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 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 wife, Celeste, 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, second home or investment property, she enjoys yoga, trivia, ballroom dancing, and relaxing with her partner, Richard.
Paul Sutton
A native of Wales and graduate of the University of the West of England, Paul came to the Smokies from Florida after years of visiting. Licensed in both states, his dedication to his buyers results in lots of return business. His time outside of the office is kept busy raising two teenage sons with his wife, Diana.
