“Friends who share a passion for helping families discover this beautiful place…
and NOBODY knows this lake better!”

Since 1971 POSSUM KINGDOM REAL ESTATE® is proud to have been the leading Possum Kingdom Realtor in introducing people to our lake. Our over 50 YEAR respected and productive record encourages people in need of real estate service to come to us. WE LOVE REFERRALS! The majority of our business comes from referrals and because of the quality and tenure of our Agents we enjoy repeat Buyers. Our original PKRE® Broker Mary Lou Palmros passed on our reputation of being known for... “Nobody knows Possum Kingdom Lake better!” Our current Managing Broker and Marketing Director “V” Hanssen since 1996 has kept up with the legacy. Our business naturally expanded into recreational LAND SALES in close proximity to the lake. We increased our services in 2008 to include land sales in Palo Pinto, Stephens and Young counties. Our Brokerage has since also been associated with the “Best in the Business” organizations including Better Homes and Gardens in the 1990’s, RE/MAX Network from 2006-2016, and the LuxuryRealEstate.com network from 2018 to 2023. 

In 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 the NTREIS MLS System reported that PKRE® had the most Agents ranking in the TOP TEN PRODUCERS in all of Palo Pinto, Stephens, and Young counties, plus PKRE® reported the highest dollar production in sales for 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023. An accomplishment to be proud of considering the competition from DFW “mega brokerages” trying to push into our luxury second home market. ALL of our Agents have long tenure in our marketplace with their focus on achieving our most important goal of selling our clients’ properties, even under difficult market conditions. Our Agents share their expertise with our newer Agents, who are younger and more technically minded. The result is a positive environment of mentoring, teaching, and sharing. The difference in our organization is obvious to those who get to know us.

About Possum Kingdom Real Estate

For centuries, the raging Brazos River has cut its way through the Palo Pinto Mountains. In the 1940’s the river was dammed up to form a huge lake that was nestled within the dramatic North Texas Hill Country. The natural views are absolutely spectacular! Possum Kingdom Lake is one of the clearest lakes in all of Texas and we have been the only USA stop for the Red Bull Cliff Diving Series in the entire USA! We are a favorite spot for inland scuba diving and all types of boating. Year around activities include fishing, camping, hiking, golf, mountain bikes and horseback riding.
