UPDATED October 15, 2019
Two summers ago (2017) brought many firsts and exciting news for the NextHome Tropicana family. In July, we welcomed a new team member – Beverly Wilson. If you see a new face in our office or hear a new voice over the phone, that is Beverly. She brings the sweet into the home experience. Two years later, Beverly has evolved into a real estate agent serving the Killeen, Texas community with NextHome Tropicana.
Meet Beverly Wilson
Born and raised in a small town in North Carolina, Beverly knows the importance of community and hospitality. It is a place where everyone knows each other and no neighbor goes without support from others. Her twin brother, Ben, joined the Army and Beverly followed suit at the ripe age of 21.
Beverly spent her first 5 years stationed in Germany, which was an ideal transition. The people were welcoming and very friendly. Her roles in the postal office and then in personnel services tapped into her core passion – people.
Living in Killeen
Twenty-one and a half years after dedicating herself to the US Army, Beverly finally decided it was time to retire. In 2008, she chose to stay in Killeen, Texas because it had become home to her. Just like North Carolina and Germany, there were common elements to this area of Central Texas – warm and welcoming people.
After retirement, she contributed to her community by working with Killeen ISD, Goodwill Industries, as well as a Department of Army civilian for a couple of years.
Of the people in the greater Killeen area, Beverly says, “These are the friendly folks who welcome your knock on the door to borrow that cup of sugar or sit with to talk.” She especially loves her own neighborhood of Harker Heights for this reason. You can feel safe walking down the street with your kids.
Family Comes First
One of the other reasons Beverly enjoys living in the area is her family. She is married to Leo Wilson II and has three wonderful children including two grown daughters, a young son and two beautiful grandchildren. Her eldest daughter works for Enterprise Holdings, and her middle daughter recently graduated from Texas State University and is following in her sister’s footsteps by working for Enterprise Holdings too. Her son is starting the fourth grade this year.
Beverly appreciates the balance between the activities available with the city close by – Austin – and the calm of enjoying the country. She can take her son or grandchildren to the youth center in Harker Heights knowing it will be a fun and safe experience.
Working for a Purpose
If you learn nothing else about Beverly from this post, then know this – she loves people. Her purpose is to serve and support others. That is part of the reason why she chose to join the NextHome Tropicana Realty team. She was seeking an opportunity to make a difference, even in small ways, so that you can have the best experience when buying, selling, or renting a home in Killeen.
