When two friends come together with one common goal, both doing something they love and excel at, the outcome should always be better than if each had done it alone. Rachael Wedekind and Richard A. Smith are the perfect example of this theory played out. Each became a real estate professional without a thought of partnering with someone else, but after a time of admiring each other’s skills, a chance conversation led to their decision to form a unique collaboration. As native Knoxvillians and UTK graduates, they both have generations of personal and professional connections, providing opportunities to use their expertise in all markets – from starter homes to multi-million-dollar luxury homes.
Richard began his real estate career over four decades ago and has been the Principal Broker and President of Dean-Smith Realty since its inception. Since becoming the Knoxville affiliate of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, he has been among the top selling 1% of agents nationally.
Rachael’s background, work experience and inherent nature have allowed her to excel in this business in a remarkably short period of time and in less than three years, she has placed among the top 7% of agents across the country.
