I was born and raised in this beautiful hill country town, surrounded by great food, music and people. I grew up in Tarrytown and moved to Westlake for high school. I was raised around the real estate business and often accompanied my mother in visiting properties around town or visiting my father at his office in the Land Office. After graduating from St. Stephen’s Episcopal High School, I received a Bachelor’s degree in Asian Studies from Scripps College in southern California.
As part of my studies I spent two years studying at Sophia University in Tokyo, where I met my husband and in 2018 I gave birth to our son. During my ten years in Japan, I taught English and was Director of a study abroad program at a small university. I have traveled around the world and lived overseas in Prague, Czech Republic and both Tokyo and Osaka, Japan. Upon returning to Austin after over a decade living in Japan, I got my real estate license.
Since high school I’ve enjoyed tennis and archery. Recently I spend my free time with my family, playing with my son, visiting friends and my amazing clients, reading, and planning my next family trip overseas.
Frances is a gem. Not only is she exceedingly knowledgeable about the Austin real estate market but she also is a WORK-HORSE ORGANIZING MACHINE! She was immediately responsive to my texts and calls, very flexible when I wanted to see more houses, and the best part - she never complained once. I never saw her not-smiling or tired, I truly don't know how she does it all. You are very lucky to have her employed with your company because I will recommend her to EVERYONE I know in Austin and will definitely be buying our future homes with her. – Haley Lyman
