Shortly after having founded Eastern Tennessee Preppers, I began receiving requests from members and nonmembers alike to help them find property in the area for their retreat locations. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to get my real estate license so I can help people relocate to this beautiful area we call East Tennessee. Whether you are buying or selling, I have the knowledge and insight to either find the perfect place to hang your hat or the means to find a buyer who values the property just as much as you do.
