Becky began her career in title insurance in 1987 with a part time job while in college at Texas A&M University. After graduation, Becky worked in the property and casualty insurance industry as an agency training specialist before returning to her first love of real estate. As a builder’s representative for both a national builder and a custom home builder, she learned much about the “behind the walls” process. When she moved back to Texas with her family, she enjoyed a few years as a stay at home mom for her three children, who are now grown (and still her pride and joy).
Becky obtained her residential real estate salesperson license during that same time, and enjoyed sharing her career with her children, whom she jokes knew the housing market during that time better than many agents. Coming full circle, Becky returned to the title side of the industry in 2009. She has benefited greatly as an escrow officer from her vast experience with the other facets of real estate. She is able to relate to her Realtors, and most importantly, their clients, in a very personal way. Her greatest joy is guiding buyers and sellers through the process of homeownership; what she believes is still the American dream.

CFO for Small Business
Since I started my business my motto has been: I will be here when you need me.
This is the essence of my commitment to my clients. If someone trusts me I do not want to let them down. People hate insurance because they do not understand it and they think we are all a bunch of rip offs. So I built my business doing Apples to Apples comparisons because it is the only honest and straight forward way to truly see if I can save someone money. I also take a great deal of time explaining how the coverage works and empowering my clients with knowledge and confidence so that they can make informed decisions about their insurance needs
I want to be above reproach!

A little about the Founder of Instapay Services, Israel (Izzy) Zuela…
I was born and raised in a small town in northern Israel. In 2003, I had the privilege of traveling to the United States with my employer at the time. I got the opportunity to take on a leadership role in the company and was involved in opening new locations throughout the United States. After 3 years, I met my beautiful wife, Leigh-Anne! Around the same time, I made the decision of going into business for myself. The Credit Card Processing industry greatly intrigued me and I joined a local credit card processor. 3 years later, I formed my own company, known today as INSTAPAY SERVICES. I give my wife all the credit – behind every great man, there is an even greater woman!

My name is Zach Sasser. I’m a Texas native. Originally from sunny Galveston, I eventually found my way to the almost as laid back city of Austin. I spent most of my youth working on my tennis game and still have a special love for playing on a grass tennis court. More recently, my time is taken up by my spectacular fiance Kate, our two adorable cats, challenging video games, epic sci-fi/fantasy books, nerdy board games, and British murder mysteries.
I spend my work hours trying to give others the financial peace of mind that I experience every day. As a financial advisor I can get a good understanding of my clients as individuals and help direct them to behaviors and strategies that give them the best chance of financial success.
