About Ike


Dedicated to Exceptional Service

Isaiah (“Ike”) Franks has lived in the High Country for the majority of his life. He considers himself a Watauga County native (26 years and counting) and briefly left the area  during his college years but this area had a way of calling him back “home.” Although he has worn many different hats throughout his career in early adulthood, he recently made a huge  change and is excited that he has joined the Stacie Pineda Real Estate Group as a licensed  North Carolina Real Estate Broker! 

As an avid runner (his goal is a 100 miler one day), he has become all too familiar with the  amazing variety of trails the High Country has to offer. He always supports our local businesses  including Cobo, Peppers, The Local Lion, Our Daily Bread, and Boone Bagelry. On the  weekends you can find him running an “easy” 20 miler, catching an ASU football game, making  home improvements and working in the garden, or catching a sunrise/sunset on a mountaintop. 

Ike is excited to share his knowledge and passion for the High Country with you! Let’s start your 828 journey together.
