In 2008 Jay’s focus changed to strictly being a Gatlinburg realtor primarily working with overnight cabin rental investment buyers.

Jay resides in the beautiful Waldens Creek area after living in Wears Valley, Boyds Creek, and Kodak. He enjoys hiking, fishing, and anything involving cabins, investing or land. The real estate business must be in his blood – as his parents are both successful Realtors. Jim, his dad, has been in real estate in Central Ohio since 1973, and his mom, Sue, for over 30 years!
