Star Glenda Strum


Glenda Strum grew up in the country in East Texas, graduated from Tyler High School, and danced with the Tyler Junior College Apache Belles before transferring to Baylor.  Glenda has always had boundless energy and at age 20 had graduated from Baylor, married, and was teaching first grade with a year-old son.  Her energy allowed her to combine being a mother, teaching, and selling real estate for several years before making real estate her lifetime career retiring in 2007.

Glenda has always had a passion for people and has combined her love for friends with her love for her two sons and family.  Glenda is fortunate to be enjoying former 3rd grade students and former real estate clients as longtime good friends.  Now Glenda is overloaded with civic projects paying back to the community that has been so good to her.  If not working on a project or event, she enjoys Baylor football and Baylor men's and Women's Basketball games or time with her wonderful sons, grandchildren, and countless friends as she cherishes memories of her beloved husband Stanley.
