Extraordinary Agent of the Week | Melinda Grimac
Downtown Knoxville properties have been a part of Melinda Grimac’s life since the early 90’s when she and her husband acquired their first property on Gay Street. Melinda was a fan of the downtown area when many failed to see the potential of our wonderful city. Residential and commercial development projects are natural fits to her thought processes and goals.
In Melinda’s personal endeavors, she has designed and managed several projects from beginning to end and continues to hold several properties as investments. Her most recent project was a commercial building on Gay Street where she currently resides. Melinda’s personal residence was created from previously leased office spaces. As the owner and end user of the property, Melinda acted as general contractor during which time she designed the layout, chose building materials and all finishes, and supervised the project to completion. Melinda and her family have lived in the space for several years now and they love it. Downtown is a wonderful place!
Melinda’s clients benefit from her personal hands-on real estate experiences as well as her ability to guide clients through the decision-making process of achieving their own real estate goals. Whether you choose a move-in ready property or one that is waiting for your special touches: residential or commercial. Melinda looks forward to working with you.
