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.
