Hector Alaniz


I am a native of the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. I graduated from San Antonio College with an Associate’s Degree in Mortuary Science. Since 1984, I have been in the service industry providing support and guidance to families during some of the most difficult times of their lives. In 2004, I moved to Laredo to begin a new career in the healthcare industry. In 2007, I started Laredo Hospice Care, where together with a dedicated team of professionals, we assisted many patients and families dealing with a terminal illness. I sold Laredo Hospice Care in 2012 to Altus Hospice of South Texas where I hold a consulting role. My wife, Sandra Mendiola Alaniz is an experienced Realtor since 2005 and received her brokers license in 2012 when we opened the RE/MAX real estate franchise in Laredo. In June 2016, I joined our RE/MAX team in Laredo as Director of Operations to assist in our rapid growth. Although recently licensed, I have over 25 years experience in business management and business ownership. RE/MAX of Laredo has become one of the fastest growing real estate office in Laredo and we have received the People’s Choice award from Laredo Morning Times in 2015 and 2016. I am a member of Laredo Gateway Rotary Club, a member of the Small Business Committee in the Laredo Chamber of Commerce, a former member and officer of the Elks Lodge in Corpus Christi and San Antonio, former member of Founder Lions Club in San Antonio, and former member of Leon Valley Chamber of Commerce. I am also an avid golfer and enjoy spending time with family and friends. My wife and I have three dogs, Winston, Sammy, and Anika and we love to support local charities.

The thing I love most about my career is that I am able to be a part of a dream that each client has in becoming a home owner.  I truly enjoy the journey with each one!  I love that from every deal, I have become life-long friends with those that I have worked with.  This is a focus of all my business and my lifestyle.  I am relationship driven.  Always looking to what is best for each person I work with, truly believing that everyone deserves the opportunity to fulfill their dreams in real estate. I have been in real estate for 4 years, following a career in customer services since 2001.  I am a REALTOR® with GRI and MRP designations.  I specialize in residential, commercial and land.  My favorite things in the world to do are to be with my 2 kids and one grandson and plant flowers in my backyard.  I enjoy playing karaoke with my kids and love my native city of Laredo.  I look forward to helping you with your next real estate deal!

Melissa Hale


I’ve always had a passion for real estate, even though it wasn’t my first career. When buying my first home, I found that my Realtor was not explaining the process to me and only wanted to contract as soon as possible. That’s when I began to think about real estate as a career. I didn’t want others to go through the same thing I went through when I was buying my home. Working as a Paralegal for over 20 years I had a second chance to “reboot” my career, and real estate was the natural choice. Today, I’m an experienced agent serving buyers and sellers and making sure my clients are informed in the process. My legal background has made me a better agent as I pay more attention to details and contracts, therefore making the process of purchasing/selling a home come natural to me.

Buying or selling a home can be exciting. But it can also be stressful. It’s particularly stressful for first-timers and those who have a short time line. I know this firsthand, because I’ve been there myself. That’s why I work extra hard to keep my clients informed, and to make the process as smooth as possible.

Naomi Laughlin


How I came into this business is very interesting. I want to tell you a little something about myself explaining how I came into the real estate industry which I passionately love to do every day of my life. Life seemed about eight years ago. I was working with special needs children in Eagle Pass, Texas. I was married with one child in high school. After the passing of my husband 20 years, I decided to move back to my hometown of Laredo, Texas. Of course, I had to wait till my son finished his senior year.
I seemed lost for a bit wondering what the next step in life was going to be. One thing I realized is that I love interacting with people in some way. I am definitely a people person. my sister was a real estate broker with years of experience and knowledge, so I thought this field would be a perfect match. Coming back home after fifteen years away to the hometown that I loved so much inspired me to help others make Laredo their home also.
Since 2013 I have been in this industry. I have acquired a vast knowledge of the homes in my area. I am passionate to help my clients make the biggest lifetime decision they will probably make in their lives. I will make the transaction as smooth for you and at the same time exciting and fulfilling. I will bring my expertise in marketing your home or steps to acquiring your future home. Contact me today and let me give you a complete guide to accomplish your goals whether it be to be buying, selling, or leasing a home or commercial property.
