"I’ve been involved with sports, farming and the outdoors all my life. I’ve traveled many parts of the world including the Caribbean, Australia, Japan, Alaska and Spain. Whether you are looking for a fishing trip, trying to catch a sports game or just looking to kick back and relax, I can show you options designed to fit your taste and budget.”


Mrs. Karen wells, agent

Being a fourth generation in a family that served the public and community of Cleburne since the late 1800’s, I’ve learned that customer service is number one.  My experience ranges from being a flight attendant for Braniff to working in real estate and insurance.  My husband and I currently have a bed and breakfast in Glen Rose, TX.  When we’re not working we travel as much as possible.  We’ve played golf in St. Andrews, fished in Alaska and relaxed in Key West with friends as well as visiting many other wonderful places.

I’d be happy to help you check off destinations on your bucket list at the most affordable price and taking care of all the details making your travel stress-free.
