Robyn Eastman is an early bird. Lanae Humbles is a night owl. Together they’ve realized success by playing on each woman’s strengths and undertaking the aspects of the business that most brings them joy. Lanae, for instance, has a keen understanding of Texas Real Estate contracts and forms and is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert, liaising with lenders, title companies, and other agents, facilitating smooth transactions for clients. Robyn enjoys being the face of Twenty-Two Realty, spending her days showing homes to potential buyers and researching the more difficult questions they have about properties and surrounding communities. Robyn and Lanae are also savvy marketers with over 20 years of graphic design experience and an innovative eye for marketing homes. It’s been a winning combination for Twenty-Two Realty.
“Doing what we each love keeps our attitudes positive and prevents burn out,” Robyn said. “We’re also careful to maintain a good work/life balance. We love our jobs, but real estate is at its heart a customer service business and customer service can be demanding. We want to keep our spirits high and our clients feeling loved and appreciated. For us, task division and work/life balance are the keys to happiness and success.”
Lanae was a natural-born entrepreneur, selling her drawings to church members at age six (for money her mom made her quickly return, when she caught wind of it) and setting up pay-to-play carnivals for her little friends. Robyn first delved into business ownership with The Little Gym of Arlington/Mansfield, a successful children’s gymnastics and motor skill development facility. When the two ventured into real estate, they quickly found success. During their first ten years as REALTORS®, they have earned many top honors including Rookie of the Year and Fleetwood Newberry Meritorious Service Award at Arlington Board of REALTORS®, and Centurion Team, President’s Team, Quality Service Pinnacle Team, Dene Fite Quality Service Award and #1 Team at CENTURY 21 Judge Fite Company.
Now, on their own as brokers at Twenty-Two Realty, they’re applying 40+ years of combined business and customer service experience with their extensive real estate knowledge and in-depth understanding of the local market to help families buy and sell the largest possession most of them will ever own, their home. Both women give unselfishly of themselves, not only to their clients and families (combined, they have nine children!) but at local nursing homes, where for ten years they’ve played bingo with residents. Both women have served in leadership roles at Arlington Board of REALTORS® where Robyn is currently the Secretary/Treasurer and will be Chairman of the Board in 2023. Lanae is busy helping the Church on Rush Creek launch a new campus in her hometown of Midlothian and serves as the Capital Improvements Director of her HOA. They have been involved in numerous other local community leadership and service organizations including Leadership Arlington, Leadership Mansfield, Mansfield Citizens Police Academy, Midlothian Citizens Police Academy, Mansfield Citizens Fire Academy and Mansfield Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassador to name a few.
“Our vision for Twenty-Two Realty is that of integrity, value, service, philanthropy—and fun,” Lanae said. “Real estate should never be one-size-fits-all. We customize the process for each unique client and have a dream of expanding our brand to include 22 offices across the Metroplex to serve even more families.”
