Cody was born and raised in San Antonio and grew up surrounded by the business of buying and selling land. Born into a real estate family, Cody was in the truck showing properties from the time he could walk. At an early age, he realized he did not want to be a doctor or a lawyer, nor did he want to be indoors or behind a desk. He wanted to be out meeting people, feet in the dirt, showing and selling land in Texas.

Cody graduated from Ronald Reagan High School and immediately enrolled into the Alamo Institute for Real Estate school. He is an active outdoorsman and enjoys guiding others, whether on a fishing excursion or helping to buy or sell the perfect property.

Specializing in horse properties, farm and ranch, and residential acreage, Krystal Kotzur is a deep South Texas born-and-raised cowgirl who grew up in an oilfield family. Together, they raised cutting and calf roping quarter horses. She has been heavily involved in training and competing from an early age. After high school, she pursued her business management degree while successfully competing in professional rodeos. After a career-ending injury to her main horse, she started promoting and marketing her family’s oilfield company, thus beginning her own printing business, which she still manages. By grace, she also had the opportunity to begin her life-long dream of breeding top performing barrel racing horses. This began from her own string of horses that sent her to the top of her professional rodeo career. With their offspring, she continues to compete at rodeos and barrel races across the state.

Krystal’s love of real estate, vast knowledge of horses, and horse client needs combined with her background in business and marketing is an asset to buying and selling Texas land. If you’re looking for an agent who knows your horse property needs and can market your listing at its best, contact Krystal.
