Amber has a natural love for real estate. As a creative mind, she instinctively sees what could be in each home and empowers her clients to discover their own vision of a property’s potential. “I’ve always loved creating and telling stories. What a better story to create than one of a new beginning that starts at the front door.”
Amber shares her story about overcoming a divorce-filled childhood and her own divorce. Learn from Amber's heartfelt story as she shares the hard truth of divorce and how she has turned that pain into something meaningful to try and help others.

Scotty, a meteorologist by trade and graduate of Texas A&M University, began investing in real estate as a side venture. The personal connections he made with families through his real estate experience and his desire to help others in real estate transactions lead him to pursue real estate full-time.
Scotty and Amber are partners in work and in life and are raising a blended family of their own. Together, they have an extensive background in real estate, sales, administration, and management. The Gifford Team pride themselves in their communication skills, not only with their clients but also with each other.
Through their teamwork, they have developed a strong track record of negotiation and exhibit the utmost integrity and honesty through every step of the home buying and selling processes.
Scotty and Amber have cultivated their business approach with a vision of assisting their clients during one of the most difficult life events. They work with compassion to guide clients through the difficulty of property division and rebuilding during and after divorce. They also help clients navigate the many decisions that come with the joy of blending a family and finding the perfect home to accommodate that new chapter.
While helping clients find and sell homes is a top priority for them, Scotty and Amber are passionate about helping others through the life-changing transitions of real estate transactions. When working with clients experiencing divorce, they advise their clients with empathy and personal understanding of the strain and confusion divorce creates. They work hand-in-hand with their clients to help ease stressful life transitions while assisting them with all unknowns to preserve the homeownership eligibility and credit of both spouses.
Every client’s future is important to The Gifford Group.
