My real estate niche in the East Tennessee area is helping buyers find the lake property of their dreams. As a lake property specialist for Norris, Cherokee, Douglas and Loudon lakes, you can find me walking properties and capturing the beauty of the land on my camera when not showing properties.


Land is where the real estate dream starts, and with my experience, I can guide you in finding the lot or acreage that fits your needs. If a finished house on or near the water is your preference, I can assist in finding that perfect home as well.


My experience as a former IBM sales executive, an owner of multiple lake properties in East TN, and a licensed Realtor, comes into play when working with my buyers and sellers. Listening is one of the skills I have learned in dealing with clients for many years, and combined with a knowledge of our beautiful lakes within an hour radius of Knoxville, I am qualified to help you with your lake property real estate needs.


Having moved 9 times in my previous career, I know what a difference the right Realtor can make in what can be a stressful time in one's life. My goal is to always see a big smile on my client's face at the end of a closing, and to ensure the entire process results in a very positive referral from that client.


As an e-PRO designated agent, I leverage the strength of the internet during the buying and selling and marketing process. I also value the traditional approaches to marketing properties, so a combination of these elements makes for a strong real estate market presence.


I am also a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES), which means I have a core competence in working with clients and their needs in the 50+ time of their lives. Bottom line though, is I like to talk with my clients... so call me anytime to put my experience to work for you!

About Cherokee Lake

Surrounded by scenic farmlands, Cherokee Lake is one of the oldest Tennessee Valley Authority reservoirs. Construction began August 1st, 1940, and ended on December 5th, 1941. The completed Cherokee Reservoir Dam is 175 feet high with a length totaling 6,760 feet.


The dam collects water from a 3,428 square mile watershed from its surrounding counties, Hawkins, Grainger, Hamblen, and Jefferson.


Cherokee Lake spans 30,300 acres of water surface at full pool, and is 59 miles long. All together, Cherokee Lake has 436 miles of gorgeous shoreline, perfect for picnics as well as vacation homes. It is centrally located with Morristown, Jefferson City, and Rogersville just a short car ride away.


Cherokee Lake is known for its Striped Bass fishing, but also possesses copious varieties of fish including, Black Bass, Walleye, Sunfish, Sauger, Crappie, Catfish, and White Bass. Of all the Tennessee Valley Authority lakes tested, Cherokee has the highest score for Large Mouth Bass.


Fish densities in Cherokee Lake are greater than most other Tennessee Valley Authority Reservoirs due to a dense forage base of Alewife, Threadfin Shad, and Gizzard Shad. Many fish attractors have been constructed to improve fishing for anglers including brush piles (used by game fish) and stake beds (used to concentrate Crappie).


The Tennessee Valley Authority has created long lasting habitats by planting River Birch, Bald Cypress, Swamp Oak, and Willow trees.


The Tennessee Valley Authority also provides many recreational facilities at Cherokee Dam including a swimming beach, picnic area, a year round boat launch ramp, and a campground that is open from April to September.
