Pursuit of the American Dream

Educationally, Cleopatra holds a Bachelor of Arts degree (Magna cum Laude) and a Master of Arts degree from University of California, Los Angeles and was a recipient of the Artist Degree program at University of Southern California’s scholarship program. Born and raised in Bucharest, Romania during the communist regime era, Cleo has always dreamed of a free life. Her mother envisioned her daughter’s escape through an international music career—a path that would eventually lead Cleo to the US. Cleo’s international music career took her on tours, garnered her accolades in international competitions, earned her an invitation to sing for Mother Teresa, and appointed her as the Romanian Cultural Youth Ambassador to the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta. It was during this pivotal experience in Atlanta that Cleo realized her heart belonged in the United States, where she aspired to build her life and raise a family.

In 1999, Cleo embarked on the pursuit of the American dream. Armed with her flute and a bag filled with dreams, she left her family in Romania and moved to Los Angeles at 19 years old. Fast forward to today, Cleo has built a career as a professional classical musician, became an educator, founded Tyson Music Academy in McLean Virginia, and branched out into apparel design and corporate operations in the fine jewelry design sector. She was the first employee of JudeFrances Jewelry and became the Director of Personnel and National Department Stores Executive. She worked to help build the household name for over ten years. In 2006, she founded Valahian Queens, an all US-made fine leather and semi-precious metals accessories brand which was sold by Nordstrom flagship stores, Nordstrom Online, as well as international boutiques in Europe and Asia.

Balancing Family and Dreams

As a loving wife to a dedicated law enforcement official whose career has moved the family to various US posts and overseas assignments, Cleo is dedicating herself to raising two exceptional boys and finding tremendous joy in discovering new opportunities through the family’s eclectic lifestyle. In 2020, the Talos family settled in Fair Oaks Ranch where Cleo decided to finally pursue a lifelong dream: enter the real estate profession. Cleo’s firsthand experience of being a local resident and mother of Boerne ISD students underscores the incredible lifestyle that families can enjoy in her community, and her expertise allows her to navigate the highly competitive local real estate market with finesse.

Active Engagement in Community and Profession

Community engagement, stewardship, and active participation in professional organizations are integral aspects of Cleo’s life. Since 2022 Cleo has served on the San Antonio Board of Realtors Glogal Business Committee, The Military Advisory Group and the San Antonio Commercial Real Estate Women’s Association Communication Committee. Additionally, she is appointed on the Board of Directors for the Hill Country Youth Orchestra and is a passionate advocate for local charities through her involvement with The 100 Women of the Hill Country Organization.

Beyond Real Estate

Beyond real estate, Cleopatra finds joy in making music, song writing, soaking up every second of being a soccer and football mama, making friends and loving life. From conducting master classes and offering free music clinics, playing recreational tennis, and enjoying the true Texas Hill Country lifestyle, she exemplifies a multi-faceted professional deeply committed to both community and personal passions.
