Rachel Ray Honeycutt grew up and lived nearly 18 years in an old house that was a late-1800’s boarding house in Pleasant View, Tennessee. The wavy-glass windowpanes, the secrets of the faded, peeling wallpaper in the attic and the old well that her parents warned her to stay away from provided the impetus for her deep love of history and the stories intertwined in every old home.

Her favorite style of homes was early 1900’s farmhouse until she and her husband acquired a mid-century ranch fixer-upper and now she’s torn between the two. Ultimately, drawn to unique and well-built houses, she loves getting to work with clients in Knoxville’s first neighborhoods.

Having lived in several of Knoxville’s older neighborhoods off and on since 2003, the downtown communities in Knoxville are dear to her heart. She graduated from the University of Tennessee in 2008 with degrees in English and Philosophy and currently she lives in Holston Hills with her husband, two wild and frolicking kids, one dog, two cats, and lots of bicycles and musical instruments.

Rachel loves exploring secret places in Knoxville, mountain biking, quarry swimming, hiking and anything outdoors, thrift store shopping, and is active in community involvement having served on several boards of local organizations and loves to be active in community enrichment.

Rachel loves meeting new clients and the beauty of helping buyers find the right home and place and helping folks move to the newest phase of their lives. Buying and selling houses is more than a simple transaction of money and assets to Rachel, it is an intertwining of investment, relationships, intuition and facilitating negotiation so her clients are more than satisfied.

“Rachel is fantastic. She loves the unique stories attached to all homes, and this natural
interest in a home's history comes through in the insightful commentary she provides when
walking through one. She helped us consider things we never would have. She is also a
great communicator—not only with  clients, but also with all stakeholders throughout the
process. Our bank, for example, told us how much they enjoyed working with Rachel. Even
though we encountered several roadblocks during the process, our home buying experience
seemed effortless because of her. Thank you Rachel!”

“Rachel helped me buy my first house in 2017. She was knowledgeable about the Knoxville
market and willing to work with my wacky schedule. I would highly recommend working
with Rachel to buy your first house or your dream home!”

Mitchell, -Edgewood

"Rachel was great. She was easy to talk to and work with. She stuck with us through some tough negotiations until we were able to find our dream home."

Adesola, -Colonial Village

"Amazing. Rachel was very patient with me through the process. She knew want I was interested in and took that into consideration when sending over prospective houses. She was also very prompt in her responses and easy to get a hold of. I knew of Rachel from the biking community and am glad to continue to stay in touch with her even after our transaction. I will definitely refer her to my friends and family in the area."
