Providing Award-Winning Service to the Smoky Mountain Region

We formed The Realty-Smokies Team in 2007 with the goal of using the power of specialization to better serve our clients. At that time the real estate industry was changing in a way that we recognized would soon make it difficult for individual agents in independent brokerages to compete.

Years later we have numerous industry awards for sales and customer service (including the prestigious Century 21 President's Club) that affirm the success of our strategy: listen carefully to our clients, understand their needs, and then make meeting those needs our first priority


Jon Dempersmier
Our Listing Specialist is a native of Indiana who moved to the Smokies in 1998 and became a REALTOR® in 2002. Outside of work Jon enjoys spending time with his family and boating, hiking, traveling, and playing music – he is considered one of the finest banjo pickers in Sevier County real estate!
Beth Smith, ABR®
Our Senior Buyers Agent was born and raised in southeast England and attended University College, London. Much traveled, Beth discovered the Smokies many years ago and realized this was her place to call ‘home!’ When not helping buyers find their next home she enjoys yoga, trivia, ballroom dancing, and relaxing with her partner, Richard.
Brandi Proffitt
A local native and member of one of our area's earliest pioneer families, Brandi's extensive knowledge of the Smokies and experience in the construction industry represent a superb asset for her clientele. An avid lover of nature, she spends her free time fishing, camping, and hiking in the mountains with her husband, children, and grandchildren.
Mary Ann Bogenberger
Our Office Coordinator is a Wisconsin native with over 20 years' experience in the Real Estate industry. When not assisting our buyers and agents in their quest for the right property, Mary Ann enjoys gardening, biking, playing with her "rescue kitties," and family time with her husband, daughters, and grandson.
