Not born in Texas, but arriving as fast as she could, Karen Hettrick considers herself an 'almost' native Texan. Born in Upstate New York and raised in Dallas, Texas, Karen's passion for real estate stems from an entrepreneurial spirit and a love of significant homes and an appreciation of her East Dallas community. Karen is a graduate of the Ursuline Academy of Dallas and the University of Texas at Austin where she earned her degree in Marketing and Advertising.
In 2002, after many years of utilizing her degree in business and upon the birth of her second child, George, Karen decided to put her enterprising drive to work and became a real estate agent. Focusing on East Dallas, Karen has proven to be neighborhood expert and consistent producer in the area. In 2017, Karen put her license on hold and explored a career working in title insurance for Allegiance Title. Now she is returning to her roots and her passion by joining Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.
Karen has enjoyed selling homes with character such as 2001 Buckner Boulevard - the only 'earth shelter' home in Dallas as well as selling homes to characters such as reality TV Fast and Loud's Richard Rawlings.
As an active member of her community, Karen and her husband, Greg, have raised their children, Kate, George and Jack, in the Emerald Isle neighborhood of East Dallas on the shores of White Rock Lake. The Hettricks have been active participants in St. Thomas Aquinas school and church and Bishop Lynch High School. Karen continues to be involved in the Ursuline Academy Alumnae Association, Dallas United Crew, Lakewood Area Women in Business, Texas Exes, Emerald Isle HOA and many other social and philanthropic organizations. In addition, Karen is the Vice President of the Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce and will begin her role as President in 2022.
George Hettrick is an authentic “native Texan” who brings youthful enthusiasm, extensive interpersonal skills and a love of technology to the group. George was born and raised in East Dallas and graduated from Bishop Lynch High School. After an arm injury cut a promising baseball career short, George made the decision to transition to residential real estate where his considerable talents will help the next generation attain the American dream.
