Frank West

REALTOR®

Originally born in San Antonio, Frank spent much of his youth moving around the USA from New York to Minnesota and finally Southern California where he started his Real Estate Career in Los Angeles in 2004.  In Los Angeles, he was a top producing, multi-million dollar agent, selling both Residential and Commercial real estate.  When the market began to decline, he became an expert in foreclosures and short-sales.  He returned to Texas when he moved his family to Austin in 2008. In his time here in Austin, his business has grown quickly – in large part to the referrals from his amazing (and happy) past clients.  Because of his own personal experience in relocating to the Austin area, Frank is especially well-equipped to help those who are looking to make Austin their new home!  While he specializes in the Lake Travis areas, he services all parts of Austin, having helped people find and sell homes from Round Rock and Cedar Park to Dripping Springs, S Austin, and beyond.
 
As an Investment Specialist, Frank works with in-town and out-of-state investors who have nicknamed him “Mr. Equity”, as he places high standards on the cash-flow properties he presents to his clients.  Many of his investor clients have well planned retirement scenarios involving their cash flowing properties.   If you are looking for an investment, right now is Kiyosaki time!  Homes are priced the lowest they have been in years.  Interest rates are at or near all time lows and low vacancy rates are pushing up rents.  It is the perfect storm for investors.
 
Whether your goal is to sell your home, buy a new home or invest for your future, Frank can help!  Please check out his testimonials to hear about the experiences his clients have had with him, many of whom have become Frank’s good friends and repeat clients.  When he’s not taking excellent care of his real estate clients, you will find Frank spending time with his beautiful wife and daughter, and coaching his 5-year-old son’s tee ball and flag football teams.  Frank also enjoys volunteering in the community and at his church.
 
Choosing a Realtor who has the tools, skills and experience to help you make well informed Real Estate decisions can be as challenging as the Home Buying Process itself.  Allow Frank to make it easier for you!

HE WAS THE BEST!! He went above and beyond. Frank is very intelligent, and I have to say he knows this business. He kept me in a positive frame of mind when I felt like "mean mugging" and was at the end of my rope during the loan process, appraisal and haggling over the price of the home. He did my walk, even though I was not available. Frank is all around a good person.

Frank West at Realty Austin is exceptional at his job. His attention to detail, his ability to take charge and most important, his knowledge of the market in the Lakeway, Cedar Park, and Leander areas are above what anyone could expect. Our purchase was seamless because of Frank. I look forward to working with him again in the near term.

Frank West has literally gone WAY above and beyond for us. We put him through the ringer. We constantly changed our minds, pulled out of deals just waiting for the right buy. He was extremely patient and was able to help us close on a home this week! After we requested a chance to see the lake, he asked one of his buddy's to take us out on the boat and it was amazing! Since we are out in CA, he was nice enough to mow our new lawn in order to show the property this week. Not something you would expect out of an agent. Can honestly say we not only have an agent, but a great new friend for sure.

Over the years, I’ve learned a few lessons that turn out to have changed my life. When I chose Frank West as my Realtor to sell my house, I knew it was true - when you choose to work with someone, especially as important as a Realtor you will depend on, it is smart not to pick the one who dazzles you the first time, but to choose the one who lets you know he is good, steady, and will stick with you for the long run. I knew the first time I met frank how steady and reliable and loyal he was and the longer I knew Frank, and the more that problems that occurred with the house I was trying to sell (repairs needed unexpectedly, for example) the more I knew how I had chosen probably the only person who would work so hard the entire time. He helped with referrals for workers, with watching work be done and checking on it, keeping in contact, helping whenever and wherever he could. I don’t think anyone else would have stuck around that long. He even allowed me to ‘take it out on him’ when problems arose - even though they had nothing to do with him (which I had no right to do whatsoever). When the house sold, and he took me to lunch, I felt very guilty. Really and truly, it was I who should be buying him lunch (and dinner, and more..) I have rarely been as grateful to someone - he was there for the long run. I don’t know anyone else who would work so hard to be there for his clients, no matter what. I knew I wasn’t his only client by far, but I expect he treats every client as his only one.

