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 Douglas Lake

More Than 30,000 Acres of Water

In 1943, Douglas Lake was created by the damming of the French Broad River. It also collects intake from the Nolichucky River and a 4,541-mile watershed.


Douglas Lake is 43.1 miles long and covers a grand 30,400 acres. Its waters have a maximum depth of 140 feet and fluctuate 15-20 feet during the rainy season. It has 550 miles of shoreline, and less than 20% is developed.


Endless Outdoor Enjoyment

Douglas Lake is known for its abundant water activities, especially fishing. Named a BASSMASTER Top 100 Lake, it should be at the top of any angler’s list. It is in the nation’s top 10 largemouth bass lakes and the top five crappie lakes!


It is an exceptional location for boating and watersports. Its popular activities include pontooning, powerboating, water skiing, tubing, kayaking, and more.


The Douglas Headwater Public Swimming Beach features a roped-off swimming area, but there are many places you can dock around the shore.


In addition to the water activities, it offers picnicking, hiking, camping, and nature watching. Birdwatchers can especially enjoy the fall migration of shorebirds, wading birds, and other waterfowl that begin flocking to Douglas Lake in the late summer.


Important Amenities

On the east side of Douglas Lake is Newport Medical Center, and on the west side is LeConte Medical Center.


The McGhee Tyson Airport is under 50 miles away from the center of the lake, so it could be more or less depending on where you live.


Fun On the Town

Sevierville and Pigeon Forge feature a wide range of family-family attractions. The Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster, Hollywood Wax Museum, Dolly Parton’s Stampede, Soaky Mountain Waterpark, and the WonderWorks Museum are just a few of its hit attractions.


Venture to Knoxville for a nightlife scene of restaurants, bars, pubs, and live music. It also has a variety of shops, museums, and attractions.
