Extraordinary Agent of the Week

Debbie Elliott-Sexton

For me there’s no greater reward than making a positive impact on the life of another. I have made real estate my career because of the benefits of helping others. To navigate the complex decisions involved in today’s real estate market requires the guidance of a professional. I am committed to service with an emphasis on accountability, reliability, timeliness and enthusiasm.

Providing all the information necessary to make real estate investment decisions throughout the changing market cycles is something I take pride in. As a leading real estate professional in Knoxville, I took my career – and the real estate industry – to a higher level by opening the doors to Alliance Sotheby’s International Realty. I felt that the Knoxville real estate market was in need of a higher standard in luxury properties and communities. Sotheby’s International Realty is a world-wide leader in marketing and selling exceptional properties and I am proud to bring Knoxville into that equation.

Alliance Sotheby’s International Realty takes a different approach to real estate, one that is built on personal touch and positive results. A home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door, the way you can instantly envision your life unfolding there. This is about more than real estate. It is about your life and your dreams. Our brand works to utilize the latest technologies, market research and business strategies to exceed your expectations. I love helping other people achieve success. Whether it’s helping a client find the perfect home or helping my agents build their businesses, there’s nothing more rewarding and inspiring to me than making an impact on people’s lives.