Frank West is a rockstar. He was always available for us whenever we had questions (we are first time homebuyers so we had a lot!). He brought us to a lot of homes that we liked but was also more than accommodating when we wanted to go to homes we found on Realty Austin's website. We eventually found a home that was over our budget, but Frank is such a fantastic negotiator we were able to get it to a price we felt comfortable with. His suggestions for the mortgage company and inspector were incredibly helpful. The experience of buying a first home can be really scary (and it was) but Frank made it as smooth and clear as possible. We would recommend him to anyone! Thanks Frank for all your help! See you at karaoke!

My partner and I met Frank West at one of his open houses and we clicked. Although we were in communication with another Realtor, Frank understood what we wanted. He didn't bother us with a lot of homes that wouldn't appeal to our needs. Although we wanted a house with a pool, there just weren't any on the market in the area we wanted as well as price point. It was always fun meeting up with Frank when we did go for a showing, and he always seemed to care. If you are looking for someone that will make you laugh and enjoy the house hunting process, reach out to Frank.

We are moving from the Pittsburgh area to Texas and Frank worked so hard to find us our perfect home. We ended up in New Braunfels which is a long way from Frank’s territory in Austin, but he was always there when we needed him. He was so helpful with the difficulties associated with a long distance house search. He is an exceptional real estate agent. We have worked with several agents over the years, but never one as accommodating and pleasant to be around. He is an expert at his profession. We feel very lucky to have found Frank as our agent.

Our long days of house hunting were so much easier with Frank’s friendly and engaging personality, and we hope to keep in touch with him once we finally get settled in our new home.

I believe Frank to be quite a prize. Very professional, responsive, ambitious, pro-active, courteous, and efficient. I have dealt with hundreds of Realtors in the past as a seller and a buyer, as well as running a home inspection business in California with over 300 Realtor clients. I was very impressed by him not only because of the attributes I listed, but because he applied himself thoroughly on the sale of my small inexpensive lot – a low profit venture for him.

Frank West helped my husband and I from beginning to end with every detail in selling our South Austin home. He came over with information on our home and provided us with selling tips to attract potential buyers. He helped us out with things like reducing furniture, staging particular rooms a certain way, providing advice on when to list and how much to list our home for. He answered every question that my husband and I had whether via text or email. He was always available to us and would often check in to see if we needed anything. Our home sold in two days!! We are so grateful for Frank's expertise and highly recommend him for you and your family. Real estate is a big deal whether you are buying or selling, you need a professional Realtor on your side to help you with your big decisions.

We could not have been in better hands! Frank went above and beyond to take care of us as clients. He kept us informed every step of the way. Friendly and honest , I recommend him highly!

Frank West is one of the most professional, caring, and ethical people I've ever experienced. He was knowledgeable about our market and provided us with an excellent marketing plan as our Listing Agent. He followed through on every showing to obtain feedback and provided us with excellent service throughout. I would highly recommend Frank West whether you are a buyer or a seller. He will take care of you as though you are a member of his own family.

Frank was so helpful when I sold my first home that when my husband's job caused us to relocate I immediately called Frank to help with the second home. Frank is able to price a a homes to maximize profit yet move it quickly so that you will not spend months trying to sell a home. (My first home closed within 60 days even with the government shutdown. My second home closed within 30 days at the price I asked minus a small flooring credit.) He is helpful and answers questions in a quick and timely manner.

I could not have been happier with my experience with Frank West. He truly made this a very positive experience and it went very smoothly. We were buying our first home for our growing family of three and I knew he had our best interest at heart the whole time. He was attentive, honest, and energetic about all matters and provided us exceptional service. We would recommend Frank West to anyone and plan on using him for any other needs we have in the future. Take care of this guy, he's the real deal.

Frank West helped me find a great house and really impressed me with his ability to make the whole process of house hunting and then buying that perfect house less intimidating. He was able to meet to look at homes on short notice, endlessly patient, great with pointing out any potential concerns a property might have, gave useful feedback as to the features that would help a home have good resale value, and personable as well. I really felt that he was interested in making sure I loved the home I finally ended up buying, and he gave me great confidence that every detail was being taken care of during the purchase process. Frank's communication skills were excellent, and he was professional in every way. He also had a number of contacts for other services which I really appreciate since I am new to the area. Frank is the consummate realtor in every way!

