Tyler Fogarty
Tyler Fogarty

Broker | Team Leader

Tyler has been in the Real Estate business 14 years and worked on over 1,000 transactions. He leads a team of 10 agents and staff who work around the clock to help create value in our Knoxville community in a multitude of ways. If you have only ever worked with Tyler Fogarty, you have likely only met “professional” Tyler. Hard-working, efficient, friendly, and eternally committed to getting the job done, Tyler is, like Joe, ranked among the best brokers in the state! But quietly, Tyler has another side. A natural-born left-brainer, he is an incredibly talented photographer, and in the little spare time he has, enjoys indulging that talent across the globe with his better half, Marianna. From the Grand Canyon to Wyoming, Japan to the Gulf of Mexico, Tyler refuses to leave this world without experiencing every iota of it, which most don’t know considering how hard he works every day to bring folks home in East Tennessee. Yes, as they say, there are two sides to any coin, but rarely are both sides so freakin’ awesome. To put it as Tyler might, he’s sorta like a more sophisticated Bruce Banner/The Hulk. In fact, you should ask him about his well-managed obsession with comic books when you hire him to list your home. But do it quickly, because he’ll probably sell that sucker in a day or two! Tyler and Marianna have three beautiful boys who are on their way to being the next greatest real estate agents in Knoxville!

Joe Fox
Joe Fox

Commercial Agent

Despite the fact that Joe Fox consistently operates in the top 1% of his field and market, it’d be almost irresponsible to say he is JUST a real estate broker. Because Joe is really more a staple to the Knoxville community than he is any one thing. Certainly, he spends his days, dawn to dusk, working his butt off to put folks through the front door of their perfect home, but somehow, all the while he manages to dramatically change his community around him for the better. Working with anyone and everyone to transform low-income neighborhoods throughout Knoxville? Sure. Raising thousands of dollars every week through the various charities with whom he works? Duh. Joe has two kiddos that he loves dearly, Brooklyn and Finn, and has the biggest smile on his face when they are around!

Bubbly, fun, and always smiling, Ashley Francis, or “the Mayor of Knoxville”, as her husband likes to playfully call her since she knows basically EVERYBODY, is a broker for Fox & Fogarty and an integral part of our team. Her experience and commitment to bringing folks home – whether a first time home buyer, a growing family, or an investor seeking to improve the Knoxville community – is second to none and ranks her as one of the best in her field! In her spare team, she enjoys hanging with the girls, walking her Huskie Rambo, the beach, volunteer work, and spending time with her family. Ashley and Lee are loving life with their adorable daughter Eliza right by their side. ABR, SRS, RENE Certified

Since then, Scott has called Knoxville home. In his free time you can find Scott hanging out with his beautiful wife Alyssa, walking his dogs Hildie and Crush around North Knoxville, skate boarding at the Knoxville Skatepark, running the occasional marathon, running with the SlowKno Running Club on Tuesday nights (6:30pm at Suttree Landing Park), or hanging out at one of Knoxville’s local breweries.

Katie Farina
Katie Farina

Marketing Director

Katie was originally born in Illinois, but has spent most of her life right here in Knoxville! Katie went to the University of Tennessee where she majored in Advertising and minored in Business. After living in North Carolina for almost 2 years, working at a winery, Katie was extremely homesick and moved back to Knoxville. Drinking beer and wine throughout Western North Carolina was certainly a fun time, but Katie wanted to get back to her roots. Shortly after her return, Katie joined the Fox & Fogarty Team as an Admin Assistant and quickly showed her talents in Marketing and Advertising. She is a free spirit, quirky type that loves having a good time at the office and outside. Katie loves her local community and is a big supporter of small business. She even helped open up a brewery here in Knoxville. In her free time Katie enjoys cooking and baking, playing with her cat, playing video games and board games, tending to her house plant babies, being a Silent Disco DJ, boogying to live music around town, eating and drinking her way through local Knoxville businesses, and spending time with her big family and bearded fella, Peter.

Rebecca Smith
Rebecca Smith

Administrative Assistant

A Fox & Fogarty faithful since January 2012, Rebecca Smith is Tyler and Joe’s photog extraordinaire. A big part of selling real estate is making homes look the best they can possibly look and with Rebecca’s keen eye and finger on the shutter, it’s a snap! Though she obviously finds passion in real estate, her greatest love is her family – adoring husband and two children (Kennedy and Barrett), along with a much larger extended family – all comprise a very tight-knit group! They are active in their church and, of course, all love the Vols! Rebecca also handles bookkeeping for Fox & Fogarty and we are lucky to have her!
