Nancie was raised in South Carolina, but now is happy to call Knoxville home. She comes from an insurance background, obtaining licenses for selling life and health insurance, and being an adjuster for property claims. She later bridged over into commercial construction finance, which led her into the real estate line of work after obtaining her real estate license. With her knowledge of finance and real estate, Title Group was happy to add her as a member of our team in November 2020. After hours, she’s a passionate cook, gardener, and loves spending time with friends.
