My family relocated to Knoxville and Dave Corum made the process easy. We tend to be a little particular and so finding the right house was not a quick or simple task, but Dave was patient and helped us find a diamond in the rough and negotiate a fair price. He went above and beyond by introducing us to some great contractors who are transforming the property. We are incredibly thankful for his support and assistance. We wholeheartedly recommend David to anyone wanting to purchase or sell a home. – Will Nulton

Dave was exceptional from start to finish! He was there every step of the way in this stressful time. He was very clear and honest about everything. He sold my house faster than I could have ever imagined and for a better price than expected. He was very knowledgeable about every aspect in this process. I would recommend him to anybody, and I will be using him in buying my new home as well. He definitely goes above an beyond. – Rita

Dave was awesome in every way! It was the first time I had ever sold a home and was very nervous about it and he put me at ease from the get-go. The house was only on the market less than two weeks before we had a great offer and I love the new owners! He made every step of the process so understandable and so easy that I never worried at all! I will definitely tell everybody I know about Dave and his wonderful work! – Betty Blanton

Dave did a magnificent job in all phases of the sale of this property! This sale initiated as a cold call from Dave asking if I wanted to sell my lot in Grande Vista Bay. He informed me on the initial call that he had a potential buyer. Dave provided a great overview on the realities of the market for lakefront property in the Knoxville area. After several discussions and negotiations Dave had with the buyer and me, we were able to arrive at an equitable price for both the buyer and me. He was excellent in keeping me informed throughout this process on what would be reasonable pricing given what I wanted out of the sale and the limits the buyer had. As part of this sale, there were certain variances that the buyers had to have from TVA in order for the sale to go through. Through a lot of discussions and meetings with the POA for Grande Vista Bay and multiple TVA representatives, he was able to secure the variances for the buyer. When it was time for doing the closing, Dave enlisted the efforts of Vanessa Hirschhorn of Crown Title. She was excellent as well. She was very concise and prompt in sending the paperwork and updating us on the status as we went through the 6 changes to the closure date. I highly recommend her as well. The bottom line is that Dave did a terrific job in contract negotiation, working with TVA and establishing the framework in conjunction with Vanessa for the final closing. All of this was complicated by having both the buyers and sellers remote. A lot of thanks to Dave and Vanessa for their diligence and comprehensive work efforts in completing this sale. It certainly was an enjoyable sales experience as the seller. – Gary & Janet Harlan

Dave did a great job communicating to us through the process and it helped that he had a lot of experience in the development we were interested. Vanessa at Crown Title was also very helpful in the closing process especially since we live out of state. – Mark Altimier

My husband and I were moving from Alabama to Knoxville TN. We hadn’t had the best luck in finding a home and I wanted to see a different realtor our realtor from Alabama put us in contact with an office in Knoxville. We meant with Dave and we instantly clicked and instead getting “No!” Every time I asked a question his reply was “we will find you a house that’s right for your family!” He went above and beyond having a toddler and expecting. He gave us names of daycares and doctors and did research for me for the best places for our kids. He found us the best home and the best area for our children. We loved working with him and he got us the best deal and really genuinely cared about our needs as his clients. I highly recommend him! He will not disappoint you! – The Nguywen’s

My husband and I were moving from out of state. We had a very specific idea of what we wanted and no idea of where to look. Many people told us we would have to get several realtors to get the job done. Dave was completely awesome!! Not only was he able to show us anything we wanted no matter when, or how far he had to drive between places, but he was very knowledgeable about multiple areas. He was a Great negotiator. We needed a lot of help and had many questions as we were out of state. Dave never hesitated! He found answers and help for everything! His only fault is he works to hard! He has a great personality, was professional and a pleasure to deal with. We couldn’t have met a better person! – Ang

You probably don’t see too many reviews for a realtor from the buyer in the transaction, but this is one of them. I represented myself in a fairly small real estate purchase where Dave represented the sellers. Dave was professional, incredibly speedy in gathering information from the sellers and treated this transaction(s) as if it was a multi-million dollar deal. Dave went out of his way to meet me in an Applebee’s parking lot at 9pm at night so that contracts could be signed. It was also during a UT football game (ha!). I never felt that Dave pressuring me at all for a decision which was refreshing as my last TN real estate purchase was a disaster. The paperwork was completed quickly, accurately and made for a very speedy closing. I will say this, if I need a realtor in the Knoxville area, Dave will be my guy and again this is coming from the buyer. I can’t recommend Dave highly enough. – Chuck S.

