It’s been about a year since I started casual conversations with one of my best friends, superstar Realtor Brandon Hutchison, about how cool it would be to join forces.
Since we met in a transaction back in 2009, we’ve been great friends – I was very happy when he called in 2012 and asked how I liked working with Keller Williams and whether I’d be interested in being his ‘sponsor’ in joining the company. From there he grew into the professional with excellent reputation that he’s gained through years of hard, consistent and thoughtful work. In my 15 years of Knoxville Real Estate I’ve known nobody better!
So in 2016 when he broached the idea of creating a team of close friends that would grow into the Hutch & Howard team I was intrigued. Since I had joined KW several years ago I had been invited to join teams, I even had a very brief stint with a burgeoning husband/wife team that has since grown into something great – but wasn’t a perfect fit for me personally.
This was something different – Brandon wanted a true partnership, something outside the scope of Keller Williams’ normal team structure. I say I was intrigued – in hindsight I should’ve been giddy. This young man with plenty of achievements on his own – who had created a structure incorporating well- designed marketing, client service and a fantastic professional reputation was asking to ‘throw in’ was a godsend. I’m personally more motivated, excited to come to the office every day and looking for new ways to help my friends / clients and future clients.
This week we were excited to welcome another wonderful friend, Carrie Mays, who had been serving as our ‘boss’ for the past few years, serving as our Broker. In a lot of ways she’s still our boss – taking the reigns as Director of Operations.
When joining forces, Brandon came with his amazing brother Dustin Hutchison, our marketing powerhouse and a since officially joining forces, our team has many other pieces poised to fall into place – keep an eye on Hutch & Howard!
