I moved to Knoxville in 2005 and fell in love with the people. Close to 15 years later and I could not imagine calling anywhere else home.
I am a single mom of two precious little girls who are my world. I try every day to be the best example to them and teach them that they can do anything they put their minds to.
A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.
Every career and life experience thus far has led me to this point. I was born to do real estate! I am at my happiest when I help others find their happy! So lets find your dream home together!
Leona was great, she showed us the area thru different listings, since we came to Knoxville for the first time looking for a home. My wife and I required a lot of her time for three straight days and she delivered. Leona was very nice but also realistic with our expectations and our original budget. We needed to spend a little more if we wanted to end up in a nice area with a house that didnt need massive amounts of work. She was right and we found the perfect home.
My husband and I have nothing but good things to say about Buying Broker Leona Skiles from Holli McCray. Leona has a fire about her when it comes to finding a client their dream home. She has an optimism and tenacity about her that is not only a great quality, but all realtors should have this personality trait. When we came in from out of state to look for a home, Leona was on the hunt. Not only did we find a home, but we found it within 5 days! We closed fast too...only 3 weeks! Holli McCray is a lucky company to have Leona on their side, as she is a great asset to all who have her as their realtor.
I want to thank Leona Skiles at the Holli McCray Group. Leona worked above and beyond to help us find our new home and did so with grace, enthusiasm and professionalism. We called her several times and she never made us feel like we were bothering her, even when we called late into the night and on weekends. When we were unable to see a potential listing she made time to check it out even when she was extremely busy. She scoured the city and put many miles on her car in efforts to find us the right property. Leona is one of the best Brokers we have had the pleasure of working with. I'm positive she can help anyone looking for a new home. Give her a call, you'll be glad you did and you might just make a new friend. I know we did.
We are so fortunate to have found Leona Skiles (with Holli McCray) as our Realtor. Living in Florida and wanting to move to Tennessee, and not being very knowledgeable of the area we wanted to move to, we knew that we would have to count on someone else to do a large portion of the legwork for us. I started looking for houses over 6 months before we were ready to move and set aside 10 houses in different areas. I then went to Tennessee, and Leona had it all lined up, we spent the entire day (and the following morning) visiting all 10 houses, and she gave us her opinion of all the different areas that the houses were located in. We never felt rushed, or that we were bothering her, she made it feel like we were the only people that mattered. Several other times between that day and the day we found the house we ended up purchasing, we asked Leona to visit another house, then another, then another. She would visit the location, give us her honest opinion of the house, and send us a dozen or more little videos of the location. It wasn't long before she knew EXACTLY what we were looking for. When she visited that last one we had sent her to, she told us if you are not going to buy this house, I will". We knew we then found the right house. During the purchase process, through the closing, she was right there with us even though we were 10 hours drive time away. She took great care of us, never leaving us in the dark. I am so very glad that we found her!
Leona is a hard working agent but she's so much more than that. She worked sleepless days helping us find the best first house for what little we had to offer. She was able to see a way to get us our dream house through her expertise and experience, through analyzing a situation and turning it into destiny, sort of like hacking in my world. I mean, I solve problems for a living but what she was able to do in order to make us happy was beyond anything I could ever imagine. We had many great adventures and good times, definitely a memory I can never forget as first time home owners. She's definitely at the right job, and she's super amazing and professional. I cannot say enough great things about this woman.
