Meet Sally Sparks

Sally Sparks with her dog MaiseyAs a long-time top-producing Century 21 agent in Knoxville, Sally Sparks knows a thing or two about real estate. Sally has 12 years of experience working with buyers and sellers in the East Tennessee area. She claims she was born into the business, since her father sold real estate, and her husband, Bob, is also a local Real Estate Broker.

Sally actively contributes to her community by serving as the Knoxville Area Association of Realtors (KAAR) 2015 President, and is currently serving as a Director and Officer for the local Association. Her record extends to the KAAR committees also, where she served on committees for Grievance, Technology, Bylaws and Strategic planning. Such roles allow Sally to continuously improve and enhance her business aptitude, making her one of the most knowledgeable and respected sources of real estate expertise in the Knoxville area.

Sally’s dedication to her business has also garnered her many awards for professionalism, excellence and client satisfaction. Her clients consistently rate her at 98% on average in post-closing satisfaction surveys for her ability to deliver consistent results and help clients find a home that they love. She also earned the Knoxville Area Association of Realtors Hall of Fame Award, which is granted only after five consecutive years of receiving the Five Star Professionalism Award. All recipients of the Award must satisfy strict criteria in several categories including Association involvement, continuing education, professional participation, community outreach, charitable giving and client satisfaction.

Sally believes that working with an experienced Realtor is one of the most important things a homebuyer can do to make the home-buying experience successful. “Getting connected at the start with the best lenders, home inspectors and other service providers is crucial,” she says, and Sally is uniquely prepared to bring these necessary connections to her clients.
