About Us

Serving the Tri-Cities Area Since 1975

Russ Swanay Real Estate was founded in 1975. At the time, that made Russ one of the youngest broker / owners in Tennessee.

From its beginning, Russ Swanay Real Estate has concentrated on the quality rather than the quantity of our listings. We make every effort to properly and responsibly advise both buyers and sellers as to pricing, staging, and current market conditions. Our efforts have resulted in our firm consistently selling between 80% to 90% of our listing inventory.

State-Of-The-Art Selling Strategies

We keep abreast of the latest marketing techniques in the real estate industry, and we advertise our properties on all available real estate websites. In addition, each property is included in the area Multiple Listing Service (MLS), thereby making it available to all other area realtors and improving its exposure.

We believe that all properties are special and that each deserves to be advertised and promoted in a way that maximizes the benefits it has to offer. Our firm is noted for our detailed, almost poetic descriptions of our properties, always complemented with extensive photographic images.

Financing Options and Auction Services

Russ Swanay Real Estate makes every effort to keep up to date about all available financing opportunities that might be available to home buyers. Our knowledge of just how to get a particular buyer the financing they need leads to that buyer’s dreams of a new home becoming a reality.

We also offer our clients the services of an auctioneer. David Collins is a licensed auctioneer and has successfully auctioned many homes, commercial properties, estates, land, and large farms within the Tri-Cities area. Along with a full auction staff, David is available to assist those clients whose best or preferred method of selling is through a licensed and experienced auction company.

Delivering Honesty and Competence

Russ Swanay Real Estate is located in and conducts business daily in a charming, quaint little town in the mountains of East Tennessee. Our firm offers a friendly atmosphere in which you’ll feel comfortable in conducting your real estate business. Our company is locally owned.

This, coupled with a reputation for honesty and competence that the firm has earned throughout over four decades of conducting business within the community, has proven to be Russ Swanay Real Estate’s greatest, most treasured asset.
