When we decided to sell our house, we thought selling it by owner would make the best financial sense. Houses in our neighborhood were selling quickly! I actually got an offer without putting a sign in the yard, but quickly realized I had no idea if I had asked the right amount or how to negotiate with a buyer’s realtor. I called Debaran and she had a sign in the yard the next day and it sold that week for a better price. Listing with her took all the worry out of my hands and I was able to concentrate on moving. I cannot recommend The Hughes Properties highly enough.

Tom Hughes is friendly, professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him. What more can I say? Great service.

Spencer and Carrie Rakes

Tom was outstanding with understanding what we were looking for. He was very patient with us as we viewed home with him for 3 months.

Scott and Brittney Barb

Debaran was extremely professional and helped facilitate the purchase of our new home with ease. She made the transition from out of state to Knoxville painless and her knowledge base of the market extends well beyond what is expected. She has continued to provide us with helpful information as we adjust to the city and look forward to working with her again in the near future.

Matthew & Erin Wallen

We were very pleased with our experience with Debaran serving as our buyer’s agent. She understood the home qualities that were important to us and was patient, responsive, proactive, knowledgeable and fun to work with. Her familiarity with the market and ability to compare/contract properties therein was extremely helpful, and her commitment to serving our interests was apparent. Certainly recommend and will call again in the future.

Beth Foster

“Tom Hughes was a fantastic advocate and agent for us as buyers. He was patient as we considered many options and he was very helpful at pointing out important considerations without being opinionated or leading. We weighed all our options carefully, thanks many time to using Tom’s expertise and attention to factors we may not have even considered. In addition to being a “real estate pro,” Tom is a nice person who is genuinely a pleasure to work with. Every step of the process, even once we were under contract, Tom was responsive and accommodating. What was also extremely impressive to us was how he continued to represent us after the sale was final. Tom saw the deal through and then worked to make sure were happy and satisfied, even sending contractors to finish outstanding repairs that had been overlooked by the sellers. We believe Tom went above and beyond to make sure that we found the perfect home – which we did! We couldn’t be more satisfied.”

Jim and Jan Sullivan

“Debaran Hughes was most efficient. She always returned our call and did all we asked for. Debaran was aware of our medical situation and was very kind and considerate. She did an excellent job at the closing and took care of us. She was very protective and watchful of all our needs. We will always recommend her to all!”

Jane Nelson

“Debaran was fully engaged & most helpful in letting me know how to stage my home to show well. She pursued all options and ultimately sold my home in a relatively short time frame. Debaran provided contacts for moving, repair work & for basically any assistance needed. Her sources for help were excellent too. I would gladly, and without reservations, recommend The Hughes Properties to sell your home.”

Matt and Melissa Adkins

“It was a pleasure getting to know Tom and having him as our Realtor. I would highly recommend Tom because of his professionalism and remarkable work ethic! We love our home!”

Betty Finley

“As a first time seller, I had a lack of Real Estate experience so I was concerned about the process. I knew about Debaran because she sold property for several of my neighbors, so when I was ready to put my house on the market in April 2015, the first Realtor I thought about was Debaran. From our first meeting to the last, Debaran was very helpful, professional, aggressive and kept me informed. She had my house on the market and sold within three months. I will definitely recommend The Hughes Properties to anyone needing to buy or sell a home, as they will make the experience very easy.”               

Bill and Marsha Priester

“Debaran is a very experienced and knowledgeable agent with a unique ability to manage a sometimes difficult sales process while clearly defining her clients goals.”

Barbara Hillard

“Debaran could not have been more professional or helpful. She answered my calls promptly and got back to me with answers to my questions. I could not have asked for more!”

Jason and Amanda Hall

“Debaran was very knowledgeable of the market, patient and incredibly professional. She guided us careful and thoughtful through the entire home buying process. From helping us find a home that we love, to working with us during negotiations – she was responsive, helpful and most importantly, a very honest and good person. We would highly recommend her to anyone we know listing or buying a home.”

David and Renee Sprouse

“Thank goodness for The Hughes Properties! We were in a tough situation, we had bought a house that we loved but still had our home on the market, stressful! Our house had been listed for a few months without many bites, that was when we called Debaran. We knew she could get the job done! Debaran was so helpful in telling us specific things we needed to do to have our home ready for the next buyer and all of those things worked and they worked quickly! We appreciate everything The Hughes Properties did to sell our home and get us into our new one.”

Bill and Amee Oldham

Dr. and Mrs. Jerry Punch

“Tom and Debaran Hughes were amazing! Their professionalism, aggressive approach, due diligence and attention to detail were remarkable. From the time they listed our home, marketed it and sold it so quickly, all the way to helping us located and purchase a new home, they were magnificent! They made what should have been a very stressful and difficult process, so much easier. Joni and I have told many of our dearest friends, if you want to buy or sell a home, give Tom and Debaran a call. They are simply THE BEST!”

Dr. and Mrs. Herman Botero

“Tom did a great job showing us all the homes we wanted to see and more in a very limited amount of time. He went out of his way to accommodate our schedules as were traveling in to see home for a few days. Debaran also helped when Tom was “unavailable” (hospitalized) and picked up his work without missing a beat. We are very happy in our new home and couldn’t have asked for a better family to work with us on this monumental task of finding a home in a new, unfamiliar state. Thanks again Tom and Debaran for extending yourselves to us on our search.”

Brooke and Jon Foulk
“We were so blessed to have the Hughes family guide us through this process on a recommendation from a friend. Uprooting life from Johnson City with three kids under 6, Debaran made the transition much better. She had the inside scoop on this   difficult market and made things happen quickly and easily. She is hands-down AMAZING at what she does and we’re so thankful to have found her. We will definitely recommend Tom and Debaran to friends!”

Elizabeth Farr

Matt Reed

“Tom and Debaran did a fantastic job selling our house. They made great suggestions when we first listed the house. We quickly had several offers, including one above asking price. Closing was a painless process that Tom and Debaran assisted with throughout every phase. I would highly recommend the Hughes to anyone buying or selling a home.”

Scott and Mackenzie Everett

“Our experience with The Hughes Properties was amazing. Debaran was not only very easy to work with, she also communicated with us constantly. She was our eyes and ears as our property was for sale after we relocated to AL. We trusted her knowledge to get our home sold. We would definitely use The Hughes Properties again and recommend them to others. Great experience!”

Bob and Leslie Randle

“Debaran was very knowledgeable about the Knoxville area. Honesty and integrity was always evident during our search for our new home. The process of purchasing our home ran smoothly because of the guidance of Debaran. If we were to move again we would not hesitate in contacting the Hughes Properties. Thank you!”

Eleanor Nichols

I was pleased my home sold so quickly. Tom was very professional. I am also pleased with the house I bought.”

Teri Foster and Donna Allen

“Debaran was outstanding! Although our property was not in the price range with the majority of the Hughes Properties, we received service of the highest type. We took her advice on staging our home and it was highly effective. We sold our home in 5 days with 3 offers that day and it sold for $2000 over asking price! She helped us find a property to buy that exactly met our needs and cost less than we expected! Our original referral came from a family member who has used her 3 times.”
