About Kara Franklin
Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, my husband, Joe and I moved to Lodi in the late 90’s with our three kids. We have traveled worldwide both for leisure (we love Italy) and as a military family. Joe spent 12 years in the Marine Corps and we were stationed in Japan for three of those years. Joe is now an airline pilot with a lot of hotel experience. Together we have incorporated many of our favorite travel conveniences and amenities into The Downtown Walnut. I hate it when I can’t charge my phone right next to my bed! And since Joe stays so many nights in hotels, he insisted we have great mattresses and high quality linens. It’s all about the comfort!
Kara Franklin purchased this house in 2018
Why Kara Franklin chose Lodi
We love old downtown Lodi! The relaxed pace and small town feel of Lodi combined with its world class wine and a growing downtown area makes it an exciting community to be a part of.
