THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF AGENTS IN KNOXVILLE FOR YOU TO CHOOSE FROM. HERE IS WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT.
MY COMMITMENT TO GIVING BACK
I am an animal lover. Growing up I had neighbors that had golden retrievers and I became good friends with one- her name was Angel. Because my family wouldn't let me have a dog, I spent a lot of time with my neighbor's dogs and I vowed that when I was older I would adopt my own golden retriever!
Fast forward to 2005- I had my own home and knew that the time was right for me to adopt. I visited an Adopt-a-Thon for the Tennessee Valley Golden Retriever rescue and met my first adoptee- Berkeley. It was love at first site! Two years later we adopted a companion for Berkeley from the TVGRR, Betty Joe, and she was my second great love! In 2010 a street dog from Chattanooga joined our household, Michael!
As with all animals who come into our lives, the one certainty is that there comes a time when we must say goodbye. Cancer took Berkeley in early 2011, and Betty Joe and Michael passed away in 2015. The pain was very hard but the memories and love we shared were worth it.
I am a firm believer in the importance of animal rescue, having adopted 5 dogs into my family over the past decade. I can't imagine my life without these 5 family members who changed me for the better. Because of this I decided earlier this year to dedicate 5% of all my real estate income to supporting local Knoxville area animal rescues. Additionally, I am committed to working with these groups to advance their mission in our community. Its my small way of giving back to some great groups that make real differences in not only animals' lives, but also people's lives!
A PROTECTOR OF YOU AND YOUR INTERESTS
I am not your typical pushy salesperson who is more committed to earning the "sale" than serving you and your needs. Instead, I am a PROTECTOR of my clients and their interests. You need someone who will be on your side 100% during this most important financial transaction, who doesn't put the coveted commission check above doing what is right for you and your family. I promise that I will be available and accessible to you through every step of the transaction.

OTHER STUFF ABOUT ME
I moved here in 1996 to attend the University of Tennessee, and I immediately fell in love with Knoxville and all it has to offer. The people and our kindness to one another and sense of community are strong here and makes us one of the best places to live in East Tennessee and the United States.
After graduating in 2001 with a degree in Political Science and Sociology, I spent the next decade working as a community organizer and in various local political campaigns. This time strengthened my commitment to helping people and improving the world around me.
I have always had a strong interest in real estate and neighborhoods, and in 2014 I decided to pursue this passion by helping people through one of the most important and stressful items in a person’s life - the buying and selling of one’s home.
In my spare time I enjoy hanging with my husband Wes Knott and being a rescue "dad" to my two dogs Samuel and Prince! If you think we'd make a good match working together, please give me a call!
