Meet Your Rockstar
Real Estate Team
Audra was born in Houston, TX and attended The University of Houston where she majored in marketing. She got her Real Estate license in 2000, and she immediately got a $650,000 listing in the West University area. This really propelled her in the Real Estate market and she hasn't slowed down her growth in 20+ years. But Real Estate wasn't the only career she focused on along the way. In 1999, Audra and her husband Mike created and launched the Boudreaux's Cajun Kitchen Concept, growing the chain to 7 units in the Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth markets. Audra and Mike divested themselves from Boudreaux's in 2009, and decided to focus 100% of their efforts to their Real Estate business.
Audra ran the business on her own for the first few years, and then hired her first assistant in 2013. That year, she closed on over $18 million in volume. And she's been growing the team ever since. In 2021, Audra's team volume will be close to $90 million and they will have helped almost 1,300 families over the last 10 years with their Real Estate needs. Audra and Mike believe that there are two secrets to running an amazing team. First, hire the right people with the same high standards and expectations. Second, always consider the needs of the client first, and exceed their expectations through exceptional service and knowledge.
Mike was born and raised in Texas and attended The University of Texas at Austin where he was at the top of his class earning his BBA in Finance. After graduating, he held various finance and accounting positions for about 10 years. Mike, along with his wife Audra, created and launched the Boudreaux's Cajun Kitchen concept, growing the chain to 7 units in Houston and the Dallas/Fort Worth areas. They divested themselves from the chain in 2009. When Audra focused on the real estate business in 2010, he became a Mortgage Loan Originator, and worked in the mortgage industry for several years. In 2015, he gave up the mortgage business, and joined Audra in growing The Audra O'Neal Team. Mike's focus on the team is more administrative, focusing on accounting, budgets, models, payroll, and human resources.

Sammy, a native Texan, grew up in the Katy area. Initially Sammy found himself a niche working with realtors to help their clients get their homes ready to go on the market. His excellent work in roofing and general contracting eventually opened the door to his career in real estate. He came to the realization that despite how much he enjoyed helping people with their projects he really wanted to focus more on the real estate side of the business. Sammy wanted to assist people in finding their dream home.
