Meet Fox & Fogarty

Tyler Fogarty

Head Listing Agent/Team Leader

If you have only ever worked with Tyler Fogarty, you have likely only met “professional” Tyler. Hard-working, efficient, friendly, and eternally committed to getting the job done, Tyler is, like Joe, ranked among the best brokers in the state! But quietly, Tyler has another side. A natural-born left-brainer, he is an incredibly talented photographer, and in the little spare time he has, enjoys indulging that talent across the globe with his better half, Marianna. From the Grand Canyon to Wyoming, Japan to the Gulf of Mexico, Tyler refuses to leave this world without experiencing every iota of it, which most don’t know considering how hard he works every day to bring folks home in East Tennessee. Yes, as they say, there are two sides to any coin, but rarely are both sides so freakin’ awesome. To put it as Tyler might, he’s sorta like a more sophisticated Bruce Banner/The Hulk. In fact, you should ask him about his well-managed obsession with comic books when you hire him to list your home. But do it quickly, because he’ll probably sell that sucker in a day or two! Tyler and his wife just recently welcomed their first born to the world. They are excited to be parents and are loving these first few months!

Joe Fox

Commercial Agent

Despite the fact that Joe Fox consistently operates in the top 1% of his field and market, it’d be almost irresponsible to say he is JUST a real estate broker. Because Joe is really more a staple to the Knoxville community than he is any one thing. Certainly, he spends his days, dawn to dusk, working his butt off to put folks through the front door of their perfect home, but somehow, all the while he manages to dramatically change his community around him for the better. Joe works with anyone and everyone to transform low-income neighborhoods throughout Knoxville, raises money every week through the various charities with whom he works, and is always thinking one step ahead of everybody else when it comes to the newest and biggest project around town. If you know Joe at all, then you probably already know about the exciting project he has in the works!

Ashley Francis

Head Buyer’s Agent/Listing Agent

Everyone likes to think they’ll find their passion in their career, but for Ashley Keeton Francis, it’s a true reality!   She loves nothing more than helping folks through different stages of their lives – whether they are a first time home buyer or a growing family, to investors seeking to improve the Knoxville community- For her, it’s more than just a business transaction!  As a broker here at Realty Executives, she lives and breathes real estate and is an integral part of the Fox & Fogarty team.  Having spent most of her life in Knoxville (moved here when she was 7) and roughly 15 years in the mortgage industry prior to joining our team, she loves being able to meet new people who she can call her new friends and help make Knoxville their forever home too!  In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her husband Lee and two huskies, friends and family as well as doing networking, volunteer work and cheering on the Vols no matter what sport that may be! Ashley and her husband are absolutely glowing these days as they are having fun raising their beautiful daughter, Eliza!

Luke Kendziorski

Buyer’s Agent/Listing Agent/Rehab Specialist

A super savvy real estate broker and surprisingly agile former college volleyball player, Luke Kendziorski is Fox & Fogarty’s favorite import. Originally from Lake Orion, Michigan, Luke moved to Knoxville a few years back to explore the booming and fertile real estate market, and was beyond pleasantly surprised with the community he found and the friends he made (the craft beer and pizza didn’t hurt, either). Anyone who has even met Luke in passing could tell you he is now as enthusiastic about UT football and the Knoxville community as anyone who’s lived here their whole life, and his goal is to make that community the best it can be. An integral part of the Fox & Fogarty team, Luke’s only pitfall is his vaguely Canadian accent, which he swears he’s working hard to rid himself of. At any rate, Luke’s here to stay, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him! Sure, he’s only about as half as cool as his wife Amy, but if you know Amy, that’s still pretty darn cool!

Scott Crammond

Buyer’s Agent/Listing Agent

Scott is another steal from the alcohol industry. He has been with Blackhorse Brewing Company for the last 3 years. Though he still enjoys local craft beer, he is now trading in kegs for houses . As a native Ohioan, Scott grew up in Toledo and graduated with a history degree from The Ohio State University in 2011 (Go Bucks!). He moved to Knoxville in 2012 to attend graduate school at UT. Since then, Scott has called Knoxville home, and is getting ready for a big wedding to his beautiful fiance. In his free time you can find Scott walking his dogs Hildie and Crush around North Knoxville, skate boarding at the Knoxville Skatepark, or hanging out at one of Knoxville’s local breweries.  He is excited to bring his skills and personality to the Fox & Fogarty team!

Carolina Coppinger

Buyer’s Agent/ Listing Agent

Carolina is a passionate Buyer’s specialist on our team. Not only will she find you a great home and protect you during the buying process, but she will make sure you will have a great time! Carolina was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia, but now calls Knoxville her home with her daughter Maddie. Carolina is a lifetime Vol and alum of UT. After graduating she started working in property management and worked in student housing for more than 9 years. Carolina is our resident native Spanish speaker and loves working with first time home buyers who might have a language barrier with other real estate agents. Carolina is a also a Disney fanatic! She visited Disney World 4 times last year. Her daughter only went twice! She also loves to dance and even taught salsa while she was a student at UT. Fox and Fogarty is ecstatic to have Carolina on our team, and we know you will love having her as your agent!

Christin Byram

Office Manager/Transaction Coordinator

She left distillery life and the moonshine biz to join our fantastic team at Fox & Fogarty. Outside of the office, she loves live music!  You’ll often see her and her husband Colby dancing the night away downtown. With a culinary background, she also has a passion for food, especially donuts so if you ever need donut advice, this is the gal to ask! Originally from Atlanta, she’s grown to call Knoxville home for over the past twelve years.

Katie Farina

Marketing Director

Katie was born in Chicago and raised in Knoxville. After graduating from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Advertising, Katie worked for multiple marketing agencies in town. With no real plan in place, Katie moved to North Carolina with her boyfriend Peter where they explored Western North Carolina breweries and wineries. Ask Katie about the boutique winery she used to work at – she loves telling stories about harvest! After a couple years of playing in NC, the other side of the mountains were calling Katie back to Knoxville where she joined the talented Fox & Fogarty Team as the Executive Assistant and shortly after, the Marketing Coordinator. Katie is a big foodie and is always down for brunch or trying the newest restaurants/bars in town – check out her instagram! In her spare time, Katie enjoys cooking at home, spending time with family, attending live music shows, and supporting her bearded fella’s brewery, Printshop Beer Co!

Rebecca Smith

Admin Assistant

A Fox & Fogarty faithful since January 2012, Rebecca has seen it all! She is the team coach, OG Admin, and the one who started a lot of the systems we have in place now. Most importantly Rebecca handles all of the bookkeeping and keeps us on track. Though she obviously finds passion in real estate, her greatest love is her family – adoring husband, daughter Kennedy, newborn Barrett, along with a much larger extended family – all comprise a very tight-knit group! They are active in their church and, of course, all love the Vols! The Fox & Fogarty Team is lucky to have her!

Brandi Baty

Transaction Coordinator

Brandi worked front desk at the REA Bearden Office almost a year before she joined our team. She is well-versed in the real estate business and is the technology guru! Being an all-star team player comes from 12 years in competitive cheerleading. As a Knoxville native, she met and fell in love with her other half, Justin, and is a total rockstar mom to identical twin boys, Grant and Owen. She loves iced coffee and single handily keeps Dunkin Donuts in business. Watch out Marie Kondo because this girl can organize anything! She takes great pride in everything she does, and for that we are glad to have her on our team!
