vanessa and I have been a licensed real estate agent since 2016. Just a little bit about me, I am married to Douglas M. Pleban of Chesapeake, Virginia.

We have 4 furbaby daughters, Lacy is a 13 year old dachshund, Lexi is a 9 year old Boston Terrier, LuLu is a 7 year old Boston Terrier Mix, and Dory is a 2 year old Pitbull/Lab Mix. I have been in the Central Texas Area since 2005 and We are both avid animal lovers. I have two younger siblings; my sister Alicia is currently serving in the U.S Air Force and is stationed at AFB Langley.
