Debra Whaley leads the Property Squad. She has held the rank of #1 agent of Realty Executives Maryville for several years and currently ranks 28th in the world in Realty Executives International, which includes over 10,000 agents in over 30 countries across the globe. That said, Debra is an expert when it comes to real estate, especially in East Tennessee!
In 2017, Debra and her daughter and fellow affiliate broker for the team, Sherry Paul, sold over $46 million in real estate, outselling several real estate offices in the area. “Because of how many transactions we have closed our clients are comforted to know we can handle any type of real estate transaction that comes our way,” Debra said.
She added, “We don’t just put a sign in your yard to list your home. We come to your home and give you a full market analysis, provide the latest in real estate trends, and even offer staging advice – all at no cost to you.”
Debra also noted that they hire a professional photographer to take photos of the home and spend a great amount of time and care crafting the perfect description for each property they list to post with their marketing, which helps draw in potential buyers to view their listings.
Debra has been named Best Real Estate Agent by The Daily Times Reader Poll for several years running and has received the Double Diamond Award of Excellence numerous times from the Knoxville Area Association of Realtors.
She also has over 200 hours of real estate education and even has the E-Pro designation, which is a comprehensive Internet certification program for real estate professionals that offers the most up-to-date real estate technology training.

“Debra is by far the best real estate agent I’ve ever worked with! She made the entire experience painless especially as I was selling my father’s house from another state. She assisted in arrangements that most other agents would have never helped one with – going well beyond the call of duty. Very prompt communicator, easy to reach and explains every detail along the way. Highly Highly Recommend!” ~ Client Review
“Our family was so fortunate to find Debra. Being a seasoned realtor, she knew everything about the area and homes. We’ve never had an agent work as hard as Debra. Thank you so much for finding our home!” ~ Client Review
“I’ve bought and sold several houses over the years, having realtors represent me as both the buyer and the seller. Debra is just different. Trust her, and be honest with her on what YOU want to do. At no time did I ever feel that Debra was focused on just the commission. I always felt she was focused on what was best for me. Best realtor experience I have ever had, hands down.” ~ Client Review
“Buying a home is never easy but Debra made every attempt to make sure our needs and wants were heard by the seller. She handled things that I never would have thought of and communicated with us every step of the way. She went above and beyond what I ever would have expected from a professional Realtor. We referred our parents to her and will refer everyone else who relocates here or asks for a local realtor. She is amazing.” ~ Client Review
“Debra Whaley is a closer! I can honestly say that no one else could have done what she did! Our family is so grateful to her and her team for their professionalism, attention to detail, and sense of urgency which resulted in the sell of our beautiful home. I will never work with or recommend anyone else but Debra for future real estate endeavors.” ~ Client Review
