Dean Smith Realty was established in 1988 when brothers and Knoxville natives Richard and David Smith purchased the company from Dean-Planters Realty. Our roots go back to 1974 as the company originated as Jack Slagle Realty. In January 2017 Dean-Smith Realty joined the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices affiliate network. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Dean-Smith Realty still has agents that have worked under all four banners. From the beginning, Dean-Smith Realty has been a leader in the sale of houses and land in the greater Knoxville area and surrounding counties. Founded on hometown knowledge, the work ethic of the family farmer and an insatiable desire to provide expert service with honesty and professional demeanor.
