Stephanie Grubbs was a hairdresser for 20 years. She decided to make the switch to real estate seven years ago. Stephanie works for Heritage Realty as a real estate agent and property manager. Her specialty is residential sales in Knox County. Moreover, she sets herself apart by spending extra time on staging and making sure properties are well above presentable for showings. There’s a lot of stress involved in real estate, and Stephanie says her job is “to take on that stress so [her] clients don’t have to.”
Courtney Sanford is another example of someone who switched careers to pursue real estate. She used to be an elementary school teacher. After taking time off to have twins last fall, she decided to join Coldwell Banker Wallace. Her situation is unique as she works on her father-in-law’s team, the Bobby Sanford Group. Courtney says it’s helpful to have someone to work with who has 15 years of experience. Her mindset is that the home is her favorite place, and she wants to help other people find their favorite place too.
Mother-in-law to Courtney Sanford, Kim Sanford owns WattsBoyd Reporting. WattsBoyd is a court reporting firm in Knoxville since 1988. She is excited to join her husband at the Bobby Sanford Group with Coldwell Banker Wallace. Kim is known for her enthusiasm, attention to detail, and knowledge of real estate.

A real estate professional for 19 years, Anne Williams has many years of experience. She served as the Principal Broker of the Farragut Office at Coldwell Banker Wallace for five years. Now, she trains agents. Anne explains that the pandemic threw CBW a curve ball, and they had to adapt. Their new Onboarding Concierge position allowed them to do just that. CBW now has the tools to prepare real estate agents to handle the ever-changing real estate world especially post-2020.
