LEBANON, TN., – Crye-Leike, REALTORS is proud to recognize Lebanon based Realtor Helen McPeak for her many years of service as a dedicated volunteer with the annual Wilson County Fair.  Helen is a Realtor with Crye-Leike based out of the company’s Lebanon branch office located at 1432 West Main Street in Lebanon, Tennessee.


“When I’m not helping people sell their properties or helping them find their dream home I help out at the Wilson County Fair Office,” said Helen.  “I have volunteered for the fair for 17 years with scheduling times for more than 500 volunteers, promotion of the different events and doing anything that needs to be done.”


The success of the Wilson County Fair, according to Helen is attributed to all the volunteers who work many long hours and rollout the red carpet to welcome everyone who attends.  Last year’s attendance was 366,000.  In 2006 it was 416,000.  Attendance took a dip in 2007 as a result of triple digit temperatures during the fair’s nine-day run.


“We have more than 100 committees that tend to every detail and I stay in contact with the chairs of each committee to make sure they have the people and the items they need to put on their show or event,” said Helen. “The real challenge is to have people assigned to all of the many different places during the hours the fair is operating.”


Helen says her work with the fair has opened the door to many opportunities to assist fellow volunteers in the buying and selling of their homes.  At the core of her involvement is her own personal experience of growing up in rural Tennessee.


“My interests and passion for helping with the fair is probably related to growing up on a farm in the southern part of Wilson County,” said Helen.  “My husband and three sons now farm in their spare time on the land that has been in my family for 200 years.  My roots run deep in Wilson County and I am truly a Tennessee Volunteer.”


So many people and children especially never get to experience the farm life says Helen, so the Wilson County Fair gives them a chance to learn where food comes from and experience first hand what the animals look like and they can even get up close and personal with them.


“You can see the results of planting seeds and the rewards of harvesting the many vegetables and farm crops that people exhibit, even taste country ham and sample honey made from bees,” said Helen.  “The fair has a farm day exhibit especially for children where they can milk a cow, gather eggs, dig potatoes out of the ground and much more.”


Of course Crye-Leike, REALTORS will be represented with a booth at the fair? a red & white tent where sales associates will exhibit all of the current listed properties for sale on a big screen TV.  Agents will also have plenty of Crye-Leike pens, note pads, calendars and balloons to give away along with being available to answer questions and talk to people about real estate and the market.  There will also be a drawing for a beautiful patio table and chairs.  To qualify stop by the Crye-Leike booth and fill out an information card to be entered.


“Crye-Leike is also a sponsor of the Truck and Cash Give-A-Way,” said Helen.  “Only sponsors can give out those tickets for anyone to have a chance to win a truck on Tuesday evening or cash on the other nights.  Our agents usually give tickets to their clients as a thank you for doing business with Crye-Leike.”


Helen is a licensed Affiliate Broker in Tennessee working with buyers and sellers in and around Wilson, Davidson and Rutherford counties.  She is a member of the Eastern Middle Tennessee Association of Realtors (EMTAR), Tennessee Association of Realtors (TAR) and National Association of Realtors (NAR).  Helen specializes in all types of residential real estate sales as a top Producer for Crye-Leike as a Multi-Million Dollar Club Member.
