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 earliest years of what would become a large-scale revival of downtown and eventually the city neighborhoods. 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. For many years she helped buyers and seller clients in these neighborhoods herself, and she now assists her agents in doing so.

Over the years Jessica has lived in various first neighborhoods of Knoxville including Fourth and Gill and Fairmont-Emoriland. Since 2007, Jessica and her family have resided in Island Home Park in 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, volunteered for Leaders for Readers, United Way, Legacy Parks, the South Knoxville Foundation, and was voted “Top Knox Realtor” in the Knoxville Mercury for two consecutive years. Jessica loves art, interior design, reading, gardening, and music.

“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.”

Excellent purchasing experience. I have bought and sold many homes but Jessica has been the best we have partnered with!

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.

“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.”


Jessica is the perfect example of someone that you want in your corner when you are buying a home. She gave me the guidance, comfort and assurance necessary throughout the process to know that I was making the right decision. In addition to all of that, she made the journey fun. Working with Jessica is truly a pleasure.


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

“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.”


It was seamless. Jessica was our rock and handled every concern with genuine care and a sense of urgency. She coached us well on the process and we cannot be happier with the experience we had with First Neighborhood.

“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.”


“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!”

“We had a great experience with First Neighborhoods! We’ve used them to buy 2 homes and sell our home – would recommend to anyone!!”

“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.”

First Neighborhoods was great! They worked the magic behind the scenes to keep our home purchase moving along. No small feat when you’re buying a 100-year old house. Highly recommended!
