Anel I. Flores

I’m blessed to call one of these ladies my friend. Anel I. Flores has an ‘I can do anything’ kind of attitude and that comes with a side of ‘I’m going to help you do your anything, too.’ I’ve watched her grow and develop a real estate business as she shares her clients’ successes with colorful words to create the beginning of their story in their new home. Yes, she is creative. Anel is also a successful writer and artist. Her love for helping others and her love for this great city of ours comes shining through her work.

I asked her why she was willing to share a part of herself and her story at this event.

“The work that ACCION is doing for San Antonio and Texas is remarkable! I love that their doors are open to everyone with the drive, dream and desire to an independent business owner. When I have reached out to them for guidance on running my business they always make me feel welcome, and I walk away learning a lot! Their team, especially their amazing women, inspire me everyday and I am honored to speak at their event and further with my amazing colleagues!”
