Raising two children in the world of luxury real estate has its challenges, but Nancy Almodovar, President and CEO of Nan and Company Properties, has made it look easy. Along with her husband Jose, she has embraced family life, along with everything that comes along with being one of the top residential real estate companies in Houston. For Almodovar, all the awards and accolades don’t compare to what matters most in her life – her family. We asked her children, Manny and Kamila, to share what they are most grateful for this year.