WoW! Yes, this is the word that came to my mind after closing on my property just yesterday. Dave Corum is my hero, yes that he is for me personally now. After trying for years and listing with numerous agents…on the market – off the market….. Dave sold my property in 62 days!! It’s not always about the numbers, that are important – it’s how its handled. Dave listened to me from the get-go, he was compassionate & realistic as he guided me through the decision-making process. From the listing to the closing sale. I know Dave Corum will be an asset on your team – I highly recommend him for your real estate needs. – Amy Sosin

Dave Corum helped me with the process of selling my parents’ and aunt’s jointly owned property after they all had passed away. Dave was very professional yet easy-going and accommodating, making what could have been a very difficult and emotional process for me a very simple one. I appreciated his honest, clear and professional advice that kept me focused on the what, how and when of what needed to happen, all in a very manageable timeframe. I also appreciated the promptness in responding to any questions I had. The process went without a hitch and the property sold within 12 hours of listing. Thanks, Dave! – Mararita Taylor

Truly blessed to work with such a upstanding gentleman who was willing to listen to our needs for such a monumental purchase and new chapter in our life. – Alexis Hodges

Dave is a great guy to work with. Most agents won’t even return your calls when you’re from out of state but he even took time out from his vacation to help us with our purchase. 1st class guy. Thanks – Lamar Gregory

I will use Dave Corum again and again. He was the seller’s agents at the time of our transaction, but he made us feel like the buyer’s agent. At a time when most agents are so busy that its hard to get a simple call back, he made contact even when he was on vacation. He is #1 in my book. Thanks – Donnie Burnette

Dave was given a challenging property, as I was living away from Loudon at the time of listing. He was completely professional and always kept me up to date on progress and issues. I would recommend Dave without hesitation to anyone wanting to buy/sell in the greater Knoxville area. – Kim

Dave was great. He was a lifesaver while going through the stress of buying my first home. – Joni Aslinger

Dave was extremely helpful in finding us a place on Norris lake. His dedication to us as clients was superb! This real estate transaction wasn’t our first rodeo. Dave was very easy to work with and we felt very comfortable with his demeanor.

He presented himself in a very professional manner and gave his total attention to both of us!

Dave Corum displays outstanding competence in real estate and the surrounding factors involved. His dedication went above and beyond a Realtor’s duty.

I have bought several homes over the years, and Dave is by far the best realtor that I’ve had the pleasure of working with! He was not only professional, but also very knowledgeable. I told Dave what kind of home I was looking for and he worked extremely hard to find the right fit for me and my family. Dave showed us areas and neighborhoods that I hadn’t even considered, and in the end we bought a house in a neighborhood he told us about. I highly recommend Dave and will use him again. – Leslie Stewart

For me, Dave has helped me launch my career in the renovation business by working closely and enthusiastically to find the perfect match for projects I undertake. Dave is not in the business to make a sale; he is in the business to watch people grow and has had a continuous part in the process well after closing. He is genuinely motivated in serving other and is extremely knowledgeable in his area of business. – Reed Stewart, Director of Innovation at Reed Renovations

Dave has an altruistic spirit that serves him well, not only in his professional life, but his personal life as well. His outlook on life is amazing and he is one of the best relationship builders I know. Good relationships take time and effort and he is willing to go above and beyond to ensure the relationship is thriving. Whenever I call upon him, he knows just how to get things done and quickly I might add. He is a natural leader and does not hesitate to work a little harder or a little longer, to ensure the task at hand is done. His fervent dedication to his family, his friends, and his job is humbling. He is dependable, loyal, and witt! That’s a great combination.

I’ve known Dave for years. He’s always been a perfectionist to the nth degree. That means he works hard to be the most knowledgeable person he can be on any subject that may help the people for whom he works.
