Our Story

Everywhere You Want To Be

“Fantastic people to work with. Ethical, hard-working people from the office staff to the agents and everyone in between!”

Sam Oliver

“Steve Bannach made our long-distance home purchase stress free. He was the epitome of professionalism, and his attention to detail flawless. He was so accommodating, responsive, and a top-notch listener. Our transaction was essentially seamless, and Steve deserves a lot of the credit for that. Everyone at The Real Estate Firm was equally kind and professional. Special thanks to Marissa, too. We highly recommend!! Thanks again!”

Yvonne Mendelson

“Excellent property managers! Turned my very challenging 8-unit building in East Knoxville around and helped me sell it at a nice profit. Highly recommended!”

Aaron Cadle

“This agency is wonderful! As a loan officer with MIG I have personally had the pleasure of working with 3 different agents from this firm within the last 30 days. All of them were incredibly knowledgeable and amazing to work with! I highly recommend them!”

As an agent this place is a cut above the rest. As far as fair splits and fees go this is a REALLY fair place to work but keep reading. I do a lot of research before making a decision and this place was one of the best I found, but that is not why I chose to hang my license here. After talking to a few agents who worked here they genuinely said the loved it. They loved the owner Dagan and his awesome leadership. There is no lack of encouragement, support and genuine desire to make you the best agent you can be. There is such a sense of family and belonging to something bigger than yourself and it is NOT numbers-driven. If you are still not convinced that this is the place for you to hang your license then call me. I would be happy to tell you more. 100% sold that this is the best brokerage in East TN.

I just moved to The Real Estate Firm from a ‘big box’ company and as an agent I feel like I’m home! With family. And that’s a great feeling! TREF is a great place to work and all the folks are so helpful! Anyone could benefit from checking us out!
