Renee and Benjamin Danziger
We are honored to have been asked by their family to conduct the Sale of their Estate.
She, of Hungarian heritage, survived Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen, but tragically lost her mother, two younger sisters and brother. Secretly humming and singing in the camps, she credited her survival to the healing power of music and repaid this debt by working on behalf of Houston Grand Opera and Houston Symphony for the rest of her life.
He, of Orthodox Lithuanian descent, helped found what today is United Orthodox Synagogues. He held many board positions at UOS and was influential in the creation of Aishel House.
Both parents participated in many other charitable causes.
Part of the proceeds of this sale will be donated to the Holocaust Museum Houston & the Jewish Federation.

Stephanie LeAnn Geller
She spent the first 14 years of her life traversing the world with her Air Force family, then began her working life at a Waffle House in Shalimar, FL. Her career trajectory would take her from the restaurant to the boardroom, as a top Money Investment Manager,
even penning a book.
