Get to Know Lara O'Keefe


I love my job and it shows! In my 12 years of real estate experience at several top DFW home builders, I have helped over 500 clients and offer an expert approach to helping buyers and sellers. 

I optimize my inside knowledge of builders to deliver the best experience for my clients; from selecting the right builder, negotiating with inside, expert knowledge, helping with the navigation of construction issues and builder time frames as well as closing on your new home through the use of close, personal contacts and experience with the builders.

Buying and/or selling your home can be an enjoyable, yet challenging, experience and I will help you through every step of the process in order to make it easier for you.

I live in McKinney with my architect husband, Jay and our two Golden Retrievers, Bentley & Royce. I consider myself a ‘naturalized Texan,’ but am originally from England and grew up in Ireland, Canada, and Puerto Rico. My travels help me connect with many cultures; I even speak Spanish!

My friends often say that I never meet a stranger and bring my passion for real estate to everything I do! I believe that my clients come first and I truly listen to their wants and needs to help them find their dream home and/or sell their existing home.

“Lara has amazing knowledge of the real estate market, is honest, hard working, and gets her buyers every penny she can! An asset to everyone she meets!”
Audrey Reed
“I’ve had the privilege of working with Lara as both a business partner and a client. My husband and I built our David Weekley home prior to me entering real estate, and Lara was our sales consultant. Lara saw us through the entire process – from selecting our lot through moving in to our new home, and it was an incredibly smooth transaction thanks to Lara’s professionalism and her commitment to helping us. We couldn’t have gotten through it without her. And, as a Realtor, I’ve had the pleasure to work with Lara to do the same for my clients. She is simply amazing at her job!”
Robin Kuklenski

“ Lara is that unique Realtor who walks her talk. Simply put Lara is one of the best salespeople I have had the pleasure to work with. She listened to me and then went out and made it happen – not just some of the time – all of the time. I know Lara as a special individual with a positive can-do attitude, who accepts responsibility and makes things happen with little oversight or direction. I highly recommend Lara to anyone seeking these qualities in an individual.”
