Angeles de Bastos, REALTOR®
Born in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, Angeles de Bastos was the eldest of four – with two brothers and one sister.
Thereafter, her family relocated to Laredo, Texas, where Angeles was raised and attended Cigarroa High School. She was in the “Top Ten” of her class. She developed a love for competition.
“As a sophomore, I was the first female to win the state championship in the 800m race for Laredo.”
Angeles still maintains that title because no one has accomplished that since her win. One week after her victory, the mayor of Laredo declared May 16 as “Angeles Pantoja Day.”
After high school, Angeles graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Texas A&M University and a Master’s Degree in Educational Psychology. While obtaining her undergrad degree, she was a Spanish and Algebra tutor. She worked with student athletes as a tutor in Business Management and Spanish during the time she was getting her Master’s Degree.
“My full-time job during my college years was being a Student Athlete. It is here where I learned perseverance, focus, discipline, responsibility and not giving up – even through the setbacks, pain and injuries of being an athlete. I often look back and think, how did I do it! However, I love flying through the finish line!”
After college, Angeles worked as an assistant Vice President in an import/export company in Laredo, Texas. Thereafter, she relocated to Oklahoma and had her first two children. Five years ago she and her family moved to Florida, and her third son was born.
As a wife to a loving Argentinian and a mother of three active boys, Angeles rarely experiences “a dull moment.”
Angeles is no stranger to relocation and the moving process. She loves offering “excellent customer service” and helping people. Real Estate was an organic career choice. It is important to her that clients trust her and refer their friends and family to her.
“Like sports, I always go the extra mile and am willing to work hard for my clients to lead them to their finish line.”
