Get to Know Richard Barbee

If you need a professional real estate broker in the Knoxville area, I am ready to serve.

I am a native of East TN.  I earned my B.A. and M.Ed. at Carson-Newman College.  I will soon have my Ph.D. from Amridge University.

I am the very proud father of two hearty, smart, good boys.  They are my motivation and inspiration.

In my free time, I enjoy practicing martial arts (Muay Thai and BJJ), lifting weights, hiking, camping, reading, and more.  I love to laugh, watch cartoons, play games, and listen to music (from Marvin Gaye to Gospel to Hip Hop to Bluegrass).

I take pride in whatever I do.  I want to do it well.  I am something of a perfectionist in that sense.

I write for 5 local papers.  I have always enjoyed the writing process.


With a strong academic background, I have pursued a number of experiences in my professional life.  I worked for 10 years as a therapist and social worker.  I value service to others.  As a Realtor, I have logged over 500 hours of professional training and achieved Broker status.

I have earned the GRI, ABR, and CRS designations.  I am working on my CCIM (completed 3 of 5 classes and most of commission requirements).  I enjoy working with new construction, downsizing to condos, and first-time buyers.  With commercial, I enjoy listing raw land and helping businesses find lease locations.


Residential & Commercial Real Estate Broker with 8+ years of experience. Customer Service, Integrity, and Expertise are my priorities. I will serve your referrals with sincerity and honesty.
