Senior Leadership


Debbie Elliott-Sexton

President, CEO

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. In less than a year our team has doubled in size and is quickly becoming home to many of the area's premier agents who are attracted to the unique marketing and brand awareness that Sotheby's International Realty provides.

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.

Jenny Snodgrass

Vice President of Operations and Management

Born and raised in Knoxville, Jenny graduated with honors from the University of Tennessee with a BS in industrial engineering, and later earned her MBA from Bristol University. After working for General Motors in Alabama, Jenny returned to Knoxville to take a position with CVS, maximizing efficiency in distribution centers throughout the eastern United States.

Transitioning into real estate evolved naturally: Jenny has a passion to create results, boundless energy, and a desire to balance her career and family life. But it's her love of homes that best prepared Jenny for a career in real estate. She has designed and built three homes, and remodeled four more (two for herself and two for others). It was when she and a friend partnered in 2006 for an investment opportunity that Jenny decided to earn her real estate license and devote her career to helping clients buy and sell homes. Today, Jenny ranks among the top 4% of producing agents in the Knoxville area.

Earning her broker's license in 2010, Jenny recently accepted a leadership role with Alliance Sotheby's International Realty as Senior Vice President of Operations and Management. This means that, in addition to helping clients find the perfect property or the optimal sales strategy, Jenny mentors the Knoxville team of Sotheby's real estate agents to provide impeccable service, negotiate the best contracts for their clients, and maintain the highest professional standards.

Jenny serves on the Education Committee of the Knoxville Area Association of Realtors, actively volunteers for the PTO of her children's high school and middle school, serves on her neighborhood HOA board, and runs with the Knoxville Track Club, finishing in the top 22% overall in the 2012 Covenant Health Knoxville Half Marathon.