We are so happy with everything that Frank has done for us when helping us find our new home in Austin and with the whole purchasing process! It was a bit tricky since we still live in Sweden, and I am very impressed how he solved everything. He has by far exceeded any expectations we could have had, and his service level and positiveness is amazing. We will be very happy and honored to recommend him to new clients, friends and family.

We consider us very lucky to have had the opportunity to meet Frank!

I am not a novelist or journalist, so please do not expect much in the way of rhetoric. In random order, below is my unequivocal recommendation of my experience with Frank West:
Frank was referred to me through a mutual acquaintance
He immediately contacted/introduced himself to me, which began a dialog of what I was looking for
Being a good listener, attentive, and caring, Frank did his homework and research and provided me with available options
He worked tirelessly - sending updates 24/7 - meaning 1:00 or 3:00 in the morning
My situation, to me, was unique. My house in Dallas sold overnight giving me very limited time in Austin. In the process I relocated with family in Baltimore. Frank was in touch with me constantly. He worked tirelessly through this remote process.
Knowing I had limited time in Austin, Frank did cartwheels to make homes available for viewing. His patience persevered.
Each and every concern I had, not matter how big or how small, Frank addressed each issue with such professionalism as to not make me feel awkward with my questions - as simple, as they were.
Frank is a seasoned negotiator - "fought " for what he believed were issues on my behalf. I especially applaud his integrity.
I felt like a received special treatment from start to finish and I still am. Frank has gone above and beyond any expectations one could possibly ask. YES - I would and will recommend Frank without any hesitation.

I have purchased 5 homes with Frank West over the last few years and it has always been a pleasure to work with him. As an investor, Frank is extremely helpful in getting me the data that I am looking for to help make sound decisions from my home base in California. Frank has been instrumental in helping me find good workers and also reliable tenants for my rental properties. I can’t say enough good things about Frank. Being a small time investor from another state can be stressful and Frank has done a great job of helping to reduce that stress.

Frank West is the best there is! He has been our realtor for almost two years while we rented in search of the perfect place. He was so patient and yet so invested in us. He has always made us feel like great friends and we have truly enjoyed all the time spent with him. He is honest, timely and really knowledgable about the area. We finally closed on our house last week and we couldn't be happier! We really value his input and will be lifelong clients!

Andrea Woodbury Coles, Facebook Review

We had a great experience with Frank West. He listened to our parameters and limited the search based on them. He really knows the area and works extremely hard. I would definitely recommend Frank West and will use him again when we buy a house in the future.

This is my first weekend in my brand new home that Frank West helped me achieve. I was nervous about buying a home on my own and Frank took the time to help explain my concerns and what would work best for me. He stood by me as I went through the process and a lot of the time I would look at him and say, "Is this a good thing?" He was my champion with the companies we dealt with and stayed on top of them to do their job. He gave me excellent advice and made me feel at ease. I've bought homes before when I was married, and it was always a hassle. I have to say this was the best experience I've ever had in owning a home. Thank you so much Frank for all your hard work and putting up with my freak outs. FRANK IS THE MAN!

Karen Webb-Stark, Facebook Review

Frank West is an awesome Realtor and is always willing to help in any way he can. I know he will find me the place I've always wanted (and can afford!) even if it takes us a while. He is extremely patient and I can't tell you how refreshing that is to me. Thank you Frank for all you've done so far!

Leina Cochrane, Facebook Review

Frank worked very hard, and I would rate his work as exceptional. This was a very challenging property as it was a modular home in a neighborhood with a shared well system, making financing a challenge. He stuck with it and finally found a lender that would lend, which facilitated the final sale. I would recommend Frank to anyone I know selling a home.

Russell Wilson

Frank West is an excellent real estate agent. This is the 4th house that I have purchased with Frank. Being a real estate investor living in California, I need complete faith and trust in whom I chose to help me make these big decisions. Frank has excellent knowledge of real estate in the area that I have chosen to invest in and he is always timely with supporting materials and ideas. More importantly, Frank is excellent on follow through after the purchase is made and is extremely helpful in finding tenants and making sure the houses are rent ready. I would highly recommend Frank to anyone looking for a real estate agent that will work hard for his client’s best interest.

Mike Alandt

I’ve bought and sold several houses and unfortunately never really enjoyed working with a realtor until I met Frank West. I would not only use his services again if I needed to sell a home, I would highly recommend him to all of my friends and family!

