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.

Karen Frakes did a fantastic job of pricing our house just right. It sold quickly for full price. Karen and her team took care of the details and kept us updated with great communication and information. I would definitely recommend Karen and Realty Austin.

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.

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.

Karen was fantastic! We would definitely recommend her and Realty Austin to friends and family, and we plan to consult with her for our future sales and purchases.

Karen was an exemplary agent for me. Not only did she get me the highest home ever sold in my neighborhood, but she also helped me through a very difficult buyer. She first helped me by telling me what had to be done prior to even listing my house. She then hired the best photographer to showcase the property. I believe these were two key elements of why we had an offer with two back up offers and why in continued to show all the way up until a couple of weeks before it sold. The buyer's agent on the other hand I felt was unethical, and I'm actually tempted to report her to the board of realtors. Karen did an outstanding job, and I would highly recommend her and Realty Austin any day.
