Years of working, buying/selling and exploring the lakes of East Tennessee have well seasoned my knowledge of Norris, Cherokee, and Douglas lakes, not to mention several others.


As a well traveled navy dependent, college trained cartographer and Realtor, an avid boater and equestrian, I have motored, paddled the waters, ridden horseback, and hiked miles of shoreline. The nuances and geography for each lake are unique and important to grasp when looking for your lake home location.


Finding the match for your lifestyle as a buyer and that match for your home or land, as a seller, is what I do best. Loving what I do, doing it with professional ease while keeping your criteria as priority, will make your real estate experience informed and successful.


Lakefront or simply beautiful Tennessee property? Tell me about it and I will find it or sell it for you.


The Right Realtor for You?


Are you just discovering East Tennessee lake communities or a local resident who knows right where you want to be? I will plug you into available inventory and supply you with details when you need them. I can give you organized directions to explore the area as it fits your time frame and interests. Small or large properties, restricted or unrestricted... it is out there!


A constant communication thread, listening and professional skills are key to a successful selling or buying transaction.


Creative and traditional marketing ramp up your success as a seller. Creative and traditional and well informed negotiating skills bring my buyers a fair to awesome purchase value.


Can I lay claim to being a top producer in a real estate company? Yes. But more importantly, I work diligently to find that property, or that buyer that fits, and makes that sale you are looking for!

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.
