"When I returned to Knoxville to rejoin the Lady Vols, the first call I made was to my “Real Estate Coach Bailey”. I told Coach Bailey to find me a good location with good appreciation possibility. When I decided to move to the Pros we put the house on the market and it sold quickly and for a good price. When you need a good “Real Estate Coach” call my friend Coach Bailey."

"My relationship with Dick and Sharon began at the Riverclub Community and naturally progressed to the marketing of lots in Gettysvue.... they were valuable members of the Gettysvue team which resulted in a very successful lot and home sales campaign for the community..."

Ron Watkins, Developer

"I have dealt with Sharon and Dick both on my personal real estate needs and also in the marketing of Promontory Point in downtown Knoxville... Promontory was a new concept when it began and their professional presentations resulted in a successful sellout of the property."

Jim Bush

"We purchased our home in Westmoreland from Sharon over 20 years ago and when we built our new home we knew we needed her expertise to get our home sold... not only did she advise us, she hired the sub-contractors to get the work done and got the house sold... always full service!"

Dennis and Becky Ragsdale

"During the great recession, we listed our home and during a time when we didn’t even ” know if it was possible, Sharon and Dick found the right buyer at the right price. They worked closely with us for the next two years, first finding us a lovely rental home, then assisting us with purchasing a lot, and finally introducing us to a wonderful architect and contractor. When our dream home suddenly became available, Sharon fought for us with patience and temerity. Not only did she close the deal on the home, but she has since sold our lot for too. Sharon’s expertise, insight, and candor have helped us through some difficult decisions, and one thing we know for sure is working with Sharon and Dick will always be the right choice."

Jane and Steve Harb

"The absolute heart of loyalty is to value those people who tell you the truth, not just those people who tell you what you want to hear. In fact, you should value them most. Because they have paid you the compliment of leveling with you and assuming you can handle it. This is why I chose Sharon Bailey and Dick Brower."
