Everyone likes to think they’ll find their passion in their career, but for Ashley Keeton Francis, it’s a true reality! She loves nothing more than helping folks through different stages of their lives – whether they are a first time home buyer or a growing family, to investors seeking to improve the Knoxville community- For her, it’s more than just a business transaction! As a broker here at Realty Executives, she lives and breathes real estate and is an integral part of the Fox & Fogarty team. Having spent most of her life in Knoxville (moved here when she was 7) and roughly 15 years in the mortgage industry prior to joining our team, she loves being able to meet new people who she can call her new friends and help make Knoxville their forever home too! In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her husband and two huskies, friends and family as well as doing networking, volunteer work and cheering on the Vols no matter what sport that may be!
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 year-old Kennedy, 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!
A native Chicagoan but diehard Tennessee fan, Katie Farina enjoys cooking, brunch, Netflix, spending time with family and her boyfriend Pete. In her spare time, Katie prides herself on strike the perfect extracurricular balance – cuttin’ loose with the right karaoke number when the occasion calls for it but also taking time to appreciate the finer things, like a tall, full-bodied glass of wine (she even used to work at a winery!) And though she left that life to join the talented team at Fox & Fogarty as an Executive Assistant, she still appreciates the occasional high-end adult beverage, whether craft beer or cabernet. Oh, and fun fact: her cat Penny was born at Bearden Beer Market!
