"Karen Frakes shines as a Realtor, and I highly recommend her! My home sale and purchase went smoothly, especially because Karen always kept her cool and made excellent suggestions. Karen knows the market and the trends and constantly thinks about ways to maximize the asset of your home. She helped me with staging my house and made it look fantastic. My sale and purchase were emotional ones for me, but Karen always made me feel understood while also always helping me keep my focus on my overall goals. I'm so grateful I had Karen through this entire process." - Amanda

"Karen Frakes is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. My wife Jan and I have moved all over the country while my career at Hilton has grown, purchasing houses in 6 states. I asked her to communicate specifically through email as I travel extensively out of the USA and she honored that from the start. She always followed up when she said she would; she listened to what we told her we wanted and gave us exactly the types of houses we were interested in. To say she is the consummate professional real estate agent would almost be an understatement. Karen really and truly went above and beyond to make sure we found a great home and then saw it through to closing. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone looking for a professional who works hard for you as the client and always keeps your best interests in mind." - John

"Karen did a fantastic job; 5 Star Rating. She had the patience to bear with me on three different transactions; the first two went bust. I'm not an easy person to deal with since as an engineer, I dig into the details and try to do my due diligence. Karen hung in there with me. She has a heart of gold besides being a terrific agent. I'll take her anytime on any transaction. I will close tomorrow on my home in La Vernia, TX near San Antonio. Karen will even help me pick-up a 2nd vehicle that I own and obviously can't leave behind. That's going above and beyond the call of duty. I wish my agent for the La Vernia sale was half as good as Karen. She definitely earned her commission, and even helped me with that too! Karen is a super person besides a valuable resource to your company. She's presently looking for a lot in, or near, Dripping Springs for me to buy and eventually build. I've been fortunate to have owned some pretty nice custom homes in the past." - Michael

"When Sid and I decided to look for a home in the Dripping Springs/Driftwood area, we wanted to find a Realtor who was knowledgeable and worked in the Dripping Springs market. We met Karen Frakes at an open house she was hosting, and because of her pleasant personality and knowledge of the area, we decided to engage her as our buyer's agent. Karen listened to our specific needs and desires and was very conscientious in finding appropriate properties for us to view. During the entire process of looking for our new home, Karen was so helpful in many different ways; when we wanted information on a property, she made sure we were supplied with the information that day. It was such a pleasure to work with Karen, and we would not hesitate to recommend her to others who would need a professional agent. Karen made the whole transaction process easy and very stress-free. Not an easy thing to do when buying a house! We are very thankful we met Karen and are so appreciative of all the hard work she did to make the buying of our home as pleasant as possible." - Marie and Sid
