Property Manager/Realtor
Are you looking for someone with a great deal of knowledge about our area, our schools, our business economics, and our wealth of resources? I have a Tennessee State Real Estate License and I am a graduate of Dobyns-Bennett High School and have a degree in education from ETSU. I have worked in the educational field for many years, and retired as a Principal in the Sullivan County School system. I have also owned two businesses in the Tri-Cities, and have a great deal of knowledge about the retail industry. I love working with families and would welcome the opportunity to work with you and your family to find the home of your needs and dreams. I chose Blue Ridge Properties because of their reputation of respect and dedication to each and every home buyer and seller. They have been #1 in this area for over 30 years. I will guarantee you will have my undivided attention while listening to your needs!
My name is Jessica Lovell, born and raised in the beautiful mountains of East Tennessee. Child of God, wife of Josh Lovell, and mother of four children. I enjoy spending time with family, instructing Zumba, yard work, attending church and making new friends. Buying or selling a home can be a challenge. With the obedience and care of an agent the weight can be lighter. With my attention to detail and hard work ethic, I will work diligently for you and make the process as easy as possible. Whether buying or selling, it is my goal to serve the real estate needs of my clients and customers alongside my professional family at Blue Ridge Properties. After all we aren’t just looking for a house, we are searching for a home!
