We had the good fortune of connecting with Brynn Langford and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brynn, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” -Theodore Roosevelt

Brené Brown introduced me to this quote, and it has changed my life as it did hers. I spent my early adulthood in LA pursuing a career in the Film & TV industry, and I lived my days in constant fear of defeat and of failure…so much so that I held back from daring to do most of what others felt I could achieve. I heard this quote for the first time in a chapter of my life when I felt extremely lost: afraid to give up what I’d stubbornly chosen to pursue at 15 years old and admit my next chapter of a new career might be even better. It sounds hilarious to me now that I felt safer in an industry FULL of risks, of known rejection, and uphill challenges, but it had been all I’d ever known. And I was TERRIFIED of the ridicule of pursuing something new…I was terrified of feeling like I was “giving up.”

Reading Brené’s book, Daring Greatly, gave me the courage spark I was desperately seeking to push past the fear of failing and run into the arena. And I’ll tell you something: My face HAS been marred by dust and sweat and blood, but I know GREAT enthusiasms and GREAT devotions. And I’m my fullest self now, far more than I ever was watching my life from outside the arena.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I LOVE this business, y’all. I was sure I’d never find something I love as much as the Entertainment Industry, and I’m so glad I was wrong. I take immense pride in what I do, and I don’t take the process of helping someone with such a large milestone as buying a home lightly. You will never find me going half-speed, because my clients deserve to feel like each of them are my only clients. I also have an absolute zest for life, and one of my super powers is making people feel included and heard, because I genuinely believe everyone deserves that. I’m encouraging in the stressful moments and go to bat for my clients when the time calls for it.

Through my time in Real Estate I’ve learned that many things happen completely out of your control. Deals can fall apart at no fault to my clients or my own. What matters is how one responds. A mentor in my last career once told me that ‘Feelings are never wrong, but actions can be,’ and I always make sure I put my client’s needs before my emotions. For me, the experience is never about anyone but my client, and how I handle my business reflects that.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Oooo I love this! Ok, a long day/evening in The Woodlands:

Grab a coffee and sausage roll for breakfast at Third Gen Coffee, and then head to Snooze for brunch!
After brunch grab a swan boat at the Waterway’s Riva Row Boat House to take a lap around Lake Woodlands. For lunch, be sure to check out a staple of The Woodlands, Crust Pizza. They have awesome personal size pizzas and delicious salads!
In the afternoon, get a little shopping done at The Woodlands Mall, or if you have kiddos, Play Street Museum in East Shore is a must. Finish off at State Fare for dinner – The chicken fried steak and cinnamon Old Fashioned are both FABULOUS!
Take a walk around Hughes Landing or walk along the Waterway before heading home. I hope you’ve had a fabulous day living in The Woodlands. Let me know if you want to make it a permanent move!! ha!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My husband deserves the largest shoutout. We’ve been together for nearly nine years, and there are times he knows me better than I know myself. For example, it was my husband, Logan, that suggested I look into becoming a Realtor. I was sure he didn’t know what he was talking about, but I quickly learned he knew a thing or two about a thing or two. Logan is encouraging and supportive in every sense of the word. He’s more patient than an elderly golden retriever, and he’s absolutely the funnier of the two of us, so he keeps me in constant giggles.

My parents are also two people that encouraged me to always chase after what I wanted, and I wouldn’t have the guts I have without their guidance. They taught me that I can be a high achiever and not lose being kind and giving to others. That’s massive.
