Barbara Fredricken
Owner / Broker

With over 14 years of experience with residential products in The Woodlands, Barbara Fredricksen has a tremendous amount of knowledge to share with her clients in guiding them through the buying or selling process with their real estate purchase.

Barbara joined The Woodlands Development Company's marketing department to plan and orchestrate all the events associated with the 25th Anniversary celebration of The Woodlands.  Once that year of event's had passed, Barbara transitioned into the Managing Director of The Woodlands Homefinder Center, overseeing the day to day operations of the center. Its main purpose was to introduce potential prospects to The Woodlands community, including an in depth knowledge of all home products available to a homebuyer. With all the amenities available in The Woodlands, it did not take long to convince prospects that The Woodlands was the best place to "Live, Work, Play and Learn"!

As the plans started to take shape for The Woodlands Waterway, Barbara had the opportunity to market and sell the first residential product to be built along The Waterway.  Starting from dirt, Barbara watched the Waterway Lofts condominium materialize, and was able to successfully sell all 36 units in the building, months before completion.  The demand did not slow down and plans were developed for the second building, Two Waterway Lofts.  This 34 unit project once again sold out months before completion.  During this process, Barbara gained tremendous knowledge of the condominium product, as well as understanding the distinct benefits homeowners were seeking with a low maintenance, "lock and leave" home product.  This is a lifestyle that many people are looking for, and The Woodlands now has many options that would be a perfect fit!

Nearing the completion of The Waterway Lofts projects, Barbara saw the need for a real estate professional to specialize in this market.  Because she had more knowledge and expertise in the Town Center products than other area realtors, she decided to create Town Center Realty.  Located in the heart of The Woodlands' Town Center, we specialize in all urban home products along The Waterway, as well as East Shore's Garden District on Lake Woodlands, but can assist you with any buying or selling of real estate!  Let us work for you!

Becky Shannonhouse, REALTOR®

As a resident of The Woodlands for the past 19 years I have seen the community grow significantly in all areas. I am passionate about this community and the quality of life you can experience as a resident, an employee of one of the many companies, the shopping and dining, volunteering in some of the various organizations, but most of all the outdoor experiences of the parks, pathways and golf courses.

In 2000 I joined The Woodlands Development Company as the director of relocation and realtor relations. As the liaison to the REALTORS and builders I promoted the overall quality of the life style in The Woodlands. Through my experience I gained and in-depth knowledge of the market area, and developed relationships with several of the real estate related business such as mortgage lenders, title and insurance companies.

After 9 plus years of working on the development side of the real estate I moved into another exciting aspect of the business which was working directly with the REALTORS in a different capacity. I became the director of business/agent development and agent recruiting for one of the largest real estate companies in The Woodlands. This enabled me to view every step of the buying and selling process through the client’s experience. This experience helped me realize that I really wanted to dedicate my time to helping my clients realize their dream of owning their first home or buying their dream home. So I joined Town Center Realty so I could focus on my real estate passion as an agent.

I look forward to helping you with ANY of your REAL ESTATE needs, whether you want to lease, buy or sell……

I would love the opportunity to Lead you through this exciting Experience!
