Since 2008, Maylis has been helping expat families relocating to Houston to buy or lease, and to sell their home when they have to leave. She has been honored to receive a number of awards for her outstanding level of service.
She was born in France, where she lived in the cathedral city of Amiens. Maylis then moved to Scotland (UK) to complete her university education, and gained a Bachelor of Arts and an MA in English Studies, before completing her Ph.D. in History of Art at the University of Edinburgh. She gained her real estate license when she moved to Houston with her husband in 2007.
Being an expat, she very much enjoys helping international families to settle in Houston and find the right house/apartment (for lease or for sale). She has worked in many different areas of the city and she knows the neighborhoods favored by expats inside out. Being a mother also helps her to give advice to families regarding schools, activities, and outings. She is the current president of a non-profit organization for expat spouses called Houston Expat Pro, and she also volunteers for and sponsors Houston Accueil, a French-speaking organization welcoming newcomers. Her favorite hobbies are photography and travels, either within the US or further afield. She likes reading contemporary French literature, tasting delicious pastries at her favorite cafes and relaxing at home with her husband, daughter and son, and two cats.
