I, too, am a lifelong resident of the Sequatchie Valley. I have been in the real estate field for over 30 years: however, you could say that I have been in real estate all my life. I tagged along on my father’s real estate ventures as a child. James “Ham” Kelly was in the business for over 60 years, and I learned a great deal about the industry from him. Because of such a long history, I have had experience in all types of transactions including residential, commercial, large tracts, timber tracts, and mining tracts. The most valuable lesson I learned from him was that all clients should be treated with honesty and respect. I strive to live up to that with each client I meet. In my free time, I enjoy time with my family, especially my three grandchildren. I also enjoy travelling, camping, and fishing.
