Do you Believe in Miracles?! Yes…TEAMs still exist!

“When you pull on that jersey, you represent yourself AND your teammates.  And the name on the front is a helluva lot more important than the one on the back!” –Herb Brooks, from the movie Miracle     I played sports all my life.  All kinds of sports; whatever was in season.  I even wrestled for…

Our First Home

I remember the first house we purchased, waaaay back in 1999.  It was a small, 3-bedroom home in idyllic Signal Mountain, TN.  I still remember our REALTORⓇ standing with us on the front porch at 825 Texas Avenue looking across at the home that would eventually belong to lifelong friends. I could almost guarantee that someone…

The 4 Things Your Landlord Won’t Tell You

“I can think of nothing heavier than an aircraft; I can think of nothing less likely to fly.” These words, spoken by poet Saul Williams, are an absolute truth. It’s amazing, that through science, dedication, and a fair amount of hope, we are able to take something over 400,000 pounds, and make it airborne. Outside…

A Diamond in the Ruff

My wife Jennifer and I are sometimes referred to by our friends as Nomads. You see ,we have lived in 14 houses in 30 years of marriage. One house in Cross Creek, we lived in twice in 2 years but that’s another story! About 5 years ago, we decided that modern plumbing, functional wiring, square…

Home Ownership. Two words that many of us often take for granted and some think will never be their reality.

Ben & Melissa Phillips

Liz worked diligently for more than eight months and through three different contracts to get our home sold.  She was always prompt and responsive to any questions we had, and she worked to get timely information from the buyer's agent as well.

We finally closed on our new house! Michael did everything he could to get us to the closing, even through what seemed to be road blocks. He worked late at night if needed, stalked people that needed to be stalked, and answered the million questions I had, even if he had to ask somebody else. He also answered my phone calls every single time.

Brandon sold our home in Maryville in July 2018. It was on the market less than 10 days and we had competing offers OVER the asking price. It was so painless! Brandon also helped us buy our new home at the same time. He always made us feel like a top priority and did everything in his power to get things done efficiently. He was there every step of the way with us.

Lane really listened to what we wanted and was quick to set up any showings we were interested in! He was professional, knowledgeable, and we really felt like he came through for us!

Lane was a godsend. We were moving from out of state and didn't know the area well. He quickly got a great sense of what we were looking for and got us in to look at homes that we really loved. He even got us in to look at a few homes that weren't on the market yet. If you want someone who leaves no stone unturned, and who doesn't think twice about working long hours to meet your needs, Lane Shuler is your guy!

Lori was incredible to work with. She knows the area extremely well, and treated us as if we were her only clients. She was never pushy with us, and seemed to be one step ahead of us all the time. She is not a typical realtor who is out to make money. Lori truly wants her clients to find the right home for them. She's about helping people.

Working with Lori was a wonderful experience. Purchasing our home in TN was quite a lengthy process. For over 9 months, we stayed in contact with Lori through selling our home in MA, moving to TN and renting, looking at homes, etc,... Every step of the way, Lori was patient and supportive. Even post the closing of our home we are still in contact regularly. We feel she was not only our realtor but also our friend.

Lori was excellent to work with. She helped us to list and sell out house in just over a month, and also find a new home. She helped us get a great deal on both ends. She was always extremely prompt and organized and just a joy to work with. She turned a stressful event into a fun event!

My family was able to land house that we love and is exactly what we were looking for. Without the Griders, we would probably not seen the house in time to view it, let along, make an offer. They were equally as thrilled for us to get the house as we were. They wanted nothing more than for us to find our home and were willing to do what was necessary to get that done. They were genuinely happy for us.

My husband and I recently bought our home in Maryville and it is all thanks to Rachel!! She is amazing! We were looking for a home while living in a different city. She was very flexible with our schedule and helping show homes to us and she even made arrangements for other people in her group to show us homes while she was on a business trip. We had a limited time frame and she helped us find the home we wanted.
