The Frank family’s new baby gets a warm welcome at Rancho Sienna
When Hisako and Jason Frank welcomed their new baby, Bradley, to the family in January, they were overwhelmed by the countless displays of kindness and generosity from their neighbors at Rancho Sienna.
“It seemed like everyone in the community was dropping off meals for us, along with baby clothes and other gifts,” says Hisako. “We knew Rancho Sienna was a very friendly and tightknit community, but it still took us by surprise.”
As much as Hisako and Jason love living at Rancho Sienna, they first discovered the community totally by accident.
In 2019, Jason retired from active duty with the U.S. Army at Fort Hood, and Hisako resigned her commission as a reservist at the base, freeing them to leave Killeen and move to a safer community with better schools for their first son, Benjamin.
They decided on Georgetown as their relocation goal, and one of the first properties they toured was a listing they saw on a real estate website. Deciding immediately that the house was not right for them, they continued to drive around and entered Rancho Sienna through an unmarked construction entrance in the back of the community.
“We were going in blind, but when we drove further in and started to see all of the amenities, the landscaping and the model homes, we started to get intrigued,” Hisako recalls. “We were very excited to see Perry Homes, because that was a builder we had researched before and had really liked.”
The family walked into Perry’s model home just a few minutes before it closed. The sales consultant gladly stayed late and showed them a completed home, Plan 2210S, that had recently returned to the market.
“We snatched it up right away,” Hisako says. “We loved the open layout and the fact that it had two flex rooms, which we now use as a home office and gym. The homesite was also beautiful, with views of open space in the back.”
The family closed on their new home on the day before Thanksgiving. They moved in a couple of months later to provide Benjamin with a smooth transition from his current school. Today, he is a happy and thriving second-grade student at the community’s Rancho Sienna Elementary School, part of the highly regarded Liberty Hill Independent School District.
When they’re not busy working, this active family loves to walk the trails at Rancho Sienna along with their Husky, Lady. They’ve also enjoyed swimming at Sienna House and taking part in social activities, such as the food trucks that regularly visit. They hope to soon explore one of Rancho Sienna’s newest amenities, Wilderness Park, which is near their home.