Brandon Navinskey

We had a great experience with Frank West! The selling process went smoothly and Frank was always one step ahead in making sure all the necessary items were available in a timely manner. He was extremely patient with all of our questions, and made us feel comfortable throughout the selling process. When deciding to build, Frank did everything he could to ask our builder for some discount credits, which helped make our purchase more affordable!

Frank cares more about connecting with his clients and their needs than pushing for a sale. We are thankful to have Frank as a friend and an agent!

My family and I worked with Frank West to find our new home here in Austin. We had been working with another local agent for several weeks - without significant progress in our search. The time arrived for us to switch agents. We called his agency who hooked us up with Frank. My wife had checked his customer ratings which were very positive.

Frank had taken some input from my wife on our search parameters and recommended many homes. When we first met Frank, he was warm and friendly, informed, and obviously listening and on our side. Wow, what a difference from the other agent, and the agents that I have worked with in the past. Every home that we saw (in the 100+ degree Texas heat, with 3 small children) was spot-on what we were looking for! Frank knew the neighborhoods, accessible roads, schools, the housing market, and each home that we viewed.

Frank was with us ALL through the process (pre- offer, offer details, financing, coordinating workers to help with clean up and repairs, snags in the pre-closing, and at closing). As it turned out, even one month after closing and being in our new home, Frank was following up on details. When we discovered that the roof over our front porch had several leaks, Frank arranged for a local roofing contractor to check out the extent of the damage and leak. Then, Frank contacted the home builder (several times) - who agreed to replace the roof. I've never had such attentive and progressional service.

Working with Frank was like having a personal assistant, a real estate agent, and a good friend. If we needed a real estate agent in the future - we would not hesitate to call Frank. We would recommend him to our friends.

Samuel Downs

Working with Frank has truly been a pleasure. Being a real estate investor for the last six years has been challenging, to say the least. I have worked with several real estate agents who were really only interested in selling me a house with little to no follow-up. These real estate agents typically did not have a good grasp on rents, there was no interest in getting the house ready for lease, and they were of little help in finding good tenants to lease the new investment property. From the moment I met Frank, his ability to get timely and accurate information has been impeccable. Living in California and investing in Texas is not an easy task without someone like Frank. His attention to detail, follow-up and knowledge of the marketplace, in terms of locating properties and getting them ready for rental, puts him far ahead of his competition. Also, his ability to qualify good tenants has allowed me to sleep better at night. I can’t thank Frank enough for making this an enjoyable and profitable experience and I look forward to continued success in the future.

Mike Alandt

I've purchased over ten homes in my life and 2 multimillion dollar Apt complexes and in all my time, I have never had a Realtor with the dedication and thoroughness of Frank West. In our most recent purchase, Mr. West went above and beyond the call of a normal Realtor. He researched and answered all my questions concerning a unique property in a very timely manner and allowed for a smooth and quick purchase to transpire. I would HIGHLY recommend Frank West for anyone's realty needs and will continue to use him for all my future property purchases.

Damon Williams

I've known Frank for many many years, but business is different. Sometimes you're concerned that friends won't handle a business transaction with the same fervor that they may do for a stranger. But Frank is an absolute professional on all levels. If you get with him, you can trust you'll get the best possible outcome available and someone who has integrity.

Kevin E. West

Not so long after my husband and I were engaged, we decided the time was right to look for a home together. We contacted Frank West and within a few days, we’d not only found our home but put in an offer and were on our way... He was very flexible, easy to work with and so personable. Frank kept in contact with us continually, always keeping us up-to-date and informed. We are now the proud owners of our first home together. We LOVE everything about our home. Thank you Frank, for all your hard work and dedication!

Chad & Hilari Westfahl

Frank West has provided me with an outstanding Real Estate buying experience. He demonstrated commitment, integrity and professionalism while making me feel as if I was part of his family.

Kened Li-Diaz

Frank is an excellent realtor. He is knowledgeable about the business and works very hard at finding the right home for his clients.

Denise Donatelli

Frank West assisted me in my real estate search during my relocation to the Austin, TX area. Frank has such a strong reputation he was referred to me by a friend of a friend! His knowledge of the area was evident and he is just so friendly and helpful. If you want a true professional representing you in your real estate transaction, be it a lease or purchase, call Frank West. He made me feel right at home here in Austin, Texas!
