Jan and Phil AtkinsonFrisco Lakes Real Estate Consultants
Hi! We are Phil and Jan Atkinson, Real Estate Consultants in Frisco Texas. We have lived in the Frisco area since 1998 and we have watched Frisco grow from around 10,000 people to nearly 155,000 to date. It’s been amazing and exciting watching the growth.
We currently live in the Del Webb community of Frisco Lakes and have lived here since 2012. We have 6 beautiful grandchildren, three of which live very close by. Time with family and friends is very important to us.
Frisco Lakes has been the perfect place for us to live, work and play. Making new friends and enjoying all the amenities this HOA has to offer has truly provided the ‘just right’ place for us!
Our love for real estate comes from personal experience through the years as we have personally bought, sold, flipped and even put together a housing development in Celina Texas over our years together.
Jan worked as an Executive Assistant for a couple of top executives in the area for many years, then started her own business as a Wedding Consultant before pursuing real estate as a career. Phil is retired after 25 years with American Airlines. All along the way, together, we have been purchasing, fixing and selling homes. The fun was finding the perfect property and then redoing it. We love finding deals!
Beginning in 2007 we made the decision to get our real estate license and start helping others find their perfect home or investment property. Finding the perfect property/home can be challenging but especially rewarding when the ‘perfect one’ is discovered. We always tell our clients, “You will know when it’s the right one.” It’s all about listening and understanding what they are really looking for and knowing what they are willing to give up and what is most important to each individual’s situation.
God has truly blessed us with many wonderful people that we have had the pleasure of helping through the buying and selling process sharing our knowledge and experiences, and guiding them to the closing table. I thank God for His blessings every day.

She is the ABSOLUTE best!!
I could never say enough great things about Jan. She helped my family and I find our first home. We looked for months, often my 4 children would have to go with us to look at houses and she was the most patient person I have ever met. Jan was always knowledgeable and quick to respond to any questions we had with the home buying process. I will never use a different realtor because I have not only found the absolute best realtor, Jan has also become our friend. I loved working with her and my kids adore her. I would highly recommend Jan to anyone looking to buy a home in the area, she is the ABSOLUTE best!! Lindsay Nabors - Little Elm
She keyed in on what I really needed
Loved working with Jan. She guided me through the home buying process from start to finish. After showing me several houses she keyed in on what I really needed and took me right to my new home. Couldn't be happier. Mike Whittington - Frisco Lakes
She has a genuine interest to know you
My wife and I wanted to relocate to an active-55-year old plus adult community. We were undecided between Frisco Lakes and two others. We met Jan Atkinson when setting up an appointment to see one of her listings. We immediately knew that Jan was the Realtor we wanted to represent us. What distinguishes Jan from other Realtors we had worked with, was her genuine interest in getting to know what we were looking for in a house, what would work and what would be an automatic rejection by us. She spent months with us looking for just the right house, never losing patience with us. She represented us well in the submission of offers and negotiations all the way through closing. Jan is a pleasure to work with! David and Debbie Riach - Frisco Lakes
Gracious, Patient and Confident
Having been out of Texas for a few years, we were caught off guard by the fast paced real estate market we moved back into. I had been our real estate researcher in the past but this time around we needed a professional to keep up with the pace of moving real estate and our very demanding needs. Jan was this person! As soon as we met, I knew she was going to be excellent for understanding and meeting our needs. Jan was gracious and patient and confident. We were very specific and yet needed a bit of flexibility and creativity to make it happen for us. The "Coming Soon" sign was pursued and we were able to make a confident offer and close the deal. All because of her guidance and honesty. We felt comfortable with her knowledge and expertise. Her contacts helped the process move smoothly forward. Thank you, Jan Atkinson, for your dedication to being honest and professional. Kaye and Paul Gunlocke - Lake Dallas
Look no further than Jan Atkinson
If you are looking for a person to assist you with one of the most important decisions you will make in your life….buying or selling a home, then you need look no further than Jan Atkinson. Buying and selling a home can be both exhilarating and enjoyable but it can also be wrought with frustration, aggravation and let’s not forget the pain of all the paperwork with all that small print. I can promise you that if you make the smart decision to partner up with Jan Atkinson, you will enjoy far more of the exhilaration and far less of the associated time wasting trivia that many realtors may walk you through. My experience with Jan was one that had all the potential for disaster due to several personal circumstances that Jan clearly understood and mentored me through as we looked for a house that would meet all my many needs. Jan took the time to first talk with to clearly understand my personal needs; my financial limitations and the challenges we would encounter since I was not a resident of the Dallas area. I honestly believe Jan had a far better idea of what I needed than I did and more importantly she did not play the shell game of showing me homes I did not need or could not afford. Instead she did her research so thoroughly that the very limited time I had to look at homes was maximized which allowed us to look at more homes in my price range that meet all my needs in the shortest amount of time possible. When it came time for the painful paperwork required to make an offer or actually buy the house, Jan made it all very easy. Every document was well prepared and explained to me in detail and once tendered to the seller, she provided a level of overwatch that insured I was kept informed of every step and every outcome of the home buying experience. As I stated earlier, I had several personal situations in play in my home buying experience and as fate would have it I found myself in need of selling the home a little over a year after buying it. Jan handled that as well. She took care of all the issues prior to putting the house on the market and when she was confident it was ready to sell, it went on the market at noon on a Friday and by 5:00PM that same day we had 4 offers. By noon the next day there were a total of 5 firm offers and based upon Jan’s experience and knowledge of the process, she assisted in selecting the best offer that was most sure to close. That offer was for $6000.00 above asking price and we closed exactly on time. ALL thanks to Jan Atkinson and her prowess as a true Real Estate professional and her sheer determination to do the very best she possible can for each and every client she has. Jan Atkinson is the consummate professional whose personal integrity and commitment to taking care of her clients is without peer. I promise you can count on her from the moment you become her client until the moment you sign on the dotted line when finalizing the purchase or sale of your house.
