Jessica has lived and worked solely in Knoxville’s historic districts since graduating from the University of Tennessee in 2003. During and immediately after her time at UT she worked for an architect and developer in downtown Knoxville during the early years of what would become a large scale revival of downtown. The tight-knit community feel of the downtown residential scene sparked a passion that quickly led her to the surrounding historic neighborhoods. It was there that she saw the opportunity to continue the downtown movement and a need for professional services to help the historic neighborhoods reach their full potential. Ever since, she has been helping buyers find the perfect fit, and sellers realize the value of their unique homes.

Dealing only in the historic first neighborhoods surrounding the city has allowed Jessica to gain a deep understanding of her market and the unique issues that come with older homes. Add to that a solid grasp of historic construction and renovation and Jessica brings an uncommon and highly useful base of knowledge and experience to the agents of First Neighborhoods to help them better serve their clients.

Jessica and her family are proud residents of one of Knoxville’s first neighborhoods; they live in Island Home Park where they are renovating their 1915 Craftsman. She is currently the board president of Keep Knoxville Beautiful, has served on the boards of Knox Heritage, the Island Home Park Neighborhood Association, the 100 Block Neighborhood Association, and was voted “Top Knox Realtor” in the Knoxville Mercury in both 2015 and 2016. She deeply loves art, interior design, reading, and gardening.

"Jessica sold us a house in Mechanicsville and I liked her so much I listed my house in Holston Hills with her too. She knows what she's talking about, is super professional, and was upfront and clear with us throughout the process. She's also super cool. Highly recommend."

Liz, -Mechanicsville

"Jessica is a complete professional with excellent knowledge of the market. Her assistance during the marketing and sales process was invaluable. We always recommend her to friends looking for or looking to sell in the close in neighborhoods."

Cathie, -Island Home Park

"I adored working with Jessica Rodocker at First Neighborhoods Realty. She was attentive and helpful throughout our first time home buying experience. She made everything easy!"

Manya, -Holston Hills

"Fantastic! Jessica is a true professional and made our experience wonderful!"

Jennifer, -Fourth and Gill

"Jessica was great at guiding us--first-time home buyers--through the process and helping us ask the right questions. She found good places for us to look at and helped us consider the reality of different types of houses and neighborhoods. Her knowledge of real estate and Knoxville itself would be useful to home buyers at any level of experience, and she is lovely to work with. We would definitely want to work with her again."

Meg, -Fairmont-Emoriland

"We have worked with other realtors in Knoxville, but no one as professional and savvy as Jessica Rodocker and her team. They have the inside scoop on our historical Knoxville neighborhood and were able to let us know about several upcoming sales before they hit the market (one of which we purchased). The sale itself was complex because the seller was a relocation company, but Jessica was unfazed by the extra complications and she guided us through the home-buying process expertly. We loved working with her so much that we asked her to sell our old house too—which several other big-name local realtors previously failed to do—and she was able to find a buyer within two weeks. I still ask for her advice on contractors for repairs and improvements to our new home as her knowledge of reputable local companies is extensive. Jessica is realistic and straightforward, and it was clear from the beginning that she cared about our best interests and not just making the sale. We could not be happier with our experience!"

Jennifer, -Old North

"We are so happy to have worked with Jessica Rodocker to sell our home in Fourth and Gill. She is knowledgeable about the neighborhood and has the ability to reach a wide audience of potential buyers. Jessica was always available to answer our questions and guide the sale along."

Nina, -Fourth and Gill

"We closed on a great historic home in April and we could not be happier! Jessica with FNR was our buyer's-agent for the purchase. She was very professional, patient, and engaged throughout the process..."

Allison, -Fourth and Gill

"Jessica Rodocker is without a doubt one of the most skilled, attentive and hard-working realtors in the entire region. She provided valuable remodeling insight as we prepared to sell our home and, when listed, had a buyer in less than a week. She is easy to work with and stays in solid contact while effortlessly navigating the sometimes choppy waters of a home purchase - always with your best interests in mind. If you are considering a realtor, don't hesitate to contact her at First Neighborhoods."

Watson, -West Hills

"Jessica knew we were on the lookout for a house with a ton of character that we could renovate. She showed us a few houses that we found on the internet, but pointed us in the direction of the house we ended up purchasing. She's a pro at navigating through all of the real estate processes and was in our corner for the duration."

Heather, -Parkridge

"We could not have been happier working with Jessica. She was as knowledgeable, responsive, organized, and punctual as we could have wanted in a realtor. She truly made the process of buying our new home and selling our old one as simple and low-stress as it could possibly have been."

Cullen, -Old North Knoxville

"Jessica is knowledgeable, professional and just plain fun to work with. She knows the neighborhood and the market in general. Jessica was responsive to our needs and really knows the process. Most of all, she was both an honest and calming voice."

Lee, -Island Home Park

"We had a great experience with First Neighborhoods! We've used them to buy 2 homes and sell our home - would recommend to anyone!!"
