About Darcy L. Knapp-Fricks
Darcy Knapp-Fricks serves in a variety of industries including real estate, investments, ranching, and self-storage. She is the president and co-owner of Knapp Sisters Rental, Ltd., a company she started with her sister, Shelly Knapp, in 1999, which specializes in land rentals. The pair also owns D&S Investments.
In addition, Darcy and Shelly own Knapp Sisters Self Storage which consists of five self-storage building facilities. The self-storage facility is a AAA business which consists of five self-storage buildings, with the largest of the five being climate controlled. Their business was rated the #1 U-Haul dealer in the state of Texas and #3 U-Haul dealer in the U.S.
With over 25 years experience in the fields of real estate, investments, cattle production, ranching and self-storage, Darcy is responsible for land rentals, agricultural and ranch management. She provides, maintains and manages rental properties and real estate.
Darcy claims God is her first mentor as He has a hand in everything she does. She also credits her grandfather, James H. Knapp, who was one of the first attorneys in Arlington, Texas back in the early 1940’s through the 1990’s. He was recognized by many for his accomplishments and was very instrumental in the development of the Texas city of Arlington which is located between Fort Worth and Dallas. Although he was an attorney by trade, his passion was real estate. This passion has carried on past his lifetime and into hers. Darcy believes that if she can maintain that passion, it would be a great duty served as well as to pass on to her children.
Darcy faces challenges head on and her advice to other is to always go with your gut feeling; it will not steer you wrong. “When I first had the idea to build a self-storage facility, I made up my mind that it was going to be different from others,” said Darcy. She knew nothing about the storage business until then, but, she listened to her intuition telling her to go with it, and it has been a tremendous success. “There is nothing too big or too small for you to accomplish,” said Darcy, “If you believe in yourself and whatever your plans are, you can be successful.”
The Knapp sisters are members of the Texas Self Storage Association, the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association, the Arlington Historical Society, the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce and the Better Business Bureau.
