Rebecca Carter
The Carter Group Brokered By: eXp Realty
About Rebecca

My husband and I jumped into the real estate world in 2009 flipping houses and buying rental properties. Then in 2014, I decided to get my real estate license so I could sell the homes we remodeled. Friends and relatives began asking me to help them buy or sell homes and my role as a Real Estate Agent took off. At the beginning of 2017, I had so much business that I asked my husband to leave his job as a medical software salesman & get his real estate license. The Carter Group was born! Today our business thrives on repeat business, and I am not ashamed to say that over 75% of our clients are referrals. I live in Knoxville, and have one daughter. In my few moments of free time, I enjoy traveling to new places, volunteering at my church, reading, line dancing and visiting with friends and family. A proud graduate of The University of Tennessee (Knoxville), I feel that continuous education is essential. I currently have additional training as a Certified Residential Specialist. I love selling real estate, but serving people is why I do it.

Cindy Kraus
Engel & Völkers Knoxville
About Cindy

A self-professed introvert at heart, Cindy Kraus knows what it is like to face your most challenging fears, including the fear of success. She grew up in a challenging home environment and credits the love and stability of her grandmother and sister that shaped who she is today. Cindy’s first professional career was in the medical field. She was a Respiratory Therapist for 30 years. Having worked in this field so long, she understands instinctively why high-level professionals need an advocate who can provide turnkey solutions for services outside their everyday work life. As her career was nearing the 30th year, her daughter was getting ready to go to college and she had an 8-year-old son at home. It was time for a career change. Real estate seemed a perfect solution, because it combined her love for architecture with a schedule that would be flexible enough to give her son the time and care he needed throughout the rest of his school years. The moment she earned her real estate license, Cindy decided her talents would best serve medical and other high-level professionals who are seeking luxury real estate throughout East Tennessee. They would need someone they could trust implicitly so they could stay focused on their profession while she settles the specifics of their transaction. As a result, she has adopted the mantra and is recognized for providing Exceptional Service for Platinum Professionals. She is the licensed partner for Engel & Völkers Knoxville and is a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist who is in the top 10% of agents the Knoxville Area. Cindy lives in Farragut, Tennessee with her husband, and family. When she isn’t settling the specifics of a real estate deal for her busy clients, she enjoys walking her Goldendoodle, Bella, and volunteering with area groups and causes such as The Farragut Rotary Club, Big Brothers/Big Sisters as a mentor and Charity Chicks. Cindy’s background and stellar service record make her a sought-after agent among medical and other high-level professionals, but that isn’t the main reason her clients appreciate her. She believes in treating all people with dignity, friendship, and a smile, no matter their walk in life. That character trait proves that, regardless of your childhood challenges, you can overcome the past and become an inspiration to others.

Scott Griggs
Tennessee Valley Realty Associates
About Scott

Scott Griggs, Principal Broker and Owner, founded Tennessee Valley Realty Associates in 2010. Amidst major changes in the real estate and mortgage markets, he developed a new approach to the traditional Real Estate Brokerage. Abandoning out dated techniques, utilizing current technologies and looking ahead to respond to future market trends, are what sets him apart from others. Scott graduated Auburn University before moving to Knoxville in 2001. Beginning in consumer sales, he moved to the mortgage industry and worked as a mortgage loan officer for several years. This inside knowledge of loan programs, lending guidelines, underwriting processes, inspections and appraisals gives his clients a tremendous advantage when buying or selling property of any kind. Not all real estate contracts make it to the closing table. Issues with buyer financing are the main reason for failed contracts. The ability to identify potential problems or weaknesses in advance, often provides the valuable time needed to take action to prevent a failed contract. After many years of closed mortgage loans, Scott put away his mortgage calculator and loan program guidelines and applied for his real estate license. After 5 years of industry experience he applied for his Broker license in Tennessee. Scott embraces continuing education as a core competency that sets himself apart from his competitors. Knowledge of market trends on the local level and insight of what is trending on a national and regulatory level provides valuable information made available to clients and agents within the firm. Scott has found a way build a real estate firm comprised of highly trained consultants rather than a traditional sales staff. When it comes to real estate transactions, every TVRA buyer or seller client gets an individual designated agent. Each agent has been trained to handle any situation presented but also has the backing of the entire TVRA team. Give Scott a call or drop by our Bearden office today.

Zach Sale
Realty Executives Associates
About Zach

Born and raised here, I have been immersed in the Knoxville community all my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. Growing up, I attended local schools and eventually graduated from the Haslam College of Business at The University of Tennessee. My real estate career started as a result of my love and first-hand knowledge of Knoxville. Since 2016, I have been helping home buyers and sellers navigate even the most challenging markets to attain the best option for their lifestyle. I earn the respect of my clients by working tirelessly on their behalf and by always offering them insightful advice. My philosophy is simple: I value building relationships with people in order to understand their unique circumstances in life. Through professional marketing and a network of personal connections, I hope to exceed your expectations and go beyond the role of an agent. I know that buying or selling your home is more than a just a decision that you have made, and for me it's More Than a Sale. Now raising my own family here, I am deeply rooted in our community. Whether you are a family looking to buy, a couple downsizing, or anything in between, you can count on me to be an honest, trusted voice throughout the process.
